A SPRINKLE OF TECHNOLOGY
I can hardly believe that CHRISTMAS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!
Recently, as I prepared for a presentation over apps that can be used to improve or monitor behavior, I came across an interesting app. To be honest, I wasn't sure I felt about it at first. But, I've decided that the power of using it for GOOD (and not evil) makes it worth a share.
The A Call from Santa! app brings a little magic to your device. The app allows users to send and receive personalized phone calls from the big man himself - Santa Claus! Users open the app, and have the option to call Santa immediately or request a call back at a specified time.
When calling Santa, users will reach Santa's voicemail and can then choose from 7 options including sending Santa a Christmas wishlist, putting someone on the naughty or nice list, and checking the weather at the North Pole.
Users can also request a call back from Santa. In this option, users select the child's age, gender, the reason that Santa is calling, and when the call should be sent. Users can choose from options such as "Put on nice list because...", "Check if still behaving", or "Ensure that Santa is real". There are other options, but I would encourage you to use this app to praise positive behavior!
