— -- Before the ghosts, goblins and witches hit the streets for some trick or treating action on Halloween, check out these five free apps that will help make it a night to remember.

Track N Treat

Parents with kids who are old enough to venture out trick or treating with friends can use Track n Treat to follow their child's location on a map. The downside: With your trick or treater running the app on their phone, it will be a battery drain, so make sure their smartphone is adequately charged before the fun begins. Track n Treat can be downloaded here for iOS users.
