An Augmented Reality Collection of Ghosts and Ghouls

Disclosure – SCM (SocialCafe Magazine) was provided FREE product(s) to complete this review.

Horrible Hauntings – This exciting new book brings to life – quite literally – 10 famous hauntings from the annals of history.

Using interactive augmented reality to enhance the images on the pages, readers are able to see and interact with 3-D ghosts, which appear to come alive and can be manipulated by the viewer.

Lush illustrations of famous historical hauntings introduce readers to some of the most notorious and chilling ghosts throughout the ages.

The Headless Horseman, the Flying Dutchman, Bloody Mary, the Amherst Poltergeist, and the princes in the Tower of London are some of the eerie apparitions that inhabit this book in a totally new way as readers interact with the illustrations on the pages.

We recently got a chance to read this book and to view it on both the iPad and the Android. The book is very interesting and perfect to get for Halloween this year. We loved how the book came to life after it was viewed from either device. The app is so well done that the only thing missing is the sound, which we hope it will be available soon. The book itself is very interesting with ten stories about different ghosts. Each story will bring chills and thrills to you especially when paired with the FREE app.
