I think some fringe science items might be able to help detect the paranormal.
There are ghost boxes, devices that cycle through multiple frequencies so fast they shouldn't be able to get any audible signal out of any
They spit out mostly beeps and clicks but will spit out words, sort of like a live version of EVP.
From what I've read they don't stay on a channel long enough to pick up a word, as each click is a channel change.
The words come in between multiple frequencies.
Since the frequencies are random it would be hard for a combo of AM and FM channels to throw together the right phonemes at the right time to make a
There are EMF detectors, proximity detectors.
Ghost traps that emit 2 EM fields out of sync with each other that are supposed to attract, empower and trap spirits.
Is all of this real, IDK, but I hope so as the paranormal fascinates me.
That said, do I think iphone/smart phone apps are legit?
Can our phones do things they weren't designed to, push the limits by hackers and crackers tinkering with them.
The apps you can get for free certainly can't do that...
Not without messing with your phone so much it won't work right.
Another reason I think they don't work, check the permissions.
I've looked at these apps out of curiosity.
Most want permission to know "when you are on the phone, what number you are calling, your number and how long the call is".
Location all the time even when the app is off.
Ability to turn on and record with the camera and microphone at any time even when the app is off.
Some even want permission to give you fake data when you use your GPS feature.
That's right either tell you, you aren't where you are, or move your destination and take you where they want you but tell you it's the address you
Even check our email, browsing histories, and record passwords.
There are more but those are the ones I remember off the top of my head.
You have to ask yourself, why would apps that are designed to help us find the unexplained be so intrusive?
The answer is they wouldn't, these are apps made by data mining companies looking to mine data to sell to companies.
That or they are made by actual phishers, or pharmers to do actual financial harm.
In my opinion, if you want to look into the paranormal get a group of your friends together or find a group online.
Save up your money and slowly buy real equipment.
Watch out for so called paranormal apps, and alwasye read the permissions.
