Villancicos Navidenos doesn't simply offer a stagnant collection of classic Christmas carols for users to enjoy. Each carol is accompanied by beautifully rendered original artwork as well as Spanish text to help users follow along with the apps vocal presentation of each song. Text is carefully formatted into separate stanzas and written in large print to ensure that following - or perhaps singing - along to any of the carols within Villancicos Navidenos is as easy as possible. Furthermore, the app includes a number of friendly animated sheep that cheerfully guide users from one carol to the next - a feature that is sure to entertain younger users.
Representing a fully featured and well rounded holiday app, Villancicos Navidenos includes a number of practical features which make reviewing, listening to carols, and navigating through the app in general as simple a process as possible.

Meanwhile, a word highlighting function offers users the choice of marking specific phrases or words to memorize and remember for later occasions or when simply reviewing a given song.
