Love the game! Hate the commercial after each play, I would go to the App Store if I wanted to purchase another game. It irritates me to the extreme, so I don’t play it very often.. Barbara Graham

SCRABBLE?.!
by JenieLyn3 on 2019/09/16 19:11
So I have NEVER EVER played Scrabble before, and have always wanted to learn!.. I don’t know how to play and do not completely understand how to play yet, but I am having fun trying... Hopefully there are other people out there/here that are in the same “predicament “as myself??? Sorry for blabbing so much!.. But Thank You for reading, and for any help/advice that may or may not come from writing this... Love, Jen XO
"chat" eliminated -- UNSTABLE APP with GLITCHES
by Olympia Gardener on 2019/09/16 09:24
9/16/2019 Update - Chat feature still missing. 9/14/2019 - Unstable app. It starts to open, flashes, and then immediately closes. Cannot mute sound of commercials, but turning off the sound to your computer or iPad works! Same commercial 50, 60, 70 times is disgusting - (scantily-clad female lifting a weight and striking a pose). SKIP BUTTON DOES NOT WORK, so you are forced so sit through the entire advertisement - over and over! Still no "chat" feature. 9/12/2019 update - CHAT STILL ELIMINATED! -- Bring it back! 8/31/2019 Update -- The "Chat" feature is eliminated... yet Electronic Arts (EA) claims it is "opt-in". 8/22/2019 In order to continue playing EA forces its players into updating the game version and providing the players' age. (My exact age is none of their business. I'm over 21, so 21 was my entry). When the "forced update" was finished, "Chat" feature eliminated. Every time EA has an "update", the game gets WORSE -- not better!!! Previous updates (what EA calls "upgrades") are actually DOWNGRADES! Last year, EA removed the ability to preview potential opponents before accepting the game. This removal prevents you from avoiding abusive players and cheaters you've already played, or players whose skills are incompatible with your own (i.e., ELO ratings that are significantly above or below your own). EA does not give a rip! EA gets their money from all those miserable commercials we watch after EVERY play. You'd think they would do a little better job about making our playing experience SOMEWHAT enjoyable. Nope! EA could care less! Rating is one star -- only because I cannot give anything lower.
Scrabble is fun

I love SCRABBLE! It is great fun and it is great for kids who don’t want to talk at the dinner party
Commercial
by Ltgoblz on 2019/09/15 20:58
Seriously, 30 second commercials after each word. I’m done with this app.
Too many ads
by Mpr1230 on 2019/09/15 17:07
I understand the necessity for ads. I really do. But EVERY.SINGLE.PLAY? I feel like I spend more time watching ads than I do playing the game.
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!
Family connection
by ShaneOfDallas2 on 2019/09/15 15:47
I like Scrabble better that the newer WwF game. Nice to have such a classic on my phone and tablet. Play mostly with my dad which is really nice, especially using the chat feature.

I love the game! It’s fun , challenging and interesting. Only thing I will request is a block feature for people that continues to rematch you after they have beat you and won the game! Please add this lol.
Hate the dictionary
by What's in a noun? on 2019/09/14 11:51
Scrabble has always been fun, but the dictionary used in this game includes a lot of non-English words. Some Scottish Gaelic, but not all. Some Spanish, some proper nouns. So playing against the game program can be frustrating.
30sec Ads! After. EVERY. Move.

Down again!
by Notahikk on 2019/09/12 23:56
I report this regularly and get told they understand it is frustrating with no fix. For no reason I can see how many games are waiting but Scrabble will tell me to log in. I try to log in with Facebook and get to “you have previously logged into Facebook, continue? I do and it looks like it is working with no result. This goes on long enough until I am force forfeited in all my games and can “miraculously” log in again. I am about finished with this game! Also with the creator. Others make games.
Seriously Annoying adds!!!!!
by scrabble addict home version on 2019/09/12 17:35
Sadly I’m going to uninstall this app because of the annoying adds after each play. I quit the app for almost a year and a friend wanted me to get back online. I’m starting a coffee, wine and scrabble night at my home because the adds are driving us crazy. Calling it “SAC” “Scrabble Addict Club” 👍 Seriously I have a Discover card that I’m cutting up because of their 30 second adds after each turn! It takes up too much addicting time!

