Don't like the coin system. 3/5
I love playing the crosswords. However, the coin system is messed up. I still haven't received coins for several things. Plus, the amount of coins required for playing extra games, etc. is too high.
Why is costing 20 coins to download daily puzzle 1/5
As soon as my coins are done I am deleting this app. I think it is ridiculous to pay money to download every day to play.
Bad Glitches, Bad Servics 1/5
Have had the same problem as others when it comes to watching videos for coins, you very rarely get the coins for watching the ad.
Recently I earned an achievement that had a reward of 100 coins, how many did I get? You guessed it ZERO! Watching ads and earning achievements gets you no coins... what’s the point in playing? Then after having the issues with the coins and contacting customer service I was given som bogus response, one of which was to delete the game and reinstall. This did nothing. I relayed my findings with customer service and have never had a response from them. 1 star because I can’t give it zero. Booo
Totally frustrated!! 1/5
Coins are incorrect! I just watched 4 videos and was awarded NO coins! I enjoy this game but will be uninstalling it! All other games give credits/coins for logging in daily. Not this game, I refuse to give my info out for the “partners” to continue to call me. I don’t want, nor do I need their products. We should not be held hostage just to play this game.
Sorry, if I could have give. Zero stars I would have! Fix the bugs and maybe we will come back!
Free isn't free 2/5
Well I really enjoy the Crosswords . However, the bonus puzzles that say they are free are not free. Turns out you have to pay for the free puzzles. I don't like that so I won't be playing them again. Otherwise this is a fun way to kill five minutes a day. The free coins have become a real issue. I repeatedly watch ads only to receive no coins. I will NOT buy coins.
Ads have sounds even though phone is silent 1/5
About one in five ads will come through with sound even though phone is on silent this is NOT okay especially if you are in a place where silence is required!!!!
Clues & Answers 2/5
Several times I've been uncomfortable with your choices of clues and answers. You seem to assume all of your players are Christian and attend church, study the bible, and say Christian prayers. Not all prayers end with amen. Many faiths pray. Many people have never read a bible. Today finally pushed me to comment. The words Witch and Crone are not interchangeable. A Crone is one of the 3 stages of womanhood. Maiden, Mother, Crone. Witch has a much more complicated definition. For many of us, Witch is a term for followers of a specific Spiritual path. As a Witch, I felt the need to speak up.
Coins are a Rook 1/5
Read before you use coins. No way to play without losing coins and are busted
Love it, it has issues. 4/5
By Lady Auryn
The options for reveal word, free letters, and see wrong are too close to the keyboard. On several occasions, I've accidentally hit one of those tools when I didn't mean too.
Please fix this in an update.
Coins and Word Repeat 1/5
By Captain Atlas
It was a fun game, but your coins decline everyday, whether you use them or not. I made the mistake of buying a small pack of them to buy a puzzle pack and have essentially wasted my money as they keep declining without me using them. Also. The words in the puzzles often repeat. I’m pretty sure I’ve had the word “ODE” in every puzzle I’ve solved. Probably won’t keep it much longer.
Cheats players 1/5
I have played all the puzzles in a timely manner to get the Veterans Day badge however this system said I was short one game and had x number of hours to play the last game. I had already played ALL of the posted games and scored 3 stars on all. The hours given to play the last game was 2 hours shy of the next puzzle dropping. Combine that with not getting coins for watching videos over and over and I am ready to dump this one
And again this has happened over and over. Since the “badges” don’t confer any points etc it’s not costing the hosts anything. Why can’t it be corrected???
Watch for free “C” is rigged 1/5
Tapping it watching those stupid commercials and no coins added - rigged
With friends? 3/5
The crossword puzzles are pretty good. I like that they aren’t super hard. Overall, pretty achievable.
I don’t get the “with friends” part because, unless I’m missing something, you solve all the puzzles on your own. I guess you’re comparing scores with friends if they happen to have the game.
