New version is buggy. Do NOT upgrade 1/5
By Sobad L.
You're putting a great word on the board. There's one letter in place. You reach for the next letter and your finger brushes by the PLAY button and guess what? No "Play ----?" Prompt, you've just lost your turn with one letter.
This happens ALL THE TIME!!
What are they thinking?? How can I return to the old version?
DO NOT UPGRADE TO THIS LATEST VERSION . It's got the stupidest bug ever.
IOS11 Broke this app 3/5
I’m assuming you all know that your app broke with the latest iOS 11 update
Still a great game but full of bugs 3/5
Word games can be a great way to use your brain differently that's what we do all day, but....Why cant developers leave a good thing alone? This was a fun way to pass the time until recently, now it's simply an added stressor to life. The app crashes, freezes, simply wastes my time on the iPad, and makes me play less which I believe is the opposite intent for your advertisers. If this can be fixed, the added points, badges prizes are fun but not when you destroy the game itself.
Best game EVER!!!!!!!!
Absolutely awful! 1/5
We’ve played this game for years and this latest update has ruined it. There’s too much clutter and the ads are back! I’m pretty sure we “bought” the game early on to get rid of the ads. Did I miss a memo? The list of “friends” is filled with total strangers and my #1 opponent for almost five years is not listed. How does that even happen?! We’re unable to connect for a game because the app can’t find either of us in the others list of friends. SERIOUSLY?!!
The developers are undoubtedly brilliant and if their evil and sinister plan was to chase me from this game, they have exceeded their expectations.
Needs update! 3/5
Please update to be compatible with new Apple software!
Too many pop ups 3/5
By Seasoned Citizen!
I just want to play w/f with my sister. I dislike all the options and repeated offers to do this or that. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoy the game.
Ads that lock up game 1/5
I enjoy playing but certain ads won't respond to X to disconnect them. Please fix the issue zynga or I'm gone for good!!!!
Dump the annoying ads 1/5
I feel like you turned this game into a click-bait ad fest.
If I’m the kind of person playing word games- why are you throwing obnoxious wannabe Candy Crush/Bubble Which games in my face after every move.
I’d gladly pay to have this ridiculous feature removed.
I held off downloading this version of words with friends because of the ads. I PAID in the first version to have the ads removed. I only downloaded this version because I no longer had a choice with IOS 11. Why do I have to pay again to remove the ads in this version? Every play has an ad. It's not as much fun as the first version for sure!
Leave well enough alone. 2/5
Not the same since iOS 11 update.
Used to have WWF HD...now I have to have classic. Bring back the old.
No ads 3/5
Is there a way I can purchase something tonwjere I won't get any adds?
Need update for iOS 11.0 ASAP.... 4/5
I uploaded new iPhone update and my word w friends will not open.., Help....
Hate the Ads - rather have option to purchase app 2/5

Hate the Ads - rather have option to purchase app
Dummies with no friends 1/5
This was the only game I ever played. Just deleted it. Your failures are already listed among other reviews.
Enjoy playing for years! 4/5
I've played this game for years now. I liked it better when you could play tons of games with the same few people. I don't really want to play with strangers and don't
Fun and addictive 👍🏼
Words with friends 5/5
By Holy Cows
I've been play for 7 years now! I'm hooked on this game! 😊
Needs updating to ios11 1/5
Please update! This game will not run with ios11.
No iOS 11 update 2/5
By The Furry Sqek
Can’t play the game now :( When will you have an update for iOS 11?
Great Game 5/5
Love the gif feature, also the dictionary for each word played is a great way to build your vocabulary and have an accurate definition, great for those English enthusiasts. Also, the word if the day is my favorite. It was a great buy to not have ads anymore, worth it!
Doesn't Even Work 🙄 1/5
By Farah 💖
I downloaded this app and tried to make an account. I put in a password and it told me to reset it which I thought I was kind of odd. But I just went along with it. Then I clicked on the link to reset the password and it said it was invalid. I tried several times and it wouldn't let me. 🤷🏾♀️
By Annoyed Wordie
I've played this game for many, many years now and I've always enjoyed it..until recently. I bought this game about 5-6 years ago to get rid of all of the ads. When I bought a new phone, I wasn't able to download it from the cloud and now they want $29.99 for the darn thing!! The ads are SOOOO LONG and if you have your volume on, it blasts though your speakers like a bull horn, even when you have "sounds" turned off in the game settings. For crying out loud, Zynga.. FIX THAT ALREADY! Geez!
Words with friends 5/5
By Donna jovi
Amazingly fun and addictive!! Highly recommended!! Can't wait to get on after work and see 50 games waiting on me! No problems on this game!! Love it!!!
Words with Friends 5/5
Great game.. love it!!!!
I'm addicted 4/5
Love the user friendly app. Play it all the time. If they would fix the counter of the number of jqxz words I've played and retroactively credit us I would change my rating o 5 stars.
Love this! 5/5
OMG! This is so much fun, bonding with friends and enjoying healthy competition!!!
I had Word Pro ... 1/5
By Fun in Paris
With the iPhone software update to 11.0 I was forced to install this horrible version. Word Pro was no longer supported. It’s like going from first class in an airplane to being stowed with the baggage. Awful. Fix it for those that paid. (No ads still, but it’s very juvenile version.)
Needs updating 1/5
Can’t play with iOS 11. Please update!!!!
