Help your kids keep track of Santa while you travel with the NORAD Santa Tracker app

We're just a few weeks away from Christmas. If your family celebrates the holiday, hopefully you still get to experience the joy of a having a child excitedly wait for Santa.

But what if you're away from home on Christmas Eve? There are few childhood fears as harsh as the idea that Santa might skip you on Christmas because he can't find you.

Put your child's fears to rest with NORAD's official Santa Tracker app for iOS. The app's most important features are a countdown to Santa's flight and the ability to follow Santa's progress on December 24. But if the car rides get too long, it also has two games, Elf Toss and Thin Ice, where kids can help Santa's elves deliver presents, along with trivia about NORAD and its mission.

You can download the free app right now over in the iTunes store.
