That Word is a no-frills, simple, casual word-finding game. The goal is to accumulate as many points as possible by spelling as many words as you can from six randomly selected letters. Each set of six letters can spell at least one six-letter word—you must find one of these six-letter words before the clock runs down to continue to the next round.

That Word is free to play and is ad-free. An optional, one-time in-app purchase can be made to upgrade to That Word Plus, which unlocks the following features:

• Dictionary Access: Lookup word definitions at the end of each round.
• Pause and Resume Games: Start a new game without worrying if you have time to finish—just pause the game and resume anytime.
• Track Your Personal Stats: See your playing statistics, including games played, total points, rounds played, accuracy, time played, and special plays made.
• View Your Top Scores: Track your all-time top 25 scores and daily top 3 scores.
• External Keyboard Support: Use an attached keyboard while playing for super-fast play.

Thank you for the update

Thank you so much for updating this game. It’s my favorite to play when I have just a few minutes, like while waiting for an appointment. I had been so disappointed when I could no longer play it! Great that you changed the icon for it - it was how I knew there was finally an update. Thanks again.

My wife and I picked up this game and literally couldn't stop playing until we couldn't spell the words it was so late. I love that you can advance as long as you find the six letterword.

Thank you for bringing back this app

Great app. My only request is to be able to adjust the time that you can play each round. It would be nice to have a 5 or even 10 minute round. Maybe even a never timing out setting for practice.
