Best Apps To Keep You Entertained This Christmas

Written by Niel Patel · 1 min read >

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and that festive feeling is certainly starting to appear as shops put on their festive jingles, the Christmas adverts hit our TV screens and we all start planning what’s going on over the next four weeks.

It’s a time of spending time with friends, family and also enjoying a bit of downtime too, and the more and more we enter the digital age, the more and more we’re relying on apps to help us along the way.

There are tons of apps to get you in the holiday spirit, as well as pass those moments in time that are a little bit duller, for example, when your entire family has fallen asleep following Christmas dinner. 

So, what are the apps you should be downloading this Christmas?


Scrabble is a classic Christmas app and with many of us living further away from home these days and perhaps not able to make the trips we usually would, the Scrabble app is perfect for still enjoying that festive board game with family and friends.

The app allows you to invite people to play along and it’s a fun way to spend a bit of family time. And what’s more, nobody can tip the board over in anger!

Christmas Booth

For those who enjoy a selfie or two, Christmas Booth is a wonderful app that allows you to take photos and add Christmas-themed stickers to them. If you’re looking to share your day on social media, it’s the ultimate app to download. It’s a great way to enjoy a bit of festive fun, and who doesn’t love turning their grandparents into a reindeer and children into snowmen?

Elf Yourself

Following on with a similar theme, Elf Yourself is one of the most popular Christmas apps and it’s back once again, allowing you to superimpose your face onto dancing elves and have a real hoot.

It’s been around for many, many years now, but it never gets old. You can add up to five faces and spread plenty of seasonal joy.

Online Casinos

There will be moments when you’re a little bored of Christmas, that’s only inevitable, and when it comes to alone time, one of the best style of apps to download are online casinos.

The great thing about sites like is you can play games to suit your own strengths and, more importantly, the amount of time you have free. They are just as good for long sessions as they are a quick few minutes, with the likes of roulette and blackjack only taking a couple of minutes to play.

A streaming service!

Yes, if you’re staying at older relatives who perhaps aren’t quite as tech savvy as you are, then you’re going to need some form of entertainment when they head to bed and you’re up for a few hours with only a handful of channels and bad Christmas TV to choose from.

Whether it be Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ or any other streaming service, make sure you’re fully equipped or it could be a rather dull period for you!
