Halloween apps for Android - Scare Your Friends
Scare Your Friends

[Price: Free]
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.

Get it on Google Play
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!
