Wurdle takes vocabulary-building Boggle—the classic word search game from your youth—and makes it portable and quieter. Even new readers and shaky spellers will love goofing around with this app.
Can’t find anything? Shake your iPhone to mix the tiles (though we purists consider this cheating).
Why we like it:
True word game geeks will appreciate being able to set the word lists to TWL or SOWPODS (you know who you are). Play in Quick Play mode to avoid giving the developers your email address, and in untimed mode to avoid peptic ulcers. Cute sound effects and automatic word listing are the icing on the cake.
