This looks good but you say you borrow anyone phone then take them to Amazon website

So how do you borrow someone's phone over zoom ?

And what if they have the Amazon app on there own phone won't they think it's strange going to Amazon via a browser ?

Just asking as I think excellent product but would be good to know

Thanks

Hi Martin,

"Borrow someone's phone" is for the cost up presentation. Zoom shows obviously have another pairing method.

We recommend using Amazon from a different region to stop the app from kicking in. This is covered in the presentation and had never been a problem in any of the 100s performances I've given

This is covered at length in the instructions.

How this helps.

Hi Paul , thanks for your quick response

One last question, on the Apple store it says offers in app purchases

So other than the initial purchase what extras are available and what would be the costs

Thanks

Of course! Glad to help.

The in app purchase is the cost of the app. It's a free download. We've done it that way to help curb piracy.

Is the review always the same or is it a genuine review of the selected product?

Is Amazon being compensated or in agreement for using their name to help sell and actually use this commercial product? -Since the concern for piracy has been brought up.

Yeah, I’m worried too that Bezos’ successor will end his life in poverty.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

Hm, to be honest, I found the performance not very convincing… and do not like at all to guide spectators to some strange, never heard before websites… with nonsense names… David Penn had also difficulties… Jan

After seeing the demo on the Wizard product review I love the effect but have a question.

If performing close up with this effect do you have to secretly use your own phone (to key in a number for example) or is it passively used (it pairs with the spectators phone as you borrow it?) or is your own phone not used at all?

I only ask as I'm not a fan of having to key in a number when my phones in my pocket.

I picked this up today. Within 20 minutes of purchasing, I put it into action with success. Easy to set up. For me, this is going to be used a lot. Can’t say that I have any complaints. I’ve already set up a few NFC tags and worked on the remote paring method. I don’t think anyone who picks this up with say they regret it. For what it does its amazing. As for the price, I’ve paid way more for apps that's done way less without the ability to use someone else’s phone. I believe you’ll get your bang for you back with InstaPrime.

You don't need to have your phone on you at all during the performance, even before or after

That's the remote pairing method, if you're happy to borrow their phone then you can use the direct secret link like how other apps such as Inject works.

The first review will be the same for every product they search for so it'll need to be generic

Surely you must be using the real Amazon website?? It’s not as if you could ever replicate it due to the obvious sheer size. I would also suggest it’s good for close up as that’s what happens on the teaser trailer.


The way we've created the website it mimics Amazon's website exactly, it also auto updates too, you can search for every product the real amazon sells,

Hope that makes sense Smile
