I have performed this as pre show to glean someones bank PIN for a good 20+ performances. On each occasion the participant has begged me to explain how it was done after the show. A couple of people have followed up with emails after the fact... so you're all right... this is way too easy for the spectator to backtrack...

I actually think the app is interesting and I don't think $300 is an unfair price. I don't think it's best used for a "type this very specific piece of information into my phone and I'll reveal it at a later point," as some people are using it for. But that's their prerogative.

I was only commenting on what I consider to be a strange phenomenon -- that of paying for something then coming here to willfully destroy what you've paid for. The app was going to be a $15 app, then the price went to $300 -- but the increased price meant you were paying for exclusivity. It would be as if you paid a very high price for a painting from an artist, knowing that the high price was worth it because it would mean he's painting very few pieces and what you have would be rare... and then you go on the internet and encourage strangers to have him paint for them, flooding the art market with his work. It's not super logical.

So I'm left with a few options in regards to what I can think about the people behind these reviews.

1. They just have such kind hearts they don't mind undermining the exclusivity that they paid for.
2. They're shills.
3. They're too dumb to understand that with every additional one sold the value of what you paid for goes down.
4. They feel suckered, and like many people after they've been scammed, they don't want to feel alone.

I'm going to go with number one. Because I prefer to think of things that way.

mmhmmm.... well, except for the fact that if you look at my posts in the last 30 days they are in support of Real Secrets, The Cooler, David Stone, etc.. The only product I posted negatively on was this one, and I've even come around on that to some extent.

So... let's see... you just lied about my posting history in order to discredit my position. That is certainly the action of someone who is "not connected to the product in any way." (wink, wink)

The guys who make this app I have never even met them only spoke via email and that was after I purchased it , Joe the comment was only tongue in cheek !

It's just I remember you one arguing about a Paul brook effect that couldn't be examined which you had a fair point but the fact was you didn't even own it as per iunlockyourmind , I understand your concerns over the large price so don't buy it and there is no need to continue on this thread is there .

If I offended you Joe I'm sorry and I apologise for that , I don't want to get into a argument over this but your insinuations that I have something to do with this app is total rubbish .

Apology accepted! And no offense taken. (but you're wrong, I did own the Paul Brook effect I had an issue with. Not sure where you got the idea I didn't.)

I have no issues with the price of this app. I actually have no issue with the app at all. I certainly hope people enjoy it and feel it's worth the investment.

I am sick and fed up with the constant insinuation that I would even have the audacity to ask someone to post fake positive reviews for me.

I have never met anyone who has bought iUnlockYourMind except for one gentleman who I don't know if he wants me to say his name here. And even though I know him, he has not posted to say anything positive about my app for me. Also, we have a secret Facebook group, I have never asked anyone to come here and post their thoughts. Anyone who knows me, knows that I would never do that. Next you'll be asking for me to provide receipts to prove the people that posted on here did actually purchase the app.

There are a few performers that have expressed to me how happy they are via email but have not done so here. This could be for the reason you pointed out Joe.

All I'm saying is, anyone who comes on here saying such things.. You are out of order to even think I would do that.

Then there are some that do want to say something. They probably want our group to get bigger so they can chat about their experiences, ideas and tips.

Read JPovey's previous posts about iUnlockYourMind, then read what he said after we briefly met in London.

kindest Regards
Myke

Myke,

I completely understand. I got lost in the rabbit-hole of what I felt was a logical inconsistency, and I can get carried away with stuff like that, but that's all my posts were referencing. I don't doubt you have many satisfied customers.

good luck with this and take care.

I have a question that may be a dumb one, I'll let you all decide.

If the app is not available through Apple, how does one get it onto ones iPhone?

Doesn't apple have a 100 device limit on ota distribution? Do you have some way around that or is there a limit on the number being sold? Is there any concern about apple finding out you're using it for a finalized app and not beta testing and shutting the whole thing down?

Yes, we are limited to 100 Devices only, and this method is used by most developers in the Café to distribute in house as well as private apps. We have no worries about distributing this way. I'm sure that someone on this thread will try their hardest to spoil this for everyone. Even if you try, it's not gonna happen and shame one you for trying to do this to a your fellow performers.

I can understand some are unhappy and upset about the way this has gone, if I could have done it the other way, I would have. I am just another performer that has created something very special to further our art and all some of you want to do is suggest things and frighten me. Shame on you, and everyone who can read these people doing this should say something to these guys. I don't want to hate this place but there are some on here that are really negative and really shallow and make you feel what's the point. You think I want to get rich doing this, not at all, if I could give it to you for free and I thought you would appreciate it, then I would. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm not in it for the money.

The fact is, I have worked on this every single day for months, writing, testing, ideas. I nearly lost my wife and kids because I was so obsessed with this project. All this to have apple reject it and now what? You want to have this taken from me. You guys really have no idea how badly I wanted you to have this app.

Shame on you all.

I'm done!

Myke, Im in full support of your app, of this thread and of your woes. We've all been through it but posts like your previous do not help the matter. For me, you have just lost your credibility. Mellow Drama is not cool. Just rise above it. There are forums on the net absolutely slamming me and my magic. I've never let it get me down and equally, ive never shown that its upset me. Your personal home problems are sad to hear but arnt meant for a public forum. If creating a magic app is having that much of an impact on your immediate life then just don't do it! soo not worth your health and your families health. Professionalism is always key ive learnt. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and they are entitled to twist the knife. Its part of producing magic and in the same way that celebs who put themselves in the limelight deal with the bad side of what they do, we sadly have to do the same.

I mean this with the upmost respect but I don't feel that your post helped you at all. I think you came across as a lovely chilled guy with great ideas and a passion for what he was doing. I hope I can continue my thoughts of you and your awesome app!

Was that tirade directed at me?

I was asking what I think are very relevant questions for someone considering spending $300 on a magic app. I'm not trying to take anything away from you. I wish you only luck with this. And I'm sorry that your plans didn't work out for real distribution via Apple.
