(PRWeb UK) October 15, 2010
HG Apps Store today announces the launch of the leading word search app for the iPAD developed in partnership with Eye to Eye Media the leading publisher of puzzle books. The partnership combining great, creative content from Eye to Eye with the app development skills of HG Apps Store has resulted in this first partnership app being released and many more in the pipeline for the Apple iPAD and a range of smart phones over the coming months.
WordSeek is a fun and intuitive app available today from the iTunes App Store for iPAD, an iPhone version will be available soon. WordSeek is a free to download app with 20 word search puzzles that adapt themselves fantastically to the finger stroke selection of the Apple iPAD interface. Players need to find all the words in the grid by stroking the letters to identify the words. A word successfully uncovered is highlighted and the searcher is awarded with a success noise. Games are played against the clock increasing the element of competition and enabling players to try to beat their own best times. Once a puzzle is completed and all the words are found the clock stops and the players gets a round of applause. Once all the puzzles are completed users are able to download more in app packs from the iTunes App Store at prices ranging from 59p to £1.19. New in app packs will be offered on a regular basis to keep the fun going.
Word search puzzles are great for whiling away time while challenging your brain; they could help in the teaching of a new language increasing vocabulary and are good for improving your spelling. Great for the daily commute to work, filling time between meetings, entertaining the kids as well, WordSeek combines addictive fun with learning because it is so intuitive to use on the iPad.
Andrew Muir, CEO HG Apps Store says “it has been great working with the team at Eye to Eye Puzzles who have captured the market for puzzle books and are keen to extend their channels to market by exploring app development. The iPad lends itself beautifully to this type of solo entertainment. Not forgetting that word search puzzles are an excellent tool for education, either for children expanding their vocabulary and improving their spelling or for non English speakers to help them learn.”
Guy Haslam, Eye to Eye Puzzles' Managing Editor, says: "Our WordSeek app is the perfect way of translating what we do on the printed page onto the iPad. We have years of experience publishing successful puzzle magazines and we're confident that the puzzle-doer will like our easy-to-use wordsearch app. What's more, the paid-for packs at 59p and £1.19 are fantastic value, containing 60 and 150 different puzzles respectively – that's a better deal than even our magazine readers get!"
WordSeek is available now for download from the Apple iTunes App Store for your iPad, the first set of games are free and then there are upgrade packs available for a small fee.
