It’s officially the holiday season which means people are decorating, celebrating, and giving to others. It’s a wonderful time of year and, by far, one of the most colorful and engaging. You can use your Android device to get into the Christmas spirit too and here are 12 of the best Christmas apps that can help out!
First up is a delightful little puzzle game called 100 Christmas Gifts.
It is a room-escape puzzle game where you’re shown a room and you must
solve the puzzle to move on to the next room. It’s themed for Christmas and
it’s fun to play for both kids and adults. It’ll require you to use
your device in a myriad of ways and so far people seem to really enjoy
it. Also, it’s free.
One of the most popular ways to celebrate the holidays is by decorating
so we thought a nice Apex and Nova Launcher theme would help put a
little more holiday spirit into your device. For this we chose the
unimaginatively named Christmas Apex Nova Theme. As the title suggests
it works for Nova and Apex Launchers. It includes a few
wallpapers and an icon pack. It’s also free and not overly ostentatious
so if you have Apex or Nova, this is a good option for holiday cheer.
Christmas HD is a beautiful 3D live wallpaper that not only looks really
good, but offers a surprising amount of customization. Pretty much
every setting allows you to add personal touches like your name on the
mailbox or on the stockings. You can also determine what
pictures are on the mantel and there are add-ons should you need them.
It’s a highly rated app in the Play Store and one that we found
If you want something more colorful and flash, we recommend Christmas
Live Wallpaper Full. There is a free version but it’s the holiday season
and we believe in the spirit of giving. Included with this live
wallpaper are a number of flashy lit Christmas trees that glow in a
variety of colors and patterns and a countdown
to Christmas. There are also fireworks scenes and a Valentine’s Day
scene included so you can use this for a couple of other holidays
throughout the year.
If you’re into old school Christmas scenes, this
is for you. It includes a scene where people are ice skating around a
Christmas tree. There aren’t as many customization options but it is a
very solid live wallpaper.
We included a theme for Apex and Nova Launcher so we thought we’d also
include a theme for GO Locker. This is a very traditional theme and uses
a lot of dark red and gold elements. It’s simple, elegant, and
definitely unlike most of the Christmas themes in the
Google Play Store. It has a matching theme, but people seem to be
having problems with it so for now we’d only recommend picking up the GO
It is the holiday season which means it’s the season of giving. This
inevitably means you’ll have to do some shopping either for yourself or
for others. So we included the Shopular Coupons & Hot Deals app.
Most of the time people shopping online may just use Amazon’s Lightning
Deals or other online venues but if you’re looking for some gift ideas
and don’t want to pay retail price for them, this is an excellent app to
If you’re looking for something familiar, Doodle Jump has been
re-released with a Christmas spin. It’s the same mechanics and game play
as the original so fans of the game will have no problems
transitioning. About the only difference you’ll notice are the
graphics, enemies, and power ups are all holiday themed. This is a
great game for kids and it’s also free so there are very few reasons not
to grab it.
This is our last theme on the list and it’s for Apex, GO, and Nova
Launchers. It includes wallpapers, icons, and some smaller theme
elements. It’s free and it’s very colorful so if you’re into something a
little more busy than what’s above, we encourage you to give this one
a test run. It’s nothing mind blowing or amazing, but it is a solid and
colorful theme that can help you get into the holiday spirit and people
seem to like it.
If you’re looking for something that isn’t a full blown theme, an icon
pack is always a good option. With Xmas Cyrcle Icons you get 1500 icons,
15 wallpapers, and it works with most of the major launchers. It’s not
so outrageous as
a full theme, but it does add a little holiday cheer to your app drawer
and home screens without going nuts, this is a perfect way to do it.
We could’ve put up a any number of Christmas-specific apps that deliver
ringtones or wallpapers, but you’d only have an app you’d use two or
three weeks out of the whole year and it’d only have about 100 options
at best. So instead we decided to include Zedge. If you search for
Christmas, you’ll find a good variety of holiday inspired wallpapers and
live wallpapers along
with over 1,000 holiday ringtones. Plus, after the holidays are over,
you can use Zedge again to find non-holiday wallpapers and ringtones.
It’s a win-win.
Finally, we have Best Christmas Apps. If this list just isn’t doing it
for you and you want to find some awesome apps on your own, this is what
we recommend. It’s an app store with a focus on Christmas so you can
find whatever you need to find. This includes apps for kids, games,
quotes, ringtones, wallpapers, and more. If you’re worried about
security, you’ll be happy to know
that any app you download will be from either Google Play or AppBrain
and it is a lot easier than trying to search through all the apps in the
