The finale to Breaking Bad is nigh, capping off 5 critically-acclaimed seasons of drug-fueled TV drama. While I’m sure most of you who watch it don’t want the show to end, we think we should be celebrating the achievements of Walter White and his serialized life, which so many of us have come to love. And to do this, we’ve rounded up the Top 5 Android Apps for Breaking Bad fans.
First cab off the rank is BaldBooth, an app that makes you bald. Arguably one of the most recognizable icons of Breaking Bad is Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston’s) bald head, so why not join in and see what you look like bald.
I’ve given it a try already and it’s pretty good given the right angle and lighting. Can’t say the same about how I look bald…

Breaking Bad Game
Next, we have an offering from broadcaster AMC itself, a Breaking Bad spin-off interactive graphic novel featuring none other than Jesse Pinkman. Subtitled “The Cost Of Doing Business”, you assume the role of Jesse and do all the lovely drug-related things you’ve come to expect from something with a Breaking Bad theme.
The game has mixed, but mostly good reviews at this point in time, so if you give it a shot, let us know how you find it. Note: Unfortunately for our international readers, it appears to be only available on Google Play from the States, but of course, there are other ways to get your hands on it if you really want to play…
