Difficulty moving tiles 3/5
I have issues with the current version. This is why I hate updating. I have a lot of trouble now grabbing tiles from the rack and the board and trouble placing them back into the rack. Typically now when I want to grab a tile off the board, I have to make 3-6 attempts before it even comes with my finger. And dropping the tile on the rack ends up putting the tile on the board just under the rack! It used to work just fine. Now it’s very annoying.
Consistently going downhill 1/5
I'll keep this brief. Swap+ is among the stupidest cash-grab features I've ever seen included in a game and completely destroyed the integrity of this game. Further, earning badges get harder and harder to earn the more you play and, despite people complaining about them for literally a year now (you can google the badge points requirement and find a thread where people complain and Zynga responds with "working on it" and "thanks for your patience" but it has been a year with zero improvement and the responses are all cookie-cutter designed to appease people temporarily. All you guys need to do is set one number for the badges for everyone and remove the Swap+ and I and many others would be thrilled. Yet you're too money-driven to do that and clearly never will. My suggestion? Play any other Scrabble app. ANY OTHER app will be better than this gradual trainwreck.
May delete app 2/5
I stopped playing WWF for a while and now that I’m back I’m pretty disgusted. Intrusive ads, cheats that weren’t there before, and a frequent pop up that asks me to upgrade to WWF2 with no way to simply say no. I doubt I’ll continue with this game much longer.
Swap letters - end game 1/5
Swapping out letters randomly ends the game. Yay.
Rethink this "new" version 1/5
By sure mer
Haven’t updated and won’t. The "old" (aka fine) version now takes up over half my iPad storage! Is this so I am FORCED to update? I will be FORCED to delete it soon, is what this is. Reviews don’t seem like a solid four star average when I read them. Seems more like a bit sketchy to me. I don’t think very many people enjoy the "new" (aka mo’ money) version. Nitwits...
What happened? 1/5
By Golf studly
I opened the game the other day to play my turn on the several active games I had going only to find no active games. They all disappeared without a trace. They weren’t waiting for my turn, the other players’ turns, nor were they shown as completed/resigned/or timed out. Today any and all record of my playing at all, except the 24 badges seems to be erased. Somehow I’ve earned 24 badges over the years without playing a single word. Makes me question the point of even starting back up or keeping this on my phone now.
Amazing! If you like scrabble. 5/5
This is the best on-the-go word game ever! Except for the adds. Witch is why I wrote this review. Why so many adds?!?! People, one add every now and then is one thing, but one million per 5 minutes is CrAZy! And the cost, oh, the cost to remove them! 29.99$ WHAT!?!? IT’S ADD REMOVER, NOT A FANCY BIRTHDAY PRESENT!!!!!!! But, over all it’s an amazing app.
Upgrade Notices need to END! 2/5
I’ve already bought the app. So why do I get these notices to upgrade? There is NO WAY to get out of the pop-up without totally closing out of the app, and then re-load.
This is NOT the way to get people to recommend the game to others!!!!
Had Trouble With the Picture 5/5
Every once in a while, I like to change my profile picture out every few months. Though, when I try, it doesn't let me change it. I confirm that I want to save the changes and it still doesn't let me. Don't let this keep you from downloading this awesome app, though. I really enjoy playing with my family and friends. I wish there was a 4 1/2 star, though. 🤔
I am very irritated about all these changes and updates you have put in. It has taken away the real challenge of the game. I still play the game but don’t use any of the crap that you put in. I don’t even know what all the stuff is because I feel like it’s cheating. What happened to the good old game of Wwf / scrabble. Besides if you were playing a real game with someone you wouldn’t have all the stuff that you put in. Thank you
ENOUGH WITH THE UPDATES 2/5
Would have been five stars but every time I want to freaking play there is an update. Blah!
WiFi only? 2/5
Make it playable without WiFi and my rating will go up.
Chat feature changed 3/5
After the most recent update, I can no longer see the chat that I am typing on my iPad when I’m in landscape position. I have to turn to portrait to see what I’m typing. It’s frustrating as I usually play in landscape.
Was good. Now with w2... 1/5
Was a good game. Now the word 2 version is around. Getting the upgrade only option to go to 2. I don’t want too. Need an idgaf button on the upgrade..
Love the game 5/5
But there are words in the dictionary that aren’t recognized. How do I get words into the game?
Old fan 1/5
By Shorty upper south Bronx
I used to be an avid wwf player. Almost religiously I would play. But now there are so many cheat options it's hard to gauge a good player. Tho I never agreed with their rating process I would still play often, now they've just made a joke out of a serious game I used to play. They need to bring back the original. I'm not a fan anymore.. lucky I never got that tattoo huh
Too many updates 1/5
WWF makes too many updates and manages to screw up the former updates royally. I'm becoming very disenchanted with this game.
