The Best Christmas Apps 2014

If only there was a magical device in your pocket that could take away all the hassle of Christmas – and keep you entertained at the same time…

Sadly, there isn’t an app that will wrap presents or cook a Christmas lunch for you (or not yet, at any rate). As a consolation, the app stores are crammed with handy mobile and tablet apps that promise to help you get organised and get you in the festive spirit. Here are some of the best…

Apps

The Christmas List iOS

Not sure where to start with your Christmas shopping? iPhone and iPad owners should take a look at this app to avoid a last-minute scramble. Create gift lists, organise them into groups and set a budget for each person you’re buying for. You can also track your purchases and keep an eye on which gifts still need to be bought, shipped and wrapped.

For Android, the Christmas Gift List does a similar job. Archive your lists for next year to make sure you don’t buy the same thing for the same person twice.

Gift Finder (iOS)

Sometimes the usual high street fare can leave you a little uninspired. Notonthehighstreet.com is a UK network of thousands of independent creative small businesses and is a useful starting point if you’re looking for something original. The site’s iOS app is handy all year round – allowing you to search according to budget and the interests of the person you’re buying for. You can also add friends, birthdays and other events (e.g. weddings) and import info from Facebook.

RedLaser (iOS) (Android)

So you’ve seen an ideal gift but you want to make sure you get the best price for it. This app could be just what you’re looking for. Scan the barcode of the item you like the look of to compare the best prices both online and offline. You can also read customer reviews and feedback and use the app to purchase with the option of home delivery or pick up from a local store.

Kids

Kids Apps

Letters to Santa Claus (iOS)

Drop a line to Father Christmas telling him how good you’ve been and what’s on your wish list. Best of all, with this app Santa writes back!

Where’s Santa? (iOS)

Track Santa’s progress and see what he’s up to. Solve anagrams and puzzles and learn a little geography along the way. See also Santa Tracker for Android.

CBeebies (iOS) (Android)

With lots of seasonal games, puzzles and stories from the likes of Mike the Knight and Sarah and Duck, the BBC’s app has plenty to keep little ones amused this Christmas.

Novelty and games

Elf yourself App
 

Elf Yourself (iOS) (Android)

Are you concerned that there isn’t enough elf-related content on the internet? Help rectify this by creating a video with you as a dancing elf. Upload up to five photos, choose a dance theme and the app will do the rest. Share your results via Facebook.

Christmas Apps 2014

Christmas HD (Android)

Give your mobile or tablet some seasonal wallpaper. Place your family photos on the mantelpiece, put your names on the stockings and decorate a tree with lights and gifts. You can even leave a snack for Santa!

Angry Birds Seasons (iOS) (Android)

Not had your fill of Angry Birds yet? Here’s 25 slippery new winter levels to keep you amused.

Christmas Songs and Music (Android)

From old-school carols to “Christmas Hip Hop”, just about all the Christmas music you could wish for is here. Download and get to work giving your ringtones and alarm a festive twist.
