There are heaps of new apps coming out for all of the different app stores. Some of the ones we have written about recently include Angry Birds Rio coming out on the Amazon app store exclusively and also some new apps for 2011 Formula One on Android and iOS.

Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up in the morning and think “I really need a day off” or “I really can’t be bothered today”. Well now at the touch of the button you have excuses galore from an app… It’s called ‘Skiver’.

It was thought up by two entrepreneurs called Michael Dunn and Ryan Davies as a kind of tongue-in cheek app however it has become more than that as more and more people have downloaded it. Laurie Hanna from the Daily Mirror says that it’s possibly the answer to every slacker’s dreams as it offers tips to throwing sickies, not only that but it will even offer you suggestions on what to do on your day off!

Michael Dunn has said that it started out as a bit of fun as most of us have had the odd day where we have felt that we just need some time off, this app just allows you to do it more convincingly. So what do you have to do? Well, you enter in how many days off you want and then the app will not only suggest the suitable symptoms but it will also generate a text or email ready for you to send to your boss.
