It's the most wonderful time of the year, with kids jingle-belling and everyone telling you, be of good cheer.
It's not so easy to be of good cheer though when you've got gifts to buy, turkeys to baste and pigs to wrap in blankets, none of which you can get started on because you're arguing with the kids over who gets to put the star on top of the tree.
The to-do list is always endless, but we reckon it's best to let the smart phone handle the multi-tasking so you actually have a chance to enjoy the parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting and carolling out in the snow.
In this episode of Appy Days, Amie Parker-Williams acts as your guiding star to help you discover some sanity-preserving apps that will ensure angst-free festivities.
Making the cut are two shopping apps -- ShopSavvy, which will help you find the very best price for those flashing miniature reindeer antlers you were planning to get for the cat, and Ocado, where you can order everything you need to create a magnificent yuletide feast and have it delivered straight to your front door.
To guarantee the good cheer, we recommend the Bop It! app to keep the kids busy while your hands are tangled in tinsel or coated in cranberry sauce.
Spotify, the music-streaming service that gives you access to over 15 million tracks, is the essential entertainment app, and the free 48-hour trial will mean you can stick Mariah Carey and The Pogues on repeat until boxing day's end.
Finally, what is Christmas for if not for catching-up with loved ones? Forget cross-country road trips -- this is the age of Skype, so why not use the mobile app to gaze at their smiley, happy faces with a free video call?
Hit play on the video above for the full info on all the apps.
