This project utilizes the EditText view to gather a 4 letter input from the user, using the input to simulate the game of Wordle. The user’s guesses gets displayed to a TexView by the click of the Sumbit Button, along with a 4 character string made of ‘X’ which denotes incorrect letters, ‘+’ which denotes correct letters in the wrong place, and ‘O’ which denotes correct letters in the right place.
