My Paranormal State app review:
After reading about this exciting application for my iPod touch, I quickly rushed to the iTunes store to get it. I was happy to see that it was a free
app. So I downloaded it as quick as possible and loaded it onto my iPod so I could get to some action with my new ability to do a high tech ghost
hunt. After an unavoidable 10 second advertisement for Paranormal State(Mondays on A&E), I was ready to find some ghosts! There are 4 menu items, the
first being EMF which is the EMF reader of course. The second is the Share item, where you can share the awesomeness of Paranormal State(Mondays on
A&E), and this technological masterpiece of an application with your friends. The third is "What is EMF?" where they explain the basics of what an
EMF field is. Curiously, they leave out how this app is able to read an EMF, but maybe they just forgot to add it in. The fourth, of course, is the
About button with email addresses and whatnot.
So now that my app is loaded and ready to go, I get off my chair and go ghost hunting. I immediately hold the reader up in the room to get the much
needed baseline reading. It says my bedroom is at .5mG(milliGauss). OK that seems reasonable although there are about 12 pieces of electronics on in
here. So I exit my room and cautiously approach a lamp in the corner of the living room. I hold my handy EMF reader up to the cord connected to the
lamp. .5mG it says. Must be strong shielding in the cord. That's good to know. No ghosts here, I decide to take my investigation upstairs. WAIT! Oh
my god, it's 50mG on my stairs... a ghost?! Unable to move in the excitement of finding my first ghost, I watch the meter closely. It stays at 50mG.
I finally work up the courage to go back down the stairs and the meter goes back down to .5mG. I hope I didn't lose the ghost, so I go back onto the
stairs and sadly the ghost has left the area(.5mG again). Hmmm, maybe the ghost has gone upstairs. I go up the stairs and walk into the kitchen,
50mG!!! Wait no, it's going up and down as I move my reader around. Maybe the ghost is playing tricks with me? Sneaky ghost... I decide to turn on
the microwave because that is certain to produce a large EMF field. I set it to 30 seconds and...... .5mG. Must be strong shielding on the microwave
as well. I check out the upstairs living room and do what the instructions say this time. I move my hand around in slow sweeping motions and holy
crap, ghosts are everywhere!! My entire house is filled with ghosts! I can't walk 2 feet without finding another one. This must be the most haunted
house in existence. I should definitely call up the Ghost Hunters and get a formal investigation done. I might make history and it's all thanks to my
trusty Paranormal State(Mondays on A&E) EMF reader. Thanks A&E, I owe you one!
[Long story short, it just works from the motion sensor as you would expect.]
