Amazon’s free app today is an entertainment app only. Ghost Radar uses the phones sensors to measure the electric magnetic fields around you. It features a radar image that shows you different color dots on the screen that represent possible nearby ghosts. Every so often it will give you a word. Some of them are random and others have made the hair on my arms stand up.
I downloaded it this morning around 2am, and it was a little creepy hearing words like “coming” and “attack” in the total dark. I’ve been playing with it more this morning and it doesn’t seem to have the same creepy effect as it does in the dark.
Even though this is for entertainment purposes only, it is defiantly an app that you could (and should) trick your friends with Halloween right around the corner. Especially if you have one of those easy to scare friends. Cause everyone knows scaring people is what Halloween is all about. (oh and candy too)
Check out these screen shots to see the look of the app.
If you’re not using the App Store, you can grab the download here by entering your email address or phone number in the upper right hand corner for a download link. Be sure to have the “unknown sources” box checked off under Settings—>Applications on your Android device.
You can also find Ghost Radar here. For an app that will usually run you $0.99, it is worth the money for a good laugh and maybe it will make your hair rise too. Today would be even better to get it while it is free.
