This game has big problems with freezing and crashing. I do enjoy the game, but the issues are a real pain in the butt. They need to update the app.
Was a great game

It’s a great game but the last few weeks it has been freezing after I complete a puzzle on my iPhone. I’m not ok with having to close the game and reopen it, I’d just as soon not play it. I’ve sent in screenshots numerous times and still no solution for it. UPDATE: I finally had to delete the app and reinstall. Now I have lost all my data. I’m really upset about this, I want my progress back!

by Salina7 on 2020/09/05 22:43
It’s a fun Game. Most of the Ads are quick. One Ad for Panda Pop would not go away. Very annoying. When you touched the screen hoping to find an X it would take you to the App Store to purchase. I had to quit the game. I had to reinstall the game on a new phone end it started all over with puzzle one. I was on 600 and something. Very disappointing

Great concept but a little too buggy for me (it unpredictably hangs) and the ads get tiresome. Too bad I liked the game in general.
Bug
by wilkymom5 on 2020/08/24 16:29
Used to love this game, now it won’t play after you solve the puzzle it does nothing. Must be a bug.
Great game, amazing service
by Wxhtuop on 2020/08/22 13:28
First, this is a terrific game that never makes you spend money to play, although you can pay to get rid of the ads. I don’t mind them. If you like to play Wheel of Fortune, you will enjoy this. A couple of days ago I posted a complaint and a 1 star review because it had developed a terrible bug . (I’m leaving that review below in case anyone has the same issue.). Someone from MobilityWare got back to me within 24 hours and told me they were working on it. Within another 24 hours, the game was running flawlessly. Responsive, competent service is very rare in the digital world. I would give them six stars if I could. ————- MY PREVIOUS REVIEW IN CASE YOU HAVE TGE SAME ISSUE: If it wasn’t for the bug, I’d give it at least 4 stars. I had been playing and enjoying this game. However after an update, the screen began freezing so badly after each win that I had to power off my phone entirely to unfreeze the game. A reinstall fixed it temporarily but it wiped out all my data and accumulated boosters. Then it developed a variation on the same bug. When I play the game of the day and hit solve, it freezes after the win. It doesn’t go dark, but I can’t get to another game. If my answer was incorrect, it won’t let me try again. It superimposes a letter grid over the “solve” keyboard, but won’t let me use either. I’ve given up. If I go back the next day the game will have unfrozen and I can play the game of the day, but that’s it. It’s not worth the frustration to try to continue. When it’s working: If you enjoy watching Wheel of Fortune, you will enjoy this game. The best thing about this game is that it’s truly free. You are never asked to buy anything in order to play . There’s an ad before every game, but I can live with that. Just research the company before you click on the link. They are of uneven quality. Also I was glad to see that they expanded their categories. It used to be mostly pop culture with some literature and geography. Over the summer they added variety. But I never see any of those categories any more because of the bug.
I love it

I downloaded this app about a week ago. I was really enjoying it when all of a sudden the app started freezing up after each win. It is no fun to have to reload an app every minute or so. Too bad. Maybe I’ll try it again in a few weeks - hopefully this bug will be fixed.

This game keeps freezing up. Too many advertisements that knock me out of the game then I have to start over. Advertisement is the worst I have seen on most free games! Not worth the download!

I agree with Lr971. Each time I solve a puzzle, it goes to an ad. Whether I watch the entire ad or fast forward, a black screen appears and I have to close app and restart on iPad. I really enjoy this game, however I’m about to delete it and forget it!

New update crap
by Peacock67809 on 2020/07/10 12:09
I’ve been using this app for at least a year, never had issues, but the update that was recently done is awful. The game freezes every time I Hit submit after the daily puzzle and for a normal level. Yesterday there was no daily reward/gift but then today there is yet no new update. Please fix at its very annoying to exit out the game after solving a puzzle every time. Was a great game before the update. Think there is a bug in the update. You guys said you were working on it and it has been two weeks. Can we get an update on when it might be fixed?

Since the last update the app doesn’t move forward each time you solve a puzzle, so never get past the daily challenge. I deleted the app, rebooted my iPad and reinstalled the app. I lost the games I had played, and after approximately ten games I have the same issue.

Please Help!
by Of Hunter on 2020/06/20 21:01
I’ve been playing this game every morning, along with several other Mobility games, as part of my “get my brain up and running” session. Until recently, that is. I’ve reached puzzle #1974, and have enjoyed the various themes made available for my choice. Until they weren’t made available any more. The last 31 times I’ve completed a theme and should have had choice of a new theme, I was limited to choosing either “Places” or “1990’s.” In fact, the last 10 times, I wasn’t given a choice. The windows said “Theme 1” and “Places.” Tapping “Theme 1” got no response, so those last ten times I played “Places.” As a final frustration, now the theme never completes. Every puzzle that comes up is “The Eiffel Tower in Paris.” Scout’s honor. I’ve finally given up. All I play is the daily puzzle. I tell you sincerely that Word Search has been my favorite word puzzle until these bizarre things started occurring. I surely hope you can straighten this out. Oh, one more thing: I’ve intermittently had the black screen problem that other players have mentioned. Not lately, though. Just “The Eiffel Tower in Paris” over and over and over.........
Love it but Question

Every morning I play this game to wake up my mind. This is very important for older people to keep sharp and active. Each game is different which causes you to learn new words. I highly recommend this game as one of the best word games to play. Also important is there are not really too many annoying advertising. Download it and play a few games. You will agree with me about the 5 stars.

Initially great
by Another grader on 2020/04/12 15:02
This app was initially very fun with 5 decades to choose from in the categories plus books, authors and places. After playing for a few weeks, the categories are limited to one decade (2010), books, and places. In addition, the app really saps battery life. This would be a 5 star app if the category options remained intact and the battery usage were corrected.
It was awesome at first
by Kimberly Southward on 2020/04/11 14:30
I'm the beginning ok was absolutely addicted. I really enjoy word games and loved that I got to choose my categories. I'm currently level 2030. I was happy until the last 25 categories or so. I no longer have a choice is places or nothing. This game has quickly gone from being my favorite game and me telling everyone about it, to being boring and more often than not I only open it to play the daily puzzle. I'm very disappointed in how this turned out and I'm seriously considering just deleting the game. I keep holding out hope that they'll update but that hope it's fading.

I really love this game. However, recently the screen goes black when I’m done watching a commercial. In order to get the game back up, have to turn my iPhone 6s off.

