Win an iPad Mini - Feedback wanted for Acting Out!

tl;dr -- $329 iPad Mini up for grabs if you like and review our app on Facebook. Contest ends December 31st!

Hey, here's a chance to get something nice and shiny! Our app "Acting Out!" is having a soft launch for iPhone 5 users to gather data and tighten up some strings -- we're looking for some honest feedback so we can implement your suggestions for the hard launch in January. We've already made some major improvements in the code for the upcoming version, so tell us what you really think, point out what you like or don't like, and help make this a better product! In exchange, an iPad Mini is up for grabs (it will be the 16GB WiFi version in White and Silver)!


1) Download "Acting Out!"
Free: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/acting-out!-free/id551122924?ls=1&mt=8
Pro: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/acting-out!/id549880107?ls=1&mt=8)
2) "Like" our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ActingOutApp)
3) Leave constructive feedback ** this part is really important!! ** We're really looking for things you'd like improved or changed or added, and not necessarily pats on the back (though you can add that too). If the feedback doesn't exceed 10 words, you're not eligible! Probably about half the entries so far have failed step #3, so your odds are pretty good right now!

The app is for iPhone 5 users for now, though it will work (but be less stable) on the 4 and 4S, iPad 2 and 3, and iPod Touch 5. We're aware of RAM issues that occur for older models, and that has already been addressed in the code changes we have for January, which will make it fully supported for the above models.

TA Thread for Acting Out!

How the game works:

You've got 60 seconds to act out the word, and if the person you're playing guesses it correctly, you'll both get coins (it's cooperative). The coins can be used toward buying sticks of dynamite to a) blow up words you don't like or b) get hints and clear out unused letters when you're guessing the word, and c) it can also be used to create your own custom word, so the number of words is pretty limitless.

There's IAPs if you want to buy more coins, and there will be over 30 achievements you can get.

There is a free version and a paid version. The paid version will start you off with 250 extra coins, hundreds more words (for a total of over 2,000 words), better resolution videos to record with, and my eternal gratitude for supporting an indie developer.

Here's the trailer for the app::

Thank you for helping out, and good luck!
