Necrophonic is an ITC app used for spirit communication and EVP research.
8 Sounds Banks:
The audio has been mastered in a way to bring out various sound properties .
Using Pro Tools I was able to enhance high, mid, and low range frequencies. I also applied
other filters to create unique sound characteristics to help layer the audio and create an
environment suitable for spirit communication.
The audio itself is made up of phonemes,
partial words, reverse audio, foreign languages, and other parts of speech that can help
spirits communicate. Besides some basic phonetic sounds such as na, no, da, do, di, ma, may, etc.
there are no real words of phrases contained in the banks.
These sounds banks play in a similar
way to that of my other app "Spiritus Ghost Box" but instead of 4 sound banks Necrophonic has
8 active sound banks.
White Noise Sound Bank:
This app also has an optional 9th sound bank called "White noise".
This bank can be used alone or with the other 8 giving you a total of 9 sound banks. This
audio is taken for the internal sounds of the famous DR60 recorder that is known as the
"Holy Grail" of EVP recorders. This is not a White Noise Generator, this is a normal sound bank like the others but this one contains white noise from the DR60.
This app does contain Echo and Reverb audio effects. These have been proven
to be the best effects to apply to ITC sessions. The echo can create audio that can be
manipulated within the echo itself. Echo can also help in live, real time communication by
repeating the audio and allowing you to better hear whats coming through. Reverb can be
applied to the audio to create a spacious sound environment that will enhance audio manipulation.
Added mute switch detection and warning for when no audio can be played
Added scan rate slider
Added random reverse audio of sound banks to vastly increase the sounds of the audio clips
Updated to latest sdks and development software to ensure compatibility with newest devices
Ratings and Reviews
Good but could use some work
So I’ve had this app for about 3 weeks now. The only thing that I found that bothers me is that the sweep speed is still too fast even when I lower it. It can be confusing because you would think to lower it you would move the bar to the left. But no, that speeds it up. Anyways, even at the slowest sweep rate the sounds you hear cut off so quickly that you can’t make out what it’s saying. The echo is horrible. Don’t even turn it on. I would like an option to record so that you can go back and tweak the audio to see if you caught anything. It has some creepy sounds like crackling and whispers which sound spooky but, I mean, it’s inaudible. I’ve had it say my kids names so does it listen to me when I’m speaking and then just repeats common phrases or words? It’s just too fast and whatever you hear cuts off almost immediately so you can’t make it out. Even with the reverb on it’s so hard to make out. Also, the sound is not loud enough. Even at the highest volume and with headphones on, I have to really really put it up to my ear to hear. I’m comparing to VOX app and VOX is so much louder I actually have to turn it down. All in all, It’s a fun app to use. You just have to spend a lot of time with it trying to decipher what it or they are saying. Worth the $10 bucks.

Thanks for the review. I’ll make sure to try and address the issues raised in the next release.
As for listening, I can assure you the app does not listen to anything. In order to do so, it would have to access the microphone and that would require user permissions. The App Store would never allow an app to go around the permissions restriction.
Your other comment about sounds cutting off is to be expected. The app functions by playing sound fragments. When you slow down the sweep rate, you will get lone fragments that sound cut off. The app is intended to function more like a sea of sound so words can come through.
The negative reviews don’t know how this works
First of all, you aren’t talking to your phone and it can’t hear you without giving them express permission to access your microphone, which it doesn’t.
Secondly, I thought it was a flop at first too. My dad had just committed suicide and I’d hoped to talk to him. After twenty minutes of failing, I fell out on his bed and cried. Then the clearest voice yet came through and it was my dad’s. He was sobbing and kept crying out, “ Baby, oh baby. Baby.” Just before it cut out he whispered “I’m sorry.”
That’s when I researched it more. Whether it’s a phone, a hacked radio, a white noise machine, whatever - all have the same level probability of working. Then, you may not have a ghost or spirit near you. They may not want to talk to you. THEY bounce off the words. If it makes no sense, no one’s talking. Or they’re figuring it out. I was in the place my dad died and it took twenty minutes and then just cut out like he was struggling. This app isn’t an On-button for ghost activity. It’s a mediator. You’re also part of the equation. Being open to it, focusing, and remaining respectful all help elevate your chances of inviting a spirit and warming them up to you. If you don’t believe to begin with then you’re just wasting money. You have to be open to possibility no matter what you use in a contact situation.
The audio doesn’t work
The first time downloading this app, the audio was fine and the app worked well. But after a couple days (id say less then a week) there has been an issue with the audio not working. It says “Audio OFF toggle phone’s mute switch to turn audio on” i checked to make sure my audio was on and etc, and it is perfectly fine, but the audio still doesn’t work. I still don’t know if it’s just me and my phone having that problem or it’s the app. I would appreciate an answer back on why this is happening or what I can do to fix it, thank you for your time

That is strange. The audio off warning you are seeing is the app detecting that the audio is muted. There may be other ways that your audio is muted other than the switch. Check your do not disturb option as well. My testing shows this does not mute the audio, but different OS versions my be different. In rare situations, lint buildup in older phones would trick the phone into thinking headphones were plugged in.
If it worked before and no settings have muted the audio,
1) try closing the app completely (swipe up and hold, the. Swipe up on the app)
2) try power cycling the phone/iPad.