Love the game but that is all i get is the first game only before it freezes on my ipad. It has something to do with your ads but i am unable to correct. Must wait hours if not a day before able to play another one game. If not fixed will deleteas very frustrating.
Intermittent Fun
by vavia on 2020/04/04 07:22
The game is really fun! The problem is the interminable ads. I dread them popping up, which is quite often. They are long and force you to watch for as long as 30 sounds before yo can x it back to the game. I would give this 5 stars if I had the option to pay in order to get rid of the ads.
Great game!
by Gah9110 on 2020/04/03 11:41
UPDATE: spoke a little too soon, whoops lol I’m also experiencing the black screen issue it seems, isn’t a huge deal but a little annoying. The problem seems to be when screen rotation isn’t locked and if I’m laying in bed for example and roll over, the black screen will appear after my screen is rotated from portrait to landscape. Loving this game so far! I have bad anxiety I’m always looking for games that are put my brain to use but not so much that it makes my anxiety worse. This seems to do the tricks and best of all, the ads aren’t as intrusive as some other games. Can’t wait to keep playing!
I like the game itself but . . .
by Sam Spayed PI on 2020/03/20 07:41
I like the game itself. Fun and interesting puzzles. Even with the more obscure titles, I can usually guess correctly within the bonus limit. While there are advertising videos, they typically play between rounds; or in the middle of a round only when you’ve left the app for some reason. And the ads usually may be fast- forwarded (cut short) after a few seconds; you rarely have to sit through a 30 second ad. Three is a serious bug, though. More often than not after an ad plays, the screen goes dark instead of going back to the game. And when I say “more often than not” I mean it quite literally; more than half the time you won’t be returned to the next game after watching the ad. You have to close the app and reopen it; not that it’s too terrible a chore, but it does get quite annoying.
This would be fun except...
by Lr1971 on 2020/03/08 22:04
The program keeps going black and has to be turned off cleared off my phone and restarted. In the category for famous people I tried to solve one by guessing Johnny Depp. Not hard to spell but once entered it told me I was wrong. After the next attempt which told me I was wrong I continued thinking I was way off. By the way my spelling was accurate. I played on and with only one letter missing, the Second P in Depp, I pushed the solve button and it finally took the answer. Keep in mind, I’m not saying that I don’t ever make mistakes and hit the wrong button on the keyboard but I did not this time. Once it didn’t accept the first try to solve I double checked my spelling and it was spot on. I would say this game needs a lot of work to fix bugs. I love Mobility Ware games but this needs more work.
Great Twist!!!
by cmasgirl on 2019/11/20 00:24
I just loaded this game less than a week ago and I already love it!! You’ve taken one of my favorite games and twisted it into a new favorite!! I think I’m on the 5th pack and I started playing yesterday. Very relaxing word game. I’ve always been hooked on word games and I still do the puzzles in a book 📖!! Thank you for this new approach to an already great game!! Your team is quite amazing. I also play your solitaire games including castle, crown and a few others not to forget Mahjong!!! I have enjoyed every game that I have downloaded from your team!!! Happy Thanksgiving 🦃 and Merry Christmas 🎄!!! You deserve them 😊
Please Help!
by Of Hunter on 2020/06/20 21:01
I’ve been playing this game every morning, along with several other Mobility games, as part of my “get my brain up and running” session. Until recently, that is. I’ve reached puzzle #1974, and have enjoyed the various themes made available for my choice. Until they weren’t made available any more. The last 31 times I’ve completed a theme and should have had choice of a new theme, I was limited to choosing either “Places” or “1990’s.” In fact, the last 10 times, I wasn’t given a choice. The windows said “Theme 1” and “Places.” Tapping “Theme 1” got no response, so those last ten times I played “Places.” As a final frustration, now the theme never completes. Every puzzle that comes up is “The Eiffel Tower in Paris.” Scout’s honor. I’ve finally given up. All I play is the daily puzzle. I tell you sincerely that Word Search has been my favorite word puzzle until these bizarre things started occurring. I surely hope you can straighten this out. Oh, one more thing: I’ve intermittently had the black screen problem that other players have mentioned. Not lately, though. Just “The Eiffel Tower in Paris” over and over and over.........
I need help!
by Bergscoot on 2020/04/01 22:14
I’ve been playing this game for quite a while and love it! For the past couple weeks, after I play one round, usually after the daily puzzle, the screen goes black and I can’t get it to restart. Getting out and back in, doesn’t help. I usually just quit & try the next day. I finally just quit playing 4-5 days ago. Thought I’d try again today, with the same results. I thought maybe I’d try to delete the app & reload. That’s when I saw other complaints. I have an Ipad, probably 3 yrs old. I have 6 other MobilityWare apps that I play every day with no problems. Help!
Word search
by southern Norway on 2020/02/12 02:06
Lot’s of fun yet difficult categories as I believe some things are not necessarily correct. I still love the challenge! I finished the game with over 2000 questions. It is clearly the best game ever! So I downloaded it again and hope that new questions are added. There are a few minor glitches, but nothing to stop e from enjoying challenging myself. 10 stars !! Several misspelled question. For example: the old man and the sea is spelled incorrectly as old mank and the sea. This type of error uses up many points. I have found 6 such errors. Still love the best game available 😘
God I love this game thank you so much
by Runningskunk53 on 2020/06/10 04:36
Thank you so much for making a game that you don’t have to buy in app purchases it’s very easy and makes me feel smarter when I can solve it before 6 moves or less thank you so much it makes me feel smarter, thank you again for listening to me and making it better I was getting a little bored but now you made the game better thank you, I don’t know how to reply back to you all but thank you so much for listening to me and replying back to me
Fun concept!
by jetcogs on 2019/12/01 04:13
I don’t normally enjoy this particular type of word game because they’re usually too dull. But adding the twist of trying to uncover and solve phrases adds a strategy hook that these apps normally lack. The game skews very easy for my tastes but there’s an upside to that, it makes it good to relax with. I recently had a trial subscription to Apple Arcade which I cancelled because I couldn’t find any games worth keeping a subscription for. But this game is better than anything I found on Apple Arcade. I would have given this game five stars but I had a deduct a star because it has an incomplete dictionary. I always test these games to see if they will accept certain “adult” words and this one clearly has some limitations. When I have the letters on the board for a word that will give me a blank tile or potentially reveal much needed letters in the hidden phrase, preventing me from using that word due to unnecessary censorship detracts from the gameplay.
Fun Game
by Shtufffff on 2019/12/17 12:15
This is a fun game, however, it would be much better if there were an option to remove ads. In response to the reply I received: ‘ Please consider that our studio relies on the revenue from ads so that we can fund the development of our free games and updates. Our Support team is ready to help if you ever experience any technical issues, and we can be reached through the in-game Support page. Thanks again for your feedback!" I have played plenty of other free games that also rely on the revenue from ads to help further the development of their free games and updates as well. That being said, they all have provided an option for the player to pay $0.99-$1.99 in order to have the ads removed to avoid the overwhelming amount of ads that constantly interrupt gameplay. That $0.99-$1.99 option is something that needs to be considered for the future. I know this doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, but because of this inability to be able to prevent the ads from being forced upon me I will no longer be playing this game, and have removed it from my phone.
Mistake!
by Pam Schmith on 2019/12/07 18:18
I would have given this game 5 stars but I found an error in it. In the category Authors & Books, thete’s an error in the Ernest Hemmingway puzzle. One of the puzzles included an extra letter that did not belong. The answer “The Old Mand And The Sea” should be “The Old Man And The Sea”. I know it’s only 1 letter but it does make the puzzle confusing for the players. Other than this error, it’s a great game! I just brought this to your attention because there could possibly be other errors I haven’t found yet. As I said, it’s a great game and I would play other apps if you guys have any!
Major battery hog!!
by tab1075 on 2019/11/21 12:47
I’ve been playing Mobilityware’s version of solitaire for years. This game popped up in one of its ads, looked fun, so I gave it a try and have been playing for about a week. First complaint, this isn’t like Wheel of Fortune style. If you get a correct letter, it will not reveal ALL of that same letter in the puzzle, which is a ploy to cause you to make more moves. But the worst problem of all is battery usage. To say this app is a battery drain is a huge understatement. I just finished playing for 5-10 minutes and it literally drained my battery about 25%. It’s like that every time I play. It’s so bad, it’s not worth using, so I’ll have to delete an otherwise decent game.
Great for word improvement
by grim couch on 2020/04/21 20:36
Every morning I play this game to wake up my mind. This is very important for older people to keep sharp and active. Each game is different which causes you to learn new words. I highly recommend this game as one of the best word games to play. Also important is there are not really too many annoying advertising. Download it and play a few games. You will agree with me about the 5 stars.
Developer Spelling Error!
by Caliornia Girl on 2019/11/25 16:36
I’ve been playing this game for a week now and have found a spelling error. I am in the category “Famous U.S Cities” and the answer is obviously San Francisco, California. By move #2 I knew what the answer was. I tried 5+ times completing the puzzle until I started to lose my mind. The app kept saying my answer was wrong. I even had my husband check my spelling and he saw it was correctly spelled. By move 15, I finally saw the issue.. THE APP SPELLED CALIFORNIA WRONG! The app spelled California like this, “ Califorina” Pretty ironic a word game can’t spell.. I did not receive a second star because of the developers error. Seems someone in the developing department needs to go back to 4th grade.
Great but could use improvements
by curlykaty on 2019/11/19 04:11
I love the concept of this game but one issue I have is the categories. While I like the idea of being able to pick what I want to do, I would love to have all of the categories split up where we can select a certain category and complete all puzzles in it, rather than spinning for a new one. I’m very much a completionist, so being able to complete one category and move on would be ideal. Aside from that and the ads (which aren’t bad at all, they’re very quick), this game is great!
Fun game but rewards system needs work
by Fjordhorses on 2019/12/11 01:04
I am enjoying this game quite a bit. In fact it is becoming addictive. However, my biggest complaint is the method for awarding bonus stars. A quick solve is not rewarded appropriately. For example, I think that if you are able to complete a puzzle in say, within three of an allowed twelve moves, the rewards should reflect that and give the remaining nine as the bonus star quantity. It just doesn’t seem to be an adequate reward as it stands only ever giving two stars.
It was awesome at first
by Kimberly Southward on 2020/04/11 14:30
I'm the beginning ok was absolutely addicted. I really enjoy word games and loved that I got to choose my categories. I'm currently level 2030. I was happy until the last 25 categories or so. I no longer have a choice is places or nothing. This game has quickly gone from being my favorite game and me telling everyone about it, to being boring and more often than not I only open it to play the daily puzzle. I'm very disappointed in how this turned out and I'm seriously considering just deleting the game. I keep holding out hope that they'll update but that hope it's fading.
Great fun once the crashing is fixed
by MeetRef on 2020/03/29 15:30
I like this game because it utilizes word search strategy (tiles move when letters are used so you have to find a word to make but also keep in mind what will shift once that word is made) and you get to pick from suggested topics. It is like Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Trivial Pursuit, and WordFul have been combined into just one game. So I am going to hang in there and hope that the crashing is fixed soon.
Fixed! Thank you!
by Bonzo25 on 2020/03/21 21:42
Love this game! It’s been one of my all time favs! Unfortunately a few weeks ago after every add it goes black and I can’t play without turning my phone off and on. To delete and download makes you start over. I’d rather pay a fee to avoid adds. Would be 5 stars, but because I can’t play continually I’ll rate at 3 and that’s only because I really do love playing this game 😢
Great idea with a few bugs
by ujitfiokngk on 2019/11/24 00:45
I really like this game but I found the hint part very annoying. I didn’t need the hints at all. Also the ads made my iPad keep freezing up and I couldn’t get out of the ad without rebooting. This happened so often I had to finally delete the game. None of my other games did this. I would still be playing if it weren’t for that. Good idea for a game, but maybe give easy, medium and hard options? Just a thought. Thank you.
Finally! Something a bit different
by Danni Loves Puzzles on 2020/01/25 18:13
So I just started playing, and it has been pretty easy, but I can see how it could become increasingly challenging. Not just a word search. Find words in the grid, then the found letters randomly populate the phrase that must be completed to move to the next puzzle. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼this becomes more difficult.
Okay game. Keeps me occupied.
by goldenbubbles on 2020/03/20 07:49
I have only been playing a little over a week and can’t stop playing. It it like word search and wheel of fortune rolled in to one. The only thing I don’t like about the game is having the same categories over and over. Additional info. I keep getting the same themes, Books and Authors and places. This has been my choices for the last six levels. Before that there were decades over and over. Not liking game as much as before. This is why I Sam changing my review.
Fun game with a huge, annoying flaw!
by MelissaL55 on 2019/11/15 02:36
Really enjoy the finding of words in a grid, and solving the phrase puzzles. However, the “hint” feature is unnecessary and grossly distracting. My favorite part of the game is finding the best possible words. It’s not timed, but if no word is entered very quickly, hints (or suggestions) keep popping up...always short and dull words easily found by oneself...which I find insulting and annoying. I haven’t yet found a way to disable this. I’m still playing, but my irritation grows stronger with each game.
New update crap
by Peacock67809 on 2020/07/10 12:09
I’ve been using this app for at least a year, never had issues, but the update that was recently done is awful. The game freezes every time I Hit submit after the daily puzzle and for a normal level. Yesterday there was no daily reward/gift but then today there is yet no new update. Please fix at its very annoying to exit out the game after solving a puzzle every time. Was a great game before the update. Think there is a bug in the update. You guys said you were working on it and it has been two weeks. Can we get an update on when it might be fixed?
Love the game, but
by Kissmyelephant on 2020/05/15 20:49
While playing, the screen will go black or it goes back to my home screen. When I try to go back to the game I will have the same black screen or it will be frozen. This happens after playing 5-8 games in a row. After an hour or 2, I can start again. Too many games played in a row?
LOVE 💗 BUT...
by Nancybea316 🐝 on 2020/03/19 16:29
Do LOVE THIS GAME VERY MUCH, however I would love to change the 3 ⭐️’s to 5 but.... the game has this weird glitch; THAT after EACH AND EVERY SINGLE AD the screen goes black and won’t come back??!! Until I refresh, which I HAVE TO DO EACH AND EVERY TIME!!!!! That’s crazy and extremely ANNOYING!!! Aside from this weird glitch it’s a truly GREAT GAME!!! Love this company have several of their games happy with all!!! Developers I do hope you can FIX this bump in the road!? Thank you!! I will change this rating the moment it’s fixed!
Love game
by pudn602 on 2020/03/14 17:22
I really love this game it keeps my mind sharp. The only thing that irritates me: I’m in the 1800’s because I’ve seemed to have completed all the subjects now my only choice is “places”. I wouldn’t care if I had to repeat other subjects. This game is a lot of fun but if this is what will continue to happen after 1800 games. I’m going to delete app and move onto something else. Please fix it so I may continue to play my favorite game.
Love Words! So love your game!
by Katie Caldwell on 2019/12/06 02:07
Thank you for creating one of the best in word games. Your Word Search and Words2 are my two favorite games. Other games do not hold my interest for long. I just downloaded Word Search two weeks ago and look forward to playing it each day. Thank you! Please keep creating fun, interesting and challenging Word games.
Problem
by 10 cylinders on 2020/07/07 21:49
Since the last update the app doesn’t move forward each time you solve a puzzle, so never get past the daily challenge. I deleted the app, rebooted my iPad and reinstalled the app. I lost the games I had played, and after approximately ten games I have the same issue.
Black screen
by Mytapestry on 2020/06/28 17:09
I played this game for many months without any issues. Recently it has started going to black screen after I complete the daily puzzle. Have reinstalled, but issue continues. This WAS my favorite game.... Update: This issue was finally resolved. Now you’ve updated the game. First game played, it has frozen on the solve screen. Soooooooooo frustrating!!
Pretty good game
by Angelwriter214 on 2020/01/05 02:07
Overall it’s a pretty good game but the one thing that has driven me crazy about it is that not all things are categorized correctly. An example would be under TV Shows the puzzle would end up being Bayside High School. That’s not the TV show though. The show is Saved By The Bell. Or actors names would be under TV shows. It’s a good game but some of these need to be categorized better.

