If it doesn’t open for you read this...

I use the NORAD tracker every year and had the same problem this year other users have had. It would get stuck on the loading page and never open. I just restarted my phone (I did a hard restart but it’s up to you) and now it’s up and running. I have iOS 11.1.2 and it’s interfering with many apps. But the Santa tracker is now running and just in time for Xmas Eve! Happy Holidays Everyone!!! :)

‘Pretty good’ - you are exactly what is wrong with this world - has to write and say things to harm just for the sake of writing and saying them. Is it because if you aren’t saying them you will go unnoticed? You need a hobby my friend and the maker of this all - considering your audience needs to take their post down!

Who would post such a think for kids to read? Clearly a lifeless pos. My kids can read and are full believers in Santa whether it be him exactly or the manic the story of him brings. If you don’t that’s fine but let those who actually enjoy life have their moment! Enjoy your coal!

What good is the app if the comments ruin the whole experience?

Best app ever

I love the app I have had it since I first got my iPad my hole family has it and I love when it is not Christmas Eve because you get to explore the North Pole and I love the games and all of the things on it I definitely recommend it to young kids but the problem is some people here that it is bad and there are younger kids and there parents look at the reviews and say they can’t get it because bad reviews the one thing that annoys me the most is how long it takes to load but for me it only takes like 30 seconds I also love how it is 3D and not 2D thank you for reading my review I hope you bye this app.
