  5. Hint word disappears too quickly

    Sometimes when I use a hint, put in my word and submit it, I get distracted for a second and miss the message saying whether I got the hint word or beat the hint. Can you make it stay on the screen until I dismiss it, or make it an option to be able to do this? Or something to click to show it to me again?

  10. Dictionary

    Please add the pronunciation/phonetic transcription to the dictionary so that we can learn how a certain word is pronounced properly. I love the dictionary feature in this game.

  13. Time Zones

    Hello, I suggest you have an option when selecting random opponents of a Time Zone. I live in Australia and sometimes must wait for long periods for opponents move (eg if in UK or USA)

  15. Nudging

    The inability to nudge someone who hasn't played in several days forces us to quit or resign. Please provide a nudge or add code to cancel a game if there has been inactivity after a week or so .

    I put our system info below. Some people do send friendly chats as nudge reminders. “You want to play some more turns today?, etc.” Saying things like “Play now” or “Are you ever going to play” often is not taken well.

    We do have nudge on the feature request list.

    The system will delete random games after 7 days and other games after 11.

    When it’s not your turn and you would like to remove a game from your game list you can select “Remove Game” from the game menu. When your are viewing a game board the game menu is in the top right corner. You will no longer see the removed game on your list after selecting remove game. However if the player does make a turn before the auto resign time period is reached it will come back on your list.

    You may also Block a player…

    We do try to keep the dictionary in line with the Collins and Webster’s scrabble dictionaries.

    Quey and Queys are currently valid words on our list. This usually occurs when other words are being formed at the same time that are not valid or there could be a stray tile on the board.

    Full word list details:
    We added the definitions as a bonus feature to provide many definitions for the curious. However there are very few sources we can access easily and legally from the app. Currently our definition source is Wordnik.com but its not connected to the validation list.

    For word validation we try to closely match the Merriam-Webster’s Scrabble dictionary (link to it is below).

    This is the link for Scrabble’s official list (They have access to an official Merriam-Websters Scrabble dictionary for definitions):
    http://www.hasbro.com/scrabble-2/en_US/search.cfm

    The link above does not always let you search all forms…
