Celebrate St Patrick's day with your Windows Phone

Published by at

This coming Monday, March 17th, is St Patrick's Day, the official feast day of Ireland's patron saint. Theoretically, the day is all about celebrating the life of St Patrick (AD 385–461) and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, but it's also an excuse to celebrate the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. As you might expect, there are a number of apps in the Windows Phone Store, that can help get you into the spirit of the occasion.

As you down your celebratory pint of Guinness the Sláinte app will help you find an appropriate toast for the occasion, the St Patrick's Day Screenz app will let you customise your phone's lockscreen, and the St Patrick's Day Reciepes app will help you plan your themed culinary creations.
