Problems
by m7):m on 2020/08/03 22:54
Love the game. Don’t love all the ads. Just switched to new iPad and ap will not open past the screen saver. Addition: did get a response and one of their solutions worked.
Ads are ruining the game
by Linc3266 on 2020/08/03 22:01
Good game, fun to play, but the ads are taking the fun out of the game. Some of the ads won’t even let you exit when the exit button shows up. Instead they take you to the App Store to download whatever was being advertised. Also they are giving rewards, like we’re children that need gold stars, or special recognition. I am getting more and more disgusted with these problems
Something is wrong
by xenchu2 on 2020/08/03 21:51
I am new to this game but so far so good. However the software will not let me into the game. I can only get to the opening page and cannot go farther.
Terrible glitches
by OmaSumshine on 2020/08/03 21:47
This app freezes up every couple of days to the point that I have to delete and reinstall regularly. I have reached out to the company and have not gotten any responses.
New update freezes
by julsb1958 on 2020/08/03 21:39
The new update freezes before I can submit the word. I have to do a force close and reopen the app. Please fix it.

by rudolph renda on 2020/08/03 21:27
Great game I enjoy immensely. But my game with a couple of individua constantly freezes and I have to shut off my phone and reboot to play. I also deleted the ap and re registered but the problem persists.
Routinely Freezes
by Foldsjr on 2020/08/03 21:10
Great game. I can put up with the ads. After all, I didn’t join the site. My only gripe is how often the site freezes, especially during an ad for one of their other games.
I hate Quick Play!!!
by F....a on 2020/08/03 21:03
As much as I enjoy this game,I equally dislike Quick Play. It’s take your life lines even when the app is searching for an opponent. 😠 the board freezes and gives the opponent free range to play and win. I have checked my internet connection and all of my bars are on so it’s not the internet. Please allow players the option to cancel a Quick Play, if an opponent isn’t selected. And have the board disable for both players when it freezes. Please!!! Please fix!!! Other than that I enjoy the app very much.

Viruses !!!
by Emeraldjoy on 2020/08/03 20:09
(2) I’m adding a little more since I wrote before about their advertisements were getting like viruses. Now I truly believe that they are viruses. When the advertisement comes on, as soon as you finish your move, it will not go away. If you try to wait and X it out when it’s done, it will start playing the ad again, and if you try to X it out again it takes you to the App Store and when you try to leave the App Store, it will take you back to the game again and start playing it all over again. I hate those kinds of ads. I don’t mind watching a short ad, then X out when done, but this is ridiculous 😩! (1 ) I use to love to play this game, but they have so many advertisement interruptions, and most of the time you can’t get rid of them because they come on and will not go away. So I wonder if they monitor the advertisements in at all. I don’t mind the advertisements usually, because usually they do their thing and go away. But more and more they’re not going away, they’re just staying and want let you get out of them. To me that signifies a virus!! I’m leaving if it doesn’t stop. I sure can’t afford a virus.
The programmers don’t know the English language
by Tfeliot on 2020/08/03 19:30
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.
Still no fast play
by Hycghhn on 2020/08/03 19:21
Was hoping they would bring fast play back with this update 🙄Also, please stop with the bots. WWF getting worse now it will not open! Oh well guess it’s time to move on. Does not notify you when it’s your turn!! Still no new update 8-3-2020 please update soon why does it make you claim rewards automatically for the solo challenge
Could be fun
by makearealgamewithnoadds on 2020/08/03 17:53
There are way to many adds and it makes it very frustrating, can’t even enjoy the game without a video add after every turn. I would keep this app and download more if it weren’t for the adds. Deleting this crap.
No more fast game?
by WWF no bueno on 2020/08/03 17:23
I couldn’t give Zero stars or I would. Bring back the option for fast play games!
Too many ads
by Grand R on 2020/08/03 17:18
Ads are too long and wastes time.
Specifically on Quick Play
by Joyous on 2020/08/03 16:32
I really like the Quick Play feature, but it’s glitchy and they are weirdly stingy with play opportunities. (Sometimes I’ll start and match and my opponent will already have 50 points. Other times it will say there was a “problem” and I can’t play, but it will still take my ticket, preventing me from playing for another 2 hours.) If I can’t rely on my earned stars or tickets equating into more play (which I don’t see why the app wants to restrict anyway, except in hopes I’ll eventually purchase things: I won’t), then why should I try? Anyway, the app is fun, but lots of glitches and stingy-ness with play opportunities is obnoxious. (Another glitch: I also have a practice round that my daughter started frozen on my list of games for 79 days now.)
Really Fun
by Veronica Jobbs on 2020/08/03 16:17
It is a great game, if like scrabble then you love this game. My mom plays it non-stop, but I love it too
Good enough fun
by afoxinbox on 2020/08/03 16:13
Too bad about all the questionable folks trying to get people to give personal info. Since it has become such a pervasive problem, I’m switching from blocking them to reporting them.
Why the Ads
by from above 1979 on 2020/08/03 13:59
I paid for the app in order to remove the ads. Worked for about a month and now I’m getting ads again. Fix this please.
Too Many "rewards" and "promos"
by Runin4lyf on 2020/08/03 13:58
I'm fine with ads because it's a free game, but you can't even open the app without being bombarded by a bunch of daily rewards, weekly/daily goals, coin rewards, etc. Even after you finish a turn and skip the ad, you still have to dodge at least 3 screens with useless rewards that I couldn't care less about. Additionally, they have started making notifications for rewards and special promos, and I can't turn off notifications because then i'll miss when someone makes a move. I understand why they are there, but I have been playing for years and have never once checked a reward or tried for a goal. Please make it an option to turn these off. I just want to play the occasional game with an old friend or relative without being inundated by useless notifications.
Mess since update
by Katsgames on 2020/08/03 13:51
I did the update yesterday and now it keeps freezing when I try playing. Then it worked some, but now freezing again.
Freezing
by Alanna35 on 2020/08/03 12:25
The app started freezing about 2 weeks ago after I play a word. I have to turn my phone off and back on or wait until another player plays, click on the player from phones home notification screen to call play again. It’s very frustrating.
Stop Changing Things!
by mrsmnc on 2020/08/03 12:22
I’ve been playing WWF for 11 years and love it, but lately the game has been cheaping out. The new quick play option is fun but you get fewer opportunities to reload tickets with out using coins to “buy” them. The coin rewards are lower now so it takes much longer to win coins, clearly trying to get people to buy them. Also, the privacy settings seem looser and random people pop up for games right on my games tab so I’ve accidentally started several games with strangers by mistake which s annoying because so many people seem to think they’re on Tinder instead of WWF. Still a favorite game but needs t revert to about a month ago...
App freezes after each play
by misu2002 on 2020/08/03 04:36
I have been playing this game with one friends for several months now. For the last few weeks, the app freezes after each play. I have to close (swipe away) and restart it to continue the game.
Can’t login to the game.
by Couturebella on 2020/08/03 04:22
I have tried for weeks to login through Facebook or my email as they say you can get on and it just keeps saying I can’t get on their server. They told me to delete it and try again... did that about 10x and still can’t play. My husband has the same problem. They won’t fix it.
Game freezes constantly!! !
by judascain55 on 2020/08/03 03:03
I used to love this game...but every other turn it freezes up! I’ve deleted and reinstalled this game too many times...I’m tired of the ridiculous problem a game like this should not have! FIX IT OR FIND ANOTHER FOOL TO PLAY THIS TRAGIC JOKE!
Disingenuous
by Foshizzyl Himself on 2020/08/03 02:55
The game tries to get you to accidentally start games with random people. Multiple times I’ve accidentally started a game with some random Facebook friends just because the “start a new game” popup comes up just as your scrolling and in the exact position where you scroll with your thumb.
Wishywashy
by RobertL1104 on 2020/08/03 02:34
I had an updated version where rewards were accumulated a lot faster, I could watch videos to move through the solo challenge faster, and I could watch videos for more coins. The game screwed up and the only “fix” was to delete and reload the game. After that, everything was reset to the old setup. I want the new layout back.
Cancelling a game
by mdr651 on 2020/08/03 01:29
Seems I have been locked out of a game. Message keeps saying I have no more moves. I am unable to pass or end game. Please help with this.

