Great concept, but...
by Dave___76 on 2020/01/05 17:42
I understand they need to make money, but 4 puzzles and then paying for each new puzzle. Make the whole app available for a single price or have ads. Also, not every word has a clue, which really help.
Less monetizing!!!
by Garfiled the cat on 2019/12/25 03:19
This game would be great if it didn’t require you to pay for more levels
Love it!
by Ms.Upset on 2019/11/26 03:10
I love it so far. Haven’t bought any app purchases yet though.
Needs work
by Eyeless Fish on 2019/10/24 09:07
This app is really fun. But the accessibility needs work. A blind person can’t possibly be expected to find the word that they need a hint on. Especially if they’re totally blind, as well as when there are a mass of words that have been found. I’m writing this, because I want the app to be better. Keep up the good work☺️

Highly addictive game. And Tons! of fun!!!
Great game for everyone!
by braille liz on 2019/09/04 14:17
I absolutely love this game and often can’t put it down. You can also buy levels if you have enough points. I don’t usually spend money on games but I did for this one! I would like to see other IAssociate games in the future and/or more levels added. Great job to ticbiyts! Liz
An addictive game!
by Ejgilbert on 2019/05/22 09:35
This game makes words more fun again. It forces me to think even when I don’t want to. Sometimes it makes me feel like an idiot, but it’s still fun. Whenever I get stuck, I find myself thinking and thinking about the word or phrase that has me stuck. The stuck word makes my brain go crazy. It nags at my mind until I am forced to keep playing the game until I solve that word. I love it! Keep up the awesome work!

I love to play it all the time. It challenges my mind.
I loved it until......
by ninetailed fox🦊 on 2019/01/29 02:31
I absolutely loved this game until I cleared the board and was told I couldn’t go further because I didn’t score high enough and would have to pay to unlock the next board. I hope they would allow it to be unlocked by winning and not having to pay.
A great little app
by LadyFiberArts on 2018/11/17 00:01
Sometimes the associations are a bit of a stretch, but it’s fun and makes you think.
nostalgic
by sorave554 on 2018/11/06 08:10
the first version of this game came out when I was 14 and I used to love it but stopped playing for a while. i rediscovered it recently and now i’m nearly 24 and i still love this game.
Fun

Good game to keep you thinking. I have a hard time putting it down whenever I play.
Long Term Winner
by PimpernelSmith on 2018/07/18 02:55
This is the 3rd device I’ve played through over the years — one of only two games I’ve found to hold my attention that way! I may stop playing for months, but I always come back —
Very fun
by Kjs 123445 on 2018/03/15 11:51
My 4th/5th grade son and I love this game. I’m a word/logic puzzle person so this is right up my alley. Some of these are tricky-I find myself using guesses and hints more than I thought, then it’s a “duh” moment- I knew that! :) I use an ‘old school’ iPhone 5, so no screen problems here. I’ve had this for months and months, and never had any glitches.
Updates?
by Coolaaron88 on 2018/01/23 05:40
When will this app get actual updates? It’s not resolution independent. Doesn’t support the iPhone X resolution and there are some other issues with this app that are unfortunate because I love this game.

Great game. Habit forming. Will pass time without realizing. Plus you get to learn new words!!!!
More levels!
by Kanutianrocket on 2017/09/05 07:36
More levels more levels more levels!!! My updated review is: MORE LEVELS!!!!!!! I gotta have more levels!!!
iassociate2
by dogguideuser on 2017/08/31 20:22
A game that is challenging yet fun, and totally Voice-Over friendly for blind players.
Not Enough
by TechieTexan on 2017/08/19 02:43
4 or 5 games in and you'll have to purchase additional levels. That is simply not acceptable.
Associate 2
by XtenCM on 2017/08/01 07:33
Love this game but I wish I didn't have to pay to get certain levels.
Fun until you have to drop $20 to keep playing
by katya.the.sneech on 2017/07/17 22:14
I tried this game out a few days ago and loved it. Then I realized I would need to spend at least $20 on tokens to open up enough levels to last even a few more days. Even for a fun game, that price is outrageous.
Wonderful!
by 11ELEVENTHDOCTOR11 on 2017/06/25 18:06
I have played and loved this game for years. It's been one of the few apps that has never been in the possible delete list. I appreciate the reviews that request the games be more completely themed, that would be amazing! However, after all these years I still thoroughly enjoy the game as it is.
Love the game
by Monica12901 on 2017/06/20 11:53
I find it to be great at helping with word association and even spelling.
Fun and addictive
by CR1958 on 2017/05/28 02:22
I really enjoy playing this game, and get my family envolved when they are bored.
Still loving it!!!
by vrodbarbie on 2017/05/26 17:29
Update 2: still playing, probably my favorite app. Looking forward to more puzzles (please) Update: been playing iAssociate for eons (it seems), and I'm still every bit as addicted as ever. Love this game as a relaxing treat. Wish they'd come out with more games and more often....but with two devices I still play everything twice :-)
Fabulous, addictive accessible game!
by Bomonkee on 2017/05/22 20:31
This is a fantastic game. Very accessible with VoiceOver. Devs are wonderful. They readily communicate with me, when I have encountered any problems, and, actually fix them. I haven't had any issues for several versions. It is well worth the price, especially if one buys the full package of tokens.
Challenging
by Skkaul on 2017/05/18 21:29
I enjoy playing but sometimes takes a long time to complete. Started playing this game after it had been out for a few years and wish dome of the old puzzles would be available. Specifically, I remember my daughter playing one about Elvis and another about Christmas and I have never seen either of these available to me.
Saruby
by Saruby213 on 2017/05/02 16:31
Live this app. It's a great brain teaser. I like to play with my son. I only wish they did new levels more often because it's so much fun.
Fun but limited without payment
by TexasFamilyof5 on 2017/04/20 06:45
You can only play some levels for free. The rest require tokens which you have to earn or buy. I haven't figured out how to get a high enough score to get more points or free levels.
All time favorite
by MelThaGeek on 2017/04/11 18:47
Easily one of my favorite games. Makes my brain work
Simple, addicting, and rejuvenating
by J.R. Buckley on 2017/04/10 19:07
This game is fun and great for jump starting your consciousness on those days where you get buried in work and start to feel mind numb and/or bored.
I like this game but purchases do not show up
by Kywood on 2017/04/06 18:43
I can see where this game can be addicting. But I have a problem. I purchased a currency pack 2 days ago and it still has not shown up in the game. No way to send a message except through reviews. Can this be fixed? It is becoming expensive to play. Thousands of points to unlock a level? The only way to get more points is to buy a different level? Really?
GREAT GAME
by File22222 on 2017/03/23 12:17
Love this game. It's fun to play alone or with a group of friends. Everyone I show the game to wants to download it. Give it a try
IAssociate 2
by Apollo455 on 2017/03/19 16:47
Its a great game . Paying .99 for each new level was great, but having to have thousands of tokens for the next levels is ridiculous! You made plenty of money off people the other way. I'm sorry I cannot continue to play this great game.
Great game
by PatDun on 2017/03/16 12:00
Great game
Great Brain Game!
by Rush416 on 2017/03/10 07:08
I've played this for years and really enjoy it! Hoping new levels coming soon ... good way to start my day and get my brain going. Some of the challenges are pretty tough but lots of fun!
Pricey
by >Heather< on 2017/02/28 05:05
I loved the free levels, paid for a few levels, and have watched ads to gain coins. I can&#39;t justify paying .99 for a level every single time. With each update, I was hoping for at least one free level, but nothing. I do enjoy the word association game, but it&#39;s just too costly.
Such an engrossing game!
by LadyKaianne on 2017/02/19 02:11
I am blind, and I found this game thanks to to a friend. I find myself sucked into this game for hours at a time! I highly recommend this game!
Awesome fun
by Jrchel20 on 2017/02/15 03:29
Love the associations, it really makes you think!
Tap Joy
by Jbigunit on 2017/02/12 04:45
This part of the app has not worked in over a year. Don&#39;t display it if you can&#39;t support it. The games are a lot of fun!
Great Game, Great Passtime
by CcjII on 2017/02/09 03:29
I play this game whenever I&#39;m bored, and it cures my boredom with the fun of associating words. I enjoy the challenge and thought that this game brings.
Fabulous
by Fishfriends2 on 2017/02/05 18:09
I love word games and this is the best one I&#39;ve found. Addictive and tons of fun. I wish that there was a way to play levels over again.
Loveeeeeee this game 😍
by Princess KayKay 👑 on 2017/01/11 08:08
It&#39;s such a smart game , very active brain. Sharpening our skills 😩
Great app!
by Mermaid7NC on 2017/01/08 17:58
First, I want to give 5👍🏻 thumbs up👍🏻 to Tidbits Limited for making this app accessible with voiceover, so those with visual impairments are able to play!! Thanks guys!!! I am a Big word game fan. iAssociates was my 1st app download when I purchased my iPhone in 2012. I have been addicted to this game every since. iAssociates is my go to game when I&#39;m bored or waiting in line at a store.
Best Game Ever!
by FaithNchls on 2017/01/04 22:18
I love this game! I anxiously wait for every new level to come out and enjoy solving them, while working my brain and sharpening my word skills.

The game is a lot of fun and a good way to challenge yourself.
Awesome, addictive game
by Wompawompawompa on 2016/12/26 16:34
I love this game! I had the original iAssociate, so this game has been my favorite for many years. It&#39;s fun, addictive and challenging. You can play for just a few minutes or for hours.
Super game

Asks for iTunes password

Played it for years. Delete and download just to to play the levels again.
Problems with golden words
by Kpluard on 2016/11/21 19:38
I love the game but it won&#39;t let me answer the golden bonus words. I type it in and it won&#39;t fill it in. I have to use the hints to fill it in for me.
Frustrated!
by Mandyybabyy74 on 2016/11/21 14:38
I love this game but since the latest update, the majority of the clues are coming up as just &#34;0&#34;. Makes it hard to actually play 😕
Love this game!!!
by Conkealys on 2016/11/07 08:30
This is one of my favorite games to pass the time and exercise my brain a bit. I&#39;ll admit, though, that I do have to cheat sometimes by typing in the letters of the alphabet from a-z to find the word I need!!! But, I actually love that this is even an option (not on the bonus words, though)! I know that&#39;s probably terrible to say but I like that there are options (if you have patience) to help you out when you&#39;re stumped! I also love the fact that they add new titles as often as they do! It&#39;s even a fun family game...my kids love it when I can&#39;t figure out an association and finally stoop to asking THEM! They try to be the first one to guess it right and then gloat when they are the &#39;winner&#39;! :)
A must-have!
by GrodiBOT on 2016/10/29 17:21
This is one on my all-time favorites. It&#39;s challenging, fun, and addictive.
Great Mental Exercise
by Broken Block on 2016/08/19 02:06
While the pattern seems simple in the beginning, each time you get a word correct the pattern expands. This increases the challenge as new ideas must be formed to detect the right answer to complete the puzzle. The theme is for the puzzles can help guide your choices, but it will take effort and research to get all the answers correct in a reasonable time. This is a great fun game and highly recommended. No words were injured in the process of writing this review.
Getting too expensive-
by Ccsb1954 on 2016/08/15 14:35
I&#39;ve played this game for a long time and I really like it - it&#39;s so different from all the other word games out there! But I used to be able to earn scores that allowed me a few choices I didn&#39;t have to buy tokens for. Now there&#39;s nothing like that, so apparently I&#39;m at a standstill on this game if I don&#39;t want to pay.
So addictive and totally accessible with voiceover!
by Mollycita on 2016/07/18 03:12
Once I pick this game up, I can&#39;t seem to put it down again. Even when I&#39;m not playing I still try to figure out the clues in the back of my mind while I&#39;m going about my day. Unlike so many other apps, the free version has plenty of puzzles to keep you busy and thinking for a really long time. I&#39;ve always liked crossword type puzzles, but either there inaccessible to blind players or the clues are so obscure you can never figure them out. In this game though with a little time and effort, eventually you&#39;re able to get it. Best app I&#39;ve downloaded in months! Well done!
My favorite puzzle app!!!!!
by 1234mir1234 on 2016/07/17 18:04
Can&#39;t stop playing. I wish free puzzles would come with updates and it was easier to get tokens to buy puzzles. Most offers give you under 10 tokens, and puzzles cost around 900. 😕
Great fun and voice over accessible too!
by Travis siegel on 2016/07/17 14:01
Loads of fun, good to play when you have a few minutes between other things, or you can spend all day on it if you like, it is frustrating, rewarding, satisfying and sharable all at once just like a good word game should be. I like this one a lot.

