apps for some extra red, white, and blue spirit this July.
Light Up the Night…
Who says you can’t see fireworks during the day? “Fireworks
Display – Happy Fourth!” will give you a gorgeous view of those big sparklers
going off above the Beijing Olympic Stadium. Not exactly something you can see
from your back porch, huh? And the best part is that they’ll keep going in a
random mix ‘til you turn ‘em off, so you can enjoy them for as long as your
attention span can last.
The Good Kind of Mind
Going on a long car trip to celebrate the Fourth with your
cousins in Wyoming? Well, download “United States Facts” for some fun trivia to
keep your brain distracted from the annoying buzz from your little bro’s video
games. This app will give you any piece of info you ever wanted to know about
all fifty states, plus it’ll help ya memorize the capitals for geography class.
A Taste of the
If you love to cook, you’ll heart “4th of July Recipes.”
It’s got more than 200 tasty red, white, and blue-themed eats that you can test
out for your backyard BBQ this year. And if you like ‘em enough, who’s to say
that you can’t be patriotic on the other 364 days of the year, too?
Art With a Twist
“Magic Puzzles: Independence Day” will get you in the spirit
for the Fourth. It has a large selection of puzzles that range in difficulty,
so you can challenge yourself as much as ya want. And each puzzle rewards you
with a sweet pic of American art and culture when you finally get it together!
Be a Giver
It may be the country’s birthday, but the ground isn’t
likely to respond if you say something nice to it or make it somethin’ special.
So give your friends and family a reason to smile on this holiday with “4th
of July Gifts,” which lets you make personalized cards to send to all your fave
people. You can use your own pics if you want and add messages, too. When
you’re finished, your cards can be mailed, sent on Facebook, or just saved in
your Photo Library.
One Museum To-Go,
If you don’t live near Philadelphia, America’s most
interactive history museum can now be fit into the palm of your hand with the
“National Constitution Center” app. It gives you audio access to every exhibit
at the center, even the ones that travel. You’ll also get your own copy of the
U.S. Constitution to check out, and the app is constantly updated with news
stories relating to that oh-so-important document.
So chickies, what’re
your fave apps that focus on the good ol’ US of A?
