Changes
by tedsrootbeer on 2021/03/08 03:50
Lately seems like you’re changing game such as play again after winning game. Sometimes I press to play friends again and end up with not one new game but 3 to 5 new games and I have to resign to get back to one game . Resigning a game counts against me. It’s annoying also apparently all The nicknames are taken, also I’m usually patient with the ads but lately there have been ads that will not go away, clicking the x takes you to the App Store and I end up having to reboot the game and game freezes up . I have to reboot getting annoying
Let me turn off random game requests!
by genavin on 2021/03/08 03:18
I love playing this with my friends, but when I get 20+ game requests a day from obvious fake profiles, it makes me not want to play. It’s a great game that is seriously marred by online creepers that you can’t avoid. Gross. Please fix
Um please fix
by dashy fans on 2021/03/08 02:19
This is a great game to pass time but I’m only here to report a bug the smileys are not working idk why so please fix
Words with friends 2: 2 many glitches
by WW2-frustrated on 2021/03/08 01:06
I love this game and have been playing for many years. Unfortunately, the glitches have become way too frequent and distracting. Videos don’t load, sometimes games don’t load. Almost ready to give up.
Word Strength gone
by MCM69 on 2021/03/08 00:50
Hate the update with the word strength gone and now requiring you to watch a video to get it back for 2 hours. What a stupid change.
Ugh
by Hugs4Love on 2021/03/08 00:49
Ughhhh why is that with every update something within the game goes wrong? Sometimes the game freezes. I don’t like the new design of the game, plus the watch ads for extra coins is no longer working either... plus I also sometimes don’t get alerts to the the games when it’s my turn. Just fixxxxx it please!
See Who Won
by SoliGal on 2021/03/07 22:57
Please stop forcing us to “see who one”, especially if it’s me. We know who won! Just another annoying step added to what was once a simple game. If I’m playing on two devices, I have to do it on both. On top of the kiddie style goals and rewards, I’m ready to pack it in. Sometimes it pays to KISS - keep it simple stupid!
Sorry
by usta play scrabble on 2021/03/07 21:12
I’m so sorry you took our emojis from where we send our moves. Sending an emoji with A play added fun to my score. It added A way to trash talk. I would like to see some 2, letter C words and more 2 letter V words.
Deleted under 15 minutes
by shiftlock on 2021/03/07 20:33
What a horrible user experience. Two of us tried to connect to play online and the game kept forcing us to auto-match with random players. We were trying to play together not with randos on the internet. Every single screen had a pop up that you couldn’t dismiss about Hints and Rewards and Challenges and Solos and on and on. The only thing we learned was how to dismiss the automatic games we kept getting assigned. You have to go to “more” then “resign” then WAIT for the X close because otherwise you only get the option to Rematch... Rematch the SAME rando you literally just dismissed. Just. Horrible.
Too many interruptions- awful
by HealthSeeker66 on 2021/03/07 20:33
I just downloaded this and tried to play...my experience was awful. So many interruptions asking me to try this and that. . they made game play impossible. And no, I will not even consider purchasing the paid version after this experience. Horrible. Your marketing strategy is like shooting yourself in the foot.
Problems
by Bluewave2.2 on 2021/03/07 16:57
Serious problems with game last 10 days or so. Numerous complaints on FB. So far my game ok but lost my coin swaps. Game way too ‘busy’ now. 😡😡😡
Angery
by A kid whos also a squid on 2021/03/07 16:56
Too many stupid notifications just let me play the game my gosh
Still crashing during timed solo challenges
by Apple fan :) on 2021/03/07 16:49
So much to like but just about given up due to the constant crashing.
Good but lacking in a few areas
by Mostudly on 2021/03/07 16:21
If you like scrabble, you’ll like this. However, a few things are missing. They no longer have offline play. You used to be able to “pass and play” on your own phone with someone. That option is removed. Also, solo play against the CPU is too gimmicky. You have to wait hours and hours in between games, and can’t just play scrabble. They use the waiting time to force in app purchases, but if they gave a 1 time purchase option to unlock untimed CPU play, and made it full length games, that would be much much better.
Great challenging games
by margiemomnana on 2021/03/07 15:42
Great game but I’d like it better if I could just play with friends and not have the imaginary friends or at least have a way I can eliminate the clutter from my screen. Would also prefer to use “real” words instead of what sounds like grunts and groans or words that are WWF words... but not real words.
The newest update has taken my ability to play away!
by jory36 on 2021/03/07 15:16
I have tried to totally delete the game and reinstall but nothing is working! Many friends keep asking why they can’t reach me using Facebook page. Please help
I Enjoy Game, BUT
by tsswas on 2021/03/07 15:02
The dictionary, the acceptance of words and not, should be much better. It’s very frustrating when words that can not be found in the dictionary are accepted and words that are obviously words used and accepted every day are not.
I just want to play with friends
by RadioJeff on 2021/03/07 14:37
This game used to be fun. Now it’s bloated with ads and contests and distractions. It’s hard to even find the game I’m playing with my friend in the app. What’s worse is that the notifications are non stop. I tried turning them all off except for notifications that it’s my turn in a game I’M ACTUALLY PLAYING and I still just get notifications each day about someone I don’t know wanting to play with me. No way to stop those apparently. Enough already. There are other ways to play word games with friends that aren’t trying to be in-your-face all the time.
Advertising glitch
by Golf1660 on 2021/03/07 14:33
I don’t mind the advertisements, but the door dash one constantly won’t let me “x” out of it once it is finished- very frustrating!
Chat
by CArocketmail on 2021/03/07 13:53
Can you change the blue screen with white letters to something easier for your older players to see? The blue/white is difficult to read if you have vision problems. Maybe give three choices of color with the white letters?
Words with friends
by :::;;;;;;;;; on 2021/03/07 13:27
They have added a game called rivals. 80% of the time it freezes.
Fun, but...
by 4532 you on 2021/03/07 12:24
I too have been playing this game for several years. It’s a great distraction, has an edge of competition and I almost feel like I know my frequent “friends “. My only problem- and to me it’s a big one- is that the game freezes so much more now. It gets hung up on black screens after adds, etc. The only way I have found after waiting several minutes, is to delete the app. Then download it again. The last time, I lost all my previous points, friends, etc... even after typing in the friends name. It seems there are two different servers? or something that the entire playing community is not accessible or something. It’s too bad- we were in the middle of a 20+ game streak. Not fun to be thrown into “ beginners pile” or other server. Thanks for allowing feedback
After 10 years, considering deleting
by FoghornJ on 2021/03/07 08:47
My profile shows I’ve been playing since 2011. The recent addition of Rivals is really frustrating to the point I’m considering deleting the app. It’s constantly glitching whether it’s not adding stars, continuously starting the opponents countdown timer over, or just completely crashing the app and taking me back to the Home Screen. Support team will just reset my account and say to troubleshoot and make sure everything on my device has been updated. I purchased the game years ago because I play so often but thinking it’s time to start looking for alternative scrabble type games.
Great game
by AvidFan55 on 2021/03/07 08:25
Really love this game a lot. Not happy about the revisions in the latest upgrade though. The game layout was perfect before, now, not so much. The fonts and the board are more difficult to see and read, as is the tile bag. All the new bells and whistles that have been added and all of the ads, really slow down the game. Used to play a lot more, but this is not possible now, as everything takes so much longer. This game was so intuitively ingenious before. Why mess with a really good thing? Sad that it’s so slow now, you have to wait 10 minutes to even open a game with Wordmasters. This is a great game, please fix these things.
Lame game
by pavalava on 2021/03/07 06:43
Fake words, too many ads. This is becoming garbage. Get a life , nobody should have to suffer watching an ad after every single move you Jews!
Enjoy the game but
by socaldonnan on 2021/03/07 05:31
I’ve been enjoying this game for a number of years but I just don’t understand why nonsense words are allowed to be used and legitimate words not so. Is there a way to send the words not accepted to the game’s help desk for consideration?
Problems
by crazyched on 2021/03/07 04:25
For the third time in 5 weeks the game has locked up & prevented play for myself & all r the people playing with me! There is a list in prior notes!! Totally frozen- can play 5 games and they stay the same after 3 force close phone reboot please help!!!
Scammers
by hatescammer1 on 2021/03/07 03:34
I love the game but really get a charge out of hearing the sob stories that the scammers use. They are usually widowers with children and most work on oil rigs. They want you for their friend, ask you to join hangout or ask for email address. Then they ask for ‘steam’ cards or some other form of money. Lowlifes! I tell them so with a few more choice words, report them and then block them
Doesn’t work
by Linds lu on 2021/03/07 03:14
Ive been playing this game for years. I got a new phone. Non of the data transferred. No stars no previous games. I paid for this game. Now I have ads. No word strength. Can’t access settings. I’m done
The game isn’t working
by mck9223! on 2021/03/07 02:49
It’s been a week and I have not been able to start or receive a game.
Getting worse overtime
by k7185 on 2021/03/07 02:15
Takes too long to load. Too many side/ sub games awards and rewards. Time to improve the letter bag, dictionary and loose the extra. STUFF.
Loses my games
by ydoJ22357818 on 2021/03/07 02:14
It lost about 50% of my games a couple of weeks ago. It fixed it finally after 4-5 days. Guess what....it has lost the same ones again! BIG SHOCKER! I used to love this game....not so much NOW!
I love ❣️ your words with friends!
by bnme... on 2021/03/07 01:19
Fun times and love using all my tiles...
If only there were alternatives
by LTR2 on 2021/03/07 01:10
Graphics and everything else centered around selling us things. I am not the audience. I wish there were an alternative scrabble.
In Rivals , a snag
by TromboneSue on 2021/03/07 00:59
The Rivals portion has now caused me three stopped games. The rival never makes a play and the game is frozen. If I resign, I get a loss and no reward and the rival gets all the stars. Big deal, maybe not, but are these people doing it on purpose? It’s a bummer, should be a penalty for them if they try this scheme. If it’s on your end, please fix.
Good game
by Mrs Wv golfer on 2021/03/07 00:47
Good
Shelly’s Review
by Shellydav on 2021/03/06 23:59
I love playing the game with my friends and loved ones.
Frustrated!
by richlizzy on 2021/03/06 21:27
I have played Words With Friends for years and it is/was my favorite pastime. However, since purchasing the iPhone 12 I am unable to circumvent the lengthy, annoying, time consuming ads I am constantly assaulted with and I will probably stop playing as a result. I do not wish to pay an additional fee to play without ads, I’ve already paid enough for the phone and continue to pay for monthly service. I understand that advertising is how money is made, but this is absolute overkill!!!
A great game degraded by constant demands for money
by jstanley0 on 2021/03/06 21:02
I bought out of ads years ago so I don’t see videos after making plays and such. But the game constantly begs for money, sending push notifications about “premium rewards” or whatever. Seriously, just shut up and let me play the game I bought.
Can’t play at all after recent update?
by LBMX13 on 2021/03/06 20:17
I have been playing this game for months, especially during COVID19. Now, it locks up and I can’t play at all after the recent security updates. Can’t find a human and none of the recommended “fixes” helped, this is sooo sad ! I wonder how many others are locked out? I can access the game, can see the screens, place tiles, but then nothing.
Too Many Ads!!
by LunaSyd:) on 2021/03/06 19:15
I love playing with my friends and completing challenges and goals but this app has WAY too many ads! You have to watch an ad after every turn, and they are trick ads that take you to the App Store and your internet browser with fake “close” buttons.
Commercials!
by Meliann55 on 2021/03/06 17:57
Too many!
The COACH
by Coach Hewitt on 2021/03/06 17:47
Meet a lot of nice women on WWF. Some are fake? But the games are Super. GOOD JOB WWF! 😉
No ad play would be nice
by scrabbletx on 2021/03/06 17:44
Great app. Would like a paid app to avoid the advertisements that interrupt play.
So Annoying
by Squeakybrat on 2021/03/06 16:36
The words you accept and don’t accept, your silly games, the cluelessness of your definitions, to name just a few.
Doesn’t work on cellular connection: update
by Funkytut on 2021/03/06 16:18
This may have been an issue with an unconfigured VPN. When I discovered it and turned it off, the problem went away. (My normal VPN does not cause issues, but this one was installed without my knowledge.) Iphone12, latest iOS, reinstall didn’t work The app states that a network connection is required to work. I try googling the issue on the 5G network that my phone is on and there are no relevant articles. I was also able to delete and reinstall the app on that “nonworking” network. I think, but am not sure, that it might work on LTE. To simulate the problem at home, I turned off WiFi and observed that I had LTE. I was able to play one move before being told I needed a network. At that time, I observed that my phone had switched to 5G.
Oops
by 2Qts4me on 2021/03/06 16:09
Several times I will lose points because it will say oops something went wrong and also now I can’t play the solo game because it’s grinding away—☹️
Too many issues!
by Stef Eff on 2021/03/06 15:25
I’m an avid word game player and I used to LOVE the game! But now? NO! I am SO SICK of all the issues this game app is having! The issues happen repeatedly in all game types within this app! Instead of adding new game modes and features, how about fixing the repetitive issues with the existing ones?! In the middle of Word Rival matches, it won’t let me play my rounds when it’s my turn. Similar issues have happened in Duels. Also in Duels, I’ve actually started a NEW round with a NEW opponent, but letters and plays from the previous opponent are on the board! And in Lightning matches? It’s the worst! I’ve gotten kicked out in the beginning of matches, mid-match, at the end of matches when the word play is over because a team reached 750 and it’s just time to view the point breakdown! I’ve had new matches begin after an ad has played, and then it boots me out, takes me back to the end of the stupid ad, and then I have to go back in and try to re-join the team or get put into an entirely new game! And has even kicked me out before of new rounds and put me BACK in previous Lightning matches with previous word plays still on the screen! And the dumb stickers?! What self-respecting, word game maven cares about that?! Leave that foolishness to apps like Facebook and Snapchat! FIX THE ISSUES! PLEASE!
Free word strength?
by gracie32218 on 2021/03/06 15:04
Why is there no longer free word strength? Another change that is irritating.
Rewards
by fcgej on 2021/03/06 15:02
I don’t like the new goal-rewards system.
Solo challenge
by Jc2322 on 2021/03/06 15:01
I really like playing words with friends. Love solo challenge..but mine locked up and there is no way to contact anyone to “unlock” and move it along. ( just keeps saying processing) Help! I would also like to be able to trade some of the look back and other buttons ( spy glass and eyeglasses) for swap, which I primarily use. You are keeping the game very interesting, thank you!
Incorrect words
by Bill659 on 2021/03/06 14:20
Too many incorrect words. Some proper nouns are allowed, but others are not. Many discrepancies in what is an acceptable word. Tell us how to problems.
Fun Game
by Chezy T 1023 on 2021/03/06 13:07
Lots of fun. Keeps you busy, and thinking
I need help but no contact info?
by KessMeh on 2021/03/06 07:37
My winter wonderland timer keeps resetting or freezing and now I’ve lost out on time to earn prizes?? It went from 15 minutes left until new rewards to 23 hours??? I’ve reset my phone and the app. I spent a lot of time trying to get far so now what I just have to lose out??
Solo Challenge Froze
by LSioux4 on 2021/03/06 05:51
For some reason current solo challenge is still running even though I deleted the app from my screen. The App Store says that the game is “open” — but only so in the App Store. Please fix.
Rewards
by Kenswords on 2021/03/06 03:54
What happened to all the smiley face stickers.? They just suddenly disappeared from my game.
Way too many commercials!!!!
by Dunby on 2021/03/06 03:22
It is killing my battery- deleting it! Tried it again- even more commercials and some with no way to exit!!!!! Done never again
Words with friends 2
by lkoch234 on 2021/03/06 03:16
After the wwf2 update, I can’t figure out how to synchronize my iPhone with my iPad. I’ve deleted and installed a few times to make sure running same version on both devices. Everything looks right but I play my opponents and none play back on both devices.
Glitches
by Lori12_61 on 2021/03/06 02:37
This is one of my all time favorite games and I have been playing for many many years. But the most frustrating thing about playing this game are the glitches and certain features to get you to engage with past players. I would like got them to remove that feature. I will say after much navigation to contact them thru the game they will reply and try to fix the problems. It’s a great game, and you get to chat with opponents from all around the world. I like that. Overall it’s enjoyable
Notifications
by SurferDude47 on 2021/03/06 02:05
Need to be able to turn off garbage notifications. I just want to know when it’s my turn.
Annoyed
by NiNi H. on 2021/03/06 01:04
Do not wast your money in the game. I’ve make two purchases and I haven’t gotten my reward from level 11 despite me making it to level 19. And I’ve unlocked all 45 tiers and still didn’t get my 20 bonus boxes as stated. Just ANNOYING! Unable to update my email address.
Best online game ever!
by Chezum on 2021/03/06 00:51
Love this game
Annoying ads
by fhhfjfjfbb on 2021/03/06 00:03
Keep collecting gold coins but for what? The ads in between each game are annoying. Some days I just don’t want to deal with them and I won’t play. No way am I spending $9 a month to go ad free.
My stickers disappeared! What happened? ☹️
by Merrilln on 2021/03/05 23:41
I have been playing a long time. I went to play today and all of a sudden the majority of of my stickers are gone.
Red circles
by argee 727 on 2021/03/05 23:11
I just want to play scrabble. I don’t want to play any of your side games and I don’t wanna be told that I have this reward or that reward. And I want that white number in the red circle to go away
Best Game Ever
by KittenC 🐱 on 2021/03/05 22:54
I love this game it is one of my favorite games also because I can play with my Grammy and it is really fun.
Too much garbage
by Dianejenn on 2021/03/05 22:36
One of my favorite apps has filled the experience with way too many auto initiated games, rewards have gone downhill, aggravating goal messages, etc., which has led to a very frustrating experience. I want to play scrabble. Please cut back on all the extra traps before my friends and I drop the app.
Ad free version is gone
by KRL123456789 on 2021/03/05 21:56
I have been playing Words for many years and now apparently with your latest update you dropped me. I am unable to load the version that shows my progress and my friends. When I try to load Words 2, two words apps load at the same time and I end up with the ad version and a new screen name and none of my friends.
Awesome and addictive!!
by Zezobebo on 2021/03/05 21:39
Love this version and have been playing forever. I wish there was a way to accumulate more points though.
Ads are ridiculous
by so gggvyyfcdd on 2021/03/05 21:00
After every move is an Ad so incredibly annoying. Makes me sick of playing quickly
Latest updates take forever to load
by blubopper on 2021/03/05 20:38
They also sometimes crash on loading. I’ve been playing a long time, and watched the game gain incomprehensible features and bells and whistles, to the detriment of the experience of simply playing the game. And waiting for it to open has gotten ridiculous. I have a strong phone with 64 gigs running the latest iOS; it’s not my phone.
As free
by User.3 on 2021/03/05 20:23
I wish it was ad free. It so annoying when you aren’t interested in the ads.

