Heading to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? There’s An App For That [Daily Freebie]

For those of you heading over to gawk at Sonic and the other floats at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC tomorrow, there’s a new tool this year that’ll help you make the most of the day — that’s right, the parade has its own free iPhone app.

It’s App Store description makes it sound indispensable. Seems like every conceivable scrap of information about the event has been siphoned into the app: parade route, participants and history are all included, along with other local info that developer travel-app developer MyCityWay specializes in, like nearby coffee, wifi spots, subway map and transportation guides, including updated transportation info for Thanksgiving Day.

There’s even a feature that’ll live-track certain participants, like Santa’s float and cheerleading troupes.
