    Searched and found no dedicated thread, just a high scores thread and some comparison threads.

    $1 right now for a limited time.

    I hesitated in buying it because I have it for the DS. Anyone played it?

    I love the hell out of WordJong. I'm probably going to have to get my mother an ipod touch for mother's day because everytime I'm near her she's stealing my ipod to play it. I payed 3, and it was well worth it. Hell, I'd say it's worth closer to ten.

    Question

    I really, really, really don't need another word game. But at only US $0.99 I'm very tempted. So a question for anyone who already has this game: Is a wifi or internet connection required? i.e. for downloading the daily challanges
    In otherwords will I be able to play it if I'm running my iPhone in Airplane Mode?

    My thoughts exactly, but I couldn't resist the price and I know for sure this game is solid.

    Yes, I believe a connection is required. It doesn't do any downloading.

    Internet for the daily challenge but you also have 2008/2009 of game play backloged to go through for each day of those months and don't need a connection.

    I'm so buying this.

    I was only on the fence because I had so much else to play but this is unbelievable at .99 cents. An absolute steal! Developers really have to stop doing stuff like this. They are spoiling everyone. Even if it's only for a limited time, quality apps like this are worth way more than .99 cents.

    They're having a sale on the full version (this one) because they are releasing a Lite version.

    Thanks. So it seems it is a bit of both. Lots of offline content and daily online/downloadable challenges.


    Yeah, the iTunes description confused me too. Looks like I'll pick this one up and throw it on the pile of games awaiting my attention.

    I agree with mrWalrus. I'm so buying this. And devs (and the AppStore) are spoiling everyone with dirt cheap quality games.

    Does it really look just like the DS version in this video below (minus the Battle Mode)?

    If so, I'm getting it immediately!

    The idea of this game is so brilliant!! I remember when I used to play some mahjong game on the PC and it was so addictive. I'm purchasing the game right now and hopefully it'll live up to my expectation.

    .99 Oh man.. what a steal.

    And ya... the itunes description also confused the hell out of me.

    Words are on the bottom instead but it is very polished and think you would like it very much. Thats how confident I'am of this game.

    I usually don't like word games, but i absolutely love Wordjong - I thought it was worth the price at $5, so anyone on the fence should not hesitate to buy it for $1

    OMG! Just played one game from the daily challenge and I am in love with this game! This is definitely one of my top 5 games now. Replay Value is endless and it works your brain.

    I'm glad I bought this during this sale, 100% GREAT INVESTMENT.

    Don't even hesitate to waste .99 cents because this is totally worth it.

    Man I love this website and these forums for such great deals.
