Make Your Own Bumps In the Night With iSoundGrid Halloween For iPad



Today is Halloween. 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.

I discovered this Halloween app treat last year and I had a blast with it then and I will later tonight. It is worth a look if you haven’t seen it.

The app offers 50 sounds that you can use to startle just about anyone on Halloween or any time 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.

I used some attached battery operated speakers with this app and my iPad last year and it set the mood. The kids coming to our door left amazed and scared, but otherwise unscathed and loaded up with candy before their next door-to-door stop. Parents escorting the kids got a kick out of it, too. Overall, everyone had a great Halloween. I’ll be using this app every year.

The iPad version of this app costs only $1.99 (iTunes link) and the iPhone and iPod touch version is free (iTunes link).
