It’s Halloween season! Kids are out trick-or-treating, people are dressing up, and parties are being had. Most of the time, Android devices aren’t used for much aside from taking pictures of your totally awesome zombie makeup or your kids not dressing up in the worst kids Halloween costume of all time. However, there are a variety of apps for Android that can help you get ready for Halloween and maybe enjoy it even more. Read on to see them!
First up is an app called Costumes for Halloween. This app is an online store where you can find Halloween costumes for kids and adults. There are a few costume store sources that you can choose from to find the costumes you want. There are even a few fun features, like shaking the device will show you a random costume. If it’s last second and you still don’t have an idea, check this app out.
This isn’t a Halloween app on the face of it, but for parents who are letting their kids go out on Beggar’s Night alone for the first time, this app can provide some piece of mind. Using it, you can keep an eye on where they are and check in with them without following them around. As a nifty side feature, it has a “find my phone” feature in case a phone gets lost a Halloween party. Lots of uses for this one.
It would be downright irresponsible to have a list like this without including an app that gives you some good wallpapers. Halloween HD Wallpapers was the best that we could find. It includes 40 HD wallpapers that look good and will add some seasonal charm to your device. It’s free and it’s HD and that’s about as much as you can ask out of a wallpapers app.
It’s apropos for holidays like this to have a lot of plans on top of your regular schedule. With that in mind, we’ve included an app called Halloween Planner that can help you quickly plan out your Halloween without clogging up your other apps. It’s a buck in the Play Store. In most cases, your regular app for scheduling things will do, but if you can have one that’s Halloween themed, why not try it?
We put a wallpapers app on here, so why not a ringtones app as well? With Halloween Ringtones 2013, you can easily find Halloween ringtones and assign them wherever. It has over 100 ringtones and they’re all free. It never hurts to have to festive sounds along with images.
One of the hardest parts of any costume is the makeup. Unless you’re a makeup artist by a trade, a woman, or a very feminine man. For everyone else, there is an app called Horror Makeup that’ll help you put the finishing touches on your costume. Included are the classics like zombie or vampire among others. If you’re having trouble getting your makeup right, we recommend you give this a shot.
To be perfectly honest, this app may not have made the list if it weren’t totally free. It is a gag app to be sure, but one that you can have some fun with. The premise of this app is simple. It sets a timer and when the timer ticks down, a scary image pops up on the screen accompanied by a loud noise. If you can catch someone unsuspecting, it’s great for a scare but really, come November 1, the app won’t be worth keeping around. That said, lots of people seem to enjoy it, so it’s worth enjoying while you can!
We have saved the best for last and it’s an app called Horror-Movies. Here’s how this app works. You pay a buck, download it, and you have access to stream every copyright-expired horror flick out there. Given that Halloween is the one holiday where terrible movies can be great to watch , having a virtually unlimited library of terrible old horror flicks can make for a great night in. Movie marathons for the win.
Holiday-inspired apps are always a little obscure and that makes the good ones hard to find. If we missed an awesome Halloween app, feel free to let us know in the comments. As always, be safe no matter what you end up doing for Halloween!
