Best New Year Countdown Apps For Android – Happy 2015!
The biggest holiday of the year is almost here and we are all getting pretty excited. You may be planning to spend the last evening of 2014 cozily wrapped up in a blanket next to a fireplace, going out for a party of a lifetime, having a quiet family dinner or eating a coconut under a palm tree on a faraway tropical island. You may not even be into celebrating New Year and consider it a day just like any other… But let’s be honest: there is something magical and inspirational about witnessing the last seconds of the year disappear into the air to the soundtrack of opening champagne bottles and fireworks.
But if you did not make it to the Big Apple or Big Ben this year – don’t fret. You can still experience an exciting countdown right on the screen of your phone.
Here they are – New Year Countdown Apps for 2015!
New Year’s Countdown to 2015
With this app – it’s all in the name. Countdown to 2015 with festive backgrounds and a selection of fun sounds. The app will not let you lose track and at ten seconds to midnight – you’ll hear the cheerful voices of happy holidaymakers. All the additional noises are enabled with a simple tap or shake – which would be super fun for kids. And speaking about kids, if you think they may be too tired after unwrapping all the gifts and hunting down all the chocolate at the dinner table – you can manually set the clock to go off a few hours earlier. This way your children get to be part of the celebration and still be in bed on time. The feature is also great if some of your friends and family live in different time zones – you can set the clock to go off at different times and have yourself several New Year celebrations!
New Year’s Countdown Widget
The widget will let you countdown till new year any way you like: in days, hours, minutes, seconds and even heartbeats (!)
New Year Countdown Widget comes with great customization options – and, in addition to a nice selection of existing images and backgrounds, you will be able to include your own pictures in the mix. It’s a really great idea, since you’ll be able to pick the key moments of the passing year and reminisce about each one of them as you count down till 2015! One more cool feature is that you can choose and play any music as you count down – great way to set that holiday mood!
New Year Fireworks
We may never know why New Years and fireworks go so well together, just like chocolate and peanut better, – but they do. All the major cities on the map hold yearly competitions as to the brightest, biggest and most impressive fire shows that light up the night sky to the happy cheer of its residents. But if you did not make it to Hong Kong this year (my personal preference for “best city fireworks” award) – there is still a way – and a safer one, for that matter. With New Year Fireworks you can enjoy a personal light show right on the screen of your phone as live wallpapers. You can set the sound, colours and length – then sit back and enjoy. You can even get more firework modes from the in-app store for more customization. A tailored fireworks show – that’s the way to celebrate!
Let these three holiday apps make a happy and useful addition to your celebrations. As for us, we hope that wherever you are when the clock strikes twelve, you will be in good company, great mood, a hefty supply of champagne and all the right gadgets!
Happy New Year!
