The classic board game comes to iOS smartphones
SCRABBLE free is an impressive re-creation of the classic board game for iPhone and iPad.
Beloved by wordsmiths everywhere, you can choose to play SCRABBLE free against another opponent at random, specify a user you want to play against or just pass the game back and forth with another friend in person. It's a great addition to your collection of iOS word puzzle apps, which may also include games like WordUp!
Playing SCRABBLE free feels very natural, and the simulation of the game has been carefully kept as close to the original board game as possible. Users place tiles on the board simply by dragging and dropping them from the rack at the bottom of the game screen. Once you've made your word just tap the "Play" button and the points will be added to your total (as long as the word is valid, of course). If you're unsure whether a word will actually count, SCRABBLE free has a dictionary provided within the app for you to double check with, adding to the convenience and authentic experience of the game. SCRABBLE free also lets you tile swap and recall your submission.
SCRABBLE free's presentation is immaculate. The graphics are high-definition and the menu screens are easy to locate and make use of. Unfortunately, the background music can get a little annoying. The pop-up ads that interrupt your SCRABBLE free game after every play are also unjustifiably intrusive, especially considering there are also static ads at the bottom of your screen.
SCRABBLE free is nevertheless a fantastic adaptation of this classic board game for iPhone and iPad.
