Must-Have Apps for EasterTia Winter | 3 April 2017
As our world moves faster and becomes increasingly digital and technologically advanced, there are apps to help you prepare for and get the most out of everything – Easter included. Whether you prefer to focus on the spiritual angle, the celebratory feeling it provides, or the time spent with family, you can enhance your experience with technology thanks to the abundance of Easter apps available.
Just as you can find and download your favourite casino games to play on your smartphone or tablet as you carry on with the rest of your day, so too can you use apps to help you out with every aspect of celebrating Easter. We’ve rounded up a few of the best Easter apps here, to help get you going.
Catering Made Simple
Getting everything you need to host a big Easter meal has never been easier, thanks to the different recipe and shopping list apps that are available now. Wunderlist syncs across all your devices and allows you to make multicategory lists, so you can stay on top of all your Easter preparations. Our Groceries is also a good option around this time, since it allows you to share lists with different contributing family members and other Easter guests.
Spend time reading the Bible, meditating on specific lessons about Easter or praying and studying scriptures in other ways with the various Christian apps that are available for every smart device. Catholic users can also find confession and rosary apps, and everyone should find tools to help them get in touch with their religion around Easter.
Gifts and Crafts
Use apps to get creative in the physical and digital worlds as you celebrate Easter this year. Martha Stewart Living has developed an app called Egg Dyeing 101, to help you create gorgeously decorated eggs and have a great time doing it. You can paint on 3D eggs on your iPad using Paint-On-3D Easter Eggs, and the DIY Easter Crafts app is packed with ideas for Android users.
Get into the Easter Spirit
There are plenty of other Easter-inspired apps for you to discover and enjoy, and they are in plain sight, rather than hidden the way your eggs will be! Look for specials on popular games, such as Doodle Jump Easter Special and Temple Run 2 for iOS users. You can also get into the spirit of the holiday in the weeks leading up to it with the universal Surprise Egg Countdowns Easter! and Easter Bunny Tracker Fun apps.
Surprise Egg Countdowns Easter! allows you to search for eggs in a backyard scene, with each one revealing a virtual surprise. You can store what you find in a little sticker page, and the surprises can be replaced for never-ending egg hunts.
Bunny Tracker Fun is like 3 apps in 1, and is a great way to involve the whole family in the build-up to Easter. The Easter Bunny Blog gives details of what the cotton-tailed chocolate bearer is getting up to, and the Easter Bunny GPS Tracker allows your little ones to follow where he might be at any moment. You can also count down the days to Easter, in a similar way to counting down the days to Christmas on an advent calendar.
However you enjoy celebrating Easter, there’s sure to be an app to help you make the most of this special time of the year.
