Fun & atmospheric.

The jack-o-lantern carvings are attractive and creative. Nice flame effect. Propped up my plugged ipad and just let it run - great for a Halloween party or just to have on, kind of like a virtual fireplace. The only thing I didn't get; was mention of a "custom carving" feature which I didn't see how to access. Not that I would anyway as the many carvings that it comes with are really cool.

Best Jack O Lantern look .... except

This app is great if you are looking for a "real looking" Jack O Lantern for your iPad, these guys even have a version for your MAC so you can now have pumpkins all over your office or home. The iPad app has come really neat sound effects, and I am really pleased that I picked this up, but ....

For some reason I cannot get the custom carvings to work. I have a company logo that I would really like to have appear, but I have not been able to get it to work. I have tried every format of PNG I can make.

I will definitely come back and rate this 5 stars if an update comes out to fix this.