I LOVE this game BUT the ads have become VERY annoying and seem to cause the app to close A LOT!!! Not sure if creators are aware but it’s frustrating to the point that I might delete and go with someone else. Please fix this issue! It might not even be the ads doing it.

BS
by Butch503 on 2019/09/09 21:57
The worst feature is the way they allow a forced forfeit in a short time frame. There are days where you might not get to take a turn, and an otherwise great game might get ruined because of a short window of time by which an opponent can make you forfeit!
Chat dysfunction
by WordNerd2217 on 2019/09/09 14:56
Why does the chat function arbitrarily disappear (I play on an iPhone 8, on iOS 12.3.1)? Very frustrating! And please change it back so I don’t have to opt in to chat on each and every game. Please give me a universal chat opt-in that keeps me opted in as an alternative choice!

Ads are annoying and poorly timed. When game is on teacher mode, a better word option is shown but an ad jumps on the screen before I have a chance to review the better option. Improving my scrabble game is impossible due to ad timing.
Unfair and highly unbalanced app
by Kpaleq7 on 2019/09/09 03:41
Scrabbles was the first board game I learned at age five, nearly 45 years ago. I have played consistently through the years. I still think Scrabble is a beautiful and intuitive game. Unfortunately, the AE online Scrabble appears to be bastardizing the game by taking away every element of fairness and randomness that comes with tile selection. In one month of playing the EA scrabble online, it is my observation that the APP determines who wins through the unfair and statically impossible tile allocation. For instance, a player starts a game and receives tile selection ATHONII and plays HAT leaving the player with ONII, the EA scrabble APP gives OOO in replacement for a new rack of OOOONII. Let say the player plays ON in the next round, the APP gives EE in replacement for a new rack of OOOIIEE. Player then hits the exchange tiles button to remain competitive and receives a rack of GGDCPWV whereas the designated winner keeps getting Bingoes at every round. In my experimentations, after a player gets three rounds of consecutive Bingos and the other player stop playing, the remaining player playing alone all the way never gets another bingo till the end of the game. In the instances where Both players continue to play, the designated winner may end up getting five or six bingoes before the game ends. I think EA should stop the charade and give the game some semblance of reality. The point simply is this, EA scrabble APP is a shame to the fundamental scrabble idea where fairness and skill wins game. The probably of getting 3 out of four U’s and three I’s in a rack in exchange for three O’s and four I’s or hitting five consecutive bingoes is a near impossibility. Yet, it happens frequently on EA online Scrabble. My conclusion is that EA online scrabble is scam that games the players and is destroying the beauty of Scrabble game as a whole.
Fix the Friend Request for Cuss’ Sake!
by AGEON on 2019/09/09 02:34
I can only invite ONE friend to play and it can’t even be done in app. You have to create an EA account. It’s the 21st cussing century for cuss’ sake! Get your app together man! Gameplay is perfect, but not being able to invite as many friends as I like IN APP is mind boggling. It’s a superior platform to the other big name in scrabble apps but EA is getting their teeth kicked in because the app is a dinosaur!
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'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't get out of them and have to stop playing! That has been happening a lot lately. Can't play very long due to ads getting stuck. Please fix it!

An ad pops up after every single turn you take. Pricing choices are way too expensive. Don’t understand why EA Scrabble has 3 different apps, all at different pricing options. This one is not worth it.
Single mode ad. Every. Turn.

by zeldabutterchunks on 2019/09/05 17:52
This is the most inconsistent app on my iPad. The chat feature comes and goes at random. The game locks up so that I have to reboot or delete and reinstall to continue playing. This doesn’t happen every day but often happens on the weekend. Sometimes my opponent will take a turn and I have to load the game several times to see it. I randomly get notices that someone has played but not always. I only give it 4 stars and not 3 because I like Scrabble. If only it could be as good as Word Chums to use.

