Our phones can distract us from the biblical message of Christmas, but they can also offer ways to be more productive, organized and connected to Christ this time of year.
Here are some apps that could be a fun gift for yourself this holiday season.
The right music can provide a festive atmosphere to a small group party or family gathering.
Audiobooks — Why not make long drives more productive and enjoyable by listening to audiobooks?
Travel — Many families’ Christmas plans involve trying to keep airlines, car rentals and hotel bookings in order.
If that looks like your holidays, check out an app like TripIt that keeps all the travel details organized in one place.
Shopping — So much time is spent trying to find the perfect gift for the perfect person. That doesn’t always require treks through crowds and traffic.
Online retailers like Amazon make shopping much easier. Stores like Walmart have apps that enable you to deliver the gift or pick it up in store. Lifeway Stores also has an app to help your gift buying.
Lists — Santa is not the only one with lists this time of year. From lists of gifts to buy to to-do lists to get ready for guests coming over, Christmas is full of lists.
Bible — Above everything else during the Christmas season, we need to constantly remind ourselves of the good news of Jesus’ arrival.
Having YouVersion’s Bible app can provide a great Scripture reading plan and Advent devotional.
