Topic: Favourite Magic App
Message: Posted by: D J Hawkins (Jan 27, 2019 07:27AM)
I know this has been asked before, but since there are so many new Apps appearing, Iíd love to know which one is your current favourite ? I.e. you have the opportunity to perform just one effect to impress a high value client - what would you do ? Since Iím an Apple kinda guy (iPhone Xs Max running IOS 12) Iím interested primarily in iOS compatible Apps. I currently have Menta-list, Digital Force Bag, Rising Card and Mental Killer (and Iím thinking about Toxic+), but would love to hear about any others.

I look forward to your suggestions.

Just got DFB. Now that's my favorite app :D

The Architect of Predictions works great for clients, since you can customize your prediction with the spectator name, or the company logo, or whatever you want to use. It allows you to have multiple predictions in your picture and you end clean, showing your prediction in your real camera roll, at the date you want.

P.S: I'm the developer, so this comment may be somewhat biased. 😜 Users of TAP (aka "AOP" or "The Architect of Predictions"): would you recommend it?

I really like The Architect of Predictions.
But I am partial to Inject - have invested a lot of time in the community and wrote my own add-on for Inject that permits you to send an Email Prediction.
Message: Posted by: cardistry master (Aug 2, 2020 06:11PM)
TAP, wikitest, ithump, voila, cubesmith and mamicube are all great ones. I have other one also but those are the ones I'll use most once this lockdown is over. Also most of those can be done over zoom which is important for now. The remainder force with ithump is mindblowing and allows you to perform a calculator force over zoom. That is one of the best things to perform online I think.

I have to add that The Stranger is an essential purchase for soany reasons. One of which, it will never occur to the average spec that it's an app.

This is probably one of the most enjoyable effects to perform too.

My two favorite apps are:

CubeSmith
The Stranger

Inject used to be my favorite and I still love it, but Iím disappointed that Greg Rostami hasnít been participating in the Inject Facebook group as religiously as before. Itís like heís lost interest in his own app. To be fair, he has bigger things to worry about these days. But, still, I miss his former level of engagement.

Benke Smith (CubeSmith) and Jonathan Levit (The Stranger) are the exact opposite. They both live and breath their respective apps and their ongoing enthusiasm is obvious and contagious.

I own another dozen magic apps that rarely get used. And I think, in general, I wonít be investing in very many magic apps in the future. Iíve already seen too many of them become neglected by their developers. Iím investing more money in physical props and books these days. The one exception is a new app coming from Benke.

I agree The Stranger is among the top few.
And Inject has taken on a new dimension, particularly in this time when we are forced to be ďhands offĒ, with the add-on for EMAIL.

Ithump/Toxic+ is probably my favorite. It has the best customer service and does the most out of any app I have. I also like inject but it doesn't have as good support, needs internet to work and sometimes is unreliable.

I like TAP, does what it has to do and there are several pre-made projects.
iThump/Toxic+ is magnificent and has probably the best (long term) customer support and community when it comes to that type of app. Since I only support material from the true creative individuals I personally steer away from Unifi. Got ethical problems with that.

I personally love DFB. It is so easy to use and there are so many different ways to use it.

If anyone else feels like I do, what other apps would you recommend? I am not a fan of Inject. I tried it and even paid for a 6 hour seminar that they offered but even with that there are a lot of things that just don't work for me. I wish it did but there were just many things that you do that were either impractical and would seem to the spectator like "but why is he doing that?'. Or certain issues like when you take the spectators phone, do what you need to do with it, and then you put it down and the phone from lying down flat goes into sleep mode and therefore the effect just won't work

I just have to say that I made a post about how Inject was not really working for me. After that post, Greg Rostami the owner of Inject reached out to me with a private message offering to help. He just spent some time helping me out with it over the phone and was a huge help! Greg...thank you!! Such great customer service that was!

Since you already have Inject, you should consider [url=https://bit.ly/pepmagic]P. E. P. [/url]
You neednít touch their phone yet they end up with an email ON THEIR PHONE that not only contains your prediction, but includes your contact/marketing information that will travel with the email message as it gets forwarded around.

I have quite a few apps, some which I use more then others. Iíll list my top 3 in terms of which I perform most, and my comments about them;

1 - Inject. Awesome app with so much customisation. Multiple effects possible. Probably the best magic purchase I have ever made! Why? Based on the reactions it gets and the vast number of effects you can do with it. Downside - it takes time to learn, and requires internet.