Foreigners bother you
by TREESORANGE on 2020/08/02 23:40
I keep getting bombarded with game requests from men who continue to ask stupid questions and personal things that is none of their business. They sound like computer generated questions. They repeat the same things even after an answer. I’m tired of deleting them, I’m ready to delete Words With Friends 2
?:(
by stress 5 on 2020/08/02 23:29
you should not charge for no ads or lower price of no ads
Problem with game and no good response from help center
by freckles2222 on 2020/08/02 22:34
Really love this game, but recently games disappeared with friends from Australia and I can’t get any help. Don’t know what is going on.
Great
by Roebooth on 2020/08/02 21:58
Enjoy playing Don’t care if I win or lose That game is enjoyable
Too Many Ads
by Word director on 2020/08/02 21:05
I have been playing this game for years. I love this game. However, the amount of ads is absolutely ridiculous.
Great relaxing game that keeps my mind sharp . My grandchildreneven like to play this game
by Food4me10940 on 2020/08/02 19:03
Fun fun fun
App freezes
by Apple4Lyfe on 2020/08/02 18:27
The app freezes after almost every play. I then have to kill the app and reopen it to get it working again. I experience this on my iPhone and iPad.

Ads

Too many repetitive ads But fun game
Remove ads not working
by doubleyou2014 on 2020/08/02 15:33
I have the paid version. Recently you added a feature - watch advertisements and get 3 coins for each ad you watch, up to about 30 coins per day. This is advertising that I agree to watch that results in Free Coins. Now, you are slipping in ads that do not result in free coins, sometimes 6 advertisements or more per day. I feel since I paid for No Advertising, this wrong. I have reached out to your Support Team with two different answers that do not address this issue.
Great game but it takes forever to start playing
by Nancylms on 2020/08/02 14:01
I love love this app but when you log in , it takes forever to start to play or even for the app to open . I have an iPhone 11 so I know it’s not my phone ! Just seems like the app runs slow ! Please fix this . I love the added Lightening Games !
Enjoy the game
by Glemmy1 on 2020/08/02 13:55
Been playing for years and still love it. Not loving the 3 or 4 times I’ve had to delete and reload the app in the past few weeks (days?) for freezing up. Fix this! Apparently, they’ve fixed it!
JMP
by ?jmp45? on 2020/08/02 12:37
I love this game and play it every day but I think it’s unfair to give the opponent all the 10 point letters in the Solo Challenge. Makes it impossible to win and discourages you from even trying! Thank you for your response . 2nd review: cannot play the solo challenge anymore because it is totally rigged and unfair. Still giving the opponent the 10 count letters within the first 1-3 turns and then I get one on the list turn when it’s too late. You can sometimes win on the 3rd try after you have used all your credits to buy and use your SWAP letters trying to get one. That is not coincidence!
Max points at 1500??
by cjacinto on 2020/08/02 12:33
Attn programmers....My game appears to have maxed out at 1500 coins. Is this a programming error or is 1500 the max?
Too much
by toomuchkb on 2020/08/02 12:14
Too much going on. It s annoying. Keep it simpler with less visual noise and things popping up all the time
Too much junk
by BVZ20 on 2020/08/02 11:50
This is a really fun game to play with friends, but they keep adding all of these coins and pop ups between each turn that ruin it.
See comments
by Jocheek1 on 2020/08/02 09:42
Frustrating in a few ways. First off, the ads are enough to drive you nuts. Secondly, I have to manually change my tile color for every game. Lastly, I’ve blocked a kazillion men who use the app for picking up women. I’ve had. It.
Please fix the glitches!
by Wsveslider on 2020/08/02 08:17
I have been playing for years and now there is a duel with a leaderboard. I could stay in 1st but now because of the glitch my partner plays the game while I sit and stare at a screen that says searching. The object is too score as many points as can in 5 turns. Well as soon as the opponent is revealed it’s obvious they were playing already because the already have 100 or more points, so there is no way for me to win. This used to be fun but that is completely aggravating
Love W2
by Abbeylulu on 2020/08/02 07:09
I do enjoy playing Words With Friends as it keeps me challenged. I just wish I got Moe mixed letter selections as there are too many times I have multiple (like 3-4) of the same letter! It seems that one or the other player has that advantage. The ads are so annoying in that they get stuck or don’t go away with one click of the ‘x’. What’s up with that. Thank you though for the online game!
Fun game, but too many alerts and some flaws
by Steve Mader on 2020/08/02 01:29
I like playing this game, if feel it just takes advantage of the fact I use notifications to know when it’s may turn to send me a bunch of nonsense alerts. Also, the play button is in bad place, I sometimes accidentally hit it when trying to grab another letter—it’s annoying when the first letter or two of my word is also a word and it gets played.
Duels
by Zepheadtb on 2020/08/02 00:46
I’m spending 20 coins to buy five rounds of Duels game and getting three rounds! Please fix this. TB
This app is too messy.
by TJ Sumner on 2020/08/02 00:20
When this game used to be really simple, I had way more people that would play for me. Now with all the silly bonus items and ads, its too much. If they just kept this app SIMPLE, more people would actually use it. This is supposed to be a relaxing game, not another casino simulating trash fire. Good grief.
Problems
by g/2?3 on 2020/08/02 00:16
I’ve played for a long time but it’s locking up more when trying to open videos yo get points. Also tried to continue on solo challenge it just spun. Finally had to resign which it did. They keep changing things like taking away the two week things you could play to get points

