Apps for Surviving Christmas

Christmas is coming and that means you may have a long week of entertaining family and friends to look forward to – an intimidating prospect at the best of times. Don’t worry though; we’ve got some apps to help see you through the Christmas period!


Wrapping Christmas presents can often seem like a chore – all those fiddly folds and ribbons! This app is a must have for those who don’t want any wastage and want their gifts to look great. WrapItApp

comes with a unique measuring tool built in, so you can use it you measure your gifts and paper, or just use one of the pre-existing settings. WrapItApp will guide you through how much

paper to cut from your roll and how to fold it correctly – wrapping made easy!


It’s no secret that some of the best deals for those Christmas presents are online these days. Amazon combines goods from thousands of retailers so you can shop for almost anything

for your loved ones during the festive period. With the wonderful wish list feature for everyone to use – gift buying has never been so simple!

unnamed (1)Mixology 

Hosting a Christmas party? For cocktails, alcoholic and not, Mixology is the app for the festive period. It has thousands of recipes for you to try out, including plenty

of inventive festive tipples. Mixology lets you search by ingredients, rate recipes and save your favourites; you’ll be spoilt for choice and may even find a new favourite tipple!


However you celebrate the festive season, food is guaranteed to take centre stage. Epicurious is loaded with tonnes of recipes for you to try out and enjoy, whether it’s for a cocktail party or a

Christmas day feast. It even comes with a handy voice control – giving you a chance to put those last finishing touches on whatever you’re preparing without getting your phone messy.

download (1)Skype

Not all of us can spend the holiday season with our friends and family, but costly international rates and unreliable phone lines are enough to ruin anyone’s Christmas. That’s where Skype comes in; free video calls

over WiFi mean you can talk to your relatives as much (or as little) as you like. Just don’t forget to call the in-laws!

Christmas isn’t a time for chores either, so leave the laundry to Laundrapp. Download the app today!
