If you’re not sure whether you’re ready for the upcoming holiday, here’s some mobile apps for the Fourth of July that will make your holiday weekend a success and keep you in the patriotic spirit!
This iPhone app will help you find local events such as shows, concerts, and free events going on for the holiday weekend (or any time) and can even recommend certain events based on where your friends are going so you don’t end up alone for the holiday.
2. Camp finder
If you’re the outdoorsy type, this might be one to check out. Camp finder shows you RV parks, RV resorts, and campgrounds wherever you’re wanting to camp and even gives you information about the rates, what facilities they have, any discounts available, their contact information, reviews from people who have camped there, as well as photos so you can look before you decide.
If you’re planning on having the traditional summer cookout, this app can give you tons of recipes to choose from that you can barbecue right in your background. Plus it helps with cooking and even picking out your groceries so you don’t forget the hamburger buns this year.
This is pretty nifty if you’re afraid of running into some storms or rain on the Fourth. It tracks the weather and lets you pick locations like your own house and your friend’s houses, or even a lake or park. This way you can see what spots are most likely going to get rained on and plan your fireworks or cookout somewhere else.
5. Beer wizard
Nothing says “‘Murica'” like a cold beer on the Fourth of July. This app helps you decide on the perfect beer by letting you choose the bitterness, color, and alcohol content to give you recommendations.
If you’re the competitive type, you might want to check out this trivia app. It will test your knowledge of American history and give you the chance to prove you’re the most patriotic of all your friends.
This app is perfect for all you parents who want to just chill and drink your beer. All you have to do is open up the app and let the little ones draw and color American related photos and you won’t have to worry about them running around the hot bbq or knocking over fireworks.
For all you smartphone photographers, this app is probably exactly what you’ve been looking for. It lets you take photos with a slower shutter speed so you can paint the air with sparklers or take long exposures of fireworks to impress all your Instagram followers with your skills.
If you’re not so into photography, this app will let you take normal photos of your friends and family and decorate them with patriotic borders and images.
