I live in a Scottish 1800s house have already had some paranormal things happen, so I was a little curious to see if it would work. Well the words that emitted on my screen, came straight after the other - 'Eye, Infection'. Now at that time I was having trouble with a cyst on my eye that has become infected a few times. I actually had an operation last week to remove it. It then said 'Kristen' my name. There is a radar that is supposed to pick up on a particular energy and then show you on the app. Well I had cold spots in my living room where it was stating.
One of my other friends has tried this app and had similar strange things happen with it. Things that you can't explain. Has anyone ever heard of this app or had similar experiences with anything like this before?
It's quite coincidental you would post this as I was just talking to my cousin a few days ago about trying such an app. The podcast I've been listening to to get in the Halloween spirit was talking about apps like the one you mentioned and how ghost hunters claim that they can often be just as good at communicating with spirits as the expensive gear you might see in TV shows. I don't actually doubt that because either the stuff really works and it's all about spirits being able to manipulate the electronic frequencies, or none of them work at all and it's all hoaxes.
Anyway, I downloaded a couple of the apps and checked them out at work just for fun. As soon as I turned the "ghost radar" on I experienced chills and goosebumps and a feeling of apprehension. Nothing had changed in my warehouse except for using this app, and my warehouse is almost certainly not haunted. That tells me that what these apps really do is trick your brain into subconsciously believing they are working even when it is clear to your thinking brain that they aren't. So essentially we are producing our own frights by tricking part of our brain into thinking we should be sensitive to such things.
Now, this isn't to say that they don't still work, but simply that we can't trust ourselves. In your case those are very specific words to choose obviously. You would have to do more testing to be sure if there was something trying to communicate or if the programming of the app allows it to collect certain data from your phone and it uses that. Have friends test it still using your phones and things like that. When I used my word thing it just kept repeating words that had no meaning or relevance. The coolest one to me is a frequency app that is the equivalent of a "Ghost Box" where it scans through hundreds of frequencies every second and the spirit can supposedly isolate words in order to communicate. I haven't had any success with it but I like the idea and it seems like it should work if it in fact works at all.

"In my opinion, there is a more scientific approach we can take to all hot-button issues. We do this when we stop demonizing the opposing viewpoints or victimizing ourselves, and we acknowledge and account for our own biases and emotions to the best of our ability."
