Independence Day iOS Apps For July 4th Celebrations
In a few days’ time the United States will of course be celebrating their defeat of the United Kingdom on the 4th of July to commemorate the July 4th 1776 declaration of independence from us Brits, and haven’t they come a long way since then?
Obviously the US Independence Day is one big occasion for our American cousins and over the pond here in the UK we don’t really hold it against them for rubbing it in our faces every year, as we are all very good friends now.
So as the 4th of July is only a few days away and all Americans will be celebrating we thought we’d bring you a few Independence Day celebration apps for the iPhone iPod Touch and Apple iPad, so let’s get right to those apps shall we…
So we’ll kick off with the Independence Day Countdown app for iOS devices, an app that obviously lets you count down the time until your very special day so you can make sure all the family is ready and the celebrations are set.
