‘Pretty good’ - you are exactly what is wrong with this world - has to write and say things to harm just for the sake of writing and saying them. Is it because if you aren’t saying them you will go unnoticed? You need a hobby my friend and the maker of this all - considering your audience needs to take their post down!

Who would post such a think for kids to read? Clearly a lifeless pos. My kids can read and are full believers in Santa whether it be him exactly or the manic the story of him brings. If you don’t that’s fine but let those who actually enjoy life have their moment! Enjoy your coal!

What good is the app if the comments ruin the whole experience?

Don’t believe what the other comment says.


I’m giving this 1 star until they take down the other comment. How unnecessary to have that other comment up there to try to ruin things. How sad too. Clearly you’ve lost the magic. I’m so sorry for you that you can’t feel the warmth and the Christmas spirit this time of year. Santa is real. He lives in the hearts of all who believe. That part is up to you. You can do what you want with it, but you have no right to try to take the magic away from others, especially from kids. So, children if you are reading this, know that the sad person who chose to write the other comment must have only gotten coal for Christmas, perhaps deservedly so from what I’m reading. Still, don’t let that Scrooge try to convince you of anything. You believe what your OWN heart tells you.
Merry Christmas!



There are much better Santa trackers in the App Store that look realistic. When you push the Let Go! Button in the app it just takes you to the website of the NORAD Santa tracker. I suggest using WhereIsSantaLite and Santa Tracker. Whoever made the NORAD app is extremely cheap and lazy. It’s no fun. It’s 9:45 at night it says Christmas isn’t for another day and six hours when most kid will open up their presents in 12 hours which is confusing to kids. This is possibly the worst tracker app. NORAD should find another volunteer who actual cares about the kids to make the best app in the App Store. Get it together NORAD. If you can’t even make an app how does that reflect on our national security.
