Muffy Poin
by MuffyPoin on 2020/09/21 12:34
Suddenly I am not getting my games as usual. There are ads, I am asked to Enter my email address and a password, they give me codes that do not work the next time I enter them. I play this daily and like it so much but now having a world of problems!
Ads are disgusting
by ijger9ujgnerg on 2020/09/21 10:20
Gross
Words too busy
by 1Gedlee1 on 2020/09/20 22:36
Words used to be a fun game until it became inundated with commercials, competitions, prizes, etc. Half the time the screen freezes up because there’s so much going on. I purchased this application a long time ago, but eventually the commercials returned. I miss the simple Words with Friends game.
Enjoy playing, but...
by Vlcst3 on 2020/09/20 13:05
The ads are way too long! Nobody pays attention to them and it distracts from the fun of the game. Please consider much shorter ads.
Too Many Ads
by Kaiko711 on 2020/09/20 04:38
This game used to be enjoyable. Now 2-3 ads pop up after every move. It’s ridiculous, frustrating and disappointing.
Stop showing me strangers to play
by Risawines on 2020/09/20 03:44
I just want to play friends not strangers so stop shoving strangers in my face to play.
Player opponent

I would like to only see the users I want to play and not random games in my view.

Always gives me something fun to do when I’m alone
Too many ads
by Snap- on 2020/09/19 14:36
I would gladly pay for this game to avoid the very annoying ads that you need three clicks to get out of. I literally had to click out of an ad in order to finish this review. Twice.
Like the game, but...
by Bjones383 on 2020/09/19 14:34
This game Locke’s down EVERY TIME I play. I have to completely restart my devise-EVERYTIME!!
LOVE THIs GAME BUT....
by ANNA. ANNA on 2020/09/19 07:48
I download the new version and I don’t like it ! Can’t choose fast play only the old version has that option! Also I can’t be matched randomly. So I went back to the old version but it freezes or it’s a little slow
Too much
by Sujabr on 2020/09/18 23:09
Concept is good but too many extras making the game freeze up
It’s ok.
by BillBlack?? on 2020/09/18 23:09
But some of the allowable words are ridiculous. And some words that are not allowed, should allowed. It’s probably cost me many victories.
Games aren’t loading
by StragMusic on 2020/09/18 04:32
All my games won’t load and I can’t play the Solo Challenges and I get an error when trying to play Lightning game. I’m on the latest version of the app and downloaded latest version of iOS.. still not working!
Getting worse all the time
by Zarkaland on 2020/09/17 12:37
Recently the game is almost unplayable, with multiple ads popping up while trying to play, gift boxes that keep dumping unwanted “gifts across the screen which you are REQUIRED to tap to acknowledge, extra strokes required to choose your actual friends instead of “match of the day” or robot players. It’s exhausting when it used to be fun.
Too many unwanted frills
by Frustrated Longtime Player on 2020/09/17 11:54
Does anyone know of a game where I don't have to shift past all the extra garbage that I DON'T WANT!? I'll gladly watch ads to avoid being annoyed every time I come to play.
Shame on You!
by Lambuth Ladybug on 2020/09/17 10:28
I am so tired of foreign words and the phrase “This is a valid word, but we have no definition and are seeking to expand our dictionary.” At the same time, words like mewed and meowed are not allowed. What ARE past tenses of these words?! Get your act together, or i am certain that i won’t be the ONLY ONE LEAVING.
I'd like it better
by BeautifiulLouise on 2020/09/17 05:01
I like the basic Words with Friends. I don't like the extra bells and whistles, and the annoying appeals to play various games with members. The ads are very annoying. I could tolerate the ads if there weren't so many glitches. Some ads won't go away no matter that I wait for the ad to run and no matter how many timed I click on the x it often will not go away. Too often the ad stays on the screen and I can not get back to the game I'm playing. Several friends I used to play with have stopped playing WWF altogether for the same reasons. You have made a good game too complicated and annoying with too many interruptions and glitches.I gave it four stars for the basic premise but I would have given it only one because of the annoyances. I need to add, your dictionary needs renovation. You accept too many very obscure words and foreign words and reject too many standard English ones that appear in most standard English and American dictionaries.
Change!
by Spokanegirl! on 2020/09/17 02:24
You need to get rid of or lessen the time between games. It is a waste of time. The ads do nothing for me, except frustrate me.
Solo Challenge Needs improvement
by KELI38 on 2020/09/16 18:10
The solo challenge gets worse with every update. Real words are not allowed but the computer can play words with no definition or words with “non-standard spelling”. Playing solo challenge is like playing with a bully who cheats and makes up new rules while playing.
Good app but
by Lupdog23 on 2020/09/16 15:57
New update does not notify when it's my turn, and it constantly freezes after sending a move, have to close the app entirely and check if it’s my turn again
Do you want people to fail if they don’t do what you want!
by unsatisfied with changes on 2020/09/16 14:18
Doing doing 13 or even 10 or 30 point words is ridiculous! Takes away fun and set on up for failure! It locks up where you have to go out of the app and come back in. And if like I’m saying something now you’ll make it worse because you don’t like criticism even if it’s constructive on how to make it better! In solo challenges you deny words that are real in USA and allow words you have no definitions for or used in USA! You just set people up for failure to manipulate them to do what you want, you made a great app and then you’re destroying it by
Decent app
by Heathababy1570 on 2020/09/16 03:36
Have been using app for while, no complaints!
It’s rigged
by WVaborn on 2020/09/16 00:24
Starting out at the low levels, you get crap for letters while higher levels get the nice letters along with the combinations to make high scores while you have to settle for low points.
Great game but watch for scammers
by pckle998 on 2020/09/16 00:06
This is a great game. Beware of people trying to get you to invest in bitcoins. It’s happened to me several times. If you let them know that you are on to them, they disappear. You can also identify them because they are always new to the game.
Not happy
by youpickanamethen on 2020/09/15 00:01
I do not like the fact anyone can start a game with me. Need to install a blocking system. Otherwise game is okay. Just not Scrabble
Has a problem
by Lviejo on 2020/09/14 17:50
Keeps locking up when used with iPad 7. Have to bounce the iPad to get WWF working again...for a while anyway.
Help
by Jbuffalo on 2020/09/14 10:15
1 game stuck on error won’t load that has caused no games with friends to load. Deleted app reinstalled and still can’t play
Freezes up
by NJShore on 2020/09/14 02:37
Loaded, reloaded and still can’t put more than 3 words in without the screen freezing
Hideous layout
by Cranius on 2020/09/13 23:46
Way too much going on. I just want to play words with friends. Like the old game, I don’t care for all the other junk in the app.
Annoying!
by dakalirtiga on 2020/09/13 22:58
Game is fine! It’s the stupid ads that you can’t get away from. If someone knows how to get rid of them-help!!! AFTER EVERY SINGLE TURN 😡😡 Ready to leave after all these years
I’m addicted
by Variety gal on 2020/09/13 22:18
Love playing Words With Friends everyday. Feel lost if I don’t get to play. Great brain stimulation.
Words 2
by Vallenue on 2020/09/13 21:33
I made a big mistake changing over to Words 2 from original Words. I and all my friends are appalled at the newer version which really louses up the game. I have to turn off and then turn on again almost every time I want to enter a word. Something wrong here, and all my friends have the same complaint. Also, the c9lored letters are a distraction!!
Scary
by No violence please on 2020/09/13 14:55
You have an ad for a different game that pops up that involves a person or an animal in mortal danger. I HATE seeing these pop ups. Take those pop ups off my Words with Friends.
M & N
by Manu and Noodles on 2020/09/13 14:45
Has to many glitches. I was in the 20 level and had over 2000 coins. Got new phone and now starting new all over again.
My favorite game
by Manates on 2020/09/13 06:28
This is absolutely my favorite game, I’ve been enjoying it for years. The reason I gave it 4 stars is I noticed lately that so many people play the game with fake names and fake pictures, they try hard to chat with you with one purpose: gethering info about you. Please be careful everyone.
Words With Friends
by PALThairlady on 2020/09/13 01:31
Occasionally my game freezes and doesn’t load rewards. I really enjoy playing and advancing my vocabulary and spelling abilities.
Greedy
by oneoneone1 on 2020/09/12 22:56
Why is it so hard to win a decent amount of coins? Ooo, yay I get a reward of one coin. What am I supposed to do with that? Greed never wins
Site crashes
by crashing too oftem on 2020/09/12 20:52
Almost every day the site freezes. I delete the app and then get it back or I turn my phone off and restart it. It's so annoying G!!
Good game
by 4 cryin out loud on 2020/09/12 19:33
Very nice game. Works beautifully. But I don’t enjoy the constant pestering to play with strangers, setting “challenges” etc.
I am loving working with words. It is another outlet for me at this difficult time.
by still 39 on 2020/09/12 17:09
Love working with words and the competition during this stay at home time.
Would be great if it worked properly.
by Pennsylvania paddy on 2020/09/12 14:43
Keeps freezing due to new fancy but unnecessary features. May have to quit game altogether as it freezes after almost every play and I can’t get a response from the company. Also, it hasn’t kept accurate stats over the many years I’ve been playing.
Brain Matters
by Pelicano2 on 2020/09/12 07:21
Excellent game to keep you thinking while keeping you mind agile.
Illiteacy on this Site

Stop bugging me. Just let me play
by qtrim on 2020/09/12 02:12
Updated 2020: if you start using the swaps, the will “randomly” gives all vowels to keep you coming back. Deceitful. Update 6/19: I can’t believe they managed to squeeze even more stupid crap into this game. Couldn’t you offer a $5 paid version with no junk it??? I hate hate hate this update. I paid for WWF years ago so as not to be nagged. I just want to open the app, play a game and leave. But I have to be pestered with multiple notifications and offers. You’re like pitiful needy friend who begs for attention. Please make it easier to turn off your attention craving nags.
Fun & Challenging
by Kekoahoku on 2020/09/11 22:24
I enjoy playing with my friends along with people I don’t know. I’m grateful that with upgrades, I can turn off chats with specific individuals. Some men get so aggressive with wanting to chat, which is annoying. Other than that, I love the “Duels” challenge and lightning round plays!!!
Inflated highest word score
by YonahBaby... on 2020/09/11 21:48
WWF developers....please do away with giving credit to someone who has a ridiculously high score...who cares????
The game
by DaughterofaKING! on 2020/09/11 20:35
It’s fun, I enjoy the players that realize this is a GAME and NOT a DATING site. Amen Ladies!?! I only gave 3 stars because we all have room to improve our businesses n the ads r very annoying. Should be advertising free. It’s a game!

Great Game
by Hamote on 2020/09/11 04:27
It’s always so much fun to play with such awesome players, new and good friends and family. I always loved playing Scrabble with my girls and friends when they were growing up. What a great way to learn to spell and learn new words...and now you have made it more fun and easier to play, on the go, at home, traveling, vacations, etc., and even miles away. It’s my favorite word computer game like Spades is my all time favorite card game. Keep up the great work, WORDS WITH FRIENDS❣️ P.S. I love the opening Hawaii scene, such beautiful colors and scene. Even on our Staycations this year, the scene and colors make you feel like you are on a tropical island, enjoying the sun and beaches, relaxing with this FUN GAME. THANKS❣️
Fun game, torture to play
by gorgon gary on 2020/09/11 03:55
Love playing Words, but all the ridiculous animations, graphics and gimmicks are pure torture. I don’t want to see bonuses, awards, ‘words of the day’, or any other extraneous annoying and time consuming junk.
Words with Friends
by zcefdl on 2020/09/11 02:39
I play your game often but there are some things wrong with it. Several times in the “special” games there are errors. In the race game called Duels where you have to get 150 points first one of my boards gave me only consonants so I was only able to play on two boards. Of course I lost In regular games several times I have been given 5 of one vowel and then other vowels- no consonants. That doesn’t make for a good possibility of making a word in the first or second round depending on what the opponent plays. I try not to play those games. Please let me know what you are going to do to correct these errors. 201 826-0467 and now every name I try to post under is taken. Are you kidding.
Very frustrating!!!
by Johnbo S. on 2020/09/11 02:27
I was getting so frustrated with the new updated version of Words with Friends. I bought a brand new IPad and the game still doesn’t very well. Even when it says I have games to play, I can’t get into them to play. It runs slow and is so frustrating.

I am hooked!
by LarryFromOregonAnOldGuy on 2020/09/10 17:42
Great game, probably spend an hour a day playing! Just a few gripes: (1) annoying ads and game-maker lets them obscure the close button (2) should not allow any words for which the game’s “dictionary” has no definition (3) should allow me to categorically opt out of any strangers or bots ever inviting me to play with them.
Really don’t like the new version!
by deetothee on 2020/09/10 14:46
Bring back the Pro version that doesn’t have all of the cheat swaps and cheap bells and whistles all over the page. Ugh!

Rip off
by Armyhorn on 2020/09/10 09:45
On 2 different occasions, I paid my monthly premium to avoid the advertisements Nd the game doesn’t process the payment. The 9.99 is deducted from my bank account and yet, I still get advertisements. I want a refund but there is nowhere to contact customer service

OK Game
by pkps0 on 2020/09/10 02:24
Decent time waster and a way to connect with remote family and friends. Reward pop ups slow the pace and are incredibly irritating. I would not play if it didn’t provide the connection to family and friends.
Nah
by cllmpt on 2020/09/10 01:58
Update not worth it. Why add swap when you can get swap tokens. Don’t like and I can’t post this unless I give nickname why?

