Update Submitted!

I’ve submitted my update for MachDice! Here’s a review of some of the new features for 2.0:

Wait, I hear you asking: “What’s the One-Roll Engine?”. Check out theย wikipedia article. It’s a neat system that involves counting matches instead of totaling values and a special “wiggle die” so it was an interesting system to implement for this device. I’ve also implemented subtotals for those of you that want your dice totaled separately (like a d20 to hit and 3d4 for damage)ย and bucket counts to do things like rolling 30d6 and counting the number of 5s and 6s. All of these things will be accessible through the new settings window.

The update will be free for anyone that’s already purchased MachDice! But since a number of people have asked … yes, I will accept more of your money.

    Fantastic — cannot wait! I actually sold my sister and brother-in-law on buying iPhones because of your app… great concept, amazing UI, and beats the hell out of any similar app on the iTunes store. Great job!

    Rock on Mach. We knew you would figure those bugs out. I can’t wait to use all the new features.

    I just saw the new iPod Touch commercial earlier today for the first time. They show Motion X’s dice program which is too bad because yours beats theirs hands down. Let’s hope for the next one, eh? ๐Ÿ˜›

    ROCK. ON.

    I eagerly await it. As does my Warhammer 40K and Tunnels & Trolls gameplay experience!

    I am really looking forward to this upgrade. I originally bought to support the development, but this upgrade will really make this very useful. Any idea when it will become available? I have been checking for updates every few hours! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. scott Says:

    Me, too! How long does it usually take to become available?

  12. Mach Says:

    Thanks, everyone, for the continued support! I have no idea how long it’ll take to go through the approval process. But apparently, there’s quite a big backlog of submissions at Apple. So my guess is that it’ll be a week or two.

    In the meantime, I recorded a demo video for all the new features. It’s uploading to YouTube now and should be up in about an hour or so. I’ll make a post of it when it’s ready. It may not be as good as getting the update yourself, but at least you’ll get to see what it looks like. =)
