Draft mode available!!! – v.1.1.0 / v.1.1.1

The booster draft mode is finally available! Yes, precisely one month after our initial release, the waiting has come to an end. In this new mode, you and 7 simulated opponents compete in a booster draft where you are supposed to always pick the most suitable card from each pack presented to you. If it were a real draft with real cards (like on FNM events, tournaments or when playing with your friends), you would then have to build a 40-card deck with the cards you picked. As for the MTG Booster app, at the end of the draft you can review your entire card pool and export it to Magic Workstation (MWS).

If you are new to booster drafting, you can learn your first steps in this type of play. And if you are a pro, even although playing against simulated opponents is not the same as playing against human players, you can still practice to draft certain archetypes and just enjoy the simulator at no cost.
Apart from the new draft mode, we have also included several bug fixes and improvements to the app. All of you guys with Android version 2.1 or less, you can finally use the app (sorry for excluding you until now!). Also the booster creation algorithm has been fixed and now is the same as you would find on MTGO. As for new features, we improved overall design and usability and you can now sort your cards. We hope you enjoy the app just as much as we enjoy its development.
If you have anything on your mind, please provide feedback, tell us what you like most about our app, which additional features you would like us to include in future releases and what you dislike. Since we are now starting our Christmas holidays, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

[UPDATE]: Version 1.1.1 fixes the last Android 2.1 glitches. Now it REALLY should work.

First Update – Version 1.0.1

First of all, thanks to all of you that have downloaded and installed MTG Booster. Considering it has been our first release, we are glad to see that most of you enjoy the app and can’t wait to see the draft mode. We are not quite there yet however, because several stability issues on some phones have forced us to interrupt our development of that feature and focus on improving stability and minimize memory usage. So that’s mainly what this 1.0.1 update is for. If you are the lucky owner of a Samsung Galaxy or similar phone, you might not even notice the difference very much. But if you have an Android phone with low specs, you should notice it a lot. Plus, some design enhancements and improvements (thanks, Brad!) make this update a must-have for everyone.

From now on and for the next couple of weeks, we are going to focus on the creation of the booster draft mode. We are really excited to publish that feature, so be sure we will not take long. Our initial estimate is mid-December, but hey, it’s Android, so we can never be sure what is going to happen along the way. In the meantime, as always, please provide feedback, tell us what you like most about our app, which additional features you would like us to include in future releases and what you dislike. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

First Release

We finally released the first version of MTG Booster!!!

As of today, you can browse the Innistrad Edition, add your favourite cards to a wish list and create Innistrad boosters. We know we still have a long way to go in order to have a complete Magic app, but we think and hope that this first release serves as a good starting point. In a couple of weeks already, if all goes well in mid december, we hope to be able to add a booster draft mode to MTG Booster, which simulates a real booster draft without the need to spend your money on cards.

So for now, please provide feedback, tell us what you like most about our app, which additional features you would like us to include in future releases and what you dislike. Any feedback, be it positive or negative, is greatly appreciated as it will guide us towards making a better and more enjoyable app.
