What's New in Version 3.8.0
Hey SCRABBLE fans! We’ve made some behind-the-scenes changes to improve the overall gameplay. Update now and play against a computer or challenge friends with Speed Play. As always, thanks for playing.
Scrabble is a great game, you cannot take that away. However this game has many faults and is very misleading!
I started using the free version to see what it was like, and then I saw the option of playing in different languages; being a linguist I decided to bite the bullet and pay for the full version- what a very big mistake that was! They advertise that you can play in other languages but really you cannot, all it does is change the language on screen, you still have to make words in English...
Also, after your turn, the "Teacher" shows you what words you could have made, well 90% of these words are completely made up and random words nobody has ever heard of before. There has been occasions where I have typed the teachers word into the in-game dictionary and the outcome is that the word does not exist in the English dictionary. Very helpful!
Overall this app is actually really bad and very misleading. Stick to the free version for bit of fun or if you want to play competitively, resort to old fashion ways and bring out the actual game board!!
Pretty decent overall
For the most part a first rate ap. Sure I think the dictionary is too permissive (wouldn't it be better to use the official Scrabble dictionary?) and occasionally ignores legitimate words, but for the most part it works well. Using ELO rating is a big plus since they also seem to match you up with opponents of your same ability - after a few games this means almost all random opponents are a good challenge. This is very important IMO.
Seems to have a lot more trouble connecting without perfect wifi than almost any other ap I use regularly. Not sure why that would be. Also if you lose your connection it takes you away from your game instead of leaving you there to study the board. Sort those out and you get a 5th star.
The Best Game on the Planet
This has long been my favourite game but, in the past, the hassle was getting out the box, unfolding the board and putting the ivory tablets in the green bag and giving them a good shake. But how's this? It's on my iPhone and iPad I merely touch the app and I have instant Scrabble without the hassle. It is totally addictive and can be played either solo or with other opponents via its clever net connections. Great for train journeys or the dentists waiting room. Go for it. I think it's the best game on the planet.
