I love Scrabble, but this implementation leaves a lot to be desired--mainly visually. The board looks so cluttered as to be unreadable--the boundaries between squares are too thick, the "DW", "DL", etc, lettering in the bonus squares is also too heavy. Letter tiles should be much more prominent than empty squares and they are not.

Also one should have the option to remove the "DL", "DW" designations from the board to further unclutter it (like the Lexulous game on Facebook for example).

It's almost impossible to see the cursor even though it blinks occasionally--because its outline is much lighter than the board itself. It is similarly almost impossible to see the Kindle bot's most recent move at a glance--you have to scan the whole board for the little marker telling you how many points the bot's word was worth.

The Kindle screen definitely has the greyscale capability to make this game a lot more appealing visually, it's just a sloppy implementation. They should offer this beta for free and charge for the update once the interface is polished. As things stand, they should really offer a free update but I don't have high hopes for that.

It seems you can't play multiple games at the same time--it asks if you want to continue the most recent game, which is saved, or erase it and begin a new one. I can imagine such a feature being useful--for example, you may want to play on the Easy level with your child on a trip, but also continue your saved game on the Normal or Hard level later.

I played the Normal level and it was too easy. As a comparison, I can barely eke out an occasional near-draw from the Lexulous bot, so I'm not a genuis player by any means (and English is not my first language). Haven't tried the Hard level yet.

... an even greater disappointment because I think the EA Scrabble game for IOS is excellent. I seldom take the time to write reviews — indeed, this is my first one-star missive -- but something this annoying deserves posting a caveat to my fellow Scrabble lovers. Where to begin?
1. The game is INCREDIBLY SLOW. Any action takes between 3 and 7 seconds! And yes, this was timed with a second hand.
2. Touch screen responsiveness is atrocious; certainly no better than 50 %.
3. What the above means, of course, is that half the time you’re undoing a move because you’re not sure if it “took”. A typical turn can take two to three minutes — even when you know exactly what word you want and where you want to use it.
4. The game reverts to default settings. For example, the “Difficulty” setting the AI returns to “Normal", even after setting it to “Hard” — every time.
5. The game eventually slows down to the point of being intolerable, crashes, and requires a reboot of the device, which takes three to four minutes and loses the game you’ve been playing.

Unfortunately, no other tablet or phone offers sufficient readability in bright sunshine. So if that’s where you like to play, you’re stuck with this. Just go into it with your eyes eyes and your expectations lowered.

This was one of the first things I got last month with my spanking new Kindle (3). I really enjoy this. I play in the bathroom (yeah, like reading, hah), and during commercials when watching telly. And if I'm waiting somewhere (in line, doc's office), I pull it out to play.

The Quick Play is what I use the most (you play against "AI" the puter and you can adjust the level of difficuty). I didn't find the normal difficulty very hard at all and beat AI 99.5% of the time, so if you're an experienced Scrabble player, choose the more difficult level.

A couple bugs have been apparent even in my short time usage (relatively speaking): Sometimes, it just won't give back a letter I put on the board (if I change my mind). I suspect it's cause I hit the delete or the switch place oddly or in some bug-activating sequence. Can't say for certain yet; but what happens is that if I put down "craven" , I can get back "raven", but it won't give me back the "c". The "captured" letter then stays on the board in that tile space and messes up whatever might happen in that area. I'll usually just end that game and start a new one when that happens, since I can't figure out how to get back the letter or delete it.

Also, the dictionary is a tad wonky. It sometimes won't accept words that ARE words. For example: "deformity." I can't remember the other one it refused.

But, aside those quirks/bugs, I love having this on my Kindle, even if it burns up the battery fast, so be aware of that. When I play a lot, the battery only lasts like 3 days. Fortunately, the Kindle battery recharges in under 3 hours. :D

Oh, and if you are middle-aged (or older) and have presbyopia (as I do), have your reading glasses handy.

Amazon paid games are very very disappointing. It seem that when you buy a new Amazon device most paid games will not work on that device unlike iPad or tablets. Amazon needs to seriously do some upgrading for their paid games. This problem has been very troublesome. I have purchased 2 scrabble games and neither one works on my new devices. Total of $8 dollars wasted. Bought one scrabble edition in January 2017 the other in 2012. I will not purchase any more games from Amazon. Never again...
