What is it about?
Scrabble for iPhone and iPad is a modern adaptation of the classic board game with tons of cool extras and options for multiplayer games. This app simulate the look, feel, and even sound of the original Scrabble game, and has an interface that will put Scrabble-lovers right at home, including a virtual tile rack that lets you rearrange letters. In party play mode, players can use their iPhone and iPod Touch devices with the free Tile Rack app to play and manage letter tiles right on their device. What would Scrabble be without multiplayer? The Scrabble app gives you several options, including pass-and-play, games over wifi, and Facebook play that will let you play up to 25 different games with your Facebook friends. The game also includes a built-in dictionary.
Close to the game you remember. Look over your wooden tiles and do your best to use the bonuses on the board. What is different in this digital version is that you can use the dictionary to check your word. If you had tried that around the table as a kid, you would have been in trouble.
When you feel challenged. The game offers a few ways for you to escape the agony of losing. Exchange tiles if you cannot come up with any words or pass your turn if you must. If the game is really going that badly, you can resign. But of course, this should be a last result.
