Chad's Pick: Christmas C@rds

Christmas C@rds is a fun little app that can take a bit of hassle out of holiday cards and make it fun on your iPhone. This app comes with more than 30 templates you can customize with colors, text and your own picture! If I wasn't married, I would go this route for my holiday cards, but the Mrs. put a stop to that. If you are in a pinch and need some great looking, fun eCards, you can't go wrong with Christmas C@rds! [$1.99 - iTunes link]


Chris' Pick: Dr. Seuss Camera Grinch Edition

I was trying out a few holiday themed apps this week, and my pick of the week is the Dr. Seuss Camera. With this app, you can take a photograph with your iPhone, and super-impose a "Grinch" scene on it to give it a holiday vibe - pretty similar to many of the other "insert your face in a scene" type of apps. From simply putting someone's face on the Grinch's body to creating more of a Christmas card type of image, there are 23 difference scenes to choose from. It's a fun way to add a little holiday cheer to your images! [$1.99 - iTunes link]

Derrick's Pick: Crazy Snowboard - Holiday Special

Crazy Snowboard is a very fun snowboard app that has many fun levels to play, What I love about Crazy Snowboard is that the developer has updated the app just for Christmas and all the levels are christmas themed![$2.99 - iTunes link]

Georgia's Pick: Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition

With all of the Holiday stress of finding gifts and busy shopping malls, my holiday pick is Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition. Whether it is removing candy canes from a generic elf or taping back together a reindeer, this game is a stress reliever. [Free - iTunes link]


Jeremy's Pick: Elf

Elf is a very simple, yet highly addictive game. The objective is to simply is to collect stars and candy canes to make your Elf fly, glide, and jump as high as he can. Toss in the Christmas touch and you have yourself a $.99 holiday time killer. [Free - iTunes link]

Matt's Pick: Christmas Camera

Christmas Camera (tm) is a pretty cool application that allows you to take photos of people and overlay different themes or a Santa hat on top of the image - creating one whole Christmas themed photo. The app has numerous different themes as well as a Santa hat and photo frames. Had a bit of fun updating several of my friends photos! [Free - iTunes link]
