Happy Birthday, America!

These apps will definitely enhance your Fourth of July celebration, and some of them are great all year round!

Pop Sugar had an awesome roundup of July 4 apps,  and here are some of my favorites:

Fireworks ARCADE

Free for iOs and Android

fireworksWith this app, you can create your own fireworks displays. Choose the music you’d like for your display and tap your screen where you’d like the fireworks to appear. Shake your device it at the end of the display for a “grand finale.” The app also features several fireworks-inspired arcade games to play. Buy the 99-cent version if you want to get rid of the apps!

Grill Guide

$1 for iPhone

A must-have app for pit masters, the Grill Guide app provides step-by-step instructions on how to grill more than 100 different foods. The app even provides a ruler so you can measure the thickness of your food item.

15000+ Fruit Recipes

$2 for iOs

You simply must have delicious, seasonal fruit dishes for your Fourth of July bash, so download 15000+ Fruit Recipes to help you out! Search by course, fruit type or ingredient. Many of the recipes have photos and almost all of them feature nutrition information.


Free for iOs and Android; membership costs vary 

This wasn’t in Pop Sugar’s roundup, but I love this app. Use Rdio to play your favorite music during your Fourth of July party or neighborhood fireworks display. This on-demand streaming music service easily connects users to more than 20 million songs. Find any song you want to listen to and listen to it instantly without hearing a single ad. The interface is easier to use than Spotify and I think it’s easier to view and share what other users are listening to. After a 14-day free trial, it’s $5 a month to stream unlimited music from Rdio’s desktop website, and $10 month to stream on the website and apps. There are unlimited streaming family plans on sale July 3, 4 and 5, so get buyin!
