It's a scam app, they promise to pay your winnings to PayPal which should have been $600 and never do. First said my email was wrong as if they tried then said it would take 14 days. Well that was months ago and still nothing. This app is cruel. The game is stupid easy with A TON of ads every few seconds. Beware of these guys!

Is It Any Good?

Though it's hardly the first game to put a spin on Scrabble­-esque word puzzles, this game still has enough of a challenge to land a double word score. In Word Connect, you're given a bunch of letters and have to figure out what words you can make from them. For instance, if you have the letters "B," "S," and "U," you can spell "bus," "sub," and "us." Though there are some limits. If you're given the letters "S," "P," and "U," it won't let you spell the word "pus." Though it will, oddly, let you make "sup" (which is a real word; they didn't mean the slang for "what's up?"). You also can't spell proper names, as everyone named "Amy" will probably complain. As with all puzzle games, things get progressively harder as you have to make more and more words out of just a few letters. Good thing you can get help from a friend or buy a hint. Though all this does is fill in one letter on the board, which turns the puzzle into a partially finished crossword puzzle with no clues. In the end, Word Connect is no Scrabble or Words with Friends, but it's a fun word game that will keep even terrible spellers entertained for a while.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
