This week’s Freaky Friday app is one that could well be the difference between life and death. Or, more precisely, death and death. Or, even more precisely, it’s a lot of old nonsense that doesn’t mean a thing.
Ghost Radar Classic is a ghost radar; not quite sure why it’s classic, though. It displays a spinning, pretend radar dial, and can, apparently, detect the presence of paranormal phenomenon. You’ll no doubt be glad to know that there are no ghosts, ghouls or poltergeists in my house at the moment, although I’m keeping the app on just in case.
For some reason, the app also keeps saying words at me. It just said â€œwasâ€. I don’t know what that means. Apparently, Ghost Radar Classic uses the technology in your phone to read the environment around you for the tell tale signs of the paranormal. Still no ghosts here, which is a bit disappointing to be honest.
There are plenty of numbers on the screen, and they keep changing, but the app doesn’t explain what they actually mean. Maybe I am surrounded by ghosts, maybe this post will be my last message to the outside world before I’m slaughtered by unseen terrors from beyond the grave.
If you’re the sort who wants to know whether there are ghosts in your vicinity, then Ghost Radar Classic is almost certainly the app for you. If you’re of a slightly more rational bent, then maybe you should consider downloading something more useful, like an app that just puts random numbers on the screen. Oh. Wait.
Now the app is saying â€œalsoâ€ at me. There are still no blips on the radar though, so I think I’m safe. Wait. What was that? Oh good grief, it’s coming out of the walls! It’s coming out of the walls!
