Wye Valley, United Kingdom – Electric Pocket has released SpookyTones 1.0, a Halloween version of its MailTones app. SpookyTones gives iPhone users a collection of distinctive Halloween email alert sounds. Rather than the bland default email alert tone, iPhone users can now pick a new email tone from the scary tones included in SpookyTones. From cackles to thumps and bumps, SpookyTones will let you know when you’ve got mail and who it’s from.
Not only can you set special SpookyTones for your most gruesome contacts, you can set your enemies to silent so you never are bothered with alerts when you get emails from them. As well as playing grizzly new email tones, SpookyTones can lurch out and show you a “push alert” on your iPhone, revealing the sender and subject of your new email message – so you know instantly whether you need to launch Mail and read the message, or if it can wait until daylight dawns.
