Word Social is an addictive new game for the iPhone and iPad where you search for words in a grid of 4x4 random letters.

It's a social (i.e., party) because everybody who's online plays against each other! Everybody sees the same grid at the same time. At the end of each 2-minute game, you find out how well you did against your competition.

Word Social uses the Elo rating system to mathematically calculate a rating for you based on who you play and how well you do against them (i.e., if you win or lose). Compare ratings with your friends for bragging rights!

Word Social is made by the developer of tChess (the popular chess app) and Learn Chess (the Apple Staff Favorite e-book).

If you like boggle, you'll love this game! this version without ads is even better than the free version. Either way, you won't be disappointed. Tell your friends. This game needs to be more popular. It never crashes either!

Love This Word Game

Addicting word game. You can play competitively with others, or you can play as a guest to unwind or practice. The scoring is fair, and the graphics and colors are soothing. No crazy badges, blingy pop ups or musical sound effects, just boggle-like gameplay and fun.

Best Word Game!!!

I love this game. It's fun and fast paced. Never a dull moment. I don't know why there are not thousands of users. Tell everyone the name of this great game. It does not come up in some searches that it should.
