Get STINKY SOCKS on the App Store! :)

Our new game, STINKY SOCKS, is now available on the App Store!

Sort laundry and match socks as they zip across the laundry line before the pile hits the ceiling! Don't mess up or you'll have to deal with crying babies, whining kids and a grumpy family! Help poor Fred deal with all this crazy laundry sorting mayhem by matching bonus items and magic socks with super-human reflexes!

Tried it briefly, kind of clever but I had some issues with the controls and it crashed on me at least once while posting my local score.

Thanks, will need to give it another spin so I can give you a more useful/detailed feedback.

I think one issue is that although I'd prefer to use the "tap-tap" interface, the currently selected clothing item isn't always super clear to me. Instead of just making them a little bigger could you maybe highlight them in some clear way (like a glowing outline).

Excellent idea!!! We'll see if we can get this into version 1.1! Please let us know your impressions and ideas after giving it another "spin"
