Wordzy is a Universal Game Template where you have to unscramble as many letters in a word, as you want, in a nice interface as a grid of buttons.

Wordzy is multi-language (English and Italian words and translations included for demo purposes), native Android Studio project, Java language, Universal, super easy to customize.
What about free support for this template?
I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

Should I use the latest version of Android Studio to edit this template?
Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE and you also should make sure you’ve updated the Android Tools to their latest version of the Android SDK manager.
