Advent Calendar Deluxe Edition by Steve Todd
DescriptionThis is an app version of the traditional advent calendar.
Advent Calendars are a traditional fun pastime for the Advent period.
They are calendars that are used in the run up to Christmas day. On each day in December, from the 1st until the 24th, you open a 'door' on the calendar to view a little picture and a message.
For this app, you have to find and press the number of the day - so on the 1st of December you have to find and press the number 1 located somewhere in the image. This will pop up the little picture and show the message. You dismiss the image by pressing on the 'done' button at the top right of the image.
After you have opened the door in this way, a small copy of the picture will display on the main pciture where the door is located; you can view it again by pressing on it. You can open the doors even after the date has passed as long as it is still December. There is also a bonus door in the shape of a star that you can open at any time.
There are three styles of Advent Calendar available in this app: Religious (traditional Christian), Traditional (Dickensian Christmas theme), Kittens (cute kittens theme - there are no messages for this style).
You can select the style you want to see from the the settings screen. You can switch between the styles by pressing one of the buttons on the settings tab. You can reset the doors for all the calendars by clicking on the reset button - but if December has passed this will mean that you won't be able to open the doors again until next December.
