Christmas is coming, and as many prepare to order the turkey, put up the tree, and generally join in the festivities, the app developers are pushing out the holiday-themed apps on an hourly basis. This is a time of year when many families come together, and naturally, many photos are taken, With Xmas Camera for iOS, you can truly add that Christmas feel to your snaps, thanks to the deluge of stamps and borders offered by the app.
If you’ve ever used Line Camera, this is a very similar utility, but designed specifically for this time of year. You can add a Santa Claus beard here, or reindeer horns there, and although the app itself is free of charge, you can pick up numerous additional stamps by means of in-app purchase.
Once you’ve taken your photo, added your special Xmas effects and are happy with your creation, you can then share via Twitter, Facebook or e-mail, or even assign to contact or print should you so wish.
It’s a throwaway offering that’ll certainly yield a few laughs as everybody becomes merry. There are always those visiting family members that seem a little miserable or cynical at this time of year, but with a fun app like Xmas Camera up your sleeve, hopefully you’ll be able to send a little cheer their way.
Please note, Xmas Camera requires iOS 6 in order to run, so please don’t waste your time downloading on iTunes if your target device is running an earlier version of iOS. Moreover, it’s not universal, so if you’re using an iPad, you’re unfortunately going to be stuck in compatibility mode.
It does exactly what it says on the tin, although if I were being ultra-critical, I would like to have seen a few more editing options, besides just the stamps. Of course, there are a million and one other (mostly free) apps out there that do this, but the convenience of having everything in-house would have given Xmas Camera an extra point or two.
