Here's a list of the best iPhone and Android apps to help you make the most of New Year's Eve

2013 is just hours away, are you freaking out yet? Whether you've been prepping for weeks or you haven't got a clue how to spend the evening, it doesn't matter. Your phone has it all covered. From drinking apps to safety apps and a few festive picks between, we've rounded up the best of 'em. 

Stay safe 

First thing's first; before you head out for a glitz n' glam night on the town, make sure you've got everything covered. How will you get home after all the bourbon and bubbly? You'll be hard pressed to find a designated driver at the last minute, but you can always rely on a taxi service app. And what happens if things go terribly amiss and you need a doc in a pinch? Thankfully, there's an app for that, too.

Get your drink on

OK, now that we've got the safety stuff covered, it's time to really let loose. Looking for a perfect punch recipe for tonight's party?

Hell, maybe you're already three sheets to the wind and ready to completely embarrass yourself with a ridiculous round of drinking games. There's no judging here, Bottoms up!

We've even found you a virtual noisemaker and an app that predicts your 2013 fortune, for good measure. As for a hot date to kiss when the clock strikes 12, you're on your own there.
