Simply guess your own five letter words and Jotto will tell you how many letters your guess has in common with the secret word. Rule out letters you know are not in the word by tapping them once to turn them red, or tap them twice to turn them green if you’re sure they are included.

Once you think you know the secret word, enter it and see if you’re correct!

FUN & ADDICTING! -- Word game enthusiasts will enjoy using their thinking skills and vocabulary knowledge to discover what the secret word is with as few guesses as possible!

TWO MODES! -- In Single Player mode the game generates a random five letter word for you to try and guess. You can also challenge friends in Multi Player mode by entering your own word for them to figure out!

ANYONE CAN PLAY! -- Three difficulty settings allow players of all ages and skill levels to have fun while the intuitive alphabet tiles and word-entering feature is designed for even the least tech-savvy person to use with ease!

I would have given this app 4 or 5 stars... until today. Apparently it was updated overnight, and now the words guessed, which appear on the right side of the bank of letters WRAP so that they're very difficult to view and comprehend. Also the colors are too pastel and similar to one another. Hard to detect green vs yellow or even red. Hope these issues are fixed soon, especially the word wrap issue. Also hope I'll find the new version has more "difficult"-level words. I've been through them all so many times my guesses are based on memory of past words found. That's all. Thanks. I play on my iPad 3, btw.

Thank you very much for the review! I will work hard on improving the UI (especially on the iPads) and I will also have another look at the colors. I will also definitely be adding more words in the next updates. If you'd like to receive the newest updates early or have some other ideas for improvements, please get in touch at Thanks again!

Excellent for solo play

Someday perhaps it will have a portal so we can play ‘live’ with others. But as a solo game it works quite well. Coming from 50 years of pencil and paper Jotto, it took me a few frustrating moments to get used to the red-green-yellow buttons. But now that I have got it down, I am very happy to be able to play Jotto whenever I feel like it. The lone developer is kind and very responsive to questions!

“Yellow for Maybe” Feature Disappeared After Update

I’ve been enjoying this game but already had 3 wishes for improvements:
- Wanted a different color to designate double-used letters in harder levels;
- Wanted no double-used letters in the lowest level, which isn’t supposed to have any; and
- Wanted more words to solve for.

However, since the latest update, not only is there no special color for double letters, now we no longer have the yellow designation to indicate possible letters. This is a step backward, so I’m giving a lower rating than I would have before the update. [lYellow for maybe” was reinstated, so I added a star.]

The update that was supposed to filter out double letters where they don’t belong did not work. I’ve come across 2 or 3 with double letters in the Easy section, and just now my word turned out to be “MOMMY.”

Please remove words with double letters from the Easy list, consider adding an additional color, or some other indicator to designate a double-used letter.

Thank you so much for the detailed review, I have added back the yellow color in the update 2.2.1 and it will be available very soon :-)
