Application Systems recently updated the iOS version of Cafe International to include asynchronous online multiplayer as well as a ton of other improvements including an auto-facing board for table-top play and iPhone 5 optimization. They've also just decided to put it on sale for 3 days only! Right now you can pick up Cafe International for $1.99USD, down from $4.99USD.
