Don't Fall For This Wordle Clone on the App Store

January 11, 2022

The fun word game Wordle has taken the internet by storm.

The real Wordle.

The real Wordle.

If you haven’t heard, the site offers the chance to guess a five-letter word by selecting a tile in the correct spot. You only have six tries. There is a new wordle each day.

Creator Josh Wardle has pledged that the fun game will remain without ads or any other charges.

But that hasn’t stopped shady iOS developers to offer their own take on the game.

One of the most egregious is Wordle – The App. From developer Zach Shakked, the game is charging a subscription fee of $30 per year for a “pro” version.

Shakked even took to Twitter to brag about the success of the clone. But he has recently made his Twitter account private after negative feedback.

There are also a number of other clones on the App Store. But just remember that there is no official Wordle iOS app.
