Needs better control


A reasonably fun and challenging word game different enough to make it interesting. The controls are too unforgiving for a game where speed is the only object, though. For example, often when I'm trying to grab and move a tile, the game decides that I'm really trying to scroll the playing surface. There should be a way to keep the screen from scrolling so that you can concentrate on moving the tiles.
Also if I pick up a tile, move it 5 inches across the screen and drop it next to another tile, unless I drop it with some precision (difficult to do when your goal is speed), the game gets confused. Did I want to drop it to the right of the target tile or above the target tile? Instead of simply choosing one, the game jumps the tile I was moving 5 inches back across the screen to the place I picked it up from (absolutely the last place I want the tile to be). This lack of effective control gives the game a "cheaply made" feel and makes it frustrating to play for more than a few minutes.

Love the app ~ but ...


In your defense, I am playing on an iPhone 6. In moving around, which you have to do, groupings of words move and you are not notified until long after causing you to have to recreate the puzzle! It's very frustrating to say the least!

Great game!

I enjoy this game a lot! Please put the word, 'exceptional,' in your dictionary. I was so proud of myself until I got the message that it wasn't a word...
