I'm hoping for a little clarification about one point.

In the routine where you never touch the spectator's phone, is there any issue with another performance somewhere else in the world, happening around the same time, interfering with you own performance?

Short answer is no. There will never be an issue. Each performer is given a pin code that lasts for 24 hours. After that it regenerates anew code. You can also refresh as well. So youíll never have an issue performing this at the same time. In fact, I was just performing the hands off version and there were 7 active users. Which did not effect me and I imagine it didnít effect them either.

Alright. Here are my initial thoughts on ReaList.

WOW.
I did not see that coming. This thing is packed with all types of cool features. It resembles a few of the existing apps all in one. Very clever and thoroughly thought through. Usually, and as of lately thereís been a lot of hype and no hop. This doesnít seem to be one of those. ( Thankfully ) within the first few minutes of the tutorial ( which is over an hour ) I was feeling that unique laugh build up. And the further I got into the tutorial the more it built up until finally it just came out. ( which got the weird eye from the people I was around ) itís Super impressive. You have to see some of the stuff to believe it or understand how easy Greg and his team has made this for users. Very user friendly.

There are a few methods that are taught. ( no smart watch method yet ) All three of which are easy to do and are justified. The third one is a magician fooler for sure. As I mentioned above, ReaList has a combination of existing apps and some of its own. I absolutely love DFB. And this has every feature Plus some. Although, I donít see ReaList replacing DFB because I feel that they both have its preference in the way Iím using them. So no conflict for me there. One of the best features is how you edit the *or*e item/person/place. A ton of time was put into that area alone.

One thing I do want to say is, in the ad copy it says youíll be performing in 5 minutes. I donít think that will be the case for everyone. But for the most part I donít feel that the majority will have any issues. The reason I say that is solely because I struggled for a few extra tries because of a certain ( . ) It was a little confusing. And Iím very familiar with app magic.

At this time, Iím really enjoying ReaList. Has a lot of potential. And itís a ton of fun. Iíve got no problem setting my pride aside to praise this effect. It is well worth the asking price imo. Actually, I feel like this is underpriced. So if youíre on the fence or want to save money, Iíd recommend this product before the price increase. ( pending a horrible malfunction during performance lol. Highly unlikely though )

Well thatís my initial review and Iíll be back once Iíve had time to perform this and get a better feel for it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you very much for that thorough review.

I hope ReaList brings you many magical performances.

all the best,

Ok, here is my official review now that Iíve had the chance to perform this a few times. . Fortunately this product will receive nothing but a positive review from me because of its accuracy, quality and audience impact. Greg has also went out of his way to address any questions I had. So here we go.


Iíll start by saying that this product has met all of my expectations. And surpassed them by miles. As someone who has criticized Greg in the past, this was a pleasant surprise. Ultimately changing my views. When you first download the app it is pretty clear that there was a tremendous amount of time spent on just the home screen alone. There are way too many details for me to explain here. The explanation is straightforward and very clear and fluent. Greg covers everything in detail and goes over the context of each step. That way by the end of it youíll have an understanding of what needs to be done to accomplish the effect properly. ( But if youíre like me, then youíll be practicing with it minutes of watching it ) You will recognize what I meant by the ďtremendous amount of time ď when you see the available options.

5-5 stars for that area.

As for the input methods. There are three taught. Two imo are pretty close to being the same. And one is a hands off version. Meaning you never touch ďthierĒ phone. This is going to be one of those things that some people will like one more than the other based on simplicity. I personally think that they serve an equally beneficial purpose. One of the options I enjoyed was the Practice page. I wonít go into much more detail other than that, but it will make this easier to do. Plus itís just cool to do. Each method is clever in its own way. While the methods of input arenít new, they are perfectly undetectable and justifiable imo. The methods will NEED to be practiced to become familiar with its functions. If you want this to work, youíll need to put in a little. So if youíre not willing to practice, or just donít like too, then I wouldnít recommend wasting your money on this.

Methods 4-5 stars. I took off one star only because the hands off method isnít new. Which in no way should undermine this product. Thatís just a part of the way I review products.

Bringing me to the difficultly aspect of ReaList. I donít believe too many will have a tough time picking this up. Itís explained so well that even someone who isnít familiar with electronics or navigating through electronics, should get a good idea of what to do. There was one specific and very important detail that had me confused. But after a few extra tries I had it figured out. I assume this will be the outcome for others as well. So with difficulty, I think it is a close 2-10. Iím also not going to rate it with my opinion on stars. Everyone is different and what someone might find less challenging, others may find it to be very challenging. My personal opinion is that itís easy.

Performance. Iíve had the chance to perform this a few times. All which had different reactions. When I perform mentalism, I donít do it in a traditional sense. So I expected the reactions to average. But they werenít. Every performance I did had great reactions. And ReaList definitely serves its purpose for what I wanted. I had to do the input method twice in one performance ( completely my fault) and it still worked out really well. I did not do all three methods. I only used two. The hands-off version looks just like youíd imagine it. Which is my favorite. It looks and feels like what I imagine real mental magic to look like. This one gets no stars as well because these are my personal experiences and itís not fair to rate it. I will say that this can make anyone look like theyíve got ďthe giftĒ . 😂

Effect. This definitely has that DFB feel to it. Youíre basically **r**ng any person/place/thing/movie onto someone but, with their device. Thatís what sets this above DFB imo. I will always use DFB. ReaList just gives an advantage when you have the option to use their phone. It also offers a hands-off approach. It has its bonusís for sure. One of the best things about ReaList is that it can be considered IMPROMPTU!! And thatís absolutely Awesome. Can you imagine having someone say show them something, and you do it with their own phone? Adding to the list of magic to do on the spot. Anywhere. Anytime. ( well, almost. Iíll get back to that ) I can only imagine what the updates to this would look like. This is already pretty impressive. So imo the only thing that could be added would be a smart watch option. ( hint hint )

Customizable. Everything looks as if it can be edited. That is a great addition. You name it, you can use it.

