Solo play 3/5
What happened to solo play? Would have given a five star had solo play not disappeared....
Looking for an alternative 3/5
I have been playing WWF for 5+ years. I've noticed lately that letter selection is hugely unbalanced. Its hard to believe it could be random. Either I get 7 vowels repeatedly (4 times in a row, even after swapping 4 tiles), or I get all the high pt tiles (all 10 pt, and many of the other high pt tiles) which of course means the other player gets none. I can tell you from MANY games of scrabble, that this does not happen. I don't know what's up, but I am about to quit. Winning by 200 pts or losing by 100 is not about skill, and is BORING.
Ok, I love the game. But the ads are everywhere! After being bombarded with ads I wanted to see how much it costed to remove them. $30? Really???? If it were $1 I probably would have paid but really? The ads make the game far less fun. I would have given 5 stars but the ads and the price is just disappointing.
Can’t Connect With Friends 3/5
By Great Expectations in WA
I downloaded this app to play with a friend. Even though we both started games with each other and followed the links in the invitations, we have never been able to connect. I tried getting help with this issue but there is no topic that covers this and no way to contact the developers to let them know. The ads are very aggravating. You see one after every single move, and there is the same handful of ads that are replayed. Most often the ads freeze and you have to go through a whole operation to kill the app, re-enter, and then you still have to watch the ad before you can move on. Tedious.
Raised coin amounts 4/5
I love Words with Friends but why did you raise the coin amounts for everything? I used to be able to get one word radar for 10 coins and now it’s 20, or 5 of them for 85 coins. Even the frames for your pictures went up.
Sounds are annoying 2/5
I love this game but I set my sounds to off since I’m often in areas where sound can’t be on. Yet, even with my setting saying no sound and my phone on vibrate the ads pop up very loud and full sound. The game is not worth paying $30 to have ads removed, which makes me think I will have to delete the game and not play since the sounds setting really doesn’t mean no sound.
In until it leaves you hanging 2/5
By Gaston Lake
This game never cycles to show me its time for my turn until I hit “nudge”. Now it no longer works even doing that even though it’s updated.
Works good but 4/5
I like how everything is working except notifications are not showing up in lock screen or on app badge. I hope this gets fixed soon. Thanks
I hate this ad 1/5
I just want you to know how much I LOATHE that ad with the little personified squares. A) they ugly B) When they start bouncing around and then bounce DIRECTLY TOWARDS ME and fill the ENTIRE SCREEN?? I feel so threatened! They're coming for me! They're gonna smack right into me!!! I don't wanna play with characters like that, it's downright menacing!!! Anyway, thanks, I hate it 0/10 have not convinced me to re-download this app even once since this game stopped being relevant in 2011 and this ad is NOT HELPING UR CAUSE
This app is working fine one minute, and then the next minute my games are missing as so is the coin store. What is going on here? My husbands app on his iPhone works perfectly fine.
Need to update app! 3/5
Trying to play after updating IPhone to IOS11 and it’s not even letting me in the game. Says that the developer needs to app ☹️ What the heck, people? Please get this fixed as I love to play this game.
Update is a horror!! 1/5
They ruined this game with the update! Now there’s no way to navigate from one board to the next without having to go through long, annoying ads BETWEEN EACH GAME! The old version was a pleasure. Like the old saying goes, if 8t ain’t broke don’t fix!
Please change back..... 4/5
Love this game , update ok, however please put back the ‘want to play this word?’ Pop up when you press play. I find that I sometimes hit play when I am just going to pick up a letter now. Play a 2 point word when it could have been a 22 point word. Great game , just put back the ‘play’ failsafe.
Very disappointed 1/5
By Catalyst Too
Love this game, BUT latest version cuts to black screen after every 2 or 3 turns. The only way to get back is to reboot my iPad or IPhone. Pain in the _ _ _. Plus thought when you are paying for the game, there are no ads. That is not the case. After every turn there is an ad or a promotion or screen black. More tedious, go back to Classic WWF
Love the game, but PLEASE update for iOS 11!!!! 5/5
By JlC Seattle
I can’t play this on my iPad any more, please update it soon!!!
