You messed it up
by lljjcc9 on 2019/12/11 02:23
I like to relax and play games to escape from the worldly turmoil. Now you push your political attack ads at us even here No more scrabble for me. You ruined it!
Commercial
by amishlady66 on 2019/12/11 02:05
The Allstate commercial Is absolutely annoying.
Too many pop ups
by jydkgdgkc on 2019/12/11 00:45
Would be 100% better if there were less pop ups. Every time I would go to place a word on the board a pop up would appear. Very annoying so I deleted it.
Limited dictionary
by firedawgbw on 2019/12/10 00:27
Numerous actual real words are not words according to the game’s dictionary.
Annoying
by pfromcork on 2019/12/09 23:17
Constant interruptions from the same dorito ad. Computer after every move tells you what you did WRONG!
Horrible

It was ad free and now ads pop up after every play! You’ve ruined it!
Useless for Multiplayer
by wired4net on 2019/12/09 20:01
This greedy outfit wants you and your registered friend to install yet another app on your pc just to link to your friend to play in multiplayer. In today's world filled with companys stealing your personal data, that is a "FAIL" for me.
Can’t even use the app.
by ChaseKimes on 2019/12/09 04:54
When I open the new game box and go to friends to type my friends account in, the keyboard doesn’t show up onscreen so I can’t do anything. My friend also had the same problem, and I saw a post on a forum online about the same issue. It’s an app wide issue, if you download this app you will only be able to play single player and random matches. What a waste of time.

I got a new iPhone and this app is kicking me out to sign back in constantly. Now I can&#39;t get in at all even if I try to log in with Facebook. It won&#39;t do anything. They need to fix this. Ugh.
Don’t get this!

Frustrated
by jakiee 1028 on 2019/12/06 20:48
The game will not allow me to play with my friends. It does not recognize them and tries to switch me to a random opponent.
Terrible!!
by Velo9 on 2019/12/05 18:38
I hate the ads and hate that it pops up with Best Word and flashing stars for every Single word I play. You’ve ruined the game for me.
Bug
by big time alien swatter on 2019/12/05 14:21
You have a couple of bugs. One with a commercial and another that resets the game after a commercial. Please fix the bugs!
Rampant Ads!
by Sarahswati on 2019/12/05 01:44
Each turn treats you an advertisement... and they are usually the same ones over and over!!! Deleting this app! Too bad ‘cause I like Scrabble :(
Scrabble
by you need to fix it! on 2019/12/04 21:27
I love to play the game with the computer, but often it does not play fairly! It will use words that are not in the dictionary and add letters where there should not be! ( for example...eee) I’ll still play, but sometimes I just have to ignore its play!

Can’t add friends from EA Sports

Doesn’t play by the same rules as the board game
by Jupy123 on 2019/12/03 19:52
This game allows words not found in Merriam-Webster and foreign language words, but not all. I’ve tried to use common foreign words that were denied. It is okay playing with a human who agrees to the standard rules, but not with the computer as an opponent! I cry “foul!”
Annoying ads
by EGP Parker on 2019/12/03 12:24
I have been playing this for quite Awhile. The ads would come after completing a full game. Then all of a sudden an ad or video ad after every single move. No way to modify it. It is not worth playing the game anymore.
Lots of ads
by Jlstar44 on 2019/12/03 11:02
So. Many. Ads. They pop up after every move! So annoying
Too many ads

Lost content of 2 games
by KatrinaVW on 2019/12/02 21:38
For the past two weeks I have tried to get help about this issue. Finally heard back from a scrabble rep today, and all they could say is: we’re working on it. Also, a friend disappeared from my scrabble app list, yet when I go to my origins/ea account, the friend is listed.
Could be better
by bleep456 on 2019/12/02 13:32
The computer comes up with so many words I’ve never heard of but when I look in the included dictionary it doesn’t give a definition, only that it’s an approved word. It’s a missed opportunity to improve one’s vocabulary for sure. And there are SO MANY ADS, it’s definitely a deterrent to playing the game.
Awful
by Reneduterroil on 2019/12/01 23:00
Terrible - annoying prompts and difficult to focus
Too many adds, kills the game

Link to a real dictionary!
by c1w on 2019/12/01 16:21
On the one hand I like the challenge. On the other the ridiculous dictionary that makes up words not found in Merriam Webster or other reputable dictionaries limits the pleasure and the challenge. I would pay a premium to get a real dictionary and fix some bugs. Move the recall button away from the play button. Add an undo function for mistaken plays and a challenge button to challenge players words. Give me a real dictionary and I’ll pay a premium.

After years of playing, friends list gone!
by Cookiebaker64 on 2019/12/01 12:47
I used to love this game. Made Scrabble friends all over the world. For a long time now, there has been no way to connect to new friends (and no, I do not want to play through Facebook) and now my friends list has completely disappeared. I have one friend I have been playing with for years and we are afraid we will lose our connection forever. What in the hell is going on, Scrabble?

Cannot search friends no keyboard
by Evee910 on 2019/11/30 22:07
So sad this app used to be a lot of fun. My friends keep disappearing and now I cannot search to find them since no keyboard comes up! Bad! So glad I was trying to get this to work for my 70 old dad and I.
Frustrating - invisible tutorials
by grumpy today on 2019/11/30 21:17
Should be a great game tutor - scrabble with computer that shows you better word choices from your rack after every play. Problem is, an ad comes on so fast after the teacher shows what you could have done that you rarely actually get to see the suggestion, which has disappeared off the board by the time the ad ends

Chat feature still missing -- Guest 5224
by Olympia Gardener on 2019/11/30 16:27
11/29/2019 -- ELECTRONIC ARTS: P L E A S E -- fix the &#34;chat feature on my iPad version of SCRABBLE! 11/19/2019 -- Electronic Arts cannot be bothered fixing the &#34;chat&#34; feature, yet today they sent me a questionnaire asking me to help them with their sponsors. ARE YOU KIDDING??? 11/16--CHAT FEATURE STILL MISSING. WHEN IS ELECTRONIC ARTS GOING TO GET ITS ACT IN GEAR????? 11/8 --PLEASE FIX THE CHAT FEATURE -- STILL MISSING! 10/21 -- PLEASE FIX THE CHAT FEATURE -- 3 months, and it is still missing! PLEASE UPDATE YOUR DICTIONARY! Since when is &#34;bulbing&#34; not a word? Have you ever heard of bulbing onions? Gardeners frequently want to know why their onions are not bulbing. When Electronic Arts FORCED players into updating the program, they eliminated the chat feature. They said that &#34;chat&#34; is now &#34;Opt In&#34;. BALONEY! It was ELIMINATED! Electronic Arts also demanded to know my age -- which is insulting and none of their business! I&#39;m over 21, so that is the age I used. HUGE MISTAKE! Age 21 is of child-bearing age so all of the ads that now play after each turn are baby-related garbage. ELECTRONIC ARTS -- PLEASE FIX THE PROGRAM AND RETURN THE CHAT FEATURE.
Word verification
by Momma J 74 on 2019/11/30 15:53
This game challenges my words, but I have no ability to challenge its words and at times I cannot find its word in the US dictionary. This is very frustrating.
EULA Required? Best word popups???
by BlueLynxZed on 2019/11/30 09:18
The absent minded programmers think I need a best word popup every round? Based on extensive play I also suspect the letter drawing is not completely random and is pulled from weighted tables based on selected computer difficult. Believe it or not it ruins the flow of the game... noy everyone needs to post words to social media... as I have been saying review after review for years - leave it to EA to ruin even a game as classic as scrabble.
One ad
by dnsisksk on 2019/11/30 01:31
There is one reason and one reason only this app got a 1 star. There is one ad that I can’t click out of to go back to the game. It only takes me to the play store. So for the second time I have to delete scrabble just to download it again and start over completely. Can we fix this please? For the record it’s Vegas live app!
To many ads
by didkckdkjejd on 2019/11/29 18:44
I played this game about three years ago and it was way better. There were no ads and it was a good game. But now, EA is money happy and wants more, by putting ads after every single turn in the game! It is just not fun and I think that they need to change that.
Beware of the ads!
by lady409 on 2019/11/29 14:54
I love the scrabble app beware of the ads in the “free” version. There is a gambling app that wouldn’t close. When I tap anywhere on it it tried to charge my credit card stored in Apple Pay $3 without my permission.

by F3 happyface on 2019/11/28 20:44
Of course EA would monetize a game to the point you’d much rather pay for the 7.99 version. An advertisement after every turn is ridiculous why can’t I just enjoy the game and after it ends play an ad.
Region locked?!
by phaelam on 2019/11/28 18:17

This might be a good app if you could actually play the game. There are so many advertisements constantly interrupting the game that you cannot enjoy it at all. I have had one advertisement playing for more than five minutes. The ads cannot be skipped or stopped. Really terrible setup which make the game unplayable.

Long Time Players Aren’t Always Visible
by HopingForUninterruptedCleanFun on 2019/11/24 22:50
I’ve been on Scrabble for Years and love it. No one has the greater advantage. You play with what you get. But has anyone else had problems with long time opponents/friends not on the board every time you get on. Our games are still going, but they only show up every other day or so and some even have sent a nudge because I didn’t have them on my board to play my turn. Then they are there again - for which I am relieved. What is happening?

Terrible recently
by Vtgirllllly578 on 2019/11/17 13:23
Doesn’t remember your latest moves if you leave the app. Freezes and takes much longer between turns than it used to. If you are using the app on airplane mode it’s even worse. If I try to close the program it freezes up, even makes my entire phone phone freeze, almost like a spiteful retort for me closing the app. Not sure what they were trying to fix with their updates but the program is much worse now than a few months ago. Games shouldn’t be this frustrating to play.
Leave well enough alone
by JoeTK on 2019/11/17 11:21
I have been using this scrabble app since it came out. Over the years, there have been updates that for a time have screwed up the functionality of the app, later to be fixed by another update. The latest screwup is that I can no longer see the names or the pictures of my friends that I play against, and when I try to start a new game with them, I end up playing a random opponent. So, what’s up with this EA? Do you want more money for the app? I would gladly pay more for the app if you would just leave it the hell alone.
Way too many ads!
by Talon o 5 on 2019/11/17 07:54
I don&#39;t mind an occasional ad when I&#39;m trying to decide if I&#39;m willing to purchase a game, but after EVERY WORD PLAYED? The ads that are played take more time to get through than choosing a word and placing the tiles (in most cases.). Yes, some ads were &#34;only&#34; 15 seconds long, but others were 30 seconds in length. I&#39;ve played only one game (against the computer) and it took almost an hour because of the ads! I probably won&#39;t play again. One other thing I noticed is that there appear to be no &#34;blank tiles&#34; as the official Scrabble game has. It&#39;s possible I missed them, or is a setting I overlooked, or the computer got them... but they should be included, in my opinion, for the game to be authentic.

Made up words
by bikernurse1234 on 2019/11/16 06:19
This scrabble allows you to use words that aren’t really words. It kind of takes the fun out of it when you can just try letters until something works, like TIZ.

When playing against the computer I disagree with some words they accept. The computer said GHI. is a word and I looked it up. It is not a word in the Webster Dictionary. There have been a few others. Please be fair. Once again, slope is not a word. Can’t take it anymore.

