Become a Scrabble Champion!
There are Scrabble players and then there are Scrabble PLAYERS. If you want to take your game from the kitchen table to the tournaments, or even if you want to start dominating your friends at Words With Friends, then it's time to increase your word knowledge. Equivoke is the only app on the market that's designed to help you learn all the 2, 3, 4 and 5 letter words, as well as the common letter combos that will help you make a bingo and send your opponent running in tears.
Look, there are a million apps out there to help you CHEAT at Scrabble. Isn't it time to actually get GOOD?
If you're a US player like me, then be sure to change the app's dictionary over to TWL in the Settings section of your device.
Great app. Definitely worth the $5 for the app and upgrades.
For serious scrabble study
This is a beautiful and well-designed tool for tournament scrabble players with a fluid UI. Includes both OWL and Collins dictionary options and in-game purchases that maximize utility. Works pure memorization more than anagramming skills, but a great supplement to flash card programs and excellent for mastering twos, threes and core bingos. The best dedicated scrabble training app in the App Store - should be in every IOS-using tournament player's device.
Great idea but.....
I really like this app. Especially for people who are interested in getting better at Scrabble and WWF instead of just cheating but I've found several words that I've learned from studying this app ARE NOT acceptable words in Scrabble or WWF. If the creator of this app could just pick a dictionary that's universally accepted in Scrabble and WWF then clean up the words that are not playable this would be a 5 star app without a doubt!!!
