From Santa Simulation Apps to Holiday Sales Apps

Despite the holiday season being rooted in tradition, these Christmas apps put technology to work in order to keep the festivities fun and stress-free.

When it comes to shopping and gift-giving, there are apps to help organize your gift lists, monitor sales, or ones like Giftagram that make it easy to pick out a gift and immediately put in an order for your recipient and have it sent with a few clicks of a button.

For kids, some of the best apps for the holiday season include augmented reality advent calendars, as well as ones like Kringl and SantApp that help to keep the Christmas magic alive by simulating the experience of Santa Claus being in the house. Selfit lets people Santa-ify their selfies with a hat and a jolly white beard, which is fun for people of all ages, provided you're not a total grinch.
