Do you believe in Santa Claus?
For children of all ages who do, there lots of apps that bring ol’ Saint Nick into the new millennium.
Here are a few Santa Claus apps you can download for free and work some high-tech yuletide magic the kids will believe.
If anyone in your house has any doubts as to whether Santa exists, Kringl® can prove it by allowing users to make videos showing Santa in their home, eating cookies and milk, checking his list and searching for gifts.
Kids get a personal direct line to the North Pole with the app, Calling Santa, where they can relay their wish lists, and give updates when the list changes — it always does! This Santa will even call them back. Every call gets recorded — so parents can watch, take notes, and share it on Facebook.
Tell Me Santa Claus
With Tell Me Santa Claus, children get their own personalized story from Santa. He includes their names, ages, loved ones, and even talks about whether they’ve been naughty or nice with bits of encouragement or praise. This Santa can even tell kids the areas in which they might improve.
Kids can keep a daily watch on Santa’s reindeer as they count down to Christmas Eve. Check on the animals at meal time — they get fed on camera three times daily — and learn how get on Santa’s ‘Nice List.’ Kids who join the Nice List Club will get their names read live on camera, and receive a membership card with a letter written on Santa’s official letterhead.
Since 1955, the North American Aerospace Defense Command has tracked Santa’s voyage across the skies.
This year’s NORAD Santa Tracker has lots of interactive games, an embed-friendly Countdown Clock, music and more.
