Has there been many board games getting the iOS app treatment, will the future of boardgaming be going digital? I already found an app to Can't Stop, but I don't see Qwirkle.

umm.. well as a recommendation, I think that Board games should remain in physical board form, in tandem with electronic/online reproductions of them.

For me the whole appeal is getting to know other people. (Though I also like to play my favourite game and win something now and again whistle)

Isaac, there have been A LOT of boardgames adaptations to iOS recently, from Dominion to Ghost Stories, from Caylus to Puerto Rico...
It is an ever-growing trend, and I'm very happy with it, as long as it doesn't kill the cardboard versions.
But I'm not aware of a Qwirkle version, either available or in development. That might be a nice licence, though.

Is there a list of all the iOS app board games? Maybe Qwirkle will be up there soon

There is/was a Qwirkle clone in the iOS app store.

I can't remember the name...but I've heard it's pretty good.

Remembered the name after posting: "Tricky 6". Don't know how to link to iTunes though, sorry.
