Halloween is almost upon us and the kids already have their costumes sorted out, ready to go out scavenging for treats on Wednesday night. But for the rest of us, who have grown too big for the out-of-date Dracula costume slowly dying in our closet, what’s left on Halloween? Well apart from the pumpkin juice and the classic horror movies, here’s a bunch of funky, season-themed mobile apps which you can download to make your 31st of October less gruesome…
Eye Color Studio
If you won’t be going to any parties on Halloween, that doesn’t mean you can’t at least make a bit of an effort to look good on Facebook! With this special effects application, get a mystic look about you with a new set of eyes. Cats’, reptiles’ or flowery eyes, whirled, marbled or dilated pupils; choose the look you prefer and make a stand: yes, you still have what it takes to be hip on Halloween!
Ghost Radar Classics
Whilst the kids are out trick or treating, why don’t you make sure the house is ghost-free with this chillingly convincing application which helps you detect the presence of ghosts, ghouls and other Poltergeists in the vicinity. With plenty of numbers and graphics at hand, you’ll find yourself really wondering if grandpa’s ghost hasn’t come back to say hi!
The name of this app might be a bit misleading, as it actually enables you to set the mood inside your house with… scary sounds. Get the kids’ imagination going wild with all sorts of Halloween noises, from creaking doors to witch laughs. Just make sure you don’t forget to turn it off when you go to bed…
Available on iPhone/iPad
No, the rock band hasn’t been renamed. This is merely a Halloween spin-off of the popular game Fruit Ninja, where, instead of slashing fruits with your finger, you’re asked to slash pumpkins. Pretty standard but beware, the more you slash them, the faster they arrive and the more bombs will follow.
Available on Android
Trick or tracker
An efficient and very clever app which enables you to know exactly where you little ones are at any point during their night of trick or treating. Available on various devices, Trick or tracker is a must on Halloween to let the children run around safely in the neighbourhood… and to make sure they don’t creep up on you during the night!
