Updates and upgrades
by Beccaria87 on 2020/09/23 12:03
Stop with all the confusing updates and upgrades. They’re annoying and make playing far more complicated than it needs to be. “Collect these random objects to unlock a goal that can then be used to unlock a prize that may be worth 2 coins!” Or my favorite “get your daily prize so on the last day of the month you can earn 1 coin!”
Best Hint on playing
by Marybuzz on 2020/09/23 11:53
Do not play through Facebook. If you play as a normal player without FB interface the scammers and trollers are gone . You still have your friends and create new ones, and then the game plays pure. Facebook interfacing ruins the game. PS I’ve been playing on line Scrabble since Pogo.com days and Words with Friends since it’s inception. It was all fun until the trollers and scammers got mixed into it through FB. Now I play without FB interface. It’s fun again. No headaches or men bothering me or useless games starting and stopping. Do the same.
WOrds with friends 2
by Mgivoni on 2020/09/23 11:38
I’ve been playing this game since 2013. This last version has way to many bugs. When the notification shows up in my iPhone, and I press on it, WW2 opens up and I play that game, when I try to pass to another game the games button is stuck. The game won’t move. I’ve got to literally close the iPhone and reopen it 5 minutes after. Please help
Great game...but...
by Germanicus011 on 2020/09/23 10:31
The only issue I have with this game is that people will play words that aren’t technically words at all. For example, someone played the word “errants” for 79 points despite the fact that the stupid game is saying it’s an official words with friends word, but an actual definition isn’t available yet. There’s no reason for this to be going on in a game like this. It’s cheating essentially regardless of what the game says about the word. Shouldn’t ever happen. If I could upload the screenshot I would. I gave this game only two stars as this could seriously put players at an unfair advantage and if nobody double checks it like I did, I’m sure they would never fix the problem.
Are you guys reading these bad reviews?

Take a hint and read the reviews your employees restraint regarding this product is going dow hill. Origination getting worse.
Getting More and More Annoying
by Hemulen52 on 2020/09/23 04:29
Not talking about the ads. It’s the nagging and notifications that are ruining my enjoyment of this game. There was already the notification that pops up EVERY TIME you choose to swap letters telling you about the cheat feature to swap without losing your turn. Now there is a “stickers” feature that no one I play against is using and I don’t care about. I’m now getting nagged every other play with an animation calling my attention to the stickers. PLEASE stop with the nagging or allow your users to acknowledge the feature exists and not be hassled anymore Does Zynga have a user experience team?

Great Game if You Got Rid of Scammers
by Taintedtiara on 2020/09/23 03:04
I've gotten 2-4 game requests per day from men who have no intention of playing the game. They get angry when you don't respond to chats or their endless tedious questions. To weed out these pervy players who keep making fake profiles to harass women, please consider putting an algorithm in place to 1. prevent new players from using the chat feature until they have attained several levels/games won, and 2. if anyone has been blocked by several players, chances are it's because they are harassing people. Once someone gets a certain number of blocks, please consider suspending their access. On the flip side, male friends of mine say profiles with attractive women donthe same thing to them, feigning interest and asking for money. Again, algorithms limiting the chat feature or monitoring blocked users should help here.
Stay on mute

Waste of time
by ritemomo on 2020/09/23 00:59
The game is set up so every time a player plays a word, an ad shows up. When you tap the X in the upper right corner of the ad, another ad pops up or Safari appears. A big waste of time trying to wade through the ads to continue a game only to go through the same cycle, again. I quit!
Stupid emoji stickers
by HWeird on 2020/09/23 00:47
Please get rid of those stupid emoji stickers. Every time you play you have to hit skip.At least put it somewhere where you don’t have to hit skip every time. And all the pop-ups for different games and features. I have the paid words with friends and it’s getting ridiculous
New version

Even though I hate change,I like the new version. I have wasted many hours in the accompaniment of my friends and all these words!
What are the gold stars for?
by GranEllen on 2020/09/23 00:34
I love to play this game and collect prizes I can use to gain an advantage. I keep winning gold stars, but haven’t been able to find out what they’re good for. Can you clue us in? I tried to enter the word “lythe,” but it was rejected. It means soft, flexible. Please add it.
Great game
by Canterburygirl on 2020/09/22 23:44
Love playing, but I have a few complaints. If a word does not have a definition or common use, then it can’t be considered a word. That really bugs me. And stop littering up my screen with silly games I don’t ask to play.

Awesome game. I only just started playing the end of last year. However it is very challenging at times. Can keep me occupied for hours.
Doesn’t always load
by RiazSibtainSyed on 2020/09/22 21:55
I do love playing this game, but I only give three stars because the Word Wheel event won’t ever load for me.

Loud ads- phone on silent 😡
by Lilsurfergirlll on 2020/09/22 19:46
I love this game, but it is BEYOND annoying how I have my phone on silent and half your ads start blaring out music at me. It’s maddening enough I almost want to delete it and quit playing. My phone is on silent for a reason, respect that.
Violent ads promoting massacre killing & gun violence
by CY Chu on 2020/09/22 18:55
I love this game until the massacre killing and gun violence ads show up. With all the gun violence we have in this country, these type of violent infused game should have no place in the market. Promoting it says a lot about the company owns word 2 with friends. App deleted.
I play the ENGLISH version
by Luvtn on 2020/09/22 18:09
So why are the Hebrew, Grecian, Arabic alphabet included, as are coins from Tibet, but can’t use the word Zion, Spanish words frequently used in America??? Lots of obscure foreign words! Scottish word loe is unacceptable? Though frequently used in America. If you are in a heated battle of words with a friend who most times wins and you ask for help, it will outline the letters to use. I used them and the App has the audacity to say “oh by the way there was a better choice!” Of course it is one of those obscure foreign languages! Grr
Rage Against The Machine
by Monty Tiger on 2020/09/22 18:01
In general I love and am good at word games, I have a fairly decent if not excellent vocabulary; I play the "Practice" version as I'm tired of guys in particular sending stupid messages - I'm here for the words. Why I gave it only one star is, I play the so called "English/American" version and more than half the words "the machine" plays are words they themselves have no definition for, the other half are either foreign or extremely obscure/not in current use on any level of society words. On top of which - I, In fact know many words in English - in current use, which they do not accept (oh yes, I can define and put them in sentences too - in fact if you google the words I know they're right there in plain sight - unlike theirs who they insist are "real" but have no definitions for. And yet I have no recourse but to accept their stupid unknown obscure (can't even look it up) words, while they deny my real ones. Who runs this Dog and Pony Show anyway?!?
Please remove the smiley emoji!
by Snic03p00 on 2020/09/22 17:46
They have now put on smiley emojis to send to people. Really? Why? It’s in the way. I’m never going to send one during this game. I have used them in occasional text, but I’m not 10 and do not find the need to use them in everything. Please, Please remove it!!!! And do not add unnecessary stuff to the game. This alone is making me rethink of whether to continue what has been a long run here. There is also something else, not that I would quit over, but, it’s crazy. Has this turned into a dating site and no one told me? I have had so many men try to pick me up. It’s ‘WORDS’, guys! Maybe they get lost or can’t read. I don’t know. I’m confused. Go to the dating websites. Also why aren’t the reviews in order? Just asking.
App Freezes
by ACLyons on 2020/09/22 17:16
Every time I play a word, my app freezes. I can’t use Hindsight, Rematch, or go to Next Games. I force close the app, and then next turn it happens again. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, I have updated it, everything that can be done. I send messages to tech support, and what they tell me is the above which I have done lots and lots of times. They never even mention the issue I ask about. It never get resolved. No one ever offers any solution that works.

The Game is Getting Harder to Play
by PS1913 on 2020/09/22 16:14
It seems like the developers are fishing for the next killer feature. But the cost is that it’s killing the gameplay. Now it seems like no matter what you do, you win some kind of prize or get some kind of McGuffin (like a page or a leaf or a seashell or whatever). It wouldn’t be so bad if it was easy to opt out of all that junk, but it’s kind of annoying to play with more than one or two people because every time I play a move now I also have to confirm that I don’t want to send a sticker. Then, if I breathed, I win some kind of prize or I have to collect apples for the story mode (I guess). I have no idea why the story thing even exists. Again, I don’t hate that it’s there - I hate that I can’t just not use it. The game features are getting to be worse than the ads. I mean at least with the ads, you can pay couple bucks and not have to see them again.

Quick play
by ThatWimmy on 2020/09/22 11:45
I like this game but from now on every time I try to play Quick Play, the app freezes, and I have to restart only to find that it started the round right away for the other guy and they either already won or have a hundred point head start, the app loses a star.
Classic game style please
by bkalbe on 2020/09/22 11:37
I hate all of the endless pops ups. I just want to play words and could care less about badges and stickers. Can you create a classic mode for those that want the simple style you used to have?
Love the game!!
by Berta38 on 2020/09/22 08:40
Love the game, hate the ads for other games and other things, especially sonc I paid for a no ad version! Can’t get rid of some f them and hav to shutdown; other times they just slow the games down.
Fix Apple Pencil on iPadOS 14
by narso310 on 2020/09/22 08:39
Used to work mostly well with Apple Pencil in iPadOS 13, now I just get useless scribbles on the screen. Have to use my finger to move tiles. Also, even in iOS 13 I couldn’t tap the “next game” buttons with the Pencil. Also would be nice if the “reward” screens were skippable or just a notification that didn’t take up the whole screen. I don’t really care about them, I just want to play my moves. Once Pencil support is fixed I’ll give this game a 5 stars again.
Good basic game; too much extras
by duckczn on 2020/09/22 04:39
The basic game is fun. I get tired of all of the random event notifications and now these new stickers. PLEASE give us an option to turn those off!
Juvenile
by fkstjvzj on 2020/09/22 04:00
Latest upgrade is horrifically juvenile and condescending. I don’t need or want the new bar that indicates my word strength every time I add a letter that happens to create a word and comes with a ridiculous swooping noise every time. I much preferred the old version where I could choose to look at word strength when I wanted to. This may stop me from playing.
Great game, but it’s such a shame...
by TeeTee3Says on 2020/09/22 03:33
It’s a shame the way the mess around with these ads. It’s a shame the way it doesn’t just hurt gameplay. The ads shut off your music player. The game is as great as it’s ever been. The advertisements are worse than every—nearing unbearable.
Great game.

Frustrated!!
by Icantfindaname_1 on 2020/09/22 01:50
I’ve been playing this game for many years, and until about six months ago, would’ve given it five stars. I paid for the upgrade several years ago, so no ads to deal with. My issue is that using this version, I can only play a game with someone on my “friends” list. What happened to Smart Match? Fast Play? I was so happened when they came out with Fast Play. I hate games that take a month to finish. Because of this, I went back to the older version, which is now telling me to install WWF2. If I am forced to do so, I’ll be saying a sad goodbye to WWF. This game has gone from awesome to frustrating.
You are rated poorly
by Dougnuggett on 2020/09/22 01:12
It would be nice to just play the game without all the garbage you add to my screen. No I definitely do not want you to give me games with anyone or any machine. No I definitely do not want to play any of your inane stupid extra trash or manufactured situations. Stop ruining a good game with your worthless minutia . Just let us play the game with people we select . We don’t need your help or your interference with our games or the friends we chose to play with. Please stop the garbage Thank you.

Not Happy With The iOS 14 changes
by Milehighmom on 2020/09/21 23:06
Historically, I’ve used my iPad Pro for most of my games like this, and I use my Apple Pencil to move tiles around. With the update to iOS 14, for whatever reason, when I try to use my pencil on the board or to move tiles, it “reads” it as a writing pad. I can’t select and move tiles anymore, and it’s terribly frustrating. I have a paid version so the ads aren’t any problem for me, but I’m getting turned off on the game because it’s changed. Oh, I did write to Zynga help and was only told to restart my game. Yeah - I’d already done that several times. I’m just frustrated that even after reaching out for help, nothing changed. I doubt that the makers even play the game like I do, so it’s unimportant to them. OK. I’m through whining. I have a game to play - with my FINGERS! (Lol)

Constant Crashes and Ads
by Andrew A on 2020/09/21 21:11
The developers have outdone themselves making this game as irritating and unstable as possible. I have to force quit this advertisement, I mean game, a dozen times a day. Pathetic junk. Update: I followed all troubleshooting steps to no avail. Then I followed their “Contact Support” instructions which naturally just stops when you need support from an actual person...dead end with no response.

What’s with the unsolicited sex workers
by Daddy Pop365 on 2020/09/21 18:59
I have a competitive spirit and I love a good challenge. From time to time, I’ve gotten request for games from people I don’t know. I have never had a problem with unsolicited request for games until recently. Recently, I’m getting messages from women who send messages like, “ Hi, how are you?” Or “What’s going on (my name)?”. Is it possible to send the WWF administrators an alert regarding these unsolicited messages? So sad...
Fix the ads
by Bbecker68 on 2020/09/21 18:25
I cannot understand why it is so difficult to close an ad after it has finished playing. If we have to watch them because we are playing the free version, at least make them close correctly. I constantly have to close the app and re-open it.
Tired of men getting personal
by DenverDame on 2020/09/21 18:24
I have the same problem as previous writer. A game is started but if you don’t want to share personal information, they quit playing so obviously, this game is not their interest. Also, about every three games or do, my screen freezes and I have to reboot. I think this is WWF fault. How can this be fixed?

Can’t open games???
by sihnycuws on 2020/09/21 15:57
For the past few weeks I have been unable to open games. The app opens fine, and I can scroll up and down, but when I try to click on a game nothing happens. I do not have a problem with any other apps, so it is not an issue with my phone. I’ve updated the app, closed/reopened the app, and restarted my phone, to no avail. I’ve been playing this game for 10 years, but I guess now I’ll have to move on to something else. (Oh and this is the PAID version I’m talking about - which makes it even more frustrating!)
Great game, but way too many ads
by Louisvillewordsplayer on 2020/09/21 15:44
The ads after every word placement is beyond excessive and ruins the experience. I’d happily pay to purchase the app, but the only option is a monthly subscription for $9.99, which is also excessive. Hoping the creators recognize that everyone on here will leave once something only remotely better comes along.
Lousy thing to do...
by Clieb_1 on 2020/09/21 14:32
I’ve never written a review before, but I’m kind of annoyed. This latest update has taken a nice free feature (Word Strength) and is making it into a paid feature. On top of that, I don’t like the new layout of the feature with sitting at the bottom of the screen now. I get they are a company trying to make money, but this just feels like a really poor move to me. They’ve taken a simple, fun game and tried to monetize every square inch of it.
Disappointed with Quick Play
by SolitaireObsession on 2020/09/21 14:27
I have been using this app for a while and really enjoyed the new “Duel” feature but am increasingly frustrated with the app not responding and counting scores, starting one player and the other just sees the game opening and then joins when the other player is already far ahead. While I can completely understand technical glitches and timings, it has only happened more recently so it must be a usage issue. Deeply disappointing when the game is not credited if the response time, score counts, etc are disrupted. I would be happy to play again but do lose for technical issues and have no option to report it and not receive a new credit for the game is deeply frustrating.
Great game, but bloated with crap
by toad555555 on 2020/09/21 13:37
I enjoy playing the game with friends, but all the various awards and challenges are extremely annoying. It takes forever to load an then you have to wade through pop ups and x them out. The dictionary really stinks - it allows words that would be illegal in Scrabble and doesn’t allow other words that can be found in a dictionary. Moreover for the past year or more my tokens have totaled 1199. All of a sudden a few days ago I only have 1144 and I did not “buy” anything. I’ve tried numerous times over the years to contact support, but have never received a reply.
Constant freezing issues..

Used to be more fun but...
by 2caldwells on 2020/09/21 07:09
I used to enjoy this game more, but through the last 4-5 iterations it freezes after every second or third word played. Support just says the same old things: force quit, restart the phone, hard restart the phone, delete and reinstall the app, yadda, yadda, yadda. I keep hoping the next update will fix it, but no… Also allows too many foreign words that are not commonly used in English, and too many abbreviations.
Tired of it
by 1Bruinlady on 2020/09/21 06:56
I have been playing this game for years and have enjoyed it very much. Ads start playing in the background causing the game to crash. If this continues, I’ll find a better word game to play.

Frustrated with the endless feature additions
by gtlar on 2020/09/21 03:28
The new changes to Word strength are terrible. Please add an option under settings to turn off the main screen bar and reenable the manual approach with bars via clicking on the green check. Being pestered with auto fill and messages on how to play the game is patronizing and irritating. Further, I have no need to send an emoji sticker when sending a word. For the last couple of years, I have enjoyed playing for the most part, but in the last few months changes/sub games additions have ramped up so quickly, the game is losing the simple beauty it had.
Stop with the garbage!

I love playing this game however the chatting feature needs changes.
by naturalmusiclover on 2020/09/21 00:15
Why does WWF2 have to become a meat market for men looking to talk to women? I don’t mind chatting with someone about the game that we’re playing or congratulating someone on a good placement of tiles however I don’t want to accept someone’s chat only to find out they’re trying to make a move on me and not the game. It is clear after a few moves that they are not there to play the game because they are not even trying. When I go to close out that game because it is a waste of time ( because they are not really trying to play) it counts against me which I believe is not fair to me.I would prefer to at least be able to see the message that they send and then decide if I want to respond or chat. Right now I have to decide whether I wanna take the chance that they are chatting about the game. Currently I am not inclined to accept a chat. Are there any women helping to design this program?

When you’re playing against the computer it a whole other story. Tell me what this word means as the dictionary doesn’t have it listed?? Even when I looked it up it said it’s a Words with friends word???
Ads

It is a great game. Takes a little time for the ads to get done.
Ad free?
by $34*@1 on 2020/09/20 21:36
I like the game. The app does have its issues which can be frustrating. But the ads are increasing and are getting political. Is it 9.99/ month to be ad free? Initially it was 9.99 period.

