Are it the dueling fanatics who get an early Christmas gift or are TCG’s becoming popular again? Anyway, iDuelpro was already popular, but it’s now even more popular and really becoming the killer Yu-gi-oh! App for iPhone & iPod Touch. The other versions for eg. Mac and Windows are also doing fantastic.
Especially the tons of extra features that the last updates brought are bringing a lot of extra Yu-gi-oh! and Magic! The Gathering players. We will even have to create a MTG variant of iDuelpro since the current version is more geared towards the Yu-gi-oh! TCG. But the fact that most versions except for the advanced iDuelpro for iPhone are free has something to do with the immense success and the nearly one million users worldwide.
Since a few days we are working hard to make a new version of our Yu-gi-oh! calculator iDuelpro available to our users. This version will include a few interesting changes therefore we skip one version from v3.3 to v3.5 to point at its importance.
For the first time in-App pop-up windows will be used to expand iDuelpro. This may not interest you a lot, but it enables the use of settings panes, easier dialog boxes and of course the Spell Counter/token tool you have all been requesting for so long.
And that’s probably one of the 2 biggest changes in iDuelpro 3.5, Token/Spell Counter support. I added it exactly as “Masteranza” suggested in his iTunes App Store review as you will see in the screenshots of the current development version.
Most people suggested a token counter, but I made a hybrid also adding spell counter support. You can put more than just 1 or 0 in the token table, also enabling the use of spell counters. (up to 999) The counter’s state is also saved when the application is quit and is reset when starting a new game.
So this version of iDuelpro actually comes with 19.980 virtual coins included which you can to keep track of spell counters or as a replacement for tokens.
Other things that will be implemented will be eg. a settings pane in which you can set both player’s names and initial lifepoints and where you can view your amounts of wins/losses/draws. An extra icon which enables you to follow us on twitter. An updated help file and of course various bug fixes and added confirmation message to prevent false touches.
iDuelpro v3.5 will be completed somewhere next week but the current version can already be downloaded here>
