The Best iPhone Apps for Lego Lovers

Remember playing with Lego as a child? Who doesn’t?

Almost everyone these days remembers growing up with a plastic storage tub filled with primary coloured interlocking blocks. The great thing about Lego was that it was fun whether you were a boy or a girl, two years old or twelve years old and whether you were into cars, spacecraft, pirate ships or anything else. No matter what you were interested in, you could build anything you liked out of Lego blocks and let your imagination be your guide.

Now that you are grown up, you are probably more likely to be found playing with your iPhone than with a set of Lego blocks. However, you can get a bit of a nostalgic Lego fix on your phone with some of the great Lego apps out there. These fun apps put a brand new twist on an old favourite toy, letting you relive your youth and play with Lego in a whole new way.

Here are some of the best Lego iPhone apps available: 

Lego Photo

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see your face made entirely out of Lego? You can simply snap a photo with this fun little app and the Lego version of your face will appear. This is a very simple app, as the photo to Lego conversion is all that happens. However, it is free so why not download it for a few minutes of amusement? You might even discover that you look good in Legos!

Lego Step-by-Step

This little free app could come in very useful the next time you have some actual Legos to play with. It shows you the step by step instructions for creating almost everything out of the little building blocks, including a car, a plane and so much more. There are 10 different instruction manuals for simple Lego items, showing you which pieces to use and how to put them together. Of course, it is also fun to simply make your own Lego creations from your imagination.

Lego Batman Gotham City Games

This app consists of a series of games which are super quick and can be played in only a few minutes, perfect for enjoying on the go when you are waiting for a bus or an appointment. As you progress through each game, you will unlock a series of wallpapers for your iPhone. There are 16 Batman-themed mini games in total, as well as a lite version that you can sample before you buy. This app sells for only $0.99 and is a lot of fun! 

Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4

This Lego iPhone App is a much more complex and interactive game than the Batman games; featuring excellent graphics and lots of intricate gameplay, which takes you on adventures all throughout the world of the young wizard. The app will work on both the iPhone and the iPad and costs $4.99 to download, but will only work with the 4.1 and not on the older versions. If you have enjoyed the other Lego games on various consoles you will really love this one, whether or not you are a huge fan of Harry Potter.

iRate Lego Pro

If you are a serious Lego lover and you spend your spare time building lots of impressive creations, this app allows you to join an online community where other Lego fanatics upload photos of their builds and rate each other’s handiwork. You can share your photos as well as browse through the photos of others and submit ratings. This can also be a great place to get some inspiration on what Lego project to tackle next. It costs $1.99 to download.

These are just a few of the great iPhone apps out there for Lego lovers. Why not reminisce about this great toy by downloading one of these fun apps to your iPhone and play with Lego in a new way?
