    Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! In between all the fireworks and grilling I was able to put a ton of time in for apps, and came out with a HUGE update for Word Shuffle.

    If you dont know what Word Shuffle is, go check it out at:
    Word Shuffle | Word Scramble Game for Blackberry Storm

    Without further ado, here is the list of features in the new version:

    New Features:

    - 200 new levels
    No one needs to worry about repeats now that the number of levels nearly tripled! 200 new challenging levels were added, and the buggy levels have been removed.
    - Sounds are back
    As promised, I was able to fix the issues people were seeing, and brought sounds back. Your sound preference (on or off) is also saved.
    - Save your games
    You now have the option of saving your games at the end of each level
    - New High Score list
    A high score list was added keeping your 10 highest scores and levels
    - Even better use of the Storm
    Dont like swiping down to submit a word? Now use either of the convenience keys!
    - Bring back last entry
    You can now swipe up to bring back up the last word you entered

    Requested Fixes:

    - No more moving letters
    One of the biggest requests I had was to make the letters not move when you press them, and this allows for some blazing fast entries
    - Clock waits for you to continue
    No more losing seconds on the clock while the level loads
    - Guessed words show up in bold
    At the end of each level, words you guessed are shown in bold
    - Levels now can never repeat back to back
    I have put a special check in place to ensure that no levels are ever repeated directly
    - Removed penalty for shuffling letters
    Shuffle away!
    - Word lists are displayed vertically in columns instead of horizontally
    - Disabled guesses, shuffles and backspaces after level is over
    This fix removes the issues where letters would go to the next level and sometimes cause the game to hang
    - Progress bar now shows you your score for the level as well as required score at all times
    - Ignored word submissions less than 3 letters to avoid false penalties
    - Fixed off by one bug in progress bar

    As you can see, there are some big changes in there. I believe EVERYONES feedback was incorporated and thanks to your great ideas, this game is even better.

    If you already have the game, head on over to Mobihand and pick up the FREE update. If you dont have it yet, what are you waiting for?

    Check it out RIGHT NOW at Word Shuffle | Word Scramble Game for Blackberry Storm - Games BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Software Store.

    Thank you guys for your great support and I look forward to hearing your feedback on this update. Please rate it 5/5 if you like it!

    I am also looking for someone willing to make a YouTube video review in exchange for apps, let me know. If I find someone good at it, you can get all my prerelease apps to check out as well!

    Now I won't be able to get any work done! Seriously, though, good job. I like how either convenience key submits the word.

    I was playing this game earlier today and I was wondering when an update would be out as I had the same word three times in one game, and two of those times were back-to-back. Thanks for the update and your continued hard work!

    Hey Epic,
    I got a request, is it possible to add another game mode that isn't timed so you have as long as you want to get as many of the words and then you can give up to go to the next level? Sort of a free play.

    Sometimes I like to just see how many I can actually get.

    Level 30 and 4056. My boss is calling you everything but a can of paint (but he won't give me my phone back; he's addicted)!
