From the creator of Email Wizard, an amazing app acquired by the legendary David Copperfield.
The effect: The magician hands a deck of cards to the spectator, invites them to cut the deck, then instructs them to deal the cards down on the table, face up. The spectator can stop anytime and even change their mind if they wish. Once the spectator is happy with their selection, the magician reaches into his pocket, pulls out his iPhone, and turns it on. "That's funny that you stopped on that card, because earlier tonight I took a photo." The magician then clearly opens the iPhone's photo album and scrolls to the last photo added to the album. The magician taps on the thumbnail, and the enlarged photo shows the magician holding up the chosen card.
Reveal any prediction that you can take a photo of! Playing cards, ESP cards, objects, or places. The possibilities are only limited by your creativity.
The 101 Deck app is one of the few magic apps that does its "magic" without the spectator knowing that an app was involved. If done correctly, the spectator will never suspect that an app was in play. Many of the magic apps currently available make no effort to disguise themselves, which in the mind of the spectator makes the effect a little less impressive. With this app, the "How'd You Do That?" aspect is placed entirely on the performing magician and not the device.
This app is meant for intermediate+ amateur and professional magicians. This is because the app is not entirely self-working and some skill with a card deck is required. The app was designed with the "101 deck" in mind, which is one of its simplest uses, however there are many other possibilities. If you don't already know what a 101 deck is, then this app is probably not for you. Although a 101 deck is not included, instructions are included on how to make your own as well as perform the effect with a 101 deck.
- You end clean (you're viewing a real photo in the actual Photos application), and the device is inspectable at the end of the trick.
- Can be done surrounded, with the device in full view the ENTIRE time..
- Short setup before each performance and fast reset.
- Includes demo video that shows setup and operation of app.
This app works best on the iPhone 4 or 3Gs running iOS4, or the 3G running OS 3.1. It is not recommended for the 3G running iOS4 as the phone is too slow to handle the processing needs of the app. With an iPod, you'll need a digital camera to take photos of your prediction(s) and then load them into your camera roll.