Non-Stop Ad’s
by Magan Lynn😍 on 2020/08/01 23:02
Love the game but you cant play anything without a ridiculous amount of ad’s after every single thing you do
USED TO BE GREAT
by kinaay on 2020/08/01 21:59
Now it lags all the time and is so slow and frustrating. Now they contact me telling me to go to some site for some work around, NO, FIX YOUR AP!!!
Used to be a great game.
by Thots-be-gone on 2020/08/01 21:35
A one great game now plagued with “challenges “ that get shoved in your face with no way to turn off and unskippable animations. I don’t want to play against a computer. It’s called Words With Friends, not Words With Bots.
Great game, unpleasant experience
by rutsig on 2020/08/01 21:27
The game is great but interface is way too cluttered, and the incessant, aggressive ads make for an unpleasant experience.
Too many glitches!!!!
by Happycostcocustomer on 2020/08/01 20:13
I love playing this game with friends, however, the stupid pop ups that they want you to download WILL NOT go away, I have to shut my phone down and restart it to be able to play again or I have to delete the app and download it again. Somebody should really look into fixing this. Now you want us to pay with our tokens for the duel matches, that’s ridiculous!!!!
Miss practice games
by S.G. (Selena Gomez) on 2020/08/01 20:11
I miss the practice games and why so hard to turn off the sounds and notifications when people ready to play. I used to just check app for indicator number. I’ve had the game forever and play everyday but those are the two things that bother me.
Fix the text box!
by Nobu's mom on 2020/08/01 20:08
PLEASE fix the text box. It is impossible to go back and fix typos, the box jumps all around if you try to. There is no way to get the cursor where you want it. And stop changing text after it’s sent - or get a better algorithm to identify profanity. It’s changing words like “follow” and “opening”. There is nothing offensive about words like that.
Enough with the adverts
by Titwice on 2020/08/01 19:19
You are taking all the fun away from players. Half of what you are advertising I have installed already so your adverts are not even smart.
Wish you could fix it ASAP
by Cool Karo on 2020/08/01 17:32
The video doesn’t load? You need to fix that glitch ASAP It has been going on for too long... Please guys find a dating app and let us play.
NEXT GAMES feature-UGH!! No
by Teemactoo on 2020/08/01 15:40
I’m annoyed to the max by the new NEXT GAMES feature! It makes me a nervous wreck!! I’ve been playing for 9 years and have been through a number of updates and this one is unbearable! It makes no sense, doesn’t list all “next games” from which I could at least choose! Why is it there? Why? Please take that away! Please!
Lisa
by Lisa G62 on 2020/08/01 15:33
I love this game. I wish there was a way to get tech support when needed. Also, when someone I don’t know challenges me to a game, I wish you could see their profile before accepting. There are people trying to catfish regular pool players.
Ads are incredibly annoying!
by Leonjkennedy on 2020/08/01 15:17
I’ve never had to do a negative review before in a game. The ads are incredibly annoying. Everyone you play a word not just one ad comes up but then another. And to get rid of them is 100 coins to just get rid of the annoyance for one day!! Makes me want to throw my phone. Instant delete.
Love this game...
by Epicurian94507 on 2020/08/01 13:46
But the past couple of updates causes the game to freeze up and slows it down a lot.

Great but has drawbacks
by Blossomshoals on 2020/08/01 10:38
I play this game with family members who live across the continent and we enjoy it. However, lately, the game introduces strange real and non real players on my game. I don’t want to play a woman whose picture displays her tongue hanging out with bandages on her neck. Them there are the back to back ads that total 12-15 seconds each and break any concentration on the game. I then just turn it off. Now there is a person of color whose photo shows him reclining as if he is doing something he should do in private. Why would the game pair me, an elderly woman, with such a person. Stop this! I only play with my family! Zynga contacted me and gave me the instructions on how to chose the people I wish to play with. Thank you for helping me and I shall take your advice. My family enjoys the game and I can keep in touch with my niece daily and we can converse while we play the game. Her life is busy and she only has a few moments a day to play and we have a four hour time difference.
Ads!
by AWS1401 on 2020/08/01 02:49
I understand the need for ads and the purpose of making money from paying for ad-free. However, every OTHER word & then a 10+\-second ad is too much! I deleted the app a few times but my husband and I enjoyed playing each other. I only made it to level 9 before I gave in and deleted it for the last time. I have no games on my phone as it is because I don’t spend much time on my phone, so this was something new for me. I just don’t understand the need for so many. An ad every other word is not going to enlighten me to go play another game- frankly it made me want to delete the only game I did have. It was taken way too long to finish a game just for the sake of an ad.
Fun with words
by Basketmaker 7 on 2020/08/01 02:38
Fun with words is synonymous with Words with Friends!
What happened?
by sflanon on 2020/08/01 02:22
The latest update with iOS, or the app has so many bugs it’s intolerable. Fix it or I’m done!
Buggy
by Bertamom on 2020/08/01 01:38
I’ve played thus game for several years and just in the last month it has gotten VERY BUGGY! It keeps freezing up. Please fix this before I get so frustrated I have to find a different game.
Glitches Galore
by Srhona on 2020/08/01 00:48
I’ve been playing for years. Today, I’ve had to quit out, and reopen 3-5 times. I used swap letters and it gave an error twice. I played a word, and it disappeared when I shut the app. I had to play it again. Also, I agree with the person who thinks the next game should just be next as before. It’s a ridiculous thing. Please address the glitches as of today.
Great Game
by ButlerJim on 2020/08/01 00:42
I have enjoyed playing this game for many years. When I recently switched phones and encountered an app download problem, Zynga tech support was very timely and helpful in resolving the problem. I am very happy that,thanks to their help;I am able to continue playing my all time favorite game app.
Words with friends
by Au re on 2020/08/01 00:38
I enjoy the game but for the past few weeks it freezes. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling...turning off my phone and back on..coming out of the game and just resetting...nothing works.
Watch out for the ads
by ResqRick on 2020/08/01 00:00
The application shows many ads. Some of them slide even though you click and then they try to charge you 9.99/month forever.

Why do you fix things that aren’t broken? It is so irritating! I have begged before for OPT OUT on many of your “features”. Your original Classic game was great - this one is not!
Games won’t load
by KayMess717 on 2020/07/31 20:58
I haven’t been able to play my games in 5 days because they will not load anymore! I get notifications that my opponents are nudging me but I can’t get in! I had to delete the app hoping that the games would somehow be stored in “ the cloud” but I can’t find them so I have to install the game again, I’m so sad 😞
Move the play button
by Epnomn on 2020/07/31 20:42
I love playing this game. However, I try many combinations and accidentally hit the play button all the time. Maybe I’m the only one with big ol’ mitts, but I don’t think so!
Used to love it but...
by happy scout on 2020/07/31 20:38
I can no longer open the app on my IPad. Not the same fun playing on my phone. I fear deleting the app on my iPad because I have 700 coins. So disappointing. Started about two weeks ago. Used to play daily. I will email my friends that I am no longer able to play as much. Will do one game with my 89 year old aunt on my phone.
Too many bugs!
by gardenangel48 on 2020/07/31 20:38
I love playing WWF but I hate when the board freezes or the solo challenges cheats me of time or turns by malfunctioning.
Long-time worder
by Gerithegreek on 2020/07/31 20:07
I've been enjoying this game quite a while—I'm an English Major, not from Lake Wobegon. I love the fact that when I complain or have a question, I get a fast response.
Bugs galore
by jennyluau on 2020/07/31 18:58
I’ve been playing WWF for years. The game is fun but the interface is SO clunky. The amount of taps to navigate is inefficient. The super slow loads of “prizes” and “freebies” is more annoyance than benefit. Solo play has not worked for me in years. The troubleshooting I receive - delete app and re-install, does NOT work. Their newest, Quick Play sitch does not work either - scores are not correct and leaderboard is empty. Strip the game down to essentials so functionality actually works. Makes no sense to keep adding on to something inherently broken.
Game invitations
by music.heart on 2020/07/31 18:54
Long time player. Enjoy playing however...a few issues with the game. Today I played and won the game but on the screen listing wins and losses, it was counted as a loss. What’s up?
Frustrating
by Gamardo95 on 2020/07/31 17:54
Have played for years but game board has been freezing. Can’t access games!! Please address.
Awful update
by GCMamaGC on 2020/07/31 16:57
PLEASE remove the latest feature NEXT GAMES that seems to have taken the place of the simple “next”. At the very least, make it optional. There is too much movement, which is very distracting as you are playing. Sorry, but I immediately hated it, not least because the rapid movement is triggering headaches.
Why did you change Duels!?!
by blahdeblah$)(;:/)$& on 2020/07/31 15:27
I dislike intensely that Duels is now played in the Quick game format. I loved the way it was before and had hoped that u would make it available all the time like Lightning Round. Please change it back at the very least. Thank you!
Fast plays
by Sweetsaltfish on 2020/07/31 14:46
I do not like classic plays as they are too long and most opponents end up going days without playing. The classic games take forever to end
Love it but...
by janetlea on 2020/07/31 14:33
Having difficulty deleting completed games. I can only delete one at a time and it is very slow. Is there a way to delete ALL completed games?
Game is addicting, wish developer cared more...
by argile91 on 2020/07/31 14:14
The game is fun, daily ritual. Every month or so, the app freezes up, glitches get more annoying and I have to delete app the reload. This is frustrating. Seems the developers could spend more time on maintenance and upgrades vs time making new tiles, reworking same app ads with different animations.
I used to love this game
by bsyrowhbfkdh on 2020/07/31 13:28
But then you developers suddenly got greedy with rewards to the point where it is almost impossible to win any points to use within the game. I don’t care about tile colors and the other sham “goals” that you spend a lot of money coming up with that have nothing to do with the game. I don’t enjoy this much anymore.
Freezes
by Skkkiii on 2020/07/31 13:22
Although I had no problem with this for years, I am now having frequent freezes where I have to delete WWF and reload it. Please help!