Personally I don’t like ads and I don’t think I am the only person so I am going to delete this game. I only wrote this so people in the future know to expect ads and for the game maker to take the ads out!😡

Scrabble Love
by psantori on 2017/10/04 03:06
It is October, 2013 around 2300 GMT. In the U.K. a woman is playing Scrabble online and runs out of opponents but is not ready to call it a night. She hits the Random Opponent button and a player in America responds. Using the chat function, he asks the woman where she is. She replies. He asks if he can look her up on Facebook. She agrees and he finds several pictures of cats, a snowy backyard and, thankfully, a larger version of her profile picture. He asks, again via Scrabble chat, for her phone number. Being English, and also not knowing if this American is in jail or worse, she refuses. Thus began a relationship that culminated in that English woman marrying that American man on a paddle boat on the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. on July 11, 2015. I am that American man and that English woman is my wife and the love of my life. Thanks, Scrabble!
A great classic game!
by Martinsd on 2017/10/19 11:00
For as long as I can remember, Scrabble has been one of my all time favorite games! It is suitable for a most ages about 10 to 12 years and up because you can choose the level of difficulty and playing style. I really enjoy the option to either play against the computer, or with others who are also connected online. I find it very addicting, and can play for long periods of time without ever getting bored. The downfall is that the dictionary used definitely does not include all of the words in the English language. It is frustrating to not be able to play words that are truly legitimate. My other complaint is the high frequency of interruptions by the constant ads. When I first started playing this app, there were very few ads but the longer I have played the more ad interruptions that occur. Now an ad pops up virtually right after every time I take my turn. The app would be a lot more enjoyable if there was a way to eliminate the ads all together. Otherwise I am really liking this app and recommend it to others who have enjoyed this classic game!
Too many ads, buggy, word list not up to date
by ManetRamsey on 2018/11/28 20:07
1. This app has WAY too many ads, and the no-ads premium version is highly overpriced. I’m not talking about ads you can click away after a few seconds. There’s an ad after every single time you play, which renders the otherwise possibly fun “timed play” game mode useless. and these ads sometimes freeze the game so that you have to quit the app and reopen it to continue playing. The frequency of this makes the app unusable when you’re running low on battery. 2. The word list isn’t up to date. The two-letter words “ew” and “ok” were recently added to the official Scrabble dictionary, as well as the word “zen,” but my friends and I have found that we still can’t play those words in the supposedly official scrabble app. This needs to be fixed ASAP 3. The “teacher mode” is interesting but it sometimes spoils the game, allowing people to cheat. There should be an option to handicap it so that it can’t show best plays that could be made with tiles still in your rack, or a way to have it show you all the possible best plays after the game is finished.
Enjoyable

