There are all kinds of fun apps available this season to help you ring in the New Year, if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch. Whether you need help keeping your New Year's resolution or just want use a digital counter while you watch the ball drop, there's something out there for everyone. And the best part? They're free!
It's not that hard to count backwards, but the 2010 Countdown to the New Year app keeps track of the remaining time for you. Load it up hours ahead of time and you can watch 2009 tick away. It also has a ball-like graphic to get you in the mood for the big moment.
If you find yourself stuck without a party favor tonight, you can score your very own noise maker with the Party Whistle app. Load it up and blow into the mic of your iPhone to set it off. It's just like the real thing, but more eco-friendly because there's nothing to throw away.
Do you have a hard time sticking to your resolutions? The New Year Resolutions Motivation app can help you out. The app features inspirational lines such as "Yes, you can do it!" and "You can be the best you've ever been!" It's sort of like a pocket cheer squad that you can break out when you need it.
Each one of these apps is available for free on iTunes now. They're just for fun, but hopefully they'll add to your happy New Year!
