Subliminal Message Pro

2.12.1
24 January 2017

Replicate subliminal messaging with customized flashing text.

Overview

Subliminal Message Pro lets you explore the idea of subliminal messages. Messages up to 80 characters are flashed in the middle of your display, on top of everything. The SMP Control Panel lets you set the period between flashes, the font size and color, font darkness, choice of message selection (in list order or at random), possibility of reverse spelling, and automatic minimize of Control Panel upon launch. Shortcut Option-z lets the User Pause/Continue flashes. Five message categories with five messages each are provided to help you understand how the program works; you can replace these with your own categories and messages.

Categories and messages may include Latin, Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Greek, Korean, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Russian, Afrikaans, Polish, etc., characters. Control Panel settings and location and Message Table information are saved between sessions.

SMP is $20 shareware. You can try SMP in demo mode for ten minutes per launch, after which time the application closes. Registration removes this limitation.

This is a terrific app with lots of potential for mental health professionals. Subliminal priming of the brain can have powerful on perceptions of self and other. Secure Base Priming (attachment theory) can help people develop more constructive emotion regulation strategies that have positive effects on interpersonal relationships. This app could be used therapeutically while people work on their computer. Unfortunately, subliminal advertising has used this technology to get people to purchase things they may not really want or need, and therefore gives subliminal messaging a bad rap. Thanks for developing it. I plan to use it with people who are wanting to improve self-esteem and relationships.

you can get this kind of thing free in a Java version here: http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Utilities/Free-Subliminal-Text.shtml, not sure if they will allow a rival link but the Java is called Free subliminal text.

You can do much the same thing by making a GIF with the right settings (timing,etc) and pay nothing. This is a ridiculous price to pay for this. I might pay 99¢ in the AppStore but only if I was feeling foolish. Sorry, no deal. Shame on you.

Really miss the On-Screen Time and Font Size adjustability found on version 1.5.0 . The font size with version 2.0.0.0 is way too large and can't be adjusted smaller.

I like this funny app, which also actually works. Never seen an app grow in version numbers so quickly, already at number 5. It does get alot of updates, though.

Indeed, these constant, niggling updates add nothing to its already questionable value. Why so many? Because when your product is moral turpitude, you have to market it constantly. These aren’t updates — they’re commercials.

You may not have noticed that the "Darkness" slider also dims the picture. You can make the picture completely impossible to see if you move this slider to the far left. Bring the slider up until the picture is just visible. Paul Young, CSoM

Robert, excellent question on timing. The on-screen time is the time that the information is sent to the screen but different displays have different response times. A flashed message on a slow display will be slower to decay. Paul Young, CSoM

With which CPU and graphics cards do the timing selections test as accurate for pictures? Every setting seems the same--actually the shorter settings seems longer, though this may be because of my expectation that they be less noticeable. I find every image readily recognizable and quite superliminal. Images are even more intrusive by the white background that is flashed around them to fill the entire screen. Oddly, pictures must be kept in a fixed subfolder of ~/Documents instead of a selectable folder or even a subfolder in... ~/Pictures. To make your images available to the program, you can make an alias to your folder of images, move it under ~/Documents, and rename it to "SMPictures".

Open up system preferences, go to displays and check the refresh rate your monitor is running at. Divide 1000 by your refresh rate. This number is the smallest increment, in milliseconds, that your monitor is capable of displaying a message for. For example, a refresh rate of 60 Hz gives an increment of 16.7ms. This means the shortest amount of time the message can be displayed for is 16.7ms. The next increment up would be 33.3ms. The next would be 50ms. The slider in this application gives you the illusion that you have much finer control over the timing than you actually do, because your monitor only refreshes itself a fixed number of times per second (usually in the 50-100 range).
