Happy Halloween! Get into the All Hallow’s Eve spirit with today’s Fresh iPhone Apps. Halloween Soundlab lets you play Halloween-themed sounds on a loop, and Drunk Text Savior will help you avoid sending texts you shouldn’t if you head out to a Halloween party. Zombieville USA 2 has you blasting zombies, perfect for Halloween, and Flick Tennis: College Wars has some great touch mechanics and fast-paced tennis action.

Halloween Soundlab (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Augment your Halloween experience with Halloween Soundlab, an app filled with 13 sounds you can play to create a custom soundtrack of spooky sounds. You can play sounds like a cackling witch, a heartbeat, the moaning of zombies and others to generate a spooky atmosphere.

Soundlab lets you mix any number of the sounds together to create something unique to your Halloween. All the sounds are built to be loops as well, so you can set the app to play the sounds you like and use them as part of your Halloween decorations.

Drunk Text Savior (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

There’s another night of Halloween revelry to be had, and if you’re lucky enough to be headed out to a party on a Monday night, you might have use of Drunk Text Savior. The app vets your text messages for excessive swearing and typos to help you avoid sending messages you shouldn’t when you’ve had a little too much to drink.

Drunk Text Savior offers other helpful functions, too. The app will read back your texts as you’ve typed them, to help you catch any weird Autocorrect words that have crept into your messages. Recipients’ photos are displayed so you can avoid texting the wrong person, and the app even lets you put in information about the person who will serve as your designated driver, allowing you to quickly send a pre-set text to the person when you’re in need of their services.

Zombieville USA 2 (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

The sequel to another zombie shooter can help get into the horrific Halloween spirit, with lots of flesh-eating, cartoonish undead to blast with a bunch of cool weapons. In each level of Zombieville USA 2, you’re stuck in a small area where you’ll have to defend yourself from zombies with items like shotguns, pistols and baseball bats to knock back zombies while you collect ammo and money. After a timer runs out, then it’s time to run for a waiting rescue helicopter to escape with your life.

Between each Zombieville USA 2 level, you’ll have an opportunity spend your money to unlock or upgrade new weapons and abilities to help you better survive. The game also includes cooperative multiplayer you can play over a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection, so you can get a friend in on the action as well, and Game Center support provides leaderboards and achievements.

Flick Tennis: College Wars (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Fight your way through 11 episodes of tennis games in a war to be the best tennis player in college in Flick Tennis: College Wars. As you might guess, the game is played by flicking the screen to show your player where to send his shots – a flick to the left sends the ball left, and flicking up or down, or with one finger or two, will give you different kinds of shots.

Flick Tennis includes something like 35 pages of comics to portray its in-game storyline, and includes Game Center support to give you achievements and leaderboards. It also includes a doubles mode and a head-to-head multiplayer mode that lets you play against your friends.
