Hey all ?


Stardock is making a physical version of our iOS card game Dead Man?s Draw ? if we make our funding goal, anyway. We?ve launched a Kickstarter (priced to not make us any money even if successful; this is for our fans) for a high-quality print run of Dead Man?s Draw. 


We honestly don?t know if enough people are interested for this to make sense, but we had so much fun playing the prototype Dead Man?s Draw decks we printed during the development of the iOS game that we wanted to share.


It may not be online multiplayer, but we promise you that four-player Dead Man?s Draw around a card table is even better ;)

Dead Man?s Draw is now free on the App Store ? we?ve changed it into a free-to-play title but kept all the original content, plus the 14 tournaments we?ve added since launch, completely free of charge.

      YouTube for iOS adds support for picture-in-picture mode in the US
      by Jay Bonggolto

      YouTube confirmed today that it has started rolling out support for picture-in-picture (PiP) mode to its iOS app in the U.S. The feature is available initially to premium subscribers, with a wider release for everyone in the country scheduled soon.

      The feature offers a nifty option to watch a video in a small pop-up window on top of other tasks you want to do on your device at the same time. It comes in handy for occasions when you want to open your email, for example, and continue watching a video on the app at the same time. You can do so simply by playing a video in the app and then tapping the home button. The video will then shrink into a smaller player.

      It has been available for quite sometime now, although it's limited only to certain platforms. For example, the capability was released to YouTube users on Android 8.0 Oreo for free in the U.S. back in 2018 after exclusively launching on YouTube's premium version.

      Apple also introduced support for PiP when it announced iOS 14 in June of last year, allowing YouTube's mobile site users to watch a video on Safari on top of other tasks. However, that capability vanished in September 2020 for non-premium YouTube members. It was reinstated a month later on the service's mobile site for those users.

      Apple is shutting down Dark Sky's iOS app and website in 2022
      by Fiza Ali

      Apple acquired the hyperlocal weather app, Dark Sky, in 2020 and, at that time, it was highly likely that it would shut down Dark Sky's apps and website in the same year. However, the company also said that there would be "no changes to Dark Sky for iOS" at that time.

      In 2021, we see that there is a small update to the Dark Sky blog that appears to be adding a new shuttering date for the Dark Sky iOS App, API, and website. Adam Grossman, the co-founder of the Dark Sky weather app, wrote:

      We hear this news shortly after Apple announced an overhaul to iOS' inbuilt weather app during WWDC. While the wording on the website doesn't explicitly say that the service will be "shut down" per se, it does seem that it is reaching its end of life.

      Previously, the Dark Sky website was scheduled to shut down in August 2020 while the API was scheduled to for the same at the end of 2021. Apple already killed Dark Sky's Android app back in August 2020.

      Samsung's SmartThings gets a new interface in latest update
      by Paul Hill

      Samsung has announced that its SmartThings software for mobile and desktop has been updated complete with a new interface that’s easier to use and delivers faster load times. Despite the new interface, Samsung says that the update will ensure a seamless transition from the old interface.

      Commenting on the new SmartThings app, Jaeyeon Jung, Corporate Vice President at Samsung Electronics, said:

      The new app is split into five categories, Favourites, Devices, Life, Automations, and Menu. The Favourites hub is the new home screen of the app and gives quicker access to frequently used devices, scenes, and services. Devices lets you control each of your connected devices, Life allows you to keep up with all the latest connected living developments, Automations lets you have devices work in tandem, and the Menu is where all the additional SmartThings features live including SmartThings Labs, Notifications, History, and Settings.

      The new interface is available on Android devices starting today and the update for iOS is due in the near future. The Windows version is available for the Galaxy Book and other Windows PCs.
