Celebrate Halloween with This Charlie Brown Classic for iPad

Halloween is not the same without this television classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which aired every year when pumpkins are spooky and candy is a plenty. For iPad and eBook lovers, the comic can be a fun, interactive experience in the form of an eBook with pumpkin carving and costuming.

Use Your Tablet or Smartphone to Create a Creepy Halloween Costume

October is the best time of year to eat candy and get really creative with costuming – why not include your mobile devices? Last year, we saw a great app from Mark Rober that incorporated moving eyes into Halloween wearables. This year, he decided to quit his job at NASA to focus on his digital costuming business: a complete line of Halloween clothing and complementary apps.

I love Halloween, but is it better than working at NASA?

If you can’t afford to purchase your own fancy costume from Digital Dudz, download Rober’s free app. With some duck tape and Velcro, you can make practically anything work.

Make Virtual Halloween Masks With This App

Have you decided on a Halloween costume? If not, Mojo Masks’ app can help. While the app can’t actually make you a physical Halloween costume, it can give you a very cool virtual costume. The app lets you add a mask to a photo of yourself turning you into a zombie, a cat, a skeleton, or any number of preset designs.

You can share these digitally altered photos to get into the Halloween spirit.Check it out: “Not only can you mask yourself, friends and unsuspecting strangers, but you can also add a little Mojo to any face in photos, billboards, online video, magazines and much more. Hold the app up to the TV and instantly watch as Mojo Masks takes over the scene. Voicemail and texting are so yesterday: Why not Mojo Video or Mojo Photo your friends instead?”

We encourage ambitious costume-makers to use this app to generate a virtual costume and then to recreate it in real life with make up or crafts.
