hi all, from what i can gather, we must move related words in to their own columns. given that 7 little words was accessible, has anyone reached out to the devs re this title? how are others playing it?

In the past red herring was not accessible. It is somewhat accessible now. There are sixteen words divided into four columns. Four words to a column. You want to move the words so that the first three columns hold words that have something in common. The last column will end up with four words, red herrings, that are associated with nothing. If you doubletap and then drag the word it seems to work most of the time. There is a tutorial when you first start.

This rocks. As far as I can see, the game is accessible. Everything works for me. I have a lot of fun with it. The tricky thing is where to drag but as soon as I figure that out things work rather straight forward. Honestly I cannot put this game down. I will get more puzzles.
