Light the pumpkin, liven your costume, and dance it up! Lavishly live the festivities of Halloween out loud and find out the fabulous uses of smartphones on Halloween!
Fabulous Uses Of Smartphones For Halloween
The most important part of using your smartphone is having a reliable service. Today’s post is sponsored by my favorite and most reliable service Verizon Wireless. Reliable service when I need it most!
We live in the era of booming technology and the answer to help you in your quest to keep your kids safe on Halloween is right in the palm of your hand. Imagine that a smartphone can help you on the sweetest night and the most spooking night of the year.
Perhaps you want to be spooky as spooky can be, then you surely don’t want to talk, use that smartphone. What about ambiance music on your driveway for those trick-or-treaters? The smartphone is a dynamic tool to help you brew up the best of Halloween!
Work that smartphone like the tool it is and get twisted with the great ways you can stay in control of a night that is hauntingly creepy by basic standards!
LIGHT IT UP
Ready to travel with your kids from house to house and not micromanage? Use that flashlight on your phone so no need to carry an additional. Walk the streets and the sidewalks with easy strides lighting up the way for your little trick-or-treaters!
HALLOWEEN EATS & DRINKS
Google play offers a fabulous Halloween eats app, so you can prepare ghoulish like food for the troops to dig into before and after trick-or-treating. The beverages make cauldrons cackle with happiness and adults too (don’t drink and drive)
The old-fashioned ways of calling your neighbor down the street by landline to see if the kids had passed their house or not are totally gone, just text them! Keeps the looking silent and lets you keep on distributing the treats at your house. Our kids all have phones, and they have to have the phones with them so they can SnapChat & IG Story right? “As soon as you see MOM on your phone, check in with a quick text! image, or finger photo!”
THE SNAPCHAT GRID
They won’t go “ghost” this night, just follow along on their Snap Grid, you are not creeping you are being spookily smart! You are the parent that uses tech to your advantage not to creep- bwahhhh.
Consider tracking apps for the younger crew, so that you know where they are and when they are there. It is effortless contact, requires no texting on their part, and you get to follow their journey. One of the most popular tracking apps is Track & Treat. It is easy to download and easy to use, as you can see them a real-time map. Use your smartphone, computer, the app, a tablet, etc. Head on over and peruse your options.
Find My Kids — Footprints app is available on iOS only but a wonderful app for those of you that just need to know where the kids are. A Geofence is what helps to keep this App pumping. Real-time shares that offer the current location. Read more on their app.
PARTY AT OUR HOUSE
Having a party at your house may not qualify as a ‘safety’ app, but if you are having that party, then use an APP that is easy. I suggest the evite app to make invites easy, fast and deliverable through email! The safety in this app is that you are sending the invite to the parents and they know you!
STROBE LIGHT APP
Remember, every good Halloween needs good lighting and you can use your smartphone to strobe light the ambiance. Find a strobe light app that matches your gusto and away you go!