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.
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.
Trollers abundant
by Marybuzz on 2018/12/20 18:01
I love to play Words with Friends 2. A great game with lots of game options. Better than Scrabble, game-wise. BUT....Trollers are like a virus on this game. It’s HORRIBLE. They only want to start a game, ask for personal and private information, get you to go on other forums of chat and picture rooms, ask for money, ask for pictures, they are pressing and bothersome....some are just insulting and pushy. They are a bad intrusion on the game. The trollers are always NEW players...just started that day or the day before....because they hop from one identity to another to troll gamers. I know we can turn chat off...but sometimes it is nice to converse with a true player and talk the game. Plus...the biggest negative is that once WE discover they are a troller, like after 2 or 3 moves, if WE resign, WE get penalized the loss. I HATE that. I don’t want a loss because I want to dump a troller. So I eventually just stay on and ignore until they might resign. They don’t resign very often. They usually Time out then no one gets the win. It’s a waste of my gaming numbers. I only get 30 players at a time. If 8 are trollers...it’s a wasted space. Anyway...Beware....Trollers are on the prowl in this game and it’s extremely annoying to say the least. Most trollers can’t even speak English...they might go by a script. It’s pretty bad.
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???
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!
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.
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. 😊
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.
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
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.
Good game, needs some minor tuning
by Xccam on 2020/03/10 22:00
There really isn’t much to complain about, save the ads that get played. Some of them are just a little bit of a pain to get through, and I wind up force closing the app to get around the delay between EVERY turn. As well, I’d like to see a reset on the apps highest word scores seen when you view the dictionary. There is no way someone scored 525 points on a single two letter word, as well as many of the other such instances of other buggy/bogus stuff when it comes to those records. Nitpicking perhaps, but otherwise it’s a decent game, good for the brain, and a way I pass time with a couple of friends who live far from me. I’ve also heard from others (and a review of other reviews) that some men treat this like a dating platform of some sort? Not sure why...I chat with some people I play with, but not too many of them. If you ever see me around...I’m just there to play. Maybe put a picture of your husband/boyfriend/random man rather than one of yourself and that may stop. I have my manly face up on my profile and nobody hits on me 😂
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.
Trollers and Men think it is a dating App
by Melcy82 on 2019/04/20 16:51
I have been playing on and off since 2016. I expect the adds since I don’t pay for it but the amount of men wanting my personal information lately is astonishing. As soon as I politely decline or mute the conversation they stop playing so that messes with my game stats. There are obviously a serious amount of trollers on the app and men in general treat it like a dating app. I changed my profile picture, and name, so I at least get fewer requests from men. At one time I even changed my profile to male to see if I would get requests from men. When my profile was listed as male I got zero requests to play from men. This shows that they are specifically targeting female profiles. I don’t accept any game requests from men at all unless they are a friend I know personally. These guys don’t care that I am married at all. This app has so much potential it’s sad that it has turned into a trollers playground. Don’t accept game play requests from men unless you know them as a general rule and as soon as they request your email address or personal info report their account regardless of their gender. Start reporting these profiles!!
Base game fantastic, extras obnoxious
by KitKat A on 2018/06/29 23:34
I’ve been playing WWF for years and I used to love it. It’s the first thing I play when I wake up and I usually play it several more times throughout the day. Lately there have been so many features I am unable to opt out of that I’m seriously contemplating leaving this app altogether. I was uncomfortable with features that essentially let you pay to cheat (Hindsight, Word Radar, Swap+) knowing that even if I don’t use them, my friends had that access and I’d never know. Then I would open the app just to have a gift box given to me I couldn’t opt out of so I could get more cheats or coins (usually used to buy cheats). Then they couldn’t handle me actually finishing my turns and leaving the app so just this week they started throwing me into a “solo game“ against a bot as soon as I’ve finished my last turn with my real friends. I’ve resigned all these games, but I’m frustrated that I have to. I paid for the ad-free version so I wouldn’t be harassed. I would like this game so much more if I had the option to reject cheats, gift boxes and unwanted solo games. I want to go back to loving this app more than I hate it.
Glitches galore
by Chelsjbb on 2017/12/06 16:28
I updated my iPhone to the new iOS and it made me get the newer version of words. At first I was excited because the old version was starting to get glitchy. I would get notifications saying it was my turn but when I went into the game it was saying that it was still my opponents turn. Now with the new app I have this glitch ALL the time. I’ve had to delete it and re download four times in a week so it would recognize it’s my turn. On top of that when I do re download the app, I have trouble logging into Facebook with it. Bringing me in circles saying it has trouble logging in and to try again. Then when I can manage to get past those two speed bumps and finish a game, it won’t let me rematch. I get an “oops something went wrong try again”. Even if I just try to start a fresh game with the same opponent I get that error message. Last but probably not least, the annoying adds they play in between games will have sound even when all my sound is clearly turned off. I’m trying to play to fall asleep and it wakes up the person in bed next to me with the loud ads that aren’t even supposed to have sound to begin with. Super frustrated with this app. Really hope it gets fixed soon or I’m going back to scrabble.
Free dating app?
by T-Town Dragon on 2019/08/12 13:48
Are you aware people are trying to use this app as a free dating site? It’s so infuriating! I enjoy playing the scrabble type game - If I wanted to find a date, I’d be on a dating app - In order to achieve the daily/weekly goals I accept challenges from other players. However, some of these players only want ‘to get to know me’, or want me chat with them on another app. When I don’t give them personal information, or agree to download that app, they stop playing. Now, I have to wait 12 days for them to ‘time out’ or I can decline the game and I take the ‘loss’. I like that I can mute the chat. I just wish there was a way to get them off my ‘waiting for their move’ list. Apparently, I can only have X number of games going. Therefore, I can’t start a game with someone I know because these people haven’t timed out yet. Please decrease the length of time it takes for a player to ‘time out’ or add a ‘troll’ button to end the game (with someone trolling for information) without penalizing the person being trolled. Then if said person gets marked as a ‘troll’ X number of times their account gets closed. They’re not really playing the game anyway (always playing 2-3 letter words).

