The selection of “Festivus” apps available to mobile users is still relatively thin. So thin, in fact, neither of the the two apps featured in this post are available to iOS users.
Being the only apps available to the Festivus niche, their developers get full marks for putting the effort forward. That being said, we won’t rate these apps, other than giving them an “A” for effort.
Here are the apps:
Festivus Party! by MookieBearApps
Celebrate at your next Festivus party by Airing Your Grievances using Google Speech, singing along to karaoke tunes, or viewing sentimental holiday themed art. Complain by either typing or dictating gripes using Google Speech recognition. Automatic date stamping on grievance list. Spread the Joy of Festivus by emailing your grievance list to friends, family, coworkers (and/or elected officials if your country permits it).
There is a minimal cost, which was $0.99 when we checked.
Developed by a fellow Festivus fan who is a software developer that wanted a fun project, “Festivus Countdown” is a simple app that just counts down the remaining time until Festivus.
The app is free, but it does feature advertising.
Available for Microsoft Mobile Devices and Android.
