Trick or tweet! Your Halloween planning gets a high-tech twist with your Smartphone.

Let little ones participate in the pumpkin carving process, minus the mess, and the danger. The carve it app for iPhone and iPad lets kids of all ages put a happy, scary, or sneaky smirk on a pumpkin, and even light it up.

The pumpkin 3d lite app for iPhone and iPad takes it a few steps further, letting creative fans add different faces, hats and Halloween garb, even ghosts and music for a spookier mood.

Planning a big bash? The Halloween planner app for android has your checklist covered, with reminders about everything from shopping for trick-or-treaters, to your cobweb and spider decorations.

If you're undecided on what you and the kids should wear, the Halloween costumes fashion fun app lets you scroll through hundreds of suggestions and order them directly from your mobile device.

And when the kids are dressed up and ready to head out, keep tabs on them using the trick or tracker app for android. The GPS function also alerts parents if kids go beyond designated boundaries in the neighborhood, as long as kids have their Smartphones on them.
