    100 Horror Stories, Sounds, and Scares for iPhone – Very fun and unique. Classic horror stories (Dracula, Frankentstein, etc) Actually creepy sounds. They also have the ‘pranks’ some you can control, some you won’t know they’re coming. Perfect for Halloween!

    Here’s a free iPhone app that just came out earlier this week: It’s called Decoretta Lite. You can email e-Greeting Cards to friends and family from your iPhone. The messages are animated if you view them on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. It’s great because the app updates after every holiday so you can use it all year round to send friendly messages or party invitations. Once Halloween is over, the app will be Thanksgiving themed!
