App description: Word Jewels® is FUN and 100% FREE!
"Awesome in so many ways! First of all, there is no time limit on this game, so it's more relaxing than other word games. You know how you get stressed out and watch the time on other games... none of that here. You can also close the app mid-game and go back to the same game, which helps as you get better and better. My favorite word game right now, definitely." --kenjer

LordGek's comments:
A cool word game by the same folk behind Poker Solitaire Jewels.

The gimmick is to use all of the red jewels in words to complete the level within a very tight number of moves (made words).

Also, for iPad owners, check out Word Jewels XL at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/word-jewels-xl/id437516617?mt=8.

It's essentially 100% identical to the iPhone version, just larger. Unfortunately I didn't realize the advantages of universal apps when I built it out... Lesson learned! :-)
