In recent years, Halloween has increased in popularity among American celebrations. While it is primarily seen as a children’s event in Europe, in the US, it has become a justification for adults to dress up in wild, extravagant costumes.
So prepare a batch of your favorite fall snacks, turn on some scary movies, light some candles, and get ready to celebrate Halloween! We’ve compiled a list of the top 13 Android Halloween apps to help you get in the mood. After all, 13 is regarded as the world’s most ominous number.
Family Locator - GPS Tracker
This app may not be your typical Halloween app, but it will come in very handy on Halloween.
One of the most fun and well-known Halloween traditions is trick-or-treating. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most dangerous in the modern era. Even though you can never completely eliminate the risk or worry associated with letting your young child play outside, you can give yourself some peace of mind by always being aware of where they are.
You can view your family’s locations in real-time on a map using the Family Locator app. It will notify you when your children arrive at specific locations and will warn you if they wander into dangerous areas.

Trick or Treat
Even with the aforementioned app, if you are a parent of a very young child, you might not think it is safe enough to send them trick-or-treating. This is particularly valid if you live in a big city or close to a busy road.
Fortunately, you can recreate the excitement of the yearly tradition of knocking on doors right from your Android device. You can choose to “knock” on five doors per street when using the app, which offers a variety of neighborhoods to explore. Naturally, some homes are eerie and haunted while others are welcoming and inhabited by kind elderly women. The objective of the game is to earn as many points as you can be based on the caliber of your treats.
One thing to keep in mind is that some reviews claim the app can get repetitive. For your child’s engagement to be at its highest, it is probably a good idea to download this app on Halloween.
