I’m seriously thinking of purchasing this game, soon.
I’m not the best at anagram games, and with the time limit, it might be a bit difficult.
As a result, I was wondering if someone could do a podcast on this game, that way, I could hear it in action?

I've never tried it, but according to the release notes of one of the updates, yes, you can use braille screen input.

I just downloaded it and played my first game. I sucked because my brain doesn't work all that fast, but it was fun, and it was so much easier with BSI. This'll be a great time-waster to go along with the Acdcessible Hangman game.

Not yet, but it sounds intriguing. I'm on a game roll this weekend so I might. I'm also searching for a second accessible hangman game so I'll have some variety. I downloaded one that someone recommended and found it frustrating, so I'm glad I have one that I can play.

Hi! Iave had Palabra Cadabra on my iPhone for quite a while, and, when I first played it, I admit that I was a bit frustrated because I'm not a fast typist on the onscreen iPhone keyboard. However, I can play this game so much faster now that we can use Braille Screen Input: including that as an input method for the words was an excellent idea. I'm enjoying playing all the games this developer has released so far, including the most recent one, Choose Your Face.

I agree with the previous post. Prior to using BSI, I used a Bluetooth keyboard to play. To clear something else up, Palabra Cadabra is Oriel's latest offering.

So, there was a strange bug I found yesterday. I was playing a few games ane I hit back space when I messed up, I could not submit my word, or rather I did but I could not type anymore with my Bluetooth keyboard even though I hit vo space on the edit field. The game froze for the duration of the time I had left, which sucked. Can anyone else reproduce. I hit enter as well by accident and the game also froze.
