Totally agree with both Steve and Greg. The option to go straight into the effect would be so much better.

I would also like to use a binary system.

Gracias, Mauricio!

Greg, Steven and rasp,
I'll study about this possibility, too! My fear is that the application be too confused. But I'll find a way!

Why? Why? Why?

That really ****es me off!!!

Myself and others buy at the full price when it launches, we give it good reviews and feedback which you ask for.......then you reduce the price for others!!!

Not good marketing Gui........ probably will never buy anything that is connected with you again!!

I'm really sorry, Ian!

My idea was only to celebrate the International Magic Day with a 1 day discount, and not do a promotion just to get more downloads. I was careful to cut a symbolic value, so I not would devalue those who bought at full price.

I don't wanna The discount was only $ 1. 20% OFF, symbolic. Most time other applications have reductions of 50% to 100%.

I really appreciate all the reviews and suggestions, and I will work hard to implement them all. I'm sorry if my attitude seemed to belittle you.

I don't wanna give you a wrong impression, so if most people believe that the discount is unfair, I'll be happy to go a step back.

Really sorry.

On a different note, this app has allowed me to finalize an effect I've been working on for a while. The pictures are all taken and I've performed it a couple times which has gone over very well. I'm going to see if I can video the presentation this weekend and post it up. It will hopefully give fellow magi an inkling of the kind of things that are possible with this.

Steven, I'll wait for the video! It will be amazing to see what fellow magicians are doing with it!

I take back what I said earlier - I've been using my background (not one of the recommended ones), and the discrepancy is not noticed by anyone. Yes, it'd still be cool to implement the iForce technology, but it's not as necessary as I thought earlier.

It'd be cool to have the springboard deleted completely, and all the necessary operations happen within a fake "photos" app. You say you took a picture of a playing card, and it's the last photo in your album. You open the photo app to a picture a few before the end, and the spectator names a card. As you scroll through the pictures, you are secretly touching where you need to. At that point, the correct photo is added.

I only say this because I only have two pages of apps and hate to add a third...

jprace,

Unfortunately this is not possible. The structure of the app would have to be totally different, and using a fake application the end of magic will not as clean as the current version.

Furthermore, load all the photos from camera roll to start the magic would be time consuming, and I would have problems with approval from Apple mimicking other interface.

Hey Gui,

Even for the full price, I think it is well worth it. If it were a typical gimmicky app made for children, it should be priced at $0.99 or free; but because the app is very well made, I would categorize it beyond the typical magic apps for children, but a long with the typical products in the market that are at least $10. So with or without the discount, your product is worth it!

To everyone:

Do any of you have any preset ideas? So far I only use two.

1) any playing cards, in which I use a picture of me holding onto the card, which makes the prediction more personable and stronger
2). I have a slip of paper in which I have about 50 numbers, and each number corresponds to a special memory/experience. I have the slip of paper folded up inside my phone case and have participants look at them and see which one they have a strong emotions with

Here is a link to a similar app by my business partner Salah Aazedine, but in my opinion salah Aazedine's Handzoff app has a method that is more deceptive, and handzoff. Not taking anything away from this app. I think it's a decent app.

Hanzoff was put on hold while we worked on our Amazing iUnlockYourMind app. Salah is now working to get his app back on track.

There was a guy called Kiki who sold a set of jpeg images a year ago.
It was a woman walking past a store window, and in the window was a giant playing card.
A full set of 52 photos made a great series of outs.
I used them for the app that David Copperfield bought and stopped us all using.
They would be great for this a s well.

Hi, Steve!

Sure would! Besides the letters, the PhotoPrediction allows create presets with up to 120 photos, so the possibilities are endless!

Using creativity you can do real miracles! Later tell us what you think about the app!

Best,

Gui.

Love the concept - but I don't like how you (might) need to change your springboard background. Any chance an update will be made to make the springboard technology more like iForce?


I should have paid attention to this post. If you want to keep a photo wallpaper this app will not be useful for you. Your image has to essentially be solid. I wish this fact was made clear or if it was I wish I hadn't missed the fact. Hopefully an update will come down the road because then this would be a practical and powerful app. Currently for me a bust.

Hi, Jon!

I really don't think that is a big problem. You can change your wallpaper temporarily, like many others magic effects that need some preparation (a special shoe, or a gimmicked t-shirt, etc).

If you do not want to change your wallpaper anyway, you can still use your old wallpaper: most people won't see this detail, since you do not call too much attention to the screen. Changing the background is just a recommendation to make a cleaner execution.

Best,

Gui
