[prMac.com] San Diego, California - Announcing that Koinonia Labs, the developer of Halloween Trick-n-Treat, has just released the latest update for iPhone 4/ 4S, iPod touch and iPad users. This release comes just in time for users to have fun pulling playful Halloween pranks on their friends and family. Halloween Trick-n-Treat 1.1 is a whimsical photo gag app that uses the iPhone's forward and rear facing cameras to trick the user into taking their own picture, but that's only where the fun begins!
The would-be photographer aims the device at their intended subject and clicks the shutter, but they're in for a big surprise. The app switches from the iPhone's rear facing camera to the forward facing camera, and snaps a photo of the surprised user instead of their subject.
Halloween Trick-n-Treat 1.1 features include:
* Supports Push notifications
* Supports Facebook connect
* In-app purchases
* Playful Halloween templates to dress up photos
Getting the user to take their own picture is the trick, and the treat comes in the form of 5 playful Halloween-themed templates to dress up the photos. Users can frame their new photos inside of such familiar Halloween icons as the Grim Reaper, a black cat, a classic jack-o-lantern or a scary skeleton. The app supports push notifications and Facebook Connect, so users can post up their Halloween pics for the world to see, or send them to their friends.
When asked what his inspiration was for this new app, developer Egbert Oostburg replied: "The idea came while my youngest son was taking funny pictures of himself with the forward facing camera. As a proud dad who is always taking pictures of my family (four kids under the age of 11), I noticed that there weren't many pictures of me since I was the one consistently behind the Nikon or Flip camera. How cool would it be to get a candid shot of a person taking MY picture?!" The result was a fun and easy to use app that will keep users smiling all the way through the Halloween season.
* iPhone4, 4S, iPod touch and iPad2
* Requires iPhone OS 4.3 or later
* Footprint 6.0 MB MB
