A Call From Santa! for iOS is a charming little app that everyone is sure to love. Call Santa and tell him what you'd like for Christmas. This one is suitable for good little boys and girls all around the globe.

A Call From Santa! has a lot going for it in the charm and chuckles department. The app presents in portrait mode to mimic a cell phone's keypad, complete with Santa's avatar smiling back at you. The idea is to create an environment that looks like you're making a real cell phone call, except this one is to the big guy himself. But Santa is a busy man, preparing his sleigh and all those toys for Christmas delivery. Even UPS and FedEx can't boast this guy's efficiency. So basically, all you do is dial Santa's number, leave him a voice mail, and tell him if you've been naughty or nice. Alternatively, you can schedule a call from Santa at a specific date and time, and even enter the child's name and age. Then Santa will take time out of his busy schedule to call you at the precise time you requested. It's all very cute and sweet.

The controls employ screen taps to make your calls. The graphics and animation go for realism, effectively creating the illusion of a real phone call that you place or receive. The sounds are fantastic, with all the appropriate accouterments one might expect from a North pole conversation with Santa. Santa himself sounded very jolly and friendly, and created an effective illusion of having a real conversation with him.

A Call From Santa! is just good clean fun. Schedule a call for your little one and watch their eyes light up with joy when that call from Santa comes in. Gold stars all the way around for this fantastically entertaining app.
