SCRABBLE Dictionary Comments & Reviews 2022

- Good dictionary for word games, but...

It’s great for all the combos you find in Scrabble, Boggle and other word games. However, in the last month the hyperlink to the more obscure words stopped working (website not found). Needs to be fixed. Also, when it did work, their site seemed infected with the occasional redirect to pirate sites. Perhaps this is related to that.

- Great app, a few minor suggestions

This really a wonderful app, but two small suggestions. First, most of the time I open this app, I go to word finder. It would be great if the app would either remember the last state, or if the default functionality (when the app opens) could be changed in the settings. Second, though the words are generally up to date I do occasionally come across legitimate words which are not included in the engine. The most recent one I can think of is velcro. I will grant you that this is also a trade name, but it also refers to a type of fabric fastener for which there is no other word. Forget the trade name. It has now entered the lexicon of day to day conversation... not as a verb, but as a noun. I think I also read that as of last year, it was now accepted as a word in scrabble, so why doesn’t the scrabble dictionary here include it?

- Perfect for checking words while playing Scrabble

This is the dictionary I use when I want to see if a word that has been played is indeed a word. I simply type it into the lookup bar and it tells me immediately if it’s a word or not. If it is, I can then easily go to it’s definition. Now that Merrimack Webster has put out a sixth edition I had to purchase the Kindle version. And it’s awful. It takes way too long to find a word. Please please please update this app soon. I paid $10 for the Kindle dictionary. I’d gladly pay you for the app which is so much more suited to my needs.

- UI/UX mistakes, lacking features

As a former tournament player and current club player, I have had a lot of experience with different dictionary and study apps. There are a number of notable user interface and/or user experience mistakes in this app. The biggest being the use of an alpha-ordered soft keyboard instead of the far more common and, now, far more natural QWERTY layout. At times, "back" goes a step, or more, further back than you'd expect. Missing features list is too long to totally list, but a few things: pattern search, common word lists, study features, and on and on...

- Excellent

The 'word finder' part of this app works well, and it takes maybe five minutes to get through its "unintuitive" learning curve. Perfect for Wordfeud, which I've been playing for several years. After getting Scrabble Players' Dictionary, I don't recall receiving a "PLEASE WRITE US A REVIEW" notice; this also is a plus.

- Good

I'm a tournament player and it's nice to have access to the tournament mode section where you can see all playable words. Request: I would love to see a section (one for filtered mode and another for tournament mode) where you can only see the 5,000 new words. This would make it much easier for study purposes. Great job with this!

- Scrabble Dictionary

Love the app. I only wish that the developer would update it so that I don't get a message saying the app slows down my phone. I find the app helpful for all kinds of words and use it when playing Scrabble and learning new words in books I am reading.

- App is not well maintained

I have been receiving messages from iOS for months about this app's incompatibility with the newer iOS and that it may cause problems with battery life, etc. No update available... Today I was prompted that the developers must update the app as it will be incompatible with future iOS versions. I assume that means it will not run at all. Glad I paid money for something I will not be able to use.

- Family Sharing

I recently got a Scrabble Dictionary app on my iPhone but not able to share it to my wife’s iPhone. That’s one reason I bought it. I read that there’s a Family Sharing, so why I am not able to do so? I emailed you but I was told I am not recognized. Trying to reach you seemed complicated.

- Poor Definitions; no updated vocabulary/data ctionary

Besides winning at Scrabble, I would like to improve my vocabulary. However, words are often defined by the same word you are asking about. This is particularly true when the word is a variation on another word and the original definition is never given. This is frustrating. Other times, definitions are simplistic and inane. Overall, I wish the “official” scrabble dictionary was a bit more comprehensive/sophisticated. I cannot load an updated Scrabble app on my iPad mini. I have three of them in n right now. The one I had lost the “best word” Character. I deleted that after four years and cannot reload it. No game has current word list. No viable help from EA. I’m sick about this software!

- Future updates??

I use this AP all the time playing Scrabble at home. However, I am concerned about messages I keep receiving from Apple regarding the impending IOS 11 update. This 32 bit APP will need to be updated to run on the new platform. Any word yet on an update???

- Absolute garbage, total ripoff

For starters, the first time that I opened the app, a message appeared telling me that the developer must update it to prevent it from slowing down the entire iPhone. Then I went to use it. There are many many "words" that have absolutely no definitions whatever. As these are words that I had never heard before, I went to other dictionaries to find out what they mean - I couldn't locate them anywhere!

- Missing all functionality of paper copy.

This app blows. $4.99 and you can’t even browse the dictionary! I was expecting to be able to read through the list of words like the paper copy of Scrabble dictionary and learn new words and their definitions. Also, it is missing the section of two letter words. You can only look up words with the search function.

- Very Useful

I use this app almost daily playing Word games. It is also very handy to have open when I play the game of Scrabble with others to verify spellings. An update would be great.

