Zyzzyva Lite is available on the App Store!
Zyzzyva Lite version 1.0.0 is now available in the App Store! This free "lite" version of the app only includes word judge and search functions. Quiz functionality will be available in the full Zyzzyva app by the end of this year. You can get Zyzzyva Lite here:


If you like the app, please give it a high rating in iTunes! If you don't like it, please let me know how to improve it.

The app comes with several word lists, including OWL2 for North American club and tournament Scrabble, OSPD4 for school Scrabble, and WWF for playing Words With Friends. It also allows you to download your own custom word lists, and create special display symbols to denote words that are specific to a particular word list.

If your favorite word list is not included with the app, you can add it as a custom word list by downloading it from a plain-text file. To add a custom lexicon, go to Settings, then Lexicon, then Add a Custom Lexicon. I've placed downloadable versions of all the existing Zyzzyva lexicons in this directory for your convenience:


To celebrate the Zyzzyva Lite release, I've also discounted all the Zyzzyva merchandise that I currently have in stock. I have lapel pins, Scrabble tiles, and T-shirts in a few different colors and sizes. Check the link below to see what I have available. Once I run out, the deals will be gone.


To discuss the app, or if you have comments or questions, please email me or join the Zyzzyva Users mailing list:


Thank you to everyone who has made this possible. I appreciate the support more than I can say. There will be more where this came from!

Waiting on Zyzzyva Lite With Lime

I'm waiting for Zyzzyva 10 for Men.

you're awesome! I wish I had an iPhone.. but I will in a couple months.

Looks good. Word judge correctly identified BUTTSLOL as unacceptable.

Not built into the app, anyway. HarperCollins refused to let me include it in the app, as a condition of giving me the CSW12 lexicon for Zyzzyva desktop. It honestly makes no sense to me since every other app in the universe has a CSW list. I haven't talked with them in a while though, so I think I may be getting back in touch shortly.
