Ghost Radar ClassicTo understand what Ghost Radar Classic is all about, you first have to be curious whether paranormal experiences actually exist, what they are, or can they all be explained through scientific investigations. Ghost radar uses your cell phone to examine some of these phenomena.

What Exactly Is The Paranormal?


The definition of “paranormal phenomena” is anything that is classed as “beyond the normal” and generally includes events like clairvoyance and telekinesis,  not to mention seeing apparitions like ghosts or spirits, or anything else that cannot be explained through the scope of normal scientific explanations..

What Is Ghost Radar?

Ghost Radar Classic

Ghost Radar is an app that has been developed by Spud Pickles software and is available to be downloaded on the majority of new mobile phone platforms. The platforms that are supported are Apple products, Google Android, and Blackberry phones. These phones that allow downloadable apps are known as smartphones.

Ghost Radar is an entertainment application that has a slight twist of the supernatural.

How Does Ghost Radar Classic Work?

ghost reading

  • Ghost Radar is a free app that can be used on a variety of cell phones.


  • The technology behind it is that the components in the phone in conjunction with the app are able to detect the paranormal source.


  • It works like a detector that can find electromotive forces or “EMF” for short.


  • Apparently this app allows your phone to pick up intelligent energy and can use vibrations through your phone’s sensors to locate the presence of paranormal energy.

The app’s blurb also contains some written context containing some incredible statements about how this application works. Such claims are that it uses electromagnetic fields, vibrations, and sounds to detect ghosts and paranormal activity in and around the device.

Interpreting the Results

The screen on the cell phone will give readings that need to be deciphered as the sensors pick up the paranormal activity.

  • Red: Is a bad activity
  • Yellow: Is between
  • Green: Is good

The Cost
Ghost Radar Classic is available for free on the Apple, Android, and Blackberry Market app stores. This does mean that the developers sell advertisement space within the user interface that they use to create money, and so there will be scrolling adverts along the bottom and top of the screen during use.

Does Ghost Radar Work?

This is where the controversy is going to come in because there are so many variables. Such as:

  • Which phones are being used
  • What kind of paranormal activity is going on in the area
  • How sensitive is this activity to the components of the app

The Theory

Some have the theory that if two identical iPhones were used then the readings should be identical.

One fellow from YouTube did run a test using identical phones and in different areas but only came up with inconclusive results. So this test alone would not be enough to validate the authenticity.

Is It Easy To Use?

Unlike the expensive equipment where you need a lot of training just to understand how to use it, this app can be used by just about anyone.

If you can download the app then you are ready to go and you simply have to turn it on and then point your phone in the area you are curious about.

It could be noises you hear or perhaps a cold spot you feel, and once you have the phone directed in the questionable area you just have to watch the screen for words or blips to appear.

Ghost Radar Reviews

ghostly encounter


Some people that have used the Ghost Radar Classic app have found that after pointing their phone into the areas they think are suspect they have actually had readings that included letters names or notifications of energy present and this has been backed up by having several readings from different phones all showing the same results.


The negative reviews are from individuals who have used the app with a partner to verify their results and have found readings that have varied from one another. Apparently, the information on each device was significantly different enough to suggest that the app was not working as described.


Overall this ghost detector has had a lot of reviews which is understandable as its been around for a while. Out of 1,796 ratings, it has a 3.7 5 star rating. With about 20% giving it a 1% and the rest in between. So it shows that the negatives and the positives are fairly equal.

The final conclusion is that the app is really meant to be a form of entertainment and ratings will be made by most based on the way they perceive this.

An Extra

If you don’t want to be carrying your phone around with you all the time on the hunt for ghosts then you may find this Grip phone mount to be ideal.

  1. I’ve also used it up there, and had some interesting “finds”, the word “surrounded”, and Lincoln, both came up, with in moments of each other. I’m not saying the app works, but, it’s still kind of interesting, when there’s coincidences like that. Or, are they?

  2. Recently, I had the opportunity to test out this app in my old ass (probably haunted) apartment. For the longest time it did nothing, just a blank radar. I decided to say the words: where are you? To my surprise, a dot finally appears where my window was (which was directly behind me) and says in that creepy robot woman voice, window. I was very much so creeped out.

  3. Lisa,
    I used this app last week when I was at gettysburg. I was walking through the cemetary. On my Ghost Radar the word “killed” came up.I know it says that it is for entertainment purposes only, but there just may be something positive about this app.

  4. Electronic ouiji board is what it is. If I remember right, those were sold
    in the toy department for entertainment purposes too.
    Its never any useful info, but I’m convinced its paranormal.
    Be careful what you may let in when you open the door.

  5. @ Sunny… Dude…what? I know youre trying to say something. I do. But with all of your grammatical errors and misspellings i just don’t know what that is, you know?

  6. i have tried this application at diffrent place and diffrent times but it gives almost the same results as expected at few places which is prone to be the infected are since long their were misshapnings at those places most of the time and people have created some religious terminals over there to avoid all that worse incidents have happened i believe something is there.coz i have seen all red blue and green dots on the screen. let it .if this application dosent work whats there to find out these paranormal activities kindly suggest its intresting as well as scary too coz i have to pass the same passage everyday….

  7. Okay your taking the information wrong. Reading it to make it say what you want it to say. All of the ghost hunting apps have that statement made about them by the developers of the program, they say what the app does and what its made for and than say its for entertainment because if they outright say its an official real ghost detecting app than they can be held responsible for all the impatient people who cant get it to work. The iphone has the ability to pick up on EMF’s, extremely light vibrations, sound and movement. Download one of the EMF apps and check it out yourself, ive tested it with one of my real EMF’s and got basically the same readings on my iphone as the actuall device. And geophone as well is able to pick up the absolute smallest vibrations from anywhere in the room. Theres no reason to not believe that paranormal research cant be done using an iphone, ive caught EVP’s, EMP’s and video’s while ghost hunting with my iphone and its apps, along with real equipment as well. I can see why maybe an android phone doesnt work for this purpouse though because android OS and every android phone is a piece of shit not capable of doing anything at all, but the iphone is a very usefull tool that can be used in ghot hunting and paranormal research. Just look around the internet about it.

  8. Thank you for reviewing. I’m going to take this next time I go to Gettysburg and see what it does lol

  9. Haha… you have to laugh at some of these app developers 🙂
    Ghost Radar is a complete waste of time, and as this article says is definitely not going to find you any ghosts!
    I wonder how long it is until we see an iPhone being used in a ghost film with this app 🙂

    At least they admit that it’s just for fun.