Great Game 3/5
I’m very unhappy lately with this app because every time I open it, I get a message that says we have an upgrade for this game, and it won’t let me go to my game without going to your App Store! ☹️
I paid for the app I have so that I wouldn’t have to deal with constant ads. Now I have this issue! I don’t appreciate having to go to the App Store every time, and I DON’T WANT TO GET THE NEW ONE!! The reviews aren’t good and I keep hearing about adds and in app purchase offers!
Please do something to eliminate this problem. Thanks!
I like older WORDS better. READ. 3/5
Is the point system fixed for players on how many points to get a Badge to get 100 points? Older times you could limit your player suggestions more by choosing who you want to play with. Now all I see is a lot of creepy guys making weird faces and people with much less skills than I have. Again a few years back you could pick male or female etc. The cost of coins HIGH or even having them. I LIKE seeing where you can play. That’s a challenge in itself but Buying tiles and keeping your turn I think is cheating. Oh. Again on player suggestions they seem to not change same people suggested week after week😡 But I REALLY LIKE THIS GAME WHEN MY WIFE WATCHES TV I PLAY THIS :).
Love the game ... but do not purchase any packages . It’s fixed and you will have worse hands by buying any extra rolls ! I mean it’s bad hands and I think they think you will just keep buying more rolls , but not me ! Ugh waste of money
Ever since the last update loading is slow and going from each game it’s slow bringing up next game. So much so I’ve been hardly playing and I’ve played this game for years.
Like the game but! 2/5
By White haired lady
There is a new add for home loans that won't go away. Most adds are ok an x turns them off and the game goes on, but this just doesn't. I play one game then I'm shut out. Please fix it!
Words with friends 1/5
New fixes r awful. My messages are covered by the board & you can’t see what you are writing. Stop telling me to play someone I’m already playing please fix it
$29.99 to remove ads 2/5
Ads don’t load properly and requires you to close and reopen the app entirely. Also, $29.99 to remove is ridiculous.
CHAT feature is messed up since the last (Jan '18) update 3/5
By Kindle 6.0
When I click in the text box to Chat, the keyboard that appears now obscures the text box so I can't see what I've written. For the same reason, correcting errors in Chat is impossible. Frustrating.
By Jerilyn k.
What happened to the dictionary on my purchased words with friends app. I used it all the time and really miss it.
How can I get it back??????????
Drowning in clutter 3/5
Have loved playing this game for years with multiple people from three continents. However, would dearly love a return to the crisp, clean playing field without the clutter of annoying medals, awards, cheater crutches and notices. If they add just a few more extraneous items, the screen could pass for a kindergarten announcement board or regurgitated spaghetti. Nostalgia for the original.
I have enjoyed this relaxing game for many years. Now the latest update has intrusive, pop-up like game options- to which there appears to be no clear way to opt out.
In addition, these annoying things are at the very top of the gaming screen!
Please correct these issues immediately.
Horrible update 1/5
The 1/2018 update made this app almost unusable. It’s non- responsive, it sticks, it crashes constantly. Just about ready to quit using it.
So what now? 3/5
They want us to use the new game? Why is a separate app created? How does switching to WWF2 affect my current games in progress? Are my current friends going to be on the new app? Why no information?
Help section is woefully incomplete regarding game rules & processes.
I have lots of issues preventing me to play 1/5
This is the ONLY GAME i have a problem playing. I cannot get in to the game because when i try to open the APP, a completely different APP opens up. I have been TRYING for over 2 yrs to get in to Words with Friends to no avail. I cannot understand why a completely different APP opens up instead of this APP. I am thinking there is a bug in this APP.
Word2. Is great, love it..but.... 1/5
Love playing Word....and I played the side games, beat the Inventors, and finally won them all. Saw the message that i had won lots of prizes...BUT. I received nothing. Big disappointment. The Gold Mystery box....when will I receive my prixes?
Good game, Ads SUUUUCCCK 2/5
So I love playing this game. However, even if I have my phone on silent, the ads play sound, extremely loud!! It’s disruptive to everyone around me. Some ads have no option to mute them. If my phone is on silent, there’s a reason. I think it very rude that the makers of this app don’t have the courtesy to respect my decision to be quiet. So if you’re around, say, a sleeping baby, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME!!!! I will keep playing, but will not respect WWF until they change this feature. Ignorant.
Latest update, not happy! 3/5
By iPad couch potato
My favorite thing about Words is being able to message with friends while I’m playing. Latest update requires me to switch to profile to type. Even when I do this, sometimes the keyboard covers up what I am typing. Please fix. I do like that you let me know if I’m playing a valid word wo having to ‘play’ the word as we did previously.
