App description: Hello there, if you like taking three letters and making them into a word that is more than three letters then I have exciting news for you!

WRD PLY is that thing!

Only recently understood by science, WRD PLY is word game where you need to think of words that contain key letters in order. For example: you are given the letters E L T. You might expand that into "mELT" or "EmuLaTe" or "ELevaTion".

WRD PLY has an awesome soundtrack that merges your typing with the music! Mute it if you want to listen to iTunes instead or if you are "multitasking" in a board meeting! Get a bunch of words in a row to start racking up streak bonuses and win extra time!

Unlock the ancient mysteries of the ALPHABONUS, as prophesied many centuries ago in the occult classic "Wyrds & Ye Winning of Pointes."

This certainly has potential. It's quite challenging if you get tricky letters and you need a strong vocabulary to succeed.

That being said, I think it needs a bit more variety. Perhaps there could be different timed modes or even an untimed mode, perhaps some other surprises to keep things fresh. A daily level where everyone competes the same letters could be fun.

I'm tempted to purchase the IAP for no ads (I did not like that it played an ad before I begun my first ever game -- that was a bit off-putting -- an ad at the end of it would've been fine) and you HAVE to add the ability to pause the game. Pulling up settings during the game I hoped would pause the timer, but its countdown continued.

Anyway, hope this is a success for you and more people check it out.
