If there’s one thing that puts a dampener on a party – quite literally – it’s your guests getting soaked by that most unwelcome of guests; the Irish rain. And while there are loads of apps that can feed you the forecast, there’s none that do it quite so entertainingly as this one!

One look at these lads should tell you plenty; if there’s something about grilling they don’t know, then there’s a good chance nobody does! Hilariously describing the app as a never-ending cookbook – “it’s like a cook book that gets new pages every week” – it’s stuffed with more than 800 recipes, with video tutorials to guide you on your way to becoming the undisputed king of the grill…
OK, so we’re guessing you’ve already got a favourite music streaming app – but it’s the quality of Spotify’s curated playlists that gets it a spot on this list. Hours of summer classics, upbeat dance tunes, or easy-listening R&B are all perfect for a seasonal soiree, and you’ll find the lot close at hand here. Just remember to think of your neighbours, in case your tremendous tunes keep them up half the night!
If you fancy mixing up something more exciting than a few beers, this is the app you need; 80 free recipes are included as standard, while a subscription unlocks a ridiculously huge recipe database. Handily, you can search by the ingredients you have handy, and it will filter options down to the drinks you can make. Whether shaken or stirred, you’ll be serving up treats that will be the toast of the party!
Ellen DeGeneres was already responsible for bringing party games into the 21st century with Heads Up – and there’s more where that came from! This hilarious game is a little like Balderdash; players submit zany answers to trivia questions in an effort to fool their friends. It sounds simple – and it is indeed easy for anyone to get involved – but the craic it creates will have you roaring with laughter until it’s time to call it a night!
