It’s now been just over 3 weeks since the torrent of information unleashed at Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference refreshingly drenched the brains of designers, developers and engineers. I’ve resisted blogging about the public announcements to fully let the impact soak in and gage everyone’s reactions but now feels like a good time to talk about where the future of computing is heading.
Hey, just to let you know Pub Darts 1.2 is now up in the App Store.
The biggest feature this new version supports is Facebook integration. Yes thats right… you can now log in and pull a “friend’s” profile picture straight onto the dartboard ready to let off some steam. Mmm, now if only you could download and try it out for free… wait you can because I made it free for a short while!
Here’s the link for Pub Darts.
So what else is in this free update?
Well I’ll tell you. This is what some people have been begging me for…
- Ability to refresh dartboard
(You can now remove the tiny dart holes)
- Dart sound effects
(Satisfying thuds as a dart hits the board – woop!)
- Bug fixes related to using camera and albums
(Needed fixing particularly for large images)
Just in case you can’t find it, to access Facebook navigate to…
Settings > Boss Image > Camera > Grab From Facebook
Let me know what you’d like to see in the next update. Either in the comments or an email. Of course, you could always leave a really positive review if you enjoy it 😀
When I first launched Pub Darts last March, I got many great positive messages from people who love throwing darts at their boss’s picture! I also got much negative feedback from people who found the throwing mechanism difficult or not as intuitive as I thought it was. Therefore adding instructions to version 1.1 was very important to avoiding those 1 star reviews!
However due to work commitments it has had to sit on the back-burner but with the recent release of the iPhone 4, I couldn’t help but update Pub Darts with gorgeous high resolution artwork. I also managed to add in some instructions, make a new icon, fix a few bugs, allow games to save themselves when you quit and completely redo the shadows to be more ‘iPhone-like’. This free update can be grabbed immediately from your iPhone by updating in the App Store application.
More updates are coming soon. Feel free to suggest some features you’d like to see. If you’ve yet to experience Pub Darts on your iPhone, grab it for free now.
Hooray. My iPhone game, Pub Darts is in the App Store. It’s a slick dartboard game with the added bonus of being able snap your boss/greedy banker and throw darts at their image. Just don’t let them catch you 😉
Buy it now for only £1.19 ($1.99). For a short time only it’s now £0.69! Grab it now.
