I purchased at the special price this morning. So glad I did!

Thank you, Jonathan, for answering all my questions. You attentiveness is what made the difference.

App is EXCELLENT! Easy to use, great interface, and just super cool.

This is being worked on now. Also, give the app a try with calling a live call!

The live call does NOT require the subscription. That's a misunderstanding. The subscription unlocks a feature to secretly communicate the card to the stranger. There are other ways to accomplish this and still perform the live call. I give details on these scenarios in the video instruction. But, the app is designed to call a live person, at random and that is all part of what you get when you pay for the app.

I haven't performed it yet - but this is fun.

The idea of making a prank call is just enticing and captivating in itself I think, it is a brilliant premise.

I actually don't mind the US number as it turns out, I can justify it easily enough. The pre-recorded messages work well for me, but the test will be in the live performance.
Not having any friends means I can't vouch for the accomplice aspect as it isn't something I can make use of, but done well could be brilliant too.

"Hello, Mr. Wizard?"

Although not the same exact method, of course, it has the same feel.
Instead of saying things to clue in a stooge, it has a bunch of stooges
who happily want to play along.

I agree with "Xcath1" that a spectator would be able to figure this method
out on the fly, using the "only way possible" reasoning.

I agree also with "Illucifer" that it would be better using a phone from
a spectator and a simple random number force.

It seems that a spectator would tend to think, "Hmmmm, that magician
person is using their own phone, must be a special app or something."

We all know that a spectator will always believe his/her own impossible
explanation IS the method regardless of what the true method is.

So, it seems that a spectator would naturally come to the most obvious
conclusion of the method of this effect here and write it off as "some special app"

But, as with all magic, presentation, audience control, effect story and
true engagement with spectators can turn the most boring, obvious and
simple effect into the most amazing and incredible effect a spectator has EVER seen.

It's all about the story. Did it twice last night to sharp people. They are stumped. With the canned recordings. You just gotta sell it . . . which is what we do! Big love on this one and it is always there and ready to go!

I almost don’t want to tell anyone about this. Literal screaming reactions. Yeah the subscription is not ideal but also not necessary. But $3 a month for these kind of reactions is completely worth it to me. I mean it’s less than $40 a year.

The subscription is BRILLIANT and one of the lowest costs I've ever seen for a product enhancement this great. A bag of rubber bands lasts a week and costs $10. This is hands down the best effect, training and support for any trick ever. I'm a DEALER for Murphy's and a working semi-pro. This is a 15 out of 10 and everyone should buy it so the owner gets rich and makes more stuff for us all!

You won't need a lesson. Stat with the recorded Pizza shop and you can do this KILLER with 10 minutes of practice! All you need to know is in the short videos that are super well done and come with the product. You also get access to the FB group and can talk to others and find live partners to do the live and video versions.

I did this yesterday at a 7 year-old's birthday party for about 35 or so kids just to see how it would go down.

It went down very very well. To be able to add this to my Strolling, Parlor, Stage, Birthday Party shows, this has a lot of value for me.
