When I start the game I am getting a message that it needs to be updated
Apple has added a message in the latest versions of iOS that displays when you first run some of our games warning that the game will not work with future versions of iOS. All of our Sudoku and word games have been updated to conform.
When I run the game all I get is a splash screen of a dinosaur and then it returns to my home screen.

I cannot solve the puzzle and the online solver I used says it requires guessing to finish.
All of our puzzles can be solved using just logic and do not require guessing. We have tested and verified all the puzzles for this. Some of the more difficult puzzles, especially those found in Expert Sudoku, require advanced logic techniques that most online solvers do not utilize. We can provide a complete solution to any of our puzzles upon request.

Whirly Word

I updated my iPad to iOS 7 and now the game is too large
In iOS 7, if you have a non-retina iPad – including the iPad Mini – the 1x/2x options to zoom and shrink your screen when running an iPhone app have been removed by Apple.
Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to fix this but please contact Apple and give them your feedback.
How do I see all the words that I cannot find?
All the remaining words are revealed when you touch ‘End’ to end your game or ‘Next’ to advance to the next puzzle.
How do I use the dictionary?
The dictionary is available at the end of each puzzle. Follow the instructions on screen to use it.
What do the colored badges shown next to the scores mean?
The colored badges show where your current score places you in the overall records.
Whirly Word does not accept a word that I know is a real word.
The Whirly Word dictionary is constantly being refined. If you find a word that you think should be accepted by the game but isn’t then please let us know.
Note, that like most popular word games, we do not include proper nouns in the game.
How does the scoring work in Whirly Word?
Basically, shorter words score less, longer words score more. For example, a three letter word will give you 10 points and a six letter word will give you 40 points.
What are the “A” and “P” badges and how do I earn them?
The badges are bonuses awarded for solving the puzzle. The ‘A’ bonus is awarded for finding all the words and the ‘P’ bonus is awarded for finding a palindrome. You can tap on any of the bonuses to see how many points they are worth.
