I wanted to let the magic community know that I've just released my magic app for the iPhone, and iPod Touch, Pick Any Card Magic Trick.

Effect:

The performer shows a face down card on the screen of the iPhone. A spectator is invited to test his mental skills by guessing the color of a random playing card. The spectator touches the screen and the card turns over to reveal if the guess was correct or not. After succeeding, they are to guess if the card is high, or low. After a few more successes, the performer lays the iPhone face down on the table, and tells the spectator that they seem "in tune" enough to try to mentally discern the name and suit of the face down playing card. Any card is named by the spectator. The performer turns the iPhone face up and allows the spectator to touch the screen to flip the card. Their named selection is on the face of the card.

The performer never touches the screen of the iPhone at any time, and any card can be named by the spectator, there is no force of any kind.

http://itunes.com/app/PickAnyCardMagicTrick

Written by a Magician, for Magicians, I wanted to create a flexible application that allows the performer complete control over the selected card transparently. This lends itself to numerous effects, limited only by the performer's imagination.

Over a year in the making, I'm pleased to finally offer this to the magic community. While it takes practice to perfect, the effect is something that you can perform anytime, under any conditions.

If you are unsure if this effect would fit in your routine, PM me and I will give you further details on the method.

Feedback welcome.

I picked this up last night and had a chance to play around with it a bit today. The best part about it is that you can have the result be ANY card. It is repeatable if you so choose with a different outcome. Perfect as a card revelation or an out if you wish. There are so many neat applications for this.

You can even show different cards at random. The method is extremely hard to catch and very clever. As Jason stated, there is a bit of a learning curve but it does work with a little practice! One of the most impressive and versatile Iphone magic apps I have seen to date.

This is a phenomenal bargain at $2.99! Highly Highly recommended. Lots of fun! Nice job!!

I have bought the trick, skimmed thru the directions, and opened the effect.
Looks great, good possibilities. However to go back and read the instructions you need a password that I did not get or missed somehow. So far no response for my requests for help from the maker of the effect. I need the instructions to perfect the technique but can't get to them. I most have missed something in my hurry to look at the effect.

I agree, as I have been struggling with this app since I purchased it. Is there a 3.0 issue or something?

I wonder why MR2Guy isn't chiming in here about these problems?
