NORAD Tracks Santa Claus
NORAD Tracks Santa Claus is the official application of the NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) Santa Tracks program, established in 1955 to track the whereabouts of Santa Claus around the world while delivering gifts to children, but only if they are asleep. This free application for iOS and Android links to the famous website that allows you and children to enjoy a back account for Christmas Eve and also includes a games room with different and challenging games for entertainers every day until Christmas Eve. You can also listen to Christmas music, watch videos and read books. On Christmas Eve, the program begins tracking Santa Claus trips on a route known only to him and, presumably, to his reindeer crew.
This fun application is an Advent calendar for your phone that shows the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until Christmas day. You can choose the theme you like best, and there is a new gift to discover every day, such as a new wallpaper with Christmas themes to stimulate your Navideo spirit, along with a festive event and a link to a Christmas song. It's free and there are no ads, but you have to buy the version premium to get high quality wallpapers. The link for iOS devices is from a different application of the same name, which is a bit more basic, but it also offers the back account until Christmas Day.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

They can play seven different mini-games like Memory Match, Jigsaw Puzzle, Word Search and Sequence. Touch the images to show new words, enjoy the narration and be careful with the custom sound effects.
This application helps you create a fun dance video of elves starring you, family members (including four-legged) and friends. You replace the faces of the elves with the faces of up to five people or pets. Once the faces are placed, you select a dance theme and the application creates a magical dance video. Once this is done, you can share the video on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. It is also possible to acquire additional videos with different themes.

He also has a Santa Chatbot who chat with you, as if you were talking to the real Santa. In addition, you can request a call from Santa Claus and let your children record a voice message for him. This application is free, although there is a paid version to unlock more options and better personalize messages for your child.
PNP Portable North Pole
Bring a smile to your child's face with their own personalized message from Santa Claus. The North Pole Porttil exists for a long time and is magical as always. Enter some information about your child and a personalized video of Santa Claus will be played. There are some activities included in the application, but the main idea is for children to find out from Santa Claus if they are on the list of naughty or nice ones. This application has some purchases in-app which include a reaction recorder and story time. A new option for the family includes videos in which Santa Claus speaks to a group saying: "Hello, friends!"
The Christmas List
This is a very useful application that will help you keep track of your Christmas shopping. Make a list of all the people for whom you need to buy gifts and then set a budget. For example, you add a friend: enter a store, touch his name on the list and see the items you want to buy for this person and, of course, the budget. Then you touch the items as you buy them, and when you return to the main screen, you can see how much you have left to spend on your gifts. For $ 3 dollars, it is an excellent way to keep track of your purchases and, most importantly, not to exceed your budget.
