    Hey everyone I just converted my app VideoPoker over to the Tour and I'm giving away 50 free copies of the app. In return I would like to have a little feedback on what you think of the app and how easy/hard it is to use on the tour.

    Thanks

    Wow, pretty quiet, posts like this usually have 50 responses in about 10 minutes!

    Everything looks really good with the app, my only suggestion would be that keyboard shortcuts would be fantastic (I tried every key and it doesn't seem like they do anything).

    I really wouldn't care what the shortcuts are, but just one suggestion might be:

    Q, W, E, R and T - for holding on the 5 cards
    I, O and P - Bet One, Bet Max, and Deal

    Thanks for the free copy!! The graphical layout is nice (looks just like the casino machines), but I agree with tnt118 that it would be much better if you had keyboard shortcuts, instead of having to scroll with the trackball.

    Another suggestion would be to add a training mode, that walks you through what you should do for each hand, or maybe just adding a quick "cheat sheet" for reference.

    Okay thanks guys I'm working on adding the shortcut keys right now

    q - 1st card
    w - 2nd card
    e - 3rd card
    r - 4th card
    t - 5th card

    enter - deal
    space - bet max
    0 - bet one

    The shortcuts makes the game even better. Very nice upgrade...
    Any chance to have an "exit" or an "end game" under the menu options? Instead just a close.

    Thanks, this is a great game. Nice and simple. Graphics are really sharp on the Tour. Love the keyboard shortcuts. Would be nice if spacebar could also deal instead of just the enter key, but I'm just nitpicking here.

    Great pricepoint for a solid game.

    Well, it seems that just hitting the back button completely exits the game instead of just hiding it in the background. I'm a huge fan of that.

    Btw, thanks for the upgrade.. Makes the game much more enjoyable and fast-paced (like in the casinos).

    Love the game, thanks. My only suggestion was going to be the same about the shortcuts but you're already on top of this one.
    One question...How do I do the upgrade?

    To upgrade, go to the link you got when on the order receipt and click on the OTA link and then do a page refresh. (well that how I did it)

    I like the game but I keep hitting the end key for deal. Just have to get use to the enter key... piggyback off the other suggestions.

    I've been waiting for a video poker game that works well on the Tour and this is it! The screen resolution is prefect, images are bright and text is very easy to read (I'm a "mature" user who needs glasses for reading, so readability is important to me). Personally, I prefer using the trackball versus keyboard shortcuts, so I'm glad that you left that as an option.

    My only suggestion would be to add simple directions to the menu (eg, explaining keyboard shortcuts, how to play) and an "About" screen so I know what version I'm running (I just downloaded [6:00 PM EDT], so I assume that I'm running the latest version, but I'm not sure).

    One more suggestion. If possible, can you highlight the line of the winning hand? Like if I have three of a kind, highlight the appropriate horizontal line in the upper payout graphic.

    Thanks for developing a great game.

    I downloaded your game and think it's awesome. I too would rather use the trackball over the shortcuts, so thanks for the option! Everything looks great, nothing I see that needs improvements! Thanks

    I'm trying to get the 1.3.2 upgrade OTA and when I go to the link in the email, it says it's downloading 1.3.0. When I download anyway, it downloads, and then says Download Failed. When I click on Details it says "907 Invalid COD, HTTP Error 404: Not Found".

    Downloaded the game, THANK YOU for the coupon. The graphics look great and the keyboard shortcuts are helpful. I've noticed though that some times there is lag when determining if the hand is a winner and I've had a few hands where I have won but I do not receive the credit and I need to hit the escape key to get out (all other keys will not work)

    Thanks for the game. It's pretty well done. My recommendations would be:

    - After a game is ended, you can still toggle cards to be held. It's just a slight annoyance.
    - In Vegas, the games will automatically highlight a row if you have a winning hand. For example, if I get two pairs, the two pair row will light up. I guess Vegas casinos are required to do this so people who are tired won't miss it and ask for new cards.
    - If I win money, I'd like it to highlight the row which indicates what I won (straight, full house, etc).
    - I'd like a help screen which shows what the keyboard shortcuts are. I found the ones that let you hold cards, but I haven't found the ones that let you bet one or bet max.
    - I found that the enter key makes the game deal. Perhaps you can program other keys to also deal, like the space key, etc. I go to Vegas alot, and I've seen people do superstitious things, like dealing by pushing the button this round, and then pulling the lever the next round. lol, this recommendation is more of a novelty item for the superstitious...hehe
