    Very neat, I used to love these as a kid. These days though.. I'm not so sure I'd enjoy them as much. How about a YouTube showing the application in one of the puzzles? Not to solve it, but to see how the UI is and how smooth the game play is. Maybe the features of the application and what it can do.

    Great video, it showcases the features really well. I already have several games of this genre, but this looks to have some features the others don't have. Specifically zooming, and the ability to change the colour scheme.

    It is what we are most proud of. We are the only word find game to take advantage of the iPhone's features like zoom and rotate. As far as I know, we are also the only one to have puzzles across multiple screens. In an unzoomed form, our puzzles take up the following:

    Small - 1 screen (10 - 25 words)
    Medium - 4 screens (50 words)
    Large = 9 screens (100 words)
    Super - 16 screens (200 words)

    We hope you enjoy it!

    I agree with all. This is above the standard word search game genre with its zoom in mode and ability to play on multiple screens. Nice that the price dropped but definitely worth even the higher asking price to me, considering all the games it holds.

    Battery doesn't matter as unlike other word games, this one saves your exact progress on the puzzle so even if you find one word and leave, come back and that one word is still found and marked. You can have all 50 puzzles in process at once with none of them finished if so desired.

    And $2.99 is the regular price. It goes back up to that at midnight PST tonight.

    that's not exactly what I meant. Like if your in the plane for 3 or 4 hours, can you play that long or will the battery die quickly

    Well I can't give you an exact time, but I can tell you we tested it for hours on end and never noticed any real drain. I would love to hear how long it would take you but I am guessing a fairly long time as it is not very processor intensive.

    Just found I huge problem I will be having, the screen doesn't just go on landscape mode but it changes the whole 360 degrees when it's vertical, thats a huge problem when you are trying to play lying down in bed, I have cryptix and I had the same problem. I think you should keep it like safari, I think thats one of the reasons they didn't let it go the whole 360 degrees.

    Yeah, I noticed that too when I played the lite version while lying in bed last night! There are some apps where you can choose to lock the screen orientation. So perhaps the dev should consider offering this as an option in future updates?

    I really enjoyed the lite version and will now purchase the full version.

    I found it easy to use. Being able to zoom the screen was nice particularly when I got more tired (it helped save my poor sore eyes from too much strain). I was also very impressed by the puzzles themselves. There are a wide range of categories to choose from with some good words including some I was unfamilar with. The puzzles that use more than one screen are trickier than you might think and I can easily see how they would take longer to solve. I can see myself spending a fair bit of time on the largest puzzles.
