Fun St. Patrick’s Day Android apps for all ages

by Kate Currin

I love this time of year filled with green beer, pretty shamrocks, boisterous tunes, quirky limericks and pot of gold-chasing leprechauns. What's not to like about St. Patrick’s Day? It's a simple celebration of Irish heritage and marks the death of Ireland’s patron saint. Wait, it’s a death party? Well maybe the whole story isn’t quite that festive, but here are some Irish-themed apps to ensure St. Patrick’s Day fans of all ages enjoy this green-filled celebration.

Memory St. Patricks Day (Free)

The free Memory St. Patricks Day app is fun for Irish fans of all ages. I like opening the app just to listen to the spirited Irish music that plays in the background. Whether you are looking for a quick brain puzzle during your lunch break, or a way to pass the time at the pub while enjoying Irish ale, check out this free puzzle app for at least five minutes of guaranteed Irish-themed fun on St. Patrick’s Day.

Irish Slang (Free)

Amuse your coworkers or your buddies at the bar with the free Irish Slang app for Android. This app is perfect for those who don’t want to walk around on St. Patrick’s Day just saying “Top o' the morning to ya,” to all you meet. Study up before hand with this app and use some authentic Irish slang at your St. Patrick’s Day gatherings. Because the boozer is sure to be black with the bolloxed and that is blarney!

Wee Irish Drinking Buddy (Free)

Turn your night at the pub into a drinking game with the free Wee Irish Drinking Buddy app, which encourages drinking responsibly at the same time as saying “Let’s get drunk!” Simply tap a bubbling mug of fresh draft brew to earn points and hoist your phone in the air and sing along to the Irish tunes. This app is sure to be fun for the whole pub. Once you are ready to go, tap the “Where am I?” button so the app can help navigate you home safe and sound after your St. Patrick’s Day bender.

Reel Deal Slots Club (Free)

First, download the free Reel Deal Slots Club app and then you can see if you have the luck of the Irish by playing with the Leprecoin Slot Machine app ($1.99). It’s an extremely realistic virtual slot machine with an Irish theme. I plan on relaxing on my couch with a pint of Irish ale and pretending I’m in Las Vegas on St. Patrick’s Day with this app. I might get a little tipsy, but at least I won’t lose any real gold coins.

Angry Birds Seasons (Free)

And last but not least, this St. Patrick’s Day Android app roundup would not be complete without the most recent update to Angry Birds Seasons. That’s right Irish lovers: your favorite Angry Birds are decked out in top hats and ready to take out some squealing pigs in a sea of kitschy green Irish-themed fun. I double dog dare you not to get addicted to Angry Birds Seasons.
