AlphaMetic app is a math problem of words, not to be confused with a word problem, so it is a math game consisting of an equation whose digits are represented by letters. The goal is to identify the numeric value of each letter. An AlphaMetic is sometimes called a cryptarithm, cryptogram, verbal arithmetic, cryptarithmetic, crypt-arithmetic or word addition. It's logical, it's fun, it's an AlphaMetic. The 2012 Holiday puzzles are available for $0.99.

Adobe Proto running on a Motorola Xoom with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system was used to mockup the low-fidelity phone wireframe versions of the Voice Dictionary interface to test the usability of including definition and image results.
The pseudo paper prototype links for the Voice Dictionary update will open in a new window/tab. The Adobe Proto generated HTML buttons are clickable but will not function as advertised in this electronic version of a paper prototype. For best results, view on a computer or tablet (not a phone).
Interaction instructions are displayed on each Voice Dictionary mock-up generated with Adobe Proto for demonstration purposes.
Possible feature add-on, Reverse AlphaMetic. Allows people to create their own AlphaMetic for a friend to solve, but the friend receives the math problem and must swap the numbers with letters to view the AlphaMetic message. A new persona and screen mockups were created.
