An international favorite! Lingo is back on the Game Show Network, and you can be the next contestant in the mobile game. Fans of the GSN game show can now play on-the-go. Whiz through word ladders and show spelling skills that would make a dictionary jealous! Take the top seat on the leaderboard and win prizes from GSN.
How to Play:
Fun and fast! Spell as many five-letter words as you can in the three-minute Main Round. While you’re at it, rack up bonus points that help you in the Lingo Round. It’s simple: you’re given the first letter, then you type like wild to solve the word. You’ll see hints pop-up – green squares tell you that you’ve got the right letter in the right position, and yellow circles mean you’ve got the right letter, but the wrong position. If you can’t solve a word, just pass on it and keep moving! See just how good your vocabulary is in the Main Round. Then, in the Lingo Round, you’ll get more chances to win bonus points based on the number of words you got correct in the Main Round. Yellow Lingo balls are wild, but be careful—watch out for the red ball. You can win up to 5,000 bonus points!

What's New in Version 1.2.0
Fun but aggravating!
I enjoy this game but get very frustrated with issues that have already been posted. First and foremost, the issue with constantly having to backspace to correct letters that are not chosen is by far the biggest inconvenience. I agree with the reviewers who suggest allowing letters be posted via landscape. Also, it is difficult to register with GSN through this game. One more suggestion would be like many free apps, I would much rather the letters that I choose to post automatically onto the next line instead of constantly having to retype the words over and over again on each line (so much time is wasted here with pressing letters and wrong letters coming up). I choose to play free games over this one.
A lot of wasted time!
I gave this game so many chances because it is actually fun to play, but it is ruined because 99% of the time is spent correcting typing errors on the keypad!! Some of the words are foolish, but I could give that pass if I didn't have to spend so much time correcting typing errors on the keypad! There is not much time given, but it wouldn't matter so much if most of the time wasn't spent correcting typing errors on the keypad! And the final lingo round is a waste of time, but not as much as the time wasted correcting typing errors on the keypad!!
I used to love Lingo
Some of the words are a bit difficult and the fact that some honest to goodness real words come up as incorrect, something needs to be fixed. I also seem to have a never ending issue with typing the incorrect letters. So the keyboard layout needs to change. My only other HUGE concern is the stupid music!! You need to provide a mute option or at least a volume option that doesn't include me turning the volume on my phone down every time I want to play this game!!
