Word Quest PLUS
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Are you disappointed by all the amateurish word search games in the app store, with their small unreadable and weak puzzles, awful user interfaces, childish silly graphics, and limited content and functionality? If you are, or want something better, try Word Quest!
Word Quest is a fun, polished word and number search puzzle with many twists on the classic genre. With innovative additions to the original concept, challenging features and layouts, and tons of content, it'll keep you motivated and playing game after game. And unlike other word search games, the puzzles adjust to your preferences to create just the right complexity with the intersections and coverage amounts you want. Word Quest is OpenFeint enabled with leader-boards, achievements and challenges (connect and play online against your friends), and is Wikipedia search capable.

+ CLASSIC +
This is the classic word search game. Your goal is to find a list of words on a random board of letters. Depending on the difficulty settings, words can appear in reverse order and can intersect each other. Your points are tracked but you have an unlimited amount of time to complete the puzzle.
+ RUSH +
This mode introduces the element of time. The game starts with a puzzle board like Classic, but you have a limited amount of time to finish, and finding words not only gives you points but subtracts time. There are bonus or penalty points in this mode based on how fast you finish and/or whether you run out of time.
+ SHIFT +
A twist on the Classic, the game board is longer than the screen. Only the visible words are listed, and the puzzle will automatically scroll as you find the words to reveal more. If you like Classic, but wish the game play were longer, this is your mode. As with Classic, your points are tracked but you don't have to worry about time.
+ ACTION +
This mode combines Rush and Shift. The game starts with a puzzle board similar to Shift, but you have a limited amount of time to finish, like in Rush. As an added challenge, the board will scroll automatically whether you found all the visible words or not. It's a race against space and time.
UPDATES ARE FREE TO BOTH THE APPLICATION AND PURCHASED THEMES.

Best Word Search App Available
I purchased about 6 different word search type apps and this was definitely the best of them. It's easy to use and customize. I would definitely recommend this app for anyone looking to do a word search, be it an easy one or an extremely hard one. Another cool thing is that the game has tons of words in each category so you don't run into that many duplicates and if you do, they are always in different spots.
My only requests to the app developer would be to have a way to comment to you directly to make suggestions or report bugs. The biggest suggestion I currently have is to please give an option to disable the automatic word hints (when you haven't found a word for 20 seconds or so and the starting letter of a word pops up - in my opinion this takes away some of the fun of the game as the whole point is to search for words, not get told where they are if you're challenging yourself with a tough word search and get stumped for a little bit)
Really a great app that is very well designed!
Great way to learn new words!!!!
I have always loved word search and crossword games. I can sit for hours at a time while my husband drives our Semi & just lose myself in these games.
Thanks for not making it a "hokey"'just for kids app, I really enjoy the harder games and I learn a lot at the same time. Keep up the good work!!!
Best word search
Really enjoy word search puzzles but the games I've played before on pads or tablets were hard to see and select. This game is easy to read, has great contrast and is easy to select words plus it is challenging and offers some interesting categories.
