Hi Gordon,

It's not designed to work on the iPad, but it is on our list of things to do.

I've just started a poll in the facebook group. If enough people want to use the app on an iPad, we'll make it!

Here's the link for the poll: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CardNow

Cheers,
Damian

I went to the page but can't vote as it is a closed group. Do I have to be a purchaser to be part of the group?

That would be very nice and not only this app but also Myke Philips excellent iUnlockyourmind.
I used this with my iPhone but nowadays own a Galaxy S4. Lots of people in Europe made the step to the Android platform which to me (and I'm a laymen when it comes to programming)seems to be less limited then an iPhone.

Unfortunately, there has not been enough interest in Card Now for Android.

The second that changes, I'll invest the money. However, it has to be a financially viable decision. It's a long way away from that at the moment.

For those who are interested, here's the place to make it known ...

In the mean time, I'm in talks with a couple of programers who may be interested in taking on the Android conversion as a pet project. I'll let you all know when any of these avenues produce something that will become a workable version.

Thanks for the idea rodrigomc2000.

Have you seen the method to be 'always ready' that's described in the instructions?

If you get set up with the app, and then press the 'sleep' button on your phone, when you next 'wake' your phone, Card Now will still be running.
This looks like your phone is waking and going to your home screen, but it's actually Card Now's fake home screen. So, as far as your audience is concerned, the phone is doing things that it can't really do, straight from the home screen.

Hope that helps.

Hi Parkrocker,

I'd be making Card Now for Android as quick as I could if the numbers added up.

Based on the feedback I've had from people who have shown interest, I'd be investing a sizeable sum of money so that 100 or so people could use the app on a device that I don't even use myself.

At least with Card Now for iPhone, if I hadn't made my investment money back I'd still have created a great app that I'd be using myself.

Unfortunately, based on the market research I have done, it would be a poor business decision for me to produce Card Now for Android. As soon as that changes, I will make it.

Hope that makes sense. Sorry that it's not what you want to hear.

Damian

PS Here's the link to the page that could help to change my mind ..

PPS If anyone REALLY wants to change my mind, feel free to put your money where your mouth is and invest in the project Smile


Make it 101.

Thanks John, I appreciate you adding your name to the list.

I'll let you in on the numbers:
109 say they would definitely buy it, 26 say that they probably would.

I'd love to get it made for you, but those numbers don't come close to making it a viable investment for me.

I'm not forgetting you though. I'm keeping the details of everyone who fills in the form and will let you all know the second that it becomes a viable option for Android.

Until then, it's iPhone only.

That's great to hear Mike! Smile

Any chance you could leave a review in the App Store?

You are the first person to tell me that they have bought an 'extra' phone just for Card Now. Several others have told me that they have switched to iPhone just for this app. It's very rewarding to hear!

Thanks,
Damian

I have just bought the app and I am looking forward to use it in my next show next Saturday. I use all the time card to phone too. I have tried many magic apps and this is the one I use the most and gets the wildest reactions.
It would be great if we could add our own backs design as some times I am not using Bicycle but the local playing cards, instead.

Congratulations Damian for your creations.

I did Card Now on my iPhone for my magic buddy with the Galaxy S-5.

He was very impressed.

I told him the name of the app and he tried to buy it right then.

That's when I found out iPhone only for Card Now.

Just saying........

I understand the reasons but having this app iPhone only is like seeing a particularly fine meal but one which, to eat, you have to first wade through a river of crap and then be stabbed repeatedly with hot pokers, and that's just in the queue at the apple cultists store. Nothing is worth joining the thrice the price for nothing more, explodes on impact with carpeted floor, cult of apple Smile
