Super but for one tiny thing...

When I'm at home I like to play with my iPad plugged in to save battery life. This app has just one orientation - portrait blocking the power cord access at the bottom which won't allow me to prop the iPad onto a stand. I would rather it let me rotate the screen, or fix it to the opposite portrait orientation with the power button at the top so I can stay plugged in. Otherwise it's a wonderful game. If I'm not careful I can lose hours of my life without realizing it.


Yes, it's addictive and it's challenging and fun. Only problem is the ads, really. I paid to turn them off, but I got a new phone and I need a reminder to pay. I pay every time you ask, because it isn't that often and this has been my go to game for a long time, years. Couldn't you attach an invitation to play ad free to new downloads? Thanks for creating this game!

Could use improvements

Fun, challenging brain workout...however, the list of words needs to be updated. The bonus words are very obscure and some common words aren't considered words on here. Also some words ARE considered words on here that are odd like "QI, QUA, XI, XU" to name a few... slang words are not considered words on here nor are many proper names like of countries. Can be frustrating when you have a real word and it won't work.
Also when you clear the board, why isn't there a next level?
