As the brittle leaves fall to the ground, the air gets a bit crispier, decorations are placed in the finest spaces, and the goons and goblins come out to play. Although we have all been consumed with football and pumpkin spiced everything, it seems Halloween has crept up on us fairly rapidly this year. Start the festivities off with some fun and helpful Halloween apps that are enjoyable for all. Here are 5 spooktactular apps that you may find useful in whatever adventure you choose for Halloween night.
1. Make a Zombie
Because what’s a Halloween without a few zombies crawling around the neighborhood? With all of the latest zombie series that everyone has been raving about like iZombie, The Walking Dead, and Fear the Walking Dead; it makes perfect sense to make your own zombie. This app turns your phone into a virtual zombie making factory – available for both iOS and Android users.
In spirit of the holiday, this app is perfect for both kids and adults allowing you to make your own little undead friend. You’re able to change their clothes, face, eyes, and more. On top of all the fun, you can share your zombie with your friends through a message or social media to show off your zombie creating skills – there are tons of options to choose from! The only downside is that the app has ads, and you have to pay for more items, but other than that the app has received at least a 4 star rating from over 14,000 users.
Add some creepiness to your photos with GhostCam. The spine-chilling app allows users to pop in a variety of ghosts, spirits, and phantoms into your photos, providing a faultless way to spook friends. This app is available for iOS users, but Android fans should check out the very similar GhostCam: Spirit Photography. It’s fumed to be the best spirit photography app on the market. You can prank and fool your friends easily with mockup haunted photos. Just like any free app, this one is infused with ads; though those can be irritating it doesn’t take away from the spirit of Halloween and interacting with friends. For Apple users, iTunes has received a 3 star rating from over 1,200 people and it may be due to the lack of user-friendliness and the overwhelming ads.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one app, then Halloween! is just the thing for you. With a library of Halloween ringtones, wallpapers, costume ideas, and trivia at your disposal, Halloween! is also packed with a built-in countdown and flashlight, perfect for trick-or-treating.
