iOS Tip: Add friends to Game Center

Do you use Game Center? Do you know what it is?
Game Center is an Apple app that allows you to play multiplayer games on your iPhone and iPad with existing and new friends. Recently a large bunch of guys at work had to sit through a very long and laborious meeting about finances etc. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Well we had to make the time, so what better way to pass the time than fire up a game of Letterpress.

Letterpress is a fantastic brain game by the maker of Tweetie (for those of you around iOS for a while) and is a great way to pass the time and learn some new vocabulary words.

Well we had a few newbies to the team and they had never used the app, nor Game Center so we have to hook them up.Setting up and adding friends in Game Center really is an easy task, check out the how-to below.

Follow these step by step directions and you will be good to go!

Launch the Game Center app from iDevice.


In the bottom navigation menu, tap on the Friends tab.


Tap the plus sign in the upper left hand corner.


Here you can type in their Game Center ID if you know it or their email address.


Now tap the Send button in the upper right hand corner. The recipient will now receive a notification that you’ve requested to add them.

That’s all there is to it. Once the email is sent off to your new buddy, just be patient and then you can take them on, one on one in your favorite iOS games!

Does this help? If you need a buddy to play in Letterpress, hit me up in the comments below!
