    Dear all,

    I'd like to invite word puzzle addicts to check out my new game, [app]LetterMeister[/app], released on the App Store today. )I'll also be posting a couple of codes on the code sharing forum.)

    I would welcome any feedback for future updates and have also set up a facebook page for that purpose.

    Enjoy!

    Neil

    I downloaded the game with one of your free codes. Thanks. It's a great game. My one complaint is the highlight colors that you use. I red green colorblind and I have a difficult time distinguishing between the 2 colors. A more saturated hue or using something in the blue family would be helpful. Thanks again.

    Colour recommendations?

    Hi, that's a really interesting point that I confess I hadn't considered. And obviously, colour selection is something that could easily be addressed in an update.

    Do you have any recommendations for which colours to use/avoid?

    Like I said, I'm red / green colorblind, which is the most common type. I can see both red and green, although I have difficulty telling them apart if they aren't really saturated colors. Blue is a color that I see very well. I think if your yellow and green were darker (more saturated) I could see them better.

    Some games that I play have a color blind mode where the items get a graphic or different shape so they are more distinguishable.

    There are some color blind apps out for the iPhone. I have one (currently not installed, so I don't know it's name) that will take a photo and process it so it appears to everyone as it would to some one with that particular color blindness. Something like this might help.

    I appreciate your willingness to address this. Thanks.

    App for processing photo

    Thanks for the info -- I'll have a look out for apps of the type you mention and do a bit of research. If by any chance you do manage to get the name of this one that you think is more realistic, then do post it -- I'd be interested in any recommendations! N

    It looks like the color vision camera that I have is "Chromatic Vision Simulator". It looks like it's free. I hope it helps.

    There is also a free app called Colored Eye. It seems to have a lot of really good info, including the best colors to be using.

    Had a look

    Many thanks for this -- I had a look at the app through CVS. Is one of the problems also that the red colour that indicates a wrong letter merges into the general (yellow) background of the squares?

    I have a hard time distinguishing which is which, I click a letter to see if I can move it, and go from there.

    Update with brighter colours

    I just wanted to mention that an update to the game is now in review and includes slightly brighter colours in the "normal" colour scheme, plus the option to choose a "vivid" colour scheme similar to that pictured above.

    In the meantime, for anybody else reading this thread, LetterMeister is currently free for a promotional period as I´m still trying to garner a few more reviews/ratings. So if anybody else would like to download and take a look, the more the merrier!!

    I'm pleased to say that the aforementioned update to LetterMeister has now been released to the App Store.

    Also, if anyone is reading this who hasn't downloaded the game -- the promotional period is still on, so why not grab a copy of the app and take advantage! :)
