The KS page mentioned the possibility of an Android (later, maybe iOS?) app. I wondered whether there'd been any progress on that and if there's some kind of timescale? Just curious!

The last page of the rule book also mentions it...

I'm also very curious about this. I introduced Paperback to my mother last night and would love to continue playing with her remotely. She loves word game apps on her phone.

, it's been a while, is there any news on the app? Even if it's not great news, it's better to know.

Actually, also, it's just occurred to me, is there any way I can help out? I"m not a stranger to Android development. I haven't done lots but certainly enough that I could help out in some ways if needed.

The developer was very close to done, but had some health issues come up. He should be working on it again soon, but if not, I'll be looking for another developer. Any help is welcome!

Sorry he's been unwell, I hope he's better soon! If he needs or wants any help, just let me know. :-)

Hi,

The post about Saboteur in the iOS board games blog reminded me. Any news on the status of the Paperback app?

I do have a new developer working on it, no estimate on completion. We will probably get the single player vs AI version running before the asynchronous multiplayer. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks, that's good to hear!

Seems like a sensible way to get going. How about pass and play? That's quite minimal to do once the interface is done.

No rush, anyway. Just nice to know it's on the horizon and what the progress is. :-)

Any updates on this? Don't want to bother you, but it has been quite a while. Has it stalled or stopped completely? I hope not, I'd love an app version of this game.

Thanks!

With the success of Burgle Bros, I've found a developer and started development on Paperback! Unfortunately we have to start from scratch on code.

Ooh, exciting! Shame you had to start from scratch, but that clip looks pretty advanced UI-wise already. Here's hoping to see the app soon.

Thanks!

Happy to hear this. I just got my copy last week and I'm enjoying the heck out of it. My wife (the non-game person) will even consent to play on rare occasions, but I'm eager for more opportunities to play (besides solitaire.) I'm visiting my family at Christmas and I think many of them will like it, so it'd be great to be able to play them via iOS after I return.

P.S. If you need beta testers, I'd be happy to help!
