Real Paranormal Experiences

Ghosttube App Review and Guide: For Real Ghost Hunters?

Table of Contents

The GhostTube app is (currently) the most popular ghost hunting tools available for mobile phones. How does it stack up, how do you use it and is it a genuinely useful tool for paranormal investigators?

My review :  Useful! It won’t replace thousands of dollars worth of professional ghost hunter equipment but if all you have is a mobile phone Ghosttube is a solid choice .

Possibly the best app available just now and it’s dead helpful having this kind of capability in your pocket. It’s one of the (few) apps actually worth picking up.

The  main difference Ghosttube has over the alternative apps available is it doesn’t pretend to be a spirit box on a device that has no AM/FM radio signals. It serves a genuine purpose and makes for a semi-accurate and highly portable tool.

There are  two GhostTube apps available:

  • GhostTube Original
  • GhostTube SLS

The original functions much like a usual spirit box on a mobile device. Not as accurate as a purpose-made box, but usable.

Where this app  really shines is the SLS version. This is what I use and I heavily suggest upgrading .

Ghosttube Videos

Ghosttube is showing up in a  lot of hobbyist ghost hunter paranormal videos because it’s so easy to work with and the barriers to entry are so low. The app itself lets you save the videos so you can share them with other ghost hunters in your area and online.

Ghosttube SLS App Review

I took the current version out for a spin to put together a quick guide on what works, what doesn’t and how you can use the Ghost tube app properly.

What Is Ghosttube?

Like most detection apps, it’s an app that will help you detect and communicate with ghosts and spirits.  Probably one of the most advanced apps out there it uses advanced sensors with your phone’s camera to help spot humanoid bodies.

While most software tools just try and use sound to communicate with ghosts, GhostTube will actually help you spot  where they are and sometimes it’s clear what they’re doing.

It’s the low-budget equivalent to having an SLS Camera on your phone which are generally pretty high budget  plus they’re only useful if you have them on you. Even if you have the proper kit at home, you almost always have this in your pocket.

  • A fairly decent Magnetometer as most modern phones have this functionality it can try and detect electromagnetic energy.
  • SLS Camera using image analysis it can try and pick out humanoid shapes using your phone camera.
  • EVP recorder with commonly used words.
  • Proximity sensor which is similar to a REM pod using the IR sensor (again, most modern phones have this).

Does GhostTube Really Work?

There are certainly false positives but, yes, GhostTube works well for what it is.

Ghosttube SLS App Review

Not  every figure it makes out is going to be a spirit but I’ve been toying with it long enough in combination with my usual tools and there are some clear overlaps often enough.

How to Use the Ghosttube App

If you’re a seasoned ghost hunter most of this will be pretty straightforward to you. Make sure your phone is charged and turn it on. It functions best with natural light so maybe avoid turning your phone flashlight on.

The premium version of the app  does have better low light support but I still had better success while there was still some sunlight left in the evening.

Download GhostTube

The first (and hopefully obvious step) is to download the app. Available for Android and iPhone:

  • Android users can download it on the Play store here .
  • Apple users can find it on the App Store here .

Position, Patience and Communication

Where you use the app is largely going to dictate your results. Ideally, you want to use it in an area you either know has paranormal activity or is likely to.

There’s a reason many of the videos you see are taken in a cemetery.

Depending on where and when you are will dictate how patient you need to be  but you might need to be patient . Sometimes you might see something right away but ghosthunting is usually a waiting game  especially for the more meaningful encounters .

Communication can be key here. Rather than just watching shapes, try and communicate with them. The more you reach out and get their attention the better a session you’re likely to get.

Spotting Something

You can swap between modes using the LIDAR sensor or the night vision option but the most common is the SLS full-body detection.

Once the app detects a figure it’ll emit a high pitch sound alert so you won’t miss it.  Sometimes figures might come and go and other times they’ll stick around for a while.

If you lose an aspiration, scan the area to see if it’s moved.

GhostTube App Alternatives

The app store is  very crowded with fake apps playing pre-recorded soundbites and pretending to be spirit boxes and legitimate tools.

I cover a lot of ghost hunting tools and equipment but in terms of an app for your phone, there isn’t anything else that rivals it at the moment.

The closest might be the Afterlight Box if you’d rather use a computer than a phone.

GhostTube SLS vs Kinect SLS

The more popular way of spotting humanoid shapes like this has historically been with an Xbox Kinect camera which was purpose-made for this.

