This makes me want to get an iPad. But it still would not be as fun as playing the regular board game. This SCRABBLE app has a dictionary in, which defeats the whole "challenge" scenario.

No, it just makes verifying the challenge easier. You can still challenge... it just tells you right away if you've used a legal word or not.

Which makes the game easier, because you can play anything you think "might" be a word, until you get lucky, instead of being "sure" and risking a challenge if you're wrong. Plus, it shouldn't be up to the game to decide a challenge, it should be up to the player, who might not want to risk challenging.

I believe it is still up to the player to challenge making it so the risk is still there. But perhaps I'm wrong. I see your point.

Naw, I play it on my iPod all the time. There's no option to turn off automatic challenging. Even if you start a new Facebook game, you can't. Even when you play against the computer, you can't. Doesn't mean I won't play it, cause I do, but it doesn't replace the real game. It's just beneficial for practice and long-distance play.
