Poker Copilot and macOS High Sierra

Today, the latest version of macOS, called High Sierra, becomes publicly available.

Poker Copilot 6 works fully with High Sierra. You can safely upgrade your Mac and keep using Poker Copilot.

Note: if you are an early adopter, and you’ve been using a pre-release beta version of High Sierra, you’ll need to update to the general release. Otherwise you might find that Poker Copilot’s menus are missing. This is a problem that was affecting many apps with High Sierra beta versions. Apple have fixed this in the general release. In other words, if Poker Copilot’s menus are missing, check for any High Sierra updates and install them.


Poker Copilot 6 finally announced, six months after it was released!

We made Poker Copilot 6 available in February 2017; it’s now August 2017. We forgot to tell Poker Copilot 5 customers about Poker Copilot 6 until today. Nah, we didn’t completely forget. At first we didn’t tell people on purpose, and then we did forget.

I’ve learnt from releasing Poker Copilot 4 and 5 that there are always some nasty initial bugs that sneak through when we released a major new version. When many users all decide to upgrade to the new version at once, it can be a customer support nightmare trying to work out what those bugs are and who they’re affecting.

We quietly released Poker Copilot 6 in February, we made it the new default version new customers would download, and put up a page describing the great new features in Poker Copilot 6 for improving your poker game. Like our Bayesian probability in the HUD that tells you what a player is likely to do, rather than tell you what he did. And the best HUD popup panel you’ll find. And our hand filtering system that is a perfect combination of power and ease-of-use. Like 40 new statistics.

Even without telling our existing customers, some people found out about Poker Copilot 6 and upgraded. We did find some initial problems and one by one we found the cause of each problem and eliminated them.

Then we realised six months has passed, and we still hadn’t officially informed existing Poker Copilot 5 customers.

So, today Poker Copilot 5 customers, you can download Poker Copilot 6. It’s got way more stats, it uses less memory and disk space, it is faster, prettier, slicker and more stable, and easier to customise, and generally just a pleasure to use. Enjoy.

Oh, I almost forgot: Download Poker Copilot 6 from our home page.

Poker Copilot handles 3 millions hands of poker

I’ve gathered tons of hands from various customers that I use to test for certain problems. I seldom load all those hands at once, but today I did. The results: a whisker away from 3 millions hands and the our poker HUD kept working smoothly without any lag.

Got more than 3 million hands in your Poker Copilot database? Let us know!

Nice Poker Copilot Review

Poker Copilot is…

…an interesting alternative to the dominant Poker Tracker 4 and Hold’em Manager 2. Originally developed only for Mac, Poker Copilot is naturally less known than the popular PC-centric PT4 and HM2. Today all 3 programs support both platforms, but the “quick and light” approach typical for Apple’s products is still recognizable in Poker Copilot.

In terms of features, Poker Copilot is quite versatile and can give the other two giants a run for their money. It has all the core features of a modern poker tracker – from the rich statistics and data visualization, to the customization options for the HUD.

The reviewer concludes that “the main feature of Poker Copilot is simplicity” and that “Poker Copilot is overall a better deal”.

Poker Odds Calculator for Mac – for Free!

We’ve been selling PokerZebra, a poker odds calculator for Mac in the Mac app store. We’ve now made PokerZebra free for all Mac users.

You can get our free Mac poker odds calculator here.

PokerZebra is similar to Poker Stove, a popular, free poker odds calculator for Windows.

Like PokerStove, PokerZebra handles preflop, flop, turn, and river calculations, it handles up to 10 players, and it lets you calculate odds against a random hand, a specific hand, or a range of hands.


A customer compares Poker Copilot, Xeester, and Poker Tracker

We received a nice support ticket today. After describing a problem, the customer ended with this great note:
I am very very happy with Poker Copilot. Your database is very very quick, imports are a breeze, the HUD works flawless, your software is the only one versus Poker Tracker and Xeester that can manage duplicates the best, and creates no mistakes during imports.
Poker Copilot  finds and auto adds history folders by itself, imports, but without creating a mess in the database. The other trackers I tested could even hardly compete.
The use of the software is the easiest ever, the structure you have chosen is without comparison.
It’s not all praise:
The HUD could have a little update, as well as the replayer, all other software is slightly better in this regard.
We’re asking for his feedback on what’s missing from our HUD and replayer that our competitors have.