Problems
by m7):m on 2020/08/03 22:54
Love the game. Don’t love all the ads. Just switched to new iPad and ap will not open past the screen saver. Addition: did get a response and one of their solutions worked.
Ads are ruining the game
by Linc3266 on 2020/08/03 22:01
Good game, fun to play, but the ads are taking the fun out of the game. Some of the ads won’t even let you exit when the exit button shows up. Instead they take you to the App Store to download whatever was being advertised. Also they are giving rewards, like we’re children that need gold stars, or special recognition. I am getting more and more disgusted with these problems
Something is wrong
by xenchu2 on 2020/08/03 21:51
I am new to this game but so far so good. However the software will not let me into the game. I can only get to the opening page and cannot go farther.
Terrible glitches
by OmaSumshine on 2020/08/03 21:47
This app freezes up every couple of days to the point that I have to delete and reinstall regularly. I have reached out to the company and have not gotten any responses.
New update freezes
by julsb1958 on 2020/08/03 21:39
The new update freezes before I can submit the word. I have to do a force close and reopen the app. Please fix it.
Words with friends
by rudolph renda on 2020/08/03 21:27
Great game I enjoy immensely. But my game with a couple of individua constantly freezes and I have to shut off my phone and reboot to play. I also deleted the ap and re registered but the problem persists.
Routinely Freezes
by Foldsjr on 2020/08/03 21:10
Great game. I can put up with the ads. After all, I didn’t join the site. My only gripe is how often the site freezes, especially during an ad for one of their other games.
I hate Quick Play!!!
by F....a on 2020/08/03 21:03
As much as I enjoy this game,I equally dislike Quick Play. It’s take your life lines even when the app is searching for an opponent. 😠 the board freezes and gives the opponent free range to play and win. I have checked my internet connection and all of my bars are on so it’s not the internet. Please allow players the option to cancel a Quick Play, if an opponent isn’t selected. And have the board disable for both players when it freezes. Please!!! Please fix!!! Other than that I enjoy the app very much.

My app always freezes and I have to reboot it.
Viruses !!!
by Emeraldjoy on 2020/08/03 20:09
(2) I’m adding a little more since I wrote before about their advertisements were getting like viruses. Now I truly believe that they are viruses. When the advertisement comes on, as soon as you finish your move, it will not go away. If you try to wait and X it out when it’s done, it will start playing the ad again, and if you try to X it out again it takes you to the App Store and when you try to leave the App Store, it will take you back to the game again and start playing it all over again. I hate those kinds of ads. I don’t mind watching a short ad, then X out when done, but this is ridiculous 😩! (1 ) I use to love to play this game, but they have so many advertisement interruptions, and most of the time you can’t get rid of them because they come on and will not go away. So I wonder if they monitor the advertisements in at all. I don’t mind the advertisements usually, because usually they do their thing and go away. But more and more they’re not going away, they’re just staying and want let you get out of them. To me that signifies a virus!! I’m leaving if it doesn’t stop. I sure can’t afford a virus.
The programmers don’t know the English language
by Tfeliot on 2020/08/03 19:30
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.
Still no fast play
by Hycghhn on 2020/08/03 19:21
Was hoping they would bring fast play back with this update 🙄Also, please stop with the bots. WWF getting worse now it will not open! Oh well guess it’s time to move on. Does not notify you when it’s your turn!! Still no new update 8-3-2020 please update soon why does it make you claim rewards automatically for the solo challenge
Could be fun
by makearealgamewithnoadds on 2020/08/03 17:53
There are way to many adds and it makes it very frustrating, can’t even enjoy the game without a video add after every turn. I would keep this app and download more if it weren’t for the adds. Deleting this crap.
No more fast game?
by WWF no bueno on 2020/08/03 17:23
I couldn’t give Zero stars or I would. Bring back the option for fast play games!
Too many ads
by Grand R on 2020/08/03 17:18
Ads are too long and wastes time.
Specifically on Quick Play
by Joyous on 2020/08/03 16:32
I really like the Quick Play feature, but it’s glitchy and they are weirdly stingy with play opportunities. (Sometimes I’ll start and match and my opponent will already have 50 points. Other times it will say there was a “problem” and I can’t play, but it will still take my ticket, preventing me from playing for another 2 hours.) If I can’t rely on my earned stars or tickets equating into more play (which I don’t see why the app wants to restrict anyway, except in hopes I’ll eventually purchase things: I won’t), then why should I try? Anyway, the app is fun, but lots of glitches and stingy-ness with play opportunities is obnoxious. (Another glitch: I also have a practice round that my daughter started frozen on my list of games for 79 days now.)
Really Fun
by Veronica Jobbs on 2020/08/03 16:17
It is a great game, if like scrabble then you love this game. My mom plays it non-stop, but I love it too
Good enough fun
by afoxinbox on 2020/08/03 16:13
Too bad about all the questionable folks trying to get people to give personal info. Since it has become such a pervasive problem, I’m switching from blocking them to reporting them.
Why the Ads
by from above 1979 on 2020/08/03 13:59
I paid for the app in order to remove the ads. Worked for about a month and now I’m getting ads again. Fix this please.
Too Many "rewards" and "promos"
by Runin4lyf on 2020/08/03 13:58
I'm fine with ads because it's a free game, but you can't even open the app without being bombarded by a bunch of daily rewards, weekly/daily goals, coin rewards, etc. Even after you finish a turn and skip the ad, you still have to dodge at least 3 screens with useless rewards that I couldn't care less about. Additionally, they have started making notifications for rewards and special promos, and I can't turn off notifications because then i'll miss when someone makes a move. I understand why they are there, but I have been playing for years and have never once checked a reward or tried for a goal. Please make it an option to turn these off. I just want to play the occasional game with an old friend or relative without being inundated by useless notifications.
Mess since update
by Katsgames on 2020/08/03 13:51
I did the update yesterday and now it keeps freezing when I try playing. Then it worked some, but now freezing again.
Freezing
by Alanna35 on 2020/08/03 12:25
The app started freezing about 2 weeks ago after I play a word. I have to turn my phone off and back on or wait until another player plays, click on the player from phones home notification screen to call play again. It’s very frustrating.
Stop Changing Things!
by mrsmnc on 2020/08/03 12:22
I’ve been playing WWF for 11 years and love it, but lately the game has been cheaping out. The new quick play option is fun but you get fewer opportunities to reload tickets with out using coins to “buy” them. The coin rewards are lower now so it takes much longer to win coins, clearly trying to get people to buy them. Also, the privacy settings seem looser and random people pop up for games right on my games tab so I’ve accidentally started several games with strangers by mistake which s annoying because so many people seem to think they’re on Tinder instead of WWF. Still a favorite game but needs t revert to about a month ago...
App freezes after each play
by misu2002 on 2020/08/03 04:36
I have been playing this game with one friends for several months now. For the last few weeks, the app freezes after each play. I have to close (swipe away) and restart it to continue the game.
Can’t login to the game.
by Couturebella on 2020/08/03 04:22
I have tried for weeks to login through Facebook or my email as they say you can get on and it just keeps saying I can’t get on their server. They told me to delete it and try again... did that about 10x and still can’t play. My husband has the same problem. They won’t fix it.
Game freezes constantly!! !
by judascain55 on 2020/08/03 03:03
I used to love this game...but every other turn it freezes up! I’ve deleted and reinstalled this game too many times...I’m tired of the ridiculous problem a game like this should not have! FIX IT OR FIND ANOTHER FOOL TO PLAY THIS TRAGIC JOKE!
Disingenuous
by Foshizzyl Himself on 2020/08/03 02:55
The game tries to get you to accidentally start games with random people. Multiple times I’ve accidentally started a game with some random Facebook friends just because the “start a new game” popup comes up just as your scrolling and in the exact position where you scroll with your thumb.
Wishywashy
by RobertL1104 on 2020/08/03 02:34
I had an updated version where rewards were accumulated a lot faster, I could watch videos to move through the solo challenge faster, and I could watch videos for more coins. The game screwed up and the only “fix” was to delete and reload the game. After that, everything was reset to the old setup. I want the new layout back.
Cancelling a game
by mdr651 on 2020/08/03 01:29
Seems I have been locked out of a game. Message keeps saying I have no more moves. I am unable to pass or end game. Please help with this.

