I’m definitely thinking about picking this up. ( I buy way too much magic ) But I’ll wait for a couple more reviews to come in.
What a great combination of ideas that were put into this.

On an off note, I do have a prediction.
I can see Inject 5.0 adding a feature that allows you to have a 24/7 live accomplice using FaceTime to name any celebrity/place/food/nameDOB or anything you want for only 4.99 a month. Or .99 cents per FaceTime call.
I would have to purchase Inject then.


Awesome. Sounds great.

By the way, I think there is one more day to buy this at $30 off, then the price goes up.

https://conjuror.community/the-stranger/

There was a pre-release webinar about this effect last night. Before it was finished I immediately bought it. I've not had much time to play with this, but I will tell you Jonathan was extremely thorough with the details and features of this effect and the instructions. Totally worth the price right at this time. Its just awesome.
The one thing, if I may be honest, I don't like in-app purchases with recurring fees, so I will never, ever use that feature. It's a real shame, because the feature you have to pay a subscription for is unfortunately one of the best and most useful routines. Oh, well. There are still a lot of other very cool routines you can do with this. And no, I don't think the specs will necessarily figure this out, especially if you practice your acting skills.

Now I gotta hope there a discount for the Android version pre-release should I decide to purchase. *Ahem* Smile one can hope anyway...

Voila app was already proposing this effect perfectly, and at an international scale 🤔

Thanks for this clarification. I agree!

I agrees with this comment. The possibility of being able to create your own recording with your own reveals is what will take this to the next level

I think what makes stranger unique and well worth the money is a real person. I love using concepts such as complete strangers having moment of connection.

Basically, I want the option to have a spectator call a random number, and the recording that plays is whatever I want it to be. I'd like the option to write my own script for a "random" conversation with a "stranger".

If I could get an answer to this, it would be an instant buy for me if this is doable.

Thanks for the question. The subscription is NOT necessary to perform the effect. This monthly subscription (you can cancel at any time and the first month is free for you to try) will communicate the selected card to the stranger without you having to do anything. If you are not using this feature, you can still call a live person and either use a code to communicate the card, or use a forced card. You can also interact with one of several recordings in the app that sound like real phone calls. The recordings will reveal any card selected or named. [/quote]

Can you expand on the subscription method? Not quite sure what this offers. Communicate the selected card without having to do anything. Hmm

"No sleights, codes, forces, hidden accomplices or pre-show work"

Well, unless you want to do it the way they show in the demo. Smile


So I've seen elsewhere in this thread that there is a community of people willing to be the stranger.

What happens when the number of performers wanting a stranger is greater than the number of people willing to be a stranger at a given time? Is there something that lets the performer know they can't call a stranger currently?

I can also imagine that there will be enthusiastic volunteers at the start that lose their enthusiasm after the 50th or 100th or 1000th call.

Being able to create a recording simulating a LIVE CALL will be a perfect addition!

The subscription unlocks the texting feature. Who you enter the phone screen, the app will send a text automatically to the stranger you have specified in your settings (the person you are about to call). They will receive the text immediately and will know the card. Then, when you call them, there is nothing for you to do other than have your conversation and ultimately have the stranger reveal the card.

Your stranger is selected from your contacts on your phone. I have a group of friends that I use as my stranger. When I'm ready to do the show, or prior, I let my stranger/friend know that I'll be performing soon. When the call comes in to them from me, they just answer and we have our conversation. With the texting feature unlocked, there is also a button in the app to automatically send off an alert text to let them know that you are about to walk on stage.

Is the stranger required to have an iPhone? Can the call be made to a landline or Android phone?

Not at all! You can place the call to any phone!

I’m still not 100 percent sure I understand what the $4 a month thing even does. You say that it lets the stranger know the card without you doing anything, but what does that mean?

The monthly charge lets you use stooges or live accomplices over the phone, and enables covert texting to them, from the app so they will know your card ahead of time

Thank you for jumping in on this! It's appreciated. Also, the subscription sends the text message with the name of the card, but the app still allows you to call your stooge or live accomplice without the need for the texting subscription.
