New iPad, We’ve Been Waiting For You!

In poker, sometimes you’ve just got to take a chance that the next card will be the one that gives you an unbeatable hand. Well, looks like that just happened for us with the new iPad.

You see, we had a feeling that this iPad was going to have a ‘retina’ display … 4x the number of pixels than the iPad and iPad 2 have. Turns out to be a pretty good bet.

So all along we’ve been building the iPad version of our iOS Poker game with this very detailed iPad retina display in mind (2048 x 1536 pixels to be exact). Just look at how cool this is:

Of course we’ll be supporting the existing iPads with this upcoming release, but isn’t it great when a bet like this pays off?

We think so.

Congrats. What's great is how much it improves the game play giving more detail to the other player's faces.
