Throwing a party can be a nerve wracking task, there’s just way too many factors involved. Food? Drinks? Entertainment? Relax, your Android has you covered. Make your device play party planner for an evening.
1. Never forget a thing again
Planning a party can be a hectic affair, especially if you’re doing it yourself. You’ll probably need to run house errands, buy grocery, plan the guest list, and many more things. Chances are high that you may forget something amidst the manic rush.
Not to worry. Remember the milk has you covered.
It’s one of the, if not the best to-do apps available on the market with a simple to use interface and syncing across multiple devices.
2. Grab the cocktail shaker and be the bartender
Now you don’t need a degree in culinary arts to mix up a storm in a goblet. There’s an app for that. The mixology app probably contains much more information than you’ll need, but who’s complaining. Learn how to stock up your bar right, read how is a pilsner glass different from a goblet, browse through an extensive list of spirits and mixers.
In a hurry? Cocktail recipes are neatly organized according to the main spirit in them, containing information about the ingredients, procedure, and type of glass needed. This one is for keeps.
3. Set the music up and forget about it
What’s a party without some pumping music? Hiring a DJ for a small gathering doesn’t always make sense. You may build your own playlist but how boring and predictable is that? Well, with Xiia Live, you can pretty much forget about music now, by that I mean the app will take care of everything, and how!
Just connect it with any mobile or WiFi network, choose from among hundreds of channels from an extensive list of genres… and enjoy high quality, uninterrupted music.
4. Serve a four course meal with sorbet
Planning a menu can be quite an intimidating task, cooking even more so. Whether you’re throwing a cocktail and snacks party or if you wish to really give your guests a culinary treat, you don’t need to look much further than the Dinner Spinner app by All Recipes. Using it is a pleasure. You get three options: Select your dish, pick the ingredients, choose how much time you can devote to the cooking, and click to view the matches that fit your description! You can sort the matches by rating, popularity or other criterion.
That’s it, just follow the directions from there and you’ll be great. I feel obliged to say that the app won’t make up for a gross lack of cooking skills.
5. Put some FX into those photographs
Sure, you have a great camera, but don’t just go ahead and post your party pictures on Facebook. That’s so cliched! Give your photographs some personality. Although Instagram is on its way only now to Android — there’s no reason to keep waiting for it when you have great alternatives like Pixlr-o-matic. The number of effects that you can download and apply are virtually endless.
After you’re done with clicking pictures, use the share function to update Facebook and Twitter so your friends know what you’re up to.
6. Share and network like a pro
Let’s say you meet someone interesting at your party. A potential business partner or maybe someone you’d love to date. What are you going to do? Are you going to ask for their contact number? Then manually punch it in? So lame. Bump is a one of a kind sharing application that allows you to share almost anything. Just bump your smartphone with another and share contacts and photos, but that’s not all you can do — you can also sync two devices and share app recommendations.
What if your new friend doesn’t use Bump? Introduce them to it, they’ll thank you for it later.
7. Escort your friends home (virtually)
Do you feel anxious till the time you’re sure that your friends have reach home safely? Most people do. Currently, most of us ask them to call back or send us a message. There’s a better way of doing this. With Walk Me Home, your close friends can select you to be their guardian angel through the app. You will then be notified of their location via text or maps. They can even raise an alarm in case of an emergency.
Never lose sleep over safety again.
