About Icon


For our Ghost Hunter friends this tool will allow you to use your Apple device to listen for EVPs. The curated library of around 2300 words will help you to see what you can't hear.

The estimated accuracy of the data is listed with the translation along with the EMF reading at the time of the capture.

We also show you a live reading of the electromagnetic field around the phone, measured in gauss.

Hold the microphone button to pause detection, this will help you to avoid catching your own conversations, resume detection by lifting your finger.

Don't forget to scroll, your entire session may continue beyond the screen, so scroll down to see the latest results.

The microphone in Apple's devices is very good and you may find that excess environmental noise has an effect on the accuracy of the text returned. What you see on the screen is the best guess for what was said.

You can also change languages in the device settings under GhostTalk. GhostTalk currently supports English, French, Chinese, German and Spanish.

Join our group chat to discuss ghostly things with other users.

If things get a little spooky we recommend turning on some lights and taking a break from the app for a while. :)

Oct 02
Version 4.2

Updated for iOS 13!

Thanks to iOS 13 you can now leave your EVP detection running while you visit the chat!
Speaking of the chat we have rebuilt it from scratch to make it faster and more reliable.

Things that didn't change:
• You can still delete your own chat messages
• You can still block other users or report their messages which will remove the message from your device

Things that did change:
• You no longer have to login to the chat. We want to try to help you protect your personally identifiable information as much as we can.
• You will be asked for a name in the chat when you first post. This is to help other users talk to you. You can change this name in your device settings at any time.
• You will now be represented by a generic icon in the chat. The icon will be a different color on each user's screen. The icon is used to specify when a new message begins.
• GhostTalk no longer needs access to your camera or photos. It will no ask for permission from new users, and if it is enabled for your device you can turn it off. We will not be allowing images back into the chat.
• User counts now work! They will tell you if any other users are using the app at the same time. Keep in mind that they may not be in the chat with you, but posting to the chat will notify them in the chat icon if they are in the EVP screen. This will only tell you about users of this version and above.
• You will only receive chat messages when you are in the app. We will not be notifying you of new messages anymore and new messages will only be added to your chat while you are using the app. We hope that this will keep the conversations moving.
• If someone reports one of your messages you will see a warning icon with the number of reports we have received for you. If you receive too may warnings you will no longer be allowed in the chat.

We hope these changes will make using GhostChat more fun and enjoyable for you. Happy Ghost Hunting!

This update removes the Facebook login from the chat. All users that use Facebook to login to the chat will have to login with a Google account instead following this update. Facebook has shown to have some issues with the security of user data, so we have decided to pull our information from their platform. We apologize for any inconvenience but we feel that this is in the best interest of our users.

If there is another login platform that you would like to see as a replacement please let us know through our support page.

We have also patched a bug that was causing a crash if you were to close the app while in the chat.
