Words With Friends 2 Word Game App User Reviews & Comments

Progressively worseThis game used to be fun. Scrabble is fun. Just by itself. But apparently the geniuses behind WWF2 thought they could make it even better. So they destroyed it. The game is now so crowded with awards and levels and challenges and a ton of crap that it makes playing the game a tedious disaster. There is so much extraneous garbage that it takes 10-20 seconds to load the board every time I switch to the game. I’m not talking about opening it from closed. I’m talking about switching from my email or messaging to the game that is already in progress. Now it even bogs down when I play a word. The whole screen will freeze up for 10-15 seconds before eventually moving on. The game locks up for 15 seconds if my opponent sends me a chat message while I’m playing! And when the game is over and you try to start a new game, you can’t tell if it’s working because there is no response to touching the new game button. So you hit it a couple times and the stupid thing eventually opens four or five new games. It’s frustrating and ridiculous. There should be a way to opt out of all those absurd “gaming” levels and challenges and crap. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It wasn’t and now you’ve broken it. So this time it’s up to you to go make it right. Oh and there should be some way to provide feedback to the developer beyond writing a review..Version: 13.10.4

Great Game with Cool Things!This game is so fun because you can play a Scrabble-like game with friends and family. You can friend people, and when you start a game, you don’t like, have to stay on it forever. What I mean is, the other person might be taking a while and you get bored of just sitting and waiting. So, you can go out of the game and do something else while you are waiting. You can even start a different game with another person! So you can be playing TWO or more games at once! Also, while you are in a game, you can chat with your opponent. That can be helpful sometimes. You can also block, mute, or report someone while in chat. Another thing that you can do in a game is search up words in the dictionary that they have. This game also has many fun challenges and other extra things. You’ll figure it out if you get this fun game!So far I have even learned two new words: fete and hoons. This game really can teach you new words and things. I really encourage people to get this fun and awesome Scrabble-like game, and now you can play Scrabble virtually with faraway friends and family!.Version: 14.21.1

Love playing it, but not looking at itI do very much enjoy the game. Not only is it a fun way to learn, keep your mind active and challenge yourself, it also helps you stay in touch with friends and family. I may go a week or two not communicating with others if left to initiate conversations on my own. But, I definitely don’t skip taking my turn every day and sending off a quick message using the in game chat feature. Thank you for providing that option. Personal preference, but I do not like the new version, WWF2. The colors, graphics, etc., feel more like a kids game than a game for intelligent adults. I don’t give a rip about some strangers high score or what the popular words are. Put these somewhere else if you must have them. I prefer that space to be used for in game stats like words played and definitions. These two areas should take up the entire column. If you feel you must keep other stats then make them relevant to me. Show high scores for my friends so I can congratulate them, or track the highest scoring word for the current game rather than saving it until the end..Version: 10.15.1

Beware the Scammers in ChatLike another reviewer stated, the chat feature is annoying with random people wanting to engage in chat. They ask lots of personal questions. My experiences have revealed that most of the men who initiate chat are scammers. One in particular uses multiple profile names, but the same profile picture. Another one I had the misfortune of trusting, became very hostile and agitated when I finally figured out he was a scammer. He actually said he loved me and wanted me to be the mother of his son. And yet another one wanted me to travel to the UK to meet him. Some red flags to look for is, they have a new account, have only been playing WWF for a short period. They create new aliases and new accounts. They always want to know what you do for a living and they almost always claim to be a widower. Often times too, they have very high scores/standings because they cheat. (There are apps people use to cheat). So I no longer chat with these guys whose profiles seem suspicious to me. But as for the game .... I love playing Words and I have discovered new friends and reconnected with old friends playing Words..Version: 13.62.1

Apple Pencil with iOS14 UpdateI always play Words with Friends 2 with my Apple Pencil on my iPad. I use it to scroll through the game and move tiles. However, With the new update to iOS 14, the app will not allow me to use the pencil to grab tiles once I open a game. Instead, now the pencil just scribbles all over the game board and there is no option to turn this off. I don’t need to scribble on a scrabble game board, it’s not a coloring page. It is pointless. So far, all other apps I’ve opened work fine with the pencil. Please fix to still allow the pencil to also be used to play the game by scrolling and grabbing tiles, not just as a drawing tool. Other issues I have is if you use a Word Radar and then leave that board, when you return the game closes the “radar” and then makes you “buy” another radar. They didn’t use to do this and it seems petty. Also, I like that that they allow you to change the game tile within each individual game. However, in one of my games it keeps reverting to this one game tile that I hate. Even though I have changed both my universal default tile and the individual game tile, every time I open the individual game it reverts back to this other tile that I can’t stand. It is annoying. I love WWF but constant little glitches happen enough to where I felt I needed to say something here..Version: 15.11.1

Christine Harris’ words with friends 2 reviewI enjoy most aspects of the game such as the variety of events, the ability to earn points, stars, etc, and the competition. I don’t enjoy the glitches from time to time that not even updating the app improves. These are things like taking away games when playing duels, not being able to find the quick start games with just using the plus button, not being able to play a game in rivers as it never comes up oh and who cares about the back button. I love free trades and all the plays left especially at the end of the game but the best move is not always the best move although it is 90% of the time so well worth it. What I still dislike about it the most are all the men who are trying to use a free game app as a dating service, they are annoying, constantly trying to chat when you want to play and sometimes rude. They are predictable in that they are always widows, have one child-usually a girl, and either work in over seas oil rigs or in the military. I have heard from some of the ladies that they have been asked for money and or preloaded cards. Keep adding new ways to earn points and take off some. With duels who needs the the old timed games. Also, even though I contact you with issues I get no feedback or corrections. I’ve had the same number of original words for over eight years and it never changes. And there are a couple other things not even worth mentioning..Version: 15.82.1

Addictive and educational.Besides the fact that there’s an ad for every word you play and you have to pay $9.99 for every 30 days of no ads, this game is addictive and I’m really learning....like a LOT. So much so, its not even about winning for me. I accept matches with people who have been playing 10x as long as me, who I know will beat me, just to watch them and see how they play and learn from them AND learn new words. I’m obsessed with the lightning round as well. This game is amazing. I played the old version a few years ago and obviously it didn’t impact me because I never re-downloaded it. This new version is quite a renovation. I love it! There are some glitches. Like sometimes the ’x’ that allows you to exit out of the ad doesn’t show up and I have to close and re-open the app. A lot of the ads have fake a ’x’, too. If you don’t catch it, it tricks you into clicking the ad and opens a new window. Thats annoying and deceptive. I really wish there was a one-time fee to remove ads. I really don’t want to pay $9.99 for a 30 day ad-free ”bundle.” Sounds like a subscription to me but it’s advertised as a ”bundle.” Every rose has its thorn. :D.Version: 11.63.1

Good App, But Uneven Support Outside of EnglishThis is my favorite Scrabble-type mobile game and is popular with everyone I know for providing a quality experience. One feature I particularly liked was the ability to see the definition and a link to a dictionary entry for most words played when the game is set to English. This feature is something that sets the app apart from playing the traditional board game, and when combined with other gameplay improvements, it definitely makes the app better than the tediousness that sometimes is experienced when playing Scrabble by hand. What keeps this from being 5 stars for me is that not all words when the game is set to English have an associated definition or dictionary entry (will say something like “definition unavailable”), which makes it confusing how the developers chose what words make the cut for being playable. It also takes away from the learning aspect the app provides in being able to expand your vocabulary when an unusual word with no definition is played (e.g. Qi). I play equally in two languages, and the dictionary feature is absent altogether in the second language I play in (Portuguese). I would imagine it probably is only present in English, and would be glad to see it improved and expanded to other languages in the future..Version: 12.81.1

Needs a LOT of changeHonestly I love the idea behind this app, but it has been over developed. There are entirely too many things going on and all of the different menus are a complete DISASTER, even for someone who has been playing a good while. This game neede to be completely torn down to the bare minimum and reconstructed much simpler and without the ridiculous amount of extra stuff. The second problem, and honestly the most important problem is the ads. To be perfectly honest they make the game unplayable. No one wants to sit through 30 second ads after every turn. This game was supposed to make playing online scrabble much more fun, and easier, but the ads make me want to delete it and never play again. While I do understand that it is a free game and it needs to have ads, the ads after every turn need to go away. The developers truly need to get back on track with the idea of it being fun and simple. To be honest I would pay for a version that was only the minimum, playing with friends. I think so many things about the app just make it such a nuisance to play and no fun at all. I am so sick of the general layout of the app and I know a lot of other people are frustrated too. I also know that those ads after every turn need to stop..Version: 15.60.2

The programmers don’t know the English languageIt is frustrating enough playing this game because of the way they force their little rewards on you and you have to wait for those to process before you can continue playing. But worse than ever, is that I don’t think that these people are using any valid English dictionary to determine what is a word and what is not. I have an English writing degree and I can tell you that there of been multiple times when a word should have been acceptable and was not. These are words that were acceptable in the game of Scrabble, and I suggest the programmers start using Scrabble’s Dictionary or some other valid dictionary I have a feeling this is the result of programmers who have English as a second language. Very frustrating and I am considering quitting for this reason. Since I wrote the preceding words, the developer contacted me and told me that they use the Oxford English Dictionary and that they except 160,000 words. If they indeed used the Oxford English Dictionary, they would know that it has over 600,000 words in it. And they should also know that people who play word games are generally people who have a larger vocabulary than people who think there are only 160,000 words. Their response proved my point..Version: 15.10.3

Game is screwed up on my ipadEvery time I go to play on my ipad, the game is not formatted correctly. I go to hit the drop down for rewards and it drops and goes right back up, so I can’t click anything in it. So I uninstall, then reinstall and it works. Next time I go to play, in the same day, it’s not formatted correctly again! I have to uninstall/reinstall like EVERY TIME I PLAY! My iPad is current and up to date. I am connected to wifi. I try to send them a note to explain, even have screen shots of the weirdness, but in the messaging part in the help section, it WONT LET ME ATTACH MY PICS! Then they make all these suggestions which I have done already, and ask me to send pics, and I literally just told them it won’t let me. I do, in fact, know how to attach pics, and when I say it won’t let me, it won’t let me! I’m not an idiot! (Well, maybe I am, because I keep playing and it’s so friggin frustrating!). Works fine on my iphone, but not iPad. ALSO, I never get the “pop-up” events on my iPad. They are only available on iphone. Same with the new purple coins where if you click it, it suggests where to play and highlights the letters to use to make the word. Those NEVER SHOW UP ON MY IPAD, but are there and available to use on my iphone. WHAT THE FRICK IS GOING ON? BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TO WWF2.Version: 13.80.4

