Truly Magical


This app brought so much joy to our youngest daughter (8y/o). She has special needs and this was the first Christmas (2017) that concept of Christmas and the magic of Santa really made sense to her. She was brave and sat on Santa’s lap and spoke with him. The video’s that we were able to create we SO special to her and she still speaks of them/him with joy and fondness. The ability to personalize the videos and to create several videos and calls was beyond the value of the extra cost to upgrade the app! Thank you! We didn’t experience any glitches or mistakes/“bugs”. It was easy to maneuver and to create! There are lots of great variations to consider. The only option that I wish were available is to create a video for multiple children. We have a 14 y/o and an 18 y/o who isn’t living at home, but our 14 y/o is very special to our youngest and the videos would have been even more exciting if the videos could have been adjusted to add her sister in it and have it personalized to both girls. With that. Wing said, we were able to add her sisters picture into the videos, so that was a nice option, but we couldn’t make it so that Santa recognized both girls in one video..if that makes sense.

Updated Review


I guess the elves have been hard at work and fixed the picture bug. Thanks for working to get this corrected! The app works like it is supposed to now and my kids love it again.

Previous review: I have used this app for the past two years without a problem. This year however photos will not upload. The size of standard cell phone photos is apparently too large for this year’s version of the app. This is a huge oversight by the developers! If this problem is not addressed soon it will pretty much be a useless purchase this year. Disappointing from an app my kids have really loved in the past. I hope it gets fixed so I can change this review.

Also, I have saw on some of the responses the developer telling users they can still use the website. That is true enough, but the reason we pay for an app is the convenience of not having to upload pictures to a pc. That extra step is too time consuming and is not an adequate answer to the problem in this app.

Changing previous review


UPDATE: A recent update has fixed a TON of issues! Audio has been corrected and they also changed the photo format so that most recent photos are showing up first. Creating videos was quick and easy, great quality and the kids LOVED them (as usual)

I also just wanted to say a quick thank you for adding my daughter’s name (Eisley) into the list of names Santa can say. He couldn’t last year so I was thrilled it was available this year even though it’s not common.

Once again, VERY happy with this service. Thank you for listening to your customers.

Previous review below:

I’ve been using this service for years with all my kids and getting high quality videos. THIS year, I don’t know who they have managing this application but it is complete and utter garbage. I paid for the premium videos and was only met with constant crashing (which erases all your progress), photos not uploading and a mind numbingly idiotic set up which pulls up pictures listed from oldest to most recent... so I get to scroll through thousands of photos just to get to the ones I need... only for them to not upload and inevitably causing the app to crash.

When I finally was able to get a video created, the sound is so low, I can’t hear it.

Awesome. Thanks for the time wasted and useless video, pnp. Hopefully my 10 dollars can assist you in hiring better programmers in 2018.
