zGhost 2 Review for iPhone and iPod Touch
If you’re incredibly bored or have a penchant for frivolous entertainment, you might like to spook yourself with zGhost 2 by Softeq Development Corporation. In this augmented reality app, you can “capture” ghosts with your iPhone camera. Those out partying with friends (especially drunk friends) might get a kick out of this — well, just maybe.
zGhost 2 lets you “find” specters around you and capture them in photos. Obviously, if you don’t have an iPhone, you’ll need a newer iPod Touch with an inbuilt camera.
Together with typical spooky music, the app works as described. When you’re ready to view ghosts, tap “See Ghosts” from the main menu. The Ghost Camera comes with a radar to show you where the ghosts are, whereupon you have to turn your device until you see them. You can also insert ghosts into pictures from your photo library. From the main menu, select Setup, followed by “Ghost Yourself”. Once you have selected a picture from your photo library, you have to select the brush icon and enter the Ghost Editor. With the brush tool, you can mark the areas within your photo on which you wish your ghost to appear. After you have saved a picture or taken a shot, you’ll be able to find it in your camera roll.
Classified as an entertainment app, zGhost 2 isn’t particularly entertaining to me personally, since I’m neither incredibly bored nor a kid. Of course, there will always be people who find such entertainment apps fun. And if you ever have to deal with any restless kids, this could well be an attention-drawing lifesaver.
Check out zGhost 2 if you enjoy augmented reality apps or if you think you and your friends might have some fun taking pictures with ghosts. zGhost 2 is currently available in the App Store for $0.99.
