Over the past couple of weeks I have been working hard on an iPhone app called ‘Two Letters.’ It is intended to be used by Scrabble players and crossword aficionados who want to learn and memorize two-letter words. If you are a Scrabble player, you know how important it is to master the two-letter words. My app allows you to play a game that helps you memorize those words.
I just finished the very time consuming process of submitting my first app to the App Store. Hopefully they won’t reject it! I’ll let you know when it’s finally available in the App Store…
Here are some screenshots of my new creation. The main view contains the game screen. You tap on the tiles up top to select two-letter words. After tapping two tiles whose letters form a valid word, it gets added to the list below.
As seen above, the most recently tapped tile is lifted up a bit. Also, the most recently selected word is highlighted orange in the word list. This makes it easy to find out the definition of a word you selected.
If you click on the info icon (bottom right corner) the UI flips over and reveals a full listing of every valid two-letter word. Some of them are quite strange; such as OD, which is ‘a hypothetical vital energy.’ But they’re all valid two-letter words nonetheless!
I learned a lot about iPhone programming while working on Two Letters. Plenty of material for upcoming blog posts. 😉
Have a great day!
