We get that it’s basically a social requirement to attend some type of game-day celebration, so we’ve pulled together a short list of apps that you need -- we repeat -- need to download before Sunday.

Oh, and your sanity will thank us. This post is 100% dedicated to all the ladies and gents out there who know the truth about the Super Bowl: the commercials are the best part.