Delays and catfishI play this game often and I enjoy it, but I have been noticing that when I play the lightning rounds with groups, I get an overwhelming amount of men sending me 1:1 games. I know for certain that some of them are Nigerian catfish masquerading as U.S. servicemen and surgeons who are working for the UN and on assignment overseas. I am extremely resourceful when it comes to investigating and can say without any uncertainty that the men are catfish. If anyone from WWF ops wants to discuss, I would be happy to reveal my sources. Also, when I play QuickPlay, my game lags - majorly. My board will still be loading and the opponent has 50 points before I can even look at my letters. Then, in between words, the board will load and load and by the time it finally does, the game is over and I have lost. Other times, it will say it’s searching for an opponent and I will close out of the game to restart and try again and a game is in progress and I’m about to lose, which wastes a turn. There are a lot of glitches and the catfishing needs to be addressed. For the time being, I have changed my photo to one of my dog to deter weirdos from sending me games. I have still received quite a few and I’m thinking I may need to be a bit of a catfish myself and change my photo to a sumo wrestler and my name to “Butch” or something of the like to play unscathed..Version: 15.10.3

This is a great game but....So I only gave this 3 stars because the app has a few problems. Otherwise it’s a pretty good game! I love that you can play games with tons of different people and that there are the solo challenges! But there are a few problems that get in the way. 1) There are ads after EVERY SINGLE TURN YOU TAKE. There is only one exception of this: the solo challenges. 2) sometimes I don’t even get my games when it’s my turn! I’ve had to lose countless games because it never came up that it was my turn! That i found was very annoying, and the only way that I’ve figured out how to find those games is if you log out and then log back in again. And every time you log out, even if it’s just for a second, you get all of these new player notifications, like it didn’t even realize you had been gone for a second. 3) sometimes, it says it’s my turn and then I can’t even play. It won’t let me click on games sometimes, I’ve tried reloading my app several times, and it never worked! And finally 4) the time limit on games. I think personally this is pretty annoying, you have like 10-12 days or something to play your turn, or you lose! I’m not trying to spend every day on this app! I’ve got other things to do, and sometimes I won’t come on the app for a week or more! But overall I do like the concept, but if those few things could get fixed, then I definitely would highly recommend this game. Thanks for taking the time to read this!.Version: 14.70.2

Fun game but...Fun game but... improvements can be made. The game is engaging and does connect you with friends and family but there are things that bother me. Coins, etc awarded are lacking. If I spend my time on this game (on the daily word, for example, which takes a while), I should be given more than just a few meager coins. Even the word search puzzles reward you 10 coins for 12 games. Why not at least 12? Ads are constant and overwhelming. They interrupt the flow of games and waste time. There are way too many. Time is wasted in other ways. The wait in between forming words in Duals, for example, is tedious and at times costs me the game as my opponent wins while the game is stalled. Ridiculous! Time is also depleted when we are told every little coin we have won, whether it be one or two or 10. Less updates with more info would save time, battery power and interrupt us less often. Perhaps a reward section could be used so we could check. Battery power is drained too quickly when using the app and all the ads and slowdowns already mentioned contribute to that. I hope to keep playing but wish for improvements. I do enjoy the games here but the annoyances can greatly detract from them..Version: 15.30.4

I love this game but...I have been playing this game for a few years now but I did take a break because of the overwhelming amount of men trying to pick you up. I play Everyday and sometimes for a couple of hours at a time. I enjoy most of the features and hope it just keeps getting better. I really wanted to give it four stars some things are nerve wracking with this game. The first is that when I go to watch a 30 second video to accumulate coins half the time it doesn’t work and keeps saying that it’s loading for a whole day. Please fix that. I also wish these videos gave at least 5 coins at a time but that’s not a big deal and is just my opinion. The other thing is that I continue to get game requests from men with a fake profiles. As stated in so many other reviews if you don’t chat and go to hangouts or other dating like websites they stop playing. Then that game will take up a game spot for 10+ days unless I resign which then messes up my stats. There has to be a way to work around this. Overall I love this game it’s my favorite of all time. I hope that it keeps improving and look forward to any new features. P.S I played a player a few days ago that had rainbow tiles. I asked her several times how she had the option for that style but she completely ignored me. I’m wondering is that something you would have to buy cause I would LOVE that..Version: 13.0.4

Fun, but problemsQuick play games have a couple of issues. Today I finished 1 game and started the next. But my first screen in the next game was the last screen of the previous game. And I could not clear it. First Swap attempt lead to Loading Board, but came back with same screen after several seconds. And nothing o tried made any difference. I watched as opponent’s score racked up and showed a shutout. I even turned off the iPhone screen, reopened it, entered my frozen screen, with no response to inputs. When opponent won everything reset as normal. This experience followed a game where my opponent didn’t even get on the board until my score was over 100. Reason unknown to me, obviously. Another issue I have benefited from a couple times: Somehow game loses track of available number of coins to play the game, and you can keep on playing until you feel like the earned stars lead is sufficient to win the series. i.e. coins to play never goes to zero. When you exit play, coin management returns to normal, in my experiences. A limit of 3 games in a row could be a solution to this bug, if you don’t find root cause..Version: 15.50.1

Words With Friends 2 gameGreat game to play with friends and all that if you’re a word game player type of person and all that... and I love playing the game with my friends and all that...but one game I am having a message popping up saying “Oops! Something went wrong!” And then it takes me back to the main menu where all my other friends are that I play against and everything is normal on the games I play with them...but it’s just one friend that I have been playing with and we’ve been playing against each other on a game on words with friends and all that and I messaged them on Facebook messenger if they’ve been getting the same message as I am getting and they said yes to the something went wrong message and then I asked them if they got the same message on any of their other friends games... and they said “no...just our game” and all that and I would appreciate it if someone could please help me and tell me how to get rid of the “Oops! Something went wrong!” Message on my iPhone and iPad for the words with friends 2 app and all that please. Has anyone else ever encountered with the same problem as I am having here and asking for help on here?.Version: 14.80.4

OverwhelmingThere is waaaaaay too much going on in this app. When you open it up, you are bombarded with messages about treasure hunts and mini games and contests, ads, and then when you finally get to the main menu there are always like 3 games that you didn’t agree to play with random strangers that you have to actively go into to tell it to decline in order to remove it. Underneath that there are suggestions for random strangers for you to play. There have been times where I missed that it was my turn in the one game I’m playing for over a day because there’s so much going on that I just couldn’t see our game in the menu and see that it was my turn. Then there are “tips” where the app wants you to know about a feature. Sometimes it’s hints, or a new thing that you can earn points for for whatever, but they are impossible to exit out of without agreeing to do the thing, which is really obnoxious. There have also been times where I’ve been forced to go into some new section of the app that I’m not interested and couldn’t figure out how to get back to the main screen, and has to just close the app and reopen it. This has got to be one of the most overwhelming, obnoxious apps I’ve ever used. The only reason I didn’t delete it immediately is because my friend who I never get to see really wanted to play scrabble, and we used to play in this app when it was new and less insane. I may delete it after this game though..Version: 15.60.2

Fun game, but full of scammersThere has to be some way to vet out these scammers who begin unsolicited conversations with women. They are relentless and annoying, and they have the same script. I don’t believe most of them are native English speakers based on their canned conversations and poor game-playing. After I accepted several challenges (I hoped they were due to being ‘smart matched’ with someone), 3 different men all started similar conversations with me ‘hello dear’ or using my name in another one. Then in 2 of them it led almost immediately to ‘where are you from’ and in one straight to ‘so, are you married?’ In one where I didn’t answer his repeated ‘hellos’, he finally said ‘so you don’t chat?’ I answered that and told him hello, but I was leery of chatting due to being asked those questions. He said he understood. Then next question was ‘so, where are you from?’ That’s when I looked up words with friends trolls, and found that this is a thing where ppl have actually been scammed. I don’t know what the answer is except to never say yes to a game or maybe just never open conversations with people I don’t know, but in the past I was able to say ‘good game’ or ‘nice word’ without worrying someone was going to try to solicit money from me. I love the game itself, so this stinks..Version: 15.00.6

Seriously Considering DeletingI’ve been playing WWF for many years; at this point honestly I’m not sure how long but I think since 2010 or 2011 - ever since I’ve had an iPhone I think. I participate in the events, and enjoy the wins of coins and power ups of course. But I’m really tired of the rewards being skimped on every time the game updates. For instance, the master solo challenges; it’s always the case on the hardest level I have all vowels and 1 point letters and the “very hard” master (computer generated of course” has all the high point letters. Also you used to get the gold chest for completing the expert side but now al of a sudden it’s just based on star accumulation when before that was a separate reward. This is really the last straw for me!!! Additionally, the rewards pass has gone from a reward at every level to now every other level. Did you think we don’t notice these things? Listen - I’m never going to buy coins, power ups, or upgrades but we should not be punished because we won’t buy in to the gimmick. Stop skimping and being greedy; you have enough players buying unnecessary fluff who can afford it. I’ve already deleted all my other level based games due to this and decided to keep this one because I thought it was different. Keep up the greedy and you lose me too..Version: 16.50.8

Wordy reviewI really like this game. 5+ stars for sure and more like 10 stars. The continual improvements are great and positive and have never have gone into the negative. The new game wwf's.2 has got a lot of visual improvements and I like the "new" sounds. Personally I don't like how the game repeats by showing me what the other games are or new things etc. My suggestion for that would be to put all that on the settings page. Then a person can go there to discover what's new or how many badges they have etc. rather than all that interfacing when one first starts the app. but that's just a suggestion coming from me. Other players may be totally fine with the way it is which is still pretty awesome. I couldn't at this point ever give this app/game a negative review. It's just too well designed and plays well. Thank you for the many hours of pleasure and like another reviewer said, this game really helps to learn words. I have sent in a few word suggestions that didn't get added. Not sure why but I thought I'd bring that to the developers attention. Once again, thank you very much for an outstanding app..Version: 9.93.1