Expansion of the lexicon 1/5
Adding 50k words to a 173k word lexicon dilutes the challenge. I'm deleting the app.
Please quiet the ads! 4/5
I like the game, I'm happy with it the way it is, but I don't like that:
1. You insist on playing video ads when I am using my cellular data and not wifi.
2. That, even if I have my phone on silent to be considerate of others sleeping in the house, you have the video ads play with full sound.
Goodbye WWF 1/5
I’ve enjoyed playing WWF for several years. I had the original ad free version, which I was happy to pay for. I resisted upgrading time after time because I feared the ads would be awful. You stopped offering ad free versions, even with pay. Today I upgraded to IOS 11 which meant finally my old WWF app no longer worked. I downloaded the latest version of WWF, and things were just as I feared. Actually, they were WORSE than I feared. As much as I love WWF, it’s simply not worth having an ad play after every single move. It’s no longer relaxing but is in fact tortuous. And it’s. It just the ads. You’ve made the entire game obnoxiously busy busy busy. Sad day for me. I will miss WWF. And I’ve read enough of others’ reviews to know that you have had plenty of complaints, but do nothing. I have no expectations at this point.
Recent update ruined game!! 1/5
After the recent update on 9-15-17, it no longer lets me play the game!! There have been many complaints about this too. Game updates are supposed to make the game better; not worse 😤 I used to love playing this, but it no longer works!! I've uninstalled and tried to reinstall. Used a different phone to download it...nothing is working. So very frustrating!!! 😡
I have had 3 different games disappear on me while actively playing with a friend and had to start new games. So I don't play anymore
This game takes "words" that aren't words, as long as they're listed in dictionary.com. So there's all kinds of bs things that will pass like chemical symbols from the periodic table or abbreviations and acronyms.
I'm done! 1/5
I'm done with this game. All the "improvements" have caused it to crash over and over again. Every time I play a game, it disappears! Good bye WWF. The game isn't fun anymore. Bring back the very first version and I may look at you again.
It was fun... 1/5
This is a great game! My friends and I have been playing it for years.
I have loved this game for the past few years but now, I can't see all of my games. I get notifications of games about to expire but i can't play on them. I can't even play with several friends here lately. I have update the app, and deleted the app and reinstalled several times and there doesn't seem to be a fix. I am unable to see more and more of my games. About to give up on the app altogether.
By Me 7 1/2
Get all that trash--especially those people--off my screen!!!!!
Ads ruin it 1/5
After trying for several months to like this app, I have decided to stop playing it because of the ads that pop up after every play. I have better things to do with my time than to watch the same ads played over and over, some as long as half a minute. I am working on converting my opponents to Scrabble.
Awesome and frustrating too! 5/5
By Quick's wife
I am an avid fan of WWF's and I have met so many lovely people whom I never would have known if I didn't place any tiles. Do I get frustrated with game at times? Yes, I clearly do, but it doesn't make me want to stop playing. It also provides a learning opportunity as I gain vocabulary words. Thanks for bringing Scrabble to Facebook! I love playing it!
Scrap the cheats 1/5
Really hate all the cheats!! This game is supposed to be about skill, not gimmicks!
Small Vocabulary 1/5
Except for slang this game knows very few American English words. There does not seem to be any logic to which nouns it accepts. Many words are derived from French, and it doesn't know any of those. I waste most of the time ingame trying to find juvenile words for this moronic game to accept. It is also racist as it will allow words such as Latino, but not Hindi etc. Really bad ignorant game.
Great app! 5/5
Been playing words with friends for a long time and really like this app! Highly recommend.
Love the Game - Hate the Ads! 3/5
This is a great (and addictive) game. It's fun and continues to evolve in nice ways. I don't mind ads--especially if the game is good and free. But the ads cause the game to freeze . . . ALL THE TIME. Frustrating.
Great game 5/5
A great way to stay sharp and caught up with friends!
Fun game 4/5
Have lots of fun playing this game with friends, relatives, and strangers in many locations. Fun way to stay connected. I like that the acceptable words are built in, but it does reject some words that are real, based on them being potentially offensive. I like the opportunity to review the profile of potential opponents.
Love this game. 5/5
By E Wooie Lewis & the Goo
I've been playing it for years and I never get bored. Only discovered solo play a year ago so now I play lots of games at a time. Love it.
Awful just awful 1/5
After a lot of thought I have decided to stop playing words with friends. I have deleted the app. For me the game has been changed too much by the authors from what it was originally. I do not like the new legal cheats they have added to the game and the obvious tweaks to the way letters are dispersed. The authors of the game have ruined what was a wonderful and great game.
Ads Freeze and it too expensive to buy 2/5
I enjoy the game but am thinking of dumping it for the above reasons. I have to delete and download again at least every couple days. To buy the app for ad free is 30 bucks. No Way!!! Not a Chance!! Nyet!!!
Latest Update is no good 3/5
By Charcoal Sketcher
I have played this game for years. I have not played the game much since the update, so I am not sure if there are other problems. However, The little green mark which shows if a word is valid, has stopped working. It still shows as green, but that does not mean the word is excepted. I know this is a glitch. Please fix it so that the green mark indicate a valid word. Also, you had added annoying things, even though the app is not the free app. Badges, with the people wanting to play, etc. have detracted from this game.