Prefer Words With Friends
by MJ word nerd on 2019/09/04 06:21
I hate the messaging in Scrabble - you cannot simply edit a sentence without erasing the whole part from the end to the point where you made a mistake! I prefer Words with Friends! All the features here are there and more! You can actually see where you might place words but you have to figure out the word yourself! You can also swap and play in the same round using boosters!
Great game, but

by bigsur808 on 2019/09/03 16:08
I have been playing this for a few weeks, and overall this is a great mobile version of Scrabble. There are just a few issues that take off a star for me. - there is a bug that doesn’t count draws in your stats against online opponents. - wish more stats were kept past just best word, best score, wins/losses. Would like to see average word score, among others. - wish you did not have to use Facebook to play against friends. - wish there was option to disable teacher function in online play for both players Otherwise, this is the Scrabble game you know and love.

The reason why I’m writing this is because I think this is an awesome app and worth getting.If you need help you can set teacher mode or you can hit best word and it chooses the best word you can make out of your hand.So if you like scrabble or word games at all I definitely recommend this app

Fun, but word bank is odd
by parkie90 on 2019/08/31 17:45
So words like “heil” which is German, and words from colloquial Scots are plentiful, but the word “zen” and words commonly used in English like “diem” as in “per diem” are not apparently recognized. “Wigger” — I assume the definition they have in mind is “one who makes wigs” is legit, but not anything with the prefix “un-“ unless it’s a word like “unless.” I don’t know where they’re getting their data, but datum, as in one piece of data, is also a word, and they are missing “datum.” May I suggest the OED?

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!

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'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't get out of them and have to stop playing! That has been happening a lot lately. Can'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 "teacher" 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'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't let you back into the game. I don't know what you guys are thinking you'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.
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'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't work. Non of the names of the players are showing up, the notification says four but there's only one no name who'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'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've had this game for a couple of months and this just started happening yesterday - after I play a word, every time, the little "loading" symbol will come up as usual, but then it won't play an ad. It's not frozen bc all the moving things on the screen are still moving, but it won'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't. This is not my phone glitching out, this is something wrong with the software of the game. Please fix this.
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.
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't even log on. And neither can my son, so we can'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!
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.
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 "it's my turn" and it'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.
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.
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 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.
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
Fun and learning a lot
by Buddy's forever on 2018/01/09 23:46
I’ve had this app on my iPad for so long but just never played it because I am always playing Words With Friends. But I started playing it today and am enjoying it quite a bit! I love how after you’ve played your word, the computer shows you other great ways to place different words and how to optimize your points. I’m certainly no genius with this game, but the ideas for other words is a great help. And since I’m playing as a beginner, I always win! Lol!
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.
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!
Crazy Words
by You Will Survive on 2019/06/05 18:53
I'm not a word genius by any stretch of the imagination, however, this particular game seems to use proper names. There'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'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!
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've tried rebooting, etc., to no avail. I went back to FB and started through that portal to play Scrabble but it's the freebie with annoying ads, esp the ODT ticket/text thing. I'm ticked off that I'm having to use the free app and can't use the one I paid lots of $ for some years ago.... I'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!
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'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've had to delete the game several times and about to delete again after this post. GET IT RIGHT! Ok it's over a month later and I see my review hasn't even been posted. It'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 "Words With Friends" 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.
From bad to worse
by Rozfrogs on 2017/09/29 16:10
9/29 update is doing the same thing I wrote about after the previous update. Why??? Didn't think this app could get worse but yesterday's "supposed" update made this happen. Now I can't even get into the game to play. I keep getting told to tap & sign into the game via Facebook. But when I do this I get a page that asks if I should open Facebook, which I have to do or nothing happens. But either Facebook never loads or it loads but there is no where for me to sign into your app. I'm just looking at my Newsfeed. Good thing I'm now friends with all of my opponents. They are having the same problem. Get some REAL game developers on your payroll and get this fixed. Meanwhile, we've all gone over to Words With Friends.
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.
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.
Constantly shutting down after you open app
by electricbrocoli on 2019/01/03 02:42
Love this game, have been playing it for about two years. But over the last month or so the app automatically closes when I open it. Makes it hard to play. Sometimes it takes me a whole day before it’ll let me play one word. My husband has been having this issue with the app since we started playing, two years ago. You’d think a large company like EA would have fixed this problem by now. Keeps me from spending the money on the premium version. In fact, my husband spent the money on the premium version and still has the same problem. Please fix this issue!!
Great Game but...
by OmeletteTaco on 2018/08/25 03:26
I love Scrabble!! I started playing and I just can’t stop! The online games are great because it is a new experience each time! The reason why I didn’t give a 5 star rating is because lately I haven’t been able to play the game that I love so much. When I try to open the App, it crashes after 10seconds and I can’t do anything about it. If the crashes for the Scrabble app were fixed I would gladly give a 5 star Rating and continue playing. Edit: Yayy thanks I’m back!!!
Lowered my rating
by IPad no skype on 2018/06/16 04:10
I had to lower my rating as this version gets locked up in the middle of games - particularly when I'm beating the computer. Very frustrating. It seemed that it was happening after accessing the dictionary , but last time I purposefully didn't use it, and it still locked up. It seems to highlight the "skip" option, when I didn't choose it. No way to get out of it except exit the game. Then sometimes upon opening the game up again, it says there is a game in progress, but when I choose to open that game, it's a brand new one. Please fix These glitches.
I love scrabble but hate this game. Please read developers!
by SMNunicorn on 2018/05/02 22:23
Scrabble is one of my favorite board games, but I don’t own it at my house, so I can only play it at my Nana’s house or her cabin. So then I thought that they must have a scrabble game that I can get on my iPad, and I was right! Then I played it for a while and realized that whatever dictionary this game is using is STUPID. Sometimes words that weren’t even close to word that is real came up. I have proof that those words aren’t real because when I looked them up there was absolutely NOTHING that came up. Another problem is that this game is rated ages four and up, but one time someone wrote the grown up word that starts with an S

