The newly updated Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade app for Android and iPhone is packed with everything you need to know about this Thanksgiving Day tradition and more! The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade tradition started on Thanksgiving Day in 1924 by the Macy’s Department Store. Over the years this festive Thanksgiving Day parade has become iconic with the holiday itself featuring giant cartoon character balloons, floats, marching bands, clowns and much more. And whether you are actually attending the parade or not, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade app is packed with fun and useful information on parade news/updates, parade route, the 2013 Macy’s Day Parade lineup, not to mention a fun photo activity.
This free Entertainment app has very simple navigation, but may appear confusing at first. Once opened on my Galaxy S4, I discovered the portrait “cover flow” navigation for Macy’s Parade videos, the 2013 parade lineup, information on the Tom Turkey balloon as well as others, and the Macy’s Twitter feed. Just swipe the screen up or down to access these categories. Or for those confused by the cover flow navigation, you can tap on the red star at the bottom and all navigation is accessible this way as well.
This Thanksgiving app is a lot of fun, especially if you are into watching the Macy’s Day Parade with your kids, family, friends or by yourself. You can find out everything about the parade with this app. Check out the 2013 parade lineup and you will discover there are 31 different clown groups, each with a brief description. You can also search for all floats, giant balloons, marching bands, balloonicles, novelty balloons, performance groups, and parade officials within the app.
The videos are fun, featuring cartoon parade characters that are great for the young and old. And as an extra, there is an Elfomatic photo feature within this app. To access, tap on the red star on the bottom of the screen, look for menu, and tap “Create Your Own Balloon.” There are a variety of cartoon balloons with face cutouts to download to your Android. Then all you have to do is take a photo, resize to your balloon’s face, and when you are ready place your balloon (complete with volunteer line holders) into a parade like setting for an awesome Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade photo.
Whether you are going to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or just watching from home, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade app has all the info you need, as well as a fun photo activity, to enjoy this holiday parade tradition!
