    This is a game based app that encourages users to compete against themselves to get as high a score as is possible. Technically there is not limit to high a score that a user could get meaning that someone using the app could continually use it and keep improving on their best score. In fact, the write up on the website jokes that this app could potentially destroy your sleep patterns as you try to get the highest score possible! Although at it's route this app is a game there are also a number of other benefits for users within it. The aim of the app is to create as many words, within the time limit given, that all must start with the letter given. Therefore scores can certainly depend on the first letters that are randomly selected by the app. In playing this game myself for a number of hours I certainly found that with some letters I was getting lower scores just because there seemed fewer words that I could think of that began with these letters. In this way the app clever aims to help it's users expand their vocabulary and thinking skills to get the highest possible score they can achieve.
