    I was playing Tristan Pinball yesterday and suddenly noticed that shake function simply won’t work on my iPad 2 anymore. When I’m trying to shake the device to nudge the virtual pinball machine nothing happens.

    I did some tests in Coin Drop! game (it requires a lot of shaking too) – again, nothing.

    In RealRacing HD accelerometer works absolutely fine. I can steer by tilting iPad. And iPad does recognize landscape and portrait mode.

    Tried to reset the device but problem is still there.

    Any tips?

    It's working ok on mine. It does take a pretty good shake; forward and back seem to be the most effective. It wasn't noticeable while the ball was in motion - I just trapped it with the flipper, or just left the ball sitting on e plunger.

    (I'm running the latest version, 1.1 released Jul. 1st)