A fun game, but too many ads, some of which are rather long. I like some of the challenge games for points and coins, except for daily word play which is exhausting because of all the ads you have to watch to keep playing it.

by ThayerEstates on 2020/09/09 18:04
The game is fun and i love the messaging feature. However, for the last 3 weeks it has been freezing up and I have to back clear out of the app and open it up again. People I am playing with have the same problem. It is very frustrating. Also, some of the ads are way to long in length and the same ads repeat a lot. Short ads are ok. There needs to be a limit on the length of the ads
Works Fairly Well, but...

I play several times every day and enjoy it a lot. You made some changes a few weeks ago I don’t like so much though. Takes a while for the game to load and can’t pick and choose games against individual players, or at least I haven’t figured it out yet.

I am fine with paying $10 A month so I don’t see ads over and over but there is no easy way to renew it. Written twice and no solution. It will eventually ask me bit WHEN. Lost revenue so not good
Entertaining
by epeekat on 2020/09/09 13:00
Fun game, though some of the allowed words, and subsequent definitions are questionable. Be wary of scammers eager to chat, less interested in the game than your personal information.

by M.P. 13 on 2020/09/09 03:30
Words is a very enjoyable game and a great way to connect with friends and family. However, the rewards for achievements are pathetic and I do not like the way they constantly up the ante before you receive an award. (They used to have a much better system but they all but eliminated it-I suppose to encourage spending even more money on add-ons) I also disapprove of the way they push you to play with complete strangers.

Reward

Too many stupid rewards/stars/flash events Interruptions to games. A simple game between friends is all that is needed.
Annoying
by Patc124 on 2020/09/09 01:25
This game has gone downhill since the original days of playing this when it first came out. The creators/designers have OVERCOMPLICATED this game by adding too many ads, stupid and irrelevant features, etc. My one word of advice is “KISS,” which is “keep it simple, stupid)! Seriously, it should be a simple word game between two players! There shouldn’t be all this extra fluff to draw you away from the game, but instead, I’m annoyed by these lame features. Granted I’m playing on the free version... could the paid version be better? Not sure if I want to pay an arm and a leg for an ad-free version, (wondering if all that unnecessary stuff are still attached), because again, it should be a simple WORD GAME!

