Descrambler also can track complete games! Enter your opponents words as they are played, enter your tile rack, and presto - you can see ALL PLAYABLE WORDS for your turn! This is the ultimate word game learning tool... you can see hundreds, if not thousands of words on each turn!
Descrambler uses a standardized dictionary of almost 180,000 words, so if a word isn't in here, then you're out of luck as far as the game is concerned!

Descrambler also comes with a word check function where you can easily verify that a word really exists. This is great for settling disputes when your know-it-all partner invents crazy words and pretends they're real!
Descrambler also is a great tool for players of Words with Friends, Wordfeud, Boggle, Literati, Crossword Puzzles and all sorts of other word games. It can also be used to find Anagrams.

Makes scrabble fun to “cheat"
As other people have noticed, the only way to achieve play level above intermediate is to “cheat”. This is because the official scrabble dictionary is so unfair in that it uses MANY meaningless and archaic words while allowing some foreign words arbitrarily (“qi” is allowed but “zen” and “jew” are NOT). When I first re-discovered Scrabble after 40 years, I felt so inept and inferior. Then I discovered the weird and indispensable world of two-letter alleged words (again, arbitrary). So no matter how hard I sweated over anagrams, I just kept losing both to the computer and to random online opponents. Now, this kindly and well-written app has restored the fun of the word-chase and reassured me that it’s not me, it’s the Scrabble rules. This app is better than the two others I checked out. This one is indispensable.
I love this app!
I love this app! Unscramble your letters (including blank tiles) in order right by point value, with the option of adding additional tile (or two consecutive) into the search, simulating tiles already on the board. Also let's you check to see if combination of letters will be excepted as a word, and which games will except it.
How it could be better:
- some way you could import a game once it's already started and been going for a while.
- you're able to add an option to letters to simulate letters already on the board, but if you use both optional letters, the letters are treated as consecutive, limiting the results to words that include those letters back to back. It will be much more helpful if the results were limited in this way, especially when you want to add a word to the board and happen to cross or letters from two other words (i.e. the words would include two additional letters from the boards that are not consecutive).
Otherwise – totally amazing way to cheat and words with friends!!!
Good way to learn
Sure, this app can be used to cheat which can get old, or it can be used to learn to play scrabble better.
Enjoy the game, it doesn't matter if you win or lose, words with friends is just plain fun.
Use the app when the game goes dry and it needs to be branched out in order to continue the game.
Once you learn strategy on your own, you can feel prouder about your ability to conquer the board and then the game will never grow old.
