Content & Layout

SCRABBLE Dictionary takes up under 20 MB of space on your iOS device but contains more than 100,000 playable words, ranging from two to eight-letter words that can be played. Alternative spellings are also included for those playing in Canada and other parts of the world.

All the content is based on the fourth edition of the best-selling book, The Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary.

The UI of this app comes in a user-friendly package, consisting of a five-icon menu at the bottom of the screen to enable easy navigation between sections.

The five sections include Dictionary, Recent, Favorites, Word Finder, and More. This is a generic layout but it clearly works in making the user experience that much simpler.

The most-used feature of this app would have to be the Word Finder section. Here you can discover all the words that can be constructed using the tiles you already have on your rack.

Tap on the letters you'd like to include and proceed to “Find Words." You will then receive a list of the various words for you to play, arranged in descending order of length.

You can even use voice search to find words, by giving this app access to your microphone. The voice search is powered by Dragon and works really well.

Add unique words to your favorites, keep track of the words you've searched in the Recent section, and much more. Furthermore, if you're using this app on an iPad, you can even use the Scrolling Index which enables you to browse the whole dictionary at once.

This app contains no advertisements, which certainly enhances the user experience even more, and contributes greatly towards justifying the price of this app.
