Ads cut off game
by my570 on 2019/12/12 22:15
I used to love this game, but the last time I returned to it I learned that advertisements cut off the scoring at the game end. I really like to see my scores tabulate to the final number, but now I’m stuck looking at an ad, waiting for the X to become visible. Please get rid of the ad at the very end!!!
Why the ads before the score?
by TobyZ1234 on 2019/12/08 12:52
Now that you put the ads before the score you sometimes don’t get to see the score just the trophy.
Used to love this game but.....
by GoodvGrief on 2019/12/07 22:13
The longgggg ads are driving everyone crazy! Whyyyyyyy! So aggravating!!!!! If you read all the reviews, the same complaint resonates. The ads are ridiculously long! We understand the need for ads but shorter would be better. Please fix this problem or most of us will move on to other games. There are thousands to choose from. Thank you SOOOOO much for fixing the longggg ad dilemma. We all appreciate it so much! Now, if only I could get more platinum trophies on the Classic Game
Ads obscure stats
by iHiJump on 2019/11/23 22:20
Cant see postgame stats because of ads. Uninstalling.
Kill the ads
by 0904John on 2019/11/17 04:44
It is too much. Make it a few bucks but kill the freaking ads
Ad Placement Ruins The Game
by daVinci girl - the real one on 2019/11/17 04:41
I loved the game until the ads started popping up as soon as the game finished. I used to enjoy watching the scoring add up. Now I can’t see anything. Then, the final score shows. If ads are necessary, my suggestion is place them at the beginning of the game.
Ads
by htperkins417 on 2019/11/14 03:33
Ads mess with the feedback after a round. I’d pay to get rid of them, just saying. If anything have them pop up at a different time so I can see my stats.
App crashes getting worse
by MyogiMeetsTheKid on 2019/11/13 17:25
The application is addictive and fun. Too bad the medal shown at end covers the final score. But horribly, the app crashes regularly. Hard to make progress when the app closes out 30% of the time. With nothing in background, it still crashes. Thought it might be related to active advertisements at bottom but might be something more systemic in the apps code.
Ads are Killing this otherwise great game.
by D4rthcr4nk on 2019/11/09 05:16
I’ve had this game on my phone for roughly 10 years now- just about ready to remove it entirely due to the intolerably intrusive ads. <update> I did remove the game, later re-loaded it and the ads are suddenly much more tolerable. My history and stats are gone, but worth deleting and reinstalling if ads are killing the game for you too.
My favorite game, but frustrating
by L-to-the-M-to-the-A on 2019/11/08 18:54
This is my favorite game. I could, and sometimes do, play all day long. It is a super fun challenge. I love the three different options for playing. HOWEVER, it is very buggy. It crashes often. It also freezes more than other apps. The ads are such that in order to watch the full add, you cannot see your score when you are done watching, or especially if you actually click on the ad to find out more. I try to close the add as soon as it will let me, and even then I can only see my scores for a split second. Sometimes I am actually interested in what they are selling, but I prefer to see my scores. I don’t think the advertisers would appreciate players trying to exit as soon as possible! Also, the trophies seem a bit inconsistent. Sometimes I get a silver trophy, or even a gold trophy, for a lower score than I get when “earning” a bronze trophy. If these things could be fixed, it would be the best app in the world.
Ugh - ads ruin everything
by judirow on 2019/11/05 12:38
I used to love this game. But now you have to wait through a 30 second ad before you see your score at the end. Then you can’t see the details of your score. Grrrr. Deleting!
Ads interrupt the game and cause lost time
by MindfulMess on 2019/11/04 04:12
I love word scramble, but now ads pop up in the middle of my timed game play. It ruins my play. Please correct this.
Unplayable
by Shirley 1951 on 2019/11/04 03:25
Used to love this game. Until the ads came on in the middle of a timed game!
My favorite game but keeps crashing
by Run_DMC1991 on 2019/10/29 19:35
This is my absolute favorite app on my phone and would get 5 stars if it didn’t crash every 2 seconds. I can maybe finish 1 out of 20 games, which is hella annoying.
The ads are out of control!
by BDOW on 2019/10/11 01:04
The ads have taken over the game. You can’t even see your score because of the pop up ads
Hate this Game
by Zilla62 on 2019/10/06 16:50
Love the game for when I am waiting somewhere and need something to do. MOST IRRITATING IS THE TEDIOUS AND USELESS COMMERCIALS, I HATEcTHEM and I have deleted the game yet again. I play it until the ads start coming (this current case they were wanting to be nbuying more games). This time the ads started after a few games, really quick. So I deleted it yet again. This is disappointing. All I want to do is play the game, not buy others. I would happily pay a modest amount for the game without all the nonsense, but NO ONE is listening so out it goes (again), I am not trying it again. What a disappointing
Crashes Frequently
by Em_305 on 2019/10/04 20:53
My favourite game is the marathon, but it’s really annoying when I need to restart several times with different boards because the games suddenly crash.
Disappointed
by Gteach4 on 2019/10/04 18:45
I used to really like this game. Now it has ads just when your score for the game is coming up so you don’t get to see it. I’d rather it start with an ad.
Game Goes Away
by cohooper on 2019/10/04 14:33
When playing game, it automatically turns off and adds break it up. It shows that the app has been having a number of issues! Need to get it back to the way it was! I have deleted it!
I use to love this game.
by equusrider50 on 2019/10/03 16:25
Other game offers keep popping up and loudly hijacking my game before I even get my score. I use to love this game. EVERY game gets hijacked and I can’t can’t get out of the loop unless I dump the game and start over I won’t be back until I can pay for an offer free, ad free, interruption free game.
See all the reviews yet do nothing about the ADS!!
by mglvj1108 on 2019/10/02 10:49
Played this game for years, now the ridiculous ads. The App Store sees all the negative reviews regarding the ads...some are 30 seconds and then wait another 10-15 seconds for the x cancel button to pop up, sometimes it doesn’t even do that! Question, why have a “write a review” if clearly do nothing about the complaint or bad reviews? Apparently it’s a waste of time. Perhaps if enough people deleting the app, then will you do something about it? That’s how WE the players win and stop playing corporate, psychological mind games..the ole bait and switch?
It Was A Favorite
by CM005023 on 2019/09/28 01:19
The Ads after the game - before you see the score kill the fun of the game. I’m tired of it. Time to delete this and give up. It’s not fun - nor worth it any more.
Ads
by KekabaToo on 2019/09/25 13:11
Sometime a while back the ads frequently started playing DURING scoring… can’t see the bar, the time, the score... since at the completion of the scoring the trophy pops up and covers it all. Those ads are totally annoying!
Annoying Ads
by Bobbyrunner on 2019/09/24 04:09
This has been my favorite game. I love playing this game or I used to love it. However, you have added these very annoying ads that are meaningless to me and With them in place, I am unable to view my score. This is very annoying and meaningless to me. If you need to advertise these other applications, then play them before the game starts, so please remove them. I personally will delete this game, if these annoying ads continue. Thanks Bobby
TOO. MANY. ADS.
by zibjule on 2019/09/23 14:51
LOVE the game. BUT — past year there are waaaay too many LONG ads (often back-to-back 20-second ads). And they keep adding more! Absolutely frustrating and not worth it anymore. I would happily pay for ad-free. Until then, I’ll find another word game . (09/2019)
More Ads than games
by CC30144 on 2019/09/21 21:36
This game used to be fun but I hadn’t played it in a while and now the pop up ads are the WORST I have ever seen with any app. I would rather buy a paid version of this game and have NO Ads but that doesn’t appear to be an option!
Ads kill this game
by Big Tall Chris on 2019/09/21 02:00
This is a very good word search game, but the ads kill the experience. I can’t even pay to remove them. And I wonder what data they’re sharing.
Annoying ads
by New Yorker Lady on 2019/09/20 13:04
Have enjoyed this game for a long time but play it less now because the ads immediately pop up at the end and you can not watch the score bar. That was half the fun! Why not an ad free version that can be purchased?
Scramble
by PT 43 on 2019/09/17 15:52
Each update weakens the app. Ads interfere with observing the scoring. It becomes more complicated to use and very unfriendly to users. It used to be one of my favorites
Please fix the crashes or create ad free!
by OrigJennyline on 2019/09/17 12:26
This is such a great game - and like others I experience frequent crashing when I’m having killer games. I would totally pay for an ad-free version since it seams as though that’s what is causing it.
Your ads don’t allow me to see what I scored
by caligirl7398! on 2019/09/15 09:51
Game is ok, and I don’t mind ads but when they are placed where I can’t see what I scored, I have a problem. As soon as I finish a game the ad comes on while my score is being tallied. It didn’t do this before the update. So I’m deleting it. Fix it and I’ll come back.
Good Start—Now Let Us Pay to Remove Ads
by dcostaroberts on 2019/09/15 00:12
This is a fun, well-designed—although maybe not from a graphic design standpoint—app that will please fans of classic Boggle. I have two main complaints, though, one major and one minor. 1. The ads in the app are very intrusive and make it annoying to play multiple games on a row. The developers should definitely add an option allowing users to pay for an ad-free experience; I’d pay up to $3.00, maybe more. 2. It’d be great to be able to change the size of the letter matrix. 5x5 is the only option currently available. And while having so many options can be fun, it’s also considerably easier in some ways than a 4x4 matrix (as Boggle uses). That said, gameplay is intuitive and comfortable, and I really appreciate the use of an expansive dictionary. I’ve used similar apps whose dictionaries don’t include a lot of standard English words (“yon,” and “morn,” e.g.).
Word scramble
by hmekh on 2019/09/14 11:52
Word Scramble has been my favorite game for years - until lately. Since an ad comes up after every game, and is usually so long, I often can’t see the scoring section. Part of the fun was watching that little bar move along its merry way, but I can’t see it anymore. And why must there be an ad after EVERY DOGGONE GAME? WHY? Consequently, I don’t play as much anymore. The joy is gone.
Friends

Can you compete with friends still?
Love the game, hate the ads
by Kris 12 on 2019/09/06 02:14
I just hate the pop up ads. I would be willing to pay to have them removed but it doesn’t look like there is a paid version.
App Crashes
by Buddy134566 on 2019/09/05 14:06
I freakin’ love this game, but if I find words too quickly, the app crashes every time. Can you all fix this issue, so I can continue to raise my high scores? MT..!
Ruined By Ads
by Buffalo Ed on 2019/08/31 12:36
This is a fun and challenging game that is now being ruined by pop up ads at the end of the game. You can no longer see your time score. The ad pops at conclusion and when you finally get out of the ad your time score for the just completed game is gone. Just maddening and ruining the Scramble game experience.
Good game , intrusive ads
by D.D.M.T on 2019/08/30 21:21
This is a really fun game to play, but the ads cover up all the stats at the end of the game so you can’t see how you did! I understand the need for ads, but put them in another time slot so they don’t interfere with the game!
Was fun but not anymore
by Fun fun fun fun! Best awesome on 2019/08/30 16:52
This was a fun game I played a lot. But recently the ads pop up as soon as the game ends and scoring begins. You cannot see the results of your game due to the ads. Sorry, but deleting to find another game
Score is blocked by ads!
by howcanallthenicknamesbeta on 2019/08/29 23:49
Too bad the score is blocked by advertisements. It’s not fun to play a good game and not even know the score. What happens is ads pop up as soon as the game ends- which is also when the score is added up. By the time the ads are over, the score is no longer visible. After years of playing, I deleted the app and looking for another.
It’s the ads
by Jokelly22 on 2019/08/29 00:30
Too intrusive. Paid version available? I give up. Removing from my phone.
Ads block score
by MamaLaine on 2019/08/28 06:12
Played for years. Now worthless unless you don’t care about score. The second time is up ad comes on and often runs 10-20 seconds and goes back and might show trophy but score is blocked. I will check every now and then in the hopes that changed. I don’t like ads and length-but would accept that if it would just stop game so you could get stats.
Deleted Immediately
by RCL2 on 2019/08/28 00:56
I deleted immediately at seeing no way to eliminate ads. I rather pay a little than be bothered.
