  Sorry you didn't realise that the Pro Pack is just the accessories to use with the App. It does say so on the back of the box and it should be made clear where ever you boaught it from.
Hopefully when you get the app and have a play with it, it will all make sense and you have a lot of fun. If you are really unhappy please contact and I'll see what I can do to help.

  Hi, i have just paid about 14 and received some plastic spiders and cockroaches. Utterly useless since there is no iphone app! This was not made clear in the demo or advertising.
Hacked off.

  Hi Ryan,
Unfortunately the AppStore or Google Play do not allow developers to supply codes or vouchers to download the app.

This would be the preferred method but it would mean that they (Google/Apple) would not get their 30% commission on the sale. Developers could list the app for free but only accessible by a code then they (apple/Google) would not get any commission. So this unfortunately is not an option.

  You can get a variety of different startup screens on our Facebook page in the photos section.

Save the screen to your gallery then "SET" in Magic Spider settings.

  I love this effect just bought it. Only question is where can I get the disguised opening screen like in the demo video. When the app is introduced it doesn't show a spider

  I met Ian at PCAM yesterday, purchased the pro pack, downloaded the app at dinner and watched the instructional video. Within 15 minutes I was ready to try it out. The first two reactions were over the top and worthy of being on a promo reel. This is not a piece that will be part of my structured set but it is impromptu gold. I always have my phone and it is easy to carry a plastic spider. GREAT JOB Ian this is a lot of fun

  I'm about to purchase the app and props, so I can't comment on them yet. However, one thing I would have liked to see is rather than having to purchase the app and props separately, have the ability to pay together. For example, when the prop pack is sent out, have it sent with a unique one time use code (call-home verification) with a free download app (use a QR Code to the market) which requires the entry of a correct code (once again, server verification) in order to "unlock". Just my two cents.
Seems like a fantastic product from the demo videos, can't wait to receive and try out mine!

  Hi Wayno,
The Advanced settings allows you to set any of the pauses to "99" so then the animation will pause for 99 seconds or until you double tap. Try "99,99,2,3,30" for the spider pauses and "99,3,30" for the cockroach.

  Hi Jonathan,
The pro-pack from our store comes with a pocket sized polypropylene box that is perfect for carrying the gimmicks with you. I have used the backing paper or plastic that comes with the dots. One of the sides the dots don't stick to. Tape this to the back of your phone and then stick the spider to that. If you want to keep the spider of the phone, then keep in the box, but reverse the backing paper so it is quick and easy to get off.

  I love the app and I have the spider and the dots. I really need a way to keep it with me because I never know when the opportunity will present itself.

Any ideas on how to do that? The dots are so sticky that it takes a concentrated effort to remove the backing. I tried using the waxy backing paper to stamps and it's also hard to remove from that.

I need a way to keep it in my pocket and have it ready to go all the time even though it may be days before I get to use it. Obviously I can't keep it on the back of my phone all the time since I use my phone a lot.

  Great app. Looking forward to the pro pack being delivered. I have one request; please add an option to cycle through animation or pauses by tapping the screen. This way the spectator can tap screen to interact and make Boris move too.

  Hi John,
The Magic Spider app requires Android V2.2 or higher and is designed for phone sized devices. Other than your device being listed in Google's database as having a maximum Android version less than Android V2.2, I'm not sure why it wouldn't let you.

  I'm surprised that google tells me your app is incompatable with my Dell Streak 5 (Android 2.2.2) and accordingly won't let me download it?

  @Peter: Cockroach animation should be smoother now. Also added the ability to vary the pause times in the animation.
@Chris: Yes Belinda is being developed now. Filming is complete. It will probably be a new app though. Butterlfies will probably come in a pack of 50 so you can give them away.

  Hi Peter,
Thanks for your order. Yes the cochroach is a bit slower on some android devices. I have managed to speed up the animation of the spider by cutting down the graphic to the minimum size, but the cockroach is full screen at the moment because of it's antenna, so it depends on the phone's graphics capability to draw quick enough. The iPhone version does not have this problem but some androids do. I will see if I can reduce the size of the graphic to speed it up for you. It may take some time. Cheers Ian.

  hey, great app! Jim Pace's trick is great, but with this app it changes to a even more worthy experience. Also bought the Pro-pack, since my spider is really old and also would like to check the cockroach. Just to mention, the spider moves better than the cockroach on the app on my Galaxy S2, don't know why. The cockroach is moving a bit on frames and not that smooth. could you check if the animation could be more smooth

  Thanks Paul, I appreciate that. A lot of people say that The Web was mean magic. I thought so too, but for some reason the way the App is perceived in a different way. I always do the effect for more a group. Preferably three girls. This creates a interesting dynamic where the two others offer a level of emotional safety to the person you are perfoming to. When the final reveal happens, there is of course that moment of fear, but it is quickly turned into a good energy when the realisation of the scam takes hold. The combination of the friends laughing converts the adrenaline very quickly. I have not found another effect that promotes so much interaction after the effect is done. I hope you all enjoy using it as much I we are here in Australia.

  My Pet Boris is amazing! If anyone is reading this, and you haven't already bought it, JUST DO IT! It is well worth it. Priceless! Or if you think you can't get away with the load, YOU'RE WRONG! Nobody feels it, and ANYONE CAN DO THIS! It's awesome!

  Hi Craig,
Thanks for your note. There seems to be a bug in teh Android version 2.3.3 - 2.3.6 where the camera image is black. I have a fix coming in the next day or so that should address the problem. The settings screen will have a checkbox "<4.0.1 Capture" make sure this is checked. Also try with or without the flash. Camera works fine after 4.01 update.

  It's a really good idea. Works great on my Samsung Galaxy S2. I'm impressed at how real the spider looks and that you can take a picture of the spectator's hand. The flash option is a really good addition for people who work in dark places.

  My Pet Boris looks just great. I REALLY like your presentation talking about video games and augmented reality with the picture of the spectators hand, poking it, etc.. This is EXACTLY what iPhone magic should be a combination of technology and reality. This is really good. I look forward to it's release. Let me know when it's available. Thanks for sharing this!

I used to LOVE doing Jim Pace's "The Web" until I started realizing that my cards were eventually being destroyed or lost. I must've bought that trick 3 times. With "My Pet Boris", you have made this trick 100x's BETTER!!! I love the fact that you've introduced him as AR and it becomes (IMO) more interactive and realistic. Great job and I look forward to buying this one!!! GREAT job!
