I am trying this app for the first time after years of using the website. The rating is far too low. There are suggestions I would make. 1)Try to put the tracker in the app rathee than using the in app browser. 2)On the website it shows you that the tracker has started. It does not show on the app. 3)Please consider adding an ongoing notification and place it on the notification bar or widget so we don't have to open the app to see Santa. For people who don't know, you just tap "LET'S GO!". For those of you who don't know, it is not a Christmas countdown. It is a countdown to when they start tracking Santa.
This is an update to my 2016 review where I gave the app 1 star for not loading. STILL 1 STAR. I wish I could give it zero. It's a glorified shortcut to the website. I could do that using much less space without the app. We frankly don't care about the games...just where Santa goes, and even that wouldn't load. Disappointed kids. Disappointed mom. The version 3 years ago was the best.
It says let's go on the main screen but it wouldn't do anything else. So here it is a year later and the same thing. My son was so excited but its 14:15 on 24/12/17 and the countdown is on 0 just like last year. What a joke.
Christmas came, and the countdown stayed on "0"; it never changed, even hours after the fact. I've always preferred NORAD Tracks Santa over others, but NORAD Tracks Santa appears to have been abandoned, so next Christmas I'll be using a different application...
The countdown on the app on Christmas Eve was saying "undefined". Occasionally it would say where Santa was, but never loading the map itself. Kept saying "loading...". Last year the app was flawless. What happened this year??? Very disappointed!
Useless. Downloaded on Christmas Eve. After waiting ages some text appeared to explain where Santa was and where he was going next. I couldn't get the map to load.
Bug fixes and additional updates for 2017.
Imagine your child's face when they receive their phone call from Santa Claus!
