The last time magic duo Penn & Teller made software for a popular console, it didn’t go very well. The magic duo’s new app for iPhone should fare slightly better.
Luckily, Penn and Teller are available 24/7, and they’re often pretty witty when they make the big reveal of your victim’s card. Sometimes, they’re acerbic, and sometimes they seem bored. But they’re always right—if you do the trick well.
This isn’t Houdini-level magic, of course. You can (and should) take advantage of the app’s preferences to disguise things as much as possible, but don’t expect to fool David Copperfield. But if you have some gullible friends, this trick is easy to perform, and funny to boot.
