Enjoy the legendary Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks in NYC either in person along the Hudson River, or virtiaully, via the Macy’s Fireworks FREE smartphone app. Even if you are part of the crowd watching the world’s largest display of 45,000 colorful shells bursting in air, the app offers details of the show and artists performing – including Mariah Carey, Tim McGraw and Usher – plus Wi-Fi spots, real-time transit reports, and public restroom locations along the viewing area. The app also turns your smartphone into a radio, so you can listen to the synchronized music score. Click here for the link to the iPhone, iPad and Android version.
And while the Macy’s app has tourist and dining suggestions, it’s not as complete as the New York City On the Cheap smartphone app, available for Apple and Android devices. Click here for NYCOTC on iTunes, click here for NYCOTC on Google Play.
