Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 opens tonight in movie theaters everywhere.  The latest installment of the Harry Potter movie saga is based on the last “final” Harry Potter book written by JK Rowling.  So while your standing in line with your best Harry Potter garb on and awaiting the midnight screening like a 1980’s school girl waiting to see Van Halen, you may want to make sure these Harry Potter apps are you your phone.

Now you have to be prepared for others who will try and steal your coveted spot in line at your local stadium seating multiplex. If you make it through the line ok you still may have to battle your way to the front of the concession stand or to the butter machine for your popcorn.  You know your safe only if you make it to your seat on time, and then you’ll need to help defend Hogwart’s from Voldemort. That something is the Harry Potter Magic Wand.

The Harry Potter Magic Wand works in a very similar fashion to light saber apps available for Star Wars fans. You can choose from 6 different wands. Choose the want you want from Harry Potter, Hermione, Ron, Dumbledore, Lupin or Voldemort.  The Harry Potter wand app uses the gyroscope and proximity sensor to move the wand along with your hand. The latest version includes sound support as well.  The Harry Potter Wand allows you to duel with friends and has different wand strike sounds

Now for your viewing/using enjoyment we actually tried out three wand apps in the office and this one is by far the best. Some of the other apps simply do a light up magic wand, which is cool but this one allows you to duel and if you’re moving your hands in the correct motions against a buddy of yours than you can have a virtual duel. So make sure no one takes your spot, your popcorn or talks too much during the movie by downloading this free Harry Potter Wand to your phone.  For this app you’re looking for “Harry Potter’s Wand” by Xig Xag Interactive.  To make it real easy just click right here!
