Four smart rules to be safe trick-or-treating

It's finally Halloween! Time for your family to put on their costumes and go trick-or-treating! But before you head out the door you'll want to check out the two apps making trick-or-treating easier.

Nextdoor, the popular social networking service for neighborhoods, is bringing back their annual Treat Map. The map lets you see which homes in your neighborhood are giving out treats...just look for the candy corn icon. Homes marked with a teal pumpkin icon means your neighbor is passing out non-food treats.

"By providing non-food treats, neighbors can help create a safe, fun alternative for children with food allergies and other conditions for whom candy may present a problem," Nextdoor said on their website.

Want to be scared? Look for the haunted house icon because that means one of your neighbors is hosting a haunted house.

Another app to checkout before trick=or-treating is Halloween Candy Map by Current. This map lets you find which homes are giving out the best candy...based on reviews from other users.

"Halloween Candy Map allows user-submitted reports of where the good – and bad – candy is in their neighborhoods," according to Current.