Used to be good
by JJ2wp on 2021/03/05 18:09
I have been playing for 10 years. Used to be a good app but all the glitches and new features are overwhelming and frustrating. It’s too much. The app can barely run because it’s so bogged down with junk. Please return to simplicity.

by Jasan4512 on 2021/03/05 17:27
Love this app it’s a great app for passing time.
Stickers
by Teneybro on 2021/03/05 16:18
Please do not waste my time with those stupid stickers! Remove them from the game board!
Ads with sound are unacceptable.
by Davebreak on 2021/03/05 15:53
Love playing this. The ads are obtrusive and incessant. Which would be acceptable EXCEPT SOME ADS RUN WITH SOUND. Choosing no sound or flipping the switch on my phone does nothing. Only turning down the volume works. This is unacceptable as I often play with others around and forget to set my volume to off. Looking for a substitute.
Too many intrusive ads
by dorejegoin on 2021/03/05 15:53
I have played words with friends off and on for several years and am considering quitting because of the ads that refuse to go away. (Example is Candy Crush refuses to disappear and noise is overbearing) I don’t need the aggravation!
Leda
by Pudding and tame on 2021/03/05 15:52
THIS GAME IS UNREAL, SO MANY ADS AFTER EVERY SINGLE WORD YOU PLAY SO IT RUNS YOUR BATTERY DOWN FAST. NO I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS GAME. SINCE THE NEW “UPDATE “ I HAVE HAD SO MANY PROBLEMS AND NOT ONLY DEALING WITH ADS NOW I AM DEALING WITH POP-UPS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE IF PLAYING ASKING ME IF I WANT TO BUY SWAP OR WORD RADAR OR ANYTHING ELSE. Updated wwfs and like all the other updates it doesn’t work or help the players. Just a big mess. Now we get to go days and days not being able to play. No I would not recommend this game.
Ad and tip issues
by blaizinpanda19 on 2021/03/05 15:50
After each turn you gave to watch an add. It also randomly tells you tips about the game which are annoying being you must view the tips for 3-5 seconds before being able to close the tips out. Also the ad-free version is 9.99 a month.....
Words With Friends

Words with Friends
by Hor5e sense on 2021/03/05 14:56
Enjoy playing these games each morning with my coffee just wish there was a way to stop those who are trying to take advantage of players by starting up a conversation with hopes of scamming them.
Ending the game

I recently added your App and for the most part I enjoy it. However, besides accepting words you do not find in any dictionary, the game has a fatal flaw. When you come down to the end, having just a few letters left in your possession, the “game” suddenly declares a winner, despite how close the match is. This is acceptable when the match is not very competitive but it should not happen when score is reasonably close. Even when you just have a few letters left, you can score well. The “game” can’t read your mind as to what word(s) you are going to make. Why play the game if it is going to end prematurely. Hope you can address this. Thanks.
Convincing me to switch to Scrabble app
by Memyself Andeye on 2021/03/05 13:49
What is up with the Duels game? Says I have three games and I am lucky to get one without the opponent bailing. Doesn’t refresh for new matches in two hours.
Get over yourselves
by Dreamquilt on 2021/03/05 13:28
I have been playing this game for eight years. It has gone from fun to frustration. Click responses are slow, defaults to seldom used pages within the site make no sense, requests to join on Facebook are annoying. Get a clue.
Great game, ads won’t let you X
by Court8497 on 2021/03/05 10:33
I play this game all the time snd really enjoy it. I know ads are a necessity to keep it free snd I don’t mind that. The thing that drives me crazy is that so often the X is so tiny that when I try to click it, it just brings up the ad over and over until I just get irritated snd close the app entirely.
The adds are ridiculous
by 19hannah81 on 2021/03/05 07:14
I’ve been playing off and on for years I enjoy the game and mini games but the adds are beyond annoying. I am glad to see that chatting is optional now. The last time I deleted the game was because of people asking for money or inappropriate pics. You used to be able to pay a okie time fee to remove adds but now they want you to pay monthly. Guessing I won’t be on it much longer.
Quick duels
by Sbmabc on 2021/03/05 05:22
Some times my opponent is selling word(s) and getting point prior to me being in the game. Leaving me at a competitive disadvantage. Try to fix uneven or unfair beginnings to duels.

