I have the real dice version of this, and it's a fun way to pass the time. While this is a cute, original implementation of that game, it's very awkward on an iPad. Pressing and shaking a full-size iPad can get quite dangerous, not to mention just plain awkward hand and finger placement on the screen. You need to implement an alternative rolling method for the larger iPad imho. Works great as is on an iPhone/iPod though.

BTW, it took many tries before it sunk in that the "press and hold to shake" button meant that you pressed the button and physically shook your device. Quite frankly my first thought was that this selection performed the shaking artificially for you, thus I wondered why my pressing the button did "nothing". A better explanation is needed for this button.

Thanks dclose,

Yeah, I have focused on the phone version so the shaking can feel a bit awkward on the iPad. I'll think about an alternative rolling method for large devices. Thanks again.