Don’t waste money on coins.I’ve been playing since 2011 and noticed some things along the way. I’m finally irked enough to write a review. First off, most apps on here have a sole purpose and that is to make money for the developer and it seems to me like they use clever algorithms in order to achieve this with WWF. I always end up with all consonants or all vowels and then use a free swap that I’ve earned (you can purchase them as well) and then get more of the same essentially wasting your free swap. You might say that can happen in real life, but if you’ve played long enough you can almost predict it. I also know there are some games that I will statistically have no chance to win when all of the high value tiles go to your opponent. Again, just a pattern I’ve notice. I’ve also noticed that in the tile bag they always try to keep the consonants and vowels fairly even so I know it’s not random. Then in Quick Play where you need to have a ticket to play I would get glitches that to me seem like they are on purpose. For instance I started a game and could see my opponent already racking up points before the screen finished loading my screen to play. Sometimes I would use a ticket and it would take me back to the beginning screen and I would lose my ticket. I refuse to spend money on this app because I know it’s like playing Vegas. The odds are never in your favor. I still play it, but just know you won’t have a chance it certain games..Version: 15.76.1

Words with FriendsI love to play this game to relax; however, this game frustrate me instead. The achievement system is not reliable. I finished level 20 and should have to 21. In my profile still shows me as level 20. I am now working to earn level 22. It’s very frustrating when one works hard to achieve a level and your system takes away. In different device it’s shows correct level 21, but in this device I am using it shows level 20. I delete the app and reloaded the app and is still showing my image with a 20. Also, there are too many words that are allowed which aren’t really words. When I look for definition there is none. This game allows foreign language words when I am playing in English. I understand that there are some foreign words that have been adopted and integrated into English language and are acceptable to use, but the words I see are definable not in common use. I wish the developers would take the time to read the reviews. I read a few and they all have the same issues in common. Please read the reviews! You ask for a rating, but you don’t read the reviews. This a great game to play, but you need to fix all the glitches. We are all telling you the problems. Listen to us ..Version: 14.52.2

LONELY HEARTS CLUB WWF?This game used to be fun. This game used to be just about playing with friends, and maybe I’d get the occasional request from a stranger, and that would be okay also. The ads and game rewards have always been annoying and that hasn’t gotten any better, but that has taken a back seat to the dating site that this game has seemed to become overnight. It’s seriously ruining the whole experience for me. At first I would accept the chat only to be grilled about everything from my marital status to my religion. I appreciate the mute button but it’s not enough. There has to be some way to set some sort of privacy settings so these men can’t bother women who don’t want to be bothered to begin with. It’s become really creepy. Can we maybe accept them as friends first before ruining our stats and innundating our games with lonely men looking to hook up, who then abandon the game when you ignore them? If it weren’t for the real friends I play with and the good games I have with other women, I frankly would ditch this all together. This game gives me the creeps every time I sign in. These pathetic men have sucked the fun right out of the game, and so have you, for allowing this to continue, despite all the complaints. Shame on WFF for ruining a perfectly good game..Version: 14.00.6

I LOVE & HATE WWF2Great game improvement over regular WWF ,more fun, interesting and challenging. Buggy! Buggy! Buggy! Buggy‼️ I play daily both on my iPhone and iPad. When I started playing WWF2, there were a few incidents per month, where I had to re-boot my iPhone10. Whenever they come out with a new update, the game will crash consistently 2-4 x’s per week prior; progressively worsening to daily until you update. Then crashing is less, but still somewhat buggy after. I updated to the Winter Wonderland last week on my iPad. The first day it crashed completely and would not clear with re-booting,(times 6). I had to completely re-install the game and lost all my stored credits, history and advancements. Understandably, I have been dragging my feet about updating my iphone10 to this Winter Wonderland version, yet the game crashes several times daily and yesterday I was cheated out of 18 coins from the watch the ads binge they offer you when you claim the daily bonus! There is no avenue to contact them to report problems. Most of the problems occur when the ads play, the screen can freeze, turn dark, or the logo just spins. Hint, hint, ever pushing for you to pay for the no-ad upgrade which is expensive..Version: 15.82.1

Women Beware!!Love this game been playing 9 years. In the past year there have been a buttload of foreign men starting games with me then ask to know me “more better” how’s my husband & kids? Where am I playing from? What do I do for a living? How old am I? Etc. I accept game & will answer not trying to be rude to anyone but answer in short half truths hoping they get the hint I don’t want to talk to them & I’m a single lesbian not looking for a man. Obvious by the way they talk they are not from USA but say they are or if called out they say born not in USA but currently live in USA but are working overseas and their wife usually died in car accident or cancer or they are divorced and always have at least 1 kid. I am honest with them I’m lesbian & not looking for a relationship of any kind but then they ask if I have hangouts so I made up an account with email just for that app. Once on hangouts some have said how much they love me & looking for a mom for their kid or ask for money, iTunes or google play cards or ask for my phone provider account so they can “pay with their own money” to get a phone. All I can say is WOW this is ridiculous! I report them on WWF as soon as they ask if I have hangouts..Version: 13.70.4

Ads trap you, getting worse.First off, I really enjoy the game. I’ve even been thinking about buying some coins so I can get more power ups, but the price is just a bit too much for pretend coins in a silly game. I’d probably be willing to pay about 1/5 what they charge for coins, and I’d be a repeat customer too, but it’s not quite worth it for what they’re charging currently. As for there being ads, don’t mind them, and I don’t think there are too many (it’s just 1 ad per turn, and it’s the cost of playing for free, right?). But increasingly they’ve been placing ads that have no discernible way to exit (the X is invisible or something), so when you try to get out, it magically redirects you to the App Store or some website you didn’t want to go to. I’m not talking about exiting early. I’m talking about after the ad has played, I want to be able to exit back to the game. Now they’ve got an ad that shifts the screen sideways and has no way to exit. Again, I have no problem with there being ads, and I’ve even bought things from ads on this app, but I’ll never buy something from an ad that traps me then redirects me to somewhere I don’t want to go. They should require advertisers to have a clearly visible way of exiting the ad at the end. It’s frustrating. If this is fixed my rating would go to 4 or 5 stars..Version: 13.62.1

Great game! Horrible ads!!!!!!!The game is great. But there should be an option to pay for ad free. The old version had this. We loved that version and resisted moving to the new game for that very reason. Had I not been forced to upgrade to a newer phone that will not run the old version, I would still be very happy with that one. However, since being forced to use the newer version, I have found it to be an enjoyable improvement. I love the sounds and some of the options like hindsight, but they are not worth the insufferable, loud apps that auto play after the game sometimes. I don’t even mind the ads that promote other possible games I might like. But the video ads are the worst thing. I can’t mute my phone quickly enough, and the is no mute option. It is annoying enough that I will just quit playing at all during the hours that those ads show up. Plus, some of them have a “skip” option that just doesn’t work. I guess if you make the skip button small enough it gets folks to accidentally click through to whatever that is it keeps taking me to and they somehow profit from errant clicks even though I immediately dismiss that other page and go right back to the game. A good move would be to offer the “pay to play ad free” option, or at the very least eliminate the video ads..Version: 10.50.3

I Like It For The Most Part...I’ve been playing this for several years now, though I have removed this app at times because I get a little obsessed (lol). It’s a classic game to have and worth playing, but does not quite feel the same as playing with the board game. I hate when the game is rigged and it’s obvious that I can’t play strong words (like when I keep getting all vowels even with trading in). What’s up with all the “new” words that are now acceptable? I think too many people play with cheat websites and it’s not as fun anymore because every word they play is probably a word they can’t even pronounce. I’m sick of all the ads you have to watch to earn coins (but I refuse to purchase them, so I guess I’m stuck). And finally, I am a married female and it seems like almost every (older) male playing just does so to find someone to flirt with. Come on guys, you can be friendly and not creepy. Just play the game, and play it well. I’m so sick of guys messaging me, trying to make conversation and playing terribly!! I teach my kids not to talk to strangers and not be too open with others players in online gaming. Sheesh..Version: 15.70.3

Uninstalling...The amount of notifications this app produces is maddening. I don’t need 3-4 notifications a day about some in-game event. I’ve turned off all the notification settings in the game and it’s still happening. I’ve had to go into the global settings/notifications and only left ‘badge app icon’ turned on. This app would turn the screen on for my phone multiple times a day to show me a useless banner notification. I don’t care about your Eggstravaganza event and wouldn’t play it out of spite alone at this point. Not to mention the infuriatingly long tutorial based ad for final fantasy that happens EVERY time you complete a move. This is the only ad I’ve ever gotten. It’s faster to force quite the app and relaunch than work your way through the ad. The notifications even after all of my efforts to restrict them to something manageable are just too much. I’m finishing my current games and uninstalling. Edit: I received a developer response. Pity they couldn’t be bothered to read the third sentence of my review where I already went and turned off all the in game notifications. The problem is those settings didn’t stop the notifications I wanted to have stopped. Sending me a link to an FAQ to do something I already did isn’t helpful..Version: 11.5.1

“Oops something went wrong”I’ve had this message a couple of times, usually when trying to start a practice game. There is no way get rid of this open game, that you cannot play, that counts as one of your open practice games AND there is no way to contact the developer, outside of writing a review for the game itself, to help get rid of it. The last time this happened, they were responsive and got rid of the game for me. This time, however, not so much. I have had a practice game open, that I cannot play, for 189 days. I play the game every day. And other reviewers are indeed correct - the number of trollers has increased 10 fold over the past year or so. Now before I ever accept a game, I look up their profile to see when they became a member. If they’re new, I decline the game. I got tired of them holding up games for 10 days because I chose not to chat with them. A few are decent and will resign the game right away, but most are not. They will wait until the game resigns itself. I have put my settings so as NOT to be the daily match person, but they still find me. I sure with the developers could do something about this! And, I wish they’d close this practice game that’s been open for 189 days for me!.Version: 14.90.4