There are pros and cons to each. The GhostTube SLS app has been specifically made for ghost hunting while the Kinect SLS just has better quality hardware and works better in low light conditions.

The app brings portability and it’s always handy to have on you but it won’t outperform a normal SLS camera in terms of quality.

I knew it 😱

So a couple of years ago I saw something in my kitchen it is a long story and I don’t plan on writing a six minute paragraph so that’s long story short. That looked like a human. So a few months ago from now I heard walking and banging outside of my room. Ha when I got home from school the day after I got this app? I got a notification saying something that the EMF waves picked up something so I turn the app on and, well you know the rest, it picked up something five seconds after I booted up the detecter, reason why I didn’t give it five stars is, well, when I was waiting for my mom to get back from the store I got bored and re-downloaded the app (I got too scared last time and deleted it) and detected a man that was far away a bit. When the phone was close to the dashboard. I’m alitle bit skeptical but it’s fun if you wanna be scared!

So I have used this app and yah weird stuff

I was on the phone with my girlfriend and used it once and nothing but what I found interesting was after that I was sitting in my recliner her dead asleep on the phone and all I hear is chhh chhh chhh chhh chhh and it hung up on me house phone and what made me surcharging for this app was my mom woke up screaming in my guest room and I ran to her to make sure she was ok and she told me she had a vivid as can be dream about someone suffocating her with her pillow and and it’s been at least 29 years since she has had a dream like that my dad was a pastor at that time and now he’s a chaplain but the experience after use freaked me out so bad I honestly cannot bring myself to turn it back on and I’m hearing stuff now it’s really messing with me but I’ll have to check it out at my friends house he has orbs he caught on his IR camera and I mean more than I had expected he’s seen full body apparitions so I will prove this app is real I swear and I will give another review ASAP after I call him

ITS experience

So a while ago I started hearing strange sounds around my house. I heard footsteps and doorknobs shaking at night but I brushed it off as anything from wind to just gravity or my head, but I’ve been hearing things in the middle of the night and its starting to creep me out. My moms office has a closet an on the ceiling of her closet she has a small door leading to the attic. I’ve never been up there but i hear noises coming from up there and i keep getting a feeling I’m being watched or something right next t me so I downloaded this app. It detected no ghost after a few tries but then when I went into her office the radar went crazy! It still detecting no ghost. Ive found no ghost after using this app for a while so I’m starting to think maybe there really is nothing is my house... but I think this app is 100% REAL!

Hello from the other side.

A woman stands in a creepy forest searching for ghosts. These are the best ghost-hunting apps that c...

You don’t have to wait for Halloween to use a ghost hunting app. It’s a thrilling thing to do if you’re stuck at home, and even more fun to do with friends. Whether you go down to your creepy basement to talk to spirts, or venture through the woods looking for apparitions, you never know what you might find lurking in the dark.

In fact, an October 2021 survey of 2,000 people conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Phantom Wines revealed that over 63% of respondents believe in the paranormal in some form, and 44% have even had a personal paranormal encounter of their own. A third of respondents said they’ve felt a vague “unexplained presence” in their home, whether it was due to flickering lights or doors closing at random. And for the 23% who said they don’t believe in the paranormal, they admitted that they still wouldn’t want to “provoke” anything. (Looking at you, Ouija boards .)

Whether you want to debunk these claims, or prove once and for all that your hallway really is haunted , a ghost hunting app will come in handy. Most of them have heavy disclaimers stating that they can’t actually verify the presence of ghosts . But you know what? That shouldn’t stop you from playing around with tools like EMF meters or EVP recorders — and having yourself a spooky time.

Here, the 13 best ghost hunting apps that might help you detect paranormal activity .

Ghostcom Radar Spirit Detector

This highly-rated ghost hunting app allows you to exchange messages with ghosts while locating where they’re standing. (Yikes!) It also provides “spiritual statistics” about the ghost’s emotional state, zodiac sign, etc. The creators call it spooky, mysterious — and a great party game.

Download Ghostcon Radar Spirit Detector for Apple .

Download Ghostcom Radar Spirit Detector for Android .

GhostTube SLS

The GhostTube SLS app uses your phone’s technology to detect “humanoid bodies” in your environment by projecting a grid of infrared light. If your phone is new enough, it’ll also give you night vision capabilities. Open the app the next time the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, and see if someone — or something — is hanging out in the shadows.

Download GhostTube SLS for Apple .

Download GhostTube SLS for Android .

