Need Some Fireworks on Your iPhone?

For those of us in the US, this is a big holiday weekend, and tomorrow of course is Independence Day.  And that means family, friends, BBQs and fireworks.

So I thought maybe some of you might want to extend the fireworks experience to your iPhones, and thought I ‘d mention a couple ways to do that.

There are lots of good fireworks-focused wallpapers for the iPhone, already sized up to the right 320X480 size.  A Google search will get you lots of sources for these, but one nice one I ‘d recommend is the iPhone wallpapers pool on Flickr.  Many of the photos there are available for non-commercial use and just entering ‘fireworks ‘ as a search term will get you lots of good choices “ that page is HERE.

The one I ‘ve used above is from SWP Moblog’s photostream.

There are also a handful of fireworks-related apps in the App Store.  I didn ‘t check them all out, but did find one that my daughter and I find quite fun.  It ‘s called simply Fireworks and is by Pixio.  The app lets you choose from among 15 famous locations round the world to serve as the backdrop for your fireworks show, toggle sound effects on and off, set the size of the fireworks, and control whether the show is run manually (via tapping the screen) or automatically. 

The screencap at the top of this post is from this app, as is this one using the Sydney Opera House as the background:

You can find the Fireworks app in the App Store for $0.99.
