    SouthernTouch Technologies is a new small software company ... blah blah blah ....


    It's me and one other guy, and we stay up nights and weekends, alienating our wives by writing apps. Our flagship product is SouthernTouch Spades, and we are very proud of the AI. We played spades through much of college and eventually received degrees in Computer Science.

    Over the past year or two we've had a hard time deciding if the existing spades apps were written by programmers who didn't know how to play the game, or card sharks who didn't know how to program. Most of them have improved a bit since we've started this project, but I still believe that SouthernTouch Spades offers a great user experience with computer players who act like they used to skip class to play spades with their buddies, too.

    Your partner won't try to steal your tricks, and he'll do his best protecting you when you bid blind or nil. Options include a winning score from 250 to 1000 points, 10-bag penalty, 1-click or 2-click play mode, and our new "Partner Confidence" meter.

    What's the "Partner Confidence" meter? It's a graphic that tells you how strong your partner's hand is. If you think that's cheating, you can turn it off. If not, we don't judge. : )

    Anyway, if you want to play a fun card game (and help out two wild-and-crazy-guys in the process), please consider SouthernTouch Spades. It's just $0.99. If you have any questions, issues, or suggestions, e-mail us. I promise, we'll respond.

    Outstanding Game! Please, please, please try your hand at Hearts. Most of the Hearts games don't even seem to try to stop you from shooting the moon.

    EDIT: I just left you feedback on Play. Thanks again!

    Thanks Pete. Feedback like that is very rewarding. If you could put a nice review in the Google Play store it would be greatly appreciated.


    You'll be pleased to know that we are working on a Hearts game right now. My partner and I played many hands of Hearts in college, too. If 3 or 4 hundred thousand of your closest friends bought our Spades game, we'll be able to finish the best Hearts app you'll ever play by next weekend. : ) But if not, we should still have a release sometime in May.

    Thanks again,
