The SpookyPic App is one of hundreds of apps for scary, Halloween-related entertainment. According to, SpookyPic was one of the 30 spooky apps considered for the Android. Customers reviews this app as  four stars out of 48 ratings.

Like Instagram and other photo-manipulation programs, SpookyPic contains many special effects and filters with dark twists that allow its user to utilize over 140 gruesome appearances. It also has an exporting function that allows users to upload photos to albums, contacts, emails and social media websites like Twitter and Facebook. It’s also worth saying that while the “lite” version of the program is free, the user must purchase the full version for 99 cents in order to get more visual effects.

Despite its four-star rating and some of its features, I didn’t like the app after trying it out. In fact, it’s not interesting or entertaining when it comes to taking photos and even though the filters are supposed to be scary, they aren’t really scary at all and can easily be trumped by many of the better filters Instagram has for its users. I would not recommend this app to others if they are looking for high-quality effects in the spirit of the Halloween holiday.

The SpookyPic app is compatible with iPhones and iPads, and it is available through Apple’s app store. It requires iOS 4.0 or later, and it was last updated on April 2011.
