Top 5 iPhone Apps for Groundhog Day

Best ways to celebrate the annual festival on iPhone

Celebrated on February 2nd each and every year, Groundhog Day is the holiday in which folk all over North America ignore the wisdom of professional meteorologists and turn to the humble groundhog for the weather forecast.

And it's the holiday that folk outside of North America would be totally unaware of were it not for the charming rom-com of the same name starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.

Fans of slightly bizarre rituals and Bill Murray obsessives alike: we present to you the best iPhone apps with which to celebrate Groundhog Day.

Whether you're trapped in a time vortex that has you endlessly repeating the same day until you successfully seduce a co-worker, or just want to know how much longer winter's likely to last, we’ve got something here for you.

Jetpack Joyride is living (sort of) proof that repetition isn't necessarily a bad thing. In fact, by grafting an addictive mission structure onto a rather repetitive central gameplay mechanic, Halfbrick created one of the most critically acclaimed endless-running games of last year. "Let me try that just one more time" is an 8-word phrase you'd better get used to muttering.

When Phil Connors found himself having to relive the same day over and over again in Groundhog Day, he became so depressed by his time loop situation that he repeatedly committed suicide. Pretty dark, I think you'd agree. Should you find yourself caught in a similar temporal vortex, Peggle would cheer you right up. It is simply pure joy. An Ode to Joy, actually.

Okay, so it turns out that groundhogs aren't very good at predicting the weather. Statistical analysis shows that the furry rodents' prognostications are only actually accurate about 39 percent of the time. This means that if you want to know whether we're in for an early spring this year, you'd be better off guessing than trusting Punxsutawney Phil. Or you could just put your faith in Weather+, which uses science rather than folklore to make meteorological predictions. Crazy, I know.

A full-featured alarm clock that includes support for multiple alarms and a built-in stopwatch, SpoonJuice's handy application also allows you to choose an alarm tone from your music library. That's right - you, too, can wake up to Sonny and Cher's 'I Got You Babe' every... single... day. If you want.

Should you find yourself in southeastern Pennsylvania at this time of year, you'll discover early-morning festivals taking place to celebrate the Groundhog Day holiday. During the celebrations, food is served, speeches are delivered, and plays are performed. You'll also discover that everyone is speaking German, and that those who speak English have to pay a small cash penalty. This app will quickly pay for itself, then.
