DesignHammer staff member, Jay Roberts, develops new iPhone Application for Warcraft Trading Card Game

Durham, NC – The iPhone library is now one app stronger with DesignHammer developer, Jay Robert’s new application for the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, with graphics provided by Lead Designer, Frank Yonnetti. The concept for the program came to Roberts after noticing some drawbacks to playing the game at home.

“The biggest problem was that, as the game progressed, the space taken up by resource cards grew and grew,” says Roberts. “The next night I mocked up a simple web-based counter that kept track of resources. We used that instead and it was like night and day. What was frustrating became liberating.”

World of Warcraft, a popular multi-player online role-playing game, has had great success with more than 10 million subscribers worldwide. The extension trading card game simulates the online experience offline, and provides players another opportunity to continue the gaming.

There are a few other TCG applications in the iPhone library currently available, but Roberts feels theirs to offer great value to devotees of the game. “TGC Counter is the only iPhone app that is designed specifically to keep track of resource cards. You will spend more time playing and less time flipping cards.”

Lead Designer Frank Yonnetti stated, “It became very exciting once Apple officially gave the approval. Feels great to be able to contribute to the success of the application with my design work. Very happy with how it turned out and I hope the gaming community will enjoy it.”

The application is now available in the iPhone store. To learn more about the TCG Counter and see a demonstration of the application in action, visit the website.
