Topic: Ghost Hunter 1.1 for Android
Message: Posted by: Jon_Thompson (May 3, 2013 04:07AM)
I'm very pleased to announce a ghost-hunting app for Android that truly lives up to its name. Forget chasing random blobs on a screen, and instead track anomalies through real space.

Imagine the scene: you’re conducting a ghost hunt in a graveyard. Your ghost-hunting app is tracking an anomaly. If you walk towards it, shouldn’t its indicated distance become shorter? If you rotate to face it as you track, shouldn’t the display also change to reflect the new angle? That’s what we thought, and so we sat down to design an app that does its job properly and compellingly.

The result is Ghost Hunter 1.1 by Subversive Circuits. No shock graphics, no fake “radar” readouts. Ghost Hunter 1.1 is designed from the bottom up as a professional piece of software. It uses genuine real time GPS tracking and compass data to create the most compelling “real” experiences for your audiences.

Self-explanatory buttons allow you to display a handy grid, zoom the display, show the distance and direction of a tracked anomaly, and circle it for easy identification.

I've uploaded a free demo version. It's fully functional but time limited, with a discrete countdown of about 5 minutes at the top right of the screen. https://play.google.com/store/search?q=subversive+circuits&c=apps

Wouldn't it be great to:

Have Ghosthunter on your Android-tablet, tracking the where-abouts of the ghost, wait until it comes closer... and closer... then point your mobile phone in that direction and take a picture, capturing "a weird and vague something" in the image that 's not supposed to be there.... brrrr, creepy.... can you see that? Is that...? Could it...? YES !!!

That actually sounds like a pretty fun idea. Hmmmm....

If the ghost picture app is on another phone, it would add to the believability.

That's why I said: GhostHunter on tablet.... Photograph on mobile phone.
