Appy Christmas! North London Mums make some festive app picks!

North London Mums couldn't let the festive season pass without picking out a few seasonal apps to enjoy!


Christmas Tree decorator

A simple app for passing the odd spare minutes, Christmas Tree Decorator  allows you to decorate your own Christmas tree. The app features multiple animated decorations which can shake, drop and shatter! as well as lights which you can set to blink or twinkle.  There are also 3 different songs and 3 different backgrounds The app is easy to navigate round, with lots of oportunities to use the functionality of the phone.  You can also save your decorated tree as a photo so you can share with Friends and Family or use as Wallpaper.



What we loved: Really great graphics and sound effects- careful not to drop a bauble!

What we didn't: If only it was this easy to decorate a real tree!

Cost: £0.69
Compatible with: iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad


Christmas c@rds

If you've left it a bit late to send out Christmas cards, (this North London Mum has!) then head for the Christmas c@rds iPhone app.


Christmas C@rds, by Hot Chili Apps, is an e-card where you can choose your Christmas templates from over 50, add photos from your album or camera, add text wherever you want, add a shadow and save it to your album or send them out directly from the App. What could be easier? And if  you are really pushed for time you can import multiple cc's from your contacts or share the ecard via facebook.

What we loved: We love being able to add our own photos, and the fun colour and shadow editing options.

What we didn't:We weren't that inspired by the templates- especially as there are some beautiful "paper" cards in the shops this season.

The 12 Days of Christmas


We love the 12 Days of Christmas app from Jackson Fish Market- the ex Microsoft developers behind the popular  Hippo Hooray range of apps (we'll be reviewing these in the new year).

12 Days of Christmas is a Picture Story Book with Sing-Along Music. Featuring characters from the Hippo Hooray apps- Honey the Hippo and Raphael the Robin- these cute characters find themselves wandering through the twelve days of Christmas and all the traditional gifts and events that ensue. There are maids a-milking, French hens, a partridge, a pear tree, and everything else you’d expect. You can sing along to the song and the lyrics pop up too,




What we loved: The very cute graphics

What we didn't: We've come to expect interactivity and (apart from singing!) this isn't an interactive app which is a bit disappointing.
