The free app is available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, as well as Xbox One and Windows Holographic. The app has your fidget spinner taking center screen, and as you swipe the screen to spin the spinner, your revolutions and rotations per minute (RPM) are displayed along the side of the screen. The more revolutions you spin, the more coins you earn that can be used to customize your spinner.