Fun play
by KeylaVar on 2021/03/05 04:25
This is a great way to learn words. I played this game for quite some years, but I did give it a break because of the ads. I didn’t reinstall the game and start playing again, however I think I’m going to go ahead and uninstall it because the ads or after each game plan for each hand that is irritating. The less the ads the more the phone. The more the ads the more annoyed

I’ve been playing nearly ten years and it’s always a different game ! Great way to interact with friends that are in another location ....whether a different city or room !
Ads
by col 25 on 2021/03/05 03:02
I’ve been enjoying this game, I paid twice ($19.98j to stop ads and while the money went through I still get ads after every play. So annoying, what did I pay for? Waaay too many ads

This app has been glitchy for months. Now my games disappear for the other players as soon as I play a word.
Fun

Lots of different challenges and not too many ads and demands for money
Enough with the gimmicks
by Oma1946 on 2021/03/04 23:42
Let’s just play the game. Other things are not fun, are a distraction and waste bandwidth Why can’t I swap tiles when there are some in the bag?
Fun but filled with ads!
by CeptNobodyAskedMe on 2021/03/04 22:33
It’s a fun app and a great way to stay connected with faraway friends. That said, there are so many ads! It’s also complicated in terms of features that are less than user friendly or intuitive. If I were in charge of the WWF world, I’d clean up the app to clear the clutter on the screen.

Trouble with the Quick Play
by Jdealy on 2021/03/04 21:59
I’ve been playing WWF for many years and generally love it! I really do enjoy the new quick play events, but over the past couple days, I play one game and try to play another one and the game quits and gives me whatever score I got on the first game and I lose my “ticket” to play. Please fix this! Thank you!
I have been playing words with friends years!
by Sillicacher on 2020/11/14 17:13
I believe I started playing in 2010 so I have been playing for a decade. If I am wrong it would be only by a year. First 8 years I played everyday multiple times a day. It was nothing for me to have 40 games going at a time. I love playing WWF but I wish that some of the power ups were able to be chosen not just won or given. There are TWO I so rarely use that I have +99 in both. I do find the swap feature and play very helpful when my letter pile is so bad I can’t make any word. It would be great if we could chose to move over some of the hindsight and the letter placement option piles. Even if it were to cost 20 of these to get 5 of the swap and play power ups. I also find some of the added features for play kinda annoying but I understand that they are needed to keep things going and interest high. My interest lies with the original game features and playing the word master. Given all the new features I still play and will continue to do so. I do not play the volume I used to but that is because I am heavily involved in designing mandalas and similar designs for people to color. I keep my games going so that I can keep my, one of the early to original players position. I will always play this game however my points and positions are really reduced this game provides mental stimulation and vocabulary growth. Thanks for keeping it going all these years and into the future.
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?
Christine Harris’ words with friends 2 review
by fillinger52 on 2021/03/02 17:33
I enjoy most aspects of the game such as the variety of events, the ability to earn points, stars, etc, and the competition. I don’t enjoy the glitches from time to time that not even updating the app improves. These are things like taking away games when playing duels, not being able to find the quick start games with just using the plus button, not being able to play a game in rivers as it never comes up oh and who cares about the back button. I love free trades and all the plays left especially at the end of the game but the best move is not always the best move although it is 90% of the time so well worth it. What I still dislike about it the most are all the men who are trying to use a free game app as a dating service, they are annoying, constantly trying to chat when you want to play and sometimes rude. They are predictable in that they are always widows, have one child-usually a girl, and either work in over seas oil rigs or in the military. I have heard from some of the ladies that they have been asked for money and or preloaded cards. Keep adding new ways to earn points and take off some. With duels who needs the the old timed games. Also, even though I contact you with issues I get no feedback or corrections. I’ve had the same number of original words for over eight years and it never changes. And there are a couple other things not even worth mentioning.
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.
Overwhelming
by DelBeesu on 2020/12/29 23:18
There is waaaaaay too much going on in this app. When you open it up, you are bombarded with messages about treasure hunts and mini games and contests, ads, and then when you finally get to the main menu there are always like 3 games that you didn’t agree to play with random strangers that you have to actively go into to tell it to decline in order to remove it. Underneath that there are suggestions for random strangers for you to play. There have been times where I missed that it was my turn in the one game I’m playing for over a day because there’s so much going on that I just couldn’t see our game in the menu and see that it was my turn. Then there are “tips” where the app wants you to know about a feature. Sometimes it’s hints, or a new thing that you can earn points for for whatever, but they are impossible to exit out of without agreeing to do the thing, which is really obnoxious. There have also been times where I’ve been forced to go into some new section of the app that I’m not interested and couldn’t figure out how to get back to the main screen, and has to just close the app and reopen it. This has got to be one of the most overwhelming, obnoxious apps I’ve ever used. The only reason I didn’t delete it immediately is because my friend who I never get to see really wanted to play scrabble, and we used to play in this app when it was new and less insane. I may delete it after this game though.
Poorly developed Scrabble
by Unwrittn on 2020/02/12 21:34
I love Scrabble. But the design and execution of this app is just sad. First, it says ‘Words with Friends’, meaning the primary purpose is to play with people you know. But unless they are dedicated to the game, you could wait hours or even days for the other person to take their turn. If you really want to play, but you’re tired of waiting for a friend to check in, you could hit up a complete stranger. I’ve done this a few times only to be quizzed on my personal life, political and religious beliefs, and my love life. Apparently, this game attracts very lonely people who would rather chat than play, and who also think a game app is an appropriate place to find a companion. So again, I gave up on that avenue of play. What’s left? Solo Challenges! A chance to play against the computer at the rate of one game every 8 hours. Lame! And the computer does not stick to English, or a preferred language, or any language at all for that matter. It makes up words! I just played an entire game again “Long Nose Neil” and not a single word he played was a valid English word! Several were not real words and even the computer had no definition for them; others were in other languages (Hebrew, French, and Spanish). And as if that wasn’t annoying enough, it’s not even a real game. You have “5 moves(words)” in which to out-score the computer. I gave it 2 stars for being mildly entertaining, but it’s a far cry from what real Scrabble lovers would expect.
Update freezes
by Babs Toyfish on 2020/09/17 03:08
Update: Zynga seems bent on getting rid of all their adult users. The app gets progressively, aggressively stupider with every update. It’s more geared toward two-year-olds all the time. Maybe I’m being paranoid, but sometimes I suspect that they built that freeze (mentioned below) in on purpose to get you to always update in hopes the new version will fix it, because with every update a new annoying popup feature for children comes along, or you’re now charged for things that used to be free. I normally avoid updates because of things like this, but that freeze has got me trying each new one that comes along. They’re building in new bugs all the time seems. First it was not being able to use voice to text in chat more than once. Then it was not being able to use the cursor in the chat box. It’s like a new bug every time. One would think that a $7 billion company could do better on quality control. And every new feature feels like they’re dumbing the app down to appeal to children because children are easier to bilk money out of. I’m an advanced player who’s been playing this app a lot since 2011. It feels like they’re trying to push people like me out with all of this baby stuff. ———- App now freezes after every play. What’s up zynga? Been playing this game almost a decade now and never had a problem with the app. This makes 2 updates progressively worse than the last.
Bad design and each update brings new problems.
by Tabletha on 2020/09/19 04:27
I received a developer response saying to contact them directly. As stated in this review, I had already contacted directly. They either did not feel they have a problem, or they did not care to share with tech people that this seems to be a glitch within the game. They said to do all the things they usually say. As stated below, they were all already done. Won’t waste more time getting in touch with them, when they do not believe there is ever anything wrong. Once again, Word Wheel does not work. The screen goes solid dark blue, just like right before the profile slides put from the right side. The profile, inventory, achievements etc., when selected, slide out from the right side, overlaying a full dark blue screen. The Word Wheel game just turns into a completely dark blue screen, with no functionality. Have to close the app and reopen it, because it does not even have a way to x it out. Just dead blue screen. Have done two updates and nothing changes. ________________ This time it’s Word Wheel does not work. Try to play and get blank blue screen. I DO have the latest update. I DID delete and reinstall. I DID sign out and in again. I DID contact customer service and they said they refreshed from their end. Two cycles of Word Wheel games and they still will not play. and I do not want another refresh, because that invariably causes something else. Isn’t anyone else having this problem? Please fix.
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.
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.
Fun game, but full of scammers
by jokael2 on 2020/08/22 18:48
There has to be some way to vet out these scammers who begin unsolicited conversations with women. They are relentless and annoying, and they have the same script. I don’t believe most of them are native English speakers based on their canned conversations and poor game-playing. After I accepted several challenges (I hoped they were due to being ‘smart matched’ with someone), 3 different men all started similar conversations with me ‘hello dear’ or using my name in another one. Then in 2 of them it led almost immediately to ‘where are you from’ and in one straight to ‘so, are you married?’ In one where I didn’t answer his repeated ‘hellos’, he finally said ‘so you don’t chat?’ I answered that and told him hello, but I was leery of chatting due to being asked those questions. He said he understood. Then next question was ‘so, where are you from?’ That’s when I looked up words with friends trolls, and found that this is a thing where ppl have actually been scammed. I don’t know what the answer is except to never say yes to a game or maybe just never open conversations with people I don’t know, but in the past I was able to say ‘good game’ or ‘nice word’ without worrying someone was going to try to solicit money from me. I love the game itself, so this stinks.
Don’t waste money on coins.
by zerokool23 on 2021/02/08 22:05
I’ve been playing since 2011 and noticed some things along the way. I’m finally irked enough to write a review. First off, most apps on here have a sole purpose and that is to make money for the developer and it seems to me like they use clever algorithms in order to achieve this with WWF. I always end up with all consonants or all vowels and then use a free swap that I’ve earned (you can purchase them as well) and then get more of the same essentially wasting your free swap. You might say that can happen in real life, but if you’ve played long enough you can almost predict it. I also know there are some games that I will statistically have no chance to win when all of the high value tiles go to your opponent. Again, just a pattern I’ve notice. I’ve also noticed that in the tile bag they always try to keep the consonants and vowels fairly even so I know it’s not random. Then in Quick Play where you need to have a ticket to play I would get glitches that to me seem like they are on purpose. For instance I started a game and could see my opponent already racking up points before the screen finished loading my screen to play. Sometimes I would use a ticket and it would take me back to the beginning screen and I would lose my ticket. I refuse to spend money on this app because I know it’s like playing Vegas. The odds are never in your favor. I still play it, but just know you won’t have a chance it certain games.
Apple Pencil with iOS14 Update
by Mimidddddvvvvvv123123123 on 2020/09/18 15:47
I always play Words with Friends 2 with my Apple Pencil on my iPad. I use it to scroll through the game and move tiles. However, With the new update to iOS 14, the app will not allow me to use the pencil to grab tiles once I open a game. Instead, now the pencil just scribbles all over the game board and there is no option to turn this off. I don’t need to scribble on a scrabble game board, it’s not a coloring page. It is pointless. So far, all other apps I’ve opened work fine with the pencil. Please fix to still allow the pencil to also be used to play the game by scrolling and grabbing tiles, not just as a drawing tool. Other issues I have is if you use a Word Radar and then leave that board, when you return the game closes the “radar” and then makes you “buy” another radar. They didn’t use to do this and it seems petty. Also, I like that that they allow you to change the game tile within each individual game. However, in one of my games it keeps reverting to this one game tile that I hate. Even though I have changed both my universal default tile and the individual game tile, every time I open the individual game it reverts back to this other tile that I can’t stand. It is annoying. I love WWF but constant little glitches happen enough to where I felt I needed to say something here.
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.
Solo challenge
by Blondah on 2021/01/17 18:09
I normally do quite well in solo challenge. It used to be my favorite game in Words with Friends. However,The last two times I’ve gotten to the last character to play to end the challenge for the last box, it’s cost all the coins I’ve earned from watching ads before I even start. When I buy the swap, I get even worse letters than I had before. This particular game with “Gaia” has been the worst. Gaia has all the best letters each hand, and even if I swap each hand, I get the same letters I just had or worse! Once I got all vowels! I’ve played her at least 7 times! Ridiculous! I’m not going to play this portion of the game again. It’s a shame because I looked forward to playing the solo challenge each day. I’ll stick to the basic part of playing with “friends.” Other than that, it’s a good game I enjoy. It also seems we are watching more ads and earning less coin than before in the last version. One other thing: is this a dating app? I’m using the moniker “I Don’t Chat” for my name, and I’m still getting toms of men daily asking me to play, then attempting to chat. “Hi”, “Hi Dear!” “Where are you from?” Apparently they can’t read since I refuse to chat! Please do something about this! Looking at reviews here I see this is a constant problem for other women as well. Ugh! Annoying to say the least!
Great game, but room to improve
by ikimasu1 on 2021/03/02 01:09
This is a fun game that I have enjoyed for about 10 years, and there have been some interesting improvements & changes along the way. Some changes are good, some not so much. Most of the bad comes from the need to make money through IAPs instead of offering a subscription, though I do feel they’ve mitigated some of this with recent changes. I would still prefer a subscription to IAPs or ads. That said, the new mini-game “Word Rivals” is a great addition, but there are two big flaws. First, when you’re losing and the last turn goes to your opponent, the game should end automatically. It’s frustrating to have to wait for the other player to make a pointless move, especially when they make you wait the full 50 seconds. Secondly, there is a huge disadvantage to go first in this game. One potential solution is to start the game with one random word already on the board. This would change the strategy every game, regardless of who goes first. I also think it would be better if each player is guaranteed two high-point tiles (ie always start with 2). If the other player gets them all, it’s virtually impossible to win unless they don’t know how to play. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
“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!
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 & HATE WWF2

