I

I'm Done : Term used when creating a design in We Rule that actually means "I'm never really finished"

See Crystals, Diamonds, Flooz and Gems

T

Taeles : Keeper of entirely too many iOS games and usually a romphing happy panda. Easily wooed by cookies in any form
This rocks :  "To rock" is commonly used in slang to mean "It is very good" so "it rocks" could be equivalent to "it's awesome", or "it's cool" or something similar
Today's Signature : A regular and popular feature by SnowMani, as in "Today's signature is a sponsored announcement by...."

U

Universal : Term used to describe any game that is designed to run on both the ipad and iphone/ipod/imini. Developers who go this extra step to are nice people who deserve our love, support and cookies.
