Christmas is a busy time of the year that most people find to be exciting yet exhausting. Sending holiday cards, shopping for the most impossible gift recipient and cooking outrageous amounts of foods for holiday feasts are some of what Christmas entails. Thankfully, your Android device can be of some use. As an Android user, you have most likely forgone your old desk calender for the technologically advanced one built right into your phone. If so, using this Christmas shopping application will be a breeze and even better, it will take some of the hassle out of your shopping tasks.
The Christmas List Pro
Made by Developers Simplify Lives, the Christmas List Pro is one of the latest additions to the 100,000 plus Android applications available for download in the Android Market. The idea behind this app is simple – to make holiday shopping easier. With this app, users can utilize features such as gift tracking that allows them to keep a record of what gifts they have purchased and for whom the gifts are intended. In addition, there is a per-person spending breakdown and a cost summary, both of which are ideal for those who are on a tight budget. For anyone who is worried that their children, or spouse, may try to sneak a peak at their shopping list, Christmas List Pro is password protected.
Free vs. Paid
Just like many Android applications, Christmas List Pro is available in a free and a paid version. For only $1.99, Android device owners can download the paid version and take advantage of the password-protection feature as well as enjoy the ability to back up their Christmas list on an SD card, allowing them to print out a paper list if they wish. Anyone who is not ready to commit to the paid version of Christmas List Pro can still use the application at no cost; however, the free version includes ever-pesky advertisement pop ups. Even with this drawback, using the free Christmas List version is a great way to test the app before deciding whether or not to purchase it.
Although your Android device is unable to physically shop for you, it will still make the holiday season a lot more manageable. It’s hard to beat the convenience of being able to view important information on a single device. And with the Christmas List Pro, you will never have to worry about someone inadvertently seeing your shopping list or even worse, desperately searching for the carefully crafted list you have misplaced.
