Next time you find yourself stuck in a long line or waiting out a seemingly never-ending flight delay, look to your Android device for some entertainment. We've rounded up seven apps that are worth a download.

With smartphones and tablets and the cloud, we've gotten used to multi-tasking and efficiency. God forbid we spend five minutes not connected to our devices or doing something. Next time you find yourself stuck in a long line or waiting out a seemingly never-ending flight delay, look to your Android device for some entertainment. Below, we've rounded up seven apps that are worth a download (we didn't include Twitter, since we feel that it's a given).

1. Reddit is Fun

Reddit is a treasure trove of links, pictures and facts, but let's be honest, the social news site's interface isn't the best. Android users can benefit from Reddit Is Fun, which lets users browse Reddit's homepage and “subreddit” pages.

2. Pocket

A lot of places have crappy reception; don't let that get in your way while you're waiting for your next move. Pocket lets you save articles, videos and websites for offline viewing, and it automatically syncs to your phone, tablet or computer. If you do have reception, you can share articles directly from the app. Pocket just edged out another great app for offline reading, NewsRob, which autosyncs with Google Reader in the background to enable offline reading.

3. New York Times

If you're looking to learn a thing or two while you're stalled, you can't go wrong with the Grey Lady. Stay up to date with the latest news from the New York Times (if you have reception; otherwise save some articles to Pocket or Newsrob!). The free version offers the "Top News" section, but you'll have to pony up and subscribe to unlock all the sections in the app of the Times, including blogs, videos and photo galleries.

4. Who Becomes Rich?

Test your wits with Who Becomes Rich, a multiple-choice trivia game. You can compete with friends for a high score or play privately, answering hundreds of questions about sports, movies, science, math, politics, pop culture and geography. Bored with the questions or looking to share your own knowledge? You can submit questions that'll be reviewed by the developer and possibly added to
the database.

5. SuperGNES Lite (SNES Emulator)

Remember Super Nintendo? Now you can play it on your Android device with this emulator. This product works great, but you'll have to find the ROMs for Super Mario World, Street Fighter, Donkey Kong, Super Metroid and more on your own (they're free,
too). The free version of this emulator app doesn't let you save your progress, but that doesn't mean it's not a great way to kill
a few minutes—and save Princess. One up!

6. Pinterest

Everyone's favorite timesuck! It's been a big month for Pinterest, which dropped invites and came to Android. The visual
social-bookmarking lets users collect and organize images and videos on the web into boards (think mood boards). If you
have a project, an apartment to decorate or a goal, Pinterest can quite literally help you visualize it.

7. Bebbled

If you're into frivolous time-killing and games are up your alley, try Bebbled. Align gems next to similar gems to nuke them, and repeat for 33 levels as the game gets harder and harder. Finished level one? Keep going; there are six levels in all. A multiplayer version is in the works, so you can play friends.

What apps do you use to kill time? Tell us in the comments.
