[prMac.com] Williamsburg Virginia, USA - Hunter Research and Technology today announces the availability of Cover Match 1.1 in the iTunes App Store. Cover Match is a mesmerizing match game that uses album art from a user's music library. The game was featured in the "New and Noteworthy" section on iTunes after its introduction in November 2009, and became a top selling game in the music category.
Previously available for the iPhone and iPod touch, Cover Match 1.1 has been redesigned into a universal application that also runs on the new Apple iPad. A custom iPad layout takes advantage of the device's larger, high resolution screen, and can be used in any orientation, landscape or portrait. "Using album cover art as the basis for a match game results in a rich visual experience and makes for very compelling game play" says Todd Hunter, Cover Match co-developer. "On the iPad's beautiful new display, the level of detail and fidelity is totally stunning, and the rendering performance is outstanding."
Cover Match works on any iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later, and iPads running OS 3.2 or later.
Pricing and Availability:
Cover Match 1.1 is available for $1.99 (USD) on the iTunes App Store. Customers who purchase Cover Match can run the single universal app on all of their iPhone OS devices. Existing Cover Match 1.0 owners can upgrade to version 1.1 at no cost. More information, including screenshots, is available on the Hunter Research and Technology website. Media professionals interested in reviewing Cover Match can request a promotional code to download the app from iTunes at no cost.
