Five iPhone apps for the Holiday Season

Many of you may receive brand new iPhones under the tree and in your stockings this Christmas, and so we thought we’d share some Christmassy iPhone apps for you to play with. These will keep you entertained for hours once the excitement of the festivities has passed!

Elf Command

A free app, Elf Command is a game requiring quick reflexes. The aim of the game is to help the elves sort out their Christmas deliveries by putting presents from the conveyer belt into the right boxes - get them right and you rack up points. The game  speeds up as you play, so you have to deliver them all before time runs out. A great game to check out how fast your reactions are!  


Christmas Quest

A stunning visual game, Christmas Quest is  a High Definition (HD) game which makes it really enjoyable to play. The aim of the game is quite simple- tilt your iPhone to steer the sleigh  over New York City.  Flying over buildings and lakes with your reindeer through the snow, it is fun to see where Santa goes! There is a choice of exploring the city in Santa’s sleigh, or collecting letters from children - all before time runs out. This is a fantastic free app which is even suitable for children aged 4 and above. 

Angry Birds Seasons

For  all the Angry Bird fans out there, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a recently updated Angry Birds Season app for only 69p. Use your skills with 25 new festive levels, a harder challenge than the usual Angry Birds. With the pigs wearing Christmas hats and scarves, they smash into Gingerbread cookies, gifts, and bells, so it’s more addictive than ever!


Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift

We have mentioned Cut The Rope in a post before, but we couldn’t resist this festive version.- Zeptolab who make Cut The Rope have given their fans a special Christmas gift with 25 levels. The little green character ‘Om Nom’ has a hunger for all things sugary, so the aim of the game is feed him!  It sounds simple, but there are things that get in the way such as spikes, stars and spiders. Shake your iPhone for an extra special surprise! Cut The Rope: Holiday Gift is a really fun game that you can play for hours and costs only 69p.



If you want the spirit of Christmas to  continue all year round then this is the perfect app for you. iTree is a cute little app of a virtual snow globe, where you can watch your tree grow from a seedling to a fully grown tree. Nearer to Christmas you can decorate your tree by adding some baubles, candles and candy sticks. Tap on the tree to turn the lights on and change the background from day to night. Like any snow globe, shake your iPhone to see the snow fall!
