This is the best "Naughty or Nice" scanning app available because YOU control the results (secretly)!

A great 3-in-1 Christmas app for parents to help keep their kids mindful of Santa Claus throughout the holiday season! Kids behave when they know mom or dad can pull out their iPhone or iPod Touch and instantly check to see if they're being naughty or nice!

**Note to owners who updated: If the scanner still freezes, simply delete the old version from your device and download the latest version from the iTunes store.

It has three separate functions:

Naughty or Nice Scanning - Secretly determine the outcome ahead of time by how you tap the RESET button. The candy cane needle oscillates and then tells you if you (or you friends or kids) are "Naughty" or "Nice." See the secret below! Features TWO modes (Finger Scan or Scan Button)

Christmas Countdown - Want to know how many days until Christmas? How about how many hours or even minutes? Press the green button to switch the count! The countdown clock even takes leap years into consideration, so you'll be able to use this for years to come!

Santa Watching Light - Here's a great way to really throw off kids: tell them Santa is watching and then show them that the Santa Watching light is ON. Again, the light is secretly and completely controlled by the user or parent with no random chance involved.


*A totally parent-controlled "Naughty or Nice" feature to remind the kids to behave.
*Different scan results EACH time (be sure to tap the RESET button on the appropriate side)
*Good for parents of children or adults who want to scan their partner as naughty!
*Steampunk-themed brass, leather and wood graphics that add a sense of fun and reality to the app.
*Real button clicks, gear turns and other professional sound effects.
*Blinking lights add a holiday feel.
*Three apps combined in one: Naughty or Nice detector, Christmas Countdown and Santa Watching indicator.

Of course, you can also use this at holiday parties, Christmas gatherings among friends and whenever else you want to show people the amazing (and fake) capabilities of your iPhone!

FOR PARENTS ONLY (How To Control Your Results)

Naughty or Nice Scanning - You control the results by tapping the RESET button. A tap on the LEFT side of the RESET button gives a Naughty outcome when scanned, a tap on the RIGHT side of the RESET button gives a Nice outcome. A tap right in the center gives a random result! The farther right and farther left you tap will tend to give "Nicer" or "Naughtier" results.

Hint: Watch the center light: it will be green if the result is going to be Nice and red if the result is going to be Naughty.

Christmas Countdown - Just hit the green button to scroll through Hours, Days and Minutes until midnight on Christmas Eve!

Santa Watching Light - To turn the light on and off simply double-tap the light.

SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS: Please test this a few times without your kids to be sure you know how it works. It's no fun scanning a good kid and accidentally having it come up as "naughty" because you forgot to tap the right side of the RESET button ahead of the scan.

I like that you can hold down the button so like it scans your finger and I like also how you can just press scan and it is one simple click and your are done. The reason I give this place a five star review was because I think it is really good and out of all the other like Santa scanners I’ve had before this one by far is the best one so I just wanna say thank you for how great of a job you have done putting this game together.A lot of people I know ask what is the app called or can I have ray it and if they try it they say can you tel me what that game is or what hat is that game called so I really like to see people like it and get it.

Super great!!!! Love it!!!

I was afraid to get this app because there are so many bad review on it. But when I realized that the bad reviews were from little kids who realized it was fake, I understood why. All the adult ones I read had good reviews and said their kids love it. I definitely have loved using this app and it has made my little siblings be so much nicer so they make sure they stay on the nice list. They are so cute and excited about it which makes me really happy! I think this is a really clever app and I’m excited to use it again next December! Loved it!!!