I play this with the computer, my first computer game ever. Have always loved scrabble. My main complaint is that it seems sometimes words are spelled incorrectly. There is some inconsistency with words and how they are spelled, I have noticed at times, which is a bit frustrating. And there are a lot of words that I didn&#39;t know existed. Are they true words??? But for the most part, It is lots of fun to be able to play on my ipad. Thanks to the creator of this! Lately am playing with others online, and is quite frustrating, as there seem to be many issues with the app, and I am often losing the connection. I hope u can fix the issues soon! It is very annoying sometimes that ads get stuck and you can&#39;t get out of them and have to stop playing! That has been happening a lot lately. Can&#39;t play very long due to ads getting stuck. Please fix it!
What happened to scrabble?
by ManiTobi on 2017/09/24 22:53
This was good and fun a few years ago. The updates made it continually glitchy. Now the &#34;teacher&#34; no longer provides any useful words. She would always tell you if there was better word out there. Now she gives you the lowest scoring word. So weird!! Anyway, it crashes occasionally and there are many times when it has trouble with the server. It&#39;s too bad. I used to love it. 😕 Again, your updates make the game even more glitchy. I have to reboot my phone after each word play. Going between dictionary and game, it acts as though you just opened the game. Replacing opponents tiles and taking yours off the mat. Dictionary takes several taps to close, or even to delete the word you tried and or change that word. And then will freeze and won&#39;t let you back into the game. I don&#39;t know what you guys are thinking you&#39;re doing or what goal you are trying to get to. But you have made playing this almost unbearable.
Double Standard
by Rocky2352 on 2019/06/12 15:00
This game is fun to play, but the computer uses words or groups of letters that are not in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary contradicting what the game description states. The computer uses foreign words; the computer’s dictionary provides meanings that don’t make any sense or are invalid; and the computer plays groups of letters that are just...groups of letters. Here is a partial list of the words the computer has played and unfortunately the game does not allow you to challenge a played word: “idiot, aliya, eques, urp, urb, eejit, qintar, gangles, unau, gude, klong, archi, cinqs, atigi, fujis, gript, tae, yoof, yomp, aswim, ablush, nyah, quin, deshi, quintan, bedad, vlei, rangs, balti, obe, torc, eejits, fub, bothie, ulu, cunit, ogeed, moho, eruv, wali, vum, fah, inia, toyo, myc, tians, izard, atigi, zincy, vivat, emics, zlote, coady, adown, broos, anga, tetrose, roven, hoo, cabover, yage, ougiya, musjid, oma, arroz, cauri, santim, huic, vivat, dohs, oma, juga, kubie, jugal, oba, wos, coden, areae, nortena, ridgils, forex, anura, caf, hymnic, eejits, sraddha, seiza, novated, tolt, arroz, erasion, linhay, zlote, effable, siddhi, paua, jibbah, djibbahs, ejido, ums, dout, vuln, agouty, zlote.” More fake words to come, I’m sure; so be aware as you play on.
Addictive
by Jill A. U. on 2018/08/28 13:32
I gave this game five stars although it can be frustrating when the game creates words that don’t exist or that have not been used for centuries. It also sometimes refuses to acknowledge words that are commonly used, and it appears to allow prefixes as if they are separate words. That said, I love the scramble function which allows me to see a variety of options before I make my play, and I love the fact that I can look up words before I make a play,Or randomly try mixtures of letters to see if the game recognizes one of them as a word. It would all be considered cheating in the real game, or impossible to do, but here it’s just a computer and me. And I do learn vocab words.
I miss my old scrabble game.
by bri1212 on 2018/12/07 12:01
The game that used to be on the App Store was a fun game, it had a full dictionary, and no ads. The old game is no longer on the App Store, they have replaced it with this piece of crap. There is an ad after every turn, not an ad which might allow you to look at your letters while having to sit through the same ad over and over again, but one that takes over the whole screen, and a dictionary that does not function. You cannot look up a word. The teacher either makes up words, or uses words from a foreign tongue. I can no longer download the game that I enjoyed and I understand it was all so that we could play on Facebook with friends, which for me, is something I won’t do. There also needs to be more customization available. The only real resemblance to the Hasbro game is the use of the tiles and the game board, otherwise there is little resemblance at all.
It cheats?
by WellingtonIV on 2019/10/06 02:50
Playing against the computer it uses French words, German words, sand-script words, urban slang, Chinese words, acronyms, etc., but does not allow any Hebrew words that are commonly used in the English language and are in most English dictionaries; it even rejected the word jewish which is actually an English origin word. Ir appears that the game developers have written their own dictionary and removed all words that they deem inappropriate or possibly offensive. The game has also used several proper nouns which is against traditional Scrabble rules. Playing the single player, beginners level I consistently clobbered the computer, magically when I switched to the more challenging levels, I immediately started getting excessive amounts of letters with the letter value of 1, or an excess number of one letter. I guess that is what the makers think of as challenging. Disappointing, particularly when it rejects English origin words that are in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
So. Many. Ads., etc.
by Bemmuh on 2019/01/26 03:56
I was so excited to use this app to build my knowledge but I quickly (in a matter on minutes) grew frustrated with it. As I play the computer, there is a 5-30+ second ad after EVERY move I make. It really distracts me from the game and ruins the experience for me, as I end up spending more time waiting to click through ads than I do actually playing the game... in addition to that, the computer comes up with completely arbitrary words that basically no one has used in a real-life sentence... even on “beginner” it makes me feel defeated - the computer gets words like “qibla” and then I’m over here with literally “E,E,E,E,W,I,U”... [I can admit to my own ignorance as I have never been the best at word games, but come one now...] Because of this, I give the app 2/5 stars. As the game says: “you’re doing great but there is room for improvement”.
App update- game not working
by ScottMoreno on 2017/09/07 18:29
I think they&#39;ve fixed it now but after my last app update: I have to delete and re-upload this game almost everyday for me to be able to play my games. This seemed to start happening after I updated the game, now it doesn&#39;t work. Non of the names of the players are showing up, the notification says four but there&#39;s only one no name who&#39;s played. The game is NON functional unless I delete and re-upload the game every time I want to play it. I have the latest updates on my phone and Facebook. I have let Scrabble know but nothing has changed. This game is becoming a real drag to play :(
Scrabble Crashing Constantly!!
by Typeway on 2018/08/24 18:16
I love this game and I play every day on my iPad mini against a friend in another state, along with many other friends. The past two days all it does is crash before a game, after a game, or during a game. I have done a full reboot more than once. I have deleted and reinstalled the game twice with the same crashing results. My iPad is totally updated. Although I have plenty of memory left, I deleted pics and other files/apps I’m not using to free up space thinking that would help, but it did not. Has anyone else experienced this just recently? A Scrabble friend also complained to me today about the same issue. We will have to switch to Words with Friends until Scrabble addresses this. Please advise or fix soon... thank you.
They’ve ruined this game.
by Really Perturbed1837468393 on 2019/01/19 21:12
I have a version of this game that I may have payed $2.99 for a few years ago, and I play it almost daily. I had to download this version on my work phone temporarily because I did not have my phone. But this new version where you have to look at an ad after play... It’s horrible. Do not play this game. You will want to smash your face against a wall. And scream. And swear. They don’t even offer an ad free version. DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME!!! Wait until they make it reasonable to play. Also, they dumbed down the levels of play. The expert level is not as hard as it used to be and the advanced is easy. They are just trying to make you feel smart. And the teacher will sometimes make suggestions that are not the best play. They have ruined this game. Way to destroy your own product just in an attempt to get more money. I hope no one plays it.
Ad-free board
by grandma1020 on 2017/11/01 06:11
I purchased ad-free board a few months back. I had to reinstall scrabble due to problems with the instability of the software, my screen froze a lot of times, etc., but I am now getting ads on my board or screen. I reported my problem to customer support and so far, they just sent me an email confirming receipt of my complaint but no resolution to my problem. I am still waiting to hear from scrabble. I enjoy playing scrabble but couldn’t stand waiting for the ads to finish before I can make a move. If not for the ads and the lack of resolution to my problem, I would rate it a 5.
Not too bad - Not too good
by Sherry9876 on 2017/11/29 02:55
Update: Frozen again. Can’t you people fix this? And you want me to pay $9+ to have an app that freezes frequently. You want my money but not the responsibility of working to have it run smoothly. Have just re-downloaded Scrabble after a number of months. At least some of the stupid stuff has been removed, and I can mute it as well as turn off some features. Some of the ads are a half minute - long enough for me to get interested in something on tv. I ignore all and wouldn’t buy in any case. Also, after playing just about 8-10 games, it completely froze. Had to delete and download again. Another complaint is that at the end of almost every game, I am left with 2-3 letter U. The computer seems to get an inordinate amount of the high value letters. Would love to play just a regular game against the computer.
Good game but ads are intolerable
by Sonrisante on 2017/12/05 17:34
I’ve played this online game for years. Works well when playing with friends. Some minor UI improvements would be nice, but its generally a great take on the classic board game. Love it. BUT! Recently the ads have “upgraded” to high resolution video requiring a full 30 seconds to watch •after• downloading. I’m on light internet so this takes forever, especially since iOS 11 has been release. Sometime I wait more than 30 seconds for the video to download before I then have to wait for 30 seconds to get through the blasted thing that I’ve seen a gazillion times before. If this keeps up I’ll be switching to a different game.
Hot game app
by PW55 55 on 2017/09/03 01:56
Been seeing improvements since my last review. Great game/app. Play everyday with an old friend. Very addictive and challenging. Lots of new words added to my vocabulary and Scrabble dictionary. Hope youngsters are learning to play this game fun game. Dec. 16,2016. Lately app has been freezing up, can&#39;t get teacher, check spelling to see if valid word, game board freezes. 9-2-17 had to erase previous review to get this end, still some freezing up, but turn off, wait, back on. Teacher is different, give best play not always best points. Learning what to omit in a play or go for it. Still challenging as always. 😃 ❤️ scrabble!
Something weird has started happening
by SceneQueenKJ on 2017/09/25 15:57
