'Tis the season where pumpkins are carved up, kids and adults alike begin hunting for the perfect costume and bags of candy begin to fly off store shelves. In the spirit of the Halloween season, this week's roundup will focus on apps and game that give our Windows Phone a ghostly flavor.
We did a keyword search in the Windows Phone Store for Halloween and grabbed a few of the higher rated apps and games from the search results. We aren't including Zombie games because they are more of a year round genre. We do have a few games that have been recently updated with a Halloween theme as well as a few apps that can help your Windows Phone get into the holiday spirit.
Fancred is a social network that is oriented toward sports fans. Along with that comes a host of features intended to help people enjoy sports more and find like-minded fans. It’s free to use in the Google Play Store.
Here’s how the app works. You sign up for an account like any other social network. From there you pretty much participate as though you were in any other social network except instead of posting pictures of food or selfies from the bathroom mirror, you post about sports things. The app contains 2700+ sports teams tags which covers a myriad of teams in a number of countries.
You can post images, check in at stadiums and other sporting events, post updates, and pretty much everything you can do in a normal social media setting. The major difference being that people here actually want to hear about that trade you made in your fantasy league. Fancred also employs a ranking system (1-100) that shows other people how much you engage in the app and with other people. It seems to work well enough.
