Better than nothing
It thinks that a V is worth 1 point and that you can have two zeds on your rack. It often forgets to add fifty points for a bingo, then at other times adds fifty when a word isn't even seven letters long. The list of allowed words in the training section differs from that on the checking section. These bugs aren't new - I have been using this app and finding the same bugs for three years. Still, the training feature is the best way I have found to improve my Scrabble, and the only way to have a quick minute or two of Scrabble. So it's an app that I recommend as I use it all the time. I just wish the publishers cared about it enough to fix the numerous and obvious bugs.
Slow and buggy
It takes a long time to start up, and very much longer than somewhat similar apps such as Leece. There are also bugs, as others have posted here, including mismatch in word list between this and the Scrabble app itself.
Still, the definitions are good to Ave, and the training is helpful.
Good but expensive
Nice app but bought on iPhone & disappointed to find I couldn't then load this on my iPad. Reluctant to pay £2.49 again for the same app on there.
