Now this very well could be just speculation but it seems Game Center is really acting up today. Folks are blaming the new HOT word game LETTERPRESS – Letterpress is a fairly new word game for iOS devices. It relies on Game Center’s connectivity that allows you to play against your friends, sending notifications as to whose turn is next while tracking leading scores. Letterpress may very well not be the only culprit in Game Center’s bugginess, but it’s certainly the focal point for some of Twitter’s most vocal gaming crowd.
iOS players have been taking to Twitter to voice concerns about Game Center breaking when attempting to play games, specifically Letterpress.
One player ever voiced his opinion on the apps official page.
I’ve been playing around with Letterpress and Game Center today, and while I haven’t seen any error messages or crashes, I have experienced some lag between notifications for friend requests, turns (though not always), etc. Let me know if you’ve been experiencing anything similar.
