Arthur Christmas: Elf Run Premium
Price: $0.99 (Rs 53)
Size: 36.9 MB
iOS version: 4.1
It seems that Santa is not around this Christmas but since the show must go on, the elves have taken over the responsibility to ensure that gifts get delivered to all the children in the world. You play Arthur, one of the helper elves. In this game, your mission is to jump, crawl, and dive through houses as fast as you can and without making a noise so as to not wake up any children. You must avoid crashing into anything and even feed the pets to keep them quiet, failing which your mission will fail. Time is of the essence, so you must hurry and finish the job before sunrise or risk the possibility of getting caught. Thankfully, you are not alone and have a team of up to seven elves to help you finish your mission faster. You can gain time by completing the earlier missions faster so that you have more time in the more difficult later missions. The game supports OpenFeint, allowing you to post your achievements and score on the Leaderboards.

Christmas Tree Maker
Size: 19.9 MB
iOS version: 3.0
The Christmas Tree has become an iconic representation of this festive occasion. Every household celebrating Christmas has such a tree with decorations hanging from its branches and leaves. In this fast and mobile life of today, you can have your very own Christmas Tree right on your iPhone with the Christmas Tree Maker app. All you need to do is select a background and a tree that suit each other, choose a tree skirt if you chose an indoor background, and add decorations such as sparkling lights of different colours and ornamental balls of different shapes, sizes, and colours, or even homemade gingerbread men. You can place them on the tree one by one or do it in the traditional way by stringing them together. You can then customise the lighting to blink as you wish. Finish the decoration with a nice garland. You can then top off the tree with an angel, a star, or even a Santa, and place beautifully wrapped gifts underneath. The Christmas Tree is ready and you can show off by posting on Facebook or emailing it to friends.
Christmas Tale HD
Size: 16.5 MB
iOS version: 4.0
Christmas Tale HD is an interactive ebook of Christmas stories complete with colourful illustrations to tell your kids besides the cosy fireplace. The Read to Me feature reads the story aloud, while the Auto Play automatically reads and flips pages for you. In addition to the different stories, it also features a countdown to Christmas, in which you can count days, hours, and minutes along with Santa, his wife, and his helper elves. The Christmas Piano feature is in fact the Christmas tree whose bell decorations turn it into a piano you can play. The app also lets you compose your Christmas wish list and send it to Santa using the Send to Santa feature (not that it really sends it to Santa, but sometimes it is good to believe in the unlikely). Take some time off your busy schedule for this interesting free app because it is more than worth it.
TechTree wishes a Merry Christmas to all our readers. Enjoy the holidays!
