Do you love the SCRABBLE crossword game? Do you struggle sometimes to find the best word to use? Don't worry, it's a common problem to be linguistically challenged. Let Descrambler come to the rescue! Whether you're a tournament pro wanting a quick word check, or just a rookie looking to hone your skills and learn new words, Descrambler is the ultimate resource for players of all skill levels.

Enter your 7 tiles, and optionally the board tiles you'd like to include, hit Start... and presto, all possible word combinations are displayed in addition to the word score. We can even output the words in tournament format if you're so inclined.

Descrambler also can track complete games! Enter your opponents words as they are played, enter your tile rack, and presto - you can see ALL PLAYABLE WORDS for your turn! This is the ultimate word game learning tool... you can see hundreds, if not thousands of words on each turn!

Descrambler uses a standardized dictionary of almost 180,000 words, so if a word isn't in here, then you're out of luck as far as the game is concerned! Descrambler uses a proprietary lookup mechanism to ensure that your searches are blazing fast. And no internet connection is needed unlike those other guys. You can use our app even when you're stuck on a deserted island! ... playing Scrabble I guess, while waiting to be rescued...

Descrambler also comes with a word check function where you can easily verify that a word really exists. This is great for settling disputes when your know-it-all partner invents crazy words and pretends they're real!

Descrambler also is a great tool for players of Words with Friends, Wordfeud, Boggle, Literati, Crossword Puzzles and all sorts of other word games. It can also be used to find Anagrams.

Go ahead and try it out. We think you'll find it an indispensable resource while you're playing the SCRABBLE crossword game. Plus it's FREE, so what do you have to lose!

Note: Some people seem to be missing the 'Start' button in the Descrambler tab. You must push the start button to start searching for words.

Not as good as before.

Since the last update, it will no longer let you enter a ? For a blank tile. Frustrating. use to like it.

Crashes + ads

Fix it please!!!

Upgrade Ad is OBNOXIOUS!

I have the purchased version of this app, which is supposedly ad-free (the only reason to actually BUY it...), yet EVERY time I open it, I am bombarded with ads for something called Rheo, which I neither want, nor need. I would never buy that app simply for the reason that it has been shoved down my throat so obnoxiously!!

Since 10/7 update...

...there is the inability to enter the ? Into the board to indicate a blank tile. Thank you.

Failed update

I have used this app for years to help with finding words.... I deleted & re-installed. Still nothing. What is going on?

I did love this app...

This app was great when it worked but they haven’t updated to the new IOS 11 update so now I can’t use it. I’m so frustrated!

Annoying Ads

Why would a good app run such an annoying ad as that Rheo ad? It takes you offsite if you so much as breathe on it. Are you trying to make me STOP using Descrambler? It worked!

New update needed

Since we updated the new IOS11, the boards are lost. Goes right back to the home screen. Update needed.

The app tracking doesn’t work on iOS 11. When will you do an update?


After the last update, either through Descrambler or apple IOS 11, I can no longer open the tracking option on my ipad air2. Everything is working on my ipad2. what is going on? Please update your app so it works.


Descrambler does NOT WORK with the iOS 11. It WILL NOT take the question mark for a blank tile... bad. I tried to contact Descrambler for support but the link is a dead end.

Not working with iOS 11

Since I downloaded iOS 11, descrambler is not working for me. The track tab where I keep my games does not work whatsoever. Every time I click on it it goes blank and takes me back to my desktop. Very very frustrating as I am in the middle of a game I cannot get to now. Please fix it fast!


Some of the ads freeze or the screen goes blank. Have to shutdown Descrambler and reopen. The track is not working in Descrambler for Words with Friends. No update for ios11??

Crash :(

This app worked great...until I upgraded to iOS 11. Now I can’t load the games I’m tracking. When I try the app crashes - every time. Please update so the app will work again.

Update 9/7/17

Update to iOS 10? iOS 11 is just around the corner!

5 Stars With Reservations

This is a great app for helping you find words, but, someone should edit your dictionary. There are several vulgar words included in your dictionary. Makes me want to try another app like this, but a "cleaner" version.

iPad support

Great app, I use it continuously. It would be nice for those of us using it on an iPad if it would rotate into landscape orientation.

Love this app!!!!!

This is a most helpful app. I use it all the time.

Not Up To Date For Scrabble

I love this app, but the Official Scrabble Dictionary was updated about a year ago with many allowable new words. This app has not updated its list of acceptable Scrabble words, making it less useful for those of us who play competitively.

I love this app!

I love this app! Unscramble your letters (including blank tiles) in order right by point value, with the option of adding additional tile (or two consecutive) into the search, simulating tiles already on the board. Also let's you check to see if combination of letters will be excepted as a word, and which games will except it. How it could be better: - some way you could import a game once it's already started and been going for a while. - you're able to add an option to letters to simulate letters already on the board, but if you use both optional letters, the letters are treated as consecutive, limiting the results to words that include those letters back to back. It will be much more helpful if the results were limited in this way, especially when you want to add a word to the board and happen to cross or letters from two other words (i.e. the words would include two additional letters from the boards that are not consecutive). Otherwise – totally amazing way to cheat and words with friends!!!

Makes scrabble fun to “cheat"

As other people have noticed, the only way to achieve play level above intermediate is to “cheat”. This is because the official scrabble dictionary is so unfair in that it uses MANY meaningless and archaic words while allowing some foreign words arbitrarily (“qi” is allowed but “zen” and “jew” are NOT). When I first re-discovered Scrabble after 40 years, I felt so inept and inferior. Then I discovered the weird and indispensable world of two-letter alleged words (again, arbitrary). So no matter how hard I sweated over anagrams, I just kept losing both to the computer and to random online opponents. Now, this kindly and well-written app has restored the fun of the word-chase and reassured me that it’s not me, it’s the Scrabble rules. This app is better than the two others I checked out. This one is indispensable.


Tell me, I paid for no ads and I keep getting them😡

Love the app but.....

I paid for the ad free version. Why can't get I rid of these ads?? I've made this request for help numerous times. Can't get thru to apple support!!

Wrong Dictionary

by Hessian9 This app is still using the wrong dictionary for scrabble. It should be using the "official scrabble word list" which is the "Collins" dictionary! Because of that, the "track" section consistently misses much better words worth many more points! CHANGE THE DICTIONARY!!!

Needs wordlist updated

List is way behind WWF's. otherwise useful app.


So far this is the only app/website that I know has the capabilities to cheat this much for scrabble! It is as simple as inputting the letters on the board, then inputting your 7 letters... and then... MAGIC! It finds every possible combination of words on the board and it shows which ones will score the most points. Bottom line is that if you are playing scrabble, and you have this app, you will beat everyone. Nuff said...

Misses a lot of bongos

About one out of three bin goes it misses. Like tempore. Missed it. Scrabble dictionary had it. ???

Awesome app!

Highly recommended app to play word games - along with a dictionary! Fun app for playing and learning new, unfamiliar words. Get it!

Love it

Use it when board is jammed and no moves. It's gotten me out of some bad situations. Love it.


Love the app & find that most everyone that I play with use it, too! Wish they had an "ad free" app because I hate the ads! Your advertising is obnoxious!!!! Never ends!!

Don't Waste Your Time

This could have been great, but it's a waste. It requires too many keystrokes. The separation of letters into a) your letters and b) letters on the board is a needless and wasteful complication. Online descramblers are much better.
