Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

Have you ever wanted to be a real life Ghostbuster? Do you think you're too old for trick-or-treating but you still love ghouls and ghosts? Then Spek Trek might be the app for you! Spek Trek is a virtual ghost experience that that uses your phone's GPS to turn it into a ghost-hunting compass.

When the game loads you have the option of choosing 3 game modes. Short which is 15 minutes, a 45 minutes medium length game, or long which is 2 hours. After you choose your game length, an interface similar to Google Maps comes up and starts to display ghosts on the map along with how far they are from you.  Tilt your Android smartphone upright from the flat map mode and your phone becomes a virtual ghost finder. You will literally see ghost floating in your living room! Once you find the ghost there is a net icon on the screen you press to capture the ghost.