Like the game and don’t mind the short ads BUT you’re going to have to get rid of the loooong ads or you’ll get rid of me. Since I don’t generate any income it will likely be me that’s gone. I’ll give it 2 weeks. Thanks for your reply. In fact these are the first and so far only time I’ve run across this problem. If it happens again I will get back to you with the name of the company and other details.
Really enjoying
by Ladylisa23 on 2019/11/29 23:57
I am really enjoying this game. I like how there are two categories that you can choose from. Also, as with any game, there are ads. The game’s ads only last a few seconds before you can exit them. That’s a bonus for me...short ads!!
More categories please!
by Momocat101 on 2019/12/26 23:32
I’ve recently started playing this game and LOVE it...... but you really need to add more categories. When it spins, it consistently goes to the 2000’s and places more often than any other categories. It was VERY limited on the t0’s and 70’s and no matter how many commercials I watch, it hasn’t come up again in weeks. Still, really enjoy this game immensely.
Like the game, hate the flashing hints
by amsh0 on 2020/02/26 16:53
I really like the game, but there seems to be a lot of unnecessary animation. And the flashing hints are more stressful than helpful - feels like I'm being rushed when the reason I'm playing a game in the first place is to try to relax and take a break from something. Would love the option to turn off this feature - bc honestly I usually end up getting too annoyed to keep playing.
Black screen
by Mousie1122 on 2020/04/02 15:55
Love this game but in the last few days, the screen goes black between puzzles. The only way to fix it is to power off the device. I just did that, then it went black after only one puzzle. Please fix it. I also deleted the app and reinstalled it. Same problem. I have an iPhone 8s
Fun and enjoyable.....but
by TheOldRanger on 2020/03/12 19:27
I really enjoy this, but when I got going, the screen on my iPad went black. I turned everything off, rebooted, but I couldn’t remove the black screen. I deleted the game and had to wait several days before the game was available again. Hope it doesn’t black out on me again
* Update *
by KDReetz0831 on 2020/03/18 17:28
I was having issues with the game crashing after each video ad, but that has been fixed! I really love this game. It’s challenging, but not frustrating. The biggest problem is I find myself playing too much!!
Want to give 5 but.....
by 2 SWM KDZ on 2020/07/10 19:05
Was going great. Now I play a game and it never progresses past the submit after I solve the puzzle. Just sits there. Want to love it but till it is fixed I will move on to another one and check in to see if they have corrected the issue Is fun and makes you think just fails at the end

