Sure, we’re six days late reporting this, but the NFB’s iPad Advent Calendar app [iTunes link] is so awesome we’ve lost track of time using it. Seriously though, if you’re still looking for a neat (and cheap, it’s only $0.99) way to countdown to Christmas, this is one of the coolest apps going, especially for movie buffs.
What does it do you ask? Here’s the official description:
