Apple pulls Texas Hold’em from App Store

Apple has pulled Texas Hold’em, its only iOS game, from the App Store. It debuted as a non-iOS game in 2006 and was reworked in 2008 when the App Store was opened to 3rd-party iOS developers. It hasn’t been updated for a while and never even got Game Center integration.

I long suspected that Jobs had little interest in games and that Apple featured Hold’em in ’08 mainly to show big name game developers what could be done with iOS.

So long, Texas Hold’em. Fold.
