However you like to play SCRABBLE™, play it better than your opponent with the official SCRABBLE™ Words Checker and Solver.
Two problems, one major. First, the words it deems allowable do not tally with Scabble itself (try QIN) - allowable on WfS, but not in Scrabble itself. This makes the app almost worthless as is supposed to be the definitive guide to words that can be used in the game. Secondly, the 'train' facility is not at all user friendly. To be at all workable the user must be able to move the available tiles around to form various words as they can on the Scrabble rack itself. Otherwise, useless I am afraid unless you feel like getting a pad and pencil and writing the available letters down ... which, let's face it, is not really the idea, is it? Please get it sorted!
Money well spent
I love this app! No more fussing with dictionaries, and unlike other reviewers I have found the 'train' facility an excellent tool for sharpening my Scrabble ability. My 72-year-old mother took to it like a duck to water ... we'll never play Scrabble without it again!
A great App for what it is intended
This is a great App for what it is intended for , ie TO CHECK SCRABBLE WORDS . The negative ratings are only because the purchasers thought they were buying a game , if only they had taken the trouble to read the App description.