Used to Be a Good Game, Now Only Works in Airplane Mode
by sconnell2 on 2019/08/27 14:16
Been playing Scramble for awhile and have enjoyed the game. Unfortunately, I've always been limited to when I could play because after every other round or so, a loud advertisement started even though I have Sound turned off in preferences. I understand the need for advertising but the sound problem has gotten out of hand. As of today the loud ads start immediately at the end of every game played even before the score comes up. I'd pay a reasonable price for a non-ad version (NOT a subscription!!) or don't mind advertising that does not make noise or cut off the game. As it stands, I will need to delete Scramble if this is not fixed soon. Advertising is fine - uninvited audio and interrupting game play with ads definitely not. Looking forward to a fix soon. Will change to 4-5 stars when it works again. UPDATE: Dropped to 1 star because in addition to the problems cited, after nearly a week, they've still not responded to an email to their support. Am starting to wonder if it's some kind of spam scam. We all make mistakes, but if they're not even willing to send out a form response saying that they're working on a fix, it seems like a lost cause. UPDATE2: Raised to 3 stars because I figured out a workaround to the serious bug that they seem to have no interest in fixing or responding to. Found out accidentally while traveling: in airplane mode, the game works just fine with no interruptions or unwanted audio, cutting out the intrusive advertising altogether! This is probably not what they or their advertisers were expecting, but if they don't want to fix the game this is inconvenient but functional.
Only 2 Stars
by mendemj on 2019/08/24 23:06
Ive loved this game for years but now that the ads are ending my time im not pleased. I will be deleting this app
Ads
by fineory on 2019/08/24 06:27
Love this game but all of a sudden there’s so many ads. It’s relentless and after every game. It’s awful! Make them stop!!!!!!
Ads
by Fris_K on 2019/08/23 11:09
Severely dislike how the ads now pop-up when getting the score now. It is to the point of deleting the game from my phone. It’s too bad because the game itself is pretty good.
Too many ads, can’t even see score!
by l&a&a on 2019/08/22 10:48
Why even play if the ads cover over the score!?
What happened!
by Karen Mack on 2019/08/21 01:36
The game continues to freeze up. Reinstalled several times. Used to be my favorite game. No more. So sad.
Ads
by jonathomp on 2019/08/20 13:18
The game is fun but finding words is almost too easy. Unlike some other word search games, you will never run out of words before the time runs out, so you spend your whole time looking for the longest words possible. Also, a full screen ad comes up at the end of each game and by the time you are able to close it, your score screen has already finished. I get frustrated every time.
What Are You Doing
by warmer-part-of-winter on 2019/08/15 23:52
This used to be my favourite go to game then it started crashing crashing and crashing. Now there is no time for it to crash because there is a long commercial after EVERY GAME!! Why don’t you just let us pay you more money and then get out of way....
Can’t play anymore
by Cheryl Derby on 2019/08/14 12:02
Have been playing this game for years and now I’ll have to find a new one. The ads are ridiculous- pop up as soon as game is over and can’t even see score most of the time. Can’t play this anymore- it’s too annoying!
Updated
by hornhopper on 2019/08/13 20:35
Updated recently but one problem fixed for another. Now the ads show up before the score is counted and depending on how long the ad is you may not even see the score. Poor. Needs another update.
Word Scramble ads are annoying
by Archie 503 on 2019/08/10 14:49
I’ve not played this game much recently but after starting again the last couple of days, will probably delete it. The ads after EVERY game are loud, intrusive and annoying.
This Used to Be One of My Favorite Games
by LisaSimpsonOH on 2019/08/10 02:31
Now the ads cover the score calculation, making it utterly useless. I might delete if this isn’t fixed soon.
What did you do?!
by Buh, bye on 2019/08/09 05:48
By making it 5 x 5 you dumbed it down! It’s not challenging anymore ....as in not fun.
Stat bars: please.
by Flight Lady on 2019/08/07 17:51
Great game until the ad starts BEFORE you get to see how you did. BLECH!! FIX THIS. I AM DELETING THIS APPP!! Fix it so we can SEE the scoring bars !!!!
Ads interrrupt
by de-chatify on 2019/08/07 01:53
Like everyone else is writing lately, I can’t stand the latest update because the ads come up the second that your game ends so that you can’t even see your score first. And because of the way the game shows you your trophy after the score shows, you may NEVER be able to make out how you did. Fun game. Horrible update.
Annoying advertising - you have ruined this game
by CharCruiser on 2019/08/06 17:06
A new update now prompts an advertisement pop up when you finish each game, BEFORE you get your score... Totally disrupts the flow of the game! I play much less often and I don’t bother waiting for my score. After one game, I close it, and play something else.
Oboe
by VPMD on 2019/08/06 13:40
Good app ruined by excessive ads. Will not even show score on IPhone before pop up ad. An ad free version would be worth a modest price.
Ads Too Obtrusive!!!
by Oldesquire on 2019/08/06 04:01
Have played this game and enjoyed it for years until recently when the ads became much more obtrusive. Now an ad comes up after completing a game. There’s no way to close the ad, but even worse, the ad completely uses up the time that the game takes to tally my score, so I never get to learn how well I did! Please change this, sooner rather than later!
Can’t see score because of ads
by Brook & Christy Rolka on 2019/08/05 01:58
They’ve added ads after game ends but while your score is calculating, so you no longer know how you did because the ad runs the whole time and blocks you from seeing it. 1 Star until they move the ads back to after the score is fully calculated.
Word scramble
by jcb405 on 2019/08/04 21:25
I use to love the game. Now that the ads are before scoring I no level ne’er enjoy and will no longer play
What happened with the adds?
by bdseanp1 on 2019/08/04 17:28
I loved this game and was fine with a giant ad if I didn’t get a trophy. Now, now no matter what ads are twice as long and I don’t see my point tally. Boo I’ll pay for that to go away.
Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!
by avonne55 on 2019/08/04 08:05
It was bad enough when the game kept crashing. Now you can’t see your scores because of the ads that pop up immediately after reaching the time limit. I’ve been playing this for years but will now look for a different word game.
Last update ruined this game
by Sexymeerkat1 on 2019/08/03 22:08
I really enjoyed this game for a while. But now when your time is up a pop up ad hides he screen. So you don’t get to watch your score build up, and if it’s a long ad you don’t see your score or even what trophy you won.
Too many adds
by catterinia on 2019/08/03 03:26
I can’t even see my score at the end because adds interfere. Very frustrating!
Ads in latest update Impact results
by Gmcg62 on 2019/08/03 00:57
So the last update injects the ads just after you finish playing. Which means you can miss seeing your score. Very disappointing. I understand the need for ads. But now you’ve really impacted the results of the game. Tip for those that still want to play - go to airplane mode. That way the ads are briefer so you have a chance of seeing your score.
Best word game ever
by Cdcargle on 2019/08/02 17:10
I give it a 3 because the game crashes non-stop. I’ve deleted this game off my iPad and iPhone about six times and always wind up reinstalling because I love this game so much. I would pay for it!!!!!!!!! Keep in mind that I’ve never paid for a game before.
Ads are becoming more intrusive
by unhappycamper#1945 on 2019/08/02 00:23
I really enjoy this game but lately the adds are more frequent and louder. I would be happy to pay for an ad free version but for now I have to delete the game.
Loud Annoying and intrusive ads
by cupcake 54 on 2019/08/01 20:56
I’ve had this game for years and now the ads are loud, pop up before I know the game is over and hard to stop. The game us good fun, tho many words are not recognized and scoring is weird.... I think I’m going to stop playing after reading this review! Lol
Ads are blocking score
by J W Zinger on 2019/07/31 14:22
I have enjoy this game for a long time, at least 4-5 years. I’ve managed to tolerate the ads because I enjoyed the format of the game. But just recently the ads pop up immediately following game, during the scoring calculation, and unfortunately it doesn’t allow me to disconnect the ad for several seconds. Therefore, I miss seeing my final score. It certainly adds to the annoyance and will probably delete the app now.
Too many ads
by xxkkkxxc on 2019/07/30 18:38
The ads pop up before you can see your score. When the answer finished the score is gone.
Ads untenable
by Solcat70 on 2019/07/30 04:54
This has been my favorite game for years except for the intrusive ads. I’ve found ways to cope with, and adjust for the ads but not now. They have gotten way worse, you can’t see your score directly after the game due to an ad popping up and obscuring the screen that takes several seconds to get rid of. So far the only way I’ve found to put a stop to it is to disconnect from any internet connection and then you can play fairly uninterrupted. Game developers on this game clearly don’t listen to calls for a paid and ad free version that would be gladly purchased by many. It’s too bad. The ads actually make me hate the very products they are shilling. Bet the advertisers never thought this method might actually backfire.
Stops working
by Bluefan1996 on 2019/07/30 02:17
Randomly stops working in the middle of game. Fun but very annoying to be kicked out frequently. Disappointing. The frequency of crashing is unbelievable Update: the new ad format is terrible. Can’t see your score..ad pops up immediately and very hard to delete. I played everyday, not anymore until they fix this issue
They should rename it “Crashes and Ads”
by I’ve deleted it on 2019/07/29 14:32
Played this game for years. It crashes more every time I use it. I’ve asked for help several times with no response. Now the ads pop up over the screen the second the game ends (if it doesn’t crash first) and I can’t even see the scores. If you don’t care enough to fix it or even respond to your users then it’s time to delete.
Congrats
by Mellow1964 on 2019/07/29 01:57
Congrats on finding a new way to make me hate advertisers. I understand the need to make money and would possibly buy products from your advertisers if they were not inserted in such an obnoxious way! You finish a game and cannot even see your score and get a high volume advertisement. Why not force us to watch before playing? I will never if at all possible purchase any item advertised on your game!
Ads
by Cherylfalke on 2019/07/28 20:55
I loved this game when I first started playing it, but now there are so many ads that it’s not enjoyable. Is there a paid version that allows the user to not see ads?
Not Cool!
by knightlady02 on 2019/07/28 18:42
Game just started pattern of placing ads right before time runs out on game so you can’t finish final run, at least with blitz mode - not cool.
Enough of the ads already!
by rblue1950 on 2019/07/28 07:07
Until yesterday this was my favorite game. I would even put up with the occasional crash. But now with the dual ads the instant my two minutes are up, I can no longer see how my score develops. I’m done with it! Sorry, but if I no longer play the game, your ads are a costly waste.
No no no!
by Marciemay on 2019/07/27 22:30
I don’t want to play the games that you’re offering me while I’m waiting to see my results of the game I just played. Instead of seeing how I did and what I did, via the bar display, you’re showing me games that I’m not interested in - you have ruined this game.
Totally addictive. BUT why the change?
by Rainbow722 on 2019/07/27 05:26
Was really addicted to this game but suddenly the ads pop up before I can watch the progress bar to see if I’ve gotten closer to the next cup! Also, it is annoying when the sound from an ad plays while you are playing a round and there is not an ad on screen!
Love the game but.....
by B2cruise on 2019/07/27 04:03
This game is loads of fun and challenging but the ads keep interrupting the game and my scores suffer. Very frustrating. I would pay to not have any ads. Think it’s time to find new games. I’d give this a 5 star rating without the ads
Don’t buy: Ads are very annoying and take over the game
by Counting Blue Whales on 2019/07/27 00:44
I used to love playing, put it aside for a long time and came back to it. But now the ads come after the end of every game and take over the whole screen so you can’t see your score progress or what happened and are very annoying to clear. I complained to the support and they said they don’t support this game. Don’t buy!!!! I’d pay for ad free version but no option offered.
I used to enjoy it...
by Snailman22030 on 2019/07/26 16:07
24 Aug 2017 - I gave it some time and downloaded it again but the GAME IS STILL INTERRUPTED BY ADS. I WILL NOT CLICK THE ADS. I CLOSE SE THE GAME INSTEAD AND WILL DELETE THIS GAME IF YOU CONTINUE THAT S ANNOYING PRACTICE. --- What can I say? It's actually a brilliant game but at the risk of sounding like a broken record among all the others here... The adds are insanely annoying, cannot be shut off and some of them are even "threatening" saying that my device is infected and I must click here etc. What a load! Also... The score bars were done away with on the last update. It can be played in Airplane Mode but I can't afford to leave my phone turned off while I play a silly game. I'm forced to delete this game. Update: Things improves but now I’ve stopped playing again since the most recent update. The ads interrupt the scoring. That needs to be fixed before I’ll play again.
Hey...
by Nutsin33037 on 2019/07/26 14:34
What’s with all the “instant ads,” before you see your scores add up? That’s super annoying!!
