The festival of St. Paddy's Day has become a global event. On March 17th each year, Irish and non-Irish alike commemorate the death of their patron saint with parades, typical Irish food, and tons of green beer.
This year it falls on a Tuesday, and... so what? I’m sure you don't need extra motivation to break with your drab old routine, add a touch of green to your day, and go out for some drinks with friends.
Today we bring you some Android apps that will help you party harder on St Paddy's Day:
Beer is an essential element to Saint Patrick’s Day. As a matter of fact, sometimes they even add a touch of green food coloring to make it all the more official. Mostly likely you’ll be toasting with a frosty mug today, so you better practice raising your glass with iBeer, a simple simulator of a pint of beer.
Tap the red button and raise your mobile as though it were a glass or pint. The beer “flows” towards your mouth as if you were actually drinking. It’s perfect to tip your co-workers or friends off to your intentions tonight.
iBeer comes with different types of beer. And yes, even green beer.
Personalize your smartphone: St. Patrick's Day Live Wallpaper
What makes St Paddy's Day unique: the color green and the lucky Leprechaun get-up. Thanks to St. Patrick’s Day Live Wallpaper, you can capture the magic on your mobile with a collection of animated backgrounds with typical St. Patrick’s Day themes: clovers, gold coins, and green top hats.
Five customizable animated backgrounds in a very easy-to-use app. Nice.
Even on St. Patrick’s Day, we can’t escape those pesky moments of boredom. Holiday-appropriate games are pretty much the best way to pass the time while we wait for the bus. There are thousands of games that can help make time fly, but today we give you one where the protagonist is a Leprechaun (how it be otherwise?).
The goal of St. Patrick’s Day: Drunk Lep is to keep a very inebriated, stumbling fairy upright for as long as possible, tilting your phone to stop him from falling. Challenge your friends to beat your time, especially fun if there's a fair bit of green beer running through your veins.
If you’re going to celebrate St. Paddy's Day, you’re probably going to take some photos. Snaps from such a special day require some tweaking. With DecoBeer: St. Patrick’s Day you can add pints of beer, top hats, pots of gold, and all the green you could wish for to your photos.
DecoBeer has a huge variety of stickers that you can paste on to your photos, adjusting size and position as you go. Once your photos are perfect, you can easily share them with friends through WhatsApp or other social apps.
Getting home with more than enough beer in your system is par for the course on St. Patrick’s Day. So, it’s best that you leave your motorcycle or car at home and opt for a safer option: taxis. Or something other than taxis: Uber (hey, we don’t want to offend the taxi labor unions).
Uber is a private car service functional in most cities worldwide. The Uber app for Android helps you find available drivers close to where you are, know the approximate cost of the route, and pay through your phone. It’s a controversial app but super helpful and totally recommended. Of course, that's if it’s still legal in your country.
