Remote viewing, mind reading, song revelations, predictions and more... All with an iphone or itouch.

Swipeit is impromptu, can be performed with spectator's phone and no special software is needed.

This manuscript gives you the basic guideline... You can explore further for many more ideas.

This is very direct and organic mentalism.

Hey guys,

I just got this from J Prager, and I really like the method.

The original source for this effect I perform on a weekly basis, but I really like J Pragers take using the IPhone or ITouch.

You can PM J Prager directly and he will fill you in on the details.

The pdf is not expensive at all, and it is very simple and to the point.

Message sent. I LOVE ipod/ iPhone magic. While some people frown upon it, I think it is so powerful for laymen. Especially when its THEIR iPhone. It's shocking.

"Organic", the hottest keyword in mentalism lately...

Some demo video would help a lot...

So 2 weeks after I send you a copy of my effect : Fate .... from T11's Wire. You've got one too. Sounds awfully similar my friend.

I'd love to take a look Jose and see what the differences are within the method ?

I do hope Swipe-it isn't too apt of a name for it.

Cheers,
Prager

It is not similar at ALL.

Not even 1%.

To be fair it is 2% similar... In that it uses an iPhone and it is $3.95. Smile

Swipe it is that clean piece of mind reading which lends itself to jazzing with the method. It allows the performer to connect with the participant's own life in ways which are organic to the situation and can have real emotional impact on the participant.

What you get is a simple idea, a simple method, which is quite contemporary but like classic Mentalism techniques it allows one to go in so many directions. Imagine using it for ******* done with the participant's own phone. It's a revolutionary ******* idea and again makes it totally organic.

I have this. Basically what Jose is giving you is a method to f***e a picture, document, website, list etc on a borrowed or your own iphone or ipod touch (running ios 5).

After that its up to you to decide where you go from there. Be it one a***d or a direct prediction of what they will 'choose' etc. As mentioned there is no set-up or special app required so you can borrow their device (as long as it is running ios 5) and you are ready to go.

For the price I guess you may well think of some good uses for this.

BTW I should mention its the spectator who holds the iphone and makes their own choice.

Hope this helps

You're right Jose it's not the same method, although I can't help but think this isn't thought through enough.

Duplo was great, but this just feels rushed. Your ad copy says no special software is needed... but they need ios5 to be able to do it.

The remote viewing of a picture is fantastic though! It really is worth the price of the download because as long as your iphone has ios5 (which mine does) you can use your own phone. Instead of checking if theirs has ios5.

So yeah in conclusion, if you have an iphone with ios5 on it, and you'd like to be able to remote view a spectators random picture selection. Pick this download up.

Being an owner of FATE, SwipeIt makes an amazing partner in crime with Geraint's effect. Just think of it, after successfully completing FATE, I've often been asked to repeat the effect. SwipeIt allows you to do that - but this time - you can allow the spectator to randomly generate the songs on their song list by swiping. Two methods that help eachother out in my opinion.

Its true that this is a no frills offering by Jose, though, I do not own Duplo (though have read nothing but raves), so I cannot compare to the production value of that recent offering. That being said, it does not need to be flashy. The attached .mov file depicts everything the user should know in terms of handling. If you've owned an iPhone for even a small amount of time, the .pdf file will be plenty.

Also, having used an iPhone for around 3 years now, I can tell you that you DO NOT need iOS 5 to perform this effect. Sure, the way that Jose describes it - you would need the newest software. However, the technique can also be performed with a little tweaking if you do not have the current software. I'll get in contact with Jose and see if its okay if I help people who may have an older iPhone (3G, etc.) that may not be able to put iOS 5 on their phone.

All in all, though I do have a review copy of this effect, I think that the price point was smart at under $5. Even if the production values were higher and this was a "Shot in HD using the coolest Canon SLRs" type of video - the idea still sits very well around $4 and no more than that. In fact, I strongly recommend purchasing this WITH Geraint's FATE on Theory 11's The Wire as well. I don't think they could be any better when utilized together. They're both $4 so for $8 total you have some versatile techniques using borrowed iPhones - that's just a little over the price of a MAGIC magazine.

Cheers,
Justin

Jose,

Sorry I wasn't able to do a review but my phone doesn't have ios5. Sigh. One more reason to get a new iPhone.

Don't worry my friend.

I think you can easily update your iOS.

I was lucky to get a copy of José's new manuscript - it's a simple, neat idea. Combined with good presentation it will definitely get some awesome reactions.

Best regards,
Mike