Too many ads and no way that I can find to just purchase the game

Words with Friends keeps me busy. When The ACORN ad comes onhowever, it freezes Words and there's no way to turn it off except turning off my phone! Words also accepts words that aren't words with meanings which is Ridiculous and unfair.
Word strength indicator useless now
by Bjthadj22 on 2020/09/20 19:29
With the latest update the word strength indicator, helping to maximize points on ever play, is basically worthless. At least in QuickPlay games. Seems to still work OK in traditional games. Why the change in quick play? This is causing me to use the app a LOT less...
Uber
by Boomer3793 on 2020/09/20 19:25
If I hear that Uber commercial comes screaming out of my phone again when I have it on silent I am never playing this game again. That is ridiculous
Smile emojis
by sbwkeoqhd j on 2020/09/20 15:57
Please prevent smile emojis from popping up and I’ve also had the same issue with men trying to be my “friend” and get me to talk on another app, I usually am up front about how desperate you must be! Of course it’s my choice to approve the chat request! I have met some pretty cool people through this game! Ads without audio would be great too!
Latest update
by youngish on 2020/09/20 15:35
As a player of many years, PLEASE make it possible to disable all chats. It’s disheartening and exhausting to have to mute one unwanted conversation after another. This was not so much an issue in the early days but now I dread playing.
Too many ads
by Pgmike on 2020/09/20 13:22
I’m fine with a few ads, but this app goes way overboard. And, the pop ups are very difficult to X out of. I’m quitting the app as a result. Not worth it.
Needs improvement
by MotoCross27 on 2020/09/20 12:45
The game board needs to stop zooming in when you place a tile on the board. It’s a simple fix but they won’t do it. You should be able to hold a few tiles in place in the tray while shuffling the remaining tiles. Example, words beginning with J are much more common so hold the J in the first slot in the tray. When you place a tile on the board the remaining tiles in the tray jump around. They should stay the way they were. I have a word spelled out, why does it mess that up? Again a simple fix. They need more man tile styles. Enough with the roses and purples. You should be able to choose your own tile styles to put into the inventory instead of the game doing it for you. The sticker emoji thing is dumb. You should be able to hide it if your never going to use it. Again a simple fix, an easy code change.
Too many ads
by kmhiuef on 2020/09/20 12:34
The ads pops up after every word you play. And it’s the same add over and over “Gardens escape”. It’s extremely annoying. I use to love words with friends but seeing that every single word you play the ad pops up I no longer play.
Words with Friends

Hi, I find playing very relaxing. A stress reliever.
Too many ads!!!

Good game but the ads and layers of ads are annoying beyond belief.
Still Keeps getting worse
by ESS16 on 2020/09/20 05:07
What does it take to convince you to stop adding stupid stuff to this game. Stickers? 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
Locks ups frequently
by Steve from IA on 2020/09/20 02:05
The app locks up freezes up continually. You end up having to power off and power back on. Frustrating. I’m done plying this unless someone can give me a solution.

Change the Name
by Josh Shack on 2020/09/19 22:01
The name should be changed to “Ads with Friends”.
Fun but
by roxieborder on 2020/09/19 21:40
I love this game and I’ve been playing for years but it locks up almost every move and then I have to close the app. It also give me annoying notifications that I don’t want but if I turn them off then it turns off the notifications for when it’s my turn. This app needs a lot of housekeeping.
Notifications won’t go away
by dawniellerene on 2020/09/19 20:50
Please fix the problem where notifications won’t go away. It’s sooooooo annoying. I have had an inventory notification for weeks that won’t go away.
Hate the ads
by Omg?. on 2020/09/19 20:37
Love the game but way too many ads. Where can I pay for an ad free game? Don’t see anything on the App Store and free ad blockers haven’t blocked anything yet.
Too many animations
by Sheafz on 2020/09/19 17:33
Thanks for handing out daily prizes and all the side games, but the animations are non stop. Just show all the items from the crate and move on, why should I have to skip?
Game Keeps Freezing
by Kerton22 on 2020/09/19 17:10
I’m super bummed. I play thus game all the time but recently it started freezing on the ads. I’d have to delete and reinstall the app to correct the issue. Today, it froze after submitting my move. Also I wish there was an option to buy the app as the ads are really annoying. Might have to find. New word game. Sad cause I really liked the new features.
Fun, but.....
by Dipsydoo01 on 2020/09/19 16:32
Some of the words (??) the computer comes up with are ones we have NEVER heard of—very obscure.
Words With Friends 2 game
by CaptainAmerica86 on 2020/07/01 15:56
Great game to play with friends and all that if you’re a word game player type of person and all that... and I love playing the game with my friends and all that...but one game I am having a message popping up saying “Oops! Something went wrong!” And then it takes me back to the main menu where all my other friends are that I play against and everything is normal on the games I play with them...but it’s just one friend that I have been playing with and we’ve been playing against each other on a game on words with friends and all that and I messaged them on Facebook messenger if they’ve been getting the same message as I am getting and they said yes to the something went wrong message and then I asked them if they got the same message on any of their other friends games... and they said “no...just our game” and all that and I would appreciate it if someone could please help me and tell me how to get rid of the “Oops! Something went wrong!” Message on my iPhone and iPad for the words with friends 2 app and all that please. Has anyone else ever encountered with the same problem as I am having here and asking for help on here?
This is a great game but....
by Starcourt Mall on 2020/06/14 13:40
So I only gave this 3 stars because the app has a few problems. Otherwise it’s a pretty good game! I love that you can play games with tons of different people and that there are the solo challenges! But there are a few problems that get in the way. 1) There are ads after EVERY SINGLE TURN YOU TAKE. There is only one exception of this: the solo challenges. 2) sometimes I don’t even get my games when it’s my turn! I’ve had to lose countless games because it never came up that it was my turn! That i found was very annoying, and the only way that I’ve figured out how to find those games is if you log out and then log back in again. And every time you log out, even if it’s just for a second, you get all of these new player notifications, like it didn’t even realize you had been gone for a second. 3) sometimes, it says it’s my turn and then I can’t even play. It won’t let me click on games sometimes, I’ve tried reloading my app several times, and it never worked! And finally 4) the time limit on games. I think personally this is pretty annoying, you have like 10-12 days or something to play your turn, or you lose! I’m not trying to spend every day on this app! I’ve got other things to do, and sometimes I won’t come on the app for a week or more! But overall I do like the concept, but if those few things could get fixed, then I definitely would highly recommend this game. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
I love this game but...
by Nica1980 on 2019/09/17 17:45
I have been playing this game for a few years now but I did take a break because of the overwhelming amount of men trying to pick you up. I play Everyday and sometimes for a couple of hours at a time. I enjoy most of the features and hope it just keeps getting better. I really wanted to give it four stars some things are nerve wracking with this game. The first is that when I go to watch a 30 second video to accumulate coins half the time it doesn’t work and keeps saying that it’s loading for a whole day. Please fix that. I also wish these videos gave at least 5 coins at a time but that’s not a big deal and is just my opinion. The other thing is that I continue to get game requests from men with a fake profiles. As stated in so many other reviews if you don’t chat and go to hangouts or other dating like websites they stop playing. Then that game will take up a game spot for 10+ days unless I resign which then messes up my stats. There has to be a way to work around this. Overall I love this game it’s my favorite of all time. I hope that it keeps improving and look forward to any new features. P.S I played a player a few days ago that had rainbow tiles. I asked her several times how she had the option for that style but she completely ignored me. I’m wondering is that something you would have to buy cause I would LOVE that.
Poorly developed Scrabble
by Unwrittn on 2020/02/12 21:34
I love Scrabble. But the design and execution of this app is just sad. First, it says ‘Words with Friends’, meaning the primary purpose is to play with people you know. But unless they are dedicated to the game, you could wait hours or even days for the other person to take their turn. If you really want to play, but you’re tired of waiting for a friend to check in, you could hit up a complete stranger. I’ve done this a few times only to be quizzed on my personal life, political and religious beliefs, and my love life. Apparently, this game attracts very lonely people who would rather chat than play, and who also think a game app is an appropriate place to find a companion. So again, I gave up on that avenue of play. What’s left? Solo Challenges! A chance to play against the computer at the rate of one game every 8 hours. Lame! And the computer does not stick to English, or a preferred language, or any language at all for that matter. It makes up words! I just played an entire game again “Long Nose Neil” and not a single word he played was a valid English word! Several were not real words and even the computer had no definition for them; others were in other languages (Hebrew, French, and Spanish). And as if that wasn’t annoying enough, it’s not even a real game. You have “5 moves(words)” in which to out-score the computer. I gave it 2 stars for being mildly entertaining, but it’s a far cry from what real Scrabble lovers would expect.
Update freezes
by Babs Toyfish on 2020/09/17 03:08
Update: Zynga seems bent on getting rid of all their adult users. The app gets progressively, aggressively stupider with every update. It’s more geared toward two-year-olds all the time. Maybe I’m being paranoid, but sometimes I suspect that they built that freeze (mentioned below) in on purpose to get you to always update in hopes the new version will fix it, because with every update a new annoying popup feature for children comes along, or you’re now charged for things that used to be free. I normally avoid updates because of things like this, but that freeze has got me trying each new one that comes along. They’re building in new bugs all the time seems. First it was not being able to use voice to text in chat more than once. Then it was not being able to use the cursor in the chat box. It’s like a new bug every time. One would think that a $7 billion company could do better on quality control. And every new feature feels like they’re dumbing the app down to appeal to children because children are easier to bilk money out of. I’m an advanced player who’s been playing this app a lot since 2011. It feels like they’re trying to push people like me out with all of this baby stuff. ———- App now freezes after every play. What’s up zynga? Been playing this game almost a decade now and never had a problem with the app. This makes 2 updates progressively worse than the last.
Bad design and each update brings new problems.
by Tabletha on 2020/09/19 04:27
I received a developer response saying to contact them directly. As stated in this review, I had already contacted directly. They either did not feel they have a problem, or they did not care to share with tech people that this seems to be a glitch within the game. They said to do all the things they usually say. As stated below, they were all already done. Won’t waste more time getting in touch with them, when they do not believe there is ever anything wrong. Once again, Word Wheel does not work. The screen goes solid dark blue, just like right before the profile slides put from the right side. The profile, inventory, achievements etc., when selected, slide out from the right side, overlaying a full dark blue screen. The Word Wheel game just turns into a completely dark blue screen, with no functionality. Have to close the app and reopen it, because it does not even have a way to x it out. Just dead blue screen. Have done two updates and nothing changes. ________________ This time it’s Word Wheel does not work. Try to play and get blank blue screen. I DO have the latest update. I DID delete and reinstall. I DID sign out and in again. I DID contact customer service and they said they refreshed from their end. Two cycles of Word Wheel games and they still will not play. and I do not want another refresh, because that invariably causes something else. Isn’t anyone else having this problem? Please fix.
Ads
by Kat€B on 2019/02/15 13:13
Look, I know you all want us to purchase the ad free version. Sorry, but I don’t play enough to make that happen. So I use the ad version and there is a big problem with this. I often play while waiting in a waiting room or while watching TV with other people. I have my phone on silent. But , some of your ad refuse to be silent! All of a sudden there is a blast of noise from an ad that refuses to shut up! I go into a high anxiety panic trying to silence this ad that I didn’t even want to see! Also, suddenly all the ads are 30 seconds long and you can’t get past them. It gets where we see the same ad over and over and it is frustrating. There are a couple of games that I have seen the ads for about 1,000,000,000 times. I have begun to absolutely hate them. I will never download those games just because I have seen the ads far too much. Okay, done with the rant about the ads. The game itself is good. The badges are a nice touch and they make you want to get more points. The other little games in the game such as collecting things to get a new box is also fun. The dictionary is good and helpful. But, the dictionary often has words that it says it cannot define. Also, some foreign words are accepted but some aren’t. The game itself has done well with no glitches. I have enjoyed it a lot.
Good App, But Uneven Support Outside of English
by Ari_Z12 on 2019/08/23 09:16
This is my favorite Scrabble-type mobile game and is popular with everyone I know for providing a quality experience. One feature I particularly liked was the ability to see the definition and a link to a dictionary entry for most words played when the game is set to English. This feature is something that sets the app apart from playing the traditional board game, and when combined with other gameplay improvements, it definitely makes the app better than the tediousness that sometimes is experienced when playing Scrabble by hand. What keeps this from being 5 stars for me is that not all words when the game is set to English have an associated definition or dictionary entry (will say something like “definition unavailable”), which makes it confusing how the developers chose what words make the cut for being playable. It also takes away from the learning aspect the app provides in being able to expand your vocabulary when an unusual word with no definition is played (e.g. Qi). I play equally in two languages, and the dictionary feature is absent altogether in the second language I play in (Portuguese). I would imagine it probably is only present in English, and would be glad to see it improved and expanded to other languages in the future.
Apple Pencil with iOS14 Update
by Mimidddddvvvvvv123123123 on 2020/09/18 15:47
I always play Words with Friends 2 with my Apple Pencil on my iPad. I use it to scroll through the game and move tiles. However, With the new update to iOS 14, the app will not allow me to use the pencil to grab tiles once I open a game. Instead, now the pencil just scribbles all over the game board and there is no option to turn this off. I don’t need to scribble on a scrabble game board, it’s not a coloring page. It is pointless. So far, all other apps I’ve opened work fine with the pencil. Please fix to still allow the pencil to also be used to play the game by scrolling and grabbing tiles, not just as a drawing tool. Other issues I have is if you use a Word Radar and then leave that board, when you return the game closes the “radar” and then makes you “buy” another radar. They didn’t use to do this and it seems petty. Also, I like that that they allow you to change the game tile within each individual game. However, in one of my games it keeps reverting to this one game tile that I hate. Even though I have changed both my universal default tile and the individual game tile, every time I open the individual game it reverts back to this other tile that I can’t stand. It is annoying. I love WWF but constant little glitches happen enough to where I felt I needed to say something here.
Fun game, but full of scammers
by jokael2 on 2020/08/22 18:48
There has to be some way to vet out these scammers who begin unsolicited conversations with women. They are relentless and annoying, and they have the same script. I don’t believe most of them are native English speakers based on their canned conversations and poor game-playing. After I accepted several challenges (I hoped they were due to being ‘smart matched’ with someone), 3 different men all started similar conversations with me ‘hello dear’ or using my name in another one. Then in 2 of them it led almost immediately to ‘where are you from’ and in one straight to ‘so, are you married?’ In one where I didn’t answer his repeated ‘hellos’, he finally said ‘so you don’t chat?’ I answered that and told him hello, but I was leery of chatting due to being asked those questions. He said he understood. Then next question was ‘so, where are you from?’ That’s when I looked up words with friends trolls, and found that this is a thing where ppl have actually been scammed. I don’t know what the answer is except to never say yes to a game or maybe just never open conversations with people I don’t know, but in the past I was able to say ‘good game’ or ‘nice word’ without worrying someone was going to try to solicit money from me. I love the game itself, so this stinks.
Progressively worse
by Caltagm on 2019/10/07 21:22
This game used to be fun. Scrabble is fun. Just by itself. But apparently the geniuses behind WWF2 thought they could make it even better. So they destroyed it. The game is now so crowded with awards and levels and challenges and a ton of crap that it makes playing the game a tedious disaster. There is so much extraneous garbage that it takes 10-20 seconds to load the board every time I switch to the game. I’m not talking about opening it from closed. I’m talking about switching from my email or messaging to the game that is already in progress. Now it even bogs down when I play a word. The whole screen will freeze up for 10-15 seconds before eventually moving on. The game locks up for 15 seconds if my opponent sends me a chat message while I’m playing! And when the game is over and you try to start a new game, you can’t tell if it’s working because there is no response to touching the new game button. So you hit it a couple times and the stupid thing eventually opens four or five new games. It’s frustrating and ridiculous. There should be a way to opt out of all those absurd “gaming” levels and challenges and crap. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It wasn’t and now you’ve broken it. So this time it’s up to you to go make it right. Oh and there should be some way to provide feedback to the developer beyond writing a review.
“Oops something went wrong”
by ;lkkj;lkj on 2020/07/25 13:16
I’ve had this message a couple of times, usually when trying to start a practice game. There is no way get rid of this open game, that you cannot play, that counts as one of your open practice games AND there is no way to contact the developer, outside of writing a review for the game itself, to help get rid of it. The last time this happened, they were responsive and got rid of the game for me. This time, however, not so much. I have had a practice game open, that I cannot play, for 189 days. I play the game every day. And other reviewers are indeed correct - the number of trollers has increased 10 fold over the past year or so. Now before I ever accept a game, I look up their profile to see when they became a member. If they’re new, I decline the game. I got tired of them holding up games for 10 days because I chose not to chat with them. A few are decent and will resign the game right away, but most are not. They will wait until the game resigns itself. I have put my settings so as NOT to be the daily match person, but they still find me. I sure with the developers could do something about this! And, I wish they’d close this practice game that’s been open for 189 days for me!
POINT ACCUMULATION
by CraftyVic on 2018/11/21 04:51
The reason I did’t give it five stars is because of the 1500 coin accumulation limit! I’m as avid and serious player and I feel like I’m being penalized for being a good player. I’m somewhat short on incentive to play harder/more often/longer because I’m maxed out on the coins I can accumulate. I think you should perhaps make up another tier of playing excellence by somehow either allowing serious players to accumulate more than 1500 coins, come up with some sort of incentive for players that repack 1500 coins or make another level of play available to those players that reach 1500 coins. I don’t usually ever buy anything from the store to spend my coins on and I’m sure there are others out there who have also maxed out their coin accumulation. So put on your thinking caps and come up with more incentives to use or accumulated coins on or provide a different level of place for those of us who attain 1500 coins and hold that balance for awhile! Also, right now it doesn’t appear to be working / I keep getting a message that there are no available plays, when they’re clearly ARE plays!! What’s up with that???
Delays and catfish
by StephanieS1227 on 2020/09/07 17:04
I play this game often and I enjoy it, but I have been noticing that when I play the lightning rounds with groups, I get an overwhelming amount of men sending me 1:1 games. I know for certain that some of them are Nigerian catfish masquerading as U.S. servicemen and surgeons who are working for the UN and on assignment overseas. I am extremely resourceful when it comes to investigating and can say without any uncertainty that the men are catfish. If anyone from WWF ops wants to discuss, I would be happy to reveal my sources. Also, when I play QuickPlay, my game lags - majorly. My board will still be loading and the opponent has 50 points before I can even look at my letters. Then, in between words, the board will load and load and by the time it finally does, the game is over and I have lost. Other times, it will say it’s searching for an opponent and I will close out of the game to restart and try again and a game is in progress and I’m about to lose, which wastes a turn. There are a lot of glitches and the catfishing needs to be addressed. For the time being, I have changed my photo to one of my dog to deter weirdos from sending me games. I have still received quite a few and I’m thinking I may need to be a bit of a catfish myself and change my photo to a sumo wrestler and my name to “Butch” or something of the like to play unscathed.
Honestly not the best
by Freaquent user on 2020/03/24 19:58
It has a lot of problems. There are weird challenges that you HAVE to participate in no matter what. Once, I decided to start a practice game and it glitched out so now I have no way of accessing it which means I can’t resign to fix the problem and I can’t make a new practice game either. Another time, I decided to play a game with a random person and for some reason, they added them to my friends list. But I didn’t search for their user name. I used the create game and pressed smart match. This would theoretically be in my game list, and I would have one match with them, and never see them again. There is no way to fix this that I know of. That’s another thing. It is very difficult to navigate the app, and you often can’t remember how to get to a certain place. Things can be glitchy at times, and in general, the app is missing a lot of thing that should be accessible through settings in the app. I’m sorry if this review was hard to read, I wrote it in five minutes and there is probably tons of mistakes. tl;dr Don’t get the app unless you really really need too. It really needs to be worked on. I don’t use the app any more, and don’t want to any time soon. Save your self time, confusion, and possibly anger, by not downloading it.
Step in the WRONG direction
by Picotek on 2017/12/30 04:21
This new version is so ugly. With the previous version I started getting dropped games even after I would make my move. Then read online that the fix was to delete and reinstall the app. Upon looking at for it in the App Store, now it's called Words With Friends 2? First of all, what a stupid name to change it to. But I reinstalled it and now I see my dropped games, but the look, colors, the size of everything is so obnoxious. Whoever redesigned the UI needs to go back to middle school. Actually, that's what it looks like; it looks like an obnoxious elementary crappy textbook with stuff all bright and obnoxiously big. Anyway, wish the developers gave an option to view stuff zoomed out or in a classic mode; where I used to be able to see like 7 games on the screen, now I see like two or maybe three and then have to scroll. Unnecessary. And totally ugly UI. And also, stuff like giving me a super light blue (almost white) background and then putting white text on top of that??? Who thought that would be a good design choice idea, that's terrible layout and design; I could barely read it. But finally when I did read it, it was to say that my app is ad-free. Ad-free or not it looks like crap and it's a step in the WRONG direction. Make things simple-looking and easy to read, not obnoxious and bloated. This update offers ZERO improvement to the enjoyment of the game.
Words 2
by lovingorca on 2019/11/29 13:15
I’m sick of being tricked into playing your AIs when I tap next game. It should be our choice not yours!!!!! Also I’ve noticed that words that I know are words get rejected. I would like to submit screenshots when this happens so you can fix the dictionary. Thank you. Also, why are the same ads repeated over and over again? Plus I’ve noticed small strip ad at bottom of game. What’s up with that? And why can’t I get rid of a Bot challenge? If we are unaware that the next button will start a bot challenge that I didn’t want. Then there’s no way to get rid of it. This is SO Irritating!!! Please fix this game! I get so sick of hitting pass over and over again so many time before the game will give up and start a rematch. IT’S Ridiculous! And irritating! And we can’t even resign from an AI game. We are forced to play with it. OH, AND STOP THE MATHES!!!!! I AM SICK OF OF GETTING YOUR BOTS PLAYERS I DONT HAVE IT CHECK MARKED! Fix it. We’re not able to add pictures, So we can’t show you what’s happening. Your game is also matching us with real players now. I ended up with one that started asking me personal questions. Aka, where are you from, what do you do for a living. You better fix this or I will uninstall it!!!! I’m trying too resign from a word challenge name of Bot, Joan of Ark. When I tap rep resign it put it back in my game. I give up! I’m so sick of your game forcing players I don’t know and bots on me!
The programmers don’t know the English language
by Tfeliot on 2020/08/31 00:00
It is frustrating enough playing this game because of the way they force their little rewards on you and you have to wait for those to process before you can continue playing. But worse than ever, is that I don’t think that these people are using any valid English dictionary to determine what is a word and what is not. I have an English writing degree and I can tell you that there of been multiple times when a word should have been acceptable and was not. These are words that were acceptable in the game of Scrabble, and I suggest the programmers start using Scrabble’s Dictionary or some other valid dictionary I have a feeling this is the result of programmers who have English as a second language. Very frustrating and I am considering quitting for this reason. Since I wrote the preceding words, the developer contacted me and told me that they use the Oxford English Dictionary and that they except 160,000 words. If they indeed used the Oxford English Dictionary, they would know that it has over 600,000 words in it. And they should also know that people who play word games are generally people who have a larger vocabulary than people who think there are only 160,000 words. Their response proved my point.
Great Game with Cool Things!
by RainbowKitty1000000 on 2020/03/31 21:02
This game is so fun because you can play a Scrabble-like game with friends and family. You can friend people, and when you start a game, you don’t like, have to stay on it forever. What I mean is, the other person might be taking a while and you get bored of just sitting and waiting. So, you can go out of the game and do something else while you are waiting. You can even start a different game with another person! So you can be playing TWO or more games at once! Also, while you are in a game, you can chat with your opponent. That can be helpful sometimes. You can also block, mute, or report someone while in chat. Another thing that you can do in a game is search up words in the dictionary that they have. This game also has many fun challenges and other extra things. You’ll figure it out if you get this fun game!So far I have even learned two new words: fete and hoons. This game really can teach you new words and things. I really encourage people to get this fun and awesome Scrabble-like game, and now you can play Scrabble virtually with faraway friends and family!
Fun game but way too many technical glitches!
by dcinsa31 on 2019/02/06 12:51
For the most part this is a fun game to play with your friends to pass he time, take a break, waiting at the doctors office but the adds are horrific; waiting 30-60 on between each move while playing an add is ridiculous; some just stop so you have to get out of the app and back in. If you did opt in the one ONLY time the no adds was offered with original app for 1.99 you are SOL. It should have offered with the real ease of WW2. WW2, although in Beta mode needs to stay there for a while as it still freezes when the host is talking (which by the way they do way toooooo much) and at times you have missed the question all together... so guess what? You’re done. I just do it for fun... not 2.20! People make comments on iG and FB all the time which go unanswered. Example.... 7 Feb 2019 “down for maintenance.” It has yet to be posted on IG but on FB ppl wanna an approximate time for the outage. Common courtesy you give your users an estimated time; even if you over estimate. I gave 3 stars because I don’t have a lot of problems other ppl have. And the weekly goals are INSANE. I just think you can do a better job communicating with your users. The only communication I’ve seen is for positive feedback. Thanks

