Your current favorite word game, Letterpress, has just been updated to version 1.2, and with the new edition comes the ability to see and share replays. That’s right, you can now show the world the crushing victory you just achieved. What’s really cool is that these replays are hosted outside of the game itself, in an HTML5 powered webpage.
MacStories has put together a bit of a look at how this is achieved, and it’s pretty fantastic that they can recreate the look and feel of the app in your browser window like that.
The updated version also gets a tweaked dictionary, alongside some more minor features:
- Share Replays! Now you can tweet, post, email or just hoard links to your games and show off yer skillz! (Requires iOS 6)
- CHRISTMAS is a proper noun. It’s not allowed. Bah humbug.
- Loads of little tweaks.
- Improved dictionary.
- Handle orientation changes on iPad better.
- Clarified the “prefix” rule in the How To Play. Apparently the word “prefix” means something different to programmers and grammar geeks! The rule is actually really simple; it has nothing to do with roots, stems, definitions, moon cycles, or Latin derivations. It boils down to: no words found at the beginning of a previously played word. Easy.
- People read these. Neat. If I were smart I’d monetize all over your eyeballs.
