Random Magic card on the phone
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“I’ve been looking for an app to see random Magic the Gathering cards on my phone but I was unable to find any in the app store.”
“You can create a pseudo-app to achieve the same effect. It looks something like this:
When you press the curved arrow at the bottom of the card, it generates a new random card.”
“That’s exactly what I want! How do you do it?”
“Step 1: Open an internet browser app on your phone. I use Google Chrome.
Step 2: Go to the page https://flavortexts.com/.
Step 3: In the browser, open the three-dot menu (in Chrome it’s at the top-right side of the screen) and select the ‘Add to Home screen‘ option. This creates a pseudo-app, which appears as an icon on the phone’s screen.
Step 4: Give it a name. This is the name that will appear under the icon on the phone’s screen.
Whenever you want to see a random card, just tap on the icon.”