I love to play this game to relax; however, this game frustrate me instead. The achievement system is not reliable. I finished level 20 and should have to 21. In my profile still shows me as level 20. I am now working to earn level 22. It’s very frustrating when one works hard to achieve a level and your system takes away. In different device it’s shows correct level 21, but in this device I am using it shows level 20. I delete the app and reloaded the app and is still showing my image with a 20. Also, there are too many words that are allowed which aren’t really words. When I look for definition there is none. This game allows foreign language words when I am playing in English. I understand that there are some foreign words that have been adopted and integrated into English language and are acceptable to use, but the words I see are definable not in common use. I wish the developers would take the time to read the reviews. I read a few and they all have the same issues in common. Please read the reviews! You ask for a rating, but you don’t read the reviews. This a great game to play, but you need to fix all the glitches. We are all telling you the problems. Listen to us .
I love this game, but......
by Cindy FL on 2019/10/22 00:41
Great game, honestly, it's a great game. I love it and definitely think it was worth the upgraded ad free version. However, I have to caution people against ANY of the in-game purchases. My husband and I both have it. Guess what. He can buy power-ups for SUBSTANTIALLY fewer coins than I can buy them for. He can play the Solo games early for SUBSTANTIALLY fewer coins than I can. And when I ask support WHY? All they can say is that they occasionally try to see what works best. Well, there's no "occasionally" about it. His coins have ALWAYS bought more than my coins will buy. So...though this is a terrific game, be aware that they pick and choose which players get more "bang for their buck" as far as coins are concerned. I feel somewhat manipulated, and will NEVER actually purchase any coins. I will slowly accumulate them in the game, and purchase power-ups slower than my husband because the folks who run the games can pick and choose those who have more "buying" power. Though it's a great game, the inequality they manufacture is kinda frustrating. I do need to add, their tech support has always been helpful. That's an important part of these online games, and they do well with that.
Scammers
by Lapcat4 on 2020/07/13 22:32
I love the App but I found there are men trying to pick up women and more likely scam them for money. But last week I had a new type of scammer. It was a lady who said she just moved and wanted to make new friends. I decided to chat with her and she asked if we could chat on Google Hangouts. I am not connected to that form of social media so I told her I was on Instagram. It just got weirder and weirder. She said she knew Ellen and if I would like to appear on her show. I asked a few more questions to see where she was going with this and she actually had pictures of her with Ellen. She said she could raise 5000 for my transportation. I said I wasn’t traveling now because of the virus. The next day she asked for my SS number, Address, Email, and phone number. She was persistent and her flow of conversation would change calling me Miss and friend etc. I told her I don’t give out my SS number and blocked her on Instagram and WWF. I would have never thought this type of scam would happen on WWF so just a word of warning. I told her and the men who have appeared that I am 75 years old so that would turn some of them off! I now hope that my age would give me some wisdom.
Women Beware!!
by Capricorn011169 on 2020/01/29 04:30
Love this game been playing 9 years. In the past year there have been a buttload of foreign men starting games with me then ask to know me “more better” how’s my husband & kids? Where am I playing from? What do I do for a living? How old am I? Etc. I accept game & will answer not trying to be rude to anyone but answer in short half truths hoping they get the hint I don’t want to talk to them & I’m a single lesbian not looking for a man. Obvious by the way they talk they are not from USA but say they are or if called out they say born not in USA but currently live in USA but are working overseas and their wife usually died in car accident or cancer or they are divorced and always have at least 1 kid. I am honest with them I’m lesbian & not looking for a relationship of any kind but then they ask if I have hangouts so I made up an account with email just for that app. Once on hangouts some have said how much they love me & looking for a mom for their kid or ask for money, iTunes or google play cards or ask for my phone provider account so they can “pay with their own money” to get a phone. All I can say is WOW this is ridiculous! I report them on WWF as soon as they ask if I have hangouts.
Complaint/Review
by Snoopy4969 on 2020/04/21 04:30
I loved WWF2 prior to the most recent changes. It appears the personal part of it is being removed. I enjoyed competing against my friends I’ve been playing with and now the competition level isn’t there....what fun is it with numbers against people you don’t even know. The sport for me is gone. Also, I cannot find people I played with before without searching and searching. It is becoming as if, making it better is making it worse. Also, to play a game pretty much daily throughout the day/night and get a few tokens that don’t even allow you to have a free turn is ridiculously cheap to me and not worthy of the effort put forth. Make it worth while. I’ve been playing Scrabble for a short period of time and the rewards make it a lot of fun and makes you want to play more for those rewards. Also, for people to start a game with you just to “chat” and when you don’t or not the way they want you have to have them drag your numbers down and hold that game hostage until it expires almost two weeks later is a bit long and ahold be addressed to allow the person that declines not be punished by “losing” that game.
Beware the Scammers in Chat
by Mrs.Box on 2019/12/27 03:37
Like another reviewer stated, the chat feature is annoying with random people wanting to engage in chat. They ask lots of personal questions. My experiences have revealed that most of the men who initiate chat are scammers. One in particular uses multiple profile names, but the same profile picture. Another one I had the misfortune of trusting, became very hostile and agitated when I finally figured out he was a scammer. He actually said he loved me and wanted me to be the mother of his son. And yet another one wanted me to travel to the UK to meet him. Some red flags to look for is, they have a new account, have only been playing WWF for a short period. They create new aliases and new accounts. They always want to know what you do for a living and they almost always claim to be a widower. Often times too, they have very high scores/standings because they cheat. (There are apps people use to cheat). So I no longer chat with these guys whose profiles seem suspicious to me. But as for the game .... I love playing Words and I have discovered new friends and reconnected with old friends playing Words.
Wordy review
by 219 User on 2017/11/25 15:23
I really like this game. 5+ stars for sure and more like 10 stars. The continual improvements are great and positive and have never have gone into the negative. The new game wwf's.2 has got a lot of visual improvements and I like the "new" sounds. Personally I don't like how the game repeats by showing me what the other games are or new things etc. My suggestion for that would be to put all that on the settings page. Then a person can go there to discover what's new or how many badges they have etc. rather than all that interfacing when one first starts the app. but that's just a suggestion coming from me. Other players may be totally fine with the way it is which is still pretty awesome. I couldn't at this point ever give this app/game a negative review. It's just too well designed and plays well. Thank you for the many hours of pleasure and like another reviewer said, this game really helps to learn words. I have sent in a few word suggestions that didn't get added. Not sure why but I thought I'd bring that to the developers attention. Once again, thank you very much for an outstanding app.
Love the game, hate the players
by Bambifaline on 2019/02/05 05:51
This game is great, and I’ve made friends with some super cool people who I’ve enjoyed chatting with and playing against. I love our in game chats and our competitive banter, that being said; a lot of my games are wasted on scammers or dudes who are only playing to meet dates. A player is only allowed so many games playing at any given time, and it’s REALLY frustrating to have a score of 305 to 70 against a scammer or date seeking dude who ends the game when they realize you aren’t going to chat with them on hangouts. That brings me to my point; when you DO try to report an offender who is clearly scamming, just playing to get a date, is being mean or vulgar, or who has stolen another persons identity (I’ve seen the same profile pic in 3 games at the same time) etc, it’s slow to report and buggy to the point where you can’t report the offender at all. At the very least put out a disclaimer so the nice ladies of this game don’t get scammed. This game is becoming the next Nigerian prince scam for grandmas and that’s really not cool and shame on y’all for not doing something about it.
A good game gone bad
by Robgonzo on 2018/07/12 22:12
Words with Friends is a fun game. I’ve had various versions of it since it first came out. It has a fun easy interface to use and is very intuitive. I have a lot of friends that I play with and often have at least half a dozen games going at once. The stats and rankings and records of games is cool too. My biggest complaint and the reason I rate it low is all the gewgaws, side games and challenges. I find them very annoying and distracting. They pop up after every move, telling you you’ve earned coins and challenges and seeds. It’s a pain to even open the app sometimes because you’re hit with them right away. Plus, I can’t prove it but it seems like, if you’re on a streak you start getting really bad letters. I’ve taken multiple screenshots where I’ve had nothing but sets of 2 or 3 vowels. It feels like the are pushing you to use one of the various power ups because that only started happening to me when I got the latest version of the game. Like I said I’ve been playing this game since 2010. If there were a way to turn off all the challenges and events and mystery box crap this app would get a much higher rating from me. As it is now, I only remain because I like to play and its very popular with my friends. It’s like facebook that way.
Only fix what is broken
by Beeber22 on 2018/03/14 10:18
Likes: I really enjoy the game and concept. I like that there are more rewards earned, but find them to be traded at a premium - I realize you want to make a profit, but you could definitely humor frequent players with a better value. Issues: My issues are with the screen design; namely the letter tray at the base of the screen often causes the screen of my iPad to go up with the swiping motion made from moving tiles to the board from the base of the screen. Despite trying not to, it happens repeatedly. The tray is nice at the bottom, but doesn’t work well with Apple’s swiping feature. Secondly, depending on whether you press on the face of the friend or on the line where the game information is recorded, determines whether you start a new game or continue play in the current game. This game option/feature is not ideally executed. I am indifferent to the visual effects of the new game design. Most people aren’t fired up about change, so gamers are skeptical when developers attempt to fix and improve on something not broken. It is generally considered a fail if after adjusting to the updated game or new version, players prefer the prior one. Moral of the story: only fix what is broken. 😊
Ads trap you, getting worse.
by Python_in_PJs on 2020/01/07 20:27
First off, I really enjoy the game. I’ve even been thinking about buying some coins so I can get more power ups, but the price is just a bit too much for pretend coins in a silly game. I’d probably be willing to pay about 1/5 what they charge for coins, and I’d be a repeat customer too, but it’s not quite worth it for what they’re charging currently. As for there being ads, don’t mind them, and I don’t think there are too many (it’s just 1 ad per turn, and it’s the cost of playing for free, right?). But increasingly they’ve been placing ads that have no discernible way to exit (the X is invisible or something), so when you try to get out, it magically redirects you to the App Store or some website you didn’t want to go to. I’m not talking about exiting early. I’m talking about after the ad has played, I want to be able to exit back to the game. Now they’ve got an ad that shifts the screen sideways and has no way to exit. Again, I have no problem with there being ads, and I’ve even bought things from ads on this app, but I’ll never buy something from an ad that traps me then redirects me to somewhere I don’t want to go. They should require advertisers to have a clearly visible way of exiting the ad at the end. It’s frustrating. If this is fixed my rating would go to 4 or 5 stars.
Why so buggy???
by newbhikku on 2020/03/01 22:08
This game used to be relaxing and fun to take my mind off things for awhile and then they kept tinkering and tinkering and tinkering with it - adding “levels” and “lightning play” all of which would be great if not so infuriatingly buggy. I would go on with the dozens of ways that bugs make it unplayable but these are already on dozens of forums and Facebook. As someone in IT who develops apps (yup it’s true) I can’t understand how these developers ignore the bugs. The one which finally prompted me to write this review instead of deleting the app for a week or so which is what I normally do is the levels bug that they claim is not a bug. This is one in which myself and some other very good players I know are stuck at lower levels than some very, frankly, stupid friends. You know the ones, the ones who always leave open triple word scores, never take advantage of high point letters to make high scores, whose idea of a good word is something like “broom”. How they suddenly woke up one day and got to level 20 and up while we who are killing it all the time are at levels 10-12 is mind numbing. My 75 year old grandma got to level 20 and said she has no idea what that means. Grrrrr. Anyway, done ranting. I’ll give two stars since i obviously still play for now.
Uninstalling...
by JordanZr on 2018/08/18 13:37
The amount of notifications this app produces is maddening. I don’t need 3-4 notifications a day about some in-game event. I’ve turned off all the notification settings in the game and it’s still happening. I’ve had to go into the global settings/notifications and only left ‘badge app icon’ turned on. This app would turn the screen on for my phone multiple times a day to show me a useless banner notification. I don’t care about your Eggstravaganza event and wouldn’t play it out of spite alone at this point. Not to mention the infuriatingly long tutorial based ad for final fantasy that happens EVERY time you complete a move. This is the only ad I’ve ever gotten. It’s faster to force quite the app and relaunch than work your way through the ad. The notifications even after all of my efforts to restrict them to something manageable are just too much. I’m finishing my current games and uninstalling. Edit: I received a developer response. Pity they couldn’t be bothered to read the third sentence of my review where I already went and turned off all the in game notifications. The problem is those settings didn’t stop the notifications I wanted to have stopped. Sending me a link to an FAQ to do something I already did isn’t helpful.
LONELY HEARTS CLUB WWF?
by Midgettwife on 2020/03/12 12:35
This game used to be fun. This game used to be just about playing with friends, and maybe I’d get the occasional request from a stranger, and that would be okay also. The ads and game rewards have always been annoying and that hasn’t gotten any better, but that has taken a back seat to the dating site that this game has seemed to become overnight. It’s seriously ruining the whole experience for me. At first I would accept the chat only to be grilled about everything from my marital status to my religion. I appreciate the mute button but it’s not enough. There has to be some way to set some sort of privacy settings so these men can’t bother women who don’t want to be bothered to begin with. It’s become really creepy. Can we maybe accept them as friends first before ruining our stats and innundating our games with lonely men looking to hook up, who then abandon the game when you ignore them? If it weren’t for the real friends I play with and the good games I have with other women, I frankly would ditch this all together. This game gives me the creeps every time I sign in. These pathetic men have sucked the fun right out of the game, and so have you, for allowing this to continue, despite all the complaints. Shame on WFF for ruining a perfectly good game.
Words With Friends 2
by Dorajane76 on 2018/06/21 23:51
An outgrowth of Scrabble, this game is developing through time. Updates keep changing it, sometimes for the better, sometimes I wish they would have left a feature the way it was. Whereas Scrabble didn’t allow a dictionary on the premises and I never learned a new word, Words has its own dictionary. When you or your friend enter a word it’s meaning is given along with an oral pronunciation. This gives you an opportunity to learn vocabulary. The dictionary is in a development process, so sometimes an entry hasn’t reached its ultimate perfection. All improvements take time. A feature that I would have liked to keep was the return of letters to their original placement. If I was developing a word and it needed more tweaking to make it fit I could touch return and it came back to the bottom just as it was. An update lost that feature. Now the word comes back scrambled so that I have to take time to redo it. Much care is put into the development and execution of this game. I recommend it for anyone who wants to keep on learning in an enjoyable way.
New update is lame
by mommamiax2 on 2018/09/22 16:25
I have been a WWF fanatic for several years. I loved the game. When the WWF2 app came out, I downloaded it and hated everything about it. The it looks like the Scrabble app (which I have never liked). The coins option is stupid, there is nothing worthwhile to purchase with them. I deleted it within a day or two, but the old app kept trying to force the new app on me! I opened my game this week only to find that it has been changed into WWF2. I hate it. It pushes playing one on one with the game, it’s play back is ridiculous, not even slightly a challenge. It forced the one on one on me so many times, I played it in the hopes that it will stop forcing it on me. The new graphics are confusing, too much garbage on the screen. I just want to play scrabble with my friends. I don’t need flashy garbage. I can’t find my games half the time. When I won a game, I chose the option to play them again at the end of the game. I started the new challenge, and it tried to force me to start another one again with the same person. Not sure how much longer I will be playing this app anymore. You’ve ruined it. No longer about challenging your mind and your friends and now is all about flashy graphics, stupid ads, and worthless coins that buy you nothing of value. Epic failure on Zynga. Give us back the OG WWF!!!!
Addictive and educational.
by Lemony-Limey on 2018/10/04 23:54
Besides the fact that there’s an ad for every word you play and you have to pay $9.99 for every 30 days of no ads, this game is addictive and I’m really learning....like a LOT. So much so, its not even about winning for me. I accept matches with people who have been playing 10x as long as me, who I know will beat me, just to watch them and see how they play and learn from them AND learn new words. I’m obsessed with the lightning round as well. This game is amazing. I played the old version a few years ago and obviously it didn’t impact me because I never re-downloaded it. This new version is quite a renovation. I love it! There are some glitches. Like sometimes the ’x’ that allows you to exit out of the ad doesn’t show up and I have to close and re-open the app. A lot of the ads have fake a ’x’, too. If you don’t catch it, it tricks you into clicking the ad and opens a new window. Thats annoying and deceptive. I really wish there was a one-time fee to remove ads. I really don’t want to pay $9.99 for a 30 day ad-free ”bundle.” Sounds like a subscription to me but it’s advertised as a ”bundle.” Every rose has its thorn. :D
Great game! Horrible ads!!!!!!!
by MrHOpus on 2018/01/20 01:51
The game is great. But there should be an option to pay for ad free. The old version had this. We loved that version and resisted moving to the new game for that very reason. Had I not been forced to upgrade to a newer phone that will not run the old version, I would still be very happy with that one. However, since being forced to use the newer version, I have found it to be an enjoyable improvement. I love the sounds and some of the options like hindsight, but they are not worth the insufferable, loud apps that auto play after the game sometimes. I don’t even mind the ads that promote other possible games I might like. But the video ads are the worst thing. I can’t mute my phone quickly enough, and the is no mute option. It is annoying enough that I will just quit playing at all during the hours that those ads show up. Plus, some of them have a “skip” option that just doesn’t work. I guess if you make the skip button small enough it gets folks to accidentally click through to whatever that is it keeps taking me to and they somehow profit from errant clicks even though I immediately dismiss that other page and go right back to the game. A good move would be to offer the “pay to play ad free” option, or at the very least eliminate the video ads.
I have a suggestion!🌟🌟💫
by 5 stars for Word Cookies!❤️ on 2017/11/16 22:26
If this suggestion is bad, please don’t give me hate. Anyway, I had a dream a few nights ago, where on Words With Friends, you could create a game, and there would be a chance of you getting a board with a special spot on the board to put a letter on. On that spot you can only put an N. Now, you can put other letters on it, but it wouldn’t count for the bonus. Right under that special N spot is a regular spot, and then under that spot is another spacial N spot. To get the full bonus, you put another N on the second N spot. Now, this seems hard. What would the special bonus be? Is it worth it? The special bonus is: each N spot counts for 1 quadruple word score. You only get the score if there is an N in that spot. If an N is on both spots, your word is x8. And that’s not all, once you play the word you will get free 5 Swap+’s. I will let Words With Friends choose where they want to put these spots, if this is a good idea. P.S. Sorry if my review name is 5 stars for Word Cookies, I used it for another review and it won’t let me change it.
Words with Friends
by Joanie Honey on 2020/04/26 17:29
I love to play, but I have some complaints. You have made the weekly challenge too difficult and it’s not worth it. It was nice when it was 7000 or so, but raising it to over 13,000 is over the top. After achieving this goal several times, the rewards are pathetic compared to other events. I no longer care about getting there. When are you going to finish this new dictionary that you have been updating? for years??? You allow words that I can’t find in any other dictionary and ignore words that are real. Why Is Texas allowed but no other state. Why is some obscure town or river in some faraway country ok, but not all rivers in the U.S. or other modern countries. Everybody calls raccoons, coons, except you, as an example of my frustration. Why are French words and other foreign words acceptable, but most Spanish words are not accepted? You started awarding me magnifying glasses a few months ago with no icon to use them. Magically they appeared on my games 2 days ago. I have 99+ that I could have been using. I love the word challenge and the monthly challenge. Also I like the flash challenges.
Game is screwed up on my ipad
by Selvish on 2020/02/18 19:25
Every time I go to play on my ipad, the game is not formatted correctly. I go to hit the drop down for rewards and it drops and goes right back up, so I can’t click anything in it. So I uninstall, then reinstall and it works. Next time I go to play, in the same day, it’s not formatted correctly again! I have to uninstall/reinstall like EVERY TIME I PLAY! My iPad is current and up to date. I am connected to wifi. I try to send them a note to explain, even have screen shots of the weirdness, but in the messaging part in the help section, it WONT LET ME ATTACH MY PICS! Then they make all these suggestions which I have done already, and ask me to send pics, and I literally just told them it won’t let me. I do, in fact, know how to attach pics, and when I say it won’t let me, it won’t let me! I’m not an idiot! (Well, maybe I am, because I keep playing and it’s so friggin frustrating!). Works fine on my iphone, but not iPad. ALSO, I never get the “pop-up” events on my iPad. They are only available on iphone. Same with the new purple coins where if you click it, it suggests where to play and highlights the letters to use to make the word. Those NEVER SHOW UP ON MY IPAD, but are there and available to use on my iphone. WHAT THE FRICK IS GOING ON? BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TO WWF2
New version limits extras
by snowlake14 on 2017/11/21 00:59
While there are some good things about the new version of the game, I’ve noticed after a couple weeks of using it that it’s much harder to get coins, which can then be used to use additional features like hindsight, etc. In the old version of the game the daily bonus was 15 coins, which allowed for at least one “extra” feature to be purchased. The new daily gift is usually only 2 coins—not even enough to buy one hindsight. So since this new version has been released I’ve noticed I have way fewer opportunities to use the extra features like hindsight, which I miss. While I do play this game pretty much daily, I often don’t play enough in a week to complete the challenge, which provides 100 coin bonus. Also, the new solo challenge is fun, but once you complete the challenge you can no longer play until the next solo challenge is released, which I hope is changed. Why not let the player rematch with the computer challengers even after they’ve beaten them once? But in general the game is really fun and I’m glad the developers are working to improve it all the time.
Sad

