Jacquie Lawson Christmas Apps are Surprise Hit of the Season!

- Animated Advent Calendars top of Lifestyle chart on iPad and Kindle

LURGASHALL, England, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A surprise hit in the iPad app charts this Christmas is the two Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendars.  Both apps are 5-star rated, and at the time of writing both are in the top 200 apps overall, as well as top of the Lifestyle charts.

Users can choose from the London Advent Calendar, featuring gorgeous Christmas scenes from the British capital, and the original Village version which set the trend back in 2010.  Both offer the same combination of beautiful artwork, entertaining little games and quirky humorous animations, unfolding gradually throughout December as the scene builds up to its climax on Christmas Day.

As well as the iPad version, there are Android versions for both Kindle Fire and Nook, and the Kindle version has also hit the top of the Lifestyle charts on Amazon.  And for PC and Mac users the range extends yet further with a brand new Alpine-themed Advent Calendar, featuring a pretty mountain village.

"Our Advent Calendars have been a huge hit on desktop PCs for several years now, but it's very exciting to see the new tablet versions doing well too," said Mike Hughes-Chamberlain, co-founder of the successful e-card company.  "We've also just released a fantastic range of new e-cards for Christmas, so we're hoping for a successful holiday season!"

The Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar makes a wonderful early Christmas gift for friends and family, and at as little as $2.00 a copy for the PC/Mac versions, or $1.99 for the tablet versions, it's a tremendous value and a great way to share a common experience with friends and loved ones throughout the Christmas season.