Pastime pleasure...
by HC in Oregon on 2017/10/07 14:17
I love this game... and have played it for years every morning with my morning cup of coffee…I play the old-fashioned way with none of the colorful play options perched above for the less astute player. I play with like-minded players (I think!) and play just for the sheer fun of building words! A wordsmith at heart I suppose. I enjoy the badges and find myself trying to achieve the set goal, however, I wish those weekly goals would scramble from high to low, low to high, and everywhere in between... not just demanding a higher target every week making it sometimes too difficult to achieve it in the time I allow myself to play. Even in the case of other players using the enticing bling aids, I still enjoy the simple pleasure of mixing letters with the use of my own brain and it matters not if other players do or do not. Somehow, with time, you find compatible playmates who keep the game challenging, yet stay true to the integrity of the basic game of Scrabble. Oh! And I occasionally like to look at my stats ... rather interesting! Thank you for this enjoyable game!
Words with Cheaters
by DrivenVA on 2018/05/04 07:37
The new version of the game features “power ups,” three options to give you an advantage over your opponent. “Hindsight” shows you the best move you could have played in a round, which may be available to you in the next round. “Word radar” shows you were you can play on the board for the current round. “Swap and play” enables you to swap letters without losing a turn. You can earn these advantages or buy them. Your use of these advantages is NOT transparent to your opponent. Moreover, may use these features repeatedly throughout the game. If you repeatedly use the swap and play feature, it is almost impossible for your opponent to get quality letters. You are no longer using your skills to compete against your opponent, you are using these advantages to win. The new features are enabling rampant cheating and sadly it now seems to be the norm. I can see maybe allowing use of one advantage during a game, but that should be transparent to your opponent. There is no opt-out to the new features and I simply do not want to play someone who is cheating. And why should my earned stats be given the same weight as someone who purchased a win? The new features of Words With Friends have driven me away from the game. Sadly, I doubt Zynga cares about enthusiasts like me, because they are certainly making a lot more money off of the new features.
Going downhill!
by Tesserae7 on 2020/03/16 13:12
I’ve been playing for years, even with some of the same people. The game started going downhill when it introduced a bunch of hints, and the latest roll out is a disaster. In the past three days I’ve been presented with 3 different 6-day challenges, and the randomly disappear, one when I had one level to go and had spent some coins to replay a match and change letters, so it was all the more infuriating. And then there’s no way to provide feedback in game, leaving a poor rating as the only option. What’s with the dictionary? How can it say a word is valid but not have a definition?! The weekly badges are nearly impossible to achieve with the limits of games one can have at once and the penalties for abandoning games where players haven’t played in days. And “play someone new” is a joke! It offers up all kinds of people that I’ve played with before, so with one empty slot left I pick someone from the list to achieve the daily goal, but I don’t get the daily goal, because I played with that person 2 years ago. Just stop it with all the colors and none sense and fix these basic issues. Also the animations for rewards take too long.
Love it
by greatot on 2017/10/08 12:14
I enjoy this game and play everyday. I find It at time intruding into space set up for me to do other things. Takes some discipline in my part. I enjoy being able to exchange lettters without penalty one time. I didn’t think being able to see spaces available where I could play would benefit but find it does help especially on a challenging environment. I like being able to chat. And presentation after the play to see if I placed my words in the best place or utilized the highest points that turn is fun. The advertisement sometime get stuck and I have to stop playing and turn off the game. I love scrabble but didn’t always have company to play. So I played the board by myself. But words with friends is so much more fun than the physical board of scrabble. I enjoy solo play but gets frustrating when I make real words and the game won’t except. I miss being able to pass the phone back and forth when out with my little ones and engage in a game. Overall I love the game and highly recommend
What Happened?
by Yak1967 on 2020/08/27 11:44
I’ve been playing this game forever. Nothing secret or magic about it, it’s essentially Scrabble. That part of the app works well and is worth 5 stars. So why the 1 star? Two reasons. First, you will NEVER find an app with as many annoying “pop-ups” in the middle of gameplay. The most frustrating part of that is that these popups aren’t even Ads. They are game announcements of new “gifts” and “rewards” that I’m willing to bet the overwhelming majority of users don’t care about. We want to play Scrabble. Period. I don’t care how many useless purple gems I’ve gotten for completing something I didn’t know I was playing and don’t really want to play. I want to play Scrabble. That’s why I downloaded the app. Second problem... FIX THE SOLO CHALLENGE. This entertaining portion of the game, which essentially pits you against AI of increasing difficulty, is fun. When it works. Which it doesn’t anymore. Ever. For weeks now. Just gets stuck and never clears, even after deleting and reinstalling the app. It’s Scrabble. How the hell did you manage to screw up the app so badly that you got a 1 star review from anyone? This app is like the doughnut shop that decides to start selling pizza too. Stay in your lane and do what you do well!!! Make doughnuts, not pizza and make a simple Scrabble app work!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why I hate this game now
by MrCostello68 on 2018/10/31 19:22
All the new features are really annoying and detract from the fun of the game. Problems were not fixed with all the new bells and whistles, and new ones were introduced. Notifications. Sometimes you get notified that it’s your turn, mostly you don’t. The badge icon hardly works so you never know how many games are waiting. Opening the app. When you first go in, it seems to randomly choose one of your games and presents as your turn. But it’s just the one game. The “Next” button isn’t active even when you have several games waiting. I now immediately exit this game. Then I see my list of active games, and the “Next” button is presented as I take each turn. Finishing. When you complete a game, you’re given an opportunity to start a new one with that player. If you do, after you make your first play, you click “Next” and it takes you back into the game you just completed even if you have several others waiting. And they still haven’t fixed the problem of prompting both the winner and loser to start a new game, even after one of you already has! What’s up with that?! Often you end up with multiple games with the same player. So annoying. I want to like this. I love the challenge of Scrabble. But this is no longer fun.
Why Doesn’t the Game Allow me to use all my Letters?
by Nurse Tido on 2020/05/27 11:49
I like words with friends and it’s a great game. But on two different occasions, when different opponents and I were very close in points and down to our last couple of letters to finish the game, the opponent will play a move and then the game will automatically say game over making them the winner. But I still have one or two letters left which can be used to make words that will make me end up having more points than them. I don’t have an opportunity to play my last couple of letters. Is it a glitch? Are the opponents cheating? In most cases when I’m down to my last letter and there are no words to make then it makes me pass and it says there are no possible words. The opponent have a chance to play or pass and then it will say who the winner is. It’s just a little frustrating when you have words that will cause you to win and you end up losing because you were never given the chance. I have screen shots of the scrabble boards that shows the points before and after I place my last letters down to show that I would have won if given the chance....if it will help the developers.
WWF in now a piece of crap.
by Winterblac on 2019/10/29 02:36
I have played this game for 10+ years. I paid for my original version, which Zynga no longer supports, thus effectively taking my money and not delivering. That is known as fraud. The original two versions of the game did not have all the crap this game now contains. I do not want to be rewarded for their arbitrary milestones, nor do I want to play games within games, nor do I want to see coins and party boxes flashing in my face. Additionally, the crap they have added now causes the games to move at a glacial pace, many times freezing when you are trying to place letters or not responding to a PLAY command. And the ultimate challenge, which occurs at least once a day, is that the game is so incapable of keeping up with the speed of play that it simply collapses. The screen blanks out to white, freezes and is not recoverable. The only way to get it back is to shut down your device and reboot. This is a clear indication that they have built a game without the industrial strength to handle all the crap they have built into it. I play with approximately 8-10 people. We ALL experience this BS. Some people I played with have quit WWF and gone to Word Chum out of frustration. Congratulations Zynga, you really have succeeded at turning a good, well-liked game into a piece of garbage.
Game going down hill
by laniejco on 2020/03/09 14:39
I love word games, and have played this one for years. Sadly, the quality of the game is going down hill, especially each time changes are made. No abbreviations are to be used, but they allow them. I mean, what is CWM? Had to look it up. But the most frustrating part is when an opponent played a word that when looked up, on the game’s dictionary, was listed as NOT a word, but yet allowed it to be played. This has happened several times. Daily bonus was 100 coins. I was out for a time due to illness, and found upon return that daily bonus is down to a coin or two a day, with every so many days offering a special item instead. My biggest problem with this, aside from the cheapness of giving a coin or two a day, is that half the time the bonus does not work when you click on it. A message will pop up saying it is not working right then please come back, but the item is checked off and there is no going back for that bonus. It is the 24th of the month, but my daily bonus dots are only on 12, and I click on this every day. This has been going on for some time. If you just want to do a crossword against others, or a computer, without all the bonuses and such, then this game will be great for you.
Failed update!
by bajomom2 on 2020/05/12 18:04
I loved playing Scrabble with my friends in college so when we moved on and away from each other, we used this to continue playing against each other with. And it was so much fun! Lately, like I’ve read in other reviews, the “showing” of the rewards takes more time to watch through than laying my tile on the board. Ok that’s fine, I still love the game. But when I updated the WWF app last night, the app stopped working?! It looks stuck with the tile turning or saying “loading...” and I can’t access any of my games anymore, ARRGH!! Usually I read the reviews but this time I didn’t because I didn’t expect the WWF app to stop working on me! Please, please fix!!! I really want to continue to play with my friends and other challengers... I really don’t want to delete this app... * * Updated app two days later with new update and STILL HAVING PROBLEMS!! New update is still not loading??? What is wrong? I can no longer plays this game and am thinking I will need to delete this and find another word game. So disappointed that this new update does not work at all. * *UPDATE #2- folks having issues try deleting the app and downloading it again- it seems to have worked for me as all my games are still there along with my data, yay!
The reviews of cheating is right!
by msfowlera on 2020/04/16 05:46
The AI cheats in solo challenges creating words that have no definition or isnt a word you can look up on the app , it says word does not exist. So how is it able to play some made up jumbled mess of words. All long creating 60+ points to gain a huge advantage over the player. Also takes up all the triple word spots leaving you nowhere decent to play while the AI takes credit for the huge amount of points over you. Same with all the player 2 player games the new hints and button to show where you can play gives most others a way to cheat or a way to just pay 2 win over everyone else. They can use as many as they want. I liked the original version of this app. I still enjoy it but the AI is weak and has to take cheat shots at you to win. I do not like or agree with the fact the AI can use fake made up false words racking up a large lump sum of points to give you a low/zero chance at winning or beatung them fairly same with using 3x triple point tiles leaving you with bad letters and no tiles for points. Fix your app maybe we would enjoy it a little more and make it fair. Shouldnt have to play AI 5+ times to win as a skilled player. 🤷🏻‍♀️
“WORDS WITH KIDS”, Is What This Is Now.
by Renseg on 2019/06/02 18:59
But it’s mostly adults that play! Add an OPT OUT function to turn off the time wasting, meaningless animations, forced “challenges” and “gifts” garbage. Latest revision has, “...New rewards and boosts”?? Has Zynga seen the recent low rated reviews at all? Why does Zynga think they shouldn’t allow an opt out? It could satisfy everyone. Or, put all that silly stuff into a “Words With Kids” game version and bring this mainstream game back to one without the silly stuff. Scrabble was/is always a game that older children, adults and seniors liked to play. Why in the world does Zynga think that in a paid game app they should FORCE everyone to waste time having to wait for these useless “challenges”, badges and other cutesy mindless distractions? Have the creators begun to think they are so clever that the thousands of reviewers expressing their HATE of this nonsense does not matter? Zynga, do you still have a marketing department who can advise on the barbarians at the gate like myself carrying torches? Hello? I shouldn’t say this, but I would rather see little ads at the bottom than this garbage. Be considerate and add an Opt Out feature in the controls section. Or don’t be considerate and charge yet another 99 cents for ad-free AND garbage-free game version.
Unfair
by Dr. Shuffle on 2019/04/03 06:30
When consumers (like myself) paid for the ad-free on apps then we don't get it anymore. That's what has happened to WWF. Developers are given a new way/opportunity to gouge users out of money by altering the app, whether ever so slightly, or totally rebranding the same app then rip users off by forcing us to pay AGAIN for things we already had. Only this time at higher prices since the demand & popularity of their apps. All of which has been established due in large part to OUR (the consumers) commitment (use), feedback & help debugging (opt-in end-user licensing) their apps, in turn, growing their companies to enormous size & wealth. Requiring repurchasing is nothing short of online fraud. Re-selling the consumers a product/service they already had, but thanks to sneakily written end-user licensing agreements, which we’re FORCED to accept to use our devices, they can freely change the rules/game as they see fit. #FarFromFairMarket #VirtualThievery
This is ridiculous.
by 481292 on 2019/09/03 15:52
I’m tired of losing games when I still have viable options. This happens with opponents and in practice games. Not only does it say game ended when it has not, it takes away the points from your last play. So if I had 376 points before it gave away the game to my opponent, it’s now saying I had 356 with 4 letters left still sitting in front of me showing me multiple plays. It’s ridiculous and it’s happened 4 times now. I even have screenshots of this. One of me putting in a word after it tells me the game has ended and having it amount to 38 points which would have allowed me to win the game. WHAT IS THIS GLITCH?! It messes up stats and all. Also what about when you try to play a word and it’s invalid but others can play that word? This is BS. I also agree with all the other crap I’ve read in reviews, words that aren’t valid in any dictionary but valid here yet says “definition not available yet” in your OWN dictionary? Obsolete words used back before any of us were born but words used today in current dictionaries unable to be played? All these crappy, childish ads? Who is this game for? Obviously our voices and opinions aren’t cared for, and it’s such a shame because these companies are built on our backs.
Great game but the dictionary is pretty weird and what’s with the flying boxes I don’t want?
by Artichoke 25 on 2019/12/29 02:07
Love the game and play it a lot but I do have a couple of beefs: 1. What’s with the dictionary? It accepts words it says are,valid words but it doesn’t have a definition for them. Some of these words are accepted on some games, not others. It also doesn’t accept perfectly good words that are in every English-language dictionary on the planet except, it seems, this one. Who writes this dictionary, anyway? And do they even speak English? There used to be a feature where you could suggest words and provide a definition. Not any more, or it’s so well hidden no one can ever find it. 2. Yeh, I know that some people don’t just want to challenge themselves to play word games, they want all kinds of gew gaws to play with, win the game for them, boxes flying around that give you the right to do whatever for extra jollies. Nice that you provide other stuff for them to do. But some of us find these annoying and distracting and would REALLY REALLY appreciate having a way to TURN THEM OFF.
Return to the old format
by wvsara on 2019/11/09 20:18
I agree with those who expressed their disappointment lately. After a long time of playing I’m about to give up. The game has lost a lot of its challenge with all the two letter words now allowed that are not legit words. They are abbreviations i.e. allowing the element table and other similar abbreviations. Stick to scrabble rules like you did when you started! Also solo puts a word in the game and then when you look in the dictionary it says definition not known and that they are working on a definition. The other day in solo play they put in the word MAGA. Why are they politicizing this game and it’s not even a word. That one really made me mad. Also I can’t delete old games which really slows down the play. Old games pop back up repeatedly and slow down play. I delete and close out and at least 10 are back up and are the same ones that I just tried to delete. Plus they say I lost (solo games) and when I go in and check it is clearly the other way and I won. I downloaded the new version at their suggestion and it is worse than ever so I went back to classic. Wish someone would pay attention to all of the other bad comments and put it back to a fun game.
Disappointed
by NiBo1 on 2019/03/21 00:52
I have been playing again for a short while. (Had stopped playing for a couple years.) During this short period back, this game has disappointed me several times. I have tried to play a couple words, which are actual words, some of which the Words With Friends dictionary even defines, yet the game tells me that the word is not valid. The dictionary even shows that other people have played the words through their “highest scoring play” section. Seriously??!!!?? I reported the issue and the first rep said they would make note of it... uh, thanks, but that doesn’t help my game play... Guess it’s time to stop playing this game again. ***UPDATE: After a couple more plays with valid word rejections, and additional correspondence with the support team (who provided no beneficial information, solution or resolution), I decided to try other versions of Words With Friends. Low and behold, Words With Friends 2 seems to be allowing words that were rejected in other versions. So far I’ve confirmed one was accepted. If this older version of the app is not going to function properly or be updated, it should just be retired. Smh
Desperate Need for iOS 13 Update
by JayCEss on 2019/10/04 10:08
Ever since the latest major iOS update I have been experiencing problems with Words With Friends that I have never before experienced. So many bugs that need to be fixed! I have been waiting since September 22 for a Words With Friends update to hopefully fix these issues. At all times, my badge app icon says 4, like I have 4 games where it’s my turn to play even after I go into the app and refresh it the main page. I think there is a bug where all of my open games is listed under only one friend’s name: it looks like I’m only playing against 1 friend with 5 open games. I messaged my cousin whom I constantly play with everyday, asking where she’d been because on my end WWF said she hadn’t played a move in 3 days (now 7) and she said we had been playing the whole time! Its the same situation with another friend, my aunt, whom I play with multiple times daily. I just can’t tell who I’m playing against! I love this game and have been regularly playing for about 6 years, but these problems I’ve been having ever since updating to iOS 13 is very upsetting and very frustrating. Please get to work on an app update that addresses these types of issues and bugs!
Word. Game review
by annetka222 on 2020/05/10 22:08
I like the word game slot . I wish the pay amount was less when your striving to swap letter. There is one big problem. It seems that many of the men on here are scammers . I have encounters about 5 of them . This scam is on the Nigerian scam which these black men impersonate white men who look like business men and start off telling you how beautiful they are . Then it escalates to talking w u everyday morning and night ! They act like they like you but In Reality they want you to invest your money which I found out is the Nigerian scam . Also when I thought something was wrong I went to a physic and yes she said I was scammed by these men. Then I went to the local police and they agreed it’s the scam ,! So can you possibly prevent these men from coming on this site because they are ruining our lives? They have American names and have 3to 4 digits after their name . They also want u to hangout on ksngout w your email address and they plY very little on the game and talk a lot !! Help us women not to be scammed . Thank you
Invalid Words being played
by PR1NCEFAN on 2019/06/01 15:08
Within the last 2-3 weeks, it’s come to my attention that invalid words by “Words With Friends” own definition, are being played. It doesn’t matter the version of game, or operating system. Examples are: squit, tov, je , and so many others. I’m to the point I’m tired of playing. It was outrageous when an opponent played JE, and I then tired to play JE. Mine was not accepted, though hers was. I thought perhaps it was the older version(s) I was playing (I have several devices), so I updated one device to the latest version and nope. Same thing. Opponents playing invalid words, but I can’t do the same. So now not only am I losing because of this bug, but now that particular device is on the latest horrible version of a game that looks like it was written for a child. All the various annoying pop ups during the game, essentially cheat power ups, and invalid words is driving me from the game. I’m over it!
Love the game, hate the gimicks
by T/dee on 2019/01/18 16:08
This is the game I play the most, but every time they update they mess it up more. They give you pop up player suggestions, and screens that get In the way and freeze up your game. This just adds frustration to what is supposed to be a fun, relaxing game. In case the makers don’t realize it, the word “ game” implies that it is supposed to be fun, not frustrating. Now they have all of these points, which might be a fun addition, but you have to jump through stupid hoops to collect them, such as pushing a button that says “Great” after you push a button that says “Claim” and read a list of “rewards”. It makes the player feel like a rat being tested in a maze. It’s all hogwash. The buttons freeze and the stupid screen won’t go away because they want me to watch a 3 second video to show me adds that I paid to not have to watch when I bought the app. My husband, who already has enormous hands that don’t work well on little screens has completely given up. It was the only game we played together, so they just gimmicked their way right out of customers.
The Devil’s Advocate
by LadeeD on 2019/03/29 13:55
Contrary to pretty much every recent review of this app, I like the new little features. I love collecting powerups. Me and my opponents openly use them and now see them as part of the game. I love collecting tile skins, and it’s fun to see me and my opponents mix and match the colors we’ve collected. I really don’t mind the event collectibles. Or the chests. Especially since they give me goals to strive toward as I play and reward me when I complete them. I’m a lot happier now that the company stopped trying to force us to switch to Words with Friends 2, which I avoid like the plague. If it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it and force that fix on us. Also glad that the whole ad issue seemed to be resolved and I don’t have ads in my paid version. If I had any gripes, it would be that they are incredibly stingy with coins (you get 3 max in your daily gift while things in the store can cost like, 100). And that once you complete all solo challenges you have to wait for the next set. If I have a daily goal that needs me to win a solo challenge, I can’t get it since I can’t replay them. I’d like that to change. But anyway, I felt compelled to write this review after seeing nothing but hate for the new features. I know a lot of people that like the features, but I guess you’re more compelled to write a review if you have a complaint, right?
PC run amok...
by qwertydeb on 2018/10/06 18:58
I am finishing the current games, and then I will delete the app. I enjoyed the original version, as inadequate as it was. In 10 years they have not expanded the dictionary. Indeed, in the UK version, they claim that “a dictionary is not yet available for your language.” (!! None. Nada.) Zynga also removed the list of words played in the UK version, so it’s nearly useless. In addition they have involuntarily enrolled me in their “win prizes” schemes in support of the Susan Komen Foundation, supporter of Planned Parenthood and abortion. They offer for $sale “power up your game”, coins that allow and encourage cheating. In addition to the new bubblegum colors, the entire experience has been infantilized. They force games with fictional characters onto my screen, some of which there is no option to withdraw. I once played this game with intelligent people from all over the world. It was a stress-buster. Now it has been heavily and thoroughly monetized, politicized like everything else (there are many “forbidden” words based on political correctness.) I’m ready to cut it loose. I regret losing the many connections I’ve made, but I look forward to spending my time more productively.
Word Game With Friends Review
by MontyHannah on 2018/12/21 00:49
Pluses: Fast moving Good board with reward squares in different places in each new game Easily addictive when not frustrating Opportunity to earn coins is recent and keeps players in the game Minuses: Opponents may have advantage in Swapping letters because he has a huge supply of Swap+ from purchasing and opponent has few and can’t swap..certain opponents always have just the right letters while other struggles with 5 i’s and 2 U’s, or a v q x c j v for example, several turns in a row...opponent with impossible letters fall behind fast as opponent surges ahead impossible for player to catch up. Throw of letters appears to not be random...all vowels or all consonants, or all consonants with no blends is frequent occurrence... Sometimes the promised 50 coins for completing challenge goal doesn’t register Sometimes Word Game presents a blank screen for a day or so...player can’t earn swap coins toward weekly goal. There might be too many U’s and V’s in the game because More often than not, I am left with them for the last few plays. The Dictionary of allowed words crack me up. So many words are Celtic, Old Scottish, Hebrew, meanings from an antiquities list I think, while many commonly used words today are not allowed. The best one yet is the one that states “ no meaning for this word at this time “ That’s it for now. Sheila
7+ years of depleting its Scrabble roots
by Proball2 on 2017/09/12 22:05
WWF is probably my most frequented app w/ the displeasure of my wife. I remember 7-8 years ago downloading the app, purchasing the ad-free version & outsmarting opponents. I used to count tiles & block moves at the end of games so opponents would get stuck w/ Q's, Z's, J's, etc... Slowly the app has been becoming more amateur friendly with word strength, a remaining letters tab, etc. I was reluctant but adjusted, & became fine with it as it made my opponents more competitive. The new Swap+ feature is total BS, and basically the reason why I'm writing this review. Please, delete this immediately. This takes away the integrity and strategy of Scrabble. Btw, the new version totally deleted many of the features WWF has recently implemented with a few bugs others have complained about (I.e. the green lightning icon). Lastly, badges are totally unfair. I remember playing the game hours on end so I had a chance to win a T-shirt. I remember having to score 5000+ pts per week while some family members only had a goal of 2000+. If you do anything in future updates, please, for the love of nerds like me, get rid of Swap+.
Used to be more fun.....
by Lilikoi White on 2019/07/26 06:08
I’ve been playing WWF for years. I thought I paid not to get ads, but evidently ads have taken over and are obnoxious and childish. I don’t appreciate the interruptions. I would rather opt out of the juvenile ads. I have also noticed that sometimes when I win a game with Practice, it is listed that I lost. Even though I don’t check my stats that often, I now know why they’re incorrect. I could not remember losing over 300 games. All of a sudden word like: ee, oo, vu and several others have been added. New words should not be added without definitions. Especially when sometimes these new words aren’t in any dictionary. I probably won’t be playing much longer. I read the reviews and even though complaints and suggestions are made to improve the game, which would be to return it to how it was, the developer has done nothing. I hope improvements are made soon. Looking for a new fun game that doesn’t bombard me with ads directed at kids.
I'd like it better
by BeautifiulLouise on 2020/09/17 05:01
I like the basic Words with Friends. I don't like the extra bells and whistles, and the annoying appeals to play various games with members. The ads are very annoying. I could tolerate the ads if there weren't so many glitches. Some ads won't go away no matter that I wait for the ad to run and no matter how many timed I click on the x it often will not go away. Too often the ad stays on the screen and I can not get back to the game I'm playing. Several friends I used to play with have stopped playing WWF altogether for the same reasons. You have made a good game too complicated and annoying with too many interruptions and glitches.I gave it four stars for the basic premise but I would have given it only one because of the annoyances. I need to add, your dictionary needs renovation. You accept too many very obscure words and foreign words and reject too many standard English ones that appear in most standard English and American dictionaries.
Horrible update
by Doug in Chicago on 2018/09/21 20:18
This would get ZERO stars if possible... I’ve been a dedicated fan of this game for a long time, but the update they did for ios12 is cluttered, rigged with all kinds of pay offers, and simply lousy... I’ve talked with the 8 people I play with regularly and they all agree this new version is awful. In response to the developer asking me to “take time and get used to the new look of the game”, I simply say, you are NOT listening to the criticism... badges won’t clear, you’re loading the game up with so many “paid feature” notifications and things that a user must clear each time they open the game... if you want revenue, why not offer the OLD game as a paid, crap-free app? I’d easily pay $10 for the old app and not have to worry about your money-grubbing, screen-clogging crap that is the main focus of this “update”!
Words with Family and Friends
by Debra L. Difatta on 2017/09/14 12:55
This is a great App on it's own merit. What I really love about words with friends is that it's a way to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away. It's a way of checking in with my nieces and nephew who otherwise I might only see on Holidays. I also like that you are able to send messages back and forth if you wish, during play "nice game!" A pat on the back is always appreciated! I like that you don't have to commit to an entire game at one sitting. I have 5-10 games going with different people at the same time. Some days I only play one word per game. And if I'm particularly busy I don't play at all. Know this, you will always have something to do when you have a moment and you will be making a connection with someone you care about at the same time. Win/win.

