1. A Beautiful Mess
Created by Elsie & Emma of A Beautiful Mess blog fame, this fun and interactive photo app is a perfect way to jazz up your photographs. This app allows you to choose from a range of backgrounds, borders, text, doodles and phrases to create unique and fun editions to your regular photographs.

Allows you to read all your favourite blogs in an easy to use app, yes please! You create categories to group together the blogs you want to read. For example, looking for a quick recipe dish, just simply create a category with all your favourite foody blogs and simply scroll down to find the perfect creation. This works perfectly on a tablet, but you can use it on your phone too. Whilst you’re there, don’t forget to follow Average Janes!
This app is a calorie counter and diet tracker, perfect for ladies on the move who are trying to watch their weight. You simply fill in some personal information and goal weight and it will accumulate the calories you should be aiming for. Each day you can add your meals for the day from their detailed list including lots of supermarket brands or simply input the calories yourself. In addition you can add your daily exercise and track your progress on a daily or weekly basis. It creates easy to read graphs of your progress and you can interact with friends and others to motivate each other.
You know the scenario, you need to call the customer service line of your electricity/water/gas company etc. but you don’t have time to wait in the telephone queue for god knows how long! Well this app does the hard work for you. The idea behind it is simple, if you’re put in a long telephone queue, you click a button and they will stay on the line for you and then reconnect you when an agent answers. No more waiting, saves money and you can kiss the annoying queue music goodbye!
5. Heads Up
Last but not least, is a game called Heads Up. It was created by Ellen DeGeneres and works like a more interactive version of charades but with loads of different categories. One category for example, works by holding the phone up to your head in order to guess the celebrity named on the screen. It also takes a video of the game for added fun/embarrassment. The perfect Christmas day pastime!
