Haha! I haven't mentioned it to him. I can imagine his reply and it would contain abusive and industrial language!
I've been giving this a bit of thought. Now, I can't write apps (but I know a man who can). If I were going to construct this app, one of the things I'd make it do is occasionally harvest names from the phone's contact list. I would put in ambiguous words - watch (is it a noun or a verb) mirror (a looking glass or a copied movement) and as many spooky words as I could get in - like slain, haunting, corpse, death and maybe a bit of despair and release. See what I mean? It's like the medium who says, 'I've got someone's mother here - anyone lost a mother?' You make it so open to interpretations - with the scattered contact names - that you'll hit the spot as often as not.

Mind you, if I'd written it and it had come up with something creepy with one of my contact names, I'd still be a bit unnerved!

You're right, it's all nonsense but it still doesn't feel quite right.

I've bought my copy - will you do the same and plunge into a delicious adventure?
