...many of us have a smartphone on hand 24/7, [but] few of us have a deck of cards in our pockets as well. Which is why this app that creates a virtual deck and a virtual card table on an iPad is so wonderful. Simply called The Card Table, the app's name reflects its minimal features and options, but don't for a second think that means it's not incredibly useful.
If you know you're around friends with iPhones and need a deck of cards for a game night, now you have one free of charge with the gadgets you already own. Plus, you never have to worry about shuffling properly.
We've all experienced it: you're having a dinner party or social event, and you look up only to find everyone with their heads buried in their iPhones. Now you can use that to your advantage with Card Table.
Card Table is a great little demonstration of what some creative thinking can do using the tools iOS provides ... Card Table is original, clever and useful. Give it a try if you are into card games.
Reviews from the App Store
I like how unique this app is. It's easy to use, pretty to look at, and most importantly - fun! My favorite part is how it let's me really just focus on the game I'm playing and doesn't get in the way.
This app is one of the best apps I've owned. I am excited for future updates. Great app for when you have a couple of friends over that have iPhones.

I love this application! It's awesome to play cards even at times when it isn't convenient. In the park or at the cafe I always have a deck of cards and a clear place to play.
