Word Derby for iPad – Positive Grid JamUp Pro
If you like those friend word games then this new game by Chillingo will be right up your alley. It mixes the word games with horse racing!
Word Derby pits you against up to four people. Simply put – you are trying to get the best word scores to advance your horse to the finish line. You place a wager on your race and start putting together words. As the race progresses you get experience points to use bombs and have the game figure out a word for you to use.
The first one to the finish line wins.
There are several modes including “Pass the iPad” mode where you can play against someone in the same room.
Word Derby is free with ads, .99 cents ad free. It’s available for all iOS devices. www.chillingo.com

Plug the guitar into the 1/4″ jack and headphones into the 1/8″ jack. Set up your pedals and amp then rock away.
The software works on all iOS devices and is only $19.99. Great for the practicing musician; but I do know a few that have been incorporating the iPad software into their performance rig…
