"WordSearch and become smarter"

Reviewed by / Jun 10, 2011

Play the game and try to get the maximum score

In this WordSearch app you are able to change the grid size, the word bank and the way of highlighting words: by tapping on the first and last or dragging all the letters without lifting the finger. The goal is to search for the words listed as quickly as you can.

This is a classic game to play, easy to learn and good for exercising your mind. Plus, it provides two input types modes, which can be useful if you prefer one over the other.

The one thing I'd add is that in the Dragging mode sometimes it doesn't highlight where you locate your finger and you need to repeat the action over and over again.

Brendan Dahl is the creator of Open WordSearch, as well as three other apps. This might not be the best WordSearch application, but it's quite good and easy to use.

    Although there are better apps out there this isn't terrible. Just got boring seeing the same words over and over again

    Seemingly endless amount of puzzles which is great but unfortunately the game is not made for a screen this size. It seriously takes me about 8 tries to get a word because I hit a letter and it selects the letter two away from the one I hit spot on.
