Christmas Apps to Enhance the Holiday Season

Cell phones have become a huge part of daily life, so take advantage of the technology with four must-have Christmas apps this season.

There are so many affordable apps available that can help create a calm Christmas season. These four holiday-themed apps are a must-have to make this winter season that much more fun as well as organized.

“Gift It”

“Gift It” is a free app that can store gift ideas and their prices so users know exactly what they need to get and how much they will spend in the process. It is great for organizing and keeping track of a budget and what people are asking for this Christmas. The app also allows users to make separate lists for birthdays instead of Christmas, and allows users to cross off an item once you have purchased it. This is a useful app for a stressless Christmas.

“Sleeps 2”

“Sleeps 2”  is a simple and cute app that counts down the nights until Christmas. There are many apps such as this, but “Sleeps 2” is free, has different backgrounds to choose from and plays Christmas music when the app opens.

“I have the Christmas countdown app on my phone because Christmas rocks,” junior Savanna Gonzalez said.


“JibJab” is a both a website and an app where users can add a photo of a face and “JibJab” edits the face onto a body in a video. There are a lot of Christmas and holiday related videos from which to choose. The App Store rates “JibJab” four out of five stars based on customer reviews. Most of the long videos require in-app purchases, however there are many short videos users can make for free. Send a “JibJab” video to a friend or family member to get their holiday season started with a laugh.

“Font Candy”

“Font Candy” is an easy-to-use photo editing app. There are step-by-step tutorials available on the website for customers who aren’t tech savvy.  It includes many texts and artwork that are used to enhance a photo. It also provides common picture editing tools such as filters. This is not an app specifically Christmas themed, however there are many artwork pieces that are holiday themed that users can manipulate and apply to enhance a photo and make it Instagram worthy.

Have the best winter season possible with the help of these four apps.
