  • (2020-01-24) Charles Cornelius: It stopped working. Gets hung up on "loading board info."
  • (2014-03-14) cyrus satinitigan: I'm satisfied! thanks!
  • (2013-08-01) Bil Harding: More brilliant than a brilliant thing with brilliant sauce and keeps getting better!
  • (2013-07-27) mahn Morg: The Best in the World !
  • (2013-07-23) Elizabeth Kling: So much more than a tile tracker! The tile tracking is superb. Only the tiles remaining are listed, and very clearly so, so you can really see at a glance. Additionally: your rack is sorted alphabetically for you, an overview of total consonants and total vowels is given, definitions of words are provided when you click on the in-game owl. Oh, and your games are totaled on the left of the app...how many turns you have and how many awaiting! Installing this extension has vastly improved my Scrabble experience. There is now a note section, too. Bravo! And you can set up your tile count to your preferences. This is wonderful! Click on the owl every game to not miss your pre-planned moves.
  • (2013-07-22) Paul Coyle: With the addition of notes, I now have everything I need to make playing Scrabble a pleasure again, rather than a chore. I give this extension five owls!
  • (2013-07-22) Kay Moller: Love it - so helpful. Thank you so much, Dale.
  • (2013-07-21) Elliott Manley: Fantastic! Deals easily, simply and quickly with FIVE of the important missing functions from the Scrabble app. I love it.
  • (2013-07-19) SynchroMastery: What a fantastic free tool, and SO much better than the one you pay for. This has kept me playing online Scrabble, and deserves to go viral!
  • (2013-07-18) Robyn Cameron: Simply amazing and so much better than the tile tracker that comes at a price. Well done Dale!
  • (2013-07-18) Lauren: Quite simply this is genius. After the loss of function with the change of scrabble on facebook, this has saved my sanity. Well done!
  • (2013-07-18) sleepydormouse: Highly recommended. Not only does it fix several of the more annoying issues with the Scrabble app but you also get a dear little owl in your address bar and a tiny owlet in your dictionary!
  • (2013-07-18) LYNN GOOLD: Absolutely outstanding!!! Has made my SCRABBLE playing so much easier. I actually purchased the Tile Tracker in the SCRABBLE ap but the OWL is so much better - I never use the other version now at all. Certainly top marks to the developers!!!!
  • (2013-07-18) Deb Daniels: Top notch! Has made the new Scrabble app much more bearable! so easy to use love the link to dictionary definitions which I so missed in the new app A must have!!!!! Giving such a low rating to the OWL because you can't open games in Chrome is hardly fair. It's not the little OWL's fault!!!
