Notable New iPad Apps: Letterpress – Word Game, from the Creator of Tweetie

Letterpress for iPad

Letterpress – Word Game is a brand new and fun looking word game for the iPad and iOS. Here’s its short, sweet pitch on its App Store page:

Find words, steal tiles, color the board! Letterpress is a fresh new word game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Play against your friends using Game Center! The perfect blend of fun and strategy.

The game is already getting some rave reviews, and it sounds like quite a good idea for those of us who enjoy word games. It’s also notable because its developer is Loren Brichter, the creator of the hugely popular Tweetie Twitter client app. Tweetie was eventually bought out by Twitter themsleves and Brichter worked on the official Twitter app for iOS and Mac. Brichter is responsible for some of the most popular iOS interface elements that are now used in many apps – including the pull-down to refresh gesture that is used in Apple’s own Mail app in iOS 6 and by the hugely popular Facebook app for iOS.

I haven’t had a chance to give the game a try just yet – but I’m sure I will this evening. Have any of you played it yet? If so, please tell us what you think of it in the comments.

Here’s an App Store link for Letterpress – Word Game; it’s a free app with one In-App purchase option labeled ‘Letterpress Upgrade’ for $0.99.

    • Hey that’s 2 words. :) Good to hear, I’ll definitely be giving it a look very soon.

  1. I might have to stop reading your posts in future. I’m not that excited about word games but I’ve done NOTHING since I downloaded this one, it is quite intriguing and not just about how many words you know.
    Thanks, I think, for the review

    • Ha, hope you don’t have to – but you probably won’t see this anyway if you’re too busy playing. :)
