The countdown to Christmas has begun!
So, how are you planning to celebrate Christmas this year?
We are sure, decorating a Christmas tree, baking cookies and sending greeting cards to family and friends is on the list of your to-do activities.
You could also use some amazing iOS apps to make this festive season even more special.
Let’s take a look at these apps:
- Christmas Fun Facts
Do you know the most popular Christmas song “Jingle Bells” was actually written for Thanksgiving?
Surprised? Well, this app will make you aware of super quirky Christmas facts that you had no clue about. But that’s not it. You can even share your favorite Christmas facts that you think your friends are unaware of, through Facebook, Twitter and Email.
It’s a free to download app that comes packed with fabulous graphics and offers a fantastic user experience.
- Merry Christmas 14
This excellent app lets you create and send personalized heartwarming eCards to your friends and family from your iPhone. It is incredibly easy to use, free to download and perfect for those who don’t want to receive any ads while creating greeting cards on their mobile devices.
It is a powerful app that offers users a generous selection of templates, beautiful frames, typography and numerous color choices.
What’s more, you can easily share the eCard you’ve so lovingly created with friends and family.
This app not only allows you to send eCards through email and messages, but also lets users share results with their networks on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp. You can even save your card in the photo library of your iPhone.

‘O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging; Not only green when summer’s here’
Do you remember what comes next? No? Perhaps, you need to download the ‘Sing Along Christmas Carols’ – karaoke style app to refresh your memory.
This app is also perfect for families who sing Christmas carols together at Christmas. You can use this app to brush up on your carols or to sing along with family and friends. It offers full carol music with no background singers. The best part about this app is it offers full carols, unlike similar carol apps that offer a part of a carol and then ask you to be a paid member if you want to listen to the full version.
Kids love writing letters to Santa, telling him how good they have been through the year and what they want from him this Xmas. This is the app for today’s digital kids who prefer using smartphones rather than pen and paper to write letters to Santa.
It’s a free, well-crafted kid-friendly app that allows kids to select from different pens and stickers to decorate their letter. Once the letter is crafted, they can even share it with their loved ones.
And the icing on the cake is – you get a reply from Santa in an hour!