Foreigners bother you
by TREESORANGE on 2020/08/02 23:40
I keep getting bombarded with game requests from men who continue to ask stupid questions and personal things that is none of their business. They sound like computer generated questions. They repeat the same things even after an answer. I’m tired of deleting them, I’m ready to delete Words With Friends 2
?:(
by stress 5 on 2020/08/02 23:29
you should not charge for no ads or lower price of no ads
Problem with game and no good response from help center
by freckles2222 on 2020/08/02 22:34
Really love this game, but recently games disappeared with friends from Australia and I can’t get any help. Don’t know what is going on.
Great
by Roebooth on 2020/08/02 21:58
Enjoy playing Don’t care if I win or lose That game is enjoyable
Too Many Ads
by Word director on 2020/08/02 21:05
I have been playing this game for years. I love this game. However, the amount of ads is absolutely ridiculous.
Great relaxing game that keeps my mind sharp . My grandchildreneven like to play this game

Ads

Too many repetitive ads But fun game
Remove ads not working
by doubleyou2014 on 2020/08/02 15:33
I have the paid version. Recently you added a feature - watch advertisements and get 3 coins for each ad you watch, up to about 30 coins per day. This is advertising that I agree to watch that results in Free Coins. Now, you are slipping in ads that do not result in free coins, sometimes 6 advertisements or more per day. I feel since I paid for No Advertising, this wrong. I have reached out to your Support Team with two different answers that do not address this issue.
Great game but it takes forever to start playing
by Nancylms on 2020/08/02 14:01
I love love this app but when you log in , it takes forever to start to play or even for the app to open . I have an iPhone 11 so I know it’s not my phone ! Just seems like the app runs slow ! Please fix this . I love the added Lightening Games !
Enjoy the game
by Glemmy1 on 2020/08/02 13:55
Been playing for years and still love it. Not loving the 3 or 4 times I’ve had to delete and reload the app in the past few weeks (days?) for freezing up. Fix this! Apparently, they’ve fixed it!
JMP
by ?jmp45? on 2020/08/02 12:37
I love this game and play it every day but I think it’s unfair to give the opponent all the 10 point letters in the Solo Challenge. Makes it impossible to win and discourages you from even trying! Thank you for your response . 2nd review: cannot play the solo challenge anymore because it is totally rigged and unfair. Still giving the opponent the 10 count letters within the first 1-3 turns and then I get one on the list turn when it’s too late. You can sometimes win on the 3rd try after you have used all your credits to buy and use your SWAP letters trying to get one. That is not coincidence!
Max points at 1500??
by cjacinto on 2020/08/02 12:33
Attn programmers....My game appears to have maxed out at 1500 coins. Is this a programming error or is 1500 the max?
Too much
by toomuchkb on 2020/08/02 12:14
Too much going on. It s annoying. Keep it simpler with less visual noise and things popping up all the time
Too much junk
by BVZ20 on 2020/08/02 11:50
This is a really fun game to play with friends, but they keep adding all of these coins and pop ups between each turn that ruin it.
See comments
by Jocheek1 on 2020/08/02 09:42
Frustrating in a few ways. First off, the ads are enough to drive you nuts. Secondly, I have to manually change my tile color for every game. Lastly, I’ve blocked a kazillion men who use the app for picking up women. I’ve had. It.
Please fix the glitches!
by Wsveslider on 2020/08/02 08:17
I have been playing for years and now there is a duel with a leaderboard. I could stay in 1st but now because of the glitch my partner plays the game while I sit and stare at a screen that says searching. The object is too score as many points as can in 5 turns. Well as soon as the opponent is revealed it’s obvious they were playing already because the already have 100 or more points, so there is no way for me to win. This used to be fun but that is completely aggravating
Love W2
by Abbeylulu on 2020/08/02 07:09
I do enjoy playing Words With Friends as it keeps me challenged. I just wish I got Moe mixed letter selections as there are too many times I have multiple (like 3-4) of the same letter! It seems that one or the other player has that advantage. The ads are so annoying in that they get stuck or don’t go away with one click of the ‘x’. What’s up with that. Thank you though for the online game!
Fun game, but too many alerts and some flaws
by Steve Mader on 2020/08/02 01:29
I like playing this game, if feel it just takes advantage of the fact I use notifications to know when it’s may turn to send me a bunch of nonsense alerts. Also, the play button is in bad place, I sometimes accidentally hit it when trying to grab another letter—it’s annoying when the first letter or two of my word is also a word and it gets played.
Duels
by Zepheadtb on 2020/08/02 00:46
I’m spending 20 coins to buy five rounds of Duels game and getting three rounds! Please fix this. TB
This app is too messy.
by TJ Sumner on 2020/08/02 00:20
When this game used to be really simple, I had way more people that would play for me. Now with all the silly bonus items and ads, its too much. If they just kept this app SIMPLE, more people would actually use it. This is supposed to be a relaxing game, not another casino simulating trash fire. Good grief.
Problems
by g/2?3 on 2020/08/02 00:16
I’ve played for a long time but it’s locking up more when trying to open videos yo get points. Also tried to continue on solo challenge it just spun. Finally had to resign which it did. They keep changing things like taking away the two week things you could play to get points

