Here’s how it works: look up a word in the app. Go back to your busy life. Receive a notification of the word. Test your memory right from your Lock screen. That’s it!

Sixit

Looking for something a little less intense? Check out Sixit, a small narrative puzzle game where you have only SIX actions. You play Pep, a mammal of some sort, and you’re a newcomer to the village. There’s a sentient storm treating the townsfolk, and it’s up to you to save them.
