Christmas is just around the corner, and if you haven’t started planning for the holidays yet, then you’re going to need all the help you can get! Not to worry, though, as your mobile phone could very well hold the solution to all your problems.
Earlier this year, we were spending 119% more time on productivity apps than we were at the same time last year, and our mobile phones are quickly evolving to be more than just tools for recreation. Gaming Realms, operators of Spin Genie, have said that growth in mobile internet is one of the most powerful trends in the internet landscape, and as such, we’re seeing smartphones evolve to have more uses in our everyday lives.
This also means that developers have begun creating apps that solve age-old problems, such as Christmas planning on a limited schedule. With the help of these three apps, Christmas planning couldn’t be any easier:
1. Christmas Planner
Everyone knows that the most efficient way to get things done is to create a check list, but with a holiday as complicated as Christmas, where do you even begin? Christmas Planner takes the stress out of creating lists for you, preloaded with several checklists for every aspect of Christmas planning, from buying gifts to decorating.
2. The Christmas List
If you need a little help keeping track of the gifts you need to buy and the gifts that you’ve already bought, The Christmas List can help you out. Its simple design allows you to assign budgets to each recipient, as well as stores that you plan to purchase the gifts from. You can track gifts by status (bought, shipping, received, and wrapped), as well as take photos of the gifts to ensure that you don’t get them mixed up. You can also password-protect the app so it doesn’t ruin any surprises!
And finally, an answer to the age-old problem: “What gifts do we get for our friends?” It’s not always easy to try and guess what our friends want, and for those who would much tell their friends what to get them and avoid getting socks again, Toast is the perfect app. It allows you to create Christmas wish lists, and then share the list to your friends and family via social networks. Now if only you could get your relatives to start using the app, you’d be able to build your Christmas List better, wouldn’t you?
Do you use any other apps to help plan Christmas?