Why so buggy???This game used to be relaxing and fun to take my mind off things for awhile and then they kept tinkering and tinkering and tinkering with it - adding “levels” and “lightning play” all of which would be great if not so infuriatingly buggy. I would go on with the dozens of ways that bugs make it unplayable but these are already on dozens of forums and Facebook. As someone in IT who develops apps (yup it’s true) I can’t understand how these developers ignore the bugs. The one which finally prompted me to write this review instead of deleting the app for a week or so which is what I normally do is the levels bug that they claim is not a bug. This is one in which myself and some other very good players I know are stuck at lower levels than some very, frankly, stupid friends. You know the ones, the ones who always leave open triple word scores, never take advantage of high point letters to make high scores, whose idea of a good word is something like “broom”. How they suddenly woke up one day and got to level 20 and up while we who are killing it all the time are at levels 10-12 is mind numbing. My 75 year old grandma got to level 20 and said she has no idea what that means. Grrrrr. Anyway, done ranting. I’ll give two stars since i obviously still play for now..Version: 13.91.1

Complaint/ReviewI loved WWF2 prior to the most recent changes. It appears the personal part of it is being removed. I enjoyed competing against my friends I’ve been playing with and now the competition level isn’t there....what fun is it with numbers against people you don’t even know. The sport for me is gone. Also, I cannot find people I played with before without searching and searching. It is becoming as if, making it better is making it worse. Also, to play a game pretty much daily throughout the day/night and get a few tokens that don’t even allow you to have a free turn is ridiculously cheap to me and not worthy of the effort put forth. Make it worth while. I’ve been playing Scrabble for a short period of time and the rewards make it a lot of fun and makes you want to play more for those rewards. Also, for people to start a game with you just to “chat” and when you don’t or not the way they want you have to have them drag your numbers down and hold that game hostage until it expires almost two weeks later is a bit long and ahold be addressed to allow the person that declines not be punished by “losing” that game..Version: 14.31.1

I love this game, but......Great game, honestly, it's a great game. I love it and definitely think it was worth the upgraded ad free version. However, I have to caution people against ANY of the in-game purchases. My husband and I both have it. Guess what. He can buy power-ups for SUBSTANTIALLY fewer coins than I can buy them for. He can play the Solo games early for SUBSTANTIALLY fewer coins than I can. And when I ask support WHY? All they can say is that they occasionally try to see what works best. Well, there's no "occasionally" about it. His coins have ALWAYS bought more than my coins will buy. So...though this is a terrific game, be aware that they pick and choose which players get more "bang for their buck" as far as coins are concerned. I feel somewhat manipulated, and will NEVER actually purchase any coins. I will slowly accumulate them in the game, and purchase power-ups slower than my husband because the folks who run the games can pick and choose those who have more "buying" power. Though it's a great game, the inequality they manufacture is kinda frustrating. I do need to add, their tech support has always been helpful. That's an important part of these online games, and they do well with that..Version: 13.20.5

Only fix what is brokenLikes: I really enjoy the game and concept. I like that there are more rewards earned, but find them to be traded at a premium - I realize you want to make a profit, but you could definitely humor frequent players with a better value. Issues: My issues are with the screen design; namely the letter tray at the base of the screen often causes the screen of my iPad to go up with the swiping motion made from moving tiles to the board from the base of the screen. Despite trying not to, it happens repeatedly. The tray is nice at the bottom, but doesn’t work well with Apple’s swiping feature. Secondly, depending on whether you press on the face of the friend or on the line where the game information is recorded, determines whether you start a new game or continue play in the current game. This game option/feature is not ideally executed. I am indifferent to the visual effects of the new game design. Most people aren’t fired up about change, so gamers are skeptical when developers attempt to fix and improve on something not broken. It is generally considered a fail if after adjusting to the updated game or new version, players prefer the prior one. Moral of the story: only fix what is broken. 😊.Version: 10.59.1

Words with FriendsI love to play, but I have some complaints. You have made the weekly challenge too difficult and it’s not worth it. It was nice when it was 7000 or so, but raising it to over 13,000 is over the top. After achieving this goal several times, the rewards are pathetic compared to other events. I no longer care about getting there. When are you going to finish this new dictionary that you have been updating? for years??? You allow words that I can’t find in any other dictionary and ignore words that are real. Why Is Texas allowed but no other state. Why is some obscure town or river in some faraway country ok, but not all rivers in the U.S. or other modern countries. Everybody calls raccoons, coons, except you, as an example of my frustration. Why are French words and other foreign words acceptable, but most Spanish words are not accepted? You started awarding me magnifying glasses a few months ago with no icon to use them. Magically they appeared on my games 2 days ago. I have 99+ that I could have been using. I love the word challenge and the monthly challenge. Also I like the flash challenges..Version: 16.50.8

A good game gone badWords with Friends is a fun game. I’ve had various versions of it since it first came out. It has a fun easy interface to use and is very intuitive. I have a lot of friends that I play with and often have at least half a dozen games going at once. The stats and rankings and records of games is cool too. My biggest complaint and the reason I rate it low is all the gewgaws, side games and challenges. I find them very annoying and distracting. They pop up after every move, telling you you’ve earned coins and challenges and seeds. It’s a pain to even open the app sometimes because you’re hit with them right away. Plus, I can’t prove it but it seems like, if you’re on a streak you start getting really bad letters. I’ve taken multiple screenshots where I’ve had nothing but sets of 2 or 3 vowels. It feels like the are pushing you to use one of the various power ups because that only started happening to me when I got the latest version of the game. Like I said I’ve been playing this game since 2010. If there were a way to turn off all the challenges and events and mystery box crap this app would get a much higher rating from me. As it is now, I only remain because I like to play and its very popular with my friends. It’s like facebook that way..Version: 11.0.1

Players & ADsI’ve only been playing about a month. Approx 80% of the men almost immediately ask to chat “elsewhere” & worse. Wish they’d leave & go to Tinder! When I refuse they often stop playing & ruin the match. I’m Already to the point where I sigh & think “here we go AGAIN, another one!”. Oh but watch out ladies for the women too. Have had to end games & block a couple of them too because after a few plays they start soliciting something like a bitcoin business. I swear I spend more time typing back to these people setting them straight than playing the game! But it doesn’t end there... after EVERY single play I make I’m sent to an AD that I’m stuck in for up to 30+ seconds.. spoils the flow of the game. But hey, for a price $$$ you can get rid of the ADs for 30days. Ugh. Finally, if playing & want to break away, would be nice if people had a bit of consideration & wrote “heya, hopping off now, back later “ or SOMEthing, instead of leaving me sitting there waiting for them to make a play! Good grief. Only sticking around for the rare times I get a good game going. For now. Until something changes they won’t be getting an in-APP purchase from me..Version: 15.60.2

Good game but bugs are costly and weird strangersThe game in itself is good. I’ve been playing it for almost 10 years in and off. However, I recommend you don’t spend money on it. I recently bought the rewards pass and have missed out on getting a lot of the rewards because the app keeps bugging out and removing the pass altogether. I tried to contact support, did what they told me, and still got no fix or refund. There are a lot of glitches that cause you to have to spend coins twice. Through several updates, the issue has not been resolved. I spent money on the game because I love it but it’s just not worth the bugs. On top of that, there’s a scam issue when you play with male strangers. There are hundreds of fake profiles run by a bot. They try to talk to you excessively, hit on you, etc. They draw you in and later on ask for money. I only know all of that because I’ve read about it, but at first I had no idea why I was being hit on by creepy strange men. I don’t mind playing games with random users but there has to be some way WWF can weed out the bots.... the bots immediately resign games if you don’t continue chatting with them because they know they won’t get any scam money. Zynga pleeeeaaaassssseeeee fix these issues. They’re killing an otherwise great game..Version: 15.60.2

Fun game but way too many technical glitches!For the most part this is a fun game to play with your friends to pass he time, take a break, waiting at the doctors office but the adds are horrific; waiting 30-60 on between each move while playing an add is ridiculous; some just stop so you have to get out of the app and back in. If you did opt in the one ONLY time the no adds was offered with original app for 1.99 you are SOL. It should have offered with the real ease of WW2. WW2, although in Beta mode needs to stay there for a while as it still freezes when the host is talking (which by the way they do way toooooo much) and at times you have missed the question all together... so guess what? You’re done. I just do it for fun... not 2.20! People make comments on iG and FB all the time which go unanswered. Example.... 7 Feb 2019 “down for maintenance.” It has yet to be posted on IG but on FB ppl wanna an approximate time for the outage. Common courtesy you give your users an estimated time; even if you over estimate. I gave 3 stars because I don’t have a lot of problems other ppl have. And the weekly goals are INSANE. I just think you can do a better job communicating with your users. The only communication I’ve seen is for positive feedback. Thanks.Version: 12.00.2

Honestly not the bestIt has a lot of problems. There are weird challenges that you HAVE to participate in no matter what. Once, I decided to start a practice game and it glitched out so now I have no way of accessing it which means I can’t resign to fix the problem and I can’t make a new practice game either. Another time, I decided to play a game with a random person and for some reason, they added them to my friends list. But I didn’t search for their user name. I used the create game and pressed smart match. This would theoretically be in my game list, and I would have one match with them, and never see them again. There is no way to fix this that I know of. That’s another thing. It is very difficult to navigate the app, and you often can’t remember how to get to a certain place. Things can be glitchy at times, and in general, the app is missing a lot of thing that should be accessible through settings in the app. I’m sorry if this review was hard to read, I wrote it in five minutes and there is probably tons of mistakes. tl;dr Don’t get the app unless you really really need too. It really needs to be worked on. I don’t use the app any more, and don’t want to any time soon. Save your self time, confusion, and possibly anger, by not downloading it..Version: 14.01.1

New Fast Games and Solo ChallengeI normally do quite well in solo challenge. It used to be my favorite game in Words with Friends. However,The last two times I’ve gotten to the last character to play to end the challenge for the last box, it’s cost all the coins I’ve earned from watching ads before I even start. When I buy the swap, I get even worse letters than I had before. One particular game with “Gaia” has been the worst. Gaia has all the best letters each hand, and even if I use my coins to swap each hand, I get the same letters I just had or worse! Once I got all vowels! I’ve played her at least 7 times and lost every game! And the same happens with the other challenges. Plus, they play words I’ve never heard of, and I taught English at the college level and high school levels. The Fast Game I play is the one where you play one other player in 45(?) seconds each play. If the other player doesn’t play, then you sit in “WAITING” mode forever! If you choose to cancel out of the game after waiting several minutes, you forfeit your points, and lose the game even though the other player has no points! Ugh! I’ve been playing this game since it came out, and I enjoy these challenges more than the regular games with friends. I still enjoy playing with “friends,” and will continue to play, but I’m rather annoyed by the solo challenge and the fast play..Version: 16.50.8

