One of the most exciting parts of Christmas for kids (and some adults too) is the anticipation that Santa Claus is on his way in a reindeer driven sleigh across our skies. What will he bring to place under your tree? Will he fit down your chimney? If you want to see where he is at any given time (so that you can avoid him seeing you) you should check out these 5 apps. The free ones do have premium updates available, if you want to pay for them, but I tried to pick out the best value ones on the App Store. Enjoy! And don’t forget to leave cookies and milk out tonight (and a carrot for Rudolph).
