NEW! Now you can play Word Social for FREE with this ad-supported version!
Word Social is an addictive new game for the iPhone and iPad where you search for words in a grid of 4x4 random letters.
It's a social (i.e., party) because everybody who's online plays against each other! Everybody sees the same grid at the same time. At the end of each 2-minute game, you find out how well you did against your competition.
Word Social uses the Elo rating system to mathematically calculate a rating for you based on who you play and how well you do against them (i.e., if you win or lose). Compare ratings with your friends for bragging rights!
Word Social is made by the developer of tChess (the popular chess app) and Learn Chess (the Apple Staff Favorite e-book).
What's New in Version 1.0.3
- If the server doesn't receive your score in time, your rating is now reset to what it was before the game started (i.e., you aren't penalized for a slow network connection)
There is a version you pay for at £2:49. Don't buy it because it claims not to penalise you if your internet connection is slow and your score is not received on time. This is simply not true. You are penalised and it makes rubbish of the game if you are anywhere without a fast internet connection. I feel conned
