Stay active every day and keep yourself healthier with today’s first app worth downloading, Human: Move 30 Minutes or More. The app is a tracker that logs your time spent walking, running or biking outside, so you can see how much activity you’re getting (and should be getting) every day. We’ve also got two games for you to take into the weekend: Cosmoplan, a space-based game about guiding rockets to their destinations with careful planning and execution, and Zombie Highway: Driver’s Ed, an objective based driving game in which you have to fight off tons of attacking zombies.
Human: Move 30 Minutes or More (Free)
What’s it about? Human helps you track your activity and encourages you to be healthier by getting more exercise.
What’s cool? It’s essential to good health to get at least 30 minutes of solid exercise every day, but scheduling your free time for a workout can be difficult for many people, especially when the rest of your obligations seem to constantly be more important. Human is an app built to help you make sure you’re getting enough daily activity, and does so by tracking your movements every day whenever you’re outside walking, running or biking. You’ll be told how much time you’ve logged and how much more you should log within the app, and you can also track your weekly activity over time to see how much activity you’re getting, and how much you need.
Who’s it for? Anyone who could use a hand being more active and keeping track of just how active they’re being should check out Human.

What’s it about? Puzzle game Cosmoplan requires players to guide multi-stage rockets through various levels to collect stars before landing safely on different planets.
What’s cool? Like real missions to space, Cosmoplan has players flying rockets that have multiple components, with each piece dispatched and left behind during part of the journey. Your job is to use each stage of your rocket to redirect the next, navigating around obstacles and grabbing collectible stars as you aim your space module at a specific planet. You have to make all your plans and adjustments before you start, however: your rockets can only travel in a single direction, so you need each stage of the rocket aimed and set before you take off. Cosmoplan packs 60 levels that span three different worlds, and it’s an easy game to pick up, but gets challenging over time.
Who’s it for? If you’re a fan of careful, strategic puzzlers, check out Cosmoplan.
What’s it like? Also worth trying are Angry Birds Space and Rymdkapsel.
Zombie Highway: Driver’s Ed ($0.99)
What’s it about? Compete in different challenging races and drives in Zombie Highway: Driver’s Ed, but beware of the zombies that will latch onto your car and try to take you out along the way.
What’s cool? A spinoff of the original Zombie Highway, an endless driving game in which players avoid obstacles in an SUV while also trying to shake off attacking zombies, Zombie Highway: Driver’s Ed utilizes some of the same ideas, but with lots of additional challenges. You’re still out driving during the zombie apocalypse in Driver’s Ed, but this time, you’re trying to complete various objectives along the way. The more objectives you complete, the more points you earn, which can be spent upgrading your vehicle. And of course, you’ll kill tons of gory zombies along the way.
Who’s it for? Fans of the endless games and zombies shouldn’t miss this one.
What’s it like? You’ll definitely want to check out the original Zombie Highway, as well as Into the Dead.