So I have NEVER EVER played Scrabble before, and have always wanted to learn!.. I don’t know how to play and do not completely understand how to play yet, but I am having fun trying... Hopefully there are other people out there/here that are in the same “predicament “as myself??? Sorry for blabbing so much!..

"chat" eliminated -- UNSTABLE APP with GLITCHES
by Olympia Gardener on 2019/09/16 09:24
9/16/2019 Update - Chat feature still missing. 9/14/2019 - Unstable app. It starts to open, flashes, and then immediately closes. Cannot mute sound of commercials, but turning off the sound to your computer or iPad works! Same commercial 50, 60, 70 times is disgusting - (scantily-clad female lifting a weight and striking a pose). SKIP BUTTON DOES NOT WORK, so you are forced so sit through the entire advertisement - over and over! Still no "chat" feature. 9/12/2019 update - CHAT STILL ELIMINATED! -- Bring it back! 8/31/2019 Update -- The "Chat" feature is eliminated... yet Electronic Arts (EA) claims it is "opt-in". 8/22/2019 In order to continue playing EA forces its players into updating the game version and providing the players' age. (My exact age is none of their business. I'm over 21, so 21 was my entry). When the "forced update" was finished, "Chat" feature eliminated. Every time EA has an "update", the game gets WORSE -- not better!!! Previous updates (what EA calls "upgrades") are actually DOWNGRADES! Last year, EA removed the ability to preview potential opponents before accepting the game. This removal prevents you from avoiding abusive players and cheaters you've already played, or players whose skills are incompatible with your own (i.e., ELO ratings that are significantly above or below your own). EA does not give a rip! EA gets their money from all those miserable commercials we watch after EVERY play. You'd think they would do a little better job about making our playing experience SOMEWHAT enjoyable. Nope! EA could care less! Rating is one star -- only because I cannot give anything lower.
Scrabble is fun

Seriously, 30 second commercials after each word. I’m done with this app.
Too many ads

I understand the necessity for ads. I really do. But EVERY.SINGLE.PLAY? I feel like I spend more time watching ads than I do playing the game.
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!

