Christmas 2011 is now but a memory and New Year’s Eve is imminent -- but are you ready to share the joy with friends, thanks to your Mac or iOS device? Or maybe you’ve cut the cord on your cable or satellite and aren’t sure of where you can watch the ball drop at midnight? Fear not, we’ve got some ideas for making the most of your New Year’s Eve with your Mac, iPhone, iPod touch and/or iPad.
Assuming you're in the mood to close out the year with a bang, there's nothing worse than having absolutely nothing to do on New Year's Eve. But whether you're looking to host something at home or find somewhere to revel in public, the App Store has you covered.
There are only a few days left in 2011 -- and you know what that means. People bugging you asking if you're making any New Year's resolutions. You've tried all that before, but it's harder than it sounds. Well, experts say if you have a partner encouraging you, keeping track of things it helps. And who's there with you more often than your iOS device. Nobody, that's who. So check out these apps for sticking to it.
The iPhone may be great at just about everything it does, with the exception of being a reliable alarm clock -- it turns out that non-recurring alarms failed as the clock rolled into the New Year. Maybe Apple figured everyone would be partying in Times Square?
2011 is right around the corner, and with it has come a series of New Year-themed apps, including one from popular men’s magazine Maxim, who have teamed up with developer Elite Gudz to create the free Champagne Popper app.
With Christmas over and the in-laws gone, you’ve no doubt gotta a mountain of dishes and cleaning to do. We know that thanks to the amazing powers afford you by leftover turkey and stuffing, you’ll be able to clean your house into submission over the next few days. We here at Mac|Life salute your efforts, and feel that you totally deserve to party hearty as a reward for a job well done. Fortunately, New Years Eve is just around the corner, giving you the perfect excuse to cut loose and trash your home all over again. To help get your year’s end party started off on the right foot, we’ve put together a list of ten iOS applications—some free, others not so much—to ensure that you get down to celebrating as hard and as easily as possible.
When it comes to New Year’s Eve, it’s all about the party. From
elegant, seven-course dinners to all-night drunken ragers, how you ring
in the new decade sets the tone for the remaining 365 days; and since
we don’t have the Macworld Expo to look forward to this year, the
effects of a bad party can cast a particularly gloomy cloud over the
first few weeks of 2010.But this year, you hold your own fate
in your hands--literally. With an iPhone in your pocket, even the
lamest of gatherings can be magically transformed into something that’s
at least cool enough to chronicle on your Facebook page.