Really Dislike the noisy ads
by 64152 on 2019/07/25 17:56
I enjoy playing this game, but I really dislike the noisy ads. I play the game when I have a few quiet minutes - between meetings or sitting in a public space waiting for someone - places where I have no desire to call attention to myself. When my phone starts blaring loudly it’s annoying and embarrassing. I don’t know why anyone thinks that embarrassing me in public would make me want to buy something. Why don’t you offer an ad-free version of the game?
Needs to be updated
by Snap Creative on 2019/07/18 23:29
It won’t open (iPad). I did a soft reset and it still will not open. I used to play daily
What the heck?!?
by PearlHazel on 2019/07/15 20:01
This is my favorite game ever and I play it daily. However, it crashes constantly now. What’s up with that?! Fix it please or there’s no point playing it. Who needs the frustration.
Word scramble
by woodlily3 on 2019/07/04 17:03
Ads freeze up the game forcing a total shutdown and reboot or they disrupt a game. I like this game a lot and would pay for it if ads were removed. The way they work is wrong.
Crashes Constantly
by tiredofadcrashes on 2019/07/04 14:15
In the middle of games an ad will pop up, and as if that’s not bad enough, when I try to leave the ad the app crashes and I lose the game I was playing. This is happening more and more frequently without rhyme or reason as to when (except it seems to happen more when I’m playing well).
Crashes from Ads
by Mcvaughn89 on 2019/06/28 22:27
Love playing this game but it’s constantly having a pop up ad in the middle of my game that crashes the app so I lose my game. Really frustrating.
Advertising makes game unplayable
by FastPhil100 on 2019/06/18 23:48
I used to love this game, but now advertising runs WHILE I'm playing the game and that audio makes it very distracting. Plus, when those ads run, the game lags, which lowers scoring. Until they stop ruining the player's experience by intrusive advertising, I'd avoid playing this one.
Help!
by KnewKneeChris on 2019/06/10 11:08
I love this game but now it just freezes. Any solutions?
Great game but........
by Daughterofapilot on 2019/06/08 07:24
I really like this game and I would give it 4 stars if it didn’t have these issues and I hope to see them fixed soon. I play it every day and I really enjoy it but there are a few issues, every now and then the app will crash and I have to start the game over which isn’t that big of a deal but the app shouldn’t be crashing so much. The other issue is the ads and the pop ups. It would be nice to be able to get rid of them. It’s annoying and distracting to see ads when I am trying to play the game. These are the only issues I’ve experienced and while they are annoying they won’t stop me from playing.
Fun
by SEMO Bootheel on 2019/06/04 00:31
Fun game to play, but it has issues on crashing need to fix the bugs.
Too much noise
by pacekeeper on 2019/05/24 02:34
Liked game until while playing crazy ads and crazy music goes on and interferes with play. Deleted but try once more but if noise continues will delete permanently.
Crashing...
by Boyydz69 on 2019/05/14 06:20
Repeatedly crashing. Had to reinstall and lost my 20000-game data file from 4 years’ play! Great game, but it has to work.
Crashes
by Bobjr56 on 2019/05/13 18:56
Began crashing every so often weeks ago. Now crashing almost every game played. I uninstalled an reinstalled it. The problem continued. I uninstalled the game.
YAY!!!
by MarieGoble on 2017/04/28 12:39
Suddenly the stat bars are back this AM! Yay, yay, YAY!!!! Thank you! Now if you could make the ads just a little less intrusive (even less frequent) this game would be back to just about PERFECT! THANK YOU for fixing the status bars! Your rating just went up a star.👍 I have played and loved this game for several years now, but there have been changes recently that make it hard to love the game anymore. The ads...SO ANNOYING AND INTRUSIVE! They suddenly pop in during the middle of play often blocking the letters in the lower right hand corner of the game board and they seriously mess with one's focus. One of the reasons I used to love this game is that it was ad-free. Do you (and the advertisers) really think I'm going to leave my current puzzle and go watch the ads or is the hope that people will accidentally tap on the ad instead of letters and be forced to exit to return to the game? A real turn-off! WHO thought it was a brilliant idea to get rid of the score bars that show how you did in a game (the bars that used to fill up during scoring)? That wasn't "broken", so why mess with that??? PLEASE put the progress bars back to the way they used to be! The genius who changed the scoring bars was very wrong. Sadly, because of recent changes I find myself enjoying the game less and less and looking for other challenging word games. These "improvements" (NOT!) need to be fixed ASAP. I'm ready to go elsewhere. ):
Fave game, when it works right
by trailnut on 2017/12/25 22:31
**Update. Still love this game and it worked pretty well for a while. Now we’re back to it crashing with ads. It freezes such that it has to be deleted and reinstalled. Last time it last two plays before it froze and had to be deleted. (It had averaged 30-50 plays the last week.) And it is a permanent freeze these days. I’ve let it sit for a day and it was still irretrievable without reinstall. Can’t get past the stuck ads.** Love, love this word game when it's responsive. But it gets bogged down at times, probably due to the unwieldy ads that sometimes appear. they're suppose to show up after but sometimes they interrupt the game. Happens more often when I'm using data than wifi. And some locations, like airports, are the worst. Will try the airplane mode suggestion stated by other reviewer. Thought connection was required but maybe not. Like many others, I'd pay to avoid the ads. That said, if the ads didn't cause the game to malfunction and freeze sometimes --I've had to reload this 4 times in the last couple months -- they'd be okay to endure. One has actually been informative but it's local to Michigan, so it's not one many will see. And some ads I fear are for scam apps.
Good Start—Now Let Us Pay to Remove Ads
by dcostaroberts on 2019/09/15 00:12
This is a fun, well-designed—although maybe not from a graphic design standpoint—app that will please fans of classic Boggle. I have two main complaints, though, one major and one minor. 1. The ads in the app are very intrusive and make it annoying to play multiple games on a row. The developers should definitely add an option allowing users to pay for an ad-free experience; I’d pay up to $3.00, maybe more. 2. It’d be great to be able to change the size of the letter matrix. 5x5 is the only option currently available. And while having so many options can be fun, it’s also considerably easier in some ways than a 4x4 matrix (as Boggle uses). That said, gameplay is intuitive and comfortable, and I really appreciate the use of an expansive dictionary. I’ve used similar apps whose dictionaries don’t include a lot of standard English words (“yon,” and “morn,” e.g.).
My favorite game, but frustrating
by L-to-the-M-to-the-A on 2019/11/08 18:54
This is my favorite game. I could, and sometimes do, play all day long. It is a super fun challenge. I love the three different options for playing. HOWEVER, it is very buggy. It crashes often. It also freezes more than other apps. The ads are such that in order to watch the full add, you cannot see your score when you are done watching, or especially if you actually click on the ad to find out more. I try to close the add as soon as it will let me, and even then I can only see my scores for a split second. Sometimes I am actually interested in what they are selling, but I prefer to see my scores. I don’t think the advertisers would appreciate players trying to exit as soon as possible! Also, the trophies seem a bit inconsistent. Sometimes I get a silver trophy, or even a gold trophy, for a lower score than I get when “earning” a bronze trophy. If these things could be fixed, it would be the best app in the world.
Great (but buggy) game
by iPhone Game Maniac on 2018/06/27 22:23
I have played many of the Boggle-like games, and this one has some great features. However, it crashes - a lot (especially on iPhone X). The crashing seems mostly related to ads. When an ad pops over the screen, there’s about a 50% chance the app will crash when you close the ad. Normally not too big of a deal, but sometimes it will pop up an ad in the middle of a game, and god forbid you’re having a great round, because it’s going to crash. And better keep your fingers away from the banner ad at the bottom. If it opens a page, you will need to force kill the app to get it to go away - the Done button won’t remove it. And it occasionally crashes in the middle of a game, especially when you’re giving it a lot of fast input (which is kind of the point of the game). Make a commercial, ad free version and I’ll give you my $!
Hardcore porn ad interrupted game
by maria12345 on 2018/09/02 05:59
I have played this game for a couple years at least. As others have said, the ads have gotten increasingly more intrusive and often interrupts (& then crashes) the game. However the ads were always for shopping or other games and while super annoying, easily tolerated. Tonight though, scenes from a very hardcore porn started playing mid-game with a banner option to “go to video”. Nothing was blurred or left to the imagination. Just boom, p..... & v..... in my face. After about 30 seconds, the ad ended and the game resumed. Then, during the next game, it happened again. This time for a hardcore porn featuring a donut. (I’ll let you figure that one out!) Since my young nephew plays this game on my phone when he visits me, I’ll be deleting it. So sad because this game is my absolute favorite! I would definitely buy it for an ad free version if that was an option.
Would like to keep sound, not music
by BWKWJreader on 2019/02/08 14:27
I generally like the game. I’ve only had it for a day and I haven’t left the basic mode yet - so this review is limited. I like the sound of keys as the player “hits” the letters and the bell when a usable word is found, but after a few rounds, the game turns on some very annoying music. I see a way to turn off ALL sounds, but not just the music. So far the only way to deal with this issue that I can find is to restart the round. This would probably not be a problem for most players, though, so it can hardly be called a flaw to the game.
Ads untenable
by Solcat70 on 2019/07/30 04:54
This has been my favorite game for years except for the intrusive ads. I’ve found ways to cope with, and adjust for the ads but not now. They have gotten way worse, you can’t see your score directly after the game due to an ad popping up and obscuring the screen that takes several seconds to get rid of. So far the only way I’ve found to put a stop to it is to disconnect from any internet connection and then you can play fairly uninterrupted. Game developers on this game clearly don’t listen to calls for a paid and ad free version that would be gladly purchased by many. It’s too bad. The ads actually make me hate the very products they are shilling. Bet the advertisers never thought this method might actually backfire.
Loved it and then... some of the shine wore off!
by Labarge on 2019/02/21 02:03
I am a recent convert to this game, and have been playing it a lot. Everything went well until yesterday suddenly I began getting voice – over messages during my gameplay. There doesn’t appear to be any way to silence them, despite the fact that I have my game on mute. I play this often while I’m waiting for a client, and it is entirely inappropriate for this loud music in voiceover to begin unexpectedly. That is a real downer for me and I guess I’ll have to leave what had become my favorite app. Why on earth would the game’s inventors decide to put a noisy ad mid-game with no visible means of silencing it? I mean, I get that you have to get sponsors, but come on guys—that’s just wrong.

Used to love this game but.....
by GoodvGrief on 2019/12/07 22:13
The longgggg ads are driving everyone crazy! Whyyyyyyy! So aggravating!!!!! If you read all the reviews, the same complaint resonates. The ads are ridiculously long! We understand the need for ads but shorter would be better. Please fix this problem or most of us will move on to other games. There are thousands to choose from. Thank you SOOOOO much for fixing the longggg ad dilemma. We all appreciate it so much! Now, if only I could get more platinum trophies on the Classic Game
One major flaw
by Blues Junkie on 2019/01/28 23:13
This game is addictive - I really like it. The one thing that I find really frustrating is an ad that does not display until you are already playing a game, then it re-starts the game after closing the ad without saving your progress. If the game picked back up where you were before the ad displayed, it would be no big deal. Also, there are a few common words that it does not recognize. But once you play it enough, you begin to remember those words and can avoid them.
I love this game... when it works correctly
by B Girl in Baltimore on 2018/09/23 03:35
I am so sick of the ads and constant crashing. It didn’t used to be this way! Otherwise, I love the actual game. It also annoys me that the ads play noise even when I have the sound off. I also wish they had an easier way to see what your score is at the end. Once they total it up the stupid trophy appears abs you can’t see the total anymore. I wish it kept a list of your top scores and the scores of your last five games or something. Just give me the option to pay for an ad-free version with enhancements and I will be happy.
Wish trophy didn’t cover up score
by Mr_Hellcat on 2018/11/22 02:41
This game is addictive - have been playing it for years, and haven’t found a better find a word game. A few versions ago, they changed the graphics to when a trophy appears (silver , gold, or platinum) it obscures the score of the game you just finished. So if you blink, you miss how well you did. Keep waiting for them to fix this. Would be much better to be able to see the score.
Love the game, hate the ads
by ScottFromUtah on 2017/12/04 20:33
I used to think this was the perfect game for me, but then more and more ads started showing up, breaking the rhythm of the game, and generally being annoying. When are you going to come out with an ad-free version? I’ll gladly pay the money. One other annoyance. On my iPad, the statistic page cuts off the right side of the data on the number of platinum wins. I have won over 120 games at the platinum level, but the final digit doesn’t show up. Only the 12 appears. Please, I beg of you, fix these problems so that we can throughly enjoy your wonderful game!