Ghost Hunting Tools

Ghost Hunting Tools, available for iPhone and Android, includes an EMF reader that detects fluctuations in the electromagnetic field, and an EVP recorder, which picks up electronic voice phenomena — things IRL ghost hunters rely on to detect otherworldly spirits. It uses a 1000-word dictionary to help you guess the intention of the spirit. And while the app says it’s just for fun, the reviews claim otherwise. One June 2021 review is titled, in all-caps, “100% REAL.”

Download Ghost Hunting Tools for Apple .

Download Ghost Hunting Tools for Google Play .

This ghost hunting app produces speech from ghosts, called instrumental trans communication, based on changes to sensors on your phone. Who knows if it's real, or if it just relies on what your phone already knows about you to send you scary messages? Either way, it’s sure to be creepy. Note: iOvilus does not provide privacy details about how the app handles your data, meaning it could be potentially unsafe.

Download iOvilus for Apple for $1.99.

Spirit Board

Ask the Spirit Board questions, or input text, and then wait for a ghost to respond. To really set the mood, the creators suggest darkening your room and lighting a few candles. Then, place your fingers on the planchette, Ouija-board style, to initiate a ghostly convo. If a spirit responds to your questions, the planchette will move to show their answer. With four stars and over 30,000 reviews on the App Store, you know you’ll be in for a spooky time.

Ghost Detector — Haunted Radar

The Ghost Detector — Haunted Radar app claims to be the most accurate ghost detecting app. It works by picking up changes in electromagnetic fields to identify whether or not ghosts are present. Use it to search for spirits, or to scare your friends.

Ghost Radar: CLASSIC

If you’re a skilled ghost hunter, then you probably already know that traditional paranormal equipment can malfunction if “normal energy” interferes with the readings. Ghost Radar: CLASSIC solves that problem for you by analyzing the readings only when interesting patterns occur. So rest assured that you can go about your investigation without being fooled by something mundane, like the sound of wind or water messing with your reading. Note: Users report that this app has distracting full-screen pop-up ads that link out to sites.

Ghost Tracker EMF EVP Recorder

The Ghost Tracker EMF EVP Recorder is said to be one of the most accurate and veteran-approved ghost hunting trackers out there, according to a real paranormal researcher . In fact, in an interview with VICE in 2018, Kim Johnston , a paranormal researcher from Birmingham, Alabama, said, “I find that [app] useful because it’s built by genuine researchers and not people who are just trying to have fun or make an app that’s kind of a joke.” Rely on this one if you want to get good data.

Download Ghost Tracker EMF EVP Recorder for Apple for $3.99.

Download Ghost Tracker EMF EVP Recorder for Android for $5.99.

Sono X10 Spirit Box

To switch things up, try the Sono X10 Spirit Box, which is another tool Johnston likes to use. To sum up what a spirit box is, the creators of the app made it simple: “It is not the spirit’s voice you hear, but the spirit can create words from the voice bank by manipulating the mobile’s sensors.” Um, creepy!

Download Sono X10 Spirit Box for Apple .

Paranormal EMF Recorder and Scanner

This app is aimed at anyone who has an interest in paranormal investigation and research. It offers “fun and easy to use” EMF detection, automated EMF recording, and the ability analyze your findings right in the app. Get ready to hear some ~ghostly voices~.

Download Paranormal EMF Recorder and Scanner for Apple .

OVERNIGHT Ghost Hunt Toolbox

Here’s one that has everything you need to conduct a full paranormal investigation. You’ll get a spirit box, digital dowsing rods , an entity detector, and more. Once you’ve finished collecting data, go ahead and share what you found in the “community” section.

Ghosthunting Toolkit

This app supplies you with five powerful ghost-hunting tools, including an EMF detector, a vibration detector, power detector, an EVP recorder, and even an interrogation tool to interview intelligent haunts. Use the vibration detector to verify if your furniture is, in fact, shaking all on its own, and the power detector to “coax entities into revealing their manifestation strength.”

Download Ghosthunting Toolkit for Apple for $5.99.

Ghost Detector Radar Camera

Beware: This app is horrifying. To use it, brace yourself and walk around using the screen to hunt for ghosts. If one pops up, use the app to ask them questions. It’s an “ultra-realistic experience” that might as well be real, especially if you’re using the app alone.

On the other hand, the radar detector finds all the ghosts that rotate in place and show three points in different colors to identify the signal strength. If it is green, it means a stable flow of incredible energy is flowing. If it’s yellow, it means the signal is weaker. But red translates to their distance. It also shows several words that can be explained. Maybe this is the message you received from the afterlife!

