Ghost Observer app review: detect, observe, and communicate with spirits


Ghost Observer

Price: Free

Ghost Observer by mac-lloyd is an entertainment app that will have you seeing ghosts.

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to work as a paranormal investigator here's your chance. In this app you'll be able to detect, observe, and then even communicate with these ghosts. The app includes an electro-magnetic signature that helps you figure out the ghost's history and even its habits.

There is a radar detector, in-depth analysis of your readings, a translator, amplification tuning, and frequency spectrum tuning. If you want the Translator and No Ads feature it is an additional $0.99.

In the latest version of the app there were some major enhancements made to the overall performance of the app giving it a more high-tech look and feel. As well there was a bug fix and an in-app purchase added called Spritism for $1.99.

This app is meant to feel and look like a professional quality tool. The technology it uses is actually quite advanced so you really feel like a paranormal investigator, kind of. The sound effects are kind of creepy and the EMF detector actually works.

Ghost Observer was updated on Apr. 18, 2013 and currently has 23 customer ratings with an average rating of three and a half out of five stars.

This is one of those apps that does feel very realistic and a bit spooky at that. There aren't a ton of features and I didn't love the fact that some features required an in-app purchase but overall this is fun and truly is entertaining.


  • A professional quality tool that lets you detect, observe, and communicate with ghosts

  • Not all features are free
  • Seems a bit thin in the features department
