I am kind of dissapointed of all the instructions that you need to follow to set up Cognito . It is complicated and confusing. If not then the instructions provided are prettt bad. I still do not understand very well how do you perform some of the effects . The reason is because there is no explanation. You need to figure it out

Then you go to the FB page and the information posted is overwhelming. You need weeks just to go thru it.

This is good for someone that spends a lot of time on their phones. I guess I am old school. I Rather invest in an effect that teaches all the ins and outs.

Maybe it’s the actual method that’s confusing? I personally prefer to read over watching instructions. It took me a few tries to get the basic method down. And a little longer to comprehend the method itself. Only then was I able to move on to the other methods and routines to find out what works for me. Not even gonna try to pull your leg, I practiced A LOT.
I think that if someone is going into COGNITO at it’s current stage trying to learn everything about the methods/app, it’s definitely going to be a struggle figuring out all of it at once. There is so much to learn. In a good way

COGNITO reminds me of any good mentalism book. (No plugs) You can’t browse through the beginning, then skip through until you get to the final pages expecting to understand the entire book.

As for the FB group: in my opinion, it’s better to have access to a lot of information about a product than to have very limited. If you ever want to take advantage of the groups information, there is a search bar at the very top of the group. You can type in whatever you’re looking for and I’m sure it will pop up.


P.S. I just remembered something in the instructions. When it came to the proximity method, I don’t think it ever mentions that you have to have the sensor covered for at least 3 seconds in order to activate the proximity. I would have never figured that out had I not asked. If I’m wrong about that, my mistake.

Yikes - the latest updates makes almost everything non-working.
What happened??? Pretty much unusable

I've reset my phone and also ran concurrent tests with my partner Mike Maione - we both get the same locks/errors/crashes.

The tutorial for me was very confusing - and I create numerous video and written tutorials myself and use magic apps often.

The fact that there are 3500+ people on the FB is not a reflection of anything other than perhaps letting everyone in.

Magic Mark & BMW Guy ... please stop over-hyping this not quite ready for prime time app.

Creators are going to need to please do MORE BETA TESTING first + fix all the bugs.

I received a comped eval version of this but I am just being straight - I wouldn't trust this for a paid performance.

Thanks

That’s too bad. 😞 I definitely hope they fix those issues. As much as I’ve complimented COGNITO, I often forget that it’s not a one size fits all. I’ve read that there are bugs that doesn’t allow everyone to experience the app the way it’s suppose to be experienced. I hope they read your comment, as I believe it’s honesty like this that will help them move forward. Either make or break

The Cognito team realized there were bugs in the updated app and, shortly thereafter, submitted a newer version to fix the bugs. Lloyd Barnes posted this earlier today (in the official support group):

Ahh. The dreaded black image that I was having. Glad it wasn’t just me. Must admit that’s the only bug I’ve encountered and I was an early buyer.

There’s more bugs than that.

I tried a minute ago the chaos -peek proximity input. 3 c chosen. Just doesn’t work to see the reveal. Try it for yourself.
What a mess.

I don’t have time to play with a buggy app.

I just tried exactly that. Changed Chaos Peek from High/Low to Proximity. Used the 3 of Clubs. Worked perfectly.

Did you hold the phone against your chest when you saw a 3 of Clubs or when you didn’t see one? Supposed to be when you don’t see one.

You do know where to get the peek?

Maybe you didn't switch on "peek when visible".

The proximity input is like of unreliable. I’ve talked to a few other people with the same issue

There are definitely a lot of legitimate concerns about the bugs. I’ve been fortunate to not have my real setbacks. I also use my own routines. As for proximity, it’s my favorite method and I’ve not experienced any issues. Clearly there are quite a bit of others who have. Is it ready for prime time? That’s been the question as of lately.

I am 100% baffled by the talk about bugs because I've not experienced any. At all.

Granted, I did NOT install or try to use the version that was released mid-week (which was quickly updated a day later).

I must admit, I am baffled by comments on the app not working. I have the recent update, and it works fine.

There have been a number of bugs, but they get fixed pretty quickly. The proximity input doesn't work well for me though.

I think the best thing they could do is move the bug and feature management away from Facebook as it's a nightmare trying to understand whether something has already been raised or whether they're already working on a fix or feature - I'm not a Facebook fan, but it certainly wasn't made for this.

I wish there was a separate group for Android owners as all they do is winge and report bug after bug after bug.

Exactly this. I have been a software developer for almost 15 years. And did my fair share of app development aswel... this is really amateur hour. Like you said, they should set up a bugtracker seperate from facebook. That makes it more manageable and people can follow along. Personally it feels like some 13yr old built this without any real experience in the "real" world. Anyone can create an "app", but with experience you can build an Application.

The Facebook group is very slowly turning into the inject ‘debacle’ group. Important information lost within nonsense and niff naff and trivia.

Benke Smith just shared his latest project for Cognito. Integration with TimeSmith! Absolutely brilliant!