It&#39;s buggy and it freezes. Great game though. If it would just work for me.
Great game!
by Mike T Newman on 2016/06/08 16:47
5 bonus hints for completing a level is awesome.
Great Game, Continuous Updates
by JRonk on 2016/06/08 14:12
I&#39;ve been playing this game for years, and they still put out new puzzles every once in a while that are just as good as ever. Five stars for sure!
App STILL quitting despite the newest update
by TruthIsNotAnOpinion on 2016/06/05 16:36
The app began quitting on me after the last update on May 30th and I just got the newest update today, (June 5th) but it&#39;s STILL CRASHING when I try to watch the videos to earn tokens. It either crashes before it goes to the first video or it crashes immediately following the first video. I have had this app for years and have NEVER had it quit for any reason until I updated it on May 30th. I thought that the newest update would fix this issue but apparently IT DID NOT. And when I click the &#34;App Support&#34; button on the App Store download page, it just takes me to the Tic Bits page that advertises the game and tells how to get the app but it does NOT lead to ANY kind of customer support or help. I will continue to give this app a 1 star rating and let everyone know that it is STILL CRASHING since the last TWO updates.
Easy to play and so addictive

Awesome game
by JohnDowling on 2016/05/15 16:58
Great game, I am also very happy to see that you guys are helping with blind folks. I myself am a voice over user, and love this game. Keep up the good work:-)
Fun but expensive
by =D!<3 on 2016/05/02 00:10
This game is great it&#39;s intellectually stimulating without being too hard and is Better than most word games out there, however, it&#39;s pretty expensive it&#39;s 99 Cents per puzzle I think that&#39;s a little ridiculous it should be a few for that price especially since some are really short and still cost the same price as a longer one
Awesome
by TereseKG22 on 2016/04/08 06:02
I am so happy that I found this game. I have had a lot of trouble with my memory because of some brain injuries, but when I started to play and solve these puzzles, my memory is slowly getting better and better every day. Keep adding more levels, I love a challenge!
Love this game
by Just Litl ol me on 2016/03/21 00:01
Makes my brain work overtime and encourages me think outside the box
I used to play often
by PublishBars on 2016/03/12 18:17
This game is fun but I haven&#39;t played in nearly 2 years because I&#39;m tired of putting money into new levels once points run dry. I don&#39;t like how obtaining new levels is set up because the point system isn&#39;t always realistic and steers you more into buying levels with money which can get expensive. I&#39;d recommend this game to someone who doesn&#39;t mind that though.
Love it!
by Heveyn on 2016/02/29 18:41
What a great way to get the mind thinking. This is a fun game to play with family and friends.
Awesome and addicting
by Taci on 2016/02/24 18:56
I really like this game. It&#39;s fun and not too hard. Would have gave 5 stars if they didn&#39;t charge per level after you beat the free ones. I mean $1 per level is kind of insane I am not going to spend up to $100 dollars playing this game. It&#39;s cool but not that cool.
Mia
by Jam2189 on 2016/02/03 11:42
I really like it. Makes you think. And I&#39;m learning new things while playing. I really like that you hints refill at the beginning of a new level. That moved my 4 stars to 5 stars. :)
Good stuff
by Warchildjt on 2016/01/21 04:25
Enjoyable and challenging
Tokens
by M00die Girl on 2016/01/21 01:14
I love this game and can spend hours playing. It would be nice to earn tokens after completing a level. Buying the tokens is expensive and there aren&#39;t always videos to watch to earn tokens. Thanks!!
Better than crosswords
by Jago27000 on 2015/12/22 00:14
Just wish it wasn&#39;t so expensive to get more games
One of my favorites
by Belles-lettres on 2015/12/11 17:51
I love this app and the puzzles are really fun to do. I just wish there was a way to earn coins other than buying them or using tap joy.
Great game but disappointed in coins
by Annalee. on 2015/12/10 00:05
I&#39;ve had this game since I got my first iPhone. Loved it since day one. However, when they changed the coin earning system to get new levels is when I became most disappointed. The stuff that the website sends you to often doesn&#39;t give you the coins you earn and has turned one of my emails into a folder of pure spam. Luckily I used an unimportant one meant for stuff like that but it is disappointing seeing as I don&#39;t want to pay for more levels.
Fun!
by Pretty Stunning on 2015/12/05 05:31
If you love word/critical thinking games then iAssociate is definitely for you. It can be both relaxing yet challenging at the same time. I highly recommend this game!!!
Love hate relation
by Pickled pickles on 2015/11/30 12:26
Love this game! I really wish that you were rewarded tokens for beating a level though. Other than that it&#39;s a great game!
Great game

Here and there a little buggy but all In all a nice, simple, and fun game.

great game never a problem!
Makes you think
by Sasification on 2015/11/02 22:45
This app is great for relaxing and it makes you think about the answer. They have a variety of levels from music to folklore. I would recommend this to anyone.
Fun game, until you have to pay
by Kay0716 on 2015/10/25 19:02
This game is really fun, but you only get so many free levels until you must pay for more. I completed 6 levels and now I do not have enough points to obtain a new level so if I would like to keep playing I have to keep buying more levels. Sorry but it is not worth 99 cents every day!
Great Brain-Training Game
by LuvsMinis on 2015/10/22 22:28
Love it. Builds vocabulary too. First game I&#39;ve been willing to buy more levels in. Highly recommend it!
Awesome, addictive and challenging
by Nytetears on 2015/10/22 09:51
I just love this game, it really challenges the mind. I actually forget the time while playing. I had to explain to my husband why I didn&#39;t come to bed till 4 am Update: I have to give kudos to the app maker. This game is now accessible to the blind. My husband is thrilled he can play now.
ALMOST a great game!
by Zxsaqhjyfhkj on 2015/10/16 21:11
This game is very fun and entertaining, but I&#39;ve completed 10 levels and I do not have enough points to open anymore levels. I also have only 174 coins and you need 500+ to purchase additional levels. So I have no way of playing this game anymore unless I want to pay for more levels, which I won&#39;t. If the makers of the game would give out more credits or points per words, I would continue to play, but if they don&#39;t I have no choice but to delete this app! Maybe you could give out a free level once a week so we could accumulate more points and coins. That would be great. Thanks.
I associate
by Snuggles333 on 2015/10/11 14:02
Ok game. Not sure what the tokens are for, you never award any! Just finished 2 more games, almost out of accessible games, with no tokens awarded, I guess my playing days are over with I associate.
Mind mining on a higher level playing field
by ladygrey21 on 2015/10/01 05:53
Although still a bit buggy; I can find myself suddenly looking at the outside of the game instead of playing in it; I find myself alternately at a complete loss or almost 95% accuracy, This game baffles my 47 year old significant other, but allows almost enough hints for my 87 year old mom to &#34;get&#34; it. After being with this game for over 4 years; I find myself annoyed that a certain amount of points doesn&#39;t discount the cost of new games. I also think that some of the games are a bit chintzy in the amount of words &amp; associations used. More words, more associations, more for the money or less money or tokens per games that are L or X or XL. I, myself at 56 &amp; an avowed wordsmith, geographical fiend, &amp; trivial pursuits enthusiast; still would like more clues as well as at least get a hint letter for each word in a group of words. All in all, a great challenging game. Fix the bugs, please! JGE the Herbalist
Love It!!!
by Tomman 64 on 2015/09/19 13:46
Game is great. Challenging and fun. My only complaint is that I go thru the levels so quickly that I&#39;m spending a fortune buying additional levels. Would like to see more free levels.
Love it
by heatherbme on 2015/09/15 17:06
Fun and educational
Wish it had more free levels.
by Red822 on 2015/09/07 03:55
They get you hooked and then demand you pay to keep playing. Sure you can get free credits, but who has the time or the patience for that?
Awesome game!
by DrSemprini on 2015/09/05 03:29
I&#39;ve been enjoying this game for years. One of my favorites.
One of the greatest word games
by Braille kid on 2015/08/26 00:22
This app is wonderful, especially for the blind. Everything is labeled clearly using voice over.The only thing about it is that I wish that the new levels didn&#39;t cost so many tokens, and that certain other levelscould be unlocked with fewer points.it truly is a fantastic game, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves word games!
An addictive game!
by Ejgilbert on 2019/05/22 09:35
This game makes words more fun again. It forces me to think even when I don’t want to. Sometimes it makes me feel like an idiot, but it’s still fun. Whenever I get stuck, I find myself thinking and thinking about the word or phrase that has me stuck. The stuck word makes my brain go crazy. It nags at my mind until I am forced to keep playing the game until I solve that word. I love it! Keep up the awesome work!
Very fun
by Kjs 123445 on 2018/03/15 11:51
My 4th/5th grade son and I love this game. I’m a word/logic puzzle person so this is right up my alley. Some of these are tricky-I find myself using guesses and hints more than I thought, then it’s a “duh” moment- I knew that! :) I use an ‘old school’ iPhone 5, so no screen problems here. I’ve had this for months and months, and never had any glitches.
Long Term Winner
by PimpernelSmith on 2018/07/18 02:55
This is the 3rd device I’ve played through over the years — one of only two games I’ve found to hold my attention that way! I may stop playing for months, but I always come back —
Needs work
by Eyeless Fish on 2019/10/24 09:07
This app is really fun. But the accessibility needs work. A blind person can’t possibly be expected to find the word that they need a hint on. Especially if they’re totally blind, as well as when there are a mass of words that have been found. I’m writing this, because I want the app to be better. Keep up the good work☺️
I loved it until......
by ninetailed fox🦊 on 2019/01/29 02:31
I absolutely loved this game until I cleared the board and was told I couldn’t go further because I didn’t score high enough and would have to pay to unlock the next board. I hope they would allow it to be unlocked by winning and not having to pay.
Great game for everyone!
by braille liz on 2019/09/04 14:17
I absolutely love this game and often can’t put it down. You can also buy levels if you have enough points. I don’t usually spend money on games but I did for this one! I would like to see other IAssociate games in the future and/or more levels added. Great job to ticbiyts! Liz
nostalgic
by sorave554 on 2018/11/06 08:10
the first version of this game came out when I was 14 and I used to love it but stopped playing for a while. i rediscovered it recently and now i’m nearly 24 and i still love this game.

