What are the best word-related games for the iPhone?

I have and enjoy the following word games for the iPhone: Scrabble, Words with Friends, Scramble/Scramble2, and Word Tower. What other fun word games / apps should I check out?

I like Word Ace. It's scrabble-poker. (It's also cross platform. I play on my Pre, but I've seen people playing on iPhones and Facebook.)

Word Warp (like Word Twist on Facebook): anagramming six letters in two minutes, with continuous levels.

Popcap's Bookworm has amused me on PC, I would assume its just as good on the Iphone.

Bookworm seconded!

Wurdle has been my iTouch word game of choice for a while.

Word Ace, Lexic, Wordjong, and WordCrasher are my big 4 when it comes to word games.

Add me to the fans of Word Ace, too.

A little bit different, but I think Dungeon Scroll is well done. It's a make-words-out-of-a-jumble-of-letters game in (very light) role playing game form.

Quordy is a fun Boggle-type game. It keeps up with your best games, best words, etc., which is fun.

Wurdle is crack for the iPhone. Beware its addictive powers!

I enjoy Words with Friends

*It's Scrabble.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Perfect for a snow-bound day.

Bananagrams. Play alone or live with others.

!!Blatant self-link warning!!

How about a Chinese word game? Check out my game, DragonScribe (Lite). It's fun as a puzzle game, even if you have no interest in actually learning the language.

Blocks with Letters On was recently released for the iPhone. I finished it online, so didn't want to start again, but it's a great game.

Jumbline (another boggle/text twist variation). Wordspin is another word/spelling game.

WordPops is like a changing speed-Boggle game.

My favorite was Wurdle, but I starting wasting too much time on it so it had to go.
