Whether the party will succeed and you will all have fun until the morning hours, or will your long desired party end unexpectedly quick. Nowadays world’s perception of fun, especially in clubbing, is the DJ as a driver of your party and the people on a dance floor in front of him.

TheCoolestApps (wk16)

The coolest apps
Each week we will give you our favorite top3 for android/Blackberry/iPhone apps. If you have any recommendations, please let us know.

1. Shazam
We’ve all been there. Rocking out our dance moves on the nightclub’s dance floor, but you have no ideas which song it is they are playing and there is no DJ in the neighborhood. Well, the answer is Shazam! Shazam is an iPhone app that tells you exactly what song is playing from any speakers.

It is the quickest and easiest way to discover more about music. Just  hold your phone up to the song to identify the track, buy it, check out  the videos, get the lyrics, share it with friends – and more!

Start your music journey and enjoy Shazam.
 2. Angry birds
I don’t know what it is about Angry Birds that has got me so addicted, but seriously, but seriously I played that game 1000 of times. 

With this child friendly game you catapulting a furious little birdie towards a light-fingered pig and aiming to kill. The crux of Angry Birds is very simple. A group of thieving pigs has stolen the birds’ eggs, making them, understandably, pretty pissed off. They want them back, but apparently the only way to do this is to use themselves as pilots who smash down the pigs’ defenses and ultimately destroy the pigs.

The birds come in indifferent shapes and sizes and they all have different talents. Some lay explosive eggs, others can boomerang round a target and the little blue ones, weirdly, can split into three separate smaller birds.
If you can’t get enough of the game, Angry birds is having also special editions as RIO and Angry bird Season.

3. Facebook
Facebook for iPhone makes it easy to stay connected and share information with friends. Use your iPhone to start a conversation with Facebook Chat, check your friends' latest photos and status updates, look up a phone number, or upload your own mobile photos to Facebook while on the go.

Red Bull Cliff diving

We all know Red Bull for there extreme sports and......they found something new (started in 2010): Red Bull Cliff diving.

The competition kicked off in March in Rapa Nui (CL) followed by Mexico (Yucatán) in April. The first stop on European soil takes place in Greece (Athens) in May, followed by France (La Rochelle) and Italy (Malcesine) in successive months. After a trip to the United States (Boston) in August, the grand final is hosted in the Ukraine (Yalta) on September 4.

Cliff diving sounds simple -- you'd think that all you need is a swimsuit and a suitable ledge to hurl yourself off into the water. However this thrilling and dangerous sport takes gymnastic flexibility, dedication and an insane dose of guts as the pros dive from a death-defying 26 metres or higher into the sea, the equivalent of an eight-storey building. The purpose is to make as many 'nice' moves during the flight.

Last weekend the second stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series was in Mexico's Cenote Ik Kil.
