Hello, all. Very late to the party on this app, but I'm enthralled by what I've read and seen of it. I had one question though: with the Houdini's Eyes effect, is it possible to customise the presentation to a different photo entirely?

I've seen a video of this effect in which the performer directed the spec to his own website and managed the same reveal with an image on his homepage. Is this kind of thing realistic (i.e. can one embed the image elsewhere)?

Thanks!


Yes

Hi all, I'm also very late to the party Smile

I've just downloaded the free App and cannot find any instructions for the ESP trick that came with the app.

From what I can figure out, I can only "see" what the spectator has selected on the website if I look at my iphone. This however, is not how the trick was presented by Greg, as he puts his phone face down on the table, and then asks the spectator to predict which symbol Greg was "thinking of", and then he turns his phone face up to reveal that the spectator was correct.

Many members here confirm that the trick can be performed exactly as Greg shows it in the videos, so I am wondering where I can find the instructions to do the free ESP trick?

Your help is much appreciated.

@patapon, you’ll need to purchase the full version of the app to perform any of the effects you’ve seen demonstrations of. The free version is just a very feature-light intro to the app, and isn’t (from what I can tell) really intended to be used with a spectator. More of a proof of concept.

If you own Inject, you do get access to an ESP effect which executes roughly as you stated!

Take a step back and look at the bigger picture for a moment... The two tricks you are describing wouldn't actually require separate methods, would they? You've let Greg's presentation confuse you.

Thanks for your feedback!

Yes, I am aware that all the effects are only possible with full purchase of the app.

However, it is clearly stated in the App Store that "The free version includes a mind blowing ESP effect", but there are no instructions at all on how to do this effect.

To create more confusion, there is a video of Greg showing the ESP effect (where he gets the spectator to read his mind as to which card he selected), which I now understand from Posiedon, can only be done with the full purchase.

I am fine with that; I'm just asking what is this "mind blowing ESP effect" that comes with the free App as stated? Or is that misleading altogether, since I can only see the spectators selected card if I look at my iphone.

As for Shelton's post, I'm sorry but I can't see the bigger picture, so would really appreciate it if someone could help me to understand the following:
1. Can I actually do the ESP effect that Greg shows in his ESP video with the free App? At this point, I am thinking that it cannot be done with the free App, but only with full purchase?
2. What exactly is the "mind blowing ESP effect" that I can actually perform with the free App? Would it simply be looking at my iphone to tell what card the spectator has chosen on his/her iphone?

Thanks!

Unless I am completely misunderstanding what is included with the free version, the answer is yes, you can replicate the effect so that it looks exactly the same.
I have sent you a PM to discuss further.

I'm looking at this Vs. Telefoto. I would like to find effects that I could do with someone over the phone. Or via text. My understanding is I could do that with the Telefoto technique.

Could it also be performed, without the spectator in the room, using Inject 2?

I just thought that with Inject 2. You kind of had to touch their phone. Can I essentially perform "TeleFoto" with Inject 2?

Hi Conrad,

Yes, you can perform teleFoto like effects with Inject (and a LOT more).
Inject supports most modern smartwatches (any smartwatch that supports local/push notifications will work with Inject) ... teleFoto does not support any smartwatch.

There are two features that teleFoto has that Inject does not:

1. teleFoto can vibrate your phone, Inject can not.
2. With teleFoto you can easily customize your effects by uploading images to our servers for free ... with Inject you have to upload your images to your own server.

I hope that clears things up.

Yes,
There are many effects in Inject that can be performed over the phone/facetime ... the spectator does not have to be in the room with you.

We have just added a NEW preset to Inject 2.0:

ACAAN Random

With this preset, you can perform the ACAAN effect that we all love in Inject but the order of the numbers in the album is no longer sequential (the numbers are now in a random order).

The video below shows the numbers in sequential order ... they are no longer that way:


Let me know if you have any questions.

Important information for those who either own a My Kronoz ZeTime or considered purchasing one for use with magic apps like Inject 2.0 there has been a new update in the last week which has fixed the notifications and is now works perfectly with Inject 2.0

Interesting, why can it not vibrate your phone? Seems like a great feature to have.

Inject will vibrate your phone as feedback for a variety of things.

It currently does not vibrate to indicate what has been selected.

Hi Michele,

What country are you in?

Inject should be available in your country's Google Play store.

One of the most exciting things about Inject is seeing how magicians customize it.

