Celebrate Our Nation’s Independence with These 4 Patriotic Apps!

 

Perhaps the quintessence of all American holidays, the 4th of July is coming upon us quickly, which means that people everywhere across the nation will be preparing for fun cookouts, spending time with family and friends, and, of course, fireworks.

But what happens if you get stuck in traffic on the highway (July 4th IS one of the most-traveled holidays, after all!)? What happens if the fireworks are a bit delayed? Will you allow your patriotic spirit to dwindle in the sight of those setbacks?

Well, now you don’t have to worry about anything raining on your patriotic parade! If you find yourself in a traffic jam, waiting for fireworks, or (dare we say it?) just plain bored, check out these four awesome patriotic apps you can download today to prepare yourself for such a moment!

America Deluxe ($1.99) – Not the traveling kind? Want to get out but have no time to take a vacation? No problem! Just download America Deluxe! This app will provide you with a virtual tour of the wonders of America, including information and photos on our nation’s cities, parks, history, and beauty. You can also find a selection of traditional patriotic tunes AND a biography of every single United States President! Now how’s THAT for patriotic?

Patriotic Music Box ($0.99) – No need to break out your iPod dock or drag out your old stereo system to play patriotic tunes during your 4th of July celebration! The Patriotic Music Box can provide some awesome songs for you! You can sing along to 12 classic American anthems, including America the Beautiful and Yankee Doodle Dandy, along with several others. This would be a great app to have on hand when you’re watching some beautiful fireworks!

3D Fireworks 2 ($0.99) – Speaking of beautiful fireworks, if you aren’t able to see any that evening (or just don’t want to get bitten by mosquitoes or get neck cramps from staring up at the sky all night), then this is the app for you! 3D Fireworks 2 allows you to create your own fireworks display with fun 3D graphics and full touch-screen control! There’s even an autopilot mode for you to enjoy the show in many different ways. Oh, and you don’t have to worry about putting out fires if you use this app instead of shooting off fireworks yourself!

U.S. States Quizzle (free) – Want to see how much you know about your country? Then download the U.S. States Quizzle and check it out for yourself! You’ll be quizzed on all sorts of facts such as states’ official flowers, ratification dates, slogans, state mottos and more!

So what are you waiting for? Go download some (or all!) of these apps and test or show off your American pride! And make sure you watch our Facebook fan page and Twitter page for a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT coming very soon! You WON’T want to miss it!

Stay Ahead of the Weather With These 5 Unique and Effective Weather Apps!

Spring is just around the corner, and you know what that means – storms! The Midwest is known for having lots of crazy weather patterns that seem to pop out of nowhere (remember the record-breaking floods from last year?).

Sometimes, though, you may not be in a place in which you can access the news. You may even be stuck in traffic and see ominous black clouds looming in your direction, and you need to know what’s going on right away.

That’s where we come in the picture! We at Bodacious Cases proudly present five helpful apps that will warn you of potentially dangerous weather and help you plan ahead!

The Weather Channel (official app)

A longtime favorite and probably the most used weather app, The Weather Channel’s Official App is an overall solid app that houses a great selection of features. Users can access full weather forecasts and radar maps, and even video information about the weather from The Weather Channel. Best of all, this very credible and easy-to-use app is free in the App Store.

Outside

Want some color and fun with your weather? Then this is the app for you! Outside is a visually stimulating app that colorfully displays the current weather right away. This app also uses a “swipe” interface for viewing forecasts, and it can also notify you of certain weather conditions (for example, when it’s nice enough outside to wear a t-shirt). This app can be all yours for only $2.99 in the App Store.

Weather Doodle

Turn checking the weather into an imaginative, artistic experience with this app! Powered by WeatherBug, Weather Doodle is an app that shows the weather in a beautiful way with its animated art. You can view your weather conditions and forecasts in gorgeous animation. The app features several themes that can be downloaded from within the app itself. It can be purchased for only $0.99 in the App Store.

Storm Sim Free

Have you ever wished for a mean thunderstorm to pop up in the atmosphere over you, even if meteorologists insist that the week will consist of lots and lots of sunshine? Well, now you can make your own storm happen! Create your own perfect storm with Storm Sim Free! If you’re in the mood for heavy thunder with little rain, let it rip! If you only want to hear heavy rain against a window with only the occasional roll of thunder, be our guest. If you simply want to hear white-noise rain so you can sleep more peacefully, then your wish is granted. You can create your own storm with this app for free!

RadarScope

If you’re a storm-chaser at heart or simply a weather fanatic, then this is the app that will tickle your fancy! RadarScope lets you “chase” the storms without risking your life! It allows you to view the NEXRAD Level 3 radar data, along with Tornado, Severe Thunderstorm, and Flash Food Warning issued by the National Weather Service. You can view the latest reflectivity, velocity, and more in all of the United States, Guam, and Puerto Rico! This means you can see how the weather is for family members and friends who live in different areas of the United States. This fun app costs $9.99 in App Store, but it’s well worth the money!

Oh, and along with the weather, keep your eyes out on the horizon for the release of our Bodacious Case, coming soon in the spring! Check out our Facebook page and Twitter page for more information!
