    iPlayingCards is a virtual deck of cards for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that can be used to play most any card game. You determine the rules and procedures for the game just as you would if handed a ‘real’ deck of cards. It gives the user complete freedom to move cards or piles of cards anywhere on a table with no preset rules. Cards can be placed into one of four hands, one on each side of the table. Each hand is visible only when the device is tilted on its side facing one of the players. Two devices can be linked with Bluetooth allowing players to play cards across a room. A fixed number of cards can be dealt at the touch of a Tab Bar item. The size of the cards can be adjusted along with various other characteristics of the deck, the deal and the hands. Automated shuffling generates a completely random deck.

    Note - This full version of iPlayingCards, available for a small fee, has unlimited random shuffling. In the Lite Version of iPlayingCards, available for free from the App Store, the deck can be automatically shuffled into only four predetermined random decks.