Our friend Felippe Nardi just created a preset that allows you to predict an exact TIME (down to the minute):
https://inject.now.sh/london/1010.jpg

If you're familiar with Inject, you'll know how to use the above URL to perform this amazing effect.

A BIG thanks to Felippe for sharing this awesome preset with the Inject Facebook group.

All the best,
Greg

P.S. The above routine starts with the spectator doing a google search of "Big Ben" on their phone.

Inject 2.0 – Greg Rostami

Product description : In those days, technology is so much evolved, nearly everything is possible ! Greg Rostami has achieved the impossible with Inject 2.0 which is the most intricate and developed app I’ve seen since it can do so many things. It would take pages to sum up what Inject can achieve but I will list the main ones : you can have your spectator typing anything on google on HIS phone and you’ll be able to know what he wrote. You will also be able to do a prediction on his phone, without touching it after the spectator has revealed his thoughts. You can inject and retrieve information from the spectator’s phone. It can do a lot of things, I’ve forgotten most of them but trust me, it is the most versatile app out there.

Price and where to buy it : This is sold at $75 and you can find it in nearly every Murphy's magic « partner » shop !

What you get : Here the material you get is not really important since it’s an app. So you get a code which will allow you to download the app from any store, whether it is from an IOS phone or an Android one. The app is really well made, you get a custom account, as well as a custom link. There are many many features in the app, you can transmit information to your spectator’s phone, you can customize it as you want, number of outs, what they are, there is so much to do with it. Anyway, the app does require an internet connection (or not, if you use the 2 borrowed phones routine). With the app, you get an in depth tutorial of all the features available. Overall, I’m really happy with what I got, you could download the app directly from the appstore but less money would go to Greg from what I understood.

Teaser : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydp5kFhOfVA

The pros and the cons : Here is the core of my review, let's begin with the cons, as I will usually be doing, I prefer to keep the good things for the end.

THE CONS :
 As I said, for some routines (most of them), you’ll need an internet connection.
 You will have to touch the spectator’s phone at some point, which can lower a bit the impact of the routine. In some cases, it is justified because you have to write a prediction. But you’ll have to construct your routine in order for your spectator to forget that you handle their smartphone.

THE PROS :
 Well well well, where to start? First thing is that in most (if not all) effects, your phone is never seen. I think doing magic with a borrowed smartphone enhance the whole routine because for your audience, you don’t have any props on you.
 The versatility of the app is amazing, you can do a lot of routines and what I love is that not all routines look the same, you could do a full show with only Inject!
 If you add a little smartwatch to this, you could become god in seconds, imagine, you have nothing in view, they type in any word, and you guess it! Is there anything purer than this?
 This is so good if you want to promote yourself, you can use it with Facebook for example. In those digital marketing days, this is just perfect.
 Have I mentioned the Facebook group? It’s the best I’ve seen in magic, people are helping each other and providing new ideas and routines. It’s very cool to see this product alive, evolving and going through all those steps.
 The app is fully customizable to your own pictures, website, anything! Make it your own, so that your spectator will experience a real miracle.
 I don’t know how they achieved that but there is nothing dirty on your spectator’s phone at the end! Even if they go back on their brother, they will find nothing but a simple Google page. 100% clean!

Overall rating : I like this so much I bought a smartwatch especially for it, I have it on me at all time and I can perform miracles with nothing but the spectator’s smartphone. I can, without any doubt, say that this is the best magic app ever, 4/4 hearts.

As for the difficulty level, it will depend on the effect you want to do but most of them are easy, just make sure your routine is right, I would say 2/5 stars.

Similar products : If you want other good apps : Card2Phone, Marty, Voila etc..

Thank you very much Alex for your amazing review.
We really appreciate it.

I just posted this in your review thread ...

There are many effects that you can perform with Inject where you never touch your spectator's phone.

For example, if you ask your spectator to go to your Facebook page and look at your last post ... you can have a photo that predicts a card or a time or anything you want.
As you said in your review, this is a great way for a magician to promote themselves (since your spectator is left with an amazing prediction on the magician's Facebook page).

You can also leave this impossible prediction on THEIR Facebook page ... this seems even MORE impossible since your spectator knows that the magician can not edit their facebook posts.

The URL (web address) for these images look something like this (for the protection of our customers, the following link does not work) :
google****.com/10/greg-rostami.jpg

Notice how the above URL looks exactly like a typical URL for a JPEG file online.

Here's an example of this:



Here's another performance where you never touch the spectator's phone:



There are routines in Inject where you MUST touch the spectator's phone.
When you perform these effects, touching their phone is motivated (and logical):
