Thanks Mary! I'm glad you enjoyed my holiday cheer. I think we can find weird and unnecessary apps for every season and occasion. I'm researching 2012 election-related applications right now to help get us through the winter.
Like i always say....these are the days when anything goes.the app stores and and Android market are choke full of holiday hysteria from live snowfall wallpaper to connect the dots santa crazy santa videos and oh even a talking santa meets ginger, the point is that the app developers know they can sell people crap on holiday season and get away with it. And since the users are in a festive mood anyways they'll be generous enough to give the app 10 stars if they could.
I have been thinking hard about this and I couldn't figure out what is more scary, if the developers who "created" these apps or the people who gave the apps 4 stars! Wow! You might think they are really good. :D
Nicole, in mentioning ratings, you failed to reveal the blithering idiots who gave overwhelming satisfactory ratings to those fist 2 Christmas apps. Please let's roll over the calendar and hope for some miracle that things will begin to swing in the right direction in 2012.
We think Amazon's Kindle Fire is pushing Apple to a smaller iPad format. But Sony's Vita and the interest in a small device for portable gaming may create the real threat. Keep your eye on the tablet-gaming space!
