Track & Treat lets you keep tabs on your kids for Halloween

Halloween is just over a week away, which means kids will be roaming the streets in search of sweet treats. If you're a parent, this can be a little nerve-wracking to say the least, but an app called Track & Treat by developer Glympse is aiming to help ease that worry. The app allows you to keep track of where your child is and how fast they're moving through their hunt with map locations and more. Here's the full breakdown of what you can expect:

  • View that goblin's every movement. The real-time app let's users see where their children are, how fast they're moving and if they are starting to wander too far. Parents can track from any mobile device or desktop, so no additional devices are needed.
  • No ghoul left behind! Working with a spouse or another adult, Track & Treat can be used to keep tabs on others in the neighborhood. The easy-to-use map features let the user see the location of their partner in crime.
  • Warn others of the spooky creatures headed their way. Track & Treat offers those, such as neighbors or grandparents, a way to see when the haunting is on its way to their doorstep. Privacy is important, so the sender can determine how long to share their location with a built-in expiration after 4 hours in case you forget.

Overall, it's a pretty neat idea from a company that specializes in temporary tracking. If you've got some kiddos that will be wandering the streets in search of sweet treats this Halloween, you can check out the app on the App Store at the link below.
