Get Appy column showcases apps for kids of all ages

Lillie-Beth Brinkman came by my office a couple weeks ago to discuss something very important.

Lillie-Beth is our Assistant Features Editor and writes the ‘Get Appy‘ for The Oklahoman and

She opened the conversation in hushed tones, so nobody could overhear her.

“Do you play Temple Run?”

I responded as professionally as I could:

“Uh … yeah. Who doesn’t?”

The result of that conversation and others that Lillie-Beth had about the iOS game led her to write this column about Temple Run and the nature of that game and many others like it on the market.

If you’re already playing the game, there’s a good chance you are in school or heard about it from the child who lives at your house and goes to school. A group of sixth graders I recently talked to from different schools are all big fans.

Lillie-Beth and I both have children that are in the same age range, so it should be no surprise that we’ve both been introduced to the simplistic, yet addictive game.

So I write this blog today only to point two things:

  1. I’m awesome at Temple Run … with a high score of 5,325,540
  2. That Lillie-Beth’s weekly Get Appy columns are fun to read and something worth finding each Tuesday.
