Apps for Thanksgiving

When someone mentions Thanksgiving and apps you probably start thinking appetizers, not applications, however there are some great apps that will help make this the best Thanksgiving ever for your family and friends.


1. Epicurious Recipe App: 

Are you looking to add some flair to your traditional Thanksgiving feast? Look no further than the Epicurious Recipe App. This app has over 28,000 delicious, professionally tested and created recipes from renowned magazines such as Gourmet and Sunset, popular cookbooks, top chefs and leading restaurants. You can browse through their Thanksgiving selections or search for recipes by cuisine style or ingredients. You can even save your favorite recipes in a virtual recipe box.


2. Thanksgiving Coloring Book:

This one can be a little silly, but hear us out! While you are slaving away in the kitchen you can keep your little ones entertained for hours (and more importantly, not underfoot!). Your kids will be able to do virtual finger painting that doesn’t leave any mess for you to clean up later. There are over 60 color options to choose from to paint pumpkins, pilgrims, turkeys and much more. You can shake the handset like an Etch-A-Sketch to start over and when your kids are done you have the option of saving the work to a gallery or sharing it via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.


3. Turkey Plucker:

Once the kids are done painting masterpieces you can turn them onto Turkey Plucker where they can flcik feathers off the turkey from your Android device. It is a game of speed and dexterity to see who can flick the fastest! Players can adjust wind speed to allow feathers to flick in opposite directions or just to have fun playing with the effects of gravity. Once your game is over you can post your score on Facebook to show your friends how fast of a plucker you are!


4. Pair It! Expert Wine Pairing:

If you are not a beverage aficionado, the Pair It! app can help find which wine goes best with certain foods. On Thanksgiving, type in “Entreé” and the app will provide wine suggestions that typically accompany eating turkey or whatever your main course may be. With almost 200 types of wine in the app, you don’t need to be a wine expert to find the perfect beverage to go along with your meal, the app does the work for you!


5. T.G.I. Black Friday:

While many may cringe at the thought of shopping at o’dark thirty the day after Thanksgiving, there are plenty of people who love to snag deals at the local mall or department store in preparation for Christmas ahead. This app helps shoppers find more than 10,000 advertised Black Friday deals from major retailers such as Best Buy, Macy’s and KMart, in some cases before the ads appear anywhere else. The app will help you create a personalized shopping list, receive notifications when new deals you may like appear and even share your deals with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and G+. It is also set up to let you find deals online if you aren’t inclined to leave the house.
