What's New in Version 2.0.6
Updated for iOS 11.
Removed voice search.
Besides winning at Scrabble, I would like to improve my vocabulary. However, words are often defined by the same word you are asking about. This is particularly true when the word is a variation on another word and the original definition is never given. This is frustrating for me.
Other times, definitions are simplistic and inane. Overall, I wish the “official” scrabble dictionary was a bit more comprehensive/sophisticated.
Updated for IOS 11. Hooray
Update: back to being a favorite app
Old review: This used to be a well-used app, but it desperately needs to be updated
Not all TWL words are included
Kleenex is good in TWL but not here
