New Year's Eve: Apps to Ring in the New Year

People all over the world are putting the final touches on their plans for tomorrow evening, to celebrate the end of the old year and the beginning of the next. Others, of course, are scrambling to get a plan together, and still others don't really give a damn about making plans at all. Whatever your plans might be, we've put together a list of a few apps that can help ring in the New Year:

The Times Square Ball App is the official app for the Times Square New Year's Eve celebrations in New York City. It has a countdown times, a live webcast from Times Square, Twitter integration and various info on the night's festivities.

California has put out a noteworthy app this year called DDVIP (Designated Driver VIP) that provides users with maps and guides to restaurants, bars and other venues that have special deals for all the designated drivers out there. (The designated drinkers already have more than their fair share of apps!)

London's Official City Guide app (on iTunes and Google Play) has tons of info on New Year's Eve celebrations in the city, including the New Year's Eve fireworks display and the New Year's Day parade.

The Sydney New Year's Eve app appears to be growing in popularity, along with the Australian metropolis's massive fireworks display, which is among the first seen around the world every year. The app contains tips and hints for getting the best view of the works, and provides video streams and other content as well.

The Berlin Philharmonic plays a special New Year's Eve concert every year, which they stream live on their website and on their dedicated app.

Finally, also check out aGupieWare's own New Year's Eve Noise Maker app, which is available from the App Store for just $0.99.  The app plays numerous New Year's Eve sounds and songs. Irritate ears with the sound of a horn. Twist brains with the twirler sound. Perform an ensemble of the instruments above, or play the classic New Year's song "Auld Lang Syne." Bring the noise!
