1. The lists in the app are SCROLLABLE. That means YOU CAN SCROLL THROUGH THE LISTS to see more different words.
2. You do not have to touch a word on the screen to physically select it, You can just simply look and think of any word you want from the list you see on your screen just be sure that every time you press continue after thinking of a word from the list, THE WORD YOU SELECTED IN YOUR MIND MUST BE VISIBLE SOMEWHERE ON THE SCREEN in that scrollable window.
All above is already mentioned in the app when you go through it just be sure to read and follow the instructions correctly and it should work like a charm.

Effect: You show your spectator a list of about 100 random words (in the app) and you add that these words have been specially short listed to help people visualise. You then ask them to scroll through the same list of words and let them choose a word in their mind and then press continue as they keep staring at the word (You add in order for them to visualise the word better, They should keep staring at the word) the app then shows them a second list of words with the same words but shuffled this time. You ask them to scroll and find their word (the same word that they are thinking of from the last list) as you tell them that this process is just to aid their visualisation (all of this is just a story to take them away from the actual working of the trick) Once they have scrolled and located their word somewhere on the second list. You again tell them the same that keep staring at the word so that you can visualise it better as you ask them to press the continue button. (They do not have to touch a word on the screen to physically select it, They can just simply look and think of any word they want from the list they see on your screen just be sure that every time they press continue after thinking of a word from the list, THE WORD THEY SELECTED IN THEIR MIND MUST BE VISIBLE SOMEWHERE ON THE SCREEN in that scrollable window) Lastly the app will shortlist about 10 words, Ask your spectator to read the words out loud or in their mind (whatever you prefer) and then you take your phone back. The app should now secretly tell you their chosen word if you followed the full instructions correctly. You now look into their eyes take a pause and tell them their word. This should totally surprise your audience and make you look like a crazy mind reader!
Method: You can always let your loved ones play with this app on their own and even share the app password with them (APP PASSWORD IS: SB) for them to try the app but if you want to steal all the lime light here is another way to go about it:
Once you understand the working of the app and once you have practiced it enough on yourself and only when you think that you are ready to perform this for your audience then you can turn on the app, Press the start button on the first screen of the app and hand your phone to your spectator (as you begin to narrate the above script), Let him/her go through the app on their own till the final step pops up (Where app asks them to read the words out loud to a friend or in their mind to themselves just be sure that they are following the app instructions correctly on the way and your narration should be strong) and after they have read the words out loud to you or in their mind (Whatever they wish or you prefer) and just before they touch continue on the screen you can take the phone back and secretly press continue 2 more times in the action of closing the app. (The screen at this point should be away from your audience so that they can't see you are reading the revealed word from the app) The app will analyse and reveal your spectators chosen word that you should now secretly peek like I mentioned above and then immediately lock and keep your phone away. What's left now is the showmanship part now, Maybe look into their eyes and pretend to read their mind and slowly tell them their word and steal all the lime light.
Also Keep in mind to not repeat the trick for the same audience more than once. After you deeply understand the simple yet clever and powerful method behind this trick, You shall love it even more but do not over do this for the same audience or they might figure out the method behind it and if they do by any chance it is still okay, Just be sure that you and everybody around you have a great fun time! ;)
