There are plenty of festive apps out there, but one of the quirkiest and most fun is the NORAD Tracks Santa app, which lets you keep real time tabs on Jolly Old Saint Nick as he carries out his gift-dispensing journey around the globe.

As one of the foremost authorities on tracking man-made objects in space, the North American Aerospace Defense Command has been tracking Santa’s progress for many years now. For those who don’t want to use the app, its possible to visit the Santa Tracker website, or check out the updates on Twitter.

For those who do download the free app, however, there’s an added “Thin Ice” game, in which you get to help Santa’s elves deliver presents, and also a chance to learn about NORAD and its mission.

The app was last updated earlier this month, with a “new look” exclusive to 2014.

Happy holidays everyone!
