If Then Software has released a new app for parents, eSanta 1.0. eSanta is a pseudo-internet utility designed to simulate sending emails to the jolly fellow up north. The app features support for multiple children and responds to the childis email automatically. According to If Then Software:
eSanta 1.0 has been released.
eSanta is a small AppleScript-studio application that will allow your children to e-mail Santa Claus with one catch--it doesnit use the internet.
The program simply simulates connecting to the "Santaputer" at the North Pole (even with connection progress bars!), and will then send your children back a customized letter that he or she can print, or even use the onboard speech to speak.
It was designed because of a story that appeared on Wired.com this past week about the many internet Santa sites that never return an e-mail to children. eSanta solves that problem by formulating a response to the children each and every time (and is even worded slightly different, should you have mulitple children using the program). The program also displays theremaining days until Christmas.