- Disappointed

I'm a little triggered by this app. I thought I was getting an ebook of sorts, of the scrabble dictionary, one I could peruse to learn new words. But you can only search for words, which is a little annoying. For a few dollars more I could have bought the scrabble dictionary for my kindle app. I wish I had done that.

- Need update for latest IOS update 10.3.1

I use this app everyday. Please update it as I got a message it won't work with current update to IOS. Please make it so it doesn't slow down my iPad and IPhone. Thank you

- Very poor dictionary component

This is more like a list of words without accurate or complete definitions. For $5 this was a rip-off. One would expect more from Miriam-Webster, so I am especially disillusioned. These folks have the information, so why not include thoughtful definitions of the words covered? The first two words I looked up had no definitions at all. Really unexpected and disappointing.

- Love this app - Please update for 64bit iOS

I use it regularly with my Scrabble meetup and would like continue to use it when iOS 11 is available. Please update to 64 bit if for no other reason than to make the warning go away.

- Please update for iOS 11

I'll miss this app if it stops working when I upgrade in a few days. And rating will go to 0 stars.

- Needs pronunciation and use in a sentence

I like the "word finder" ability, but for the obscure (2 letter) words wish you could hear pronunciation and see it used in a sentence. Also interesting to see which slang or colloquial words were included/ excluded

- Update Needed!

It doesn’t keep what I’ve entered when I return from Scrabble Game as it had before. It’s now continually malfunctioning. I’m no longer a fan until they fix that with an update. I’ll cross my fingers that that’ll happen soon. Thank you.

- App Fix Suggestions

1) Change keyboard to QWERTY! 2) Add a clear or reset button after you click “Find Words” so you don’t have to click edit each time! The. THIS WOULD MAKE IT 5 STARS!!!

- Zarf app has better word hooks

I'm a scrabble aficionado from China. I like this app a lot, but I still think Zarf is more helpful in regard to word hooks. Hopefully, this paid dictionary will be able to upgrade soon.

- Needs updating

There are number of words that you can use in Scrabble that are not showing up on the word finder. Very frustrating!

- Love it, needs update

I use it all the time, but now getting message that it won't work with IOS 11😢

- Just wrong

I just bought this app, and tried to look up two unusual words played by the computer in the Scrabble app. In the playable word list in the game. Not found in the dictionary app. Looked them up *on the free Merriam-Webster web site,* and there they were! Not archaic. Not foreign. Not in the app. Legal. "Official" dictionary?!? I want my money back.

- See review titled "CHANGE"

Fix the annoying coverup of the space where you enter a word. It is a simple problem since in the older app it was not happening. Send out the bug fix or I will not buy or recommend this app to anyone.

- Updated for IOS 11. Hooray

Update: back to being a favorite app Old review: This used to be a well-used app, but it desperately needs to be updated

- No maintenance

Been getting messages since iOS 9 that the app can slow down my phone and needed updating. The publisher has done nothing. As of iOS 10 I removed it from my iPhone. I would hope that at some point, Apple will take this down to protect future buyers.

- Disappointed

I need to know words that end with a letter and no place for that. Why not?

- Change

Today while playing I would search for a word then when I wanted to erase the word and search for another it covered up where I normally push the X to erase the word then enter the new word I'm checking. VERY FRUSTRATING!

- Good to have the Scrabble Dic on phone

But the app didn't take opportunity to fix the flaws in the book version: if you look up a word you don't know, the definition given is often another single word you don't know. WITH NO LINK TO THE NEW WORD! Why!?

- Can it really be this bad?

I assumed other reviewers were just being picky. Wrong. Poorly designed, non-intuitive -- a total waste of money. Even common words are missing. Would definitely like my money back, but I guess that's not going to happen.

- Love this

I love this app, but Apple says it requires updating and will not be supported by the next version of iOS. I would hate to lose it.

- Not up to date!

The latest Scrabble Dictionary book edition is #6. This app is #5, so it is not current. Some words in the Scrabble Dictionary book are not found in the app.

- Lack of definitions

This dictionary has the words but is horrible at providing the meaning. For example, for kicks, I typed the word “pet”. All I found was that this is a verb, and I meant “to caress with the hand”. So is “pet” not an animal kept as a companion? I abhor this dictionary. What a rip-off!!!

- Fraudulent

Does not include all words without a ~$20/year third party subscription, unless you already are a professional scrabble player with a tournament membership. Useless app, I want a refund.

- Please update this app

Please update this app so it will continue to work in IOS


I keep getting a constant message that the IOS VERSION WILL NOT SUPPORT AP. I really like this ap. Just please update asap. It's been three years!!!

- Please update

So that apple stops telling me that this is out of date.

- Needs to be updated for XS Models

This is a nice app but definitely needs to be updated for larger screen iPhones. App content looks unusually large like scaled up iPhone apps on an iPad.

- Great app! Easy to understand and use!