I have to login and logout all the time in order to get messages between people that I play with on the game. It tends to freeze a lot. It’s not a very smooth game or well-developed app. It’s getting really annoying to have to login logout login just to get messages because someone is playing on a different device a kindle to be exact. Stop with the fancy upgrades and make it more simple basic I love playing this game and keeping in contact with friends but you can’t message them if they’re on a different device it’s really annoying and I do agree that they won’t respond of this. Come on developers you’re smart people right figure this out dumb down the game make it simple get your graphics better get the color of the game better so you can actually see what you’re doing. How come every time I have to login I have to go through and delete the games I’ve already deleted that’s annoying once I deleted them they should stay off the game it’s annoying fix it I know you told me in the past it’s all on your servers will get it figured out so I don’t have to keep going through a whole process just to play one game. Now I can’t login it won’t connect to the server one thing after the other this for real I just want to play words with friends with my friends
Love playing it, but not looking at it
by Levans8371 on 2017/12/09 06:19
I do very much enjoy the game. Not only is it a fun way to learn, keep your mind active and challenge yourself, it also helps you stay in touch with friends and family. I may go a week or two not communicating with others if left to initiate conversations on my own. But, I definitely don’t skip taking my turn every day and sending off a quick message using the in game chat feature. Thank you for providing that option. Personal preference, but I do not like the new version, WWF2. The colors, graphics, etc., feel more like a kids game than a game for intelligent adults. I don’t give a rip about some strangers high score or what the popular words are. Put these somewhere else if you must have them. I prefer that space to be used for in game stats like words played and definitions. These two areas should take up the entire column. If you feel you must keep other stats then make them relevant to me. Show high scores for my friends so I can congratulate them, or track the highest scoring word for the current game rather than saving it until the end.
I lost my account and what’s up with theses scammers??
by JJake87 on 2018/12/12 18:58
What’s going on with WWF? I lost all my games and my account too. I had to start over and I’ve been playing some people for years and years. Luckily i was able to find a few and I now have a whole new list of people to play. NOW...here’s my problem every day I’m getting 3 sometimes 4 players that are the”scammers”. They all have the same story. Work for Exxon Mobil, are widowers or divorced wit a child that’s in boarding school and are quite insistent that i download “hangouts”. I’ve said no and they still try. I’ve been taking screenshots of them seeing as there are quite a few. I even played their game and tried to scam the scammer. Today i decided not to let them go on so i said “Let me guess, you work in the oil field, you’re a widower, you have a child and would like to get to know me better on hangouts. Ive actually seen your pic on a forum all about you scammers” And just like that he disappeared. But guess what? I have another trying now. They’re relentless.
The game is okay but...
by AMechelle24 on 2018/07/16 21:37
The game is fun to play and keeps me busy but a few things need to be changed. I think that you should give people two minutes to play back in a game. Some people take longer that 2 days to play back and it gets aggravating because if you are playing a game like Scrabble which is similar to Words With Friends you should play as if you are playing it with an actual board right next to you. So if you were playing the game in real life you wouldn’t take longer than 2 days to play. Another thing that needs to change about the game is the fact that you can’t unfriend somebody because sometimes i start games with people i don’t know and think that i’m about to play a good game but if i play with someone i expect them to play back and forth with me, not come back five days later with a 55 point word and also some people always stay number one in the standings without giving anyone else a chance to be #1, not even for a day. By the way, i am specifically talking about: Owensbigrob44 and Annie🎶 Overall, the game is fun and keeps be busy and also teaches me some new words. Great game, but some things need to change.
Great game
by LarryLuv21 on 2020/01/22 07:42
I dislike the chat app!!! For some people this is a dating site. It is not. I do see you put up a mute option but I agree with the first review from “anthy “ as bd we are not trying to be rude but I just want to play the game not hook up with complete strangers . The ads are ridiculous. Too many. I first started this game in 2012 with no ads. Now we pay to get rid of ads for just 30 days or watch the same ads over and over every turn. I had become so disgusted with the chatting I put everybody I play on “mute conversation “ because the predators are real!! Just remove the chat option. Not needed. Honestly take a vote on the game and I can guarantee the true players want it gone like me! There is Snapchat or tinder for those purposes. I see you say you have new game events? My version of words which is words 2 does not get these options of a new game wheel, new challenges? My computer is upgraded but not this game. Unless I need a new version? Please consider these option words people so we can play a game instead of watching ads or blocking people etc.... just a thought!
Excessive Ads
by SuprKity2DRescue on 2018/01/15 07:33
Every SINGLE play you do you get an ad right after without fail. I have an iPhone 8 and often times the ad will freeze my game forcing me to force close or mess up the screen, forcing me to force close as well. I don’t have this issue with any other app on my phone, even with games way bigger. I get they want to make money and it’s free, but the ads are SO annoying. You are bombarded with apps constantly and honestly I never do this, but I’d be willing to pay a $1 just to remove them. Aside from that it’s easy to use and easy to play without making in app purchases. Get rid of the excessive ads or allow us a way to remove them altogether and it’s a 5 Star game. As of right now though I’m debating on just deleting it because the ads are frustrating and often mess up what could be a quick game. This might as well be called Ads with Friends 2 because you’re going to spend 95% of the time watching them, failing at closing them, or having to reload the game. The in app transactions offer an unfair advantage to people with $$ and the AI clearly always have better letters than you to encourage spending, I can ignore all of that if you just take out your ridiculous amount of ads. Somebody must be in crippling debt in that company or something.
Sad changes
by JesusLovesUs:) on 2018/11/13 18:32
After playing for over 2 years I have deleted my app. I wish there were more incoming challengers to keep me interested but the real reason I got fed up was the solo challenges. My bs meter went through the roof. As you play a set list of bots, you literally have to wait approximately 24hours between matches. The challenge is only available for a set number of days and even if I was very on top of the app I would still be placed into the occasional impossible match. While I would breeze through almost every bot, periodically the game would decide to give me impossible letters. If I found the top scoring word on every play I would still lose. My power ups wouldn’t help. It was a pre-determined loss. There were also pre-determined wins of course, but the losses were so frustrating. After losing you either have to wait another day or pay to play again. Why don’t we just keep the games/words/letters random? I hate feeling like I’m being controlled and manipulated by the apps algorithm. Too much bs. I cannot prove it but I am pretty certain some of these same “good letter vs bad letter” draws played into the player matches as well. Good luck and have fun if you download anyway. Not for me.

