It’s October and Halloween is fast approaching and if you have a smartphone or tablet, you can have a lot of fun with a slew of Halloween apps. Here are PC Mike Wendland's top three favorites this year:
The first App Halloween fans must have is called just that… Halloween. It’s free and has a countdown to trick or treat time, plus all sorts of scary sounds and ringtones. If you’re looking for a costume, you can get some fun ideas from this app. There are also some cool music loops you can play to scare those trick or treaters as they come to your door.
If you like that, you’ll want The Mirror, a 99-cent app that appears to be a harmless mirror at first but then turns into a scary photo, complete with screams or scary laughs. You can also record your friend’s reaction when they see the transformation.
Everyone needs a good carved pumpkin and the Pumpkin Masters iPad App lets you create a Halloween pumpkin masterpiece. If you go to the Pumpkin Masters Website, you can download your own patterns and then print them out to use as a template for your pumpkin.
