Smartphone apps help you keep track of your kids as they trick-or-treat.
At 12-years-old, Max Cutlip is ready to set out on his own for Halloween this year.
So what's a parent to do?
Max's mother, Mary Phillips, says she's taking to a milder and kinder form of Big Brother, or in this case, Big Mother, by tracking Max with a cell phone app.
It's called Trick or Tracker, a Halloween themed app for making sure you know where your kid is at all times without actually having to be there.
The catch: Max needs an Android phone, which will run you at least $100 with a contract, and then another $9.99 for the app after the halloween demo period expires.
While a specific Halloween application might certainly be festive, it's not entirely necessary.
There are a number of other GPS trackers currently available for all phones.
They just don't have a pumpkin on the front.
