Nothing beats gathering with family and friends and counting the days until Christmas, waiting for that magical evening together. Therefore, we have selected an adorable little Christmas app called the Christmas Countdown that will help you with this time-honored tradition. You can enjoy a fun snowy countdown and unwarp a little gift every day of Advent.

The lights will shine dynamically and the fire will seem life-like to create a calming wintery Christmas evening on your phone.

Christmas Booth

Another exciting and creative addition to your Xmas app repertoire can be the Christmas Booth. This app is just what it sounds like, take a picture on your phone and pop it in the booth. You will then be able to edit it and add a whole lot of different decorations to it. Decorate your picture with a Santa hat or beard, reindeer horns, Christmas trees, elf clothes, and much more.