I&#39;ve had this game for a couple of months and this just started happening yesterday - after I play a word, every time, the little &#34;loading&#34; symbol will come up as usual, but then it won&#39;t play an ad. It&#39;s not frozen bc all the moving things on the screen are still moving, but it won&#39;t let me do anything else after that - I press the back button, I press the teacher button, I press every button on the screen and even try waiting a couple minutes, but I always end up having to close out of the app and restart it. I thought deleting and re downloading it would solve this but it didn&#39;t. This is not my phone glitching out, this is something wrong with the software of the game. Please fix this.
Too Many Bugs
by Ronzorro on 2019/10/21 04:32
I love playing online Scrabble but am so frustrated by the bugs in the program. I have paid for the Teacher function but it doesn&#39;t work on my iMac. I have to use my iPhone for the Teacher function. Another frustration is that there is no way to contact Electronic Arts for help to fix this problem. Also, occasionally the Scrabble app on my iPhone freezes. I have to remove it and download it again for it to work. I wish EA would fix these bugs. Other than those two annoying problems, I live the Scrabble app. I play it every day.
Scrabble is getting worse!
by Mysterygal1944 on 2017/12/10 15:06
ZERO STARS. The issues with logging in continue with EA. Today I had to delete the game and download it again. So annoying. Why do I have to log in almost every other day to EA to play Scrabble???? So annoying. Are you ever going to fix this app??? I would take away both stars if I could. Do your job and fix the game!!! Every time I try to log in, I am told I have the wrong email or password. I love to try anything to make the game even work!!!! Now it tells me I have the wrong email and/or password, so I can&#39;t even log on. And neither can my son, so we can&#39;t play at all. You really need to fix the app and soon!!!!! So annoying that I have to keep logging in; only game I play that makes me do it. And why does the dictionary have words that start with caps??? And get rid of the pop up ads on the IPad! I hat the 30 second ads that I have to watch!!!! No way to delete them and go back to the game. And I still have to restart my my IPad after every word I play; the game freezes and will not let me keep playing!!! FIX THESE PROBLEMS!!!!!! On 917, the game does not even recognize me as a player. Is it really that hard to fix this problem?
Crashes constantly
by S37362 on 2019/05/30 21:02
I really enjoy the game. I like that I have the option of playing the computer. There are many other nice features; BUT the ads after very single move is very, very annoying. To add insult to injury, after every add, the game crashes. I open the game up, I wait for it to relay the last move and it will crash again! This can sometimes happen 3 or 4 times in a row before I’m able to take my turn. Of course, after I take my turn, the whole ugly cycle repeats itself - ad, crash, replay last move, crash again, etc. I would enjoy, thus play this a lot more if 1. The game didn’t constantly crash and 2. If the ads were spaced out just a little bit more. Thanks.
Hasn’t Changed!!
by Desert Pat on 2019/03/27 02:28
I love Scrabble...and play it regularly w/ a club of friends!! Have played for at least 30 years!!! But I’m VERY disappointed that Scrabbie has not changed...UPDATED...in all these years!! Consequently, I don’t play on-line NEARLY as much (or hardly at all) since another VERY popular word game has been on the circuit! I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what Scrabble-like word game has just SWALLOWED the game market in the past 5 years that makes SCRABBLE look SO “old fashion!” And, worse yet, YOU DON’T have to endure incessant commercials (WHILE PLAYING) or play an invalid word to find out, duh, “it’s invalid, dummy, try again.” SCRABBLE is way too great a word game...and has been around way too long...to not have updated their features AT LEAST AS OFTEN AS YOU ISSUE NEW SCRABBLE DICTIONARIES!! Come on guys!! THIS IS THE WORLD’s MOST WIDESPREAD, competitive word game!! Please bring it into 21 st century!!! The only thing you’ve changed IS THE INCESSANT COMMERCIALS WHILE PLAYING AGAINST THE COMPUTER! ENOUGH ALREADY!’ What’s with that?? (Personally, I don’t need the incessant, unchanging background music, either. What’s with that?? Regretful Pat (60 odd years-player)
Constant ads on this version
by Tojon10 on 2018/11/15 03:09
I’ve played the Scrabble app on my iPhones for years and enjoyed it very much—never EVER saw an ad. However, today I upgraded to an iPhone XS and the way that the phone’s screen is positioned completely covers up the score so you can’t see it which makes the game impossible to play. So I found and downloaded this version which solves the score visibility problem but all of a sudden there are noisy, lengthy, irritating ads after every one of my plays. Breaks my concentration, prolongs the length of the game and is completely annoying! As a result I’m unable to continuing playing the game unless the developers either (a) fix the old version to view properly in the iPhone XS, OR (b) provide the ability to opt-out the ads on this version. Until then, both of these versions are unplayable. Please fix!
Tiresome Ads!
by mvb1977 on 2018/08/25 20:46
I love to play Scrabble. However, I don&#39;t play as often or for long in one sitting, because of the pesky ads after every move I play. It irks me that your competitor (WWF) has done so without all the snags your game has. This could really be a great game if you could find a way to make it more enjoyable and glitch-free. I looked at what the premium version has to offer, but the reviews are quite negative. Many people are saying that the premium version is a waste of time and money. Offer me an ad-free version that actually works, and I may consider purchasing it.
Goofy attributes
by Angry birds crazed on 2019/08/23 03:28
The ads are insidious and a waste of game time. The way it magnifies the tiles indiscriminately no matter where you place a tile wastes game time. There is a weird logic to the two letter words that are allowed: ok but not oz when ok isn’t a word it’s an abbreviation. Slang words like yeah but not old words like thee. The way that the board tiles that the opponent has dropped always re-drop and the score recalculates when ever you return from the dictionary is also very annoying. The fact that the tiles that you get from the bag after a drop don’t seem random; 5 “I’s” all vowels or consonants, repeating tiles turn after turn just take the fun out of the game especially when it keeps happening game after game.
Fun but so ad-driven and buggy you’ll need a fly swatter
by J1&J1 on 2018/07/28 03:13
Scrabble, I love you, but it’s not going to work between us if you don’t get your act together. There are thousands of free games online. Is it necessary to put an advertisement after every move? Do you know how many issues said ads cause? Boatloads. Frozen screens, blank screens, rerouting to purchases that were never selected. Tonight? You froze on the computer swapping out bad letters. I tried removing the game to reinstall it, tried leaving the game and starting a new one, tried forfeiting. All this still left me with a screen that read, SWAPPED, that wouldn’t allow me to make a move. I’m sad to leave, really. Maybe I’ll check back in six or seven months to see if you’ve really changed. I’ll miss you. Goodbye.
Glitch
by 2ChaCha2 on 2019/10/27 15:29
As of Oct 8, 2019 there is some kind of glitch in this game. When could not connect with friend player so I deleted the app thinking a reinstallation would solve the problem. Now lost all my stats since 2016 including my 2016 start date, highest score etc. Sorely there is no way “contact us”. Playing with friends was fun while it lasted. Sure wish I could recover my stats. Shortly after my Oct 8th review the scrabble app suddenly started working. Played about 5 games with friends. It was great! On Oct 26th there was a “tap to connect” which sent me in a circle thru FB. Then the app section that allows playing with friends froze. Waited hoping app would again suddenly start working. No luck. But all is not lost cause playing against the computer is functioning. Will try to reinstall but again will lose stats.
The app doesn’t work properly
by 7oy7oy on 2019/09/15 16:03
Developer(s), please fix the app. Once I sign in (AGAIN) I cannot locate any of the few games I am still in. The opponent I am playing who is sitting next to me has been waiting over a week for me to take my turn in the games. She keeps showing me all of the games we’re in and that she’s waiting but I can see anything on my end. I’ve logged out and back in. I’ve looked for updates. This is not the first time this has happened. My games show up when it feels like it then disappears for awhile. I do not have multiple accounts. I’ve even considered purchasing the $8 edition but if I’m going to have the same issues it’s no need to waste my money when my time is being wasted by attempting to fix the issue on my end. One star, since I can sign in. Please find a resolution!
Horrible Ad Experience. Game Over.
by <3Travel on 2018/12/08 16:55
Updating this review as I decided to try the application again after many years hiatus. Unfortunately, the user experience has only gotten worse. There is a pop-up ad after each and every word you play. Some of them are as long as 20 seconds. And, to make matters worse, they’re not targeted at all. So, not only am I distracted from the scrabble board, I’m repeatedly forced to watch an ad for something I already have. Or, an ad for something I would never have in a million years. Meanwhile, the dictionary is out of date and the “teacher” seems to have no motive other than to make you feel so good about yourself that you keep playing. Not good for those of us who seek to improve.
Glitchy Inaccuracies & Too Many Ads
by TakeTheStupidNicknameIDontCare on 2018/09/28 11:26
It’s not like I know all the words, but I know sone of the words the computer is playing aren’t English words. Also, attempting to make similar moves the computer makes is invalid or unrecognized. Example of a PC play: Team parallel (4 on 4) with Meat (I made something up), perpendicular none of these words make a word but we all know the 2 words are independent of each other; the computer is able go make this play but we aren’t able to make this play. And yeah, there are way too many ads; most games do 1 to 2 ads per game, per move is ridiculous. I’m losing interest in this game quickly because of the glitches and ads, only been casually playing for a week and a half from time to time.
Latest Updates
by Arly bug on 2018/07/26 10:25
I have loved this game for several years except....the last couple of updates have been horrible. I recently had to start from scratch after developing my stats. I have been locked out of games, I have been told &#34;it&#39;s my turn&#34; and it&#39;s not. Words that were acceptable are no longer considered words. Go back to the old ways! This is a huge part of my life! Please fix it! You need to make your print larger and also change the choices order such as “Play” and “shuffle”. I can’t tell you how many times I accidentally hit “Play” when I really wanted “shuffle”. Check out “Word” scrabble. They have ideas and incentives to make you a better player.
Ads ruin the app
by Rhopelain on 2018/01/16 03:09
The game itself is just fine. No complaints — when you can actually play it. I understand the reason for ads in the free game but you should vet the ads to make sure they don’t screw up playing the game. Some ads require you to rotate your device and wait a stupid amount of time between turns. Some, like the one for Baskets, just shut the game down completely. I assume the $9 version is ad free, but the write up doesn’t mention that so I’m certainly not going to pay for it. I might delete the free app because the ads are just intolerable.
What a shame!
by Scrabble81 on 2019/10/11 21:29
This is a fun game, beautifully organized, but I am going to delete it after only one day. It has the most intrusive ads I have ever encountered and it is absolutely ridiculous the words it rejects as not in the dictionary. Very surprised others have not downrated it because of these annoyances. Wow, this is the second time I have deleted this app. I thought since the last time I deleted they would have minimized the ad intrusions, but no they have not. I love Scrabble and this is a fairly well structured game, but the basic words rejected is ridiculous and the number of words the computer opponent presents which do not exist is astonishing. Twice tried is enough for me.