Good game to keep you thinking. I have a hard time putting it down whenever I play.
A great little app
by LadyFiberArts on 2018/11/17 00:01
Sometimes the associations are a bit of a stretch, but it’s fun and makes you think.
Great concept, but...
by Dave___76 on 2020/01/05 17:42
I understand they need to make money, but 4 puzzles and then paying for each new puzzle. Make the whole app available for a single price or have ads. Also, not every word has a clue, which really help.
Love it!
by Ms.Upset on 2019/11/26 03:10
I love it so far. Haven’t bought any app purchases yet though.
Less monetizing!!!

This game would be great if it didn’t require you to pay for more levels

Updates?
by Coolaaron88 on 2018/01/23 05:40
When will this app get actual updates? It’s not resolution independent. Doesn’t support the iPhone X resolution and there are some other issues with this app that are unfortunate because I love this game.
Not Enough
by TechieTexan on 2017/08/19 02:43
4 or 5 games in and you&#39;ll have to purchase additional levels. That is simply not acceptable.

by Chicago1999+ever on 2019/09/25 03:37
Highly addictive game. And Tons! of fun!!!
A fantastic, if Somewhat Addictive Game!
by RachaelWarke on 2014/07/02 10:42
I always knew I&#39;d love this game. It makes you think, and not necessarily in all the obvious ways. And if you get stuck, there are plenty of ways to figure most things out. The only trouble I had with it was that it used to be difficult to play with VoiceOver. But the developers heard our requests for accessibility, and totally outdid themselves! This has become one of the most accessible games I have ever played! And one of the most fun! Now, the only problem I have is remembering that I still have to do my daily tasks! Like cooking for my family! They insist! But I hurry, so I can go play some more! This is the best example I have ever seen of a developer who listens and works with players to get the best possible app. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Thank you Ticbits!
Occasionally cheesy clues and hard to get tokens, but highly addictive
by Chadow72 on 2014/06/23 04:54
Hi there. I actually found out about this game through an app called iBlink Radio, which had tutorials in podcast form of games accessible to blind people. While the game can be a bit cumbersome to scroll through, I was able to catch on. Sometimes I think the clues are a bit on the cheesy side and have occasionally not even made sense with the word in question. I also wish it was a bit easier to get tokens, such as maybe a prompt to watch a commercial video. Personally, I think it should be 250 tokens per video. I would rather have that then have to go through a bunch of websites, even if it did mean Ernie more tokens. That being said, I have to admit I&#39;m very addicted to this game. Just want to get frustrated with it, I get a few other words and things start to flow again. It&#39;s one of those games you can&#39;t put down. Sorry for any typos in this message. I&#39;m doing this through dictation and occasionally voice over won&#39;t let me edit a text field. Not sure why. In any case, great game overall. Keep up the good work.
Love this game!!!
by Conkealys on 2016/11/07 08:30
This is one of my favorite games to pass the time and exercise my brain a bit. I&#39;ll admit, though, that I do have to cheat sometimes by typing in the letters of the alphabet from a-z to find the word I need!!! But, I actually love that this is even an option (not on the bonus words, though)! I know that&#39;s probably terrible to say but I like that there are options (if you have patience) to help you out when you&#39;re stumped! I also love the fact that they add new titles as often as they do! It&#39;s even a fun family game...my kids love it when I can&#39;t figure out an association and finally stoop to asking THEM! They try to be the first one to guess it right and then gloat when they are the &#39;winner&#39;! :)
Annoyingly obstinate
by 9robins on 2015/01/19 12:43
When I play a word association game, I&#39;m looking for a linguistic adventure that will surprise me with new connections among words &amp; the ideas they refer to. When I&#39;m done playing, I want to feel increased respect for the supple, expansive language that is English. I do NOT want to run up repeatedly against Proper Names--titles of movies or popular songs vaguely relevant to the theme of the level, or the names of celebrities connected with such entertainment. Allowing any kind of proper name changes the game&#39;s nature--it&#39;s no longer a WORD association challenge; now it&#39;s a trivia quiz. Even worse, the shallow-brained techies who build these apps have (it seems) no knowledge of history or science or art or music, so the only trivia they quiz us on is an area I find shallow, boring, &amp; not worth following--i.e., the world of entertainment celebrities. Let&#39;s hope that the makers of this app will change the game plan to eliminate the trivia quizzes &amp; come out with a gratifyingly challenging association game.
Great opportunity, but falls short
by iw8 on 2011/12/23 01:33
This game has the ability to really be an amazingly fun and thought provoking game, but ultimately falls short. I think the idea of having a theme, like food for example, and then from there it branches off into general types of foods (lunch, dinner, Asian, fast food, etc.) and from there it would narrow it down more and more the farther out from the center you go. The way it goes now you go from food to steak, beef, burgers, meat, fries, pizza... But not fish or vegetables or sandwich... Just seems completely random. And you do branch out with lunch and dinner... But then breakfast connects between them and doesn&#39;t connect with food. It seems ver haphazard and illogical. Another thing is to think about combinations occur... Most of the time it&#39;s pretty good, like combining Japanese and pasta, you get noodles. That&#39;s cool and I enjoy thinking of &#34;ok what&#39;s half way between these things&#34; but then I get a combination of Japanese and food... And it&#39;s Chinese? That doesn&#39;t make as much sense. One final thing is to keep focus! If the puzzle is about natural disasters... Why am I all of a sudden getting words like skin and callus? Sorry for the long winded review, and I hope someone at the studio reads this... This could be such a great fun app, just needs some tweaks and focus to make it more intuitive and less guess-and-check.
Increasing disappointment
by acro47 on 2011/08/23 11:36
I loved this game for the first year. In fact the first iAssociate was the best, super fun and good logical thinking. I am not enjoying iAssociate 2 as much; it&#39;s glitzier but the word associations on some of the newer levels are a ridiculous stretch as to how they are connected. And are we seeing the same word associations repeated because they are running out of ideas? I&#39;ve seen the Drink-Martini-James Bond-Secret Agent connection in 5-6 games. Finally, a dollar for every level? I&#39;ve already spent over $12 and there must be at least another 15 out there. Fred &amp; Nik Wahrman, I don&#39;t resent your making money, but I disagree with your business model. It isn&#39;t fair to those of us who have been with you since 2009 when there were only 7-8 reviews on the apps page. Give us a good, meaty package for $3-$4 and periodic free updates as the other devs do. Thanks.
Addicting word game
by Reaction Formation on 2010/06/20 15:11
I agree with the below reviewers that .99 for maybe a level pack of three would be much nicer. I, and I&#39;m sure many others, would snatch them up without a second thought. Anyway, the game itself is great. After discovering iassociate 2 the day it was released, I immediately bought iassociate 1 to support the dev but I guess it was kind of a waste since the old levels are coming on here now. I should have seen it coming though. I have two suggestions/requests. The first is a Reset button for when you finish a level, so I can let my friends play a good level like the food one once I finish it. The score unlocking new levels thing could still work: just have each level display a finished high score and go with that to unlock. The other request is a new icon. I loved the icon on the first iassociate. It caught your eye and was rememberable (I guess that would make it &#34;iconic&#34;). The associate 2 icon does not stand out at all and is immediately forgettable. Even a recolor/ slight modification of the old icon would work great. Keep up the good work on this great game. It&#39;s truly a hidden gem in the app store.
A great new version to an addicting original...
by James P. Sullivan on 2010/06/02 01:08
This is a great program. It&#39;s worth the regular price of $4 if the developer continues to add content as he has already promised. I believe a new version with another 50% more levels is on the way and has been or is about to be submitted for approval. All of my minor problems with the orignal version have been addressed and it&#39;s just a lot of fun if you like word games. If you want to cancel a hint after tapping it, tap the hint circle again and it will close. You won&#39;t be charged for the hint unless you pick a word to have it fill in a letter. It&#39;s something that minimizes the interface, but should be mentioned in the tutorial. If you like word games, this is a winner!
I love this game more than I ought to
by C'est moi, cherie on 2010/06/07 03:02
This game is awesome - so glad I stumbled upon the promotional free download, but I&#39;ve been salivating over iAssociate v. 1 for so long that I probably would have paid for it anyway. Now to solve all the puzzles! So much fun, and good for my brain. My next purchase will be v. 1! This kind of game is similar to what my brother, sister, and I like to play with each other - one of us will say a word and the next person says a related word and you try to eventually get back to the original word. One time my sister and I played for two hours - it was great fun trying to guess where the other person was going to take the line of thinking.
STILL no multi-tasking - Deleted
by DJ Rizzo on 2011/05/20 18:21
Below is my last review that goes into more detail. I&#39;m tired of waiting for the developer to get on the ball and add multi-tasking so I just deleted the app from my iPhone. If you don&#39;t mind an annoying loading &amp; &#34;tap to continue&#34; screen every single time you leave &amp; return to the app, then go for it. I for one hate it and am done with it. Last review: A nice brain exercise that&#39;s easy to get caught up in. With two big negatives: 1) The extra packs are pricey at 99¢ each; plus I should not have to see ads before or after playing a level I bought. 2) Yet again the latest update does not support multi-tasking in iOS 4. There have been at least 5 or 6 updates to this app since Apple created multi-tasking! The developer(s) has had months to make this happen!! What makes it worse is that every time you launch the app there is an annoying splash screen with &#34;tap to continue&#34; screen (oh, sometimes an ad, too). Really?? Why do I need to tap to continue? The game already remembers where I left off, how hard can it be to make it resume on the puzzle screen instead of making me view a lame &#34;tap to continue&#34; screen? I love this game but until they true multi-tasking I won&#39;t buy another puzzle.
App STILL quitting despite the newest update
by TruthIsNotAnOpinion on 2016/06/05 16:36
The app began quitting on me after the last update on May 30th and I just got the newest update today, (June 5th) but it&#39;s STILL CRASHING when I try to watch the videos to earn tokens. It either crashes before it goes to the first video or it crashes immediately following the first video. I have had this app for years and have NEVER had it quit for any reason until I updated it on May 30th. I thought that the newest update would fix this issue but apparently IT DID NOT. And when I click the &#34;App Support&#34; button on the App Store download page, it just takes me to the Tic Bits page that advertises the game and tells how to get the app but it does NOT lead to ANY kind of customer support or help. I will continue to give this app a 1 star rating and let everyone know that it is STILL CRASHING since the last TWO updates.
Excellent
by MamaWildside on 2013/11/24 02:49
Really fun to play. Usually wind up trying to figure out some of the words as a family, and have played on car trips. Entertaining and makes you think. Wish that the app would show you your score at the level complete, and I don&#39;t understand why so many of the levels show the score as N/A of N/A. I don&#39;t see why levels would not be applicable to your overall points. I definitely like that this version does not make you retype the entire word once you have some of the letters. That is much easier, particularly since it is so easy to hit the wrong letter on a smartphone!
Love it!! And the levels are free!!
by Queenie 851208 on 2011/12/02 09:38
