Goth? There’s an App for That

July 21st, 2011 by Cobwebs

Demon CaseI recently ran across an EMF Detector app which purports to detect the same “ghostly” energies that paranormal investigators look for, and wondered what other smartphone apps might be available for the gothier amongst us. As it turns out, there’s a bunch of ’em.

There are several other flavors of EMF apps, including iEMF (which seems to have a more detailed readout), EMF Meter + (appears to be aimed more at scientists than ghost hunters), and Paranormal State EMF Reader (associated with A&E’s Paranormal State program ; I don’t know how much useful data it collects but the interface is well-suited to costume parties).

Other ghost-hunting tools include:

Ghost Recorder – Claims to record ghostly sounds beyond the range of human hearing.

Paranormal Recorder – Another EVP recorder, this one triggered by unusual EMF readings.

iOvilus – The description of this recorder is sort of vague, but it appears to function(?) on the theory that external forces can cause changes to the phone’s sensors,

Ghost Words – An EVP recorder that is triggered by motion or infrared.

Ghost Radar – Offers a variety of sensors (EMF, vibrations, sounds, etc.) and some interesting management capabilities.

Ghost Hunter – Another multi-function ghost hunting toolkit.

Ghost Detector Pro – Claims to use the phone’s environmental sensors to track ghosts on a radar-like screen. I like that the tagline is, “Protect yourself from the ghosts in 2011!”
