Men that message you pretending to be Americans. 3/5
Men from overseas are using this app to con women. They pretend that they live in the United States and want to know if your married, have kids, if you live with your husband etc. Do not fall for it. If you read back through their messages they misspell the words, can’t tell you the time where they are supposed to be in the states and always ask, how are things over there etc. it’s scammers!!!!
Fed up with app 1/5
I love this game but I am ready to quit entirely. It is SLOOOOOOOW to move on and the stupid prizes, bonuses and other idiotic promotions have me just about ready to say goodbye and good riddance.
Try harder. WW2 steals coins 1/5
Once again you do not know how to add. I was just about to add a star when you miscalculated once again. 1384+22 does NOT equal 1404. Do you do this to everyone or just single out my account?
In my school 1400 + 31 = 1431. In WWF 1400+31= 1426... I have screen cap to prove it. I call that robbery. So I took away your stars as ransom for my coins.
And 1453+49 does not equal 1500
Also, 75 coins +10 coins does NOT equal 83
This is a great game that I love to play. But you’ve ruined it by adding all this unnecessary flashiness. Where’s the OFF button? I noticed that on a February review where someone complained about this, the developer gave a response that they were already working on it. We should be patient. Well it’s been a long time and has only gotten worse! Thank goodness I paid 99cents to remove ads for this game 10 years ago. I’ve been a loyal player ever since. And invited friends to play. If you’re trying to lose the old- timers who just want to play without interruptions, congratulations you’re succeeding!!
THANK YOU for allowing us to turn off tile styles so I don’t have to see those colored tiles that make me dizzy.
Yes, I LOVE the power ups ... but you could give a discount when buying more than one. And why does the number of coins I can earn have a cap?? The daily bonus coins went down from 3 to 1. How Greedy can you get? Other games increase them daily when you play a number of days in a row. And forcing me to click “great” to go on with the game when I really want to click “awful,” just adds insult to injury.
If you want to reward me with coins just give them to me. Don’t put them in a box to be opened later. Let us shut off all these time wasting interruptions. Animations are for kids.
These guys have to stop with the made up words ... 1/5
By Drag0n Lady
“Durneder”....really? And yet words like “Doric” - as in Doric columns....”Uzi” as in Israeli machine gun.... and others. I HATE this game because it’s play-against-the-house lets the house use foreign words (where I cannot) and the house gets to use made up words.
Oh let’s not forget the word HUIC....which is a WWF “accepted” word but never defined. Just a bunch of letters that your site says is a word.
Add to made up words BINIT and also HOLK
Practice games going wrong 1/5
Practice game every time I start one go to play again says something went wrong next one again 3 of them try to start a game can’t till others r finished how when u tell me something went wrong I deleted & reinstalled so many times sick of it
Don’t do it! 1/5
Paid for the app to get rid of annoying ads. Now they’ve added so much junk to it that the app runs so slow it is pitiful. Don’t do it save your money save your time. Useless little widgets pop-up that do nothing but slow down the game. Don’t do it save your money and your time!
Played original Words. Bought new IPhone and unable to play Words. Trying Words2 unable to transfer games, wins or anything else. Starting from scratch. Too many pop games that waste time.
Popups are very Irritating 1/5
The automatic pop-ups in this game are so irritating. There is no flow or fluidity. Stop the ridiculous pop-ups.
Close to perfect! I just wish for a couple of things! 4/5
I love this game because it challenges me and exercises my mind while relaxing me. It helps me unwind and it’s just plain fun. I was sad when the 1500 coins limit was established. It would have been fun if the creators had come up with new things to purchase and we could keep increasing our piggy banks. The 1500 limit kind of put a damper on that fun. My biggest issue is that I really wish there were more pale, pastel tile-style colors to get. I find that the super pale, light colors are the best (such as the pale, pastel pink) because the letters stand out more and the pale colors don’t clash with other people’s’ bright colors and they are more soothing. As of now, I’ve only seen the pale pastel pink which is what I’ll stick to and I’ll just have to hope the creators will add more. This is a really enjoyable and relaxing game and I’m always trying to recruit people!
Solo Challenge isn’t fun anymore 2/5
Solo challenge used to be a lot of fun. Now they made it so difficult that you rarely get 3 stars and just barley pass at all! No fun anymore, will it play the solo challenge.
Overall a good game “except” 4/5
The game allows “words” that cannot be found in any dictionary. For example: HM the dictionary in the game calls it a residual. I call it an abbreviation. This happens mostly while playing against the computer (solo challenge).
Keeps freezing and crashing 3/5
I love this game but ever since one of your updates, it takes at least 2 minutes to open and constantly locks up, freezes, or just crashes. I saw others who said the same thing. I’ll hit a letter and it takes 20-30 seconds to do anything. Or I’ll start a new game and it does nothing.
I thought I was just my phone, but I got a new phone yesterday and this game won’t even open. It just stays frozen on the blue screen that shows a couple tiles. All my other games work fine. Is this game not compatible with iOS 13?
Random game invited 1/5
I turned off all possible features to prevent random people from contacting me. At 3 am I get notifications that a random stranger wants to play with me.
