Looking for a way to make your Halloween celebration more memorable than ever? There are plenty of iPhone and Android apps that can help with that.

From spooky stories to ghost hunting, there are plenty of iPhone and Android apps to help you level up your Halloween party this year. Here are the best options.

Halloween iPhone and Android Apps for Spooky Fun

When planning ahead for Halloween, it is best to consider your target audience. While your adult friend might be happy to receive a scary video call from a killer clown, your ten-year-old might have trouble sleeping after seeing such a thing.

Thus we have broken down our list of apps for Halloween fun with clear age ratings, for your convenience.


Creepypasta is a free iPhone app packed with free short stories. As the name suggests, they are all troubling stories. The iPhone version is free to download and allows you to access a selection of stories. Or, you can pay a few dollars to access the full catalog for a month.

The app allows you to search by category alphabetically, or via the search bar if you have a specific theme in mind. Searching for “school”, for example, returns three free stories and 39 locked stories. The database clearly shows you the length of each story, so you can find it according to the currently available time.

You can also sort by reading time, by tapping the menu icon at the top right of the screen. You can also favorite stories, or mark them as read so you don’t forget what you’ve seen.

Ghost Radar: Legacy

If you’re looking for an app that will get your party guests (or kids) moving, why not plan a ghost hunt?

We were walking around the local spooky house using it, and the app showed some faults on the radar. According to Ghost Radar, this indicates the presence of a ghost. This app also said a few words during our ghost hunt. These include: sale,” “hand,” “buried,” “letter,” “adult,” “creature,” “easily,” and “adult.”

It should be noted that Ghost Radar’s App Store listing states that “since the results of this application cannot be scientifically verified, the application must be used for entertainment purposes.”

While we can’t guarantee that the results of the app are “real”, it sure made us scream and laugh a lot. So, it’s a great app to use while you’re out for a walk this Halloween. This app is free, but has in-app ads. You can take advantage of in-app purchases to remove ads, get more spoken word storage, and access Vox settings.

Lists To do

Any type of party planning requires a lot of organization. The To-Do List app will help you work on a task that feels like a big one by breaking it down into smaller parts. This free app takes to-do lists to another level.

You can create multiple lists for all aspects of your event, as well as categorize your to-do lists. So you could have one list for party food, one for decorations, and another for invitations, for example.

As the image above shows, you can add cute graphics next to each to-do list, helping you quickly find the list you need. (We had to pick a pumpkin for Halloween!) When you tap on the list, you can clearly see the tasks you have to do. After you finish the task, just tick it. It’s easy to add or remove items, so you can keep the list up to date.

Or, you can leave a ticked item in its place, so you can see how much you’ve accomplished. You can also share lists with contacts, print them, or save them to Pinterest, your files, or Dropbox. So even if you prefer paper lists, this app can still be a great tool.

Tasty is a free video recipe app that allows registered users to post their own recipes. You don’t need to register to use it. Once downloaded, you can browse, or search for specific recipes or keywords. When you search for “Halloween,” hundreds of recipes appear, including food and drink.

All recipes have videos to follow, so they’re great for those who don’t have much experience in the kitchen. Each recipe also has ingredients, servings, special equipment needed, nutritional information, and how it’s written. There are also tips from other registered users who have tried the recipe themselves. When you find a recipe you like, you can save it to easily find it again later.

Most of the apps listed offer in-app purchases, but a paid version isn’t always necessary to help you have a great Halloween. And this app is just one way that technology can enhance the Halloween experience.
