Brag About Your Best Words in WordPop! for iPhone
Our Latest Press Release.
Smart Box Design today announced that WordPop! for iPhone now has a “Brag” feature allowing players to quickly and easily email their family, friends, and co-workers their longest and highest scoring words. WordPop! requires just the right combination of word-building strategy, skill, and luck. Now over 60,000 players of WordPop! and Diet WordPop! can have “Bragging Rights” when they make that great high scoring word. This free upgrade is available now for download on the App Store.
“With over 60,000 downloads of WordPop! and Diet WordPop! our players are very dedicated to the game and love to outdo each other. Now they can quickly brag about their latest word and impress their friends” says Todd A. Sherman, President, Smart Box Design, “Additionally, bragging motivates players to do better as they attempt to out score each other.”
WordPop! has a Best Words list and a global Best Words list located online, but until now, players could not readily show off their Best Words. The addition of a Brag button within the game and on the Best Words lists solves this. When Brag is selected, a formatted email with the latest and greatest best words appears. The player simply decides who they want to impress and then send the email on its way.
WordPop! requires just the right combination of word-building strategy, skill, and luck. The 6 x 6 game board is filled with randomly selected and placed letter tiles. The object of the game is to clear the board by creating words. As each word is formed, the tiles in the word are removed and the remaining tiles fall to fill in the gaps, creating new word possibilities. Players need to plan ahead in order to clear the board and move on to the next round. Since the letters are randomly selected and placed on the board, each round of the game is unique, providing unlimited gaming experience. As players gain confidence and experience their word building skill naturally increases.

Adding this feature was a ton of fun for us. We finally got a chance, while testing, to send each other our best or sometimes funny words.
I had the word Americans yesterday and game would not reconize it. I then looked it up in dictionary It was correct. There have been smaller words also not reconized such as Zion.
Thanks for playing our game!!
WordPop! and many word games follow the Scrabble rules of acceptable words. Proper nouns such as names, places, or words that start with a capitalization are not accepted. Zion and American are perfect examples. Most word games follow these rules because there are too many names and places to be found; we would never find them all. This is also the reason we do not accept abbreviations or acronyms.
One idea that the team has proposed is an index of all the words we do accept, that way you can check to see if the word exists before you spent the time manipulating the game board to make it.
On a side note, we are looking for input on a new game we are creating for the iPhone. If you are interested, please email me tsherman(at)smartboxdesign.com. Replace the (at) with an @ when you send the email.
