Best iPhone, iPad, and Mac apps to help you celebrate Halloween!

The best apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac that are sure to get you and your family in the Halloween spirit

Halloween is right around the corner and that means candy, trick or treat, scary movies, and lots of other traditions. There are lots of apps available for both iPhone and iPad that focus on the Halloween season as well. From games to recipe apps to books you can share with your children, there's something for everyone. Here are our current favorite App Store apps to celebrate the Halloween season!

Plants vs Zombies

Plants vs Zombies

Every year around Halloween I always feel the urge to play through Plants vs Zombies on my iPad. Nothing says Halloween like zombies roaming around your front yard. This year you can play not only the original Plants vs Zombies, but Plants vs Zombies 2! I personally prefer the original game but for those that don't mind freemium models, both are awesome games and something the whole family is sure to enjoy.


LIMBO is not only a spooky game that's perfect for Halloween time, it's an amazing game with gorgeous graphics. If you like puzzle games, you'll love LIMBO since it's pretty much a series of physics based games bundled into one. What will really grab your attention more than anything is the amazing interface and how well LIMBO is designed. It may not be appropriate for young children but if you're looking for a spooky game for yourself, LIMBO is an excellent choice. LIMBO is a universal purchase for both iPhone and iPad.

Angry Birds Seasons

Angry Birds Seasons isn't just fun for Halloween, it's fun for every season. With specific level packs for pretty much any season you can imagine, Angry Birds Seasons is one that's sure to keep adults and kids alike entertained. New updates to seasons bring power packs and other interactive items too so if you haven't picked up an Angry Birds game in a while, now is a great time to check one out!

It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown is a fan favorite around lots of different holiday seasons and Halloween is no exception. It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is a great story that many of us were read as children. Now you can get it directly on your iPhone and iPad. The best part is it's interactive. It's great for young children to read along with and explore on their own, or together with you.

Foodie Recipes

Part of the fun of Halloween is the candy and treats that come with it. The Foodie app updates regularly to feature recipes that are fun for every season and Halloween is no exception. Whether you're looking for fun recipes to do with the kids or drink recipes for an adult party, Foodie's got them all. Along with detailed instructions, each recipe is accompanied by beautiful images too. I've found Foodie to be a great resource for every season so it may just be something you want to keep on standby for the upcoming holiday season as well.

For under 5's who you do not want to go out Trick or Treating, check out my Halloween Treat Hunt app - and create your own fun experience for your children.
