• @itaintsam It's the misleadingly named 'Move Strength' feature. It's a little bar that appears on the right of the green play button and gives more info when you hover over it. It gives you the percentage of the highest scoring move available in relation to the word you've placed down. It's active before submitting your word. Possibly only available on the website version.


  • @prig-twitchell Thank you for the answer! Since a thermometer measures heat I couldn't think why one would be used in a word game.


  • @tessiemcm
    I am using a Dell desktop and the regular version of the game and I have it.


  • @mirandas Thank you!! I will inform my non-pro friends about it, in case they've missed it! Yay!

  • Can anyone confirm that the $1.99 version of the app doesn't (or perhaps does) have the thermometer? Putting it in the website version without putting it in the app was a dubious move, especially if it was anticipated that the thermometer would never be in the app. I can rightfully knock myself for not telling my app-playing opponent about it, but on the other hand our longstanding game of I don't know how many years may be over when I do – unless she wants to continue playing at a gross disadvantage and regularly losing. I won't be switching to a phone, and I doubt she'll want to switch to a laptop.


  • @roymccoy No idea. Cell phones don't work here in the "holler". (I wouldn't want to play on a phone anyway, personally.)

    Roy, you might want to specify IOS or Android. It would not surprise me if the two apps are very different.


  • @zaph

    iPhone/iOS. That would be one of four Lexulous apps, the other three being iPhone paid and Android lite and paid (assuming there's also a lite and paid version for Android). @lexulous or @sakamvari could presumably answer this.


  • @itaintsam Yes, the colored bits of the little bar rise towards the top kinda like a thermometer. Roy coined that term so credit to him. I just call it score strength.
