iStrike: Wii like tennis game using iPhone ($1 Introductory price)

Hey guys

Just released my latest application. Its a windows based Tennis game which you play using your iPhone as Tennis racquet. You hold your iphone and swing it to hit the ball. Just like Nintendo Wii but only for $1 (for next 3 days only, $3 thereafter) .

You can play single player tournament or play with friends in splitscreen multiplayer mode (2-4 players).

You can download iStrike Windows from:
http://imocontroller.com/

App store Link:
http://itunes.apple.com/app/istrike-tennis/id372925098

Also created a youtube video for the game preview:

Please try it out and let me know your feedback.

Couple of things I need feedback from you guys are:
i) is $3 right price or too low or too high?
ii) Currently you need a windows laptop/desktop to play it? How important is a Mac version? Also how about an Xbox one?
iii) was gameplay simple enough or I need to add instructions?
iv) was connecting to windows PC simple?

I) A bit pricey for a less publicised app
ii) I wouldn't get it, I don't have a windows pc, and mac is the main laptop of touch arcade I assume. Both would be awesome, but an iPad version would be best.
iii) It needs instructions really.
iv) N/a

I would actually prefer to see the game on my iPhone screen and swing my iPhone with the game on my iPhone. To answer your questions:

i) is $3 right price or too low or too high?
Too high in my opinion. It seems more in line with $.99 apps
ii) Currently you need a windows laptop/desktop to play it? How important is a Mac version? Also how about an Xbox one?
I only use Mac OS, but I don't really like the concept of having the game actually on a computer and using the iPhone as a controller. At least not for a game this simplistic.
iii) was gameplay simple enough or I need to add instructions?
Looks simple enough.

Good job. I'd like to see where this app goes with future updates.

I agree. Although, I think a game where you look at your iPhone just to see whether you need a forehand or a backhand swing would get repetitive... But then again, that is the same concept as Wii Sports Tennis.

Um ... how would you play a game on the iPhone that requires you to swing the entire device like a tennis racquet? How would you even see the game?

I think it's kind of a neat idea as long as latency is minimal, but tossing my iPhone around and thinking back to all the TVs people impaled with Wiimotes just makes me too damn nervous.
