  • Not up to date!

    By Don4035
    The latest Scrabble Dictionary book edition is #6. This app is #5, so it is not current. Some words in the Scrabble Dictionary book are not found in the app.
  • Good app

    By torbmainsplayheelys
    Fast and accurate + offline and it screws with Preston
  • Lack of definitions

    By पाट्टी #1
    This dictionary has the words but is horrible at providing the meaning. For example, for kicks, I typed the word “pet”. All I found was that this is a verb, and I meant “to caress with the hand”. So is “pet” not an animal kept as a companion? I abhor this dictionary. What a rip-off!!!
  • 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

    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

    Update: back to being a favorite app Old review: This used to be a well-used app, but it desperately needs to be updated
