Christmas Tree Decorator®
We can’t wait to put up our Christmas tree, but until we get out all the boxes and unpack the ornaments, the Christmas Tree Decorator app lets us practice our hand at decorating ahead of time. This high-res app lets us decorate a tree in three different “locations,” with lots of decorations to choose from and Christmas music in the background to set the mood just right. Sound effects and animation like falling snow add to the fun; don’t drop an ornament, or it will shatter! Your tree lights, just like the ones at home, can stay lit steadily, they can blink or twinkle. Save a high-quality image of your finished tree to share with family and friends. From ANDESigned, LLC. Cost: $0.99.
