Interesting concept but the zodiac icons look terribly childish.

Hi all,
just I want answer some common answer:

Q1. Do you need to touch my sign in order to make the app guess my sign?
A1. No... You have to read only the word underneath your sign without suggest anything.

Q2. Sometime I am not able to read the word underneath my sign appears in the middle of the screen...
A2. This happen becuase I put the sign on the screen randomly, all you need to do is move a bit the screen in order to read the word.

For any other question please contact me via private e-mail.

@TOM CUTTS: You are right about the zodiac icons the next time I will try to do better.

Just a little news: Comining Soon my version of ACAAN: This version will be the Holy Grail (With a virtual deck is very easy to create a perfect version).

bye,
Tommy.

ACAAN already exists: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=349446&forum=274&9. I'm interested to see your take on the iPlot, Tommy.

Tommy, I just want to see what you come up with. You have a very creative mind. How it will differ from any named card appearing at any named number as in Richard's app will be interesting.

Tom, thank you Smile

I have many ideas in my mind, but in this moment I have some little problem to solve first... This could be a reason for the delay in my release. Smile

Bye,
Tommy.

Initial thoughts regarding Astro Magic:

First of all, the methodology is very clever. It's based on an old technique, but the presentation does a nice job of disguising the principle involved.

Second, I agree with Tom that the icons, while cute, are not suitable for every performer's style. It would be nice to have some options for different types of sets that one could choose. The same thing would apply to the music.

Third, it might be a nice touch to have the icons move slowly in little circles, or perhaps, drift up and down, on the screen. That would help with any visibility issues and may create an additional mystical look to the presentation.

Fourth, an option to bypass the instructions, so that the performer can have a greater part in the presentation, and can take a little more credit for the revelation.

Fifth, some of the sayings/quotes are a little odd, and don't seem to be very inspirational.

Otherwise, I think you did a really nice job with this, and look forward to your future developments.

Thank you so much about your comment.

About the icons you are right, but when I decided to change it giving the possibility to select a new set of icons was too late...

About the movement is nice idea, at moment if you touch a sign appears the movement.

About the instruction are already you said, but from the second run: From the second run will appear a button in order to bypass the instruction.

Anyway comment like this one makes me to improve my next app Smile

Thank you very much, Philemon.

Tommy.

Yes, you are right, but at moment I didn't have more time to update it,
I have to solve some problem first...
Anyway, as I will have a bit of time I will try to release a new version.

Thank you so much to support my effects.

Bye,
Tommy.
