Wipe off that wing sauce and tap into the game with the 9 best Super Bowl apps

It’s the Super Bowl — and by no means does the ritualistic event need any introduction. Before you begin to stuff yourself with nachos and wings on February 3 and settle in to watch the game (or the ads), check out these apps to amplify your experience for the big day.

Super Bowl LIII Fan Mobile Pass

The Fan Mobile Pass is a companion app that provides Super Bowl fans with maps, schedules, and more for Super Bowl events and the game day in Atlanta. There’s curated content, such as photos and videos, and you can enter giveaways and sweepstakes to win prizes. Register once on your computer or mobile device, and you’ll receive your QR code, enabling you to scan into activities and events. All the up-to-date photos and videos will show up on your personalized landing page, and you’ll be able to share them on social media.

NFL Mobile

Maybe you’re stuck in a cab or at work, late for a Super Bowl party. If you’re a customer of Verizon, Charter, AT&T U-Verse, or another provider with access to the NFL Network, don’t fret, as you can always watch the game live through the NFL Mobile app. If you’re not, the app still lets you watch highlights, read stories, and follow up-to-the-minute scoring. You can also track league and team leader statistics from major categories and browse the NFL Shop store, should you want to pick up some memorabilia.

Ibotta

Ibotta App

When you’re doing your shopping before the Super Bowl, picking all the necessities to entertain fans with a hunger for snacks as strong as their hunger for football, make sure to take this shopping app with you. Not only will you earn rewards and money back when you make your purchases, but you’ll also see some special offers specifically related to the big game.

BigOven

BigOven

Super Bowl Sunday is just as much about the food, and while many will simply prefer to order in, if you’re in the mood to cook then BigOven is the way to go. The app boasts 350,000 recipes and there’s food there for pretty much any occasion — so after the Super Bowl, you may find yourself reaching for the app at other times of the year like Christmas and Thanksgiving, too.

iOS Android

Drizly

Snacks and food are important, but getting enough beer for the gang is vital. Thankfully, you don’t even have to leave your house to do it — Drizly allows you to shop for alcohol straight from your couch. The app’s database includes tons of local liquor stores in over 105 cities in North America, so as long as you’re in a relatively large city, you’re covered for alcohol during the Super Bowl. You can also use the “First5” promo code if you’re a first-time user of the app to get $5 off your first order (Not valid in Connecticut, Missouri, Ohio and Hawaii).

Tunity

tunity

You might be heading to a sports bar or Super Bowl party to watch the big game, but if you’re a big fan you probably want to hear the action, too — and crowded places like a bar aren’t the best for being able to hear properly. That’s where Tunity comes in. The app allows you to scan any TV in the area, after which you’ll be able to hear a live feed of the audio straight through your phone. Side note — the app is great for other situations, too, like the TV at the gym, watching if your roommate is asleep, and so on.

Odds

Odds App

Big game, big bets. There is always money on the line in the Super Bowl, on just about everything from the coin toss to the final score. Even if you don’t have money riding on the game, the insights provided for gamblers can give a unique take. Plus you can see win probabilities, which fans will tell you means nothing — even when it’s at 99 percent with five minutes remaining.

Thuuz

Thuuz App

When there are more than 100 million people watching the same thing at the same time, you can feel like you’re being left out if you aren’t up on what’s happening. Thuuz is your loophole for catching the good moments without watching the whole game. It will alert you to the big plays and you can spend the rest of the game watching the Puppy Bowl.
