Hello friends,

We are now working on the next evolution of iPredict.

It's called iPredict Pro.

Normally I wouldn't start talking about any of my new products before it's ready, but this time I really want to know what your opinion is about what we're working on.

Here are a few of the features of iPredict Pro:

* iPredict Pro will be available in the US, UK, Canada, France, Italy and many other countries (but not ALL countries . . . sorry)
* iPredict Pro will only use ONE number. You can choose (on the fly) if that number is YOUR mobile number or another number (that other number is always constant).
* iPredict Pro will cost $99.99
* The service costs $15 to $20 a year (most magicians will be around $15) . . . you can cancel the service ANY time.
* You can customize iPredict Pro to use your voice greeting messages as well as your SMS text reply messages.
* As with iPredict+ you'll have up to 75 outs with a single, motivated touch (I'm working on a way of having MUCH more)
* iPredict Pro will be first available on Android then iOS (Android version should be done within a month)

Here's a typical performance:

As you're talking to a potential client . . .
"Let me leave you my number in an unusual way . . . please dial my number on your phone before we start."

The spectator dials YOUR existing mobile number on their phone.

"This morning I had a strange feeling that I would meet you. I recorded my voicemail greeting about THIS exact moment. Whisper any number between 1 and 50."
"They whisper 49".

"Call my number." You give your phone to the spectator. Your phone rings.
"Decline the call so it goes to voicemail."

Your voicemail then reveals in YOUR OWN VOICE their chosen number!!

The above performance is a simple example of the MANY effects that you'll do with iPredict Pro.

After the performance your spectator (or the object of your affection ;-) ) has YOUR number on their phone.
Also, since they called you, you have their caller ID on your phone.
If you're performing for someone famous, you can ask them to leave a message about how amazing you are.

iPredict Pro is NOT a toy. This is a serious tool for professional magicians that want to promote their services in a very magical way, that USES THEIR phone number.


I would love to hear your thoughts about pricing and features that you'd like to see in this upcoming product.

I can't wait to release this,
Greg Rostami

Sound great! I think professional Apps should charge more like any professional routine and not like an inexpensive iPhone game. Bravo!

Well, well. Greg! I am sitting here smiling ear-to-ear about this. Yes, $99 is a lot of money for an app, but it sounds like it could be worth it. Very cool thinking! I hope it's avaialable soon.

Greg, I went back and reread this because I am so intrigued. Can you elaborate how a performance would work through SMS? Thanks!

Hi Fred,

Thank you for your interest.

The SMS performance will be performed by asking your spectators to text the psychic (or any other person, other than you).

Hence an SMS performance would be:

"I want you to text my friend Christen . . . but before we begin please input her number on your phone."
Spec enters Christen's number on their phone (BTW this number is ALWAYS the same)

"I want you to text her 'What am I thinking?' but don't hit send yet".
They compose the text message.

"Whisper any card in the deck". They whisper "7 of Clubs"
"Hit send on your phone now".

After a delay of about 20 seconds they get a reply from Christen . . . "You're thinking of the 7 of Clubs!"

I hope that answers your question.

cheers,
Greg Rostami

We are getting closer and closer to releasing iPredict Pro.

Are there any feature requests from my existing iPredict+ customers?
What do you guys think about the price?

Your input can change the way iPredict Pro will end up.

So, If you have ever wanted to have a say in a professional magic app, now is the time to put in your two cents.
Your input will be very much appreciated.

magic on,
Greg Rostami

Greg,

Will this be an update to iPredict+ and all one would need to do is update the app OR will it be a separate purchase?

Greg, enjoyed meeting you at Magic Live. Have been using iForce and iPredict since they were first released. Would it be possible for the user to customize some of the 75 outs in iPredict Pro in the same way as one can customize the 8 outs of iForce? If so, iPredict Pro would definitely be worth the extra $119 first year investment. If not, options I would wish to purchase on iPredict+ are: the five standard ESP symbols and a sixth infinity symbol (as in Craig Filicetti of ProMystic's MD cube), currency, colours and places (capital cities, countries). Love your work.

Hi Stephen,

The 75 outs of iPredict Pro can be customized.

As far as the per year price, it looks like it's going to be around $15 a year.

ESP symbols, currency, colors, and places can ALL be done with iPredict Pro.

stay tuned,
Greg Rostami

Thanks for your interest guys.

It looks like the iOS and Android versions are in a race . . . At this point I'm not sure which version will be done first.

This will be the first time I've released an app on both platforms at approximately the same time.

As we get closer to the release of iPredict Pro here are a few additional details:

First, iPredict Pro is the result of tremendous research, on a global scale, for a cost effective solution for most of the big countries.

iPredict Pro works by you purchasing a phone number in one of the supported countries (see below).
The cost of that number is $12/year (no taxes). You can cancel at any time.
The cost of using iPredict Pro is $0.01 for every performance. Hence if you perform iPredict Pro 300 times a year that's $3 plus the base $12 which equals $15/year.