Absolutely love this game!! Can&#39;t put it down it&#39;s so addictive!!! It&#39;s so much fun to get people around you involved in playing too! I don&#39;t know what I&#39;m going to do when I have finished all the levels! And people, the levels are free, you can download different apps to earns tokens and you buy the levels with your tokens and most of the apps are free too! When you click on levels and it shows you at the bottom to press here to go to token store, you just pick the free apps download them and you use those tokens to buy the levels.. So really it&#39;s not a scam!!!!!! It&#39;s awesome I love it!
Yes...Addicting...Annoying...Expensive (if you want to play regularly)
by SR_97355 on 2015/02/19 19:06
I love word association games. Frequently, this game requires out of the box thinking to come up with an answer. I&#39;m not up on current Hollywood events &amp; people--the last movie I saw in a theater was &#34;National Treasure&#34; (#1) &amp; that was only because the tickets were a gift. I like movies, I just don&#39;t like paying what it costs at theaters. That goes for my phone&#39;s entertainment apps as well. I find the game challenging. Imagine how surprised &amp; pleased I was to find that after avoiding the game for many months--I had some how accrued enough tokens to buy some additional levels to play! I have no problems (yet) running this game on my OLD iPhone 4...hopefully this will continue.
Great game!
by Bertrand du Guesclin on 2011/09/17 23:15
To answer to other comments, I have completed more than 35 puzzles since I got this game and never spent a dime. I got all the levels free with tokens and lately it&#39;s been much easier to accumulate them. First you can get a lot more tokens with some apps and also after you are directed to the App store and you open this app again you are back at the same page so you can download more. Also I think you can download the same app twice and you still get the tokens. Not sure anout that though. Overall a excellent game!
Needs fixing
by Grampie Rabbit on 2014/05/03 05:14
It said &#34;pet&#34; and had 2 choices, each 3 letters. I chose dog and cat. It liked both, the boxes turned green. Then it gave me two more choices each 5 letters. The clue for one was &#34;likes cheese&#34;, and for the other &#34;Disney character&#34;. I put in Pluto and mouse. It liked Pluto; that box turned green. Another empty box opened with 2 words. The clue was &#34;Disney character&#34; with 6 and 5 ltrs. I put in Mickey Mouse. It liked that; the box turned green. I could not think of anything to put in the remaining box so I pressed &#34;hint&#34;. It gave me an &#34;m&#34;. I tried mouse again. It didn&#39;t like that. I repeated this process several times and it put &#34;Mouse&#34; in the box but did not turn it green. The screen only showed hints - nothing else worked. There is something wrong with this game. I do not recommend this game. Perhaps they will fix it and then maybe it will make sense.
So addictive and totally accessible with voiceover!
by Mollycita on 2016/07/18 03:12
Once I pick this game up, I can&#39;t seem to put it down again. Even when I&#39;m not playing I still try to figure out the clues in the back of my mind while I&#39;m going about my day. Unlike so many other apps, the free version has plenty of puzzles to keep you busy and thinking for a really long time. I&#39;ve always liked crossword type puzzles, but either there inaccessible to blind players or the clues are so obscure you can never figure them out. In this game though with a little time and effort, eventually you&#39;re able to get it. Best app I&#39;ve downloaded in months! Well done!
Great Game
by GirlAtHome22 on 2013/03/21 01:34
I love this game. I came across it accidentally, and so happy I did. 2 is much better than the other version. My only complaints are I wish there were more specific themes IE specific TV shows maybe something like a CSI special where everything is related to the shows. The option to buy a board Of a particular person like Taylor Swift would be very appealing to me! It could branch out with song titles, album release years, favorite number, magazine covers etc... Just really specific things related to Taylor Swift! I am completely obsessed with this game! I hope to see Taylor Swift and more TV show specific options in the near future!
Glad to have it! :)
by funny man123453256 on 2011/07/18 07:18
I rate this game a four star game because it&#39;s a great game to pass time if u r in the car ( not recommended for people with car sickness problems ) but my problem with it is when there that one time where you are either out of hints or you are on a golden bonus word where you can&#39;t use hints and you just can&#39;t figure it out and u are stuck on it for a while although It&#39;s a good game for all ages ( depending on the question and your opinion on the game ) but it tests your skills with the way of the brain [tests your knowledge] so yeah thanks for making this app me and members of my family like to play it thanks again
Love it but...
by RoseBisou5 on 2010/06/18 16:26
Fantastic game. Love it overall and really like the upgrades to the format, BUT... $1 for EACH additional level?!? Um.. No. -1 Star for that. When I purchased the original iAssociate, I paid $1.99 and it had a good many levels. Why would I then pay $1 PER LEVEL for additional ones? I love the game, and would hapily pay $1 for a PACK of new levelS... As in more than ONE. 5 levels for $1 would be fine, so long as they weren&#39;t super short or small. ** And FYI- the levels that you can add for $1, you can download individually as a little app of it&#39;s own, for FREE. Do a search in the app store for &#34;word association&#34; and it will pull them up for you to download. Free! Lol
Iassociate 2
by Mvt1269 on 2010/06/24 12:24
Ok Iassociate 2. Is a great improvement over the original game. The new features make it more enjoyable and keeps me from feeling overwhelmed that I&#39;ll never be able to figuire out the word because I can get a hint. The added facebook feature is cool, letting you connect with other players. I felt most of the associations made sense, and were the first or second thing i would think of, which is the point. Obviously the only downfall is it is addicting and needs more levels. Overall great, fun game, never get bored. Awaiting more levels.
Best game on my iPhone!
by Granny Dorothy on 2010/11/17 02:03
I absolutely love this game! It is easy to play for a few minutes or for hours...LOL. I also find it stretches my mind and since I am a Granny it help me keep the brain cells exercised. I agree that it would be great to just open up to the game instead of having to see the title screen. Looking forward to purchasing more levels. Please keep the cost of new levels at 99 cents - A free new level every once in awhile would be a great bonus. Thanks for creating a great game and adding new puzzles to solve!
My interest in the game died quickly..
by shortCipherB on 2010/06/05 12:16
once i learned how to cheat it. I hate to spoil it for those of you that enjoy it, but hopefully what I&#39;m going to say will result in a more challenging version of the game in a future update... You can simply keep guessing at the next letter of the word without penalty until it is revealed. This approach seems more appealing than wasting a hint. So I keep finding myself doing this on words that I&#39;m stuck on. Once I realized this, the game went from being challenging and interesting to rather boring very quickly. Maybe some of you have more will power than I do. Kudos to you. I&#39;ll take the freebies if they&#39;re available in a pinch.
Mind mining on a higher level playing field
by ladygrey21 on 2015/10/01 05:53
Although still a bit buggy; I can find myself suddenly looking at the outside of the game instead of playing in it; I find myself alternately at a complete loss or almost 95% accuracy, This game baffles my 47 year old significant other, but allows almost enough hints for my 87 year old mom to &#34;get&#34; it. After being with this game for over 4 years; I find myself annoyed that a certain amount of points doesn&#39;t discount the cost of new games. I also think that some of the games are a bit chintzy in the amount of words &amp; associations used. More words, more associations, more for the money or less money or tokens per games that are L or X or XL. I, myself at 56 &amp; an avowed wordsmith, geographical fiend, &amp; trivial pursuits enthusiast; still would like more clues as well as at least get a hint letter for each word in a group of words. All in all, a great challenging game. Fix the bugs, please! JGE the Herbalist
Soso usex ok game
by cherrybombc2 on 2013/07/01 07:55
It&#39;s not cool that the letter count disappears when you click into the word field to enter. Also the hint box at the top of the screen isn&#39;t obvious and could be called out with greater visual clarity. Biggest complaint is the subject matter of level 2. Just as I successfully complete level 1 I&#39;m rewarded with a web of insensitive word clues and base human monikers for people with mental health issues. I closed the app and didn&#39;t reopen again for 3 weeks. After completing a few words I opened other webs but I&#39;m so offended I&#39;m deleting the app. In this world we don&#39;t need these things. You should remove the Crazy web. It&#39;s in extremely bad taste.
Awesome game, but where are my free tokens?
by feverspell on 2012/10/09 13:54
If you are considering this app, stop considering and start downloading! it&#39;s a blast. I absolutely LOVE this game, and I have recommended it to plenty of friends. If you like puzzle/word games you will be hooked in a matter of minutes. It&#39;s great! NOTE TO THE DEVELOPER: The reason I give you 3/5 stars is because of the Token Store. I have tried downloading many of the apps (even some I did not want) just to earn tokens to put toward more levels, but the tokens never show up! I feel like it is false advertising, and makes your app misleading and appear poorly developed. Please fix it so we can keep playing!
very good app
by Eliminate is AWESOME!!!! on 2010/06/04 04:35
this is an awesome app A++ but there are a few things that I would like to see in a future update -move the hint button, please, as it is in the same place as the DONE button for entering your word. I HATE wasting hints (I try to use none at all if possible actually) -ability to reset a puzzle without reinstalling the app - instead of the speed metal being first 1000 players to get 100%, make it time you, either how long you spend per puzzle or how long it is since you start, since people who dont get the app the day it comes out dont have much chance for the speed medal anymore - additional level packs... for 99 cents or maybe in free updates ;-) Overall, a very very good app but it could still use some improvements. This is well worth the money but getting it free is better!!! Thank you for the great app!
Very addicting!
by Bonkosk3330 on 2010/07/26 17:08
I could play this for hours... I just wish it would give hints on the bonus words. Some of them dont make sense. It would also be nice to download more FREE levels!!! I dont want to pay a dollar for every extra level when i know it will only last a day or so until i beat it. Just update the game more &amp; add more levels for free then the game will be worth 5 stars &amp; top on my list! Overall, its a great logic game that really makes you think, and think outside the box. You won&#39;t be sorry you downloaded &amp; tried it... You&#39;ll be hooked!
iAssociate 1 & 2
by SAMARENO on 2012/05/12 16:58
This concept is a great base for a game. Connecting the words and completing the layout is wonderful! The principal of the odd connections between words and phrases is addictive. IA-2 is pretty fun as well. I like that you can add to the letters of the words that you have partially answered. The connections don&#39;t seem quite as fun-convoluted as iA-1. Plus, iA-2 gives you the word if it is close. Hate that and it is a negative. Also, miss the bonus round at the ends of the levels. Thought I saw 2 has it but can&#39;t find it. But, iA-2 game is still a plus. Worth more than the price.
Confused

I really enjoy this game, but I believe it owes me 15,000 tokens. When you win and get a bronze metal for finishing in the top 1000 players for speed as a bonus you are supposed to get 1000 tokens. I know I didn&#39;t get in the last bronze game I won because my balance is 526 tokens. I have won 15 games in the bronze category and have never had nearly enough tokens to add to that amount. I sent a message thru Facebook but no reply from them yet. I have no other way to contact them. Now I&#39;m adding to review. You don&#39;t win tokens, you get points. What good are points. You need tokens or money to get more games and you have to buy tokens. No way to win them. What a rip off. 80 plus game at a dollar each. WOW!!!
Entertaining, thoughtful game
by Brina cat on 2013/06/30 21:45
A great way to pass the time. The games will make you think, and occasionally pause to look something up. You do need to purchase many of the levels - each may take an hour or so to play, I suppose if you played right through, but you are able to earn tokens by watching ads, if you don&#39;t want to pay outright. This has been my go to game when I have a few minutes to spare lately.