Great game improvement over regular WWF ,more fun, interesting and challenging. Buggy! Buggy! Buggy! Buggy‼️ I play daily both on my iPhone and iPad. When I started playing WWF2, there were a few incidents per month, where I had to re-boot my iPhone10. Whenever they come out with a new update, the game will crash consistently 2-4 x’s per week prior; progressively worsening to daily until you update. Then crashing is less, but still somewhat buggy after. I updated to the Winter Wonderland last week on my iPad. The first day it crashed completely and would not clear with re-booting,(times 6). I had to completely re-install the game and lost all my stored credits, history and advancements. Understandably, I have been dragging my feet about updating my iphone10 to this Winter Wonderland version, yet the game crashes several times daily and yesterday I was cheated out of 18 coins from the watch the ads binge they offer you when you claim the daily bonus! There is no avenue to contact them to report problems. Most of the problems occur when the ads play, the screen can freeze, turn dark, or the logo just spins. Hint, hint, ever pushing for you to pay for the no-ad upgrade which is expensive.
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!
Delays and catfish
by StephanieS1227 on 2020/09/07 17:04
I play this game often and I enjoy it, but I have been noticing that when I play the lightning rounds with groups, I get an overwhelming amount of men sending me 1:1 games. I know for certain that some of them are Nigerian catfish masquerading as U.S. servicemen and surgeons who are working for the UN and on assignment overseas. I am extremely resourceful when it comes to investigating and can say without any uncertainty that the men are catfish. If anyone from WWF ops wants to discuss, I would be happy to reveal my sources. Also, when I play QuickPlay, my game lags - majorly. My board will still be loading and the opponent has 50 points before I can even look at my letters. Then, in between words, the board will load and load and by the time it finally does, the game is over and I have lost. Other times, it will say it’s searching for an opponent and I will close out of the game to restart and try again and a game is in progress and I’m about to lose, which wastes a turn. There are a lot of glitches and the catfishing needs to be addressed. For the time being, I have changed my photo to one of my dog to deter weirdos from sending me games. I have still received quite a few and I’m thinking I may need to be a bit of a catfish myself and change my photo to a sumo wrestler and my name to “Butch” or something of the like to play unscathed.
Good game but bugs are costly and weird strangers
by Lady11927 on 2021/01/09 05:51
The game in itself is good. I’ve been playing it for almost 10 years in and off. However, I recommend you don’t spend money on it. I recently bought the rewards pass and have missed out on getting a lot of the rewards because the app keeps bugging out and removing the pass altogether. I tried to contact support, did what they told me, and still got no fix or refund. There are a lot of glitches that cause you to have to spend coins twice. Through several updates, the issue has not been resolved. I spent money on the game because I love it but it’s just not worth the bugs. On top of that, there’s a scam issue when you play with male strangers. There are hundreds of fake profiles run by a bot. They try to talk to you excessively, hit on you, etc. They draw you in and later on ask for money. I only know all of that because I’ve read about it, but at first I had no idea why I was being hit on by creepy strange men. I don’t mind playing games with random users but there has to be some way WWF can weed out the bots.... the bots immediately resign games if you don’t continue chatting with them because they know they won’t get any scam money. Zynga pleeeeaaaassssseeeee fix these issues. They’re killing an otherwise great game.
Love to Play WWF
by Bring back the old look on 2021/02/13 16:16
I have been playing this game for many years and enjoy it immensely. I do have a bone to pick, however, with the latest change, which is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. The change that I am unhappy with concerns the Daily Word Play. It used to be very easy to access Daily Word Play as it was displayed in more than one area of the game board. The previous Points Goal for Daily Word Play was 167, and you had 4 tries to get to that score and when you did not reach it in 4 tries you could watch a video for 4 additional tries. Once you reached 167 points you received a Mystery Box. I was fine with watching a short ad for the 4 additional tries, and I always did so to complete the 167 point goal. Now the goal is 930 for a Mystery Box with unlimited tries and no ads, and the only way to access it is through the Goals box. The issue is if you want to stop before 930 points (because that score takes a bit of time to achieve) and go back to Daily Word Play later, there is no longer a way to access it again. Please fix this issue, as I am sure that other players like to put down the game and go back to Daily Word Play later when they are not playing other opponents.
The programmers don’t know the English language
by Tfeliot on 2020/08/31 00:00
It is frustrating enough playing this game because of the way they force their little rewards on you and you have to wait for those to process before you can continue playing. But worse than ever, is that I don’t think that these people are using any valid English dictionary to determine what is a word and what is not. I have an English writing degree and I can tell you that there of been multiple times when a word should have been acceptable and was not. These are words that were acceptable in the game of Scrabble, and I suggest the programmers start using Scrabble’s Dictionary or some other valid dictionary I have a feeling this is the result of programmers who have English as a second language. Very frustrating and I am considering quitting for this reason. Since I wrote the preceding words, the developer contacted me and told me that they use the Oxford English Dictionary and that they except 160,000 words. If they indeed used the Oxford English Dictionary, they would know that it has over 600,000 words in it. And they should also know that people who play word games are generally people who have a larger vocabulary than people who think there are only 160,000 words. Their response proved my point.
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!
Fun game but...
by RegNYNJ on 2020/10/19 13:42
Fun game but... improvements can be made. The game is engaging and does connect you with friends and family but there are things that bother me. Coins, etc awarded are lacking. If I spend my time on this game (on the daily word, for example, which takes a while), I should be given more than just a few meager coins. Even the word search puzzles reward you 10 coins for 12 games. Why not at least 12? Ads are constant and overwhelming. They interrupt the flow of games and waste time. There are way too many. Time is wasted in other ways. The wait in between forming words in Duals, for example, is tedious and at times costs me the game as my opponent wins while the game is stalled. Ridiculous! Time is also depleted when we are told every little coin we have won, whether it be one or two or 10. Less updates with more info would save time, battery power and interrupt us less often. Perhaps a reward section could be used so we could check. Battery power is drained too quickly when using the app and all the ads and slowdowns already mentioned contribute to that. I hope to keep playing but wish for improvements. I do enjoy the games here but the annoyances can greatly detract from them.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Needs a LOT of change
by alynxe on 2021/01/17 15:49
Honestly I love the idea behind this app, but it has been over developed. There are entirely too many things going on and all of the different menus are a complete DISASTER, even for someone who has been playing a good while. This game neede to be completely torn down to the bare minimum and reconstructed much simpler and without the ridiculous amount of extra stuff. The second problem, and honestly the most important problem is the ads. To be perfectly honest they make the game unplayable. No one wants to sit through 30 second ads after every turn. This game was supposed to make playing online scrabble much more fun, and easier, but the ads make me want to delete it and never play again. While I do understand that it is a free game and it needs to have ads, the ads after every turn need to go away. The developers truly need to get back on track with the idea of it being fun and simple. To be honest I would pay for a version that was only the minimum, playing with friends. I think so many things about the app just make it such a nuisance to play and no fun at all. I am so sick of the general layout of the app and I know a lot of other people are frustrated too. I also know that those ads after every turn need to stop.
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!!!!
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.
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.
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. 😊
Addictive and educational.