Ads come at the worst possible time
by Jen if er on 2017/07/12 04:05
I really like the game, word games are awesome, but the ads pop up right in the middle of a game. Sometimes several times over and over and over. I've had games where the ads don't show up at all, but it's rare. When I'm on a roll and being timed, having an ad suddenly pop me out of the game causes me to lose my momentum and sometimes I'll lose my place. I have to hurry up and cancel the ad, go back to the main page and then press resume to continue my game. Wouldn't be so bad if that ads came in between games only.
See all the reviews yet do nothing about the ADS!!
by mglvj1108 on 2019/10/02 10:49
Played this game for years, now the ridiculous ads. The App Store sees all the negative reviews regarding the ads...some are 30 seconds and then wait another 10-15 seconds for the x cancel button to pop up, sometimes it doesn’t even do that! Question, why have a “write a review” if clearly do nothing about the complaint or bad reviews? Apparently it’s a waste of time. Perhaps if enough people deleting the app, then will you do something about it? That’s how WE the players win and stop playing corporate, psychological mind games..the ole bait and switch?
I’ve kept this one forever
by aclhannahfan on 2018/10/27 04:46
Love this game, I’ve had it on my phone for years and always go back to it. The only thing that bugs me is that if I don’t pay attention to my score or get distracted while it’s tallying then the trophy gets in the way and then I have no way of knowing what I got for sure. Lately it’s been glitching so the music of the ads won’t turn off, but I just mute my phone. Still a fun game.

Hate this Game
by Zilla62 on 2019/10/06 16:50
Love the game for when I am waiting somewhere and need something to do. MOST IRRITATING IS THE TEDIOUS AND USELESS COMMERCIALS, I HATEcTHEM and I have deleted the game yet again. I play it until the ads start coming (this current case they were wanting to be nbuying more games). This time the ads started after a few games, really quick. So I deleted it yet again. This is disappointing. All I want to do is play the game, not buy others. I would happily pay a modest amount for the game without all the nonsense, but NO ONE is listening so out it goes (again), I am not trying it again. What a disappointing
Ads are Killing this otherwise great game.
by D4rthcr4nk on 2019/11/09 05:16
I’ve had this game on my phone for roughly 10 years now- just about ready to remove it entirely due to the intolerably intrusive ads. <update> I did remove the game, later re-loaded it and the ads are suddenly much more tolerable. My history and stats are gone, but worth deleting and reinstalling if ads are killing the game for you too.
Love the game, hate the ads
by SeaHen17 on 2017/09/16 18:09
Hey developers, please consider selling an ad free version of this game. The game itself is great but after a couple of weeks of play I start getting ads saying I've got malware that I can't figure out how to close without clicking on a link. I've had to delete and reinstall several times, losing all high scores each time. I'm about 1 reinstall away from finding another game by a different developer if you can't/won't solve this!
Good game; needs updates
by DonMulder66 on 2019/03/22 14:11
There’s really nothing like this game - most word finds are much smaller in the number of letters available. But lately the ads pop up in the middle of games and closing them makes the entire game crash. Buggy! Also more options are needed for users - let users select amount of time - 2 minutes or 200 words (about 20 minutes) is not much of a choice. Increments of 5, 10, 15 minutes would be welcome.
Soooo addictive, buuuutttt.........
by CornerstoneMike on 2019/02/26 22:45
I am getting annoyed that the high value letters get buried in the perimeter of the grid (10 point Z in the corner surrounded by L, S and P????). I almost never see an X, and maybe ONCE, a Q. But I’m sure I wouldn’t score any points with them anyway,the way they get buried. How about moving them into the main field and start giving us a chance to get some serious points with some serious words? Amazingly, ergonomically, marginalization. How about words like that?
Play it often
by G'ma Rosey on 2017/12/11 21:28
I like this game but I have one problem. It seems to me the scoring is irregular. Maybe it's just me, but if I have some seven letter words and 34 words total and at least one word that is 2,3, 4, 5, and six letters and no mistakes, I expect a silver. But I don't always get it. Also, it seems like sometimes I get more time to play. Is that true, or is it me?
Too many ads, no fun to play now
by Ex chic on 2017/07/25 02:53
I used to love this game and started getting back into it. Too many ads now, it gets to the point where it feels like every 5 seconds I have to get out of the ad and back to the game. Sometimes when I get out of the ad, it takes me out of the game completely and I lose the progress and have to start over. Too frustrating, which is too bad because I really like the game.
Addictive but the “bugs” make it so annoying
by 4walky4 on 2019/05/10 03:40
When it worked smoothly,I used to really enjoy playing. But recently it has been freezing up, ads ad nauseum, intrusive voice-overs are almost as bad as all the robot calls on phone! I hope the malfunctions get cleaned up because it’s a stimulating, quick diversion when it works well.
Wish it worked
by minisusan on 2018/12/28 21:35
I have to delete and reload often because of the ads. Because of the ads the thing distracts, freezes and frustrates. It would be my most favorite game otherwise. Just note that I would pay money for a version that didn’t have the ads. I have an ad blocker, even. But it still randomly lets the ads in, and if it gets turned off accidentally the app becomes a mess.
Ads are interrupting game
by atxcats on 2017/07/23 23:33
Does anyone who works on this game test new ad campaigns before implementing them? I would give this game a 5, except for the times they change their ad menu and it screws up the game. The latest ones are popups in the middle of game play from WalMart and another one telling me to upgrade my IOS. No thank you, I'm not going to introduce malware by clicking on a random link in the middle of a game! If you'd offer an adfree version for a reasonable cost, I'd take it, because when this game is not being interrupted by ads, it's actually a lot of fun!
Totally addictive. BUT why the change?
by Rainbow722 on 2019/07/27 05:26
Was really addicted to this game but suddenly the ads pop up before I can watch the progress bar to see if I’ve gotten closer to the next cup! Also, it is annoying when the sound from an ad plays while you are playing a round and there is not an ad on screen!
I used to enjoy it...

Great but needs attention
by Bluedogz on 2017/10/30 12:31
I totally get the point of freemium games, and don’t have any problem with ad supported apps. However, interrupting in the midst of gameplay for an ad is so intrusive as to make the game almost unplayable. I would even be willing to pay a reasonable amount for an ad free version of this game, but there doesn’t appear to be one. Either make an ad free version, or find a way to channel the ads better.
Great word game
by Camisado. on 2017/08/10 11:16
I really enjoy playing this game, however, I think there should be a new update for bug fixes. My game lags a lot while swiping letters and causes me to lose time and make errors. The game also sometimes crashes unexpectedly. Other than that, this game keeps me entertained.
Well...
by DanlPW on 2019/03/21 04:44
I’ve been playing this game for about 9 months and it’s a great little brain game but lately it keeps getting stuck and I can’t continue finding words. None of the other games I play are experiencing this so it’s not my device, I like this game but if it doesn’t fix itself I’m going to have to delete it. I’d really miss it but it’s just too frustrating. If it gets resolved I’d give it more stars.
Could be the best but it’s not
by artipat on 2018/05/22 00:59
I used to love this game till I made the mistake of downloading their “improvements “. What a farce that was - it was just to fit ads in after each 2 minute game. I could live with that, though I would have preferred to pay for the game with no ads. The final blow, however was when they ruined my rhythm- and my score by throwing in ads in the middle of a timed game! I quit then. I’ve tried to go back a few more times and nothing has changed. Too bad, it could have been the best game out there😭
A complete disaster!
by GinaZ73 on 2017/09/08 11:34
First I must say I used to love this game. I hadn't played for awhile and decided to last night. There's an awful ad about a phony virus that pops up several times mid-game! I get the fact that ads are necessary, I would have even paid for an ad-free version of this game! But to have ads pop up while swiping during the game is just unacceptable IMO. This game had a spot on my phone for years but it has to go now. I'll consider it again if you keep the ads to the beginning or end of a game.
Too many pop ups, crashes all the time
by Nadia C29 on 2017/10/26 07:29
Would be a great game if it didn't pop up an ad every other word (which eats into your time btw) and tons of crashes. In two minutes I had closed around 40 ads. That's absolutely ridiculous! I wrote down each ad and will purposefully avoid them because of this crap stain of an app. No more money or clicks for your sub par app. I uninstalled this game less than 20 minutes after installing it. I would rate it less than 1 star if I could.
Ads
by jonathomp on 2019/08/20 13:18
The game is fun but finding words is almost too easy. Unlike some other word search games, you will never run out of words before the time runs out, so you spend your whole time looking for the longest words possible. Also, a full screen ad comes up at the end of each game and by the time you are able to close it, your score screen has already finished. I get frustrated every time.
The most frustrating app ever!
by LoveToKnit on 2018/07/25 14:10
Really fun Game. The ads and the problems with them are maddening! If you accidentally touch on the ad bar on the bottom of the page the entire game freezes up in the ad. You can’t get out of the page and have to delete the entire app and reinstalled. This is happened over the last several months so it’s not a one-time glitch. I’ve decided to permanently delete it because I’ve just had it with this issue never getting resolved.
Ads have taken over the game
by Chumburrito on 2017/09/20 03:43
I used to love this game but ever since the most recent update, I am getting constant ads during the game, some with distracting sound in background and others blocking the game entirely. Sometimes the ad just ends the game and I can't get back to it. And, most annoying of all, I frequently get an ad in all caps telling me I have a virus that's going to kill my phone. Two stars are only because the game itself can be good.
Word scramble
by hmekh on 2019/09/14 11:52
Word Scramble has been my favorite game for years - until lately. Since an ad comes up after every game, and is usually so long, I often can’t see the scoring section. Part of the fun was watching that little bar move along its merry way, but I can’t see it anymore. And why must there be an ad after EVERY DOGGONE GAME? WHY? Consequently, I don’t play as much anymore. The joy is gone.
Too much obtrusive advertising & No option to purchase
by marydellcar on 2019/04/25 18:17
I would have paid to purchase this simple app but I have not been given the chance. The developer prefers to use constantly interrupting the game with pop-up ads which include opening advertising in your browser. Don’t waste your time. The game is ok & that’s why I gave it a 3 but the constant ads are maddening.

Love the game, but recently a false virus warning appears every time it is installed. This screen comes up several times a game along with the other adds. It refers the phone owner to a site to purchase anti-virus software which according to information obtained is completely fake. When Scramble is removed, no virus screen is seen on any other app. Scramble reinstalled, the virus screen appears again but only when playing this game. The company needs to check this out!!
Nice...but
by VanWool on 2018/08/08 03:27
It crashes now and then, usually at the start of a new game, maybe ten seconds in, it’ll go to an ad, then crash. Worse is when you’ve been in a game for a while and an ad appears AND IT WONT CLOSE and go back to the game. What would be a nice feature would be to have the opportunity to see all the possible words at the end of a game.
App freezes
by Lucky just on 2018/06/04 05:28
I LOVE this game, but I can have the same freeze problem that other reviewers have stated! I have cancelled the app and started all over, losing all my data, but nothing helps. The “freeze” has forced me to Just about give up. What’s really sad is that I hate the ads that freeze and, as a result, will never ever purchase any products from them.
Ruined
by Michelle*GB on 2017/09/26 21:10
This has been my favorite game for the longest time but it’s been ruined by the silly Mitsubishi ads that come on during a game and take up the lower corner of the game and block letters. I don’t play as often now and will likely give up on this game. I’d happily pay for an ad free version like many other fans. Please fix this advertising problem. Soon.
Annoying Ads
by Bobbyrunner on 2019/09/24 04:09
This has been my favorite game. I love playing this game or I used to love it. However, you have added these very annoying ads that are meaningless to me and With them in place, I am unable to view my score. This is very annoying and meaningless to me. If you need to advertise these other applications, then play them before the game starts, so please remove them. I personally will delete this game, if these annoying ads continue. Thanks Bobby
Pop up ad makes play impossible
by ginaarlie on 2017/10/11 14:20
Would be a great game... except, most of the time, pop ups cover the screen sometimes as frequently as every few seconds. Mid-word, I get a pop up, which cuts off my word, making it an error. Have to play the game with my left thumb hovering over where the X pops up to exit the ad. To boot, the ads show nothing! Pointless. Frustrating. I’m on a new iPhone with software and the app up-to-date. This is unusable.
