Dracula Ebook Test: for iPhones by Alan Rorrison

"The easiest and most portable book test to date!" - Erik Jansson
The iPhone has loads of apps designed to do magic in the app store but there is one problem. None of them really are organic. As soon as you performed one of these effects with the phone everyone screams: "Its an app! Very clever but its an app". So here is one of the most organic apps on the market.

You show the spectator an ebook on your phone and run through how it works (scrolling etc,) for them... You let them see that every single page is different before you have a page randomly selected. You hold the phone face down so no one can see and invite them to scroll though the pages as much as they would like. When they stop you hold the phone screen up to them and ask them to remember the first line on the page. They do so and then they close the app down or scroll past the page themselfs.

You have never seen where they have stopped and they can stop where ever they choose. With this all in mind you can still devine down to the exact letter where they stopped. A true mind reading miracle in your pocket. Ready to go at all times.

  • This is the full book and can be freely inspected
  • Hit the right word or sentance 100% of the time
  • Super easy to do
  • No large books to carry. It is all on your phone
  • Looks and acts like a normal ebook
  • WORKS OFFLINE! No net connection needed except for installation.
  • Now 100% compatable with ITOUCH

This plays particularly well in an intimate setting with one to a couple of spectators. Imagine you are standing on a platform with a couple of friends waiting for the train. Everybody is checking his phone. The perfect opportunity to knock them dead - or after dinner in a restaurant, or after a meeting at work.

"This, like all of Alan's work, is magic that could make you pregnant. This is a piece of mentalism to really sink your teeth into. HA! Did you see what I did there?! But really, Alan has brought a classic of mentalism to the iPhone. The method is cunning, the effect bold, and I think mentalists will be greatly looking forward to this truly 'anytime, anywhere' piece." - Liam Montier Pro Maigician

"The Dracula Book Test for iPhone is exactly what iPhone is about. Evolving classic illusions so that they are easy, direct and still job smacking. Alan’s got a true iPhone miracle that I’ll be using all the time!" - Jamie Daws Pro Magican

"Finally a 'magic app' that doesn't look like a magic app! Alan has applied everyday technology with an incredible method, making this an excellent, impromptu feeling miracle." - Jeff Prace Pro Magician

Very nice idea for a magic app; a nice change of pace from all the card trick apps. And timely too, with vampires being all the rage!

Actually is not bad but it would be better to enhance the effect by having a few different sets of page.

I purchased and loaded this on my iPhone, it is exactly as stated in the description. While it works flawlessly, I would prefer to see some modifications to make this a truly useful performance piece.

1) It always forces the same page. It would be nice to have 3 different pages that could be forced, with the selection either in a settings screen or depending where on the screen you touch to enter the book. You could then repeat this immediately, which is often asked for in small settings.

2) The force brings you to the start of a new chapter. How much better it would be if it took you to a pure page of text, with the top line half cut-off as if the screen was scrolling randomly.

For $4.50 I can't complain, but with these modifications it would be a much better effect.

I purchased the Dracual Ebook Test from Lybrary.com today. I received an e-mail advertising new stuff in the store and this was one of the items. I have seen it on Alan's site before but have hesistated because I tend not to trust iPhone apps that don't come from the actual App Store. After reading the promotional material a few times I decided to get it. For $4.50 you will have a great book test ready to go.

First, the description:

You show the spectator an ebook on your phone and run through how it works (scrolling etc,) for them... You let them see that every single page is different before you have a page randomly selected. You hold the phone face down so no one can see and invite them to scroll though the pages as much as they would like. When they stop you hold the phone screen up to them and ask them to remember the first line on the page. They do so and then they close the app down or scroll past the page themselfs.

You have never seen where they have stopped and they can stop where ever they choose. With this all in mind you can still devine down to the exact letter where they stopped. A true mind reading miracle in your pocket. Ready to go at all times.

Accurcacy: 100% The effect performs exactly as it reads.

Difficulty: Beginner You can perform this within 5 minutes of opening it. I did and got a great reaction.

Repeatability: 0% Once you have shown this to somebody you will not want to repeat it for them again. This isn't like an ambitious routine where you can floor the same audience over and over with it.

Venue: Anywhere This can be done from the stage and it can be done one on one in a intimate setting. Your choice.

Where will you most likely use this: In an intimate setting. Although this will play from the stage you will find yourself performing this when somebody says "Show me something." If you have an iPhone you have a book test with you. Hear somebody discussing an upcoming event? Did they mention they need to find entertainment? You have a quick and effective routine reday to go.

My impression: Positive This is worth the money and you will be satisfied with your purchase. I like that Alan hasn't abandoned it after releasing it. He has provided an update for it and the current version for sale has the update applied. I really like that this doesn't look like an iPhone magic trick.

Hopes: More updates. I hope that in future updates Alan gives us the ability to perform for the same audience again. I don't recommend back to back repeats but if you see similar faces in the crowd at a later date it would be nice to change it up some.

Future thought: This will play well on the new iPad when it comes out.
