City Prediction for iPhone by Soma
Thousands of copies downloaded. City Prediction is the MUST-HAVE app of 2015.
A world-class prediction effect that you carry on you at all times.
The issue with most Apps is that the magic happens on the magicians’ phone.
City prediction allows you to borrow a spectators iPhone or iPad, casually set a prediction on Apple Maps, and then create miracles.
Here's how it works… You borrow a phone from your audience member, and set a prediction on their phone with Apple maps.... it's placed face-down in their hand.
From this moment on, you NEVER touch their phone again.They freely name ANY city, street address or anything you can search for on a map in the world. No pre-show work, force or stooge. It can literally be any city, no matter how obscure it is… Without any voice recognition or sleight of hand, the spectator turns over their phone to find a pin placed in the exact city they named.
The app store download includes a video guide, and set of notes to take you from 'good magician' to miracle-maker. So easy.
*Please Note: You will need to own an iPhone or iPad to perform City Prediction*

This took about ten minutes to understand. It works. Its a great everyday item type of trick. You will need to get creative with one aspect of how this works, but it was not a problem for me. Having a helper do the dirty work makes it flawless. Instantly repeatable.
Before I bought City Prediction I was very on the fence about doing magic with technology, it just didnt feel right to me. But this is one of my favourite tricks EVER. Everyone has an iphone nowadays and its the perfect effect for when I forget my cards. I always perform it twice for the same person. The first time I voice their thought of place really loudly and obviously, they always think it has something to do with voice recognition. I then perform the trick a second time in total silence and people freak out.
I went to work with this Friday night and blew away 6 or 7 sets with it. Then after the gig I met with some friends - one girl was so hell-bent on beating me we tried it SEVEN times in a row. She ended up throwing her phone!
After carrying my phone for every performance just to use the Card2Phone app, I was hoping something else worthwhile would come out to justify the pocket space an iPhone takes up- this does exactly what any magician could hope for
