    iMagic Trick Three words to describe this iPhone magic tricks app - clever, strange and amazing. Based on simple mathematics, this app does one simple trick well - to display the secret number selected by a person from 0 to 60. The person will take note of which of the six screens their number is displayed on and then tell the "magician" which screen the number appears on, answering only yes or no. Then after the last screen, the secret number will be revealed to the person and to other spectators. Strange? Not really - but amazing nonetheless. (Price: $0.99) (Download link)

    iCoinPredict Coin Magic Trick

    iCoinPredict Ok, how about an iPhone magic tricks app for coins? iCoinPredict, as the name suggests, lets you predict coins that people will think of. Before you try the coin magic trick in front of a group of people, show them the iPhone magic tricks app first. You can tap on four coins displayed by the app to make them disappear or roll the coins around the iPhone screen. After this, you can proceed and ask the people to give you real coins. Put the coins on a table and ask any of the spectators to make a clear mental image of any of the coins. Then quickly remove three of the coins on the iPhone screen and place your iPhone away from you. Then ask the spectator to remove the coins that they weren't thinking of and leave just the coin they thought of. Then show your iPhone and let your spectators be awed when they see that the coin left on the table is the same coin displayed on your iPhone. Amazing, right? (Price: $2.99) (Download link)
