The Best Apps To Download For Oscar Coverage

The Best Apps To Download For Oscar Coverage
Events

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.
