I’m mildly-to-moderately addicted to Letterfall. For those of you who are familiar with this free app, you share my pain. For those of you who don’t, it’s a make-a-word game. Random letters fall onto your screen, and you try to make words. Words with rare letters (“V”, “Q”) get you more points. Longer words get you more points. I got “qualify” recently and nearly passed out. I was smug for minutes.
Here’s my beef with Letterfall: The app doesn’t recognize REAL words! Real words like “Monday”, “Motown”, ‘June”, “google”. Come on, people. OK, maybe “google” isn’t in the OED. I’ll have to check. But Monday is definitely a word (and my least favourite day). June is definitely a month (a perfectly OK month). And place names are words too!
Is there a chat board where I can vent? Are others experiencing this same annoying problem? Letterfall – update your dictionary!!
