You will be a word-game



Short Words instantly finds the single letters that fit before or after other letters to make valid short words. Knowing these single-letter “hooks” can improve your Scrabble® or Words With Friends® score by as much as 50 points.

Want to get rid of a specific letter or see what you can build from a letter already on the board? No problem: Short Words's “rack mode” has forced-character and wildcard options that let you find exactly what you need.

WARNING: The first time you play a word like “za” or “qi” (both of which appear in all dictionaries) your opponents may be outraged and appalled. Expect this outrage to continue until the first time they have the opportunity to play one of these words, after which you should have no more problems.