Crazy words
by Nikkitytom on 2018/10/05 08:53
I’m a newbie here and enjoying this game with my sister who lives in Canada. We text and play at the same time and it’s great fun. But I’m very disappointed with the Solo Challenge. I’m on the fourth level now with Archibald and his first three words were “vaw” and “bunn” and “Malkin” ... none of which are standard English words. Perhaps I’m just on the wrong page. I remember terrific “live” games with clever friends and our rules which so discouraged obscure or foreign words that if a standard dictionary didn’t cover the word, the player lost his turn. No proper names allowed and no foreign words ... which lost me many turns when I switched to French or Hindi. If these games are just an exercise in checking obscure medieval words or misspellings ... such as “bunn” ... then the game has lost its charm for me. I like testing wonderful vocabularies, reaping the benefits of a lifetime of voracious reading. Not just “tricking” opponents with words never used in today’s world by English speakers.
Help.
by deekellee on 2020/01/06 16:13
I bought a brand new phone and now the game won’t open. How do I get it to work without wiping out all of my existing games, that is, if it hasn’t caused me to time-out on all of them already? As for my opinion of the app, I give it 3 1/2 stars and I’m with everyone else about the annoying ads, especially the ones where I have to wait, what feels like a full minute, for the loud, crashing noises and obnoxious music (?) to shut up, before it finally decides to give me the exit button, when it gets good and ready, as if that will endear me to the game so much that I will succumb to its charm 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮. I also don’t give a single care about all the, bonus points, awards and other fluff. Great for those who do, but I only care about my score against my opponent and for love of the game. Now can someone please tell me how to get back into it? I’d appreciate it. Thanks. 🙂
Everything Is Overpriced + Bad Customer Service
by LaurenWriter on 2017/11/05 13:37
You literally have to play the game all day just to get 100+ points. With their new algorithm, you really do need the points to be eligible for features such as swapping tiles (30 for 450 points) since the letters you get are terrible. Recently, they also increase the amount of coins you need to be able to get these features. It’s absolutely insane. And, if you don’t have enough coins, they want you to spend $100 for 5,600 coins! Whenever I email about an issue with my coins, I get an excuse about not being able to do that. I really feel like this app, although the game is fun, is really shady. I understand they want to make money, but make it fair. They know that by giving crappy letters, players need coins to purchase features such as swap tiles. When you need 75 coins just for 5 swap tiles and it takes half a day to get those coins, it’s not fair. Oh, and they want you to pay monthly for no ads. This app is a rip off and shady. One star for that and for VERY POOR customer service.
Please be more transparent
by Redwoodtree on 2019/04/07 14:31
The developers do put regular effort into the game, which is nice. But many of their choices are just ridiculous. The fact that your opponent can use features without you knowing is almost infuriating. Please give an option to see when the opponent has swapped without losing a turn or used word radar or whatever. The dictionary is also infuriating. There are non-words, non-English words(when playing in English), there are proper nouns, the dictionary changes with no notice. There are acronyms that are allowed. For more serious word game enthusiasts these are infuriating characteristics of this game. If Scrabble was maintained in any sort of reasonable way (i.e., if there was any real competition for Words, many people would abandon this platform). Most of the development effort goes to “fun” and very little goes to game integrity, fairness, transparency and toward a more serious word player’s demographic.
Some changes are not improvements
by Dbhk49 on 2018/09/15 20:58
Good things: it's fun! I like playing with new folks as well as my regulars. I learn new and more words. The chat feature is a good feature. I appreciate that profanity is generally not allowed. Not-so-good things: why do you insert those requests to start a new game when the person identified did NOT initiate that request? I hate that new tactic. The challenge awards seemed good at first, but the levels go far too high too fast. Many of my former game friends are just no longer willing to play. THE AWARDS PROGRAM HAS KILLED THE GAME FOR MANY OF US! I will delete the game if it continues! These "not-so-brilliant" innovations hurt the game instead of helping it!GIVE US AN OPT OUT CHOICE! If it wasn't for those last bad things, I would say it is a 5 star game. Can you fix those? If not, I can. I will delete and leave it in the dust of foolish “improvements.”
Paid for the update, still have to sit through the BS
by Terwie on 2019/04/10 14:44
First let me say, in general I really like WWF. A few years ago I paid the extra for no interruptions from solicitation and other unwanted information. HOWEVER, they’ve started these bogus challenges to play 3 letter words or words that have ZQX or words that are whatever! Who cares?! I hate having to sit through the stupid graphics and interruptions to my games to find out I’ve played any of the made-up contests with no one but the game that I’m not interested in and can’t opt out of. The new Lightning round is fun, but mainly because you can do it when you choose, unlike these other little obnoxious interruptions. I don’t want to know if I play a certain amount of ZQX words, I am not interested in any made-up challenges other than with other ‘friends’ and in don’t care what the next stupid little challenge is from WWF. Stop already!!
Great game
by SpydrMunky on 2020/05/31 00:43
I’ve been playing this game for years, and I love it. Much better than any other word game in the store. I just have 2 suggestions: 1) stop moving things around when you update. Long-time players get a feel for stuff like the “next” button being in a certain spot on the screen, and we don’t want it yanked off to a different spot. 2) get rid of the time-consuming, rinky-dink animations, or at least give us an option in settings to disable them. They add nothing whatsoever to the game, only serving to slow it down and irritate me in the process. I frequently find myself saying “come on come on come on GET ON WITH IT” when collecting rewards, viewing achievements, and the like, having to just sit there and wait to move on. Great game though, thanks for listening! If you fix these 2 issues, I’ll raise my rating to 5.
Cool
by Cat_Constelation on 2020/04/06 18:06
This is a berry good app which teaches words. When you put some random letters that you think could make a word it will say I it is a valid word. The problem with it, is that there are way too many adds. I’m fine with watching lots of adds when an app gives you more coins or gold bars or whatever their type of games money’ is. But this app just has an add almost every time you make a word and play it. A cool thing about this app though, is that it has power ups. You can swap out your letters without loosing a turn, or you can see what word you could of made. You can also see all the areas you can put words in. And finally, you can have the app illuminate different boxes and the letter tiles that make a word if your stuck. This is an ok game, but please try and take out some of the adds. There are way too many.
Please fix bug
by Emeryc on 2017/09/22 00:29
I'm a longtime player and fan of WWF. It has developed a really annoying bug. Most of the time when I check the Dictionary and swipe the Dictionary screen back down, the game screen stays grayed out and the game is completely unresponsive until I reboot the phone. Another bug, more minor: I hit the Smart Match button weeks ago and it hasn't stopped since. The game is still searching for Smart Matches and comes up with one every few days. There seems to be no way to stop it. I enjoy the new power ups, even though they are overpriced. I used to get 10 or 6 coins for winning a game and now only get 4. Why? Can't find an explanation of the coin rules. You say you just added 50,000 words. Please list them or put them in the Word of the Day feature. And let people know if the new word they suggested has been accepted. The new GIF feature is annoying and unnecessary. My opponent played the word EROTICA and a GIF popped up showing extremely explicit pornography. Didn't bother me but I fear most folks would be offended. Finally, please bring back the confirmation button are hitting the PLAY button, or at least offer it as an option in Settings. It is so annoying to lose a potentially good word after accidentally hitting the PLAY button
Duel - Star Issue
by Jeeeeeska on 2020/08/31 22:57
I recently discovered the Duel game which is like the Lightning Rounds except in the Duel game it’s just you and one other person racing to get to 150 points. It’s pretty entertaining but I noticed an issue with the stars you receive at the end when you lose. It tells you if you win, you get 3 stars. If you lose, you get one star. But I noticed that when you lose, you don’t actually receive a new star, because the system removes a star from your starting total stars then “gives” you a star when you lose, so you don’t actually receive anything. This happens only when you lose. It works fine when you win. For example, if you have 50 stars before you join a Duel match, when you lose, you should gain one star to get to 51. The issue is after you lose, it shows your stars at 49, then “gives” you a star that brings you to 50. Please fix.
Non-requested games
by youngerman78 on 2020/06/30 13:56
I have loved Words With Friends over the past few years that I’ve had the game. At some point there was an update that pushes game requests from random people to me. Now, I play only with my friends, so I have every setting under my profile turned off. However, I continue to receive game requests every other time I log in (which I subsequently reject). Furthermore, every single game request sent to me so far (I’m guessing about 50 at this point) is from a female. So apparently WWF has some sort of algorithm that must look at my profile and see that I’m male so obviously only female game requests must be sent my way. Is there a way to turn off all of these random game requests entirely? I’ve tried to reach out to WWF but it was a pain to do so, so I gave up. If these random game requests don’t stop, I may be leaving WWF shortly.
Love the Game, Hate the Latest Update!
by Kathryn8888 on 2018/11/21 19:10
Reduced by one more star! This update, as I said below is TERRIBLE! To add a new game with someone I ALWAYS play against, instead of just choosing their name off of a list, I now have to search for the name. How in the world is this an improvement?!?! It’s not! It’s just annoying! Zynga doesn’t own this game anymore and PEOPLE FUN only know how to irritate not have fun! Ive played this game for years (although, I don’t see the version I have on here. It was a free upgrade from a couple of years ago, although it doesn’t really look any different. I noticed it updated last night. I HATE it. Changing things just for the sake of change isn’t the best decision. I don’t like the teeny tiny dots at the bottom that represent each game. I certainly don’t like the pop up after every turn that states it’s the other player’s turn. That’s just monotonous and completely unnecessary. I still will play, but I truly hate these silly changes!
Mostly good
by Ashyknees on 2018/11/24 03:20
I generally enjoy this game. It’s a good time-passer and the games are mostly different each time because the opponents change. My only real quarrel with this game is being given all consonants/vowels with plenty of letters left to play. Just today, I was playing two completely different people. I had all vowels in BOTH cases. I used my swap tile to replace four vowels in both cases and got four MORE vowels in one case and three vowels and ONE consonant in the other. The first game had 50 something letters left to play and the other had 70+. This is highly frustrating as it makes forming words of high value near impossible. And it happens more often than it should. I wish that this could be fixed. But this IS a good game. It just has that one terrible flaw.
Great App
by MyNicknameIsJ_ on 2020/05/07 06:55
Love the base version of WWF as well as the mini-games with lightning rounds and so forth. Keeps my brain active and is easy to use. Not a fan of the live games because the app used to glitch and crash a lot in them. There are also lots of weird scammers in the app. Haven’t figured them out yet but for some reason, I get a whole lot (1 per week or so) of men posing as someone else. So, don’t take anyone seriously or give anyone personal data. The app does let you report/ block these folks which is probably the most they can do to keep them off. So, yeah, if you keep it to real friends and/or take your opponents with a grain of salt, it’s good fun. It’s a well-designed app and doesn’t seem to be lacking anything I can think of. Only deducted a star for the live glitches and scammers. The base game is five stars for sure though.
Ads that freeze
by agr3446 on 2017/10/10 20:41
I love the game. Have played for years and am even liking that ads are becoming more targeted to my preferences. I even click through occasionally (which is of course the point). I’m ok with ads because I play the free version. However it’s so incredibly annoying when an ad isn’t scaled correctly or worse yet completely freezes and requires closing the program. Which is exactly what I do. If it freezes or won’t load or ad takes forever I just swipe closed. Sales people guide your customers to better ads that actually have the potential for being opened as opposed to ads that are so annoying I would never consider checking out the product. And development create ads that don’t free or close. Otherwise fun game and everything else works great for me.
Not a dating site!
by Sheezy69 on 2019/10/31 16:59
I used to love playing this game. It’s the only one that I still enjoy playing. But lately it’s turned into some creepy pick up site. EVERY DAY I get random creepy men asking me where I’m from, if I’m single, what are the ages of my kids, and other inappropriate stuff like that. It’s annoying. It bothers me, but I don’t want to let creeps run me off a game I still like to play, so I just ignore them. But what scares me is that there are young kids that play on there, and some naive women that will fall for their crap. It worries me that it could be being used for human trafficking. Does anyone monitor those chats in there? If not, they should, because it’s getting way out of hand! I’ve been doing my best to ignore them all, but some days I get over 4 weirdos trying to chat with me and get personal information. It’s getting to where the annoyance isn’t worth playing anymore.
App is great, layout is over stimulating
by YoshiABCC on 2020/08/22 14:23
I love this app. It’s the first one in my games folder and I have, at times, maxed out the number of games I’m allowed to play. I’ve had it since it first came out and I would login multiple times a day to make my next word. Lately, though, they’re trying to focus on keeping people involved but it’s backfiring. The app is too cluttered, advertising for solo challenges, quick play and mini game events, wanting you to reconnect with old friends and to look at all your rewards. It’s all there in your face the moment you open the app. You have to look to find your active games because they’re buried. You can’t say no or silence it for any period of time, it’s just always there, in your face. I think others feel the same way - I’m down to three active games and I only check in every few days.
Rolling suggestion at bottom of screen!
by lgdh24 on 2020/08/17 23:17
I have been playing WWF for many years. Please, take this rolling suggestion of which game I should play next, away! It is so very annoying! I am capable of picking the next game to play since I prefer to pick my own order. Currently I have about 56 games going, so I believe I can make that decision myself. Also, this latest update slows down my rhythm, having to wait until the opponents words displays slowly, one letter at a time, and only then can I see my available letters. When I’m playing back and forth , live with my opponent, it’s distracting to have to wait. Please give us the option to do away with the suggested next player. Also, what happened to the Word Wheel game? It was actually fun. We don’t need all the new flashy bells and whistles
HATE what they’ve done to the game!
by AGEON on 2019/01/08 13:26
I resisted an update for so long and finally my app crashed and would NOT recover no matter what I did. Probably by design I’m sure. The only fix was to update it. The new version? It. Is. The. WORST. Every 5 seconds it’s popping up some annoying “great, you’ve just acquired 16 tropical drinks or whatever it is.” Who cussing CARES???!!! No one likes to hear their baby is ugly, but this one is frightful. I know people need to justify their jobs by continually changing things, but this takes it to another level. You can’t hardly play a letter without having to wait for the app to spend 10 seconds telling you what a great accomplishment you’ve just achieved. Hardly an exaggeration. “AMAZING, you just played an E, you only need 4 more letters to make the word of the day!” LAME!!! It’s too busy, too frequent, and too obnoxious! I’ve tried turning off notifications in the settings and it didn’t improve anything. I hate, hate, hate - double hate - LOATHE ENTIRELY!!!!

