An update has been released for Word Frenzy Free in order to resolve the black screen issue. As a result, an additional permission has been added to all the app to write temp files to external storage. If anyone is still having problems after this update, please let us know!
Just wanted to update everyone about what is happening at Greenrift Software. We are currently wrapping up development on “Happy Family”. This is an Android port of the popular iPhone/iPad app from Mobile Parent Inc. It offers a unique way to promote positive behavior for your children. The Android port will have an updated interface and updated graphics. Look for this on the Android Market in the coming weeks.
Post Happy Family, we have several options in front of us. We currently have 2 new app ideas in the storyboard/early development phase, 1 “remake” in the works as well as 1 utility app in the “brainstorming” phase.
As things start to look more clear, we’ll put out updates as to what’s going to be released next. Stay tuned!
For those of you who are experiencing a “hanging on a black screen” problem after this most recent update, try the following to fix it:
From your device home screen, press the device “Menu” button then press “Settings”. In the settings menu, look for “Applications” and press it. Then press “Manage Applications”. In this screen, look for Word Frenzy Free and select it.
Once in the Word Frenzy Free screen, there should be a “Force stop” button. If it is active, press it. Give the game a whirl again and see if that fixes anything.
If the above doesn’t work, please contact us.
Word Frenzy (and Free) has been recently updated. Updates include game library updates, bug fixes, and modifications to the game dictionary. If anyone is experiencing problems with this update, please let us know!
Some people have reported issues with the game stopping on a black screen when it starts after this update. While we are still trying to reproduce this issue, some general things you can do to remedy this are as follows:
1) Go into your “Manage Applications” settings and “Force Stop” Word Frenzy
2) If that fails, it looks like an uninstall/reinstall of the app will clear things up.
We are still looking into this issue. Please be patient!
Just updated Word Mix. Update includes a new Spanish dictionary and updates to OpenFeint to fix some crashing issues.
Just released an update to Word Master that fixes sorting by score when blank letters are used as well as blank letter highlighting.
Just updated Word Master. Updates included a new experimental Spanish dictionary and a fix for scoring when blank letters are used. Check it out on the Market: http://goo.gl/MP6uT
Word Mix, Word Frenzy, and Word Master and all variants have been updated to fix the definition lookup. Word Mix has the added benefit of receiving a French dictionary.
NOTICE: It appears as if the definition look up in our apps is malfunctioning at the moment. We are looking into this problem and will get a fix in place as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you need a definition, put in your search bar: “define:” followed by the word you want. ie: define:malfunction
