Quick tip for more points: Change the dictionary to SOWPODS or TWOL06 in the settings panels as these dictionaries contain many more words!

Cheers!

Game looks and plays great, kept crashing after I changed to a different dictionary but worked fine on the default.

Thanks for the heads up! The SOWPODS is a massive dictionary, I tested on the 3GS and iPhone 4, but am on ebay for a 3G at the moment.

I'm hoping 1.1 should be ready to submit in the next week or so which will fix a few things!

Is there any word on the update?

I got the same crashing, but generally works ok after the initial change. I am also using a 4g touch.

Hi, the next update should be submitted to Apple within the next few days, then I plan for a subsequent update by the end of March!

All the best,
