5 Christmas Apps You NEED To Have A Merry Time!
Tired of using the same ol’, boring apps? Keep up with the hottest new app launches and rediscover old favourites with Appturday! Appturday’s a weekly post from our Social Media Editor where she rants, raves, and shares the apps she’s currently into!
It’s the season to celebrate good times, y’all! And in the spirit of debauchery and fun times to come, I’ve curated a list of apps you need, in order to have yourself a Merry little Christmas!
1. Google Santa Tracker
Yes, I know, this is an app for kids, but who doesn’t turn into one when it comes to Santa? The app helps you countdown to Christmas day, yeay! You also track Santa’s whereabouts using Google Maps, and don’t tell me I didn’t warn you about how addictive their in-app game, Present Bounce, is! As you get closer to Christmas, you unlock fun new games every day, so you’ll seriously be hooked.
2. Yummly Recipes & Recipe Box
Raise your hand if you, too, use the holiday season as an excuse to gorge on your favourite desserts! While you could order in, there is a special joy in creating yummy bakes from scratch and that’s where the Yummly app comes in! With over 1 million recipes to choose from, you’re bound to unleash your inner Nigella — unfortunately, the Brit accent is not included.
3. Sing Along Christmas Carols Free
Can’t remember the lyrics to Deck The Halls? Yeah, me neither. This handy app provides karaoke style lyrics to all your favourite carols, so you’ll be able to sing more than the Fa-la-la-la-la bit.

5. Elf Yourself!
OK, I know this is an old one, but if Christmas is not about turning yourself into an all-singing, all-dancing elf, then I don’t know what is! Psst, you have to check out my favourite dance, Elfspañol.
