These first apps, highlighted by All Things D, are novelty and game apps that willl help you get into the spirit.
Jaws Revenge (iOS)
In this addictive linear game, you’re the shark, and you’re out to kill — fish, people, buoys, boats — to keep your energy up, earn coins, and progress to the next level. A “frenzy” puts your shark on steroids for a fast-paced feeding session. The shark jumps high enough to catch birds flying overhead, and emits angry noises that make it sound more like a rabid dog than a giant fish, which is pretty much what you’d expect from a gamified version of a Hollywood-made shark.
Shark Bite Me (iOS)
This app applies gruesome shark-bite effects to any photo, with a variety of different bites available, like Tasty Tear, Chunky Chomp and Nasty Nibble.
The app, which is made by U.K.-based digital media company Moshen, also offers shark myths and facts (did you know that there are approximately 400 species of sharks?).
Shark Week Bingo
This free Web app from Discovery prompts you to log in through Facebook, indicate which Shark Week program you’re watching, and from there, play a fun, competitive game of Bingo with other viewers. …
As items appear on the screen during the program, you select a box with that item — a shark fin, or a life jacket, or a seal, for example — the goal is to get five boxes in a row checked off.
