Topic: PredictionTech now works on iPhones
Message: Posted by: GDGrey (Nov 5, 2012 02:31PM)
An HTML5 version of my app PredictionTech, now compatible with iPhones, is now available at:

Predict one of an arbitrary number of YouTube videos, Wikipedia pages, news articles, IMDB pages, or indeed anything online that you wish, with an index that can be as large as you can possibly handle.

This has been possible for Android users for some time using the PredictionTech app. Now a "universal" version that will work on iPhones is available.

There is not a wallpaper-changing, nor a thumper option in this new web app, but the most powerful and direct effect is available for any user of iPhone 3+ whenever they have a web connection, namely:

"A named or peeked playing card, or other piece of information, appears on their own phone or computer screen, which you do not touch after learning the info. This takes the form of any web page you like, either one of your own design, or a page from a popular site such as Wikipedia."

The original Android app is still available at https://sites.google.com/site/predictiontech/

Cheers all, and a special thanks to those Android users who have supported this project this past year.

Does it need a jailbreak?

No jailbreak needed. I have standard IOS6 and it runs without problems. I really liked the Android version and hope that one day this will be available to IOS.

Thanks again for your kind words Bietfriek!

Sean, this new iPhone version doesn't require a jailbreak, it uses web technologies like HTML and Javascript, not the "native" Objective-C code of iOS. In fact, the iPhone version also works on Android, but there is already a native Android app with more features, cos I can use more hardware features in "native code" than in HTML5 code. That said, the most powerful effect, to my mind, is now available on both platforms.

Cheers Kam! Appreciate it :)

Another couple of example effects will be sent out today to iPhone and Android users alike: "The Mentalist's Gimmicked Web-Clock" and "ESP Card Matching". Check your emails this evening.

Just had a serious look at it...
This is awesome because you can create a megaindex! Within one setup you can create multiple effects/theme's which will make this effect repeatable with different outcomes/themes.

Thanks again Bietfriek. Latest round of updates were sent out recently, so users of Droid and iPhone should be 'on the same page' with the new handling tips and anti-skepticism manoeuvres :)
