The Christmas spirit is often one that takes a little while to get into, however iOS devices and the Apple store has your back with a range of amazing Christmas apps that will put you in the mood for the holidays and put the happiness back in your heart.
Fortunately, Christmas usually coincides with the arrival of a new phone, meaning many of us will have the new iPhone 5 for Christmas apps. So, what are the best fun iPhone apps available for Christmas?
Blabber Box – Christmas Edition
There’s nothing like a bit of a laugh to lighten up proceedings and the good people at blabber box have provided a giggle or two with the Blabber Box Christmas Edition. Choose from one of four characters and then record and animate your vocals over some half a minute cartoons of Santa, a nut cracker, Rudolf and of course and elf. It’s silly fun, but a great way to lift those Christmas blues.
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire – it sounds idyllic, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, many of us don’t have the liberty of an open fire at Christmas. However, for those who fall into the aforementioned category, there is an answer – Christmas Fire from the App Store. The app creates the crackle of a fire and even has a number of Christmas tracks included. The perfect alternative to the Christmas fire – well, maybe not, but cool nonetheless.
We all dream of a white Christmas and with this app you can have it. The live photo taking app will create the effect of snowfall on your iPhone, allowing you to create a snowy Facebook profile photo. There’s also the option add Santa and a number of other festive templates to the image. It also uploads directly to social media.
If you have little ones then you will certainly have to await the excitement of Christmas with eagerness. Of course, it can be hard to know how Santa is doing and where he is. Fortunately, there is an answer with the Santa GPS. This app shows you where the man himself is on the night in question. The app even has a Good and Naughty list that allows you to check your position.
This app really encapsulates the feeling of Christmas. From the crackling fire to the snow falling outside, this app has it all and even allows you to choose from up to 63 ornaments for your tree. These also include a range of animations and sound effects with ornaments and you can then send your tree with festive lighting and all to friends and family.
Festive Holiday Baking
Christmas is about food and this festive app has a wide range of great baking recipes that are made with less than 8 ingredients – most of which you will have. It’s a nicely laid out app that will provide the festive feel for your stomach.
This app has over 10,000 free songs for you to play throughout Christmas and with this sheer number we would say you can play without repeat from November to January.
Christmas apps are a great way to get into the spirit of things, so why not download a few and have some fun?