Hate the dictionary
by What's in a noun? on 2019/09/14 11:51
Scrabble has always been fun, but the dictionary used in this game includes a lot of non-English words. Some Scottish Gaelic, but not all. Some Spanish, some proper nouns. So playing against the game program can be frustrating.

by Notahikk on 2019/09/12 23:56
I report this regularly and get told they understand it is frustrating with no fix. For no reason I can see how many games are waiting but Scrabble will tell me to log in. I try to log in with Facebook and get to “you have previously logged into Facebook, continue? I do and it looks like it is working with no result. This goes on long enough until I am force forfeited in all my games and can “miraculously” log in again. I am about finished with this game! Also with the creator. Others make games.
Seriously Annoying adds!!!!!
by scrabble addict home version on 2019/09/12 17:35
Sadly I’m going to uninstall this app because of the annoying adds after each play. I quit the app for almost a year and a friend wanted me to get back online. I’m starting a coffee, wine and scrabble night at my home because the adds are driving us crazy. Calling it “SAC” “Scrabble Addict Club” 👍 Seriously I have a Discover card that I’m cutting up because of their 30 second adds after each turn! It takes up too much addicting time!

The worst feature is the way they allow a forced forfeit in a short time frame. There are days where you might not get to take a turn, and an otherwise great game might get ruined because of a short window of time by which an opponent can make you forfeit!
Chat dysfunction

Why does the chat function arbitrarily disappear (I play on an iPhone 8, on iOS 12.3.1)? Very frustrating! And please change it back so I don’t have to opt in to chat on each and every game. Please give me a universal chat opt-in that keeps me opted in as an alternative choice!

Unfair and highly unbalanced app
by Kpaleq7 on 2019/09/09 03:41
Scrabbles was the first board game I learned at age five, nearly 45 years ago. I have played consistently through the years. I still think Scrabble is a beautiful and intuitive game. Unfortunately, the AE online Scrabble appears to be bastardizing the game by taking away every element of fairness and randomness that comes with tile selection. In one month of playing the EA scrabble online, it is my observation that the APP determines who wins through the unfair and statically impossible tile allocation. For instance, a player starts a game and receives tile selection ATHONII and plays HAT leaving the player with ONII, the EA scrabble APP gives OOO in replacement for a new rack of OOOONII. Let say the player plays ON in the next round, the APP gives EE in replacement for a new rack of OOOIIEE. Player then hits the exchange tiles button to remain competitive and receives a rack of GGDCPWV whereas the designated winner keeps getting Bingoes at every round. In my experimentations, after a player gets three rounds of consecutive Bingos and the other player stop playing, the remaining player playing alone all the way never gets another bingo till the end of the game. In the instances where Both players continue to play, the designated winner may end up getting five or six bingoes before the game ends. I think EA should stop the charade and give the game some semblance of reality. The point simply is this, EA scrabble APP is a shame to the fundamental scrabble idea where fairness and skill wins game. The probably of getting 3 out of four U’s and three I’s in a rack in exchange for three O’s and four I’s or hitting five consecutive bingoes is a near impossibility. Yet, it happens frequently on EA online Scrabble. My conclusion is that EA online scrabble is scam that games the players and is destroying the beauty of Scrabble game as a whole.
Fix the Friend Request for Cuss’ Sake!
by AGEON on 2019/09/09 02:34
I can only invite ONE friend to play and it can’t even be done in app. You have to create an EA account. It’s the 21st cussing century for cuss’ sake! Get your app together man! Gameplay is perfect, but not being able to invite as many friends as I like IN APP is mind boggling. It’s a superior platform to the other big name in scrabble apps but EA is getting their teeth kicked in because the app is a dinosaur!
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'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't get out of them and have to stop playing! That has been happening a lot lately. Can't play very long due to ads getting stuck. Please fix it!

by zeldabutterchunks on 2019/09/05 17:52
This is the most inconsistent app on my iPad. The chat feature comes and goes at random. The game locks up so that I have to reboot or delete and reinstall to continue playing. This doesn’t happen every day but often happens on the weekend. Sometimes my opponent will take a turn and I have to load the game several times to see it. I randomly get notices that someone has played but not always. I only give it 4 stars and not 3 because I like Scrabble. If only it could be as good as Word Chums to use.

Ads pop up after every move. Way too frequent and last too long.
Too many adds

The game is fine, but adds between every move are excessive and disruptive.

Too many ads especially the longer ones which your other products.
Love the game but there is TOO many advertisements.