Non-Stop Ad’s
by Magan Lynn😍 on 2020/08/01 23:02
Love the game but you cant play anything without a ridiculous amount of ad’s after every single thing you do
USED TO BE GREAT
by kinaay on 2020/08/01 21:59
Now it lags all the time and is so slow and frustrating. Now they contact me telling me to go to some site for some work around, NO, FIX YOUR AP!!!
Used to be a great game.
by Thots-be-gone on 2020/08/01 21:35
A one great game now plagued with “challenges “ that get shoved in your face with no way to turn off and unskippable animations. I don’t want to play against a computer. It’s called Words With Friends, not Words With Bots.
Great game, unpleasant experience
by rutsig on 2020/08/01 21:27
The game is great but interface is way too cluttered, and the incessant, aggressive ads make for an unpleasant experience.
Too many glitches!!!!
by Happycostcocustomer on 2020/08/01 20:13
I love playing this game with friends, however, the stupid pop ups that they want you to download WILL NOT go away, I have to shut my phone down and restart it to be able to play again or I have to delete the app and download it again. Somebody should really look into fixing this. Now you want us to pay with our tokens for the duel matches, that’s ridiculous!!!!
Miss practice games
by S.G. (Selena Gomez) on 2020/08/01 20:11
I miss the practice games and why so hard to turn off the sounds and notifications when people ready to play. I used to just check app for indicator number. I’ve had the game forever and play everyday but those are the two things that bother me.
Fix the text box!
by Nobu's mom on 2020/08/01 20:08
PLEASE fix the text box. It is impossible to go back and fix typos, the box jumps all around if you try to. There is no way to get the cursor where you want it. And stop changing text after it’s sent - or get a better algorithm to identify profanity. It’s changing words like “follow” and “opening”. There is nothing offensive about words like that.
Enough with the adverts
by Titwice on 2020/08/01 19:19
You are taking all the fun away from players. Half of what you are advertising I have installed already so your adverts are not even smart.
Wish you could fix it ASAP
by Cool Karo on 2020/08/01 17:32
The video doesn’t load? You need to fix that glitch ASAP It has been going on for too long... Please guys find a dating app and let us play.
NEXT GAMES feature-UGH!! No
by Teemactoo on 2020/08/01 15:40
I’m annoyed to the max by the new NEXT GAMES feature! It makes me a nervous wreck!! I’ve been playing for 9 years and have been through a number of updates and this one is unbearable! It makes no sense, doesn’t list all “next games” from which I could at least choose! Why is it there? Why? Please take that away! Please!
Lisa
by Lisa G62 on 2020/08/01 15:33
I love this game. I wish there was a way to get tech support when needed. Also, when someone I don’t know challenges me to a game, I wish you could see their profile before accepting. There are people trying to catfish regular pool players.
Ads are incredibly annoying!
by Leonjkennedy on 2020/08/01 15:17
I’ve never had to do a negative review before in a game. The ads are incredibly annoying. Everyone you play a word not just one ad comes up but then another. And to get rid of them is 100 coins to just get rid of the annoyance for one day!! Makes me want to throw my phone. Instant delete.
Love this game...
by Epicurian94507 on 2020/08/01 13:46
But the past couple of updates causes the game to freeze up and slows it down a lot.
Words.

Very, very slow to get into game. Can’t get cool chameleon Kris to play yesterday or today and prob wouldn’t get my badge for the week. Also, watch didn’t come up for today in my rewards and challenges so I could earn some extra points
Great but has drawbacks
by Blossomshoals on 2020/08/01 10:38
I play this game with family members who live across the continent and we enjoy it. However, lately, the game introduces strange real and non real players on my game. I don’t want to play a woman whose picture displays her tongue hanging out with bandages on her neck. Them there are the back to back ads that total 12-15 seconds each and break any concentration on the game. I then just turn it off. Now there is a person of color whose photo shows him reclining as if he is doing something he should do in private. Why would the game pair me, an elderly woman, with such a person. Stop this! I only play with my family! Zynga contacted me and gave me the instructions on how to chose the people I wish to play with. Thank you for helping me and I shall take your advice. My family enjoys the game and I can keep in touch with my niece daily and we can converse while we play the game. Her life is busy and she only has a few moments a day to play and we have a four hour time difference.
Ads!
by AWS1401 on 2020/08/01 02:49
I understand the need for ads and the purpose of making money from paying for ad-free. However, every OTHER word & then a 10+\-second ad is too much! I deleted the app a few times but my husband and I enjoyed playing each other. I only made it to level 9 before I gave in and deleted it for the last time. I have no games on my phone as it is because I don’t spend much time on my phone, so this was something new for me. I just don’t understand the need for so many. An ad every other word is not going to enlighten me to go play another game- frankly it made me want to delete the only game I did have. It was taken way too long to finish a game just for the sake of an ad.
Fun with words
by Basketmaker 7 on 2020/08/01 02:38
Fun with words is synonymous with Words with Friends!
What happened?
by sflanon on 2020/08/01 02:22
The latest update with iOS, or the app has so many bugs it’s intolerable. Fix it or I’m done!
Buggy
by Bertamom on 2020/08/01 01:38
I’ve played thus game for several years and just in the last month it has gotten VERY BUGGY! It keeps freezing up. Please fix this before I get so frustrated I have to find a different game.
Glitches Galore
by Srhona on 2020/08/01 00:48
I’ve been playing for years. Today, I’ve had to quit out, and reopen 3-5 times. I used swap letters and it gave an error twice. I played a word, and it disappeared when I shut the app. I had to play it again. Also, I agree with the person who thinks the next game should just be next as before. It’s a ridiculous thing. Please address the glitches as of today.
Great Game
by ButlerJim on 2020/08/01 00:42
I have enjoyed playing this game for many years. When I recently switched phones and encountered an app download problem, Zynga tech support was very timely and helpful in resolving the problem. I am very happy that,thanks to their help;I am able to continue playing my all time favorite game app.

Watch out for the ads
by ResqRick on 2020/08/01 00:00
The application shows many ads. Some of them slide even though you click and then they try to charge you 9.99/month forever.
Hate the NEXT GAMES feature
by Wkhpm on 2020/07/31 22:14
Why do you fix things that aren’t broken? It is so irritating! I have begged before for OPT OUT on many of your “features”. Your original Classic game was great - this one is not!
Games won’t load
by KayMess717 on 2020/07/31 20:58
I haven’t been able to play my games in 5 days because they will not load anymore! I get notifications that my opponents are nudging me but I can’t get in! I had to delete the app hoping that the games would somehow be stored in “ the cloud” but I can’t find them so I have to install the game again, I’m so sad 😞
Move the play button
by Epnomn on 2020/07/31 20:42
I love playing this game. However, I try many combinations and accidentally hit the play button all the time. Maybe I’m the only one with big ol’ mitts, but I don’t think so!
Used to love it but...
by happy scout on 2020/07/31 20:38
I can no longer open the app on my IPad. Not the same fun playing on my phone. I fear deleting the app on my iPad because I have 700 coins. So disappointing. Started about two weeks ago. Used to play daily. I will email my friends that I am no longer able to play as much. Will do one game with my 89 year old aunt on my phone.
Too many bugs!
by gardenangel48 on 2020/07/31 20:38
I love playing WWF but I hate when the board freezes or the solo challenges cheats me of time or turns by malfunctioning.
Long-time worder
by Gerithegreek on 2020/07/31 20:07
I've been enjoying this game quite a while—I'm an English Major, not from Lake Wobegon. I love the fact that when I complain or have a question, I get a fast response.
Bugs galore
by jennyluau on 2020/07/31 18:58
I’ve been playing WWF for years. The game is fun but the interface is SO clunky. The amount of taps to navigate is inefficient. The super slow loads of “prizes” and “freebies” is more annoyance than benefit. Solo play has not worked for me in years. The troubleshooting I receive - delete app and re-install, does NOT work. Their newest, Quick Play sitch does not work either - scores are not correct and leaderboard is empty. Strip the game down to essentials so functionality actually works. Makes no sense to keep adding on to something inherently broken.
Game invitations
by music.heart on 2020/07/31 18:54
Long time player. Enjoy playing however...a few issues with the game. Today I played and won the game but on the screen listing wins and losses, it was counted as a loss. What’s up?
Frustrating

Awful update
by GCMamaGC on 2020/07/31 16:57
PLEASE remove the latest feature NEXT GAMES that seems to have taken the place of the simple “next”. At the very least, make it optional. There is too much movement, which is very distracting as you are playing. Sorry, but I immediately hated it, not least because the rapid movement is triggering headaches.
Why did you change Duels!?!
by blahdeblah$)(;:/)$& on 2020/07/31 15:27
I dislike intensely that Duels is now played in the Quick game format. I loved the way it was before and had hoped that u would make it available all the time like Lightning Round. Please change it back at the very least. Thank you!

