Theory of Operation (Only for nerds) ...
It has been reported that paranormal activity is evidenced by sounds inaudible, or barely audible, to the human ear. Animals, whose hearing is more acute at higher frequencies than ours, are able to detect supersonic sounds, generally above 12-15 kiloHertz or so. For example, dogs are reported to behave oddly during supernatural events. Sounds of very low frequency, less than a hundred Hertz or so, are normally felt rather than heard by humans. The built-in microphone circuitry in most handheld devices is designed to detect frequencies in the audio range, but there is some residual response from the circuitry at the very low (subsonic) and very high (supersonic) frequencies.
Ghostroid uses fast software-based Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filters to measure the level of sub- and super-sonic sound pressure waves arriving at the microphone. It also measures the audible sound level. The three ranges are shown on the Ghostroid display via three meters, which move dynamically and are updated several times a second. The Para Normal Quotient (PNQ) is calculated from a formula that sums the sound levels in the sub- and super- sonic ranges, and subtracts the audible range value. This yields a number which increases as the sub- and super- frequencies (which are difficult or impossible for us to hear) increase, as compared to the audible frequencies.
The PNQ value is shown by a set of concentric bands at the centre of the display. High PNQ values may be caused by a variety of events: Low frequency rumbling (e.g. from heavy trucks or machinery), High frequency noises (e.g. dog whistles, or keys jangling) as well as Supernatural phenomena (please don't drop your Android when you run away in fright!)
Ghostroid is a port to Android of the well-established "Pocket Ghost" application for Windows Mobile. Although I personally remain sceptical about the existence of paranormal activity, and the effectiveness of this application to detect it, I have received several reports over the years of Pocket Ghost being successfully used by paranormal investigators. Here are a couple of quotes:
1) "I have used the pocket ghost program on my I-mate Jasjam and in all cases the Sub-sonic and Super-sonic reading peaked at 85 to 90 and did not drop down until the visions (or what ever they were) had gone."
2) "I have seen your program successfully used by a professional parapsychologist during an investigation in London."
3) "I am a member of several paranormal groups and investigate the most paranormally active sites within the U.K. On one such investigation a parapsychologist was using your 'Pocket Ghost' to great effect."
Change your device to a motion detector, or remote surveillance camera or even spy cam with motion detection functionality, you can also detect motion for other apps such as Tasker or Automagic
Program uses device's built-in camera so effects can be unsatisfying, reaction time depends on device performance and frame size, maximum and minimum size of recorded frames depends on the device.
● save images captured when motion is detected
● upload captured images to FTP server
● post images on HTTP server (for advanced users, will require script that will receive image from app)
● send an EMAIL with captured image
● sound when motion is detected
● select which camera to use, front or rear
● adjustable detector sensitivity and resolution
● change image resolution recorded by detector
● set active zone, motion will be detected only within the zone
● adjust exposure compensation and exposure lock, not all devices support these features
● can work when screen is switched off, at least it should
● event counter, log
● profiles for settings
● change image destination folder
● send notifications to other applications such as for example Tasker, when it detects movement
● control detector by other applications such as for example Tasker or Automagic
● ability to control detector by Broadcast Intent
● set how many events, will trigger reactions
● print event time and date on every frame
● widget to quickly enable or disable the detector
● time lapse function
● temporary storage feature
example PHP script for HTTP upload: http://programy.jastrzab.com/help/upload.txt
● To use widget you need to move program to internal memory
● Default position is when the device lies on the longer side
Permission Read Phone State is used to detect incoming call, and silence alarm when it`s switched on
The latest version supports all the countries of the world!
The workflow of the application differs from the hardware radar detector. Hardware radar detector - is a passive receiver that does not block the signal to which it is set, but simply notify the driver of the presence in the field of the radar radio interference.
This application works differently, it uses a database of hazards previously detected by other users. For example, if the application is informed about mobile ambush, it means that at this point can probably be mobile ambush.
Any user can add new hazard to shared database. Also user can influence on rating of hazard (when user get danger alert he can define whether danger exists or not in fact).
The application plays the sound and shows hazard on the map and distance to this hazard.
If you are connected to the internet you will be able to monitor the traffic jams.
There is a feature update the database of the hazards.
The application may run in the background (even when the screen is off), just enable option "Use speech when hazard detected".
To start monitoring hazards just press "On" button in the left bottom screen corner.
★★★ Features ★★★
★ Night mode adjustment on screen
★ 3D tilt on map support (3D buildings)
★ Map auto zoom and rotation map along the way
★ Dashboard with current speed
★ 140 000 active hazards POIs around the world (check your country in FREE version of this APP at first)
★ Daily database updates!
