It's that time of year again. The holiday season is nearly upon us, but between the wrapping of gifts and the decking of halls, keeping track of things in this hectic season is getting more and more difficult by the year. Fortunately, with just your Smartphone and these ten useful holiday apps, you'll have a holly jolly Christmas, and a happy New Year too!


  • Pickle Gifts is a brilliant way to shop when time's running low. It basically lets your friends and family choose their own gifts without even realizing by tapping into their Facebook 'Likes' and suggesting gift ideas based on the findings. This works especially well if your friends and family are active with their Likes, though it might have a bit harder time with Grandma who only knows how to play Bejeweled.

  • The Christmas List is your budget's best friend this season. It keeps track of the names and addresses of people you need to shop for, and it even tracks your spending to help you stay within your holiday budget this year. Plus, it's protected from peeking eyes with an optional password-protection.

  • Lemon Wallet is another incredibly useful app. The last thing you want this holiday season is to wade through a crowded store and find out that your wallet's missing, but if the worst does come to pass, all hope isn't lost: Lemon Wallet keeps a copy of your Driver's License, credit cards, and more as a back-up in case of this exact emergency.

  • When you're looking for a holiday gift, you want to make sure it's absolutely perfect. RedLaser lets you do exactly that. You can scan barcodes (or even just say the product name) and read all about the product online. Not only that, but it gives you special offers and coupons too!

  • No matter where you travel this season, My City Way Now is a fantastic resource to use. It picks up on your location and tells you where you can find food, attractions, shopping, hubs of public transportation... It even gives you things like the weather, the news, and the local gas prices.

  • The Christmas Radio has a whopping 31,000-station selection. It connects to Wi-Fi or 3G much like well-known apps such as Pandora or Spotify. You can even search the stations by keywords.

  • Flightcaster will be the best friend to anyone flying this holiday season. Why? Because after studying flight patterns over the last few years, it can let you know when flights are delayed as much as six hours before the airport itself does.

  • Don't fret over holiday meal prep. Let the iCookbook help you figure out your Christmas dinner this year. With tens of thousands of recipes and the ability to quickly and easily save your favorites, you'll wow your friends and family this year.

  • ReturnGuru is another gift-managing godsend this year. It lets you take pictures of your receipts, then matches them to the stores they come from, looks at the store's return policy, and warns you right before your receipts expire. It looks like you can skip the receipt rodeo this year.

  • With so many people doing their holiday shopping online these days, Delivery Status is an app you can't afford not to have. It may be a bit pricier, but it will be more than worth it when you can track all of your incoming packages in one quick and easy place. No more scrambling to see what has arrived and what's still missing. Just check Delivery Status and that info will be at your fingertips.


Download some (or all) of these apps and see for yourself how simple and stress-free the holiday season can be. Consider developing your own app through Blue Whale as well.
