Card game developers are having a field day preparing their apps for the iPad. iPad users looking for solitaire and other more challenging card games will be able to shuffle virtual card decks on the iPad’s release day or very soon afterward.
Digital Smoke has announced that Solitaire City will be available for the iPad, targeted to be out on launch day on April 3. All Solitaire City versions will be universal applications – meaning the same apps will work on both the iPad and iPhone – and those who have already purchased the iPhone app will be able to download the new universal version at no cost. For new customers, Solitaire City Deluxe will be $5.99, Solitaire City Classic will be $.99, and Solitaire City Lite will be free.
Last but not least, Astraware has stated that it’s aiming to have Astraware Solitaire and a few other titles available at the iPad’s launch. iPad versions may be launched separately at first, to be followed by universal applications later that will work on both the iPad and iPhone.
The current iPhone version of Astraware Solitaire features 12 games and costs $.99.
