St. Patrick’s Day…There’s an app for that

Tomorrow is the day everyone in the world is Irish..just for the day. So I have a few thoughts on how you can enhance your “Irishness”



Lucky Me, St. Patrick's Live Wallpaper

If you have an Android phone, why not dress it up with a live wallpaper..there are dozens at Google Play. I am using Lucky Me, St. Patricks LWP. The free version features Shamrock fluttering down the screen as well as pot of gold particles spraying into the air.  Tap the Screen and the Shamrock will change course. There is a paid version with more features but the free one works just fine for me.



Iris Luck ScannerPimp out your iPhone with an Irish Luck Scanner… It pings like a radar as you scan your friends and you choose when the alarm sounds indicating the presence of Irish Luck. It always gets a laugh. The trick is so simple, but yet very difficult to detect how you make the scanner jump from low to high as you point it from friend to friend. Everybody will want to try it to figure out how it works.




Finally, what would St. Patrick’s Day be without Irish food. My favourite food site Gojee features 31 different Irish recipies..the pictures are so great you will get hungry just looking at them you will want to try all of the 32 recipes. Gojee also has recipes for 11 Irish drinks also with great pictures.
