Touch a Letter
Simply touch a letter to move it to the next available slot. If the letter is already in the slots area, you can touch it to send it back up.
Or, you can drag the letters to a specific spot. If there is a letter already in that spot, it will move right to make room for the incoming letter. Letters will arrange themselves until they all find a place.
