    "Mark Wilson is an accomplished magician, and he does well to explain the basics of magic to a true novice. In his "Complete Course in Magic", I learned several basic magic tricks from a place of no experience. My only complaint is that this is a paid resource, when perhaps better resources exist in a multimedia format free of charge."

    "This app contains some amazing magic tricks in it. I love that I can reference this on the go. A lot of the tricks I wanted to learn were paid in-app purchases though. The app seems a bit heavy on the ads as well."

    "I personally tired learning how to perform magic tricks at a very young age. I love the fact that you can trick and mis-direct people into thinking of one thing when in reality something else is happening. But when I was trying to learn my first instinct was to go to you tube. This site would be very handy but to be honest all the information is already available by you tube. It is nice app to navigate but you tube has been around much longer and more people know about it. "