What is happening
by truviacrazy on 2018/11/08 03:15
Something has changed recently. I have been playing scrabble for a few years with no problems. Now it will throw me out in the middle of a game and I have to start a new game. Several times it also will remove a word I just entered and the computer will take over. Aggravating. Now it’s stuck on the progressive ad and can’t go back to game Got it fixed now stuck again on progressive. There is no ‘x’ to get out of it. Fine. Now it’s in trouble again. Opened the game, selected single, then it went away. Rebooted Several times, rebooted the whole iPad , reloaded the app again But nothing is working. Why do I get a message that you can’t get to the servers. I have played scrabble for a few years on my iPad. There have been problems before but This has stopped being able to even play the game at all. If I go to the App Store it shows a game that you can pay $9.00
Playing against the computer
by jfayefern on 2017/08/30 15:05
Play at expert level first to 150 points against one computer was challenging and fun except that computer would take inordinately long time to play, often overnight, and especially when I was leading. It would cause the page to go blank and freeze until I restart the program. Once when I was on the verge of winning with a bingo on my next turn, it had exchanged two of my letters! Not nice, but I won anyway. This has not happened so often playing against two computer opponents to 150, and both play faster. I love the game and enjoy your free App on my iPad. Thank you.
Poor grammar
by For Cryuing Out Loud on 2018/11/08 22:33
I have noted a poor use of the rules of English. Example: The word “farce” is a noun and always a noun, but the game play allowed the computer opponent I was playing to add a “d” to make “farced” as if it were a verb. (Ye gods, even spell check made it hard for me to force the use of farced.) Example: “Qa” is an accepted English word but this game does not allow it, or at least didn’t when I played against the computer. And why does this game version allow colloquialisms, proper names, adding prefixes and suffixes at random to manufacture words never before seen, and many other non-standard applications? It may be okay to play the games, but teachers beware —- your students will not benefit from playing if it is being used as a teaching tool.
Way too many ads and the Teacher is just annoying
by Mels37 on 2019/02/21 05:15
There is literally an ad after every move, and when you come back from the ad the letters flash. Quite distracting. And the “teacher” taking up time to tell me what a better move would have been after every single play is downright insulting. I’m so sorry that scoring 35 points isn’t the best use of my letters because there was a more clever use of letters in some other space. I would have been open to paying for an ad free version, but 7.99 is a bit high. Especially with the annoying teacher popping up every turn. I finished one game and deleted the app because I was so frustrated with how long it was taking to get through a game between the ads and the teacher. Would not recommend.
Greed
by Uncreative_Nickname. on 2017/11/24 19:24
Liked the graphics and UI. However, there are ads after EVERY word played. Not across the top or bottom—rather, the game is stopped and you have to wait 3 seconds before you can clear them. That is pretty excessive. I downloaded another game, decided I liked it and paid for the full version the same day. Not opposed to paying. Being that the pay version of this game is even a tad pricier than others and there were a bunch of stability complaints in the comments, I don’t trust enough that the pay version is without ads and I don’t want to reward your greed. I doubt you would invest enough in Dev support. You should make money, but you need to balance the user experience. Choosing another scrabble game.
Way too many ads!
by Talon o 5 on 2019/11/17 07:54
I don&#39;t mind an occasional ad when I&#39;m trying to decide if I&#39;m willing to purchase a game, but after EVERY WORD PLAYED? The ads that are played take more time to get through than choosing a word and placing the tiles (in most cases.). Yes, some ads were &#34;only&#34; 15 seconds long, but others were 30 seconds in length. I&#39;ve played only one game (against the computer) and it took almost an hour because of the ads! I probably won&#39;t play again. One other thing I noticed is that there appear to be no &#34;blank tiles&#34; as the official Scrabble game has. It&#39;s possible I missed them, or is a setting I overlooked, or the computer got them... but they should be included, in my opinion, for the game to be authentic.
Amerigas ad is obnoxious
by TN Roadrunner on 2018/09/10 18:11
I used to play this game a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven’t played in awhile due to illness. Today I updated the game and tried playing it a number of times. Until the number of ads, especially the Amerigas ad, is significantly reduced, I will not be playing it again. I realize you guys make money on the ads but today’s update carries that to an extreme! After every turn the Amerigas ad shows up and I could not simply x it out. Five times in a row it took me to the Amerigas website when all I wanted was to continue my game. If there is no way for me to shut off these ads, I will not be playing the game again. I am willing to buy coins to shut the ads off permanently. I am not willing to play it the way it is! Who needs the frustration! I do not
Crazy Words
by You Will Survive on 2019/06/05 18:53
I&#39;m not a word genius by any stretch of the imagination, however, this particular game seems to use proper names. There&#39;s no way to challenge the computer opponent, which is frustrating. This computer player also only uses one dictionary and you cannot change that computer choice. Overall, it&#39;s nice to be able to play the game whenever I like, which is often. One last complaint, there are way, way, way too many commercials. They appear after every play and sometimes the same one through the whole game. Ugh!
Updates made worse, not better
by Dmv3113 on 2018/11/18 23:34
Quit messing with what used to be a great game. Now it is a source of frustration. You updated (not upgraded) the dictionary and we lost about a dozen 2-letter words. That sucked. I don’t know how the teacher feature works, but it used to work a LOT better. I catch it VERY often (when I want to play one of my best word turns) offering me a low scoring word. I figure if I find a better word, I should get to keep that best word option for later. I play single play at expert level and often catch the computer playing some lame 4 point word, when the same tiles, placed elsewhere would get a much higher score. Not very satisfying to win against such a flawed game. FIX IT!
Too many ads
by Js Daughter on 2019/07/21 01:59
I’ve always loved Scrabble. Love the challenge and the ability to play against the computer. This game started out great but as I’ve been playing, the amount of ads has escalated to the point that I’m literally now spending more time watching ads than playing. I know there has to be ads for a “free” app but this has become ridiculous. I’m now getting 30 second ads after every 1 or 2 plays. Sometimes they are “only” 15 seconds and a rare few are shorter but the vast majority are longer than the play time. If this isn’t fixed, I’ll delete the app. If I’ve got a half hour to spend playing a game, I don’t want to spend half of it watching ads.
Annoying ads
by TromboneSue on 2017/09/20 14:04
I paid for the Scrabble app a long time ago, something close to $20. It was ad free. My app stopped working two weeks ago and I&#39;ve tried rebooting, etc., to no avail. I went back to FB and started through that portal to play Scrabble but it&#39;s the freebie with annoying ads, esp the ODT ticket/text thing. I&#39;m ticked off that I&#39;m having to use the free app and can&#39;t use the one I paid lots of $ for some years ago.... I&#39;m happy to say that my original Scrabble app is now working again. It took a long time, months, but glad to be playing on the ad free app again. Thank you!
If you love scrabble you’ll like this
by Pretty stone face on 2018/02/27 16:25
It’s got a very usable and easy interface. Very fun to play, however this is the free version, so you get commercials thrown in at random times. I can accept that. However, sometimes you get stuck in ads with no way to navigate back to the game, unless you reboot your device. I refuse to do that anymore, unless I have a real reason to reboot, I’ll just not play their game or watch anymore of their ads until they fix this bug. Nor will I get insurance from the company of the commercial it is currently stuck in. I also wish the dictionary actually defined the words.
So. Many. Creepy. Ads.
by smickle37 on 2017/11/27 20:48
The gameplay itself is a good, classic scrabble. But, you have to see/watch an ad after Every Single Play. I’m pretty concerned that most of these ads are sexual in nature too. The app claims to be rated for players age 4+, but the advertisements definitely didn’t abide by that rating. I was trying to play a nice game with my mother, when a ”Wish” ad for a penis holder popped up on her screen! I never, ever in my life want to see a picture of a wiener while I’m trying to play a clean game with my mother! If you’re concerned about having the game stay clean for yourself or your little ones, try a different app. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay a pretty penny just to get these ads removed.
GET IT RIGHT!
by ANnoyed@sHe!! on 2019/08/19 15:04
I&#39;ve always enjoyed playing scrabble and play three/four times a night when able. This particular game has way too many ads and continues to crash every game I play. I would have loved to have given this 5 stars but these nuisances have become so annoying, I&#39;ve had to delete the game several times and about to delete again after this post. GET IT RIGHT! Ok it&#39;s over a month later and I see my review hasn&#39;t even been posted. It&#39;s ok though, I finally deleted Scrabble today because the aggravating glitches in the game have gotten so much worse and the enjoyment/relaxing experience has been ruined. Never had these problems with &#34;Words With Friends&#34; it may have been a better choice over Scrabble.
Fourth Installation ... same irrelevant Ad
by Nikkitytom on 2018/10/10 11:52
Third Update. I’ve removed and reinstalled this game three times trying to get rid of one obnoxious ad which repeats endlessly. I do not want to see Maryknoll School. Why am I getting this same ad over and over again. I’ve just scrapped it right now for the fourth time. Now I’d like to offer a minus star for wasting my time. Update: Can I give zero stars? This is ridiculous. I get a very long ad for a boys school after EVERY single day game. It’s long and it’s so irritating it’s ruined my game. Once again an ad for Maryknoll Schools has jammed up my game. It’s been blocking my game for half an hour! This ad repeatedly ruins my game. Get RID of it Way too many ads. And those ads are LONG. And repetitive. I get one for a school with the same kid jabbering away for an interminably long time. I hate the kid and have no interest in a private school. And the suggested “better” words are often very obscure ... or alternate spellings. There are other options in the App Store ... so I’ll probably move on. It’s a shame because this game is nicely formatted and works relatively smoothly.
Too many ads
by ❤️Smitchy❤️ on 2017/12/10 12:38
Every single move made in this game is followed by a 5 second ad that covers the entire screen and stops the playing. One is fine but not after every single move. No one wants to play a game that gets interrupted every turn by an ad and there’s no option to turn them off without creating an account through you’re game platform. The deluxe version is available for 10 dollars in the App Store.....really?!? $10 for scrabble? Does this version offer no ads? The bait like quality of your app and game interruptions have me switching to the other app that is the same thing they just don’t call it scrabble. I recommend others to check them out if you’re as frustrated as I am.

