Minor update to make Blackjack compatible with OS 3.0
Archive for category Blackjack
When the Blackjack program showed up in the iTunes App store there was a surprising bit of information on the description page. According to the App store the program supported German. I quickly went to the iTunes Connect management page to see where I entered in this incorrect information but it was no where to be found. Not even the preview page for the application listed that German was supported.
Apparently the App store looks in the application bundle and lists as supported any language with a localized string file even if there is nothing in the file. Blackjack was written to support multiple languages and a German localized string file was created as a test but all translations were removed before the game was released.
A new version of Blackjack without the German string file will be submitted shortly.
The Blackjack iPhone application has been accepted by the Apple iTunes App store. It should be available starting on Feb. 2. Like the Wheel of Chance application, the whole process took less than 2 weeks and there was only one rejection.
Blackjack has been resubmitted to the iTunes app store with standard buttons that disappear when unneeded instead of the segment control buttons that were utilized at first.
The Blackjack iPhone application was rejected because of a human interface guideline issue. I was using a segment control for the hit, stand, double, etc buttons. Since I wanted to keep the buttons the same size even when there were only 2 options, I simply disabled the unused buttons. This apparently is a no-no.
The Blackjack iPhone application has been resubmitted to the iTunes App store after the addition of a couple of items. Displaying hand totals is now an option and the game now supports 9 different card counting systems.
I decided to add a couple of new features before releasing the Blackjack program so I have removed it from the App store review process. Should only take a day or two.
Thank you to all the beta testers of the Blackjack iPhone application. It has now been submitted to the App store. Since the App store requires a unique name for each application and Blackjack was already taken, the app was submitted under the name “21 Blackjack”.