The list of supported countries are:

USA - Voice & SMS
Canada - Voice & SMS
United Kingdom - Voice & SMS
Italy - Voice ONLY
Poland - Voice ONLY
Austria - Voice ONLY
Belgium - Voice ONLY
Denmark - Voice ONLY
Finland - Voice ONLY
France - Voice ONLY
Ireland - Voice ONLY
Netherlands - Voice ONLY
Sweden - Voice ONLY

If your country is not on this list, that means that, at the present time, you can not get a local phone number that will support iPredict Pro.
The service that iPredict Pro uses is expanding the countries that they support every day.
So if you don't see your country on this list, it may become available in the future (I'll let you know when it does).

Obviously, you're welcome to purchase a phone in any of the countries that are supported. The only problem is, you or your spectator will be making a long distance call/sms every time you perform iPredict Pro.

The countries that say "Voice ONLY" unfortunately only support voice calls . . . NO SMS.
I'm sorry about that, but I'm limited by what the service provider has made available for these countries.

The reason for these limitations is, EVERY country has a different set of laws for the access of the phone system for voice or SMS.

Let me know what you think. We are getting closer and closer every day.

Thank you for the update! This is going to be FANTASTIC! I do have some questions about the phone number that you purchase...will my phone ring like normal with my TRUE number AND with the purchased number? In order for it to ring with the purchased number, will I need to have an app open or will it ring anytime they call it back? Will it only ring if you are on WiFi? Will you be able to pick your area code for this number to match the area you live in?

Sorry for all the questions, but the spectator feeling like this is REALLY YOUR number is what can make this ultra-deceptive.

Thanks!

Hi FredNario,

Your mobile phone will function as it has always . . . nothing will change.
You'll be able to decide if you want your voicemail to be picked up by iPredict Pro or not (you can turn this on and off INSTANTLY).

If you let iPredict Pro's server answer your number's voicemail then anyone can call YOUR mobile number and they will experience the magic.

You will use your NEW purchased number as the number for your friend/psychic . . . this number will NEVER change.

You don't have to have any app open for this to work.

You need a connection to the internet (wi-fi or anything else) to have iPredict Pro set the correct response for the voicemail or text message (the app will give you feedback showing that it made connection to our servers and it succeeded).

You will be able to pick any area code to match the area you live in.

The spectator will know this is your number because they are really calling YOU. If you perform iPredict Pro for a member of the family that has your mobile number on their phone, the trick still works flawlessly.

Please keep in mind that you don't have to change your phone number to use iPredict Pro . . . you are using YOUR EXISTING PHONE NUMBER.

Here's another typical performance . . .

"Hi Mom, I had a dream last night about our family visiting an exotic foreign country."
"My dream was SO vivid that I changed my voicemail when I woke up."
"Here's a list of 30 exotic countries, why don't you point at a country."

Your mom points at Norway . . . "I don't believe it; my dream was REAL . . . Mom, please call my phone".

Your mom calls your mobile phone (she has your number on her speed dial), your phone rings, your mom ignores the call on your phone so it goes to voicemail.

Your voicemail reveals you had a dream about your family traveling to Norway!!

I am very excited to share this with you.

I love performing organic magic for people that don't know I do magic.

I just performed iPredict Pro for the cash register girl at our local pho restaurant.

Here's how the performance went:

"My friend Esmeralda (yes; Esmeralda is BACK) is going to open a psychic office. She's doing free readings on the phone. She's REALLY good . . . do you mind helping her by giving her a quick call?"

The girl agreed. The girl had the restaurant's land line phone by her side, so I said "Since she has my number, call her on your phone, so she doesn't think I'm calling."

As I'm writing Esmeralda's number, I pretended that I've forgotten the last three digits. "Hold on, let me look up her number".

iPredict Pro was already running on my phone. I brought my iPhone out of my pocket and turned it on, found Esmeralda's contact, and finished writing the last few digits. I then set my iPhone on the side.

"You're gonna call her in a minute but first, since she does readings from playing cards, write any card you like on the paper, but please don't speak your card".

She wrote "6 of hearts".

I picked up my phone and said "As you can see from her photo, she's a young girl . . . just getting started in this business". I then turned off the phone and put it back in my pocket.

"Call her now . . . When she picks up the phone she'll ask you about your card, and give you the most AMAZING reading you've ever had".

She dialed the digits on her landline phone . . . held the phone to her ear, and when she heard Esmeralda's voicemail reveal her card, she had the STRONGEST reaction that I have EVER seen in my life! I wish I had videoed it.

After her reaction calmed down. She copied Esmeralda's phone number on her phone, so she can call her again."

She then paused for a second and asked "What if you now think of a different card and call her . . . what will happen?"
I said, "Nothing will happen . . . her voicemail isn't gonna change . . . it will still reveal your card."
She then called the number again, and heard the same message . . . which warped her mind even MORE.

I know I made this app, but all I can tell you is, this thing is just TOO MUCH FUN!