New version limits extrasWhile there are some good things about the new version of the game, I’ve noticed after a couple weeks of using it that it’s much harder to get coins, which can then be used to use additional features like hindsight, etc. In the old version of the game the daily bonus was 15 coins, which allowed for at least one “extra” feature to be purchased. The new daily gift is usually only 2 coins—not even enough to buy one hindsight. So since this new version has been released I’ve noticed I have way fewer opportunities to use the extra features like hindsight, which I miss. While I do play this game pretty much daily, I often don’t play enough in a week to complete the challenge, which provides 100 coin bonus. Also, the new solo challenge is fun, but once you complete the challenge you can no longer play until the next solo challenge is released, which I hope is changed. Why not let the player rematch with the computer challengers even after they’ve beaten them once? But in general the game is really fun and I’m glad the developers are working to improve it all the time..Version: 9.93.1

I have been playing words with friends years!I believe I started playing in 2010 so I have been playing for a decade. If I am wrong it would be only by a year. First 8 years I played everyday multiple times a day. It was nothing for me to have 40 games going at a time. I love playing WWF but I wish that some of the power ups were able to be chosen not just won or given. There are TWO I so rarely use that I have +99 in both. I do find the swap feature and play very helpful when my letter pile is so bad I can’t make any word. It would be great if we could chose to move over some of the hindsight and the letter placement option piles. Even if it were to cost 20 of these to get 5 of the swap and play power ups. I also find some of the added features for play kinda annoying but I understand that they are needed to keep things going and interest high. My interest lies with the original game features and playing the word master. Given all the new features I still play and will continue to do so. I do not play the volume I used to but that is because I am heavily involved in designing mandalas and similar designs for people to color. I keep my games going so that I can keep my, one of the early to original players position. I will always play this game however my points and positions are really reduced this game provides mental stimulation and vocabulary growth. Thanks for keeping it going all these years and into the future..Version: 15.40.2

Greedy. Now, they’re censoring private conversations!I’ve been playing this game with ONE friend for the last 11 years. It started out great and was a ton of fun until the last year. They’ve initiated lots of not very user friendly changes, reduced the amount of coins etc one can win, raised weekly goals to such high levels it becomes work to achieve them. Haven’t fixed an issue that lets you delete old Practice games for over 6 months. Raised the “price” to purchase PowerUps. Raised the “price” to play Solo Challenge if you don’t want to wait hours for the next game. And, the kicker, they are monitoring/censoring PRIVATE conversations! I’m not talking about censoring swear words - although that’s bad enough, but as an example, today they censored the word concerning!! Seriously! It showed up as c*ncerning in the convo box! First, they absolutely should NOT be monitoring private conversations that nobody else can see (or shouldn’t see), but censoring words like “concerning”? There Big Brother tactics aren’t just too creepy! I’m waiting for a response to my complaints - it will be generic and sent from a bot - before cancelling. But, if this doesn’t change, or there response is less than satisfactory, I have zero issue canceling..Version: 14.80.5

You are punished for buying CoinsNot sure what the developers are thinking when they make a poor move like this......As you all know, everyday you earn free coins throughout the game which allows you to ‘buy’ certain playing tools for a more strategic game. You can either collect a daily allotment or watch an advertisement for which you receive 3 coins. You can also buy coins since it can take awhile to earn coins. For awhile I played the games with the earned coins cause I didn’t want to spend money on coins. I got addicted to having coins and when I ran out I spent $20 to buy a bunch of them. I have done this multiple times. I’ve never spent money inside any other app. And what did Words developers decide was a smart idea? When you now buy coins they eliminate your ability to earn coins by watching an advertisement! The chance to earn was what got me to finally buy coins in the first place!! My sister refuses to buy anything from the app in response to this ridiculous move. I just joined her, since my recent purchase earned me the inability to earn coins by watching advertisements. I feel like they slapped my hand for giving them my money. Well guess what....? The game itself is great but the 3 stars is for that ridiculous move..Version: 15.91.0

Step in the WRONG directionThis new version is so ugly. With the previous version I started getting dropped games even after I would make my move. Then read online that the fix was to delete and reinstall the app. Upon looking at for it in the App Store, now it's called Words With Friends 2? First of all, what a stupid name to change it to. But I reinstalled it and now I see my dropped games, but the look, colors, the size of everything is so obnoxious. Whoever redesigned the UI needs to go back to middle school. Actually, that's what it looks like; it looks like an obnoxious elementary crappy textbook with stuff all bright and obnoxiously big. Anyway, wish the developers gave an option to view stuff zoomed out or in a classic mode; where I used to be able to see like 7 games on the screen, now I see like two or maybe three and then have to scroll. Unnecessary. And totally ugly UI. And also, stuff like giving me a super light blue (almost white) background and then putting white text on top of that??? Who thought that would be a good design choice idea, that's terrible layout and design; I could barely read it. But finally when I did read it, it was to say that my app is ad-free. Ad-free or not it looks like crap and it's a step in the WRONG direction. Make things simple-looking and easy to read, not obnoxious and bloated. This update offers ZERO improvement to the enjoyment of the game..Version: 10.26.1

Love to Play WWFI have been playing this game for many years and enjoy it immensely. I do have a bone to pick, however, with the latest change, which is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. The change that I am unhappy with concerns the Daily Word Play. It used to be very easy to access Daily Word Play as it was displayed in more than one area of the game board. The previous Points Goal for Daily Word Play was 167, and you had 4 tries to get to that score and when you did not reach it in 4 tries you could watch a video for 4 additional tries. Once you reached 167 points you received a Mystery Box. I was fine with watching a short ad for the 4 additional tries, and I always did so to complete the 167 point goal. Now the goal is 930 for a Mystery Box with unlimited tries and no ads, and the only way to access it is through the Goals box. The issue is if you want to stop before 930 points (because that score takes a bit of time to achieve) and go back to Daily Word Play later, there is no longer a way to access it again. Please fix this issue, as I am sure that other players like to put down the game and go back to Daily Word Play later when they are not playing other opponents..Version: 15.80.4

ScammersI love the App but I found there are men trying to pick up women and more likely scam them for money. But last week I had a new type of scammer. It was a lady who said she just moved and wanted to make new friends. I decided to chat with her and she asked if we could chat on Google Hangouts. I am not connected to that form of social media so I told her I was on Instagram. It just got weirder and weirder. She said she knew Ellen and if I would like to appear on her show. I asked a few more questions to see where she was going with this and she actually had pictures of her with Ellen. She said she could raise 5000 for my transportation. I said I wasn’t traveling now because of the virus. The next day she asked for my SS number, Address, Email, and phone number. She was persistent and her flow of conversation would change calling me Miss and friend etc. I told her I don’t give out my SS number and blocked her on Instagram and WWF. I would have never thought this type of scam would happen on WWF so just a word of warning. I told her and the men who have appeared that I am 75 years old so that would turn some of them off! I now hope that my age would give me some wisdom..Version: 14.80.5

New update is lameI have been a WWF fanatic for several years. I loved the game. When the WWF2 app came out, I downloaded it and hated everything about it. The it looks like the Scrabble app (which I have never liked). The coins option is stupid, there is nothing worthwhile to purchase with them. I deleted it within a day or two, but the old app kept trying to force the new app on me! I opened my game this week only to find that it has been changed into WWF2. I hate it. It pushes playing one on one with the game, it’s play back is ridiculous, not even slightly a challenge. It forced the one on one on me so many times, I played it in the hopes that it will stop forcing it on me. The new graphics are confusing, too much garbage on the screen. I just want to play scrabble with my friends. I don’t need flashy garbage. I can’t find my games half the time. When I won a game, I chose the option to play them again at the end of the game. I started the new challenge, and it tried to force me to start another one again with the same person. Not sure how much longer I will be playing this app anymore. You’ve ruined it. No longer about challenging your mind and your friends and now is all about flashy graphics, stupid ads, and worthless coins that buy you nothing of value. Epic failure on Zynga. Give us back the OG WWF!!!!.Version: 11.60.5

Great Game for kids over the age of 8!This game is really good, the only thing I’m having trouble with the moment, is practice mode. It keeps on saying you’ve reached the maximum number of games, finish to play more. I press on my game but it keeps saying “Oops, something went wrong!” I am a 9 year old and I think this game is good for the brain because it helps with your reading and knowledge. I also don’t like the fact the anonymous people are wondering if you want to play with them (STRANGER DANGER alert!) So why can’t Zynga make an update that only with people that are your friends you can only play with. When I was about 5, I downloaded the first Words with Friends and I played with people I didn’t know. They were sending me weird messages that gave me a suspicious feeling. Also, is there ever gonna be a Words With Friends 3?.Version: 13.10.4

Excellent game... 1 issue thoughEverything about this game is great! Except the ads. I’ve seen complaints about them in the reviews many times, there are plenty of us happy to pay a once off fee to get rid of the ads. I have also seen the response from the developers to this as wanting to keep the game free for everyone. Very charitable... Obviously you would make more money regularly from ongoing ad revenue than people paying a couple of bucks as a once off fee, and I can understand that is good business, even if I don't like it as a user. What I have a big problem with is that there appears to be some ad in your line up that is nothing but a black screen. And it doesn’t go away! It doesn’t time out and take me back to the game, I’ve let it sit there for several minutes several times and ultimately I have to switch my entire phone off and back on again to get back into the game. It drives me crazy and is a negative user experience. I’ve run the update this week and sadly it didn’t fix it at all. If you insist on keeping the ads in place despite repeated requests a from long time users let us pay to remove them can you at least make sure they don’t bring the game to a screaming halt. Thanks.Version: 10.65.1

New App is horrible and too noisyI have been a wwf player for a long time, bought the ad free version, bought the data packs etc...i.e. Your target customer....and your new WWF2 stinks. It's too noisy, too many pop ups, too many prizes in the way of the game, it's hard to want to play and too easy now with all the cheats. Way to go to ruin the game. I played the old version as long as I could but have been force to upgrade, and playing the new one for a few months to give it a chance....but it is just a far inferior version to the original. I am not alone either....all my regular opponents hate it too. In fact there is now less chance of me wanting to spend more on the app as I am barely on it. Make the noise optional in settings, I simply don't care about coins or buying cheats and don't want to see these and they are turning me away from the game and from spending real cash on better game play, not cheats. Nor do I want to play against BOT's....they aren't the same as a real player who challenges you..Version: 10.65.1