Best Free Ghost Apps: Our Top Picks for 2021

Last Updated on May 31, 2021

Whether you’re newly curious about the paranormal or you’re a veteran of preternatural detection, never before has there been more options for app-based technology for ghost tracking.

A collage of ghost hunting apps

With a smartphone and some basic understanding of ghost detection tools, anyone can try their luck at the science of apparitions. 

However, as the app market has grown, so has the possibility that the app you are purchasing is more for entertainment than for actual ghost detection.

So, what are the best free ghost apps?   The best ghost apps should have a mix of high-quality paranormal technology, but be easy enough for beginners and amateurs to use.  Understanding how ghost apps work and what to look for when purchasing an app can make sure you get the best value for the lowest cost.

How do these apps work?

One of the tools traditional paranormal researchers use to detect activity is an EMF (electromagnetic field) meter.   The presence of EMF fields closely links to paranormal experiences (hallucinations, paranoia, the feeling of being watched, etc.).

Once you debunk that there’s unusual electrical activity in the location, researchers often move to measure electronic voice phenomena or EVPs. 

The best free ghost apps offer EMF, EVP, and recording equipment all for an affordable price.

What to look for when purchasing a ghost app?

ghostvid app

Many people rely on user reviews before downloading app.  However, when it comes to ghost apps, it might be worth digging a bit deeper into the technology and the app developers. 

If the app can’t accurately indicate the type of technology and or how the detection works, there’s a chance you’re getting more of a ‘fun’ than actual paranormal detection.

A simple search of the app developers can provide some credible references for their work.  Are they experienced investigators with a background in paranormal activity? 

Do the app developers demonstrate any experience in the field?  Apps that provide this background information on the developers will prove far more valuable.

Our Picks for the Best Free Ghost Apps:

Ghost radar (classic & legacy edition) – ios & android – free.

ghostvid app

One of the first paranormal apps to ever hit the market, Ghost Radar by Spud Pickles has been providing goosebumps and thrills to users since 2009. 

The app has a simple, easy to use interface providing feedback to the user through voice recognition technology. 

It also can be configured to work in the background, allowing users to flip back and forth between apps without missing any detection opportunities.

With several hundred ratings between the classic and legacy editions, it’s also one of the most popular apps in the app store.

One final note about Ghost Radar.  The app developers include a disclosure about the verifiability of the information detected in Ghost Radar. 

They indicate it should be used for entertainment purposes only — a word of caution for anyone looking for top-notch paranormal technology.

SGK1 – Ghost Hunting Kit – Android – FREE

ghostvid app

Android device users will appreciate this easy-to-use toolkit of everything you need for ghost detection. 

The app contains a full range of detection tools including EMF detector, EVP recorder, and a spirit box with more than 3000 different sound clips from historical detections. 

The app allows users to label and store detections for later analysis. It’s free for basic use but does allow in-app purchases to remove ads and unlock additional features.

Sono X10 Spirit Box – iOS & Android – FREE

ghostvid app

Unlike other paranormal detection apps that use electromagnetic detection, Sono X10 Spirit Box uses voicebank technology to detect spirit activity.

The app has a voicebank of thousands of sounds, phonemes, and speech clips accessible to nearby paranormal beings.  These paranormal spirits use the voicebank to assemble full words or sentences communicated back to the smartphone user. 

The user is not ‘recording’ paranormal voices; however, as with other spirit boxes, the paranormal spirit manipulates the sensors in your phone to generate a message.

The app is free for use, although there is a larger soundbank available for purchase in the app.

Ghost Tracker EMF EVP Recorder – iOS & Android

ghostvid app

This one isn’t free (it’s cheap though) but we wanted to include it because it was developed by well-known Swedish ghost hunters LaxTon Ghost Sweden HB, this iOS and Android app offers 3-in-1 ghost hunting technology. 

The app contains an EMF-scanner, EVP/Voice recorder, and a motion detector.  Beginner ghost hunters will love the easy-to-use features and ability to share data with family and friends.

The app has more 1 and 2-star ratings than other paranormal detection apps on the market, although many of those seem to be related to glitches in previous versions.

Paranormal Ghost EVP Radio – iOS & Android

ghostvid app

App developer Exelerus promises that Paranormal Ghost EVP radio app takes traditional ghost hunting to the next level. 

