What's New? 10.23 has a new rule. After 10 seconds both trays "Push-up". That means a new row appears at the bottom of the tray. This eliminated the traditional 10-second countdown.
Why use Facebook Login? Facebook users can log in effortlessly and their preference will be saved even if they move to a different machine. Players not using Facebook can enter their name and their preferences are saved in a cookie - which some privacy programs are prone to erase.

Why use iPhone Setup? If you start WordZap 10 in Safari on an iPhone you will find that annoying title bars keep popping up. To stay full screen there is a trick you need to know. You need to make WordZap an App! It's not hard. Click the square with an up arrow at the bottom of the screen and then navigate to the '+' icon that says 'Add to Home Screen' - and you are done. Exit Safari and then always start WordZap from your home screen instead of using your browser. It's much easier and you don't have to fuss with title bars any more. (Note: This also works on iPads)
What does the Space Bar do? Two things: If you want to cancel a word, press the SPACE and start over. If there is no word to cancel it does what we call an UP - that is it moves up a copy of the last word that was accepted. VERY USEFUL.
What does the Up Arrow do? It works like SPACE except ,if there already a letter in the next row, it appends a copy of the last word that was accepted. Suppose you just made the word LEASE. Enter P + UP-ARROW and you get the word PLEASE. Then hit UP-ARROW again and press D and you will be very pleased! Of course this only works if the letters you need are available.
What do I do if my device only has touch input? Try swiping!
Can I attach a keyboard to my mobile device and expect it to work with WordZap 10? You will just have to try it. It should work -- but we know that Logitech keyboards for the iPad do not work.
On Computers you can hit Esc if your boss is approaching. What to do on an iPad or iPhone? Press the Home button.
