    Great list! Since this will eventually fall off the top of the front page, I’d recommend adding this to the Resources tab as a “Pinball Apps” listing, and add maybe another one for “Pinball online resources” to add IPDB,PAPA, etcetera to make the IFPA page a one-stop place to get to anywhere related to pinball.
