๐ŸŒŸChristmas Apps๐ŸŒŸ

As soon as the end of November approaches, I always without fail start to prepare my phone for December. Whether that’s just by changing the wallpapers, downloading a christmas countdown or even christmas games. So this is my lists of my top Christmas Apps this year for IOS.

  1. Advent 2015 – 25 Days of Christmas by appChocolate: This is just your basic Advent Calendar in App form. Everyday they offer you a new christmas game to download and enjoy.
  2. Christmas Countdown 2015 by UAB Target Works: A simple countdown with the added feature of a daily quote, plus you can also have it as a widget on your down bar so you don’t even have to go into the app to see the countdown.
  3. Christmas Wallpapers by Tick Tock Apps: This has a variety of christmas backgrounds to suit everyone’s needs during the festive season. Simple and brilliant.
  4. Pintrest by Pintrest, Inc: Now I know this isn’t just restricted to Christmas time, but it’s such a brilliant app for this time of year. If your struggling to know what to buy for that distant relative, or even just want to do some Christmas DIY or baking this app has it all. (It can even teach you how to make decorations).
  5. Manage Christmas by Simon North: This is by far my favourite app this year. You can make a list of who you need to buy for, the budget you want to keep, what you’ve bought, what you need. IT’s just brilliant, especially if your on a budget!
  6. Smashy Santa by Clive Smith: This is just a christmas game where you have to safely get santa across the roads, and streams without getting him killed. Fun but also annoying at the same time.
  7. Charades! Free by FatChicken Studios: We all know what charades is, this is just a digital version to play with all the family around christmas. Funny and no tidying away after the game is finished (or after you’ve had a few drinks).
  8. Netflix by Netflix, Inc: We all have a need for christmas films! This is just a great app that holds some of your festive favourites. For example; Home Alone, A Christmas Carol, The Santa Clause, and Jingle All The Way. Enjoy!
  9. Youtube by Google, Inc: This is just the same as pointers but in video form really. There’s DIY, christmas make up tutorials, gift ideas, and of course your favourite Youtuber’s. What more could you want?

There’s only one App missing from my collection and that’s the 12 Days of Christmas/Gifts App. This hasn’t been around for the last two years, but it was a great app with provided you with songs, films and apps to download on 12 days in December. I wish it was brought back. Anyway that’s just a few of my favourite’s, feel free to leave me a comment with your favourite apps for this time of the year :).

IOS9ย 

Ok so like many others, I am indeed an apple user. And seen as I haven’t been living under a rock I knew that there was an update due yesterday, but this wasn’t the exciting part. The exciting part for me was the emojis. I am an over active emoji user๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ฉ… so to learn new emojis were on the way was brilliant! Until of course I did the update…and they were nowhere to be seen. ๐Ÿ˜“

Now I probably missed the memo but I read nowhereย and I repeat nowhereย that the new emojis wouldn’t be included ๐Ÿ˜ not cool Apple! Not cool! ๐Ÿ˜‘ Because of this I went googling to find out why this was.

The answer: these new emojis will actually be included in the next update which is expected in November.

How disappointing! I mean overall I am happy with the layout and changes that come with the update but still…it was a sad day for Apple users everywhere yesterday. ๐Ÿ‘ท๐Ÿฝ
