Looking for the Ghost Radar®: LEGACY app page?


  1. The three lights represent how “warmed up” the app is. Once all three lights are lit then the app should have determined what is normal for your environment.
  2. This section of letters is for intelligent entities to try to communicate with by influencing the readings to select letters. Dashes “-” indicate no activity. Dots “.” indicate activity is very strong.
  3. Ghost Radar attempts to translate the sensor readings into a spoken word. Ideally the entities you are trying to interact with can manipulate the sensors and have Ghost Radar speak their words. The spoken word is displayed in this section. Supported language localizations are available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Portuguese.
  4. This is a small radar symbol used to represent the current setting of the Scan Frequency. When the Scan Frequency is high this small radar will pulsate quickly. When it’s low the radar will pulsate slowly.
  5. The three sets of numbers at the top are raw data coming into the device. Basically all the readings are distilled down to three main numbers. The three lines in the graph represent those three numbers. When those lines/numbers change quickly it indicates a change in the energies around the device.
  6. Use this button to select the VOX view.
  7. Use this button to select the Radar view.
  8. Use this button to view the words that have been spoken.
  9. Use this button if you would like to send yourself a transcript of your adventures.
  10. Press this small “i” to access settings and help. This “i” is only available on the iPhone/iPod touch platform. For the Android platform press the phone’s “menu” button, usually a physical button on the bottom of the phone.
  11. The Level meter gives and indication of when things are happening. The scrolling letters on the bottom are picked based on a combination of certain readings.
  12. Tune in to your flux by changing the Sensitivity with this knob. Modify the settings to eliminate the noise in your hunting grounds. Choose the sensitivity of the radar; Low, Medium, or High. A highly sensitive radar may give many false readings due to the noise in your environment.


To change how often a reading of the flux is made change the Scan Frequency. The range is from about 1 reading per second to about 60 times per second. Decreasing the Scan Frequency can eliminate false readings in a noisy environment.

The Duplicate Detection Threshold can be changed to adjust for rapid readings that detect the same entity. A longer threshold will decrease the likelihood of detecting the same signal multiple times.

Display Impedance is the setting that allows you to change how often the radar blips are updated. Increase the impedance to have your radar update slower. Each time the display is updated the flux readings are analysed and the readouts are refreshed.

If the blip you are tracking has not been seen for a certain amount of time it will be removed from the radar. This time is controlled by the Signal Timeout setting. Decrease the timeout to have the blips removed as soon as possible.

The flux readings are stored in a series of containers before they are interpreted as a signal that needs to be displayed. You can increase the number of containers by increasing the Signal Capacitance setting. Increasing the capacitance can help eliminate false readings by requiring a larger number of hits to be read.


Is Ghost Radar real?
We believe the application is as effective as an EMF detector or a KII. The theory of what is happening is that intelligent energy can be made aware of their ability to influence the sensors of the device. You must decide for yourself if the readings are indicative of actual paranormal activity. Keep a log of strange readings, or video tape your hunting. Allow the corroborating evidence to influence your view of Ghost Radar’s authenticity. Drop us a line, and let us know what you find with Ghost Radar. Please note we offer no guarantees of accuracy or any warranties, therefore, since results from this application cannot be verified scientifically the app should be used for entertainment purposes.
How does Ghost Radar work?
The majority of equipment used to hunt for paranormal activity was not originally designed to hunt ghosts and do not find the majority of their use in the paranormal. For example EMF detectors and KII meters were designed for electrical work and are used predominantly in that field, not the paranormal. Also, IR cameras were originally developed for military use. These days IR cameras are mostly used by firefighters, astronomers, police, etc. Even though these devices were not originally designed for the field of paranormal they do seem to be the most effective tools in the hunt for the unknown. Ghost Radar® enables ordinary computers and mobile devices to be used for the paranormal even though these devices were not originally designed for the paranormal, just like the EMF detector, KII meter, and IR cameras. The readings that Ghost Radar® presents are open to your interpretation and up for debate.

