If you're looking to beat the heat, take a break from all the festivities or personalize your patriotism this year, the genius developers who have their apps listed on Apple's App Store can provide you with a multitude of ways to express yourself. From guides to America's most important Revolutionary War Websites, to nostalgia-tinged vintage Fourth of July e-cards, or even a virtual fireworks display you can design and deploy yourself, this year's Independence Day celebrations are more fun than ever.
