Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

Penny Skateboards have been around since 1983 (with no ties to Tom Penny), and their bright, plastic bodies with neon wheels are instantly recognisable. Penny Time is the "official" Penny Skateboards game, but don't be put off by the product affiliation — it's bleeding aces.

It's kind of like a cross between an endless runner skater game and a rhythm game. You skate through suburbia on your Penny board, performing tricks by swiping the screen. Ostensibly, you do this by hitting visual targets on the course; but, as you play, you'll notice that the targets occur in time with the beats in the fantastically toe-tapping music. Rack up points, and you can customise your skater — and, of course, your board. Gnarly!

Also keep your eye out for Competition Play, where the winner gets a Penny board of their very own.
