Each occurrence of the red tile in a word doubles the points in the word. (YES, you can use a tile more than once to spell words.  i.e., APPETITE)

You don’t have to remove the whole word to create a new word.

  1. You can touch a single letter in the built word space to remove that letter. 

  2. The next tile touched is placed in the open space.  BEG, becomes BAG becomes TAG becomes TAP becomes GAP becomes GAPE becomes TAPE…simply by removing a single letter from a completed word or adding to an existing word.

 Use the ‘hint’ button to highlight tiles to build valuable words.  You still need to identify the correct order of the tiles.

You can ‘swipe’ across the built word space to remove all letters OR use the Refresh button.

Add ‘s’, ‘ed’, ‘er’, etc to words to quickly capture more/longer words.

Final Items:

On your active game list, once you finish a game, you can remove it by swiping your finger over it to the left and tapping “Remove”.
