This is the problem with apps they can't be continually updated due to cost so everyone loses out . You are far better off with standard props like coins and cards as they will never disappear like Max and even SMS text by Angelo Carbone never got updated so now rendered pretty useless unless you want old software etc .

The updates do not seem to present a problem for developers such as......... Salah Aaz, Myke Phillips and Greg Rostami!!

Hey guys!

Sorry for the delay in responding to this thread regarding updating Mental Killer for iOS 7. I've had a TON of stuff dropped on my plate in life none of which do I care to go into details about. I now also own a brick and mortar magic shop along with the performing, lecturing, creating, and app development.

Updating to match an OS shift as big as the one from iOS 6 to iOS 7 is not as simple as re-skinning the app. This is by far the most involved update thus far.

Right now the app still functions in iOS 7 just fine - it is simply not a perfect visual match for the new phone screen from Apple. I've used MK in the real world with iOS 7 and the dial pad discrepancy has more or less gone unnoticed. If somebody calls you on it, you can tell them you found an app that allows you to modify your dial pad back to it's former state. It's a matter of conviction.

In regards to pricing apps. Mental Killer when I first released it was $50.00 and you needed a jailbroken iphone. Once Apple approved it for release in iTunes the price dropped down to $20.00. I even gave refunds to those who wanted it regarding the jailbroken version. The app has gone through several price changes but I also produced an ebook and gave that to those who paid the higher price for free and the ones who paid less than $20 had to send me the difference so that everyone would be on a level playing field. In reality it was me who first put an app out for more than the typical $2.99 - $5.99 price. I then released MACAAN aka Card Stats for $60.00 because I am well aware of how powerful it is and it is more than worth it. So is Mental Killer but you can get it for only $9.99 and the ebook is still available as well. Which I also give a free update to when another iteration of Mental Killer is released. I price my apps based on the value I think they provide you as a perfomer. I know they are strong because I use them every day in paid performances to tremendous effect.

You guys all know I try to provide excellent value and service for the money. That's one of the reasons MK has been at it's current price, with the option of in-app purchases. I will probably have another in app purchase to go along with the next update to help generate income to support doing this new update.

As some of you have mentioned - this effect is worth its weight in gold - you'll pay WAY more for other mentalism effects that aren't as practical and that you don't use as often. I have no completion time for this and I am not going to promise any specific date. Those of you that know me know it will get done and done right. Good things come to those who wait. In the meantime rest assured I am well aware of the situation.

I am also going to release Mental Killer Pro eventually. Again this has been a long time coming but will be a monster once it's released.

Best regards,
Max

Any update on the pro version or updating this one?
Hard for me to purchase with all the talk of lost functionality but it sounds like a winner.

Thanks

Now that iOS 7.1 has been released and hopefully Apple is done screwing with the phone app I can start working on the update for Mental Killer. I will let you know how progress is going and also when the update has been submitted to the app store. No promise date but I am still using the prior version every time I perform with total success and no questioning of the interface.

Kind regards,
Max

I am having a ball with Metal Killer.

Using the British Female Voice which is nice and clear.

Don't care for the Male British voice.

The Male US Voice is good too.

I just did the latest upgrade to my iPhone Five S
and MK works fine.

What kind of update are you looking for?

The keypad could look more like the iPhone keypad.

I think it's worth $99. But am glad I paid $9.99

I never got Spanish support despite all the promises of Mr. Krause.

And now with iOS 8 it's a very odd number pad screen...

Wow... $99 in 2015
I also remember $10 - $20.

And the government says that their is no inflation ?
Wonder if they will accept Zumbagua dollars Smile

Nor is it clear if the app works on IOS 8 and the iPhone 6 or 6 plus ?

As far as functionality, the app still works fine on iOS 8 and the iPhone 6, but the interface needs an overhaul to reflect the graphical user interface changes that were implemented on iOS 8. It's still useable though and I doubt most spectator would notice anything.

Hi guys!

We are diligently working on MK 5.0 and I am happy to say that I have aa functioning version for iOS 7 and 8! We still have a ton of work to do but rest assured it's getting done. I promise you that nobody will be disappointed with what's to come including a Pro-Upgrade that allows for you to customize any of your existing effects as well as create your own in your own voice! That's only the beginning...

Best regards,
Max

Max, hope you can add with pebble or apple watch funtion to this new version,because nowadays many APP with add bluetooth and other device to make their effect stronger, and the best part is magician can perform the effect without touching their iphone from beginning to the end of the routine. I hope you can apply pebble to MK.

Hi Peter,

I have new functionality going into 3 of my apps. MK is not one of them that will get this certain type of functionality because it is not necesary and will not improve the effect.

Best regards,
Max

Looking forward to it. Is this a free upgrade for owners of MK 4?
