The app must be purchased seperately Report this review

All that you get when you purchase this are three plastic spiders, three plastic cockroaches and about twenty sticky pads for adhering them to the backs of peoples' hands. I assumed there would be a code or something that would allow you to download the app for free. There is not. The app must be purchased seperately from the appstore for $4.99. The description should state this!
Apart from that its a great gag. I just felt a bit cheated.

To the other reviewer James who felt cheated because the download was not included as we all thought it would be judging by the advertisement. It is true that Penguin does not make it clear at all, that you must also pay another four ninety nine in order to get the phone app portion of this effect, as well they should. Shame on them, but if you are assertive and do as I did and call them on it, they will happily give you a credit for the extra money you had to pay for the download. If they do not, I will have a talk with them. I told them to be more clear about it & they should be adjusting the advertisement soon. Penguin has usually taken care of me whenever I had an issue. This gag/illusion is a SCREAM!! I mean literally. For the most part the reactions are huge & intense with a nice healthy chorus of heavy laughter afterwards. Just understand that if you buy this you are NOT getting the phone application... Just the cute, useful physical props. The download is sold separately & the info is supplied with the props packaging or just go to "my pet Boris.com". Penguin... In all fairness, due to the situation, I recommend you leave my FULL REVIEW uncensored. My reviews are thee most accurate & unbiased on this site. They should be respected as such. My reviews are here for a reason. Trust them. Achilles
EXTREME REACTIONS! Report this review

Easy to learn with guaranteed reactions. You get realistic looking creatures and the download is now my favorite one on my phone.
The first time that I performed this on a friend I got a response that far surpassed any on the product description provided by my friends at Penguin Magic!
I feel that this little goody has totally prepared me for my Halloween Shows this year.
Easy to do....Great Reactions...Fun to Perform.......and that's what it is all about now isn't it?

AMAZING REACTIONS, and its really quick to perform! Everyone that I showed my new app to had a genuine reaction to the spider appearing on their hand.
The app itself like any app is largely device dependant, the native camera on my phone crashes the app, but the in app camera shows a blurry picture. This is going to vary from device to device though. Additionally, you can only show this trick to each person once... fine for table hopping or hitting the street, but for us casual try-hards at work, don't think this will have much life in the office.
You have to purchase the app separately. I didn't realize this from the PM description however after the fact it was in one of the reviews.
I love the reactions from this gag, however after two weeks at work I had showed everyone that I was going to show, so to me it wasn't really worth the money for me. However if you feel like you can get more life out of it than I did, they I would really recomend checking out the website 'www.mypetboris.com' and select a cheaper pack, there's really no need to buy 3 spiders and 3 cockroaches for this trick.
Nice gag Report this review

If you have an iPhone... Buy it.. Also the app is sold separately but is worth it and I use to have the Jim pace (the web) this is by far much better...

While this one falls more under the, gag category than magic it really is a lot of fun! I broke it out and used it within a day or two of receiving it and the reactions were great (people DO NOT LIKE SPIDERS)!
I gave it 4 stars for 2 reasons. One: the app is a little buggy (pardon the pun) and on more than 1 occasion blinked out mid presentation and two: it could have included a bunch more adhesion dots, (you can buy more separately). That said, if you like freaking people out and getting great reactions you're gonna love the gag!
Skip the pack.. get the app! Report this review

Mixed feelings on this one.. the effect itself is great! For anyone who has performed 'The Web' will know the kind of reactions you can get. That being said, if you already own The Web, just download the app; you'll already have everything else you need and you'll be saving yourself a bit of money. I was a bit disappointed that the app wasn't included as a part of the purchase price.

A wonderful, easy to do trick that seems to excite everyone - adult and child alike.
C'mon People - Stop Griping! Report this review

So what the app is not included! If you want to do a effect, sometimes additional stuff must be acquired - glue, tape, magic markers...dare I say an app?
It's not expensive, you know. And then, clearly, you have a great effect. Plus, if you figure out how make an app that's already on the app store free to some and not to others, i.e. based upon a transaction at a third party, let ME know. It could be a million dollar business! So quit griping and spend a "tiny" amount more to have an effect you'll never get sick of doing.
- Cheers. : D
