A few weeks ago I mentioned that I started developing iPhone applications. Well, I have some stuff to show for my work!

I created a Tarot reader for the iPhone. Here is a video of the application:

This started out as a personal Tarot reader, but then I brought it to a party and saw its true potential. People lined up to have me do their readings. And I invented things like having my listeners close their eyes and touch the iPhone to pick their cards. Here is a marketing image I put together that shows the kind of use-cases I'm imagining:

So if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, click here to download Party Tarot. It's starting out at $1.99.

It's going to be marketed under the name Nuclear Elements, my current solo freelance company. I got the card images from a 1909 public domain Rider-Waite-Smith Deck on Wikipedia

Hey Phil,

Watup, congrats, I just put your blog in my rss feed. Hope Austin is treating you well, I am actually eyeing the area myself, but not in the immediate future.

So you are doing iPhone apps now? Looks cool, I started a project to do a card game on S60 but never really finished it (big surprise).

But anyway you should get in touch with my friend Ed McKenzie. We used to write a bunch of DOS games together in high school and he is currently trying to do an iPhone apps startup ( He is technically very brilliant (used to work for Google and Microsoft but bailed to do his own thing).

I think he is still on the waiting list for a device cert. But maybe you guys could get together. Send me an email for his contact info.
