It is almost 2012! Can you believe it? Most people go to parties and eventually end up watching the big ball drop in Times Square on TV. Now a new free app is designed to put you up close with the New Year'??s Eve Ball in Times Square, no matter where you are in the world. The Times Square Ball App is an interactive program, designed for Apple and Android devices, that allows you to watch the live streaming of the Times Square Ball as well as send greetings and photos to friends, family and followers on Facebook, Twitter and via email. As a free app, there is no better way to kick-off 2012!
More fun features:
- Users can submit New Year'??s photos for friends, family and other revelers to vote on via the app, on Facebook and Twitter.
