A simple, powerful magic trick that anyone can learn, for iPhone and iPod Touch.

"Amazing!" — David Pogue, The New York Times

Featured by Apple. As seen in The Wall Street Journal, Wired, TechCrunch, Gizmodo, AppleInsider, iLounge, TUAW, and The New York Times.

How It Works:
Ask your friend to name any card in the deck. It can be *any* card. Then bring out your iPhone or iPod Touch and let them open the Rising Card app. It displays a photo of a deck of cards. Ask them to think about their card, and then shake the device. As they shake, the card they were thinking about *visibly rises* out of the deck.

The trick works perfectly *every* time - no matter which card your friend chooses! If you have *any* trouble or questions after purchase, contact our support crew at www.theory11.com/support for assistance. We are here to help you!

This app showcases a brilliant method pioneered by critically acclaimed magician Chris Kenner (executive producer for David Copperfield). It is *very* easy to use, and it will work no matter which card your friend names.

- Simple to learn
- Easy to perform
- Can be *any* card
- Your friends will FREAK out
