The Scrabble app delivers the all the fun of scrabble straight to your mobile device. Each player takes turns creating words and strategically uses board tiles to get as many points as possible. It's a game that has been around forever and while this version is not without its flaws, expect to have a good time playing it.
All of the Scrabble basics are here and the gameplay experience is smooth. The ability to compete with anyone is nice, and the speed game adds a level of healthy anxiety to the fun. There's also a built-in dictionary and in-game teacher to help you hone your skills.
The ads are very intrusive and pop up after each turn. This is in addition to the banner ad at the bottom. At one point the shuffle button would not respond to user input. Also when entering text into the chat function there seemed to be a delay before it appeared.
