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!

It would be nice if you began mentioning if some of these apps are only applicable to certain countries. Not just this article, but news in general which can quite often be country specific.

Why dont you make android authority only available in US
Why you just don’t shut up and stop spreading your racist opinion??
Bro, we the guys from other countries too are pretty much interested in the stuff AA puts up and it’s kinda greedy to keep AA only in the US so back off and let us too be updated on the android front worldwide.
Thats the problem, a lot of the apps, reviews and news are only relative to the US and AA makes very little or no attempt to mention that.
U really think they care where u r from? It is page views/ad click that matters.
By making articles relevant to a larger audience they get more clicks.
I understand a person’s frustration on region specific content, but asking the authors to cover something that is not in their region just to fulfill your desires is a little pointless if you ask me.
Just find another source for content or skip the article, it really isn’t that difficult.
It’s not to fulfil a specific person’s desires it’s about capturing a larger audience, other companies do it. If they are not willing to do that, at least be clear they don’t care about publishing to the rest of the world.
Just skip the region specific articles and stop complaining, it’s that simple. Or go find other outlets. If a website is based out of a particular region, they will more than likely be covering news pertaining to that location. No need to post negative comments just because it does not pertain to YOU.
That’s the point if you bothered to read the comments, they DONT tell you which are region specific. I’ll post negative comments if I want, that’s what comments sections are for amoung other things. Who are you to tell people what to do?
I’m just trying to help you save precious minutes of complaining that you can do on an article that actually matters to you. The fact that you can read a title with the word “Halloween” in it and still can’t decide whether or not you celebrate the holiday until after the article is finished is what I’d be more concerned about if I were you.
Again, you’ve not read the comments or fully understand what I and others are saying. Halloween and where it’s celebrated is not the issue. I’m referring to the fact that *some* of the apps are region specific and/or ones that sell products are related to stores available in certain regions. Most other conscientious magazines would point this out.. just as a generic mobile mag would point out an app is available for iOS or Android.
Sorry if I came off a little rude, but in your comments you mention the “articles/news” being region specific as the issue 3 times, and the apps twice. I was responding to the articles/news portion
Nightmare set for tonight after seeing that Pet Cemetery dog :( On a lighter note I just released the Creepy Halloween Town – Sure it would have made your list http://bit.ly/HplBNF

In case you need a fun music for halloween evening, I made one for the Halloween theme of my game: Mahjong In Poculis. It is available on Google Play for free without in-game ads :)
Recently I was extremely low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this.. – mnhk
