This elegant and intuitive app is much more than a cheat sheet – it helps you learn how to exploit the power of two and three-letter words to become a power player at Scrabble® or Words With Friends®.
Short Words effortlessly finds the single letters that fit before or after any given letter or two to make valid short words. Knowing these single-letter “hooks” can improve a player’s average score by as much as 50 points.
One press finds the current top-scoring word. And “rack mode” reveals all possible two and three letter words in your hand. Want to get rid of a specific letter or see what you can build from a letter already on the board? No problem: Short Words has a force-character option that lets you specify letters that must be in your play, plus wildcards.
Short Words is customizable, including options for full lists of allowable two and three letter words (with definitions) for both North American and UK play. It can be used as a study tool and as an in-game resource. Weaker players can use Short Words to even the playing field when they’re up against stronger players. And any player can use it to hone their game.
WARNING: The first time you play a word like “za” or “qi” (both of which appear in all dictionaries) your opponents may be outraged and appalled. Expect this outrage to continue until the first time they have the opportunity to play one of these words, after which you should have no more problems.