Don’t buy: Ads are very annoying and take over the game
by Counting Blue Whales on 2019/07/27 00:44
I used to love playing, put it aside for a long time and came back to it. But now the ads come after the end of every game and take over the whole screen so you can’t see your score progress or what happened and are very annoying to clear. I complained to the support and they said they don’t support this game. Don’t buy!!!! I’d pay for ad free version but no option offered.

Ads cut off game
by my570 on 2019/12/12 22:15
I used to love this game, but the last time I returned to it I learned that advertisements cut off the scoring at the game end. I really like to see my scores tabulate to the final number, but now I’m stuck looking at an ad, waiting for the X to become visible. Please get rid of the ad at the very end!!!
Why the ads before the score?
by TobyZ1234 on 2019/12/08 12:52
Now that you put the ads before the score you sometimes don’t get to see the score just the trophy.
Used to love this game but.....
by GoodvGrief on 2019/12/07 22:13
The longgggg ads are driving everyone crazy! Whyyyyyyy! So aggravating!!!!! If you read all the reviews, the same complaint resonates. The ads are ridiculously long! We understand the need for ads but shorter would be better. Please fix this problem or most of us will move on to other games. There are thousands to choose from. Thank you SOOOOO much for fixing the longggg ad dilemma. We all appreciate it so much! Now, if only I could get more platinum trophies on the Classic Game
Ads obscure stats
by iHiJump on 2019/11/23 22:20
Cant see postgame stats because of ads. Uninstalling.
Kill the ads
by 0904John on 2019/11/17 04:44
It is too much. Make it a few bucks but kill the freaking ads
Ad Placement Ruins The Game
by daVinci girl - the real one on 2019/11/17 04:41
I loved the game until the ads started popping up as soon as the game finished. I used to enjoy watching the scoring add up. Now I can’t see anything. Then, the final score shows. If ads are necessary, my suggestion is place them at the beginning of the game.
Ads
by htperkins417 on 2019/11/14 03:33
Ads mess with the feedback after a round. I’d pay to get rid of them, just saying. If anything have them pop up at a different time so I can see my stats.
App crashes getting worse
by MyogiMeetsTheKid on 2019/11/13 17:25
The application is addictive and fun. Too bad the medal shown at end covers the final score. But horribly, the app crashes regularly. Hard to make progress when the app closes out 30% of the time. With nothing in background, it still crashes. Thought it might be related to active advertisements at bottom but might be something more systemic in the apps code.
Ads are Killing this otherwise great game.
by D4rthcr4nk on 2019/11/09 05:16
I’ve had this game on my phone for roughly 10 years now- just about ready to remove it entirely due to the intolerably intrusive ads. <update> I did remove the game, later re-loaded it and the ads are suddenly much more tolerable. My history and stats are gone, but worth deleting and reinstalling if ads are killing the game for you too.
My favorite game, but frustrating
by L-to-the-M-to-the-A on 2019/11/08 18:54
This is my favorite game. I could, and sometimes do, play all day long. It is a super fun challenge. I love the three different options for playing. HOWEVER, it is very buggy. It crashes often. It also freezes more than other apps. The ads are such that in order to watch the full add, you cannot see your score when you are done watching, or especially if you actually click on the ad to find out more. I try to close the add as soon as it will let me, and even then I can only see my scores for a split second. Sometimes I am actually interested in what they are selling, but I prefer to see my scores. I don’t think the advertisers would appreciate players trying to exit as soon as possible! Also, the trophies seem a bit inconsistent. Sometimes I get a silver trophy, or even a gold trophy, for a lower score than I get when “earning” a bronze trophy. If these things could be fixed, it would be the best app in the world.
Ugh - ads ruin everything
by judirow on 2019/11/05 12:38
I used to love this game. But now you have to wait through a 30 second ad before you see your score at the end. Then you can’t see the details of your score. Grrrr. Deleting!
Ads interrupt the game and cause lost time
by MindfulMess on 2019/11/04 04:12
I love word scramble, but now ads pop up in the middle of my timed game play. It ruins my play. Please correct this.
Unplayable
by Shirley 1951 on 2019/11/04 03:25
Used to love this game. Until the ads came on in the middle of a timed game!
My favorite game but keeps crashing
by Run_DMC1991 on 2019/10/29 19:35
This is my absolute favorite app on my phone and would get 5 stars if it didn’t crash every 2 seconds. I can maybe finish 1 out of 20 games, which is hella annoying.
The ads are out of control!
by BDOW on 2019/10/11 01:04
The ads have taken over the game. You can’t even see your score because of the pop up ads
Hate this Game
by Zilla62 on 2019/10/06 16:50
Love the game for when I am waiting somewhere and need something to do. MOST IRRITATING IS THE TEDIOUS AND USELESS COMMERCIALS, I HATEcTHEM and I have deleted the game yet again. I play it until the ads start coming (this current case they were wanting to be nbuying more games). This time the ads started after a few games, really quick. So I deleted it yet again. This is disappointing. All I want to do is play the game, not buy others. I would happily pay a modest amount for the game without all the nonsense, but NO ONE is listening so out it goes (again), I am not trying it again. What a disappointing
Crashes Frequently
by Em_305 on 2019/10/04 20:53
My favourite game is the marathon, but it’s really annoying when I need to restart several times with different boards because the games suddenly crash.
Disappointed
by Gteach4 on 2019/10/04 18:45
I used to really like this game. Now it has ads just when your score for the game is coming up so you don’t get to see it. I’d rather it start with an ad.
Game Goes Away
by cohooper on 2019/10/04 14:33
When playing game, it automatically turns off and adds break it up. It shows that the app has been having a number of issues! Need to get it back to the way it was! I have deleted it!
I use to love this game.
by equusrider50 on 2019/10/03 16:25
Other game offers keep popping up and loudly hijacking my game before I even get my score. I use to love this game. EVERY game gets hijacked and I can’t can’t get out of the loop unless I dump the game and start over I won’t be back until I can pay for an offer free, ad free, interruption free game.
See all the reviews yet do nothing about the ADS!!
by mglvj1108 on 2019/10/02 10:49
Played this game for years, now the ridiculous ads. The App Store sees all the negative reviews regarding the ads...some are 30 seconds and then wait another 10-15 seconds for the x cancel button to pop up, sometimes it doesn’t even do that! Question, why have a “write a review” if clearly do nothing about the complaint or bad reviews? Apparently it’s a waste of time. Perhaps if enough people deleting the app, then will you do something about it? That’s how WE the players win and stop playing corporate, psychological mind games..the ole bait and switch?
It Was A Favorite
by CM005023 on 2019/09/28 01:19
The Ads after the game - before you see the score kill the fun of the game. I’m tired of it. Time to delete this and give up. It’s not fun - nor worth it any more.
Ads
by KekabaToo on 2019/09/25 13:11
Sometime a while back the ads frequently started playing DURING scoring… can’t see the bar, the time, the score... since at the completion of the scoring the trophy pops up and covers it all. Those ads are totally annoying!

TOO. MANY. ADS.
by zibjule on 2019/09/23 14:51
LOVE the game. BUT — past year there are waaaay too many LONG ads (often back-to-back 20-second ads). And they keep adding more! Absolutely frustrating and not worth it anymore. I would happily pay for ad-free. Until then, I’ll find another word game . (09/2019)
More Ads than games
by CC30144 on 2019/09/21 21:36
This game used to be fun but I hadn’t played it in a while and now the pop up ads are the WORST I have ever seen with any app. I would rather buy a paid version of this game and have NO Ads but that doesn’t appear to be an option!
Ads kill this game
by Big Tall Chris on 2019/09/21 02:00
This is a very good word search game, but the ads kill the experience. I can’t even pay to remove them. And I wonder what data they’re sharing.
Annoying ads
by New Yorker Lady on 2019/09/20 13:04
Have enjoyed this game for a long time but play it less now because the ads immediately pop up at the end and you can not watch the score bar. That was half the fun! Why not an ad free version that can be purchased?
Scramble
by PT 43 on 2019/09/17 15:52
Each update weakens the app. Ads interfere with observing the scoring. It becomes more complicated to use and very unfriendly to users. It used to be one of my favorites
Please fix the crashes or create ad free!
by OrigJennyline on 2019/09/17 12:26
This is such a great game - and like others I experience frequent crashing when I’m having killer games. I would totally pay for an ad-free version since it seams as though that’s what is causing it.
Your ads don’t allow me to see what I scored
by caligirl7398! on 2019/09/15 09:51
Game is ok, and I don’t mind ads but when they are placed where I can’t see what I scored, I have a problem. As soon as I finish a game the ad comes on while my score is being tallied. It didn’t do this before the update. So I’m deleting it. Fix it and I’ll come back.
Good Start—Now Let Us Pay to Remove Ads
by dcostaroberts on 2019/09/15 00:12
This is a fun, well-designed—although maybe not from a graphic design standpoint—app that will please fans of classic Boggle. I have two main complaints, though, one major and one minor. 1. The ads in the app are very intrusive and make it annoying to play multiple games on a row. The developers should definitely add an option allowing users to pay for an ad-free experience; I’d pay up to $3.00, maybe more. 2. It’d be great to be able to change the size of the letter matrix. 5x5 is the only option currently available. And while having so many options can be fun, it’s also considerably easier in some ways than a 4x4 matrix (as Boggle uses). That said, gameplay is intuitive and comfortable, and I really appreciate the use of an expansive dictionary. I’ve used similar apps whose dictionaries don’t include a lot of standard English words (“yon,” and “morn,” e.g.).

I just hate the pop up ads. I would be willing to pay to have them removed but it doesn’t look like there is a paid version.
App Crashes
by Buddy134566 on 2019/09/05 14:06
I freakin’ love this game, but if I find words too quickly, the app crashes every time. Can you all fix this issue, so I can continue to raise my high scores? MT..!
Ruined By Ads
by Buffalo Ed on 2019/08/31 12:36
This is a fun and challenging game that is now being ruined by pop up ads at the end of the game. You can no longer see your time score. The ad pops at conclusion and when you finally get out of the ad your time score for the just completed game is gone. Just maddening and ruining the Scramble game experience.
Good game , intrusive ads
by D.D.M.T on 2019/08/30 21:21
This is a really fun game to play, but the ads cover up all the stats at the end of the game so you can’t see how you did! I understand the need for ads, but put them in another time slot so they don’t interfere with the game!
Was fun but not anymore
by Fun fun fun fun! Best awesome on 2019/08/30 16:52
This was a fun game I played a lot. But recently the ads pop up as soon as the game ends and scoring begins. You cannot see the results of your game due to the ads. Sorry, but deleting to find another game
Score is blocked by ads!
by howcanallthenicknamesbeta on 2019/08/29 23:49
Too bad the score is blocked by advertisements. It’s not fun to play a good game and not even know the score. What happens is ads pop up as soon as the game ends- which is also when the score is added up. By the time the ads are over, the score is no longer visible. After years of playing, I deleted the app and looking for another.
It’s the ads
by Jokelly22 on 2019/08/29 00:30
Too intrusive. Paid version available? I give up. Removing from my phone.
Ads block score
by MamaLaine on 2019/08/28 06:12
Played for years. Now worthless unless you don’t care about score. The second time is up ad comes on and often runs 10-20 seconds and goes back and might show trophy but score is blocked. I will check every now and then in the hopes that changed. I don’t like ads and length-but would accept that if it would just stop game so you could get stats.
Deleted Immediately
by RCL2 on 2019/08/28 00:56
I deleted immediately at seeing no way to eliminate ads. I rather pay a little than be bothered.
Used to Be a Good Game, Now Only Works in Airplane Mode
by sconnell2 on 2019/08/27 14:16
Been playing Scramble for awhile and have enjoyed the game. Unfortunately, I've always been limited to when I could play because after every other round or so, a loud advertisement started even though I have Sound turned off in preferences. I understand the need for advertising but the sound problem has gotten out of hand. As of today the loud ads start immediately at the end of every game played even before the score comes up. I'd pay a reasonable price for a non-ad version (NOT a subscription!!) or don't mind advertising that does not make noise or cut off the game. As it stands, I will need to delete Scramble if this is not fixed soon. Advertising is fine - uninvited audio and interrupting game play with ads definitely not. Looking forward to a fix soon. Will change to 4-5 stars when it works again. UPDATE: Dropped to 1 star because in addition to the problems cited, after nearly a week, they've still not responded to an email to their support. Am starting to wonder if it's some kind of spam scam. We all make mistakes, but if they're not even willing to send out a form response saying that they're working on a fix, it seems like a lost cause. UPDATE2: Raised to 3 stars because I figured out a workaround to the serious bug that they seem to have no interest in fixing or responding to. Found out accidentally while traveling: in airplane mode, the game works just fine with no interruptions or unwanted audio, cutting out the intrusive advertising altogether! This is probably not what they or their advertisers were expecting, but if they don't want to fix the game this is inconvenient but functional.
