Our generation is constantly connected. Even generations before us spend the majority of their time glued to their smart phones. Because of this, I know that most of us will be simultaneously watching the 85th Annual Academy Awards with our iPhones in hand.

Why not upgrade your cyber watching experience by downloading a few apps, instead of just sticking to Twitter or Facebook? There are a few apps that can help you:

First, The Oscar app, created by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. This app brings you streaming video form the red carpet, recipes to cook up for Oscar parties, nominee lists, photos, glimpses of nominees backstage, Oscar cocktails, surveys to help you cast your vote and more.

Zeebox is another app that can help you out. Select your cable provider on the app, and the app will show you what’s hot on TV by displaying what’s playing now and what’s playing next. This app is perfect for year round use, but on the night of the Oscars it can allow you to chat with other Zeebox users about the Oscars, while letting you use your iPhone as a remote control.

If you’re bored waiting for your favorite category to be announced, you can download Guess the Movie. The app, developed by Jinfra, lets you put your movie knowledge to the test by breaking down films into several categories and into different levels.

Finally, for all of you fashion lovers out there, download E! Live From the Red Carpet. News, photos and videos will be streamed onto this app, along with do’s and don’ts, top 10 lists and so on.

John Oliver Perfectly Summarizes Every Fireworks Show From This Fourth Of July

While we recently realized that the Fourth of July might not be as American as most people like to think, that didn’t stop people from going out and celebrating Independence Day like the Founding Fathers intended. Rain put a damper on a lot of people’s original plans, but judging by the multiple explosions outside my […]

18 Times Patrick Star Absolutely Proved He Was The Stoner Of Bikini Bottom

Patrick Star is a supporting character from the children’s television show “Spongebob Squarepants.” There are a number of traits you could use to describe Patrick, but “dumb” is far and away the obvious choice. You could also say he’s “innocent” or “simple-minded,” but regardless of the exact terminology, the sentiment remains the same. The show […]

Surprise, Hipsters! Almond Milk Really Isn’t That Healthy, After All

Hipsters, grandmas and health-obsessed mothers are going to be so disappointed to hear that almond milk, the “delicacy” thought to be just a sweet combination of pure almonds and water — so healthy! — is a farce.
