This is just a short update to inform that Wordfeud v1.0.8 has been published to the Android Market.
Since Wordfeud was launched I’ve been getting lots and lots of emails asking if there was a way to get rid of the in game ads. As of today you can make a small donation by PayPal to support further development of Wordfeud. In return the ads will be removed from your game. To make a donation, go to this page and enter your Wordfeud username or email address.
Another frequent request is increasing the turn time limit. It’s now been set to 72 hours (up from 48). I know that not everyone will be happy with this change, as I’ve also gotten quite a few requests to lower the time limit. Often this is because people get stuck with players who abandon the game, and if this happens a lot then the 20 game slots may get filled up with mostly inactive games. To combat this, you can now have up to 30 games going at once. I’m considering making the turn time limit configurable in a future update, or at least introduce a “blitz” mode with a shorter limit.
In addition to the above, v1.0.8 adds email invites (to friends from your contact list who haven’t played Wordfeud before), gets rid of the per game chat message limit, and adds a few minor bug fixes here and there.
