Batter Up Baseball (Bug noted by developer)

[App Store Link, $2.99]

Has anyone else found that the flicking motion required to hit home runs in this Skyworks game produces inconsistent results? The game has potential, but in its current state it is very frustrating.

Thanks for the heads up on thetitle. Just tried to but while I'm at the gym but it's over 10mb. Whoops!

Is this a 2d or 3d app?

It looks prerendered from the screenshots.

Will grab it later today. Will be great reference material to see what the competition is putting up against TouchSports Batting 1000.

Thx!

Well, until HHG steps up to the plate and shows us some pre-release video or at least screen shots, the standard of reference is still the upcoming Flick Baseball by Freeverse...
