So Christmas is nearing closer, and hopefully things are starting to feel extra festive around the house. If you want to up your Christmas spirits, or find some suitably themed apps for your iOS device, check out my top 5 favourite apps for the iPhone.
Super Dance Elf
Ever wondered how you’d look if you were an elf? Hopefully Super Dance Elf should give you a little idea. With Super Dance Elf you can take photos of your friends and family and attach them to an elf’s body and watch them dance. I don’t think there’s anything quite as amusing as watching those close to you pull off ridiculous dance moves on your iPhone, and if you want to embarrass your friends and family even more, you can send an email with the dancing elf clip to everyone you know.
Good Food Festive Recipes
A great part about Christmas is the wonderful food that you wouldn’t expect from any other time of the year, and with Good Food Festive Recipes, you can find your favourite Christmas recipes to make yourself.
There are plenty of recipes to be used throughout December, and because Christmas is so close, hopefully you won’t need to feel guilty about indulging on Christmas deserts. The Good Food Festive Recipes app offers tips and detailed instructions to help improve your cooking, as well as other helpful features to make sure you make the most out of the Christmas season.
Better Christmas List
Better Christmas list allows you to quickly record and store information on the presents you are buying for friends and family. You can set your budget and categorize off each person into different areas to make it easier to navigate through. When you’ve chosen the presents you want to buy, all you have to do is tick it off on the list and your budget will adjust accordingly.
A Charlie Brown Christmas
A Charlie Brown Christmas was first aired back in 1965, and has been aired in the Christmas season every year since. The story has given quite a name for itself, and with this app you can bring back childhood memories and perhaps share with your kids the true spirit of Christmas.
The app for A Charlie Brown Christmas takes the original story and makes it interactive and easy to comprehend for the little ones. Although this app is aimed at a younger audience, if you remember Charlie Brown, then there’s no shame in having a little play through the app itself in the name of nostalgia.
This app is a little on the expensive side, but right now you can get it for 40% off.
Sometimes we don’t get to see as many friends and relatives as we’d like to at Christmas, but part of the tradition of the festive season is to send your thoughts and feelings to those you can’t reach in a card. Cards by Apple Inc. allows you to design your own cards and add your own greetings message, as well as add pictures and other resources to make a card personal to the person you’re sending it to.
Once you’ve made a card, Apple will get it made up and send it to the specified address. Delivery costs $4.99 (around £3) but the app itself is free, and considering Apple covers delivery and production costs, it’s far from expensive.
