The app was released over a year ago yet it doesn't have any updates. It doesn't seem to be suffering in the customer rating however as it has 4.5 out of five stars. Users love how simple the controls are, how challenging the puzzles are, and the variety that is offered.

Features of the Game

The Word Swipe app can be played in a number of languages which is why you'll find so many online players. The games all keep track of your score, which then determines your ranking. You can customize the experience by picking your board size (this really is based on your skill level) and the theme of the game board (there are five in total). The animations are quite sleek and it’s got a much nicer feel than your typical word search book and pencil. The game controls are very user-friendly just swipe across the word to highlight it. You need to find all the words on the list to finish the level and your score is based on how fast you complete the list. Your score is always shown at the top of the screen and keep in mind you can pause the game if you need to.
