Mobile Future

4 January 2010
We've been receiving a lot of interest about whether a Scrabulizer mobile application will be made available, in particular for the iPhone. The answer is that we're working on it.

We want to give you something that you'll really enjoy using, and we know that nobody likes the often tedious task of entering letters into the board. That is why we gave you the Firefox plugin. So for the iPhone we're doing something a bit special. We have created a technology to read a Scrabble board from a camera, similar to how cameras read vehicle registration plates. The idea is that you'll be able to enter your Scrabble board simply by taking a photo of it using the phone's built-in camera.

We've now started to build an iPhone application around this technology, and the good news is that it has been designed to work on almost any phone, so we hope to eventually release versions for other phones too.

It's too early to be able to suggest when it may be available, but we'll likely run beta testing prior to public release. If you're interested in updates, or being a beta tester then keep an eye on our new Twitter feed for previews and early news.

I am particularly interested in seeing this available for Windows Mobile. Looking forward to see the progress made in this new platform.

I would love to beta test this! Another good idea would be able to select a picture from the camera roll. You could take a picture in the words with friends app using the screenshot buttons (home and lock key at the same time). Then select that picture from your camera roll. The only down side to either of these ideas is that you'll wind up taking a lot of photos and there is no way to delete more than one picture from the camera roll at the same time.

@mmbtrumpet press the 'share' button in the camera roll. Select what you want to remove & press delete. :)

You guys should start a sign-up page for this, so we can be notified when the app is ready and so you will have a ton of ppl buy it when it is released (I'd pay no more than $0.99 though, sorry, if it's more I'll just continue using the web page)

Please develop an app for Windows 7.5 - Mango.
I would pay more than 99 cents for it!
