Like all other sports fans, we’re gearing up for the Super Bowl, and like all other technology fans, our preparation includes downloading some new apps. We’re not alone in wanting to bring technology to the big game, either! Thirty-six percent of viewers will use a second device during the Super Bowl, according to one study. If you count yourself among those 36 percent, here are our picks for the best apps to augment your Super Bowl experience.
Super Bowl XLVII Guide is the perfect app if you’re lucky enough to go to the game. It features a guide to all the official Super Bowl events, local restaurants, nightlife, and points of interest around New Orleans. It even sends push notifications with the buzz surrounding the big event.
American Football NFL Trivia Quiz has 250 multiple-choice questions and 9 different game modes to play either by yourself or with friends if the real game isn’t interesting enough to hold your attention. The modes include “Guess the Questions”, “Quiz Master”, “Race Against Time”, and “Battleships.” It even comes with Blue Tooth connection.
Pretend you’re actually in the game with NFL Kicker. You can choose to be a 49er or a Raven (or any other team for that matter) and flick your finger to “kick” the ball into the goal posts. You can even play with your Facebook friends in certain game modes. The game even lets you customize your jersey with your own name and number.
The Super Bowl isn’t the Super Bowl without game time snacks. Favorite Recipes has recipes for just about anything you think of. Prefer Mexican or Thai to the classic pizza and wings? This app has you covered. All recipes include photos and step-by-step directions for how to cook whatever it is you want to snack on.
A+ Superbowl Commercials is perfect for those of us who love the Super Bowl, but not the actual game. It has the best Super Bowl commercials from years past all in one place. If the commercials from this year don’t live up to expectation, and the Puppy Bowl isn’t really your cup of tea either, this will save the night.
