SUPERBOWL IS COMING, READY WITH SOME KICKIN’ APPS!

31 Jan , 2013  

 

 

Hey, I love a good football game as much as the next sporty girl. But let’s be honest, I am always the one running for the couch and hushing the crowd every time the commercials come on. While I’ve been a bit disappointed in general in the last couple years, there are always one or two commercials that really stick out and become favorites. And, even for the ones that flop, it’s fun to see the creativity of the ads.


 And, of course, I am always looking for a way to experience this love for Superbowl commercials in APP form! Hey, thats what I do!

 For others with the same desire, check out these great SUPERBOWL apps!

 *A+ SUPERBOWL COMMERCIALS* (Free on iOS) which is an easy to use, running list of YouTube videos of the best Superbowl commercials of years past.    Spend some time on the site reviewing “classics” like 2010’s Parisian Love or the Budweiser Clydesdale Streaker. If these don’t rejuvenate your passion for Superbowl commercials, nothing will!
I would note, though, that I don’t recommend using the app as a substitute for watching the ads live. While the app claims it will update its contents as the game progresses, it seems some links aren’t valid, and I wouldn’t want you to miss the best ad of this year!  Plus, some of my absolute favorites from years past (Mini Darth Vader anyone!?) aren’t represented on the app!
