Description

Deckster is a faithful card deck simulation, with the singular goal of making cards a social activity again.

No rules imposed, you unwrap, unbox, shuffle and deal the cards just like the real thing, and box them up again when you're done.

Why play with somebody else's rules? Include the Jokers; play deuces wild. Deal an extra card (and hope nobody notices!). Deckster just provides and handles the cards for you.

Deckster uses the most natural and intuitive gestures in an experience only possible on the iPhone and iPod touch.

Features:

- High resolution original artwork

- Custom Jokers, Ace of Spades and face cards

- 2 unique decks: the standard "Deckster 101 Casino" in blue and red.

- New decks have cards in authentic factory order.

- Decks retain their card order between uses, just like the real thing.

- Intuitive gestures to deal, discard/burn, turn over cards and square the deck.

- Shake to shuffle, simulating the standard overhand shuffle with random effects: not an inauthentic randomization function!

- Place unwanted cards back in the box

- Collect all cards when finished, and rebox them for safekeeping

- Rotate the device to view your hand.

- Discard and rearrange cards in your hand

Let's face it: carrying a deck of cards with you is just plain cool. I've known that since my teacher confiscated my deck of cards back in grade six. With Deckster, that can never happen to you!

Cool app, but needs some tweaks

:
Deckster is fun to fiddle around with. It's really more of a novelty or a proof-of-concept than anything else, but if you are a gamer geek like me, it prevents you from ever forgetting to bring a deck of cards to a Savage Worlds game. As you can only deal to yourself and there is no play area in front of you, you can't really play any games with the app; it does what it says, though, so I won't knock it for that.

My only gripe is that the controls are a bit imprecise. Sometimes I can deal or flip a card with no trouble, but sometimes my motion just slides the card to the edge of the screen where I can't get to it without trying to flip or deal another card. If I do that, then, I'm never quite sure what the result will be. If I was dealing, will I deal both cards? If I was flipping, which card will flip? Worst of all is putting the cards back into the box. The advertising warns about leaving the cards out of the box (still not sure what will happen if I don't), but the controls for putting the cards back respond inconsistently. It sometimes takes me 4 or 5 minutes to get the box to appear again, no matter how careful I am. In short, improving the precision of the controls so that the "essential" actions are easier is my only suggestion.

Flaws aside, it's a cool little app. It does what I need it to do.
