But will the international edition be a whole mother app purchase?

Or will it be an update to the existing stranger app?


The existing app will be updated for free with features that will make the app more international. If you would like more detailed information, please feel free to email me at stranger@jonathanlevitcom.

I have been performing the old trick "Hello, Mr. Wizard" for more years than most of you have been alive (50 plus years). When The Stranger came to my attention, I was intrigued, but cautious because of the price. Curiosity finally won out and I downloaded the app. My review of this app? WOW! AM I GLAD THAT I PULLED THE TRIGGER ON THIS ONE! Jonathan has produced an absolutely wonderful app! The app itself is amazing, but the performance details are even more amazing. He has included more little details than you can imagine. He left no stone uncovered. The magical effect itself, the tutorials, the many different options available, all make this app well worth the purchase price. While eating lunch at a local restaurant today, I decided to try out the effect on two waitresses and the owner before I left. As I walked out, I heard the three of them saying things like, "How could that even be possible?" "That was a completely random number that we chose!" "I've never seen anything like that!" "How the heck did he do that?" The best part is when I go back to that restaurant, I can present the trick with a different ending. Bottom line? Don't cheap out on this one.

Thank you StarManager for the welcome, but I've been around since 2002. I don't post much, so the board must categorize me as a "New User". Go figure. GLITCH!

Reminder that you can use the Pizza version in broken English easily in the current English version as it is fast and clear. Just use a international prefix of +1 and a 10 digit "USA" number. Also the connection used with real people is the best and that can be done by anyone in any language.

That's right! And, if calling a live person, other than the phone number format on screen (which is being addressed in an upcoming update), the app works perfectly.

I've been this in the U.K. I justify it easily enough but I don't think anyone cares about the US number.
The volunteer enters the numbers, it rings and is answered. There is very little to question.

Bottom line, this effect is totally useful, including and especially the live feature, for everyone, and every language already. There is a wildly helpful support group and an engaged developer who will support international users. Take the plunge and immediately add the live option. Best bang for a few dollars I have bought this year!

Just another reason to get an iPhone Nathan . . . . Though that Note 10 is tempting . . .

I love all the nay sayers! The fewer people doing this effect the better as far as I'm concerned. Sorry Jonathan. I love you and I wish you continued success, but seriously this is one of the best effects to come out in a very long time!

I strive for my audiences to go crazy. I like them to react loudly and insanely, screaming and jumping up and down. These are the reactions I'm getting with "The Stranger". The psychology is perfect. It seems so impromptu, so impossible that people FREAK OUT! So that's the bottom line! This is a killer app.

But that's not all I like about "The Stranger" The app has many options to fit any performance situation and your own style. The menus are easy to navigate. The tutorials are fantastic, all built into the app. You can even print out the scripts (directly from the app) of the pre-recorded conversations so you can practice and make the fake calls seem totally real. When you are using the pre-recorded conversations, Jonathan has built in an invisible method for you to know the exact second the recorded voice will be speaking - so you can time your interaction with the recording perfectly.

I was reluctant at first to spend the $$ for this app. However, I was convinced by a colleague (a well known working pro) to buy it. Glad I did. The app is brilliant technically and magically. He put a lot of time and money into this and deserves all the success and praise he's been getting from his users.

So don't buy this. You don't need it. save your money. Let me enjoy it for myself!
Mediocrity is greatly under rated!

I seriously thought all of this above sentiment last night. Was doing the effect and wondering . . . When will someone blurt out that they saw a guy do this last week and he "randomly" got a Pizza joint too!!!! So after some thought, I''ve also decided that I appreciate this effort and effect SO much that I want everyone else to STOP doing it.

To that end, the iPhone app is buggy. There will never be an Android app because, face it, even ANDROID doesn't work by itself! I hate this trick and all you guys out there save your money and do not buy this! I too want it JUST FOR ME!
