Any Apple user would know about iTunes, but Apple also has something called Apple Music inside of iTunes.Think of Apple Music as an on-demand music streaming service. The first three months are free, so that you can try it out and decide whether you like it or not.

4. Santa Call And Tracker Free - North Pole Command
Kids (and some grown ups) get very excited about Christmas. So much so, that they want to always know where Santa is and when he'll be delivering their gifts.This app lets them not only track Santa's location in the lead up to the big day, it also lets you run test flights with Santa in the lead up to Christmas.There are also five Christmas carols included in the app and the ability to call the North Pole and talk to Santa himself.This is sure to be a huge hit with younger kids.Cost: Free.