Commercial
by amishlady66 on 2019/12/11 02:05
The Allstate commercial Is absolutely annoying.
Too many pop ups
by jydkgdgkc on 2019/12/11 00:45
Would be 100% better if there were less pop ups. Every time I would go to place a word on the board a pop up would appear. Very annoying so I deleted it.
Limited dictionary
by firedawgbw on 2019/12/10 00:27
Numerous actual real words are not words according to the game’s dictionary.
Annoying

Constant interruptions from the same dorito ad. Computer after every move tells you what you did WRONG!
Horrible

Useless for Multiplayer
by wired4net on 2019/12/09 20:01
This greedy outfit wants you and your registered friend to install yet another app on your pc just to link to your friend to play in multiplayer. In today&#39;s world filled with companys stealing your personal data, that is a &#34;FAIL&#34; for me.
Can’t even use the app.
by ChaseKimes on 2019/12/09 04:54
When I open the new game box and go to friends to type my friends account in, the keyboard doesn’t show up onscreen so I can’t do anything. My friend also had the same problem, and I saw a post on a forum online about the same issue. It’s an app wide issue, if you download this app you will only be able to play single player and random matches. What a waste of time.

Frustrated

Terrible!!
by Velo9 on 2019/12/05 18:38
I hate the ads and hate that it pops up with Best Word and flashing stars for every Single word I play. You’ve ruined the game for me.
Bug
by big time alien swatter on 2019/12/05 14:21

Rampant Ads!
by Sarahswati on 2019/12/05 01:44
Each turn treats you an advertisement... and they are usually the same ones over and over!!! Deleting this app! Too bad ‘cause I like Scrabble :(
Scrabble
by you need to fix it! on 2019/12/04 21:27
I love to play the game with the computer, but often it does not play fairly! It will use words that are not in the dictionary and add letters where there should not be! ( for example...eee) I’ll still play, but sometimes I just have to ignore its play!

Can’t add friends from EA Sports

Doesn’t play by the same rules as the board game
by Jupy123 on 2019/12/03 19:52
This game allows words not found in Merriam-Webster and foreign language words, but not all. I’ve tried to use common foreign words that were denied. It is okay playing with a human who agrees to the standard rules, but not with the computer as an opponent! I cry “foul!”
Annoying ads
by EGP Parker on 2019/12/03 12:24
I have been playing this for quite Awhile. The ads would come after completing a full game. Then all of a sudden an ad or video ad after every single move. No way to modify it. It is not worth playing the game anymore.
Lots of ads
by Jlstar44 on 2019/12/03 11:02
So. Many. Ads. They pop up after every move! So annoying

Lost content of 2 games
by KatrinaVW on 2019/12/02 21:38
For the past two weeks I have tried to get help about this issue. Finally heard back from a scrabble rep today, and all they could say is: we’re working on it. Also, a friend disappeared from my scrabble app list, yet when I go to my origins/ea account, the friend is listed.
Could be better
by bleep456 on 2019/12/02 13:32
The computer comes up with so many words I’ve never heard of but when I look in the included dictionary it doesn’t give a definition, only that it’s an approved word. It’s a missed opportunity to improve one’s vocabulary for sure. And there are SO MANY ADS, it’s definitely a deterrent to playing the game.
Awful

Link to a real dictionary!
by c1w on 2019/12/01 16:21
On the one hand I like the challenge. On the other the ridiculous dictionary that makes up words not found in Merriam Webster or other reputable dictionaries limits the pleasure and the challenge. I would pay a premium to get a real dictionary and fix some bugs. Move the recall button away from the play button. Add an undo function for mistaken plays and a challenge button to challenge players words. Give me a real dictionary and I’ll pay a premium.

After years of playing, friends list gone!
by Cookiebaker64 on 2019/12/01 12:47
I used to love this game. Made Scrabble friends all over the world. For a long time now, there has been no way to connect to new friends (and no, I do not want to play through Facebook) and now my friends list has completely disappeared. I have one friend I have been playing with for years and we are afraid we will lose our connection forever. What in the hell is going on, Scrabble?

So sad this app used to be a lot of fun. My friends keep disappearing and now I cannot search to find them since no keyboard comes up! Bad! So glad I was trying to get this to work for my 70 old dad and I.
Frustrating - invisible tutorials
by grumpy today on 2019/11/30 21:17
Should be a great game tutor - scrabble with computer that shows you better word choices from your rack after every play. Problem is, an ad comes on so fast after the teacher shows what you could have done that you rarely actually get to see the suggestion, which has disappeared off the board by the time the ad ends

by Olympia Gardener on 2019/11/30 16:27
11/29/2019 -- ELECTRONIC ARTS: P L E A S E -- fix the &#34;chat feature on my iPad version of SCRABBLE! 11/19/2019 -- Electronic Arts cannot be bothered fixing the &#34;chat&#34; feature, yet today they sent me a questionnaire asking me to help them with their sponsors. ARE YOU KIDDING??? 11/16--CHAT FEATURE STILL MISSING. WHEN IS ELECTRONIC ARTS GOING TO GET ITS ACT IN GEAR????? 11/8 --PLEASE FIX THE CHAT FEATURE -- STILL MISSING! 10/21 -- PLEASE FIX THE CHAT FEATURE -- 3 months, and it is still missing! PLEASE UPDATE YOUR DICTIONARY! Since when is &#34;bulbing&#34; not a word? Have you ever heard of bulbing onions? Gardeners frequently want to know why their onions are not bulbing. When Electronic Arts FORCED players into updating the program, they eliminated the chat feature. They said that &#34;chat&#34; is now &#34;Opt In&#34;. BALONEY! It was ELIMINATED! Electronic Arts also demanded to know my age -- which is insulting and none of their business! I&#39;m over 21, so that is the age I used. HUGE MISTAKE! Age 21 is of child-bearing age so all of the ads that now play after each turn are baby-related garbage. ELECTRONIC ARTS -- PLEASE FIX THE PROGRAM AND RETURN THE CHAT FEATURE.
Word verification
by Momma J 74 on 2019/11/30 15:53
This game challenges my words, but I have no ability to challenge its words and at times I cannot find its word in the US dictionary. This is very frustrating.
EULA Required? Best word popups???
by BlueLynxZed on 2019/11/30 09:18
The absent minded programmers think I need a best word popup every round? Based on extensive play I also suspect the letter drawing is not completely random and is pulled from weighted tables based on selected computer difficult. Believe it or not it ruins the flow of the game... noy everyone needs to post words to social media... as I have been saying review after review for years - leave it to EA to ruin even a game as classic as scrabble.
One ad
by dnsisksk on 2019/11/30 01:31
There is one reason and one reason only this app got a 1 star. There is one ad that I can’t click out of to go back to the game. It only takes me to the play store. So for the second time I have to delete scrabble just to download it again and start over completely. Can we fix this please? For the record it’s Vegas live app!
To many ads
by didkckdkjejd on 2019/11/29 18:44
I played this game about three years ago and it was way better. There were no ads and it was a good game. But now, EA is money happy and wants more, by putting ads after every single turn in the game! It is just not fun and I think that they need to change that.
Beware of the ads!
by lady409 on 2019/11/29 14:54
I love the scrabble app beware of the ads in the “free” version. There is a gambling app that wouldn’t close. When I tap anywhere on it it tried to charge my credit card stored in Apple Pay $3 without my permission.

by F3 happyface on 2019/11/28 20:44
Of course EA would monetize a game to the point you’d much rather pay for the 7.99 version. An advertisement after every turn is ridiculous why can’t I just enjoy the game and after it ends play an ad.

This might be a good app if you could actually play the game. There are so many advertisements constantly interrupting the game that you cannot enjoy it at all. I have had one advertisement playing for more than five minutes. The ads cannot be skipped or stopped. Really terrible setup which make the game unplayable.

Long Time Players Aren’t Always Visible
by HopingForUninterruptedCleanFun on 2019/11/24 22:50
I’ve been on Scrabble for Years and love it. No one has the greater advantage. You play with what you get. But has anyone else had problems with long time opponents/friends not on the board every time you get on. Our games are still going, but they only show up every other day or so and some even have sent a nudge because I didn’t have them on my board to play my turn. Then they are there again - for which I am relieved. What is happening?

Bad dictionary
by Anthropologal on 2019/11/20 10:06
I play scrabble online with my mom and we joke how awful the dictionary is all of the time. Well the Teacher feature just told me I could’ve made “punaani” for more points. Indian coders got jokes I guess...
Lost all my stats and games
by Mr. Schaffer on 2019/11/20 02:38
I have been playing online scrabble for years, somehow I lost all my games and stats. I am very disappointed and I ask you to get my original games back.
Great
by Rosey Randall on 2019/11/20 01:40
I’m not very interested in games but this game, is the only one I’ve enjoyed. People don’t trust ten year olds but you need to get this! You don’t need WiFi or anything really. . . You just have fun!!
Cant get on too often!
by ex23: on 2019/11/19 03:49
I really enjoy the game but you’ve got to do something about the not being able to connect to play issues.
Use scrabble dictionary
by ranbru on 2019/11/18 22:43
Why is it that when I write the word “quas” I told this is not a word, but when my opponent uses it it is? I have used the scrabble official dictionary and my words in this app are not accurate.
wish i could give it 0 stars

Scrabble problem

I used to be able to play with anyone on my list of facebook friends. Now only 4 friends are listed. I cannot get my other players on that list back again. Why is that?

Poor app

Lot’s of problems with app. I get logged out frequently. Naming of players and opponents changes at random.
Terrible recently
by Vtgirllllly578 on 2019/11/17 13:23
Doesn’t remember your latest moves if you leave the app. Freezes and takes much longer between turns than it used to. If you are using the app on airplane mode it’s even worse. If I try to close the program it freezes up, even makes my entire phone phone freeze, almost like a spiteful retort for me closing the app. Not sure what they were trying to fix with their updates but the program is much worse now than a few months ago. Games shouldn’t be this frustrating to play.
Leave well enough alone
by JoeTK on 2019/11/17 11:21
I have been using this scrabble app since it came out. Over the years, there have been updates that for a time have screwed up the functionality of the app, later to be fixed by another update. The latest screwup is that I can no longer see the names or the pictures of my friends that I play against, and when I try to start a new game with them, I end up playing a random opponent. So, what’s up with this EA? Do you want more money for the app? I would gladly pay more for the app if you would just leave it the hell alone.
Way too many ads!
by Talon o 5 on 2019/11/17 07:54
I don&#39;t mind an occasional ad when I&#39;m trying to decide if I&#39;m willing to purchase a game, but after EVERY WORD PLAYED? The ads that are played take more time to get through than choosing a word and placing the tiles (in most cases.). Yes, some ads were &#34;only&#34; 15 seconds long, but others were 30 seconds in length. I&#39;ve played only one game (against the computer) and it took almost an hour because of the ads! I probably won&#39;t play again. One other thing I noticed is that there appear to be no &#34;blank tiles&#34; as the official Scrabble game has. It&#39;s possible I missed them, or is a setting I overlooked, or the computer got them... but they should be included, in my opinion, for the game to be authentic.
Too many ads

I won’t be playing this again. A waste of time dealing with the ads. Otherwise it would have been fun.

I have been playing for years and used to really enjoy. The ads have turned into a nightmare! Way to long, tiny x spots that take you to the web over and over, and some you can’t close at all. I’ll be finding a new word game!
Made up words
by bikernurse1234 on 2019/11/16 06:19
This scrabble allows you to use words that aren’t really words. It kind of takes the fun out of it when you can just try letters until something works, like TIZ.

