Word Searches Now on iPad/iPhone
A few weeks ago we launched the redesigned word-searches.org, which included numerous improvements – most importantly, the replacement of the previous Flash-based gameboard with a completely redesigned HTML5 board. This means the game no longer requires the Flash plugin to work – it also gives us the flexibility to start adding improvements not possible before, such as the option to turn off sounds (registered users can now click “Settings” to enabled/disable sounds).
One of the big benefits of the format change, however, is that the site now works great on both the iPhone and the iPad, as well as most other mobile and tablet devices. Give it a try! The site will look exactly the same in these devices until you get to the gameplay page – then you should see a fullscreen game board customized for your particular device. Swipe a finger over any word and it will work just as if you were using a mouse!
