Best ways to wind down on iPhone

With Sir Alex Ferguson choosing to call it a day at Manchester United after 26 years and 49 trophies, he'll soon join the thousands of sharp-minded pensioners with a bit of time on their hands.

What better way to fill those gaps in between tea breaks and trips to the garden centre than to indulge in some top-quality iPhone gaming?

Of course, your average senior citizen will likely have different tastes and requirements for their iOS gaming apps, so let's consider the Top 5 iPhone games for pensioners.

Don't worry, Sir Alex: we've got you covered.

Oooo, look at those gently taxing spatial puzzles and that gloriously soothing atmosphere.

Gardening Mama may not be the best game on this list. In fact, let's face it, it's clearly the worst. But it's by no means a bad casual time filler. And more importantly, it centres on the perennial favourite pastime of retired folks. Yep, horticulture. At the very least, think of it as a gateway drug into the deeper retirement kicks featured elsewhere on this list.
