Do I think everyone who works out a method to an effect lets us know? No! But that could be said the same for everything you perform right now.

You won't get smiles with this app anyway, you will get gasps.

Saying a peek wallet is a lot cleaner than any electronic device, I'm not sure I agree!

Do you really think that the spectator doesn't go away and say, 'why did I have to write a name on the card and the place it in to his wallet? Why didn't he just let me hold on to it?'

I have performed this a lot, and it gets gasps every single time. spectators don't know "at the time" how I could unlock their iPhone.

If you perform and you want something very strong to add to your repertoire, you need to get this. If you are just a hobbyist, don't buy it, you will only see the value in this app if you actually perform it.

kindest Regards
Myke

We just got this quote from Fergus Flanagan.

"Myke!, Salah!, your upcoming release, knocked me for six!!! It's unreeeeeal! Absolutely love it!!

I can't remember being this badly floored in........  Practical, Contemporary, Ingenious...

If I didn't have one, I would buy an iPhone just for this trick..."

I agree with David Klass on this and I think Myke has missed the point on peek wallets . If you are holding a card with info on in your hand there is a chance you could see it or see through it etc, putting in a wallet is making it more impossible to peek in the specs eyes imo . Obviously there has to be a method with Mykes effect but to me it was obvious what is was going to be and I think specs will back track on this. Anyway each to his own so good luck with it.

Myke has not missed the point with the peek wallet, I perform with it 5 hours a day in the streets of London.
I just know that everything can be justified very well, and with the peek wallet, I do, but if you think they can't backtrack to you placing the card in your wallet, then I respectfully think your wrong.

Everything can be backtracked eventually. I have revealed pin numbers to performers who were unable to backtrack this method.

The thing about our app, is that it doesn't shout out app to the spectator.

This is a fantastic utility device and we have 4 fully scripted routines that will give you the justification you need.

Anyway I hope this makes some sense as its late and I'm shattered.

kindest Regards
Myke

Why do so many people have opinions on this trick with out having seen it?
Myself, Fergus Flanagan, Alan rorronson, Daniel Madison, James brown and many others have recommended this and put there name too it. People who actually own the app, use it and work it.
To be honest I don't know why I'm being sucked in to this forum chat. Look all of the above names would not use it, if they thought there was a fault in the method.
David to be honest if people back track the method, it would be due to a very very bad performance, and I mean a very bad one. Nothing todo with the actual method its self. Ok I'm done here.

OK Alex. I honestly don't want a fight and I do hope this is as good as it looks.
I was only voicing a concern and wanted to see how you guys get round the one major problem this could have.

Obviously without a video demo or being able to see the effect I can't make a proper judgement.
I REALLY do hope that the routining will cover any problems.

There are indeed some great names above.
Although, to say Alan has worked it is a little exaggerated. He didn't know anything about this effect a couple of days ago (see page one of this thread) Smile

How is it that some already have this app when it hasn't yet been cleared by Apple?

All the names stated by Alex, already have the app and played with it for a very long time. We have released a beta version which is accessible to only the members of our beta testers team Smile.

Its called beta testing Pegasus - standard practice for apps

I have been using this for quite some time now. While I agree that lay people at gigs might not come back to you and say how they think it is achieved I do know that regulars at venues I perform at and friends and family certainly WILL. Not one single person has been able to reverse engineer the method

If you don't think you could achieve what many other performers are achieving time after time... don't buy it... PLEASE don't BUY IT

For everyone else not limited by such thinking, this is excellent.

Footnote: My personal (i.e. nothing to do with Myke and the team) expectations of how the Café would respond were very low, and once again I haven't been disappointed...

Just wanted to chime in and say that Alex didn't actually say that Alan Rorrison has worked it! But I also don't want this thread to turn it to a !@#$%ing competition.

I understand where some of you are coming from, I have been on the wrong end of a product, that when I bought it I thought, how can I get away with this? But I really believe in our product, and so do the names mentioned above. We have been approached by magic consultants, so the star of the shows their working on, can perform our app. It really is a great utility app. You will use this!

kindest Regards

Thank God Myke is fronting this piece up.

The concerns expressed were expressed politely and Myke has responded appropriately and with courtesy to the queries.

Unfortunately we see the same people surfacing, yes you James, who respond with aggression to peoples questions --luckily any doubts this may cause potentially purchasers are offset by Mykes responses.

Thank you guys.


I wish you all the best with this Myke and thank you for tackling these concerns in a professional manner.

A few of us only wanted assurances that the slight weakness in the routine had been thought about and addressed. I am now in no doubt that it has.

I also apologise if I have come across as negative at all. I really do want this to be as amazing as I first thought it could be.

Honestly, I'm really looking forward to this and can't wait to see everyone's ideas, routines and then try it out myself.

Ray - my problem is never with the asking of questions except when they are fishing for method. My problem is when you and others like you claim that something wont work or cant be done as this displays your level of limitation which you are placing on others. Some of the most elegant magic effects are illogical in approach, some are even blatantly obvious but that doesn't mean the audience will GET them or even be able to back track. My aggression was not on the question asked but on the mentality that asked it.

If you think the product or effect wont work for you then fine, don't buy it. This isn't some pipe dream dvd or one trick wonder but an app that has been strenuously tested my many different professionals who have ALL come to the conclusion that it WORKS

I appreciate from other posts here that you and I are unlikely to see eye to eye about many thinks, especially magic philosophy and performance but put my limited connection to this product to one side and you still have the 100 % pisitive feedback from all the other people who have used it.

James Brown

So that my name doesn't tarnish this project I shall refrain from further comment

As an addition: I have re read my post and cant quite get how you saw it as 'aggressive'

This is all very confusing. In one sentence can you detail what happens in the effect? Does it use your phone or does it unlock theirs? What is the most basic presentation of the effect?

Basic Effect
Imagine, you give your iPhone to a spectator and tell them to try and unlock your iPhone. They can't, because obviously they don't know what your Passcode is. Without ever touching your iPhone, you are able to Mentally send the correct Passcode to the spectator unlocking your iPhone. Now, if that is not as amazing as it sounds, what happens next, you can only imagine in your wildest dreams. You take the spectators iPhone from them, and tell them to Mentally send you their Passcode. They do, and you are able to correctly guess their Passcode and unlock their iPhone on the first try.

I hope that sets everything straight.

Best
