      What's the name of the app and how are they sold? Can we fellow hubbers help him out by writing a hub about his game? Just a thought...
      Congratulations!!

        Hey Izzy
        Thanks so much for your comments and thoughts.

        Apps are sold on the iphone website.  If you're into word games and feel like writing an article, feel free. 

        The game is called wooords - it's very much like those games we all (???) used to play on the frig with magnetic letters....rearranging them to make new words.  You can earn points and play with others.  Its a VERY cool spin on an old game to bring it into the new digital age.

        Appreciate your comments.

          I had a look and it looks great. Unfortunately I don't have an iphone or anything so modern, so can't actually try it out. I think someone else who is more hip than me should write a review because all I'd be doing to re-wording someone else's review which isn't really the way to do it.
          It's getting rave reviews by the way!

            Thanks Izzy.  Your thoughts are much appreciated.  I agree, you need to play it to understand what its about.

            Glad you like the look of the game.... and so do a great many others by the reviews.

    Congratulations to him! And to you - it is great being a proud mama (though my kids are so young that we crow over crayola drawings and not software creation)!

  3. travelespresso profile image79

    Thanks so much.

    Nothing wrong with getting excited about Crayola drawings - that's where all this creativity starts!

    travelespressoposted 7 years ago

    Thanks Rob.  I hope its a success too - he deserves it!   

    Getting it to market took up many many hours of his weekend along with foregone holidays to get it done so my fingers (and toes) are crossed for it to be a flier!

  6. travelespresso profile image79
    travelespressoposted 7 years ago

    Haha MMW - not at all sure about $$$ for me but I hope his efforts are rewarded from this word game.

    Thanks so much RedElf.  What I find so wonderful is their commitment and focus on doing something that is their passion!

    I could, and have, learned a lot from my kids.

      LOL EH.  You are very funny.....

      Now, I'm gonna have to seriously consider getting an iphone so I can play it!  It's VERY cool and has had great reviews.

        I will keep my kangaroo's legs crossed for you. smile
        If it got good reviews that is HUGE!

        I hope he replaces Bill Gates, Bill is more interested in spending it
        than making it now, he need more time for his charitable work.

        Tell your son it's time to step up and give poor old Bill a break!

          OK ... I'll tell you said.... lol.

          It's still early days for success as its only been on the market for about 10days now. 

          I appreciate your crossed kanga legs, I'll join you with crossed kiwi legs!

        Congrats to your kid for getting this done and on the market - so many try and fail to keep at it long enough - good on him !!

        Why don't you put the game name on here so that me (and others) can go take a look at it -  it would not be promotional of course, just helping the likes of me who have no idea of what an iphone is, let alone what a game would look like !

          Hello Recommend
          How are things in your part of the world?
          You are so right its taken a very long time to get it to market, then apple needed to approve it before allowing it on their site.  All of that's done now though.  So that's another reason why I'm very excited for him.

          I know you have NO idea what an iphone is - me neither - (lol) .... but just in case you do, its a word game and its called wooords.
