Garfield may not be known as being one of the most active cats in town, but if even he can manage to put one paw in-front of another, surely your kids can too. This loveable feline is on a mission to combine exercise with technology using this fitness tracking app!

Simply set walking/jogging goals for your kids by placing a photo of a treat next to a time period. If your kids successfully achieve it, a little present icon appears next to the picture. Classic comic strips also appear on-screen to give your child a well-deserved chuckle. Stats are automatically recorded using your GPS to give you an idea of how active your kids are, organized by day and week. Seeing your children's positive results may even persuade you to put that last slice of lasagna down, and get your jog on too!

▲ Exercise with Garfield as you both stride towards the goal in the round picture. A yellow ring will appear around it to show how close you are to achieving it!

▲ Personalize the goals set by taking or uploading a picture. The present icon indicates it has been accomplished!

▲ Nothing is too cool for this cat. Unlock new clothes to jog in style.

If you subscribe, you can gain access to even more features! These include coaching objectives and fitness reports sent right to your email. Always remember, no matter how much you exercise, you must make time to look great. Use coins to build up Garfield's style by purchasing them from a number of outfits available in the store.

Show that there is more to life than eating, sleeping, snoozing, napping, and lasagna. Inspire fitness with this app - after all, a healthy body can create a healthy mind, just ask Garfield.

In this casual fishing game, you’ll meet an old man who doesn’t need a fancy rod or a pricy bait collection to reel in the big ones. Instead, all he needs is a good harpoon and your good sense of timing! Join him on a great journey across the sea as you reel in fish of various shapes and sizes for his fish farm!

Mind the boat’s health bar as it depletes while you sail on. Catching fish adds more time to it, therefore it helps to catch one with each shot you take. You can also reel the fish in quicker by tapping the harpoon button once it’s struck.

Once the trip is done though, you have the option to sell your catch or bring them to the farm. Fish in the farm constantly produce additional gold to help improve the old fisherman’s boat and his harpoon. You can also bring one of the farm fishes along and gain special bonuses This, in turn, allows you to go further and further out into the ocean and discover even more exotic species to fill his little enterprise!

▲ Time your harpoon and nab as many fishes as you can to keep sailing.

▲ Expand your fish farm and have it produce extra gold

▲ Purchase better equipment for catching more elusive species.
