Must-Have Windows 8.1 Holiday Apps #WindowsChampions

by Carrie with Children with comments closed

I am so excited to be a part of the Windows Champions team again this year.  I love learning about the latest Windows 8.1  technology (have you upgraded yet?) and I’m constantly checking out the Microsoft app store on my PC for the latest and greatest apps.  Check out these fun holiday apps –

Where’s Santa?: My girls are SO excited about Santa coming soon. I can’t wait to show them the NORAD Tracks Santa on Windows 8.1 on December 24th! Track Santa in real time as he travels the world delivering gifts. See where’s he’s been and where he’s headed next. As you track his every move, you can watch videos about the journey, play games, and hear special holiday greetings. Perfect for kiddos!

Interactive Education: This is one I know my girls will love.. Get your kids out of their seats and enhance their learning and education with Sesame Street Touch & Learn TV. This TV viewing and interactive experience is an extension of the Kinect version, available exclusively on Windows. Kids can search for a variety of hidden objects in the eight 20 minute episodes for a more touch centric experience.

Create: Morph and manipulate your pictures into funny photos with Crayola Photo Mix & Mash on your Windows tablet or PC and Windows Phone 8. And from now until the New Year, Windows Store and Windows Phone store users will get an exclusive coupon for the Mix and Mash toolset!

Holiday Cards: It’s not too late to get your holiday cards out in the mail! Create a personalized getting card from your Windows 8 tablet or PC and send directly to the mailbox with Hallmark Go Cards. You can add your own photos and access the Message Library to find the perfect holiday greeting.
