"A lot of apps come and go with trends. Maxim lives on my homescreen. It's genius."
- Christian Grace
MAXIM is a covert app that instantly calculates and discreetly delivers to you the perfect hands-off reveal for any freely named card in a deck that's been mixed by the spectators.
You hand the spectator a deck. (in any stack of your choice).
They "shuffle" the deck under the table or behind their back whilst freely naming any card. Let's say the name the "King of Diamonds".
They bring the deck out and immediately you know up to three different ways that they can reveal their own card. For example; They deal down to the exact date of the month and their card is exactly there!
All without any brain work, math, no nothing. Allowing you to be fully engaged in your performance.
Any random card at any arbitrary number is more impressive to magicians than laymen. But when the number has meaning, whether it's counting to their birthday, spelling the card's name or even counting to the exact date of the year, the boring old ACAAN takes on new life, feels more personal and more importantly more magical.
The beauty of maxim, unlike most other apps, is that your phone is used in a covert way, and to the spectator has nothing to do with the trick.