Though not free, it’s designed for both paranormal researchers and ghost enthusiasts alike, the app includes both EMF and EVP technologies, along with an easy-to-share text log to capture all of your recordings. 

The app also allows recordings to be uploaded to Dropbox for easy storage and sharing. With several thousand reviews among Android and iOS users consider it one of the best ghost apps on the market.

Ghost Hunter M2 – iOS

ghostvid app

This is another app with a small fee that is pretty popular with ghost hunters. With more than 1,000 ratings in the app store, Ghost Hunter M2 is among the most popular and highly rated paranormal apps currently available. 

Among the long list of app, features are an EMF and EVP detectors, geoscope instrument, spatial displacement instrument, and a barometer to analyze barometric data collected by your phone. 

The app also features auto-detection and a Fast Fourier Transform Visualizer (FFT-V) algorithms to analyze audio signals.

It’s well-regarded as the most complex paranormal toolkit available on the app store to date.

Ghost Detect Pro – iOS

ghostvid app

If you’re searching for a super low priced paranormal app, Ghost Detect Pro by Perfect Reality Apps might be the best choice for you.

The app offers easy-to-use features including EMF and EVP detectors with recording, radar, and a vibration detector.  Unlike other apps, Ghost Detect Pro provides all the available sensors on one page, rather than having to flip between measurement tools. 

Graphing details collect data over time with each measurement recorded in bold colors.

Note that users give the app mixed ratings. Some users have a positive experience using the app on different smartphones models, others find the app more challenging to navigate with older smartphones.

Things to Remember When Using App-Based Detection

As you start to experiment with some of the apps above, there are some good reminders and tips that can help improve your user experience and avoid frustration.  Keep in mind these considerations as you start your own ghost hunting experience:

  • Fully charge your smartphone. Using EMF and EVP detection can cause a significant drain on smartphone batteries. There’s nothing worse than being right in the middle of some spooky fun only to have your phone battery die.  If necessary, carry a back-up battery charging pack with you in case your session runs longer than planned.
  • Carry a back-up EVP recorder. Not all of the EVP recording technology in the apps above are created the same.  You may find it helpful to carry a back up vocal recording device with you until you’re confident and comfortable that the smartphone app is working correctly.  Two ghost recordings of the same paranormal sounds are always better than one!
  • Try shorter encounters. Until you know exactly how to read and analyze the recordings, it’s better to try shorter sessions of a paranormal meeting rather than an extended day-long session.  Going back to sort through that much information can be tedious, and it may be hard to recall all the exact details of what you encountered in longer sessions.
  • Be patient. Detecting paranormal activity requires patience and a willingness to keep at it.  You may not encounter anything unusual on your first few outings.  By continuing to test and become more familiar with your app-based technology, you only increase the likelihood of a ghost encounter.

Related Questions

What is an EVP recorder?

Measuring EVP or Electronic Voice Phenomena is one of the methods used by paranormal researchers to detect ghost activity. 

EVP is thought to be vocalizations caused by ghosts as attempts to communicate.  EVP recorders are devices that work to identify and record EVP using highly sensitive audio equipment. 

The goal of using an EVP recorder is to detect ghost voices and capture them for later analysis.

EVP recorders come in several different types, some specifically designed for paranormal activity, and others sell for more general use.

It’s possible to purchase EVP recorders in various formats (hand-held, wrist recorders, stand-alone, etc.) for different types of audio (digital, high-resolution, large format, etc.).

Choose a model of EVP recorder based on personal preference, the location you intend to use the EVP recorder at, and the type of analysis you plan to do with the recordings. 

As mentioned above, many app-based EVP recorders can download digital audio files right to your smartphone as well.

5 Free Spirit Box Apps That Actually Work (2022)

5 Free Spirit Box Apps That Actually Work (2022)

Maybe you want to experience paranormal activity and go on a ghost hunt .

Whatever your reason for wanting to contact the spirit world, whether it’s to gain knowledge about the afterlife or to communicate with the dead, these spirit box apps, also known as ghost box apps, will give you the opportunity you desire to experience life after death.

It used to be that only people with psychic ability could contact the spirit world.

Now with all the technological advancements out there, we have the ability to tap into the realm of the dead with advanced phone apps that use technology similar to if you went out and purchased a spirit box (or ghost box ) yourself.

What Is A Spirit Box?

Nikola Tesla (who many people think is the greatest inventor of all time), is accredited with saying “if you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibrations”.

