As I mentioned in my last post, yesterday, our new update to Wordament is nearly here (it is in the Marketplace certification process). One of the top features that we’ve added is the ability to see how you stack up against your competition over a longer time period than just “one game.” Our solution, of course, is leaderboards. We’ve had web-based leaderboards up for a while now, but we think having them on the phone is going to make them way more accessible. From our new Start screen, you will find a Leaderboards link that will jump you off to a page showing you one of four leaderboards:
- Best of right now
- Best of this hour
- Best of today (the last 24 hours)
- Best of all time
Each page will highlight your position, if you appear in the list (as shown highlighted for “scruff” in the second image). Also, notice that we are showing the country you are playing from—bringing a little more global competition into the fray.
Let us know what you think, when you get a chance to play with the build. We think the leaderboards are really great, and will encourage even more fun word battles to come!
