    Get a closer look at Bubble Witch Saga 2 in the video above.

    There’s nothing that says “Halloween” like a spooky witch, so playing a few rounds of Bubble Witch Saga is a great way to get into the spirit of things this Halloween season. There are two installments in this franchise. Bubble Witch Saga has a slightly creepier vibe, while Bubble Witch Saga 2 has a slightly cuter vibe (and a slightly higher rating than the original on Google Play.) There’s something so relaxing about popping bubbles after a long day at work. There’s a reason millions of people around the globe have played the two Bubble Witch games.

    Learn how this GPS app works in the video above.

    Family Locator is a GPS tracking app from Sygic. This app lets you keep tabs on your kids, and can help you locate them if they are lost. This is a great app for concerned parents to use for tracking their kids’ first, solo trick-or-treating excursion. Halloween can be a scary night, but this app can give both you and your children some much-needed peace of mind.

    You can also get alerts if your child goes someplace they aren’t supposed to go, and get a message when your kid arrives safely at their destination. If you are a concerned parent, this app is ideal of keeping track of young children. However, teenagers may feel like they are being “spied on” if you use this app to track them.
