Version 1.4 Released!

Version 1.4 of Word Mix & Word Mix Lite has been released.

Updates include:

1) Two new dictionaries. A common words dictionary (loaded by default) and an advanced dictionary. See the application settings to change dictionaries.

2) With the added dictionaries there are now over 12000 levels of play!

3) A leader board is now available. See "High Scores" from the main menu. The leader board only keeps track of "Timed" games. "Puzzle" games are not tracked.

Unfortunately there were a few bugs introduced with this update. When you tap "End" on a puzzle game and select "End Level", the next level sometimes presents a "Game Over" when you come back to your game. Also there are some layout issues with the leader board. These issues will be addressed as soon as possible.

Thank you all for your continued support of Word Mix!


  1. Your software is perfect except in one way, which I got a refund for: I would like the option to use the game horizontally and use my keyboard to type in the possibilities. TextTwist from Yahoo does this, and you can test their version to see how the different keys work. Pressing the spacebar will mix up the letters, hitting backspace will remove the latest letter put in the "guessing" area, etc.

    I'm on a Droid. If you get this feature added in then I will definitely be buying it for keeps. Very nice work on it so far!

  2. Thanks for the feedback, Matt! I have every intention of implementing a horizontal interface and incorporating hardware keyboards. Seems like it always gets pushed to "the next release". I'll try to get it done for the next major update to the game, which should include some new buttons. In the meantime, why don't you give Word Mix Lite a try. It's free and has all the features of Word Mix, but is ad supported.


  3. Thanks for your super fast response time!

    The only other feature which I like about Text Twist on Yahoo is that they mix up the order of the answers -- they're not alphabetical, but random. I think some people would disagree with me, so maybe this could be an option - but I like the difficulty of not knowing which letter an unknown word is likely to start with.

    I'll definitely get Word Mix Lite and keep playing until your next updates. Thanks again for your work, I love this game! (hah)

  4. Matt,

    Just wanted you to be aware that version 1.5 of Word Mix (Lite) now has keyboard support.
