If you’re the type of person who likes to look like a complete fool for Halloween, rather than attempt to look remotely scary, then we have the perfect costumes for you: those crazy little critters from Angry Birds.
Halloween isn’t very far off — it’s tomorrow. So here’s a last-minute Halloween themed iOS app that runs on the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. It can turn your next scary party into a real spooktacular or you can use it to enhance the fun while passing out loads of candy to all the little ghosts and goblins that visit.
The app offers 50 sounds that you can use to startle just about anyone on Halloween or realistically anytime you feel like it. All you have to do is plug your iOS device into your stereo or some other amplified speakers, turn up the volume (important for the best scare), and start playing with the buttons on the apps sound board.
The apps sounds can be played manually, via auto-play, or just give your iOS device a good shake and you’ll hear some pretty scary stuff right away.
Halloween, with its legions of black-clad kids running around and darting out into the street, introduces its own variety of driving perils. So in addition to warning other users of speed traps and red-light cameras, Trapster users can now mark two new location types on its map this Halloween: haunted houses and trick-or-treat zones.
The free app works through crowdsourcing, which means any registered user can add markers which then become viewable to other Trapster users; and if users find a marker that’s inaccurate (say, if some user tagged their in-laws place as a haunted house), it can be removed with enough votes against it. Now if only the had a marker for houses with the best candy…

This might be the ultimate nightmare Halloween mask in Redmond, Wa. Regular Cult visitors will no doubt have seen it alongside ads for CultofMac Editor Leander Kahney’s book, Inside Steve’s Brain. The illustration was crafted by graphic designer Dan Draper, who also rendered the uncannily close image of the new MacBook Air for our scoop on the MBA’s details.
A life-size image suitable for plastering over an actual face can be found at Draper’s flickr page. Heads up! Trick or iPod Shuffle!
It doesn’t do much — no fancy vocal wizardry, just adjusts the pitch of the user’s voice up or down — but Devil Voice looks like the first instance of a real-time voice-changing app, without the need to record a user’s voice first before playback — though it can, if desired.
The app is a dollar, and comes out just in time for Halloween; see our forthcoming Halloween Guide for examples on how to duct tape it and attached speakers into a Darth Vader mask and whatnot.
