Turf insider October 2013
Iphone release, takeover record x2 and much more!
Results of round 39
This round a true team effort really took an impact on the world top 3! In LinkÃ¶ping, the Turf veteran mipson partnered up with former gold medalist Snusmumriken in an epic fight for zones. Actually both of these maniacs erased the previous takeover record from round 29, held by Mazarin at 5042 takeovers. Amazing indeed, and of course these amount of takeovers results in a fair amount of points aswell, Mipson landing just over 825000 points and Snusmumriken around 730000. In between these two the Ã–rebro turfer Tturf also wanted a piece of the action, scoring around 775000 points and grabbing the silver medal. Amazing achievements and congratulations to all three of you, but especially to mipson who after a long life of turfing, finally could lay his hands on the gold medal :-)
After over three years of Android turfing, today the app was finally released in Apples appstore! A true milestone in Turf history, to say the least. With iTurf now available, we will most certainly see an increase of turfers and as we all know Turf is a game much more fun with more opponents!
The release was acknowledged by articles on both feber.se and 99mac.se and we did see quite a few new turfers out there today. Actually over 800 registered on Turf today and over 200 of them also took at least 1 zone. I would consider that a good result :-) Further more Turf crew pulled out the Turf flag, setting camp on Skeppsholmen in central Stockholm during the day and invited both new and old turfers for a chat and a nice little get together!
The development of the iPhone, and of course the Android app, will continue but I must say that the initial release of the iPhone app looks really nice and smooth. Some really nice features that I know we will see in the Android version soon, like the new cacheable google maps, swiping through chats and toplists and last but not least a really, really fast interface.
All in all, a great release and I'm sending a huge thanks to the developers who makes this possible on their spare time!
