Word? lets you check one or more words against the SOWPODS or TWL word lists. Because the lists are built in, no data connection is needed.

Word? is designed as an ideal companion for Scrabble board game players. (Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the US and Canada, and Mattel elsewhere).

Word? can also display the acceptable 2- and 3-letter words in SOWPODS and TWL. And it can take you directly to definitions and more about valid words on the excellent (this does require a data connection).

Word? is simple, elegant and easy-to-use. It supports multi-tasking on iOS4+ and retina graphics on iPhone 4.

What's New in Version 1.1

* Adds word definition lookup on (requires data connection)
* Adds 3-letter word lists to existing 2-letter lists
* Updates icon, and includes retina graphics for iPhone 4
* Selected word list (SOWPODS/TWL) now clearer, with animated pointer

Customer Reviews

Very good

UPDATE: This app needs an update to include the CSW12 international word list (2012) that has replaced SOWPODS. CSW12 contains an additional 2,412 words.
To the previous reviewer: if you actually read the app's description, you'll see that it does exactly what it claims to; no more and no less. Word? features the SOWPODS and TWL word lists, together with a very helpful list of 2- and 3-letter words. At no point in the description does it claim to "unscramble letters" for you. If that is what you want, then look elsewhere; there are plenty of apps out there that will do exactly what you need.

Overall then, Word? is a great little app. If, like me, you are not interested in cheating when playing Wordfeud or other word games, but just want a simple word list to check words with, then you could do a lot worse than Word? The only improvement I can think of is that I wish it had portrait mode, but that is just me being lazy because I can't be bothered to rotate my iPhone when playing Wordfeud!

Word? really is simple, elegant and easy-to-use. Highly recommended if all you need is a word list. Look elsewhere for "cheat" apps that will tell you the best play with your set of letters and other bells and whistles.

Does exactly what it says

Works well, looks good.

Does not work!!!!

Absolute rubbish, does not even attempt to unscramble letters. The app only ever offers a generic series of two or three letter words. The first review of this app must have been left by the publisher.