Besides the fact that there’s an ad for every word you play and you have to pay $9.99 for every 30 days of no ads, this game is addictive and I’m really learning....like a LOT. So much so, its not even about winning for me. I accept matches with people who have been playing 10x as long as me, who I know will beat me, just to watch them and see how they play and learn from them AND learn new words. I’m obsessed with the lightning round as well. This game is amazing. I played the old version a few years ago and obviously it didn’t impact me because I never re-downloaded it. This new version is quite a renovation. I love it! There are some glitches. Like sometimes the ’x’ that allows you to exit out of the ad doesn’t show up and I have to close and re-open the app. A lot of the ads have fake a ’x’, too. If you don’t catch it, it tricks you into clicking the ad and opens a new window. Thats annoying and deceptive. I really wish there was a one-time fee to remove ads. I really don’t want to pay $9.99 for a 30 day ad-free ”bundle.” Sounds like a subscription to me but it’s advertised as a ”bundle.” Every rose has its thorn. :D
Fun, but problems
by 1800wingman on 2020/12/07 00:28
Quick play games have a couple of issues. Today I finished 1 game and started the next. But my first screen in the next game was the last screen of the previous game. And I could not clear it. First Swap attempt lead to Loading Board, but came back with same screen after several seconds. And nothing o tried made any difference. I watched as opponent’s score racked up and showed a shutout. I even turned off the iPhone screen, reopened it, entered my frozen screen, with no response to inputs. When opponent won everything reset as normal. This experience followed a game where my opponent didn’t even get on the board until my score was over 100. Reason unknown to me, obviously. Another issue I have benefited from a couple times: Somehow game loses track of available number of coins to play the game, and you can keep on playing until you feel like the earned stars lead is sufficient to win the series. i.e. coins to play never goes to zero. When you exit play, coin management returns to normal, in my experiences. A limit of 3 games in a row could be a solution to this bug, if you don’t find root cause.
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

Changes
by tedsrootbeer on 2021/03/08 03:50
Lately seems like you’re changing game such as play again after winning game. Sometimes I press to play friends again and end up with not one new game but 3 to 5 new games and I have to resign to get back to one game . Resigning a game counts against me. It’s annoying also apparently all The nicknames are taken, also I’m usually patient with the ads but lately there have been ads that will not go away, clicking the x takes you to the App Store and I end up having to reboot the game and game freezes up . I have to reboot getting annoying
Let me turn off random game requests!
by genavin on 2021/03/08 03:18
I love playing this with my friends, but when I get 20+ game requests a day from obvious fake profiles, it makes me not want to play. It’s a great game that is seriously marred by online creepers that you can’t avoid. Gross. Please fix
Um please fix
by dashy fans on 2021/03/08 02:19
This is a great game to pass time but I’m only here to report a bug the smileys are not working idk why so please fix
Words with friends 2: 2 many glitches
by WW2-frustrated on 2021/03/08 01:06
I love this game and have been playing for many years. Unfortunately, the glitches have become way too frequent and distracting. Videos don’t load, sometimes games don’t load. Almost ready to give up.
Word Strength gone
by MCM69 on 2021/03/08 00:50
Hate the update with the word strength gone and now requiring you to watch a video to get it back for 2 hours. What a stupid change.
Ugh
by Hugs4Love on 2021/03/08 00:49
Ughhhh why is that with every update something within the game goes wrong? Sometimes the game freezes. I don’t like the new design of the game, plus the watch ads for extra coins is no longer working either... plus I also sometimes don’t get alerts to the the games when it’s my turn. Just fixxxxx it please!
See Who Won
by SoliGal on 2021/03/07 22:57
Please stop forcing us to “see who one”, especially if it’s me. We know who won! Just another annoying step added to what was once a simple game. If I’m playing on two devices, I have to do it on both. On top of the kiddie style goals and rewards, I’m ready to pack it in. Sometimes it pays to KISS - keep it simple stupid!
Sorry
by usta play scrabble on 2021/03/07 21:12
I’m so sorry you took our emojis from where we send our moves. Sending an emoji with A play added fun to my score. It added A way to trash talk. I would like to see some 2, letter C words and more 2 letter V words.
Deleted under 15 minutes
by shiftlock on 2021/03/07 20:33
What a horrible user experience. Two of us tried to connect to play online and the game kept forcing us to auto-match with random players. We were trying to play together not with randos on the internet. Every single screen had a pop up that you couldn’t dismiss about Hints and Rewards and Challenges and Solos and on and on. The only thing we learned was how to dismiss the automatic games we kept getting assigned. You have to go to “more” then “resign” then WAIT for the X close because otherwise you only get the option to Rematch... Rematch the SAME rando you literally just dismissed. Just. Horrible.
Too many interruptions- awful
by HealthSeeker66 on 2021/03/07 20:33
I just downloaded this and tried to play...my experience was awful. So many interruptions asking me to try this and that. . they made game play impossible. And no, I will not even consider purchasing the paid version after this experience. Horrible. Your marketing strategy is like shooting yourself in the foot.
Problems
by Bluewave2.2 on 2021/03/07 16:57
Serious problems with game last 10 days or so. Numerous complaints on FB. So far my game ok but lost my coin swaps. Game way too ‘busy’ now. 😡😡😡
Angery

Still crashing during timed solo challenges
by Apple fan :) on 2021/03/07 16:49
So much to like but just about given up due to the constant crashing.
Good but lacking in a few areas
by Mostudly on 2021/03/07 16:21
If you like scrabble, you’ll like this. However, a few things are missing. They no longer have offline play. You used to be able to “pass and play” on your own phone with someone. That option is removed. Also, solo play against the CPU is too gimmicky. You have to wait hours and hours in between games, and can’t just play scrabble. They use the waiting time to force in app purchases, but if they gave a 1 time purchase option to unlock untimed CPU play, and made it full length games, that would be much much better.
Great challenging games
by margiemomnana on 2021/03/07 15:42
Great game but I’d like it better if I could just play with friends and not have the imaginary friends or at least have a way I can eliminate the clutter from my screen. Would also prefer to use “real” words instead of what sounds like grunts and groans or words that are WWF words... but not real words.
The newest update has taken my ability to play away!
by jory36 on 2021/03/07 15:16
I have tried to totally delete the game and reinstall but nothing is working! Many friends keep asking why they can’t reach me using Facebook page. Please help
I Enjoy Game, BUT
by tsswas on 2021/03/07 15:02
The dictionary, the acceptance of words and not, should be much better. It’s very frustrating when words that can not be found in the dictionary are accepted and words that are obviously words used and accepted every day are not.
I just want to play with friends
by RadioJeff on 2021/03/07 14:37
This game used to be fun. Now it’s bloated with ads and contests and distractions. It’s hard to even find the game I’m playing with my friend in the app. What’s worse is that the notifications are non stop. I tried turning them all off except for notifications that it’s my turn in a game I’M ACTUALLY PLAYING and I still just get notifications each day about someone I don’t know wanting to play with me. No way to stop those apparently. Enough already. There are other ways to play word games with friends that aren’t trying to be in-your-face all the time.
Advertising glitch
by Golf1660 on 2021/03/07 14:33
I don’t mind the advertisements, but the door dash one constantly won’t let me “x” out of it once it is finished- very frustrating!
Chat
by CArocketmail on 2021/03/07 13:53
Can you change the blue screen with white letters to something easier for your older players to see? The blue/white is difficult to read if you have vision problems. Maybe give three choices of color with the white letters?
Words with friends
by :::;;;;;;;;; on 2021/03/07 13:27
They have added a game called rivals. 80% of the time it freezes.
Fun, but...
by 4532 you on 2021/03/07 12:24
I too have been playing this game for several years. It’s a great distraction, has an edge of competition and I almost feel like I know my frequent “friends “. My only problem- and to me it’s a big one- is that the game freezes so much more now. It gets hung up on black screens after adds, etc. The only way I have found after waiting several minutes, is to delete the app. Then download it again. The last time, I lost all my previous points, friends, etc... even after typing in the friends name. It seems there are two different servers? or something that the entire playing community is not accessible or something. It’s too bad- we were in the middle of a 20+ game streak. Not fun to be thrown into “ beginners pile” or other server. Thanks for allowing feedback
After 10 years, considering deleting
by FoghornJ on 2021/03/07 08:47
My profile shows I’ve been playing since 2011. The recent addition of Rivals is really frustrating to the point I’m considering deleting the app. It’s constantly glitching whether it’s not adding stars, continuously starting the opponents countdown timer over, or just completely crashing the app and taking me back to the Home Screen. Support team will just reset my account and say to troubleshoot and make sure everything on my device has been updated. I purchased the game years ago because I play so often but thinking it’s time to start looking for alternative scrabble type games.
Great game
by AvidFan55 on 2021/03/07 08:25
Really love this game a lot. Not happy about the revisions in the latest upgrade though. The game layout was perfect before, now, not so much. The fonts and the board are more difficult to see and read, as is the tile bag. All the new bells and whistles that have been added and all of the ads, really slow down the game. Used to play a lot more, but this is not possible now, as everything takes so much longer. This game was so intuitively ingenious before. Why mess with a really good thing? Sad that it’s so slow now, you have to wait 10 minutes to even open a game with Wordmasters. This is a great game, please fix these things.
Lame game
by pavalava on 2021/03/07 06:43
Fake words, too many ads. This is becoming garbage. Get a life , nobody should have to suffer watching an ad after every single move you Jews!
Enjoy the game but
by socaldonnan on 2021/03/07 05:31
I’ve been enjoying this game for a number of years but I just don’t understand why nonsense words are allowed to be used and legitimate words not so. Is there a way to send the words not accepted to the game’s help desk for consideration?
Problems
by crazyched on 2021/03/07 04:25
For the third time in 5 weeks the game has locked up & prevented play for myself & all r the people playing with me! There is a list in prior notes!! Totally frozen- can play 5 games and they stay the same after 3 force close phone reboot please help!!!
Scammers
by hatescammer1 on 2021/03/07 03:34
I love the game but really get a charge out of hearing the sob stories that the scammers use. They are usually widowers with children and most work on oil rigs. They want you for their friend, ask you to join hangout or ask for email address. Then they ask for ‘steam’ cards or some other form of money. Lowlifes! I tell them so with a few more choice words, report them and then block them
Doesn’t work
by Linds lu on 2021/03/07 03:14
Ive been playing this game for years. I got a new phone. Non of the data transferred. No stars no previous games. I paid for this game. Now I have ads. No word strength. Can’t access settings. I’m done
The game isn’t working
by mck9223! on 2021/03/07 02:49
It’s been a week and I have not been able to start or receive a game.
Getting worse overtime
by k7185 on 2021/03/07 02:15
Takes too long to load. Too many side/ sub games awards and rewards. Time to improve the letter bag, dictionary and loose the extra. STUFF.
Loses my games
by ydoJ22357818 on 2021/03/07 02:14
It lost about 50% of my games a couple of weeks ago. It fixed it finally after 4-5 days. Guess what....it has lost the same ones again! BIG SHOCKER! I used to love this game....not so much NOW!
I love ❣️ your words with friends!
by bnme... on 2021/03/07 01:19
Fun times and love using all my tiles...
If only there were alternatives
by LTR2 on 2021/03/07 01:10
Graphics and everything else centered around selling us things. I am not the audience. I wish there were an alternative scrabble.
In Rivals , a snag
by TromboneSue on 2021/03/07 00:59
The Rivals portion has now caused me three stopped games. The rival never makes a play and the game is frozen. If I resign, I get a loss and no reward and the rival gets all the stars. Big deal, maybe not, but are these people doing it on purpose? It’s a bummer, should be a penalty for them if they try this scheme. If it’s on your end, please fix.
Good game
by Mrs Wv golfer on 2021/03/07 00:47
Good
Shelly’s Review
by Shellydav on 2021/03/06 23:59
I love playing the game with my friends and loved ones.
Frustrated!
by richlizzy on 2021/03/06 21:27
I have played Words With Friends for years and it is/was my favorite pastime. However, since purchasing the iPhone 12 I am unable to circumvent the lengthy, annoying, time consuming ads I am constantly assaulted with and I will probably stop playing as a result. I do not wish to pay an additional fee to play without ads, I’ve already paid enough for the phone and continue to pay for monthly service. I understand that advertising is how money is made, but this is absolute overkill!!!
A great game degraded by constant demands for money
by jstanley0 on 2021/03/06 21:02
I bought out of ads years ago so I don’t see videos after making plays and such. But the game constantly begs for money, sending push notifications about “premium rewards” or whatever. Seriously, just shut up and let me play the game I bought.
Can’t play at all after recent update?
by LBMX13 on 2021/03/06 20:17
I have been playing this game for months, especially during COVID19. Now, it locks up and I can’t play at all after the recent security updates. Can’t find a human and none of the recommended “fixes” helped, this is sooo sad ! I wonder how many others are locked out? I can access the game, can see the screens, place tiles, but then nothing.
Too Many Ads!!
by LunaSyd:) on 2021/03/06 19:15
I love playing with my friends and completing challenges and goals but this app has WAY too many ads! You have to watch an ad after every turn, and they are trick ads that take you to the App Store and your internet browser with fake “close” buttons.
Commercials!
by Meliann55 on 2021/03/06 17:57
Too many!
The COACH
by Coach Hewitt on 2021/03/06 17:47
Meet a lot of nice women on WWF. Some are fake? But the games are Super. GOOD JOB WWF! 😉
No ad play would be nice
by scrabbletx on 2021/03/06 17:44
Great app. Would like a paid app to avoid the advertisements that interrupt play.
So Annoying
by Squeakybrat on 2021/03/06 16:36
The words you accept and don’t accept, your silly games, the cluelessness of your definitions, to name just a few.
Doesn’t work on cellular connection: update
by Funkytut on 2021/03/06 16:18
This may have been an issue with an unconfigured VPN. When I discovered it and turned it off, the problem went away. (My normal VPN does not cause issues, but this one was installed without my knowledge.) Iphone12, latest iOS, reinstall didn’t work The app states that a network connection is required to work. I try googling the issue on the 5G network that my phone is on and there are no relevant articles. I was also able to delete and reinstall the app on that “nonworking” network. I think, but am not sure, that it might work on LTE. To simulate the problem at home, I turned off WiFi and observed that I had LTE. I was able to play one move before being told I needed a network. At that time, I observed that my phone had switched to 5G.
Oops
by 2Qts4me on 2021/03/06 16:09
Several times I will lose points because it will say oops something went wrong and also now I can’t play the solo game because it’s grinding away—☹️
Too many issues!
by Stef Eff on 2021/03/06 15:25
I’m an avid word game player and I used to LOVE the game! But now? NO! I am SO SICK of all the issues this game app is having! The issues happen repeatedly in all game types within this app! Instead of adding new game modes and features, how about fixing the repetitive issues with the existing ones?! In the middle of Word Rival matches, it won’t let me play my rounds when it’s my turn. Similar issues have happened in Duels. Also in Duels, I’ve actually started a NEW round with a NEW opponent, but letters and plays from the previous opponent are on the board! And in Lightning matches? It’s the worst! I’ve gotten kicked out in the beginning of matches, mid-match, at the end of matches when the word play is over because a team reached 750 and it’s just time to view the point breakdown! I’ve had new matches begin after an ad has played, and then it boots me out, takes me back to the end of the stupid ad, and then I have to go back in and try to re-join the team or get put into an entirely new game! And has even kicked me out before of new rounds and put me BACK in previous Lightning matches with previous word plays still on the screen! And the dumb stickers?! What self-respecting, word game maven cares about that?! Leave that foolishness to apps like Facebook and Snapchat! FIX THE ISSUES! PLEASE!
Free word strength?
by gracie32218 on 2021/03/06 15:04
Why is there no longer free word strength? Another change that is irritating.
Rewards
by fcgej on 2021/03/06 15:02
I don’t like the new goal-rewards system.
Solo challenge
by Jc2322 on 2021/03/06 15:01
I really like playing words with friends. Love solo challenge..but mine locked up and there is no way to contact anyone to “unlock” and move it along. ( just keeps saying processing) Help! I would also like to be able to trade some of the look back and other buttons ( spy glass and eyeglasses) for swap, which I primarily use. You are keeping the game very interesting, thank you!
Incorrect words
by Bill659 on 2021/03/06 14:20
Too many incorrect words. Some proper nouns are allowed, but others are not. Many discrepancies in what is an acceptable word. Tell us how to problems.