Great concept, but...
by Dave___76 on 2020/01/05 17:42
I understand they need to make money, but 4 puzzles and then paying for each new puzzle. Make the whole app available for a single price or have ads. Also, not every word has a clue, which really help.
Less monetizing!!!
by Garfiled the cat on 2019/12/25 03:19
This game would be great if it didn’t require you to pay for more levels
Love it!
by Ms.Upset on 2019/11/26 03:10
I love it so far. Haven’t bought any app purchases yet though.
Needs work
by Eyeless Fish on 2019/10/24 09:07
This app is really fun. But the accessibility needs work. A blind person can’t possibly be expected to find the word that they need a hint on. Especially if they’re totally blind, as well as when there are a mass of words that have been found. I’m writing this, because I want the app to be better. Keep up the good work☺️

by Chicago1999+ever on 2019/09/25 03:37
Highly addictive game. And Tons! of fun!!!
Great game for everyone!
by braille liz on 2019/09/04 14:17
I absolutely love this game and often can’t put it down. You can also buy levels if you have enough points. I don’t usually spend money on games but I did for this one! I would like to see other IAssociate games in the future and/or more levels added. Great job to ticbiyts! Liz
An addictive game!
by Ejgilbert on 2019/05/22 09:35
This game makes words more fun again. It forces me to think even when I don’t want to. Sometimes it makes me feel like an idiot, but it’s still fun. Whenever I get stuck, I find myself thinking and thinking about the word or phrase that has me stuck. The stuck word makes my brain go crazy. It nags at my mind until I am forced to keep playing the game until I solve that word. I love it! Keep up the awesome work!

I love to play it all the time. It challenges my mind.
I loved it until......
by ninetailed fox🦊 on 2019/01/29 02:31
I absolutely loved this game until I cleared the board and was told I couldn’t go further because I didn’t score high enough and would have to pay to unlock the next board. I hope they would allow it to be unlocked by winning and not having to pay.
A great little app
by LadyFiberArts on 2018/11/17 00:01
Sometimes the associations are a bit of a stretch, but it’s fun and makes you think.
nostalgic
by sorave554 on 2018/11/06 08:10
the first version of this game came out when I was 14 and I used to love it but stopped playing for a while. i rediscovered it recently and now i’m nearly 24 and i still love this game.
Fun
by Mmadisonn hh on 2018/08/23 16:46

Good game to keep you thinking. I have a hard time putting it down whenever I play.
Long Term Winner
by PimpernelSmith on 2018/07/18 02:55
This is the 3rd device I’ve played through over the years — one of only two games I’ve found to hold my attention that way! I may stop playing for months, but I always come back —
Very fun
by Kjs 123445 on 2018/03/15 11:51
My 4th/5th grade son and I love this game. I’m a word/logic puzzle person so this is right up my alley. Some of these are tricky-I find myself using guesses and hints more than I thought, then it’s a “duh” moment- I knew that! :) I use an ‘old school’ iPhone 5, so no screen problems here. I’ve had this for months and months, and never had any glitches.
Updates?
by Coolaaron88 on 2018/01/23 05:40
When will this app get actual updates? It’s not resolution independent. Doesn’t support the iPhone X resolution and there are some other issues with this app that are unfortunate because I love this game.

Great game. Habit forming. Will pass time without realizing. Plus you get to learn new words!!!!
More levels!
by Kanutianrocket on 2017/09/05 07:36
More levels more levels more levels!!! My updated review is: MORE LEVELS!!!!!!! I gotta have more levels!!!
iassociate2
by dogguideuser on 2017/08/31 20:22
A game that is challenging yet fun, and totally Voice-Over friendly for blind players.
Not Enough
by TechieTexan on 2017/08/19 02:43
4 or 5 games in and you&#39;ll have to purchase additional levels. That is simply not acceptable.
Associate 2
by XtenCM on 2017/08/01 07:33
Love this game but I wish I didn&#39;t have to pay to get certain levels.
Fun until you have to drop $20 to keep playing
by katya.the.sneech on 2017/07/17 22:14
I tried this game out a few days ago and loved it. Then I realized I would need to spend at least $20 on tokens to open up enough levels to last even a few more days. Even for a fun game, that price is outrageous.
Wonderful!
by 11ELEVENTHDOCTOR11 on 2017/06/25 18:06
I have played and loved this game for years. It&#39;s been one of the few apps that has never been in the possible delete list. I appreciate the reviews that request the games be more completely themed, that would be amazing! However, after all these years I still thoroughly enjoy the game as it is.
Love the game
by Monica12901 on 2017/06/20 11:53
I find it to be great at helping with word association and even spelling.
Fun and addictive
by CR1958 on 2017/05/28 02:22
I really enjoy playing this game, and get my family envolved when they are bored.
Still loving it!!!
by vrodbarbie on 2017/05/26 17:29
Update 2: still playing, probably my favorite app. Looking forward to more puzzles (please) Update: been playing iAssociate for eons (it seems), and I&#39;m still every bit as addicted as ever. Love this game as a relaxing treat. Wish they&#39;d come out with more games and more often....but with two devices I still play everything twice :-)
Fabulous, addictive accessible game!
by Bomonkee on 2017/05/22 20:31
This is a fantastic game. Very accessible with VoiceOver. Devs are wonderful. They readily communicate with me, when I have encountered any problems, and, actually fix them. I haven&#39;t had any issues for several versions. It is well worth the price, especially if one buys the full package of tokens.
Challenging
by Skkaul on 2017/05/18 21:29
I enjoy playing but sometimes takes a long time to complete. Started playing this game after it had been out for a few years and wish dome of the old puzzles would be available. Specifically, I remember my daughter playing one about Elvis and another about Christmas and I have never seen either of these available to me.
Saruby
by Saruby213 on 2017/05/02 16:31
Live this app. It&#39;s a great brain teaser. I like to play with my son. I only wish they did new levels more often because it&#39;s so much fun.
Fun but limited without payment
by TexasFamilyof5 on 2017/04/20 06:45
You can only play some levels for free. The rest require tokens which you have to earn or buy. I haven&#39;t figured out how to get a high enough score to get more points or free levels.
All time favorite
by MelThaGeek on 2017/04/11 18:47
Easily one of my favorite games. Makes my brain work
Simple, addicting, and rejuvenating
by J.R. Buckley on 2017/04/10 19:07
This game is fun and great for jump starting your consciousness on those days where you get buried in work and start to feel mind numb and/or bored.
I like this game but purchases do not show up
by Kywood on 2017/04/06 18:43
I can see where this game can be addicting. But I have a problem. I purchased a currency pack 2 days ago and it still has not shown up in the game. No way to send a message except through reviews. Can this be fixed? It is becoming expensive to play. Thousands of points to unlock a level? The only way to get more points is to buy a different level? Really?
GREAT GAME
by File22222 on 2017/03/23 12:17
Love this game. It&#39;s fun to play alone or with a group of friends. Everyone I show the game to wants to download it. Give it a try
IAssociate 2
by Apollo455 on 2017/03/19 16:47
Its a great game . Paying .99 for each new level was great, but having to have thousands of tokens for the next levels is ridiculous! You made plenty of money off people the other way. I&#39;m sorry I cannot continue to play this great game.
Great game
by PatDun on 2017/03/16 12:00
Great game
Great Brain Game!
by Rush416 on 2017/03/10 07:08
I&#39;ve played this for years and really enjoy it! Hoping new levels coming soon ... good way to start my day and get my brain going. Some of the challenges are pretty tough but lots of fun!
Pricey
by >Heather< on 2017/02/28 05:05
I loved the free levels, paid for a few levels, and have watched ads to gain coins. I can&#39;t justify paying .99 for a level every single time. With each update, I was hoping for at least one free level, but nothing. I do enjoy the word association game, but it&#39;s just too costly.
Such an engrossing game!
by LadyKaianne on 2017/02/19 02:11
I am blind, and I found this game thanks to to a friend. I find myself sucked into this game for hours at a time! I highly recommend this game!
Awesome fun
by Jrchel20 on 2017/02/15 03:29
Love the associations, it really makes you think!
Tap Joy
by Jbigunit on 2017/02/12 04:45
This part of the app has not worked in over a year. Don&#39;t display it if you can&#39;t support it. The games are a lot of fun!
Great Game, Great Passtime
by CcjII on 2017/02/09 03:29
I play this game whenever I&#39;m bored, and it cures my boredom with the fun of associating words. I enjoy the challenge and thought that this game brings.
Fabulous
by Fishfriends2 on 2017/02/05 18:09
I love word games and this is the best one I&#39;ve found. Addictive and tons of fun. I wish that there was a way to play levels over again.
Loveeeeeee this game 😍
by Princess KayKay 👑 on 2017/01/11 08:08
It&#39;s such a smart game , very active brain. Sharpening our skills 😩
Great app!
by Mermaid7NC on 2017/01/08 17:58
First, I want to give 5👍🏻 thumbs up👍🏻 to Tidbits Limited for making this app accessible with voiceover, so those with visual impairments are able to play!! Thanks guys!!! I am a Big word game fan. iAssociates was my 1st app download when I purchased my iPhone in 2012. I have been addicted to this game every since. iAssociates is my go to game when I&#39;m bored or waiting in line at a store.
Best Game Ever!
by FaithNchls on 2017/01/04 22:18
I love this game! I anxiously wait for every new level to come out and enjoy solving them, while working my brain and sharpening my word skills.
Never Gets Old

The game is a lot of fun and a good way to challenge yourself.
Awesome, addictive game
by Wompawompawompa on 2016/12/26 16:34
I love this game! I had the original iAssociate, so this game has been my favorite for many years. It&#39;s fun, addictive and challenging. You can play for just a few minutes or for hours.
Super game

Asks for iTunes password

Played it for years. Delete and download just to to play the levels again.
Problems with golden words
by Kpluard on 2016/11/21 19:38
I love the game but it won&#39;t let me answer the golden bonus words. I type it in and it won&#39;t fill it in. I have to use the hints to fill it in for me.
Frustrated!
by Mandyybabyy74 on 2016/11/21 14:38
I love this game but since the latest update, the majority of the clues are coming up as just &#34;0&#34;. Makes it hard to actually play 😕
Love this game!!!
by Conkealys on 2016/11/07 08:30
This is one of my favorite games to pass the time and exercise my brain a bit. I&#39;ll admit, though, that I do have to cheat sometimes by typing in the letters of the alphabet from a-z to find the word I need!!! But, I actually love that this is even an option (not on the bonus words, though)! I know that&#39;s probably terrible to say but I like that there are options (if you have patience) to help you out when you&#39;re stumped! I also love the fact that they add new titles as often as they do! It&#39;s even a fun family game...my kids love it when I can&#39;t figure out an association and finally stoop to asking THEM! They try to be the first one to guess it right and then gloat when they are the &#39;winner&#39;! :)
A must-have!
by GrodiBOT on 2016/10/29 17:21
This is one on my all-time favorites. It&#39;s challenging, fun, and addictive.
Great Mental Exercise
by Broken Block on 2016/08/19 02:06
While the pattern seems simple in the beginning, each time you get a word correct the pattern expands. This increases the challenge as new ideas must be formed to detect the right answer to complete the puzzle. The theme is for the puzzles can help guide your choices, but it will take effort and research to get all the answers correct in a reasonable time. This is a great fun game and highly recommended. No words were injured in the process of writing this review.
Getting too expensive-
by Ccsb1954 on 2016/08/15 14:35
I&#39;ve played this game for a long time and I really like it - it&#39;s so different from all the other word games out there! But I used to be able to earn scores that allowed me a few choices I didn&#39;t have to buy tokens for. Now there&#39;s nothing like that, so apparently I&#39;m at a standstill on this game if I don&#39;t want to pay.
So addictive and totally accessible with voiceover!
by Mollycita on 2016/07/18 03:12
Once I pick this game up, I can&#39;t seem to put it down again. Even when I&#39;m not playing I still try to figure out the clues in the back of my mind while I&#39;m going about my day. Unlike so many other apps, the free version has plenty of puzzles to keep you busy and thinking for a really long time. I&#39;ve always liked crossword type puzzles, but either there inaccessible to blind players or the clues are so obscure you can never figure them out. In this game though with a little time and effort, eventually you&#39;re able to get it. Best app I&#39;ve downloaded in months! Well done!
My favorite puzzle app!!!!!
by 1234mir1234 on 2016/07/17 18:04
Can&#39;t stop playing. I wish free puzzles would come with updates and it was easier to get tokens to buy puzzles. Most offers give you under 10 tokens, and puzzles cost around 900. 😕
Great fun and voice over accessible too!
by Travis siegel on 2016/07/17 14:01
Loads of fun, good to play when you have a few minutes between other things, or you can spend all day on it if you like, it is frustrating, rewarding, satisfying and sharable all at once just like a good word game should be. I like this one a lot.

