the perfect routine for any situation

It’s not just an app…

it’s a community.

There is no “one way” to perform the Stranger.

Revelations

Using revelation options, your Stranger can reveal a playing card, a word from a booktest, objects pulled from a purse, a drawing written on a piece of paper, any selected time on a wrist watch and so much more. It’s all up to you and your creativity!

The Stranger is the only app that can make all of these effects possible!

Playing Card

Any playing card is selected or named. A random phone number is called. The Stranger on the other end of the line names the specatator’s card! 

Listen

The Stranger is listening. For anything. Words. Numbers. Serial numbers on a bill. Multiple selections.  You decide what should be heard and then this information is sent to your Stranger for the ultimate reveal!

Inject

Integration with Inject opens up immense possibilities!
(iOS only)

Dicesmith

Using Dicesmith from Benke Smith, dice can be rolled and hidden from view, yet your Stranger will know the values on each die!

Rainman

Rainman from Moustapha Berjaoui is a brilliant creation that gives you superhuman abilities. Now, you can pass on those abilities to your Stranger!
(iOS only)

Booktest

Send any thought of word from your own Booktest to your live Stranger. But, it doesn’t stop there. You can send ANY word to your Stranger—a country name, a common name, a birthday, an object in someone’s purse…anything you can imagine!

Number

Send any number to your live Stranger. How much change is in your pocket? What number is showing on the rolled die? If you use a memorized deck, you can have your spectator choose a card, then you can send the number of the card location to your spectator…this elevates “card at any number” to a whole new level! 

Wikitest

Perform WikiTest and the search word will be sent directly to your live Stranger. This creates a reveal that seems completely impossible!

Cubesmith

Our collaboration with CubeSmith allows a Rubik’s cube to be mixed and then a stranger is called. When asked if they have a Rubik’s cube, they look for it in their home, find it, and then the cubes are revealed to be an exact match!

Elips

Using Elips from Maxime Helier, your Stranger can reveal a thought of artist, song and word from the lyrics. Imagine calling your Stranger and the thought of song is playing in the background!

Nail Writer

With the nailwriter module, you can send literally any information to your live Stranger! If it can be typed on a keyboard, it can be sent to your Stranger. The serial number on a dollar bill, the name of someone in your audience, anything. This value can be entered prior to your performance, or you can enter it on the fly!

NFC

With the NFC module, The Stranger can write to an NFC tag and read NFC tags. Send the reveal (playing card, envelope, book, anything you can imagine) to your Live Stranger seamlessly!

iThump

Using iThump from Ian Pidgeon, a myriad of possibilities are available to reveal numbers on a calculator, zodiac symbols or anything else iThump allows.

Timesmith

Using Timesmith from Benke Smith, a time can be named and the Stranger can reveal the time!

Mindbuster

Labco makes the best prediction pads on the market. With this integration, a spectator can write anything on a pad and the Stranger will know exactly what was written or drawn.

(Some features or plans may not be available for Android.)

Stranger Lite is intended to allow anyone to use The Stranger.

  • Use the Stranger with the built in conversation recordings to reveal a randomly selected playing card.
  • Upload your own custom conversation recording to reveal a playing card, a zodiac sign, or anything else. 
  • Add one or two convincer calls to make the performance even more impossible!

Plus…

What’s Included:

Conversation Recordings

Any playing card is selected or named. A random phone number is called. You interact with a pre-recorded conversation where the person in the recording will reveal the playing card. These recordings sound like real conversations!

International Support

The Stranger is global! With support for nearly 50 regions, there is truly an international community of Strangers. When you set the app to your region, the phone number format, ringer tones, disconnected recordings (see “convincers”) and the language for your phone screens will all be correct…automatically.

Upload One Conversation Recording

In most languages, the Stranger app comes pre-loaded with conversation recordings. You also have the ability to upload your own conversation recording to reveal a playing card, zodiac symbol, or anything else you want. It’s all up to your own imagination!

Convincers

Before you place the call to your Live Stranger (Live or Pro) or to the pre-recorded conversation for the reveal, you will first call a convincer. This could be a voicemail, or a number disconnected recording. These convincers dispel any thought that the routine has been pre-arranged.

Auto Detect:

To streamline your performance and enhance it’s believability, the Stranger app offers “auto-detect” for your phone number format, ringer tones, and disconnected number recording (convincer). Set your region in your settings and all of these will change automatically. If you enter a different country for a phone number, auto-detect will change all of these on the fly!

Fast Switching

During a performance, you need to be able to make choices and changes quickly without too many clicks. Fast-Switching makes this possible. Without leaving your Home Screen, you can make quick changes to your selected conversation recordings, convincers and live Strangers. The audience will never see you fumble while trying to make a change right in front of them!

User Portal

You are in control. With your user portal, you can make changes to your profile, store or update your personal links for other apps you use that integrate with the Stranger (Wikitest, iThump, Cubesmith, etc.) and you upload your custom conversation recordings. 

Recent Calls

Automatically generate a recent calls list, or create your own custom list, that contains the last number you called during your Stranger performance. This allows you to call back the Stranger!

Peek

You’ll always feel secure with the peek features in the Stranger app. Before you place that first phone call, you’ll know exactly what information has been sent to your Stranger and what information you’ve entered for the reveal in your conversation recordings. And with perfectly placed secret buttons, you can always go back to make a change. The Stranger app has you covered.

