Halloween apps

Looking to keep track of your children this Halloween? Well, there's an app for that.

There are two apps that can put parents at ease this Halloween.
The first app is called "Mama Bear"

This is how it works: get your whole family to download the app.  This app allows you to track your kids' whereabouts on a map that uses GPS. You can get alerts when they leave a designated area.
   
You can also be alerted when your kid posts a photo on Facebook or Instagram, if they  are in a car speeding, or if they're tagged in a post on social media.

This next app is one every parent will want .  It's called sex offender search.
Using your location, the app will show you on a map where all registered sex offenders live.
 
If you register with the app, it will  also notify you when a sex offender moves into your neighborhood.  It also pinpoints the local fire and police stations

Both these apps are free and you can download them on your iPhone or Android.
