Celebrate St. Patrick's Day Digitally

By Edward Cardenas

SOUTHFIELD (CBS Detroit) - Those looking to avoid the bar scene to celebrate St. Patrick's Day can find a number of activities to enjoy the day on their smart phones.

For the nearly 10 percent of the U.S. population with roots that stretch back to Ireland, and for the 90 percent who are Irish for a day, AT&T has found free St. Patrick's Day apps for the whole family.

These apps include:

  • St. Patrick's Day Photo Free allows iOS uses to add a variety of Irish-themed stickers to their photos and share them with friends,
  • A St. Patrick's Day Quizzle tests the trivia knowledge of users of all things Irish in this iOS app.
  • For those looking to make homemade Irish dishes there is an iOS and Android St. Patrick's Recipes app with recipes for a variety of items including creamed cabbage, shortbread cookies and soda bread.
  • Little ones can virtually color and paint a variety of St. Parick's Day pages in the the Coloring St. Patrick's Day app for iOS and Android devices. In addition to coloring pictures, children scramble the image for a puzzle game, customize their drawing and save their works in a photo library.
