I'd be interested to know if the following principle is used for any iPhone Apps. Several years ago Nintendo brought out a set of magic tricks that could be performed using a DS hand held gaming console. One of the best effects was a mindreading item - the spectator was shown a list of items on the screen and selected one (touched it). The items were then 'shuffled' to produce a new list containing the selected item and some more apparently random items. Just by reading out this new list the magician could tell what item had been selected.

It's a clever principle and I fried quite a few knowledgable magicians with it, and always thought it would make a great App for an iPhone. Anyone recognise this and know if it exists ?

Mind Lister app does exactly this. Awesome idea, terrible formatting and zero updates. The creator said he would implement a lot of new ideas and changes but it's been years now.
