Android, iPhone, iPad and Nokia Royal Wedding app essentials
April 29th 2011 will go down as the historic day that the future King and Queen, Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton officially tied the knot, and we had the day off to celebrate it.
Short of an official invite landing on the doorstep of the T3 offices, we've had to think about alternative ways to follow the action. So, having searched through the smartphone realms, we come up with the apps that should help you feel part of the action.
Whether you are going to be in London getting as near to the action as possible, or planning to enjoy the festivities from further a field, here’s T3's top Royal Wedding app picks.