Good concept but lots of negativesI’ve been playing this game for years but it is filled with unfair aspects. If you play with friends, it’s fine, apart from the intrusive and noisy ads that are almost impossible to stop without shutting the app down. The solo games are a joke. So-called “easy” levels are difficult to win in later updates. Every time I swap a letter (or letters) I receive the same ones back, especially with vowels, even when there are plenty of tiles available. Don’t bother with solo games. They’re rigged! As well, The rewards are insulting. They used to be great but now they are terrible - three coins a day with equally pathetic rewards for challenges. With all the terrible advertising, it would be better to award players with incentives and rewards that reflect the intelligence needed to play this game. It’s not Candy Crush!!!.Version: 11.91

Once was good, now it’s dreadfulUsed this for years, but tempted to delete altogether now because recent updates have made it much much slower to run, because of the stupid “rewards” for every single thing you do. If I was really in need of a prize for making a two letter word, do you think I should be in charge of an iPad at all? Can’t disable the ludicrous graphics buzzing with those things. They interrupt your game, take far too long to disappear and let you go to the next game, often cause white-screen crashes, and now appear to be a monumental battery power drain. A shame it went from a decent word game to this mess. Presumably the developers think they have to justify their job by adding more and more bloatware features, when instead they should have left it alone and done something else..Version: 12.11.1

No no noThere are several things I don’t like. - you need to be precise where you tap to open the store otherwise you open your own profile. The two are not clearly defined separate but are located in the top bar. - the big blue plus sign to add a game is too big and gets in the way when scrolling - the new sounds are annoying random notes. I didn’t mind the droplet sounds in previous version but omg the new sounds are horrible. I turned off sounds immediately but feel denied that satisfying sound (which hasn’t changed) when the word strength is high. - the old board had shadow contrast that created 3D depth to the board. It is pale now and lacks that depth. I don’t like it. It looks dull and kind of cheap. And while I’m here, a comment in WWF challenges. The weekly challenge is unfair. If you play all the time it becomes unattainable. Other players earn the same badge but are required to earn a whole lot less points to get it. The only way to reduce your own requirements is to park your game for weeks until the requirement drops to a reasonable level again. That is defeating. Why can’t you vary it? Make some badges hard and some easy but the same for everyone. That way there are bragging rights for those who achieve by working hard for the hard badges..Version: 9.71.2

Words with adsWords with friends is a great version of scrabble with enough letters to give players a chance to make plenty of words each game. Players can earn free power ups, like letter swapping without losing a turn. There are optional hints to make it more enjoyable along with pretty tile styles and a chat box if you are that way inclined. What I don’t like is that there is no one off payment for the ap. It’s expensive compared to most Aps and paying only lasts a month, before you have to renew. I play the free version and each time I play a turn an ad has to be watched for about ten seconds. Sometimes the same ad over and over..Version: 13.50.2

Ruining the gameTwo issues are ruining this game for me. 1. The algorithm throws up multiple vowels more often than could be attributed to chance. I expect this is intended to force me to purchase letter swaps. Other players are also reporting this as a problem. Game developers note- I would rather lose than buy swaps. 2. There are an increasing number of people who cheat. Playing random people who frequently play 7 letter novel words which score highly right in the middle of a normal game. Can't words detect such players and ban them? Cheats note- I will stop playing with you immediately. 3. Funny thing is that the vowel problem has all but disappeared since I wrote this review. Coincidence? Stand by. I'm keeping statistics. 4. Once the number of coins you have falls below a level where you can buy swaps you then have an excess of vowels. Coincidence? I think not..Version: 10.90.3

AwfulI got a new phone recently and have discovered I can no longer download WWF, which I had paid a premium for to have no ads. I have been forced to download WWF2, which is essentially unplayable due to the constant ads which take up the whole screen with a tiny little cross that is almost impossible to hit without opening a web page about the product being advertised. I have been unable to login and get my old details back such as my stats, which I am not too bothered about but some people might be. Such a shame, I absolutely loved playing WWF and it has been ruined for me now. I’ll have to see if my friends will move to the Scrabble app with me!.Version: 9.93.1

If you are going to show ads make sure they don’t affect gameplayI love this app, however, the ads freeze the app and you can’t close them on a regular basis, this is becoming a constant and consistent problem. I understand the need for advertisers to provide revenue for your company, however spending a bit of the money in testing and removing bugs from the ads would mean a much better experience for the end user. It’s very disappointing. I continually have to turn my device off and on to reset the game, meaning in the end I can’t be bothered playing and move on to another game app without issues..Version: 13.62.1

Problem with freezing.I have played Words with Friends for many years without too much of a problem. Since buying a new IPad I have had a lot of trouble with the game freezing. I rang Apple Support and they say the problem is with the App. I deleted the App and installed it again but it is still a problem. It works ok if I keep playing WORDS but if I go on to something else and come back to Words it freezes and I have to turn my IPad off and restart it again. It is spoiling the pleasure of playing the game. What can I do to fix this problem?.Version: 15.00.6

I loved this game BUT now am even more fed up than the last time I commentedIf I wasn't playing with a lifelong friend overseas I'd ditch this once-wonderful game completely. Why can't some of these unsolicited "improvements" be made optional, like it no longer asking if I really want to send a word and so doesn't allow me time to really think about what I mean to send. Other hassles it's never fixed is still allowing words that it has no definition for, including a lot of ludicrous slang, using suspect spellings of others and not allowing perfectly good words for no imaginable reason. And more... I'm not interested in constantly finding a new person to play with or clever (not) new challenges, I just want to wind down and play a relaxing game with a friend I've known for ages, not get wound up/over-excited by seeing who on the planet I can beat. I'm just saying there needs to be a place for our kind of player, too..Version: 14.80.5

Bring back truly random matchesSince WWF2 changed how you find random opponents, it has turned into an effort to avoid awkward exchanges with people who ultimately want your phone number. Women I know find this format particularly limiting as you can’t ask for a random opponent without that person thinking you “chose” them and therefore are attracted to them or something (there’s no way to know if the person asked for a random match or whether they picked you on purpose based on your photo). I just don’t use that feature anymore, and only play with people I know. It’s a shame because I used to love the lucky dip of finding someone new to play without them thinking they can hit on you. It’s made the app sleazier, I’m afraid..Version: 13.60.4

Unfortunately Getting WorseFor a game that was already somewhat annoying to use from a UX perspective, it’s progressively getting worse. Having to scroll past ads for other games to actually play the game is kind of admitting that you’ve given up trying to make it better in favour of your newer titles. The latest changes only add to the confusion of what was once a great game that, after losing some popularity, didn’t pay homage to the players who just wanted to play “words with friends”, and instead tried to lead them down the path of a game that seemingly has no idea where it’s going or the ability to convey this to the end user. As an app developer myself I know the feeling of receiving a bad review, so I hope this is received in the way it was intended, as honest feedback from a real user hoping to stem the flow of questionable decision making from a roadmap perspective..Version: 15.40.2

Monitising gone nuts and now with soundsI have liked this game for some time having reached level 15 and watched the free game slowly get more annoying with ads but we may have reached my cutoff. Of course app developers need to be able to make a buck and even the ridiculously long ads between games were tolerable but now we have moved to casino game ads that have slot machine sounds even when the iphone is switched to silent. The game is silent and not anti social as I play. Well I am on a screen ignoring others in the room, so still anti social. But now in an element of wisdom ads can bypass sound settings that I have selected for the environment that I am in to create slot machine sounds right there in front of the people in the meeting, the cinema or at the dinner table. Who eats at the dinner table any more but you get my point..Version: 13.91.1

Too many extrasI have played this game for several years now but I am now on the verge of deleting it. It has become so overloaded with so many extras, that it’s annoying to play. I love playing WWF with my friends, not with the system or total strangers. I am not a child and I am not interested in badges, goals, rewards, stickers or achievements or winning coins for “cheats”. I’m sure there are some folk out there that love these extras, but I’m not one of them. If the reviews are anything to go by, I’m not alone in my opinion. I would request that the developers please include the option in settings, that would allow one to disable any or all the extras and just leave us with the bare bones version that allows one to play without all the embellishments. Thank you..Version: 15.50.1

Game keeps freezingAfter the new update of words my game keeps freezing if I chat my games freeze I need to turn phone off to get to play my games . I’m not happy if this keeps happening I will delete words after playing it so many years . It not just me my other words friends it happening to them too 😡now while I’m playing commercials come up and some get stuck and block my game , I’m not enjoying playing words if this keeps happening every time I need to shut my phone off to re boot it and it’s always happens on the same commercial , this needs to be fixed and it’s not only on my game a few of my friends are also having the same problem , how can you enjoy the game if I need to shut phone off every time I want to play a game , ???.Version: 15.20.4

Words With Friends 2I have played Words for a long time but it’s been ruined by all the American men that use it like a dating site. They don’t want to play the game they just want to grill you for personal information. Young people play this game not just adults and it leaves them open to exploitation not to mention the elderly who are constantly grilled for personal information. It’s nice being able to comment on a game but it’s not nice having to chat after every play in order not to offend the other player. It also ruins the scores because if you don’t respond and chat they just resign!.Version: 12.32.1

Recent update and other thingsChat: rather than mute, I would rather see a return to the old style where chat only applied to each game itself. I have several friends who play multiple games with me. If one makes a comment about a move etc. then it means that you have to go through your games to find the move they are talking about. Maybe a numbering system when multiple games are played. Then it might be clearer. other things: I don’t want to participate in the coloured tiles, so maybe for those like me, having a choice of coins or swaps etc. instead in rewards, would be welcomed. I also think that the coin rewards are too measly. It would not cost you anything to provide more. Why not have levels of play. However, if you already do have levels based on average scores, then I feel there is an error there. I have the same average as many of my opponents despite winning hundreds more games. My average never seems to improve. My word score is high (mostly over 30] and I have improved over the years but my average stays the same, as it does with my friends too..Version: 12.10.3

