Currently hard at work on the next major update of Card Shark, which is planned to be submitted soon. Among other things it will be recompiled with the latest tools from Apple to ensure compatibility with future devices.

Custom Decks

Card Shark supports custom decks. Here is a sample deck. The sample deck is 1024x1024 pixels. Higher resolution decks at 2048x2048 are also supported. To install a custom deck on the iPhone/iPad:
  1. Load the custom deck png to your photo library by opening the image in Safari, then holding your finger on the image until "save image" is presented.
  2. Open the iDevice Photo Library to confirm that the image is present and selectable.
  3. Open Card Shark, go to "Options" "Customize" "Deck" then click the "Customi" button.
  4. Select the deck you saved in step#1.

Once a custom deck has been imported into Card Shark, it will be used by Card Shark until you select an alternate deck.

Tools and templates to simplify the construction of custom decks are available upon request. If you are interested in contributing decks to distribute here for use with Card Shark, please contact me.
