20 Dec 5 Christmas Apps We Love This Year
Christmas Countdown 2018 is at the top of our list for Christmas themed apps this year because of its simplicity and uniqueness. The app is perfect for those of us who can’t wait for Christmas and can’t get enough of the spirit of the Holidays. When you first open the app it shows the countdown to Christmas day which is the primary focus of the app (and title). Furthermore, you have the option to adjust the themes and music, but some require a premium purchase. Lastly, you can open a new gift for each day leading up to Christmas. The gifts are fun little notes and songs that you can enjoy as you get closer to the big day.
I think we can all agree, the Holidays can be a bit chaotic when it comes to shopping. The Christmas List is a great app for tracking and organizing your gift purchases this year. Some of the great features are creating gift lists, import recipients from contacts, list sharing, Christmas countdown, store locating, PIN protection, and more. One of my personal favorites is the easy budgeting tool that comes with this app. For each person on your list, you can set a budget and the app keeps track so you don’t have to worry about overspending. This app really is the all-in-one solution for those of us that like to keep track of spending and gift lists around this time of year.
For the youngins is Yasa Pets Christmas app. It’s an adorable and fun dollhouse game that’s filled with Christmas activities. The virtual house includes various rooms to explore and enjoy complete with unique abilities and experiences. The best part is that there are no in-app advertisements and the download is free, so you can have fun without being cluttered with promotions.
The ElfYourself app is another holiday favorite and includes the ability to put your face and friends faces on dancing elves. Using facial recognition and augmented reality technology, you can truly experience your elf side in this fun app. The app will automatically place your face on a dancing elf and the augmented reality part means you can have your elf-self dancing in your very own living room (sorta). What’s more, you can share your customized videos with friends on popular social platforms. It’s quick, easy, and a ton of fun.
Your kids will be motivated to be on the ‘good list’ this year with the Portable North Pole app. It’s a video call from ‘Santa’ complete with personalized messages. For memories sake, the app even records the viewer’s reaction so you can reminisce the emotional experience. Thousands of names are recorded to make the video as personal and impactful as possible. More features include parental controls, kids section with an advent calendar, and filters. Save a trip to the mall and have a chat with Santa in the comfort of your own home!
