Do you own an iPhone?  Do you like to play games on your iPhone?  Do you like to match wits against opponents?  If you answered “yes” to all three questions then you’ll love an App called Touch4 by FlipSide5, Inc.  Even though this app has been out for a while, the implementation on the iPhone is excellent.
Touch4 is easy to customize – Just click on the information button (denoted by an i) in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen and set your options.  First, choose the number of players and who you want to play against – you can play the computer, a friend or family member on your own network or an opponent on the internet.  Next, choose a name for yourself – you can use the default or type in a cool name of your choosing.  Then choose the level of complexity (beginner, intermediate and advanced) and the board size (Small, Medium or Large).  Finally, you can choose who will start the game.
Once you have completed the setup, you are ready to go.  You’ll see the Touch4 board and an arrow at the top (above one of the colored chips) will indicate which opponent goes first.  All you do is touch the column and your chip will drop to the bottom slot.  The goal is to get 4 of your colored chips in a row – diagonally, vertically or horizontally – while your opponent tries to do the same.
Touch4 is a lot of fun.  The more you play, the better you get at it and the harder it becomes especially when playing at the advanced level.  Touch4 is free in the App store though I recommend the $1.99 version for those of you who would prefer not to be interrupted by ads.
