For those who can't stop playing Bejeweled Blitz ( *cough* that would be me *cough*) PopCap has released an update to the iOS version of the game that was sorely needed and makes complete sense for iOS. Those opposed to Facebook should be very happy.
Bejeweled Blitz Universal mode contains the following features:
◊ Game Center Leaderboards: Bejeweled Blitz now supports Game Center. See how you stack up against other worldwide Bejeweled Blitz players by day, week or all-time.
◊ New and enhanced experience for players who don’t connect to Facebook: All Bejeweled Blitz players, whether they connect to Facebook or not, now have access to every Bejeweled Blitz feature, including Daily Spins, Rare Gems, multiple Boosts, and Stats. Non-connected players can even compete in weekly tournaments against their favorite PopCap® characters.
◊ Updated Daily Spin boasts all new sounds and FX. Swipe the lever to test your luck!
