"After creating our first #1 Paid Book App, the multi-genre 301 Short Stories, we realized that there was a desire for an app that featured a large collection of great horror stories. While watching a horror movie late one night, I realized the sounds of the movie were sometimes the scariest parts...100 Horror Stories, Sounds, And Scares came to life. Once the iPad came out, of course we decided to build 100 Horror Stories, Sounds, And Scares for iPad Plus, I love Halloween and wanted to do an app that was cool for Halloween.