Only 2 Stars
by mendemj on 2019/08/24 23:06
Ive loved this game for years but now that the ads are ending my time im not pleased. I will be deleting this app
Ads
by fineory on 2019/08/24 06:27
Love this game but all of a sudden there’s so many ads. It’s relentless and after every game. It’s awful! Make them stop!!!!!!
Ads
by Fris_K on 2019/08/23 11:09
Severely dislike how the ads now pop-up when getting the score now. It is to the point of deleting the game from my phone. It’s too bad because the game itself is pretty good.
Too many ads, can’t even see score!
by l&a&a on 2019/08/22 10:48
Why even play if the ads cover over the score!?
What happened!
by Karen Mack on 2019/08/21 01:36
The game continues to freeze up. Reinstalled several times. Used to be my favorite game. No more. So sad.
Ads
by jonathomp on 2019/08/20 13:18
The game is fun but finding words is almost too easy. Unlike some other word search games, you will never run out of words before the time runs out, so you spend your whole time looking for the longest words possible. Also, a full screen ad comes up at the end of each game and by the time you are able to close it, your score screen has already finished. I get frustrated every time.
What Are You Doing
by warmer-part-of-winter on 2019/08/15 23:52
This used to be my favourite go to game then it started crashing crashing and crashing. Now there is no time for it to crash because there is a long commercial after EVERY GAME!! Why don’t you just let us pay you more money and then get out of way....
Can’t play anymore
by Cheryl Derby on 2019/08/14 12:02
Have been playing this game for years and now I’ll have to find a new one. The ads are ridiculous- pop up as soon as game is over and can’t even see score most of the time. Can’t play this anymore- it’s too annoying!
Updated
by hornhopper on 2019/08/13 20:35
Updated recently but one problem fixed for another. Now the ads show up before the score is counted and depending on how long the ad is you may not even see the score. Poor. Needs another update.
Word Scramble ads are annoying
by Archie 503 on 2019/08/10 14:49
I’ve not played this game much recently but after starting again the last couple of days, will probably delete it. The ads after EVERY game are loud, intrusive and annoying.
This Used to Be One of My Favorite Games
by LisaSimpsonOH on 2019/08/10 02:31
Now the ads cover the score calculation, making it utterly useless. I might delete if this isn’t fixed soon.
What did you do?!
by Buh, bye on 2019/08/09 05:48
By making it 5 x 5 you dumbed it down! It’s not challenging anymore ....as in not fun.
Stat bars: please.
by Flight Lady on 2019/08/07 17:51
Great game until the ad starts BEFORE you get to see how you did. BLECH!! FIX THIS. I AM DELETING THIS APPP!! Fix it so we can SEE the scoring bars !!!!
Ads interrrupt
by de-chatify on 2019/08/07 01:53
Like everyone else is writing lately, I can’t stand the latest update because the ads come up the second that your game ends so that you can’t even see your score first. And because of the way the game shows you your trophy after the score shows, you may NEVER be able to make out how you did. Fun game. Horrible update.
Annoying advertising - you have ruined this game
by CharCruiser on 2019/08/06 17:06
A new update now prompts an advertisement pop up when you finish each game, BEFORE you get your score... Totally disrupts the flow of the game! I play much less often and I don’t bother waiting for my score. After one game, I close it, and play something else.
Oboe
by VPMD on 2019/08/06 13:40
Good app ruined by excessive ads. Will not even show score on IPhone before pop up ad. An ad free version would be worth a modest price.
Ads Too Obtrusive!!!
by Oldesquire on 2019/08/06 04:01
Have played this game and enjoyed it for years until recently when the ads became much more obtrusive. Now an ad comes up after completing a game. There’s no way to close the ad, but even worse, the ad completely uses up the time that the game takes to tally my score, so I never get to learn how well I did! Please change this, sooner rather than later!
Can’t see score because of ads
by Brook & Christy Rolka on 2019/08/05 01:58
They’ve added ads after game ends but while your score is calculating, so you no longer know how you did because the ad runs the whole time and blocks you from seeing it. 1 Star until they move the ads back to after the score is fully calculated.
Word scramble
by jcb405 on 2019/08/04 21:25
I use to love the game. Now that the ads are before scoring I no level ne’er enjoy and will no longer play
What happened with the adds?
by bdseanp1 on 2019/08/04 17:28
I loved this game and was fine with a giant ad if I didn’t get a trophy. Now, now no matter what ads are twice as long and I don’t see my point tally. Boo I’ll pay for that to go away.
Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!
by avonne55 on 2019/08/04 08:05
It was bad enough when the game kept crashing. Now you can’t see your scores because of the ads that pop up immediately after reaching the time limit. I’ve been playing this for years but will now look for a different word game.
Last update ruined this game
by Sexymeerkat1 on 2019/08/03 22:08
I really enjoyed this game for a while. But now when your time is up a pop up ad hides he screen. So you don’t get to watch your score build up, and if it’s a long ad you don’t see your score or even what trophy you won.
Too many adds
by catterinia on 2019/08/03 03:26
I can’t even see my score at the end because adds interfere. Very frustrating!
Ads in latest update Impact results
by Gmcg62 on 2019/08/03 00:57
So the last update injects the ads just after you finish playing. Which means you can miss seeing your score. Very disappointing. I understand the need for ads. But now you’ve really impacted the results of the game. Tip for those that still want to play - go to airplane mode. That way the ads are briefer so you have a chance of seeing your score.
Best word game ever
by Cdcargle on 2019/08/02 17:10
I give it a 3 because the game crashes non-stop. I’ve deleted this game off my iPad and iPhone about six times and always wind up reinstalling because I love this game so much. I would pay for it!!!!!!!!! Keep in mind that I’ve never paid for a game before.
Ads are becoming more intrusive
by unhappycamper#1945 on 2019/08/02 00:23
I really enjoy this game but lately the adds are more frequent and louder. I would be happy to pay for an ad free version but for now I have to delete the game.
Loud Annoying and intrusive ads
by cupcake 54 on 2019/08/01 20:56
I’ve had this game for years and now the ads are loud, pop up before I know the game is over and hard to stop. The game us good fun, tho many words are not recognized and scoring is weird.... I think I’m going to stop playing after reading this review! Lol
Ads are blocking score
by J W Zinger on 2019/07/31 14:22
I have enjoy this game for a long time, at least 4-5 years. I’ve managed to tolerate the ads because I enjoyed the format of the game. But just recently the ads pop up immediately following game, during the scoring calculation, and unfortunately it doesn’t allow me to disconnect the ad for several seconds. Therefore, I miss seeing my final score. It certainly adds to the annoyance and will probably delete the app now.
Too many ads
by xxkkkxxc on 2019/07/30 18:38
The ads pop up before you can see your score. When the answer finished the score is gone.
Ads untenable
by Solcat70 on 2019/07/30 04:54
This has been my favorite game for years except for the intrusive ads. I’ve found ways to cope with, and adjust for the ads but not now. They have gotten way worse, you can’t see your score directly after the game due to an ad popping up and obscuring the screen that takes several seconds to get rid of. So far the only way I’ve found to put a stop to it is to disconnect from any internet connection and then you can play fairly uninterrupted. Game developers on this game clearly don’t listen to calls for a paid and ad free version that would be gladly purchased by many. It’s too bad. The ads actually make me hate the very products they are shilling. Bet the advertisers never thought this method might actually backfire.
Stops working
by Bluefan1996 on 2019/07/30 02:17
Randomly stops working in the middle of game. Fun but very annoying to be kicked out frequently. Disappointing. The frequency of crashing is unbelievable Update: the new ad format is terrible. Can’t see your score..ad pops up immediately and very hard to delete. I played everyday, not anymore until they fix this issue
They should rename it “Crashes and Ads”
by I’ve deleted it on 2019/07/29 14:32
Played this game for years. It crashes more every time I use it. I’ve asked for help several times with no response. Now the ads pop up over the screen the second the game ends (if it doesn’t crash first) and I can’t even see the scores. If you don’t care enough to fix it or even respond to your users then it’s time to delete.
Congrats
by Mellow1964 on 2019/07/29 01:57
Congrats on finding a new way to make me hate advertisers. I understand the need to make money and would possibly buy products from your advertisers if they were not inserted in such an obnoxious way! You finish a game and cannot even see your score and get a high volume advertisement. Why not force us to watch before playing? I will never if at all possible purchase any item advertised on your game!
Ads
by Cherylfalke on 2019/07/28 20:55
I loved this game when I first started playing it, but now there are so many ads that it’s not enjoyable. Is there a paid version that allows the user to not see ads?
Not Cool!
by knightlady02 on 2019/07/28 18:42
Game just started pattern of placing ads right before time runs out on game so you can’t finish final run, at least with blitz mode - not cool.
Enough of the ads already!
by rblue1950 on 2019/07/28 07:07
Until yesterday this was my favorite game. I would even put up with the occasional crash. But now with the dual ads the instant my two minutes are up, I can no longer see how my score develops. I’m done with it! Sorry, but if I no longer play the game, your ads are a costly waste.
No no no!
by Marciemay on 2019/07/27 22:30
I don’t want to play the games that you’re offering me while I’m waiting to see my results of the game I just played. Instead of seeing how I did and what I did, via the bar display, you’re showing me games that I’m not interested in - you have ruined this game.
Totally addictive. BUT why the change?
by Rainbow722 on 2019/07/27 05:26
Was really addicted to this game but suddenly the ads pop up before I can watch the progress bar to see if I’ve gotten closer to the next cup! Also, it is annoying when the sound from an ad plays while you are playing a round and there is not an ad on screen!
Love the game but.....
by B2cruise on 2019/07/27 04:03
This game is loads of fun and challenging but the ads keep interrupting the game and my scores suffer. Very frustrating. I would pay to not have any ads. Think it’s time to find new games. I’d give this a 5 star rating without the ads
Don’t buy: Ads are very annoying and take over the game
by Counting Blue Whales on 2019/07/27 00:44
I used to love playing, put it aside for a long time and came back to it. But now the ads come after the end of every game and take over the whole screen so you can’t see your score progress or what happened and are very annoying to clear. I complained to the support and they said they don’t support this game. Don’t buy!!!! I’d pay for ad free version but no option offered.
I used to enjoy it...
by Snailman22030 on 2019/07/26 16:07
24 Aug 2017 - I gave it some time and downloaded it again but the GAME IS STILL INTERRUPTED BY ADS. I WILL NOT CLICK THE ADS. I CLOSE SE THE GAME INSTEAD AND WILL DELETE THIS GAME IF YOU CONTINUE THAT S ANNOYING PRACTICE. --- What can I say? It's actually a brilliant game but at the risk of sounding like a broken record among all the others here... The adds are insanely annoying, cannot be shut off and some of them are even "threatening" saying that my device is infected and I must click here etc. What a load! Also... The score bars were done away with on the last update. It can be played in Airplane Mode but I can't afford to leave my phone turned off while I play a silly game. I'm forced to delete this game. Update: Things improves but now I’ve stopped playing again since the most recent update. The ads interrupt the scoring. That needs to be fixed before I’ll play again.
Hey...
by Nutsin33037 on 2019/07/26 14:34
What’s with all the “instant ads,” before you see your scores add up? That’s super annoying!!
Really Dislike the noisy ads
by 64152 on 2019/07/25 17:56
I enjoy playing this game, but I really dislike the noisy ads. I play the game when I have a few quiet minutes - between meetings or sitting in a public space waiting for someone - places where I have no desire to call attention to myself. When my phone starts blaring loudly it’s annoying and embarrassing. I don’t know why anyone thinks that embarrassing me in public would make me want to buy something. Why don’t you offer an ad-free version of the game?
Needs to be updated
by Snap Creative on 2019/07/18 23:29
It won’t open (iPad). I did a soft reset and it still will not open. I used to play daily
What the heck?!?
by PearlHazel on 2019/07/15 20:01
This is my favorite game ever and I play it daily. However, it crashes constantly now. What’s up with that?! Fix it please or there’s no point playing it. Who needs the frustration.
