Google Santa Tracker

Price: Android - Free

Teacher Overview

Google's taking part in its yearly ritual indulging whimsical parents and obsessive-compulsive children with its Santa Claus countdown-slash-tracker app.

For 2016, the Santa Tracker adds a new redesigned Santa's Village and a new game called Present Quest, because we're really past subtlety at this point. This one integrates a bit of real-world augmented reality in the fashion of Pokémon GO: players have to physically walk to locations on a Google map to grab presents, then drop them off at the local franchise of Santa's Workshop. So basically it's just a slightly more directed form of walking around. Maybe it would be fun if you knocked on a door at each location and sang a Christmas carol?
