App description: iPadinCanada.ca: "Im not going to go as far as to say this is the best dice simulator on the App Store, because I havent played all of them, but what I can say is that it is definitely a contender."

Finally, one of the most advanced Dice Games comes to iPad!

- Play Dice Games in a fantastic 3D Environment

- Physics simulation using the Nvida PhysX engine

- Comes with 2 Games against AI or other Players and with 2 different styles in the Dice Simulator:
The popular family game "Dice 10000" (also called Farkle, Zilch, Foo, Boxcar, Bogus or Crap Out)
and the classic pub game "Shut the Box" (also called Tric-Trac, Canonga or Klackers)

- Play against AI or up to 4 others!

- Simulator: A Mode to play "Mia" (a kind of Liar Dice or Poker Dice) with 2 or 5 Dice

- Simulator: Option to lay dice aside (useful for some styles of dice games like Yacht)

- Simulator: Use up to 6 dice

- Option to shake the dice cup by shaking your device

- Ultra realistic dice sounds (depending on the collision reports of the physics engine)

- Amazing Soundtrack

- Local Highscores for 10.000 and Shut the Box.

- Enhanced graphics on iPad 2

No dice at hand? So far there are many dice Apps available, but this one is unique!

For the first time you will have the real dice experience: Shake the cup, watch them rolling and bouncing, you will hear the sound of the slightest movement of the dice - the simulation is so realistic you might even see cocked dice!
This all is placed in an original gambling den 3D environment using stunning camera tracking shots. That's not all: Newton's Dice HD comes with two popular dice games!

You will never have to search all over your house for dice again!

Dice games are boring, right... wait, all these 2D dice games with ugly graphics and random number generators are boring.

But this one is is just different, its little iPhone brother got featured by Apple in 65 countries for several weeks. It's totally realistic by using a physics engine for the dice and it comes in a total 3D Environment using OpenGL ES 2.0 to support the advanced iPad & iPad 2 graphics.

I bought the iPhone version soon after it came out. It's great to see an iPad2 version.

Thank you. On the iPad 2 it is just a little different to iPad 1 (mostly the water reflections and faster animation speeds)

There are 2 known Bugs!

1st: Point Table Image of 10000 is wrong lol, a 1 should be worth 100 and a 5 should be worth 50. Sorry for that stupid mix up.

2nd: If you select to use just one die in the dice sim then you might get an invisible die in shut the box later. If you run into this problem abort the game and go back to the dcie sim in classic mode and select to play with 5 dice.

I will fix these bugs tomorrow, but the review of an update can take up to a week.

I have been using this app on my iPod Touch for over 6 months now, great little app, beats the pants off searching for dice that roll onto the floor when we play board games with the kids, and the kids prefer using the iPod rather than "real dice".
Graphics are fantastic on iPod Touch, I guess this HD version will look even better on iPad ......... Dear Santa

The 1.1 update is "Waiting For Review"

Fixed a rare invisible dice bug
Graphic of the points table in 10,000 corrected (points for rolling a 5 or a 1 was mixed up)
