Haunted iPhone App Review!






iOvilus app from Digital Dowsing, available through iTunes for the iPhone


When you deal with the paranormal and supernatural, people usually have definite opinions on the subject and like rear ends, everyone else's one stinks except theirs.  I personally believe in ghosts, not just the ones that I make in the shop either.  I have, seen, heard, smelled, and experienced things that I simply can't explain being of the natural realm;, I'm going to be a little bit more critical of this app because of that reason.

I will tell you a little story about last night when I was on the back screened-in porch (the weather has been nothing less than glorious here lately).  While I was sitting down eating my chicken salad on bibb lettuce, the iOvilus was chatting away merrily now and then in its decidedly British accent.  It kept saying 'branches' more than usual so I asked aloud, "what about branches?" These words followed:

Branches
Behind
Iron
round
match
nice

What the *&#^$?  Then, it suddenly kind of hit me...THIS was directly behind me...

I had moved my iron rebar bottle tree filled with ceramic jack-o-lanterns into the screened-in porch and it was directly behind me.  The pumpkins are round, lit with a match and the limbs of the rebar tree are indeed branches.

Chilling.  And this is a true story, I'm not making this up.  The names Frank and Monica kept popping up as well as happy yells.  The owners of the house I live in were not named Frank nor Monica.

The only thing or two that I have issue with is the voice is sometimes hard to understand and there is NO screen showing the words as shown on the picture above; I would suppose that is in the works.  Otherwise, this is a fun app.  Yes, sometimes you get gobbledygook, but you never know.  Maybe Frank and Monica just want someone to acknowledge their presence, maybe it was all an accident, who knows?

I would definitely recommend this app.  I think it was 99 cents.  Even if you don't have an experience like mine, it's still fun to listen to it and try to figure out what it's trying to say.

And I guess that whoever it is that spoke through it, likes the tree though, that's a good thing I would think!

Is this the new Ouija board?!

I don't like these kinds of app.
