[prMac.com] Bucharest, Romania - Independent iOS developer, Roland Leth today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of iWordJuggle 1.1, an important update to his word scrambling game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. There are many word scrambling games on the App Store, but this one has no time-limit, no word-left-counter, so you actually play the game, not a "lets see who can find this many words" and a new and unique play style. iWordJuggle caters to the casuals, while still providing a challenge to the more competitive players.
This update adds important landscape and 4.0 support, as well as various minor interface and performance tweaks.
Are you tired of all the restrictions usual word games have?
* Timers to put pressure on you
* Random words/letters you have absolutely no control over
* Showing you how many words are left to be found, turning the game's purpose into "who is able to find all these words" instead of "who can find the most words" Then read on ...
You are given a total of 15 words, from which you will choose three to play with. These will be your game words, to juggle their letters around and create as many new words as you can, so choose wisely. You can ask for a new set of 15 words if the current one isn't to your liking. But be careful! All three of your gaming words have to be chosen from the same set, so random wisely. You can random even after you chose your words, in case you change your mind, but you will obviously lose the words you chosen so far.
There is no time limit, no pressure, and no rush. If you got a few minutes to kill, take your phone out, find a few words, put it back in and continue whenever you feel like it. There is no remaining words counter, it's all up to you to decide if the number of words found and points gathered so far are enough and worthy to end the game and submit your score.
You want a quick game? An easy game? Challenging one? There's an option for each of your choices; you can select from a given set of choices how many letters will the random words have, each choice having it's own Leaderboard.
Features Game Center leaderboards for each category, 5 color themes and left-handed support.
Let the best Juggler win!
iWordJuggle offers a casual game to the spelling genre. Want a little brain exercise? iWordJuggle won't disappoint you. You could even goes as far as to say that if iWordJuggle was an X-Men it would be Wolverine.

"During this iWordJuggle review I liked this game as I didn't have the timer running out on me as I took my time to select the letters for my word(s). I also liked the fact there the background did not distract my eyes from the letters. This game was fun, entertaining but ensure you choose your words carefully."
