There's one surefire way to wow your friends and that's with magic, so here's an app that can help you do just that. The Marty's Magic Coin app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives you the ability to rub a coin right into your device's screen and then get it back again. This is an illusion of course but one that is fun and entertaining for all. There are a few features and tools built into this offering to keep it interesting for you and your audience.
Here's a magic trick that anyone can do thanks to the Marty's Magic Coin app. The app is able to take you through five tricks, each of which is explained through a step-by-step video. There are also three additional magic tricks that don't involve a mobile device that you can watch the videos on. All of the tricks have been designed to be easy to follow and understand so even if you've never tried a magic trick before you'll have no problem with these. The videos give you a chance to learn and practice so that by the time you try the trick on someone it will be amazing.
The app hasn't been updated in quite some time, over three years now, with its last update adding all kinds of features. At this point it could do with some refreshing, new content, and even some adjustments to the user interface would be welcome. The app has four out of five stars from users who enjoy how simple the tricks are especially the disappearing coin trick.
Using the Tricks
Taking a closer look at the Marty's Magic Coin app you'll begin with the basic trick and ask your friend for a quarter. Next you will seem to rub the quarter right into the screen of your device and then it shows up inside the phone. You can even tilt your device from side to side and watch the coin roll around. When you're ready you can shake your device and allow the coin to fall out or you can "pull" it out of the screen.
Some of the additional features include text instructions to help you perform your tricks, choose what desktop background you want, and there are 32 different types of coins that you can perform your magic trick with.
