[prMac.com] Pleasanton, California - AppThem, a leading developer of hybrid iPhone applications, today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Appy Holiday 1.7, and with it the capability of "Dancing with the Czar". Appy Holiday is an innovative Christmas greeting iPhone app. It provides a game-changing capability that never existed in any Ecard software before, either on the Internet or on a mobile device. With release 1.7, users can also pick pictures of community submitted top Czars and turn them into interactive Santas.
According to Wikipedia, Czar is a title used to designate certain monarchs or supreme rulers. With Appy Holiday, a Czar can be the supreme rulers of a country, an industry, an office, a school, a family or even an imaginary world. Appy Holiday allows users to dance with the Czars of their pick and share the fun with family and friends.
With Appy Holiday, user can create a Custom App with his or her picture and turn the picture into an interactive Santa Clause that can be touched, dragged, and flicked on an iPhone, iPod or iPad. Then the Custom App can be installed on user device's Home Screen as any native app downloaded from App Store.
Furthermore the Custom App can be sent to family members and friends as a holiday greeting. Recipients have the same capability to interact with the Custom App and to install it on devices, as the creator does.
