With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about decorating your Android device with some spooky app icons. That’s why we’ve rounded up a list of the best Halloween-themed icon packs and wallpaper apps for your phone.
Some of them cost a bit to download, but they’re worth it for the fun. These spooky icon packs are sure to make your Android smartphone look just like a pumpkin this Halloween!
Trick or Treat Icons
Whether you’re planning to hand out candy or host a haunted house, these Halloween app icons will give your digital designs the scare factor. They’ll also stand out from the pack – and maybe help trick or treaters find your home.
One cool tech app is TREAT TOWN, which helps families plan their trick-or-treat routes by allowing them to mark which homes will be passing out sweet treats and offering allergy-friendly goodies. The app is a collaboration between Mars Wrigley and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and features a variety of Halloween-related widgets such as an interactive map of trick-or-treating routes for your area and a handy dandy scavenger hunt to track down all those coveted chocolate-coated pumpkin seeds. For those who have pets, it even has a unique pet-friendly icon. In fact, it has more than 75% of Nextdoor users participating in some sort of animal-themed activity this October. And if that wasn’t enough, it was the first of its kind.
Colored Pumpkin Icons
Colored pumpkins have become a symbol for many different causes and are often used as a means to promote community outreach. With social media bringing these messages to light, they can often jumpstart conversations about issues that have been overlooked around the holiday season.
Purple and Teal pumpkins are typically associated with promoting awareness for health conditions. For example, if you see a purple pumpkin at a home, it could be an indication that someone in the household has epilepsy or knows how to respond when they do have seizures. Pink pumpkins are also in support of breast cancer awareness.
Similarly, blue pumpkins are a symbol of autism awareness. Throughout 2018, a number of social media posts encouraged Autistic people to carry blue pumpkin buckets in hopes that it would raise awareness about the challenges that these children face on Halloween. Some have resisted the trend, however, because they feel that asking kids with autism to disclose their condition on Halloween is unhelpful and antithetical to the festive spirit of the holiday.
Pumpkin Emoji Icons
Pumpkins are a popular food during autumn and jack-o’-lanterns are a symbol of Halloween. They’re often carved into faces, and illuminated with a candle inside.
The emoji of the jack-o’-lantern is part of Unicode 6.0 and first appeared in 2010. This icon depicts an orange pumpkin with holes for its eyes, nose, and mouth.
It is commonly used as a symbol of Halloween and is also a term of endearment. It is the perfect emoji to add to any message that celebrates the holiday.
Another spooky emoji that you might want to use is the ghost emoji. This emoji can be used to convey a range of emotions, including sadness, fright, and anger.
If you’re looking for something more animated, consider the grinning squashes that are available on Google, Apple, Samsung, and Skype. These emojis look similar to those on promotional posters for Disney’s “Halloweentown” movie, but with more detail.
Pumpkins with Faces
Halloween app icons are all the rage and it is no secret that developers love to spruce up their apps for this annual holiday. While dressing up your icons for the season can make them stand out, it can also get a little overwhelming to keep track of all the changes you’ve made. So, what’s a good way to stay on top of your game?
The best way to do that is to design a few app icon variations with varying levels of detail. You’ll want to include a mix of textured, shiny, and matte finishes. Using these types of materials will give you a more consistent and attractive look for your app.
If you’re looking for the ultimate app icon, a free, downloadable vector illustration might be the best bet. A set of 3 high resolution, scalable icons is included in the pack, so you can choose to use one or all for maximum impact.