Game is addicting, wish developer cared more...
by argile91 on 2020/07/31 14:14
The game is fun, daily ritual. Every month or so, the app freezes up, glitches get more annoying and I have to delete app the reload. This is frustrating. Seems the developers could spend more time on maintenance and upgrades vs time making new tiles, reworking same app ads with different animations.
I used to love this game
by bsyrowhbfkdh on 2020/07/31 13:28
But then you developers suddenly got greedy with rewards to the point where it is almost impossible to win any points to use within the game. I don’t care about tile colors and the other sham “goals” that you spend a lot of money coming up with that have nothing to do with the game. I don’t enjoy this much anymore.

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.
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.
Trollers abundant
by Marybuzz on 2018/12/20 18:01
I love to play Words with Friends 2. A great game with lots of game options. Better than Scrabble, game-wise. BUT....Trollers are like a virus on this game. It’s HORRIBLE. They only want to start a game, ask for personal and private information, get you to go on other forums of chat and picture rooms, ask for money, ask for pictures, they are pressing and bothersome....some are just insulting and pushy. They are a bad intrusion on the game. The trollers are always NEW players...just started that day or the day before....because they hop from one identity to another to troll gamers. I know we can turn chat off...but sometimes it is nice to converse with a true player and talk the game. Plus...the biggest negative is that once WE discover they are a troller, like after 2 or 3 moves, if WE resign, WE get penalized the loss. I HATE that. I don’t want a loss because I want to dump a troller. So I eventually just stay on and ignore until they might resign. They don’t resign very often. They usually Time out then no one gets the win. It’s a waste of my gaming numbers. I only get 30 players at a time. If 8 are trollers...it’s a wasted space. Anyway...Beware....Trollers are on the prowl in this game and it’s extremely annoying to say the least. Most trollers can’t even speak English...they might go by a script. It’s pretty bad.
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???
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!
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!

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.
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. 😊
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.
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
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...

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

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.
Good game, needs some minor tuning
by Xccam on 2020/03/10 22:00
There really isn’t much to complain about, save the ads that get played. Some of them are just a little bit of a pain to get through, and I wind up force closing the app to get around the delay between EVERY turn. As well, I’d like to see a reset on the apps highest word scores seen when you view the dictionary. There is no way someone scored 525 points on a single two letter word, as well as many of the other such instances of other buggy/bogus stuff when it comes to those records. Nitpicking perhaps, but otherwise it’s a decent game, good for the brain, and a way I pass time with a couple of friends who live far from me. I’ve also heard from others (and a review of other reviews) that some men treat this like a dating platform of some sort? Not sure why...I chat with some people I play with, but not too many of them. If you ever see me around...I’m just there to play. Maybe put a picture of your husband/boyfriend/random man rather than one of yourself and that may stop. I have my manly face up on my profile and nobody hits on me 😂
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.
Trollers and Men think it is a dating App
by Melcy82 on 2019/04/20 16:51
I have been playing on and off since 2016. I expect the adds since I don’t pay for it but the amount of men wanting my personal information lately is astonishing. As soon as I politely decline or mute the conversation they stop playing so that messes with my game stats. There are obviously a serious amount of trollers on the app and men in general treat it like a dating app. I changed my profile picture, and name, so I at least get fewer requests from men. At one time I even changed my profile to male to see if I would get requests from men. When my profile was listed as male I got zero requests to play from men. This shows that they are specifically targeting female profiles. I don’t accept any game requests from men at all unless they are a friend I know personally. These guys don’t care that I am married at all. This app has so much potential it’s sad that it has turned into a trollers playground. Don’t accept game play requests from men unless you know them as a general rule and as soon as they request your email address or personal info report their account regardless of their gender. Start reporting these profiles!!
Base game fantastic, extras obnoxious
by KitKat A on 2018/06/29 23:34
I’ve been playing WWF for years and I used to love it. It’s the first thing I play when I wake up and I usually play it several more times throughout the day. Lately there have been so many features I am unable to opt out of that I’m seriously contemplating leaving this app altogether. I was uncomfortable with features that essentially let you pay to cheat (Hindsight, Word Radar, Swap+) knowing that even if I don’t use them, my friends had that access and I’d never know. Then I would open the app just to have a gift box given to me I couldn’t opt out of so I could get more cheats or coins (usually used to buy cheats). Then they couldn’t handle me actually finishing my turns and leaving the app so just this week they started throwing me into a “solo game“ against a bot as soon as I’ve finished my last turn with my real friends. I’ve resigned all these games, but I’m frustrated that I have to. I paid for the ad-free version so I wouldn’t be harassed. I would like this game so much more if I had the option to reject cheats, gift boxes and unwanted solo games. I want to go back to loving this app more than I hate it.
Glitches galore
by Chelsjbb on 2017/12/06 16:28
I updated my iPhone to the new iOS and it made me get the newer version of words. At first I was excited because the old version was starting to get glitchy. I would get notifications saying it was my turn but when I went into the game it was saying that it was still my opponents turn. Now with the new app I have this glitch ALL the time. I’ve had to delete it and re download four times in a week so it would recognize it’s my turn. On top of that when I do re download the app, I have trouble logging into Facebook with it. Bringing me in circles saying it has trouble logging in and to try again. Then when I can manage to get past those two speed bumps and finish a game, it won’t let me rematch. I get an “oops something went wrong try again”. Even if I just try to start a fresh game with the same opponent I get that error message. Last but probably not least, the annoying adds they play in between games will have sound even when all my sound is clearly turned off. I’m trying to play to fall asleep and it wakes up the person in bed next to me with the loud ads that aren’t even supposed to have sound to begin with. Super frustrated with this app. Really hope it gets fixed soon or I’m going back to scrabble.
Free dating app?
by T-Town Dragon on 2019/08/12 13:48
Are you aware people are trying to use this app as a free dating site? It’s so infuriating! I enjoy playing the scrabble type game - If I wanted to find a date, I’d be on a dating app - In order to achieve the daily/weekly goals I accept challenges from other players. However, some of these players only want ‘to get to know me’, or want me chat with them on another app. When I don’t give them personal information, or agree to download that app, they stop playing. Now, I have to wait 12 days for them to ‘time out’ or I can decline the game and I take the ‘loss’. I like that I can mute the chat. I just wish there was a way to get them off my ‘waiting for their move’ list. Apparently, I can only have X number of games going. Therefore, I can’t start a game with someone I know because these people haven’t timed out yet. Please decrease the length of time it takes for a player to ‘time out’ or add a ‘troll’ button to end the game (with someone trolling for information) without penalizing the person being trolled. Then if said person gets marked as a ‘troll’ X number of times their account gets closed. They’re not really playing the game anyway (always playing 2-3 letter words).
