iSamurai Bluetooth released

Hi,

iSamurai Bluetooth is now on iTunes.

Bluetooth means that we can battle with our friends anywhere--no Wi-Fi needed. The requirement is iPhone software 3.0.

This new version of iSamurai also adds 8 extra difficulty levels to the single player game. There are still 4 computer opponents but each one has Easy, Medium and Hard settings.

In developing iSamurai Bluetooth, we ran into a bug in iPhone software 3.0 that can cause problems with Bluetooth connections if Wi-Fi is turned on. The same bug can cause Wi-Fi problems if Bluetooth is on. So if you have trouble with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi (in any game--not just iSamurai), try turning the other one off. We submitted a bug report to Apple and they were very helpful. For more info on this, see Bluetooth and Wi-Fi issues.
Quote:
- When you turn off either WiFi or Bluetooth on the phones, the other type of connection (that you didn't turn off) is great, probably because the discovery process doesn't even try - no lags, no problems. Unfortunately this is something the user must do in their Settings.
I am sure that Apple will come up with a permanent solution soon so that it isn't necessary to turn off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

We have plans for more upgrades in the works.
