5 apps for Bonfire Night

Bonfire night is this Saturday, and if you thought it was all sparklers and hot chocolate – think again. We’ve compiled a list of the best apps to download to make this year’s Guy Fawkes a real banger.



Originally designed for capturing photos of lightning, iLightningCam works for taking pictures of fireworks too. The most impressive thing about the app is its ability to take photos automatically. Just point your camera up to the sky, and it will detect the firework straight away and take a picture. And the full resolution feature means you’ll get razor-sharp images.



No one wants to be stuck watching fireworks during a downpour. Use AccuWeather to stay connected to the latest weather conditions. The app even offers a minute-by-minute precipitation forecast, hyper-localised to your exact address. So you can head home early if there are any sudden rainstorms coming.

Firework Camera Pro


Taking a good picture at a firework display can be trickier than you think. So when you’re desperate for a good shot to post on Instagram, Firework Camera Pro is your best bet.

The clever app allows you to take pictures of fireworks anytime, anywhere. All you need is a clear sky, and the app will superimpose a big, bright firework onto it. This means you can spend your night watching the display – without the pressure of having to get that perfect shot.

Hand Heater


This time of year can get quite nippy. Why not warm up freezing hands by turning your smartphone into a heater? That’s right, this app heats up your phone by sapping its CPU, and what’s more, it actually works. A great app if you don’t mind the drain on your battery.

Anonymous Mask


Get in the spirit of Guy Fawkes by superimposing the anonymous mask over a picture of yourself. Just take a selfie, or use a pre-existing photo. Then choose from four masks to cover your face with - ideal for that seasonal profile pic.

Will you be downloading any of these apps in time for November 5th? If so, let us know in the comments below.
