Will keep trying... also means I don't have to worry about as much what you finally name your activity :-)

FWIW: "Collect Words" is my favourite suggestion.

Quick question: Does wordgroupz allow you to collect words in different languages, say if I wanted to group the Arabic, Spanish, and English word for "Hello" together (as a way of learning language vocabulary)? If it can support that use, I could possibly use an icon with a single word in several different languages.
