Introducing Subwords; need beta testers to improve VoiceOver support

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hello everyone,

my name is Klemens, I'm a student and iOS developer from Austria. I'm writing this because I made a little game called Subwords. The game has one big flaw: It doesn't support VoiceOver at all. I'm trying to change that with an upcoming update, but I need your help. I need people that could try it out over TestFlight. I already worked with an awesome user from this community to get the basics going, but he did already have an understanding of how the game works before trying it out. I now need people who know next to nothing about the game to find out if the game and the menus are understandable.The game doesn't really have a tutorial, and I don't know if I should add one. And I also need to know how well the menus work in VoiceOver.

The only info I will provide is that the game is a mix between a puzzle and a trivia game. If you want to join, write me a mail at and I can add you.

Hello Klemens. I love games like this, so decided to avail myself of the opportunity to beta test this one for you. It seems pretty straight forward with Voiceover, however, I am unclear as to how one goes about keeping stars earned. I've played the vegetable level about 5 times now. Each time I finish, I've been hitting the retry button. I'm guessing I shouldn't do that if I want to progress, but see no option to save the puzzle. How does one move up, and keep stars?

When I try to install the game through TestFlight it says that the app is not currently available

Hi Chrystal,
Thanks for testing! The last version didn't communicate information about the stars very well. I changed that with the current version. Just out of completion: You can get a maximum of three stars in every level. Your best score is what will be saved. So if you got three stars once and then play again and get two stars, its still the three stars that are saved.


Hi Dave,

would you mind trying it again? It might have happened that you clicked on the link in the exact moment where I released the new version.
