“A revolutionary magic utility for the modern world!” Michael Carbonaro

If you could create a truly impossible and mind-blowing experience for ANY audience by simply putting your trust in a stranger...would you do it?

The Stranger from Jonathan Levit is so much more than a magic trick. Its a revolutionary magic app that enables you to carry a miracle in your pocket wherever you go.

Imagine calling a random phone number that was FAIRLY created by your audience and reaching a random stranger that impossibly knows what playing card your spectator selected, a word they thought of, or even the name of a loved one? With The Stranger, you can easily create these mind-boggling and unexplainable moments of pure magic anywhere you go.

From card tricks to book tests and other mentalism effects, The Stranger offers truly unlimited possibilities.

With your purchase, you'll receive an INSTANT DOWNLOAD CODE that gives you immediate access to The Stranger on iOS or Android. (No need to choose at checkout, the code will automatically work for either operating system).

This base app allows you to have a stranger reveal a playing card. You can perform this card trick anywhere, anytime. There is a large group of active strangers around the world ready to help at anytime. (You can also play the role of a stranger for others, which is just as fun!)

Other features and effects can also be unlocked within the app. For example, the texting add-on that allows you to have any card freely selected without any forces (the base app currently requires a card force). You can also secretly share words and numbers with your stranger, integrate NFC tags, or even have the stranger secretly listen in your conversation with the audience. Jonathan has also worked diligently to create powerful integrations with other popular magic apps like WikiTest, Cubesmith and iThump/Toxic+.

The Stranger is super easy to use. Careful consideration has been put into the routining to ensure you'll be confident about performing with it shortly after learning the secret. There are also a variety of different functions that allow you to practice whenever you'd like.

With so many performance possibilities, you can get anywhere from 1 to 10+ minutes of incredibly solid material to suit any audience. From close-up magicians to parlor and stage magicians, and even emcees, everyone can benefit from The Stranger!

Why The Stranger?

Any Situation or Audience
The Stranger can be performed for audiences of any size from strolling and close-up gigs to large stage magic shows. No matter how many people you perform it for, this will undoubtedly get one of the biggest reactions in your whole show.

A Truly Random Phone Number
The dialed number is truly constructed at random. No forces needed. The spectator can even press the numbers and place the call themselves.

Built-in Convincers
Every aspect of this app has been thought out to make it as convincing as possible. You'll even learn how to make secret "mistakes" such as reaching a disconnected number or voicemail before finally connecting to your stranger.

Hidden Technology
Unlike many phone magic tricks, The Stranger takes all emphasis away from the phone itself. It feels incredibly organic. The only reason your phone even comes into play is to make the call.

No Pre-Show
Watch the full performance above. Your performance will work exactly the same. There is nothing to prepare. A card is selected or named, a random phone number is dialed and the stranger on the other end reveals the information. (An in-app purchase is required for freely selected card, word or number features.)

No Coding or Forces
Everything is handled before the call is made. You won't need to do any verbal "Phone-a-Wizard"-style coding once connected to your stranger. In fact, your participant can take the lead on the entire conversation.

Place a Real Phone Call with No Cell Reception
The Stranger uses Wi-Fi calling so you can place a real call to anyone on iPhone with no cell reception (even if you're in airplane mode). You can even FaceTime the stranger!

        Post an answer to this question
      • Saul asks: My understanding is that if you want to do the routine with words, numbers, etc. you need to subscribe to a service for $3.99 per month. Is that correct? Also, if that is correct can you cancel this service when you’re not going to use it and reinstate it at a later time?

        • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes and yes! There is a subscription service for additional features that can be canceled if you do not use them.
      • Saul asks: I recently purchased The Stranger and like it a lot. If I also purchase the texting option for $3.99 per month does that include the ability to send words and numbers to a Stranger as well as the playing card? I did not see the ‘Custom’ option under ‘Revelations’ that was in the Instructions Video.

        • 1. Jim answers: Short answer: Yes. A longer answer, from the creator: There is only one subscription. It’s not required to run the app. But, it’s recommended. For $3.99 USD a month, they can unlock the texting feature. The first month is free and then it recurs after that unless they cancel within the first month. This feature sends a text message to the live stranger with the information: playing card, number, word, cube solve, etc.

      • Madiyar asks: Hello your latest update is terrible. When you call voicemail, the call buttons are very large. And when you call a real person, the call buttons are very small. All the viewers will notice it. Please fix it !

        • 1. Jim answers: You may want to contact the app's support on this.
        Post an answer to this question
      • Mark asks: Please tell me how this works. Just kidding. What happens if someone in the audience notes the phone number that was randomly generated, and calls it later? Or does a reverse look-up for that number? (And yes I realize this is not a major concern.)

        • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Johnathan talks about this on the instructions and there is large Facebook group where people assist with that question.
