Hi all,
I have had the opportunity to delve into this new app. I am a worker and there are few magic apps that I would warrant using as they often feel like clever bits of tech aimed at as many buyers as possible. However, this one is superb! It doesn't feel like anything to do with apps. Not only that but most of the guys who are involved in the testing of this app are people whom I have a huge amount of time for and would never endorse something they are not excited by. Neither would I.
I am going to be using this regularly. In fact I may get more involved. Ideas are flying.
All the best
Paul

What I like most about the premise is that it incorporates five of the strongest elements in a magic effect: magic that happens in a spectator's hands; having a spectator do the magic; reading a spectator's mind; using every day, common objects in an impromptu manner; and having a simple, clear, and memorable effect.

What I like most about the premise is how insignificant and casual the actions are, but the possibility is only limited by your imagination. It is always engaging and ice-breaking if you could start off with statements like,
"Are you a natural mind reader? I think I can sense your aura, madam."
"I need someone like you to delve into the innner mind and read the most private secrets of human"
"How about just try and read my mind now..."

Hand them your iphone VERY CASUALLY and ask them to try guessing your passcode with their intuition. After various tries without success, you tell them you will unlock their phone instead. Make it a big moment, but purposely fail to unlock their phone.
"If I am that good, I will be already at the atm machine withdrawing your money!!"

This could be the perfect gag to earn a laugh while lowering their expectations, before hitting them hard with their passcod/birthday/pincode revelations in any way you like. I could foresee this being the perfect and standard way to approach an audience pre-show, since this is too casual and too perfect a method to obtain secrets! All magician should equip with such a beauty. It's effect is too powerful to forget, while the method is too casual/insignificant to remember.

What I like most is that you don't have to use this as is, you don't have to unlock their phone, you don't have to make this as your go to effect in fact far from it. The strength of this app is the facility to harvest the details in order to do this days, weeks, months after the event. I like the fact that I can be in a different room, city, country and request that the spectator use the information in a disconnected way.

As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

I understand all this about personal passcode , but how do you know its relevant in anyway to them ie bank card no. date of birth etc. Mine sure isn't its just a random number I made up . That being said the effect as described is really growing on me and I think I may have jumped the gun a bit on my earlier posts in this thread .

I spoke to an app designer a while back concerning a similar idea. Don't get me wrong... your product sounds WAY better than the simple thing I had come up with!!

He told me that Apple would have an issue with the app idea... as it would either use part of their coding, or at least use elements of their design work re: Look of the 'unlock function' etc...

That may be why they are taking their sweet time Smile

Either way, congratulations on this product guys.... it sounds like an app-salute winner Smile

Really looking forward to getting my hands on this one!!

What if it doesn't get approved? Will we be screwed?

I was thinking. You can sell it on Lybrary.com if Apple doesn't approve. That's where app designers go sell their apps that were not approved by Apple.

I'd rather have it on the App Store. It's much easier to manage it from there, including updates.

Granted, it IS easier to have it on the App store.... but Apple also take a percentage of sales so.. It may be a consideration, for financial reasons, to launch it on Lybrary?

Secondly, you have probably already considered naming the app something un-related to what it actually is... to prevent it being easily found by the general public.

A quick google search of the app functions will often return the name of it... as well as our chats that are taking place right here!

So... might also be time to take this convo down stairs??

What I like about it is the fact that for me and most others with smartphones, our phone are like our safes. We have valuable info on our phones. We have pictures of loved ones, notes, reminders, music, phone numbers, etc. It's our LIFELINE in so many ways. When the spectator can unlock your phone, your portable object that houses much of your life, it makes them feel they really accomplished something! They are baffled! THEN, when you unlock their phone, now they start to wonder...what else can this guy do? If he can get in my phone or know the year I was born or my BANK PIN CODE (!!!), then you become not a magician, but someone who can dive into people's minds.

iUnLockYourMind is equal to opening up the spectator's home safe with them watching. Love it!

The app is well hidden Smile , you can ask the spectator to check every app on your iPhone and even the running app they will find NOTHING, we have thought about almost every detail and wee have some of the top pro in our beta testers team. We are continuously improving the app.

Hmm it just dawned on me that my iPhone is jailbroken and has a custom lockscreen so I don't think this app is going to be suitable as it will be based on a standard lockscreen.

Mark just read you post again and I now understand.

My iPhone is jailbroken too, and there is not an issue with what you have mentioned.

Good thoughts.... It's on it's way!!

Backgrounds aren't a problem but my lockscreen has a custom clock, a long hand date and also the number pad is themed.
I like the concept because it's organic and has an emotional hook. When they unlock your phone they think the trick is over. Then pow ... You hit them right where they live when they least expect it. If that's not already pretty awesome you are now one, two or more ahead with info you can choose to reveal at a time of your choosing in any manner you see fit. This isn't an effect it's a mentalists arsenal and it's loaded for bear!!!
