Tech Talk: Happy Halloween Apps | VideoAllison Hesford | 10/27/2011
The Trick or Tracker app will help parents relax this Halloween as their child heads out in search of candy -- assuming they are old enough to operate a smart phone and can go without mom and dad.
"A parent can put this application on their own phone and their son`s or daughter`s, and it`ll send them text messages, it`ll let them track where their kid is going," said Verizon Wireless Assistant Store Manager Brian Hoovestol.
The child`s phone will have a special "Where Am I?" button, and the parent`s phone will have a "Where`s My Kid?" button. Parents can set their phone to receive messages at certain times telling them exactly where their child is.
And to get everyone in the holiday spirit there are also pumpkin carving apps.
"It Gives you a chance to practice with the pumpkin before they go carve the real thing, or just have some fun and carve it up without all the mess," added Hoovestol.
For those Angry Birds Fans there`s also Angry Birds Seasons, where you`ll explode Jack O`Lanterns and creepy skeletons on an eerie moon-lit night.
Angry Birds Seasons is free on Android and Apple and the Trick or Tracker app is $9.99 for Android devices.
