Ever since Wordle started gaining popularity, many people started to search for it in Playstore or Appstore to download it on their phones. Many developers also started to make and publish their own version of Wordle in Playstore or Appstore in hopes of gaining popularity.
However, they were all taken down shortly. This shows that people were really addicted to this game, and they wanted it on their phones so that they could play it wherever they wanted. Wordle doesn’t have an official app currently, but it is in development, so people can expect to download it very soon. But if you can’t wait for the official app and want to play it on your phone right now, there’s a way to do that as well.
How to Play Wordle on iPhone
Wordle is a simple word game that has taken the world by storm. Its simplistic gameplay and visually aesthetic UI are the main reasons why people are so attracted to this game. At first glance, it just looks like another boring word game. However, only when you start playing this game you’ll soon realize that you can’t escape from its addiction.
Wordle doesn’t have an official iOS app yet, so you can’t download it directly from the AppStore. However, there is a workaround for this that lets you launch Wordle on your iPhone without having to open your browser and type the web address yourself.
There are currently two versions of Wordle on the internet. The first one is the official Wordle website, developed by its creators, and the second one is made by the NY Times. Both versions of the game have the same set of rules. However, on the NY Times version, you can only play once a day, whereas, in the official version, you can play as many times as you like.
Here’s how you can play Wordle on iPhone:
- On your iPhone, visit this website or this one.
- Now, press the share button at the bottom of your screen. (It is a rectangle with an arrow pointed upward icon)
- Search for an option called Add to the home screen and tap it.
- You can rename it if you want, or if you don’t want to, you can leave it as it is and tap on Add.
That’s it. Now, you can see the Wordle icon on your home screen, and each time you tap it, it will redirect you to its website.
How to Play a Wordle Game (Gameplay)
After you add Wordle to your home screen, you can launch it normally as you would launch any app. This will redirect you to the particular website, depending on the version of Wordle you’ve added.
However, one thing to keep in mind is that your current streak from Safari won’t transfer over to this web app. Once you add it to your home screen, you’ll have to start from the beginning and make your way up by solving puzzles. But in the near future, you’ll be able to sync your scores to multiple devices that are running on the same account.
After you launch the game, you’ll see a screen with multiple boxes. You’ll have to guess a five-letter word within six tries. And when you successfully guess the word, you’ll win the round. If you can guess the correct letter and its order, the letter turns green. If you can correctly guess the letter but not its position, it turns yellow and if you incorrectly guess the letters, it turns grey.
