[prMac.com] Reston, VA - FlipSide5, Inc., makers of the popular web editions of Tic-Tac-Touch and 4InARow touch are now launching versions to download and install, allowing players to own these games on their iPhone and iPod Touch. Both these products, Tic-Tac-Touch and 4InARow touch, are designed to be amazingly "simple, fun and wow", refreshing these ageless classics for today's generation.
Back in November 2007, Michael Sanford, President of the newly formed FlipSide5, Inc. created the now popular iPhone web apps, Tic-Tac-Touch Web Edition and 4InARow touch Web Edition. There have been over 1,500,000 games played so far and FlipSide5 has received thousands of emails from their users requesting native versions of these games, available to download and install on the iPhone and iPod touch.
"Why not take something ordinary and make it into something extraordinary," says Sanford. "Everyone plays these classic games already, so popularity is guaranteed."
"Great for iPhone. One player or two." said one 4InARow touch user, "I travel with my daughter by train almost every weekend. This is a great way to pass the time."
FlipSide5, Inc. was founded with one thing in mind; world-class quality. That mission carries through to their work with Tic-Tac-Touch and 4InARow touch for the iPhone and iPod Touch, using compelling technologies like multi-touch, accelerometer support and sound.
Play against opponents online via EDGE, WiFi or 3G, taunting or encouraging their efforts with instant messages. Also, using the built-in iPhone location technology, see the country where your online opponent is located. Instant messages are translated automatically to your opponent's native language (supported languages only). Many more features are listed on FlipSide5's website.
In 1997, Michael Sanford co-founded a Java development tools company, InLine Software. After selling his share in 2001, Michael was on the lookout for projects he could pour his heart and soul into. Six years later in November 2007, Sanford founded FlipSide5, Inc. in Reston, Virginia. The goal is to bring "simple, fun and wow" software to iPhone/iPod touch users.
