Topic: Best Magic App Survey
Message: Posted by: BrainMagos (Aug 25, 2013 11:13AM)

I really enjoyed surveys where folks on the Café listed their favorite books or tricks in the past and wanted to start one for apps! It doesn't need to be plateform specific and I would like to ask everyone to list their top 3 favorite apps.

Here are mine!

1. Mental Killer
2. Card Now
3. iPredict +

Let's get this started and in a few months we will make a list of the top apps and aggregate all the votes!

Oh, man! That's tough.

1) TeleFoto
2) HandzOFF
3) iPredict Pro

As I'm typing this my mind has changed many times...
Message: Posted by: Mark_Chandaue (Aug 25, 2013 01:27PM)

But handzoff deserves to be in there too.

Message: Posted by: BrainMagos (Aug 25, 2013 10:26PM)
Awesome votes! Lets keep this going guys!

2 apps I use all the time:

1. PhotoPrediction (ok, this is mine, but still is the most used)
2. iForce
Message: Posted by: GordonTheHypnotist (Oct 3, 2013 01:59AM)
1. TeleFoto
2. Supa Thump
3. Magic Spider.

1 & 2 I use professionally because they are so versatile and 3 because it is just so much fun watching people jump.

Rostami rules!

I bought Ipredict pro and it has moved to number 2 for me right behind Telefoto. It puts Boris at number 4. I would probably get Handzoff or IUnlockYourMind if they were available on the android platform......hint hint
Message: Posted by: Myke Phillips (Dec 28, 2013 08:11AM)
We would love to bring iUnlockYourMind and Handzoff to Android but we don't have the time or money to do so unfortunately. :(

Message: Posted by: parkrocker (Dec 29, 2013 11:06AM)
1. telefoto
2. supathump
3. iforce

ipredict pro would be on the list aswell, actually on 1., but it isn't working in germany (which is not Greg's fault)
Rostami Apps are the best!

I predict pro

Love to try I unlock and handsoff
Message: Posted by: Paul Rathbun (Jul 30, 2014 02:59PM)
I searched on the app store for handzoff and it came up with nothing. What do I need to search for to find this popular app? Thanks.
Message: Posted by: ZachDavenport (Aug 7, 2014 11:10PM)
The only magic app I use is iforce. I do other tricks on my phone, but without apps. I would get more, but all the good ones are so darn expensive!
Message: Posted by: James Fortune (Oct 10, 2014 12:39PM)
I bought iPredict+ only to find you have to dial an American number which is either very expensive or most British phones won't allow.

So, if you are a Brit, unless Rostami Magic gets UK numbers, DON'T BUY iPredict+. :kidding:

A little late to the party, but my votes are:

1) iPredictPro
2) Telephoto
3) iForce

I also looked up Handzoff and it isn't available on the US or UK market vie the Apple app Store.
Message: Posted by: parkrocker (Dec 20, 2014 12:20PM)
Hard decision
I go with
iPredict Pro

I bet card2phone would be in my list too if it existed for android ;)
Message: Posted by: Adeofspades (Dec 20, 2014 02:41PM)
1. MagicwebFX
2. Telefoto & iPredictpro combo
3. Anydice
4. Iunlockyourmind

Sorry, I couldn't bring it down to three!
Message: Posted by: Jim Mullen (Feb 20, 2015 03:55PM)
I notice that a lot of responses are for iPredict Pro. I do the basic iPredict but not the Pro version. What are the main differences between the two? Should I switch to the advanced version?

I also have been doing NFW for awhile and have a nice little routine using a stacked deck for learning the spectator's selection. Nevertheless, I would like to do something like NFW using a single swipe signal like that in iPredict. I also like the return signal in iPredict that lets you know that you have the right card entered. Is there a something like NFW that includes this features.

Hi Jim sorry that it has taken me this long to respond. I just saw your post today. The differences between the regular and pro versions are vast. The Pro version let's you customize everything. The swipe interface is the same but the response can be your own phone number and voicemail or a text message. You have much more freedom on what you choose to predict. It's only limited by your imagination.

For IPhone :
Magic Spider
Magic Trick #1

Message: Posted by: george1953 (Mar 31, 2015 07:31AM)
For me its
1. Telefoto
2. Telefoto
3. Telefoto

Do you guess from that, I like Telefoto ;-)
Message: Posted by: mindacrossrhino (May 31, 2015 02:35AM)
Three apps I really like:

1:Houdini's last magic trick (a very clever app that comes with a rready built hook and opportunities for some great patter)
2: My pet spider (brilliant, reactions are fantastic, just check for heart conditions first)
3: Holografx (requires the set too, but a really great modern representation of the Pepper's Ghost principle}.

I use Card Now all the time.

On the back of my business card I have a 52 on 1 printed.

So I ask someone Think of a card, and tell them I have a prediction in my iPhone.

Then they tell me and I produce 52 on 1 ala Card Now and show them their card and turn over
the card and It's my business card too.

Then Sometimes I open Metal Killer and call the female British voice to tell them what their card

I have fun with these two apps.

IForce is the only one I use, second vote goes to Card to phone which is a amazingly fun toy, but I don't really perform it to anyone.
Message: Posted by: BrainMagos (Jan 24, 2016 03:27PM)
Okay thank you everyone for your vote. Let's keep this going until the end of January and we will have a winner then!

As someone who has just starting doing research on phone apps, this thread is a true gem!! I will probably purchase every single one of the 'top 5.' I can't add anything knowledgeable to this thread, but I coincidently just happened to watch Akirafist's video review of Telephoto. Not only did he call it hot sauce...he also called it the best trick of 2013 and possibly the best trick in 5 years. Who would have thought an app could be so powerful. Anyways, thanks to everyone who shared their favorite apps. Can't wait to see the winners.
Message: Posted by: magicpharmacist (Jan 28, 2016 08:20AM)
I had a little free time this morning so I tallied up some votes.
Telefoto 12
iPredict pro 9
iForce 8
My Pet Boris/spider 5
iUnlockyourmind 4
Supathump 4

The top 4 don't surprise me, but I am surprised that no one has City Prediction on their list.

The best apps that I own. I only listed apps that I have because I don't have enough information about apps that I don't own. :bunny:
