Ring in the New Year with the Times Square Ball App

There’s nothing like celebrating the New Year with a fancy new App! No matter your location, you can be a part of the New York City action on New Year’s Eve with the Times Square Ball App. (Android and iPhone users of course).

We just downloaded the App to take a look. It’s kind of cumbersome and co-branding runs rampant, but it is filled with a lot of features. From a streaming Show feed to a live NYE countdown, with all kinds of social media add-ons (think eCards, Foursquare check-in, and Facebook photo integration) the Times Square Ball App packs in a ton of goodies.

Our favorite? The Toshiba-sponsored photo contest. Take a photo, share it through the App, and earn credits to vote on your favorite photos of submissions uploaded from all over the world. Top photos will be displayed LIVE on the big Toshiba screen beneath the Times Square Ball!

We’ll definitely be trying to get our photo on the Toshiba sign, will you?
