App Review: Ghost Observer – See the Unseen

There are ghosts in your basement and ghouls in your closet. But they can not be seen by the naked eye and you can’t tell what specific type of apparitions are present just by the chills down your spine. The solution: Ghost Observer. This app is here to provide all of the information necessary to understand and to locate invisible, paranormal entities under your bed, in your basement, attic, garage, closet, or derelict treehouse.

The app uses the camera on your phone and detects spikes in Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) around you. On the bottom of the screen, a radar will show you where the ghost is relative to where you are standing or cowering, and arrows will direct you where to turn to see the ghost. A shape will become visible on the screen that is your phantom. An informational display of what kind of spirit it is (vengeful, friendly, etc.,), its age in years, and EMF level will show up on the right hand side. There is also the option to take a picture of the sighted phantom so you can scare your friends.

Ghost Observer is available for free for both iPhone and Android. There is an option to upgrade to the “pro” version with the ability to read communications from the ghosts for $1.99.

It is best to have a flashlight readily available.