Now for the only con I can think of which puts ReaList at a disadvantage. The internet. Now I may have missed this portion in the tutorial because of how excited I was to practice. But from my understanding, this wouldnít work if there is no internet/network/data. Although you are performing this on someone elseís phone. Imo, this is a minor thing. Anytime Iíve asked someone to use their phone to do magic on, has had no issue allowing me to turn on their data. Not having service May be an issue. And Iíve performed at enough casinos and banks to know that service inside is not always guaranteed. I guess WiFi would be the next step. Now, if they donít have any service or data or WiFi isnít available, then Iíd pull out DFB and BOOM!!!! Problem solved. Lol.
To each their own I guess.


Iím sure my review hasnít covered everything some may want answers for. But itís an honest one. And this is a product that I will recommend. A ton of pros and not very many cons. When I think about the data thing, Iím reminded that like with all magic, thereís a time and place. And I feel that I know enough magic to cover times that some thingís cant be performed in certain places. As I mentioned on a previous post, I did not see me enjoying this as much as I am. Itís well worth the price and you get a lot for such a small price. Greg and his team should be satisfied and happy with this product. They did a great job.

Thanks Lonnie.

Is the below fixable? Is it a mistake in the tutorial? I do not like being confused to @@@@ whilst trying to learn something because Iím being taught the wrong way.

Yes. It can be fixed. Itís definitely something I overlooked and not the teaching. More than likely I was playing with my phone practicing when it was discussed. I went back through the appropriate time in the tutorial and got it squared away.

I can't believe, Lonnie is praising one of Greg's products Smile
That is means it is really a fantastic app.

Just one question is this effect is multilingual, I mean can it be translated to other languages specially RTL?


Thanks

From my understanding the language may be adjusted when buying the app. Although Iím not 100% sure. Perhaps Greg can chime in and clear that up for you. ReaList is a great product and Iím not ashamed to admit it. Lol. They did a great job of making the DFB aspect available on a borrowed phone.

I got it a few days ago, and love it. I can see a ton of work has gone into this even at
this early stage (no doubt Greg's team's experience with Inject helps lots).

I particularly love its mass pairing feature.

Thank you Lonnie for your amazing review and your kind words. We are currently working on new features for ReaList.
All of these features are based on user feedback.

The effect is in English with the documentation in English.
The app allows you to customize YOUR lists. Hence, the lists, the force items, and the preamble can be any language.

Furthermore, with the copy/paste function, you can instantly share your presets with others.
So, if you translate a list to your language, you can instantly share that with others via email/text or a social media post.

We are currently looking at allowing even further language localization.

Thank you stanz,
I love the mass pairing feature too.
Having EVERYONE in your audience see the forced item at the same time, reinforces the REAL nature of the list, as well as it allows everyone to experience the magic on their phones.

Thank you Greg and Lonnie for the info!
I was asking about the website not the actual app, it is good that the lists are customizable.
I hope the RTL support for the website will be added in the future.
I saw the app in a friend's phone, very much thinking put in this app, IMHO it is the most advanced app Greg ever created. I hope Inject 3 will borrow the ease of use of this app.

That you can "copy" a list and "import" a list is a big plus.
That's what is missing in Inject.

I agree ... that's one of my favorite features in ReaList.

People are already creating amazing effects that they are sharing using social media, email, or text.

Oh boy, what a great effect.

While I'm not a full time magician and my job is completely different, I always look to Everyday Carry items.
ReaList is the best EDC for me!

After several performances for my general test audience, laymen and other magicians I can summarize it as follows:

From the performer view:
This trick is super easy to perform and is absolutely capable for beginners as well. After 30min of practice you are ready for first performances.
It is possible to modify it for your needs and I assume further Updates by Greg will follow that you can customize it even more.

From the spectators view:
Because they can always see the screen, it will stay in their mind, that you never touched their phone. They can enter the URL while you explain the background of the page and your story.
They can finally scroll to the reveal themselves.

I talked to some of them after the routine and they confirmed me, that I was doing nothing on their phone. And I had my phone far away.

Street or stage:
While the Smartphone have a small screen, it is for 1 - 10 persons at a time. Not more, as long as it is not filmed or something like this.
As long as everybody can stand around your presentation and watch the Smartphone, it is perfect.
I prefer to have a table or something where the Spectators Phone can be placed. This gives a picture of isolation and that it is not in your hands.

Angles:
It is a full 360 trick. You can be totally surrounded as well can the spectator constantly watch your hands. They will not find any sneaky.

Weakness:
You need to take care of some Spectator Handling. It was figured out in the facebook group to the trick (oh, did I mentioned the community for the trick?) that your need to tell directly what should happen on the spectators phone. Otherwise specially on Android Phones it would not work.
Language support is currently missing. I'm from Germany and normally such page would translate into German. Currently the page and List is always english.

Strengths:
It is a devil and directly into the face. It is as well limitless. You can build so many stories around. Combine it with other tricks like peeking devices to push it out even further.
Constant improvements and updates like we saw it for other Apps that Greg published till now.
Access to a community that exchange about plots, use cases and other lists and stories.

For me the best magic purchase I did in 2019.
