Wingman Card Magic uses the oldest trick in the book to allow the magician, you, to produce a card of your choice at any time - an accomplice. Wingman Card Magic and Wingman Card Accomplice are a pair of apps that you deploy on 2 Android devices that have been paired over Bluetooth. The illusionist asks the audience to call out, draw, sign, or otherwise indicate a card, and the accomplice simply chooses it surreptitiously in the accomplice app.
NEW FEATURES! Card flips are now animated! New cards added - black and red Jokers, and a special U MAD card to really confuse your audience.
Wingman got its name from the common practice of bringing a buddy to the table when trying to make new romantic connections to help make a great first impression. It is the buddy's job to make the performer look good. Wingman was actually tested in exactly those harsh environments and produced great results - interested strangers who wanted to spend more time with us!
- You must pair and connect the 2 devices in advance. Pairing lasts forever, but connection must be done every time the trick is launched.
- The pairing can be done in either direction. The best way is to choose "Make discoverable" from the option menu on one device, then on the other device choose "Connect a device". Scan for the other device and select it, follow and instructions on-screen and the devices will be paired.
- When ready to perform or rehearse the trick, from either device choose "Connect a device". The paired device will already be in the list. Select it, and the devices will be connected.
- Wingman Card Magic indicates that it is connected by adding a "!" after its name.
- Wingman Card Accomplice indicates that it is connected by updating its status bar with the connected device name.
Wingman Card Magic is a clean, simple magic app that works equally well for professional and aspiring illusionists as it does for amateurs looking for a great conversation-starter. Please send feedback on handling, mechanisms, feature requests, tweaks, etc. to [email protected]
