There is a spooky feeling in the air this time of year. As the temperature drops, and the leaves change color, pumpkins begin to mysteriously appear at every turn. Pumpkin beer, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin donuts…it must be close to Halloween.
Before you put on your costume and grab your favorite pumpkin-flavored beverage be sure to load up your phone with some essential Halloween apps. Check out our favorite apps for this creepy and scary holiday below. Boo!
