Here are 5 fun Holiday apps suggested by the team at American Meetings, Inc. that will help you and your family make it through the holiday season organized and happy!
1. The Christmas List
This app is great to keep track of your Christmas shopping. You can make a list of everyone you need to buy gifts for, and then you can set a budget for them. Let’s say that you add a friend. You’ll walk into the store, tap your friend’s name, and you’ll see the list of items you want to buy for this person, and, of course, the budget. You can then tap on the items as you buy them, and when you go back to the main screen, you can see how much you have left to spend on your gifts. This is a great way to keep track of what to buy, and most importantly not go over budget.
2. Pandora Holiday Stations
If you’re a holiday music fan, then you need to make sure you have Pandora on your phone. It has so many incredible Christmas music stations, your head will spin. Stations like: ’80s Christmas, Kids’ Christmas, Smooth Jazz Christmas, Hipster Holidays, and R&B Pop Holidays. There is even a Hanukkah music station.
3. Christmas Booth: Photo Fun
With this app, you can take a picture or just grab it from your camera roll and choose from a host of Christmas-themed stickers to turn anyone into a Christmas character. You can also send your photo via email, Twitter, or Facebook. It’s compatible with iMessage, too, so you can use the stickers there and message your friends.
4. Elfster – Secret Santa Generator

Making sure your special Holiday gift exchange goes smoothly and easily is what Elfster was designed to do FOR FREE. Yes, it’s completely free to use our Secret Santa generating tool and set up your next family Holiday gift exchange easily, faster, and more fun.