Muffy Poin
by MuffyPoin on 2020/09/21 12:34
Suddenly I am not getting my games as usual. There are ads, I am asked to Enter my email address and a password, they give me codes that do not work the next time I enter them. I play this daily and like it so much but now having a world of problems!
Ads are disgusting
by ijger9ujgnerg on 2020/09/21 10:20
Gross
Words too busy
by 1Gedlee1 on 2020/09/20 22:36
Words used to be a fun game until it became inundated with commercials, competitions, prizes, etc. Half the time the screen freezes up because there’s so much going on. I purchased this application a long time ago, but eventually the commercials returned. I miss the simple Words with Friends game.
Enjoy playing, but...
by Vlcst3 on 2020/09/20 13:05
The ads are way too long! Nobody pays attention to them and it distracts from the fun of the game. Please consider much shorter ads.
Too Many Ads
by Kaiko711 on 2020/09/20 04:38
This game used to be enjoyable. Now 2-3 ads pop up after every move. It’s ridiculous, frustrating and disappointing.
Stop showing me strangers to play

Too many ads
by Snap- on 2020/09/19 14:36
I would gladly pay for this game to avoid the very annoying ads that you need three clicks to get out of. I literally had to click out of an ad in order to finish this review. Twice.
Like the game, but...
by Bjones383 on 2020/09/19 14:34
This game Locke’s down EVERY TIME I play. I have to completely restart my devise-EVERYTIME!!
LOVE THIs GAME BUT....
by ANNA. ANNA on 2020/09/19 07:48
I download the new version and I don’t like it ! Can’t choose fast play only the old version has that option! Also I can’t be matched randomly. So I went back to the old version but it freezes or it’s a little slow
Too much
by Sujabr on 2020/09/18 23:09
Concept is good but too many extras making the game freeze up
It’s ok.
by BillBlack?? on 2020/09/18 23:09
But some of the allowable words are ridiculous. And some words that are not allowed, should allowed. It’s probably cost me many victories.
Games aren’t loading
by StragMusic on 2020/09/18 04:32
All my games won’t load and I can’t play the Solo Challenges and I get an error when trying to play Lightning game. I’m on the latest version of the app and downloaded latest version of iOS.. still not working!
Getting worse all the time
by Zarkaland on 2020/09/17 12:37
Recently the game is almost unplayable, with multiple ads popping up while trying to play, gift boxes that keep dumping unwanted “gifts across the screen which you are REQUIRED to tap to acknowledge, extra strokes required to choose your actual friends instead of “match of the day” or robot players. It’s exhausting when it used to be fun.
Too many unwanted frills
by Frustrated Longtime Player on 2020/09/17 11:54
Does anyone know of a game where I don't have to shift past all the extra garbage that I DON'T WANT!? I'll gladly watch ads to avoid being annoyed every time I come to play.
Shame on You!
by Lambuth Ladybug on 2020/09/17 10:28
I am so tired of foreign words and the phrase “This is a valid word, but we have no definition and are seeking to expand our dictionary.” At the same time, words like mewed and meowed are not allowed. What ARE past tenses of these words?! Get your act together, or i am certain that i won’t be the ONLY ONE LEAVING.
I'd like it better
by BeautifiulLouise on 2020/09/17 05:01
I like the basic Words with Friends. I don't like the extra bells and whistles, and the annoying appeals to play various games with members. The ads are very annoying. I could tolerate the ads if there weren't so many glitches. Some ads won't go away no matter that I wait for the ad to run and no matter how many timed I click on the x it often will not go away. Too often the ad stays on the screen and I can not get back to the game I'm playing. Several friends I used to play with have stopped playing WWF altogether for the same reasons. You have made a good game too complicated and annoying with too many interruptions and glitches.I gave it four stars for the basic premise but I would have given it only one because of the annoyances. I need to add, your dictionary needs renovation. You accept too many very obscure words and foreign words and reject too many standard English ones that appear in most standard English and American dictionaries.
Change!
by Spokanegirl! on 2020/09/17 02:24
You need to get rid of or lessen the time between games. It is a waste of time. The ads do nothing for me, except frustrate me.
Solo Challenge Needs improvement
by KELI38 on 2020/09/16 18:10
The solo challenge gets worse with every update. Real words are not allowed but the computer can play words with no definition or words with “non-standard spelling”. Playing solo challenge is like playing with a bully who cheats and makes up new rules while playing.
Good app but
by Lupdog23 on 2020/09/16 15:57
New update does not notify when it's my turn, and it constantly freezes after sending a move, have to close the app entirely and check if it’s my turn again
Do you want people to fail if they don’t do what you want!
by unsatisfied with changes on 2020/09/16 14:18
Doing doing 13 or even 10 or 30 point words is ridiculous! Takes away fun and set on up for failure! It locks up where you have to go out of the app and come back in. And if like I’m saying something now you’ll make it worse because you don’t like criticism even if it’s constructive on how to make it better! In solo challenges you deny words that are real in USA and allow words you have no definitions for or used in USA! You just set people up for failure to manipulate them to do what you want, you made a great app and then you’re destroying it by
Decent app
by Heathababy1570 on 2020/09/16 03:36

It’s rigged
by WVaborn on 2020/09/16 00:24
Starting out at the low levels, you get crap for letters while higher levels get the nice letters along with the combinations to make high scores while you have to settle for low points.
Great game but watch for scammers
by pckle998 on 2020/09/16 00:06
This is a great game. Beware of people trying to get you to invest in bitcoins. It’s happened to me several times. If you let them know that you are on to them, they disappear. You can also identify them because they are always new to the game.
Not happy
by youpickanamethen on 2020/09/15 00:01
I do not like the fact anyone can start a game with me. Need to install a blocking system. Otherwise game is okay. Just not Scrabble
Has a problem

Way too much going on. I just want to play words with friends. Like the old game, I don’t care for all the other junk in the app.
Annoying!
by dakalirtiga on 2020/09/13 22:58
Game is fine! It’s the stupid ads that you can’t get away from. If someone knows how to get rid of them-help!!! AFTER EVERY SINGLE TURN 😡😡 Ready to leave after all these years

Words 2
by Vallenue on 2020/09/13 21:33
I made a big mistake changing over to Words 2 from original Words. I and all my friends are appalled at the newer version which really louses up the game. I have to turn off and then turn on again almost every time I want to enter a word. Something wrong here, and all my friends have the same complaint. Also, the c9lored letters are a distraction!!
Scary

You have an ad for a different game that pops up that involves a person or an animal in mortal danger. I HATE seeing these pop ups. Take those pop ups off my Words with Friends.

My favorite game
by Manates on 2020/09/13 06:28
This is absolutely my favorite game, I’ve been enjoying it for years. The reason I gave it 4 stars is I noticed lately that so many people play the game with fake names and fake pictures, they try hard to chat with you with one purpose: gethering info about you. Please be careful everyone.

Site crashes
by crashing too oftem on 2020/09/12 20:52
Almost every day the site freezes. I delete the app and then get it back or I turn my phone off and restart it. It's so annoying G!!
Good game
by 4 cryin out loud on 2020/09/12 19:33
Very nice game. Works beautifully. But I don’t enjoy the constant pestering to play with strangers, setting “challenges” etc.
I am loving working with words. It is another outlet for me at this difficult time.
by still 39 on 2020/09/12 17:09
Love working with words and the competition during this stay at home time.
Would be great if it worked properly.
by Pennsylvania paddy on 2020/09/12 14:43
Keeps freezing due to new fancy but unnecessary features. May have to quit game altogether as it freezes after almost every play and I can’t get a response from the company. Also, it hasn’t kept accurate stats over the many years I’ve been playing.

Updated 2020: if you start using the swaps, the will “randomly” gives all vowels to keep you coming back. Deceitful. Update 6/19: I can’t believe they managed to squeeze even more stupid crap into this game. Couldn’t you offer a $5 paid version with no junk it??? I hate hate hate this update. I paid for WWF years ago so as not to be nagged. I just want to open the app, play a game and leave. But I have to be pestered with multiple notifications and offers. You’re like pitiful needy friend who begs for attention. Please make it easier to turn off your attention craving nags.
Fun & Challenging
by Kekoahoku on 2020/09/11 22:24
I enjoy playing with my friends along with people I don’t know. I’m grateful that with upgrades, I can turn off chats with specific individuals. Some men get so aggressive with wanting to chat, which is annoying. Other than that, I love the “Duels” challenge and lightning round plays!!!

Great Game
by Hamote on 2020/09/11 04:27
It’s always so much fun to play with such awesome players, new and good friends and family. I always loved playing Scrabble with my girls and friends when they were growing up. What a great way to learn to spell and learn new words...and now you have made it more fun and easier to play, on the go, at home, traveling, vacations, etc., and even miles away. It’s my favorite word computer game like Spades is my all time favorite card game. Keep up the great work, WORDS WITH FRIENDS❣️ P.S. I love the opening Hawaii scene, such beautiful colors and scene. Even on our Staycations this year, the scene and colors make you feel like you are on a tropical island, enjoying the sun and beaches, relaxing with this FUN GAME. THANKS❣️
Fun game, torture to play

Words with Friends
by zcefdl on 2020/09/11 02:39
I play your game often but there are some things wrong with it. Several times in the “special” games there are errors. In the race game called Duels where you have to get 150 points first one of my boards gave me only consonants so I was only able to play on two boards. Of course I lost In regular games several times I have been given 5 of one vowel and then other vowels- no consonants. That doesn’t make for a good possibility of making a word in the first or second round depending on what the opponent plays. I try not to play those games. Please let me know what you are going to do to correct these errors. 201 826-0467 and now every name I try to post under is taken. Are you kidding.
Very frustrating!!!
by Johnbo S. on 2020/09/11 02:27
I was getting so frustrated with the new updated version of Words with Friends. I bought a brand new IPad and the game still doesn’t very well. Even when it says I have games to play, I can’t get into them to play. It runs slow and is so frustrating.

Great game, probably spend an hour a day playing! Just a few gripes: (1) annoying ads and game-maker lets them obscure the close button (2) should not allow any words for which the game’s “dictionary” has no definition (3) should allow me to categorically opt out of any strangers or bots ever inviting me to play with them.
Really don’t like the new version!

People I am playing with have the same problem. It is very frustrating. Also, some of the ads are way to long in length and the same ads repeat a lot. Short ads are ok. There needs to be a limit on the length of the ads

Words is a very enjoyable game and a great way to connect with friends and family. However, the rewards for achievements are pathetic and I do not like the way they constantly up the ante before you receive an award. (They used to have a much better system but they all but eliminated it-I suppose to encourage spending even more money on add-ons) I also disapprove of the way they push you to play with complete strangers.

Annoying
by Patc124 on 2020/09/09 01:25
This game has gone downhill since the original days of playing this when it first came out. The creators/designers have OVERCOMPLICATED this game by adding too many ads, stupid and irrelevant features, etc. My one word of advice is “KISS,” which is “keep it simple, stupid)! Seriously, it should be a simple word game between two players! There shouldn’t be all this extra fluff to draw you away from the game, but instead, I’m annoyed by these lame features. Granted I’m playing on the free version... could the paid version be better? Not sure if I want to pay an arm and a leg for an ad-free version, (wondering if all that unnecessary stuff are still attached), because again, it should be a simple WORD GAME!

