Christmas is here again. India celebrates Christmas with gusto, with homes and offices all decked up in Christmas decorations. If you are a BlackBerry user, here are a few ways to deck up your BlackBerry, too with Christmas cheer. These colorful themes, karaoke carols, Christmassy wallpapers and games are in line with the spirit of Christmas and the delightful season of cheer.
Do note that not all apps are available for all BlackBerry devices and operating systems. All apps are available through BlackBerry App World and in case you don't see one of these apps on App World on your device, please check at the online webstore at http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore for compatibility with specific devices.
Xmas Carol – Karaoke – Free
This range of Karaoke sing-along apps brings Christmas carols – one of my favorite elements of the Christmas tradition, to your BlackBerry, app-by-app. Each app includes a high quality version of one carol and accompanying lyrics. In karaoke style, words are highlighted as the carol progresses, making singing along easy for everyone to enjoy. So, even if you're not familiar with a carol, you can sing along and enjoy the amazing Christmas Carols experience. I wish just one app helped with all these carols, but each carol has an individual app. There are apps for the following carols:
- Jingle Bells
- We wish you a merry Christmas
- The twelve days of Christmas
- Oh Christmas Tree
- Deck the halls
- Oh come all ye faithful
- Up on the Housestop
- Angels we have heard
- It came upon a midnight clear
- Away in a manger
- O Holy night
- The first Noel
- Joy to the world
- Hark the Herald Angels
- What Child is this
