As a new effort to update all our old apps we are proud to announce iDuelpro 4.0. This new update of our trading card game lifepoints keeper includes support for iOS 9 and all modern iPhones, a completely new UI and icon, sharing options and a turn-by-turn history view of your finished duel.
iDuelpro for iOS received its last update almost 6 years ago, so an update was long overdue.
Here’s the list of new or improved features for v4.0:
New minimal UI
Intro explaining the controls (replacement for help file)
Ability to keep track of 2 players side by side by rotating the device
Ability to share info about the duel on social media
A turn-by-turn history at the end of each duel (Only in full version)
Renewed dice/coin view with animations (Only in full version)
Features that were removed:
Spell counter/token overlay
Statistics in settings panel (wins/losses/draws)
The features that were removed will be added again in future versions if demand is high enough.
A few weeks ago we first released a paid version of our yugioh LPC for iPhone, iDuelpro Mobile (v3.0) and now we already have a new update available. Dramatic updates always have drawbacks and receive a lot of criticism and hence some things had to be fixed and updated.
The “10.000” button is now removed and replaced by a button which pops-up a dialog to deal a custom amount of damage or to restore a custom amount of lifepoints, there is an undo button added to undo the last action as requested by some users and a button for direct kill combo’s or cards like exodia or destiny board.
If iDuelpro Mobile will keep on existing is still unclear, yesterday we had completely no sales and in the first two weeks Apple allowed thousands of people to update for free thus creating a potential loss of hundreds of dollars. We still have the cheapest full yu-gi-oh LPC available for the iPhone considering that any other LPC is 4,99$ or more, but since iDuelpro became paid people just don’t seem that interested.
I red a few comments on the current test release of iDuelpro Mobile for the iPhone and I learned a few things out of this. So I started the development for iDuelpro Mobile 2.0 and it’s already finished!
But don’t cheer too soon, it still has to be put online and this release process could suffer gigantic issues because, well the service Apple provides for iPhone developers just sucks.
You can expect the following improvements :
-Ability to add lifepoints
-Lifepoints bars to get a visual interpretation of a player’s lifepoints
-Quick keys to subtract amounts as 1000, 500 or 100
-Slightly altered interface
-Special page for Duelpro/iDuelpro/iDuelpro Mobile
So I hope you will enjoy this release if I ever succeed to release it into the App Store. It is expected to be released within the next 3 weeks.
EDIT (4th of January 09′ 00:05 (GMT+1)) :
I was able to upload the 2.0 version after struggling with the iPhone SDK and the iTunes uploader. I had to retry 20 times, but the result is there, V2.0 is in review and now it’s all in Apple’s hands…
