What’s New

Version 7.0.12

This update fixes a bug that didn't recognize some older subscriptions (Remove Ads and All Access). To fix this: install this version, go to Settings and tap the Restore Purchases button. If you still have issues, please go to Settings and tap Email Support so we can troubleshoot for you. Thank you for your patience.

We’ve also updated text-to-speech on the game board:

* swipe right and left to advance through the screen elements as before, but now you can also swipe down and up to jump from one major screen section to another (back button, clues, answer/spelling, tiles);

* use a three-finger tap to switch between reading by word or by letter and two-finger swipe to advance through each clue;

* when you select a tile as part of an answer, you remain in the tile section, which should reduce the number of swipes required.

Finally, we’ve also updated the delete button: now a long press will remove all the tiles in the answer grid.

Thank you for playing and supporting 7 Little Words!

Daily User Grumpy about Update

I love this game and play it every morning with Red Herring and Monkeywrench to test how my brain is doing. I pay for puzzle packs because the games are well worth it, and ads are not part of my morning routine. I’m trying to get used to the new version, just downloaded today, and I’m not liking it yet, as a whole. 1) PLEASE give more color contrast in each word tile, as gray-on-gray is hard to see. 2) Please speed up the time it takes for a correct word to go up to its definition; the old speed was nice and crisp, and now it’s slo-o-ow. 3) Please reconsider the feature of leaving the attempted solution up and making me delete it, tile by tile, if it’s wrong, because right now I’m not liking the extra clicks. All that said, thank you for a great game, and I appreciate the idea of refreshing things once in a while. I do like the addition of photos for the packs. The colors are not overwhelming like some games but are pleasant. Thanks!

More hints, please

The word puzzles get harder and harder and you need hints to solve it in some occasions. Yes, you do provide fifteen or so hints at the start. Although this is considerate and useful, if we use logic you can tell that it may be a little misplaced. You’re going to lose them all at the start with the easy puzzles and then when you’re solving the harder puzzles, all the hints are gone. Then there’s really no other solution. I really don’t want to have to pay for free hints—so if you’re like me and don’t have unlimited hints, what do you do? Search the answers up on the internet? That ruins all the fun, and then the game is kind of, well, worthless. Using hints will help you when you're truly stuck but it will not give away the whole answer. You don’t have to give everyone who downloads this app unlimited hints, but please think this over and possibly give us more hints. I think thirty hints would be a reasonable amount. Or maybe you could use one hint for each puzzle you solve, and if you solve one without using hints at all you can provide us with one more free hint. Other than the hints issue, this is an amazing, good quality app that entertains me while providing me with a little brain work. I do recommend this, and I would give five stars if the hints issue was resolved. Thank you!

Hate the ads

I used to love the game, so I paid for the main version and bought a few expansion packs for more puzzles. The puzzles teach me new words and challenge my vocabulary.

All of a sudden you started getting an ad after each days “free” game. I bought it to avoid this. I emailed and the response was, “The paid version now comes with ads” which annoys me. To make matters worse, I had a software issue with my iPhone 6s+ (unrelated to this game) and when I got the game back from the cloud I lost my expansion packs. I’m not paying twice for them, as the progress I’ve made is lost as well, and I don’t care to do the same puzzle twice.

The game itself is challenging, and while they have hints you can easily find the answers online if you get stuck. I have done this and then researched to word or topic to learn more, which is why I downloaded it originally. It has helped expand my knowledge in a fun way. Knowing the letter count helps me figure out the answer even if it is unfamiliar, it just takes patience. Fun game but the rating is now 3, down from five due to the ads and loss of already purchased content.

Sorry for your recent negative experiences with our app. We have never had a paid, ad-free version (though we are considering it), but we are only showing ads around the free Daily Puzzles, never inside purchased packs. You should definitely get your paid packs back. Go to the app menu, scroll down to "Restore Purchases," tap on it, and follow the directions on the next screen. If that doesn't work, contact
