Viva la smartphone! And viva mas smartphones during NFL season! It’s the time of the year when you the sports fan/tech nerd/social media enthusiast can combine all your passions into one. Today, cell phones are doing a lot more than Alexander Graham Bell could have ever imagined. And with the right app your phone can become a transcendent device.

We’re close to midway through the NFL regular season, perfect time to look at which apps you have and which apps you don’t have but need to download between now and the Super Bowl.

I enlisted the help of Appitalism.com,  the mobile app superstore.

Party & Drinking Games (Free for Android)

The Party & Drinking Games application contains over hundreds of classic drinking/party games.Lots of games in a list; Description of each game. Perfect for your tailgate; which seems to start earlier and earlier in the day, and run longer and longer into the night.

Seamless Food Delivery (Free on All Platforms)

Seamless food delivery right from your phone! Place orders for delivery or takeout from over 6,000 restaurants.  Don’t get off your couch; no need! And recycle all those annoying menus that are incessantly slid under your door every week!

So here’s your chance to show off all your useless knowledge; or acquire some useless knowledge. History majors will love this.

 

Football Discussion Free (Free for Android)

A mobile discussion forum for all things related to Football (or “American Football” as they call it outside our borders)! Discuss professional, college, fantasy, or anything else football related. Love Tim Tebow? Hate Tim Tebow? Think that Tim Tebow is literally the Son of Man? (Michael Irvin made such a claim Sunday night on the air) Here’s your chance to converse with your fellow Tebow lovers/haters/acolytes about the most polarizing NFL player in history. And every other player.

Party Whistle (Free for iPhone & Android)

“Party whistle’s in the house tonight. Everybody just have a good time…” Take a deep breath and blow party whistle on your phone. You only need blow on the microphone. So the next time there’s a party foul, you can let ‘em have it. “Shake that!”