Spelling
by outerpickle on 2019/11/15 19:25
When playing against the computer I disagree with some words they accept. The computer said GHI. is a word and I looked it up. It is not a word in the Webster Dictionary. There have been a few others. Please be fair. Once again, slope is not a word. Can’t take it anymore.

by Madi5on_ on 2019/11/13 02:47
I just started playing scrabble and I don’t like it very much because they have to many ads. When I started there was an ad after every single word I put down! I was like are you kidding me? Personally I don’t like ads and I don’t think I am the only person so I am going to delete this game. I only wrote this so people in the future know to expect ads and for the game maker to take the ads out!😡

Scrabble Love
by psantori on 2017/10/04 03:06
It is October, 2013 around 2300 GMT. In the U.K. a woman is playing Scrabble online and runs out of opponents but is not ready to call it a night. She hits the Random Opponent button and a player in America responds. Using the chat function, he asks the woman where she is. She replies. He asks if he can look her up on Facebook. She agrees and he finds several pictures of cats, a snowy backyard and, thankfully, a larger version of her profile picture. He asks, again via Scrabble chat, for her phone number. Being English, and also not knowing if this American is in jail or worse, she refuses. Thus began a relationship that culminated in that English woman marrying that American man on a paddle boat on the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. on July 11, 2015. I am that American man and that English woman is my wife and the love of my life. Thanks, Scrabble!
A great classic game!
by Martinsd on 2017/10/19 11:00
For as long as I can remember, Scrabble has been one of my all time favorite games! It is suitable for a most ages about 10 to 12 years and up because you can choose the level of difficulty and playing style. I really enjoy the option to either play against the computer, or with others who are also connected online. I find it very addicting, and can play for long periods of time without ever getting bored. The downfall is that the dictionary used definitely does not include all of the words in the English language. It is frustrating to not be able to play words that are truly legitimate. My other complaint is the high frequency of interruptions by the constant ads. When I first started playing this app, there were very few ads but the longer I have played the more ad interruptions that occur. Now an ad pops up virtually right after every time I take my turn. The app would be a lot more enjoyable if there was a way to eliminate the ads all together. Otherwise I am really liking this app and recommend it to others who have enjoyed this classic game!
Too many ads, buggy, word list not up to date
by ManetRamsey on 2018/11/28 20:07
1. This app has WAY too many ads, and the no-ads premium version is highly overpriced. I’m not talking about ads you can click away after a few seconds. There’s an ad after every single time you play, which renders the otherwise possibly fun “timed play” game mode useless. and these ads sometimes freeze the game so that you have to quit the app and reopen it to continue playing. The frequency of this makes the app unusable when you’re running low on battery. 2. The word list isn’t up to date. The two-letter words “ew” and “ok” were recently added to the official Scrabble dictionary, as well as the word “zen,” but my friends and I have found that we still can’t play those words in the supposedly official scrabble app. This needs to be fixed ASAP 3. The “teacher mode” is interesting but it sometimes spoils the game, allowing people to cheat. There should be an option to handicap it so that it can’t show best plays that could be made with tiles still in your rack, or a way to have it show you all the possible best plays after the game is finished.
Enjoyable
by RKPI on 2019/09/09 02:27
I play this with the computer, my first computer game ever. Have always loved scrabble. My main complaint is that it seems sometimes words are spelled incorrectly. There is some inconsistency with words and how they are spelled, I have noticed at times, which is a bit frustrating. And there are a lot of words that I didn&#39;t know existed. Are they true words??? But for the most part, It is lots of fun to be able to play on my ipad. Thanks to the creator of this! Lately am playing with others online, and is quite frustrating, as there seem to be many issues with the app, and I am often losing the connection. I hope u can fix the issues soon! It is very annoying sometimes that ads get stuck and you can&#39;t get out of them and have to stop playing! That has been happening a lot lately. Can&#39;t play very long due to ads getting stuck. Please fix it!
What happened to scrabble?
by ManiTobi on 2017/09/24 22:53
This was good and fun a few years ago. The updates made it continually glitchy. Now the &#34;teacher&#34; no longer provides any useful words. She would always tell you if there was better word out there. Now she gives you the lowest scoring word. So weird!! Anyway, it crashes occasionally and there are many times when it has trouble with the server. It&#39;s too bad. I used to love it. 😕 Again, your updates make the game even more glitchy. I have to reboot my phone after each word play. Going between dictionary and game, it acts as though you just opened the game. Replacing opponents tiles and taking yours off the mat. Dictionary takes several taps to close, or even to delete the word you tried and or change that word. And then will freeze and won&#39;t let you back into the game. I don&#39;t know what you guys are thinking you&#39;re doing or what goal you are trying to get to. But you have made playing this almost unbearable.
Double Standard
by Rocky2352 on 2019/06/12 15:00
This game is fun to play, but the computer uses words or groups of letters that are not in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary contradicting what the game description states. The computer uses foreign words; the computer’s dictionary provides meanings that don’t make any sense or are invalid; and the computer plays groups of letters that are just...groups of letters. Here is a partial list of the words the computer has played and unfortunately the game does not allow you to challenge a played word: “idiot, aliya, eques, urp, urb, eejit, qintar, gangles, unau, gude, klong, archi, cinqs, atigi, fujis, gript, tae, yoof, yomp, aswim, ablush, nyah, quin, deshi, quintan, bedad, vlei, rangs, balti, obe, torc, eejits, fub, bothie, ulu, cunit, ogeed, moho, eruv, wali, vum, fah, inia, toyo, myc, tians, izard, atigi, zincy, vivat, emics, zlote, coady, adown, broos, anga, tetrose, roven, hoo, cabover, yage, ougiya, musjid, oma, arroz, cauri, santim, huic, vivat, dohs, oma, juga, kubie, jugal, oba, wos, coden, areae, nortena, ridgils, forex, anura, caf, hymnic, eejits, sraddha, seiza, novated, tolt, arroz, erasion, linhay, zlote, effable, siddhi, paua, jibbah, djibbahs, ejido, ums, dout, vuln, agouty, zlote.” More fake words to come, I’m sure; so be aware as you play on.
Addictive
by Jill A. U. on 2018/08/28 13:32
I gave this game five stars although it can be frustrating when the game creates words that don’t exist or that have not been used for centuries. It also sometimes refuses to acknowledge words that are commonly used, and it appears to allow prefixes as if they are separate words. That said, I love the scramble function which allows me to see a variety of options before I make my play, and I love the fact that I can look up words before I make a play,Or randomly try mixtures of letters to see if the game recognizes one of them as a word. It would all be considered cheating in the real game, or impossible to do, but here it’s just a computer and me. And I do learn vocab words.
I miss my old scrabble game.
by bri1212 on 2018/12/07 12:01
The game that used to be on the App Store was a fun game, it had a full dictionary, and no ads. The old game is no longer on the App Store, they have replaced it with this piece of crap. There is an ad after every turn, not an ad which might allow you to look at your letters while having to sit through the same ad over and over again, but one that takes over the whole screen, and a dictionary that does not function. You cannot look up a word. The teacher either makes up words, or uses words from a foreign tongue. I can no longer download the game that I enjoyed and I understand it was all so that we could play on Facebook with friends, which for me, is something I won’t do. There also needs to be more customization available. The only real resemblance to the Hasbro game is the use of the tiles and the game board, otherwise there is little resemblance at all.
It cheats?
by WellingtonIV on 2019/10/06 02:50
Playing against the computer it uses French words, German words, sand-script words, urban slang, Chinese words, acronyms, etc., but does not allow any Hebrew words that are commonly used in the English language and are in most English dictionaries; it even rejected the word jewish which is actually an English origin word. Ir appears that the game developers have written their own dictionary and removed all words that they deem inappropriate or possibly offensive. The game has also used several proper nouns which is against traditional Scrabble rules. Playing the single player, beginners level I consistently clobbered the computer, magically when I switched to the more challenging levels, I immediately started getting excessive amounts of letters with the letter value of 1, or an excess number of one letter. I guess that is what the makers think of as challenging. Disappointing, particularly when it rejects English origin words that are in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
So. Many. Ads., etc.
by Bemmuh on 2019/01/26 03:56
I was so excited to use this app to build my knowledge but I quickly (in a matter on minutes) grew frustrated with it. As I play the computer, there is a 5-30+ second ad after EVERY move I make. It really distracts me from the game and ruins the experience for me, as I end up spending more time waiting to click through ads than I do actually playing the game... in addition to that, the computer comes up with completely arbitrary words that basically no one has used in a real-life sentence... even on “beginner” it makes me feel defeated - the computer gets words like “qibla” and then I’m over here with literally “E,E,E,E,W,I,U”... [I can admit to my own ignorance as I have never been the best at word games, but come one now...] Because of this, I give the app 2/5 stars. As the game says: “you’re doing great but there is room for improvement”.
App update- game not working
by ScottMoreno on 2017/09/07 18:29
I think they&#39;ve fixed it now but after my last app update: I have to delete and re-upload this game almost everyday for me to be able to play my games. This seemed to start happening after I updated the game, now it doesn&#39;t work. Non of the names of the players are showing up, the notification says four but there&#39;s only one no name who&#39;s played. The game is NON functional unless I delete and re-upload the game every time I want to play it. I have the latest updates on my phone and Facebook. I have let Scrabble know but nothing has changed. This game is becoming a real drag to play :(
Scrabble Crashing Constantly!!
by Typeway on 2018/08/24 18:16
I love this game and I play every day on my iPad mini against a friend in another state, along with many other friends. The past two days all it does is crash before a game, after a game, or during a game. I have done a full reboot more than once. I have deleted and reinstalled the game twice with the same crashing results. My iPad is totally updated. Although I have plenty of memory left, I deleted pics and other files/apps I’m not using to free up space thinking that would help, but it did not. Has anyone else experienced this just recently? A Scrabble friend also complained to me today about the same issue. We will have to switch to Words with Friends until Scrabble addresses this. Please advise or fix soon... thank you.
They’ve ruined this game.
by Really Perturbed1837468393 on 2019/01/19 21:12
I have a version of this game that I may have payed $2.99 for a few years ago, and I play it almost daily. I had to download this version on my work phone temporarily because I did not have my phone. But this new version where you have to look at an ad after play... It’s horrible. Do not play this game. You will want to smash your face against a wall. And scream. And swear. They don’t even offer an ad free version. DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME!!! Wait until they make it reasonable to play. Also, they dumbed down the levels of play. The expert level is not as hard as it used to be and the advanced is easy. They are just trying to make you feel smart. And the teacher will sometimes make suggestions that are not the best play. They have ruined this game. Way to destroy your own product just in an attempt to get more money. I hope no one plays it.
Ad-free board
by grandma1020 on 2017/11/01 06:11
I purchased ad-free board a few months back. I had to reinstall scrabble due to problems with the instability of the software, my screen froze a lot of times, etc., but I am now getting ads on my board or screen. I reported my problem to customer support and so far, they just sent me an email confirming receipt of my complaint but no resolution to my problem. I am still waiting to hear from scrabble. I enjoy playing scrabble but couldn’t stand waiting for the ads to finish before I can make a move. If not for the ads and the lack of resolution to my problem, I would rate it a 5.
Not too bad - Not too good
by Sherry9876 on 2017/11/29 02:55
Update: Frozen again. Can’t you people fix this? And you want me to pay $9+ to have an app that freezes frequently. You want my money but not the responsibility of working to have it run smoothly. Have just re-downloaded Scrabble after a number of months. At least some of the stupid stuff has been removed, and I can mute it as well as turn off some features. Some of the ads are a half minute - long enough for me to get interested in something on tv. I ignore all and wouldn’t buy in any case. Also, after playing just about 8-10 games, it completely froze. Had to delete and download again. Another complaint is that at the end of almost every game, I am left with 2-3 letter U. The computer seems to get an inordinate amount of the high value letters. Would love to play just a regular game against the computer.
Good game but ads are intolerable
by Sonrisante on 2017/12/05 17:34
I’ve played this online game for years. Works well when playing with friends. Some minor UI improvements would be nice, but its generally a great take on the classic board game. Love it. BUT! Recently the ads have “upgraded” to high resolution video requiring a full 30 seconds to watch •after• downloading. I’m on light internet so this takes forever, especially since iOS 11 has been release. Sometime I wait more than 30 seconds for the video to download before I then have to wait for 30 seconds to get through the blasted thing that I’ve seen a gazillion times before. If this keeps up I’ll be switching to a different game.
Hot game app
by PW55 55 on 2017/09/03 01:56
Been seeing improvements since my last review. Great game/app. Play everyday with an old friend. Very addictive and challenging. Lots of new words added to my vocabulary and Scrabble dictionary. Hope youngsters are learning to play this game fun game. Dec. 16,2016. Lately app has been freezing up, can&#39;t get teacher, check spelling to see if valid word, game board freezes. 9-2-17 had to erase previous review to get this end, still some freezing up, but turn off, wait, back on. Teacher is different, give best play not always best points. Learning what to omit in a play or go for it. Still challenging as always. 😃 ❤️ scrabble!
Something weird has started happening
by SceneQueenKJ on 2017/09/25 15:57
I&#39;ve had this game for a couple of months and this just started happening yesterday - after I play a word, every time, the little &#34;loading&#34; symbol will come up as usual, but then it won&#39;t play an ad. It&#39;s not frozen bc all the moving things on the screen are still moving, but it won&#39;t let me do anything else after that - I press the back button, I press the teacher button, I press every button on the screen and even try waiting a couple minutes, but I always end up having to close out of the app and restart it. I thought deleting and re downloading it would solve this but it didn&#39;t. This is not my phone glitching out, this is something wrong with the software of the game. Please fix this.
Too Many Bugs
by Ronzorro on 2019/10/21 04:32
I love playing online Scrabble but am so frustrated by the bugs in the program. I have paid for the Teacher function but it doesn&#39;t work on my iMac. I have to use my iPhone for the Teacher function. Another frustration is that there is no way to contact Electronic Arts for help to fix this problem. Also, occasionally the Scrabble app on my iPhone freezes. I have to remove it and download it again for it to work. I wish EA would fix these bugs. Other than those two annoying problems, I live the Scrabble app. I play it every day.
Scrabble is getting worse!
by Mysterygal1944 on 2017/12/10 15:06
ZERO STARS. The issues with logging in continue with EA. Today I had to delete the game and download it again. So annoying. Why do I have to log in almost every other day to EA to play Scrabble???? So annoying. Are you ever going to fix this app??? I would take away both stars if I could. Do your job and fix the game!!! Every time I try to log in, I am told I have the wrong email or password. I love to try anything to make the game even work!!!! Now it tells me I have the wrong email and/or password, so I can&#39;t even log on. And neither can my son, so we can&#39;t play at all. You really need to fix the app and soon!!!!! So annoying that I have to keep logging in; only game I play that makes me do it. And why does the dictionary have words that start with caps??? And get rid of the pop up ads on the IPad! I hat the 30 second ads that I have to watch!!!! No way to delete them and go back to the game. And I still have to restart my my IPad after every word I play; the game freezes and will not let me keep playing!!! FIX THESE PROBLEMS!!!!!! On 917, the game does not even recognize me as a player. Is it really that hard to fix this problem?
Crashes constantly
by S37362 on 2019/05/30 21:02
I really enjoy the game. I like that I have the option of playing the computer. There are many other nice features; BUT the ads after very single move is very, very annoying. To add insult to injury, after every add, the game crashes. I open the game up, I wait for it to relay the last move and it will crash again! This can sometimes happen 3 or 4 times in a row before I’m able to take my turn. Of course, after I take my turn, the whole ugly cycle repeats itself - ad, crash, replay last move, crash again, etc. I would enjoy, thus play this a lot more if 1. The game didn’t constantly crash and 2. If the ads were spaced out just a little bit more. Thanks.
Hasn’t Changed!!
by Desert Pat on 2019/03/27 02:28
I love Scrabble...and play it regularly w/ a club of friends!! Have played for at least 30 years!!! But I’m VERY disappointed that Scrabbie has not changed...UPDATED...in all these years!! Consequently, I don’t play on-line NEARLY as much (or hardly at all) since another VERY popular word game has been on the circuit! I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what Scrabble-like word game has just SWALLOWED the game market in the past 5 years that makes SCRABBLE look SO “old fashion!” And, worse yet, YOU DON’T have to endure incessant commercials (WHILE PLAYING) or play an invalid word to find out, duh, “it’s invalid, dummy, try again.” SCRABBLE is way too great a word game...and has been around way too long...to not have updated their features AT LEAST AS OFTEN AS YOU ISSUE NEW SCRABBLE DICTIONARIES!! Come on guys!! THIS IS THE WORLD’s MOST WIDESPREAD, competitive word game!! Please bring it into 21 st century!!! The only thing you’ve changed IS THE INCESSANT COMMERCIALS WHILE PLAYING AGAINST THE COMPUTER! ENOUGH ALREADY!’ What’s with that?? (Personally, I don’t need the incessant, unchanging background music, either. What’s with that?? Regretful Pat (60 odd years-player)
Constant ads on this version
by Tojon10 on 2018/11/15 03:09
I’ve played the Scrabble app on my iPhones for years and enjoyed it very much—never EVER saw an ad. However, today I upgraded to an iPhone XS and the way that the phone’s screen is positioned completely covers up the score so you can’t see it which makes the game impossible to play. So I found and downloaded this version which solves the score visibility problem but all of a sudden there are noisy, lengthy, irritating ads after every one of my plays. Breaks my concentration, prolongs the length of the game and is completely annoying! As a result I’m unable to continuing playing the game unless the developers either (a) fix the old version to view properly in the iPhone XS, OR (b) provide the ability to opt-out the ads on this version. Until then, both of these versions are unplayable. Please fix!
Tiresome Ads!
by mvb1977 on 2018/08/25 20:46
I love to play Scrabble. However, I don&#39;t play as often or for long in one sitting, because of the pesky ads after every move I play. It irks me that your competitor (WWF) has done so without all the snags your game has. This could really be a great game if you could find a way to make it more enjoyable and glitch-free. I looked at what the premium version has to offer, but the reviews are quite negative. Many people are saying that the premium version is a waste of time and money. Offer me an ad-free version that actually works, and I may consider purchasing it.
Goofy attributes
by Angry birds crazed on 2019/08/23 03:28
The ads are insidious and a waste of game time. The way it magnifies the tiles indiscriminately no matter where you place a tile wastes game time. There is a weird logic to the two letter words that are allowed: ok but not oz when ok isn’t a word it’s an abbreviation. Slang words like yeah but not old words like thee. The way that the board tiles that the opponent has dropped always re-drop and the score recalculates when ever you return from the dictionary is also very annoying. The fact that the tiles that you get from the bag after a drop don’t seem random; 5 “I’s” all vowels or consonants, repeating tiles turn after turn just take the fun out of the game especially when it keeps happening game after game.

