Still working it. Shouldn't be long, though. Again, apologies all around. The app has been out since October and we haven't had a problem until last week.

Is this different than my app email wizard? Where did you get the idea for yours?

Server is back up. It might go down and up intermittently over the next few days as we continue stabilizing it, but as of now have at it. Still have a couple more weeks work on the next update but things are looking good there as well. Design work on the Android version is just about done and coding will commence right after that. Very excited about the cross-platform capabilities.

Hello, James. Yes, 21st Century Prediction is different from Email Wizard. The initial idea was germinated after reading the first pillar in Tony Corrinda's "13 Steps to Mentalism." There are a couple of other pillars in there that would make terrific apps and I'm in the early design phase on a couple more.

More videos should be going up in the next couple of weeks to further showcase the app and provide some additional presentational possibilities. In fact, I was thinking about working my way through the first pillar of 13 Steps and doing a video performance of each effect in the book.

Thanks again everyone for bearing with these early problems. Your patience is very much appreciated. And it goes without saying, if anyone feels like this isn't a worthwhile app or if these early stability issues have created any negative feelings, I'll be more than happy to refund anyone no questions asked.

My question is I have an Ipad but I have android phone. Which app should I get? Should I go ahead and get it for Ipad or should I wait for the android? I understand the "assistant" will be able to work across platforms but what is will be the better initial app to get or will it matter?

James, you gave the mentalism community a great effect that people loved. But then you took it away and sold it to a rich performer for his sole use. You offered a refund which was good but It's not surprising that the gap has been filled.

I was thinking along the same lines as Sean.

I was a big fan of E mail Wizard.
I supported the decision of the creator to remove it from the marketplace.
Even when others were giving him a hard time over it.

I didn't even take up the refund offered as I was quite happy to pay for the use I'd got out of the app.

But I think it a step too far for the creator to start questioning other apps that may or may not bear some similarity to E mail wizard.

Once the creator jumped ship, he forfeited the right to get precious about this. IMHO.

James and I have initiated a dialogue off-line. Hopefully, we can get through this with a minimum of fuss and get back to real performing. Thanks again... everyone.

Yeah the thread got a little sidetracked but I would still like an answer to my question.

I am going to try and clarify it a bit...

I have both an older Android Phone and an I pad. I know that some apps are designated to work better with a phone and not a tablet.

So my question is should I get this now for the Ipad or should I wait for the Android version?

I understand that once the android version is up and operational then your assistant can have either kind of device.

But does the "initial email" have to be sent from the device with the actual app installed?

Here is the scenario I am hoping for: I buy the app for my Ipad and I use my phone as the assistant. Since I do not always carry my Ipad I would like to be able to send an email from my phone and use either that phone or another assistant/confederate as the phone to secretly insert the information.

Or do I wait until this is available for android because I would get more use out of it because my phone goes everywhere with me?

Please PM me if necessary.

Gordon, yes, the initial email must be sent from the device with the actual app installed, the confederate cannot send the email. If you buy the app for iPhone you will be able to install both the main app (and the confederate app) on both your iPhone and iPad without requiring two separate purchases. Using the iPad as the email sending device is fine but a quick cautionary note. We didn't do much testing on iPads but we did notice that the secret writing feature doesn't work properly when you use the iPad 2x zoom feature. Using it as a sending device, though, poses no problem.

However, if your day-to-day device is your Android phone then I'd opt to wait for that version since the goal is to be able to perform "anytime, anywhere".

The server is not down. Everything appears to be working fine. Make sure you upload the prediction image before you check the email. If you do it out of order you'll get an 'image not found' message.

Version 1.1 is approved and is available for update on the App Store. Here are the changes:

-Fixed the text clipping issue which would cause some letters to look very slightly shortened
-Changed the color of the predicted text so that it blends in to the picture more naturally instead of "complete black"
-Miscellaneous email fixes
-Various iOS 7 fixes
-Updated screenshots on App Store

Enjoy.

Hi Steven,

Really excited to use this so I downloaded the update. Experiencing several issues though:

Most important - I am not getting the white dot "feedback" which seems to be throwing everything off. The email makes it way to the inbox, but says "no image available."

The new fake springboard now has overwritten, blurrred text where the timestamp and battery indicators/signal indicators are. Not a big deal but noticeable.

Hopefully we can get these things knocked out and continue to use this stellar app!

The white dot is showing up for me in all of my test devices so not sure what is happening there, might it be related to the springboard image you're using? As for no image showing up, I can't reproduce this either. Are you sending the email to a desktop mail client like Outlook? If so, it might be configured to download everything automatically so the initial image is downloaded and not updated when the prediction is sent. Note that this isn't how phone work, they typically wait until you click on a mail item before downloading its contents.

As to the status indicators, we'll switch back to a solid background instead of a transparent one. That's resulting in what you're seeing.
