I read that this was meant to be fantastic, but to be honest it looks a bit cheap in the presentation. Collect stock photos of places around the world? Not really grabbing me...

What's the actual word game element like though?

It's quite fun, but it crashes every two minutes on my 5th gen iPod. Wouldn't expect a word game to be so demanding.

That's a real shame to hear - if you could email community@appynation.com with an idea of when it tends to happen we can look into a fix

Quite enjoying this. Gameplay revolves around solving anagrams to answer clues and fill in crosswords.

Most clues are fairly short, but there are also photo clues with a description of a city, landmark or animal. The crosswords are overlaid onto a map and these clues appear in the right place on the map, which is a nice touch.

The interface works well and there are timed and untimed modes. Some of the harder timed levels have pretty tough limits but they're doable.

Haven't managed to find a match yet for the multiplayer so can't comment on that.

I've played quite a chunk (500 words) and I have spotted only one spelling mistake so far: narcism instead of narcissism.

Love it BUT it CRASHES CONSTANTLY on my iPad Air. I've been playing it for about 25 minutes and it's already crashed about 15 times.

Real pity because this is a terrific game. Can you urgently fix this please? Looks like a huge memory leak to me.

Its crashing constantly on my ipad 5th generation. I'm hoping it gets fixed but I'm not holding my breath. I've done what the dev said and made sure no other programs were running and rebooted my ipad and have plenty of spade as I'm using a 128 gb ipad but it still keeps crashing.

Unless more people report this it may never get fixed.

Deleting it. Too many crashes make it unplayable. Was willing to buy stuff but doesn't look like this gets much support.

Haven't had any crash issues on 5S. I did email the devs about a bug I found and they replied very quickly, so hopefully other people's issues will be resolved too.
