New magic app: Forced

Postby VMids » June 12th, 2013, 12:24 pm

Hello everybody!
today Apple approved my app 'Forced'. I think it's the first app of it's kind, with a completely new priniciple that's not seen before. Here's the official description:

Do you want to force any number, letter or other variable on your friends/spectators?
Meet Forced! Forced is a breakthrough magic app, that uses a new, never used before principle to force ANYTHING on ANYBODY.
Buy Forced today, and fool anybody you want!

I'm very curious what you think about it, and please don't hesitate asking me questions!
Kind regards,
Victor Mids

Victor,

Good luck with your app, but very honestly, I have no clue what you are selling. I know it's only three bucks, but I think you might do better with a clearer description.

Hi Steve,
thank you for your reply! I understand your reply...I'm sorry :) Here's a description of a possible effect:

You hand your phone to a spectator saying that in your note's app, you inserted 100 random words (cat, house etc.), but these could also be names, numbers, you name it. They can scroll through the words and see there are genuinely 100 words and they are all different. Than you ask them, while you turn away, to scroll through the words and pick one word they see. They NEVER have to write anything down, save it on your phone etc. In fact, you never have to touch your phone again. You can then reveal the word they picked in your favourite way. Even better, they will pick the word you want them to (hence the name of the app) :).
Hope you like it and please don't hesitate asking further questions!
Regards,
Victor Mids

Still confused.

So you have spoofed the notes app, the magi then has to put in a list of 100 things, and your app manages to force one of those items from a list that the spec can scroll through?

Sounds odd.

Hi Mr. Goat,
that's more or less what the app is about. Although it never seems odd to the spectator when you say that you entered 100 names of word, friends, or 100 telephone numbers in your notes app, where they can pick one out (the one you can force them).
Regards,
Victor

Seems VERY odd to me to enter 100 phone numbers in your notes app when you have a contacts app with that data in.

And also very odd to type a list of 100 items into it.

But, I hope it works for you. It's far too weird a thing to have done to interest me.

It seems totally upside down to me to make a supposedly secret choice using... a communication device.

Thanks for the reply's Mr Goat and Ted M. It's absolutely a matter of choice whether you find the use of a 'communication device' for mind reading tricks a strong one. When you're doing the same trick with for instance forcing a card (with a word on it) on a spectator, he/she might suspect sleight of hand. And besides, having always a 'trick on you' (because it's on your phone) also has some great advantages. But offcourse, that's my point of view, otherwise I would have never developed this app.
All the best!

I came out with a trick with a friend of mine over 8 years ago with the EXACT SAME name.

Hi Magic Apple,
I'm very sorry, I wasn't aware of this! I did my research with multiple searches but couldn't find a trick with this name. I hope the buyer can see that the two products both offer something different.
Kind regards,
Victor