Good game ruined by misguided theories of engagementDear Zynga, a word game is not Candy Crush. Intentionally cluttered busy screens & schizophrenic rewards & challenges pitching themselves into your face run contrary to your (impersonal) cut and paste responses below stating your primary interest as "streamlining" the players experience. Users (including myself) supporting you by paying for ad-free service only to have that disappear in the update is just cold. Read your audience, stop trying to do everything at once in one app, remember why users got behind WWF in the first place (the clue is in the title), put down the generic strategy book on user engagement, gamifying every aspect of the experience and making it as noisy as possible, stop responding to complaints with insincere cookie cutter responses or wait for a smarter developer to respect and steal your audience. Or you know, keep your slot machine spinning, pull in that ad revenue and make all the money in the meantime. Do not recommend this game. Cue generic response in 3, 2, 1....Version: 10.85.1

Hate The AdsLove Words With Friends and have played through many updates. Bringing in ads has definitely been a backward step for me. Cheeky strategies such as changing location of the close x each ad is just awful and frankly rude. Most ads have a poker machine feel that makes me cringe. The videos are hideous and repetitive and I shut the app between every go to turn them off. That is a LOT of closing and re-opening in every session of play. Just delays play and annoys me. All recent changes have been Downgrades to my mind. If the developers need to court advertising to make dollars, where is the option to buy an ad free app? Is the plan to make us hate it so much that an ad free version will be snapped up?? Yes, I still play. Essential product is too good not to. But first developer to give an ad free version and I will be convincing my Friends to swap with me!!.Version: 9.93.1

Please fixCan be a very glitchy game I have enjoyed the game in past but now it frustrates me I started a solo game and had four with 3 lots of 2 stars and 1 lot of 3 stars and I jumped out and when I jumped back in the same event was still on but I start it over again it has a habit of not allowing you play certain tiles aswell and when it does allow you to play them they don’t alway land where you put them and can’t just chat with support through the app but besides all this I found it to be a very enjoyable game so my rating is based on the fact I do enjoy the game.Version: 12.31.1

Long time userI have been playing WWF for a very long time and really enjoy the game i have the bought version so do not have the pop up adds. There is one thing that really annoys me though, this never used to happen before an update some time ago. I am wondering if anybody else finds this annoying. Nearly every time i try to place a tile, dragging it into place closes the game. Swiping up from the bottom shows you all apps you have open. So annoying it puts me off the game a bit. Could you reposition the letters in the rack somewhere else on the page please..Version: 10.90.3

AdsWhile I do understand that ads are necessary for a free game and you can pay to have them removed , could you please use ads that can be exited out of. In the last week I have had the same ad after every turn ( which is fine ) but once the ad is finished it has no exit button to return to the game, I end up having to completely close the app and restart the game after every turn I make. I love this game and I have many opponents who I really enjoy challenging but these stupid non exiting ads are going to make me not want to play it anymore. P.S. believe me if I could afford to pay the fee to remove the ads I would but my family life expenses do not allow..Version: 12.20.3

Great? If You Say So...I’ve been playing WWF for at least a decade, and written several favourable reviews. However, the longer I play it, the more unwanted “bells and whistles” are added, which totally spoil the game for me. After all, it’s basically Scrabble, and that’s all I wish to play. What’s finally driven me to write yet another review is the prize tier. I don’t use the Coins and as far as I know I can’t swap them or give them away, and one can only have a maximum of 1500 Coins amassed. Well, I’ve had 1500 of those pests for... years. Yet, every day, at least once a day, I’m forced to tap “Great!” when I go up another tier, and “collect” another 6 or 8 coins which I don’t get even if I wanted them; if it were allowed I’d have at least 5000 of them. It’s bad enough that I’m accepting a “prize” I don’t want and can’t have, but the straw that’s broken this camel’s back is actually having to tap “GREAT!!” to exit the screen. It’s NOT great, it’s not even ok. It’s annoying, and has reduced my enjoyment of WWF so much that I’m beginning to understand why so many of my friends no longer play it..Version: 16.12.1

Still problematicI’ve been playing WWF for years, and the app still has problems it’s always had. If I play all the games (keep hitting Next Game til there is no more Next Game) then minimise the app, only to find a number on the app icon indicating there’s a game or two to play. Surely this bug can be fixed? Other problems aren’t so much bugs as obvious options WWF could include. Why can’t I play a game using one of the various dictionaries one can download to an iPhone? I can play using some bogus US ‘games dictionary’ that has plenty of non-words, and plenty of words that are valid (to use in the game) but have no listed meaning. I can choose British English - which is a different set of valid words, but has no listed meanings. But I can’t choose from various dictionaries that a freely available to other iphone apps. Why are the various awards and badges not something I can opt not to see. I do not take part in any way, I don’t take any notice, yet increasingly, with each iteration of the app, I have to click on the occasional screen to accept some badge and choose “great” or “thanks” or whatever, just to make the next move. One last suggestion, for now: a choice of skins would be great. The colour scheme this game has is as garish (though not as unreadable) as the official Scrabble™ app - could we please have some choice around the colours of tiles etc? thanks.Version: 9.93.1

An irritating but addictive gameMy biggest complaint is that allowable words can be almost anything you want to make up yet everyday words are disallowed. I have lost count of the number of “words” I have checked and got the message “..... is an allowable word in WWF but sorry we don’t have a definition for it just yet”. Can a word be a word if it doesn’t have a definition? The new version uses even more battery life than the old one did, which was a high user. To try to reduce usage I tried to switch off all notifications but that didn’t help as the notifications are still happening. I like being able to swap without missing a turn but it costs too many “coins”. I miss not being able to look back over all the moves in a game. I think that should be restored and some of the other gimmicks removed..Version: 9.92

Recent update - why ditch weekly challenge?Have played since 2011 so have seen a lot of updates. I always hold off as long as possible, but alas eventually it forces me to update. So the latest update once again makes changes that I can’t fathom why?! I play daily to attempt to collect the weekly challenge badge and always track my progress on the progress bar, but they seem to have taken this challenge/event away completely? PLEASE bring back the weekly challenge! It is a great and difficult challenge to reach the points goal per week! The other terrible change, the previous version allowed you to collect the reward boxes and click on them all at once whenever you pleased to collect coins etc. PLEASE bring this back! It is an annoyance to have each and every box open automatically mid play! One last suggestion, it would be great to be able to block a player without having to accept the game, clicking on them, and then finding block user function..Version: 16.40.2

Where is the love?!Let’s take a step back and look at this so called rewards system Zynga have implemented. First they decimated the daily reward and now give us two coins a day. They removed the coins for winning a match. Then they increased the price of the power ups by nearly 1000%. On top of that they continue to increase the weekly challenge to impossible levels for the average player. They originally gave us a decent reward system and then took it away under the guise of a fancy new Words 2, to which we basically cajoled into shifting to. The reward system from the previous iteration vanished without any warning. I suggest you ease up the cost of the power ups. Similar to what they used to be. Increase the daily rewards: having to press ‘Great’ to accept 2 coins is quite simply demeaning. And bring back a decent reward for winning a game, perhaps even implement a streak system. Oh, and one last thing. Would somebody in charge of the dictionaries please google ‘DAN definition’. It’s acceptable as UK English and US English. I have literally been trying for years to have this word allowed. There seems to be no clear support for additional real actual words anywhere. You let TURNT and QUO et al. through. Neither of which should be allowed. Seriously though. Please make DAN an acceptable word..Version: 10.50.3

Great game ruined by garishly offensive adsThe brain-exercise and social aspects of this game border on inestimable! Congratulations! HOWEVER, sadly, whilst people who play WWF obviously have a common interest in words, it is evident that they have a level of intelligence that deserves better than any of the full-screen ads or, in fact, any ads at all. There are few advertised products that would interest your clientele (who just want to play the game!), all of whom do not want to spend their time and that of the battery of their devices waiting until they can click it off. To add recent insult to injury, after playing a move, I regularly experience a black screen with no ad, just a centre timer icon that uses up more than 20 seconds before my irritated tapping on the screen brings it all back to game life. Several attempts at deleting and re-downloading the app have not eradicated the problem. I am unsure of the revenue that these god-awful ads raise, but I am sure that every one of your clientele would prefer to pay initially for the app, even with perhaps an annual feeI for continuing “club membership”. I, for one, am looking at changing to another Scrabble app with no ads, for which I am happy to pay. Please note that the rating is for the app only..Version: 10.59.1

Great game once you learn a bitI now play this regularly. Found it hard to understand early on, and there’s no simple guide to how to make it work... it would have been much easier if there had been. A friend finally clued me in, which was helpful. Worst things are the ads, and the developer wants quite outrageous $$ to turn them off... and then only for a very limited time period! Presumably they earn more from running ads than by players paying... It also freezes quite often on my iPad, but I’ve figured out a way to get over that without having to restart my device..Version: 15.50.1

Love to play but...The ads are ridiculous. Targeted to morons. Scammers who have fake profiles. I’ve been playing 9 years or more so it’s easy to spot them but feel sorry for vulnerable players who get taken in by the “...but you’re SO beautiful...” lines. The goals & rewards disappeared this week. “Just tweaking” your goals, it’s said for days...shows me anywhere between 2-22 hours, and they’ll be ready. Regardless of when I check back it’s still 2-22 hours. The game itself is great, when you get to play with someone who’s into playing a good game. But if those blokes start talking about their heartache and your marital status - ditch ‘Em quick. Fix the “goals” bug and you’ll get four stars from me. Fix the super-long, super-lame & super frequent ads and you’d get five..Version: 15.00.6

CheatsComputers opponents are able to literally make up words that Do NOT exist, if you try and use the same words it says Unacceptable Word, so it is only good to play against another Human. However you need to play the challenges to gain coins and badges etc. Power Ups are very expensive and not worth the price. Too many adds and the asking price is utterly ridiculous and should jot cost $14/month to play when the game allows cheating which encourages you to spend money. If the computer opponents were actually using real words it would be a much better game. Also words that do exist both in English UK and English US are not always allowed to be played so there is far too many discrepancies to put any money towards this app, the makers have certainly found a way to make alot of money while ripping their consumers out of hard earned money and time..Version: 11.0.1

I love playing but cannot report abuseI absolutely love the game great for your mind. Meet new friends around the world. I have been playing for about 4 to 6 years. BUT BE AWARE they allow scammers that try to scam women. Just one scammer alone uses number of different identities. Always these guys are new to word and widow with at least one child, works away from home They ask for itune card, money or for u to accept a parcel. They ask to talk on hangout or Whatsapp. I have tried to report to Word these guys so they could block them. I have led them on to see if they r scammers. I have been unable to report to Word, so they could monitor new people. The only line to do so is abuse p. That I found is deleted. So womem be careful. Don't fall for these guys charms. One told me yesterday on hangout so many of u do and u give so much money. WORD FOR FRIENDS turn on your abuse line and block when u r informed.Version: 11.10.4

