Word game lovers watch out for the newest iPhone word app on the block! With Just 2 Words, it may soon become difficult to get back to the real world. No cryptic clues, no mish mash- all it takes is just two words to solve each puzzle. Meant for all ages, it is a simple game yet tricky and challenging. Some of the answers which you are unable to figure out for a long time actually embarrass you with their obviousness once revealed.

Just 2 Words for iOS has been developed by David L Hoyt, popular puzzle and game inventor. Hoyt has been known for inventing famous puzzles such as USA Today Word Roundup, Jumble Crosswords, TV Jumble and several others.


Just 2 Words presents each puzzle with a popular two word combination such as ‘BLACK BEAUTY’. The picture of a black horse is shown along with the letters of the solution jumbled up. Though this one must be an easy one for most book addicts, there are more challenging puzzles the more you go up the level, but at no point are they too unrelated to identify. With each solution, coins are earned which you can use to buy additional clues for the next puzzle.


  • Just 2 Words for iOS has a playful and easy to navigate interface. For instance, it allows you to shuffle the jumbled letters every time you shake the phone.
  • Picture hints can be zoomed in and out.
  • Any time after putting in a word, the letters can be removed and put in again.
  • For each puzzle, there are three hints: the letters can be shown or colour coded according what different letters will be required for the two words respectively and finally, there is a special hint from David himself which described the phrase in a sentence or two.
  • At any point, you can share your scores to Facebook and Twitter, and challenge your friends to beat your score.
  • Graphics have an extra high resolution which appears great on phones and HD tablets.