Stuck on same puzzle/answer
by Sellinellen on 2020/06/01 03:33
Got stuck on Brie Larson for about 40 something times and would not advance. I had about 970+ games completed before it seemed to fixate on the captain marvel! ?? I played the daily puzzle but then deleted app. I reached out to support but they really don’t care. Just out my time is all. Didn’t pay for it. I enjoyed it very much before that. Nothing against Brie!
Great Fun and Educational
by jamesharris05 on 2019/12/09 01:29
Within 24 hours of downloading I’ve played over 100 puzzles. It is addictive from the music and sound effects to the testing of knowledge. I highly recommend this game to those that enjoy word puzzles and can appreciate a well made app.
Blank screen
by MDZvara on 2020/04/15 15:44
When playing the game and after a few games it goes to a ad. When ad is done when I exit some times it goes to a blank screen and I lose connection. Other than that I love the app and game. Marilyn
Not too bad
by Kels42 on 2019/11/19 20:28
I enjoy it when I need something to pass the time and it’s one of the better word search type games I’ve played. I do want to let the developers know that there is a misspelling in one of the phrases under the Ernest Hemingway category, just an FYI. I ended up missing out on an extra star because I couldn’t find the rouge letter that got attached to the end of “man” in the phrase.
Challenging and fun
by SC low country on 2020/04/21 05:13
Absolutely love playing this. The clues are great . Finding the answer with as little letters turned is challenging but fun. Love the different areas of topics. I learn something’s as I play. So glad I downloaded it. Would love to have other puzzles like this. Great thing is....it’s absolutely free!
Initially great
by Another grader on 2020/04/12 15:02
This app was initially very fun with 5 decades to choose from in the categories plus books, authors and places. After playing for a few weeks, the categories are limited to one decade (2010), books, and places. In addition, the app really saps battery life. This would be a 5 star app if the category options remained intact and the battery usage were corrected.
Ads screw it up
by calmincense on 2020/03/23 21:23
The ads wouldn’t be such an issue, BUT, all the video type ads won’t close properly so I have to completely close the program and reopen to get back to the game. I’m not going to do this for long, I’ll quit playing. Plz fix this bug. The game itself is one of the better word games. No timer, so no stress lol, the content is relevant, and it’s very fun.
Entertaining but...
by Boo in AZ on 2020/02/27 01:31
I enjoy this, however, there are many spelling and even phrase errors. I know they have been reported by many but never get fixed. It would also be more challenging if there were more types of categories. I like others would pay for an add free option like almost every other game in the universe offers.

