Used by many Professional Santa Clauses, this is the BEST "Naughty or Nice" scanning app available because YOU control the results (secretly)!
A great 3-in-1 Christmas app for parents to help keep their kids mindful of Santa Claus throughout the holiday season! Kids behave when they know mom or dad can pull out their iPhone or iPod Touch and instantly check to see if they're being naughty or nice!
It has three separate functions:
Naughty or Nice Scanning - Secretly determine the outcome ahead of time by how you tap the RESET button. The candy cane needle oscillates and then tells you if you (or you friends or kids) are "Naughty" or "Nice." See the secret below!
Christmas Countdown - Want to know how many days until Christmas? How about how many hours or even minutes? Press the green button to switch the count! The countdown clock even takes leap years into consideration, so you'll be able to use this for years to come!
Santa Watching Light - Here's a great way to really throw off kids: tell them Santa is watching and then show them that the Santa Watching light is ON. Again, the light is secretly and completely controlled by the user or parent with no random chance involved.
*A totally parent-controlled "Naughty or Nice" feature to remind the kids to behave.
*Different scan results EACH time (be sure to tap the RESET button on the appropriate side)
*Good for parents of children or adults who want to scan their partner as naughty!
*Steampunk-themed brass, leather and wood graphics that add a sense of fun and reality to the app.
*Real button clicks, gear turns and other professional sound effects.
*Blinking lights add a holiday feel.
*Three apps combined in one: Naughty or Nice detector, Christmas Countdown and Santa Watching indicator.
Of course, you can also use this at holiday parties, Christmas gatherings among friends and whenever else you want to show people the amazing (and fake) capabilities of your iPhone!
FOR PARENTS ONLY (How To Control Your Results)
Naughty or Nice Scanning - You control the results by tapping the RESET button. A tap on the LEFT side of the RESET button gives a Naughty outcome when scanned, a tap on the RIGHT side of the RESET button gives a Nice outcome. A tap right in the center gives a random result! The farther right and farther left you tap will tend to give "Nicer" or "Naughtier" results.
Hint: Watch the center light: it will be green if the result is going to be Nice and red if the result is going to be Naughty.
Christmas Countdown - Just hit the green button to scroll through Hours, Days and Minutes until midnight on Christmas Eve!
Santa Watching Light - To turn the light on and off simply double-tap the light.

SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS: Please test this a few times without your kids to be sure you know how it works. It's no fun scanning a good kid and accidentally having it come up as "naughty" because you forgot to tap the right side of the RESET button ahead of the scan.

Ratings and Reviews
Just what every professional Santa needs.
This app is perfect for Santa to visit homes and pull out his phone for the little ones. Amazingly enough dad being on the naughty list always gets giggles but the sweet little children always seem to end up on the nice list. The app is well designed with the clean interface that put smiles on peoples faces.
Proving the Kiddo is Nice
Yes, I’m a Santa. And yes, I use Scan-O-Matic as part of my collection of tools to help children regulate their natural proclivity toward mischief. It’s fun, it’s gentle, it’s magical, it’s appropriate... in short, while not a major part of my regular visit, this app helps show how Santa can track the child’s behavior (always nice, though the parent sometimes is found to be naughty).
Have used it for years. No longer works.
Was an awesome app until the scan button stopped working. All the other buttons still work. Just not the scan one. Once fixed it'll be a 5 star app again.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