Getting coins is very iffy 3/5
By Robbie Castleman itunes
I enjoy the crosswords and themes, but one thing needs fixing: “get 250 coins for inviting a friend”. Did that. He started playing and enjoys the game like I do. BUT I AM STILL WAITING FOR MY COINS!
False Advertising!! 1/5
By Sammy Foxtrot
I recently spent $0.99 on coins because the “earn free coins” has not been working and to my surprise when I used my coins to purchase a crossword that said 10 coins, it took 40 coins!!! There was no warning and I will not ever buy coins from you on this or any other game that are the developer. THIS IS FALSE ADVERTISING!
NSFW or kids 1/5
Ads are not regulated. A very graphic porn ad appeared after solving a puzzle.
EDIT: similar to other users, the developer emailed asking for detailed information and a screenshot. the time and date was immediately before i wrote the review. no screenshot because i already deleted the app. it was a woman giving a man oral sex.
Not worth the ads 2/5
SO MANY ADS! You have to watch 60 sec of ads to get enough coins to play more than one game per day. Plus, if you earn extra coins for completing a challenge the game will automatically deduct 20 coins per game for hints, even if the hint features are turned off in the settings. So frustrating!
View videos for coins totally bad 1/5
View videos for free coins is totally messed up 90% of the time it say videos not available. When they do work they don’t give you the coins for watching. If you go to rewatch the same video it comes back and says they aren’t available. Many times the award sequence starts on the day after a day you need to solve so you have to spend hard earned coins to finish because there aren’t enough days left. Everything seems to be designed to get you to use up your coins that you earned so that you have to buy them. NOT!!
You took a good app and made a crap… Not to mention that horrible tutorial… I immediately deleted it and will look for a different crossword app
Coins glitch 1/5
Many times I complete the achievements and then I never get the coins I’m supposed to be rewarded with. Deleting this app.
Pornographic malware 1/5
This is the only game I have ever played on my phone that had pop up ad of extensive pornography. I am very appalled and disappointed. I have uninstalled the game and don’t intend to ever install again. Considering I’ve played words with friends for years, saying that I’m disappointed is an understatement.
Syncing doesn't work 3/5
Puzzles the same, nothing new. Told that if you do this and this you will get coins and all your old puzzles will sync for more coins. Went through the whole process since you can't play the old game and said the sync was complete, nothing on my calendar and no extra coins. Of course then they want you to play the older puzzles and use 10 coins per puzzle. Not happening!
So so 3/5
It's ok. Think it's pretty fun
Fun Ad 4/5
Love this app!
Porn videos pop up while doing crossword! 1/5
Do not download or use app unless you are ok with seeing a pornographic video pop up ad while playing a crossword game. I was shocked. What if I were a minor, or in a public setting, at work, with children, etc. I did not download an adult game. Porn videos should not play during a crossword game. See other reviews and issue has not been addressed. Deleted app. Unacceptable!!!
Zero stars 1/5
I had this on my iPad before but it takes up so much space that I deleted it and went back to playing the original version which they have now taken away.
Great Fun! 4/5
A perfect balance between complexity and simplicity.
Porn ads...really? 1/5
I love doing the crossword puzzles, and don’t necessarily mind the ads, until a rather explicit ad shows up. It is rather graphical highly inappropriate and I really do not wish to see it. Is there no way to be rid of it or report it? Ridiculous!
PORN ADS 1/5
I was working on a puzzle and the screen flashed and all of the sudden a PORNOGRAPHIC AD was playing on my screen!!
DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS USE THIS APP!! It should be removed from the App Store immediately!
Step it up? 4/5
Fun and relaxing, but it would be nice if the clues got more difficult as you go - maybe levels you can choose?
Cannot get app to open 1/5
Been trying to convert from DCC to this app and can not get it to open. Been trying to do this for weeks. Have deleted and downloaded again and still nothing!!! Very frustrating.
