A Refreshing Change
This is a fun and quick app for the young looking to improve their vocabulary, the older folks wanting a little grey matter stimulus or just about anyone tired of the same old inane matching games. I've only been playing a few days so I've not given the noteworthy five star rating but that may change in time. Definitely worth spending two dollars on the old brain.
Upgraded my rating to five stars because it's truly worth it. Excellent way to spend a few hours rather than the usual cheap cartoon based inane drivel that most apps consist of. Enough said.
Game Center banners.
I only just started playing the game. The constant Game Center banners, telling me I got 7 in a row or ten in a row on the speed tests as I go, are incredibly distracting. I left the game to make sure that I had banners turned off for my Game Center notifications. But when I went back to the game they still dropped down. I went back and turned Game Center notifications completely off, quit and restarted the game, and they still dropped down. I don't understand why it needs to do that while I'm playing when it has the option to see achievements at the end of each round. Very annoying when I'm trying to do things speedily.
This is such a better use of my time compared to some tedious match the balls and rescue some fake animals game. So that being said, I wish that you could hear the word being pronounced and I also wish that there was a feature like you find on a Kindle where you can get a proper in depth definition of a word coupled with its use in a sentence, especially considering the fact that this is a Webster game!! When I purchased this game I assumed that "sound" was at least going to allow me to hear the word. I was wrong. Still, for what it is, $2 is a fair price.