Letter SelectionI love WWF2, it has a cool arrangement of bonus points on the board and I got into it to have games with my special lady Stateside. (She hates being beaten; alright I admit it, I do too.) One thing I would like to see happen is for the letter replacements to at least seem more in the control of the players. Instead of automatic replacement, perhaps a pool of letters face down from the players could be displayed and players select from their touch screens. It may not be actual random choices, but hey, it'll beat always getting 3 or 4 U's in one hit! I find it rarely happens in that other game that looks similar, you know the one? Lol..Version: 11.90.3

What has gone wrong??I've been playing WWF for 7 years - love it, but recently words are being accepted that are not valid words, and the description of the accepted word is 'not a valid WWF word' or something to that effect. One example is JE in the USA version. I try to use it and can't but many of my opponents are using it and getting away with it. There are many other words that are not accepted but some players can still use them - what is going on? Hard enough to play against opponents who use seriously obscure words and are probably using a cheat app, without also having to deal with this issue. Can it be fixed?.Version: 12.00.2

Political advertising should be off limits / Terrible DictionaryPOLITICAL ADVERTISING I will be boycotting Words With Friends2 if you continue to run ads for racist right wing politicians. UPDATE In addition to my issues with the dictionary, I’d like to comment on the levels, badges and tile options. These are distractions that are so unnecessary and developed to the interest levels of children. You can’t imagine how uninspiring the notification to join the “funky chicken” something or other really is. I will be turning off notifications now. There are some seriously good players using this app. How about treating us as the adults we are. ORIGINAL REVIEW This is a fun game and generally a nice community of players BUT the dictionary is terrible and this issue has been going on for far too long. Some examples, 1. There are a large number of words that the game accepts but can’t provide a definition, I’m most cases neither can any if the standard accepted dictionaries around the world. 2. It accepts some foreign language words that are not in normal usage in the English language. Your guess is as good as mine as to which ones are acceptable and which aren’t. 3. It accepts some names, not at. Once again without any clear explanation why. It’s time for developers to identify for users the dictionaries supporting this app and to stop the use of words that are not in those dictionaries..Version: 15.30.4

Great game but recentlyI’ve been playing this game for a long time as well as buying the full version for no ads between games, but recently I’ve noticed that the ads for coins option in the shop has been playing ads that don’t register for coins, but register as played so you get to the ad limit without receiving any coins at all. I have contacted Zynga several times regarding this all with the same response: give me extra coins for inconvenience, tell me to check the app is updated (most people on Apple have automatic updates) and to also restart the app. These do not work. While I understand that you can’t control the ads that appear you can control the format of the ads so that they all perform in the same way. It would be great to have this resolved..Version: 15.60.2

ChangesI’ve played this game with great enjoyment for years. Then you changed the set up. I’m lost as to how to do things I did automatically, eg, how to receive prize boxes for achievements, and when I answer a message from a friend, I find I can’t then go straight into our game, but have to come out of it, and go back in again. Very annoying. I don’t mind changes, but they need to benefit the player. The old saying....If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. My latest beef is why have you made it that when I place a tile, the game ‘zooms’ in on that spot...I want to be able to see the entire board, just in case I change my mind as to where I want to play. I repeat my previous phrase...if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Please listen to players, or you will loose them! Unfortunately I’m having further trouble...don’t if it’s my IPad, the signal I’m receiving or the game. When I try to play a letter the key board comes up and blocks half the game. I’m having issues with moving from one game to the next. I know I sound like a ‘serial’ complainant, but honestly, I love the game, have played it since 2013 but at this time, can’t play it at all..Version: 15.80.4

What’s with the adds?I love WWF and I don’t even particularly have an issue with the existence of adds, but this version requiring adds between every word even in single player games is ridiculous. But perhaps the thing that gets me the most is the loudness of said adds. I keep my phone on silent but still if I get an add I have to turn my sounds down to nothing because of how insanely loud the adds are. If I forget before playing they give me a heart attack and then as soon as I go to make a call later I can’t work out why I can’t hear anyone. Surely there could be a mute option. I am considering not using the app because it is just too ouch effort dealing with the frequency and sound of the adds 😞.Version: 14.00.6

Beware of scammersMy only issue with this app is the vast amount of individuals that think it’s okay to use this platform to attempt to scam you. On average of twice every night I will be contacted by people who try to gain a foothold into my personal life by asking stupid questions in the message inbox. In good faith I will always respond if someone writes a message, just tonight when an individual asked me what I did for a living, I responded ‘law enforcement’ lol they quickly blocked me. There should be an easier way to report them. My advice to these scammers is ‘get a real job’ and my advice to other players is ..... they can’t actually spell and you can read their accents in the way they write..Version: 12.32.1

Ads... bet you haven’t heard this beforeI would happily pay $15 once and have ads removed permanently. I also feel most people would agree to this considering the current system. There are way too many ads shoved into this game and expecting people to pay $15 A MONTH is mental. I really do enjoy your game and I’m fine supporting it just like make it reasonable no monthly payments just a one time thing. If nothing happens about this people are gonna start realising they can play other games like scrabble or word chums and get rid of ads right away with one payment. Take this into consideration. If your worried about your money I doubt it would go down it would either stay even or you may even earn more because $15 ONCE is actually affordable..Version: 11.0.1

Song2I really like playing the game with friends. It keeps us in touch with the option to send a message or contact with strangers without pressure. Also like that I have time to get back to the game when there are busy periods when I’m not able to play. And even then I can be prompted or prompt them as the case may be or check previous games & start again as many games with whom I please. Maybe one of the best things is knowing whether a word is possible with the green or red highlight. A long review but was easy to write. My thanks. I actually wrote this review some time ago. And it was all good. Now I have just read another review with which concur on every level. Basically the ads drive me crazy as there’s no quick x to exit it & it uses up precious battery & my time. It is spoiling my experience & I may opt out if this continues. I too wouldn’t mind purchasing the option to be ad-free depending on cost. And there’s no way I will support the ad presented after such an annoyance. I hope I get a reply to my review that gives me hope for this to change. Thx.Version: 10.26.1

Going backwards here!I have played wwf for years, and have loved it. I dislike the new version. It is the slowest app on my ipad to load, keeps changing goals, targets, rewards. Hello ! I want to play words with friends! I am not a team player, competitive , or need to have my back slapped every time I play a word. I just want a reasonably responsive app to allow me to enjoy a good words game. I have tolerated all these annoyances because I have a few regular good friends whom I met on this app. But, I now am being hit with huge annoying ads that take forever to disappear. I am almost over it, and hope to take my friends with me! I paid for an ad free version years ago, only to have them reappear now. I would pay again, but how? Sad to go, but going nonetheless..Version: 15.60.2

Good app generally but....Like other reviewers have been playing for years (since 2011 and my first iPhone). Don’t like the badges and wish I could switch off that function and just “play the game”. Used to it happening across the board but seasonal signals (like snow flakes) just remind me that people in the northern hemisphere never think that those in the souther hemisphere are experiencing high summer....and generally rarely encounter snow even in our winter. Last point: while US colloquialisms are accepted those from other English speaking countries generally aren’t. Understandable given where App was developed, but still irritating when your high scoring word is not recognised and rejected. But I’m still playing the game!.Version: 10.59.1

Good game but hate having to fend off random other players...Have played this game for years. But some aggressive aspects of the app really annoy me. Such as having to actively deselect random other players to play and needing to scroll past and deselect rewards and challenges to get to my games that I want to play! The latest was where somehow a random ‘Chris the camper’ was in a game with me when I don’t recall choosing that! I’ve paid for premium now make it easy to play the people I want to play and allow us to choose these other options as an option rather than having to deselect. It really pees me off :(.Version: 11.0.1

Unfair start to challenges.I’ve noticed lately that you have been late starting challenges, & not adding points accrued from when a new challenge starts, up until you come in late with new challenge. So unfair! In addition, I have complained about a few things that needed your attention, including questions about changing over to Words2, but even though I received an entirety number, you never got back to me. So, even though I have given you 5 stars, it is my hope that you will improve things in the near future! I’m not a fan of those coins etc, either. I don’t use them & they’re so annoying!.Version: 9.93.1

Words with FriendsI am a 64 y/o retired Air Force Officer who has a bit of time to spare. Some dear friends suggested this game to me a few months ago and I have playing it nearly everyday since. When you are stuck just try any mixture of letters as there are so many words that we have never heard of, then often you are able to at least get a word even if low scoring. It is very entertaining and a lot of fun as well as demanding a lot of brain power at times. Which is good for our brain surely. At least try it and I'm sure, like me, you will soon enjoy the giving of your time and skills it requires. You get to meet many people if you like to do that, as you can have as many games open at the same time as you like. You can also send messages to your opponents through the app. You can play with your current friends/contacts or the app will find new players for you and with similar skill levels if you wish. Good luck and happy Word Hunting. Enjo 😉👍🏻.Version: 11.10.4

It's pretty good but...I prefer the layout of the old version but the new version is also very good...I also like the additional challenges included in the game (lightning round and snowman challenge) but one change you could add to the new version is: - I accidentally pressed 'rematch' twice after a game had ended and two games popped up.. I didn't really want the two games.. 😓 so changing that would be nice.. I don't know whether or not it was an error that occurred and it's not something that happens all the time...but I don't want to try it again with someone else.. 😅 But overall, the new version is pretty good 😄👍.Version: 9.93.1

Great game ...... but a feature I’d really be keen on is the ability to limit the time to think about words to play that players get, and if they fail to play a word within the alotted time they forfeit their move. Players should be able to agree before the game on the time that their allowed to think, e.g. 5 minutes after seeing what the other player has played. This feature would really give an advantage to players with large vocabularies over those who simply have lots of time to try words. Another feature worth introducing is a limit on the number of words you’re allowed to submit, e.g. on any given move you can try to submit only three words and after the third unsuccessful submission you also forfeit your move. This, of course, would require switching off any support that tells you whether a wordis playable or not. And again, this would have to be agreed upon by both players before starting a game..Version: 9.93.1
