If you're looking for some simple, fun apps or even if you want some inexpensive apps that help simplify things for you this holiday season, you've come to the right place. This list has 10 Apple and Android apps that will put you in the Christmas spirit and give you a few ideas for activities, gifts and even recopies if you need. Both the App Store and the Android Marketplace are so full of apps, it's tough to sift through the ones you might like or need.

We've found some old favorites and some worthy newcomers to recommend to you this year. There are photo apps, shopping apps, a live wallpaper and of course, Santa apps. Most of the apps here are for Apple, but there are three good Android apps as well. This list is only a guide, however, so the top choice is not necessarily the best app overall. Furthermore, all of the apps are less than $5, so think of them as stocking stuffers. Start the slideshow to see the to 10 Christmas apps.