Great concept but . . .
by FarklePlayer on 2016/06/23 04:38
It&#39;s buggy and it freezes. Great game though. If it would just work for me.
Great game!
by Mike T Newman on 2016/06/08 16:47
5 bonus hints for completing a level is awesome.
Great Game, Continuous Updates
by JRonk on 2016/06/08 14:12
I&#39;ve been playing this game for years, and they still put out new puzzles every once in a while that are just as good as ever. Five stars for sure!
App STILL quitting despite the newest update
by TruthIsNotAnOpinion on 2016/06/05 16:36
The app began quitting on me after the last update on May 30th and I just got the newest update today, (June 5th) but it&#39;s STILL CRASHING when I try to watch the videos to earn tokens. It either crashes before it goes to the first video or it crashes immediately following the first video. I have had this app for years and have NEVER had it quit for any reason until I updated it on May 30th. I thought that the newest update would fix this issue but apparently IT DID NOT. And when I click the &#34;App Support&#34; button on the App Store download page, it just takes me to the Tic Bits page that advertises the game and tells how to get the app but it does NOT lead to ANY kind of customer support or help. I will continue to give this app a 1 star rating and let everyone know that it is STILL CRASHING since the last TWO updates.
Easy to play and so addictive
by Starburst85 on 2016/06/01 08:03

Awesome game
by JohnDowling on 2016/05/15 16:58
Great game, I am also very happy to see that you guys are helping with blind folks. I myself am a voice over user, and love this game. Keep up the good work:-)
Fun but expensive
by =D!<3 on 2016/05/02 00:10
This game is great it&#39;s intellectually stimulating without being too hard and is Better than most word games out there, however, it&#39;s pretty expensive it&#39;s 99 Cents per puzzle I think that&#39;s a little ridiculous it should be a few for that price especially since some are really short and still cost the same price as a longer one
Awesome
by TereseKG22 on 2016/04/08 06:02
I am so happy that I found this game. I have had a lot of trouble with my memory because of some brain injuries, but when I started to play and solve these puzzles, my memory is slowly getting better and better every day. Keep adding more levels, I love a challenge!
Love this game
by Just Litl ol me on 2016/03/21 00:01
Makes my brain work overtime and encourages me think outside the box
I used to play often
by PublishBars on 2016/03/12 18:17
This game is fun but I haven&#39;t played in nearly 2 years because I&#39;m tired of putting money into new levels once points run dry. I don&#39;t like how obtaining new levels is set up because the point system isn&#39;t always realistic and steers you more into buying levels with money which can get expensive. I&#39;d recommend this game to someone who doesn&#39;t mind that though.
Love it!
by Heveyn on 2016/02/29 18:41
What a great way to get the mind thinking. This is a fun game to play with family and friends.
Awesome and addicting
by Taci on 2016/02/24 18:56
I really like this game. It&#39;s fun and not too hard. Would have gave 5 stars if they didn&#39;t charge per level after you beat the free ones. I mean $1 per level is kind of insane I am not going to spend up to $100 dollars playing this game. It&#39;s cool but not that cool.
Mia
by Jam2189 on 2016/02/03 11:42
I really like it. Makes you think. And I&#39;m learning new things while playing. I really like that you hints refill at the beginning of a new level. That moved my 4 stars to 5 stars. :)
Good stuff
by Warchildjt on 2016/01/21 04:25
Enjoyable and challenging
Tokens
by M00die Girl on 2016/01/21 01:14
I love this game and can spend hours playing. It would be nice to earn tokens after completing a level. Buying the tokens is expensive and there aren&#39;t always videos to watch to earn tokens. Thanks!!
Better than crosswords
by Jago27000 on 2015/12/22 00:14
Just wish it wasn&#39;t so expensive to get more games
One of my favorites
by Belles-lettres on 2015/12/11 17:51
I love this app and the puzzles are really fun to do. I just wish there was a way to earn coins other than buying them or using tap joy.
Great game but disappointed in coins
by Annalee. on 2015/12/10 00:05
I&#39;ve had this game since I got my first iPhone. Loved it since day one. However, when they changed the coin earning system to get new levels is when I became most disappointed. The stuff that the website sends you to often doesn&#39;t give you the coins you earn and has turned one of my emails into a folder of pure spam. Luckily I used an unimportant one meant for stuff like that but it is disappointing seeing as I don&#39;t want to pay for more levels.
Fun!

If you love word/critical thinking games then iAssociate is definitely for you. It can be both relaxing yet challenging at the same time. I highly recommend this game!!!
Love hate relation

Love this game! I really wish that you were rewarded tokens for beating a level though. Other than that it&#39;s a great game!
Great game
by Yagarobe on 2015/11/23 03:25
Here and there a little buggy but all In all a nice, simple, and fun game.

great game never a problem!
Makes you think
by Sasification on 2015/11/02 22:45
This app is great for relaxing and it makes you think about the answer. They have a variety of levels from music to folklore. I would recommend this to anyone.
Fun game, until you have to pay
by Kay0716 on 2015/10/25 19:02
This game is really fun, but you only get so many free levels until you must pay for more. I completed 6 levels and now I do not have enough points to obtain a new level so if I would like to keep playing I have to keep buying more levels. Sorry but it is not worth 99 cents every day!
Great Brain-Training Game
by LuvsMinis on 2015/10/22 22:28
Love it. Builds vocabulary too. First game I&#39;ve been willing to buy more levels in. Highly recommend it!
Awesome, addictive and challenging
by Nytetears on 2015/10/22 09:51
I just love this game, it really challenges the mind. I actually forget the time while playing. I had to explain to my husband why I didn&#39;t come to bed till 4 am Update: I have to give kudos to the app maker. This game is now accessible to the blind. My husband is thrilled he can play now.
ALMOST a great game!
by Zxsaqhjyfhkj on 2015/10/16 21:11
This game is very fun and entertaining, but I&#39;ve completed 10 levels and I do not have enough points to open anymore levels. I also have only 174 coins and you need 500+ to purchase additional levels. So I have no way of playing this game anymore unless I want to pay for more levels, which I won&#39;t. If the makers of the game would give out more credits or points per words, I would continue to play, but if they don&#39;t I have no choice but to delete this app! Maybe you could give out a free level once a week so we could accumulate more points and coins. That would be great. Thanks.
I associate
by Snuggles333 on 2015/10/11 14:02
Ok game. Not sure what the tokens are for, you never award any! Just finished 2 more games, almost out of accessible games, with no tokens awarded, I guess my playing days are over with I associate.
Mind mining on a higher level playing field
by ladygrey21 on 2015/10/01 05:53
Although still a bit buggy; I can find myself suddenly looking at the outside of the game instead of playing in it; I find myself alternately at a complete loss or almost 95% accuracy, This game baffles my 47 year old significant other, but allows almost enough hints for my 87 year old mom to &#34;get&#34; it. After being with this game for over 4 years; I find myself annoyed that a certain amount of points doesn&#39;t discount the cost of new games. I also think that some of the games are a bit chintzy in the amount of words &amp; associations used. More words, more associations, more for the money or less money or tokens per games that are L or X or XL. I, myself at 56 &amp; an avowed wordsmith, geographical fiend, &amp; trivial pursuits enthusiast; still would like more clues as well as at least get a hint letter for each word in a group of words. All in all, a great challenging game. Fix the bugs, please! JGE the Herbalist
Love It!!!
by Tomman 64 on 2015/09/19 13:46
Game is great. Challenging and fun. My only complaint is that I go thru the levels so quickly that I&#39;m spending a fortune buying additional levels. Would like to see more free levels.
Love it
by heatherbme on 2015/09/15 17:06
Fun and educational
Wish it had more free levels.
by Red822 on 2015/09/07 03:55
They get you hooked and then demand you pay to keep playing. Sure you can get free credits, but who has the time or the patience for that?
Awesome game!
by DrSemprini on 2015/09/05 03:29
I&#39;ve been enjoying this game for years. One of my favorites.
One of the greatest word games
by Braille kid on 2015/08/26 00:22
This app is wonderful, especially for the blind. Everything is labeled clearly using voice over.The only thing about it is that I wish that the new levels didn&#39;t cost so many tokens, and that certain other levelscould be unlocked with fewer points.it truly is a fantastic game, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves word games!
An addictive game!
by Ejgilbert on 2019/05/22 09:35
This game makes words more fun again. It forces me to think even when I don’t want to. Sometimes it makes me feel like an idiot, but it’s still fun. Whenever I get stuck, I find myself thinking and thinking about the word or phrase that has me stuck. The stuck word makes my brain go crazy. It nags at my mind until I am forced to keep playing the game until I solve that word. I love it! Keep up the awesome work!
Very fun
by Kjs 123445 on 2018/03/15 11:51
My 4th/5th grade son and I love this game. I’m a word/logic puzzle person so this is right up my alley. Some of these are tricky-I find myself using guesses and hints more than I thought, then it’s a “duh” moment- I knew that! :) I use an ‘old school’ iPhone 5, so no screen problems here. I’ve had this for months and months, and never had any glitches.
Long Term Winner
by PimpernelSmith on 2018/07/18 02:55
This is the 3rd device I’ve played through over the years — one of only two games I’ve found to hold my attention that way! I may stop playing for months, but I always come back —
Needs work
by Eyeless Fish on 2019/10/24 09:07
This app is really fun. But the accessibility needs work. A blind person can’t possibly be expected to find the word that they need a hint on. Especially if they’re totally blind, as well as when there are a mass of words that have been found. I’m writing this, because I want the app to be better. Keep up the good work☺️
I loved it until......
by ninetailed fox🦊 on 2019/01/29 02:31
I absolutely loved this game until I cleared the board and was told I couldn’t go further because I didn’t score high enough and would have to pay to unlock the next board. I hope they would allow it to be unlocked by winning and not having to pay.
Great game for everyone!
by braille liz on 2019/09/04 14:17
I absolutely love this game and often can’t put it down. You can also buy levels if you have enough points. I don’t usually spend money on games but I did for this one! I would like to see other IAssociate games in the future and/or more levels added. Great job to ticbiyts! Liz
nostalgic
by sorave554 on 2018/11/06 08:10
the first version of this game came out when I was 14 and I used to love it but stopped playing for a while. i rediscovered it recently and now i’m nearly 24 and i still love this game.