Pastime pleasure...
by HC in Oregon on 2017/10/07 14:17
I love this game... and have played it for years every morning with my morning cup of coffee…I play the old-fashioned way with none of the colorful play options perched above for the less astute player. I play with like-minded players (I think!) and play just for the sheer fun of building words! A wordsmith at heart I suppose. I enjoy the badges and find myself trying to achieve the set goal, however, I wish those weekly goals would scramble from high to low, low to high, and everywhere in between... not just demanding a higher target every week making it sometimes too difficult to achieve it in the time I allow myself to play. Even in the case of other players using the enticing bling aids, I still enjoy the simple pleasure of mixing letters with the use of my own brain and it matters not if other players do or do not. Somehow, with time, you find compatible playmates who keep the game challenging, yet stay true to the integrity of the basic game of Scrabble. Oh! And I occasionally like to look at my stats ... rather interesting! Thank you for this enjoyable game!
Words with Cheaters
by DrivenVA on 2018/05/04 07:37
The new version of the game features “power ups,” three options to give you an advantage over your opponent. “Hindsight” shows you the best move you could have played in a round, which may be available to you in the next round. “Word radar” shows you were you can play on the board for the current round. “Swap and play” enables you to swap letters without losing a turn. You can earn these advantages or buy them. Your use of these advantages is NOT transparent to your opponent. Moreover, may use these features repeatedly throughout the game. If you repeatedly use the swap and play feature, it is almost impossible for your opponent to get quality letters. You are no longer using your skills to compete against your opponent, you are using these advantages to win. The new features are enabling rampant cheating and sadly it now seems to be the norm. I can see maybe allowing use of one advantage during a game, but that should be transparent to your opponent. There is no opt-out to the new features and I simply do not want to play someone who is cheating. And why should my earned stats be given the same weight as someone who purchased a win? The new features of Words With Friends have driven me away from the game. Sadly, I doubt Zynga cares about enthusiasts like me, because they are certainly making a lot more money off of the new features.
Going downhill!
by Tesserae7 on 2020/03/16 13:12
I’ve been playing for years, even with some of the same people. The game started going downhill when it introduced a bunch of hints, and the latest roll out is a disaster. In the past three days I’ve been presented with 3 different 6-day challenges, and the randomly disappear, one when I had one level to go and had spent some coins to replay a match and change letters, so it was all the more infuriating. And then there’s no way to provide feedback in game, leaving a poor rating as the only option. What’s with the dictionary? How can it say a word is valid but not have a definition?! The weekly badges are nearly impossible to achieve with the limits of games one can have at once and the penalties for abandoning games where players haven’t played in days. And “play someone new” is a joke! It offers up all kinds of people that I’ve played with before, so with one empty slot left I pick someone from the list to achieve the daily goal, but I don’t get the daily goal, because I played with that person 2 years ago. Just stop it with all the colors and none sense and fix these basic issues. Also the animations for rewards take too long.
Love it
by greatot on 2017/10/08 12:14
I enjoy this game and play everyday. I find It at time intruding into space set up for me to do other things. Takes some discipline in my part. I enjoy being able to exchange lettters without penalty one time. I didn’t think being able to see spaces available where I could play would benefit but find it does help especially on a challenging environment. I like being able to chat. And presentation after the play to see if I placed my words in the best place or utilized the highest points that turn is fun. The advertisement sometime get stuck and I have to stop playing and turn off the game. I love scrabble but didn’t always have company to play. So I played the board by myself. But words with friends is so much more fun than the physical board of scrabble. I enjoy solo play but gets frustrating when I make real words and the game won’t except. I miss being able to pass the phone back and forth when out with my little ones and engage in a game. Overall I love the game and highly recommend
What Happened?
by Yak1967 on 2020/08/27 11:44
I’ve been playing this game forever. Nothing secret or magic about it, it’s essentially Scrabble. That part of the app works well and is worth 5 stars. So why the 1 star? Two reasons. First, you will NEVER find an app with as many annoying “pop-ups” in the middle of gameplay. The most frustrating part of that is that these popups aren’t even Ads. They are game announcements of new “gifts” and “rewards” that I’m willing to bet the overwhelming majority of users don’t care about. We want to play Scrabble. Period. I don’t care how many useless purple gems I’ve gotten for completing something I didn’t know I was playing and don’t really want to play. I want to play Scrabble. That’s why I downloaded the app. Second problem... FIX THE SOLO CHALLENGE. This entertaining portion of the game, which essentially pits you against AI of increasing difficulty, is fun. When it works. Which it doesn’t anymore. Ever. For weeks now. Just gets stuck and never clears, even after deleting and reinstalling the app. It’s Scrabble. How the hell did you manage to screw up the app so badly that you got a 1 star review from anyone? This app is like the doughnut shop that decides to start selling pizza too. Stay in your lane and do what you do well!!! Make doughnuts, not pizza and make a simple Scrabble app work!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why I hate this game now
by MrCostello68 on 2018/10/31 19:22
All the new features are really annoying and detract from the fun of the game. Problems were not fixed with all the new bells and whistles, and new ones were introduced. Notifications. Sometimes you get notified that it’s your turn, mostly you don’t. The badge icon hardly works so you never know how many games are waiting. Opening the app. When you first go in, it seems to randomly choose one of your games and presents as your turn. But it’s just the one game. The “Next” button isn’t active even when you have several games waiting. I now immediately exit this game. Then I see my list of active games, and the “Next” button is presented as I take each turn. Finishing. When you complete a game, you’re given an opportunity to start a new one with that player. If you do, after you make your first play, you click “Next” and it takes you back into the game you just completed even if you have several others waiting. And they still haven’t fixed the problem of prompting both the winner and loser to start a new game, even after one of you already has! What’s up with that?! Often you end up with multiple games with the same player. So annoying. I want to like this. I love the challenge of Scrabble. But this is no longer fun.
Why Doesn’t the Game Allow me to use all my Letters?
by Nurse Tido on 2020/05/27 11:49
I like words with friends and it’s a great game. But on two different occasions, when different opponents and I were very close in points and down to our last couple of letters to finish the game, the opponent will play a move and then the game will automatically say game over making them the winner. But I still have one or two letters left which can be used to make words that will make me end up having more points than them. I don’t have an opportunity to play my last couple of letters. Is it a glitch? Are the opponents cheating? In most cases when I’m down to my last letter and there are no words to make then it makes me pass and it says there are no possible words. The opponent have a chance to play or pass and then it will say who the winner is. It’s just a little frustrating when you have words that will cause you to win and you end up losing because you were never given the chance. I have screen shots of the scrabble boards that shows the points before and after I place my last letters down to show that I would have won if given the chance....if it will help the developers.
WWF in now a piece of crap.
by Winterblac on 2019/10/29 02:36
I have played this game for 10+ years. I paid for my original version, which Zynga no longer supports, thus effectively taking my money and not delivering. That is known as fraud. The original two versions of the game did not have all the crap this game now contains. I do not want to be rewarded for their arbitrary milestones, nor do I want to play games within games, nor do I want to see coins and party boxes flashing in my face. Additionally, the crap they have added now causes the games to move at a glacial pace, many times freezing when you are trying to place letters or not responding to a PLAY command. And the ultimate challenge, which occurs at least once a day, is that the game is so incapable of keeping up with the speed of play that it simply collapses. The screen blanks out to white, freezes and is not recoverable. The only way to get it back is to shut down your device and reboot. This is a clear indication that they have built a game without the industrial strength to handle all the crap they have built into it. I play with approximately 8-10 people. We ALL experience this BS. Some people I played with have quit WWF and gone to Word Chum out of frustration. Congratulations Zynga, you really have succeeded at turning a good, well-liked game into a piece of garbage.
Game going down hill
by laniejco on 2020/03/09 14:39
I love word games, and have played this one for years. Sadly, the quality of the game is going down hill, especially each time changes are made. No abbreviations are to be used, but they allow them. I mean, what is CWM? Had to look it up. But the most frustrating part is when an opponent played a word that when looked up, on the game’s dictionary, was listed as NOT a word, but yet allowed it to be played. This has happened several times. Daily bonus was 100 coins. I was out for a time due to illness, and found upon return that daily bonus is down to a coin or two a day, with every so many days offering a special item instead. My biggest problem with this, aside from the cheapness of giving a coin or two a day, is that half the time the bonus does not work when you click on it. A message will pop up saying it is not working right then please come back, but the item is checked off and there is no going back for that bonus. It is the 24th of the month, but my daily bonus dots are only on 12, and I click on this every day. This has been going on for some time. If you just want to do a crossword against others, or a computer, without all the bonuses and such, then this game will be great for you.
Failed update!
by bajomom2 on 2020/05/12 18:04
I loved playing Scrabble with my friends in college so when we moved on and away from each other, we used this to continue playing against each other with. And it was so much fun! Lately, like I’ve read in other reviews, the “showing” of the rewards takes more time to watch through than laying my tile on the board. Ok that’s fine, I still love the game. But when I updated the WWF app last night, the app stopped working?! It looks stuck with the tile turning or saying “loading...” and I can’t access any of my games anymore, ARRGH!! Usually I read the reviews but this time I didn’t because I didn’t expect the WWF app to stop working on me! Please, please fix!!! I really want to continue to play with my friends and other challengers... I really don’t want to delete this app... * * Updated app two days later with new update and STILL HAVING PROBLEMS!! New update is still not loading??? What is wrong? I can no longer plays this game and am thinking I will need to delete this and find another word game. So disappointed that this new update does not work at all. * *UPDATE #2- folks having issues try deleting the app and downloading it again- it seems to have worked for me as all my games are still there along with my data, yay!
The reviews of cheating is right!
by msfowlera on 2020/04/16 05:46
The AI cheats in solo challenges creating words that have no definition or isnt a word you can look up on the app , it says word does not exist. So how is it able to play some made up jumbled mess of words. All long creating 60+ points to gain a huge advantage over the player. Also takes up all the triple word spots leaving you nowhere decent to play while the AI takes credit for the huge amount of points over you. Same with all the player 2 player games the new hints and button to show where you can play gives most others a way to cheat or a way to just pay 2 win over everyone else. They can use as many as they want. I liked the original version of this app. I still enjoy it but the AI is weak and has to take cheat shots at you to win. I do not like or agree with the fact the AI can use fake made up false words racking up a large lump sum of points to give you a low/zero chance at winning or beatung them fairly same with using 3x triple point tiles leaving you with bad letters and no tiles for points. Fix your app maybe we would enjoy it a little more and make it fair. Shouldnt have to play AI 5+ times to win as a skilled player. 🤷🏻‍♀️
“WORDS WITH KIDS”, Is What This Is Now.
by Renseg on 2019/06/02 18:59
But it’s mostly adults that play! Add an OPT OUT function to turn off the time wasting, meaningless animations, forced “challenges” and “gifts” garbage. Latest revision has, “...New rewards and boosts”?? Has Zynga seen the recent low rated reviews at all? Why does Zynga think they shouldn’t allow an opt out? It could satisfy everyone. Or, put all that silly stuff into a “Words With Kids” game version and bring this mainstream game back to one without the silly stuff. Scrabble was/is always a game that older children, adults and seniors liked to play. Why in the world does Zynga think that in a paid game app they should FORCE everyone to waste time having to wait for these useless “challenges”, badges and other cutesy mindless distractions? Have the creators begun to think they are so clever that the thousands of reviewers expressing their HATE of this nonsense does not matter? Zynga, do you still have a marketing department who can advise on the barbarians at the gate like myself carrying torches? Hello? I shouldn’t say this, but I would rather see little ads at the bottom than this garbage. Be considerate and add an Opt Out feature in the controls section. Or don’t be considerate and charge yet another 99 cents for ad-free AND garbage-free game version.
Unfair
by Dr. Shuffle on 2019/04/03 06:30
When consumers (like myself) paid for the ad-free on apps then we don't get it anymore. That's what has happened to WWF. Developers are given a new way/opportunity to gouge users out of money by altering the app, whether ever so slightly, or totally rebranding the same app then rip users off by forcing us to pay AGAIN for things we already had. Only this time at higher prices since the demand & popularity of their apps. All of which has been established due in large part to OUR (the consumers) commitment (use), feedback & help debugging (opt-in end-user licensing) their apps, in turn, growing their companies to enormous size & wealth. Requiring repurchasing is nothing short of online fraud. Re-selling the consumers a product/service they already had, but thanks to sneakily written end-user licensing agreements, which we’re FORCED to accept to use our devices, they can freely change the rules/game as they see fit. #FarFromFairMarket #VirtualThievery
This is ridiculous.
by 481292 on 2019/09/03 15:52
I’m tired of losing games when I still have viable options. This happens with opponents and in practice games. Not only does it say game ended when it has not, it takes away the points from your last play. So if I had 376 points before it gave away the game to my opponent, it’s now saying I had 356 with 4 letters left still sitting in front of me showing me multiple plays. It’s ridiculous and it’s happened 4 times now. I even have screenshots of this. One of me putting in a word after it tells me the game has ended and having it amount to 38 points which would have allowed me to win the game. WHAT IS THIS GLITCH?! It messes up stats and all. Also what about when you try to play a word and it’s invalid but others can play that word? This is BS. I also agree with all the other crap I’ve read in reviews, words that aren’t valid in any dictionary but valid here yet says “definition not available yet” in your OWN dictionary? Obsolete words used back before any of us were born but words used today in current dictionaries unable to be played? All these crappy, childish ads? Who is this game for? Obviously our voices and opinions aren’t cared for, and it’s such a shame because these companies are built on our backs.