Ads are annoying!
by Susan's scrabble on 2019/09/05 00:21
Loved scrabble before they asked me to update. It’s just not the same. Guess they do this to get you to upgrade, which I probably will in order to get rid of the ads.
Prefer Words With Friends
by MJ word nerd on 2019/09/04 06:21
I hate the messaging in Scrabble - you cannot simply edit a sentence without erasing the whole part from the end to the point where you made a mistake! I prefer Words with Friends! All the features here are there and more! You can actually see where you might place words but you have to figure out the word yourself! You can also swap and play in the same round using boosters!
Great game, but

Horrible constant ads
by Cymbre on 2019/09/03 22:53
Hate all the ads and will have to delete it. Obnoxious!
Ugh! Stop asking if I want to sign in via Facebook.
by Speter838537 on 2019/09/03 22:05
Sick of being asked to sigh in thru Facebook every time I open the App. Might have to find a new game.
Orher game ads
by Bi Polar Bear on 2019/09/03 16:32
Enjoy playing the game, but ads are always popping up after submitting a word. Very annoying.
Very good with minor quibbles
by bigsur808 on 2019/09/03 16:08
I have been playing this for a few weeks, and overall this is a great mobile version of Scrabble. There are just a few issues that take off a star for me. - there is a bug that doesn’t count draws in your stats against online opponents. - wish more stats were kept past just best word, best score, wins/losses. Would like to see average word score, among others. - wish you did not have to use Facebook to play against friends. - wish there was option to disable teacher function in online play for both players Otherwise, this is the Scrabble game you know and love.

Required cellular data?
by smallc2019 on 2019/09/02 01:51
No such thing as free. The game seems to require you submit to the endless ads and use up your cellular data in the process. I would NOT recommend this at all!

Too many ads
by alexandra.kay on 2019/09/01 18:36
Used to love playing this, but since updating there are now ads after every single turn. Makes the game almost unplayable.
Crashes a lot
by wheresthewizard on 2019/09/01 16:11
Constant crashing probably due to Facebook dependency.
DO NOT GET TOO MANY Ads
by LegendaryyTruth8 on 2019/09/01 12:27
Trying to teach my son the dictionary and how to play scrabble but there are just Way too many ads for normal game play. I’d rather play WWF or something similar just to avoid ads. What could have been a great teaching game has now resorted in ads galore I won’t be downloading again.
Good game but ads are annoying
by Merissa0828 on 2019/09/01 03:05
There should be an option to pay to remove them.
One of the best apps!
by Gamer 4 life 🎮 on 2019/09/01 01:12
The reason why I’m writing this is because I think this is an awesome app and worth getting.If you need help you can set teacher mode or you can hit best word and it chooses the best word you can make out of your hand.So if you like scrabble or word games at all I definitely recommend this app
Too many ads
by TabABec on 2019/09/01 00:26
Great game! But, a few less ads would be nice :)
Quit with the ads after each turn
by mjm630 on 2019/08/31 20:29
So tired of the ads after each turn. I’d rather have a 30 second ad after every 5 turns than an ad after every turn. This is super annoying. Not interested in spending $7.99 for the full game.
Best game ever,
by funnyStevie on 2019/08/31 20:25
Such a great game
Fun, but word bank is odd
by parkie90 on 2019/08/31 17:45
So words like “heil” which is German, and words from colloquial Scots are plentiful, but the word “zen” and words commonly used in English like “diem” as in “per diem” are not apparently recognized. “Wigger” — I assume the definition they have in mind is “one who makes wigs” is legit, but not anything with the prefix “un-“ unless it’s a word like “unless.” I don’t know where they’re getting their data, but datum, as in one piece of data, is also a word, and they are missing “datum.” May I suggest the OED?
They ruined scrabble.

by Jefffrombk on 2019/08/31 00:54
Scrabble app on my phone is a joy to use. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about this app on my iPad. Virtually, after every play one is molested by an ad. In short order, one’s patience is taxed to the point of despair. I deleted the app on my iPad.

