This looks great. Can someone comment on the advantages of this over something like Earworm (aside from google search vs. YouTube), etc?

My mistake if this was already answered.

Thanks

Hi Sean,

Thank you for your interest in Inject 2.0

Inject allows you to covertly convert your spectator's phone into either a transmitter or a receiver (sometimes both).

When their phone is a receiver, you can have it go to any website (it's not limited to Google, YouTube, or any other site).
By default it uses Google, since it's the most popular search engine.

The information that their phone receives can be an image, a particular image on a web album, a YouTube video, or any website.

Imagine, you were performing at an Apple event ... you can ask your spectator to name any Apple product. When they look at their phone, they'll see that you had navigated to the product that they were thinking of at Apple.com
_______________________________________________________________

When their phone is a transmitter, it can send information to you like:

1. Which image are they looking at on their phone.
2. What are they searching for in Google.

You can either see or hear this info on your phone, smartwatch, or even another borrowed phone (that's how you can perform Inject even if your phone is DEAD!)

Inject supports all smartphones that receive notifications.
It also supports several BT hardware buttons to covertly input information.

I hope that helps,
Greg

P.S. There are no signs of foul play left behind on the spectator's phone.

Greg, thanks for that thorough response.

This sounds amazing and I will be purchasing it.

I was an owner of the original inject, do I need to re-register for inject 2 or can I use my old login? If it's the old one, I'm having trouble with it since the upgrade and I can't seem to get a password recovery e-mail sent to me either.

Hi Greg,

You mentioned earlier in this thread that Inject 2 can be used with Glance. I use the Glance magazine test all the time, but how does Inject 2 add to that? Is there a phone book test that uses the same book test principle of Glance, or is there an actual routine that you can perform while still using the Glance magazines?

Thanks

Hi Nathan,

Inject is basically a multi out system that uses Google as the motivation to look up information.

You can use Inject with ANY book test that's on the market.

Here's my routine:
__________________________________________

When I first came to the US I didn't know English.
So, I was always looking up words in a dictionary ... especially the big words.

For the next minute, let's go back to the time that reading English was a MYSTERY!!

Please open this book to any page, and look at any word ... please make it a really big word ... like the ones that I use to look up.

Once you find a word, close the book and ask me to turn back around.


They open your favorite book test and look at a big word.

Even though no one knows your word, I'm going to look up the definition of YOUR word!?
May I please borrow your phone for a moment to Google the definition.


They navigate to Google.com and give you their phone.

Please concentrate on your word ... Hmmm ... that's an interesting word ... I wonder what the definition is.

You type on their keyboard, hit return, and remark ... Aaand here's the definition. ... Put their phone facedown.

It would be AMAZING if the first letter of my word is the same as your word. What's the first letter of your word?

They say "R" ... Oh my gosh ... I think I looked up the definition of YOUR word ... look at your phone!!

When they turn over their phone, it's showing the definition of "repairman" in Google!!
_________________________________________________

I often finish this effect by asking another spectator to pick up the phone and read the definition of their word. This helps build the drama of the routine.

As you can see from the above routine, you are asking for the 1st letter AFTER you've already committed to the word on their phone.

You can obviously alter the above routine to suit your character.

I hope that helps answer your question.

Hi Greg. I bought Inject 2 through Penguin. I thought I would be able to download the app but is no where to be found. I bought it today but Penguin has not answered my email.

That’s what happens when creators try to circumvent apple’s rules in order to make more profit.

I’d never buy an app that’s not in the App Store. You’ve got no one to complain to.

Hi All,
Just reading the great reviews of this product. But it is still not clear to me, maybe somebody could help clarify, what do I need in order to perform this? A spectator's phone, the app and... do I need and Apple or other smart watch? I don't have a wearable, what are my options?

You don't need a smartwatch. To perform the effects you need a smartphone with the app installed. That's it.

Smartwatches will make it easier but you really don't need one (I don't use one).

Thanks Sleepy Magic,

Is it relatively easy to cover or motivate the glances/peeks at my phone for these effects? I guess it's down to scripting and choreography... but wonder what is your take, given that you use this without a smartwatch.

The peeks - in the routines that require them - are quick, well covered, and highly motivated. Even more-so with some of the new features in 2.0. That said, there are routines with no peek necessary, routines where your phone stays in your pocket the whole time, even routines where you can leave your own phone at home and just use theirs.

Hi Don,
When you get your package in the mail, you'll see the names of the free apps that are available as a free download from both the iOS and Android app stores.
You'll then use your unique password that's supplied in the package.

Inject 2.0 is a free download from both the iOS and Play app stores. You use the app stores to download Inject.
If you have any complaint about Inject, you can reach out to Apple or Google.

But if you want to talk on the phone with the people that made the app, then you can contact me at:
grostami@gmail.com

Down loaded it and tried out the free esp effect worked very well. It's very cool but at 75 quid is a little expensive. I'd like it for the odd effect you could do down the pub.It would be ace say if you were a corporate magician doing say a Samsung HTC sony smartphone event.This would be awesome. Can I have a discount?

So, dumb question. Those with inject (myself) haven't given it justice and put it to use. I tried opening inject for the first time in a while and it made me pay $0.99 for updates. Does that mean I have inject 2.0? Google images and push notifications have trial next to them, will that go away?

Hi Blindside785,

Thank you for upgrading to Inject 2.0.

For the last 5 months we've had both Push Notifications and Google Images as a trial (you can use them for no charge).

We are still debating if we are going to charge for those services. But at the present time both of those services are free.
If we ever decide to charge for Push Notifications, it will be to cover the constant server costs which will be $9.99 per year.

Here's a raw performance of Inject 2.0's new Auto-Pairing feature.
In this performance I NEVER touched the spectator's phone.



all the best,
Greg

Greg,

How can I access Google Images? Every time I click on it I get the message about it being a trial but I don't get the pop up box that lets me "create.

Hi Terry,

If you'd like to learn how to perform the above effect, in the Inject manual go to the page labeled:

"NEW FEATURES OF INJECT 2.X ..."

Scroll down a little bit and read the section labeled "Pair Mode:"

In the above video I have edited out the section where I spell Google Images for the spectator to protect all of the customers of Inject from web crawlers finding the URL.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
