Just had a look Jan, some different images there. I think this is an ideal use for tele-foto. :

Dear friends,

We just found out that para.ms has stopped working.

para.ms is the URL shortening service that teleFoto and Supa Thump use to shorten the long URL.

We are currently looking into another solution for your URL shortening needs.

In the mean time, here's a solution:

For teleFoto:
Instead of using para.ms/fo/x-y

Please use:
333pics.com/?id=x-y


For Supa Thump:
Instead of using para.ms/st/x-y

Please use:
supathump.appspot.com/t/x-y


You are welcome to use other URL shortening services (like j.mp ... aka bit.ly) to make the above URLs shorter or easier to remember.

We are very sorry for this inconvenience, but I'm afraid the failure of para.ms is completely out of our control.

Thank goodness, we had anticipated this problem and have other URLs that will work.

thank you for your patience as we resolve this problem,
Greg Rostami

PLEASE NOTE: This problem does NOT effect RA or RACAAN. Both RA and RACAAN are working perfectly.


I cannot figure out how to edit the albums to change the url. Please guide me on how to do this.

Thanks
Patrick

Small tip - I've set up all the links for various albums (and other needed urls) as a hidden page on my website.

Worst case scenario I can always just go to my own website and click on something, from their phone. Viola - site loaded - no url shortener needed.

With that said - this is a discreet action. I personally don't believe in spectators clicking on something from my own website as a "test". People my age and in tech industries would just flat out (correctly) not believe it was a fair site. If they were led to it FROM my website they would correctly assume I can somehow see or record their actions. They MUST be led to believe they are looking at some random site off google. Doing it this way has NEVER led me astray.

I've spoken many times on the Café about the differences between demographics and the usefulness of technology - this is just one more example of a disconnect that is starting to become wider and wider in magic and Mentalism as a whole. Tread carefully my friends.

I purchased SupaThump and telephoto on 3rd December 2014 - two unusable applications.
Here is my correspondence with Greg Rostami regarding the issues I had:
Hi Greg
There is one major issue that needs resolving. The vibration on the iPhone 6 is too loud on all the applications I have bought. When I was testing them out with my wife she kept saying your phone is buzzing, you have a message. Unless I was in a noisy environment I could not use the applications.
I have a solution for this, but the applications would need an update I think.
I believe your applications use the default vibrations and not the selected user CUSTOM Vibrations, even if they are selected with a tick.
Here is my idea:
I have created a very short CUSTOM vibrate which is very quiet due to the length of vibrate. If you can get the applications to use the selected CUSTOM vibrate and not the default vibrate, you would have a winner with the iPhone 6.
Please advise.
/////////////////////////////
Reply from Greg Rostami
I wish I could access the custom vibrations of the iPhone.
iOS does not give developers a way to access anything other than the default vibration of the iPhone.
Sorry about that, but I'm afraid I can't do anything about that. You're going to have to ask Apple to give developers access to these functions.
Greg

My reply,
Maybe you should warn people of this problem before they buy!
/////////////////////////
I have had no other response from Greg since then so I have two unusable applications! I was not happy with Greg’s reply earlier suggesting me to contact Apple to ask them to let developers have access to this area of the vibration feature, as this is not my job to do this.


Thanks for the comments...I was going to buy telephoto tomorrow....guess I should wait until the issue is resolved :-(

Expertmagician, there will nothing be resolved. It's a hardware issue that Greg can't solve because Apple doesn't allow to use all the possibilities.
The app works absolutely fine. There are two ways to solve this problem.
1. step away from you spectator while the selection is made and talk to them while the magic happens
2. try to put something in your pocket that silence the sound.....that's it.
There is no need to wait until you buy it. It's perfect.

That is exactly what I've done... when you go to my website ( http://janforster.de/kontakt.html ) you'll find there at the bottom 4 not even hidden links which lead to 4 different albums/"tests". And once there the true url is hidden as well. People believe still to be on my website or so... Smile Jan

Thanks Jan! I visited your Website a couple of times and I think that with your website alone you can perform a 15 Minute act! :-D
You are the reason that I've learned the PL Stack to use it with Telefoto. I think that this stack I more than perfect for this effect.
Therefore I have to thank you because now this effect really is powerful. I always hated it when people got curios with the standard album because pics were repeating quite fast.
We seem to love the same things and I hate it when you perform them before I get a hold of them. I'm your Padawan, Obi-Wan! ;-)

Dear friends,

We just added a new even SHORTER URL to teleFoto.
Smile

Instead of using:
para.ms/fo/x-y
333pics.com/?id=x-y

You can now use:
22p.co/x-y

For example the URL for my Vegas album is:
22p.co/2-1

We will be updating both the iOS and Android versions of teleFoto shortly to have this new URL as the default.

Aaaaand ... there will be just one more thing ..... Hmmmm?! I wonder what it could be?

enjoy,
Greg Rostami

I just bought and downloaded Telefoto.

1) First issue...no big deal...But, on the iPhone 6+ in zoom mode, I needed to have Telefoto use my own screen shot because the one which comes with the software is too large and only part of the home screen shows. As I said, it was easy to fix this problem by taking my own screen shot.

2) I typed in the "Easy" URL into my computer browser (para.ms/fo/11735-0)and my browser says the "link appears to be broken".

3)I then tried: http://333pics.com/?id=x-y, My browser says loading album and hangs.

4) Then I tried: "22p.co/x-y" and Godaddy sais that the page was parked ?

5) Finally, I tried "22p.co/2-1" and "Godaddy" showed up again.

Sigh...My first test and use of telephoto was a failure :-(

So far I live Telefoto very much...Cool app !

The comments about the loud vibration sound using an iPhone 6 Plus is definitely a problem when I am playing with the app at home.
I will have to test it outside or in a restaurant, etc. to see if the vibrator is still as loud...I may have to see how far I need to walk away from my audience so they do not hear the sound.
Putting a cloth in my pocket to help dampen the sound does not help much.

I did turn off the vibrate, so I only have a visual queue ... that works great. Maybe I can leave my phone on my lap or think of a way to peak at it. I need to play more...

NOTE: There was talk of a web site for people who have Telephoto to discuss ideas....do you have the UTL ?
Please PM me or post here ?

Thx !

need to experiment and practice more Smile But, it is cool Smile
