Christmas is finally here, and while the 2020 holiday season is obviously far from normal, the days are still full of cheer and good tidings for the new year. If you take a walk outside, you can admire the Christmas lights and the decorated storefronts with last-minute sales for procrastinators who still haven’t finished their Christmas shopping. When you get home, you’ll probably be welcomed by your beautiful Christmas tree surrounded by cards from family and friends. With so much Christmas spirit in the air… how is it possible that you haven’t installed a single Christmas app on your phone yet?

In today’s article, we’re going to solve that problem by sharing our roundup of the best Christmas-themed apps out there. After the kind of year we’ve had, we all need to do our best to make this Christmas a good one while spending some joyful days in the company of our loved ones. And of course, while obeying the rules set by the health authorities. Let’s have a look!

PNP–Portable North Pole Calls/videos from Santa

First on our list is PNP–Portable North Pole Calls/videos from Santa, an adorable app to delight the little ones at home. If you have kids of your own or nieces and nephews, you’ll know that there’s nothing more exciting for them at this time of year than writing a letter to Santa and waiting anxiously until Christmas morning to see if he brings the gifts they asked for.

PNP–Portable North Pole Calls/videos from Santa is a cool app that lets you have personalized video calls with Santa Claus. Just provide some information about your youngster, such as their name, age, hobbies or grade so that Santa will mention it in his calls. Then you can set up your interactive videos so that when he “calls” your kiddo, it looks like a real video call. Get ready to see your child’s surprised face when Santa shows up, knows all about them, and tells them whether they were a good or bad boy or girl this year!

The app lets you create one free video, but to do more, you’ll have to pay for a subscription. By signing up, you can access many more options, such as 50 different messages to personalize and multiple calls from Santa. The app features messages for your child to receive on the days leading up to Christmas, on Christmas Eve, on their birthday, or whenever they need someone to encourage them or congratulate them on an achievement. In fact, with this app your kiddo can boast that they’re one of Santa’s best friends. Want to try it?
