Best Thanksgiving Apps for iPhone in 2020

#1. MinimaList

MinimaList Thanksgiving iPhone and iPad AppI am starting the Thanksgiving iPhone app list with a to-do app. Thanksgiving preparation is hectic, and you may need to keep track of many things like groceries, turkey stuffing, ingredients, picking someone from the airport, and whatnot. MinimaList will help you make easy-to-do lists.

The app is simple to use. You have to pull down from the app screen to add a task. Swipe right to mark it as done and swipe left to delete. Everything is super clean and simple. You can also set location-based reminders and make lists to organize your planning. What is even better is that you can even quickly add voice notes or share to-dos with other people. The app is free for basic use but requires a premium for voice notes etc.

#8. Turkey Plucker

Turkey Plucker Thanksgiving iPhone and iPad AppI played this game multiple times but could not complete the challenge. Here you have to do what the name suggests – pluck Turkey feathers. However, there is a catch. You have to complete this within 60 seconds if you want to get another bird. If you find golden feathers, you automatically win that turkey.

There is also a second section of the game in which you have to slice turkey, corn, pumpkin, etc. Just make sure you do not slice a child. This is similar to Fruit Ninja. Overall this is a fun, exciting game to play this Thanksgiving.