Word scramble
by woodlily3 on 2019/07/04 17:03
Ads freeze up the game forcing a total shutdown and reboot or they disrupt a game. I like this game a lot and would pay for it if ads were removed. The way they work is wrong.
Crashes Constantly
by tiredofadcrashes on 2019/07/04 14:15
In the middle of games an ad will pop up, and as if that’s not bad enough, when I try to leave the ad the app crashes and I lose the game I was playing. This is happening more and more frequently without rhyme or reason as to when (except it seems to happen more when I’m playing well).
Crashes from Ads
by Mcvaughn89 on 2019/06/28 22:27
Love playing this game but it’s constantly having a pop up ad in the middle of my game that crashes the app so I lose my game. Really frustrating.
Advertising makes game unplayable
by FastPhil100 on 2019/06/18 23:48
I used to love this game, but now advertising runs WHILE I'm playing the game and that audio makes it very distracting. Plus, when those ads run, the game lags, which lowers scoring. Until they stop ruining the player's experience by intrusive advertising, I'd avoid playing this one.
Help!
by KnewKneeChris on 2019/06/10 11:08
I love this game but now it just freezes. Any solutions?
Great game but........
by Daughterofapilot on 2019/06/08 07:24
I really like this game and I would give it 4 stars if it didn’t have these issues and I hope to see them fixed soon. I play it every day and I really enjoy it but there are a few issues, every now and then the app will crash and I have to start the game over which isn’t that big of a deal but the app shouldn’t be crashing so much. The other issue is the ads and the pop ups. It would be nice to be able to get rid of them. It’s annoying and distracting to see ads when I am trying to play the game. These are the only issues I’ve experienced and while they are annoying they won’t stop me from playing.
Fun
by SEMO Bootheel on 2019/06/04 00:31
Fun game to play, but it has issues on crashing need to fix the bugs.
Too much noise
by pacekeeper on 2019/05/24 02:34
Liked game until while playing crazy ads and crazy music goes on and interferes with play. Deleted but try once more but if noise continues will delete permanently.
Crashing...
by Boyydz69 on 2019/05/14 06:20
Repeatedly crashing. Had to reinstall and lost my 20000-game data file from 4 years’ play! Great game, but it has to work.
Crashes
by Bobjr56 on 2019/05/13 18:56
Began crashing every so often weeks ago. Now crashing almost every game played. I uninstalled an reinstalled it. The problem continued. I uninstalled the game.
YAY!!!
by MarieGoble on 2017/04/28 12:39
Suddenly the stat bars are back this AM! Yay, yay, YAY!!!! Thank you! Now if you could make the ads just a little less intrusive (even less frequent) this game would be back to just about PERFECT! THANK YOU for fixing the status bars! Your rating just went up a star.👍 I have played and loved this game for several years now, but there have been changes recently that make it hard to love the game anymore. The ads...SO ANNOYING AND INTRUSIVE! They suddenly pop in during the middle of play often blocking the letters in the lower right hand corner of the game board and they seriously mess with one's focus. One of the reasons I used to love this game is that it was ad-free. Do you (and the advertisers) really think I'm going to leave my current puzzle and go watch the ads or is the hope that people will accidentally tap on the ad instead of letters and be forced to exit to return to the game? A real turn-off! WHO thought it was a brilliant idea to get rid of the score bars that show how you did in a game (the bars that used to fill up during scoring)? That wasn't "broken", so why mess with that??? PLEASE put the progress bars back to the way they used to be! The genius who changed the scoring bars was very wrong. Sadly, because of recent changes I find myself enjoying the game less and less and looking for other challenging word games. These "improvements" (NOT!) need to be fixed ASAP. I'm ready to go elsewhere. ):
Fave game, when it works right
by trailnut on 2017/12/25 22:31
**Update. Still love this game and it worked pretty well for a while. Now we’re back to it crashing with ads. It freezes such that it has to be deleted and reinstalled. Last time it last two plays before it froze and had to be deleted. (It had averaged 30-50 plays the last week.) And it is a permanent freeze these days. I’ve let it sit for a day and it was still irretrievable without reinstall. Can’t get past the stuck ads.** Love, love this word game when it's responsive. But it gets bogged down at times, probably due to the unwieldy ads that sometimes appear. they're suppose to show up after but sometimes they interrupt the game. Happens more often when I'm using data than wifi. And some locations, like airports, are the worst. Will try the airplane mode suggestion stated by other reviewer. Thought connection was required but maybe not. Like many others, I'd pay to avoid the ads. That said, if the ads didn't cause the game to malfunction and freeze sometimes --I've had to reload this 4 times in the last couple months -- they'd be okay to endure. One has actually been informative but it's local to Michigan, so it's not one many will see. And some ads I fear are for scam apps.
Good Start—Now Let Us Pay to Remove Ads
by dcostaroberts on 2019/09/15 00:12
This is a fun, well-designed—although maybe not from a graphic design standpoint—app that will please fans of classic Boggle. I have two main complaints, though, one major and one minor. 1. The ads in the app are very intrusive and make it annoying to play multiple games on a row. The developers should definitely add an option allowing users to pay for an ad-free experience; I’d pay up to $3.00, maybe more. 2. It’d be great to be able to change the size of the letter matrix. 5x5 is the only option currently available. And while having so many options can be fun, it’s also considerably easier in some ways than a 4x4 matrix (as Boggle uses). That said, gameplay is intuitive and comfortable, and I really appreciate the use of an expansive dictionary. I’ve used similar apps whose dictionaries don’t include a lot of standard English words (“yon,” and “morn,” e.g.).
My favorite game, but frustrating
by L-to-the-M-to-the-A on 2019/11/08 18:54
This is my favorite game. I could, and sometimes do, play all day long. It is a super fun challenge. I love the three different options for playing. HOWEVER, it is very buggy. It crashes often. It also freezes more than other apps. The ads are such that in order to watch the full add, you cannot see your score when you are done watching, or especially if you actually click on the ad to find out more. I try to close the add as soon as it will let me, and even then I can only see my scores for a split second. Sometimes I am actually interested in what they are selling, but I prefer to see my scores. I don’t think the advertisers would appreciate players trying to exit as soon as possible! Also, the trophies seem a bit inconsistent. Sometimes I get a silver trophy, or even a gold trophy, for a lower score than I get when “earning” a bronze trophy. If these things could be fixed, it would be the best app in the world.
Great (but buggy) game
by iPhone Game Maniac on 2018/06/27 22:23
I have played many of the Boggle-like games, and this one has some great features. However, it crashes - a lot (especially on iPhone X). The crashing seems mostly related to ads. When an ad pops over the screen, there’s about a 50% chance the app will crash when you close the ad. Normally not too big of a deal, but sometimes it will pop up an ad in the middle of a game, and god forbid you’re having a great round, because it’s going to crash. And better keep your fingers away from the banner ad at the bottom. If it opens a page, you will need to force kill the app to get it to go away - the Done button won’t remove it. And it occasionally crashes in the middle of a game, especially when you’re giving it a lot of fast input (which is kind of the point of the game). Make a commercial, ad free version and I’ll give you my $!
Hardcore porn ad interrupted game
by maria12345 on 2018/09/02 05:59
I have played this game for a couple years at least. As others have said, the ads have gotten increasingly more intrusive and often interrupts (& then crashes) the game. However the ads were always for shopping or other games and while super annoying, easily tolerated. Tonight though, scenes from a very hardcore porn started playing mid-game with a banner option to “go to video”. Nothing was blurred or left to the imagination. Just boom, p..... & v..... in my face. After about 30 seconds, the ad ended and the game resumed. Then, during the next game, it happened again. This time for a hardcore porn featuring a donut. (I’ll let you figure that one out!) Since my young nephew plays this game on my phone when he visits me, I’ll be deleting it. So sad because this game is my absolute favorite! I would definitely buy it for an ad free version if that was an option.
Would like to keep sound, not music
by BWKWJreader on 2019/02/08 14:27
I generally like the game. I’ve only had it for a day and I haven’t left the basic mode yet - so this review is limited. I like the sound of keys as the player “hits” the letters and the bell when a usable word is found, but after a few rounds, the game turns on some very annoying music. I see a way to turn off ALL sounds, but not just the music. So far the only way to deal with this issue that I can find is to restart the round. This would probably not be a problem for most players, though, so it can hardly be called a flaw to the game.

Loved it and then... some of the shine wore off!
by Labarge on 2019/02/21 02:03
I am a recent convert to this game, and have been playing it a lot. Everything went well until yesterday suddenly I began getting voice – over messages during my gameplay. There doesn’t appear to be any way to silence them, despite the fact that I have my game on mute. I play this often while I’m waiting for a client, and it is entirely inappropriate for this loud music in voiceover to begin unexpectedly. That is a real downer for me and I guess I’ll have to leave what had become my favorite app. Why on earth would the game’s inventors decide to put a noisy ad mid-game with no visible means of silencing it? I mean, I get that you have to get sponsors, but come on guys—that’s just wrong.
Great game but........

by GoodvGrief on 2019/12/07 22:13
The longgggg ads are driving everyone crazy! Whyyyyyyy! So aggravating!!!!! If you read all the reviews, the same complaint resonates. The ads are ridiculously long! We understand the need for ads but shorter would be better. Please fix this problem or most of us will move on to other games. There are thousands to choose from. Thank you SOOOOO much for fixing the longggg ad dilemma. We all appreciate it so much! Now, if only I could get more platinum trophies on the Classic Game
One major flaw
by Blues Junkie on 2019/01/28 23:13
This game is addictive - I really like it. The one thing that I find really frustrating is an ad that does not display until you are already playing a game, then it re-starts the game after closing the ad without saving your progress. If the game picked back up where you were before the ad displayed, it would be no big deal. Also, there are a few common words that it does not recognize. But once you play it enough, you begin to remember those words and can avoid them.
I love this game... when it works correctly
by B Girl in Baltimore on 2018/09/23 03:35
I am so sick of the ads and constant crashing. It didn’t used to be this way! Otherwise, I love the actual game. It also annoys me that the ads play noise even when I have the sound off. I also wish they had an easier way to see what your score is at the end. Once they total it up the stupid trophy appears abs you can’t see the total anymore. I wish it kept a list of your top scores and the scores of your last five games or something. Just give me the option to pay for an ad-free version with enhancements and I will be happy.
Wish trophy didn’t cover up score
by Mr_Hellcat on 2018/11/22 02:41
This game is addictive - have been playing it for years, and haven’t found a better find a word game. A few versions ago, they changed the graphics to when a trophy appears (silver , gold, or platinum) it obscures the score of the game you just finished. So if you blink, you miss how well you did. Keep waiting for them to fix this. Would be much better to be able to see the score.
Love the game, hate the ads
by ScottFromUtah on 2017/12/04 20:33
I used to think this was the perfect game for me, but then more and more ads started showing up, breaking the rhythm of the game, and generally being annoying. When are you going to come out with an ad-free version? I’ll gladly pay the money. One other annoyance. On my iPad, the statistic page cuts off the right side of the data on the number of platinum wins. I have won over 120 games at the platinum level, but the final digit doesn’t show up. Only the 12 appears. Please, I beg of you, fix these problems so that we can throughly enjoy your wonderful game!
Ads come at the worst possible time
by Jen if er on 2017/07/12 04:05
I really like the game, word games are awesome, but the ads pop up right in the middle of a game. Sometimes several times over and over and over. I've had games where the ads don't show up at all, but it's rare. When I'm on a roll and being timed, having an ad suddenly pop me out of the game causes me to lose my momentum and sometimes I'll lose my place. I have to hurry up and cancel the ad, go back to the main page and then press resume to continue my game. Wouldn't be so bad if that ads came in between games only.
See all the reviews yet do nothing about the ADS!!
by mglvj1108 on 2019/10/02 10:49
Played this game for years, now the ridiculous ads. The App Store sees all the negative reviews regarding the ads...some are 30 seconds and then wait another 10-15 seconds for the x cancel button to pop up, sometimes it doesn’t even do that! Question, why have a “write a review” if clearly do nothing about the complaint or bad reviews? Apparently it’s a waste of time. Perhaps if enough people deleting the app, then will you do something about it? That’s how WE the players win and stop playing corporate, psychological mind games..the ole bait and switch?
