We've always talked about business apps that improved efficiency of your work, but what about those apps that bring a little fun into our lives? Today we offer a small fun apps review, so take a break and enjoy finding out more.
Christmas in your Smartphone
Here are top 3 apps we have tested and selected for you to help create a Xmas mood for your family and friends at any time of the year.
1. Xmas Radio: Festive Music from all over the World
Instead of trying to select the right music for a specific event or party, use the Xmas Radio app. It allows you to listen to New Year and Christmas hits from 62 specialized web radio stations. Among them, for example, New Orleans Christmas, Xmas in Frisko, Christmas Lounge or even My North Pole Radio, broadcasting from the North Pole!
Choose your Favourite Category
You can play a random selection or choose one of the following categories: Christmas Classic, Alternative Christmas Music, Christmas Rock, Christian Christmas Music, Christmas Jazz, Top 40 hits, etc. And you can prolong this holiday mood: Christmas stations broadcast all year round.
2. iFireworks and Analogues: Virtual Fireworks
The sound of fireworks are usually a win-win for creating New Year's mood. But it is not always convenient and appropriate to launch real ones. Instead, use one of the dozen apps that successfully simulate the sounds of fireworks and firecrackers. Just enter the word Fireworks in the AppStore or GooglePlay search - a lot of free analogues will appear. Furthermore, some applications, such as Fireworks Build AR: Augmented Reality, allow you to turn on the camera and take photos of your company against the background of virtual fireworks in real time.
3. Decorate a Virtual Christmas Tree
Another way to create a holiday mood is to decorate a Christmas tree in your smartphone. There are Christmas trees in four different styles, more than 200 decorations in your arsenal, such as
- painted gingerbread
- gift boxes, etc.
When you finish decorating the Christmas tree, you can add animations to it, such as snowfall, lights, etc. Turn on one of the five carols, write a greeting, and send your final image to your friends.
