Remember when Advent calendars didn’t have chocolate in them? Now you might think, what was the point? In the same way we don’t know how we used to enjoy the days after Christmas as much without Apple’s 12 Days of Christmas app dishing out freebies after the main event is over.

If you’ve never used it you’re in for a treat. Download the app today and from 26 December to 6 January you’ll be given a free app every day. And they’re usually good ones too. It can be anything from books and games to films and songs. Each day’s gift is available for 24 hours then it’s on to the next.

The app is free to download and there are no catches. Previous gifts included music from One Direction, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Kesha and Maroon 5 and Foo Fighters, TV shows from the BBC’s Sherlock, Top Gear, 30 Rock and House, books from Lee Child, Jo Nesbo and Ken Follett and apps from Snapseed, Electronic Arts and Sega.

The AppStore link is below. Enjoy and Merry Christmas.