★ Support voice alerts
★ Support of working in background or with other Navigation APPs
★ You can add their own POI to shared database
This app measures magnetic field value using the built-in magnetic sensor that is built into your device. The magnetic field level(EMF) in nature is about 49μT(micro tesla) or 490mG(milli gauss); 1μT = 10mG.
If there is any metal in the area, the strength of the magnetic field should increase. Sometimes, this app used to find electrical wires in walls (like a stud finder) and iron pipes in the ground.
Usage is simple: Open this app on your device, and move it around. The magnetic field level will constantly fluctuate. That's it!
A lot of ghost hunters had downloaded this app, and they had experimented as a ghost detector.
The accuracy depends entirely on the sensor in your device. Note that the magnetic sensor is affected by electronic equipment (TV, PC, etc.) due to electromagnetic waves.
If this app does not work properly, it may mean that your phone's sensors are damaged, broken or non-existent. To initialize the sensors, point your phone up towards the sky and move it in a figure 8 pattern. Especially, a view cover with a magnet or a leather case with a magnetic snap can cause unwanted results.
Lastly, this app cannot detect gold, silver and coins made by copper. (They are classified as Non-ferrous that has no magnetic field.)

Electromagnetic wave analyzer detects Electromagnetic wave as a form of graph.
It uses the magnetism sensor of smartphone.
Especially, it analyzes wavelength of its sensor to the way of originative algorithm.
If magnetism sensor’s sensibility is higher, it can detect wavelength in more long distance.
* It can find electromagnetic wave occurring from the equipment. However, you can’t expect the function of program like expensive measuring equipment.
* There's a chance to make a momentary error because of your smartphones electromagnetic wave.
How to operate
Install your smartphone on the stable place.
You can make sensibility of this program higher until you can see the sign of “stable”.
(Samsung is high, SKY is low, SONY is high)
Install your smartphone where you doubt the occurred place of Electromagnetic wave.
* Do not move, wait a minute and then check the results.
Operating error notification
Depending on the application, there may be not exactly the case. Three main causes.
1. Cell phone itself or defective sensor characteristics
2. When moving a mobile phone (can not be used in situations where the absolute motion)
3. Communicate with the relay itself at the moment (the moment of communication internally at regular intervals by operating error propagation)
What is electromagnetic wave?
There are a lot of story about electromagnetic wave take a harmful influence to our body.
Among the many kind of electromagnetic wave, most influenced electromagnetic waves are extremely low frequency (ELF), very low frequency (VLF), Radio Frequency (RF) and microwave.
electromagnetic waves are reported in the paper as the cause of headache, blurred vision, leukemia, brain tumor, brainwave confusion, circulating system disorder, destroy generative function of men, VDP syndrome and eye diseases.

Ever wondered why your smartphone screen doesnt turn off automatically when it should have, the screen wakes up all of a sudden or you find your phone battery drained even when you exited apps and turned off the screen? This might be due to wakelock holding apps. ”Wakelock Detector” helps you to detect battery draining apps in your Android phone by checking wakelock usage history. Now you can easily find out what keep your phone awake and drain your battery when it is idle!
“Wakelock” is a mechanism of power management service in Android OS, which can be used to keep CPU awake (Partial wakelock) and keep the screen on(Full wakelock). Applications which use wakelock privilege improperly leads to situations where the CPU or phone screen stays active without user's knowledge and thus causing dramatic battery drain.
“Wakelock Detector” shows wakelock usage statistics for all applications, which ever held wakelock since boot. By default it displays CPU wakelocks sorting by the longest usage time. Further, you can choose Screen wakelock type to see screen related wakelocks. For instance, if your screen is keeping on even after screen timeout or your screen turns on randomly by itself, then you can choose Screen wakelock type on the top (Brightness icon) to see which apps are using screen wakelock. Furthermore, if you are interested in currently running applications then you can change sorting type to "Active" which shows active running applications on the top. For further details please refer to FAQ inside Settings.
# shows both CPU wakelock (Partial wakelock) and (Full wakelock) ;
# merges wakelocks of corresponding app into one expandable view for better user experience;
# currently active running applications are shown in red color;
# allows easy sorting options by Running state , Wakelock time and Alphabetical order;
How to use:
#1 Charge your phone above 90% and unplug cable (or just reboot the phone)
#2 Give it a time (1-2 hours) to accumulate some wakelock usage statistics
#3 Open “Wakelock Detector”
#4 Check the apps on the top, if they show very long wakelock usage time then you found the cause of your battery drain!
We are working on improving the performance of the “Wakelock Detector” by adding new features regarding wakelock issues users usually face. We are trying to follow up all your comments. And we know that the application is not ideal yet. We would appreciate if you send us email before giving negative comments in the Play Store. Your feedbacks are always welcome!
