The Addictive Social Word Game iOS App – Can’t Say That!

If you like “Words with Friends” or other social word games for iPhone or iPad then you are going to love this iOS application “Can’t Say That!” developed by Fugazo –  I love Turn- taking, arcade type games like this and I’m already addicted to this one after a few days, its great fun.

Getting Started with Can’t Say That!

Fugazo have realised their error of only allowing you to play via Facebook and are currently working on allowing you to create an account via email, which I would much prefer. I do hate it when you are forced to sign in with your Facebook account.

However right now, when you first sign in to – Can’t Say That –  you are requested to sign in using Facebook, you do not need to have to post to Facebook at all, just change that option – and nothing goes through as far as I have seen.

You can chose to play with one of your friends or just someone random, random people pop up right away and so far they have been quick to play the game and no one messing around…yet !

How to play Can’t Say That!

You have to describe the given word of which you have three choices, – Easy, Medium, Hard – Actually, its technical set up is very similar to Draw Free or Drawsomething

When you have chosen your word  you are next sent to a page where you type your clues – here you are told the words you cannot use when you are describing the word.

For instance I had the word – Locomotive but I could not use the words Train, Engineer, Rail, Coal or Track in my description of 24 charactors.  Its a great twist as you do not know what the words are that you can’t say until you have chosen the word that you want to describe, just know that it will be the words that you were going to use! Hehe!

Guessing a word

You read your opponents description realising that the most obvious words they could not use. So think, what are they not saying. Then use the tiles to guess the word.

You can use a hint, ask what Category and ? which places a letter in the correct place for you.  If you really can’t get it, you can forfeit.

You can also buy new word packs with your winnings.

I have played this on both iPad and iPhone and both were smooth running with a great design.   There is a free and a paid version which I assume doesn’t have ads.

I’m glad I found this turn taking game, and I know that you will enjoy it too.

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 4.3 or later.

WorldCard Mobile – Business card reader.

Business card reader and scanner –  iPhone / iPad / iPod touch application.  

Also available for Android – see Penpower Technology website for details

WorldCard Mobile is an application that acts as a business card reader and a business card scanner for iPhone which was created by Penpower Technology Ltd.

This application allows  business card capturing and recognizing through 3GS iPhone. Meanwhile it automatically sorts recognized information by name, company, position, address, phone number, email address and other fields. Then it puts all of this information into your contacts automatically. Brilliant.

Simply, you take a photo of a business card with your iPhone, using the app by clicking camera.

 

Click recognize – the top blue button on the screen.

It then says done, and it is, you can then go to view the card or capture some more cards.

You can the find the card you have scanned either in Worldcards business cards section on just from your contacts.

On this page you scroll down to find more information, like the email address or whatever else was on the card.

I chose this business card to show you as it was the one that WorldCard has the most difficulty with.

The problem was a) the colour  and b) the funky font –  it would not reconise BONSAI, Danny Brown or read interactive marketing very well – the phone number and the address all came out perfectly but you would have to add the name on this occasion by clicking edit, not much of a problem and a very rare one.

When you have lots in your contacts list it looks like this, it uses the card as the photo, which is great if someone has their actual photo on the card.

Another cool option on this application is that at the bottom it has buttons  for Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn which it will search for when you click it from the name, which you can then save.

This is a great application for business people that get given a lot of business cards that end up in a draw at home, this way you just quickly take a photo, recognize it and forget about it, until you need to look up the persons number.
