Bold Poker – Going Where No Poker Game Has Gone Before

It is always great to see developers do innovative things with iOS devices for games. Pacific Helm makes you replace your box of checkers with an iPad and now Kater Calling wants you to replace your deck of cards with an iOS app. Bold Poker isn’t your basic poker app on the App Store.