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'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't get out of them and have to stop playing! That has been happening a lot lately. Can'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 "teacher" 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'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't let you back into the game. I don't know what you guys are thinking you'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.
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'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't work. Non of the names of the players are showing up, the notification says four but there's only one no name who'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'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've had this game for a couple of months and this just started happening yesterday - after I play a word, every time, the little "loading" symbol will come up as usual, but then it won't play an ad. It's not frozen bc all the moving things on the screen are still moving, but it won'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't. This is not my phone glitching out, this is something wrong with the software of the game. Please fix this.
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.
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't even log on. And neither can my son, so we can'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!
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.
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 "it's my turn" and it'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.
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.
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 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.
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
Fun and learning a lot
by Buddy's forever on 2018/01/09 23:46
I’ve had this app on my iPad for so long but just never played it because I am always playing Words With Friends. But I started playing it today and am enjoying it quite a bit! I love how after you’ve played your word, the computer shows you other great ways to place different words and how to optimize your points. I’m certainly no genius with this game, but the ideas for other words is a great help. And since I’m playing as a beginner, I always win! Lol!
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.
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!
Crazy Words
by You Will Survive on 2019/06/05 18:53
I'm not a word genius by any stretch of the imagination, however, this particular game seems to use proper names. There'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'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!
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've tried rebooting, etc., to no avail. I went back to FB and started through that portal to play Scrabble but it's the freebie with annoying ads, esp the ODT ticket/text thing. I'm ticked off that I'm having to use the free app and can't use the one I paid lots of $ for some years ago.... I'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!
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'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've had to delete the game several times and about to delete again after this post. GET IT RIGHT! Ok it's over a month later and I see my review hasn't even been posted. It'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 "Words With Friends" 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.
From bad to worse
by Rozfrogs on 2017/09/29 16:10
9/29 update is doing the same thing I wrote about after the previous update. Why??? Didn't think this app could get worse but yesterday's "supposed" update made this happen. Now I can't even get into the game to play. I keep getting told to tap & sign into the game via Facebook. But when I do this I get a page that asks if I should open Facebook, which I have to do or nothing happens. But either Facebook never loads or it loads but there is no where for me to sign into your app. I'm just looking at my Newsfeed. Good thing I'm now friends with all of my opponents. They are having the same problem. Get some REAL game developers on your payroll and get this fixed. Meanwhile, we've all gone over to Words With Friends.
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.
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.
Constantly shutting down after you open app
by electricbrocoli on 2019/01/03 02:42
Love this game, have been playing it for about two years. But over the last month or so the app automatically closes when I open it. Makes it hard to play. Sometimes it takes me a whole day before it’ll let me play one word. My husband has been having this issue with the app since we started playing, two years ago. You’d think a large company like EA would have fixed this problem by now. Keeps me from spending the money on the premium version. In fact, my husband spent the money on the premium version and still has the same problem. Please fix this issue!!
Great Game but...
by OmeletteTaco on 2018/08/25 03:26
I love Scrabble!! I started playing and I just can’t stop! The online games are great because it is a new experience each time! The reason why I didn’t give a 5 star rating is because lately I haven’t been able to play the game that I love so much. When I try to open the App, it crashes after 10seconds and I can’t do anything about it. If the crashes for the Scrabble app were fixed I would gladly give a 5 star Rating and continue playing. Edit: Yayy thanks I’m back!!!
Lowered my rating
by IPad no skype on 2018/06/16 04:10
I had to lower my rating as this version gets locked up in the middle of games - particularly when I'm beating the computer. Very frustrating. It seemed that it was happening after accessing the dictionary , but last time I purposefully didn't use it, and it still locked up. It seems to highlight the "skip" option, when I didn't choose it. No way to get out of it except exit the game. Then sometimes upon opening the game up again, it says there is a game in progress, but when I choose to open that game, it's a brand new one. Please fix These glitches.
I love scrabble but hate this game. Please read developers!
by SMNunicorn on 2018/05/02 22:23
Scrabble is one of my favorite board games, but I don’t own it at my house, so I can only play it at my Nana’s house or her cabin. So then I thought that they must have a scrabble game that I can get on my iPad, and I was right! Then I played it for a while and realized that whatever dictionary this game is using is STUPID. Sometimes words that weren’t even close to word that is real came up. I have proof that those words aren’t real because when I looked them up there was absolutely NOTHING that came up. Another problem is that this game is rated ages four and up, but one time someone wrote the grown up word that starts with an S
