PRAISE FOR POKER PALS
Imagine if Poker by Zynga and Words With Friends were combined to form a super-addicting hybrid of the two. Well you can stop imagining because thanks to Chillingo fantasy is now reality with Poker Pals AppPicker, 4/5

Poker Pals just boarded my Addiction Train Appy Awards

"...I would be snatching up my iPod every couple of minutes to make my next turn, juggling several games at once, like a crazed poker addict." TouchArcade, 4/5

"Poker Pals is the best online turn based game in the App Store that you will no doubt love every minute of." Apple N Apps

"Poker Pals is a brilliant mix of poker and Scrabble that shouldnt be missed." GameZebo

"...the core game is a lot of fun (especially as an asynchronous title), and you can start games with friends right through Game Center..." TUAW, 4/5

"Poker Pals is an unusual, simple, and fun multiplayer title that hides a surprising amount of depth." Pocket Gamer, 8/10

Chillingo answered with a perfect game for the casual market: Poker Pals. A game that doesnt demand that you know poker that well, but still retains some of the excitement of the real thing. TouchGen Editors Choice

All in all, Poker Pals is an awesome mash-up of two classics, and we cant recommend it enough to fans of board games. Slide to Play, 4/4

Wow, this game is a blast. As expected, it's a mix of Swords & Poker gameplay with the asynchronous multiplayer system of games like WWF. You can also play games with AI on three different difficulty levels. Highly recommended from my initial impressions. Start a game with 'backtothis' if you're up for one.

Looks promising, but I tried the lite version and it crashed immediately (no restart, btw) on iOS 4.2.1, so I dunno...

I don't want a signature.
