The last quarter of the year is upon us, and with it comes the festive season, which is fast approaching. Halloween marks the beginning of candy, cookies, and festive cheer. Spread some spooky wallpapers to your friends and spook yourself using the Halloween Wallpapers √ Pro app available for your iPhone or iPad.
This app is located in the Lifestyle section of the App Store, and it is available for purchase for the hefty price of $4.99. The holiday season surely brings out the shopping addict in all of us, so is it time to loosen the purse strings for an app like this one? Let's find out!
The Halloween Wallpapers √ Pro app will take up only 19.3 MB of data on your iOS device, yet it manages to boast a collection of more than 10,000 wallpapers! Having reviewed a handful of wallpaper apps in the past, I am under the impression that most of the wallpaper apps that contain more than a few hundred wallpapers, unless constantly updated, are fairly useless due to repeated designs and unoriginal material.
The developers of this app, however, claim that each of the wallpapers included in the app have been picked up from various open-source pages, so copyright law is not impeached. However, this also begs the question of why this app has such an extravagant price tag attached to it!
I have to hand it to the developers regarding the functionality of this app. It loads really quickly and is highly responsive to swiping among various wallpapers as well as the pinch-to-zoom functions. The interface is also beautiful and modern-looking which definitely adds points to the user experience as you browse through and look for a suitable wallpaper.
Wallpapers are categorized into various sections to ensure that users can find what they are looking for from the gargantuan collection contained within the app. Search functions are also available along with the ability to save a bunch of wallpapers to a favorites list for easy retrieval.

This app may be too pricey for what it delivers, as there are plenty of free apps that enable you to not only have Halloween wallpapers but also create your own Halloween cards using frames.
Easy sharing options
Although there is a vast collection of high-quality wallpapers in Halloween Wallpapers √ Pro, it's still had to justify paying almost $5 for it, especially considering that the material is not original. If you feel like you can spare some money and really want this app, then go ahead and get it on your iPhone or iPad, but I personally cannot imagine why one would spend money on this when there are so many free apps with a similar theme available on the App Store.
