A few update suggestions...


When I consider an app to purchase, I look at when it was last updated to see if the developer is actively keeping things going. Of course, if the app works without problems, why update it. Word Lookup Pro, as of today's date, has not been updated since 2015... but it works very well!
I submitted a question to the developer and received a quick response. Question: Will Word Lookup Pro work in 64bit IOS 11 on an iPad Pro? Same day response: Yes, Word Lookup Pro is 64-bit compatible.
As a result of the quick positive response I purchased the Pro version!
Three things that I would still like to see in an app update:
1) The ability to search within an anagram for specific character combinations such as a T--T or A-E.
2) The ability to display the anagram in all caps like the Scrabble tiles.
3) The ability to reassign the point values to the letters and bonus' to match the point values on the tiles of the game I am playing.
A wonderful app! I have now actually been able to occasionally score higher than my spouse when we are both using the app on our iPads playing Scrabble.
Great app! I am now looking for an update to make it even better...

Saved me!


In WWF, I like to see what the best I can come up with, then I check word strength & try to see if I can figure out what the best I could have done would have been (though I'll still eventually submit my original best). But when I can't figure that out (especially when I can't even come close), it kills me. That's where this app comes to the rescue! I also find the word lists super helpful.

Plus, this app is great for when you have a word on the tip of your tongue & only remember how it starts or ends or a piece of it because of how you can search with the wilds!

So many ways to use this!


Love the things you can do with this. Use your imagination.. I’ve been using this for years, and the only thing I’d like is a few more words in the anagram finder. In the game, Whirly Word, for instance, they have more words than I can come up with many times. But it is a great way to learn. Also, I can only try for so long without getting too flustered. Even have friends help try. There used to be another app that did anagrams better. It quit.
