App-vent Calendar - day 3: Christmas!! (iPhone)
Opening door number three on any advent calendar is a special moment, as it clearly leaves doors number one and two trailing in its wake. And this is especially true when, behind said door, there is an ultra-special app for you to get you teeth into.
So continuing our special App-vent series of apps, is something which should appeal to those who want the whole Christmas caboodle in one handy place. Here's...
- iPad, iPhone, iPod touch
It says it all in the name really, but Christmas!! is about as Christmassy an app as they come, in fact its whole reason for being is to deliver as much yule-tide cheer to would-be downloaders as feasibly possible.
And what kind of Christmas tomfoolery will be at your disposal once downloaded? Well, for starters you'll get you very own advent calendar which will bring you select pieces of Christmas-related of content to your phone in the lead up to Christmas day. These include wallpapers, jokes (which are suitably bad) and games.
There's also a gift list function, which allows you to add various presents bought/will be buying and who the lucky recipient is - possibly one for the more organised amongst you.
Add to all this a countdown clock, depicting "sleeps until Christmas", and it's one very festive package indeed.
The only slightly un-Christmassy element is the advertising on the free version, which can obviously be removed by the purchase of an upgrade. And if you can't wait the whole 24 days to get you hands on all the content then there's also the option to unlock the lot if you're willing to splash 59p - but that wouldn't be in the spirit of things now would it!
