I have watch the instruction video a number of times, I also read the instructions a number of times
and still no luck getting it set up.
I join the group on Facebook, no-one every got back on why
this is so hard to set up and what I was (or the app) doing something wrong.
I order this before
any review I wish I would have waiting to save myself $30 bucks.

There's a problem with everything and no easy way to get help. Can't even setup first screen and
program just freeze with no response

Ok. I LOVE this app. I think it has many potential mind melting applications. I took one star off
because the instruction, while cheerfully and enthusiastically rendered, is quite confusing,
mysteriously organized and doesn't address some key points (e.g., the mechanics of peeking on a
smart watch). I'd encourage the authors to find someone who teaches well to recast it. This would
make it a 5+++ product.

I want to learn this trick, then love it. But the video seems to start off in the middle, as if we
have already seen what the product can accomplish. I felt like I walked into day 3 of a class and
nobody told me what the class was about.
It also takes a while to set this up on an
Android. By the time I figured it out, I lost interest in pursuing the video. Maybe soon.

This app is has so many possibilities. I have had it for a week now, and it has sparked so many
ideas for me already. You can generate your own routines and customize input/output methods to
create unique performances to fit your style and audience.
Does it have bugs right now?
Yes, but that is expected with it being so new, and it doesn't prevent you from being able to use
it. The creators are ACTIVELY addressing the issues that users are reporting, as well as adding
more features and ways to customize it to your needs. The facebook group already has over 100
routine files uploaded and it seems the surface hasn't even been scratched yet! Looking forward to
all that comes of this project.
My wife is a tough cookie when it comes to my magic... she
was blown away... and with the multiple input methods I was able to switch the input method and run
the same routine again with her now holding my phone... she didn't even know what to say
afterwards.... but I did... Cognito user for life!!!

I wanted to like this, but I do not. To begin, the instructional video is meandering and confusing.
Editing and scripting would have helped. The presenter is obviously excited and enthusiastic about
the product, but that does not make up for his rambling and monotonous delivery. Tighten it up, man!
The setup instructions, at least for me, were confusing, and once I got the app set up,
trying to understand how to use the it was an exercise in frustration.
themselves? Nothing spectacular. Nothing that I would consider a real fooler or even particularly
Apologies to the producers, but in my opinion this is a real waste of time
and money. And speaking of money, I paid a nice price for this app and deeply regret the purchase.
This is going directly into my electronic magic junk drawer. Bummer.
Color me disappointed,
but also color me to blame. It's my own fault; should've taken more time to explore the app. Live

I am not sure what's going on with all the negative reviews, there is over an hour of videos
explaining the app, plus more videos on the Facebook page. It's very easy to set up and use.
I was using this above 15 minutes after getting it, it's an amazing effect.
keep updating the app based on the Facebook group's suggestions. Someone mentioned they want to have
a different ACCAN method and the developer said they would add several options for the more popular
Seriously, I don't understand all the negatives, it's a must-buy!
The app is based on a clever principle. The method that used time seemed most magical. All the other
methods seemed a bit lackluster. For those methods, most people I performed this for had a sense of
how it worked--which, as we all know, kind of kills the magic.
I did like that it was
customizable. So, that is a win. I would have liked to see more examples using the time method.
The instructions were very difficult to watch. You can tell Lloyd was very passionate, but it
felt like a lot of rambling rather than cutting right to the point of how this all
works--step-by-step and show performances.
I may only perform the horoscope as seen in the
trailer unless I can come up with something clever on my own using the time method.
This is a great app! Ben having allot of fun doing the effects on it.. I highly recommend this if
you are into phone magic!
After struggling with the instructions for two days I finally consulted by friend who knows how to
use it and NOW I get it. Better have a knowledgeable magician friend.
