1.1 Update Notes:
Record your own words and make your own custom word lists!
- Experience the thrill of your words, and voice, in the game- Create a new list from scratch, or copy and edit one of the supplied lists- Add as many words, and lists, as you like
There’s just something about hearing your own voice, or your kid’s voice, or your dog’s voice, coming out of the game. And you can add as many words and lists, as useful and silly, as you like. We’ve always strived to make our apps flexible and customizable for a range of users and applications, but allowing the user to be personally involved in the functionality of an app is a really exciting twist on “interactivity.”
And that’s not all...we also sprinkled Word Town with lots of things to tap and discover because they're just plain fun.
