Inventive and always joking, physicists Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) live in a reality of their own, still trying to adjust to a world that, apparently, they do not understand. Their intelligence contrasts sharply with the sociability and ambitions of their gorgeous neighbor Penny (Kaley Cuoco).

10. Ender’s Game
Not an app, but we had to have one of the best science fiction books ever written.

Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program, but didn’t make the cut.
