If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, if there’s something weird and it don’t look good, who ya gonna call — on your smartphone?When modern technology combines with good old-fashioned ghostbusting, the result is a series of paranormal phone apps that might help tech-savvy ghost hunters detect other-worldly presences without the need for costly equipment.

A number of spirit-seeking cellphone apps have hit the market in the past few years, including EVP Analyzer, which records sounds believed by some to be voices from the beyond, Paranormal State EMF Detector, which scans electromagnetic fields for alleged spirits or ghosts and Ghost Radar, a radar-influenced app said to use electromagnetic fields, vibrations and sounds to point users toward apparitions.

“I really like those different paranormal television shows where all these ghost investigators carry around expensive electromagnetic field (EMF) detectors and various other tools,” Ghost Radar designer Jack Jones told The Huffington Post.

We use our iPhones, Blackberries and Androids mainly to communicate — by calling, emailing and texting (and sometimes surfing the Web). But these ubiquitous devices are also loaded with tons of high-tech extras, like advanced digital cameras, GPS features and accelerometers that can do everything from replacing your tools to checking your glucose levels.

Why can’t they also search for ghosts?

“When I got into mobile phone application development, there were no paranormal applications out there, so I created Ghost Radar and mine was the first — nobody had ever done anything like that,” Jones said.

If the spirit moves you to download Ghost Radar, the app will purportedly scan your surroundings and establish a baseline of ambient noise, vibration and other factors. Then it waits for something to happen.

“The Ghost Radar looks at readings that the phone can detect, based on the GPS or the FM receiver that’s built into all these phones — if there’s any fluctuation of the baseline, it’s hoped that there’s a paranormal entity out there that can manipulate the sensors on the phone so that it could somehow communicate. That was my intent,” Jones said.
