I’ll admit, we’ve been a little slow with the iPad apps since the launch here on 148Apps. And that is mainly by plan. First, there are just 1/80th of the users of the iPad as their are for the iPhone / iPod Touch. Second, there are still way fewer new iPad apps coming out than there are iPhone apps. And finally, there’s you, our loyal readers. You come here for iPhone and iPod Touch app info. While there is some crossover to the iPad — probably way more than 1/80th of you have iPads, it’s still a much smaller audience. So we’ve been slow to introduce iPad reviews and only occasionally post iPad specific news.

Don’t get me wrong — I love my iPad. Since I got it I probably spend more time per day using it than I do my iPhone. Could be the newness, but I think it’s just a more compelling device. And the future is very bright for it.

That’s a pretty long and off topic introduction to this app. It’s one of my favorite iPad games so far and I think it’s about time I share it with you. One of the things that really makes it shine is the human interaction with the game, full screen touch, is so natural. There’s no virtual d-pad to feel awkward using, it’s full screen touch and it works great in the iPad.

Shanghai Mahjong from MobileAge, if you don’t know, has been around forever. The iPhone version, if I’m not mistaken, was available on the App Store at the launch in July, 2008. The app has been updated and improved many times since then. When the iPad came around, they updated the app again to make it a Universal app — meaning that the same app is optimized for the iPhone and the iPad. A very customer friendly decision.

This mahjong game has over 200 different layouts to choose from, bunches of tile sets, and as many backgrounds as you wish as you can import them from your device Photos.

Quite honestly, if you enjoy the game of Mahjong even a little bit, you’d be nuts not to buy this game today while it’s on sale for $0.99. It’s the best mahjong available for the iPad or the iPhone and you get both versions in one purchase for less than a buck. No in-app purchase, nothing, it’s all there for $0.99.
