Work in Progress Preview
For the next version (1.3), I’ve been working on a feature I’ve wanted to introduce for a long time: the ability to review matches through mini-games. A while ago, I wrote a blog post about it to get the idea out and start collecting feedback. While the idea matured, I focused on some other parts of the app, and now have finally started implementing this. These are real screenshots from the developer app, and I’m very excited to get this finished and published soon 🥰
I am also working on an option to go through texts other people have written. That would give you some extra exposure to the language, and give another purpose to the texts being accumulated in our database. Plus, it would give players more opportunities to receive awards and corrections.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments 🥰
Latest from our blog
Have you heard of Toki Pona? The language with only 120 words?
The first time I encountered it was when I saw it in someone’s profile while playing Polygloss. Being very curious, I started searching about it and was immediately intrigued. It’s a minimalistic language inspired by Taoist principles. Even though it’s a conlang that was not designed for general communication, it has gathered a sizeable community since its creation and has thousands of speakers today! Why is that?
