4th of July Apps

4 Jul , 2015  

When we start planning for 4th of July, you know summer is finally in full swing.  And it feels oh so good to say that time is here!

To help with the planning I’ve got the Top 4 for the 4th!  These apps might be a bit off the beaten path, but (cue patriotic music) America was founded on the principals of exploring the new and unseen!  So this weekend, exercise your patriotic duty and explore these new apps!

American Revolution: History Challenge Lite (Free)

If you aren’t 100% confident about your knowledge of history leading up to American Independence Day, you should check out this trivia based app.  You can test your knowledge, and get better along the way, with the fast-paced history quiz.  The app is written by a college history professor but is way more fun than sitting through a class lecture!
 
Holiday Picture It! (Free)
Add a little fun and whimsey to your iPhone pics this 4th of July!  The app has packages for all holidays, but the Independence Day pack will put more Americana-pizazz into your pics than ever.  Add an Uncle Sam hat, fireworks, 4th of July messaging or even hamburgers and hot dog images!  A fun way to update your images before posting them for the world to see!

Eventful (Free)
My friends and family always have one huge problem with planning our July 4th activities: Where will we get the best view of the fireworks?  Eventful is like yelp for local activities so you can search and get alerts for nearby fireworks shows, or buy tickets to events like night boat tours to get a truly magical experience.
Musical Fireworks 2 (Free)
I have another solution for you, just in case you don’t get the best viewing location for the fireworks!  You might have heard of “Fireworks Arcade”, one of the more popular build-your-own-digital-fireworks-show apps.  But I can top that!  Check out Musical Fireworks 2, a new free app that brings smartphone fireworks to a whole new level.  You can record and playback the shows you build, and even experience the shows in 3D!
