Spooksfinder ($ .99) by nSpire Studios
Available on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
Chances are you already know how you’re going to honor paganism this Halloween weekend, but if you don’t then Spooksfinder might be able to help! The idea here is to give you a birdseye view of all the Halloween festivities going down in your area, and if you’re hosting something yourself then you can add it to the map.
Spooksfinder seems good at finding community events so it (probably) won’t direct you to any sorority costume parties but who knows what you’ll find out there.
The app allows you to search by city name or zip code, and it also provides details like address, phone number, and website when possible. If you try to visit a website through Spooksfinder, though, be prepared to manually correct the URL! As of now you have to remove an extra “http//” from the front of the URL.
Overall this app isn’t bad, but the results feel a bit limited. Still, if you’re not sure how to entertain the family on Halloween, it might be worth a gamble.