This game has big problems with freezing and crashing. I do enjoy the game, but the issues are a real pain in the butt. They need to update the app.
Was a great game
by Scrensh on 2020/09/28 05:51
It’s a great game but the last few weeks it has been freezing after I complete a puzzle on my iPhone. I’m not ok with having to close the game and reopen it, I’d just as soon not play it. I’ve sent in screenshots numerous times and still no solution for it. UPDATE: I finally had to delete the app and reinstall. Now I have lost all my data. I’m really upset about this, I want my progress back!
I love the game, but..

Good Game
by Salina7 on 2020/09/05 22:43
It’s a fun Game. Most of the Ads are quick. One Ad for Panda Pop would not go away. Very annoying. When you touched the screen hoping to find an X it would take you to the App Store to purchase. I had to quit the game. I had to reinstall the game on a new phone end it started all over with puzzle one. I was on 600 and something. Very disappointing

Great concept but a little too buggy for me (it unpredictably hangs) and the ads get tiresome. Too bad I liked the game in general.
Bug
by wilkymom5 on 2020/08/24 16:29
Used to love this game, now it won’t play after you solve the puzzle it does nothing. Must be a bug.
Great game, amazing service
by Wxhtuop on 2020/08/22 13:28
First, this is a terrific game that never makes you spend money to play, although you can pay to get rid of the ads. I don’t mind them. If you like to play Wheel of Fortune, you will enjoy this. A couple of days ago I posted a complaint and a 1 star review because it had developed a terrible bug . (I’m leaving that review below in case anyone has the same issue.). Someone from MobilityWare got back to me within 24 hours and told me they were working on it. Within another 24 hours, the game was running flawlessly. Responsive, competent service is very rare in the digital world. I would give them six stars if I could. ————- MY PREVIOUS REVIEW IN CASE YOU HAVE TGE SAME ISSUE: If it wasn’t for the bug, I’d give it at least 4 stars. I had been playing and enjoying this game. However after an update, the screen began freezing so badly after each win that I had to power off my phone entirely to unfreeze the game. A reinstall fixed it temporarily but it wiped out all my data and accumulated boosters. Then it developed a variation on the same bug. When I play the game of the day and hit solve, it freezes after the win. It doesn’t go dark, but I can’t get to another game. If my answer was incorrect, it won’t let me try again. It superimposes a letter grid over the “solve” keyboard, but won’t let me use either. I’ve given up. If I go back the next day the game will have unfrozen and I can play the game of the day, but that’s it. It’s not worth the frustration to try to continue. When it’s working: If you enjoy watching Wheel of Fortune, you will enjoy this game. The best thing about this game is that it’s truly free. You are never asked to buy anything in order to play . There’s an ad before every game, but I can live with that. Just research the company before you click on the link. They are of uneven quality. Also I was glad to see that they expanded their categories. It used to be mostly pop culture with some literature and geography. Over the summer they added variety. But I never see any of those categories any more because of the bug.
I love it

I downloaded this app about a week ago. I was really enjoying it when all of a sudden the app started freezing up after each win. It is no fun to have to reload an app every minute or so. Too bad. Maybe I’ll try it again in a few weeks - hopefully this bug will be fixed.

This game keeps freezing up. Too many advertisements that knock me out of the game then I have to start over. Advertisement is the worst I have seen on most free games! Not worth the download!

I agree with Lr971. Each time I solve a puzzle, it goes to an ad. Whether I watch the entire ad or fast forward, a black screen appears and I have to close app and restart on iPad. I really enjoy this game, however I’m about to delete it and forget it!

New update crap
by Peacock67809 on 2020/07/10 12:09
I’ve been using this app for at least a year, never had issues, but the update that was recently done is awful. The game freezes every time I Hit submit after the daily puzzle and for a normal level. Yesterday there was no daily reward/gift but then today there is yet no new update. Please fix at its very annoying to exit out the game after solving a puzzle every time. Was a great game before the update. Think there is a bug in the update. You guys said you were working on it and it has been two weeks. Can we get an update on when it might be fixed?

Please Help!
by Of Hunter on 2020/06/20 21:01
I’ve been playing this game every morning, along with several other Mobility games, as part of my “get my brain up and running” session. Until recently, that is. I’ve reached puzzle #1974, and have enjoyed the various themes made available for my choice. Until they weren’t made available any more. The last 31 times I’ve completed a theme and should have had choice of a new theme, I was limited to choosing either “Places” or “1990’s.” In fact, the last 10 times, I wasn’t given a choice. The windows said “Theme 1” and “Places.” Tapping “Theme 1” got no response, so those last ten times I played “Places.” As a final frustration, now the theme never completes. Every puzzle that comes up is “The Eiffel Tower in Paris.” Scout’s honor. I’ve finally given up. All I play is the daily puzzle. I tell you sincerely that Word Search has been my favorite word puzzle until these bizarre things started occurring. I surely hope you can straighten this out. Oh, one more thing: I’ve intermittently had the black screen problem that other players have mentioned. Not lately, though. Just “The Eiffel Tower in Paris” over and over and over.........

Every morning I play this game to wake up my mind. This is very important for older people to keep sharp and active. Each game is different which causes you to learn new words. I highly recommend this game as one of the best word games to play. Also important is there are not really too many annoying advertising. Download it and play a few games. You will agree with me about the 5 stars.

Initially great
by Another grader on 2020/04/12 15:02
This app was initially very fun with 5 decades to choose from in the categories plus books, authors and places. After playing for a few weeks, the categories are limited to one decade (2010), books, and places. In addition, the app really saps battery life. This would be a 5 star app if the category options remained intact and the battery usage were corrected.
It was awesome at first
by Kimberly Southward on 2020/04/11 14:30
I'm the beginning ok was absolutely addicted. I really enjoy word games and loved that I got to choose my categories. I'm currently level 2030. I was happy until the last 25 categories or so. I no longer have a choice is places or nothing. This game has quickly gone from being my favorite game and me telling everyone about it, to being boring and more often than not I only open it to play the daily puzzle. I'm very disappointed in how this turned out and I'm seriously considering just deleting the game. I keep holding out hope that they'll update but that hope it's fading.

The game is really fun! The problem is the interminable ads. I dread them popping up, which is quite often. They are long and force you to watch for as long as 30 sounds before yo can x it back to the game. I would give this 5 stars if I had the option to pay in order to get rid of the ads.

UPDATE: spoke a little too soon, whoops lol I’m also experiencing the black screen issue it seems, isn’t a huge deal but a little annoying. The problem seems to be when screen rotation isn’t locked and if I’m laying in bed for example and roll over, the black screen will appear after my screen is rotated from portrait to landscape. Loving this game so far! I have bad anxiety I’m always looking for games that are put my brain to use but not so much that it makes my anxiety worse. This seems to do the tricks and best of all, the ads aren’t as intrusive as some other games. Can’t wait to keep playing!

