  • Poor Definitions; no updated vocabulary/data ctionary

    By banannamom
    Besides winning at Scrabble, I would like to improve my vocabulary. However, words are often defined by the same word you are asking about. This is particularly true when the word is a variation on another word and the original definition is never given. This is frustrating. Other times, definitions are simplistic and inane. Overall, I wish the “official” scrabble dictionary was a bit more comprehensive/sophisticated. I cannot load an updated Scrabble app on my iPad mini. I have three of them in n right now. The one I had lost the “best word” Character. I deleted that after four years and cannot reload it. No game has current word list. No viable help from EA. I’m sick about this software!
  • So, so disappointed...

    By tabfischer
    I thought this was a whole dictionary of scrabble words that I could look at and study but it’s more of a cheat. Wasted money.
  • Needs to be updated for XS Models

    By 3rdiguy
    This is a nice app but definitely needs to be updated for larger screen iPhones. App content looks unusually large like scaled up iPhone apps on an iPad.
  • Perfect for checking words while playing Scrabble

    By Susanacrofton
    This is the dictionary I use when I want to see if a word that has been played is indeed a word. I simply type it into the lookup bar and it tells me immediately if it’s a word or not. If it is, I can then easily go to it’s definition. Now that Merrimack Webster has put out a sixth edition I had to purchase the Kindle version. And it’s awful. It takes way too long to find a word. Please please please update this app soon. I paid $10 for the Kindle dictionary. I’d gladly pay you for the app which is so much more suited to my needs.
  • Bad display

    By Emmmaa25
    Cannot use it with the bad display. Very uncomfortable. Deleted it already and I don’t know why I cannot have my refund. It’s waste of money, don’t recommend it.
  • Not all TWL words are included

    By scrab55
    Kleenex is good in TWL but not here
  • Updated for IOS 11. Hooray

    By NewUser987654321
    Update: back to being a favorite app Old review: This used to be a well-used app, but it desperately needs to be updated
  • Please update for iOS 11

    By rickkulp
    I'll miss this app if it stops working when I upgrade in a few days. And rating will go to 0 stars.
  • No maintenance

    By mickydeenyc
    Been getting messages since iOS 9 that the app can slow down my phone and needed updating. The publisher has done nothing. As of iOS 10 I removed it from my iPhone. I would hope that at some point, Apple will take this down to protect future buyers.
  • UI/UX mistakes, lacking features

    By Sapere Aude
    As a former tournament player and current club player, I have had a lot of experience with different dictionary and study apps. There are a number of notable user interface and/or user experience mistakes in this app. The biggest being the use of an alpha-ordered soft keyboard instead of the far more common and, now, far more natural QWERTY layout. At times, "back" goes a step, or more, further back than you'd expect. Missing features list is too long to totally list, but a few things: pattern search, common word lists, study features, and on and on...