My winter wonderland timer keeps resetting or freezing and now I’ve lost out on time to earn prizes?? It went from 15 minutes left until new rewards to 23 hours??? I’ve reset my phone and the app. I spent a lot of time trying to get far so now what I just have to lose out??
Solo Challenge Froze
by LSioux4 on 2021/03/06 05:51
For some reason current solo challenge is still running even though I deleted the app from my screen. The App Store says that the game is “open” — but only so in the App Store. Please fix.
Rewards

What happened to all the smiley face stickers.? They just suddenly disappeared from my game.
Way too many commercials!!!!

It is killing my battery- deleting it! Tried it again- even more commercials and some with no way to exit!!!!! Done never again
Words with friends 2
by lkoch234 on 2021/03/06 03:16
After the wwf2 update, I can’t figure out how to synchronize my iPhone with my iPad. I’ve deleted and installed a few times to make sure running same version on both devices. Everything looks right but I play my opponents and none play back on both devices.
Glitches
by Lori12_61 on 2021/03/06 02:37
This is one of my all time favorite games and I have been playing for many many years. But the most frustrating thing about playing this game are the glitches and certain features to get you to engage with past players. I would like got them to remove that feature. I will say after much navigation to contact them thru the game they will reply and try to fix the problems. It’s a great game, and you get to chat with opponents from all around the world. I like that. Overall it’s enjoyable
Notifications

Need to be able to turn off garbage notifications. I just want to know when it’s my turn.
Annoyed
by NiNi H. on 2021/03/06 01:04
Do not wast your money in the game. I’ve make two purchases and I haven’t gotten my reward from level 11 despite me making it to level 19. And I’ve unlocked all 45 tiers and still didn’t get my 20 bonus boxes as stated. Just ANNOYING! Unable to update my email address.
Best online game ever!

Love this game
Annoying ads
by fhhfjfjfbb on 2021/03/06 00:03
Keep collecting gold coins but for what? The ads in between each game are annoying. Some days I just don’t want to deal with them and I won’t play. No way am I spending $9 a month to go ad free.
My stickers disappeared! What happened? ☹️
by Merrilln on 2021/03/05 23:41
I have been playing a long time. I went to play today and all of a sudden the majority of of my stickers are gone.
Red circles
by argee 727 on 2021/03/05 23:11
I just want to play scrabble. I don’t want to play any of your side games and I don’t wanna be told that I have this reward or that reward. And I want that white number in the red circle to go away
Best Game Ever

I love this game it is one of my favorite games also because I can play with my Grammy and it is really fun.
Too much garbage
by Dianejenn on 2021/03/05 22:36
One of my favorite apps has filled the experience with way too many auto initiated games, rewards have gone downhill, aggravating goal messages, etc., which has led to a very frustrating experience. I want to play scrabble. Please cut back on all the extra traps before my friends and I drop the app.
Ad free version is gone
by KRL123456789 on 2021/03/05 21:56
I have been playing Words for many years and now apparently with your latest update you dropped me. I am unable to load the version that shows my progress and my friends. When I try to load Words 2, two words apps load at the same time and I end up with the ad version and a new screen name and none of my friends.
Awesome and addictive!!
by Zezobebo on 2021/03/05 21:39
Love this version and have been playing forever. I wish there was a way to accumulate more points though.
Ads are ridiculous
by so gggvyyfcdd on 2021/03/05 21:00
After every move is an Ad so incredibly annoying. Makes me sick of playing quickly
Latest updates take forever to load
by blubopper on 2021/03/05 20:38
They also sometimes crash on loading. I’ve been playing a long time, and watched the game gain incomprehensible features and bells and whistles, to the detriment of the experience of simply playing the game. And waiting for it to open has gotten ridiculous. I have a strong phone with 64 gigs running the latest iOS; it’s not my phone.
As free
by User.3 on 2021/03/05 20:23
I wish it was ad free. It so annoying when you aren’t interested in the ads.

Used to be good
by JJ2wp on 2021/03/05 18:09
I have been playing for 10 years. Used to be a good app but all the glitches and new features are overwhelming and frustrating. It’s too much. The app can barely run because it’s so bogged down with junk. Please return to simplicity.

Stickers
by Teneybro on 2021/03/05 16:18
Please do not waste my time with those stupid stickers! Remove them from the game board!
Ads with sound are unacceptable.
by Davebreak on 2021/03/05 15:53
Love playing this. The ads are obtrusive and incessant. Which would be acceptable EXCEPT SOME ADS RUN WITH SOUND. Choosing no sound or flipping the switch on my phone does nothing. Only turning down the volume works. This is unacceptable as I often play with others around and forget to set my volume to off. Looking for a substitute.
Too many intrusive ads
by dorejegoin on 2021/03/05 15:53
I have played words with friends off and on for several years and am considering quitting because of the ads that refuse to go away. (Example is Candy Crush refuses to disappear and noise is overbearing) I don’t need the aggravation!
Leda
by Pudding and tame on 2021/03/05 15:52
THIS GAME IS UNREAL, SO MANY ADS AFTER EVERY SINGLE WORD YOU PLAY SO IT RUNS YOUR BATTERY DOWN FAST. NO I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS GAME. SINCE THE NEW “UPDATE “ I HAVE HAD SO MANY PROBLEMS AND NOT ONLY DEALING WITH ADS NOW I AM DEALING WITH POP-UPS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE IF PLAYING ASKING ME IF I WANT TO BUY SWAP OR WORD RADAR OR ANYTHING ELSE. Updated wwfs and like all the other updates it doesn’t work or help the players. Just a big mess. Now we get to go days and days not being able to play. No I would not recommend this game.
Ad and tip issues
by blaizinpanda19 on 2021/03/05 15:50
After each turn you gave to watch an add. It also randomly tells you tips about the game which are annoying being you must view the tips for 3-5 seconds before being able to close the tips out. Also the ad-free version is 9.99 a month.....

Enjoy playing these games each morning with my coffee just wish there was a way to stop those who are trying to take advantage of players by starting up a conversation with hopes of scamming them.
Ending the game
by Rugged48 on 2021/03/05 14:07
I recently added your App and for the most part I enjoy it. However, besides accepting words you do not find in any dictionary, the game has a fatal flaw. When you come down to the end, having just a few letters left in your possession, the “game” suddenly declares a winner, despite how close the match is. This is acceptable when the match is not very competitive but it should not happen when score is reasonably close. Even when you just have a few letters left, you can score well. The “game” can’t read your mind as to what word(s) you are going to make. Why play the game if it is going to end prematurely. Hope you can address this. Thanks.
Convincing me to switch to Scrabble app
by Memyself Andeye on 2021/03/05 13:49

Get over yourselves
by Dreamquilt on 2021/03/05 13:28
I have been playing this game for eight years. It has gone from fun to frustration. Click responses are slow, defaults to seldom used pages within the site make no sense, requests to join on Facebook are annoying. Get a clue.
Great game, ads won’t let you X
by Court8497 on 2021/03/05 10:33
I play this game all the time snd really enjoy it. I know ads are a necessity to keep it free snd I don’t mind that. The thing that drives me crazy is that so often the X is so tiny that when I try to click it, it just brings up the ad over and over until I just get irritated snd close the app entirely.
The adds are ridiculous
by 19hannah81 on 2021/03/05 07:14
I’ve been playing off and on for years I enjoy the game and mini games but the adds are beyond annoying. I am glad to see that chatting is optional now. The last time I deleted the game was because of people asking for money or inappropriate pics. You used to be able to pay a okie time fee to remove adds but now they want you to pay monthly. Guessing I won’t be on it much longer.
Quick duels
by Sbmabc on 2021/03/05 05:22
Some times my opponent is selling word(s) and getting point prior to me being in the game. Leaving me at a competitive disadvantage. Try to fix uneven or unfair beginnings to duels.

