Technology Allows for New Christmas Traditions -- Holiday Apps

Posted: Updated:

New technologies are creating all kinds of new possibilities for Christmas traditions.

There are now several apps available for smartphones and tablets that allow children to do things like write to and receive letters from Santa, watch him feed his reindeer, find out if they've been naughty or nice and track Santa's sleigh around the globe and into their neighborhoods.

The apps are:

  • Reindeer Cam – Santa's official live feed is available with an app on mobile devices for $1.99 or via the Internet at Santa will make appearances every day at 10 a.m., 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. CST through Dec. 24.
  • Letters to Santa – With this free app, children can write and send letters to Santa electronically. Santa will respond to each letter about an hour after the letters are sent.
  • Santa's Scan-o-Matic – This app is sure to keep kids on their best behavior this holiday season. With a candy cane scanner, mom and dad can use their iPhone to instantly show their children if they're being naughty or nice (results can be pre-set or random). This app also includes a Christmas countdown and well as a Santa's watching light.
  • Santa Tracker – With this app, children can follow Santa's every move at any minute from anywhere.

These apps are available for both Apple and Android devices.
