Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Santa's upcoming visit gives parents some extra power in these days before Christmas.
We've all used the line, you better be good - Santa is watching.
With Christmas just twelve days away, - kids and adults alike can find out which list they're on, because there's an app for that.
He's making a list, checking it twice, he's gonna find out who's naughty or nice...
They are the biggest questions for children at this time of year.
Was I Naughty or Nice?
And was he really watching?
The Naughty or Nice Scan App can give kids or kids at heart the answers.
It's an interactive app that says it uses fingerprint biometrics technology to determine if you have been bad or good!
With the clock counting down until Christmas and the pressure on, we tried out the laser fingerprint scanner and the full body scanner.
You can select either one from the main screen of the app.
First for the fingerprint scan.
You place your finger on the screen and in scans it.
Within seconds it process it and has the result. Everything from really nice to try back later to go back to nice school - complete with lots of coal!
For the body scan just hold up the phone at yourself or your target and again within seconds you find out which list you made this year.
No matter what the new - good or bad - you get it immediately and can share it with others on Facebook and Twitter.
The Naughty or nice scan app also has a Christmas countdown clock so kids can see how long they have left to turn things around if the scan doesn't go well.
They can play Christmas games, get a letter from Santa or keep scanning and thinking good thoughts until they get the answer they want.
And no matter what the app says is on your way, Christmas coal or the perfect present, you can keep a close eye on 'Ol St. Nick with the app's interactive map
