Is your holiday feeling just a little incomplete?

If so, then this special edition has you in luck: Xmas Window by developer Oleg Kurchenko is exactly what you need to add even more card-themed spice to the season. The app allows you to send a unique letter or message to those you care about, and all from the comfort of your own iPad! For our full Christmas review, you need only to slide on down below the break.
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind Xmas Window is neat and tidy, though the gifts it’s capable of bestowing are anything but. Essentially, the app simulates a frosty window, allowing you to draw on the pane with a finger to leave a unique message. This is done exactly as you might hope it would be: Simply drag a finger as if writing on a real window, and the app will do the rest of the work. It’s marvelously simple, and it’s been decked out with a few points of interest.
To begin with, the app has included within its halls a couple of truly excellent backdrops. These range from an oriental decorative shelf all the way to a more traditional lights and tree Christmas offering. All of these backdrops are effective, and each is individually gorgeous. On top of this, you can send a completed card to any of your favorite social networking venus: eMail, Facebook, Twitter, etc. This makes the app easy to use, accessible to your loved ones, and quite the charmer for the holiday season.
Design and Interface
Did we also mention that Xmas Window happens to look pretty good? Well, it does! It’s got a very slick and gorgeously hand-drawn interface that evokes a lot of emotions around this time of the year. Furthermore, as stated the interface is clean and efficient, requiring almost no time at all to get an hold of. Exporting is a snap, as well, which adds up to one marvelously easy to pick-up on experience, yet one that can enhance your enjoyment of the holidays ten fold. That’s quite a package, and one we’re surprised to find—though happy to get to play around with.
Worried about spending any more money this time of the year? Don’t be! The app is completely free in the App Store, which means you can enjoy all of its bounties without shelling out a single pence. All in all, this makes Xmas Window just about the perfect compliment to an otherwise full holiday app drawer. It earns our solid recommendation, as well as our appreciate. Happy Holidays, everyone!