I’ve kept this one forever
by aclhannahfan on 2018/10/27 04:46
Love this game, I’ve had it on my phone for years and always go back to it. The only thing that bugs me is that if I don’t pay attention to my score or get distracted while it’s tallying then the trophy gets in the way and then I have no way of knowing what I got for sure. Lately it’s been glitching so the music of the ads won’t turn off, but I just mute my phone. Still a fun game.

Why don’t you offer an ad-free version of the game?
Hate this Game
by Zilla62 on 2019/10/06 16:50
Love the game for when I am waiting somewhere and need something to do. MOST IRRITATING IS THE TEDIOUS AND USELESS COMMERCIALS, I HATEcTHEM and I have deleted the game yet again. I play it until the ads start coming (this current case they were wanting to be nbuying more games). This time the ads started after a few games, really quick. So I deleted it yet again. This is disappointing. All I want to do is play the game, not buy others. I would happily pay a modest amount for the game without all the nonsense, but NO ONE is listening so out it goes (again), I am not trying it again. What a disappointing
Ads are Killing this otherwise great game.
by D4rthcr4nk on 2019/11/09 05:16
I’ve had this game on my phone for roughly 10 years now- just about ready to remove it entirely due to the intolerably intrusive ads. <update> I did remove the game, later re-loaded it and the ads are suddenly much more tolerable. My history and stats are gone, but worth deleting and reinstalling if ads are killing the game for you too.
Love the game, hate the ads
by SeaHen17 on 2017/09/16 18:09
Hey developers, please consider selling an ad free version of this game. The game itself is great but after a couple of weeks of play I start getting ads saying I've got malware that I can't figure out how to close without clicking on a link. I've had to delete and reinstall several times, losing all high scores each time. I'm about 1 reinstall away from finding another game by a different developer if you can't/won't solve this!
Good game; needs updates
by DonMulder66 on 2019/03/22 14:11
There’s really nothing like this game - most word finds are much smaller in the number of letters available. But lately the ads pop up in the middle of games and closing them makes the entire game crash. Buggy! Also more options are needed for users - let users select amount of time - 2 minutes or 200 words (about 20 minutes) is not much of a choice. Increments of 5, 10, 15 minutes would be welcome.
Soooo addictive, buuuutttt.........
by CornerstoneMike on 2019/02/26 22:45
I am getting annoyed that the high value letters get buried in the perimeter of the grid (10 point Z in the corner surrounded by L, S and P????). I almost never see an X, and maybe ONCE, a Q. But I’m sure I wouldn’t score any points with them anyway,the way they get buried. How about moving them into the main field and start giving us a chance to get some serious points with some serious words? Amazingly, ergonomically, marginalization. How about words like that?
Play it often
by G'ma Rosey on 2017/12/11 21:28
I like this game but I have one problem. It seems to me the scoring is irregular. Maybe it's just me, but if I have some seven letter words and 34 words total and at least one word that is 2,3, 4, 5, and six letters and no mistakes, I expect a silver. But I don't always get it. Also, it seems like sometimes I get more time to play. Is that true, or is it me?
Too many ads, no fun to play now
by Ex chic on 2017/07/25 02:53
I used to love this game and started getting back into it. Too many ads now, it gets to the point where it feels like every 5 seconds I have to get out of the ad and back to the game. Sometimes when I get out of the ad, it takes me out of the game completely and I lose the progress and have to start over. Too frustrating, which is too bad because I really like the game.
Addictive but the “bugs” make it so annoying
by 4walky4 on 2019/05/10 03:40
When it worked smoothly,I used to really enjoy playing. But recently it has been freezing up, ads ad nauseum, intrusive voice-overs are almost as bad as all the robot calls on phone! I hope the malfunctions get cleaned up because it’s a stimulating, quick diversion when it works well.
Wish it worked

I have to delete and reload often because of the ads. Because of the ads the thing distracts, freezes and frustrates. It would be my most favorite game otherwise. Just note that I would pay money for a version that didn’t have the ads. I have an ad blocker, even. But it still randomly lets the ads in, and if it gets turned off accidentally the app becomes a mess.
Ads are interrupting game
by atxcats on 2017/07/23 23:33
Does anyone who works on this game test new ad campaigns before implementing them? I would give this game a 5, except for the times they change their ad menu and it screws up the game. The latest ones are popups in the middle of game play from WalMart and another one telling me to upgrade my IOS. No thank you, I'm not going to introduce malware by clicking on a random link in the middle of a game! If you'd offer an adfree version for a reasonable cost, I'd take it, because when this game is not being interrupted by ads, it's actually a lot of fun!
Totally addictive. BUT why the change?
by Rainbow722 on 2019/07/27 05:26
Was really addicted to this game but suddenly the ads pop up before I can watch the progress bar to see if I’ve gotten closer to the next cup! Also, it is annoying when the sound from an ad plays while you are playing a round and there is not an ad on screen!
I used to enjoy it...
by Snailman22030 on 2019/07/26 16:07
24 Aug 2017 - I gave it some time and downloaded it again but the GAME IS STILL INTERRUPTED BY ADS. I WILL NOT CLICK THE ADS. I CLOSE SE THE GAME INSTEAD AND WILL DELETE THIS GAME IF YOU CONTINUE THAT S ANNOYING PRACTICE. --- What can I say? It's actually a brilliant game but at the risk of sounding like a broken record among all the others here... The adds are insanely annoying, cannot be shut off and some of them are even "threatening" saying that my device is infected and I must click here etc. What a load! Also... The score bars were done away with on the last update. It can be played in Airplane Mode but I can't afford to leave my phone turned off while I play a silly game. I'm forced to delete this game. Update: Things improves but now I’ve stopped playing again since the most recent update. The ads interrupt the scoring. That needs to be fixed before I’ll play again.
Great but needs attention
by Bluedogz on 2017/10/30 12:31
I totally get the point of freemium games, and don’t have any problem with ad supported apps. However, interrupting in the midst of gameplay for an ad is so intrusive as to make the game almost unplayable. I would even be willing to pay a reasonable amount for an ad free version of this game, but there doesn’t appear to be one. Either make an ad free version, or find a way to channel the ads better.
Great word game
by Camisado. on 2017/08/10 11:16
I really enjoy playing this game, however, I think there should be a new update for bug fixes. My game lags a lot while swiping letters and causes me to lose time and make errors. The game also sometimes crashes unexpectedly. Other than that, this game keeps me entertained.
Well...
by DanlPW on 2019/03/21 04:44
I’ve been playing this game for about 9 months and it’s a great little brain game but lately it keeps getting stuck and I can’t continue finding words. None of the other games I play are experiencing this so it’s not my device, I like this game but if it doesn’t fix itself I’m going to have to delete it. I’d really miss it but it’s just too frustrating. If it gets resolved I’d give it more stars.
Could be the best but it’s not
by artipat on 2018/05/22 00:59
I used to love this game till I made the mistake of downloading their “improvements “. What a farce that was - it was just to fit ads in after each 2 minute game. I could live with that, though I would have preferred to pay for the game with no ads. The final blow, however was when they ruined my rhythm- and my score by throwing in ads in the middle of a timed game! I quit then. I’ve tried to go back a few more times and nothing has changed. Too bad, it could have been the best game out there😭
A complete disaster!
by GinaZ73 on 2017/09/08 11:34
First I must say I used to love this game. I hadn't played for awhile and decided to last night. There's an awful ad about a phony virus that pops up several times mid-game! I get the fact that ads are necessary, I would have even paid for an ad-free version of this game! But to have ads pop up while swiping during the game is just unacceptable IMO. This game had a spot on my phone for years but it has to go now. I'll consider it again if you keep the ads to the beginning or end of a game.
Too many pop ups, crashes all the time
by Nadia C29 on 2017/10/26 07:29
Would be a great game if it didn't pop up an ad every other word (which eats into your time btw) and tons of crashes. In two minutes I had closed around 40 ads. That's absolutely ridiculous! I wrote down each ad and will purposefully avoid them because of this crap stain of an app. No more money or clicks for your sub par app. I uninstalled this game less than 20 minutes after installing it. I would rate it less than 1 star if I could.
Ads
by jonathomp on 2019/08/20 13:18
The game is fun but finding words is almost too easy. Unlike some other word search games, you will never run out of words before the time runs out, so you spend your whole time looking for the longest words possible. Also, a full screen ad comes up at the end of each game and by the time you are able to close it, your score screen has already finished. I get frustrated every time.
The most frustrating app ever!
by LoveToKnit on 2018/07/25 14:10
Really fun Game. The ads and the problems with them are maddening! If you accidentally touch on the ad bar on the bottom of the page the entire game freezes up in the ad. You can’t get out of the page and have to delete the entire app and reinstalled. This is happened over the last several months so it’s not a one-time glitch. I’ve decided to permanently delete it because I’ve just had it with this issue never getting resolved.
Ads have taken over the game
by Chumburrito on 2017/09/20 03:43
I used to love this game but ever since the most recent update, I am getting constant ads during the game, some with distracting sound in background and others blocking the game entirely. Sometimes the ad just ends the game and I can't get back to it. And, most annoying of all, I frequently get an ad in all caps telling me I have a virus that's going to kill my phone. Two stars are only because the game itself can be good.
Word scramble
by hmekh on 2019/09/14 11:52
Word Scramble has been my favorite game for years - until lately. Since an ad comes up after every game, and is usually so long, I often can’t see the scoring section. Part of the fun was watching that little bar move along its merry way, but I can’t see it anymore. And why must there be an ad after EVERY DOGGONE GAME? WHY? Consequently, I don’t play as much anymore. The joy is gone.
Too much obtrusive advertising & No option to purchase
by marydellcar on 2019/04/25 18:17
I would have paid to purchase this simple app but I have not been given the chance. The developer prefers to use constantly interrupting the game with pop-up ads which include opening advertising in your browser. Don’t waste your time. The game is ok & that’s why I gave it a 3 but the constant ads are maddening.

Love the game, but recently a false virus warning appears every time it is installed. This screen comes up several times a game along with the other adds. It refers the phone owner to a site to purchase anti-virus software which according to information obtained is completely fake. When Scramble is removed, no virus screen is seen on any other app. Scramble reinstalled, the virus screen appears again but only when playing this game. The company needs to check this out!!
Nice...but
by VanWool on 2018/08/08 03:27
It crashes now and then, usually at the start of a new game, maybe ten seconds in, it’ll go to an ad, then crash. Worse is when you’ve been in a game for a while and an ad appears AND IT WONT CLOSE and go back to the game. What would be a nice feature would be to have the opportunity to see all the possible words at the end of a game.
App freezes
by Lucky just on 2018/06/04 05:28
I LOVE this game, but I can have the same freeze problem that other reviewers have stated! I have cancelled the app and started all over, losing all my data, but nothing helps. The “freeze” has forced me to Just about give up. What’s really sad is that I hate the ads that freeze and, as a result, will never ever purchase any products from them.
Ruined
by Michelle*GB on 2017/09/26 21:10
This has been my favorite game for the longest time but it’s been ruined by the silly Mitsubishi ads that come on during a game and take up the lower corner of the game and block letters. I don’t play as often now and will likely give up on this game. I’d happily pay for an ad free version like many other fans. Please fix this advertising problem. Soon.
Annoying Ads
by Bobbyrunner on 2019/09/24 04:09
This has been my favorite game. I love playing this game or I used to love it. However, you have added these very annoying ads that are meaningless to me and With them in place, I am unable to view my score. This is very annoying and meaningless to me. If you need to advertise these other applications, then play them before the game starts, so please remove them. I personally will delete this game, if these annoying ads continue. Thanks Bobby
Pop up ad makes play impossible
by ginaarlie on 2017/10/11 14:20
Would be a great game... except, most of the time, pop ups cover the screen sometimes as frequently as every few seconds. Mid-word, I get a pop up, which cuts off my word, making it an error. Have to play the game with my left thumb hovering over where the X pops up to exit the ad. To boot, the ads show nothing! Pointless. Frustrating. I’m on a new iPhone with software and the app up-to-date. This is unusable.
Don’t buy: Ads are very annoying and take over the game
by Counting Blue Whales on 2019/07/27 00:44
I used to love playing, put it aside for a long time and came back to it. But now the ads come after the end of every game and take over the whole screen so you can’t see your score progress or what happened and are very annoying to clear. I complained to the support and they said they don’t support this game. Don’t buy!!!! I’d pay for ad free version but no option offered.
