Learning is fun!

Ok, you’ve probably heard that one before. And since the days of hearing it from your parents or your teacher for the first time you still don’t believe it. Well, believe it now. Say out loud: “Yes, I am a believer.” (No, not “Yes, we can”, that’s a different Baustelle, as we say in German.)

Back to the point: We started to integrate our first language game a couple of weeks ago, the oh so famous hangman game. Now, today we have take it up to the next level, allowing you to play it in all ten languages we currently offer. And NO, that’s not all. You even get a free new game called Scrambled Words on top. And NO, that’s still not all. It’s all available for FREE. And if you order now…. OK, that’s it. No more late night home shopping TV shows for me. Hope you enjoy it.

Finally: Dictionary search includes forum results

OK, this one has been on our wanted list for a long time. And not only on ours, as some users have suggested this feature to us a couple of times. Starting today every dictionary search also includes a search in the forum posts. Noone would do a separate forum search for a word anyway, so why not combine the two?

Oh, by the way, with the start of our tenth language a year after launch we decided to switch to English in our company blog. We figured that more people might want to read this blog (Really? Who said that?) but aren’t able to do so. And hopefully all of our five regular readers (yes, including you, Malte), will stay on board. We try to be as funny (or not funny) as we were in German.

Stay tuned, more features are going to be added to the dictionary soon. If you have any ideas, let us know.

Bug 366 closed. Over and out.
