Our eight year old son, Adam, loves tic tac toe. Whenever we’re at a restaurant, he likes to play while we’re waiting for our food. He also likes texting Diane and I from his iPod Touch.
When Apple announced apps were coming to Messages in iOS 10 at WWDC this year, I jokingly told Diane we should do a tic tac toe Messages game for Adam and call it Tic Tac Text. Adam was all for the idea, but I kind of forgot about it as I spent much of the summer finishing up My Reasons 3.0 and working on the next release of Home Inventory. A few weeks ago, Adam asked me if I was ever going to make the game, so I took a break from Home Inventory and built it for him.
