Continuing Problem with Navigation and Lack of Games

I have had a problem with this game for several years. It bothers me so much that I quit playing it until I forget what was wrong. When I start again, I quickly remember. I can't find a link to get in touch with the developers, so this will have to do.

After I play a game, three buttons show up: menu, repeat, and next level. When I first played the game, all three buttons worked. Now the only one that works is "menu." I have kept the game updated, so I'm not working off an old version. It's a very slow way to play, and I would have finished all of the games by now. Instead, It's so annoying, I hate playing it and will quit after playing 1 or 2 games. I have played it on both the iPhone and the iPad and both devices behave the same.

The word associations that exist are pretty good. But it has a short useful life as an app. It's confusing why more of the games haven't been developed since I started playing about 3 years ago. That seems to be a recurring comment in the reviews, even though users love what there is to it. I paid for all of the "packs" soon after I downloaded it 3 years ago, and none have been added. Surely these aren't the only word associations that exist. Maybe the only thing being updated relate to how the old app works.

Good, but glitch at end spoils the game

I love playing this game and appreciate the mental challenge. However, the game has become frustrating because it requires many taps for the second choice of the last pair to register. This problem remains after the most recent update.

Nice game!

I am really enjoying this game. It gives me enough of a challenge but does not require so much effort as other games if you get stuck. I highly recommend it!