Since energy cannot be destroyed, when we die, it’s only our physical body that dies. Our consciousness still remains alive and can sometimes become stuck between the spirit realm and the physical realm.

Audio vibrations and frequencies are a form of energy. Much like spirits, it’s not something that we can touch or see. It’s something that can only be heard and felt.

Spirits are energy that can shape and form the energy around them into audible sounds or voices. This is a very basic understanding of how spirit boxes work.

The spirit boxes can help the dead communicate with us by giving them a medium to talk between the world of the dead and the world of the living.

With the power of a computer (your phone) at the tip of your fingertips, they now have advanced apps out there that will let anyone who’s brave enough, tap into paranormal activity by giving them access to technology that can help them connect with the dead.

How and Why Do the Dead Connect with Us?

The dead can look to connect with us for many reasons. Oftentimes they want to communicate with us to send us a message, or sometimes it’s just because they’re looking for a way to stay connected with their loved ones that they too lost.

If we are looking to speak with them, then it could be a good sign that they want to speak with us too. First, we must learn to control our own energy before we can look to tap into the energy of the lost.

The dead look to communicate with as through as many means as possible. With technology so widespread and available all over the world, it’s no wonder that spirits often use this as a measure to talk to the living.

People have seen their TVs unexplainably flicker on and off, voicemails with eery messages left on them, or fully powered devices being drained in an instant. There are some things that science can’t explain and that’s because it’s from the supernatural.

What to Do If You Want to Contact the Spirit Realm

If you’re interested in contacting the dead, one of the best, most available methods to do so is by downloading a spirit box app . This is a free way that you can try to contact any spirits that might be lingering around you.

When you first start using a ghost box app, you might think that any noise that comes through the app is a spirit trying to contact you. Make sure that you learn how to differentiate between white noise and spirit noise. It might take a little while to get used to but the more practice you get, the easier it will become.

These ghost hunting apps are nice because instead of having to use an actual ghost box (spirit box) and a recorder to play back the noise, they have everything done for you already.

Some things to keep in mind when using a spirit box app to help you get better results

• Keep sessions brief (longer sessions can require higher levels of concentration and are not recommended for beginners who don’t know what to look for)

• Pay close attention to any other noises that occur when recording (that way you know what to ignore when playing the audio back)

• Don’t try to invoke any bad spirits (the spirit realm is very real and so are demons, they will try to latch on to any souls that are vulnerable and looking to welcome them into their lives)

• Make sure to have some sort of protective gem, charm, or crystal that will help ward off evil spirits. Some gemstones that are best known to have protective properties are black tourmaline, agate, bloodstone, peridot, black onyx, emerald, and labradorite (with black tourmaline being known as the most effective)

• Always be mindful of the spirits you’re communicating with. The more willing to understand them when communicating with them, the more likely they will be to consider communicating back with you.

• Be considerate and patient when trying to speak with the spirit realm, the more you desire to communicate with them, the higher chance you will have of hearing them (if you try one time it might not work, the more you attempts you make, the higher your odds will be)

The 5 Best Spirit Box Apps Available Right Now

1.) sv-2 spiritvox app (best for android).


This app comes in at the top of our list. It was specially designed by ghost hunters and has some of the most sophisticated technology out there when it comes to connecting with the spirit realm.

With four recording channels, two noise banks, and a channel sweep to monitor frequencies, it’s everything that you need for going out on a ghost hunt.

In our opinion, the SV-2 SpiritVox App is the best application you can download right now. It isn’t free, but it’s probably the closest you can get to connect with the spirit realm without actually purchasing an actual spirit box.

Click here to download the SV-2 SpiritBox App from the Android Store

2.) SGK-1 Ghost Hunting Kit (Android)


This app will convert your android phone into an EMF (electromagnetic field) detector that can be perfect for detecting where to go to pick up any paranormal activity.

It also comes with a spirit box and an EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) recorder, which will give you everything you need when it comes to communicating with the dead.

The great thing about the SGK-1 Ghost Hunting Kit is that it’s free to download. However, there is a small subscription fee if you want to remove the ads and get access to some additional features.

Click here to download the SGK-1 Ghost Hunting Kit from the Google Play Store

3.) Sono X10 (Best for iPhone)


The Sono X10 is without a doubt, the best alternative for iPhone users. It is great for both amateurs and professionals alike. It’s both easy to use as well as advanced and sophisticated.

They developed this app with a voicebank to help spirits create words by using small bits of the alphabet (called phonemes). Remember that spirits don’t have physical bodies or voice boxes to communicate with us, they manipulate the energy by using the technology within the app to make us understand what they are trying to convey to us.

