Seriously can't believe I just had to create a thread for this!
(I presumed there would already be one)
I just bought this today and it is my new favourite app, if you like card games and have the physical cards you can scan all your cards into the app and play your game on your iPad without having to get out and setup your cards each time.
This might not sound great to everyone but this is brilliant for those who will use it. You get to create boxes of cards that you can then split down into separate decks.
For example I just scanned in all my space hulk death angel cards and there all there in one game section (box1) but then there split down further into separate decks like the enemy's, event cards, location cards etc.

It took a bit of figuring out to start with but after that its brilliant.
Here's a pic of how it can turn out.
Can't believe I haven't found this before now.

Wow this is impressive. I'm really curious to see how well it would work with sentinels of the multiverse. Or even mlp ccg once that's up and running.

Would this work with a deck building game like thunderstone?

Yeah, this is a great app. Works really well for things like the LOTR living card game. I've played Shadowrift and Legendary with it, so presumably other deck builders like Thunderstone should work.

How are you adding lots of cards? Taking individual shots, scanning, some other method?

Also, am I the only one that would love an iPhone version? Take out the importing and just give me access to a few of my decks. Would be great for games like Dice Town where digital cards mean all I need are dice and a few chits to take the game everywhere with me.

You could search for card images, or check out the many databases...save to camera roll and import that way.

Are you actually able to set up a proper game of Death Angel using this?

I have the original card game too so would be interested to what extent it functions. Tried Citadels?
