We should really celebrate our mothers every day. They are the reason we're here, after all. But to make things simple, there's one day dedicated specifically to the women who raised us. It's important to make the most of the occasion but that puts a lot of pressure on us, the children of the world, to make sure our moms know how much we care during this twenty-four hour period. Luckily, we don't have to tackle this task alone. With the help of the nine apps we've put together, you can make sure that you make this year's Mother's Day a memorable one.
Ah, Thanksgiving. A relaxing day full day of floats, football, family, and food, it may be the perfect holiday — that is, unless you're in charge of the meal. Any number of things can sink your supper, from a dry, overcooked bird to subpar side dishes. So if you're worried your meal won't be memorable, we've got eight apps that'll have you giving thanks for the App Store come Thursday.
Games are rarely just released and left as-is anymore these days, especially on the App Store. Often, they’re tweaked and expanded with new content to match up with real-life events — particularly with notable holidays. We’re just a couple days away from Halloween, and many popular iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch games have been updated with content that celebrates the spooky season. Whether it’s new weapons and costumes or fresh locales and missions to enjoy, these 10 games are (or will soon be) decked out with Halloween flair.

Need fodder for a spirited Fourth of July discussion? We've gathered eight apps that will walk you through the important moments of American history, teach you about all of the major players that helped shape it, provide firsthand accounts from those who experienced it, and much more.

I've always been pretty stubborn when it comes to resolutions, and something tells me I’m not going to find an app to convince me to start bettering myself on the day I’m most likely to be overweight, depressed, broke and/or hungover.
