Great Apps for Christmas

No matter your age, Christmas brings out the child in all of us. From novelty jumpers to festive food and time spent with family and friends, there’s plenty to get excited about when it comes to this time of year.

Having our smartphones or tablets constantly available in our pockets and bags, apps have become a main feature in our lives. Whether they serve a practical function or are there to provide us with entertainment, apps have helped pass the time on the commute.

And Christmas is no exception. So, slip on your Christmas jumper, put on your Santa hat and download these Christmas apps to complete your experience of the festive season:

Christmas Countdown 2016: Deluxe Edition

Nothing will get you in the Christmas spirit like counting down to the big day, and with this iOS app, you can get into the spirit every time you look at your phone.

As well as counting down to Christmas Day, the app features a Santa tracker, jokes and classic Christmas songs.

Whether you download it for yourself or your children, this app will bring cheer to even the biggest of Scrooges.

Reindeer Cam

Christmas isn’t complete without Father Christmas and his reindeer, but now you don’t have to wait until Christmas Eve to try to catch a glimpse of them.

Reindeer Cam is a free iPhone app that lets you watch live transmissions of Father Christmas popping out to feed his reindeer every day at 4pm, 11am and 2am right up until Christmas Eve.

The app also allows users to send a letter to Father Christmas to get their children added to the ‘Nice List’.

Christmas Gift List

One thing that is sure to dampen your Christmas cheer is the stress of sorting Christmas shopping.

Avoid panicked last-minute shopping by downloading the Christmas Gift List to your Android device. You can log Christmas ideas you have for each person, and track when you’ve bought and wrapped the presents.

As well as letting you set an individual budget for each person, it will provide you with useful stats, such as how much money you’ve spent so far, and keep an eye on your total budget.

My Xmas Tree

Every family has their own traditions when it comes to decorating their Christmas tree, but if you’ve ever wanted to experiment a bit more and haven’t had the chance, or if decorating the tree is your child’s favourite part of Christmas, then head to the Google Play store to download My Xmas Tree.

With numerous trees, backgrounds, lighting and decorations to choose from, you can create the Christmas tree of your dreams. You can then set any of your creations as your wallpaper or live wallpaper.


If the thought of joining the throngs of Christmas shoppers makes you want to run and hide, make sure the Amazon app is downloaded on your smartphone.

Even if you are brave enough to head to the shops, you can use the Amazon app to price-check any gifts you see. After all, every penny counts at this time of year.
