We basically have three options every time October 31 comes around: brave the crowds and visit our dearly departed in the cemetery, go on holiday (or return to our hometowns), or stay home and enjoy the relative peace and quiet. Whatever you choose, we’re sure you’ll have your smartphone in hand, and you’ll need great apps to get you by. Behold, 13 apps to download and use on or before the 31st (and beyond)!


Play dress-up

Going to a grownup Halloween party this year? Better get your costumes and accessories ready! Look for inspiration on Pinterest, Amazon and Etsy if you’re the DIY type; or just buy something already made on Lazada and Shopee if you’re the lazy, uncreative type like us. These five platforms are also Android- and iOS-friendly (and the apps are free)!

Pro tip: Etsy’s where we found the only “costume” we’ve ever used (and built): Wintercroft’s 3D Skull Mask. You’re welcome.

Game on

You’ll need a few games to keep yourself entertained if you’re on the road (or camping out at the cemetery). And now that the eighth season of The Walking Dead is officially upon us, we think The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land should be your next download. It’s not exactly the newest game around, but here you could make Negan pay for all the shit he’s done – and see Glenn and Abraham alive and relatively well again. (We’re still not over those gruesome deaths, to be honest.) And it’ll keep you busy until the augmented reality-friendly The Walking Dead: Our World comes out.

The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land is playable on both Android and Apple phones, and the apps are free to download.

If zombies aren’t your thing, you can try out the hit game series Five Nights at Freddy’s. Just don’t throw or drop your phone when you get to the jump scares! We suggest starting with the very first FNaF game (available on Android and iOS; costs PhP133.65 and PhP149, respectively), then working your way through the next ones: the second, third and fourth games, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location, and the spinoff FNaF World.

Not into zombies or animatronics? How about tax-collecting skulls? Yep, that’s what Skullduggery! is about. You can play this game on your Android or iOS phone. It’s free on Android, but offers in-app purchases. If you’re playing via your iPhone, you’ll have to pony up US$2.99 (around P155) for it.

Spooky selfies

In the mood to keep the scary stuff limited to your selfies? Try the Ghost Lens app, which lets you create your own digital ghost—and share them online, of course. Get your spook on with your Android or iOS phones now! 

Or you could go with Instagram, our reliable source for daily vanity, travel envy, flatlays and plandids. Pile on the filters and stickers on your IG Stories, do a Live video of your Halloween party (or post your 10 best moments), or just do simple single snaps if you’re not in the mood to broadcast every minute of your Halloween. It has apps for both Android and iOS, but we know you already know that.

Couch-potato champ

We love staying in, particularly with a good book in our hands. And if we can’t get books in print, we’ll settle for the digital kind. The free Amazon Kindle app (available on Android and iOS) is a must-have for bookworms—get your e-horror on at the Horror section!

If you’re planning to binge-watch scary movies and shows, you must have the free Netflix app on your phones (Android and iOS). Remember that while the apps are free, you need to have a paid subscription. The same goes for iFlix, HOOQ, Amazon Prime Video and other streaming services, BTW.

And if you’re looking for Halloween-themed playlists and podcasts, or hosting your own Halloween party, you can always rely on Spotify. Get the Android and iOS apps here and here. (Try listening to The NoSleep Podcast, too.)
