Super Bowl XLVIII: Score a Touchdown with These Six Apps (Plus One Extra)

Posted by Carter Dotson on January 31st, 2014

The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and as always, there are plenty of apps that can help you watch the game or enrich the gameday experience. Appropriately enough, here are six apps; with an extra app that’s not necessarily football-related but could make a Super Bowl party more fun.

Fox Sports Go: If, for whatever reason, you can’t get to a TV but have an iPad with you, Fox Sports’ official app will be streaming the Super Bowl on iPads. iPhone and iPod users are out of luck, and the app requires login with one of six supported TV providers, so not everyone can take advantage of it. But for those in the Venn diagram of “able to watch Super Bowl on iPad” and “need to watch Super Bowl on iPad,” Fox has got you covered.

SportsCenter: Maybe you just want to follow the score of the game while it’s happening, checking stats and whatnot. ESPN’s app is one of the best for that, and its push notifications ensure that no important sports news goes missed. So if, say, you get stuck working on Super Sunday but want to know when a team scores, this app will keep you in the know.

NFL Mobile: Another way to get scores is with the league’s official app. This boasts the advantage of also having game highlights, streaming video, Super Bowl commercials, and even support for those actually at the game or in New York with iBeacon support. [Editor's Disclaimer: If in New York, please don't use the app while on the "toboggan run."]

NFL Connect: The one thing the NFL playoffs are missing is the “game-within-a-game” of fantasy football. This app might fill some of that void during the Super Bowl: compete with friends by guessing which events will happen first to get points and filling out your 4x4 bingo card. Look, it’s either this or fantasy Puppy Bowl.

Foodie Recipes: Look, you could order pizza and wings for Sunday, or you could cook some frozen appetizers. Boring. Why not do something a bit more creative, like make the food yourself. This app provides some fancy recipes for gameday like beer cheddar waffles. I’ve never had one, but as a Chicagoan I love decadent food, and I want one.

Seamless: So let's say you try to make a beer cheddar waffle and you fail miserably and now the kitchen's messed up as though Octodad rolled on through - like what would happen if I tried to make one. You’ll need a backup plan. Don’t just call a pizza chain: use this app to find plenty of nearby places that deliver, including perhaps off-the-beaten-path ones that might be able to bring food before the game ends! Huzzah!

Spaceteam: Look, do you really want to watch a freezing Bruno Mars perform at the halftime show? Or watch eons of pregame coverage? You’ll have far more fun if you gather together some iOS and Android devices for this fun party game, which now has an experimental 8-player mode available from the upgrades menu. There’ll be more yelling and screaming than when a big play happens in the 4th quarter.

Figure Out What's Happening Tonight With Wendr

Posted by Carter Dotson on August 3rd, 2012

Wendr is an app that wants to make users simplify the process of figuring out what do on a night out through the use of a wonderful thing called technology.Users log in with Facebook or with a proprietary email account. Then, friends can be found by searching through contacts, Facebook friends, or by email address.

The first step is to list what the plans for tonight are. Going out? Add a time and place for people to possibly join up. Open to suggestions? Use the "Dinner and a movie?" option. Staying in? List that. Have some clandestine activity that no one else needs to know about? That’s what the “Not sharing” icon is there for.

Need plans? See what other Wendr users are doing, and view their contact info to help coordinate plans.Wendr integrates with Uber to help schedule rides, Night Out to find new destinations, and Seamless for food delivery on those nights in.
