LetterMeister for iPhone now includes German

Version 2.2 of LetterMeister, the multilingual word puzzle game for iPhone was released to the App Store earlier. This new version adds German to the list of languages, so that the game is now playable with English, Spanish, French or German vocabulary.

The game is free to download today. Don't miss out!

A key feature of LetterMeister is that the game is customisable to your desired language level. You can set the game difficulty from two points of view: firstly the level time, and secondly the vocabulary level. This means that vocabulary learners can use the EASY option and will generally be presented with levels that contain common, 'easy' words (generally the first few thousand words, depending on the language).

The German vocabulary was added to the game after testing with the beta version of the same LetterMeister word puzzle game for Windows, Linux and Mac OS. This desktop version currently includes Finnish, and new languages are expected to be added regularly to both iPhone and desktop versions. Feedback from language learners regarding the chosen levels of vocabulary is always appreciated.

The game integrates with the iOS Game Center, so that if you so wish, you can compare your progress with other players. The Game Center also sets you various "Achivements", such as completing a certain number of words with certain letters, thus adding a new dimension to the game.

If you do try out LetterMeister and enjoy it, please consider leaving a rating and review on the App Store. This will help other users to find the game and bring further suggestions and improvements for later versions.

Small bug fix to LetterMeister desktop version

Version 0.76b of LetterMeister was released earlier today. This latest update to the desktop version of the word puzzle game includes a bug fix that affects gameplay when using German vocabulary. Specifically, under some circumstances, marking of the "s sharp" character would not appear correctly; this issue is now fixed in the latest update.