Great app! Easy to understand and use! David Lorea Farrington

- Letters disappear

I like the app. Easy to use. But now, every time I switch from this app to another, all the letters inout in are lost! I have to continuously re-enter. Very irritating and not worth the time any more.

- Useless and frustrating

Non intuitive. No way to get help with login. Tournament mode exposes all words. No option to check just played word.

- Great so far

So far I love it. It's exactly what I was looking for.

- Bad display

Cannot use it with the bad display. Very uncomfortable. Deleted it already and I don’t know why I cannot have my refund. It’s waste of money, don’t recommend it.

- So, so disappointed...

I thought this was a whole dictionary of scrabble words that I could look at and study but it’s more of a cheat. Wasted money.

- Flawed

Inefficient to use. Also, words often have no definition or information.

- Frustrating!!!!

Valid game words but not found in this dictionary!!!! Needs improvement!

- Is AA is an official Scrabble word?

I looked up the word on the official Scrabble website. AA is a word, but it doesn't show up as a allowable word in the app. The app is painful.

- Official Scrabble Players dictionary

App no longer loads or is usable after the iOS 11 software update.

- Play with friends hangs on attempt to login

I'm constantly losing the games I play with my mother (friend) because scrabble UA doesn't understand "login" to Facebook. There is no login on ipad - facebook opens in another app automatically. So the scrabble program attempting to parse a login protocol doesn't work. Totally frustrating. Don't you test your protocols????

- Disappointed

I wanted the equivalent of the paper version, which I can browse. The description says there is a scrolling index that lets you do that, but I can’t find it. Also, this is out of date, so it is a rip-off. Where is the sixth edition? I think I should get a free upgrade when it comes out.

- Works great

App works fine on my iPhone 8+ with iOS 12.1.2 and it was helpful during a family game of scrabble

- Could use an update for usability

Every single word in this dictionary should be visible on the app... Bit of a cop out to give us a link to the dictionary website for the more uncommon words- i paid for this! I'd love an "acceptable"/"unacceptable" feature to searched words a la word checker. Think about how this app can be used best during a challenge, and please design it to match that need!

- Would have given it 4 more stars but

It has not been updated for IOS 11, and will simply stop working. The company seems to have abandonned us.

- Update this app!

Lots of functional problems. It has not been updated in nearly 21/2 years!

- dictionary scrabble

I don't know why but your dictionary doesn't take my words., bye, you needed a upgrade dictionary, please

- Update needed

December 2015 - new words accepted by game not included in Scrabble dictionary!

- Ending in ????

Dictionary is missing section, words that end in?????

- Needs to be updated with new words


- Annoyed

Still lots of bugs in this app. Sometimes it asks me over and over to log in when I've just logged in! Very frustrating!!! Some words are French yet some English words are not accepted. Makes me want to delete app and play a different game!

- Scrabble dictionary app.

Ok at best. Voice recognition poor, answers in word search should be in capitals as scrabble tiles are, would be nice if it had a 7 letter anagram feature instead of all words as an option.

- Great app

Very useful,love it!

- My feedback

I really only use this when I am not on line to use the scrabble word finder there the biggest issue is only 8 letters in word finder I would not recommend this app

- Form unite

Wish I hadn't bought it. Waste of money. Don't like the noise. Although not necessary for Scrabble, it's always nice to know what words mean. It helps to remember them so disappointed meanings not included.

- Not very useful

There are better free apps than this for scrabble. It only allows to put 8 tiles which is not sufficient most of the times while you are looking for a solution for your scrabble game.

- Where is 'AA'?

A rough, cindery lava.

- Sweet app!

Love it.

- Beautiful

The first reviewer is not familiar with the old and much loved Scrabble Dictionary. It's not intended to be a complete reference guide; it is a compendium of all words permitted in Scrabble. Unfortunately the Scrabble app has been so dumbed down and diluted that I'm not sure you'll find half of the words permitted on it in any dictionary, even its own eponymous dictionary.

- Dissapointing

Very disappointed in this dictionary. For $5 I thought it would have everything but it has limited definitions, I mean how do you learn a word if it doesn't tell you what it means? I typed in "fanga" and it gave me "noun - fanega", that's it, and you then have to type in "fanega" to find out what that means. It's only after you buy this that it tells you in its description it isn't a "full dictionary". So essentially they slap the word "Scrabble" on it and charge you a premium price. Their cheaper dictionary seems to have everything this one is missing.

Technical feasibility of building this as a Tracery twitter bot? Maybe just plug the Barfas word dictionary into a Scrabble AI playing itself and render the final game boards?

@numeri33 Oh, what a dear story. If it reflects on your parenting, it’s nothing but good that your kids were playing Scrabble. Now, all ya gotta do is teach them the rules require that a word may found in a dictionary. (Yikes! I wonder if “bot” isn’t in a dictionary! 🤭😬🥴)

First game of scrabble with kid. My home rules allow her to use a dictionary. 427-160. I had senior adult advantage. I think she still liked it.
