Great game. Would be better if worked in landscape not just portrait! We dont all have rotatable devices...

Fun word game, the "versus everyone else" multiplayer is pretty cool.

Different Word Colors Great game! The only thing I would change is this: At the end of the game, when showing what words could have been made with the available letters, the words that WERE played should be a different color than the words that COULD HAVE been played. In other words, keep the POSSIBLE words red, but make the ACTUAL WORDS PLAYED white (or yellow, or some color other than red). Other than that, the game is perfect.

Will probably never know how anyone can score 130 in that amount of time! Very good game.

Addicting It's annoying that the game ends before the clock runs out. I'm playing and have 7-8 seconds left and it ends with the clock still going. Also, it doesn't recognize "ade" as a word!!

Button for shuffle, please. ** I can shuffle by shaking the phone, but by doing that my fingers lose their position on the word square and I end up losing time. ** You could also add a few theme options, where the user can select a color/background theme.
