So I just got Iforce yesterday from the app store and I must say wow, what a great program!

so I was wondering has anyone cam up with some interesting ideas for the presets, or maybe some cool presentations?

here is one of mine...
I ask a spectator to imagine herself taking a trip to anyone of of the 7 continents..
I draw a prediction on the iphone doodle app.
exit the app and place the phone face down..
then I ask her what contintent did she visit... and bamn! I reveal the prediction accordingly..

Wow weapon . . .

You're already being very creative with iForce.

I think we should use your thread as a sharing resource for other ideas.

Thanks alot! The possibilities are endless..

just remember there are 8 planets in our solar system.. Pluto recently was discovered not to be a planet.. hmmm 8 seems like a good number! ::wink::

I'm very curious to hear the ideas of others! so keep them coming!

Hi weapon,

I just posted this on another thread on the Café. So I thought I should post this for you here as well.

Here is something REALLY COOL that you can do with the 3 coin preset. I do this with 3 old style quarters (the ones with the eagle on the tail side).

I put my left hand face down on the table and ask them to put the coins, one at a time under my hand, while I look away.

Every time they slide the coin under my hand I reposition it while saying, "I'll put this all the way to the left, so we'll have room for the other coins."

Under the cover of my hand, I rub the top of the coin with my right index finger to FEEL if it's heads or tails.

After the last coin, I immediately flip the iPhone over, and very DRAMATICALLY raise my left hand off the table to show the coins.

This is a repost from another thread:

Here's an idea just in time for a Halloween party:

Ask your victim if they happen to know their blood type.

If they do, you show that you knew it as well.

"You smelled like an AB-," you say as you lick your lips, exposing the barest flash of fangs as you do so.

:devilish:

YEAH Philemon,

Thanks for reminding me of that one. Just in time for Halloween.

While we're on the Halloween topic . . .

You ask, "Of all the scary movies during Halloween, who scared you the most? Freddy, Jason, etc . . .

Keep em coming guys . . . this is great.

I've been doing a coin thing, predicting a coin in someone's pocket, or that they think of. Luckily, there are 4 main coins that people carry here in the US, a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter. I have 50 cent and $1 options, just in case someone tries to get smart.

I had an idea that would probably work well for kids, having them choose their favorite of the 7 Dawrfs. You can add Snow White as an 8th option. Heck, for girls, you could probably have a preset full of various Disney Princesses. I'd wager you could make a preset with all of the common ones.

I've also been having great success with revealing whatever day of the week someone is thinking of.

Loving this app!

I just got back from the Apple store. I LOVE performing iForce for Apple store employees.

I had them point at any Apple product they wanted to in the store, either computer or iPod . . . In fact I made the preset while I was standing there, it took less then 2 mins and I sorted all Apple products from small to large.

Surprisingly all the Apple store employees think I'M doing the magic and the iPhone is just "Pen-n-Paper". That is just so weird for me. I would have thought that THEY would be the first ones to suspect the iPhone, but the way that I present it, they don't have a clue.

Ok, since we're exchanging ideas, I'm gonna tip another one of my favorite presets. This is something I showed Kevin when we where in NY. I want to share this with everyone.

Months of the year . . . How do you get 12 months to fit in 8 spots?! Here is the patter:

"I want you to think of the month of your birth. Really concentrate . . . I'm having a tough time with this one . . . concentrate on the FIRST LETTER PLEASE."

So my preset is (in order of appearance)
J, Feb, M, A, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec

Jan, June, July are all "J"
March & May are "M"
April & August are "A"

So I have a 5 out of 12 chance of getting the whole month. If you present this right, it gets great reactions; especially because it's personal information.
BTW . . . Girls REALLY like the month performance. Smile

You can do this with astrological signs as well:

A - Aries, Aquarius
Taurus
Gemini
C - Cancer, Capricorn
L - Leo, Libra
Virgo
S - Scorpio, Sagittarius
Pisces

I've always used a pocket index for the close-up version of my own "Duplicity" effect. That pocket index is now officially retired. IForce is cleaner and less of a hassle.

And judging by the way this thread is going, some greedy b@st@rd is going to ask this eventually, so it might as well be me: Greg, any plans for a 12-out version?

If your doing the Planet effect... here is a nice mneumonic!


Remember that Mercury is small and fast so it is the FIRST of the two "M" planets.
My M = Mercury
Very V = Venus
Easy E = Earth
Method M = Mars
Just J = Jupiter
Speeds S = Saturn
Up U = Uranus
Names N = Neptune

My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Names....

again Pluto isn't a planet

All these ideas are phenomenal . . .

I just posted this on another thread on the Café, but here's another quick tip.

When you put the iPhone down on the table in front of you, if you're right handed, put it at a 135 degree angle ( like \ ). If you're left handed then a 45 degree angle ( like / ). This really helps you pick up the iPhone in a very comfortable and quick way.

In contrast, if you put your iPhone in front of you at 90 degrees ( like |) then your wrist has to bend in an uncomfortable way when it comes time to pick it up.

may the Force be with you,

Something else I haven't tried yet, but just thought of and created the preset for: an impeccably clean, no-fuss version of Dr. Bill's "Subliminally Squared." It's a little tight fitting it on the screen, but it does work, and turning it to landscape orientation helps. Look forward to trying it out tonight.

I just used iForce as a Mental Epic force tonight at my daughter's birthday party. I used an 8 sided die and before anyone rolled I said that I was going to write one of the predictions before I let anyone know what I was doing. Then I load the 1-8 number preset and table the iPhone.

On the first piece of paper I write my prediction, "(Name of last person) will roll what I wrote on my iPhone". So this becomes my "known force" that I really don't even know yet.

I have 2 or 3 people roll the dice as I write down predictions beforehand and put the paper in a cup as per the standard Mental Epic method. The last person is taken care of with the iForce.

This played very well tonight.

Hello Jedi friends that use the iForce,

The first of the three missing videos went up last night.

Please make sure you scroll down the video list to see all 8 videos . . . The first video is the iForce Teaser video and the other 7 are instruction videos.

I'm going to finish the other 2 videos by tonight.

I'm very very sorry about the delay, but there's been so much going on in my life these days. By tonight everyone will have ALL the instruction videos.

take care,
Greg Rostami
