After a long period of expectant waiting, I’m very happy to announce that Deck Simulator For Hearthstone has been accepted by Apple and is now available in the Apple Store! I came into the process expecting to be in the review queue for around 6 to 7 days, but the actual wait was closer to two weeks. Fortunately, once the app got into the review process things went smoothly from there, and it was accepted without any issues.
This was our first app and we weren’t sure what to expect, but it was overall a great learning experience.
If you want to find it easily, you can do a quick search for Hearthstone and it should come up in the top ten results (it was #7 when I did a few minutes ago). You can recognize it easily by the blue and green icon, which is shown at the bottom of this post.
In future posts I plan on giving some more detail into the development that went behind this tool as well as how to effectively use it, since there isn’t currently much in-game documentation. Though DSfM (or HSSIM as we like to call it internally) is technically in the “game” category, what it really is a research tool to help you understand and maximize your enjoyment of Blizzard’s wonderful Hearthstone game, which is also free on the app store. If you haven’t tried out Hearthstone, please check out it out I’m sure you’ll quickly get addicted!
So feel free to try out our app and give feedback, since refining any software to reach greatness requires an active user community.
