The holiday season rolls around and all of a sudden, you find yourself with tons of things to do. Forget pen and paper lists -- now you can take a lot of stress out of the holidays with a few smartphone apps. If you have an Android phone, consider the following apps to make your holiday season much easier this year. (We cover iPhone apps in a separate blog post.)
This app comes with 48 Christmas ringtones to get you in the mood for the holiday season. You can set them as ringtones, notifications, alarms or assign a different tone for each of your favorite contacts.
This app allows you to sort and track presents by person, with detailed notes, including clothing sizes. You can assign multiple gift ideas to one contact and the app can alert you to remind you which gifts you still need to buy. To make sure you don't break the bank, the app also lets you know how much money you've spent so far. All of the data is backed up to your email.
Sending greeting cards was never this easy - virtual cards, that is. This app contains more than fifteen simple-to-use templates, and you can incorporate your own text and photos. You can save your favorite cards for later use, and share them via email, Facebook, Twitter, or any photo-sharing program.
Package Tracker Pro
Getting Christmas and Hanukkah gifts to their destination on time isn't always that easy. This app provides an all-in-one package tracking solution. Your parcels can be tracked from the second they are shipped to the second they arrive. Whether it's UPS, FedEx, the USPS, DHL, Pony Express or carrier pigeon, the Package Tracker Pro app can alert you where your precious gift is via email, or by ringtone, LED or vibrate alert.
This app allows kids and adults to put together a puzzle of Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer on the screen of their Android phone or tablet. Three levels of difficulty are available – each level is timed so you can compete with your family too.
This app gives you direct contact with Santa, himself. You can talk to Santa and have him repeat your words back. If you’re feeling generous, give him milk and cookies. Or if you’re in for a laugh, tickle him. You can also send personalized Christmas cards or share videos via email, text, Facebook, or YouTube.
