Stop pouting: Google’s Santa Tracker is updated just in time for the Christmas countdown

In the Play Store there's a feeling of Christmas.

It’s that time of year again: Halls are being decked, lights are being strung and Google is updating its Santa Tracker. And you don’t have to be on the nice list to get in on the fun: Just head over to Google Play and download the new version.

Along with a redesigned Christmas village, updates for Android Wear smartwatches and Android TV support, the new app will keep kids of all ages entertained all throughout December. While you wait for the big night (when the Santa tracker unlocks), you can find all sorts of goodies in this year’s app. In addition to the usual crop of mini games and videos, this year’s app includes the Pokemon Go-inspired Present Quest, an AR game that encourages you to walk around your neighborhood and collect virtual presents to bring back to Santa’s workshop.

The impact on you: It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so go get your shopping done! And while you do it, keep the kids entertained with Santa Tracker.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
