Word Slide with New Dictionary

Very excited about the new patch to Word Slide & Find in the app store.

We used to use the built in dictionary that comes with iOS, but as of iOS6 that dictionary was REALLLLLYY SSSLLLLOOOOOWWWWW. It appears to be missing completely from iOS7, so we made our move.

The new version replaces the old dictionary with a new one, and as a result all versions of the game run fast now, as it was originally intended. I think this is the best game we make, and now it really is (again).

As a side note – that was the fastest review EVER!!!! Submitted on Tuesday approved and for sale by Thursday! Sweet!

So if you want to see what all the fuss is about download it right away, play it, and then see how the update is way better!

 

 

iOS 7 Preview

Even though we’re all super busy around here, it only made sense to try new iOS 7 update from Apple.

It’s the first time the UI changed in a long time and we’re excited to see how our apps fare. I’m just updated my development phone as I write this and so far I’m pretty psyched.

The UI really has changed since iOS6, with new animations for transitions and a clean new look. I especially like how my lock screen is uncluttered and has a flashlight and calculator built in !! The subtle changes tot he UI I notice are great. The emergency phone button has moved for example, although I must say some of the flat elements make it look a little… flat I guess. Personal taste I’m sure.

Look for some new stuff from us around the winter holidays, we’re knee deep in other awesome projects, but will be back with some new apps, including perhaps the greatest meeting app ever (for some sub-populations).

I’ll try and post again soon, but in the meantime I hope everyone enjoys this nice weather.
