I agree, $175 is a ripoff.

IMO the App don't warrant a hefty price of $125 (excluded the cost of the cube) . I suggest use the free Giiker App, and that's all you need to pull-off this effect.

The giiker has an open API Environnement, I'll see if I can work something up that I could share with community, 125$ is a lot for what it does, specially when you compare to apps like inject, dfb, wikitest, the art of predictions or ithumper that let you do so much.

125$ for that one effect is a lot IMHO, I wish all the best to Vincent but I'll pass on this one.

Now is $145.
I will go my own route and play with the APIs myself.

Hello, I'm Vincent the creator. Thank you for you good or bad message. It always helps. I will answer to you a little bit, for now the picture (realistic not like the super cube app) can go in you camera roll and website. the price of 80£ was for the pre-release in blackpool. but now we fix the bug and listen everyone for new effect. we have already a list of 15 news effects and the 15th April they will be released. At least some of them, and the rest in the future. The price goes up to pay those new effect !

I will be happy to speak with you about the trick !

Of course, the creator can ask how much they think it is fair - but with Inject and WikiTest at $75.00, I personally can't justify this for the double of the price, doing much less.

80 pounds is a very fair price considering the modifications. I would definitely re sticker mine though.


Pegasus, what modifications are you referring to?

Based on what I've seen, with the exception of maybe one orange sticker, the cube isn't modded in any way and is the same exact thing you receive if you were to purchase it elsewhere (although a couple modifications are taught in the instructions as a DIY, but it's up to you whether you decide to do them.)

I know for a fact that you can create a very strong effect using your Giiker as it is as Ustaad says, you can also still send an image to your website that to a lay audience that is a miracle and looks more then good enough without this app.
Itís way way overpriced for a slightly better image sent to your webpage imho, Itís literally just my opinion and your mileage may vary. Olly

I'm gutted I missed this at Blackpool for 80 pounds, sadly I couldn't make it.

Oil&Water could you post up an image from your website, so we can see the image quality that you mention?

Thanks in advance

Hi David if you have a Giiker cube you will probably already know that it mirrors the turns made by the spectator and that shows up on your smartphone.
If you screenshot that final image when they have finished mixing you obviously can turn around and both cubes match, which is wonderful in itself as Ustaad mentions.
That screenshot image if taken allows you using the bottom left forward button to send it to your website or wherever you like infact.
I am not saying itís a better image than the app image sold here, infact it definately isnít but itís still a photo of the solved cube and it may not be good enough for purists but to a layman itís still a strong moment imo.
It just seemed a lot of money for the app, but to be fair I did not know it was £80 at Blackpool so I was only going on the $175 price I saw it advertised a few days ago on here, at £80 however itís a different ball game and probably well worth the extra quality it can give you.
Very best wishes Olly 🙂

Thanks Oil & Water, I pretty much get your post above. But its a deal breaker for me the quality of the image. I'd want a perfect image in my gallery on my cell phone, and I'd be prepared to pay for it.

Some posts back you said this .....



Yes I agree Videoman but with my Giiker I can forward the result instantly to my website instantly with no app I just press the forward button literally at the bottom of the screen? Olly




Can you post an image of the Rubik from your website, so I can draw my own conclusions?

Thanks

I will take a screenshot and pm you it in the next couple of days to show exactly how it looks. Itís the giiker app end result screen shot and it looks like a photo of the app end result like you would see normally in your gallery but like I say it can be forwarded instead to your website etc. Olly

Great thanks very much Oil & Water much appreciated. I have seen the Gilker app end result. Its the end result on a website I want to see?

I must of misunderstood one of your posts! I though you'd said you had had used this process on your own website?

Sorry for the confusion!

Hi David I have used it on my website to send it there to see whether it worked when I first bought the Giiker about 2 months ago . I donít have a running feed on there so I deleted it as I was just seeing whether it worked on not which it did.
I can do it again to show you no bother at all as it may not be your cup of tea as itís literally a screenshot that appears in the latest news section, I am sure with a more eleborated and far more advanced website like yours is it would look much more professional on a running feed with this app.
It serves my purpose if I chose that route but with my limited performances of just a basic routine with the Giiker where I just go out the room until they have finished mixing , then returning with an identical matched cube is ok for me.
My photo is just an added kicker that maybe overkill for the way I am performing it thus far, itís a great cube the Giiker though I must admit. Olly

Kind regards

Also leaving a room is not a option in a real working environment.
With Vincent excellent app you donít need to leave the room.

I agree they have increased the price way to much 80 it was a bargain.
I bought the original cubes in Asia for a dirt cheap price. I personally think they should launch the app for 70 to 80.

Iím looking forward to the updates

Kind regards

So a spec will generally mix the cube in a matter of seconds and then you must return to the room pretty quickly to avoid any unnecessary dead time but still managing to have uploaded a screen shot of their cube to your website AND also solving a cube to match their cube?

Holy cow, you must be a super cube ninja wizard. Forget the screen shot, that matching cube routine is something I would definitely like to see.

Oh wait, maybe you just forgot to mention that you just draw one side their cube like in Kieron's routine?

Hi Kieron that is not the way I plan to present it but have just so far for friends in a formal dinner setting. I would probably do it back to back but I am trying to work out the best effects with it but it does have massive potential.
My website which I hasten to add I didnít make myself but I got it done professionally has a gallery where I can forward a photo straight to that gallery whenever I like. I can even send it to a section called latest and it will appear in both my photo gallery and my latest gallery.
Itís nothing revolutionary I can assure you if that and itís pretty main stream from my limited knowledge of these things, who created your website?
Regards Olly

IMHO around 60$ price point for the app only will be fair. Also if it will be digital product it will save the creator from the hassle of packaging and shipping and it will be better for users specially overseas users. I mean by digital is to send the link and activation code by email.

Sure it was a bargain at £80 - You got the Cube + the App.

Just the App at £70 to 80 is not a fair pricing IMHO. With that the whole thing works out to £130 with the latest version of Giiker Cube.

Note: We do understand that the pricing of an effect/app/book etc. is the sole prerogative of the creator. So the last word will be - 'Take It or Leave It'. Smile

IMO, any magician worth his salt should be able to pull-off this effect by using the free Giiker App. It's a NO brainer.

This might help those seeking an answer to the above - https://www.howtogeek.com/267320/how-to-......dropbox/ - - Please Note: I haven't given this a try.
