The Oscars are quickly approaching, and if you haven't gotten a chance to catch a glimpse of all the nominated films, take a look at some of these applications that are meant to guide you through the 85th annual Academy Awards.
The most obvious app to download before you sit down to watch the big event is the official Oscar app that was developed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and ABC Digital.
The Oscars' official app will provide content ranging from red carpet buzz and streaming video to recipe recommendations to serve at your Oscars gathering.
A list of nominees will also be available on the app, as well as photos and videos of the stars backstage and on the red carpet.
The user can even choose which camera they want to view throughout the event or opt to see ABC correspondents provide updates on the Oscars.
The Oscars official app is compatible with iOS, Android and Kindle devices.
And here is a fun app that will challenge your film knowledge.
Guess the Movie, developed by Jinfra, is a game that displays a series of tiles that act as clues to the answer that is a title to a movie.
The user advances within the game as more clues are acquired.
This highly addictive app appears simple, but your movie knowledge will definitely be put to the test.
And if you feel the need to have another screen in addition to the one you use to watch the Academy Awards, try the app Zeebox.
Zeebox allows the user to use the app as a secondary screen while watching the awards ceremony on television and see what other channel's have on their lineups.
And what makes this app really cool is the ability to chat with friends who are also watching the Oscars.
Zeebox can also be used as remote control.
