    Good word game, but somewhat limited.

    Nice landscape layout, option to choose between several designs/colors for the background and tiles.

    It is satisfying to clear the entire board, and when you're down to 3-4 letters that can't possibly make a word, you have 3 shuffles. Problem is usually you will get another 3-4 letters that can't make a word, and so on until all 3 of your shuffles are used. But good luck doing this without shuffling at all - I've only managed to do it once.

    There were a couple of somewhat common words that the app's dictionary didn't recognize. Other than these issues, recommended.

    Enjoyable Game

    As others have noted, much like Bookworm. Only quibble so far is that the program does not seem to accept higher scores once all 10 slots have been filled, Otherwise, I have found the game enjoyable without being repetitive.

    So-so

    Doesn't work well: "shake" feature does not respond at all, and the "clear" button does not always actually clear (may take multiple tries).
    There is no "undo" button, though the help section specifically refers to one.
    The scoring method is not clear and its description in the help section is vague.
    "Shuffle", in this game, really means that you get new tiles in the same locations as the current ones.

    Very enjoyable word game! Nice to have the option to play timed or untimed. Excellent support from game developer, as version 1.1 has fixed the problem with recording high scores.

    Word drop tablet

    Love this game! Very addictive-when I finish one game, I can't wait to try again to get an even better score. This is my favorite word game of all time!

    Enjoyable. Works great. BUT shuffle gives new letters. It should shuffle the letters you already have. This really bothers me because you are testing yourself to make as many points with one board of letters as you can. Makes no sense to change or add new letters in the midst of a game. Its kind of like cheating or negating the current game.

    Great Word Game

    This game is so addictive. I have stopped reading books on my tablet. All I do is play Word-Drop. It's a great vocabulary builder at any age. It's definitely worth the money. You will love this game.

    It is okay.

    If you like single player words games then this is a good one. I personally prefer challenging others so I didn't care for it.

    I am addicted! Bet you will be too!

    I Love this word search and create game....it is very challanging but fun. I can play for hours and hours while I am increasing my deduction, focusing, spelling and other cognitive abilities.
    I think if it had a redo for your last word find it would be perfect.

    Fun and makes you think

    I like this game because I don't have to play with a time limit. Wish there were nicer graphics but works the same as other word-drop games. The shuffle feature is nice.

    Horrible. Anyone who says it is like Bookworm obviously never played the game. I do not have big or fat fingers, but it is so difficult the hit the correct key to make a word, it is crazy. Also, just boring.

    Another fun app

    I love word drop! I am amazed how you can zig zag and come up with large words. Entertained me for hours. It has two levels, three chances to shuffle the letters and several patterns of word tiles that you can select to change the scenery.

    Knock Off

    One thing i hate is a knock-off. This is a spin on bookworm except when you run out of moves, there is no automatic restarting.