Good game to keep you thinking. I have a hard time putting it down whenever I play.
A great little app
by LadyFiberArts on 2018/11/17 00:01
Sometimes the associations are a bit of a stretch, but it’s fun and makes you think.
Great concept, but...
by Dave___76 on 2020/01/05 17:42
I understand they need to make money, but 4 puzzles and then paying for each new puzzle. Make the whole app available for a single price or have ads. Also, not every word has a clue, which really help.
Love it!
by Ms.Upset on 2019/11/26 03:10
I love it so far. Haven’t bought any app purchases yet though.

Updates?
by Coolaaron88 on 2018/01/23 05:40
When will this app get actual updates? It’s not resolution independent. Doesn’t support the iPhone X resolution and there are some other issues with this app that are unfortunate because I love this game.
Not Enough
by TechieTexan on 2017/08/19 02:43
4 or 5 games in and you&#39;ll have to purchase additional levels. That is simply not acceptable.

by Chicago1999+ever on 2019/09/25 03:37
Highly addictive game. And Tons! of fun!!!
A fantastic, if Somewhat Addictive Game!
by RachaelWarke on 2014/07/02 10:42
I always knew I&#39;d love this game. It makes you think, and not necessarily in all the obvious ways. And if you get stuck, there are plenty of ways to figure most things out. The only trouble I had with it was that it used to be difficult to play with VoiceOver. But the developers heard our requests for accessibility, and totally outdid themselves! This has become one of the most accessible games I have ever played! And one of the most fun! Now, the only problem I have is remembering that I still have to do my daily tasks! Like cooking for my family! They insist! But I hurry, so I can go play some more! This is the best example I have ever seen of a developer who listens and works with players to get the best possible app. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Thank you Ticbits!
Occasionally cheesy clues and hard to get tokens, but highly addictive
by Chadow72 on 2014/06/23 04:54
Hi there. I actually found out about this game through an app called iBlink Radio, which had tutorials in podcast form of games accessible to blind people. While the game can be a bit cumbersome to scroll through, I was able to catch on. Sometimes I think the clues are a bit on the cheesy side and have occasionally not even made sense with the word in question. I also wish it was a bit easier to get tokens, such as maybe a prompt to watch a commercial video. Personally, I think it should be 250 tokens per video. I would rather have that then have to go through a bunch of websites, even if it did mean Ernie more tokens. That being said, I have to admit I&#39;m very addicted to this game. Just want to get frustrated with it, I get a few other words and things start to flow again. It&#39;s one of those games you can&#39;t put down. Sorry for any typos in this message. I&#39;m doing this through dictation and occasionally voice over won&#39;t let me edit a text field. Not sure why. In any case, great game overall. Keep up the good work.
Love this game!!!
by Conkealys on 2016/11/07 08:30
This is one of my favorite games to pass the time and exercise my brain a bit. I&#39;ll admit, though, that I do have to cheat sometimes by typing in the letters of the alphabet from a-z to find the word I need!!! But, I actually love that this is even an option (not on the bonus words, though)! I know that&#39;s probably terrible to say but I like that there are options (if you have patience) to help you out when you&#39;re stumped! I also love the fact that they add new titles as often as they do! It&#39;s even a fun family game...my kids love it when I can&#39;t figure out an association and finally stoop to asking THEM! They try to be the first one to guess it right and then gloat when they are the &#39;winner&#39;! :)
Annoyingly obstinate
by 9robins on 2015/01/19 12:43
When I play a word association game, I&#39;m looking for a linguistic adventure that will surprise me with new connections among words &amp; the ideas they refer to. When I&#39;m done playing, I want to feel increased respect for the supple, expansive language that is English. I do NOT want to run up repeatedly against Proper Names--titles of movies or popular songs vaguely relevant to the theme of the level, or the names of celebrities connected with such entertainment. Allowing any kind of proper name changes the game&#39;s nature--it&#39;s no longer a WORD association challenge; now it&#39;s a trivia quiz. Even worse, the shallow-brained techies who build these apps have (it seems) no knowledge of history or science or art or music, so the only trivia they quiz us on is an area I find shallow, boring, &amp; not worth following--i.e., the world of entertainment celebrities. Let&#39;s hope that the makers of this app will change the game plan to eliminate the trivia quizzes &amp; come out with a gratifyingly challenging association game.
Great opportunity, but falls short
by iw8 on 2011/12/23 01:33
This game has the ability to really be an amazingly fun and thought provoking game, but ultimately falls short. I think the idea of having a theme, like food for example, and then from there it branches off into general types of foods (lunch, dinner, Asian, fast food, etc.) and from there it would narrow it down more and more the farther out from the center you go. The way it goes now you go from food to steak, beef, burgers, meat, fries, pizza... But not fish or vegetables or sandwich... Just seems completely random. And you do branch out with lunch and dinner... But then breakfast connects between them and doesn&#39;t connect with food. It seems ver haphazard and illogical. Another thing is to think about combinations occur... Most of the time it&#39;s pretty good, like combining Japanese and pasta, you get noodles. That&#39;s cool and I enjoy thinking of &#34;ok what&#39;s half way between these things&#34; but then I get a combination of Japanese and food... And it&#39;s Chinese? That doesn&#39;t make as much sense. One final thing is to keep focus! If the puzzle is about natural disasters... Why am I all of a sudden getting words like skin and callus? Sorry for the long winded review, and I hope someone at the studio reads this... This could be such a great fun app, just needs some tweaks and focus to make it more intuitive and less guess-and-check.
Increasing disappointment
by acro47 on 2011/08/23 11:36
I loved this game for the first year. In fact the first iAssociate was the best, super fun and good logical thinking. I am not enjoying iAssociate 2 as much; it&#39;s glitzier but the word associations on some of the newer levels are a ridiculous stretch as to how they are connected. And are we seeing the same word associations repeated because they are running out of ideas? I&#39;ve seen the Drink-Martini-James Bond-Secret Agent connection in 5-6 games. Finally, a dollar for every level? I&#39;ve already spent over $12 and there must be at least another 15 out there. Fred &amp; Nik Wahrman, I don&#39;t resent your making money, but I disagree with your business model. It isn&#39;t fair to those of us who have been with you since 2009 when there were only 7-8 reviews on the apps page. Give us a good, meaty package for $3-$4 and periodic free updates as the other devs do. Thanks.
Addicting word game
by Reaction Formation on 2010/06/20 15:11
I agree with the below reviewers that .99 for maybe a level pack of three would be much nicer. I, and I&#39;m sure many others, would snatch them up without a second thought. Anyway, the game itself is great. After discovering iassociate 2 the day it was released, I immediately bought iassociate 1 to support the dev but I guess it was kind of a waste since the old levels are coming on here now. I should have seen it coming though. I have two suggestions/requests. The first is a Reset button for when you finish a level, so I can let my friends play a good level like the food one once I finish it. The score unlocking new levels thing could still work: just have each level display a finished high score and go with that to unlock. The other request is a new icon. I loved the icon on the first iassociate. It caught your eye and was rememberable (I guess that would make it &#34;iconic&#34;). The associate 2 icon does not stand out at all and is immediately forgettable. Even a recolor/ slight modification of the old icon would work great. Keep up the good work on this great game. It&#39;s truly a hidden gem in the app store.
A great new version to an addicting original...
by James P. Sullivan on 2010/06/02 01:08
This is a great program. It&#39;s worth the regular price of $4 if the developer continues to add content as he has already promised. I believe a new version with another 50% more levels is on the way and has been or is about to be submitted for approval. All of my minor problems with the orignal version have been addressed and it&#39;s just a lot of fun if you like word games. If you want to cancel a hint after tapping it, tap the hint circle again and it will close. You won&#39;t be charged for the hint unless you pick a word to have it fill in a letter. It&#39;s something that minimizes the interface, but should be mentioned in the tutorial. If you like word games, this is a winner!
I love this game more than I ought to
by C'est moi, cherie on 2010/06/07 03:02
This game is awesome - so glad I stumbled upon the promotional free download, but I&#39;ve been salivating over iAssociate v. 1 for so long that I probably would have paid for it anyway. Now to solve all the puzzles! So much fun, and good for my brain. My next purchase will be v. 1! This kind of game is similar to what my brother, sister, and I like to play with each other - one of us will say a word and the next person says a related word and you try to eventually get back to the original word. One time my sister and I played for two hours - it was great fun trying to guess where the other person was going to take the line of thinking.
STILL no multi-tasking - Deleted
by DJ Rizzo on 2011/05/20 18:21
Below is my last review that goes into more detail. I&#39;m tired of waiting for the developer to get on the ball and add multi-tasking so I just deleted the app from my iPhone. If you don&#39;t mind an annoying loading &amp; &#34;tap to continue&#34; screen every single time you leave &amp; return to the app, then go for it. I for one hate it and am done with it. Last review: A nice brain exercise that&#39;s easy to get caught up in. With two big negatives: 1) The extra packs are pricey at 99¢ each; plus I should not have to see ads before or after playing a level I bought. 2) Yet again the latest update does not support multi-tasking in iOS 4. There have been at least 5 or 6 updates to this app since Apple created multi-tasking! The developer(s) has had months to make this happen!! What makes it worse is that every time you launch the app there is an annoying splash screen with &#34;tap to continue&#34; screen (oh, sometimes an ad, too). Really?? Why do I need to tap to continue? The game already remembers where I left off, how hard can it be to make it resume on the puzzle screen instead of making me view a lame &#34;tap to continue&#34; screen? I love this game but until they true multi-tasking I won&#39;t buy another puzzle.
App STILL quitting despite the newest update
by TruthIsNotAnOpinion on 2016/06/05 16:36
The app began quitting on me after the last update on May 30th and I just got the newest update today, (June 5th) but it&#39;s STILL CRASHING when I try to watch the videos to earn tokens. It either crashes before it goes to the first video or it crashes immediately following the first video. I have had this app for years and have NEVER had it quit for any reason until I updated it on May 30th. I thought that the newest update would fix this issue but apparently IT DID NOT. And when I click the &#34;App Support&#34; button on the App Store download page, it just takes me to the Tic Bits page that advertises the game and tells how to get the app but it does NOT lead to ANY kind of customer support or help. I will continue to give this app a 1 star rating and let everyone know that it is STILL CRASHING since the last TWO updates.
Excellent
by MamaWildside on 2013/11/24 02:49
Really fun to play. Usually wind up trying to figure out some of the words as a family, and have played on car trips. Entertaining and makes you think. Wish that the app would show you your score at the level complete, and I don&#39;t understand why so many of the levels show the score as N/A of N/A. I don&#39;t see why levels would not be applicable to your overall points. I definitely like that this version does not make you retype the entire word once you have some of the letters. That is much easier, particularly since it is so easy to hit the wrong letter on a smartphone!
Love it!! And the levels are free!!
by Queenie 851208 on 2011/12/02 09:38
Absolutely love this game!! Can&#39;t put it down it&#39;s so addictive!!! It&#39;s so much fun to get people around you involved in playing too! I don&#39;t know what I&#39;m going to do when I have finished all the levels! And people, the levels are free, you can download different apps to earns tokens and you buy the levels with your tokens and most of the apps are free too! When you click on levels and it shows you at the bottom to press here to go to token store, you just pick the free apps download them and you use those tokens to buy the levels.. So really it&#39;s not a scam!!!!!! It&#39;s awesome I love it!
Yes...Addicting...Annoying...Expensive (if you want to play regularly)
by SR_97355 on 2015/02/19 19:06
I love word association games. Frequently, this game requires out of the box thinking to come up with an answer. I&#39;m not up on current Hollywood events &amp; people--the last movie I saw in a theater was &#34;National Treasure&#34; (#1) &amp; that was only because the tickets were a gift. I like movies, I just don&#39;t like paying what it costs at theaters. That goes for my phone&#39;s entertainment apps as well. I find the game challenging. Imagine how surprised &amp; pleased I was to find that after avoiding the game for many months--I had some how accrued enough tokens to buy some additional levels to play! I have no problems (yet) running this game on my OLD iPhone 4...hopefully this will continue.
Great game!
by Bertrand du Guesclin on 2011/09/17 23:15
To answer to other comments, I have completed more than 35 puzzles since I got this game and never spent a dime. I got all the levels free with tokens and lately it&#39;s been much easier to accumulate them. First you can get a lot more tokens with some apps and also after you are directed to the App store and you open this app again you are back at the same page so you can download more. Also I think you can download the same app twice and you still get the tokens. Not sure anout that though. Overall a excellent game!
Needs fixing
by Grampie Rabbit on 2014/05/03 05:14
It said &#34;pet&#34; and had 2 choices, each 3 letters. I chose dog and cat. It liked both, the boxes turned green. Then it gave me two more choices each 5 letters. The clue for one was &#34;likes cheese&#34;, and for the other &#34;Disney character&#34;. I put in Pluto and mouse. It liked Pluto; that box turned green. Another empty box opened with 2 words. The clue was &#34;Disney character&#34; with 6 and 5 ltrs. I put in Mickey Mouse. It liked that; the box turned green. I could not think of anything to put in the remaining box so I pressed &#34;hint&#34;. It gave me an &#34;m&#34;. I tried mouse again. It didn&#39;t like that. I repeated this process several times and it put &#34;Mouse&#34; in the box but did not turn it green. The screen only showed hints - nothing else worked. There is something wrong with this game. I do not recommend this game. Perhaps they will fix it and then maybe it will make sense.
So addictive and totally accessible with voiceover!
by Mollycita on 2016/07/18 03:12
Once I pick this game up, I can&#39;t seem to put it down again. Even when I&#39;m not playing I still try to figure out the clues in the back of my mind while I&#39;m going about my day. Unlike so many other apps, the free version has plenty of puzzles to keep you busy and thinking for a really long time. I&#39;ve always liked crossword type puzzles, but either there inaccessible to blind players or the clues are so obscure you can never figure them out. In this game though with a little time and effort, eventually you&#39;re able to get it. Best app I&#39;ve downloaded in months! Well done!
Great Game
by GirlAtHome22 on 2013/03/21 01:34
I love this game. I came across it accidentally, and so happy I did. 2 is much better than the other version. My only complaints are I wish there were more specific themes IE specific TV shows maybe something like a CSI special where everything is related to the shows. The option to buy a board Of a particular person like Taylor Swift would be very appealing to me! It could branch out with song titles, album release years, favorite number, magazine covers etc... Just really specific things related to Taylor Swift! I am completely obsessed with this game! I hope to see Taylor Swift and more TV show specific options in the near future!
Glad to have it! :)
by funny man123453256 on 2011/07/18 07:18
I rate this game a four star game because it&#39;s a great game to pass time if u r in the car ( not recommended for people with car sickness problems ) but my problem with it is when there that one time where you are either out of hints or you are on a golden bonus word where you can&#39;t use hints and you just can&#39;t figure it out and u are stuck on it for a while although It&#39;s a good game for all ages ( depending on the question and your opinion on the game ) but it tests your skills with the way of the brain [tests your knowledge] so yeah thanks for making this app me and members of my family like to play it thanks again
Love it but...
by RoseBisou5 on 2010/06/18 16:26
Fantastic game. Love it overall and really like the upgrades to the format, BUT... $1 for EACH additional level?!? Um.. No. -1 Star for that. When I purchased the original iAssociate, I paid $1.99 and it had a good many levels. Why would I then pay $1 PER LEVEL for additional ones? I love the game, and would hapily pay $1 for a PACK of new levelS... As in more than ONE. 5 levels for $1 would be fine, so long as they weren&#39;t super short or small. ** And FYI- the levels that you can add for $1, you can download individually as a little app of it&#39;s own, for FREE. Do a search in the app store for &#34;word association&#34; and it will pull them up for you to download. Free! Lol
Iassociate 2
by Mvt1269 on 2010/06/24 12:24
Ok Iassociate 2. Is a great improvement over the original game. The new features make it more enjoyable and keeps me from feeling overwhelmed that I&#39;ll never be able to figuire out the word because I can get a hint. The added facebook feature is cool, letting you connect with other players. I felt most of the associations made sense, and were the first or second thing i would think of, which is the point. Obviously the only downfall is it is addicting and needs more levels. Overall great, fun game, never get bored. Awaiting more levels.
Best game on my iPhone!
by Granny Dorothy on 2010/11/17 02:03
I absolutely love this game! It is easy to play for a few minutes or for hours...LOL. I also find it stretches my mind and since I am a Granny it help me keep the brain cells exercised. I agree that it would be great to just open up to the game instead of having to see the title screen. Looking forward to purchasing more levels. Please keep the cost of new levels at 99 cents - A free new level every once in awhile would be a great bonus. Thanks for creating a great game and adding new puzzles to solve!
My interest in the game died quickly..
by shortCipherB on 2010/06/05 12:16
once i learned how to cheat it. I hate to spoil it for those of you that enjoy it, but hopefully what I&#39;m going to say will result in a more challenging version of the game in a future update... You can simply keep guessing at the next letter of the word without penalty until it is revealed. This approach seems more appealing than wasting a hint. So I keep finding myself doing this on words that I&#39;m stuck on. Once I realized this, the game went from being challenging and interesting to rather boring very quickly. Maybe some of you have more will power than I do. Kudos to you. I&#39;ll take the freebies if they&#39;re available in a pinch.
Mind mining on a higher level playing field