All the ad make it painful. Paying to stop ads is equally as painful!
Mystery Boxes and 30 second ads! 3/5
I feel like once I play one of the games, you are wasting my time in between. Those gardenscapes and other games ——scapes end with the word FAIL. Are you subliminally sendin us players a negative message? I game I love. I don’t understand the whole mystery box thing and dislike the ads as mentioned above. Just want to play the game!
How the mighty have fallen 1/5
This once was the game to have. Everyone was playing it. I was an original. Bought it in its infancy so I was grandfathered in and never had to pay the ridiculous $19.99 they are now charging for no ads. But alas, this has become too big for its britches.
Now if you have any kind of a profile pic the resembles anything remotely like you might be a human being with a pulse you are constantly being sent lewd messages.
They expect you to wait 12 days before you can remove a game from your queue when someone has decided to not play or it counts as a loss against you for resigning.
Words with friends has created their OWN dictionary. Yes, you read that correctly. They use their own dictionary to determine what is a valid word and what is not. They do not use Oxford or Merriam. Any Scrabble or Boggle player worth their weight knows that is unacceptable. This why an abbreviated word such as OK and ZA is acceptable in WWF.
I finally walked away after 10 years.
Not working on new iohone 11 2/5
As a long time player, I was disappointed today that the app won’t load past the splash screen on my new, and fully updated iPhone 11. I have games in process. People I’ve been playing with for 7 years. Don’t make me let them down, Zynga! 2 stars for now because I’m hoping you’ll get it fixed.
Word freezes up 1/5
I’ve been playing Words for many years. On my new iPhone 11 the game freezes up right after I launch it.
Ads are too long 3/5
Really like the game but ads are tooo long
By joe phlysknee
My wife and I have played this for a very long time.Now ,all of the sudden ,we can not play the game without entering an email or Facebook.With this company having recently been hacked and people’s info being compromised I will not use Facebook or email to log on .Why did you change this BTW only my wife has to give this info I don’t .You ruined a good game.
HELP,! HOW CAN I REMOVE NON STANDARD GAMES LIKE SOLO OR I WILL DELETE THE ENTIRE GAME THAT I ENJOYED UNTIL NOW?
I paid to have this game WITHOUT ADS but still get these loud, gaudy and obnoxious game ads. Help please!
Play someone new changes 3/5
What happened to the Play Someone New listing? There used to be a large rotation of potential opponents and mutual friends.
Now I see 5 people and all of them are past opponents or one or two mutual friends.
I liked being able to choose someone new when play gets dull.
game good ; chat having issues 3/5
The game is good but i mostly use it for the chat feature which has not been working correctly for a while now.
Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t fix the issue either . hopefully they can fix this issue soon!
Cannot purchase power ups from store 3/5
By Best Pooch
The game no longer allows purchase of power ups with earned or purchased coins. It returns a “Oops! Something went wrong” message every time. I have reported this error to WWF support but, even after uninstall/reinstall actions, the inability to buy powerups with coins persists. I love the game and up until now would have rated it as 5 stars but recent bugs and glitches are discouraging and disappointing..
Why are my coins not being added to my stash of coins. Every time I get a bonus. They seem to be lost somewhere.
Down the Drain Game 1/5
By Head Healer
This used to be a GREAT game but it continues to do nothing but freeze up, kick you off line and does not respond quickly at all. Really don’t like all the creeps who try to use WWF as a dating site. Things like a Duel are a fun idea until you go to play, game kicks you off line and opponent continues to play and finish game without me. Not fun. Why has the quality of this game just gone down the drain? It used to be so fun, now, just frustrating.
Way too many ads, ad free way too expensive. 1/5
By Flying Delta from Indy
$9.99 per 30 days ad free? Crazy! No one I play with is paying this as they got in on an earlier version. If you don’t pay the extortion fee, you get an ad, and a long one, every, single play. And I mean every play!
So frustrating! Good game but not worth $120 bucks a year!
long ads 1/5
The long ads make this game not fun. You can purchase no adds for 30 days for $9.99 which is a rip off. I would pay a one time fee for no adds but not $9.99 a month. I love the game itself but catch myself
Not playing it as much because of the ads and the wait time between each play/move.
Great game! 4/5
Something changed! I mean certain reals words are not acceptable. It’s kind of a turn off because these are actually words. Please fix or update the dictionary for the game. Love this game one of my favorites. And if it get a updated with the words I can definitely change this to a 5 Star.
By Pocket god gamer
I liked the bots that played their turn in seconds. They seem to have been replaced by bots that take as long - or longer- than people do. Pretty much ending my interest.
I love playing this game except I get annoyed by all the silly pop ups. I paid for ads free butt still get a pop up for playing a two letter word, playing word combos, using certain letters, opening boxes for gems.... It seems endless. I just want to play the game!!!!
Somethings wrong 3/5
I love this game and have played for years. Recently, I’ve been getting game requests from people I don’t know...and some of the profile pics look provocative. I double checked all my settings to ensure I have the options off for people I don’t know interacting with me. If I’m missing something please let me know and I will do my part to fix it...otherwise, get those women off my screen please.