Updates and upgrades
by Beccaria87 on 2020/09/23 12:03
Stop with all the confusing updates and upgrades. They’re annoying and make playing far more complicated than it needs to be. “Collect these random objects to unlock a goal that can then be used to unlock a prize that may be worth 2 coins!” Or my favorite “get your daily prize so on the last day of the month you can earn 1 coin!”
Best Hint on playing
by Marybuzz on 2020/09/23 11:53
Do not play through Facebook. If you play as a normal player without FB interface the scammers and trollers are gone . You still have your friends and create new ones, and then the game plays pure. Facebook interfacing ruins the game. PS I’ve been playing on line Scrabble since Pogo.com days and Words with Friends since it’s inception. It was all fun until the trollers and scammers got mixed into it through FB. Now I play without FB interface. It’s fun again. No headaches or men bothering me or useless games starting and stopping. Do the same.
WOrds with friends 2

I’ve been playing this game since 2013. This last version has way to many bugs. When the notification shows up in my iPhone, and I press on it, WW2 opens up and I play that game, when I try to pass to another game the games button is stuck. The game won’t move. I’ve got to literally close the iPhone and reopen it 5 minutes after. Please help
Great game...but...
by Germanicus011 on 2020/09/23 10:31
The only issue I have with this game is that people will play words that aren’t technically words at all. For example, someone played the word “errants” for 79 points despite the fact that the stupid game is saying it’s an official words with friends word, but an actual definition isn’t available yet. There’s no reason for this to be going on in a game like this. It’s cheating essentially regardless of what the game says about the word. Shouldn’t ever happen. If I could upload the screenshot I would. I gave this game only two stars as this could seriously put players at an unfair advantage and if nobody double checks it like I did, I’m sure they would never fix the problem.
Are you guys reading these bad reviews?

Getting More and More Annoying
by Hemulen52 on 2020/09/23 04:29
Not talking about the ads. It’s the nagging and notifications that are ruining my enjoyment of this game. There was already the notification that pops up EVERY TIME you choose to swap letters telling you about the cheat feature to swap without losing your turn. Now there is a “stickers” feature that no one I play against is using and I don’t care about. I’m now getting nagged every other play with an animation calling my attention to the stickers. PLEASE stop with the nagging or allow your users to acknowledge the feature exists and not be hassled anymore Does Zynga have a user experience team?

Great Game if You Got Rid of Scammers
by Taintedtiara on 2020/09/23 03:04
I've gotten 2-4 game requests per day from men who have no intention of playing the game. They get angry when you don't respond to chats or their endless tedious questions. To weed out these pervy players who keep making fake profiles to harass women, please consider putting an algorithm in place to 1. prevent new players from using the chat feature until they have attained several levels/games won, and 2. if anyone has been blocked by several players, chances are it's because they are harassing people. Once someone gets a certain number of blocks, please consider suspending their access. On the flip side, male friends of mine say profiles with attractive women donthe same thing to them, feigning interest and asking for money. Again, algorithms limiting the chat feature or monitoring blocked users should help here.
Stay on mute

Waste of time
by ritemomo on 2020/09/23 00:59
The game is set up so every time a player plays a word, an ad shows up. When you tap the X in the upper right corner of the ad, another ad pops up or Safari appears. A big waste of time trying to wade through the ads to continue a game only to go through the same cycle, again. I quit!
Stupid emoji stickers
by HWeird on 2020/09/23 00:47
Please get rid of those stupid emoji stickers. Every time you play you have to hit skip.At least put it somewhere where you don’t have to hit skip every time. And all the pop-ups for different games and features. I have the paid words with friends and it’s getting ridiculous

What are the gold stars for?
by GranEllen on 2020/09/23 00:34
I love to play this game and collect prizes I can use to gain an advantage. I keep winning gold stars, but haven’t been able to find out what they’re good for. Can you clue us in? I tried to enter the word “lythe,” but it was rejected. It means soft, flexible. Please add it.
Great game
by Canterburygirl on 2020/09/22 23:44
Love playing, but I have a few complaints. If a word does not have a definition or common use, then it can’t be considered a word. That really bugs me. And stop littering up my screen with silly games I don’t ask to play.

Awesome game. I only just started playing the end of last year. However it is very challenging at times. Can keep me occupied for hours.
Doesn’t always load
by RiazSibtainSyed on 2020/09/22 21:55
I do love playing this game, but I only give three stars because the Word Wheel event won’t ever load for me.

Loud ads- phone on silent 😡
by Lilsurfergirlll on 2020/09/22 19:46
I love this game, but it is BEYOND annoying how I have my phone on silent and half your ads start blaring out music at me. It’s maddening enough I almost want to delete it and quit playing. My phone is on silent for a reason, respect that.
Violent ads promoting massacre killing & gun violence
by CY Chu on 2020/09/22 18:55
I love this game until the massacre killing and gun violence ads show up. With all the gun violence we have in this country, these type of violent infused game should have no place in the market. Promoting it says a lot about the company owns word 2 with friends. App deleted.
I play the ENGLISH version
by Luvtn on 2020/09/22 18:09
So why are the Hebrew, Grecian, Arabic alphabet included, as are coins from Tibet, but can’t use the word Zion, Spanish words frequently used in America??? Lots of obscure foreign words! Scottish word loe is unacceptable? Though frequently used in America. If you are in a heated battle of words with a friend who most times wins and you ask for help, it will outline the letters to use. I used them and the App has the audacity to say “oh by the way there was a better choice!” Of course it is one of those obscure foreign languages! Grr
Rage Against The Machine
by Monty Tiger on 2020/09/22 18:01
In general I love and am good at word games, I have a fairly decent if not excellent vocabulary; I play the "Practice" version as I'm tired of guys in particular sending stupid messages - I'm here for the words. Why I gave it only one star is, I play the so called "English/American" version and more than half the words "the machine" plays are words they themselves have no definition for, the other half are either foreign or extremely obscure/not in current use on any level of society words. On top of which - I, In fact know many words in English - in current use, which they do not accept (oh yes, I can define and put them in sentences too - in fact if you google the words I know they're right there in plain sight - unlike theirs who they insist are "real" but have no definitions for. And yet I have no recourse but to accept their stupid unknown obscure (can't even look it up) words, while they deny my real ones. Who runs this Dog and Pony Show anyway?!?
Please remove the smiley emoji!
by Snic03p00 on 2020/09/22 17:46
They have now put on smiley emojis to send to people. Really? Why? It’s in the way. I’m never going to send one during this game. I have used them in occasional text, but I’m not 10 and do not find the need to use them in everything. Please, Please remove it!!!! And do not add unnecessary stuff to the game. This alone is making me rethink of whether to continue what has been a long run here. There is also something else, not that I would quit over, but, it’s crazy. Has this turned into a dating site and no one told me? I have had so many men try to pick me up. It’s ‘WORDS’, guys! Maybe they get lost or can’t read. I don’t know. I’m confused. Go to the dating websites. Also why aren’t the reviews in order? Just asking.
App Freezes
by ACLyons on 2020/09/22 17:16
Every time I play a word, my app freezes. I can’t use Hindsight, Rematch, or go to Next Games. I force close the app, and then next turn it happens again. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, I have updated it, everything that can be done. I send messages to tech support, and what they tell me is the above which I have done lots and lots of times. They never even mention the issue I ask about. It never get resolved. No one ever offers any solution that works.

The Game is Getting Harder to Play
by PS1913 on 2020/09/22 16:14
It seems like the developers are fishing for the next killer feature. But the cost is that it’s killing the gameplay. Now it seems like no matter what you do, you win some kind of prize or get some kind of McGuffin (like a page or a leaf or a seashell or whatever). It wouldn’t be so bad if it was easy to opt out of all that junk, but it’s kind of annoying to play with more than one or two people because every time I play a move now I also have to confirm that I don’t want to send a sticker. Then, if I breathed, I win some kind of prize or I have to collect apples for the story mode (I guess). I have no idea why the story thing even exists. Again, I don’t hate that it’s there - I hate that I can’t just not use it. The game features are getting to be worse than the ads. I mean at least with the ads, you can pay couple bucks and not have to see them again.

I like this game but from now on every time I try to play Quick Play, the app freezes, and I have to restart only to find that it started the round right away for the other guy and they either already won or have a hundred point head start, the app loses a star.
Classic game style please
by bkalbe on 2020/09/22 11:37

Fix Apple Pencil on iPadOS 14
by narso310 on 2020/09/22 08:39
Used to work mostly well with Apple Pencil in iPadOS 13, now I just get useless scribbles on the screen. Have to use my finger to move tiles. Also, even in iOS 13 I couldn’t tap the “next game” buttons with the Pencil. Also would be nice if the “reward” screens were skippable or just a notification that didn’t take up the whole screen. I don’t really care about them, I just want to play my moves. Once Pencil support is fixed I’ll give this game a 5 stars again.
Good basic game; too much extras
by duckczn on 2020/09/22 04:39
The basic game is fun. I get tired of all of the random event notifications and now these new stickers. PLEASE give us an option to turn those off!
Juvenile
by fkstjvzj on 2020/09/22 04:00
Latest upgrade is horrifically juvenile and condescending. I don’t need or want the new bar that indicates my word strength every time I add a letter that happens to create a word and comes with a ridiculous swooping noise every time. I much preferred the old version where I could choose to look at word strength when I wanted to. This may stop me from playing.
Great game, but it’s such a shame...
by TeeTee3Says on 2020/09/22 03:33
It’s a shame the way the mess around with these ads. It’s a shame the way it doesn’t just hurt gameplay. The ads shut off your music player. The game is as great as it’s ever been. The advertisements are worse than every—nearing unbearable.

Frustrated!!
by Icantfindaname_1 on 2020/09/22 01:50
I’ve been playing this game for many years, and until about six months ago, would’ve given it five stars. I paid for the upgrade several years ago, so no ads to deal with. My issue is that using this version, I can only play a game with someone on my “friends” list. What happened to Smart Match? Fast Play? I was so happened when they came out with Fast Play. I hate games that take a month to finish. Because of this, I went back to the older version, which is now telling me to install WWF2. If I am forced to do so, I’ll be saying a sad goodbye to WWF. This game has gone from awesome to frustrating.
You are rated poorly
by Dougnuggett on 2020/09/22 01:12
It would be nice to just play the game without all the garbage you add to my screen. No I definitely do not want you to give me games with anyone or any machine. No I definitely do not want to play any of your inane stupid extra trash or manufactured situations. Stop ruining a good game with your worthless minutia . Just let us play the game with people we select . We don’t need your help or your interference with our games or the friends we chose to play with. Please stop the garbage Thank you.

Not Happy With The iOS 14 changes
by Milehighmom on 2020/09/21 23:06
Historically, I’ve used my iPad Pro for most of my games like this, and I use my Apple Pencil to move tiles around. With the update to iOS 14, for whatever reason, when I try to use my pencil on the board or to move tiles, it “reads” it as a writing pad. I can’t select and move tiles anymore, and it’s terribly frustrating. I have a paid version so the ads aren’t any problem for me, but I’m getting turned off on the game because it’s changed. Oh, I did write to Zynga help and was only told to restart my game. Yeah - I’d already done that several times. I’m just frustrated that even after reaching out for help, nothing changed. I doubt that the makers even play the game like I do, so it’s unimportant to them. OK. I’m through whining. I have a game to play - with my FINGERS! (Lol)
Mostly good

Sometimes the game freezes & I have to uninstall & install again.
Constant Crashes and Ads
by Andrew A on 2020/09/21 21:11
The developers have outdone themselves making this game as irritating and unstable as possible. I have to force quit this advertisement, I mean game, a dozen times a day. Pathetic junk. Update: I followed all troubleshooting steps to no avail. Then I followed their “Contact Support” instructions which naturally just stops when you need support from an actual person...dead end with no response.
Tile colors revert back
by Ogre9999 on 2020/09/21 21:02
When I change tile options, the next time I play they have gone back to a previous color. Very annoying.
Meh

What’s with the unsolicited sex workers
by Daddy Pop365 on 2020/09/21 18:59
I have a competitive spirit and I love a good challenge. From time to time, I’ve gotten request for games from people I don’t know. I have never had a problem with unsolicited request for games until recently. Recently, I’m getting messages from women who send messages like, “ Hi, how are you?” Or “What’s going on (my name)?”. Is it possible to send the WWF administrators an alert regarding these unsolicited messages? So sad...
Fix the ads
by Bbecker68 on 2020/09/21 18:25
I cannot understand why it is so difficult to close an ad after it has finished playing. If we have to watch them because we are playing the free version, at least make them close correctly. I constantly have to close the app and re-open it.
Tired of men getting personal
by DenverDame on 2020/09/21 18:24
I have the same problem as previous writer. A game is started but if you don’t want to share personal information, they quit playing so obviously, this game is not their interest. Also, about every three games or do, my screen freezes and I have to reboot. I think this is WWF fault. How can this be fixed?
Words 2 freezes ip every time I press “play” since last update
by Rob.franks on 2020/09/21 16:47
I love the game but it is very annoying to have to reboot my phone or ipad every time I play Update two months later, still freezes up everytime I click on play
Can’t open games???
by sihnycuws on 2020/09/21 15:57
For the past few weeks I have been unable to open games. The app opens fine, and I can scroll up and down, but when I try to click on a game nothing happens. I do not have a problem with any other apps, so it is not an issue with my phone. I’ve updated the app, closed/reopened the app, and restarted my phone, to no avail. I’ve been playing this game for 10 years, but I guess now I’ll have to move on to something else. (Oh and this is the PAID version I’m talking about - which makes it even more frustrating!)
Great game, but way too many ads
by Louisvillewordsplayer on 2020/09/21 15:44
The ads after every word placement is beyond excessive and ruins the experience. I’d happily pay to purchase the app, but the only option is a monthly subscription for $9.99, which is also excessive. Hoping the creators recognize that everyone on here will leave once something only remotely better comes along.
Lousy thing to do...
by Clieb_1 on 2020/09/21 14:32
I’ve never written a review before, but I’m kind of annoyed. This latest update has taken a nice free feature (Word Strength) and is making it into a paid feature. On top of that, I don’t like the new layout of the feature with sitting at the bottom of the screen now. I get they are a company trying to make money, but this just feels like a really poor move to me. They’ve taken a simple, fun game and tried to monetize every square inch of it.
Disappointed with Quick Play
by SolitaireObsession on 2020/09/21 14:27
I have been using this app for a while and really enjoyed the new “Duel” feature but am increasingly frustrated with the app not responding and counting scores, starting one player and the other just sees the game opening and then joins when the other player is already far ahead. While I can completely understand technical glitches and timings, it has only happened more recently so it must be a usage issue. Deeply disappointing when the game is not credited if the response time, score counts, etc are disrupted. I would be happy to play again but do lose for technical issues and have no option to report it and not receive a new credit for the game is deeply frustrating.
Great game, but bloated with crap
by toad555555 on 2020/09/21 13:37
I enjoy playing the game with friends, but all the various awards and challenges are extremely annoying. It takes forever to load an then you have to wade through pop ups and x them out. The dictionary really stinks - it allows words that would be illegal in Scrabble and doesn’t allow other words that can be found in a dictionary. Moreover for the past year or more my tokens have totaled 1199. All of a sudden a few days ago I only have 1144 and I did not “buy” anything. I’ve tried numerous times over the years to contact support, but have never received a reply.
Constant freezing issues..
by she👀 on 2020/09/21 13:04
The game constantly is freezing. Have asked for help and all they tell you is delete the app and start over. Done that over and over..sick of it😡
Slow app

Words 3
by supercalifragilisyeic on 2020/09/21 07:45
The ads for appts are getting to the point where I ‘m ready to quit playing! Doesn’t AT&T make enough money on regular ads? It’s not fun any more!
Used to be more fun but...
by 2caldwells on 2020/09/21 07:09
I used to enjoy this game more, but through the last 4-5 iterations it freezes after every second or third word played. Support just says the same old things: force quit, restart the phone, hard restart the phone, delete and reinstall the app, yadda, yadda, yadda. I keep hoping the next update will fix it, but no… Also allows too many foreign words that are not commonly used in English, and too many abbreviations.
Tired of it
by 1Bruinlady on 2020/09/21 06:56
I have been playing this game for years and have enjoyed it very much. Ads start playing in the background causing the game to crash. If this continues, I’ll find a better word game to play.

Great game enriching. I hate when girls try picking up on players. As this is not a dating site. But everything else is awesome
Frustrated with the endless feature additions
by gtlar on 2020/09/21 03:28
The new changes to Word strength are terrible. Please add an option under settings to turn off the main screen bar and reenable the manual approach with bars via clicking on the green check. Being pestered with auto fill and messages on how to play the game is patronizing and irritating. Further, I have no need to send an emoji sticker when sending a word. For the last couple of years, I have enjoyed playing for the most part, but in the last few months changes/sub games additions have ramped up so quickly, the game is losing the simple beauty it had.
Stop with the garbage!
by lkjtyf on 2020/09/21 03:16
Just lets play Words! No upgrades, no ambitions charges, no “gifts” that we don’t use anyway and don’t want our fun slowed down with the funky stuff.
Words with Friends

It’s truly my very favorite thing to do, play it everyday with friends & family🤗
Love the game but hate the junk!

Why on earth would you need to play with emojis??? Please figure out a way for someone to turn off that feature.

