Ratings and Reviews
UI/UX mistakes, lacking features
As a former tournament player and current club player, I have had a lot of experience with different dictionary and study apps.
There are a number of notable user interface and/or user experience mistakes in this app. The biggest being the use of an alpha-ordered soft keyboard instead of the far more common and, now, far more natural QWERTY layout. At times, "back" goes a step, or more, further back than you'd expect.
Missing features list is too long to totally list, but a few things: pattern search, common word lists, study features, and on and on...
The 'word finder' part of this app works well, and it takes maybe five minutes to get through its "unintuitive" learning curve. Perfect for Wordfeud, which I've been playing for several years. After getting Scrabble Players' Dictionary, I don't recall receiving a "PLEASE WRITE US A REVIEW" notice; this also is a plus.
I'm a tournament player and it's nice to have access to the tournament mode section where you can see all playable words.
Request: I would love to see a section (one for filtered mode and another for tournament mode) where you can only see the 5,000 new words. This would make it much easier for study purposes.
Great job with this!
