Café,
I'm looking for a dozen or so people to test an effect I'm working on. Please PM me if you are interested.

qualifications:
with your PM please provide to me your years in Magic, what type of phone you have and your knowledge of smart phones(first smart phone ever, had millions of phones, etc)

Effect:
You BORROW a spectators cell phone, have them open their Facebook app and go to their friends list. You scroll through THEIR friends list pointing out how many friends they have and how you couldn't possible know who any of their friends are or possible set anything up. You face the phone towards them as the list is scrolling and it randomly stops on a group of friends. Immediately you can begin explaining one of their friends pictures and their NAME.
Points to note: 100% impromptu. No prior knowledge of the person, or their friends. You 100% can't see the phone when it's scrolling and can immediately describe as much information about a single person on the screen as possible. No apps, no funny webpages, no set up. again 100% impromptu.

-Bill

There are many different ways to perform this effect. And I think the method you come up with may have been exist for a long time.

I am interested to test it. For me it sounds like CURVE BALL by Oz

Methods are 100% different. The spectator can actually see their friends list scrolling by. They can see the screen Every second of the trick and the secret move is done in full view!
