Hey! Thanks for pointing it out.

By right it shouldn't pop up for iPads because its an iPhone app. Not sure why it didn't pop up in your initial search though. We tried it on our end and it showed up. So just hoping that it was one of those momentary iTunes glitches that we have become accustomed to. Haha.

Btw, I had your app installed for a long time now and only got down to playing it yesterday. I LOVE IT! I like the fact that it has that old school video game music. Quite different from the other apps out there.

Only problem I had was the sensitivity of the movement. Maybe give players the option of decreasing the sensitivity? Other than that it's great!

Not sure if you used your keyword searches purposely not on better or letter, but if you did, something is amiss.

We are almost there! Another day of testing and fixing minor issues and the update should be live on the App Store by next week! Can't wait for everyone to try it and start playing. Here's a (very) raw footage of one of our team members trying out the game! The bot is very cheeky, we must say.

And as usual, we come across waaaaay more bugs than we had expected. Online game play still needs to be perfected so I'm adding in another day to the timeline for the project. Let's just hope it doesn't take any longer!

It wasn't surprising that it's the nitty gritty stuff that kept causing the revamped app to crash. If I have learnt anything from all the projects till now is that mentally it's better to add a week to the timeline in mind for any major update or app release. Who agrees!

None of this matters once Letterlicious hits the store shelves.

GREAT NEWS! It has finally been done. The revamped version of BetterLetter has now been uploaded to the app store. If all goes well, we all should be playing, learning and enjoying ourselves next week!

Thanks to everyone who gave their input and tried to help the BetterLetter team out. Each idea brought us one step closer. Yet, this is just the beginning!

Ok, so while I impatiently wait for my app to be (hopefully) approved & be ready for sale, I have been looking around the forum for some nice & different apps. Came across this app called Ice Math Ninja: Zero

Quite interesting, I must say. Definitely a must if you have children (especially with the parental lock feature)! Once I started playing I got hooked as well because even though you can quickly do the math, it gets quite tricky to not touch the different numbers because of which you lose or you need to play real fast for some. Try it out here if you have the time

So we are planning to run a contest for people who play betterletter. In short, the person who submits the highest word prowess score wins (have a special prize in mind as well).

Make sure you participate! Won't be disappointed when we finally launch!

Also would appreciate any other interesting ideas for the contest

Good luck to everyone!
