Countdown Entertainment and the Times Square Alliance, the co-organizers of the Times Square New Year’s Eve Celebration in New York City, have announced the newest version of the official Times Square Ball app, which has been updated with new content for the end of 2014. The app is available on iOS and Android devices, and allows users to count down to the new year, as well as follow along with the official Times Square Ball Twitter account.
The Times Square Ball app allows users to customize a countdown timer for their timezone, which counts down to the new year in real time. The app’s home page shows a live feed of the Time Square Ball Twitter account, and offers easy access to the (eventual) live stream video webcast of the New Year’s Eve event on December 31. As of this writing, a placeholder video allows users to watch highlights from last year’s celebration.
The app can also be used to quickly access websites containing more information about the Times Square celebration and the Times Square Alliance.
