Football Fun: Must-Have Windows 8 Apps #windowschampions

by Carrie with Children with comments closed

I am a huge NFL football fan and while my team didn’t make it to the big game this year (Go Jaguars!), you can bet I’ll be sitting in front of the television this weekend ready to watch the final game of the year with my PC nearby.

As a member of the Windows Champions blogging team, I’m always on the lookout for fun Windows 8 apps. Check out these ‘must-have’ apps to get you ready for gameday.

Bing Sports Windows 8 app

Game News & Updates

If you’re away from a television and can’t watch the game – find the game on your Windows phone with one of these helpful apps. While your on your phone, grab the Domino’s app and order a pizza too!  The Bing Sports app is my go-to for the latest news and sports updates.  (I use this app constantly – even have it setup to show my favorite teams news!) Bing Sports is available on Windows Phone too.

Cocktail Flow Windows 8 App

Food & Drink Fun

We aren’t having a party this year, but that doesn’t stop us from having tons of great food to eat for the big game.  The Bing Food & Drink has a place to create a shopping list, plan meals and most of all – find fantastic recipes. For those having a party, you’ve gotta get the Party Food app – you’ll know exactly how much food to buy for the hungry fans. My favorite food related Windows app is Cocktail Flow – filled with hundreds of drink recipes. You can select all the ingredients you have and it tells you what cocktails you can make – genius!

NFL Connect Windows 8 App

Entertain and Celebrate

My husband and I love trivia – especially sports trivia. We plan on using the My Trivia Sports app during the day as we make our way to kickoff.  Fingers crossed I can beat him – he’s pretty good with uesless sports facts. NFL Connect is new to us – but I can already tell it’s going to be a big part of our game day celebration. Users can play alongside live games and challenge friends and families to games.

What’s your favorite Windows 8 App?