Great game but the dictionary is pretty weird and what’s with the flying boxes I don’t want?
by Artichoke 25 on 2019/12/29 02:07
Love the game and play it a lot but I do have a couple of beefs: 1. What’s with the dictionary? It accepts words it says are,valid words but it doesn’t have a definition for them. Some of these words are accepted on some games, not others. It also doesn’t accept perfectly good words that are in every English-language dictionary on the planet except, it seems, this one. Who writes this dictionary, anyway? And do they even speak English? There used to be a feature where you could suggest words and provide a definition. Not any more, or it’s so well hidden no one can ever find it. 2. Yeh, I know that some people don’t just want to challenge themselves to play word games, they want all kinds of gew gaws to play with, win the game for them, boxes flying around that give you the right to do whatever for extra jollies. Nice that you provide other stuff for them to do. But some of us find these annoying and distracting and would REALLY REALLY appreciate having a way to TURN THEM OFF.
Return to the old format
by wvsara on 2019/11/09 20:18
I agree with those who expressed their disappointment lately. After a long time of playing I’m about to give up. The game has lost a lot of its challenge with all the two letter words now allowed that are not legit words. They are abbreviations i.e. allowing the element table and other similar abbreviations. Stick to scrabble rules like you did when you started! Also solo puts a word in the game and then when you look in the dictionary it says definition not known and that they are working on a definition. The other day in solo play they put in the word MAGA. Why are they politicizing this game and it’s not even a word. That one really made me mad. Also I can’t delete old games which really slows down the play. Old games pop back up repeatedly and slow down play. I delete and close out and at least 10 are back up and are the same ones that I just tried to delete. Plus they say I lost (solo games) and when I go in and check it is clearly the other way and I won. I downloaded the new version at their suggestion and it is worse than ever so I went back to classic. Wish someone would pay attention to all of the other bad comments and put it back to a fun game.
Disappointed
by NiBo1 on 2019/03/21 00:52
I have been playing again for a short while. (Had stopped playing for a couple years.) During this short period back, this game has disappointed me several times. I have tried to play a couple words, which are actual words, some of which the Words With Friends dictionary even defines, yet the game tells me that the word is not valid. The dictionary even shows that other people have played the words through their “highest scoring play” section. Seriously??!!!?? I reported the issue and the first rep said they would make note of it... uh, thanks, but that doesn’t help my game play... Guess it’s time to stop playing this game again. ***UPDATE: After a couple more plays with valid word rejections, and additional correspondence with the support team (who provided no beneficial information, solution or resolution), I decided to try other versions of Words With Friends. Low and behold, Words With Friends 2 seems to be allowing words that were rejected in other versions. So far I’ve confirmed one was accepted. If this older version of the app is not going to function properly or be updated, it should just be retired. Smh
Desperate Need for iOS 13 Update
by JayCEss on 2019/10/04 10:08
Ever since the latest major iOS update I have been experiencing problems with Words With Friends that I have never before experienced. So many bugs that need to be fixed! I have been waiting since September 22 for a Words With Friends update to hopefully fix these issues. At all times, my badge app icon says 4, like I have 4 games where it’s my turn to play even after I go into the app and refresh it the main page. I think there is a bug where all of my open games is listed under only one friend’s name: it looks like I’m only playing against 1 friend with 5 open games. I messaged my cousin whom I constantly play with everyday, asking where she’d been because on my end WWF said she hadn’t played a move in 3 days (now 7) and she said we had been playing the whole time! Its the same situation with another friend, my aunt, whom I play with multiple times daily. I just can’t tell who I’m playing against! I love this game and have been regularly playing for about 6 years, but these problems I’ve been having ever since updating to iOS 13 is very upsetting and very frustrating. Please get to work on an app update that addresses these types of issues and bugs!
Word. Game review
by annetka222 on 2020/05/10 22:08
I like the word game slot . I wish the pay amount was less when your striving to swap letter. There is one big problem. It seems that many of the men on here are scammers . I have encounters about 5 of them . This scam is on the Nigerian scam which these black men impersonate white men who look like business men and start off telling you how beautiful they are . Then it escalates to talking w u everyday morning and night ! They act like they like you but In Reality they want you to invest your money which I found out is the Nigerian scam . Also when I thought something was wrong I went to a physic and yes she said I was scammed by these men. Then I went to the local police and they agreed it’s the scam ,! So can you possibly prevent these men from coming on this site because they are ruining our lives? They have American names and have 3to 4 digits after their name . They also want u to hangout on ksngout w your email address and they plY very little on the game and talk a lot !! Help us women not to be scammed . Thank you
Invalid Words being played
by PR1NCEFAN on 2019/06/01 15:08
Within the last 2-3 weeks, it’s come to my attention that invalid words by “Words With Friends” own definition, are being played. It doesn’t matter the version of game, or operating system. Examples are: squit, tov, je , and so many others. I’m to the point I’m tired of playing. It was outrageous when an opponent played JE, and I then tired to play JE. Mine was not accepted, though hers was. I thought perhaps it was the older version(s) I was playing (I have several devices), so I updated one device to the latest version and nope. Same thing. Opponents playing invalid words, but I can’t do the same. So now not only am I losing because of this bug, but now that particular device is on the latest horrible version of a game that looks like it was written for a child. All the various annoying pop ups during the game, essentially cheat power ups, and invalid words is driving me from the game. I’m over it!
Love the game, hate the gimicks
by T/dee on 2019/01/18 16:08
This is the game I play the most, but every time they update they mess it up more. They give you pop up player suggestions, and screens that get In the way and freeze up your game. This just adds frustration to what is supposed to be a fun, relaxing game. In case the makers don’t realize it, the word “ game” implies that it is supposed to be fun, not frustrating. Now they have all of these points, which might be a fun addition, but you have to jump through stupid hoops to collect them, such as pushing a button that says “Great” after you push a button that says “Claim” and read a list of “rewards”. It makes the player feel like a rat being tested in a maze. It’s all hogwash. The buttons freeze and the stupid screen won’t go away because they want me to watch a 3 second video to show me adds that I paid to not have to watch when I bought the app. My husband, who already has enormous hands that don’t work well on little screens has completely given up. It was the only game we played together, so they just gimmicked their way right out of customers.
The Devil’s Advocate
by LadeeD on 2019/03/29 13:55
Contrary to pretty much every recent review of this app, I like the new little features. I love collecting powerups. Me and my opponents openly use them and now see them as part of the game. I love collecting tile skins, and it’s fun to see me and my opponents mix and match the colors we’ve collected. I really don’t mind the event collectibles. Or the chests. Especially since they give me goals to strive toward as I play and reward me when I complete them. I’m a lot happier now that the company stopped trying to force us to switch to Words with Friends 2, which I avoid like the plague. If it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it and force that fix on us. Also glad that the whole ad issue seemed to be resolved and I don’t have ads in my paid version. If I had any gripes, it would be that they are incredibly stingy with coins (you get 3 max in your daily gift while things in the store can cost like, 100). And that once you complete all solo challenges you have to wait for the next set. If I have a daily goal that needs me to win a solo challenge, I can’t get it since I can’t replay them. I’d like that to change. But anyway, I felt compelled to write this review after seeing nothing but hate for the new features. I know a lot of people that like the features, but I guess you’re more compelled to write a review if you have a complaint, right?
PC run amok...
by qwertydeb on 2018/10/06 18:58
I am finishing the current games, and then I will delete the app. I enjoyed the original version, as inadequate as it was. In 10 years they have not expanded the dictionary. Indeed, in the UK version, they claim that “a dictionary is not yet available for your language.” (!! None. Nada.) Zynga also removed the list of words played in the UK version, so it’s nearly useless. In addition they have involuntarily enrolled me in their “win prizes” schemes in support of the Susan Komen Foundation, supporter of Planned Parenthood and abortion. They offer for $sale “power up your game”, coins that allow and encourage cheating. In addition to the new bubblegum colors, the entire experience has been infantilized. They force games with fictional characters onto my screen, some of which there is no option to withdraw. I once played this game with intelligent people from all over the world. It was a stress-buster. Now it has been heavily and thoroughly monetized, politicized like everything else (there are many “forbidden” words based on political correctness.) I’m ready to cut it loose. I regret losing the many connections I’ve made, but I look forward to spending my time more productively.
Word Game With Friends Review
by MontyHannah on 2018/12/21 00:49
Pluses: Fast moving Good board with reward squares in different places in each new game Easily addictive when not frustrating Opportunity to earn coins is recent and keeps players in the game Minuses: Opponents may have advantage in Swapping letters because he has a huge supply of Swap+ from purchasing and opponent has few and can’t swap..certain opponents always have just the right letters while other struggles with 5 i’s and 2 U’s, or a v q x c j v for example, several turns in a row...opponent with impossible letters fall behind fast as opponent surges ahead impossible for player to catch up. Throw of letters appears to not be random...all vowels or all consonants, or all consonants with no blends is frequent occurrence... Sometimes the promised 50 coins for completing challenge goal doesn’t register Sometimes Word Game presents a blank screen for a day or so...player can’t earn swap coins toward weekly goal. There might be too many U’s and V’s in the game because More often than not, I am left with them for the last few plays. The Dictionary of allowed words crack me up. So many words are Celtic, Old Scottish, Hebrew, meanings from an antiquities list I think, while many commonly used words today are not allowed. The best one yet is the one that states “ no meaning for this word at this time “ That’s it for now. Sheila
7+ years of depleting its Scrabble roots
by Proball2 on 2017/09/12 22:05
WWF is probably my most frequented app w/ the displeasure of my wife. I remember 7-8 years ago downloading the app, purchasing the ad-free version & outsmarting opponents. I used to count tiles & block moves at the end of games so opponents would get stuck w/ Q's, Z's, J's, etc... Slowly the app has been becoming more amateur friendly with word strength, a remaining letters tab, etc. I was reluctant but adjusted, & became fine with it as it made my opponents more competitive. The new Swap+ feature is total BS, and basically the reason why I'm writing this review. Please, delete this immediately. This takes away the integrity and strategy of Scrabble. Btw, the new version totally deleted many of the features WWF has recently implemented with a few bugs others have complained about (I.e. the green lightning icon). Lastly, badges are totally unfair. I remember playing the game hours on end so I had a chance to win a T-shirt. I remember having to score 5000+ pts per week while some family members only had a goal of 2000+. If you do anything in future updates, please, for the love of nerds like me, get rid of Swap+.
Used to be more fun.....
by Lilikoi White on 2019/07/26 06:08
I’ve been playing WWF for years. I thought I paid not to get ads, but evidently ads have taken over and are obnoxious and childish. I don’t appreciate the interruptions. I would rather opt out of the juvenile ads. I have also noticed that sometimes when I win a game with Practice, it is listed that I lost. Even though I don’t check my stats that often, I now know why they’re incorrect. I could not remember losing over 300 games. All of a sudden word like: ee, oo, vu and several others have been added. New words should not be added without definitions. Especially when sometimes these new words aren’t in any dictionary. I probably won’t be playing much longer. I read the reviews and even though complaints and suggestions are made to improve the game, which would be to return it to how it was, the developer has done nothing. I hope improvements are made soon. Looking for a new fun game that doesn’t bombard me with ads directed at kids.
I'd like it better
by BeautifiulLouise on 2020/09/17 05:01
I like the basic Words with Friends. I don't like the extra bells and whistles, and the annoying appeals to play various games with members. The ads are very annoying. I could tolerate the ads if there weren't so many glitches. Some ads won't go away no matter that I wait for the ad to run and no matter how many timed I click on the x it often will not go away. Too often the ad stays on the screen and I can not get back to the game I'm playing. Several friends I used to play with have stopped playing WWF altogether for the same reasons. You have made a good game too complicated and annoying with too many interruptions and glitches.I gave it four stars for the basic premise but I would have given it only one because of the annoyances. I need to add, your dictionary needs renovation. You accept too many very obscure words and foreign words and reject too many standard English ones that appear in most standard English and American dictionaries.
Horrible update
by Doug in Chicago on 2018/09/21 20:18
This would get ZERO stars if possible... I’ve been a dedicated fan of this game for a long time, but the update they did for ios12 is cluttered, rigged with all kinds of pay offers, and simply lousy... I’ve talked with the 8 people I play with regularly and they all agree this new version is awful. In response to the developer asking me to “take time and get used to the new look of the game”, I simply say, you are NOT listening to the criticism... badges won’t clear, you’re loading the game up with so many “paid feature” notifications and things that a user must clear each time they open the game... if you want revenue, why not offer the OLD game as a paid, crap-free app? I’d easily pay $10 for the old app and not have to worry about your money-grubbing, screen-clogging crap that is the main focus of this “update”!
Words with Family and Friends
by Debra L. Difatta on 2017/09/14 12:55
This is a great App on it's own merit. What I really love about words with friends is that it's a way to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away. It's a way of checking in with my nieces and nephew who otherwise I might only see on Holidays. I also like that you are able to send messages back and forth if you wish, during play "nice game!" A pat on the back is always appreciated! I like that you don't have to commit to an entire game at one sitting. I have 5-10 games going with different people at the same time. Some days I only play one word per game. And if I'm particularly busy I don't play at all. Know this, you will always have something to do when you have a moment and you will be making a connection with someone you care about at the same time. Win/win.