Ringtones

When you place a phone call, the ringer tones before the Stranger picks up the phone (Live or pre-recorded) are different for each region. The Stranger app plays the correct ringer tones for you automatically. And you can change the number of tones for each type of call. So, for a voicemail convincer, you may choose 4 tones to add to the believability of the call.

Practice

The Stranger app is one of the easiest effects to perform. And, with practice mode built directly into the app, you’ll feel totally comfortable the first time you present this in front of an audience.

Bluetooth

Performing in a loud space, or on a stage? With built in bluetooth capabilities, you can connect your phone to a bluetooth speaker and be heard by everyone.

Stranger Live extends the capabilities of the Stranger, allowing you to make a live call.

  • All the features of Stranger Lite

  • Video call with iPhone and Android or both! 
  • Add additional revelation modules. (word in a booktest, a number, a birthday, zodiac sign, or anything else.)
  • Call anyone from your contacts on your phone, or engage with a member of the global Stranger community!
  • Add the texting feature to create a truly hands-off and effortless effect where your Stranger knows what to reveal before you even place the call.

Plus…

What’s Included:

Text Your Stranger

The texting feature will send a text message to your Stranger automatically with all the revelation information: the playing card, word in a booktest, the Rubik’s cube algorithm, number, birthday, and anything else. Your Stranger will know everything before they even receive your call. It’s seamless! 

This feature is available as a subscription or one time purchase in Live, and is included in Pro.

Video Calling

Video calling with a live Stranger blows the believability through the roof! The Stranger app allows video calling to occur with your live Stranger between Android and Android devices, iPhone and iPhone as well as iPhone and Android.

Custom Convincers

Record your own convincers directly in the app! Record someone hanging up the call, or unable to hear you. Anything you can think of can be recorded and used during your performance. 

Zodiac

When you send the birthday to your Stranger, the app will automatically send the zodiac symbol as well. 

(Texting feature required)

Auto Advance

The features in the Stranger app are often born from real life performance situations. Auto advance is one of those features. What happens if your live Stranger doesn’t answer the call? Maybe their phone died, or they went out of cell service range. During performance, with Auto advance engaged, you can just dial another random number and the next Stranger in your list will be called automatically. 

Send Alert Text

With the press of one button right from the app start screen, you can easily alert your Stranger to let them know your show is beginning. 

(Texting feature required)

Wifi Calling

With the wifi feature enabled, you can call your Stranger, anywhere in the world, without incurring cell service fees. 

Fake Homescreen

With the fake home screen enabled, you can allow your spectator to press the phone app button and you’ll be secretly taken to the Stranger app phone screen. It’s the perfect ruse!

Apple Watch

Using your Apple Watch, you can input revelation information (playing card, number, word). You can even use your Apple Watch to activate the listen mode and listen for key phrases or serial numbers without ever taking your phone out of your pocket!

Send Fake Number

With this feature activated, a second text message will be sent to your Stranger with the phone number called. This gives them more information to convince your audience the call is real. 

(Texting feature required)

Stranger Pro makes it all possible. With Stranger Pro, you get everything you need to create truly impossible routines.

  • All the features of Stranger Lite and Stranger Live

  • Stranger Pro includes unlimited access to the texting feature with no additional fees.
  • Perform the Stranger using a borrowed phone! 
  • Includes all of the available revelation modules and integrations so you will never be limited in what is possible.

Plus…

What’s Included:

Texting Included

The texting feature is included with your Pro subscription. Your Stranger will have all the information they need, no matter the reveal, before you even make the call!

City Lookup (U.S.A. Only)

When the “Send Fake Number” feature is activated, the text message will also include the city you are calling. When the Stranger knows where they live, it can be a great convincer for the call.

Auto Send Text

With this feature enabled, your text message with all of your revelation information is sent to your Stranger without the need to touch your phone. This creates a truly seamless presentation.

Number Reveal

The number modules allows any number, birthday, or time to be revealed by your Stranger. How much change does someone have in their pocket? What date were they born? What time creates a memory for them? What are the numbers in their pin code? There is even an integration with David Penn’s Pi Revelations.

Birthday Reveal (Number Module)

When using the Number revelation module (available as an in-app purchase for Live users and included with Pro), you can turn on “Birthday” mode to convert your four digit number into a month and day for your Stranger to reveal. When your Stranger’s birthday matches your spectators, it generates a huge reaction!

(Texting feature required)

Booktest Reveal

The Booktest module is deceptively powerful. Create your own lists of words from a booktest, objects on a desk or in a purse, birthdays, Wikitest words…anything you can imagine can be created. It’s entirely up to you!

Listen Reveal

Listen is the most powerful module. The Stranger app can listen to your conversation and extract key pieces of information, such as the serial number from a bill, keywords…anything. You can even listen using your Apple Watch and keep your phone in your pocket. Combine this with Spectator Mode for a truly mind blowing effect!

NFC Reveal

Using NFC tags, your possibilities expand greatly. Allow a spectator to select one of 5 envelopes and using NFC tags, the Stranger will know what envelope has been selected!

Nailwriter Reveal

This is a modern digital nailwriter. Using the built in keyboard, enter anything you can imagine…the spectator’s mother’s name, a nickname, a thought of word…anything. And using the swipe keyboard functionality, you can enter this information without the audience giving it a second thought.
