No matter how he tries to keep off the radar, Google has a range of apps and sites to help your children monitor his progress this Christmas.
Jingle Browser, Jingle App, Google all the Way
Google's official SantaTracker page is up for this year's keen annual gathering of festive followers to keep an eye on his progress. And, the chubby super-postie is delivering messages on most social media services and on the phone (in the U.S.) as well as his parcels this year.
Google has been using its Google Earth app to keep an eye on Santa since 2004 and this year, a team of dedicated Google Maps engineers built a new route algorithm to chart Santa’s journey around the world on Christmas Eve.
Santa has adopted technology to spread his message
Children, regardless of their naughty or nice status, will be able to follow him on Google Maps and Google Earth, and see some Santa stats starting from 2:00 a.m. Pacific Time Christmas Eve. There is also a Chrome extension for users of Google's browser and an Android app for those on tablets and smartphones. Find all the details on the Google Blog post.
If you're somehow opposed to Google providing your Santa experience, NORAD will have its own tracker and updates in action come Christmas Eve, having ditched Google for Bing.
