A fast-paced word game.
Changes for v1.0.1 (build 10) of Up Spell.
Tapping game links in apps like Twitter were not redirecting to the game properly, since some services rewrite links and open them in their own internal web view. With this update, it still might take an extra tap (or two) in some situations, but now there should be a click path to get to the game.
The screen no longer dims and locks while a player is watching the How-To in Extras.
A few lexicon updates to add words players reported as missing.
Happy Up Spelling!

Fun game but I think the duel feature can be improved
Right now I ask someone to duel, play, and then... nothing? I have to share my score again to compare? If I forget to share immediately after the game and switch to another app (messages, for example) the score goes away? I’d rather play solo for a bit and wait for that feature to be smoothed out.
The app is pretty bare bones and should allow one to review the very fast-paced game. It would be nice to be able to review the letters and the words formed from them after the fact. It would also be nice to be able to replay a game both before and after reviewing. It would also be nice to be able to play without a clock. And it would be nice to be able to see one’s scores, not merely the top score. I hope to see these areas improved in future updates, but encourage you to get the game as it is—it’s addicting.
It’s really a wonderfully addicting app. I have two suggestions for the developer (and these really are nits I’m picking):
1. It isn’t obvious or apparent when you are getting a double score for a word; maybe the background of the “board” could change color to denote this?
2. The high score isn’t shown anywhere, except when you get a score “close” to it.
Developer Response ,
Your high score is shown in Extras > Share. This might not be the most obvious place, but it does make it convenient for boasting to friends.
Maybe I'll add a more complete stats page in the future.
