Everett, Washington – Magic Card, currently the best selling magic trick on the App Store, is dropping in price to only $1.99 (reg. $4.99) in a gambit meant to claim the top position in the highly competitive Entertainment category. The clever iPhone illusion has always been popular with professional magicians, but the recent feature in Apple’s “New & Noteworthy” on iTunes has triggered a 100-fold sales spike. Moving quickly to cement its position as the top trick on the store, iPod support has also been added with a free update that shipped today, adding an entirely new effect.
Everett, Washington – Most iPhone magic apps use unsatisfying virtual playing cards, but Renditions Design’s “Magic Card” uses a real deck of cards and the iPhone’s camera to create the convincing illusion that Apple’s amazing device came with the power to see through cards. Although popular with professional magicians, the clever secret is actually easy enough for anyone to do on their first try. This week Magic Card was completely re-written to incorporate the latest iPhone OS improvements, and the price was lowered to $2.99 for a short time.
