Family holidays are supposed to be the best time of the year, when you can reconnect with your kids and really make the most of your beautiful country. But how about the stress that seems to come hand in hand every holiday season? Domestic disagreements, money issues and some hellish travel problems usually combine to create no end of headaches. To make matters worse, you usually can’t even agree on the perfect holiday destination, which is hard to believe when you’re living in Australia! But before you decide to cancel your annual trip, take a closer look at your favourite handheld device. Smartphone apps have some very tasty little helpers that can really deflate some of that pent up stress we suffer at this time of the year. They’ll also work on most tablets and this article shows you a few of the best, right now!
Cards by Apple – Free
This app will run on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and it requires iOS 6.0 or later for smooth running. Okay, so postcards may be a thing of the distant past for many of us, but perhaps they are making a comeback. Back in the day we used to scribble a few words on the paper versions and send them off to our dearest and nearest. We usually returned home before the blasted cards reached their destination, but it was the thought that counted. An email would probably not have the same effect, so how about these bad boys. Cards by Apple is a very groovy application that bears a resemblance to Instagram and Postagram. You can take a few snaps of your family and integrate these into the myriad of templates onboard.Add whatever text you feel appropriate and simply add the recipients address details on the virtual template for an ultra-quick delivery. These are not just for holiday postcards, but they certainly offer a cool alternative to the real thing!
Vintagio By MacPhun LLC – $2
This app will run on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and it requires iOS 5.0 or later for smooth running. One of the biggest challenges that parents have to deal with on holiday breaks is keeping their lovely kids entertained. It’s all well and good installing them in front of the TV for a game-athon, but how about something a little more creative instead? This app is certainly a little more cerebral than the typical iOS shoot-em up application vente de viagra sur internet. Vintagio is a very slick affair that turns your Apple device into a movie maker that your kids will fall in love with. You dial in the setting for your movie, they’re all silent by the way, and video your target as you wish. You can add an evil or comedic soundtrack and really get into the role of director. The results can be uploaded to a video file and watched on the big screen on those boring holiday mornings when the weather is just too lousy to venture outside. We’re not saying that this app will turn your kids into Hitchcock, but they will certainly come away with a lot more than the typical arcade style waste of time!
