Not Worth Your Time or Money
I downloaded the app Words, A Word Finder for Games version 1.10 by Hidden Elephant onto my iPhone 5c and then again about a year later onto my iPhone 6s Plus in order to help me when I play Scrabble. At first this app seemed great, however I found that it frequently locks up, (frequently is an understatement!!). It especially locks up when you tilt the screen, which is very hard to avoid unless you lock the screen. But why would I do that? The app should work with the tilt screen feature not against it. To make matters worse, the only way to fix it is to completely delete the app and then download it again, closing the app doesn't help because it doesn't delete its prior data. Needless to say, this app gets VERY ANNOYING, VERY QUICKLY. After putting up with this for almost a year, I finally decided to write a review in hopes they it will help someone else steer clear of this annoyance of an app. FYI, I stuck with it so long because I thought there wasn't anything better (which is so wrong) and I thought they would fix the bug in an update (which they never did). Now I am trying Word Look Up Pro 4.1 and so far it works great! So please, DO NOT DOWNLOAD the app WORD, a WORD FINDER FOR GAMES, unless you want a life of frustration.
One question I have about this app which I love; is using this app considered cheating? If so, I would feel really bad about all the games I've won because of the help I've had from finding the right word on it. I truly would like someone's opinion please. Not only do I use it to help with scrambling letters to help find the best word but I also use it to see if a word I thought of is valid. I must say though, that many words HE comes up with are not in Websters Dictionary. Makes me wonder if my opponent thinks I'm cheating when I enter a word that no one ever heard of.
I have been using this app for almost a year now. I love it. I find it easier to use than other products out there. Simple and effective. If I were to improve it I would add a dictionary function, which you could turn off or on in settings. Secondly, I would add a feature that would allow you to find words based on tiles already on the board, however, that would be more complicated and sort of spoil it. As it is now, it's worth it.
