I’ve just updated Double Quotes to v1.12. Only a few additions to the inbuilt dictionary this time around:

CHA CHIB NAS NON TICE TINK ZINE ZINES

I’ll update the 3-letter word list page accordingly.

The biggest change is that I’ve removed the in-app purchase and instead moved the app to a Tier 3 purchase, rather than being a free download.

Why did I do that?

Well I think it’s obvious at this point that Double Quotes isn’t for everyone. I’d guess that only 1 in 10 of those downloading the free game were actually playing more than a few moves. Which is frustrating for the rest of us. So I decided we’d all be better off if there was some kind of filter in place to weed out the disinterested. And so that filter is now the price tag. Hopefully now anyone new who starts a game will actually want to finish it.
