Best Santa Tracker Android app for most users

Google Santa Tracker

  • Price: Free to download
  • In-app purchases: No
  • Android version: 5.0+

Google's Santa Tracker app has managed to become the most popular Santa-tracking application in the market. Google updates this app every year before Christmas, and includes some new content in it. Over the years, it has managed to become quite a compelling choice. Not only can you track Santa's journey right before Christmas, but you can also play a variety of games while you're waiting for him to embark on his journey.

Google's graphical choices are only making the whole thing more enjoyable. While you're waiting for Santa's journey to begin, you can create your own elf, for example. That is one of the new additions with the latest update. Quite a detailed elf editor is available within the application. Speaking of elves, there is a game available in which elves are in a jetpack… we'll say no more.

Speaking of games, rocket-powered sleighs are amongst those games, along with a number of other choices within the app. The Google Santa Tracker app is free to use, and it does not include ads or in-app purchases. It is currently holding a 4.4-star rating in the Play Store, and it's arguably the best Santa-tracking app in the Play Store.

Christmas Countdown & Santa Tracker

  • Price: Free to download
  • In-app purchases: No
  • Android version: 4.1+

Christmas Countdown & Santa Tracker app provides you with the simplest Santa-tracking options out there. Well, the simplest option that is actually good. This is a really solid app, and if you're looking for a simple Santa-tracking app, without the added content, and extra graphical features, this is it.

Once you open this app, you'll see a countdown clock. That countdown clock is counting down the remaining time until Christmas, of course. Once the countdown is over, it will show you where Santa is currently located on the provided globe. You'll be able to see Christmas presents pop up all over the globe, as Santa is visiting kids all over the world to deliver those presents.

Best Santa Tracker Android app that is already on your phone

Google Assistant

  • Price: Free to download
  • In-app purchases: No
  • Android version: 5.0+

Google Assistant isn't exactly a Santa tracker app, but it can serve that purpose, to a degree. If you don't want to install a separate Santa-tracking app, and you'd still like some Santa-tracking fun, Google Assistant will do. Pretty much every modern, major Android smartphone has Google Assistant baked in, so everything is already ready to go.

If you'd like to surprise your kids, you can always ask Google Assistant for Santa's location. You'll get a response straight away. On top of that, you can also ask it to tell some jokes for Christmas, and a number of other Christmas-related questions. You can ask it using your phone, Google Home, or anything else that has Google Assistant support, of course.

Tracking Santa is definitely not Google Assistant's main purpose, far from it. This is your personal assistant, though, in a sense, so replying to such questions is kind of what it does. It's not as elaborate as a Santa-tracking application, of course, but some of you may actually prefer that.

Iris by Lowe's Santa Tracker

  • Price: Free to download
  • In-app purchases: No
  • Android version: 4.1+

Iris by Lowe's Santa Tracker may be a bit of a disappointment if you've used other Santa trackers that show Santa's location at any given time. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad per se, but it could be a disappointment in terms of one specific feature that is quite important. This Santa tracker is as simple as it gets, it's so simple it doesn't even show the location of Santa.

That will probably be a problem for the vast majority of you, as that is the main feature of a Santa-tracking app, kind of. Once you fire up this app, you'll see a countdown at the top, and a number of different locations where Santa Claus could end up being detected. That's pretty much it as far as Santa-tracking is concerned.

As you can see, this app is quite bare-bones. Some of you may not have a problem with that, of course. If that is something you're looking for, then go ahead and try this app, it functions well, no issues. The app is holding a 4.1-star rating in the Play Store, and it actually offers a really nice UI design.

Best Santa Tracker Android app for news from the North Pole

Santa Tracker Christmas

  • Price: Free to download
  • In-app purchases: Yes
  • Android version: 4.4+

The Santa Tracker Christmas app actually comes with quite a decent amount of content. This application not only has Santa's blog, but a calendar is also available, though it's not free. Some features inside of this app do require you to pay up, which will be a downside for many of you.

Most features inside the app are free, though, including some games. Flappy Reindeer is a great game, for an example, and you may have quite a bit of fun with that. You'll also get access to new from the North Pole in this application. Countdown until Christmas is also included in the app, of course.

Do note that the app doesn't really run as smooth as you'd expect. We had some issues with navigating back and forth through the menus. It is possible that you won't be having such issues, though, so take that with a grain of salt. In any case, the app is free to download and try out, so do that if you're interested.
