Throw the Ultimate Fourth of July Bash

Apps and accessories to light up your holiday.

By on July 2, 2013

With the Fourth of July upon us, it’s time to fire up the BBQ, turn on the tunes, and join family and friends to celebrate the good ol’ USA.

Grilling is a key part of any Independence Day party. In fact, last Independence Day 150 million hot dogs were consumed. Get the best recipes for your feast with Weber’s On the Grill, which has more than 300 recipes as well as shopping lists and techniques from the masters of grilling.

Why stand around the hot grill when you could throw a football around or sit back and enjoy a frosty beverage as your meat cooks to perfection? The iGrill allows you to monitor your BBQ by placing the thermometer in the meat and syncing it to your mobile device. The app will send an alert when your food is ready.

You can’t have a party without music. Crank up the patriotic tunes with JBL Micro Wireless speakers, which can connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth so you can control the music from wherever you are.

When night falls on July Fourth, it’s time for the greatest tradition of them all – fireworks. If you can’t get to a fireworks show this year, check out Fireworks by miSoft, which lets you select music to go along with a stellar virtual display of color and sparkle from your mobile device.

No matter your choice of activities for this Fourth of July, enjoy them responsibly and with good company.
