Ghost Radar

The "Entertainment Purposes Only" is just to discourage all paranormal investigations with the app. I recommend this app to all beginner ghost hunters.

It's not real. But have fun! It might make a slow evening kind of spooky.

You know, the whole history of ghost photography is riddled with fakes. I used to teach photography to high school kids, and we made pinhole cameras. By "made" I mean we glued pieces of wood and cardboard together to make a light tight box with a pinhole. The cameras used photo paper, so the exposures for the negative were long, like maybe a minute or more. FIRST thing my students thought of to do, almost invariably, was to fake a ghost. EASY to do. And, their friends would be fooled because the cameras were so crude that no one believed they could even take pictures, let alone fake a ghost.

But Arthur Conan Doyle was fooled as well, so....

LOL...Conan Doyle got well taken in by the fairies rather took his credibility away when it came to the paranormal.
As far as these apps go well anything that looks too good to be true often is!! but to use these to con money out of people is just immoral. Bit of fun fine but anything else.....

But they claim to be able to get ghosts children to play with small toys placed on the screen of their android. Well you will see here its the vibration in the android that causes the movement. I used a couple cough drops. I also explained this on their youtube site but my response was removed. Its obvious they do not want to be exposed. They then call the place haunted and will cleanse it for a price.

This is just plain wrong. I would have no problem exposing a group for its fraud should I run into one.

For entertainment purposes only...

Unfortunately, no matter how genuine an app was intended to be. Makers MUST put that disclaimer on there for legal reasons. It's almost like the vitamin and herb industry where they must say "not intended to treat or cure any disease"... Which in fact is precisely why you take them in the first place...

I've always been on the fence. Because there are times when the blips on the screens of radar apps coincide with other evidence such as anomaly photos, EMF spikes, EVP's and more.

Correlation does not equal causation. And the reason the entertainment disclaimer is put on there is very simple...because it IS entertainment. It is not meant to be taken seriously or to be used as evidence. Trust me when it is...anyone truly serious about paranormal research is either offended or laughing.

As I have said test your ghost radar on the expressway, it acts exactly the same. See a problem? Its a toy app, nothing more. The sad part is people who claim to investigate the paranormal are so gullible they fall for it.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

Biggest problem is that youngsters like charmybee14 are now scaring themselves silly because of this app, maybe an age minimum for purchasing should be applied? I know that if my daughter had bought it when she was younger I'd have binned it..

Here is the problem, we have paranormal teams who use these apps, and other snake oil devices like the shack hack and ovilus or even worse flash light communication or their k2 and think its a ghost. They take pictures outside in the winter and capture breath and tell everyone its the devil himself. Now when we look deeper we see issues much deeper then blind belief. Some of these people are dangerous as proven when you pull information on them. You might be shocked at all the paranormal teams with rap sheets with many offenses. Yet so many are willing to blindly trust them. See a problem? I do

Lets look at how many haven't a clue how equipment even works, like a video camera or your point and shoot. Its sad what we see them present as paranormal.
