Apps Make St. Patrick's Day More Fun

Did you know the original color associated with St. Patrick’s Day was blue — not green?

If you knew that, you may stand a better chance of beating your friends at the St. Patrick’s Day Irish Quiz app, one of several mobile apps you can download to celebrate the day and honor Irish culture.

Another way to celebrate is to cook and share a traditional Irish meal with friends and family. The St. Patrick’s Day Irish Recipes app has all the recipes you’ll need, from traditional soda bread to corned beef cabbage.

Want to spread some virtual cheer? Download the Build-a-Card St. Patrick’s Day app and make your own virtual greeting cards. You can create St. Patrick’s Day cards using pictures from your device and share them on Twitter and Facebook.

For mobile gamers looking to get in on the holiday fun, download the St. Patrick’s Day Edition of Bubble Blast, the puzzle game in which players burst shamrocks, pots of gold, Irish hats and balloons by creating chain reactions. With 3,500 levels, you may just need the luck of the Irish to make it to the end.

No matter how you choose to commemorate St. Patrick’s Day, apps on your smartphone or tablet can add to the fun of the festivities.
