Anyone else notice the increase in users on ..i'm a WP7 and wordament lately?
I got my WP7 April 2011 and I remember ..i'm a WP7 had a total of 30,000 users including devs. Now a year later it's a whopping 280,000!
And wordament when it started a few months ago was always around 100-200 players. Now it's hitting 700-800 players.
Anyone else think this shows massive growth for WP7?

I noticed that in Wordament - I was going to post on it too.
Also - I was #14 out of 734 on my last game.. Yeah baby!
also also - I cannot do as well in the Lumia 900 as I can on my Focus. The touch sensitivity is a little messed up on the 900. I have to go slower and much more deliberately on the 900. I really hope a firmware update is coming to fix that. I like everything else about the phone though.

Numbers are up on Wordament. I have not found a great use for ...I am WP7!...suggestions?
As far as touch sensitivity, Wordament has gotten more touch sensitive on my Lumia after the current update. Previously it worked 100% fine. Now it is a bit touchy or just a little off.

I got my third top ten finish today!
The Radar screen isn't the biggest, so I fumble a lot, but I'm getting better. Somehow the live leaderboard makes the game more addictive than it would otherwise be.
I like the Daily Crossword app too.
I know that Wordament is looking to port to other platforms, but it would be nice if it continues as a WP exclusive for a while longer.

I don't even know any Spanish and I got first place the majority of the times. The funniest (and saddest) thing is that there were actually Mexicans playing.

Yeah, Wordament's number of players has definetely shot up just this past week, right around when they released the Xbox live update (and pretty much right after the Lumia 900 came out).
Unfortunately for everyone else, I still place top 10 in 90% of games I play.
I may shoot the Wordament devs a facebook message. They can tell where the growth is coming from, because a while back they mentioned a they got a good bump from releasing Wordament on Win8 preview.

It would be interesting to see where the growth is coming from. I suspect it is mainly the bump from the new Lumia/Titan II's as well as the move to XBOX Live status. I have tried wordament on Win 8 CP - it is not nearly as good as on a phone - the letters are too far apart which slows you down, and your eyes need to move too much to read the board.

My average score is about 415, which is nothing special but it gets me into the top 10% a lot of the time. I think I'd probably do better with a larger screen than the Radar's, but honestly the slowness is more in my brain than in my fingers. Sometimes, however, I do drag my finger over an extra letter, so it slows me down a bit.
I've seen any number of Boggle-type games on mobile phones, but it's the live leaderboard and stats that make Wordament so addictive.
You'll have to excuse my video game ignorance, but would playing Wordament on an Xbox entail using a handheld game controller, or is there some other input device? That would seem very slow.

Many games that I've played would have been utterly horrible without Xbox LIVE (Max and the Magic Marker, Fruit Ninja, etc.). A lot of them are simply too easy and XBOX Live frequently adds meaningful goals/objectives left out from the game.
Some examples of Achievements for Wordament are:
1) Theme Titan: Find all theme words
2) Bilingual: Play Wordament in a second language
XBOX Live Achievement points can also be attained through XBOX console games; but that's not relevant to many of us. Download the XBOX Live Extras app from the marketplace to attain XBOX Live features. I highly, highly recommend downloading it!

wordament is my new favorite game. really addicting. I've seen you up there Heron_Kusanagi. I pointed out your name to my wife because she has a friend on xbox live with "kusanagi" in it. My wordament performance is lame. i mean, I've got better than half, i'm climbing. i got in the 200s a couple time in some 1k+ games without the diagram games.