This is a great way to learn words. I played this game for quite some years, but I did give it a break because of the ads. I didn’t reinstall the game and start playing again, however I think I’m going to go ahead and uninstall it because the ads or after each game plan for each hand that is irritating. The less the ads the more the phone. The more the ads the more annoyed

Let’s just play the game. Other things are not fun, are a distraction and waste bandwidth Why can’t I swap tiles when there are some in the bag?
Fun but filled with ads!
by CeptNobodyAskedMe on 2021/03/04 22:33
It’s a fun app and a great way to stay connected with faraway friends. That said, there are so many ads! It’s also complicated in terms of features that are less than user friendly or intuitive. If I were in charge of the WWF world, I’d clean up the app to clear the clutter on the screen.

Trouble with the Quick Play
by Jdealy on 2021/03/04 21:59
I’ve been playing WWF for many years and generally love it! I really do enjoy the new quick play events, but over the past couple days, I play one game and try to play another one and the game quits and gives me whatever score I got on the first game and I lose my “ticket” to play. Please fix this! Thank you!
I have been playing words with friends years!
by Sillicacher on 2020/11/14 17:13
I believe I started playing in 2010 so I have been playing for a decade. If I am wrong it would be only by a year. First 8 years I played everyday multiple times a day. It was nothing for me to have 40 games going at a time. I love playing WWF but I wish that some of the power ups were able to be chosen not just won or given. There are TWO I so rarely use that I have +99 in both. I do find the swap feature and play very helpful when my letter pile is so bad I can’t make any word. It would be great if we could chose to move over some of the hindsight and the letter placement option piles. Even if it were to cost 20 of these to get 5 of the swap and play power ups. I also find some of the added features for play kinda annoying but I understand that they are needed to keep things going and interest high. My interest lies with the original game features and playing the word master. Given all the new features I still play and will continue to do so. I do not play the volume I used to but that is because I am heavily involved in designing mandalas and similar designs for people to color. I keep my games going so that I can keep my, one of the early to original players position. I will always play this game however my points and positions are really reduced this game provides mental stimulation and vocabulary growth. Thanks for keeping it going all these years and into the future.
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?
Christine Harris’ words with friends 2 review
by fillinger52 on 2021/03/02 17:33
I enjoy most aspects of the game such as the variety of events, the ability to earn points, stars, etc, and the competition. I don’t enjoy the glitches from time to time that not even updating the app improves. These are things like taking away games when playing duels, not being able to find the quick start games with just using the plus button, not being able to play a game in rivers as it never comes up oh and who cares about the back button. I love free trades and all the plays left especially at the end of the game but the best move is not always the best move although it is 90% of the time so well worth it. What I still dislike about it the most are all the men who are trying to use a free game app as a dating service, they are annoying, constantly trying to chat when you want to play and sometimes rude. They are predictable in that they are always widows, have one child-usually a girl, and either work in over seas oil rigs or in the military. I have heard from some of the ladies that they have been asked for money and or preloaded cards. Keep adding new ways to earn points and take off some. With duels who needs the the old timed games. Also, even though I contact you with issues I get no feedback or corrections. I’ve had the same number of original words for over eight years and it never changes. And there are a couple other things not even worth mentioning.
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.
Overwhelming
by DelBeesu on 2020/12/29 23:18
There is waaaaaay too much going on in this app. When you open it up, you are bombarded with messages about treasure hunts and mini games and contests, ads, and then when you finally get to the main menu there are always like 3 games that you didn’t agree to play with random strangers that you have to actively go into to tell it to decline in order to remove it. Underneath that there are suggestions for random strangers for you to play. There have been times where I missed that it was my turn in the one game I’m playing for over a day because there’s so much going on that I just couldn’t see our game in the menu and see that it was my turn. Then there are “tips” where the app wants you to know about a feature. Sometimes it’s hints, or a new thing that you can earn points for for whatever, but they are impossible to exit out of without agreeing to do the thing, which is really obnoxious. There have also been times where I’ve been forced to go into some new section of the app that I’m not interested and couldn’t figure out how to get back to the main screen, and has to just close the app and reopen it. This has got to be one of the most overwhelming, obnoxious apps I’ve ever used. The only reason I didn’t delete it immediately is because my friend who I never get to see really wanted to play scrabble, and we used to play in this app when it was new and less insane. I may delete it after this game though.
Poorly developed Scrabble
by Unwrittn on 2020/02/12 21:34
I love Scrabble. But the design and execution of this app is just sad. First, it says ‘Words with Friends’, meaning the primary purpose is to play with people you know. But unless they are dedicated to the game, you could wait hours or even days for the other person to take their turn. If you really want to play, but you’re tired of waiting for a friend to check in, you could hit up a complete stranger. I’ve done this a few times only to be quizzed on my personal life, political and religious beliefs, and my love life. Apparently, this game attracts very lonely people who would rather chat than play, and who also think a game app is an appropriate place to find a companion. So again, I gave up on that avenue of play. What’s left? Solo Challenges! A chance to play against the computer at the rate of one game every 8 hours. Lame! And the computer does not stick to English, or a preferred language, or any language at all for that matter. It makes up words! I just played an entire game again “Long Nose Neil” and not a single word he played was a valid English word! Several were not real words and even the computer had no definition for them; others were in other languages (Hebrew, French, and Spanish). And as if that wasn’t annoying enough, it’s not even a real game. You have “5 moves(words)” in which to out-score the computer. I gave it 2 stars for being mildly entertaining, but it’s a far cry from what real Scrabble lovers would expect.
Update freezes
by Babs Toyfish on 2020/09/17 03:08
Update: Zynga seems bent on getting rid of all their adult users. The app gets progressively, aggressively stupider with every update. It’s more geared toward two-year-olds all the time. Maybe I’m being paranoid, but sometimes I suspect that they built that freeze (mentioned below) in on purpose to get you to always update in hopes the new version will fix it, because with every update a new annoying popup feature for children comes along, or you’re now charged for things that used to be free. I normally avoid updates because of things like this, but that freeze has got me trying each new one that comes along. They’re building in new bugs all the time seems. First it was not being able to use voice to text in chat more than once. Then it was not being able to use the cursor in the chat box. It’s like a new bug every time. One would think that a $7 billion company could do better on quality control. And every new feature feels like they’re dumbing the app down to appeal to children because children are easier to bilk money out of. I’m an advanced player who’s been playing this app a lot since 2011. It feels like they’re trying to push people like me out with all of this baby stuff. ———- App now freezes after every play. What’s up zynga? Been playing this game almost a decade now and never had a problem with the app. This makes 2 updates progressively worse than the last.
Bad design and each update brings new problems.
by Tabletha on 2020/09/19 04:27
I received a developer response saying to contact them directly. As stated in this review, I had already contacted directly. They either did not feel they have a problem, or they did not care to share with tech people that this seems to be a glitch within the game. They said to do all the things they usually say. As stated below, they were all already done. Won’t waste more time getting in touch with them, when they do not believe there is ever anything wrong. Once again, Word Wheel does not work. The screen goes solid dark blue, just like right before the profile slides put from the right side. The profile, inventory, achievements etc., when selected, slide out from the right side, overlaying a full dark blue screen. The Word Wheel game just turns into a completely dark blue screen, with no functionality. Have to close the app and reopen it, because it does not even have a way to x it out. Just dead blue screen. Have done two updates and nothing changes. ________________ This time it’s Word Wheel does not work. Try to play and get blank blue screen. I DO have the latest update. I DID delete and reinstall. I DID sign out and in again. I DID contact customer service and they said they refreshed from their end. Two cycles of Word Wheel games and they still will not play. and I do not want another refresh, because that invariably causes something else. Isn’t anyone else having this problem? Please fix.
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.
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.
Fun game, but full of scammers
by jokael2 on 2020/08/22 18:48
There has to be some way to vet out these scammers who begin unsolicited conversations with women. They are relentless and annoying, and they have the same script. I don’t believe most of them are native English speakers based on their canned conversations and poor game-playing. After I accepted several challenges (I hoped they were due to being ‘smart matched’ with someone), 3 different men all started similar conversations with me ‘hello dear’ or using my name in another one. Then in 2 of them it led almost immediately to ‘where are you from’ and in one straight to ‘so, are you married?’ In one where I didn’t answer his repeated ‘hellos’, he finally said ‘so you don’t chat?’ I answered that and told him hello, but I was leery of chatting due to being asked those questions. He said he understood. Then next question was ‘so, where are you from?’ That’s when I looked up words with friends trolls, and found that this is a thing where ppl have actually been scammed. I don’t know what the answer is except to never say yes to a game or maybe just never open conversations with people I don’t know, but in the past I was able to say ‘good game’ or ‘nice word’ without worrying someone was going to try to solicit money from me. I love the game itself, so this stinks.
Don’t waste money on coins.
by zerokool23 on 2021/02/08 22:05
I’ve been playing since 2011 and noticed some things along the way. I’m finally irked enough to write a review. First off, most apps on here have a sole purpose and that is to make money for the developer and it seems to me like they use clever algorithms in order to achieve this with WWF. I always end up with all consonants or all vowels and then use a free swap that I’ve earned (you can purchase them as well) and then get more of the same essentially wasting your free swap. You might say that can happen in real life, but if you’ve played long enough you can almost predict it. I also know there are some games that I will statistically have no chance to win when all of the high value tiles go to your opponent. Again, just a pattern I’ve notice. I’ve also noticed that in the tile bag they always try to keep the consonants and vowels fairly even so I know it’s not random. Then in Quick Play where you need to have a ticket to play I would get glitches that to me seem like they are on purpose. For instance I started a game and could see my opponent already racking up points before the screen finished loading my screen to play. Sometimes I would use a ticket and it would take me back to the beginning screen and I would lose my ticket. I refuse to spend money on this app because I know it’s like playing Vegas. The odds are never in your favor. I still play it, but just know you won’t have a chance it certain games.
Apple Pencil with iOS14 Update
by Mimidddddvvvvvv123123123 on 2020/09/18 15:47
I always play Words with Friends 2 with my Apple Pencil on my iPad. I use it to scroll through the game and move tiles. However, With the new update to iOS 14, the app will not allow me to use the pencil to grab tiles once I open a game. Instead, now the pencil just scribbles all over the game board and there is no option to turn this off. I don’t need to scribble on a scrabble game board, it’s not a coloring page. It is pointless. So far, all other apps I’ve opened work fine with the pencil. Please fix to still allow the pencil to also be used to play the game by scrolling and grabbing tiles, not just as a drawing tool. Other issues I have is if you use a Word Radar and then leave that board, when you return the game closes the “radar” and then makes you “buy” another radar. They didn’t use to do this and it seems petty. Also, I like that that they allow you to change the game tile within each individual game. However, in one of my games it keeps reverting to this one game tile that I hate. Even though I have changed both my universal default tile and the individual game tile, every time I open the individual game it reverts back to this other tile that I can’t stand. It is annoying. I love WWF but constant little glitches happen enough to where I felt I needed to say something here.
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.
Solo challenge
by Blondah on 2021/01/17 18:09
I normally do quite well in solo challenge. It used to be my favorite game in Words with Friends. However,The last two times I’ve gotten to the last character to play to end the challenge for the last box, it’s cost all the coins I’ve earned from watching ads before I even start. When I buy the swap, I get even worse letters than I had before. This particular game with “Gaia” has been the worst. Gaia has all the best letters each hand, and even if I swap each hand, I get the same letters I just had or worse! Once I got all vowels! I’ve played her at least 7 times! Ridiculous! I’m not going to play this portion of the game again. It’s a shame because I looked forward to playing the solo challenge each day. I’ll stick to the basic part of playing with “friends.” Other than that, it’s a good game I enjoy. It also seems we are watching more ads and earning less coin than before in the last version. One other thing: is this a dating app? I’m using the moniker “I Don’t Chat” for my name, and I’m still getting toms of men daily asking me to play, then attempting to chat. “Hi”, “Hi Dear!” “Where are you from?” Apparently they can’t read since I refuse to chat! Please do something about this! Looking at reviews here I see this is a constant problem for other women as well. Ugh! Annoying to say the least!
Great game, but room to improve
by ikimasu1 on 2021/03/02 01:09
This is a fun game that I have enjoyed for about 10 years, and there have been some interesting improvements & changes along the way. Some changes are good, some not so much. Most of the bad comes from the need to make money through IAPs instead of offering a subscription, though I do feel they’ve mitigated some of this with recent changes. I would still prefer a subscription to IAPs or ads. That said, the new mini-game “Word Rivals” is a great addition, but there are two big flaws. First, when you’re losing and the last turn goes to your opponent, the game should end automatically. It’s frustrating to have to wait for the other player to make a pointless move, especially when they make you wait the full 50 seconds. Secondly, there is a huge disadvantage to go first in this game. One potential solution is to start the game with one random word already on the board. This would change the strategy every game, regardless of who goes first. I also think it would be better if each player is guaranteed two high-point tiles (ie always start with 2). If the other player gets them all, it’s virtually impossible to win unless they don’t know how to play. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
“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!
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 & HATE WWF2
by Kathleen BB on 2021/02/28 16:06
Great game improvement over regular WWF ,more fun, interesting and challenging. Buggy! Buggy! Buggy! Buggy‼️ I play daily both on my iPhone and iPad. When I started playing WWF2, there were a few incidents per month, where I had to re-boot my iPhone10. Whenever they come out with a new update, the game will crash consistently 2-4 x’s per week prior; progressively worsening to daily until you update. Then crashing is less, but still somewhat buggy after. I updated to the Winter Wonderland last week on my iPad. The first day it crashed completely and would not clear with re-booting,(times 6). I had to completely re-install the game and lost all my stored credits, history and advancements. Understandably, I have been dragging my feet about updating my iphone10 to this Winter Wonderland version, yet the game crashes several times daily and yesterday I was cheated out of 18 coins from the watch the ads binge they offer you when you claim the daily bonus! There is no avenue to contact them to report problems. Most of the problems occur when the ads play, the screen can freeze, turn dark, or the logo just spins. Hint, hint, ever pushing for you to pay for the no-ad upgrade which is expensive.
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!
Delays and catfish
by StephanieS1227 on 2020/09/07 17:04
I play this game often and I enjoy it, but I have been noticing that when I play the lightning rounds with groups, I get an overwhelming amount of men sending me 1:1 games. I know for certain that some of them are Nigerian catfish masquerading as U.S. servicemen and surgeons who are working for the UN and on assignment overseas. I am extremely resourceful when it comes to investigating and can say without any uncertainty that the men are catfish. If anyone from WWF ops wants to discuss, I would be happy to reveal my sources. Also, when I play QuickPlay, my game lags - majorly. My board will still be loading and the opponent has 50 points before I can even look at my letters. Then, in between words, the board will load and load and by the time it finally does, the game is over and I have lost. Other times, it will say it’s searching for an opponent and I will close out of the game to restart and try again and a game is in progress and I’m about to lose, which wastes a turn. There are a lot of glitches and the catfishing needs to be addressed. For the time being, I have changed my photo to one of my dog to deter weirdos from sending me games. I have still received quite a few and I’m thinking I may need to be a bit of a catfish myself and change my photo to a sumo wrestler and my name to “Butch” or something of the like to play unscathed.
Good game but bugs are costly and weird strangers
by Lady11927 on 2021/01/09 05:51
The game in itself is good. I’ve been playing it for almost 10 years in and off. However, I recommend you don’t spend money on it. I recently bought the rewards pass and have missed out on getting a lot of the rewards because the app keeps bugging out and removing the pass altogether. I tried to contact support, did what they told me, and still got no fix or refund. There are a lot of glitches that cause you to have to spend coins twice. Through several updates, the issue has not been resolved. I spent money on the game because I love it but it’s just not worth the bugs. On top of that, there’s a scam issue when you play with male strangers. There are hundreds of fake profiles run by a bot. They try to talk to you excessively, hit on you, etc. They draw you in and later on ask for money. I only know all of that because I’ve read about it, but at first I had no idea why I was being hit on by creepy strange men. I don’t mind playing games with random users but there has to be some way WWF can weed out the bots.... the bots immediately resign games if you don’t continue chatting with them because they know they won’t get any scam money. Zynga pleeeeaaaassssseeeee fix these issues. They’re killing an otherwise great game.
Love to Play WWF
by Bring back the old look on 2021/02/13 16:16
I have been playing this game for many years and enjoy it immensely. I do have a bone to pick, however, with the latest change, which is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. The change that I am unhappy with concerns the Daily Word Play. It used to be very easy to access Daily Word Play as it was displayed in more than one area of the game board. The previous Points Goal for Daily Word Play was 167, and you had 4 tries to get to that score and when you did not reach it in 4 tries you could watch a video for 4 additional tries. Once you reached 167 points you received a Mystery Box. I was fine with watching a short ad for the 4 additional tries, and I always did so to complete the 167 point goal. Now the goal is 930 for a Mystery Box with unlimited tries and no ads, and the only way to access it is through the Goals box. The issue is if you want to stop before 930 points (because that score takes a bit of time to achieve) and go back to Daily Word Play later, there is no longer a way to access it again. Please fix this issue, as I am sure that other players like to put down the game and go back to Daily Word Play later when they are not playing other opponents.
The programmers don’t know the English language
by Tfeliot on 2020/08/31 00:00
It is frustrating enough playing this game because of the way they force their little rewards on you and you have to wait for those to process before you can continue playing. But worse than ever, is that I don’t think that these people are using any valid English dictionary to determine what is a word and what is not. I have an English writing degree and I can tell you that there of been multiple times when a word should have been acceptable and was not. These are words that were acceptable in the game of Scrabble, and I suggest the programmers start using Scrabble’s Dictionary or some other valid dictionary I have a feeling this is the result of programmers who have English as a second language. Very frustrating and I am considering quitting for this reason. Since I wrote the preceding words, the developer contacted me and told me that they use the Oxford English Dictionary and that they except 160,000 words. If they indeed used the Oxford English Dictionary, they would know that it has over 600,000 words in it. And they should also know that people who play word games are generally people who have a larger vocabulary than people who think there are only 160,000 words. Their response proved my point.
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!
Fun game but...
by RegNYNJ on 2020/10/19 13:42
Fun game but... improvements can be made. The game is engaging and does connect you with friends and family but there are things that bother me. Coins, etc awarded are lacking. If I spend my time on this game (on the daily word, for example, which takes a while), I should be given more than just a few meager coins. Even the word search puzzles reward you 10 coins for 12 games. Why not at least 12? Ads are constant and overwhelming. They interrupt the flow of games and waste time. There are way too many. Time is wasted in other ways. The wait in between forming words in Duals, for example, is tedious and at times costs me the game as my opponent wins while the game is stalled. Ridiculous! Time is also depleted when we are told every little coin we have won, whether it be one or two or 10. Less updates with more info would save time, battery power and interrupt us less often. Perhaps a reward section could be used so we could check. Battery power is drained too quickly when using the app and all the ads and slowdowns already mentioned contribute to that. I hope to keep playing but wish for improvements. I do enjoy the games here but the annoyances can greatly detract from them.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Needs a LOT of change
by alynxe on 2021/01/17 15:49
Honestly I love the idea behind this app, but it has been over developed. There are entirely too many things going on and all of the different menus are a complete DISASTER, even for someone who has been playing a good while. This game neede to be completely torn down to the bare minimum and reconstructed much simpler and without the ridiculous amount of extra stuff. The second problem, and honestly the most important problem is the ads. To be perfectly honest they make the game unplayable. No one wants to sit through 30 second ads after every turn. This game was supposed to make playing online scrabble much more fun, and easier, but the ads make me want to delete it and never play again. While I do understand that it is a free game and it needs to have ads, the ads after every turn need to go away. The developers truly need to get back on track with the idea of it being fun and simple. To be honest I would pay for a version that was only the minimum, playing with friends. I think so many things about the app just make it such a nuisance to play and no fun at all. I am so sick of the general layout of the app and I know a lot of other people are frustrated too. I also know that those ads after every turn need to stop.
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!!!!
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.
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.
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. 😊
Addictive and educational.

