Royal Wedding Apps Are the New Tacky Souvenirs

Royal Wedding Apps Are the New Tacky Souvenirs

Forget those china plates, iPad and iPhone apps are the new must-haves for people who want to follow the fairy tale wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William.

To makes sure there is as much interest as possible on April 29, broadcasters and publishers are crowding the iTunes store with dozens of apps, many of them free, aimed at filling the teacups of royal watchers the world over to brimming.

Among them are the Royal Wedding Insider from BBC America (with an unfortunate ad for The Tudors miniseries in it), The Royal Wedding from Hello! Magazine as well as offerings from NBC , one from People that allows you to print your own commemorative stamp and a virtual tea towel app.

Though they’ll probably never surpass the interest in the Kate Middleton doll with its big head or the fun factor in commemorative condoms, unlike ceramics (which more or less live forever) you can dump these apps guilt-free as your interest wanes post-nuptials.

    Who could forget #3 app (rated by Telegraph Top Ten Royal Wedding Apps) – “Dress the Royals – Wedding Edition” http://ow.ly/4wsM6 – a totally just for entertainment, fun app that allows you to dress the entire Royal family as you wish….put one of Kate’s 4 wedding dresses on Will and distribute the remaining 3 among the other men in the family….or give Kate a mustache…with over 40 outfits and a variety of accessories (including animal heads), this is a good natured poke at the Royals for less than a dollar…..
