As everyone must know by now, I’ve been feeling under the weather for a few weeks. I’m a man, so I need to whine constantly and remind people of how crappy I feel, in a vain attempt to generate a little sympathy from anyone who hasn’t blocked me out by now. Yup, I get it. But this is freaky!
I opened up one of my Words With Friends (Scrabble for the iPhone) games today, and was blown away by what I saw! The letters that I have to use are at the bottom of the screen, and they’re totally random. There’s no way to manually manipulate those letters. [edited: It was pointed out to me that you CAN manually move the letters around by simply dragging them with your finger… I guess I never tried to do that before. Sorry…] You can shake the iPhone and the computer will “shuffle” them randomly, but there’s no way to manually move the letters around. I didn’t shuffle the letters at all. This is the way it looked as soon as I opened the game!
Now this isn’t the first time that there has been a word visible within the mix of letters, but this is by far the freakiest I’ve ever seen!
The picture was taken with another cellphone is is a little blurry, but you get the idea!
I haven’t been able to make a move in that game yet… it’s just too freaky, and I don’t want to ruin it!
