App wise I appear to have a lot of chilling content on the iPad - hope it hasn't warped the device! My favourites are:
Mickey's Spooky Night - Can't go wrong with Disney and this story/game app allows younger children to join the fun
When the lights go out - interactive story book app that helps parents talk through children's fears with them, after all everything sounds different in the dark
Little Dead Riding Hood - spooky with a few pages that make you jump!
iPoe volume 1 & 2 - wonderfully immersive apps with fabulous illustrations
Little Fear - certainly not for the faint hearted, better for teenagers!
Danse Macabre - retelling of a Mervyn Peake story with sounds & animated illustrations, very scary
Fighting Fantasy - choose your own adventure books have always been popular and the apps are well produced. Being able to buy three for £6.99 as an app bundle is a bonus.
Horrible Hauntings - You need to have the physical book to use this augmented reality app, watch out for Bloody Mary near the end!
Please make sure you check the age guidance on each app before using it with children. If you want to have a go at writing your own spooky tales I'd use either the Castlerama app to give me ideas or Writing Gruesome Ghost Stories for more targeted help. For themed food and drink ideas Good To Know's Halloween Party Planner app is invaluable, lots of delicious recipes, craft ideas and even a sound effect board.
R L Stine has already made himself king of this year's Halloween in my eyes thanks to his Twitter story, great use of the social networking site.
Hope you all have a haunting time tomorrow but remember....."let's be careful out there"!
