One of the best ways to improve your writing is to improve your vocabulary. Yes, you could flipMan and woman play word games on iPad and iPhone. through a “word of the day” calendar or study the dictionary every night before you go to bed, but we think games are so much more fun – and effective. Your brain absorbs much more information than you likely give it credit for, so have some fun while you’re learning and  kill two birds with one stone. The following 5 fun word games for iPhone are Winghill’s office picks. Read on to learn why we like each and try them out yourself by using the App Store on your iPhone!

1. Scrabble – $0.99

Scrabble is a classic favorite when it comes to word games, and the electronic version is pretty good too. We like Scrabble because it’s easy to play, the app is easy to use, and it allows you to connect with friends and ask them to start a game with you. Search “Scrabble” in the App Store on iPhone to download the game for yourself. There are a few free versions, but we like the 99 cent version the best.

2. Hexalex – $1.99

If you like Scrabble, you’re going to love Hexalex. It’s the world’s first hexagonal crossword game! We could sit and play for hours on end (or until our phones died, at least).
