Enterprise Mobility: iPhone, iPad Apps to Celebrate July 4th

By Nathan Eddy  |  Posted 2011-06-30 Email Print this article Print
The most American of holidays, the Fourth of July—or Independence Day—is marked by parades, copious flag-waving, barbecues and, of course, fireworks. However you decide to celebrate the long holiday weekend, whether with delayed flights or sitting on jammed highways (we kid, we kid), the wizards who populate Apple's App Store with hundreds of thousands of applications have more than enough holiday-appropriate selections to bolster your spirits. From grilling guides to holiday-planning helpers, there are also plenty of adaptable applications that can give you tips to organize parties and figure out where the best place is to celebrate the occasion. While our Founding Fathers may never have imagined an America where digital fireworks displays could be held in the palm of your hand or virtual maps could help you find the best place to park your 21st century version of a horse and buggy along the parade route, they would certainly be impressed by the wealth of patriotic ingenuity that still courses through the veins of their American sons and daughters. Happy Fourth of July!
