Zombies, Run is an exclusively spooky game that gets all the traction during the Halloween season.
The game is built on Immersive Reality architecture, uses GPS in the background, and progresses depending on the running intervals a player has completed.
Zombies, Run! has been featured on Wired, Lifehacker, BBC NEWS, and CNN. The game story was created by an English novelist and game writer Naomi Alderman.

Five Nights at Freddy’s AR is an extension of the popular FNAF series with an add-on which is the Augmented Reality feature that provides users with heart-pounding jump-scares wherever they are through A.R.
Furthermore, to make FNAF game fit for Halloween, the story artists have tweaked the story a bit. Instead of working at Fazbear’s pizza or watching the CCTV cameras, the players are meant to subscribe to an entertainment package and choose animatronics of their preference.
These animatronics are delivered to the user’s home and they start malfunctioning. Where they were created to entertain the subscribers, these animatronics have gone hungry for blood. So, now it’s up to the users to use whatever powers they have to save themselves from these animatronics.
The video game works with a range of devices including smartphones, game consoles, and big screens and it’s the compatibility of this Halloween app that makes it one hell of an addition to the upcoming Halloween.

Ghost Detector Radar Camera
While ghost hunting apps are always a hoax, stuff like this usually becomes trendy during Halloween. Having a portable Ghost Detector in your pocket can be fun this season.
Moreover, for horror enthusiasts, this Halloween app releases a new horror story every day.
And here’s a teaser of the UI of the app.
What’s more interesting is that the radar camera of this app allows users to detect paranormal activities and communicate with spirits which are of course fake!
Also, the app uses EMF and PKE detectors to locate the presence of supernatural beings. The app is free to download and use and earns through sponsored advertisements.
Zombie Booth is a Halloween photo editing app that allows users to convert their 2D portraits and selfies into 3D undead doppelgangers.

Corpse Cam is another face filter Halloween app that takes users beyond the conventional zombifying experience.
Using image recognition technology, this Halloween photo editing app morphs an image into a monstrosity and works with several filters simultaneously to generate truly horrifying results.
The app is integrated with social media and lets users share their new ‘zombified’ images with their online community.
While the app stays popular throughout the year, the developers keep adding new masks and spooky photo filters right before Halloween to generate more hype around the app.
Halloween Girls Photo Editor
Another popular activity during Halloween is getting ready in weird costumes, and this Halloween app does just that.
This Halloween picture editor is especially for girls who want to transform their pictures into popular Halloween characters like corpses, witches, or Zombies.
There are hundreds of makeup features, backgrounds, filters, and masks to choose from, plus spooky fonts to add creepy texts to your images.
The app is currently available for Android users only and is free to download and use.
Furthermore, the monetization model of the app is sponsored advertisements.

Trick Or Treat Map
This is a Halloween app all horror enthusiasts were desperately waiting for.
The Trick or Treat Map is for people who are seriously into candies and haunted houses.
The app allows users to share their location pins and mark if they are giving out candies.
Other users can find candy stations in their neighborhoods. People who want to stay on the healthier side can filter locations with badges like allergy-friendly options.
The app is free to download and use and utilizes the smartphone’s live location to notify you about more candies!
Halloween Word Search Games
And now something for introverts who are not into candies and welcome Halloween nights only for the cozy beds, silence, and light games: Halloween Word Search.
From children to adults, these word search games don’t let anybody get bored on the spooky night where you can’t really close your eyes to sleep.
Over To You
The cost of developing these Halloween and other seasonal apps is relatively low than advanced applications. Still, they yield material amounts of profit during seasonal ups.
What makes these apps all the more trending and thrilling is the use of emerging technologies like AI-based image recognition and AR & VR simulations.
While these technologies are already primed for the future and attracting exponential growth in almost every industrial domain, their fusion with the entertainment industry can be the next big hit!
For most users, these Halloween apps mean gruesome ghouls and undead pictures.
On the other hand, the appreneurs who invested in these Halloween apps are actually enjoying candies (pun intended) in terms of app revenue that shoots up during the Halloween season.
As most users turn to these photo editing and scary game apps, the visitor count dramatically increases and allows these appreneurs to capitalize on the frightening fantasies.
For appreneurs, this is probably the best time to get into mobile app development and witness their Halloween app in the trending list in the coming year.
And why only Halloween when we have Christmas, New Year, and Easter around the corner too?