Crash, freeze, crash, freeze crash. Ugh!
I love playing this game however the chatting feature needs changes.
by naturalmusiclover on 2020/09/21 00:15
Why does WWF2 have to become a meat market for men looking to talk to women? I don’t mind chatting with someone about the game that we’re playing or congratulating someone on a good placement of tiles however I don’t want to accept someone’s chat only to find out they’re trying to make a move on me and not the game. It is clear after a few moves that they are not there to play the game because they are not even trying. When I go to close out that game because it is a waste of time ( because they are not really trying to play) it counts against me which I believe is not fair to me.I would prefer to at least be able to see the message that they send and then decide if I want to respond or chat. Right now I have to decide whether I wanna take the chance that they are chatting about the game. Currently I am not inclined to accept a chat. Are there any women helping to design this program?

by Blah613 on 2020/09/21 00:01
When you’re playing against the computer it a whole other story. Tell me what this word means as the dictionary doesn’t have it listed?? Even when I looked it up it said it’s a Words with friends word???
Ads
by ccpoodle on 2020/09/20 23:02
It is a great game. Takes a little time for the ads to get done.
Ad free?
by $34*@1 on 2020/09/20 21:36
I like the game. The app does have its issues which can be frustrating. But the ads are increasing and are getting political. Is it 9.99/ month to be ad free? Initially it was 9.99 period.

Words with Friends keeps me busy. When The ACORN ad comes onhowever, it freezes Words and there's no way to turn it off except turning off my phone! Words also accepts words that aren't words with meanings which is Ridiculous and unfair.
Word strength indicator useless now
by Bjthadj22 on 2020/09/20 19:29
With the latest update the word strength indicator, helping to maximize points on ever play, is basically worthless. At least in QuickPlay games. Seems to still work OK in traditional games. Why the change in quick play? This is causing me to use the app a LOT less...

If I hear that Uber commercial comes screaming out of my phone again when I have it on silent I am never playing this game again. That is ridiculous
Smile emojis
by sbwkeoqhd j on 2020/09/20 15:57
Please prevent smile emojis from popping up and I’ve also had the same issue with men trying to be my “friend” and get me to talk on another app, I usually am up front about how desperate you must be! Of course it’s my choice to approve the chat request! I have met some pretty cool people through this game! Ads without audio would be great too!
Latest update
by youngish on 2020/09/20 15:35
As a player of many years, PLEASE make it possible to disable all chats. It’s disheartening and exhausting to have to mute one unwanted conversation after another. This was not so much an issue in the early days but now I dread playing.
Too many ads
by Pgmike on 2020/09/20 13:22
I’m fine with a few ads, but this app goes way overboard. And, the pop ups are very difficult to X out of. I’m quitting the app as a result. Not worth it.
Needs improvement
by MotoCross27 on 2020/09/20 12:45
The game board needs to stop zooming in when you place a tile on the board. It’s a simple fix but they won’t do it. You should be able to hold a few tiles in place in the tray while shuffling the remaining tiles. Example, words beginning with J are much more common so hold the J in the first slot in the tray. When you place a tile on the board the remaining tiles in the tray jump around. They should stay the way they were. I have a word spelled out, why does it mess that up? Again a simple fix. They need more man tile styles. Enough with the roses and purples. You should be able to choose your own tile styles to put into the inventory instead of the game doing it for you. The sticker emoji thing is dumb. You should be able to hide it if your never going to use it. Again a simple fix, an easy code change.
Too many ads
by kmhiuef on 2020/09/20 12:34
The ads pops up after every word you play. And it’s the same add over and over “Gardens escape”. It’s extremely annoying. I use to love words with friends but seeing that every single word you play the ad pops up I no longer play.

Locks ups frequently

Fun but
by roxieborder on 2020/09/19 21:40
I love this game and I’ve been playing for years but it locks up almost every move and then I have to close the app. It also give me annoying notifications that I don’t want but if I turn them off then it turns off the notifications for when it’s my turn. This app needs a lot of housekeeping.
Notifications won’t go away
by dawniellerene on 2020/09/19 20:50
Please fix the problem where notifications won’t go away. It’s sooooooo annoying. I have had an inventory notification for weeks that won’t go away.

Too many animations

Game Keeps Freezing

I’m super bummed. I play thus game all the time but recently it started freezing on the ads. I’d have to delete and reinstall the app to correct the issue. Today, it froze after submitting my move. Also I wish there was an option to buy the app as the ads are really annoying. Might have to find. New word game. Sad cause I really liked the new features.
Fun, but.....

Words With Friends 2 game
by CaptainAmerica86 on 2020/07/01 15:56
Great game to play with friends and all that if you’re a word game player type of person and all that... and I love playing the game with my friends and all that...but one game I am having a message popping up saying “Oops! Something went wrong!” And then it takes me back to the main menu where all my other friends are that I play against and everything is normal on the games I play with them...but it’s just one friend that I have been playing with and we’ve been playing against each other on a game on words with friends and all that and I messaged them on Facebook messenger if they’ve been getting the same message as I am getting and they said yes to the something went wrong message and then I asked them if they got the same message on any of their other friends games... and they said “no...just our game” and all that and I would appreciate it if someone could please help me and tell me how to get rid of the “Oops! Something went wrong!” Message on my iPhone and iPad for the words with friends 2 app and all that please. Has anyone else ever encountered with the same problem as I am having here and asking for help on here?
This is a great game but....
by Starcourt Mall on 2020/06/14 13:40
So I only gave this 3 stars because the app has a few problems. Otherwise it’s a pretty good game! I love that you can play games with tons of different people and that there are the solo challenges! But there are a few problems that get in the way. 1) There are ads after EVERY SINGLE TURN YOU TAKE. There is only one exception of this: the solo challenges. 2) sometimes I don’t even get my games when it’s my turn! I’ve had to lose countless games because it never came up that it was my turn! That i found was very annoying, and the only way that I’ve figured out how to find those games is if you log out and then log back in again. And every time you log out, even if it’s just for a second, you get all of these new player notifications, like it didn’t even realize you had been gone for a second. 3) sometimes, it says it’s my turn and then I can’t even play. It won’t let me click on games sometimes, I’ve tried reloading my app several times, and it never worked! And finally 4) the time limit on games. I think personally this is pretty annoying, you have like 10-12 days or something to play your turn, or you lose! I’m not trying to spend every day on this app! I’ve got other things to do, and sometimes I won’t come on the app for a week or more! But overall I do like the concept, but if those few things could get fixed, then I definitely would highly recommend this game. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
I love this game but...
by Nica1980 on 2019/09/17 17:45
I have been playing this game for a few years now but I did take a break because of the overwhelming amount of men trying to pick you up. I play Everyday and sometimes for a couple of hours at a time. I enjoy most of the features and hope it just keeps getting better. I really wanted to give it four stars some things are nerve wracking with this game. The first is that when I go to watch a 30 second video to accumulate coins half the time it doesn’t work and keeps saying that it’s loading for a whole day. Please fix that. I also wish these videos gave at least 5 coins at a time but that’s not a big deal and is just my opinion. The other thing is that I continue to get game requests from men with a fake profiles. As stated in so many other reviews if you don’t chat and go to hangouts or other dating like websites they stop playing. Then that game will take up a game spot for 10+ days unless I resign which then messes up my stats. There has to be a way to work around this. Overall I love this game it’s my favorite of all time. I hope that it keeps improving and look forward to any new features. P.S I played a player a few days ago that had rainbow tiles. I asked her several times how she had the option for that style but she completely ignored me. I’m wondering is that something you would have to buy cause I would LOVE that.
Poorly developed Scrabble
by Unwrittn on 2020/02/12 21:34
I love Scrabble. But the design and execution of this app is just sad. First, it says ‘Words with Friends’, meaning the primary purpose is to play with people you know. But unless they are dedicated to the game, you could wait hours or even days for the other person to take their turn. If you really want to play, but you’re tired of waiting for a friend to check in, you could hit up a complete stranger. I’ve done this a few times only to be quizzed on my personal life, political and religious beliefs, and my love life. Apparently, this game attracts very lonely people who would rather chat than play, and who also think a game app is an appropriate place to find a companion. So again, I gave up on that avenue of play. What’s left? Solo Challenges! A chance to play against the computer at the rate of one game every 8 hours. Lame! And the computer does not stick to English, or a preferred language, or any language at all for that matter. It makes up words! I just played an entire game again “Long Nose Neil” and not a single word he played was a valid English word! Several were not real words and even the computer had no definition for them; others were in other languages (Hebrew, French, and Spanish). And as if that wasn’t annoying enough, it’s not even a real game. You have “5 moves(words)” in which to out-score the computer. I gave it 2 stars for being mildly entertaining, but it’s a far cry from what real Scrabble lovers would expect.
Update freezes
by Babs Toyfish on 2020/09/17 03:08
Update: Zynga seems bent on getting rid of all their adult users. The app gets progressively, aggressively stupider with every update. It’s more geared toward two-year-olds all the time. Maybe I’m being paranoid, but sometimes I suspect that they built that freeze (mentioned below) in on purpose to get you to always update in hopes the new version will fix it, because with every update a new annoying popup feature for children comes along, or you’re now charged for things that used to be free. I normally avoid updates because of things like this, but that freeze has got me trying each new one that comes along. They’re building in new bugs all the time seems. First it was not being able to use voice to text in chat more than once. Then it was not being able to use the cursor in the chat box. It’s like a new bug every time. One would think that a $7 billion company could do better on quality control. And every new feature feels like they’re dumbing the app down to appeal to children because children are easier to bilk money out of. I’m an advanced player who’s been playing this app a lot since 2011. It feels like they’re trying to push people like me out with all of this baby stuff. ———- App now freezes after every play. What’s up zynga? Been playing this game almost a decade now and never had a problem with the app. This makes 2 updates progressively worse than the last.
Bad design and each update brings new problems.
by Tabletha on 2020/09/19 04:27
I received a developer response saying to contact them directly. As stated in this review, I had already contacted directly. They either did not feel they have a problem, or they did not care to share with tech people that this seems to be a glitch within the game. They said to do all the things they usually say. As stated below, they were all already done. Won’t waste more time getting in touch with them, when they do not believe there is ever anything wrong. Once again, Word Wheel does not work. The screen goes solid dark blue, just like right before the profile slides put from the right side. The profile, inventory, achievements etc., when selected, slide out from the right side, overlaying a full dark blue screen. The Word Wheel game just turns into a completely dark blue screen, with no functionality. Have to close the app and reopen it, because it does not even have a way to x it out. Just dead blue screen. Have done two updates and nothing changes. ________________ This time it’s Word Wheel does not work. Try to play and get blank blue screen. I DO have the latest update. I DID delete and reinstall. I DID sign out and in again. I DID contact customer service and they said they refreshed from their end. Two cycles of Word Wheel games and they still will not play. and I do not want another refresh, because that invariably causes something else. Isn’t anyone else having this problem? Please fix.
Ads
by Kat€B on 2019/02/15 13:13
Look, I know you all want us to purchase the ad free version. Sorry, but I don’t play enough to make that happen. So I use the ad version and there is a big problem with this. I often play while waiting in a waiting room or while watching TV with other people. I have my phone on silent. But , some of your ad refuse to be silent! All of a sudden there is a blast of noise from an ad that refuses to shut up! I go into a high anxiety panic trying to silence this ad that I didn’t even want to see! Also, suddenly all the ads are 30 seconds long and you can’t get past them. It gets where we see the same ad over and over and it is frustrating. There are a couple of games that I have seen the ads for about 1,000,000,000 times. I have begun to absolutely hate them. I will never download those games just because I have seen the ads far too much. Okay, done with the rant about the ads. The game itself is good. The badges are a nice touch and they make you want to get more points. The other little games in the game such as collecting things to get a new box is also fun. The dictionary is good and helpful. But, the dictionary often has words that it says it cannot define. Also, some foreign words are accepted but some aren’t. The game itself has done well with no glitches. I have enjoyed it a lot.
Good App, But Uneven Support Outside of English
by Ari_Z12 on 2019/08/23 09:16
This is my favorite Scrabble-type mobile game and is popular with everyone I know for providing a quality experience. One feature I particularly liked was the ability to see the definition and a link to a dictionary entry for most words played when the game is set to English. This feature is something that sets the app apart from playing the traditional board game, and when combined with other gameplay improvements, it definitely makes the app better than the tediousness that sometimes is experienced when playing Scrabble by hand. What keeps this from being 5 stars for me is that not all words when the game is set to English have an associated definition or dictionary entry (will say something like “definition unavailable”), which makes it confusing how the developers chose what words make the cut for being playable. It also takes away from the learning aspect the app provides in being able to expand your vocabulary when an unusual word with no definition is played (e.g. Qi). I play equally in two languages, and the dictionary feature is absent altogether in the second language I play in (Portuguese). I would imagine it probably is only present in English, and would be glad to see it improved and expanded to other languages in the future.
Apple Pencil with iOS14 Update
by Mimidddddvvvvvv123123123 on 2020/09/18 15:47
I always play Words with Friends 2 with my Apple Pencil on my iPad. I use it to scroll through the game and move tiles. However, With the new update to iOS 14, the app will not allow me to use the pencil to grab tiles once I open a game. Instead, now the pencil just scribbles all over the game board and there is no option to turn this off. I don’t need to scribble on a scrabble game board, it’s not a coloring page. It is pointless. So far, all other apps I’ve opened work fine with the pencil. Please fix to still allow the pencil to also be used to play the game by scrolling and grabbing tiles, not just as a drawing tool. Other issues I have is if you use a Word Radar and then leave that board, when you return the game closes the “radar” and then makes you “buy” another radar. They didn’t use to do this and it seems petty. Also, I like that that they allow you to change the game tile within each individual game. However, in one of my games it keeps reverting to this one game tile that I hate. Even though I have changed both my universal default tile and the individual game tile, every time I open the individual game it reverts back to this other tile that I can’t stand. It is annoying. I love WWF but constant little glitches happen enough to where I felt I needed to say something here.
Fun game, but full of scammers

