Backwords Premium

By shadiradio

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Backwords Premium is free for a limited time in association with Download the Daily App Dreams App to find out about the other free apps on offer each day!

2009 O'Reilly winner for Best App for Parlor Games: "Good, clean family fun that requires a good ear and a limber tongue."

In O'Reilly's new book "Tapworthy" by Josh Clark.

Note: The free version is ad-supported, but has all features except managing categories and tweeting/facebook posting your recordings.

The point of Backwords is simple: take a phrase, reverse it, mimic how it sounds reversed, and reverse that to hear a (hilarious) version of the original phrase. Everyone has a unique backwards voice - you just have to try it! What may seem like an odd thing to do can provide endless good times for you and your friends, and guaranteed smiles.

Party Mode is where the action is. Gather a group of friends and pass the app around as you take turns creating phrases for each other to try and figure out. You can set the number of rounds, a time limit (for frantic fun), and Backwords will provide categories for you to keep the game rolling (the Premium version let's you create your own categories). Try it once with a group and you'll be hooked, laughing on the floor! Play every human for itself, or in teams!

Go here to listen to any Backwords you have saved before (from both Quick Record and Party Mode), rename them if you'd like, and email them as sound clips to your friends! In the premium version, you can post your recordings to the official Backwords Posterous blog, tweet your recordings, and post to your facebook account! Please note that we are not responsible for the content posted.

Create and manage your own categories for use in Party Mode. You can also turn on and off any categories in the list, including the built-in ones!

What's New in Version 1.3.2

Many bug fixes in the "My Backwords" section, including selection, playback, and sharing to Posterous, Twitter, and Facebook.