Although still a bit buggy; I can find myself suddenly looking at the outside of the game instead of playing in it; I find myself alternately at a complete loss or almost 95% accuracy, This game baffles my 47 year old significant other, but allows almost enough hints for my 87 year old mom to &#34;get&#34; it. After being with this game for over 4 years; I find myself annoyed that a certain amount of points doesn&#39;t discount the cost of new games. I also think that some of the games are a bit chintzy in the amount of words &amp; associations used. More words, more associations, more for the money or less money or tokens per games that are L or X or XL. I, myself at 56 &amp; an avowed wordsmith, geographical fiend, &amp; trivial pursuits enthusiast; still would like more clues as well as at least get a hint letter for each word in a group of words. All in all, a great challenging game. Fix the bugs, please! JGE the Herbalist

It&#39;s not cool that the letter count disappears when you click into the word field to enter. Also the hint box at the top of the screen isn&#39;t obvious and could be called out with greater visual clarity. Biggest complaint is the subject matter of level 2. Just as I successfully complete level 1 I&#39;m rewarded with a web of insensitive word clues and base human monikers for people with mental health issues. I closed the app and didn&#39;t reopen again for 3 weeks. After completing a few words I opened other webs but I&#39;m so offended I&#39;m deleting the app. In this world we don&#39;t need these things. You should remove the Crazy web. It&#39;s in extremely bad taste.
Awesome game, but where are my free tokens?

If you are considering this app, stop considering and start downloading! it&#39;s a blast. I absolutely LOVE this game, and I have recommended it to plenty of friends. If you like puzzle/word games you will be hooked in a matter of minutes. It&#39;s great! NOTE TO THE DEVELOPER: The reason I give you 3/5 stars is because of the Token Store. I have tried downloading many of the apps (even some I did not want) just to earn tokens to put toward more levels, but the tokens never show up! I feel like it is false advertising, and makes your app misleading and appear poorly developed. Please fix it so we can keep playing!
very good app
by Eliminate is AWESOME!!!! on 2010/06/04 04:35
this is an awesome app A++ but there are a few things that I would like to see in a future update -move the hint button, please, as it is in the same place as the DONE button for entering your word. I HATE wasting hints (I try to use none at all if possible actually) -ability to reset a puzzle without reinstalling the app - instead of the speed metal being first 1000 players to get 100%, make it time you, either how long you spend per puzzle or how long it is since you start, since people who dont get the app the day it comes out dont have much chance for the speed medal anymore - additional level packs... for 99 cents or maybe in free updates ;-) Overall, a very very good app but it could still use some improvements. This is well worth the money but getting it free is better!!! Thank you for the great app!
Very addicting!

I could play this for hours... I just wish it would give hints on the bonus words. Some of them dont make sense. It would also be nice to download more FREE levels!!! I dont want to pay a dollar for every extra level when i know it will only last a day or so until i beat it. Just update the game more &amp; add more levels for free then the game will be worth 5 stars &amp; top on my list! Overall, its a great logic game that really makes you think, and think outside the box. You won&#39;t be sorry you downloaded &amp; tried it... You&#39;ll be hooked!
iAssociate 1 & 2

This concept is a great base for a game. Connecting the words and completing the layout is wonderful! The principal of the odd connections between words and phrases is addictive. IA-2 is pretty fun as well. I like that you can add to the letters of the words that you have partially answered. The connections don&#39;t seem quite as fun-convoluted as iA-1. Plus, iA-2 gives you the word if it is close. Hate that and it is a negative. Also, miss the bonus round at the ends of the levels. Thought I saw 2 has it but can&#39;t find it. But, iA-2 game is still a plus. Worth more than the price.
Confused

I really enjoy this game, but I believe it owes me 15,000 tokens. When you win and get a bronze metal for finishing in the top 1000 players for speed as a bonus you are supposed to get 1000 tokens. I know I didn&#39;t get in the last bronze game I won because my balance is 526 tokens. I have won 15 games in the bronze category and have never had nearly enough tokens to add to that amount. I sent a message thru Facebook but no reply from them yet. I have no other way to contact them. Now I&#39;m adding to review. You don&#39;t win tokens, you get points. What good are points. You need tokens or money to get more games and you have to buy tokens. No way to win them. What a rip off. 80 plus game at a dollar each. WOW!!!
Entertaining, thoughtful game

A great way to pass the time. The games will make you think, and occasionally pause to look something up. You do need to purchase many of the levels - each may take an hour or so to play, I suppose if you played right through, but you are able to earn tokens by watching ads, if you don&#39;t want to pay outright. This has been my go to game when I have a few minutes to spare lately.
