Review: Find the Synonym

Excellent easy to use word game to find the synonym, the word that has a similar meaning, for adults and older children.

View on the App Store: Find The Synonym - FreshLogo

Features of Find the Synonym:

  • Improves vocabulary immensely.
  • Great test of word knowledge for older children.
  • Discover a joy in word games.
  • Feel good as you realise that you know many synonyms.
  • Great educational iPad game for children who are able to read.
This is an well designed and easy to use educational word game based solely on finding the Synonym, or the word that has the same meaning as the one shown.

You are shown a word and underneath it in a meaning of that word.  Next you see a set of letters in a mixed up order, using letter tiles like 'scrabble'.

The first letter is always in the correct place. By tapping on a letter in the list, it moves into the next available space.  This makes it quick and easy to place the letters once you know the word, this is great because there are bonus points for forming the word quickly, based on a sliding scale of time. Once you have made the word select the arrow button on the right.

If you need some hints there are two ways.  You can use the reshuffle button in the bottom right corner and that gives you are different view of the remaining letters.  If you still cannot work it it you can choose to use a clue.  Touching the light bulb button on the right this places a letter for you, but takes away available points.  You can use 5 of them.

The synonyms are ranging from 4 to 7 letters and they are great for older children who can read but who are looking to expand their vocabulary. This is also a great game to play with people working as a team.

After each word formations you receive a score, you can add words to your favourites and you can easily tell how well you are doing with your own progress chart which gives a full breakdown. 

Collect badges for certain amounts of synonyms found, for added motivation and challenge.

Age Group:


The only thing I don't like are the adverts at the bottom, however an older child can tune those out during the game, make sure you are offline when you play. I would prefer a paid for version without ads.
