iPlayingCards (Lite) Version 3.2 – A 'virtual' deck of cards for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. (NOTE: Use this App to play card games with other people - just like a 'real' deck; but it is NOT a 'game-playing' program.) Play cards on one or multiple devices (using Game Center, Local WiFi or Bluetooth - Bluetooth works on airplanes). Cards move with the touch of a finger. When playing with a shared device, use four hidden hands – a hand become visible only when the device is tilted on its side facing that direction. When playing with multiple devices, each device can display a different hand. Many features – shuffling, dealing, cutting, flipping, sorting, etc.. Eight classic decks for playing games such as Poker, Sixty-Six, Piquet, Belote, Jass, Durak, Scopa, Mus, Five Hundred, Pinochle, Bezique or Canasta. Fast set-up of 21 different games (including those and Black Jack, Bridge, Crazy Eights, Gin, Go Fish, Hearts, Oh Hell!, Rummy and War).
In this Lite Version, the deck can be automatically shuffled into only six predetermined random decks. An In-App Purchase upgrade, available for a small fee from the iTunes App Store, has unlimited random shuffling. (Manual rearranging of the cards in this Lite Version is possible for those unable to purchase the full version.)
Connect multiple iPhones, iPads or iPod touches together using Game Center (anywhere on Earth) or Local WiFi or Bluetooth (within 30 feet).

Ratings and Reviews
The app will crashed and had difficulty with two players. No matter what settings we selected the app kept reverting to default settings when tried to play. Don't waste your time.
Great playing card game.
This app is awesome. It is completely open ended so you can play any game. Think of it as a digital deck of cards. The game doesn't play itself, you need players to play. This app makes long distance play or places that would blow cards away, able to be played. As for the open ended part: this app only supplies the cards. The rest is up to the players to make rules and play the game. The hardest part (dealing) can be preset, and it even can organize your cards for you! What else could you ask for before telling the game to play itself?
Overall...5/5. Great, open ended app.
Connects multiple devices
This is ‘simply’ a deck of cards - but when multiple devices are connected together it advances any card game to a new level. It shuffles and deals and then lets you move the cards around the table or into your hand. It’s better than a real deck because you can play long distance using the Game Center or anywhere in the room using bluetooth. There is also a tilt mode that is ok.