There has to be some way to vet out these scammers who begin unsolicited conversations with women. They are relentless and annoying, and they have the same script. I don’t believe most of them are native English speakers based on their canned conversations and poor game-playing. After I accepted several challenges (I hoped they were due to being ‘smart matched’ with someone), 3 different men all started similar conversations with me ‘hello dear’ or using my name in another one. Then in 2 of them it led almost immediately to ‘where are you from’ and in one straight to ‘so, are you married?’ In one where I didn’t answer his repeated ‘hellos’, he finally said ‘so you don’t chat?’ I answered that and told him hello, but I was leery of chatting due to being asked those questions. He said he understood. Then next question was ‘so, where are you from?’ That’s when I looked up words with friends trolls, and found that this is a thing where ppl have actually been scammed. I don’t know what the answer is except to never say yes to a game or maybe just never open conversations with people I don’t know, but in the past I was able to say ‘good game’ or ‘nice word’ without worrying someone was going to try to solicit money from me. I love the game itself, so this stinks.
Progressively worse
by Caltagm on 2019/10/07 21:22
This game used to be fun. Scrabble is fun. Just by itself. But apparently the geniuses behind WWF2 thought they could make it even better. So they destroyed it. The game is now so crowded with awards and levels and challenges and a ton of crap that it makes playing the game a tedious disaster. There is so much extraneous garbage that it takes 10-20 seconds to load the board every time I switch to the game. I’m not talking about opening it from closed. I’m talking about switching from my email or messaging to the game that is already in progress. Now it even bogs down when I play a word. The whole screen will freeze up for 10-15 seconds before eventually moving on. The game locks up for 15 seconds if my opponent sends me a chat message while I’m playing! And when the game is over and you try to start a new game, you can’t tell if it’s working because there is no response to touching the new game button. So you hit it a couple times and the stupid thing eventually opens four or five new games. It’s frustrating and ridiculous. There should be a way to opt out of all those absurd “gaming” levels and challenges and crap. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It wasn’t and now you’ve broken it. So this time it’s up to you to go make it right. Oh and there should be some way to provide feedback to the developer beyond writing a review.
“Oops something went wrong”
by ;lkkj;lkj on 2020/07/25 13:16
I’ve had this message a couple of times, usually when trying to start a practice game. There is no way get rid of this open game, that you cannot play, that counts as one of your open practice games AND there is no way to contact the developer, outside of writing a review for the game itself, to help get rid of it. The last time this happened, they were responsive and got rid of the game for me. This time, however, not so much. I have had a practice game open, that I cannot play, for 189 days. I play the game every day. And other reviewers are indeed correct - the number of trollers has increased 10 fold over the past year or so. Now before I ever accept a game, I look up their profile to see when they became a member. If they’re new, I decline the game. I got tired of them holding up games for 10 days because I chose not to chat with them. A few are decent and will resign the game right away, but most are not. They will wait until the game resigns itself. I have put my settings so as NOT to be the daily match person, but they still find me. I sure with the developers could do something about this! And, I wish they’d close this practice game that’s been open for 189 days for me!
POINT ACCUMULATION
by CraftyVic on 2018/11/21 04:51
The reason I did’t give it five stars is because of the 1500 coin accumulation limit! I’m as avid and serious player and I feel like I’m being penalized for being a good player. I’m somewhat short on incentive to play harder/more often/longer because I’m maxed out on the coins I can accumulate. I think you should perhaps make up another tier of playing excellence by somehow either allowing serious players to accumulate more than 1500 coins, come up with some sort of incentive for players that repack 1500 coins or make another level of play available to those players that reach 1500 coins. I don’t usually ever buy anything from the store to spend my coins on and I’m sure there are others out there who have also maxed out their coin accumulation. So put on your thinking caps and come up with more incentives to use or accumulated coins on or provide a different level of place for those of us who attain 1500 coins and hold that balance for awhile! Also, right now it doesn’t appear to be working / I keep getting a message that there are no available plays, when they’re clearly ARE plays!! What’s up with that???
Delays and catfish
by StephanieS1227 on 2020/09/07 17:04
I play this game often and I enjoy it, but I have been noticing that when I play the lightning rounds with groups, I get an overwhelming amount of men sending me 1:1 games. I know for certain that some of them are Nigerian catfish masquerading as U.S. servicemen and surgeons who are working for the UN and on assignment overseas. I am extremely resourceful when it comes to investigating and can say without any uncertainty that the men are catfish. If anyone from WWF ops wants to discuss, I would be happy to reveal my sources. Also, when I play QuickPlay, my game lags - majorly. My board will still be loading and the opponent has 50 points before I can even look at my letters. Then, in between words, the board will load and load and by the time it finally does, the game is over and I have lost. Other times, it will say it’s searching for an opponent and I will close out of the game to restart and try again and a game is in progress and I’m about to lose, which wastes a turn. There are a lot of glitches and the catfishing needs to be addressed. For the time being, I have changed my photo to one of my dog to deter weirdos from sending me games. I have still received quite a few and I’m thinking I may need to be a bit of a catfish myself and change my photo to a sumo wrestler and my name to “Butch” or something of the like to play unscathed.
Honestly not the best
by Freaquent user on 2020/03/24 19:58
It has a lot of problems. There are weird challenges that you HAVE to participate in no matter what. Once, I decided to start a practice game and it glitched out so now I have no way of accessing it which means I can’t resign to fix the problem and I can’t make a new practice game either. Another time, I decided to play a game with a random person and for some reason, they added them to my friends list. But I didn’t search for their user name. I used the create game and pressed smart match. This would theoretically be in my game list, and I would have one match with them, and never see them again. There is no way to fix this that I know of. That’s another thing. It is very difficult to navigate the app, and you often can’t remember how to get to a certain place. Things can be glitchy at times, and in general, the app is missing a lot of thing that should be accessible through settings in the app. I’m sorry if this review was hard to read, I wrote it in five minutes and there is probably tons of mistakes. tl;dr Don’t get the app unless you really really need too. It really needs to be worked on. I don’t use the app any more, and don’t want to any time soon. Save your self time, confusion, and possibly anger, by not downloading it.
Step in the WRONG direction
by Picotek on 2017/12/30 04:21
This new version is so ugly. With the previous version I started getting dropped games even after I would make my move. Then read online that the fix was to delete and reinstall the app. Upon looking at for it in the App Store, now it's called Words With Friends 2? First of all, what a stupid name to change it to. But I reinstalled it and now I see my dropped games, but the look, colors, the size of everything is so obnoxious. Whoever redesigned the UI needs to go back to middle school. Actually, that's what it looks like; it looks like an obnoxious elementary crappy textbook with stuff all bright and obnoxiously big. Anyway, wish the developers gave an option to view stuff zoomed out or in a classic mode; where I used to be able to see like 7 games on the screen, now I see like two or maybe three and then have to scroll. Unnecessary. And totally ugly UI. And also, stuff like giving me a super light blue (almost white) background and then putting white text on top of that??? Who thought that would be a good design choice idea, that's terrible layout and design; I could barely read it. But finally when I did read it, it was to say that my app is ad-free. Ad-free or not it looks like crap and it's a step in the WRONG direction. Make things simple-looking and easy to read, not obnoxious and bloated. This update offers ZERO improvement to the enjoyment of the game.
Words 2
by lovingorca on 2019/11/29 13:15
I’m sick of being tricked into playing your AIs when I tap next game. It should be our choice not yours!!!!! Also I’ve noticed that words that I know are words get rejected. I would like to submit screenshots when this happens so you can fix the dictionary. Thank you. Also, why are the same ads repeated over and over again? Plus I’ve noticed small strip ad at bottom of game. What’s up with that? And why can’t I get rid of a Bot challenge? If we are unaware that the next button will start a bot challenge that I didn’t want. Then there’s no way to get rid of it. This is SO Irritating!!! Please fix this game! I get so sick of hitting pass over and over again so many time before the game will give up and start a rematch. IT’S Ridiculous! And irritating! And we can’t even resign from an AI game. We are forced to play with it. OH, AND STOP THE MATHES!!!!! I AM SICK OF OF GETTING YOUR BOTS PLAYERS I DONT HAVE IT CHECK MARKED! Fix it. We’re not able to add pictures, So we can’t show you what’s happening. Your game is also matching us with real players now. I ended up with one that started asking me personal questions. Aka, where are you from, what do you do for a living. You better fix this or I will uninstall it!!!! I’m trying too resign from a word challenge name of Bot, Joan of Ark. When I tap rep resign it put it back in my game. I give up! I’m so sick of your game forcing players I don’t know and bots on me!
The programmers don’t know the English language
by Tfeliot on 2020/08/31 00:00
It is frustrating enough playing this game because of the way they force their little rewards on you and you have to wait for those to process before you can continue playing. But worse than ever, is that I don’t think that these people are using any valid English dictionary to determine what is a word and what is not. I have an English writing degree and I can tell you that there of been multiple times when a word should have been acceptable and was not. These are words that were acceptable in the game of Scrabble, and I suggest the programmers start using Scrabble’s Dictionary or some other valid dictionary I have a feeling this is the result of programmers who have English as a second language. Very frustrating and I am considering quitting for this reason. Since I wrote the preceding words, the developer contacted me and told me that they use the Oxford English Dictionary and that they except 160,000 words. If they indeed used the Oxford English Dictionary, they would know that it has over 600,000 words in it. And they should also know that people who play word games are generally people who have a larger vocabulary than people who think there are only 160,000 words. Their response proved my point.
Great Game with Cool Things!
by RainbowKitty1000000 on 2020/03/31 21:02
This game is so fun because you can play a Scrabble-like game with friends and family. You can friend people, and when you start a game, you don’t like, have to stay on it forever. What I mean is, the other person might be taking a while and you get bored of just sitting and waiting. So, you can go out of the game and do something else while you are waiting. You can even start a different game with another person! So you can be playing TWO or more games at once! Also, while you are in a game, you can chat with your opponent. That can be helpful sometimes. You can also block, mute, or report someone while in chat. Another thing that you can do in a game is search up words in the dictionary that they have. This game also has many fun challenges and other extra things. You’ll figure it out if you get this fun game!So far I have even learned two new words: fete and hoons. This game really can teach you new words and things. I really encourage people to get this fun and awesome Scrabble-like game, and now you can play Scrabble virtually with faraway friends and family!
Fun game but way too many technical glitches!
by dcinsa31 on 2019/02/06 12:51
For the most part this is a fun game to play with your friends to pass he time, take a break, waiting at the doctors office but the adds are horrific; waiting 30-60 on between each move while playing an add is ridiculous; some just stop so you have to get out of the app and back in. If you did opt in the one ONLY time the no adds was offered with original app for 1.99 you are SOL. It should have offered with the real ease of WW2. WW2, although in Beta mode needs to stay there for a while as it still freezes when the host is talking (which by the way they do way toooooo much) and at times you have missed the question all together... so guess what? You’re done. I just do it for fun... not 2.20! People make comments on iG and FB all the time which go unanswered. Example.... 7 Feb 2019 “down for maintenance.” It has yet to be posted on IG but on FB ppl wanna an approximate time for the outage. Common courtesy you give your users an estimated time; even if you over estimate. I gave 3 stars because I don’t have a lot of problems other ppl have. And the weekly goals are INSANE. I just think you can do a better job communicating with your users. The only communication I’ve seen is for positive feedback. Thanks
Words with Friends
by terrrifffica on 2020/05/14 00:18
I love to play this game to relax; however, this game frustrate me instead. The achievement system is not reliable. I finished level 20 and should have to 21. In my profile still shows me as level 20. I am now working to earn level 22. It’s very frustrating when one works hard to achieve a level and your system takes away. In different device it’s shows correct level 21, but in this device I am using it shows level 20. I delete the app and reloaded the app and is still showing my image with a 20. Also, there are too many words that are allowed which aren’t really words. When I look for definition there is none. This game allows foreign language words when I am playing in English. I understand that there are some foreign words that have been adopted and integrated into English language and are acceptable to use, but the words I see are definable not in common use. I wish the developers would take the time to read the reviews. I read a few and they all have the same issues in common. Please read the reviews! You ask for a rating, but you don’t read the reviews. This a great game to play, but you need to fix all the glitches. We are all telling you the problems. Listen to us .
I love this game, but......
by Cindy FL on 2019/10/22 00:41
Great game, honestly, it's a great game. I love it and definitely think it was worth the upgraded ad free version. However, I have to caution people against ANY of the in-game purchases. My husband and I both have it. Guess what. He can buy power-ups for SUBSTANTIALLY fewer coins than I can buy them for. He can play the Solo games early for SUBSTANTIALLY fewer coins than I can. And when I ask support WHY? All they can say is that they occasionally try to see what works best. Well, there's no "occasionally" about it. His coins have ALWAYS bought more than my coins will buy. So...though this is a terrific game, be aware that they pick and choose which players get more "bang for their buck" as far as coins are concerned. I feel somewhat manipulated, and will NEVER actually purchase any coins. I will slowly accumulate them in the game, and purchase power-ups slower than my husband because the folks who run the games can pick and choose those who have more "buying" power. Though it's a great game, the inequality they manufacture is kinda frustrating. I do need to add, their tech support has always been helpful. That's an important part of these online games, and they do well with that.
Scammers
by Lapcat4 on 2020/07/13 22:32
I love the App but I found there are men trying to pick up women and more likely scam them for money. But last week I had a new type of scammer. It was a lady who said she just moved and wanted to make new friends. I decided to chat with her and she asked if we could chat on Google Hangouts. I am not connected to that form of social media so I told her I was on Instagram. It just got weirder and weirder. She said she knew Ellen and if I would like to appear on her show. I asked a few more questions to see where she was going with this and she actually had pictures of her with Ellen. She said she could raise 5000 for my transportation. I said I wasn’t traveling now because of the virus. The next day she asked for my SS number, Address, Email, and phone number. She was persistent and her flow of conversation would change calling me Miss and friend etc. I told her I don’t give out my SS number and blocked her on Instagram and WWF. I would have never thought this type of scam would happen on WWF so just a word of warning. I told her and the men who have appeared that I am 75 years old so that would turn some of them off! I now hope that my age would give me some wisdom.
Women Beware!!
by Capricorn011169 on 2020/01/29 04:30
Love this game been playing 9 years. In the past year there have been a buttload of foreign men starting games with me then ask to know me “more better” how’s my husband & kids? Where am I playing from? What do I do for a living? How old am I? Etc. I accept game & will answer not trying to be rude to anyone but answer in short half truths hoping they get the hint I don’t want to talk to them & I’m a single lesbian not looking for a man. Obvious by the way they talk they are not from USA but say they are or if called out they say born not in USA but currently live in USA but are working overseas and their wife usually died in car accident or cancer or they are divorced and always have at least 1 kid. I am honest with them I’m lesbian & not looking for a relationship of any kind but then they ask if I have hangouts so I made up an account with email just for that app. Once on hangouts some have said how much they love me & looking for a mom for their kid or ask for money, iTunes or google play cards or ask for my phone provider account so they can “pay with their own money” to get a phone. All I can say is WOW this is ridiculous! I report them on WWF as soon as they ask if I have hangouts.
Complaint/Review
by Snoopy4969 on 2020/04/21 04:30
I loved WWF2 prior to the most recent changes. It appears the personal part of it is being removed. I enjoyed competing against my friends I’ve been playing with and now the competition level isn’t there....what fun is it with numbers against people you don’t even know. The sport for me is gone. Also, I cannot find people I played with before without searching and searching. It is becoming as if, making it better is making it worse. Also, to play a game pretty much daily throughout the day/night and get a few tokens that don’t even allow you to have a free turn is ridiculously cheap to me and not worthy of the effort put forth. Make it worth while. I’ve been playing Scrabble for a short period of time and the rewards make it a lot of fun and makes you want to play more for those rewards. Also, for people to start a game with you just to “chat” and when you don’t or not the way they want you have to have them drag your numbers down and hold that game hostage until it expires almost two weeks later is a bit long and ahold be addressed to allow the person that declines not be punished by “losing” that game.
Beware the Scammers in Chat
by Mrs.Box on 2019/12/27 03:37
Like another reviewer stated, the chat feature is annoying with random people wanting to engage in chat. They ask lots of personal questions. My experiences have revealed that most of the men who initiate chat are scammers. One in particular uses multiple profile names, but the same profile picture. Another one I had the misfortune of trusting, became very hostile and agitated when I finally figured out he was a scammer. He actually said he loved me and wanted me to be the mother of his son. And yet another one wanted me to travel to the UK to meet him. Some red flags to look for is, they have a new account, have only been playing WWF for a short period. They create new aliases and new accounts. They always want to know what you do for a living and they almost always claim to be a widower. Often times too, they have very high scores/standings because they cheat. (There are apps people use to cheat). So I no longer chat with these guys whose profiles seem suspicious to me. But as for the game .... I love playing Words and I have discovered new friends and reconnected with old friends playing Words.
Wordy review
by 219 User on 2017/11/25 15:23
I really like this game. 5+ stars for sure and more like 10 stars. The continual improvements are great and positive and have never have gone into the negative. The new game wwf's.2 has got a lot of visual improvements and I like the "new" sounds. Personally I don't like how the game repeats by showing me what the other games are or new things etc. My suggestion for that would be to put all that on the settings page. Then a person can go there to discover what's new or how many badges they have etc. rather than all that interfacing when one first starts the app. but that's just a suggestion coming from me. Other players may be totally fine with the way it is which is still pretty awesome. I couldn't at this point ever give this app/game a negative review. It's just too well designed and plays well. Thank you for the many hours of pleasure and like another reviewer said, this game really helps to learn words. I have sent in a few word suggestions that didn't get added. Not sure why but I thought I'd bring that to the developers attention. Once again, thank you very much for an outstanding app.
Love the game, hate the players
by Bambifaline on 2019/02/05 05:51
This game is great, and I’ve made friends with some super cool people who I’ve enjoyed chatting with and playing against. I love our in game chats and our competitive banter, that being said; a lot of my games are wasted on scammers or dudes who are only playing to meet dates. A player is only allowed so many games playing at any given time, and it’s REALLY frustrating to have a score of 305 to 70 against a scammer or date seeking dude who ends the game when they realize you aren’t going to chat with them on hangouts. That brings me to my point; when you DO try to report an offender who is clearly scamming, just playing to get a date, is being mean or vulgar, or who has stolen another persons identity (I’ve seen the same profile pic in 3 games at the same time) etc, it’s slow to report and buggy to the point where you can’t report the offender at all. At the very least put out a disclaimer so the nice ladies of this game don’t get scammed. This game is becoming the next Nigerian prince scam for grandmas and that’s really not cool and shame on y’all for not doing something about it.
A good game gone bad
by Robgonzo on 2018/07/12 22:12
Words with Friends is a fun game. I’ve had various versions of it since it first came out. It has a fun easy interface to use and is very intuitive. I have a lot of friends that I play with and often have at least half a dozen games going at once. The stats and rankings and records of games is cool too. My biggest complaint and the reason I rate it low is all the gewgaws, side games and challenges. I find them very annoying and distracting. They pop up after every move, telling you you’ve earned coins and challenges and seeds. It’s a pain to even open the app sometimes because you’re hit with them right away. Plus, I can’t prove it but it seems like, if you’re on a streak you start getting really bad letters. I’ve taken multiple screenshots where I’ve had nothing but sets of 2 or 3 vowels. It feels like the are pushing you to use one of the various power ups because that only started happening to me when I got the latest version of the game. Like I said I’ve been playing this game since 2010. If there were a way to turn off all the challenges and events and mystery box crap this app would get a much higher rating from me. As it is now, I only remain because I like to play and its very popular with my friends. It’s like facebook that way.
Only fix what is broken
by Beeber22 on 2018/03/14 10:18
Likes: I really enjoy the game and concept. I like that there are more rewards earned, but find them to be traded at a premium - I realize you want to make a profit, but you could definitely humor frequent players with a better value. Issues: My issues are with the screen design; namely the letter tray at the base of the screen often causes the screen of my iPad to go up with the swiping motion made from moving tiles to the board from the base of the screen. Despite trying not to, it happens repeatedly. The tray is nice at the bottom, but doesn’t work well with Apple’s swiping feature. Secondly, depending on whether you press on the face of the friend or on the line where the game information is recorded, determines whether you start a new game or continue play in the current game. This game option/feature is not ideally executed. I am indifferent to the visual effects of the new game design. Most people aren’t fired up about change, so gamers are skeptical when developers attempt to fix and improve on something not broken. It is generally considered a fail if after adjusting to the updated game or new version, players prefer the prior one. Moral of the story: only fix what is broken. 😊
Ads trap you, getting worse.
by Python_in_PJs on 2020/01/07 20:27
First off, I really enjoy the game. I’ve even been thinking about buying some coins so I can get more power ups, but the price is just a bit too much for pretend coins in a silly game. I’d probably be willing to pay about 1/5 what they charge for coins, and I’d be a repeat customer too, but it’s not quite worth it for what they’re charging currently. As for there being ads, don’t mind them, and I don’t think there are too many (it’s just 1 ad per turn, and it’s the cost of playing for free, right?). But increasingly they’ve been placing ads that have no discernible way to exit (the X is invisible or something), so when you try to get out, it magically redirects you to the App Store or some website you didn’t want to go to. I’m not talking about exiting early. I’m talking about after the ad has played, I want to be able to exit back to the game. Now they’ve got an ad that shifts the screen sideways and has no way to exit. Again, I have no problem with there being ads, and I’ve even bought things from ads on this app, but I’ll never buy something from an ad that traps me then redirects me to somewhere I don’t want to go. They should require advertisers to have a clearly visible way of exiting the ad at the end. It’s frustrating. If this is fixed my rating would go to 4 or 5 stars.
Why so buggy???
by newbhikku on 2020/03/01 22:08
This game used to be relaxing and fun to take my mind off things for awhile and then they kept tinkering and tinkering and tinkering with it - adding “levels” and “lightning play” all of which would be great if not so infuriatingly buggy. I would go on with the dozens of ways that bugs make it unplayable but these are already on dozens of forums and Facebook. As someone in IT who develops apps (yup it’s true) I can’t understand how these developers ignore the bugs. The one which finally prompted me to write this review instead of deleting the app for a week or so which is what I normally do is the levels bug that they claim is not a bug. This is one in which myself and some other very good players I know are stuck at lower levels than some very, frankly, stupid friends. You know the ones, the ones who always leave open triple word scores, never take advantage of high point letters to make high scores, whose idea of a good word is something like “broom”. How they suddenly woke up one day and got to level 20 and up while we who are killing it all the time are at levels 10-12 is mind numbing. My 75 year old grandma got to level 20 and said she has no idea what that means. Grrrrr. Anyway, done ranting. I’ll give two stars since i obviously still play for now.
Uninstalling...
by JordanZr on 2018/08/18 13:37
The amount of notifications this app produces is maddening. I don’t need 3-4 notifications a day about some in-game event. I’ve turned off all the notification settings in the game and it’s still happening. I’ve had to go into the global settings/notifications and only left ‘badge app icon’ turned on. This app would turn the screen on for my phone multiple times a day to show me a useless banner notification. I don’t care about your Eggstravaganza event and wouldn’t play it out of spite alone at this point. Not to mention the infuriatingly long tutorial based ad for final fantasy that happens EVERY time you complete a move. This is the only ad I’ve ever gotten. It’s faster to force quite the app and relaunch than work your way through the ad. The notifications even after all of my efforts to restrict them to something manageable are just too much. I’m finishing my current games and uninstalling. Edit: I received a developer response. Pity they couldn’t be bothered to read the third sentence of my review where I already went and turned off all the in game notifications. The problem is those settings didn’t stop the notifications I wanted to have stopped. Sending me a link to an FAQ to do something I already did isn’t helpful.
LONELY HEARTS CLUB WWF?
by Midgettwife on 2020/03/12 12:35
This game used to be fun. This game used to be just about playing with friends, and maybe I’d get the occasional request from a stranger, and that would be okay also. The ads and game rewards have always been annoying and that hasn’t gotten any better, but that has taken a back seat to the dating site that this game has seemed to become overnight. It’s seriously ruining the whole experience for me. At first I would accept the chat only to be grilled about everything from my marital status to my religion. I appreciate the mute button but it’s not enough. There has to be some way to set some sort of privacy settings so these men can’t bother women who don’t want to be bothered to begin with. It’s become really creepy. Can we maybe accept them as friends first before ruining our stats and innundating our games with lonely men looking to hook up, who then abandon the game when you ignore them? If it weren’t for the real friends I play with and the good games I have with other women, I frankly would ditch this all together. This game gives me the creeps every time I sign in. These pathetic men have sucked the fun right out of the game, and so have you, for allowing this to continue, despite all the complaints. Shame on WFF for ruining a perfectly good game.
Words With Friends 2
by Dorajane76 on 2018/06/21 23:51
An outgrowth of Scrabble, this game is developing through time. Updates keep changing it, sometimes for the better, sometimes I wish they would have left a feature the way it was. Whereas Scrabble didn’t allow a dictionary on the premises and I never learned a new word, Words has its own dictionary. When you or your friend enter a word it’s meaning is given along with an oral pronunciation. This gives you an opportunity to learn vocabulary. The dictionary is in a development process, so sometimes an entry hasn’t reached its ultimate perfection. All improvements take time. A feature that I would have liked to keep was the return of letters to their original placement. If I was developing a word and it needed more tweaking to make it fit I could touch return and it came back to the bottom just as it was. An update lost that feature. Now the word comes back scrambled so that I have to take time to redo it. Much care is put into the development and execution of this game. I recommend it for anyone who wants to keep on learning in an enjoyable way.
New update is lame
by mommamiax2 on 2018/09/22 16:25
I have been a WWF fanatic for several years. I loved the game. When the WWF2 app came out, I downloaded it and hated everything about it. The it looks like the Scrabble app (which I have never liked). The coins option is stupid, there is nothing worthwhile to purchase with them. I deleted it within a day or two, but the old app kept trying to force the new app on me! I opened my game this week only to find that it has been changed into WWF2. I hate it. It pushes playing one on one with the game, it’s play back is ridiculous, not even slightly a challenge. It forced the one on one on me so many times, I played it in the hopes that it will stop forcing it on me. The new graphics are confusing, too much garbage on the screen. I just want to play scrabble with my friends. I don’t need flashy garbage. I can’t find my games half the time. When I won a game, I chose the option to play them again at the end of the game. I started the new challenge, and it tried to force me to start another one again with the same person. Not sure how much longer I will be playing this app anymore. You’ve ruined it. No longer about challenging your mind and your friends and now is all about flashy graphics, stupid ads, and worthless coins that buy you nothing of value. Epic failure on Zynga. Give us back the OG WWF!!!!
Addictive and educational.

