Word Search +

By Sarah Pierce

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Word Search + is word search plus trivia. Expand your vocabulary AND learn more about pop culture, food, books, sports, geography, history, films, art, science, and more!

All our word lists were made by a person (me--Sarah!), and not by a computer. It took a lot of time to come up with all 321 categories, but it was definitely worth it! I think you will find that our word lists are BY FAR the most interesting and fun.

There are lots of ways to personalize the game. You can choose your own background, font, and pen color, or even use one of your own photos as a background. Try hiding the word list for an extra challenge, or turn of the timer and really relax.

The words are hidden in a new and interesting way each time you play, so you can play your favorite categories as often as you want.

The free version comes with 21 categories, including a massive SAT Vocabulary category with more than 4000 words. 300 more categories are available to buy, and there are also two new free sample categories every day.

• Great exercise for your brain
• 300+ categories (21 are free)
• Two new "Daily Free" categories every day at 6 p.m.
• Five puzzle sizes on iPad, four on iPhone
• Customizable fonts, pen colors, backgrounds and more!
• Tracks your record times and averages
• Free SAT Vocabulary category with 4000+ words
• New hidden word list challenge mode (It's hard!)

What's New in Version 1.7

What's new:
- New rainbow pen mode!

Thanks so much to everyone who has sent me feedback! Your comments are so, so helpful, and I really appreciate when people take the time to send in bug reports and other ideas. If you notice any new issues please let me know. I hope you enjoy the update! -Sarah

Customer Reviews

Great game app

I always loved the word search puzzles as a child and this app takes it to a higher level. There are choices for everyone's interests and ones to help children learn, such as the state capitals, Presidents, etc. I have it on my iPhone and iPad, and the app on my iPad is a larger puzzle with a larger word list than the phone. The Extreme setting is challenging, especially when you're dealing with short words. It's also fun when you do song or title searches, such as the 'Beatles' or Fairy Tale categories. I especially like this game as I can relax with it while waiting for an appointment whether I have to wait 5 or 25 minutes, and even if I'm not finished with the game, it automatically pauses, and I can come back to it later right where I stopped at the same time setting and finish it up. Great app and great fun. ❤️❤️

Best Word Search thus far

After testing about ten variations of this age-old game via apps, I think this one stands out: the ads that pop up after a game is done are barely intrusive, the screen doesn't hurt my eyes, the choices between challenge levels range for various ages and levels of pleasure or intellect, the timer doesn't have to be on if you don't feel like racing the clock but just want to soak in all the different words and how they're spelled. Highly recommended. N.B. I bought puzzle packs 1, 2, and 3, wiping away the ads. The packs are inexpensive and totally worth the money. Complaints about repetitive words are laughable if you spend a few dollars and discover the many imaginative categories of puzzles this young lady has created.

Recommend It

Two new free puzzles daily. Have fun while increasing your skills in word recognition, pattern recognition, speed reading, trivia, and the like while racing the clock if you wish. Offers variety in customization, topics, degrees of difficulty (finding), degrees of difficulty (words), etc. My favorite feature is pressing/clicking on the items in the "search list" to lean more about the word. Can affordably block ads and buy new packs. Each pack has significant number of word search topic options.