I have lost all my games after rebooting to solve the problem I now know to be due to IOS11. All I can get is an ancient game without all my friends! Please contact me about this. Text is the best way. 713-557-0346
Uncomfortably cluttered interface 3/5
The user interface – particularly the main screen – is cluttered with uninteresting things. Anything that not only hides the main functionality but makes it difficult to scroll to it with masqueraded touch-sensitive areas is a failure of design.
I hate that i have to use this to play these games with my friends.
Hate the update 1/5
I want to get rid of all the extra stuff showing up now. I don't want badges
After my phone updated I can't open words with Friends. Help please?
Great game but... 3/5
By Blah awesome behind
I love this game and play it all day long everyday. The problem with the game is that there are way too many ads! Almost every single time I make a move an ad will pop up and they are usually videos so takes awhile for them to go. It is so annoying and the price for no ads is $29.99 which is ridiculous! I love this game just the ads and that price is wild.
New ‘enhancements’ stink ! 3/5
Swap letters without losing your turn ?
Seriously ? PLEASE get rid of that feature ! Also the word radar....terrible !
Next you’ll just have the game make the optimal move for you.
You’re ruining the game !
Can't stand the ads that won't go away. 1/5
My favorite game is now ruined by ads that just won't go away! I expect ads but when an ad just stays and you can't play at all is so unfair. I once gave this game a 5 star rating, now it's a 1 star at best, really deserves no stars. I am disgusted!
I love the ability to earn the badges and I also love the weekly challenges. However I can’t be on the game 24/7 and the points just keep getting higher every week. It needs to change, mix it up a bit, after high one week, make them lower the next week. Give us a break! Also the game has lagged for several weeks now. Takes several seconds to drag the first letter. Annoying. Please fix!
Doesn’t work 1/5
I get notifications that friends have played me back, but they still show as if it’s in there queue. For the last 24 hours I have no been able to play any games because of this glitch. I’ve restarted my phone, deleted and redownloaded the app, nothing works. VERY FRUSTRATING.
Having a problem 2/5
WWFs is constantly loading up my letter choices with vowels...nothing but vowels. And on top of that, most are duplicates of each other. Out of 7 tiles, 5 are being loaded with vowels, and out of those 5, 3 are all the same. I am getting beat by my opponents because I can't make more than the traditional 3-4 letter words. Not good scoring, not fun. Please fix. Thanks.
Words with Friends 1/5
I had played this game daily with my morning coffee and after going to bed.
Now you have destroyed it. I hate this kiddy version.
You lost a real follower.
Mostly good but a few issues. 3/5
It functions most of the time adequately but the swap function is awful. Much more often than should be normal, when swapping out even 2-3 tiles, I end up with at LEAST one of the same tiles back! It happens too often to just be their so-called random selection.
Also, their dictionary is sometimes quite lousy. Some common English words found in Webster’s or Oxford are not allowed and despite submitting the words multiple times, they are not added.
Please fix!! 2/5
I have a “Solo” game that refuses to leave my active list no matter what I do. It is keeping me from starting a new game as there is a limit of three.
I’m sick of seeing this game.
Won’t let anyone play like she’s next but she didn’t move? This app is poop.
Fix bug 2/5
By Tony SGS
The game will give other people the win when I have letters remaining that will allow me to win the game breaking my win streak. This needs to be fixed. It happens way to often.
Tell me something useful 2/5
App no longer tells me when games are going to expire so now they just time out and I don’t bother playing anymore.
At least I still get a useless word of the day notification. Helpful!
How do I get rid of solo play 5/5
Don't want or need all these extra features. Solo play keeps putting up 2 games that I don't want to play. VERY ANNOYING
I have installed the app twice. Won't accept my imports. Keeps giving error message. My
version is the supported version but it still will not work for me. There is no message to " update" so I cannot do that either.