Way Overboard! 3/5
By Ken Gargas
I love the actual game it’s self but the FREE GIFTS, BADGES, WORD PLAY, ect. seems to be way overboard. I could do without those. I get frustrated when all of these things keep popping up in the middle of my games./ moves. I do like the options of having options to purchase POWER UPS, HINDSIGHT, and the SWAP without losing a turn. Maybe it’s just me but I liked the original classic WWF game. Five stars would be my rating if it weren’t for the constant pop ups during my games.
To many gimmicks 1/5
By Roo Bee Doo
Can’t just play the game, play is interrupted with rewards and other crap no one cares about. Common words are not accepted but proper names, abbreviations, and ancient foreign words not used in 400 years are. The best strategy is to just throw tiles out at random until a “word” is accepted.
Love the game, but... 5/5
I never get credit for starting a new game when it’s one of the daily challenges. I get credit for everything else, but not for that. Does it have to be a NEW new person, or just a new game with anyone?
Silly features 4/5
I love this game, but I can’t stand the little games inside such as play all the letters in this word. These things slow the game down and add little to the play other than annoyance. Is there any way to turn these off?
Also , it helps us to remember new words if we can look up the definition: too many times there is none.
Finally, the “Should have played here, dummy” feature is great. Again, it would help if we could look up the definition.
Question: “How can we ruin this game?” 1/5
Answer: By adding asinine “levels, challenges, and other useless crap!”
There are so many awards/rewards that don’t earn coins. I don’t want a new tile style, I don’t want badges. I just want coins to get power ups. I played one of the daily challenges, got the box, opened the box and got a tile unlock. No stinking coins to be had.
Without power ups, it’s impossible to win games. Even against the very easy solo challenge. I’m about to walk away.
To crazy 1/5
It’s way to difficult to play computers at extremely
Difficult. Advise against doing any of challenges
A person has to use word cheats to even come close
Will start getting out of games. Has to be a better Aptau
Definitely addictive! 5/5
It’s fun! I’m always looking for ways to broaden my vocabulary so I thought I’d try this game! I enjoy playing & if it didn’t take so long to load the game I’d play more The only thing I don’t care for is how many guys try to use this as a way to hook up! I don’t even have a picture of myself on and I have so many weirdos trying to talk to me. So other than slow loading & weirdos it’s a great game!
Don’t buy the keys 1/5
Don’t waste your money buying keys to unlock the best words. I’ve made three purchases and I only get to use the keys while I am on the app at that time. Once you close the app, the key count goes to zero.
This last time I got to use ONE key. So I paid for 26 and used one. What a rip off.
What’s with all the hang-ups? 3/5
Enjoy the game, but have found that it has too many moments where the app freezes momentarily (example, the letters don’t immediately load) and too many interruptions with the daily challenges. I just want to play the game. Am using the most up to date version of the app and on an iPad with the latest IOS. But have noticed the delays now for several months. No similar issues with any other apps.
Crash, Crash, Crash 1/5
I have been playing Words for several years and have enjoyed using the Practice Mode. For several months, these games crash on my iPad. Zenga says they’re aware of the problem but it has only gotten worse. Very frustrating. And don’t get me started with the “Dictionary”
Great game, but beware 5/5
Words is a great game and one of the few that I’ve paid to have no ads, but I would like to warn female players about something that has cropped up recently. I have been challenged by more than a dozen men who want to become “dear friends “ with me. They all purport to be divorced or widowed, always with children. They want to know where you live, how old you are, whether you are happily married, have children, etc. Usually, as soon as I tell them that I am in my 70s, happily married, they quit playing or somehow disappear. One however asked me to join a site called HangOut and wanted my email address. He disappeared after I declined. These men must be trolling for vulnerable women - chat with them if you wish, but don’t give them any information! I am sure you’d regret it.
Great fun 5/5
This is a Word Game that I enjoy. My only problem with this app is the number of men that think it is a place to pick up women!! I’ll play the game but sorry I don’t need a date, I have a life, you men should get one!!
Too many ads 1/5
By too many ads 123456
Love this game but the increase in ads at 30 seconds after every play is ridiculous. Don’t even want to play it anymore.
Ghost notifications 2/5
Keep getting notifications on ‘store and profile’. There is nothing there when I click on it. Customer service suggests to do this and that but nothing changes. Very distracting!
By Margie P.
I love words with friends but good grief could you quit with the annoying games, and daily awards and stuff like that. Or tell me how I can opt out of that crap.
Started playing yesterday ads are ok. But practice mode doesn’t want to work I received a phone call and practice mode will not let me re-enter to finish it is stuck on my screen. Opened a second practice mode and it’s stuck on screen also. Will not let me continue the game. It wants to freeze up quite a bit I’m using an iPhone. Also no one wants to play it seems. Have used lightning games it only wants to work part of the time seems like no one is there so there isn’t enough players to start a match. Most of the game requests are declined. I haven’t gotten to play very much. I started one game with someone and they wanted me to quit the game. I know I’m not very good at it. I might look for something else to work on my vocabulary and spelling just doesn’t seem like there are very many friendly people out there.
