For the GPS that makes sense as it could cross reference with cemeteries, and knows haunted places and become more active.
An Airport might not be on it's list, or it depends on where in the cycle the program can be.
It's my opinion based on observation of these programs, similar ones and talking to some friends of mine that develop apps that this is how it
GPS+Data mining(audio, video, profile etc...)+ heuristic algorithms on the data mined and location+ throw in a bit of random generation(random to get
lucky, and random to avoid patters caused by heuristics).
Bam you have a ghost app.
I just don't think that our phones can pull off what these apps say they can without seriously tweaking the phone and that could mess with the phone
So instead they wrote a program that uses many source gathering info to make it seem real.
I don't think the program checks ancestry.com as that would be hard to code, but if your phone has FB checking pics and names tagged wouldn't be
As far as the phone being able to do this stuff or not I went over that in my first post, I'll link to it.
Me personally I love the paranormal, and I think there are some great tools out there like real "ghost boxes".
I think these apps though are cleverly written programs, that honestly do more harm than good as they muddy the waters.
If you want contact with the spirit world, I'd invest in some divination equipment and some ghost hunting tools.
As well as a tripod for the digital video camera we all have laying around.
That way you can record your experience without camera shake.
My thoughts, there are tools out there that can aid in paranormal research.
Tools that don't actually require computer programming, word banks, location tracking.
I just don't think our phones can do what these apps say they can, they just weren't built with these things in mind.
I think they are cleverly written programs, that play to the audience and muddy the waters of legit paranormal investigation.
I would love to see someone post audio, video, or even first hand accounts with real ghost hunting tools.
I know as soon as I get some spare cash and buy some I'll be posting my experiences.
