The air is crisp, leaves are changing colors, pumpkins are piling up and kids of all ages are busy planning their costumes and dreaming about piles of candy. Halloween is right around the corner and even though most adults stopped trick-or-treating in their teens, there’s still a lot of fun to be had this scary season. And, with your mobile device in hand, you’re only a tap or two away from a slew of apps to add to the fun and fright.

Nothing screeches Halloween like the laugh of an evil witch, a creaky door or creepy organ music. The Halloween Sounds Pro app allows users to mix and match scary Halloween sounds to get into the mood. Using the delay option, users can set the spooky soundtrack and leave the room - guaranteed to cause a scare for the next person to walk by.

Halloween Trick or Treat Children

Parents can use the Trick or Tracker Child Locator app on their smartphones to keep up with their child's location, provide a network of trusted adults in case of emergency, or simply help revelers plan their route while they trick-or-treat.

Still have no idea what to be for Halloween this year? The Halloween Costumes app can provide costume ideas for adult men and women, as well as links to purchase directly.