Besides the fact that there’s an ad for every word you play and you have to pay $9.99 for every 30 days of no ads, this game is addictive and I’m really learning....like a LOT. So much so, its not even about winning for me. I accept matches with people who have been playing 10x as long as me, who I know will beat me, just to watch them and see how they play and learn from them AND learn new words. I’m obsessed with the lightning round as well. This game is amazing. I played the old version a few years ago and obviously it didn’t impact me because I never re-downloaded it. This new version is quite a renovation. I love it! There are some glitches. Like sometimes the ’x’ that allows you to exit out of the ad doesn’t show up and I have to close and re-open the app. A lot of the ads have fake a ’x’, too. If you don’t catch it, it tricks you into clicking the ad and opens a new window. Thats annoying and deceptive. I really wish there was a one-time fee to remove ads. I really don’t want to pay $9.99 for a 30 day ad-free ”bundle.” Sounds like a subscription to me but it’s advertised as a ”bundle.” Every rose has its thorn. :D
Great game! Horrible ads!!!!!!!
by MrHOpus on 2018/01/20 01:51
The game is great. But there should be an option to pay for ad free. The old version had this. We loved that version and resisted moving to the new game for that very reason. Had I not been forced to upgrade to a newer phone that will not run the old version, I would still be very happy with that one. However, since being forced to use the newer version, I have found it to be an enjoyable improvement. I love the sounds and some of the options like hindsight, but they are not worth the insufferable, loud apps that auto play after the game sometimes. I don’t even mind the ads that promote other possible games I might like. But the video ads are the worst thing. I can’t mute my phone quickly enough, and the is no mute option. It is annoying enough that I will just quit playing at all during the hours that those ads show up. Plus, some of them have a “skip” option that just doesn’t work. I guess if you make the skip button small enough it gets folks to accidentally click through to whatever that is it keeps taking me to and they somehow profit from errant clicks even though I immediately dismiss that other page and go right back to the game. A good move would be to offer the “pay to play ad free” option, or at the very least eliminate the video ads.
I have a suggestion!🌟🌟💫
by 5 stars for Word Cookies!❤️ on 2017/11/16 22:26
If this suggestion is bad, please don’t give me hate. Anyway, I had a dream a few nights ago, where on Words With Friends, you could create a game, and there would be a chance of you getting a board with a special spot on the board to put a letter on. On that spot you can only put an N. Now, you can put other letters on it, but it wouldn’t count for the bonus. Right under that special N spot is a regular spot, and then under that spot is another spacial N spot. To get the full bonus, you put another N on the second N spot. Now, this seems hard. What would the special bonus be? Is it worth it? The special bonus is: each N spot counts for 1 quadruple word score. You only get the score if there is an N in that spot. If an N is on both spots, your word is x8. And that’s not all, once you play the word you will get free 5 Swap+’s. I will let Words With Friends choose where they want to put these spots, if this is a good idea. P.S. Sorry if my review name is 5 stars for Word Cookies, I used it for another review and it won’t let me change it.
Words with Friends
by Joanie Honey on 2020/04/26 17:29
I love to play, but I have some complaints. You have made the weekly challenge too difficult and it’s not worth it. It was nice when it was 7000 or so, but raising it to over 13,000 is over the top. After achieving this goal several times, the rewards are pathetic compared to other events. I no longer care about getting there. When are you going to finish this new dictionary that you have been updating? for years??? You allow words that I can’t find in any other dictionary and ignore words that are real. Why Is Texas allowed but no other state. Why is some obscure town or river in some faraway country ok, but not all rivers in the U.S. or other modern countries. Everybody calls raccoons, coons, except you, as an example of my frustration. Why are French words and other foreign words acceptable, but most Spanish words are not accepted? You started awarding me magnifying glasses a few months ago with no icon to use them. Magically they appeared on my games 2 days ago. I have 99+ that I could have been using. I love the word challenge and the monthly challenge. Also I like the flash challenges.
Game is screwed up on my ipad
by Selvish on 2020/02/18 19:25
Every time I go to play on my ipad, the game is not formatted correctly. I go to hit the drop down for rewards and it drops and goes right back up, so I can’t click anything in it. So I uninstall, then reinstall and it works. Next time I go to play, in the same day, it’s not formatted correctly again! I have to uninstall/reinstall like EVERY TIME I PLAY! My iPad is current and up to date. I am connected to wifi. I try to send them a note to explain, even have screen shots of the weirdness, but in the messaging part in the help section, it WONT LET ME ATTACH MY PICS! Then they make all these suggestions which I have done already, and ask me to send pics, and I literally just told them it won’t let me. I do, in fact, know how to attach pics, and when I say it won’t let me, it won’t let me! I’m not an idiot! (Well, maybe I am, because I keep playing and it’s so friggin frustrating!). Works fine on my iphone, but not iPad. ALSO, I never get the “pop-up” events on my iPad. They are only available on iphone. Same with the new purple coins where if you click it, it suggests where to play and highlights the letters to use to make the word. Those NEVER SHOW UP ON MY IPAD, but are there and available to use on my iphone. WHAT THE FRICK IS GOING ON? BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TO WWF2
New version limits extras
by snowlake14 on 2017/11/21 00:59
While there are some good things about the new version of the game, I’ve noticed after a couple weeks of using it that it’s much harder to get coins, which can then be used to use additional features like hindsight, etc. In the old version of the game the daily bonus was 15 coins, which allowed for at least one “extra” feature to be purchased. The new daily gift is usually only 2 coins—not even enough to buy one hindsight. So since this new version has been released I’ve noticed I have way fewer opportunities to use the extra features like hindsight, which I miss. While I do play this game pretty much daily, I often don’t play enough in a week to complete the challenge, which provides 100 coin bonus. Also, the new solo challenge is fun, but once you complete the challenge you can no longer play until the next solo challenge is released, which I hope is changed. Why not let the player rematch with the computer challengers even after they’ve beaten them once? But in general the game is really fun and I’m glad the developers are working to improve it all the time.

by marksd51 on 2018/01/02 02:15
I have to login and logout all the time in order to get messages between people that I play with on the game. It tends to freeze a lot. It’s not a very smooth game or well-developed app. It’s getting really annoying to have to login logout login just to get messages because someone is playing on a different device a kindle to be exact. Stop with the fancy upgrades and make it more simple basic I love playing this game and keeping in contact with friends but you can’t message them if they’re on a different device it’s really annoying and I do agree that they won’t respond of this. Come on developers you’re smart people right figure this out dumb down the game make it simple get your graphics better get the color of the game better so you can actually see what you’re doing. How come every time I have to login I have to go through and delete the games I’ve already deleted that’s annoying once I deleted them they should stay off the game it’s annoying fix it I know you told me in the past it’s all on your servers will get it figured out so I don’t have to keep going through a whole process just to play one game. Now I can’t login it won’t connect to the server one thing after the other this for real I just want to play words with friends with my friends
Love playing it, but not looking at it
by Levans8371 on 2017/12/09 06:19
I do very much enjoy the game. Not only is it a fun way to learn, keep your mind active and challenge yourself, it also helps you stay in touch with friends and family. I may go a week or two not communicating with others if left to initiate conversations on my own. But, I definitely don’t skip taking my turn every day and sending off a quick message using the in game chat feature. Thank you for providing that option. Personal preference, but I do not like the new version, WWF2. The colors, graphics, etc., feel more like a kids game than a game for intelligent adults. I don’t give a rip about some strangers high score or what the popular words are. Put these somewhere else if you must have them. I prefer that space to be used for in game stats like words played and definitions. These two areas should take up the entire column. If you feel you must keep other stats then make them relevant to me. Show high scores for my friends so I can congratulate them, or track the highest scoring word for the current game rather than saving it until the end.
I lost my account and what’s up with theses scammers??
by JJake87 on 2018/12/12 18:58
What’s going on with WWF? I lost all my games and my account too. I had to start over and I’ve been playing some people for years and years. Luckily i was able to find a few and I now have a whole new list of people to play. NOW...here’s my problem every day I’m getting 3 sometimes 4 players that are the”scammers”. They all have the same story. Work for Exxon Mobil, are widowers or divorced wit a child that’s in boarding school and are quite insistent that i download “hangouts”. I’ve said no and they still try. I’ve been taking screenshots of them seeing as there are quite a few. I even played their game and tried to scam the scammer. Today i decided not to let them go on so i said “Let me guess, you work in the oil field, you’re a widower, you have a child and would like to get to know me better on hangouts. Ive actually seen your pic on a forum all about you scammers” And just like that he disappeared. But guess what? I have another trying now. They’re relentless.
The game is okay but...
by AMechelle24 on 2018/07/16 21:37
The game is fun to play and keeps me busy but a few things need to be changed. I think that you should give people two minutes to play back in a game. Some people take longer that 2 days to play back and it gets aggravating because if you are playing a game like Scrabble which is similar to Words With Friends you should play as if you are playing it with an actual board right next to you. So if you were playing the game in real life you wouldn’t take longer than 2 days to play. Another thing that needs to change about the game is the fact that you can’t unfriend somebody because sometimes i start games with people i don’t know and think that i’m about to play a good game but if i play with someone i expect them to play back and forth with me, not come back five days later with a 55 point word and also some people always stay number one in the standings without giving anyone else a chance to be #1, not even for a day. By the way, i am specifically talking about: Owensbigrob44 and Annie🎶 Overall, the game is fun and keeps be busy and also teaches me some new words. Great game, but some things need to change.
Great game
by LarryLuv21 on 2020/01/22 07:42
I dislike the chat app!!! For some people this is a dating site. It is not. I do see you put up a mute option but I agree with the first review from “anthy “ as bd we are not trying to be rude but I just want to play the game not hook up with complete strangers . The ads are ridiculous. Too many. I first started this game in 2012 with no ads. Now we pay to get rid of ads for just 30 days or watch the same ads over and over every turn. I had become so disgusted with the chatting I put everybody I play on “mute conversation “ because the predators are real!! Just remove the chat option. Not needed. Honestly take a vote on the game and I can guarantee the true players want it gone like me! There is Snapchat or tinder for those purposes. I see you say you have new game events? My version of words which is words 2 does not get these options of a new game wheel, new challenges? My computer is upgraded but not this game. Unless I need a new version? Please consider these option words people so we can play a game instead of watching ads or blocking people etc.... just a thought!
Excessive Ads
by SuprKity2DRescue on 2018/01/15 07:33
Every SINGLE play you do you get an ad right after without fail. I have an iPhone 8 and often times the ad will freeze my game forcing me to force close or mess up the screen, forcing me to force close as well. I don’t have this issue with any other app on my phone, even with games way bigger. I get they want to make money and it’s free, but the ads are SO annoying. You are bombarded with apps constantly and honestly I never do this, but I’d be willing to pay a $1 just to remove them. Aside from that it’s easy to use and easy to play without making in app purchases. Get rid of the excessive ads or allow us a way to remove them altogether and it’s a 5 Star game. As of right now though I’m debating on just deleting it because the ads are frustrating and often mess up what could be a quick game. This might as well be called Ads with Friends 2 because you’re going to spend 95% of the time watching them, failing at closing them, or having to reload the game. The in app transactions offer an unfair advantage to people with $$ and the AI clearly always have better letters than you to encourage spending, I can ignore all of that if you just take out your ridiculous amount of ads. Somebody must be in crippling debt in that company or something.
Sad changes
by JesusLovesUs:) on 2018/11/13 18:32
After playing for over 2 years I have deleted my app. I wish there were more incoming challengers to keep me interested but the real reason I got fed up was the solo challenges. My bs meter went through the roof. As you play a set list of bots, you literally have to wait approximately 24hours between matches. The challenge is only available for a set number of days and even if I was very on top of the app I would still be placed into the occasional impossible match. While I would breeze through almost every bot, periodically the game would decide to give me impossible letters. If I found the top scoring word on every play I would still lose. My power ups wouldn’t help. It was a pre-determined loss. There were also pre-determined wins of course, but the losses were so frustrating. After losing you either have to wait another day or pay to play again. Why don’t we just keep the games/words/letters random? I hate feeling like I’m being controlled and manipulated by the apps algorithm. Too much bs. I cannot prove it but I am pretty certain some of these same “good letter vs bad letter” draws played into the player matches as well. Good luck and have fun if you download anyway. Not for me.