Not fond 2/5
I updated from Celebrity Crossword to this one because I thought I had to, but I do not like this version! I don’t like all the “prizes” and bonuses. I just want to do the crossword! All the little pop ups that make me claim my prize before I can play is annoying!! Also, and most importantly, I don’t like the fact that the phone version does not sync with my iPad. So basically I have to choose to either use this app on my phone or iPad. I can’t just pick up where I left off. Very frustrating!
A very disgusting porn ad popped up while I was playing this game. I immediately deleted the game.
Ms Jane 1/5
By Mjb cherry
I hate this coin system -
You do not give coins for solving a puzzle
Under ten minutes
If we go back to play a puzzle missed over a year ago -you say play for ten coins - but you deduct 20
If you go into ads to get free coins - the video
Quizzes are covered with pop up ads and you can not Answer quiz
Most video want my E mail address
Most videos if finished do not give your free coins
I loved the old version
I will probably be deleting the new version
As I want to solve a puzzle to relax
Not be haunted by coins and ads that ruin my evening -
I may earn three stars for solving the puzzle
But I will give you no stars for
taking away a puzzle that made me happy
No I am not happy
- bye !
Inappropriate ads 2/5
I really like this game but I was just playing and a very x rated ad popped up and wouldn’t go away. I’m very offended and disturbed please make this right!!!
Graphic porn pop up 1/5
Mid puzzle on two occasions a graphic porn popped up on the screen. Horrible.
Deleting due to inappropriate ads 1/5
I've been playing this for months and absolutely loved it, but twice now hardcore porn ads have popped up when the app first opens.
Read the reviews and see that MANY people are having the same issues, and no help from Zynga.
I'm sad to say I have no choice but to delete the app.
Total scam 1/5
They say play a crossword for 10 coins but then they take 30 coins to play. Total scam to get you to buy more coins and a complete rip off.
Pornographic ad pop up 1/5
By Sunflower Love
I just had a pornographic ad pop up in the middle of my game. Though I’ve enjoyed playing this game previously I find this highly offensive.
NSFW Ads 1/5
If you want NSFW ads automatically playing while you use the app, this is the game for you.
Porn video 1/5
While playing this solo, a porn video popped up. This may or may not be the fault of crosswords with friends. I went to Zynga website to report this and since I could not find anyway to contact Zynga support, my only recourse was to report it here.
Porn Ads 1/5
Just downloaded the app about 15 minutes ago and after finishing typing a word into the tutorial puzzle, a porn video started playing with two girls and a guy getting extremely friendly. I can’t even call it an ad because there was no logo or anything and it immediately closed when it swiped it away. Very suspicious and very inappropriate.
Pornographic Ad played while my 8 year old was watching 1/5
I am appalled and angry!! My 8 year old likes to watch me solve the puzzle every night. When I solved tonight’s puzzle, I looked over at my 5 year old for a moment while I knew the ad would be playing. When I looked back down, there was pornography playing on my phone. My daughter was looking up, trying desperately to avert her eyes, but I know she saw something. This MUST be fixed, or I will delete every game by Zinga that I have. I will also make sure that everyone I know does the same.
There is nowhere to contact the developer, so I’m putting this here. Someone had better reach out to me quickly with an explanation and apology.
Your ads 1/5
I just started today’s puzzle and a pornographic video came on after I played 3 words!!!
Inappropriate ads 1/5
Played this game for like 2 minutes and the first ad that popped up was pornographic.
Coins incorrect 1/5
I really enjoy the game but am frustrated trying to get coins to play the game. Games say they cost 10 coins but today it subtracted 30 coins from my balance for one game. Most days it takes at least 20.
Fix it or I will delete the game.
How about giving some free coins each day as well?
Glitch maybe? 2/5
Ummm i was just now watchin the free videos to get and a PORN ad popped up!!
Great fun 5/5
Love the game!!
Doesn’t even launch 1/5
By Frust8 Ted
Downloaded and tried launching - it just churns on trying to open but never does. I deleted the app and continued using Daily Celebrity Crossword. Until today when they retired DCC. Downloaded and tried launching again. Same thing, it never opens.
Watch videos to collect points to be able to play new games.
