EarthCam, who brought iOS users the popular New Year’s Live app, is gearing up for the next celebration. Mardi Gras Live is available for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. Available for $2.99, the app features exclusive webcams from three locations in New Orleans.
The first camera is setup at the famous Cat’s Meow club where you’re able to enjoy karaoke, Mardi Gras style. The second camera takes you to Bourbon Street. Here you will witness the crowd as “the royalty” showers them with beads and trinkets. Finally, the third camera gives you a bird’s-eye view of things.
Mardi Gras Live also features music, time and weather information for New Orleans, and a Party Button that activates a virtual photo booth. With this, users are able to snap a picture of themselves wearing a classic Mardi Gras mask.
New Orleans Mardi Gras is part of an annual Carnival celebration held until the day before Ash Wednesday. That day, known as “Fat Tuesday,” is on Feb. 12 this year.
The universal Mardi Gras Live app is available for download in the App Store.
