NEWLY UPDATED! A seemingly impossible prediction using your iPhone Camera!

From the creators of Email Wizard (an amazing app acquired by the legendary David Copperfield).

Demo video available at

Ghost Card allows you to take a photo of any card held by the spectator (at any angle, in almost any lighting conditions) and later change the value of the card in that photo to any other card.

The effect: The magician says that he will show the spectator a card trick, but first he wants to take a photo. He hands the deck to the spectator and asks her to pick any card (100% free choice), face down, and not to look at it. The magician holds the card (with its back facing the spectator), and takes a photo of the card with the spectator in the background. The card goes back in the deck and the magician performs a card routine of his choice during which he asks the spectator to select another card, but this time face up (100% free choice). At the end of the routine, the magician reminds the spectator about the photo he took, emphasizing that it was a free choice and taken before the magician did anything else. He picks up his phone, opens his photo album, points at the thumbnail of the last photo he took, and taps on it. The full-sized image shows a photo of the magician holding the chosen card with the spectator in the background, proving his correct prediction!

Reverse mind-reading: The magician selects a card (any card) and, without showing it to the spectator, he takes a photo of the card with the spectator in the background. The magician asks the spectator to concentrate and speak aloud the card that pops into her head. The spectator names a card, and the magician picks up his phone a shows the photo that he just took. The image will be of the card the spectator named.

The spectator has free choice of any card, and the magician's prediction will be correct every time!

Ghost Card is a "stealth" app -- the spectator will never suspect that an app was involved. The credit goes to the magician, not the iPhone. The app can be used as a self-contained mind-reading effect, however mixing it into your current card routines is recommended. At some point you need to make a single tap on the screen before revealing the photo, however this can be done as you pick the phone back up off the table.

Confederate Mode: If you have a friend who has a copy of the app, you can perform the effect without EVER touching your phone again. You take the photo, hand your phone to the spectator, and she can be the one to reveal the photo! Your friend makes the secret entry on his phone which is transmited it to yours.

• Use any card from a standard deck (designed to match a Bicycle-brand ace).
• You can choose to end clean (you'll be viewing the photo in the real photo library, not the app).
• The spectator can hold the card.
• Includes instructional videos and full routine examples.

Ghost Card is the original "any card to any card" photo prediction app. Other apps require the card to be on a table, held at a certain angle, held unnaturally with no fingers covering any part of the card, or that require you to reveal a photo you took much earler. With Ghost Card, you take the prediction photo in view of the spectator, with the spectator in the actual photo (even holding the card), making the prediction much more personal for the spectator.


• Cannot be performed if you are surrounded for the entire performance. However the only non-spectator-safe time is when you're taking the prediction photo, and so it's natural that you don't want anyone to see what you're photographing.
• Since this app uses the iPhone camera, some lighting conditions will work better than others, so the app is not suited for every situation. Practice is needed to learn the app's limitations.

For entertainment purposes only. Does not provide real mind-reading abilities.

Takes a while to focus on a card. It would be cool if it could locate a card when fanned out and just label the top left part of the card.

Developer Response ,

A new version of the app has recently been released and speeds up the performance.

It’s really good but I need some help

This new updated app is much better except 1. How do you remove the yellow bars (at the bottom of the screen there is a yellow bar that tells you hints and secrets and I don’t know how to get rid of this) 2. How do you remove the settings at the top of the fake camera.

Developer Response ,

A new version of the app was recently released which greatly improves the functionality and features. Please check it out and let me know your concerns, thanks!

Edit: to answer your question, both of those are part of “training mode”. Go into the settings, then Advanced settings, the turn off training mode.
