    How is the AI? I had it for my Treo and it was pretty good.

    had it for the palm T3.

    The AI here is very good. Very polished. Only played one game, though.

    HOWEVER... As far as I saw, there is no "championship" mode, which means, if you get a word wrong, you don't lose your turn. that's a somewhat major turn off for me, but it's still fun, and it may be (who knows) addressed in a later revision.

    Interface is fine, very easy to place words.

    I have a few problems -- the major one being, is that it uses the expurgated dictionary (ie, no bad words) -- which is not what is used in tournament in club play.

    There is no option to play a game with challenges.

    The computer played a phony on me today -- "PL" -- I had no recourse to challenge. Playing phonies is a part of the game, but not if you can't call your opponent on it.

    ... but for ten bucks.... we'll see if the playing of a phony was an isolated bug or a regular thing with the AI.
