Other than apps for Christmas gifts and wishing lists, how about a dash of Christmas apps that might actually be useful even after the season? Today at Swedish App Scene, we bring you a dose of Swedish Christmas apps that are not only applicable to the season, but also after as well!
Went through the entire Christmas shopping list but missed out one or two? Fret not, now you can urb some last-minute gifts to be delivered in an hour to your designated location.
Urb-It has a great variety of products on their application which you can access at the tip of your finger, literally. You can track your gifts easily through your designated Urber as well! For Christmas this year, Urb-It also has an advent calendar that features selected merchandise each day.
What we adore the most is the option to choose if the product will be sent as a gift, or a surprise to the recipient. This little act is a huge differentiating factor for us at Swedish App Scene!
This little startup has caught a lot of eyes through the streets of Stockholm lately. If you have not seen it, perhaps you have heard about how this small, electric taxis plan to take visitors for short trips in the city!
In essence, Bzzt is like an Uber for short trips. It costs only 3 öre per meter – without unnecessary fees. The distance is tracked via the taximeter in the application when you leave.
The next time you leave a Christmas gathering and worry if there is still public transportation, or if you need to bzzt to somewhere near quickly, you know which app to activate now!
A classic hide-and-seek game using Augmented Reality (AR…rrrrgh, geddit?) to turn players into modern day pirates!
Using Apple’s high-resolution ARKit application, ARrrrrgh lets the first player to hide the treasure in the room before the second player then sets out a hunt for the treasure. Sounds like a game that both adults and kids can play together during Christmas gatherings!
Meeting big groups and not sure what to talk about? Need a conversation ice-breaker, or perhaps, a cookie breaker? 😉😉
Many of us have heard about the Pepparkakor, a traditional Christmas cookie in Sweden. Known as ‘ginger thins’ or ‘ginger nuts’ in the UK, there is a Swedish custom that says you should place a pepparkakor in your palm. Using a bent index finger, tap the cookie in the middle. If it breaks into three pieces, you get to make a wish that will come true!
