WordWit edutainment app for iPhone

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Sometimes words can be confusing.   A new game can help.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   WordWit is a new game for the iPhone and iPad that is designed to teach you while you’re having fun.    It is from Ballpoint inc. where CEO Susan Leigh Babcock says….

“WordWit is pairs of confusing words.  There’s several levels, a plain written description of what the difference is between the words and maybe a mnemonic,  how to remember which it is.  And then we have quotes from literature that illustrate it in both a way that reveals its meaning and is entertaining and maybe makes you think of a book that you might have wanted to read.   And then we have a section called Master it and it gives you a chance to answer questions and gain points.”

WordWit is just the first of a line of fun and worthwhile apps from Ballpoint.  The price…a dollar 99.   You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
