For months now, reports of creepy clowns lurking, and generally creeping people out have been in the news. Some parents are concerned how this will play out come Hallowe'en night. Two enterprising fellas from Montreal, Canada have created an app for that.

It's called Clown Spotter. It's free and it's pretty simple to use. It uses your location to determine whether any creepy clowns have been reported in your area.

I opened the app and didn't see any warnings for the Quad Cities, even though I know of many clowns living here. *wink*

Give it a try. The app is available for both Android and iPhone.
