Here are some of the geekiest apps that nerds from all over the world would surely love to have on their smartphones and tablets.

Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time – iTunes App Store
Geeks love video games, and the next app on the list will have them immersed in a game while gaining knowledge at the same time. Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time, is an addictive and engaging maze game, where you have the choice to act as the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond, trying to keep the world safe from the Daleks. Game apps remain as the most downloaded application on the App store and on the Android Google store, and geeks get plenty of brain stimulating games to keep them busy like Words with Friends, Text Twist, and 4 Words 1 Pic.