While there are advertising videos, they typically play between rounds; or in the middle of a round only when you’ve left the app for some reason. And the ads usually may be fast- forwarded (cut short) after a few seconds; you rarely have to sit through a 30 second ad. Three is a serious bug, though. More often than not after an ad plays, the screen goes dark instead of going back to the game. And when I say “more often than not” I mean it quite literally; more than half the time you won’t be returned to the next game after watching the ad. You have to close the app and reopen it; not that it’s too terrible a chore, but it does get quite annoying.
This would be fun except...

The program keeps going black and has to be turned off cleared off my phone and restarted. In the category for famous people I tried to solve one by guessing Johnny Depp. Not hard to spell but once entered it told me I was wrong. After the next attempt which told me I was wrong I continued thinking I was way off. By the way my spelling was accurate. I played on and with only one letter missing, the Second P in Depp, I pushed the solve button and it finally took the answer. Keep in mind, I’m not saying that I don’t ever make mistakes and hit the wrong button on the keyboard but I did not this time. Once it didn’t accept the first try to solve I double checked my spelling and it was spot on. I would say this game needs a lot of work to fix bugs. I love Mobility Ware games but this needs more work.
Great Twist!!!
by cmasgirl on 2019/11/20 00:24
I just loaded this game less than a week ago and I already love it!! You’ve taken one of my favorite games and twisted it into a new favorite!! I think I’m on the 5th pack and I started playing yesterday. Very relaxing word game. I’ve always been hooked on word games and I still do the puzzles in a book 📖!! Thank you for this new approach to an already great game!! Your team is quite amazing. I also play your solitaire games including castle, crown and a few others not to forget Mahjong!!! I have enjoyed every game that I have downloaded from your team!!! Happy Thanksgiving 🦃 and Merry Christmas 🎄!!! You deserve them 😊
Please Help!

