Daily iPhone App: Poker Knight combines poker hands with an RPG

Poker Knight is a game that I was really excited to see coming to the App Store. I'm a big fan of poker, and I'm a big fan of role-playing games, so when that trailer arrived, I was right away looking forward to seeing what this one was like. Unfortunately, it didn't quite live up to my expec...

TUAW's Daily iPhone App: Zynga Poker

Zynga has gained a reputation as the evil empire lately, and to a certain extent that's true -- a lot of the company's Facebook "games" aren't much more than pyramid scams. But Texas Hold'Em poker is a game that will always have players, and for all of Zynga's drama, their Poker app has been pr...

TUAW's Daily App: World Series of Poker Hold 'em Legend

While in Las Vegas at CES last week, I didn't have a lot of time to gamble, but I did get to play a few hands of video poker, and that combined with my preview of Full House Poker for the Xbox had me looking for a poker game to scratch the itch when I got back home on Sunday. I poked around the App...

App demo: Chinese 13 Card Poker

We looked at Smappsoft's Scales and Modes app a while ago, and they reminded me of their other app that we saw at WWDC: Chinese 13 Card Poker for the iPhone and iPad. It is a well-designed and fast poker game with just the right amount of feedback as you play. Better yet, you can use multiple devi...

TUAW's Daily App: Pokerbot

We posted about another poker app back at WWDC, and the developer of Pokerbot got in touch with us to show off his app as well. Pokerbot is a little bit different than your standard hold'em poker game. It's a straight up one-on-one battle, so the game is really built for learning how to play poker w...

App demo: Poker 1 on 1 with Vanessa Rousso

Celebrity endorsements fail to impress me, and Poker 1 on 1 with Vanessa Rousso is no different. Despite being on the teevee (as we say around these parts), all I'm looking for is her expertise in creating a great poker game for the iPhone. Well Headlight Software and Vanessa have a nice, attrac...

Andy Bloch at the World Series of Poker with TUAW and his iPad

The other day we showed you a photo of poker pro Andy Bloch with his iPad at the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas. Little did we know that Andy was going to find and read the post. According to photographer BJ Nemeth, Bloch called him over to say it would be a bit surreal to have a photo t...

You can bet on it: Talkcast taking a holiday break, iPad makes the scene at WSOP

Our loyal talkcast crew is getting some well-deserved R&R this holiday weekend, so there's no show tonight -- we'll be back in force next weekend for the full WWDC preview. Speaking of four-letter events that begin with W, reader BJ Nemeth sent a heads-up about this great picture of competito...

TUAW's Daily App: Sword and Poker

Note: We started up our new feature last week, titling it "App Of The Day" without recalling that our friend Jordan had already used that name for his site. So, we're renaming our "one great app, every day" feature. If you have a suggestion, share it in the comments below, and if we pick yours, we'...

First Look: Game Table for the iPad

Here's some screenshots for another upcoming iPad app called Game Table. The app brings Checkers, Chess, and various card games onto Apple's tablet with detailed graphics and an "intuitive" interface -- the developers claim it's like carrying full board games around with you, but without all the li...

MotionX: Poker Quest

One of the first apps I downloaded when I inherited my brother's old iPhone was MotionX Dice. It was brilliant in its execution: 3D dice rendered with loving detail, lots of custom dice and perfect use of the accelerometer. MotionX games are variations on a theme, however, and they've taken their Mo...

First Look: Texas Hold 'Em

I've been having such a good time getting my virtual wallet cleaned out by my Texas Hold 'Em opponents that it's taken me three days to write this post! Texas Hold 'Em is an iPhone port of the popular Apple iPod game that came out a few years ago. If you're a fan of poker tournaments or just intrigu...
