Forget taking your kids to see Santa in the mall this year. Show your kids that Santa came to see YOU with the iCaught Santa app for iPhone.
This free holiday app is from the folks at CatchACharacter, who specialize in offering clever ways to nurture a child's belief in characters like the Toothfairy, Cupid, the Easter Bunny, and more.
The app works with your iPhone's camera to take a picture of any location you want, superimposing your choice of more than 20 Santas over the image, then sharing via email, Twitter, and Facebook. The Santa poses include an array of surprised "caught-in-the-act" postures, as well as Santa pulling gifts from his bag, filling stockings, and more. You can shrink or englarge the Santa to fit better within the frame, and lighten or darken the background image as desired.
Here's a silly picture I took in trying out the app this afternoon. Here Santa contemplates using my glider to work off some of Mrs. Claus' sugar cookies:
The "iCaughtSanta.com" watermark is included with all free pictures saved with the iPhone app. To share pictures without the watermark, you must visit iCaughtSanta.com, and pay $9.99 to upload or create your photo, then have it sent back to you digitally - without the watermark - in either a 4x6, 5x7, or 8x10 format. You print the photo yourself.
Right now iCaughtSanta.com is running a daily giveaway of a custom Santa photo on their site. Enter there by commenting on your favorite Santa pose; giveaway runs every day until Christmas.
