Iconosys unveils a new Smartphone app that enables responsible parents to know the exact whereabouts of their trick-or-treating kids without requiring them to follow alongside in the family car (risking the lives of others that may stray into their paths, as they are distracted by the task of diligently watching their children from the car window). 

Iconosys, Inc., has created TrickorTrackerso that parents can safely monitor their kids via their Smartphone, while their children are out and about gathering treats.  TrickorTracker is free of charge for Halloween (it does expire afterwards), or can be purchased for $9.99 thereafter for full lifetime coverage of family members.
