3.Ghost Radar: CLASSIC
The Ghost Radar: CLASSIC app is developed by Spud Pickles and will help users get in touch with the spirit world, scanning for ghosts and other supernatural beings. The app analyzes energies in a user's surroundings and the "Ghost Radar attempts to detect paranormal activity by using various sensors on the device on which it is running."
"Like traditional paranormal detecting equipment, Ghost Radar has many sensors available to it on mobile devices. However, traditional paranormal equipment can be easily fooled when simple mundane bursts of normal energy occur. Ghost Radar sets itself apart by analyzing the readings from sensors giving indications only when interesting patterns in the readings have been made," states the app description.
The app can be used to communicate with the spirits, who talk through the device with word fragments. The readings are displayed via numeric, textual, and graphical readouts. However, it is up to the user to interpret the meaning of the words.
