In late December, AppAdvice will present our lists of the best apps and games of the year. Whether for the iPhone/iPod touch or iPad, these apps are the ones that touched users the most due to their uniqueness, functionality, and yes, cool factor.

As we carefully craft our lists, we want your help. Let us know your favorite apps and games. The only requirement: the app had to be released on or after Jan. 1, 2012.

To send us your favorites give us a shout out using the comments below.
