‘Tis the season!

It’s hard for us to believe, but we’re just days away from Christmas, and after that, it’s full speed ahead to 2020.

If you’re anything like us here at App47, you’re probably thinking that it seems like you barely blinked and the holidays are already upon you. We’re always looking for ways to make life easier around Christmastime. Given that we work so frequently with mobile apps to help make life easier in the workplace, we often take the same approach when it comes to our personal lives.

With all of that said, check out the list below for a few of our favorite Christmas apps that will help keep you entertained through the rest of December:

    1. AmazonOK: at this point, it’s dangerously close to being too late to order last-minute gifts online and get them in time for Christmas (if it isn’t already). But for the gift procrastinators among us, the Amazon app can still help. Our tip is to use the Amazon app when shopping for gifts in-person to scan barcodes and instantly check prices online. If Amazon has it cheaper, many stores will price match, and you get to take your purchase home right then and there. Who doesn’t like to save money?
    2. ElfYourselfA Christmas classic, the charm of ElfYourself still hasn’t worn off here in our office. Snap a picture of your face along with whomever you’d like to include in your video, and this app will create a funny video of everyone dancing as elves. Share a video with your friends and family to garner some Christmas cheer!
    3. A Charlie Brown Christmas. While it would’ve been hard for those of us who grew up with the original Charlie Brown Christmas to imagine back then, this Christmas holiday staple is now available in app form. Browse a storybook, listen to songs, and thumb through educational features to experience Charlie Brown in a whole new way this Christmas season.
    4. NORAD Santa TrackerAt this point, it’s basically a given that any list of Christmas apps that we publish will include a mention of NORAD’s Santa tracker. What started with a misplaced phone call to a radar facility way back when has turned into a Christmas tradition in many households around the country and world. NORAD’s website and app are a fun way to track Santa as he goes around the globe delivering presents and spreading the joy of Christmas.
    5. Dr. Seuss CameraLast but not least, the Dr. Seuss Camera app puts your face on “Grinchmas Cards.” It’s fun, it’s simple, and hey–who doesn’t love the Grinch?

Have a recommendation for us to add to the list? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
