Now this is clever: Card Table (free) really isn’t a card game. As the developer claims, “It’s every card video game.” Exactly what you obtain is a virtual deck of cards.

Your iPad is the table, and an iPhone or iPod touch holds your individual hands. You could move cards between tools with a swipe, so you can see a card leave the iPad and slide over to an iPhone. It behaves for great deals of card games like casino poker, blackjack, spades, bridge or any type of video game that collaborates with a 52-card deck.

You associate with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, and the iPad needs a Video game Facility account. There’s no web server in the mix– every little thing passes between your iOS tools. That’s all there is to it. You could shuffle the deck, select the card backs and fronts, and set the positions of the iPhones around the table to match your bodily areas.

Card Table is a terrific little presentation of just what some creativity could do making use of the tools iOS offers. The only constraint I see is that the iPad always needs to be the table. If you have two iPads one can’t be the hand.

That would certainly seem a basic function to add.

The app calls for iOS 7 or later on, and it is optimized for the iPhone 5. Your device can be in portrait or landscape mode. Card Table is initial, smart and valuable. Give it a try if you enjoy card games.