2 - DFB. Clean and simple way to force anything. Just look at how many magicians use it on BGT! Genius input method. Downside - lots of magicians use it but thatís about it really!

3 - WikiTest - Really strong mind reading - totally hands off, and amazing reactions too. As with Inject, it requires internet. Itís very powerful but it is just one effect. But itís a great effect!!!!

Recent purchases that I havenít used extensively yet in my working set due to COVID include

Picasso Pro, Xeno, Locked and Loaded. I particularly like L and L - like DFB, it doesnít require internet and also has an awesome input method. It can also be customised. Highly recommended. Iím also looking forward to using Xeno, particularly with the new add-on from Felipe Nardi which provides a superb peek method for movies.

Iíd also like to mention Marty - a couple of years ago this was the buzz amongst in the app market, but sadly the upgrades failed and it got reset back to its original version. However, I still use it and itís still very strong.

Anyway, hope this helps
Message: Posted by: ParkinT (Dec 23, 2020 11:08AM)
I concur. You mentioned Inject at the top of your list.
With the [i]adjustments[/i] we are making for COVID have you seen [url=https://bit.ly/pepmagic]P. E. P. [/url]? It permits you to provide the same PUNCH with Inject but through email. Multiple spectators at once, over a 'virtual' interaction.
There are numerous additional effects and capabilities also that take advantage of the "off-screen" nature of Virtual Performance and do not limit you to the finite nature of Injectís input method.

Where most of our performances are remote at the moment, Iíve been wondering if there are any App effects that can be done via Zoom. Iíve concluded itís almost useless doing anything using my phone - the spectators have real difficulty seeing the screen. And any effect using their phone Such as Inject, Realist, Wikitest are at the mercy of internet connections or the spectator screwing everything up by not following instructions.

[url=https://instantcardmagician.com/info]The Instant Card Magician[/url] is ideal over ZOOM.
It was originally conceived and performed in person prior to COVID-19 but quickly and easily adapted to ĎVirtual: performances.

Developed by Myke Phillips, you may want to look at iDeal www.iDealMagic.app - There are some great online routines you can do with it, and in peerson you can peek the selected random virtual card on your Apple watch or PeekSmith. With the app you can Force, Peek, Predict, and the 'random cards' can be from a stack of your choice. Take a look at the videoes on the website!

Ithump is the best over zoom. No internet needed and is very fooling. There are some others I'd reccomend also. Ithump with the remainder force is definitely my favorite though.

For me as owner of the stranger, WikiTest, amalgam, inject 2 and DFB I have to say all are great. DFB gets strong reactions, I love how WikiTest is so clean and easy to learn. The stranger itís just something that goes for me really into a new world, you can do so much with it. If I would select the best 2 I would by the stranger and WikiTest together as the can be combined together and this is a huge effect

I got the app-bug for a while while doing virtual shows. I used to use Telefoto way back in the day, and absolutely loved it... but since it's no more I don't think that counts.

At first glance I really liked Inject, but there have been some things recently that have left a sour taste in my mouth. That said, I still use it in my virtual shows, and there is a routine I'm working on which uses it. If there was better customer support and I was confident it wouldn't just stop working at some point in the future I may rate it as my favorite.

That goes to SimpleDraw I think. I reaaaaallly like this app, being a lover of the drawing duplication plot, and it's great for both virtual shows and person-to-person performances. And the creator is just a swell guy.

Flitch also is amazing. I've yet to really get the most out of it, and the instructions and set up are a bit lacking but I love being able to put my phone down on a table, have someone select a playing card by just naming the first one that comes to mind, and showing that there is only one image in my phone gallery and it is of the playing card named. I'm also using it for a free will type effect which has been a lot of fun. Again, it plays well virtually and in person.

For me that's the main draw for apps: Using them to be able to perform the same effects virtually as I do in my in person shows.

There are others that interest me, but as an android user there isn't as much to choose from.

CAUTION!

The MentalPlay app does not work with Apple iOS 15 !! An update was promised by the developer, but unfortunately no information is given when and if an update for iOS 15 users will be released upon request. Please don't get me wrong, I think the app is great and I don't want to talk badly here, the app is very expensive but cannot even be started, it is useless! as soon as a working update is available, I'll post it here!
