Review: GhostCamera+ turns every iPhone into a spine-tingling device

Insert ghostly images into your photos, either from your photo library or new images.

GhostCamera+ is a fun and, at times, very spooky app that adds different types of ghostly and ghastly afterimages to your photos -- most of the time to great effect. While some of the filters are better than others, there are a few real jewels here, and when cleverly constructed, you can create some remarkably spooky photos directly from the app.

As soon as you start GhostCamera+, you can start taking photos right away or load one directly from your photo library. The interface and design are very basic, but that made the app easy to navigate. After taking or loading a photo, access the filters menu and you can choose any of a number of ghosts, zombies, or other horror-inspired creatures and scenes to lay over your photo. While some are a little campy, others look downright spooky. Hands coming out of your computer screen? Very scary. After adding the effect, images can go directly to your social media accounts for instant sharing with your friends and family, or you can store them for a later time -- Halloween, for example. There are numerous free filters and most of them look pretty good, but there aren't a lot in the way of editing tools.

GhostCamera+ is something of a one tricky pony, but we have to admit: that one thing can be entertaining. It may not be a full image editing tool, but it could be a fun diversion.
