Appy Halloween: Pokemon Go, Facebook, Google offer spooky treats
Even if you don't have a costume for Halloween, there are plenty of apps to get you in the spooky spirit.
Facebook is mimicking Snapchat Lenses.
And it added digital masks to its live video broadcast tool.
But you'll only be able to find Find it on the iPhone Facebook App.
Although, you may not see it right away, for some reason, not everyone has the feature.
It superimposes silly, and scary characters, on your face.
Facebook hopes this is gonna encourage more people to engage in its Live broadcast tool.
The masks will eventually be coming to the android Facebook app in the coming months.
In the meantime, there are stranger things to discover in Google's Allo messenger app.
And by stranger things, I mean the popular Netflix show that gave us all nightmares about the Upside down.
The Google Aloe app now has stickers which show references.
If your brave enough to go out tonight and face the Demigorgon, fire up the Pokemon Go app for a special Halloween themed game You'll see more spooky Pokemon pop-up and players can earn more candy during the special event which runs until November 1st.
Not only does each Pokemon come with six candies but the Professor will also give you an extra candy for trade-ins.
And if you're staying inside answer the door for trick or treaters.
With a creepy, creaking door sound effects app, WD40 the brand that keeps those hinges oiled, and squeak free has launched a haunted door app as a funny marketing stunt.
Google's having a little fun this Halloween.
By turning it's Google Doodle into a game.
With a little black cat named Momo.
That needs your help to stop the scary spirits.
From invading her magic school.
You score by vanquishing the doodle from five different levels of the school.
Perhaps the real scary part is when you realize you spend too much time at work playing a pointless doodle game.
That's it for this Halloween Edition of CNET update.
