If you're looking for a word game for the iPhone, Blanks is definitely one for you to consider. This app is a very simple and straight forward way for you to test your knowledge of the english language, or just play a game on your phone. The interface is very straight forward and cool looking so when your friends see what you're playing they're less likely to rag on you for playing a word game.
Blanks presents you with a definition and four multiple choice answers. There are tons of definitions so you probably won't repeat for quite some time, even if you play it often. All you need to do is pick the right word and head on over to the next question. No time limit or end really, so it's the perfect game to pick up and play whenever you want.
The coolest part about Blanks is how it looks. Your definition is written on a piece of graph paper with a cigarette type hole burnt into it. You're job is to take one of the four answers that are written on pieces of ripped off graph paper and then drag it over to that hole. A correct answer gets you a green check and a wrong answer gets you a red x.
Word games have a lot more staying power because they usually don't require anything fancy when they're being made. With that in mind, Blanks looks awesome and the word challenges can range from very easy to very difficult. It's a great way to brush up on your knowledge while enjoying yourself.
