Rummy ScorePad 2 v1.2

Posted by WonderWare on November 6, 2013 at 9:40 PM

It's been a while since I published Rummy ScorePad 2.  It appears that running Rummy ScorePad 2 under iOS 7 is broken!  "New Game" doesn't start one!  We can't have that so I've dug into the code fix the problem and refresh the app at the same time.

Since Rummy has such a wide range of potential points for each round, it was a challenge to find a quick way to enter points.  The original design was to use a slider control along with "fine tuning" button on the ends.  Sadly the available space made the slider somewhat difficult to use reducing it from being a "quick" way to just a "way".

To address the problem I've removed the slider and replaced it with a set of four buttons.  The buttons with a normal arrow change the score by 5.  The buttons with a double arrow change the score by 25.  The combination of these buttons make is quick and easy to enter a variety of scores.

I also received a request to support negative scores.  The lower limit for the points each round now permits values below zero.

Version 1.2 with these features is currently being tested by Apple and should be released shortly.

Enjoy!
