Many Uses for the App

The app actually offers you a few uses. You can enter in your seven tiles and then read a list of words you can use or you can use the app as a dictionary to see if the word you want to use exists and is spelled correctly.

Best iphone and ipad apps

This app will be expanding your vocabulary while building your word scores. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert when it comes to Scrabble, you can make use of this app.

In total the app contains almost 180,000 words in its database, which means there are a whole lot of selections available to you. What's handy is that you don't even need an Internet connection to use the app, which gives you complete mobility.

Additional Features

While the main purpose of the app is to offer you word suggestions and act as a word checker, there are also other features here. The app is able to keep track of your games.

What this means is that you can enter in the words your friends are playing, plus your tiles, so that as the game is happening you're getting a list of words as you go.

It takes into account the word your opponent has just played and then changes up what it will offer you as suggestions.

The word search function is very fast but be warned that it's not going to come back with just a couple of words, it will be many, sometimes thousands. Obviously you're not going to sit there and scroll through them all so that many feels a bit unnecessary.

The app can also come in handy for other word building games such as Boggle, Words with Friends, Literati, Wordfeud, anagrams, and crossword puzzles. In general I find the app extremely easy to use and I think that this can really improve your gameplay in a huge way.

Scrabble tool app runs on devices with iOS 8.0 or later with support of up to iOS 14.0 and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It will need 60.3 MB of free memory space on your mobile device to download and install.
