The Countdown App

Post by Noel Mc » Tue Apr 04, 2017 6:19 am

I know it sucks a little bit, but it's the only thing I've found to play on my phone. Does anyone know any alternative phone-playing methods?
Also, whilst it doesn't have he greatest dictionary, just wondering if anyone knows whether all the words it offers are actually valid on the show, or might some be out of date? Don't want to fill my head with invalid words!

Yeah, it's a load of shite.

Nice and succinct! Might just use it for numbers.

Sorry ,when I was referring to other apps I didn't mean countdown ones.
I do like the Mind Sports Academy's Scrabble app