Besides the fact that there’s an ad for every word you play and you have to pay $9.99 for every 30 days of no ads, this game is addictive and I’m really learning....like a LOT. So much so, its not even about winning for me. I accept matches with people who have been playing 10x as long as me, who I know will beat me, just to watch them and see how they play and learn from them AND learn new words. I’m obsessed with the lightning round as well. This game is amazing. I played the old version a few years ago and obviously it didn’t impact me because I never re-downloaded it. This new version is quite a renovation. I love it! There are some glitches. Like sometimes the ’x’ that allows you to exit out of the ad doesn’t show up and I have to close and re-open the app. A lot of the ads have fake a ’x’, too. If you don’t catch it, it tricks you into clicking the ad and opens a new window. Thats annoying and deceptive. I really wish there was a one-time fee to remove ads. I really don’t want to pay $9.99 for a 30 day ad-free ”bundle.” Sounds like a subscription to me but it’s advertised as a ”bundle.” Every rose has its thorn. :D
Fun, but problems
by 1800wingman on 2020/12/07 00:28
Quick play games have a couple of issues. Today I finished 1 game and started the next. But my first screen in the next game was the last screen of the previous game. And I could not clear it. First Swap attempt lead to Loading Board, but came back with same screen after several seconds. And nothing o tried made any difference. I watched as opponent’s score racked up and showed a shutout. I even turned off the iPhone screen, reopened it, entered my frozen screen, with no response to inputs. When opponent won everything reset as normal. This experience followed a game where my opponent didn’t even get on the board until my score was over 100. Reason unknown to me, obviously. Another issue I have benefited from a couple times: Somehow game loses track of available number of coins to play the game, and you can keep on playing until you feel like the earned stars lead is sufficient to win the series. i.e. coins to play never goes to zero. When you exit play, coin management returns to normal, in my experiences. A limit of 3 games in a row could be a solution to this bug, if you don’t find root cause.
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