Ghost Radar® does not employ the readings from sensors like traditional paranormal equipment. It does not detect EMF nor does it detect EVPs. The app provides a set of parameters for paranormal energies to manipulate which are then processed and presented as graphical, textual, and audible readouts. Like other Instrumental Trans-Communication (ITC) techniques, Ghost Radar® takes raw readings and tries to make sense of subtle changes.

It’s believed that paranormal energies have the ability to influence electrical equipment. This idea comes from the concept that matter, life, souls, and light are fundamentally an electrical phenomenon. As a result the app uses streams of data from processing units and memory locations as the raw mechanism for paranormal energies to manipulate. The readings come in constantly and have only very minor changes. Ghost Radar® tracks these readings and analyzes them; watching for strange behavior. Based on a multitude of different readings and historical trends Ghost Radar® uses its proprietary algorithm to present various visual and audible representations of the readings.

It has been suggested that paranormal energies manifest themselves through the Quantum Flux (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_fluctuation) or are an aspect of Jung’s Collective Unconscious. Regardless of the medium through which the energies manipulate electric devices the resulting manipulated readings seem to indicate intelligence on occasion. There are plenty of ways for paranormal energies to interact with computers and mobile devices, the trick is to interpret the readings and present them in a way to help track the paranormal activity. Contrary to some claims, Ghost Radar® does not browse contact lists, listen to conversations through the microphone, nor are the responses preprogramed or simply random.

What do the colors mean?
On the Radar view the colors of the blips are an indication of signal strength. Red indicates the signal is strongest. Yellow is a little weaker signal than red. Green is a little weaker signal than yellow. Finally blue indicates a very weak signal.

On the Spoken Words list the colors of the words are an indication of when they were spoken relative the when the application was launched. Words spoken very early after the launch appear bright red. As the radar warms up the red fades. After many minutes the words will be gray. Eventually, after the application has warmed up, the words will be black.

What is the range between rings on the radar?
We have been unable to determine the exact range of the radar. It seems capable of detecting signals up to 50 yards. However, one thing to keep in mind is that the signals are coming from all 3 dimensions. So if you’re in a building with floors above or below you that means you might be seeing signals from those other floors. Unfortunately the two dimensional radar does not convey the 3rd dimension’s info in a very intuitive way.
Why dont the blips move when I rotate the device?
The blips represent an instance of where a signal was last detected. The time that the blip stays in that location on the radar is controlled by a combination of the settings. If you wish to track signals as quickly as possible and potentially watch blips move as you rotate the device you can adjust the Advanced Settings. Keep in mind that your adjusted settings may lead to false readings of the noise in your environment. To track signals quickly try maximizing the Scan Frequency and minimizing the rest of the settings.
What are the best settings?
We’ve found the best readings to occur when all settings are set to 10.0 except the “Signal Timeout” which we keep at 1.0. Also, let the Ghost Radar run for 5 to 10 minutes so it can adjust to the environment. Turn the settings knob to “Low” to automatically select these settings.
Why do the readings go crazy when I start it?
When the radar first starts it will be very sensitive to the noise in your environment perhaps giving false readings. After several minutes of self adjustment the radar will learn how to filter out the noise. The longer the radar is allowed to run the more sensitive it becomes to anomalous readings. You can turn off the speech synthesizer during this time period in the settings menu.
Can I turn off the screen during a dark investigation?
Android OS: Simply press the power button and the screen should go dark.

iPhone OS: If Ghost Radar is too bright for your nightly adventure just swipe the radar from right to left and the screen will go dark, touch the screen again and the radar will return to view. Also, you can temporarily use Ghost Radar as an extra source of light, like a flashlight, in a dark environment. If you’re wandering the dark, using Ghost Radar to search for the paranormal and need a bit of extra light just swipe Ghost Radar from the bottom to the top and the screen will instantly turn a bright white, then tap the screen to return to the radar. Neither the bright screen nor the dark screen have any effect on the radar doing its job. The radar continues to function even when you can’t see it. And with Ghost Radar’s speech synthesizer you will be able to hear when something is happening.

How do I delete words that have been recorded?
Android OS: Long click (hold your finger on the list item for a few seconds) the session or word you wish to delete. A menu will pop up asking you to confirm the delete.

iPhone OS: Swipe the session or word you wish to delete. A delete button will appear.
