Thanks for the heads up, Nathan! Waiting to hear if my Pixel 2XL will be supported, since it is not on the list.

Yeah my Samsung Note 9 wasn't either, so I put other and paid. I can't foresee it being a problem. By the way, I LOVED my Pixel 2XL. Good phone. You could just go for it, I'll bet it's fine? Maybe Jonathan will have more input.

Howdy! We are looking at the top phones across the spectrum and working toward those screens. I will have a more complete list soon. The list you encountered on the site was a subsampling of devices, which is why I ask for your device model in the "Other" section. I'm compiling data from users so that I can work to accommodate as many folks as possible.

You twisted my arm, Nathan. Smile Just sent my info and purchased it. Now for the waiting....
By the way, I love my Pixel 2XL. Am ready to purchase a new Pixel, but the 3's and 4's just don't 'do it' for me. Hopefully the 5 (next October?) will be more impressive.

Nice! We'll be joining the throngs of happy buyers on Facebook soon, too. Gonna be fun. And yeah, the 2XL is still better than the 3 or 4 in my opinion. I'm waiting for the 5 as well. Smile

Indeed! Plan to use this with my DMC Elites, for an added layer of deception.

A friend of mine has this. I wish I had gotten it at the introduction price. $150
Is a lot for something I may not use very often (my fault, not the tricks)

Really? That’s me out then. Too much for a hobbyist.

It may be expensive, but I've been using it at every opportunity - close-up and stage. I just love doing it and the reactions can be amazing, worth every penny for me.

So can you just setup a code system with the stranger that when you call and start the conversation you tell them the selected card? I believe there is already a method in one of Dan Harlands DVD

Unfortunately every time you perform an effect with an iphone the first thing people think it is that is an app.

Magic is the impossible . Electronic Technology makes it possible

You can absolutely setup a code system. I also give you one in the instructional videos. Or you can unlock the texting feature that will automatically send a text message to the person you are calling, with the name of the selected card. It's totally seamless. The structure of this routine is such that the assumption that you are using an app is eliminated.

In general I agree with you, electronics are always an "explanation" for the audiance, even if they have no idea how it worked. because we are used that our mobiles are doing unexplainable things every day for us. that is the reason I always say to keep the phones out of view doing app-supported magic. because using a phone in combination with a rubiks-cube or to choose a name of an actor makes no sense. it is not a "natural combination".
it is funny that here are long discussions about using a coaster and a glass together than when it is about mobilephones. why the fu** I should use a phone to find a selected card when the toy car was so much cuter...? nevermind. I just do not like unlogical stuffs in tricks.
but with the stranger it is different. it is totally natural to use a phone to call somebody. and it is normal to to use the magicians phone to not expose the spectators number to a unknown person. so the use of a phone is a logic element of the trick.
just tree more things I find important:
1. the spectators must be sure that they choose the number
2. the audiance must not know the whole number. for example let the stage-spectator type in the last two digits without saying after the first digits were choosen by talking out loud by the audiance.
3. do not talk!!! like this you proof its no coding. and I think it is much more fun to see the (bit shy and ashame) spectator explaining the situation... ;-)

Codes are great when you're always working with the same partner, but The Stranger leverages a growing community of people available to be your partner without needing to learn anything. Also, The Stranger lets you communicate the selection behind the scenes, so you could actually have the spectator do 100% of the talking to eliminate any possibility you were talking in code.

I've performed this in front of the same clients but different groups all together, and I've had my client tell me that their speculation on how the trick was done was through code, however, they then told me that the way they thought the trick had been done I had proved them wrong again as the trick this time went completely different.
<b>
In other words: I'm saying that <u>this is not</u> an 'unfortunately every-time you perform an effect with an Iphone the first thing...' </B>

type of trick because its not an effect with an Iphone, its a full-blown audience dials digit- = call some complete stranger action. As in it doesn't come off that way because the performer presents it as what it is- calling a random number + its an effect with the whole audience.. It's interactive with the audience participation, and the verbal language is so ambiguous in presentation that it takes the entire notion of 'an app' out of the minds.

This is some pretty powerful stuff. Fortunately, who ever uses this becomes apart of an sustainable club- truly a bunch of strangers all working together. A true symbol of unity that ripples down into the audience sensory experience because magic is the impossible.

Yes. I am hoping I can do this next Saturday. Please say it's in a few days.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.
