Dicewords and Dicewords-X have been sent to Apple for review.
There are two main changes – the new Demo screen is now available for VoiceOver users and a crash due to tapping the Declare button immediately after the Demo ended has been fixed.
Both apps should be fine with iOS 11, but if not I’ll post an update to address any issues.
Enjoy the update.
I’m currently updating and enhancing Identicode and will be working through Dicewords and Pink Plaques too to ensure full compatibility with iOS 10.
Watch this space for further updates.
Apple have now approved version 1.3 of Dicewords (and Dicewords-X) for sale. 🙂
PLEASE NOTE – Updating to V1.3 will lose any save game or puzzle in progress at the time the update was installed. This happens only once so hopefully it will be a very minor inconvenience.
The main change is that the Demo screen has been completely overhauled. We hope that this will be more straightforward and practical for new users to understand how a turn of Dicewords normally proceeds.
At present there is no VoiceOver support for the demo but that will be corrected in V1.4 which I hope will be available within the month.
I remain committed to supporting an enhancing all my apps as long as I reasonably can, though it’s possible that in future the support for older versions of iOS may be dropped.
I have sent the latest update of DiceWords to Apple but it seems to be stuck in an odd limbo-land! I will wait a few more days and if nothing changes I will have to make another update, send it to Apple for another try. I’ll keep you posted here and on Twitter (@blacktabletapps).
Apple now have three of my apps in their queue(s) to review. Due to some unplanned last minute changes to Dicewords and Dicewords-X I have not yet sent those two to Apple but I hope that will happen in the next few days, if not then next week.
Mostly all were running fine anyway but I’ve added a new sharing feature to Identicode, tidied up some screen reset issues in Bargain and enhanced Pink Plaques so that if you are running iOS 9 or later, it will use Apple’s new Safari view within the app to view any web pages which is more secure and convenient for you. Remember, that even if you are not using iOS 9 you can still view the same page in Safari by tapping ‘Safari’ in the top right of the screen.
I’ll post again when I have more news.
After the recently overhaul of my web site (thanks so much, Chris!) I’ve been able to give myself a more appropriate email address but this app and Dicewords have the old contact/support address built into them.
This app now been updated to use the correct email address and Dicewords will be updated as soon as I can.
Emails should be addressed to ‘stephen’ @ and the name of this site.