The Sono X10 is another free spirit box app you can download on the App Store.

Click here to download the Sono X10 Spirit Box App from the App Store

4.) Ghost Hunting Tools (iPhone)


Ghost hunting tools is a popular free app that has an EVP detector, EMF meter, as well as a word analysis feature that will attempt to decipher any words that it thinks the spirit is trying to speak to you.

By analyzing audio files in combination with the sensors from the EMF meter and the environmental readers, it attempts to interpret and display the words it believes the spirit is trying to communicate.

There are some mixed reviews on this app but most of them are good. It also says that the app is for entertainment purposes only, so just keep that in mind when purchasing it.

Click here to download the Ghost Hunting Tools Spirit Box App from the App Store

5.) Ghost Sensor EM4 Detector (Android)

ghostvid app

The self-proclaimed most accurate ghost detector on the market uses an EM4 algorithm that can measure and detect both good and bad energies of paranormal entities nearby.

Most of the reviews about this app are very positive, and some people share their own personal stories of contacting their dead relatives.

The Ghost Sensor EM4 Detector app is a free spirit box app as well.

Click here to download the Ghost Sensor EM4 Detector App from the Google Play Store

Why should you use a spirit box app?

It’s by far the most effective and affordable (free is always good) way to communicate with spirits. Whether you’re looking for a one-time communication to speak to a dead relative, or you’re looking to constantly speak with spirits from another realm, these apps can do it all for you.

With having a way to communicate with the dead at a moment’s notice, you’re not going to want to miss out on this awesome opportunity to stay in touch with the ghostly world.

Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a high-quality spirit box, you can simply download the app on your phone and then set your mind and heart on connecting to the spirit realm.

It may take a couple of sessions to get used to, but if you keep in mind all the tips that I gave you earlier, you should be able to make contact in no time.

Don’t get dismayed if you have trouble talking to the dead the first time. Keep an open mind when it comes to contacting the dead. If you don’t believe that you can talk with the dead, then believe me, the dead won’t be as likely to want to talk with you.

They are usually only open to speaking with people that are in touch with what their mind is capable of and know that they can use their mind to achieve what seems impossible. The mind will work wonders when it comes to finding a way to accomplish what it sets out to do. When you believe in something strongly enough, all the forces of the universe will gather to make it happen for you.

The SB-7 Spirit Box

It is important to note, however, that spirit box apps are not as effective as actual spirit boxes . If you really want to be a paranormal investigator or ghost hunter, you should definitely get an actual spirit box. If you’re interested in purchasing one, we recommend the P-SB7 Spirit Box .

The Best Ghost Hunting Apps that claim to detect paranormal activity

Paranormal investigations have seen a surge in popularity in recent years, and Ghost Hunting apps are becoming an essential tool for both professional and amateur ghost hunters.

These apps are packed with features designed to detect and identify spiritual activity and claim to make  ghost hunting  more accessible.

In this article, we will be discussing some of the top-rated ghost hunting apps available today.

Table of Contents

What are ghost hunting apps, best paranormal apps, evaluating the best ghost hunting app.

Ghost hunting apps are smartphone applications designed to assist users in detecting and tracking possible paranormal phenomena.

These apps utilise various tools, sensors, and algorithms to identify, record and analyse potential spirit encounters.

Functions and Features

Ghost hunting apps offer several vital functions and features that can be used in a paranormal investigation. Some of the most common features available in these apps include:

  • EMF Detectors:  Apps such as GhostTube include a Magnetic Field Detector, which measures electromagnetic field fluctuations using the device’s built-in magnetometer. It is believed that unusual readings could indicate paranormal activity nearby.
  •   EVP Recorders:   Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP)  recorders capture sounds that are not detectable by the human ear but may be heard during playback. While many investigators prefer using a handheld voice recorder, ghost-hunting apps, like GhostTube and the  Paranormal EMF Recorder and Scanner , have built-in EVP recording capabilities. It is also possible to use your device’s built-in Voice Recorder to attempt to record EVPs, as we proved at the  Galleries of Justice  in Nottingham.
  •   SLS Cameras:  The makers of GhostTube have created an SLS Camera Tool that works well on Apple devices equipped with LiDAR technology. SLS cameras are believed to be able to detect the human form, and spirits may show as stick figures if they are present.
  •   Vibration Detectors:  These tools detect unusual vibrations or movements in the environment. The  Ghost Hunting Toolkit  is an example of an app with a vibration detector.
  •   ITC Applications:  Several ITC applications, such as Echovox or ParaTek, use multiple banks of phonetic sounds to generate intelligent responses. Spirits are said to be able to manipulate these electronic sound forms to form full words and even sentences.

