Seek ‘n Spell – A Real-Time GPS-Based Word Building Competition

Available In: App Store       Price: Coming Soon  

##ICON_NAME## Ok, I was going to wait to tell you guys about this app once I had a copy of it but, I find it very intriguing so I thought I would pass it along now! Seek ‘n Spell is a, “a real-time GPS-based word building competition.” Honestly, I have not seen an application quite like this one. The object of the game is to create words by collecting letters. The catch is the letters are located outdoors. You collect letters by finding the letters based on GPS location. Your iPhone’s screen displays where each letter is located and then you must run (or walk) to that location in order to obtain the letter. You want to collect letters that will create the longest word…think real life Scrabble. To get a true feel of the application you will want to check out the demo video below.

Seek ‘n Spell has been submitted to the App Store but is still waiting approval so, keep your eye out for it. For more info check out their website. Overall, this seems like a super fun game to play…especially with the weather getting warmer.

Developer Description

“To play Seek ‘n Spell, grab some friends and head outside to the nearest park or other large open space. Start up the game, and your phone will display a map of your location and place letters all around your playing field. Run around to collect the letters, and when your location matches the letter location, you pick up the tile. You can have 10 letters at a time, and the object of the game is to build as many words as you can. The more letters in your words, the more points you get, and the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.”
