As a Verizon Wireless Ambassador, I have been testing the new HTC Windows 8X phone for the past several weeks. With my hometown of New Orleans bracing for the craziness that is the Super Bowl, I thought I would share some of my favorite apps to help you navigate the event.
1. WWLTV App: This popular New Orleans based news station has an app that not only includes the most popular headlines of the day, but also an entire tab devoted to Super Bowl XLVII. And while you’re browsing the app, check out the NOLA weather to plan your day at the festivities.
2. NFL Mobile: Keep up to date with the latest videos, scores, team information and sports breaking news. Here in New Orleans, today was “media day” and this app already has many great clips of the event.
3. GMaps: Lucky enough to have a Super Bowl ticket? Make sure you know your way around the streets of New Orleans with Google Maps! Get directions, view maps and even find a nearby restaurant to experience our Cajun cuisine.
4. Super Bowl Clock: Can’t wait till the big game? This app will count down the days, hours, minutes and seconds till kickoff.
5. Epicurious: If you will be watching the game from the comfort of your own sofa, you can get some great Super Bowl Snack ideas and recipes from Epicurious!
While I am most disappointed that my New Orleans Saints won’t be marching in to the Superdome for the big game, the excitement surrounding the Super Bowl is infesting the City! Cameras, celebrities, media events and of course, Mardi Gras all make it worth your while to consider coming down for a visit. So grab your HTC Windows 8X phone, download a few apps and let the good times roll, y’all!
