All things holiday — from shopping to cooking — are underway. It may be too late to start soaking a fruitcake in bourbon, but it’s not too late to get in on the holiday apps:
• Free iPhone apps are among the holiday giveaways from Gameloft. Their Advent Calendar, accessed via Twitter, offers freebies that will include several iPhone apps. Here are the details.
• For actual Advent calendars on the iPhone, try Advent Calendar 2010: Christmas Quotations ($.99 from Georg Claudius Brueckman); the charmingly illustrated 25 Windows Until Christmas ($.99 from Fifty Six Software); or a decidedly offbeat Advent calendar from UK impressionist Jon Culshaw ($1.99).
