'Verses' a poetry game just released for iPhone and iPad

Hey everyone here at touchArcade!

Just a quick announcement to tell everyone about my latest app called 'Verses' available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. http://tinyurl.com/versesApp
(it's free right now so pick it up!)

I apologize if this is not the correct place or method to post the announcement here on the forum.



Check out an HD video here: http://tinyurl.com/versesVideo

Here is a quick Description:

Ever wonder what it would be like to mash-up a Shakespeare poem with a Hip Hop Song? Verses is a new iPhone and iPad app that puts a fresh spin on a cherished classic: refrigerator magnet poetry. We built this app to set your creativity ablaze with Verses's limitless word mixing possibilities that allow you to become a kind of dictionary DJ. After creating a poem out of your own personal mix of dictionaries, you can send your creation to friends via email or publish it in your Facebook photo album! (network connectivity required)





Arranging words into your own poetry is much easier and smoother (and thus more enjoyable) using Verses, as opposed to the original "real life" fridge magnets. But even more enjoyable is the pleasure of sharing your poetic creations with friends. With the click of a button, you can publish your poem to Facebook (assuming you're logged in). Then ALL of your friends can see your creativity, not just the ones who happen to be in standing in front of your fridge (Facebook account and network connectivity required). Plus you can email your poetry directly to your friends, all without ever leaving the app. You can also save your poetry to your device's photo album.






Verses comes with 4 dictionaries, including:

•Old School Words
•New School Words
•'The' Dictionary
•If Ands Or Buts Dictionary

You can also buy premium dictionaries for an additional cost, which can add even more flavor and character to your poems. Premium dictionaries are available as optional in-app purchases and include:

•Hip-Hop Dictionary
•Beatnik Dictionary
•60's Dictionary 1
•60's Dictionary 2
•LOL-tionary
•Sci-Fi Dictionary
•Shakespeare Dictionary
•19th & 20th Century Dictionary

We've also added Achievements that will track your progress and keep a tally of your own personal "Poetry Score."

My LordVader,

The iPad version is dope, you'll dig it. I mean the iphone version is awesome too but jeez, there is just so much more real estate to play with.

It's pretty great, but you can't really have a lot on the screen when on an ipod touch. It's okay though, you still have enough space to mess around and have fun.

Currently Playing: Red Conquest, Battle for Wesnoth, and too many others.
