Mr Word Junior challenges you to a word game with added personality.
Based on the wildly popular Mr Word, the Junior version is ideal for beginners, younger players or if English is not your first language, as it features a reduced dictionary of 20,000 words. The slightly smaller board size also makes it even easier to play as it is fully optimised for all iOS devices: iPhone 4/5, iPod Touch, iPad and iPad Mini.
Choose 1 player or 2 player modes, and enter your name to begin.
In 1 player mode, you are playing against Mr Word himself. Featuring Genuine People Personality, Mr Word will really give you a run for your money.
Mr Word will:
- match his game to your skill level
- choose words that a real human would choose, limited in this version to a 20,000 word vocabulary perfect for beginners and younger players
- respond to your move in seconds - great for rapid fire play
If you make Mr Word think for longer than a few seconds, you are doing really well!
Mr Word will even "spellcheck" your words as you lay them, so you know in advance whether the word you are playing is acceptable.
Also featuring the Define button - instantly brings up word definitions for all words played. In-built dictionary of 20,000 acceptable words, no network access required. Features definitions from Webster's Dictionary and Wiktionary.org so you can learn new words and their meanings every time you play.
Stuck for a word? Try the Help! button, a Mr Word Junior exclusive. Mr Word will help you by calculating the best possible word on your behalf. Be warned though, there is a limit of 3 helps per game.
In 2 player mode, your iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone or iPod Touch becomes a high quality table top board game. Both users can examine and manipulate their letters simultaneously, and the board rotates to face you when it's your turn.
Mr Word Junior is minimalist, highly playable and beautifully designed so you can rediscover the joy of word games.

Scrabble Junior - very limited!
This app has one thing over the only true scrabble game available in the App Store-it provides definitions of all words played by computer or human. It is visually appealing with its earth tones, but where are the options? There is no shuffle function, no leave the game temporarily to address play options (probably because there are NO options). There is no ability to transition to higher level Scrabble either. If you just want to put words on the board, it will do. I was disappointed.
