~~~~~~~~~~

SpellGrid = anagrams + crosswords

A game of SpellGrid starts with a single word without any repeated letters. You then clone and arrange letters to form additional words, joining them together in an ever growing grid.

How large a crossword can you build?

* INFINITE BOARD
Classic crossword building on an infinite board. You will never run into corners or out of space. Focus on the words, not the board.

* INTUITIVE DESIGN
Forget about tiles and racks. Just drag letters from the grid and drop anywhere to form words. Clone and multiply!

* WORD DISCOVERY
Use SpellGrid as a learning tool. Instant validation allows you to discover new words simply thru experimentation.

* COMPARE AND COMPETE
Completed grids are saved to the cloud. Compare and check out what others have created.

* UNLIMITED REPLAYABILITY
Can you think of a word with no repeated letters? Spell away and start a grid with that word. You will never run out of levels to play!
(You can create 7, 8 or 9 letter grids)

* ACHIEVEMENTS
Play on! Earn bragging rights with 40 Game Center Achievements.

* EVERY DAY IS DIFFERENT
SpellGrid will provide a different range of words to play depending on the day of the week, ensuring that you get a different experience every day.