I’ve been playing this game every morning, along with several other Mobility games, as part of my “get my brain up and running” session. Until recently, that is. I’ve reached puzzle #1974, and have enjoyed the various themes made available for my choice. Until they weren’t made available any more. The last 31 times I’ve completed a theme and should have had choice of a new theme, I was limited to choosing either “Places” or “1990’s.” In fact, the last 10 times, I wasn’t given a choice. The windows said “Theme 1” and “Places.” Tapping “Theme 1” got no response, so those last ten times I played “Places.” As a final frustration, now the theme never completes. Every puzzle that comes up is “The Eiffel Tower in Paris.” Scout’s honor. I’ve finally given up. All I play is the daily puzzle. I tell you sincerely that Word Search has been my favorite word puzzle until these bizarre things started occurring. I surely hope you can straighten this out. Oh, one more thing: I’ve intermittently had the black screen problem that other players have mentioned. Not lately, though. Just “The Eiffel Tower in Paris” over and over and over.........
I need help!
by Bergscoot on 2020/04/01 22:14
I’ve been playing this game for quite a while and love it! For the past couple weeks, after I play one round, usually after the daily puzzle, the screen goes black and I can’t get it to restart. Getting out and back in, doesn’t help. I usually just quit & try the next day. I finally just quit playing 4-5 days ago. Thought I’d try again today, with the same results. I thought maybe I’d try to delete the app & reload. That’s when I saw other complaints. I have an Ipad, probably 3 yrs old. I have 6 other MobilityWare apps that I play every day with no problems. Help!
Word search
by southern Norway on 2020/02/12 02:06
Lot’s of fun yet difficult categories as I believe some things are not necessarily correct. I still love the challenge! I finished the game with over 2000 questions. It is clearly the best game ever! So I downloaded it again and hope that new questions are added. There are a few minor glitches, but nothing to stop e from enjoying challenging myself. 10 stars !! Several misspelled question. For example: the old man and the sea is spelled incorrectly as old mank and the sea. This type of error uses up many points. I have found 6 such errors. Still love the best game available 😘
God I love this game thank you so much
by Runningskunk53 on 2020/06/10 04:36
Thank you so much for making a game that you don’t have to buy in app purchases it’s very easy and makes me feel smarter when I can solve it before 6 moves or less thank you so much it makes me feel smarter, thank you again for listening to me and making it better I was getting a little bored but now you made the game better thank you, I don’t know how to reply back to you all but thank you so much for listening to me and replying back to me
Fun concept!
by jetcogs on 2019/12/01 04:13
I don’t normally enjoy this particular type of word game because they’re usually too dull. But adding the twist of trying to uncover and solve phrases adds a strategy hook that these apps normally lack. The game skews very easy for my tastes but there’s an upside to that, it makes it good to relax with. I recently had a trial subscription to Apple Arcade which I cancelled because I couldn’t find any games worth keeping a subscription for. But this game is better than anything I found on Apple Arcade. I would have given this game five stars but I had a deduct a star because it has an incomplete dictionary. I always test these games to see if they will accept certain “adult” words and this one clearly has some limitations. When I have the letters on the board for a word that will give me a blank tile or potentially reveal much needed letters in the hidden phrase, preventing me from using that word due to unnecessary censorship detracts from the gameplay.
Fun Game
by Shtufffff on 2019/12/17 12:15
This is a fun game, however, it would be much better if there were an option to remove ads. In response to the reply I received: ‘ Please consider that our studio relies on the revenue from ads so that we can fund the development of our free games and updates. Our Support team is ready to help if you ever experience any technical issues, and we can be reached through the in-game Support page. Thanks again for your feedback!" I have played plenty of other free games that also rely on the revenue from ads to help further the development of their free games and updates as well. That being said, they all have provided an option for the player to pay $0.99-$1.99 in order to have the ads removed to avoid the overwhelming amount of ads that constantly interrupt gameplay. That $0.99-$1.99 option is something that needs to be considered for the future. I know this doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, but because of this inability to be able to prevent the ads from being forced upon me I will no longer be playing this game, and have removed it from my phone.
Mistake!
by Pam Schmith on 2019/12/07 18:18
I would have given this game 5 stars but I found an error in it. In the category Authors & Books, thete’s an error in the Ernest Hemmingway puzzle. One of the puzzles included an extra letter that did not belong. The answer “The Old Mand And The Sea” should be “The Old Man And The Sea”. I know it’s only 1 letter but it does make the puzzle confusing for the players. Other than this error, it’s a great game! I just brought this to your attention because there could possibly be other errors I haven’t found yet. As I said, it’s a great game and I would play other apps if you guys have any!
Major battery hog!!
by tab1075 on 2019/11/21 12:47
I’ve been playing Mobilityware’s version of solitaire for years. This game popped up in one of its ads, looked fun, so I gave it a try and have been playing for about a week. First complaint, this isn’t like Wheel of Fortune style. If you get a correct letter, it will not reveal ALL of that same letter in the puzzle, which is a ploy to cause you to make more moves. But the worst problem of all is battery usage. To say this app is a battery drain is a huge understatement. I just finished playing for 5-10 minutes and it literally drained my battery about 25%. It’s like that every time I play. It’s so bad, it’s not worth using, so I’ll have to delete an otherwise decent game.
Great for word improvement
by grim couch on 2020/04/21 20:36
Every morning I play this game to wake up my mind. This is very important for older people to keep sharp and active. Each game is different which causes you to learn new words. I highly recommend this game as one of the best word games to play. Also important is there are not really too many annoying advertising. Download it and play a few games. You will agree with me about the 5 stars.
Developer Spelling Error!
by Caliornia Girl on 2019/11/25 16:36
I’ve been playing this game for a week now and have found a spelling error. I am in the category “Famous U.S Cities” and the answer is obviously San Francisco, California. By move #2 I knew what the answer was. I tried 5+ times completing the puzzle until I started to lose my mind. The app kept saying my answer was wrong. I even had my husband check my spelling and he saw it was correctly spelled. By move 15, I finally saw the issue.. THE APP SPELLED CALIFORNIA WRONG! The app spelled California like this, “ Califorina” Pretty ironic a word game can’t spell.. I did not receive a second star because of the developers error. Seems someone in the developing department needs to go back to 4th grade.
Great but could use improvements
by curlykaty on 2019/11/19 04:11
I love the concept of this game but one issue I have is the categories. While I like the idea of being able to pick what I want to do, I would love to have all of the categories split up where we can select a certain category and complete all puzzles in it, rather than spinning for a new one. I’m very much a completionist, so being able to complete one category and move on would be ideal. Aside from that and the ads (which aren’t bad at all, they’re very quick), this game is great!
Fun game but rewards system needs work
by Fjordhorses on 2019/12/11 01:04
I am enjoying this game quite a bit. In fact it is becoming addictive. However, my biggest complaint is the method for awarding bonus stars. A quick solve is not rewarded appropriately. For example, I think that if you are able to complete a puzzle in say, within three of an allowed twelve moves, the rewards should reflect that and give the remaining nine as the bonus star quantity. It just doesn’t seem to be an adequate reward as it stands only ever giving two stars.
It was awesome at first
by Kimberly Southward on 2020/04/11 14:30
I'm the beginning ok was absolutely addicted. I really enjoy word games and loved that I got to choose my categories. I'm currently level 2030. I was happy until the last 25 categories or so. I no longer have a choice is places or nothing. This game has quickly gone from being my favorite game and me telling everyone about it, to being boring and more often than not I only open it to play the daily puzzle. I'm very disappointed in how this turned out and I'm seriously considering just deleting the game. I keep holding out hope that they'll update but that hope it's fading.
Great fun once the crashing is fixed
by MeetRef on 2020/03/29 15:30
I like this game because it utilizes word search strategy (tiles move when letters are used so you have to find a word to make but also keep in mind what will shift once that word is made) and you get to pick from suggested topics. It is like Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Trivial Pursuit, and WordFul have been combined into just one game. So I am going to hang in there and hope that the crashing is fixed soon.
Fixed! Thank you!
by Bonzo25 on 2020/03/21 21:42
Love this game! It’s been one of my all time favs! Unfortunately a few weeks ago after every add it goes black and I can’t play without turning my phone off and on. To delete and download makes you start over. I’d rather pay a fee to avoid adds. Would be 5 stars, but because I can’t play continually I’ll rate at 3 and that’s only because I really do love playing this game 😢
Great idea with a few bugs
by ujitfiokngk on 2019/11/24 00:45
I really like this game but I found the hint part very annoying. I didn’t need the hints at all. Also the ads made my iPad keep freezing up and I couldn’t get out of the ad without rebooting. This happened so often I had to finally delete the game. None of my other games did this. I would still be playing if it weren’t for that. Good idea for a game, but maybe give easy, medium and hard options? Just a thought. Thank you.
Finally! Something a bit different
by Danni Loves Puzzles on 2020/01/25 18:13
So I just started playing, and it has been pretty easy, but I can see how it could become increasingly challenging. Not just a word search. Find words in the grid, then the found letters randomly populate the phrase that must be completed to move to the next puzzle. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼this becomes more difficult.
