Last month I wrote a couple of articles related to iPhone apps for the Thanksgiving holiday. Because readership was much higher than expected, I decided to do another holiday themed Top 10 list only this time, for the Christmas holidays. While it’s important to observe all of the faiths during these holidays, most of the apps available this month have a Christmas theme and there is much more available now vs. Thanksgiving. So the following is a list of my top 10 Christmas apps that are free on iTunes. I have taken the time to go through over 25 free Christmas apps so that you can save yourself a little bit of time. They’re all free so you really can’t go wrong! I did my best to try to avoid the free apps that entice you to upgrade but quite frankly, there are many in this category.
1) Xmas RADIO by BluMedialab.com – This Pandora-like app allows you to choose from over 25 stations with non-stop Christmas music!
2) Christmas Songs by Magic Anywhere – Superior quality sound and some great special effects makes this an awesome music app. No need to upgrade this app.
3) Xmas Games by Xmas Christmas Fun Games – this isn’t a video game but it might be better because it involves participation from you guests. For example, you can play Christmas songs and the first team to name it correctly wins the points
4) Holidaytown by Zynga – Made by the creators of Farmville and Mafia Wars, Holidaytown is a Christmas themed version of Farmville. For users of Farmville, you might get hooked on this version as well!
5) Mistletoe Free! by Xmas Christmas Fun Games – Who needs real mistletoe when you can pop the request simply by using your iPhone! This app says iMistletoe on iTunes but don’t mistake it for a paid version by the same name.
6) Christmas Music 10,000 Free Christmas Songs! by Zaggle Inc. I am not sure whether there are 10,000 songs here but it does have a great collection!
7) A Christmas Santa by BlueWind – This is one of many Christmas games out there but I liked this one because there didn’t appear to be any ads or upgrades.
8) Angry Santa’s Christmas Revenge by UselessiPhoneStuff.com – Yes, this game is probably useless for many gamers but it is fun, at least through the holidays!9) Cut the Rope by Chillingo – Another video game, most geared towards grade school kids. I’m no kid but I wouldn’t bother with the paid version.
9) Naughty or Nice? by Christmas Fun Games – This cute little game asks you basic questions to see whether or not you’ll get that one gift you hoped for on Christmas Day.
10) Cut the Rope by Chillingo – Another video game, most geared towards grade school kids. I’m no kid but I wouldn’t bother with the paid version.
