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!
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.
Very poor dictionary component
This is more like a list of words without accurate or complete definitions. For $5 this was a rip-off. One would expect more from Miriam-Webster, so I am especially disillusioned. These folks have the information, so why not include thoughtful definitions of the words covered? The first two words I looked up had no definitions at all. Really unexpected and disappointing.
