Over the past two years we have tested and used various paranormal apps and although we had our doubts regarding the overall effectiveness of these apps, we have come across a few that work. Ghost Hunting Apps have not only made it more affordable to ghost hunt but also makes the investigation easier in terms of the amount of equipment that you have to physically carry on an investigation.
Fake Paranormal Ghost Hunting Apps
If your looking to uncover real paranormal activity by using apps on your phone you should be aware that many of the so called ghost hunting apps are fake that are sold on the apple itunes store. Some of the fake apps to be aware of GB-Rift, Ghost Radar, Vocibus, and all of Steve Huff Apps. Researchers have found that these fake paranormal apps use pre-loaded sound banks from internet paranormal radio stations to create creepy but fake effects.
Best Ghost Hunting Apps
A paranormal app worthy of mention is Digital Dowsings’ ” iOvilius”- Designed by Digital Dowsing, its big brother the Ovilius has been used on numerous TV shows such as Ghost Adventures, and Paranormal State. The works the same as the Ovilius however it is much cheaper. For those that aren’t familiar with how the Ovilius works it, the app assigns a word based upon emf changes around the app. I actually prefer to use the app rather than the Ovilus because the phone speaker is much louder, and the app has more options such as being able to email logs from the sessions.

Best Cam/Audio App – Digital Dowsings’ MagCAM -Also designed by Digital Dowsing, the app monitors emf fields around the phone and when a change is detected it snaps a photo using the phones camera. The devices interface is pretty intuitive and easy to use, the only down side is that the app consumes the life of the phone like no other which makes it hard to run at a location overnight. We used it at the Sallie House and caught some pretty interesting things over nothing was conclusive.
