They are still accepting updates and releases today, aren't they Greg? It's after tonight they stop. Either way, probably won't get pushed through if they haven't before today anyway. Fingers crossed we get a lil lucky. If not, guess I'll be buying it after the holidays.

I was lucky enough to get ahold of this app as a prerelease purchase from Greg a few weeks ago. I would have left a review sooner but to be honest, I have been too busy having fun performing iPredict Pro and coming up with new ideas to have time! It slays laypeople and if you know a magician who is familar with iPredict +, get ready to be asked "Wait! How in the world did you do THAT?!"

I have experimented with different ideas and revelelations and I get new ideas everyday. If you don't have this already, don't hesitate to go out on a limb and get it. So many possibilities! The best part is, after the performance is complete, you now have the spectator's phone # and they have yours...because they actually call your REAL #, on your phone, with your voice! Potential clients now have your # on their phone and vice versa. Get you some! (I can't wait to show this off at Magi-Fest next month!)

I just got a call from Apple this morning.

They asked me to make a minor adjustment to the app description.

I think it'll be approved today (FINGERS CROSSED) .

People, you need to get this app! If you want to blow your spectators away with not only something very magical but also mysterious and mind boggling, this is the thing to get. I've been slaying laypeople AND magicians with this for well over a month now. If you like iPredict+, you will fall in love with iPredict Pro.

Hello friends,

I got some good news and some bad news.

First the bad news . . .

Even though I spoke to someone at Apple three days ago, AND they told me it would be approved . . . it's still not approved.
I called him again asking when I would find out if it has been accepted or rejected and he said "There's no ETA". Smile


Now for the good news . . .

For my existing customers of iPredict Pro.
You can now customize your SMS text responses!!

Using any browser (except Chrome on Mac; we have NO idea why Chrome doesn't work) go to:

https://ipredict-pro.appspot.com/

When you input your Twilio number, it will take you to a page where you can customize ALL 75 text message responses. This includes the messages where the psychic snubs you.

To perform with these text responses, just make sure you have selected the "Custom" preset.

If you're using the Android version of iPredict Pro, you should see a new version on your device any minute now.

In this version you can:
Go to Settings > Preset > Custom > Details > "Customize SMS responses"

Within the app you'll be able to change the SMS responses without having to type your Twilio number.

If you're using the iPhone version, simply go to the URL above using Safari on your iPhone, and you'll be able to do the same thing (you'll just have to enter your Twilio number).

Let me know what you think of this.

Thank you FredNario (Randy),

We just added ONE more feature to customizing your SMS/text messages.

When you log into:
https://ipredict-pro.appspot.com/

You'll notice a new field called:
PRE/POST Messages

Here you can customize the pre and post text that your spectator will receive on their phone.
This is exactly like the pre and post recording feature in the audio voicemail recordings.

Hence, your psychic's text message response can now be . . .
"Hi, I don't recognize your number. I feel you're thinking of the queen of clubs. It's odd but, ALL brunettes from NY think of this card."

This is a VERY custom prediction for your spectator (since she IS a brunettes from NY).

All you have to do to make this happen is, pretend you're answering a text message and type in the Post message:
" It's odd but, ALL brunettes from NY think of this card."

Notice the space at the beginning of the above line.

This opens up a WHOLE new world of performance possibilities!

enjoy,
Greg Rostami

Here's the latest update about iPredict Pro on the iPhone.

Richard from Apple called me yesterday to tell me the app was rejected again.

This time it's because the app simulates the contacts app, and that's not allowed.

What's funny is the fact that it simulates the contacts app is the FIRST thing they see when they launch it. So you would think they would have told me that TWO months ago.

Furthermore, iPredict+ also simulates the contacts app, and as you know, iPredict+ has been approved TEN times over the last TWO years!

But wait, THERE'S MORE!
Richard said Apple only allows magic apps that simulate the springboard (home screens).

So I sent them an email with a BUNCH of apps that simulate parts of the iPhone other than the springboard.

There response was, "We will contact those app developers and ask them to STOP doing that."

Soooo, does that mean that ALL organic magic apps will be pulled from the app store unless they comply?

So after THREE years of research and THOUSANDS of dollars payed to two developers, I'm left with NOTHING.

Now, this doesn't mean I'm gonna stop fighting.
I'm really getting tired of fighting Apple when the Android version has been available for purchase for 1.5 months.

We have a few ideas as to how to make the app look different so that it'll be accepted.

Folks, if any of you have any pull with Apple or the media, please help me.

That's crazy Greg! Idk how they have let iPredict, and iPredict+ in for so long and all the sudden it is not allowed. I hope you keep fighting! We've all been waiting so long to be able to get this! Besides all the time, money, and effort you have sunk into this.

I guess the other option is to go the jailbreak route and sell it through cydia. I must admit Apple are gradually losing more of their market share to Android by not allowing people to customise their phones and deciding what software we can have on our phones without good reason. Before long android will be the only choice for magicians.

Greg have you tried escalating your appeal to the app review board?

Greg, I'm assuming you might have emailed or messaged David Pogue, who is one of your fans.

Hi Mark,
They told me escalating it to the app review board wouldn't do me any good. We're working on a solution now. If they reject this one, then I don't know what to do.

Hi bugjack,
I did email David Pogue. He has not responded to me. I also emailed Victor Agreda Jr. of TUAW.
Victor was the one that broke the story about Chris Kenner's Rising Card back in 2009. I haven't heard from him either.

Surprisingly, both David Pogue and Victor Agreda are magicians.

I spoke to Kelly today from Apple. They told me she's the manager of the guys that I've been talking to.

When I asked her about all of the inconsistencies of the app review process regarding iPredict Pro, she told me that Apple doesn't have to give a reason why a rule or a law is what it is.
She said "We don't have to justify anything."

There's something REALLY weird going on.
I've talked to a fellow app developer (who is now VERY wealthy because of his apps) and he told me that what Apple is doing to me doesn't make any sense.

I hope our next submission will go through.
