The free "Santa’s Magic Phone Call" app allows kids to call Santa, as well as receive return calls from him. The app is available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad via iTunes, while Android users can get the equivalent "Santa's Magic Phone Call & Text" app on Google Play. Calls are not live and therefore airtime or data minutes are not used.

Santa's Magic Phone Call has been featured on as one of its "10 Must Have for Kids'" apps. Children can call Santa at any time, but parents can also listen in on the conversation to record their child's wish list for Christmas. Parents can also request personalized calls from Santa for their children by providing relevant information, or request that Santa send their child a text message.
