    Kinda breaks the game doesn't it? It basically plays for you and gives you the best possible word and puts the tiles down for you. Worst of all it gives the player that uses it full points with no negative repercussions. Obviously you could just not use the function, but what if your playing "pass and play" style multiplayer with a cheater? I looked for a way to turn it off but found nothing. Anyone else find a way to turn "best word" off, if at least for multiplayer?

    Edit: by the way if there's a better spot for me to have posted this thread, as in a dedicated ipod touch/iphone apps section of the forum please do tell

    Yeah I think it's kind of stupid too, but if you're playing pass n' play you can agree beforehand not to use it and see if someone's cheated because it uses a heart icon from above their score, fyi :)

    I guess this section is the best in regards to applications. :)

    Can only use it 4 times in a game. Computer player is almost a dictionary, so I don't think it's unfair.
