Christmas!! by Gourmet Pixel.

An app designed exlusively for the iPhone, it boasts a Christmas countdown with an accompanying Advent Calendar feature.

Something quite cute about the app is this feature; the 'gifts' include iPhone wallpapers, jokes (admittedly some being as bad as those you get after pulling a cracker), and gift lists.

If you're someone who enjoys the countdown to Christmas or simply needs to know how much longer you have to get all those presents bought, this app comes in handy.

Android, iPhone

Compatible with Android and iPhone models, the Christmas radio app is a nifty addition to get you in to the Christmas spirit.

It connects to over 40 global Christmas radio stations including traditional music, jazz, religion-based and popular cheesy Christmas listening.

The app developer also boasts connecting to a radio station broadcasting from the North Pole, but I'm yet test the truth on that one.

Android

Get set for the festive season with some fun Christmas wallpaper for your Android model.

This live wallpaper can be part of a fun theme for your device this season -- brightening up your phone with an animated Christmas light display.

This does require an Android model of 2.1 or higher.

Are you someone who enjoys an excuse to sing at Christmas? You may enjoy the iChristmas app, developed by Light in the Attic.

Built for the iPhone or iPod touch, it combines a carolling book and carol jukebox with gimmicks like digital mistletoe (maybe it will come in handy, although not the romantic thing I can imagine).

It contains the lyrics for over 100 carols, and continually updates with new songs. The iChristmas app also works as a music player, so you can listen to all your holiday favourites.

I have to admit, I love Sudoku.

The Christmas version available includes playing with Christmas themed goodies or numbers. In each mode there are 30 levels, and a variety of different Christmas themes.

The app's additional components are that you can create and send Christmas postcards, and perhaps more usefully peer to peer play is an option.

The Christmas Gift List by Adam Code app can be downloaded in either a free (ad-supported) or premium version.

I found this rather useful to document and write my 'tick list' of remaining presents I had to buy, or order before time ran out.

This app can be used to organise and budget your gift-giving this season, and checked off as you purchase them. It also comes with 'remaining', 'used', and 'total' features so you can keep yourself within budget.

It also looks quite pretty -- coming with a winter theme and animated elements like snow and lights. Want to keep snooping family members from finding out? A useful PIN feature completes the app.
