I have several tricks on my phone that don't require any apps. Most of these are only possible on android, because it has a much more flexible home screen. I was wondering if anyone else has any tricks like this.

One of my very early releases, but it does the job: http://www.theory11.com/wire/vincent-priour-3/first-grade/

I've also got an impromptu pin divination in one of my PDFs

I have one, where my background is a bunch of jumbled cards, so I tell them to pick one of the cards. Next I swipe over, and there is 4 cards od a different color. They choose one and it is removed from the home screen, and found in the battery pack of the phone. It is their selected card.

I do one on my old Samsung phone,i force a card and I ask the spectator to imagine it has been folded up and you can see one corner pip,i then swipe my hand over a black screen and a card appear's folded showing one pip,i then slide a card the same out of the back of the phone,this alway's get's good reaction's especialy when they look in the deck they have held and there is not another card the same.

I do a 2 part song revelation, once on their phone, once on mine (dual mindreading, spec as mindreader etc), using a combination of stuff that's already out there (no apps). Plays well.

I was messing around with my phone, and found a way to make apps invisible. It is on android, and won't work on iPhone. If you hold down the app on your home screen, then drop it, a little icon appears on it for a few seconds. If you click the icon you can change the apps icon for a picture. If you have a black background, you can set it with a black picture so it blends in. You will still have the title of the app under t, so to get rid of this you have to download an app called app name editor. Just follow the instructions, and rename the app to have no title. I am still figuring out how to use this. Any Ideas?

Beginning in September, I am writing a monthly column for [i]The Linking Ring[/i] on this very subject. Each issue will teach a tech-trick that does not rely on apps.

My DVD [url=http://www.jeffprace.com/silencer.html]The Silencer[/url] also features numerous tech-tricks that do not use any apps. Some of them use a borrowed phone!

Check out iNSTINCT on the Wire at T11. Impromptu 2 phase Mind reading effect and is in my opinion pure genius from method to effect.

In my new to be released Book OLIVIA there will be a whole section devoted to Impromptu Phone effects.
