Some apps are only relevant for a short time and this is one of them. Click the radar icon in the bottom right corner and Where Is Santa sweeps the map of the Earth showing Santa Claus’s current location. On nights other than Christmas Eve, the app will notify you what Santa is doing while at the North Pole.

Click the top-right “My Home” icon and the app will zoom to your home and let you know how long you have to wait for St. Nick’s arrival.

You can download this app at Where is Santa? There is also a Windows Phone version available at Where is Santa?.
