Do you want to show your friends how much cooler your iPhone is than their Nexus One? iStalkr can do it. iStalkr is a magic trick that will convince your friends – or your teenage children – that you know where they are, anytime you want to. iSkalkr has fooled some serious skeptics. Great for April Fool’s Day or anytime.

Here’s how it looks to the audience. You tell a friend that you can find the location of their mobile phone. Fire up iStalkr, wait for the “uplink status” light to turn green, select their name from your Contacts, click on their phone number and watch as iStalkr shows a map centered right where you (and they) are standing! After the initial shock wears off, your audience will guess that iStalker simply draws a map of the current location, labelled with someone’s phone number. To prove this isn’t true, you select someone else from your Contacts list who is not there with you. iStalker draws a map showing that they are at home, or at work.

Here’s how it works: When you select a mobile phone number from your Contacts, iStalkr will do one of three things; it will either draw a map centered on your current location, or a map centered on the Contact’s address, or display an error message saying that the phone could not be located. iStalkr decides what to do based on a little trick you can learn easily. With even a small amount of practice, the sleight-of-hand is undetectable.

The trick to iStalkr is in how you press the “Stalk!” button after selecting a Contact. Press down in the left third of the button and iStalkr will draw a map centered on the Contact’s Home address. If there is no Home address, iStalkr will use any address it finds. iStalkr will display an error message if it cannot locate the address. Press down in the center third of the “Stalk!” button and iStalkr will draw a map of the current location. Press down in the right third of the button and iStalkr will display an error message that the phone could not be located. With this combination, you can fool anyone.

The “uplink status” light is your indication that your iPhone knows its position accurately enough to draw a map of the current location. iStalkr will find your location using GPS or data services, whatever is available. When the indicator light is red, your iPhone is still trying to figure out where it is and iStalkr map drawing is disabled.

In order to be able to show a map of a Contact’s address, iStalkr relies on a well-formed address in the Contact information. If you are having trouble getting maps for addresses to display, try entering the contact shown in the screenshot below. You should be able to get the same result as the screenshot.

iStalkr is a fun and easy magic trick. Try it today.
