It's coming down to the wire, but maybe you just need a few more things to flesh out your your holiday gift stockpile before you send them out to loved ones. You don't have to brave the Christmas Eve traffic to do it, though. Instead, why not give the wonderful gift of an app? They come in all sorts and sizes, and there's surely something to suit even the pickiest of acquaintances. Here are few premium apps that also happen to make perfect gifts.

RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic

Arriving on iOS and Android just in time for Christmas, RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic is here to lay on the nostalgia.Classic packages the first two RollerCoaster Tycoon games together in one tidy bundle, with 95 percent of the content available with the base purchase of $5.99.

We rely on our phones to capture moments of our lives on "film" these days, and Afterlight is one of the best tools around if you want to touch photos up just a bit before sharing them.

Amazon Kindle

For the bookworms in your life, there's always Kindle. The Kindle app may be free, but you can still give the gift of a good book, graphic novel, or magazine subscription. It's thoughtful, personal, and gives hours and hours of enjoyment.

Although you mainly rule over and over again as a new king each time, Reigns is continuously adding new cards to the deck to add new layers to gameplay. It's a bit funny, a bit dark, incredibly well-written, and entirely addictive.

Spotify: Discover new music

+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch
Released: 2011-07-14 :: Category: Game


If you're shopping for a music buff though, why not gift them a Spotify subscription? Premium subscriptions come with a bunch of helpful perks, including offline playback and improved music quality.

Gifts don't have to appear in physical form, and we think you're loved ones will get just as much enjoyment out of these gifts as they would a present pulled from an actual stocking. Happy shopping!
