A new app has just been launched - Magic SMS.


"Magic SMS is the coolest effect I've seen in years! Trust me you'll be texting everyone about this... Amazing!" - Dynamo

"When the whole world sends an SMS, Magic SMS is the perfect organic effect to do. Brilliant! Diabolical!" - Greg Rostami

"This is the most creative use of the iPhone and it's apps I have seen so far. No doubt this will set a trend for all to follow. Pure genius!" - Daniel Young

"Such a cool trick and no one will ever suspect you are running an app. It really is a fooler. The best magic app out there. Congrats!" - Simon Grant



Imagine a magic app that does not look like you are running an app...

Imagine a magic app that creates powerful mind reading magic...

Imagine a magic app where you do not touch the iPhone...

Imagine no more.

Introducing Magic SMS... Mind Reading via Text Message.


The Effect: You tell your friend that you know someone called Simon who is psychic and that you want to put him to the test. You ask your friend to freely think of any colour and then to make it even more difficult to think of any playing card as well. Nothing is spoken or written down.

You send a text message to Simon asking him to guess what your friend is thinking of. You then turn off your phone and put it aside – NEVER touching your iPhone AGAIN.

While you are waiting for the reply, out of curiosity and for confirmation you ask your friend what he has thought of. You have just about finished your chat when all of a sudden, your iPhone alerts signalling a new text message. Psychic Simon has replied.

You instruct your friend to to pick up the phone as you don’t want to touch it. A preview of the reply is shown on the lock screen. When the full reply is read, your friend sees that Simon has correctly guessed both the freely thought of colour and playing card. Amazing!

An alternative presentation will allow your friend to write and send the SMS message. In this presentation, you don't touch the phone at all. Wow!


  • Easy to do but strong in magic.
  • Uses a never before used principle in iPhone app magic.
  • No voice activation, G-Sensor use, icon swiping or motion activation.
  • No masking or hiding of the screen. Everything is done openly and fairly.
  • You NEVER touch the phone again once the text has been sent.
  • Also once you know what colour and card your friend has thought of you STILL never touch the phone.
  • No charges to send or receive SMS messages.
  • App can be fully customised to use any name for sender and receiver of SMS.
  • A free choice of ANY colour and ANY playing card – a total of 530 possible combinations.
  • SMS reply will be in English so app works fine in UK, USA, Australia etc. Other language support in future updates.


If you like it, please rate and support the app.

Bought it, used it a few times already, love it!

Highest recommendation!

As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

Great job Angelo! I use this right after Mental Killer if they ask me to repeat the effect. Extremely clever!

Good idea Max. Therefore if I get asked to repeat Magic SMS then I could follow with Mental Killer Smile What a good combo heheh! They could both involve the same person (apparently).

Great Ben. Glad you are happy with it.

Derren Brown seems to love it. He posted it on his twitter and facebook page. That's nice!

Hi Angelo,

It doesn't get any better then getting an endorsement from Derren Brown.

Is there any way of customizing the response message from "your psychic friend".

The reason why I ask is because I want to tie in Magic SMS with iPredict.

Hence the performance would allow one to repeat contacting the psychic with a different method and a different outcome (voicemail and SMS message).

I've got one other idea about Magic SMS that I'll share with you in private. This idea would allow the psychic to know the name of the spectator as well as the color and the card.

AWESOME app . . . I wish you the best,
Greg Rostami

Very cool app. Perfect as texting is the way so many communicate. This is so fair as the message comes into the phone and you never touch it. Recommended.

Just downloaded this and took a cursory look. Definitely like it at first glance, and look forward to delving into it. Certainly a great app to use in conjunction with Metal Killer and iPredict!

Nice job Angelo!

Will this ever be updated for an iPod Touch as well - using something different than the standard texts?

Jprace, someone told me on another forum that they do the trick on an ipod touch and just pretends its an iphone. He has a leather case around it to disguise the thinness of the ipod.
