Ok I see. My mistake. I will correct that not on the next update, but the one after that, in 10 days or so.
Sorry and thank you for helping me debug it Smile

Silly question

is this wrong just on pg 65

or on 15, 65, and 115

or on other pages as well ?

don't worry if you don't know the answer to this

I just wondered - as I was going to use it a bit, but would wait for an update if other pages are affected

thanks again for the app

It's wrong for every page, because what happened is I inverted the even and odd groups. You can see that on the "Stack" tab.
Good news is it shouldn't affect the other exercices in any way, so you can train on exercices 2,3 and 4 in the meantime.

Even with these few kinks to work out, this is a great help for me.
It sounds like TheDuster and me process info the same way.
I used to practice Train Tracking by recording myself answering a series of yes/no responses etc.
Also, for me, most of getting this down has been brute force.
I try and sit down and read it front to back, like a regular book.
Just lots of repitition, and doing the mental transpo's everytime I see those #'s anywhere.

I really want to say thanks again for this early Xmas present Smile

Dear Pi Tester users,
I am happy to announce that Pi Tester 1.3.3 is available in your app updates.
It adds :
- A new "Visual aid" function, for exercices 2 and 3,
- A new "Videos" page (accessible from the "About" page), with tips and demos by Vincent Hedan,
- Compatibility with older iOS versions (iOS 9.0 or higher)
- Some miscellaneous corrections.
Please note : This update does not correct the « stackless » versions bug, which makes exercice 1 unusable for these versions. Pi Tester 1.3.4 will correct this bug in 4 or 5 days.

Memory routines usually leave me cold but, judging by the video performance, this is a really beautifully constructed effect.

Fantastic stuff.

Right, off the bat – I need to say that the app is a great addition

I am thankful for it

I want that to be clear as I am about to sound a little bit negative

I don’t feel I have a great memory

I feel like I have learned Pi really fast and rather well

This is a combination of [majority of the credit to] Vincent’s system, and a few little hooks I fortunately had [in built into my brain] of my own

So I have been fairly proficient at reeling off the content, I think phases 1 & 3 have been easy to perform… only just noticed phase 4 ‘liar’ – where has that come from [?]

My problem and the reason I have not performed this yet to a real audience – is phase 2. The main part of the routine. As when I hear five numbers, my head doesn’t work well in that condition. I get discombobulated.

So when the app has it written down – that is NOT good practice for me. As it’s easy.

That’s the first problem with phase 2

The second is… when I am responding [i.e. continuing the sequence] I feel like I am doing the complete opposite to what I would be doing in performance

What do I mean by that?

I am writing the numbers but projecting the letters.

Whereas when doing it for real, I am thinking the letters and speaking the numbers

Maybe it’s just me

Maybe what I have written doesn’t make sense to anyone else

But on the app – the focus feels the wrong way round

I don’t think it’s great to practice what you will be doing / thinking for a real performance

So….

I am going back to recording 5 random numbers on voice recorder, and then the next day testing myself.

As that is real life practice

I can then record my responses [to the pre-recorded three phases] and check

It was only from doing that I found out that I had a massive weakness in not being able to work out where I was with the numbers spoken – as it all gets scrambled in my brain

Anyway I’m looking at ways around this

And I will continue this post on the Facebook page – as I don’t want to reveal anything here

So… awesome book test [for my style] and the app is a great aid… but just like writing things down [to practice remembering them] it’s not a good recreation of performance conditions. And for me, and maybe others, in performance things could be a lot more difficult.

I see what you mean.
Next update will help you, as there will be a "speak" mode, where the 5 numbers will not be written, and only spoken by the app.

And phase 4 liar

Pi was amazing with just the 3 phases

When/where did that come from

Has there been more vidoes added, or a facebook group I have missed

Not complaining at missing out - just don't want to miss out if anything else comes up

I like phase 4

I'm thinking of going Phase 1, 4, 2, and then ending on 3

I actually like to only give three numbers for phase 1 - seems most people do 5?

I just like to start things off like it's harder and then let the later reveals seem more weighty

I'm already thinking of saying [phase 4] the first time I could tell by their vocal pattern which was incorrect - maybe then I pretend to work out the correct number by getting them to go through the numbers, then so I can't use their vocal pattern I get them to write down another sequence [once correct for themsleves to keep and another copy with one wrong digit for me] with one incorrect number... saying I need time, I'm not sure... and leaving that to one side... and then after the phase 3 ending [when they have forgotten abpout it] - giving it back to the spec and telling them the correct number... Maybe even interupting the next trick [having moved on from Pi] - as if I have just worked it out

Having said all that - I don't knwo what you have for phase 4 script

And th above may add too much - so take away from the normal three phases

Maybe it could just be another short routine - for another show - maybe for people who have seen pi 1, 2, 3 phases before...?

If I remember correctly, it comes from the explanations that came with the first version of the trick (the small one, without the birthday effect)

Martin, this really is a good one.
Here's my only "problem" with this effect;
People believe it lol.
Let me clarify (pre coffee).
This could easily convince people that everything you do, is based on an incredible memory.
Pi is a helluva convincer.

Thanks!

I'll be using Pi as part of my Mythamatics and Mental Health presentation for my University on... yes, Friday the 13th January 2017..... what a wonderful numerical day.
