Scrabble for iPad is a faithful adaptation of that classic board game much beloved by logophiles, with tons of cool extras and several easy options for multiplayer games.
What Scrabble for iPad does best is simulate the look, feel, and even sound of the original game, with sharp HD graphics, gratifying sound effects (letter tiles pop into place with a subtle click), and an interface that will put Scrabble-lovers right at home, including a virtual tile rack that lets you rearrange letters. (And in party play mode, individual players can even use their iPhones and iPod Touches with the free Tile Rack app to play and manage letter tiles wirelessly.) Multiplayer is what Scrabble is all about, and Scrabble for iPad gives you several options, including pass-and-play, games over wifi, and Facebook integration that will let you play up to 25 different games with your Facebook friends. Single player mode is also well done, with variable difficulty (the harder setting will challenge even Scrabble vets) and a "best word" option (great for learning or just "cheating," as you automatically play the highest possible scoring word given the options available). The game also includes a built-in dictionary.
Scrabble for iPad isn't cheap, but it is exceptionally well designed and executed, and a solid value for Scrabble fans.
