If you are lucky enough to own an iPhone or an iPod touch, you will be aware of the thousands of apps you can purchase. With Christmas quickly approaching, seasonal apps are beginning to make an appearance. Some are fun, some helpful and some are downright useless. It can be difficult to find the decent ones from the pointless ones, so check out this guide to the best Christmas iPhone apps!
Best Christmas iPhone Apps
Christmas Shopping List 59p/Better Christmas List £1.19
Both of these Christmas iphone apps are designed for the early Christmas shopper. If you have ever been out shopping and forgotten which presents were meant for which person, you need one of these apps! They allow you to set yourself a budget for Christmas spending, write a list of the people you are shopping for, give you a place to write what your bought for each person and to remind you which presents have been wrapped and posted. They also have password protection on them, just in case nosy relatives pick up your phone to take a peek! It’s a brilliant way to keep a check on how much you have spent and remind you of the things you still need to buy!
Sleeps To Christmas Lite (Free)
If you are excited about the countdown to Christmas, Sleeps To Christmas is a cute app to have on your iPhone. A variety of cute Christmas characters including Santa, a snowman and an elf each hold up a sign which tells you how many “sleeps” until Christmas while playing an instrumental Christmas carol in the background. Some of the carols included are Ding Dong Merrily on High, Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells. This app also tells you how many hours, minutes and seconds there are until Christmas!
Zen of Snow (Free)
In many parts of the world, having a white Christmas is practically guaranteed. But if you don’t have much chance of witnessing a real white Christmas, there are a few Christmas iPhone apps which can help. Zen of Snow is probably the best. It turns your iPhone into a snow globe! A gorgeous scene filled with brightly decorated Christmas trees becomes a winter wonderland, simply by shaking the iPhone. It is absolutely mesmerising to see the flakes falling from the sky while listening to the peaceful music that is playing.
Christmas Tree Decorator 59p
Have you ever dreamed of having the perfect Christmas tree? With Christmas tree Decorator, you can! This iphone app gives you an empty Christmas tree to decorate any way you please. There are baubles, feathers, snowmen, fairy lights and many other items to dress your tree with, and even presents to put underneath! There are also options to make the fairy lights blink, twinkle or stay on plus three different music choices and the option to make snow fall. You can make lots of different trees and save them so you can use them as wallpapers on your phone so you can carry the festive spirit with you at all times.
Christmas Rollercoaster Builder (Free)
If you like your Christmas iPhone apps with a bit of a challenge to them – try Christmas Rollercoaster Builder. The aim is to guide Santa and his reindeer to collect the wrapped gifts without them crashing. To do this, you use your finger to trace a line across the screen to help them on their way. This isn’t as easy as it sounds though. If the route you trace slopes too far down, or too high up, Santa will crash and you have to start over. You are given different tools for different puzzles and you have to decide how best to use them! This one will keep you entertained while you wait for Christmas dinner to be served!
Christmas iPhone apps are mostly just a bit of fun to keep you entertained through the festive season! The good news is, while there are many that need to be paid for, there are also plenty of free ones to get your hands on!
