Hi again everyone,

Hallow Screams Entertainment creates pre-done haunt CD's for your attraction and also custom does Android Apps for Android based phones.

I'm giving away two custom built haunt Apps ($150 value) and a backyard haunt app (with a $75 value) for those interested. It's super easy to enter too. To qualify, send me an email with why should get the free app for your haunt. Winners will be selected Friday May 31st 2013 and I will begin contacting those who won at that time to begin design work on the app. If no one wins, I will push the deadline date out another week until a winner is selected. Why am I doing this? Because I'm trying to make a name for myself and show how well my products are. I'm trying to earn your business is the bottom line. The only catch on the free app is I'm going to place my own branding to who made it within the app itself to help tell guests where it came from. This will help me out a lot. You can remove it for a small price if you want it without the branding by myself. If the branding bothers you, please do not enter the contest.

Below you can find some of my already produced apps on the Google Play store that are free to download and try out. The first 6 apps here are sound engine apps, meaning, they play and loop sounds over and over like a CD. Home haunters can use these to their advantage by using their phone as a looping audio unit if they don't have a sound system available.







Ready for some 3D?? Check out the next app... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hallowscreams.hsphoneappbasic2

This link above will take you to my 3D app. Get your chromadepth glasses ready for this one. This is one way we can also bring your app to life for a small fee. Takes a lot of work to get these type of apps just right. Prices start at just $150 for these apps. This first draft was mainly an experiment to see if such a 3d thing could be done, and yes, it can. I'm still working on the 3D version during my free time always trying to improve it more.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hallowscreams.hsphoneappbasic Is our basic app that don't keep the sound in your face all the time. One shot and it's done so you can focus on other things about the event other then the music...

Also note, keep your app on auto update so when a newer version comes out, you will always get it to your phone as soon as we release it.

Hallow Screams Haunt Engine Sampler: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hallowscreams.asylum2013

Is a complete sample app that walks you through the app and what kind of buttons we can place in the app. Keep in mind, about 6 tabs makes for the best app so you can still offer other great info without the tabs being boxed together. This layout is what option I'm giving two away of plus the backyard haunt app.I've been programming for about 4 years now with Android and am always improving my apps in some way. Please take a look at the apps if you have an Android phone and let me know what you think. I can also do custom versions of any app I list here if you need something totally unique. Send your emails to me at dlstorminc@yahoo.com or post questions here and I will try to answer them as fast as I can.

Thanks for your time guys, looking forward to working with some of you in the future.

BTW, you can expect to see my products (App design and custom audio CD) at the next couple years MHC so I hope to see you there.

Be safe!

If anyone is interested, I just finished new versions of the sample apps that you can use as a guide to see if my products are what you need. I write my software apps in Java and C++ and have created these two sample apps for you to check out to see some of my work if anyone is interested or thinking of buying an app from me.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hallowscreams.asylum2013 is the first one using the new Haunt Engine I created.

The next one is of a Indiana based haunt called Indy Scream Park. I made a fan based example to show off what I can do with your art work. That app is located here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hallowscreams.indyscream and is free.

Both these apps should give you a real world idea of what to expect with my haunt based apps. If you want a app created, it usually takes me about 6-8 hours to build a complete version and upload it to Google Play store using my pre-done templet to work from. I am also working on adding google maps and youtube to my app to where users can search haunt based videos in side my app and get location directions to the haunt I custom build the app for. These features are in the works as of now. If you have questions, please drop me a line here or at my email dlstorminc@yahoo.com Thanks for checking me out...

We already have one pro haunt down on the list for our free App contest from right here in the Indianapolis, IN area actually. We have one more pro haunt app left and one backyard haunt whoever is interested in a free branded App. Thank you to everyone who has wrote me. Thank you for the interest. Currently, the Map section of the App and the Youtube player are both under design to make them work flawlessly within the app. Some questions I've been getting also includes:

Do you offer other designs other then tab selections?

Yes we do actually. There are two designs available for the app design, Tab and Grid modes. Tab version is more popular. Grid version allows you to have 9-12 fields (buttons) to select from. The Grid is harder to create then the Tab versions. We offer both though, and the Grid is $250 where as the Tab version is $150 due to the deeper complexities of a grid system. We recommend the Tab system if your a first year haunt or do not have that much content.

Will you come photo shoot my haunted house and do a video of it in-app? Is that possible?

It sure is. this is a feature we just finished and are in testing of. We can use your own video or we come do a video for you of your haunt. the Intro Video can not exceed 5-6 seconds so you have to have your logo and whatever your going to show in that window in the video. We can add in small 2-3 minute videos inside the app after the client enters the app if you like. These fees are extra from the App fee, but we can do the services if you want it done, that is not a problem.

Can you build a custom soundtrack for the App?

We sure can do that too. Since we have over 10 years as sound designers in the gaming industry, we can pretty much create you any kind of sound you need for your app. Custom or pre-designed from our huge library. Custom work requires at least 2-3 weeks for the piece where as the predone pieces are ready to use now. Predone audio and Custom audio both require a special fee and license to use and there is a yearly fee to use our library of sounds or music for your app.

If anyone has more questions please drop me a line at dlstorminc@yahoo.com thanks for reading!
