Classic Words is the best word game to play against your iPhone or iPad (solitaire mode). Scrabble for victory and enrich your vocabulary thanks to the built-in word definitions!
6 languages are supported: English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Dutch.
Tired of stumbling across cheaters or waiting for hours for your online opponent to play on multiplayer games?
Try out Classic Words for instant fun, no matter if you are a beginner in crossword games or a tournament player!
Choose the difficulty level (from beginner to expert), pick a word list, and use your strategy skills and vocabulary to try and defeat the iPhone. The English word lists included in the game are inspired by the official lists used in Scrabble tournaments: TWL and SOWPODS.
Classic Words gameplay is classical to crosswords board games: create and place words on the board and boost your score by placing letters on the high scoring Double Letter, Double Word, Triple Letter and Triple Word squares.
Use all 7 letters from your rack to play a Bingo and get a 50 points bonus.
This game is a great time killer for all fans of board games and strategy games. It is also an educational game that will allow kids (and adults :-) ) to improve their spelling and vocabulary.
Thanks to the fast reactivity of the artificial intelligence (AI) and to the official word lists, Classic Words can be used by the traditional word game enthusiasts to play quick training matches and learn new words from the computer's moves.
Unlike with multiplayer board games where some dishonest players use anagram solvers, there is no cheating possible when playing in solitaire... Letters and blanks are always picked randomly, and the computer's artificial intelligence does not have more information than you do.
Only your tactics and creativity can make the difference...
Will you play strategically enough to outwit the computer and its extensive vocabulary?
- 6 levels of difficulty
- Automatic display of the definition of the iPhone words
- Distribution of letters and points are adapted to the language
- Supports offline play
Languages and dictionaries supported:
- English (SOWPODS 2012 + TWL06)
- German (with support of Umlauts, and Ezset to be replaced by two 'S')

Ratings and Reviews
Classic Words gets 5 stars from me!
I prefer solo games against the computer like Classic Words for expediency reasons, so this one has gone directly into the "favorite games" folder on my iPhone!
The interface is easy to use and the processing is fast. There is no game clock or time limit, so I can take as long as I want to place my tiles.
So far my only criticism is that there are no clear labeled "save" or "resume" buttons when you leave a game and want to come back to it. I thought my unfinished game was lost until I clicked "new game"; it took me right back to the one I had left the night before. Good function, but slight lack of clarity with instruction.
Very enjoyable game for the casual solo player who doesn't want a "social" game.
Two thumbs up!! 😉
Enjoyable game but could stand some improvements
I like this app because it has the same points layout as the original Scrabble game, unlike some of the other popular ones out there. I also like that it shows the points before you play the word. I just wish that I could play with a friend in the room, handing it back and forth. Also, some of the features, Like seeing what letters are left, do not work on my iPad. Overall, I enjoy playing this game a lot but it is better on my phone than on my iPad and it could stand some improvement.
BETTER ON THE DROID
This was my favorite game on my Droid . When I switched to an iPhone, it was the first game I downloaded. I was disappointed in the lack of features. When playing a word on my Droid I was given the definition to both my word as well as the computers. Sometimes I would throw letters together and found out they worked. It was nice to see the definition and learn a new word. I could also swipe a word at anytime during the game and get the definition. My biggest frustration when I play this version is I no longer have the option to stop the screen from zooming in. With the Droid I took care of it in my settings. Since the iPhone version doesn’t have this option, in order to zoom out I have to constantly have to double tap the screen. Hopefully the iPhone’s version can catch up with the Droids.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
