I still have not given up on trying to get the Springboard option to work on iForce using my iPhone 6 Plus in Zoom mode.

Funny thing happened. I kept trying and now I found that I was able to get it to OCCASIONALLY work, but, it is inconsistent.
These rare working occurrences also involved a strange sequence to trick iForce into Springboard mode.

I still can not seem to get hold of Greg Rostami to provide guidance or I can affer to help him troubleshoot the problem.

Greg, do you monitor this topic ? Please PM me ....

HELP !z
:-(


I have just bought it and have the same problem on my iPhone 6 Smile

Hi Rowland....

Thanks for letting the Café know.....and verifying my complaint.

Maybe the more people who complain about the iForce problem on the iPhone6 in zoom mode, the more likely the problem will be fixed Smile

At least the iTunes store should warm people that the software does not work as advertised on iPhone 6 Plus.

However, I do plan on buying telephoto tomorrow and hoping that it works on my iPhone6 in Zoom mode !

Hi Expertmagician, I'm just curious since I don't own iPhone6, do you use advance or simple setting for the springboard? Have you try both of them?

It is something that winds me up that an app is still on sale without any warning that it doesn't work with some phones and in many cases it doesn't work with any phone. It is not fair for someone to purchase an app when the developer knows that there is a fix that they are working for it. This applies more to apps that don't work with any phones. I know many developers had problems with iOS 8 but I believe the app should not be for sale until the problems are sorted. I know developers in general work hard to get the problems sorted asap but that is no consolation to someone that has bought it only to find it doesn't work. That said telephoto works great on iPhone 6 and doesn't need to be in zoom mode.
Rant over lol

I tried BOT the Advanced and Simple setting to get to the spring board.....
The problem is that the 3 fingers does not work consistently to get to the springboard screen(s).

I have to try a random number of times and it may work sometimes....very frustrating....I can not figure out why it works sometimes and not others.

For all intents and purposes the Springboard feature us useless now on the iPhone 6 Plus unless someone can help or fix the bug :-(

Yeah I'll share ....the method is very easy.

Two finger swipe > choose a preset > draw something > Two finger swipe again > tap fake exit on bottom left of preset screen.

You see I never knew the 3 finger swipe method existed because I use to have an Android and never bothered to read the instructions for iOS when I got an iPhone. I've always used the 2 finger swipe and tap exit to go to fake home screen.

I don't own a 6 but I have been told that the icons you press to get to the correct (chosen) word, number etc are different so you might want to play with the fake home screen for a bit to get everything learned again.

The iPhone6 plus (not sure about the iPhone6), also has a gotcha with the spring board....
When you use the springboard, the ICONs work a little differently.
I suspect this is because their are more ICONs per page.

(ie. the 3rd row is skipped)....play with it and you will see.
But, at least the springboard works and it is consistent now Smile

yea and thanks !

Is it just me but I never use the springboard method. I feel the flip method is so much more cleaner and deceiving. The main two routines I use is a variations of Max`s Mavens positive negative with 4 coins, penny, nickel, dime and quarter and another Max thing called armchair bowler where the spectator uses imaginary bowling to knock down a certain amount of pins. I like these two routines because it`s very easy for the audience to follow and packs a punch Smile

I need more experience performing the effect....but, it seems to me that if you just do the effect once, the flip method is great...but, for a repeat, then changing methods may be better.
I need to play more in front of a real audience Smile

Yea, you can set it to be reflippable but to repeat the effect with the re flip locked is very easy to 3 finger swipe while "writing your prediction".
Give it a shot!

What a great APP, Greg! Thank you for creating it.

And, this thread is a virtual gold mine of ideas. I've come up with one myself. I haven't finished reading this entire thread in detail so I apologize if this is redundant to someone else's post.

I call this "motorized trans"(portation). I'm going to try and post a pic because it easier than typing out all the instructions on my iphone. Also, one thing I opted to do was re-order my phone "rotations", as you'll see. I alternate fast, slow, fast, slow... and I positioned the outs by the number of letters in each word and which of each two is slower and which is faster. I hope this makes sense as you look at the pic. This arrangement is, of course, intended as a memory key for me. Yours may be different.

OK, so foregoing trying to post a pic of this Iforce pre-set, I will try to describe it. First you ask you spectator to "picture", in their mind, a mode of transportation for getting from one place to another; "you, know... something motorized". Then you roll the iphone over for the appropriate out.

Looking at the back of your Iphone the pre-set goes like this....

At the top...
Position1/ Hare- CAR
Position5/ Tortoise- BUS
Both options here contain 3 letters. The CAR (Hare) would be a faster means of transport (the faster flip) than the BUS (Tortoise).

The first long side...
Both words contain 4 letters...
Position2/ Hare- TAXI; is the faster of these two
Position6/ Tortoise- BOAT; is the slower of these

The bottom flip... 5 letters each...
Position3/ Hare- PLANE; faster
Position7/ Tortoise- TRAIN; slower (in both reality and in the flip maneuver )

Hopefully, by now you see the pattern, but the last side contains the only exception.
Position4/ Hare- MOTORCYCLE; which is comprised of 10 letters, is, in my mind, a faster means of transportation than...
Position8/ Tortoise- SUBWAY

Of course, the relative speeds of these modes of transportation are subjective and you may choose to assign the positions in this pre-set differently, but for me, this is a great way the remember the positions/flips.
BTW, when I write the words for the pre-set, I print in all caps and I actually use a stylus and turn the phone sideways to allow more room for the word. Also, I print Motorcycle on two line and hyphenate the it like this.... MOTOR-
CYCLE
When, in the routine, I pretend to write these words with my finger, again I rotate the Iphone on it's side, for the sake of consistency.

Also, since you're asking the spectator to "picture" the mode of transportation, to me (and I think most people), PLANE and airplane would register as a hit; as would cab and TAXI, ship and BOAT, TRAIN and tram, etc., even MOTORCYCLE and motor-scooter or motor-bike, would be, if not a hit, at least a "very-near miss."

I hope these instructions are clear enough and I hope someone likes and uses this pre-set. Please let me know your thoughts! (No pun intended)

Enjoy!

One more thing.... If I think I'm dealing with that difficult spectator, I also always exclude submarine and helicopter at the beginning by saying "but, not extreme modes of transportation like helicopter or submarine, but rather, ways most people might get around." If this exclusion doesn't appeal to you, you could always replace SUBWAY with helicopter in the pre-set and flip TRAIN when someone says SUBWAY. And BOAT would work as a close-enough hit for submarine,

As I think about it, I may alter my own pre-set just that way and eliminate my exclusion of submarine and helicopter at the beginning of the patter.

Is there an easy way to reset the app to defaults without reloading the app? I put in a code in doodle and forgot what it is.

I just came up with a cool preset. You have to draw a rough picture of yourself (doesn't even resemble you) on all the side spots, and on one side put a dot on your wrist, and on the other put a dot on your ankle. Before you perform draw a dot on your real wrist or ankle. Then open doodle, start the preset, and draw the picture of yourself. Show them the picture, then hold the phone face down. Ask them to tap the screen in a random spot, and when they do, act like you felt something tap your wrist. Then flip over the phone, and show the preset image with the dot on the wrist. Finally reveal the dot you drew on your wrist.
Reality is a real killjoy.
