The Pin-fo Backstory:
As a proud pinball machine player and collector, whenever I was on the hunt for a new pinball machine, I found myself going through the same annoying steps over and over when I found a machine I liked:
1. Check out the info, pics, and reviews at the Internet Pinball Database (ipdb.org)
2. Go to youtube and watch videos of the game.
3. Go to Marco Specialties and other parts places and see if any parts are available for the game.
4. Go to bostonpinball.biz to check out what I can expect to pay for this game (and what I can sell my old game for)
Argh! The drudgery of this vicious circle of websites was enough to make even the most devoted pinhead a bit frustrated. And on a phone, fuggetabout it. So after I learned a smidge of Android programming, I knew what I had to do for the good of all pinball collectors: condense this info into an easy to use app.
Now go forth, collect, and don't forget to play.
