Card2Phone - Magic
I've just released this Magic app for iPhone and iPod touch. I'd love to hear what you think about it!

Make a chosen card or coin appear inside your iPhone. Shake the card around. Magically pull the card out off your iPhone and show that it is the chosen card. You can even choose a custom background.

You can use in your routine with a mercury-folded card.
It's also posible to use coins as well.


Review - by Zac [5 stars]
Quote:
This app is great! I can use it in so many if my street performance magic. It's a great way to open up to the trick Torn by Daniel Garcia, or Sick by Ponta the Smith. Also it's really nice quality, I think if your just going to download it because it looks cool it's not worth it. But if your going to put it into your magic routine it's amazing! It could be a trick opener or like have a perdiction written on the card and pull it out. There are endless possibilities and it's well worth it if your a magician.



Now is the update (Card2Phone 1.2) online!

Interesting...but this looks like something I would never perform.

Okay, thanks.

I like to have the spectator pick a card.. mercury fold it and let then let the spectator shuffle the deck.
Then place the card (palmed) behind the phone - make it appear - pull it out of the phone and reveal it is the selected card.

You should make this for free this weekend.

Think of it as publicity...

... or charity.

Here I offer some free business consulting for halskovMagic and I get insulted.

I mean, if I had an iphone or ipad I would be able to understand the criticism.

wait.

I just realized that this would work with the i-pod.


I guess the criticism was justified :D

This has potential to be a decent program, I am unsure of your coin choices however I think you should have advertised the coins as well as all the cards used.

I could see this working well with a few things like scotch and soda but guess what there is no Centavo.

Some common coins I think should be used would be the following:
US Half Dollar
US Quarter
Mexican Centavo
English penny
I personally would add a folded US dollar as this would be great with some other effects.

The two US coins that you use are a Dime and Silver Dollar and These in my opinion are not used as commonly as the quarter and Half dollar.

Its ok for occasional use with a card but with some paper money and better coin selections I think this app could actually take off. I may even recommend it if you make these additions.

Thanks Roy!

I will for sure look at the things you point out - it's nice to hear how I can improve it :)

Have a nice day.

I got this today and I think it's fun and clever. I am a sucker for "magic apps" and this is a great one. The coin choices - although limited - are very cool but the folded cards are what makes this app. I recommend it. I also recommend to the creator that he adds more common US coins. A half dollar (both Kennedy and Walking Liberty) and a normal US Quarter would be great.

I've been looking into this, but I'm not really sure how "me" it is yet. I'll wait for a few more reviews...

Thanks Magicman4646 - I'm currently working on a larger update which adds more common coins (Euro, US and UK), folded dollar, (+ higher resolutions graphics for the iPhone 4)

I really appreciate your feedback.

I must say, I really love this app. I would like to see a mexican centavo but what you are adding will really help this app. I think its close to perfect Magic meets technology and for anyone says that using a ipod in their routines seems unordinary, I disagree Almost everyone owns either a Iphone, Ipod touch or simialar it looks very common. I get great reactions from this, there is no fumbling around with buttons because you can set the background to a screenshot of your ipod, all you have to do is give it a little shake and the card or coin appear. I even let the spectator hold the phone and tilt it in different directions they see the card or coing stuck inside and when I pull the card out it looks really good, its so visual even better than John Kennedys mystery box (which is not an ordinary item) but still its great! This brings it to a new level because you can see half the card in the phone and half coming out or if you prefer you can pull fast, there are no timing issues, the card leaves when you want it too. I love this app but I do want to see more Coins, I am looking for an update but I don't see one yet, I will be grateful to see a mexican centavo and some good american half dollars. I have so many Ideas and the Inventor seems open minded and will probably add effects within reason, all I had to do was ask. This is the best app I have ever downloaded, Iforce is nice as well but this is my favorite as I love very visual magic.