Crazy words
by Nikkitytom on 2018/10/05 08:53
I’m a newbie here and enjoying this game with my sister who lives in Canada. We text and play at the same time and it’s great fun. But I’m very disappointed with the Solo Challenge. I’m on the fourth level now with Archibald and his first three words were “vaw” and “bunn” and “Malkin” ... none of which are standard English words. Perhaps I’m just on the wrong page. I remember terrific “live” games with clever friends and our rules which so discouraged obscure or foreign words that if a standard dictionary didn’t cover the word, the player lost his turn. No proper names allowed and no foreign words ... which lost me many turns when I switched to French or Hindi. If these games are just an exercise in checking obscure medieval words or misspellings ... such as “bunn” ... then the game has lost its charm for me. I like testing wonderful vocabularies, reaping the benefits of a lifetime of voracious reading. Not just “tricking” opponents with words never used in today’s world by English speakers.
Help.
by deekellee on 2020/01/06 16:13
I bought a brand new phone and now the game won’t open. How do I get it to work without wiping out all of my existing games, that is, if it hasn’t caused me to time-out on all of them already? As for my opinion of the app, I give it 3 1/2 stars and I’m with everyone else about the annoying ads, especially the ones where I have to wait, what feels like a full minute, for the loud, crashing noises and obnoxious music (?) to shut up, before it finally decides to give me the exit button, when it gets good and ready, as if that will endear me to the game so much that I will succumb to its charm 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮. I also don’t give a single care about all the, bonus points, awards and other fluff. Great for those who do, but I only care about my score against my opponent and for love of the game. Now can someone please tell me how to get back into it? I’d appreciate it. Thanks. 🙂
Everything Is Overpriced + Bad Customer Service
by LaurenWriter on 2017/11/05 13:37
You literally have to play the game all day just to get 100+ points. With their new algorithm, you really do need the points to be eligible for features such as swapping tiles (30 for 450 points) since the letters you get are terrible. Recently, they also increase the amount of coins you need to be able to get these features. It’s absolutely insane. And, if you don’t have enough coins, they want you to spend $100 for 5,600 coins! Whenever I email about an issue with my coins, I get an excuse about not being able to do that. I really feel like this app, although the game is fun, is really shady. I understand they want to make money, but make it fair. They know that by giving crappy letters, players need coins to purchase features such as swap tiles. When you need 75 coins just for 5 swap tiles and it takes half a day to get those coins, it’s not fair. Oh, and they want you to pay monthly for no ads. This app is a rip off and shady. One star for that and for VERY POOR customer service.
Please be more transparent
by Redwoodtree on 2019/04/07 14:31
The developers do put regular effort into the game, which is nice. But many of their choices are just ridiculous. The fact that your opponent can use features without you knowing is almost infuriating. Please give an option to see when the opponent has swapped without losing a turn or used word radar or whatever. The dictionary is also infuriating. There are non-words, non-English words(when playing in English), there are proper nouns, the dictionary changes with no notice. There are acronyms that are allowed. For more serious word game enthusiasts these are infuriating characteristics of this game. If Scrabble was maintained in any sort of reasonable way (i.e., if there was any real competition for Words, many people would abandon this platform). Most of the development effort goes to “fun” and very little goes to game integrity, fairness, transparency and toward a more serious word player’s demographic.
Some changes are not improvements
by Dbhk49 on 2018/09/15 20:58
Good things: it's fun! I like playing with new folks as well as my regulars. I learn new and more words. The chat feature is a good feature. I appreciate that profanity is generally not allowed. Not-so-good things: why do you insert those requests to start a new game when the person identified did NOT initiate that request? I hate that new tactic. The challenge awards seemed good at first, but the levels go far too high too fast. Many of my former game friends are just no longer willing to play. THE AWARDS PROGRAM HAS KILLED THE GAME FOR MANY OF US! I will delete the game if it continues! These "not-so-brilliant" innovations hurt the game instead of helping it!GIVE US AN OPT OUT CHOICE! If it wasn't for those last bad things, I would say it is a 5 star game. Can you fix those? If not, I can. I will delete and leave it in the dust of foolish “improvements.”
Paid for the update, still have to sit through the BS
by Terwie on 2019/04/10 14:44
First let me say, in general I really like WWF. A few years ago I paid the extra for no interruptions from solicitation and other unwanted information. HOWEVER, they’ve started these bogus challenges to play 3 letter words or words that have ZQX or words that are whatever! Who cares?! I hate having to sit through the stupid graphics and interruptions to my games to find out I’ve played any of the made-up contests with no one but the game that I’m not interested in and can’t opt out of. The new Lightning round is fun, but mainly because you can do it when you choose, unlike these other little obnoxious interruptions. I don’t want to know if I play a certain amount of ZQX words, I am not interested in any made-up challenges other than with other ‘friends’ and in don’t care what the next stupid little challenge is from WWF. Stop already!!
Great game
by SpydrMunky on 2020/05/31 00:43
I’ve been playing this game for years, and I love it. Much better than any other word game in the store. I just have 2 suggestions: 1) stop moving things around when you update. Long-time players get a feel for stuff like the “next” button being in a certain spot on the screen, and we don’t want it yanked off to a different spot. 2) get rid of the time-consuming, rinky-dink animations, or at least give us an option in settings to disable them. They add nothing whatsoever to the game, only serving to slow it down and irritate me in the process. I frequently find myself saying “come on come on come on GET ON WITH IT” when collecting rewards, viewing achievements, and the like, having to just sit there and wait to move on. Great game though, thanks for listening! If you fix these 2 issues, I’ll raise my rating to 5.
Cool
by Cat_Constelation on 2020/04/06 18:06
This is a berry good app which teaches words. When you put some random letters that you think could make a word it will say I it is a valid word. The problem with it, is that there are way too many adds. I’m fine with watching lots of adds when an app gives you more coins or gold bars or whatever their type of games money’ is. But this app just has an add almost every time you make a word and play it. A cool thing about this app though, is that it has power ups. You can swap out your letters without loosing a turn, or you can see what word you could of made. You can also see all the areas you can put words in. And finally, you can have the app illuminate different boxes and the letter tiles that make a word if your stuck. This is an ok game, but please try and take out some of the adds. There are way too many.
Please fix bug
by Emeryc on 2017/09/22 00:29
I'm a longtime player and fan of WWF. It has developed a really annoying bug. Most of the time when I check the Dictionary and swipe the Dictionary screen back down, the game screen stays grayed out and the game is completely unresponsive until I reboot the phone. Another bug, more minor: I hit the Smart Match button weeks ago and it hasn't stopped since. The game is still searching for Smart Matches and comes up with one every few days. There seems to be no way to stop it. I enjoy the new power ups, even though they are overpriced. I used to get 10 or 6 coins for winning a game and now only get 4. Why? Can't find an explanation of the coin rules. You say you just added 50,000 words. Please list them or put them in the Word of the Day feature. And let people know if the new word they suggested has been accepted. The new GIF feature is annoying and unnecessary. My opponent played the word EROTICA and a GIF popped up showing extremely explicit pornography. Didn't bother me but I fear most folks would be offended. Finally, please bring back the confirmation button are hitting the PLAY button, or at least offer it as an option in Settings. It is so annoying to lose a potentially good word after accidentally hitting the PLAY button
Duel - Star Issue
by Jeeeeeska on 2020/08/31 22:57
I recently discovered the Duel game which is like the Lightning Rounds except in the Duel game it’s just you and one other person racing to get to 150 points. It’s pretty entertaining but I noticed an issue with the stars you receive at the end when you lose. It tells you if you win, you get 3 stars. If you lose, you get one star. But I noticed that when you lose, you don’t actually receive a new star, because the system removes a star from your starting total stars then “gives” you a star when you lose, so you don’t actually receive anything. This happens only when you lose. It works fine when you win. For example, if you have 50 stars before you join a Duel match, when you lose, you should gain one star to get to 51. The issue is after you lose, it shows your stars at 49, then “gives” you a star that brings you to 50. Please fix.
Non-requested games
by youngerman78 on 2020/06/30 13:56
I have loved Words With Friends over the past few years that I’ve had the game. At some point there was an update that pushes game requests from random people to me. Now, I play only with my friends, so I have every setting under my profile turned off. However, I continue to receive game requests every other time I log in (which I subsequently reject). Furthermore, every single game request sent to me so far (I’m guessing about 50 at this point) is from a female. So apparently WWF has some sort of algorithm that must look at my profile and see that I’m male so obviously only female game requests must be sent my way. Is there a way to turn off all of these random game requests entirely? I’ve tried to reach out to WWF but it was a pain to do so, so I gave up. If these random game requests don’t stop, I may be leaving WWF shortly.
Love the Game, Hate the Latest Update!
by Kathryn8888 on 2018/11/21 19:10
Reduced by one more star! This update, as I said below is TERRIBLE! To add a new game with someone I ALWAYS play against, instead of just choosing their name off of a list, I now have to search for the name. How in the world is this an improvement?!?! It’s not! It’s just annoying! Zynga doesn’t own this game anymore and PEOPLE FUN only know how to irritate not have fun! Ive played this game for years (although, I don’t see the version I have on here. It was a free upgrade from a couple of years ago, although it doesn’t really look any different. I noticed it updated last night. I HATE it. Changing things just for the sake of change isn’t the best decision. I don’t like the teeny tiny dots at the bottom that represent each game. I certainly don’t like the pop up after every turn that states it’s the other player’s turn. That’s just monotonous and completely unnecessary. I still will play, but I truly hate these silly changes!
Mostly good
by Ashyknees on 2018/11/24 03:20
I generally enjoy this game. It’s a good time-passer and the games are mostly different each time because the opponents change. My only real quarrel with this game is being given all consonants/vowels with plenty of letters left to play. Just today, I was playing two completely different people. I had all vowels in BOTH cases. I used my swap tile to replace four vowels in both cases and got four MORE vowels in one case and three vowels and ONE consonant in the other. The first game had 50 something letters left to play and the other had 70+. This is highly frustrating as it makes forming words of high value near impossible. And it happens more often than it should. I wish that this could be fixed. But this IS a good game. It just has that one terrible flaw.
Great App
by MyNicknameIsJ_ on 2020/05/07 06:55
Love the base version of WWF as well as the mini-games with lightning rounds and so forth. Keeps my brain active and is easy to use. Not a fan of the live games because the app used to glitch and crash a lot in them. There are also lots of weird scammers in the app. Haven’t figured them out yet but for some reason, I get a whole lot (1 per week or so) of men posing as someone else. So, don’t take anyone seriously or give anyone personal data. The app does let you report/ block these folks which is probably the most they can do to keep them off. So, yeah, if you keep it to real friends and/or take your opponents with a grain of salt, it’s good fun. It’s a well-designed app and doesn’t seem to be lacking anything I can think of. Only deducted a star for the live glitches and scammers. The base game is five stars for sure though.
Ads that freeze
by agr3446 on 2017/10/10 20:41
I love the game. Have played for years and am even liking that ads are becoming more targeted to my preferences. I even click through occasionally (which is of course the point). I’m ok with ads because I play the free version. However it’s so incredibly annoying when an ad isn’t scaled correctly or worse yet completely freezes and requires closing the program. Which is exactly what I do. If it freezes or won’t load or ad takes forever I just swipe closed. Sales people guide your customers to better ads that actually have the potential for being opened as opposed to ads that are so annoying I would never consider checking out the product. And development create ads that don’t free or close. Otherwise fun game and everything else works great for me.
Not a dating site!
by Sheezy69 on 2019/10/31 16:59
I used to love playing this game. It’s the only one that I still enjoy playing. But lately it’s turned into some creepy pick up site. EVERY DAY I get random creepy men asking me where I’m from, if I’m single, what are the ages of my kids, and other inappropriate stuff like that. It’s annoying. It bothers me, but I don’t want to let creeps run me off a game I still like to play, so I just ignore them. But what scares me is that there are young kids that play on there, and some naive women that will fall for their crap. It worries me that it could be being used for human trafficking. Does anyone monitor those chats in there? If not, they should, because it’s getting way out of hand! I’ve been doing my best to ignore them all, but some days I get over 4 weirdos trying to chat with me and get personal information. It’s getting to where the annoyance isn’t worth playing anymore.
App is great, layout is over stimulating
by YoshiABCC on 2020/08/22 14:23
I love this app. It’s the first one in my games folder and I have, at times, maxed out the number of games I’m allowed to play. I’ve had it since it first came out and I would login multiple times a day to make my next word. Lately, though, they’re trying to focus on keeping people involved but it’s backfiring. The app is too cluttered, advertising for solo challenges, quick play and mini game events, wanting you to reconnect with old friends and to look at all your rewards. It’s all there in your face the moment you open the app. You have to look to find your active games because they’re buried. You can’t say no or silence it for any period of time, it’s just always there, in your face. I think others feel the same way - I’m down to three active games and I only check in every few days.
Rolling suggestion at bottom of screen!
by lgdh24 on 2020/08/17 23:17
I have been playing WWF for many years. Please, take this rolling suggestion of which game I should play next, away! It is so very annoying! I am capable of picking the next game to play since I prefer to pick my own order. Currently I have about 56 games going, so I believe I can make that decision myself. Also, this latest update slows down my rhythm, having to wait until the opponents words displays slowly, one letter at a time, and only then can I see my available letters. When I’m playing back and forth , live with my opponent, it’s distracting to have to wait. Please give us the option to do away with the suggested next player. Also, what happened to the Word Wheel game? It was actually fun. We don’t need all the new flashy bells and whistles
HATE what they’ve done to the game!
by AGEON on 2019/01/08 13:26
I resisted an update for so long and finally my app crashed and would NOT recover no matter what I did. Probably by design I’m sure. The only fix was to update it. The new version? It. Is. The. WORST. Every 5 seconds it’s popping up some annoying “great, you’ve just acquired 16 tropical drinks or whatever it is.” Who cussing CARES???!!! No one likes to hear their baby is ugly, but this one is frightful. I know people need to justify their jobs by continually changing things, but this takes it to another level. You can’t hardly play a letter without having to wait for the app to spend 10 seconds telling you what a great accomplishment you’ve just achieved. Hardly an exaggeration. “AMAZING, you just played an E, you only need 4 more letters to make the word of the day!” LAME!!! It’s too busy, too frequent, and too obnoxious! I’ve tried turning off notifications in the settings and it didn’t improve anything. I hate, hate, hate - double hate - LOATHE ENTIRELY!!!!