GhostTube is a ghost-hunting app that uses the sensors on your mobile device to detect fluctuations in magnetic energy, select words from a pre-populated data bank, and  record EVPs  during paranormal investigations.

The app’s developers also offer a virtual reality headset that can be used with GhostTube apps for an immersive experience while investigating or aiding in sensory deprivation during Estes-like experiments.

Another cool feature GhostTube offer is an SLS Ghost Camera app that uses the LiDAR technology built into Apple devices to detect humanoid bodies that the naked eye cannot see. It projects a grid of infrared light to detect depth and see in the dark as the Kinect SLS camera works.

GhostTube is available on both the App Store and Google Play Store, while the GhostTube SLS camera is available on the App Store.

EchoVox is a well-known app in the paranormal community that is designed to facilitate communication with spirits via ITC (Instrumental Trans-Communication).

With adjustable settings and studio-quality results, users can capture and analyse audio recordings, which are said to include real-time responses from spirits.

Nick Groff and respected Paranormal Investigator Barri Ghai, the tech expert on the British paranormal show Help My House is Haunted, use this app regularly.

Barri explains: “Somehow, this application produces incredible results during any investigation.”

ParaTek  is a ghost hunting app that claims to use third-generation AI technology to detect paranormal activity. The app features a built-in gyroscope and magnetometer that can scan through four layers of data to analyse and decipher over 2000 words in the app.

Some users have reported success with the app, while others have expressed skepticism about its ability to detect paranormal activity.

The Paratek app has also been featured on a paranormal TV show called “Ghost Chasers” and ‘Help My House is Haunted’ on the Discovery network.

The app’s developers claim that both novice and professional ghost hunters trust it and that they consistently strive to bring the best technology available to their apps.


Necrophonic  is a popular app focusing on ITC (Instrumental Transcommunication) research in paranormal investigations.

Whereas a  Spirit Box  would scan radio frequencies to search for spirit voices, Necrophonic uses eight sound banks, and the app generates white noise to facilitate communication with spirits.

As a result, users can potentially receive real-time spirit voices through their devices.

Accuracy and Reliability

When evaluating the best ghost hunting app, it’s essential to consider the accuracy and reliability of the tools provided. Apps such as GhostTube utilise actual sensors built into the device, such as the magnetometer, to provide users with a credible experience.

Television medium Chris Fleming, who champions the use of ITC applications, told GhostMag in a recent interview that there can be a lot of “false positives”, but believes he has recorded “remarkable conversations and evidence” when using ghost hunting apps.

“We have heard, captured and analysed some of the direct responses. The proof is in the data”, he added.

Reviews and Testimonials

Another vital factor to consider when evaluating the best ghost hunting app is the app’s overall reputation.

This can be assessed by checking user reviews and testimonials, which provide valuable insight into the app’s performance and effectiveness.

Highly-rated apps like  Ghostcom Radar Spirit Detector  have numerous positive reviews, indicating that they may be efficient and helpful during paranormal investigations.

The credibility of a ghost hunting app can also be determined by analysing its adoption and success among professional ghost hunters and its performance during investigations. For example, professional investigator  Barri Ghai  strongly recommends EchoVox, ParaTek, and Necrophonic on his website.

We recommend trying different applications on the same investigation, as we have found that some apps work better than others in specific locations.

It is also important not to rely solely on Ghost Hunting Apps to record paranormal evidence. While they can be fun to use and occasionally throw up some extraordinary evidence, we suggest you also take some traditional  ghost-hunting gear !

This article discusses some of the top ghost hunting apps available for both iOS and Android devices. These apps offer a variety of tools and features, assisting paranormal investigators and enthusiasts in their ghostly endeavors.

The effectiveness and validity of these apps in detecting paranormal activity remain subjective.

Nonetheless, their growing popularity suggests that users find value in their assistance during paranormal investigations. As with any tool, using these apps responsibly and with a healthy dose of skepticism is essential.

In conclusion, ghost hunting apps can be an exciting and valuable addition to any paranormal investigator’s toolkit.

With the increasing advancement in smartphone technology, these apps continue to evolve, offering users new and innovative ways to explore the world of the paranormal.
