Costume ideas – Halloween
Another year, another Halloween party, and a few more hours gone of your life trying to decide what to dress up as. If you hit a serious dead end this year, and I know some of us here do so yearly, this app might be just what you were looking for. Getting a fresh idea is as easy as shaking your device, as the app pops a new costume your way everytime you do. There are tons of ideas for kids, men, women and couples. The app also hints at where you might find the costume and how much it would cost. Spooky sound effects featured in this version will keep you amused during the search. $0.99
A godsend for tricksters. GhostCam modifies your existing pictures by adding realistic-looking ghosts. Great for pranks and more. How would your boss or annoying coworker react to evidence of the paranormal in the office? Exactly. Not bad for $ 0.99, huh? $0.99

Undead LIVE! Vampire ‚Äì Werewolve – Overlord
Much like in Thriller, evil awakens on Halloween night. If you notice that your laugh suddenly starts sounding like ‚Äúmua-ha-ha,‚Äù then it‚Äôs time to set free your inner vampire or werewolve. This does not mean that you ought to go biting everyone around you in the neck or howling at the moon. In fact, ‚ÄúUndead Live!: Vampire, Werewolf, Overlord‚Äù is a better option‚Äì join thousands of players around the world and lead your own evil clan as you battle other groups in your ultimate conquest of the Dark World. Pretty addictive text RPG that is a perfect fit for Halloween. Free.
In time of constant paranormal activity, Ghost Radar might not be out of place. It detects small fluctuations in the quantum flux around your iPhone or iPod Touch. Once the app picks up an anomalous signal, it translates the energy activity into a few types of readings: radar blips, scrolling letters and even English words! So you can not only detect a haunting entity but try to communicate it. Be sure to include this entertaining app into your Halloween iPhone set. $0.99
A lot of bang for a dollar on this one. Crazy Pumpkin is a super-featured digital Jack-o-lantern ‚Äì you can create a totally unique pumpkin face using almost 30K different carving design combinations. Swipe your finger to change any part of the face and give it a horrid, silly or cute look. Shake the device to change the backlight and get a creepy sound effect. Whether you have kids or not, get this app to let in the holiday atmosphere. $0.99
This app serves up a variety of mini-games, like carving a Jack-o-lantern, playing spooky Halloween-themed hangman and puzzle games or tilting your phone for scary sound effects. Halloween countdown is an additional nice touch. $0.99
iMEvil ‚Äì Video Game Soundboard
This is not a simple horror sound board. It features the voice of David Sobolov, the only man who can say the classic oldie, ‚ÄúCome to the dark side! We have cookies,‚Äù without a hint of humor. The app includes 36 evil sound lines in Sobolov‚Äôs perfect fearsome voice which you may have already heard in over the 40 video games his voice is featured in. Just imagine what spice ‚ÄúiMEvil ‚Äì Video Game Soundboard‚Äù can bring to a casual trick or treating. $1.99
Have you ever served food to a Zombie? Well, anything can happen on Halloween night, so you should know how to satisfy a Zombie’s gory culinary taste without being hurt. You can find a nice tutorial in the App Store – the funny ‚ÄúZombie Pizza‚Äù puzzle game. You are the owner of a dark pizza shop, one that is extremely popular among the undead. Try to keep crowds of monsters at bay cooking gruesome pizzas topped with hearts, brains, eyeballs and other undead‚Äô favorite yummies. Lovely app to get in Halloween spirit. $0.99
Halloween countdown will surely appeal to devoted fans of this holiday. An animated skull that turns bigger as that day gets closer, together with customizable spooky music soundtrack and background image that will let you feel Halloween coming closer step by step. Free
