The air is getting crisper and pumpkins are popping up everywhere, which can only mean one thing — it’s time for Halloween. If this isn’t enough to get you in the Halloween spirit, these apps surely will!
Pumpkin Carving Apps
Pumpkin carving apps take all the mess out of pumpkin carving and are great for the whole family. Carve-a-Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pal are available for iPhone and allow you or your kids to carve endless virtual pumpkins. Carve-a-Pumpkin allows you to customize your own spooky pumpkin or pick from pre-designed eyes and mouths. With Pumpkin Pal, you can choose a pattern to carve and, unlike real pumpkin carving, you can undo cuts.
Android users can enjoy pumpkin carving on their devices with Halloween Pumpkin Carver. Halloween Pumpkin Carver lets you carve pumpkins with the swipe of your finger. You can even save your favorite pumpkins to your photo gallery. All three apps let you share your finished pumpkins with friends and family.
Spooky Sound Apps
Make your Halloween extra spooky with Halloween Soundlab for iPhone or Halloween Party Sound Lite for Android. Halloween Soundlab lets you choose between 13 spooky sound loops, like “Screams of the Wretched,” “Dragging Chains,” and “Wicked Witch,” to play individually or together. Halloween Party Sound Lite also lets you choose from a variety of creepy sounds and characters including a witch, mummy, Frankenstein, and other monsters. You can even set your phone up to delay sounds by 5 to 60 seconds so you can hide your phone and scare your friends.
The Very Hungry Pumpkin is a fun Halloween inspired game for iPhone where you navigate a cute little pumpkin through trick-or-treater filled streets to eat as much candy as possible before getting trampled.
