Topic: Any Dice App! Amazing idea! Please read if you own or thinking about getting it!
Message: Posted by: weapon (Jun 9, 2014 10:40PM)
So I really like the Any Dice app. Honestly the best feature to me is the bonus Ios Notes effect.
To me this effect it worth the price of the app!
So I wanted to make it where I can hand my iPhone to a spectator they can unlock my phone, scroll to my Notes app, write something in the Iphone notes app, lock the screen, put it away in their pocket and I instantly know what they wrote.
With Any Dice you would need to open the Any Dice app and choose the bonus "Notes effect" yourself then hand it to them. This is still good and I always have done it this way but I wanted MORE!!!! Don't we all?

So I managed to change the Any Dice app icon the the Ios Notes Icon using a bit a simple computer skills. Now all I need to do is have the bonus effect "Notes" running in multi task.
When I give the spectator my phone and ask them to open my Notes app and compose a new note they can scroll trough my phone and they will find only one Ios Notes app because the real one is hidden in a folder.

This technique of changing Icons and program names can be very useful for some Magic apps. Below I added some screen shots Of what it looks like.

I heard a new update of Any Dice will be out soon! Looking forward to it!

I've been using the notes feature to get my AN for izzy star - completely hands off method of obtaining this and totally fries specs when you nail their birthday.

Ah the app is so good now. I love the new feature where it's sends the total number of dice, esp symbols or colors to your phone without thumping you!!

I just want to add. If you Jailbroken your iPhone. You could use Applocker tweak to locked the "Notes" app. With this you ready to go anytime even without preparation. When you ask the spec to open the app. The lock pop up show up, then you can have an excuse to get your phone back and make a quick setup. Then press the home button. After that you can ask your spec to try again (your phone won't ask for passcode again unless you lock the phone #sessionlocked)

For me, the tweak can protect me from other ppl (my kids) as well. Yes, some ppl tend to borrow my phone sometimes.

Thank you for your share weapon. Just as you said above. I use this method to other app, and it amazingly looks like the real one.

5s is not able to be jailbroken. :(

All you need to do is change all the normal icons to the ios7 note icons. You can download the icons http://www.iconspedia.com/pack/iphone/
Also Jaizon, my 5s is jailbroken. Please check ModMyi.com

Dantalian, great idea!

I just had a idea. What if it is possible for the next update to make it when you choose notes it will log out of the app and change the icon to the notes icon so you can give it to your spectator. This would work the same way with the calculator. I am not sure if apple would allow this but imagine the possibilities.

I wish they can do that. I have one request though: Please don't go to f*** homescreen.

I bought it and I love the app, however the notification delay doesn't seem to work and the notifications don't appear in the notification center on the lock screen.

Otherwise it's fab. Congrats Alan.

I'm not sure if this is the right answer. But, after playing with this app a little, it shows up in my notification center. Not sure why

@Users of the app: I just realised that my post may tip the method, if so please tell me or/and warn a Café moderator. I wasn't thinking properly.

@Daniltan: Could you please PM the way you have your settings laid out? It would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
