New York City is the place to be on Dec. 31, but people everywhere can be a part of the party with the Times Square Official New Year’s Eve Ball App.

Available for both iPhone and Android, the app has livestream capabilities to take you to the heart of the fun.

For those who like to share, you can submit your own photos for a chance to be featured on the Toshiba Vision sign in Times Square and on the official New Year’s Eve webcast.

The app is also useful for those planning to celebrate in New York City, as it provides maps and weather updates.

You don’t have to wait until New Year’s Eve to try out the app.

It allows you to read up on ball history and browse through pictures and also offers a running countdown to midnight.

Per reviews submitted, users enjoyed many of the features but complained of a delay in the livestream.

The app is free.
