All-knowing soothsayers, there are a pair of apps that will let you register your predictions and even gloat when they come true. Then again, you probably saw this coming.

Called It! and Sage both appeared in the iTunes store this month as social networking apps. Each lets people make predictions on everything from the next big game (the World Series is right around the corner) to the 2016 presidential election. Followers comment on your visions of the future, affirming you or calling you plain nuts.

Called it! by Uncharted invites you to make a call on questions the app developers continuously post. You can also make a custom predictions. The app tracks your followers with an up or down arrow that shows what you’re full of (wisdom or something more organic?). The app congratulates you when you’ve accurately “Called it!”

Sage by AOL pretty much offers the same experience, except the app gives you badges for your accuracy. You can also use a GIF when you make a prediction or want to show just how good it feels when your prophecies come true.

Both have an easy and visually appealing user interface, but neither company plans to develop a version for crystal balls.
