iOS app monitors electromagnetic fields to capture paranormal recordings.

Paranormal Recorder

"It occurred to me that if EVPs are caused by paranormal forces there are likely electromagnetic fluctuations occurring during these communications.

Excelltech's Paranormal Recorder for iOS uses the raw magnetic data from the device's digital compass to trigger audio recording, revolutionizing the hunt for ghostly communications.

"Abnormal electromagnetic fields are associated with most reported paranormal phenomenon," said developer Ben Williams. "It occurred to me that if EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenons, i.e, unexplained ghostly recordings) are caused by paranormal forces there are likely electromagnetic fluctuations occurring during these communications."

Paranormal Recorder only records audio when the electromagnetic fields around the device fall outside of normal limits. Just as a motion activated light helps detect possible intruders, the electromagnetic activator recorder helps the paranormal investigator detect a ghostly visitor. An entire nights worth of recording can be reduced to a dozen minutes of audio that had high electromagnetic fluctuations associated with it.

Since it's release in March of 2009 paranormal investigators have claimed to discover dozens of clear samples of EVP with the app. With the newly released version 3.11 of Paranormal Recorder these recordings can finally be shared and scrutinized by investigators and skeptics alike at the audio sharing site SoundCloud.
