The Original: NORAD
Since 1955, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has been tracking Santa’s movements each year. You can see where the Jolly Fat Man is headed by downloading the official NORAD Tracks Santa title on the App Store. This is among the best apps to track Santa each year.
As noted on iTunes:
