Q?What is 21st Century Prediction?

Simply put, 21st Century Prediction is an iPhone app that appears to allow you to predict a word, a number, a drawing, or anything else you can dream up.

Q?How does it actually work?

The answer to that is contained in a 30 minute video you will receive once you purchase the app itself. The method is very clever and will work for you whether or not you use a confederate.

Q?Do I need to use a confederate or can I do this by myself?

You can absolutely perform this without any assistance. All of us here at Keyl Magic (read: Steve) have used it that way a lot and it works great. However, the greatest asset of the app is the ability to use a confederate to make things even more hands off and impossible to backtrack to figure out the workings.

What’s more is that the confederate app is FREE! This means that every party you attend, every work function and every back yard barbecue provides an opportunity for you to bring someone else in on the proceedings and have them assist you in a way that will absolutely confound your audience. There is no limit to the number of confederates you can have. And of course, you can always immediately go into the effect without any assistance whatsoever.

Q?Why does the app cost $30?!?

It actually only costs $29. The old psychological chestnut of reducing the price by $1 make it seem more palatable to purchase is a theory I’m testing out.

Back to the question. This is a niche app in a niche market. Given that this app was created for serious magicians and mentalists, and given that this can be a working tool for close-up and impromptu performances, the price tag seems just about right. The development cost on something like this is quite high and to be honest, I doubt I’ll even recoup my costs on the app itself. In the end, I made this app because it’s something that I wanted to have and use, and making it publicly available will help defray the exorbitant cost of development.

If you can’t see your way clear to purchasing the app, I completely understand. Best of luck and hopefully I can hook you on the next one!

Q?Is this app available on Android phones?

At present, no it is not. We are currently developing an Android version that will be cross-compatible with the iPhone version. Meaning that you could have the Android app running while using an iPhone-based confederate and vice-versa. This will mean that nearly anyone with a phone will be eligible to become a confederate.

There is currently no release date for the Android version. Given the number of different platforms and sizes of Android devices, we have a lot of technical hurdles to overcome before this is a reality.

Q?I’m not a magician (or a mentalist). What the hell are you talking about?

Q?Does anyone actually read all the way down to the end of these FAQs?

I’m kind of curious about the answer to this one too. My guess is no.
