Try-It-Out Tuesday: Trick or Tracker

As you get ready to send out your little ghoul or goblin this Halloween, we wanted to check out the Trick or Tracker app to see if it could help parents keep their kids safe.

It uses GPS to track your child's location, and says it can point your child in the direction of home if he or she gets lost.

We had several issues with it. First, you and your child both have to have smartphones. For full use, both should be Androids, though the app says the parent's phone can be any other type of smartphone.

The good news: it worked, but loading it was a bit of a hassle, and it costs $4.99.

This was an unscientific test with unscientific results.
