Set the mood for a creepy costume party or neighborhood trick-or-treating with eerie, frightful noises. Download the Scary Halloween Ringtones app to get 45 free ringtones and sounds. Play them directly from your device or via Bluetooth on a wireless speaker like the Jawbone JAMBOX to help get everyone in the Halloween spirit.

If the kids are begging for a scary story, download the Creepy Tales app, which houses a collection of 100 short stories, tales and urban legends that you can read out loud to those who dare listen.

Alternatively, bring those Halloween tales to life through mobile games. The Zombie Farm app, for example, puts a new twist on zombie games, letting you grow your very own undead. You can even fight other zombies. If you want a less scary gaming option, try Pumpkin Pal. This app turns your iPad into a ready-to-carve jack-o-lantern so you can pick a pattern and carve away.

Don’t limit the ghoulish fun to just your home or neighborhood; visit a haunted house near you. With the Halloween Haunted House Finder you can view all the haunted houses in the United States, complete with address, directions and websites, and then locate one near you.