OK Zynga, This is ridiculous!!! It’s almost THREE AM- WHY on earth are YOU SENDING ME MESSAGES telling me someone is “back on WWF”???!!! SERIOUSLY??!! THREE FRICKING AM?? GET YOUR $&$T TOGETHER! I really don’t need notifications that someone is “playing again” at ANY time of day, let alone 3 in the morning!!! I can figure that out all by myself! STOP DOING THIS!!!
Seriously annoyed with this game... Every Update seems to be a DOWNGRADE! Why not spend some quality time IMPROVING THE DICTIONARY!! It’s frustrating when a PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE word is rejected, while words with NO DEFINITION and Foreign words are accepted! FAIL!!!
FIX THE DICTIONARY!! There are tons of Q w/out U words-BUT YOU WON’T ACCEPT THEM!
PLEASE Bring back the CONFIRMATION before sending a word!! The game has sent words without my touching “Send”! This has been brought up by MANY PLAYERS! FIX IT!
CHAT doesn’t work with my iPad using friends-AND NO UPDATE SHOWS FOR THEM TO FIX IT OR MAKE GAME OPTIONS AVAILABLE!
I have played a long time, but I am going to find a better option if you do not address these issues- many have brought these to your attention, yet you have done nothing to address them! Stop the endless useless Data sucking crap & fix the REAL ISSUES!!
Please- DON’T DUMB-DOWN THE GAME with “New Look”s that resemble a game for a TEN YEAR OLD!!! This is getting ridiculous!!! 3 Worthless Updates- in as many days??!!!!! NOOOO MORE!! 😡
This game used to be great — now so slow it’s almost unplayable. 2/5
The delays in loading, from start-up to waiting for letters—even ad-loading—have increased markedly just in the past six months. Zynga— are you on this? You are losing my loyalty.
What the hell 1/5
Can’t play Words in iMessage anymore- keep getting message that game won’t load. Help pleaseeeeeeeeeee ;(
All I get is horrible tiles when exchanging 2/5
You guys need to do a fix on the bonus deals that enable you to trade tiles with out missing a turn. I’m getting nothing but unusable letters now all the time it’s a waste of my time and effort to have no usable letters to spell any word. These are the letters i got last time i i i u o time before was the same story.
By Biddelfart mc super
Nothing wrong with this game
NO MORE ADS!!!! 1/5
YEARS AGO I PAID FOR WORDS WITH FRIENDS TO REMOVE THE ADS. EVERY TIME I OPEN THE APP I GET AN AD TO PLAY THE GAME AD FREE. STOO SENDING ME A NOTICE EVERY TIME I OPEN THE APP TO PLAY WORDS WITH FRIENDS 2. THIS QUALIFIES AS AS AD. STOP IT! YOU ARE VIOLATING WHAT I PAID FOR. DON’t MAKE ME START A LAWSUIT!
Stop asking me to update to WWF 2 2/5
I play this game daily, it is one of few games I play. Recently every other time I open the app it wants me to upgrade to the new WWF 2. I don’t have an option to say no or X out of that, I either have to shut down the app completely or go to the App Store to get it to go away. Please do something about this. I don’t want the new app. If you wanted to change the app so much you should have done it in the original WWF!
why do your ads freeze the game
I have nothing bad to say about this game at all. But I paid to have no ads and suddenly an ad for Words with Friends 2 pops up on my screen and there is no way to close it. You just hit upgrade and go to the App Store to get rid of it. I don’t want it, I don’t want to be harassed to download it. It irritates me and makes me think less of the developer every time it interrupts me.
Stop forcing me to upgrade 😡 2/5
I already paid for the app, now it asks me to upgrade and there’s no way out of getting past it without resetting the app or hitting upgrade. I’ve spent my money so stop forcing me to download something I don’t want. You are ruining a great game with this. Give me an option to close out of upgrading instead of having to shut down the app. So irritating.
The best of words. 5/5
Of all the words with friends games available to download, this is the best by FAR. Words 2 is just flat out ugly and the gameplay is horrible. This words is really great. Just don't get hooked like I have!!
Can’t see what I am texting in the chat window. The keyboard pops up to high and covers the line used for the message.
Quit nagging me 1/5
I do NOT want V2, quit nagging me to change.
I love this game. However every time I open it, it tries to make me “upgrade” to the new version, and its to the point where I never open the app because it isn’t worth having to go through the App Store!! Get rid of this stupid pop up or at least make it able to close
By Will Shortly
Why is Solo words allowed to simply make up "Valid words" but can furnish no definition and I am NOT allowed to simply make up words that have no definition?
A word without a valid definition is, by definition, NOT a valid word!
By The spoon is eating me
This game is fine, but you have to compete against another people to play. I would play it if you could play it by yourself.
