Fool Your Friends With iMagic Trick


imagic trick iphoneThe main idea behind the app iMagic Trick is your friends pick a number from 0 to 60 and answer a couple of questions. After your friend is done with the questions iMagic Trick is supposed to "magically" discern the number that was being thought of by the user.

The app itself is very basic — it's essentially designed for doing the trick one way and that's it. There's not a lot of razzle-dazzle, but the graphics are sufficient for the application and the numbers are easy enough to read.

I know a magician never reveals his tricks, but here's the way iMagic Trick works.The pages each have a set of numbers. Then, according to when the user pushes yes or no, the app can pin-point the exact number that the user was thinking of. It is an impressive thing when you see it for the first time, but essentially it is a math formula that, if followed correctly, will always come up with the number. It's pretty easy to figure out once you know what's happening. So, it's only good one time for each person that you show.

Of course, if you do want to play the trick again, there's a downfall — there is no play again button when the iMagic Trick finally does tell you your number. So, in order to try it again, you have to close the app and then load it up again. Granted it's only a small inconvenience, but an inconvenience nonetheless.

iMagic Trick is a good way to stump your friends, but this will surely be one of those apps that sits on your phone and doesn't get much use.