Okay game. Keeps me occupied.
by goldenbubbles on 2020/03/20 07:49
I have only been playing a little over a week and can’t stop playing. It it like word search and wheel of fortune rolled in to one. The only thing I don’t like about the game is having the same categories over and over. Additional info. I keep getting the same themes, Books and Authors and places. This has been my choices for the last six levels. Before that there were decades over and over. Not liking game as much as before. This is why I Sam changing my review.
Fun game with a huge, annoying flaw!
by MelissaL55 on 2019/11/15 02:36
Really enjoy the finding of words in a grid, and solving the phrase puzzles. However, the “hint” feature is unnecessary and grossly distracting. My favorite part of the game is finding the best possible words. It’s not timed, but if no word is entered very quickly, hints (or suggestions) keep popping up...always short and dull words easily found by oneself...which I find insulting and annoying. I haven’t yet found a way to disable this. I’m still playing, but my irritation grows stronger with each game.
New update crap
by Peacock67809 on 2020/07/10 12:09
I’ve been using this app for at least a year, never had issues, but the update that was recently done is awful. The game freezes every time I Hit submit after the daily puzzle and for a normal level. Yesterday there was no daily reward/gift but then today there is yet no new update. Please fix at its very annoying to exit out the game after solving a puzzle every time. Was a great game before the update. Think there is a bug in the update. You guys said you were working on it and it has been two weeks. Can we get an update on when it might be fixed?
Love the game, but
by Kissmyelephant on 2020/05/15 20:49
While playing, the screen will go black or it goes back to my home screen. When I try to go back to the game I will have the same black screen or it will be frozen. This happens after playing 5-8 games in a row. After an hour or 2, I can start again. Too many games played in a row?
LOVE 💗 BUT...
by Nancybea316 🐝 on 2020/03/19 16:29
Do LOVE THIS GAME VERY MUCH, however I would love to change the 3 ⭐️’s to 5 but.... the game has this weird glitch; THAT after EACH AND EVERY SINGLE AD the screen goes black and won’t come back??!! Until I refresh, which I HAVE TO DO EACH AND EVERY TIME!!!!! That’s crazy and extremely ANNOYING!!! Aside from this weird glitch it’s a truly GREAT GAME!!! Love this company have several of their games happy with all!!! Developers I do hope you can FIX this bump in the road!? Thank you!! I will change this rating the moment it’s fixed!
Love game
by pudn602 on 2020/03/14 17:22
I really love this game it keeps my mind sharp. The only thing that irritates me: I’m in the 1800’s because I’ve seemed to have completed all the subjects now my only choice is “places”. I wouldn’t care if I had to repeat other subjects. This game is a lot of fun but if this is what will continue to happen after 1800 games. I’m going to delete app and move onto something else. Please fix it so I may continue to play my favorite game.
Love Words! So love your game!
by Katie Caldwell on 2019/12/06 02:07
Thank you for creating one of the best in word games. Your Word Search and Words2 are my two favorite games. Other games do not hold my interest for long. I just downloaded Word Search two weeks ago and look forward to playing it each day. Thank you! Please keep creating fun, interesting and challenging Word games.
Problem
by 10 cylinders on 2020/07/07 21:49
Since the last update the app doesn’t move forward each time you solve a puzzle, so never get past the daily challenge. I deleted the app, rebooted my iPad and reinstalled the app. I lost the games I had played, and after approximately ten games I have the same issue.
Black screen
by Mytapestry on 2020/06/28 17:09
I played this game for many months without any issues. Recently it has started going to black screen after I complete the daily puzzle. Have reinstalled, but issue continues. This WAS my favorite game.... Update: This issue was finally resolved. Now you’ve updated the game. First game played, it has frozen on the solve screen. Soooooooooo frustrating!!
Pretty good game
by Angelwriter214 on 2020/01/05 02:07
Overall it’s a pretty good game but the one thing that has driven me crazy about it is that not all things are categorized correctly. An example would be under TV Shows the puzzle would end up being Bayside High School. That’s not the TV show though. The show is Saved By The Bell. Or actors names would be under TV shows. It’s a good game but some of these need to be categorized better.
Word Search
by Bre+93 on 2020/04/04 12:46
Love the game but that is all i get is the first game only before it freezes on my ipad. It has something to do with your ads but i am unable to correct. Must wait hours if not a day before able to play another one game. If not fixed will deleteas very frustrating.
Word Search
by midcon07 on 2020/05/22 16:49
Like the game and don’t mind the short ads BUT you’re going to have to get rid of the loooong ads or you’ll get rid of me. Since I don’t generate any income it will likely be me that’s gone. I’ll give it 2 weeks. Thanks for your reply. In fact these are the first and so far only time I’ve run across this problem. If it happens again I will get back to you with the name of the company and other details.
Really enjoying
by Ladylisa23 on 2019/11/29 23:57
I am really enjoying this game. I like how there are two categories that you can choose from. Also, as with any game, there are ads. The game’s ads only last a few seconds before you can exit them. That’s a bonus for me...short ads!!
More categories please!
by Momocat101 on 2019/12/26 23:32
I’ve recently started playing this game and LOVE it...... but you really need to add more categories. When it spins, it consistently goes to the 2000’s and places more often than any other categories. It was VERY limited on the t0’s and 70’s and no matter how many commercials I watch, it hasn’t come up again in weeks. Still, really enjoy this game immensely.
Like the game, hate the flashing hints
by amsh0 on 2020/02/26 16:53
I really like the game, but there seems to be a lot of unnecessary animation. And the flashing hints are more stressful than helpful - feels like I'm being rushed when the reason I'm playing a game in the first place is to try to relax and take a break from something. Would love the option to turn off this feature - bc honestly I usually end up getting too annoyed to keep playing.
Black screen
by Mousie1122 on 2020/04/02 15:55
Love this game but in the last few days, the screen goes black between puzzles. The only way to fix it is to power off the device. I just did that, then it went black after only one puzzle. Please fix it. I also deleted the app and reinstalled it. Same problem. I have an iPhone 8s
Fun and enjoyable.....but
by TheOldRanger on 2020/03/12 19:27
I really enjoy this, but when I got going, the screen on my iPad went black. I turned everything off, rebooted, but I couldn’t remove the black screen. I deleted the game and had to wait several days before the game was available again. Hope it doesn’t black out on me again
* Update *
by KDReetz0831 on 2020/03/18 17:28
I was having issues with the game crashing after each video ad, but that has been fixed! I really love this game. It’s challenging, but not frustrating. The biggest problem is I find myself playing too much!!
Want to give 5 but.....
by 2 SWM KDZ on 2020/07/10 19:05
Was going great. Now I play a game and it never progresses past the submit after I solve the puzzle. Just sits there. Want to love it but till it is fixed I will move on to another one and check in to see if they have corrected the issue Is fun and makes you think just fails at the end
Intermittent Fun
by vavia on 2020/04/04 07:22
The game is really fun! The problem is the interminable ads. I dread them popping up, which is quite often. They are long and force you to watch for as long as 30 sounds before yo can x it back to the game. I would give this 5 stars if I had the option to pay in order to get rid of the ads.
Stuck on same puzzle/answer
by Sellinellen on 2020/06/01 03:33
Got stuck on Brie Larson for about 40 something times and would not advance. I had about 970+ games completed before it seemed to fixate on the captain marvel! ?? I played the daily puzzle but then deleted app. I reached out to support but they really don’t care. Just out my time is all. Didn’t pay for it. I enjoyed it very much before that. Nothing against Brie!
Great Fun and Educational
by jamesharris05 on 2019/12/09 01:29
Within 24 hours of downloading I’ve played over 100 puzzles. It is addictive from the music and sound effects to the testing of knowledge. I highly recommend this game to those that enjoy word puzzles and can appreciate a well made app.
Blank screen
by MDZvara on 2020/04/15 15:44
When playing the game and after a few games it goes to a ad. When ad is done when I exit some times it goes to a blank screen and I lose connection. Other than that I love the app and game. Marilyn
Not too bad
by Kels42 on 2019/11/19 20:28
I enjoy it when I need something to pass the time and it’s one of the better word search type games I’ve played. I do want to let the developers know that there is a misspelling in one of the phrases under the Ernest Hemingway category, just an FYI. I ended up missing out on an extra star because I couldn’t find the rouge letter that got attached to the end of “man” in the phrase.
Challenging and fun
by SC low country on 2020/04/21 05:13
Absolutely love playing this. The clues are great . Finding the answer with as little letters turned is challenging but fun. Love the different areas of topics. I learn something’s as I play. So glad I downloaded it. Would love to have other puzzles like this. Great thing is....it’s absolutely free!
Initially great
by Another grader on 2020/04/12 15:02
This app was initially very fun with 5 decades to choose from in the categories plus books, authors and places. After playing for a few weeks, the categories are limited to one decade (2010), books, and places. In addition, the app really saps battery life. This would be a 5 star app if the category options remained intact and the battery usage were corrected.
Ads screw it up
by calmincense on 2020/03/23 21:23
The ads wouldn’t be such an issue, BUT, all the video type ads won’t close properly so I have to completely close the program and reopen to get back to the game. I’m not going to do this for long, I’ll quit playing. Plz fix this bug. The game itself is one of the better word games. No timer, so no stress lol, the content is relevant, and it’s very fun.
Entertaining but...
by Boo in AZ on 2020/02/27 01:31
I enjoy this, however, there are many spelling and even phrase errors. I know they have been reported by many but never get fixed. It would also be more challenging if there were more types of categories. I like others would pay for an add free option like almost every other game in the universe offers.
