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!)
- New rainbow pen mode!
- Problems with daily free not updating should be fixed
- Spelling of "Boeing" is fixed
- Fixed a bug that was causing blurry graphics on big iPhones
- Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the app to crash without internet access
- Fixed a bug that kept your device from sleeping after an ad is shown
- Fixed a bug that made daily free categories sometimes appear already checked off
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
Ratings and 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.
one of the better ones
this is a fantastic word search. you can change the difficulty... and although I've only played on easy, I love the easy difficulty. it's super casual and not frustrating at all.
while I know they have to make money... they sell "packs" of puzzles, and only give you 21 puzzles for free... you can keep replaying these puzzles, and the cool thing is, they will reroll the words to search for, and where they are placed. so it's BASICALLY a new puzzle every time... but still. I would prefer if there were as many free puzzles as there are payed ones.
the ads are rare and nonintrusive. maybe a 5 to 15 second ad (mutable) after playing 3 to 5 or so puzzles. not bad at all.
the look of it is super beautiful, I like the highlighter color choices, and the backgrounds are SUPER pretty. highlighting words is easy, and I love that about it, too.
could use a little menu layout design improvement. it's not terrible... menus are just a little clunky. however, the layout of the actual puzzles is pretty nice.