No update for Iphone 1/5
I enjoyed my paid version of “words with friends” for a long time until now. Apparently there is no updated version for iPhone IOS version 11.0.3. I cannot get back to my unfinished games so I guess I will just wait for an update to be written.
I love playing Words however am very disappointed because I play words and they do not reach the players they are supposed to go to. I play with my sister and although I send her six games they do not show up for her. I have contacted Words web site and nothing has been done about it.
Swap+ = BS 1/5
Please remove Swap+ feature. Tile swap without losing a turn is ridiculous!!!
this game'll help u with all ur vocabulary
Annoying bug? 4/5
Love this game, but for a few months now, old finished games keep popping back up in my active game lists, I've tried shutting my phone off, swiping them away, but they keep coming back. Please help me fix this!! It's extremely annoying!!
30.00 to remove ads?? 1/5
By dammit charlie
Come on people. Get lost.
Disappearing games 1/5
I have some games going in this version(only in this version-not in Classic). And they have disappeared!!
Also the curious coin options also are sometimes there and other times gone!
What is the problem? And Fix It!
I love playing Words , but it keeps blacking out on me what do I need to do
HATE the new version 1/5
I have been playing WWF for years. I absolutely hate the new version I was forced into with the iOS update. Interface is completely cluttered with crap even without ads. I just want to see my games and play them, not have to wade through a maze of suggested “badges”, challenges, words of the day, players, ways to earn little coins, suggestions for words I could have played, etcetera ad infinitum.
A classic, clutter-free option in settings would be nice. As it is, I may delete the app and go back to doing crosswords on paper. LOSE THE BS.
Words with strangers 1/5
By Clara Bee
Since the new update, I hate playing. The game shows me all these people I might want to play. I do not like that. I can choose my partners without your help. There are too many distractions now. Since I don’t have commercials the developer must want all these things in the game. STOP STOP STOP. I LIKE MY PRIVACY. Don’t show anyone when I am playing. You can’t go back automatically to your last app anymore. Terrible upgrade.
Volume on Ads 1/5
If i have my phone silenced, it is UNACCEPTABLE to push ads that loudly override your phone silence settings. We silence our phones for a reason. (People sleeping, in class, etc) If this continues, i will stop playing this game and delete the app from my phone!!
Sooo sad.... 1/5
By Ed Dale
I can’t play you anymore because Apple auto-upgraded me to ios11?
And you’re not compatible and all my games are resigning me and I’ve played for years and I keep tapping on the icon and then feeling sad...
Please redevelop it!
Love it despite glitches! 4/5
Love this game, plenty of available opponents with friends & strangers. Don't like that games stay "stuck" as pending on my iPhone when finished on iPad. Also annoying is banner that pops up suggesting I start games with past or present friends. Also some strangers/match of day can be creepy asking too many personal questions
Luv the game but -
1. Why does it accept proper names?
2. So tired of seeing the definition - this word is valid. Hello? If you can't find a definition, it's not a word!
3. My coins have not been accurate. It's been 2507 for days/weeks despite my daily plays and finishing the weekly challenges!
Still Buggy! 3/5
Notification icon always shows one more than the actual turns to play. I'll get a"2" on the icon but only have "1" play. Same with "4" but only have "3" turns. Annoying.
Ever since I downloaded iOS 11 I’m told that Words with Friends Pro needs to be updated. When is that going to happen?
Words with Friends 1/5
By Loretta G.
I really enjoyed playing your app "words with friends"
and have encouraged many friends and family to download your app and use it to play with me and others.
I can not enjoy your game any longer now that I experienced a glitz in your addition.
At the end, last played word, of my game last night, the program subtracted 15 points off MY total score and added it to my opponents score along with her last word of 8 points......they ended game with the big banner,
"CONGRATS! YOU TIED!"
I can no longer trust your addition, and don't care to cross check your numbers.
