With Halloween just around the corner, it is time to get spooky and spice up your app.

Halloween has been a popular holiday in the United States for a long time and is now also starting to cross over to other countries.

Halloween spending in the US is expected to be around 10 billion dollars for this year and in the UK it has been growing over the past few years, with consumers spending 477 million pounds on Halloween-related goods in 2019.

Most of that spending goes towards Halloween-themes candy, costumes, and decor, but that doesn’t mean you as a business owner can’t profit from the popularity of this holiday. 

Halloween, like Christmas and other big holidays, is a perfect opportunity to add some themed elements to your app. Don’t just add Halloween elements into the app, but also consider giving the app icon a Halloween look. Just a small change to your app icon can help it stand out on mobile devices and trigger users to open it and see what else is new.

Don’t limit yourself to only changing your app for Halloween. You can (and should) also launch Halloween-specific offers, content, and promotions. And Halloween-themed content that you share through social media or email can also be adapted for your mobile app.
