Blaine's “Street Magic: See A Card” app was first performed on an iPhone June 17 in Chicago during videotaping of entertainer Ellen DeGeneres’ variety show, which aired on TBS as “Ellen’s Bigger, Longer and Wider Show,” Saturday, June 27. (See clip below) In a press release discussing the app, David says, "This is my favorite piece of magic; it was pivotal in gaining my first TV special. Now, for the first time, I am making it available to magic fans as a download from the Apple app store. Turning the iPhone into a virtual deck of cards is no small feat,” he added. “This is one of the hardest card effects to get right, and Partners 1993 has really demonstrated its technical skills. This application makes every owner of a supported iPhone and iPod touch a magician.”
