IrishAppWe loved the live Irish folk music of the Stout Pounders at the Mischief Distillery Storm Tossed Rye whiskey bottling party last month, and were further delighted to hear that the band developed their own app of Irish Toasts.

That’s right, there is officially an app for everything. Examples of famous Irish toasts include gems like:

Ample food and sturdy drink,
A clean pillow for your head,
And may you be forty years in heaven,
Before the devil knows you’re dead!

The free app for iOS is sure to come in handy for the socialites among us who want to set off the evening with true Irish flair. Learn more about the Stout Pounders at stoutpounders.com.

Playing it Safe // $1.99, iOS

Float Plan AppGiving a float plan to a trusted friend or loved one is a smart safety measure, but why deal with paper? The Float Plan App brings a simple concept to your smartphone. Simply input your information and share it with your emergency contacts to keep the right people in the know for your safety. This app could just save your life. Many rescue missions begin when a boater is overdue according to his or her float plan. Without the plan, there would be no rescue launched and no life saved.

It’s $1.99 for the iOS, an Android release is in the works.
