PopWords! is a simple and addictive word finding game. There are three different ways to play:

Classic: Find words as fast as you can from an endless stream of letters. Finding words fast enough to keep the game going gets harder and harder as time passes. Try to reach the highest level you can! Then check out the leaderboards in Game Center and realize you've got a long way to go :)

Puzzle: You only get one board full of letters, so use them wisely! Longer words will earn you more points, and clearing the board completely will double your points for the whole game. Play on your own or compete in our Daily Puzzle competition to your score compares to everyone else who played that day. You can even watch the winning solution!

Practice: Relax with no timer and just try to find as many great words as you can!

• Easy to learn -- just drag to make words!
• Daily Puzzle lets you compete against the world every day
• Game center leaderboards and achievements
• Tracks your records, averages, and all-time best words
• Relaxing untimed Practice mode
• A fun mental exercise to keep your brain sharp!

I love this game!

This game is a real winner! I've been playing it daily for a couple of years now; it's that good! In fact, most days I'll work on the daily puzzle multiple times in pursuit of a higher score. It's really rewarding to find longer words I'd missed in earlier tries. After an update I ran into some glitches and contacted the developer. She emailed me promptly, apologized! and remedied the problem. I was really impressed by the personal touch. Like others have said, I find the addition of ads for other apps very annoying. I'm happy for the developer if that's a sign of success (having attracted a lot of players). However, I'd be happy to pay for an ad-free version to be rid of the nuisance. Regardless, this is an awesome game!

What are the tricks? More time options!

The time allowed on Classic is really short & the game would be more interesting if it were longer - and even better if there were a couple of time options. Looking at the Scoreboards & seeing the outrageous scores of others makes me wish there were a few more Tips for Play given. I'm a good Boggler player, but I can't figure out what tricks people are using to get those crazy scores. I've only had this app a few days, but I'm getting bored with it because I can't figure out how to improve.

Addictive, but scoring is skewed

I love playing this, especially trying to get in the top %s in the Daily Puzzle. However, I think scores are much too heavily weighted towards long words. So, for instance, one 13 letter word puts you much higher than two 11s and a 9. So it becomes a search for words like internationalnesses, which I I think is going to bore me soon...... I wrote that first part about 6 weeks ago, and it is coming true. The program could be tweaked to limit the number of S’s, for example. I’d like to see a Qu included, too.
