1. Message from Santa 

Every child is desperate to see Santa and find out if they’re on the nice list for Christmas. The ‘Message from Santa!’ Christmas app available on the Android and Apple app stores allowing children to call Santa for real and find out for themselves.

There is a built-in mobile phone feature allowing children to reach Santa’s voicemail, leave a message and find out ultimately if they’re on the nice list. Parents can make the experience seem even more lifelike by entering personal details, so they believe Santa knows who he is talking to. 

If you wish to remove the ads and use custom names in the phone calls, you will be required to purchase a premium upgrade. However, the free version is still great to use.

Another feature of this app is the profile section of Santa Claus. Within this section you can find out some fun facts about Santa on that day, such as ‘how many cookies he has eaten’ and ‘how much milk he has drank today.