Scrabble, I love you, but it’s not going to work between us if you don’t get your act together. There are thousands of free games online. Is it necessary to put an advertisement after every move? Do you know how many issues said ads cause? Boatloads. Frozen screens, blank screens, rerouting to purchases that were never selected. Tonight? You froze on the computer swapping out bad letters. I tried removing the game to reinstall it, tried leaving the game and starting a new one, tried forfeiting. All this still left me with a screen that read, SWAPPED, that wouldn’t allow me to make a move. I’m sad to leave, really. Maybe I’ll check back in six or seven months to see if you’ve really changed. I’ll miss you. Goodbye.
Glitch
by 2ChaCha2 on 2019/10/27 15:29
As of Oct 8, 2019 there is some kind of glitch in this game. When could not connect with friend player so I deleted the app thinking a reinstallation would solve the problem. Now lost all my stats since 2016 including my 2016 start date, highest score etc. Sorely there is no way “contact us”. Playing with friends was fun while it lasted. Sure wish I could recover my stats. Shortly after my Oct 8th review the scrabble app suddenly started working. Played about 5 games with friends. It was great! On Oct 26th there was a “tap to connect” which sent me in a circle thru FB. Then the app section that allows playing with friends froze. Waited hoping app would again suddenly start working. No luck. But all is not lost cause playing against the computer is functioning. Will try to reinstall but again will lose stats.
The app doesn’t work properly
by 7oy7oy on 2019/09/15 16:03
Developer(s), please fix the app. Once I sign in (AGAIN) I cannot locate any of the few games I am still in. The opponent I am playing who is sitting next to me has been waiting over a week for me to take my turn in the games. She keeps showing me all of the games we’re in and that she’s waiting but I can see anything on my end. I’ve logged out and back in. I’ve looked for updates. This is not the first time this has happened. My games show up when it feels like it then disappears for awhile. I do not have multiple accounts. I’ve even considered purchasing the $8 edition but if I’m going to have the same issues it’s no need to waste my money when my time is being wasted by attempting to fix the issue on my end. One star, since I can sign in. Please find a resolution!
Horrible Ad Experience. Game Over.
by <3Travel on 2018/12/08 16:55
Updating this review as I decided to try the application again after many years hiatus. Unfortunately, the user experience has only gotten worse. There is a pop-up ad after each and every word you play. Some of them are as long as 20 seconds. And, to make matters worse, they’re not targeted at all. So, not only am I distracted from the scrabble board, I’m repeatedly forced to watch an ad for something I already have. Or, an ad for something I would never have in a million years. Meanwhile, the dictionary is out of date and the “teacher” seems to have no motive other than to make you feel so good about yourself that you keep playing. Not good for those of us who seek to improve.
Glitchy Inaccuracies & Too Many Ads
by TakeTheStupidNicknameIDontCare on 2018/09/28 11:26
It’s not like I know all the words, but I know sone of the words the computer is playing aren’t English words. Also, attempting to make similar moves the computer makes is invalid or unrecognized. Example of a PC play: Team parallel (4 on 4) with Meat (I made something up), perpendicular none of these words make a word but we all know the 2 words are independent of each other; the computer is able go make this play but we aren’t able to make this play. And yeah, there are way too many ads; most games do 1 to 2 ads per game, per move is ridiculous. I’m losing interest in this game quickly because of the glitches and ads, only been casually playing for a week and a half from time to time.
Latest Updates
by Arly bug on 2018/07/26 10:25
I have loved this game for several years except....the last couple of updates have been horrible. I recently had to start from scratch after developing my stats. I have been locked out of games, I have been told &#34;it&#39;s my turn&#34; and it&#39;s not. Words that were acceptable are no longer considered words. Go back to the old ways! This is a huge part of my life! Please fix it! You need to make your print larger and also change the choices order such as “Play” and “shuffle”. I can’t tell you how many times I accidentally hit “Play” when I really wanted “shuffle”. Check out “Word” scrabble. They have ideas and incentives to make you a better player.
Ads ruin the app
by Rhopelain on 2018/01/16 03:09
The game itself is just fine. No complaints — when you can actually play it. I understand the reason for ads in the free game but you should vet the ads to make sure they don’t screw up playing the game. Some ads require you to rotate your device and wait a stupid amount of time between turns. Some, like the one for Baskets, just shut the game down completely. I assume the $9 version is ad free, but the write up doesn’t mention that so I’m certainly not going to pay for it. I might delete the free app because the ads are just intolerable.
What a shame!
by Scrabble81 on 2019/10/11 21:29
This is a fun game, beautifully organized, but I am going to delete it after only one day. It has the most intrusive ads I have ever encountered and it is absolutely ridiculous the words it rejects as not in the dictionary. Very surprised others have not downrated it because of these annoyances. Wow, this is the second time I have deleted this app. I thought since the last time I deleted they would have minimized the ad intrusions, but no they have not. I love Scrabble and this is a fairly well structured game, but the basic words rejected is ridiculous and the number of words the computer opponent presents which do not exist is astonishing. Twice tried is enough for me.
What is happening
by truviacrazy on 2018/11/08 03:15
Something has changed recently. I have been playing scrabble for a few years with no problems. Now it will throw me out in the middle of a game and I have to start a new game. Several times it also will remove a word I just entered and the computer will take over. Aggravating. Now it’s stuck on the progressive ad and can’t go back to game Got it fixed now stuck again on progressive. There is no ‘x’ to get out of it. Fine. Now it’s in trouble again. Opened the game, selected single, then it went away. Rebooted Several times, rebooted the whole iPad , reloaded the app again But nothing is working. Why do I get a message that you can’t get to the servers. I have played scrabble for a few years on my iPad. There have been problems before but This has stopped being able to even play the game at all. If I go to the App Store it shows a game that you can pay $9.00
Playing against the computer
by jfayefern on 2017/08/30 15:05
Play at expert level first to 150 points against one computer was challenging and fun except that computer would take inordinately long time to play, often overnight, and especially when I was leading. It would cause the page to go blank and freeze until I restart the program. Once when I was on the verge of winning with a bingo on my next turn, it had exchanged two of my letters! Not nice, but I won anyway. This has not happened so often playing against two computer opponents to 150, and both play faster. I love the game and enjoy your free App on my iPad. Thank you.
Poor grammar
by For Cryuing Out Loud on 2018/11/08 22:33
I have noted a poor use of the rules of English. Example: The word “farce” is a noun and always a noun, but the game play allowed the computer opponent I was playing to add a “d” to make “farced” as if it were a verb. (Ye gods, even spell check made it hard for me to force the use of farced.) Example: “Qa” is an accepted English word but this game does not allow it, or at least didn’t when I played against the computer. And why does this game version allow colloquialisms, proper names, adding prefixes and suffixes at random to manufacture words never before seen, and many other non-standard applications? It may be okay to play the games, but teachers beware —- your students will not benefit from playing if it is being used as a teaching tool.
Way too many ads and the Teacher is just annoying
by Mels37 on 2019/02/21 05:15
There is literally an ad after every move, and when you come back from the ad the letters flash. Quite distracting. And the “teacher” taking up time to tell me what a better move would have been after every single play is downright insulting. I’m so sorry that scoring 35 points isn’t the best use of my letters because there was a more clever use of letters in some other space. I would have been open to paying for an ad free version, but 7.99 is a bit high. Especially with the annoying teacher popping up every turn. I finished one game and deleted the app because I was so frustrated with how long it was taking to get through a game between the ads and the teacher. Would not recommend.
Greed
by Uncreative_Nickname. on 2017/11/24 19:24
Liked the graphics and UI. However, there are ads after EVERY word played. Not across the top or bottom—rather, the game is stopped and you have to wait 3 seconds before you can clear them. That is pretty excessive. I downloaded another game, decided I liked it and paid for the full version the same day. Not opposed to paying. Being that the pay version of this game is even a tad pricier than others and there were a bunch of stability complaints in the comments, I don’t trust enough that the pay version is without ads and I don’t want to reward your greed. I doubt you would invest enough in Dev support. You should make money, but you need to balance the user experience. Choosing another scrabble game.
Way too many ads!
by Talon o 5 on 2019/11/17 07:54
I don&#39;t mind an occasional ad when I&#39;m trying to decide if I&#39;m willing to purchase a game, but after EVERY WORD PLAYED? The ads that are played take more time to get through than choosing a word and placing the tiles (in most cases.). Yes, some ads were &#34;only&#34; 15 seconds long, but others were 30 seconds in length. I&#39;ve played only one game (against the computer) and it took almost an hour because of the ads! I probably won&#39;t play again. One other thing I noticed is that there appear to be no &#34;blank tiles&#34; as the official Scrabble game has. It&#39;s possible I missed them, or is a setting I overlooked, or the computer got them... but they should be included, in my opinion, for the game to be authentic.
Amerigas ad is obnoxious
by TN Roadrunner on 2018/09/10 18:11
I used to play this game a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven’t played in awhile due to illness. Today I updated the game and tried playing it a number of times. Until the number of ads, especially the Amerigas ad, is significantly reduced, I will not be playing it again. I realize you guys make money on the ads but today’s update carries that to an extreme! After every turn the Amerigas ad shows up and I could not simply x it out. Five times in a row it took me to the Amerigas website when all I wanted was to continue my game. If there is no way for me to shut off these ads, I will not be playing the game again. I am willing to buy coins to shut the ads off permanently. I am not willing to play it the way it is! Who needs the frustration! I do not
Crazy Words
by You Will Survive on 2019/06/05 18:53
I&#39;m not a word genius by any stretch of the imagination, however, this particular game seems to use proper names. There&#39;s no way to challenge the computer opponent, which is frustrating. This computer player also only uses one dictionary and you cannot change that computer choice. Overall, it&#39;s nice to be able to play the game whenever I like, which is often. One last complaint, there are way, way, way too many commercials. They appear after every play and sometimes the same one through the whole game. Ugh!
Updates made worse, not better
by Dmv3113 on 2018/11/18 23:34
Quit messing with what used to be a great game. Now it is a source of frustration. You updated (not upgraded) the dictionary and we lost about a dozen 2-letter words. That sucked. I don’t know how the teacher feature works, but it used to work a LOT better. I catch it VERY often (when I want to play one of my best word turns) offering me a low scoring word. I figure if I find a better word, I should get to keep that best word option for later. I play single play at expert level and often catch the computer playing some lame 4 point word, when the same tiles, placed elsewhere would get a much higher score. Not very satisfying to win against such a flawed game. FIX IT!
Too many ads
by Js Daughter on 2019/07/21 01:59
I’ve always loved Scrabble. Love the challenge and the ability to play against the computer. This game started out great but as I’ve been playing, the amount of ads has escalated to the point that I’m literally now spending more time watching ads than playing. I know there has to be ads for a “free” app but this has become ridiculous. I’m now getting 30 second ads after every 1 or 2 plays. Sometimes they are “only” 15 seconds and a rare few are shorter but the vast majority are longer than the play time. If this isn’t fixed, I’ll delete the app. If I’ve got a half hour to spend playing a game, I don’t want to spend half of it watching ads.
Annoying ads
by TromboneSue on 2017/09/20 14:04
I paid for the Scrabble app a long time ago, something close to $20. It was ad free. My app stopped working two weeks ago and I&#39;ve tried rebooting, etc., to no avail. I went back to FB and started through that portal to play Scrabble but it&#39;s the freebie with annoying ads, esp the ODT ticket/text thing. I&#39;m ticked off that I&#39;m having to use the free app and can&#39;t use the one I paid lots of $ for some years ago.... I&#39;m happy to say that my original Scrabble app is now working again. It took a long time, months, but glad to be playing on the ad free app again. Thank you!
If you love scrabble you’ll like this
by Pretty stone face on 2018/02/27 16:25
It’s got a very usable and easy interface. Very fun to play, however this is the free version, so you get commercials thrown in at random times. I can accept that. However, sometimes you get stuck in ads with no way to navigate back to the game, unless you reboot your device. I refuse to do that anymore, unless I have a real reason to reboot, I’ll just not play their game or watch anymore of their ads until they fix this bug. Nor will I get insurance from the company of the commercial it is currently stuck in. I also wish the dictionary actually defined the words.
So. Many. Creepy. Ads.
by smickle37 on 2017/11/27 20:48
The gameplay itself is a good, classic scrabble. But, you have to see/watch an ad after Every Single Play. I’m pretty concerned that most of these ads are sexual in nature too. The app claims to be rated for players age 4+, but the advertisements definitely didn’t abide by that rating. I was trying to play a nice game with my mother, when a ”Wish” ad for a penis holder popped up on her screen! I never, ever in my life want to see a picture of a wiener while I’m trying to play a clean game with my mother! If you’re concerned about having the game stay clean for yourself or your little ones, try a different app. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay a pretty penny just to get these ads removed.
GET IT RIGHT!
by ANnoyed@sHe!! on 2019/08/19 15:04
I&#39;ve always enjoyed playing scrabble and play three/four times a night when able. This particular game has way too many ads and continues to crash every game I play. I would have loved to have given this 5 stars but these nuisances have become so annoying, I&#39;ve had to delete the game several times and about to delete again after this post. GET IT RIGHT! Ok it&#39;s over a month later and I see my review hasn&#39;t even been posted. It&#39;s ok though, I finally deleted Scrabble today because the aggravating glitches in the game have gotten so much worse and the enjoyment/relaxing experience has been ruined. Never had these problems with &#34;Words With Friends&#34; it may have been a better choice over Scrabble.
Fourth Installation ... same irrelevant Ad
by Nikkitytom on 2018/10/10 11:52
Third Update. I’ve removed and reinstalled this game three times trying to get rid of one obnoxious ad which repeats endlessly. I do not want to see Maryknoll School. Why am I getting this same ad over and over again. I’ve just scrapped it right now for the fourth time. Now I’d like to offer a minus star for wasting my time. Update: Can I give zero stars? This is ridiculous. I get a very long ad for a boys school after EVERY single day game. It’s long and it’s so irritating it’s ruined my game. Once again an ad for Maryknoll Schools has jammed up my game. It’s been blocking my game for half an hour! This ad repeatedly ruins my game. Get RID of it Way too many ads. And those ads are LONG. And repetitive. I get one for a school with the same kid jabbering away for an interminably long time. I hate the kid and have no interest in a private school. And the suggested “better” words are often very obscure ... or alternate spellings. There are other options in the App Store ... so I’ll probably move on. It’s a shame because this game is nicely formatted and works relatively smoothly.
Too many ads
by ❤️Smitchy❤️ on 2017/12/10 12:38
Every single move made in this game is followed by a 5 second ad that covers the entire screen and stops the playing. One is fine but not after every single move. No one wants to play a game that gets interrupted every turn by an ad and there’s no option to turn them off without creating an account through you’re game platform. The deluxe version is available for 10 dollars in the App Store.....really?!? $10 for scrabble? Does this version offer no ads? The bait like quality of your app and game interruptions have me switching to the other app that is the same thing they just don’t call it scrabble. I recommend others to check them out if you’re as frustrated as I am.
