THTouch - Texas Holdem Poker
By Pit Garbe
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
THTouch brings the joy of Texas Hold'em Poker to your iPhone and iPod touch.
It gives you a clever interface that never obscures the view at any of the facts on the table and is incredibly easy to use.
With the unique wheel-like finger interface that always shows you a context sensitive amount of options to select from with a single swipe to the appropriate direction you'll learn to play the game blindly in a matter of just a few minutes.
Don't let those AI players fool you. You can beat them :)
→ play against up to 9 computer controlled players
→ swipe your way to the golden poker chip
→ bets are made in a most natural way, by actually building stacks of chips (again, using easy swipes or simple taps)
→ look up the winning order of hands at any time
→ resume your game at any time (autosaving))
→ enjoy awesome graphics and animations
→ get a hint of your own chances to win a hand
(The selection of the games language is automatically made based on your iPhone or iPod language settings. Many more languages to come.)
Please, read about details and instructions on the games webpage.
I assume you already know the rules of Poker Texas Hold em style.

I have been using this app since it's beta release on jailbroken iPhones on 1.1.3. It was great in beta version but now it is even better. The gameplay is just brilliant, the finger gestures are very simple and intuitive to use. Personally I don't like using the 'wheel' but it's great to have the option to use it. I would recommend that first-time users of this app go and check out the gameplay guide on the developer's website as it will help you to discover the whole potential of the game. For example, as i found out by reading the guide, the interesting 'strength calculator' and the ability to pause the 'end game' by tapping the timer. Pit Garbe offered a refund of the game price to people who donated during its beta development but i'm so pleased with the finished article that i'm not going to take up the offer of the refund. I hope Pit continues with his great work and brings some more brilliant games/apps to the iPhone.
Update. Vastly neglected 😔
Loved this game but have no incentive to return to it.

This of one of the best versions of the game out there. Why?
Fast responsive swipe controls
Clean interface (No stupid avatars on the screen, no unnecessary junk)
Smooth card animations (The CPU dealer even skips a card if they feel like it)
Easy to use once you read the instructions (Hint hint you lot...)
The only things holding me back from a 5 is more gaming features to pad it out:
To help new players, built in instructions would be nice
Some sort of leaderboard or stat tracking
More table choices & card designs
Game related prizes for winning
And none of these are game changers. They'd just be nice additions.
Great App & looking forward to multi player. Thank you.
Definitely should be a free app. I paid due to the incentive of playing in a computer controlled game. It has since in the first couple of uses repeatedly frozen, it's a bit confusing, there are no clear simple go to step my step instructions, there's too much going on at once with all the swiping and no explanation to the swiping and tapping user face you just have to figure it out yourself. If you could get refunds on apps I'd have got one from this after 10 mins!!
