ASMR Rainbow Jelly
Yet another ASMR app, this one is somewhat special. As the name suggests, the main focus is on colourful jelly: basically, you get to create and then chew through loads of rainbow sweets. In addition, you can turn the sounds on – that is, if you are a fan of chewing sounds of mukbang videos.
The game was downloaded over 10 million times on Google Play, which speaks about its popularity.
In terms of functionality, the app runs does not always run smoothly. In fact, I found it rather buggy and freezing too often. The interface is, obviously, very vibrant. Overall, though, this ASMR app is simple and straightforward.
At 185 MB, the app might take up some storage space on your phone.
There are ads, too – perhaps a bit too many of those. They are there even if you turn off your internet connection. Paid features are there, too, allowing you to unlock extra sweets.
