It’s that time again! Witches, ghouls, zombies, and monsters roam the land! On All Hallows Eve, these beings rise up across the land in search of one thing… CANDY! …And maybe a couple of fun apps for their iOS devices.
You know if there’s one thing we here at MacTrast like to do is help. We’re helpers. So, we’d like to share some of out favorite Halloween themed apps with you, our dear readers. We think of you as friends. Well, maybe not close friends, or a ghoul-friend…
Angry Birds Seasons (iPhone and iPad) – The latest edition of the constantly updated “Seasons” finds the pigs in their spookiest location yet: a haunted house! The Birds fight ghosts and ghouls to get their eggs back!

My personal favorite use for apps like this…)

The Walking Dead (iPhone and iPad) – Get the free first issue of the comic series based on the popular AMC TV show. A global epidemic has caused the dead to rise and feed on the living, and… Well, who doesn’t know what life with zombies is like?
From the app description: “In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never fired a shot and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living.”
Read the first issue of the comic series free, and if you like it, you can purchase more comics in the series via in-app purchase.
