Ad infested app. 1/5
Are you excited to spend half your time stuck in ads? Do you ever wish... that after every single turn you take in a video game is followed by an ad? Has there ever been a time when you were stuck in an ad that you pressed the x button in one of the corners to close the ad and it closes but ANOTHER x button appears to be sure that the first x you pressed could have hopefully been a mistake so it provided you a second x?
Look no where else! All your ad dreams come true when you play Words With Friends. If ever you are having ad withdraws then you must play this game!
Two complaints 2/5
By Leo add leo
The dictionary for this game is terrible. It has tons of nonsense words for which it cannot provide a definition. I wish there were a way to report these words.
Also, every time I play my grandmother the game hangs midway
Dee Dun 3/5
This game is fun and has potential. However, it inevitably freezes in the Solo Challenge after the 4th or 5th level. The opponent sticks on “processing”.
Princess Bride is stuck 3/5
Count Rugen is stuck in a loop of "still processing"
Too much crap! 1/5
This new version has all kinds of useless awards and other junk you can’t shut off. It is obnoxious and ridiculous. Please make it optional or get rid of it. Takes forever to make a play.
It just gets worse. Why, after paying to remove ads, I am forced to go through all kinds of relentless junk. Solo challenge...no thank you! Princess bride...no thank you! The eggstravaganza...no thank you! Lightening round...no thank you! Puppy bunny challenge...no thank you!
You have room this game. I would give you zero stars if I could!

Improvement over the previous version but... 3/5
I enjoy the game and concept. Love the Solo play and Lightning Round. Also, enjoy the instant notification of playable vs unplayable word after tile placement. A serious issue though, is the position of the player tile tray. It’s right at the bottom of my iPad screen which is also the location of Apple’s hidden dock feature. It gets in the way of enjoying the game when the dock pops up as you try to place tiles from your tray to the board, needlessly delaying and detracting from gameplay. Sometimes the game is minimized which is even more annoying. It’s most frustrating during a Lightning game when time is of the essence. Zynga NEEDS to fix this issue.
Ads are annoying!! 4/5
Wish we could opt out of ads - maybe by purchasing an upgrade....
Favorite app 5/5
This app just keeps getting better. It is the only game I play and it is a fun way to keep in touch with friends and family! Great job developers!!!
How do you get rid of them please
Great game by the way.
Love the game, hate the pushing 4/5
I love both versions of WWF. I wasn’t crazy about the new version when I tried it but learned to appreciate all the options and rewards but the constant harassing about the side games gets old. The latest one Princess Bride is the worst. It starts games I don’t want. It’s constantly adding a board I don’t want to play. Don’t ruin the fun we love with the pressuring to play the various options. Let us choose to participate instead of the insistence. Let us enjoy what you have made great. The loss of a star is due to the frustration. Give me back my five star fun.
Annoying ads with no way to remove 1/5
By Professor G.
You get served an obnoxious ad after
And there’s no way to get rid of them.
A once great game has plummeted to millennial and ADHD pandering 1/5
By David Meier Smith
So the latest update I’m forced to get now gives me a constant bombardment of badges and awards and silly eggs that you earn to pander to the ADHD and prize craving generation. I just want to play the game. Now features I previously had have to be “earned” with eggs and silly prizes and awards. I’m constantly now having to wait for silly pop ups and “emotional validations” of how good in doing. Really! What is this world coming to? I only want to play with my friends. This game practically pushes you to be “social” and “share”. Read the privacy statement! I removed all my personal info. I do NOT want it shared with the world. Do people really crave so much validation and “prizes”? Let me just play the game as I always have. Previously five stars... now one. Pathetic. I may download another word game. One not pandering to a crowd of people that can’t maintain their concentration for longer than a minute.
Nickel and dime the players. 1/5
This update is trash. The developers are finding more ways to nickel and dime players as much as possible. Less rewards. Longer wait time for solo challenge. It’s all very frustrating. Coin bonus use to be 15 per day now it’s 2 per day.
Words with friends 2 3/5
Did not get the Horse badge after completing the game...
Having other problems too...slow returning to play with other players...
Your Ad lock up 3/5
There are certain ads that lock the app that’s gives no choice to delete the app and download it again.
Please advise your developers.
Recalibrate badge goal 3/5
Once I achieved 20,000+ and I am regretting it as it continues to be the goal week after week with little ability to attain it. Please make the weekly goal no higher than what is achieved each week.
Customer Service is Terrible (Bayani M. is no help) 1/5
This game is terrible. I wasted a bunch of time and energy beating the hardest solo play opponent only for the game to glitch and not give me my rewards. I reached out to Zynga and got an email from “Bayani M.” only to tell me the problem was fixed, when it really wasn’t. I followed all of the trouble shooting steps and the game still didn’t give me my rewards. When I emailed Bayani M. back about the problem persisting, I didn’t get a reply. Don’t waste your time and energy playing this game. Customer service is terrible!
Not for me 1/5
More updates, more bugs 2/5
By Zeb E
Lately it’s been involuntarily opening another page to the App Store soon as you try to make a move. I close the page out, then it goes right back. Does this over and over. Been doing this on and off since the last update.
I’ve always enjoyed scrabble. This is a great way to play without the messy tiles and board and I understand the need for ads. $$$. But if there’s no ad, you play and the screen goes blank. Exit out. Open app. Game returns. There’s an ad, the ad takes forever, ugly spinning wheel. Exit out. Open app. Game returns. Rinse repeat. Makes for an awful user experience. I’m enjoying the games but debating to delete the app in favor of anything else.
Causes problem with hearing aids 5/5
Great game. 5 stars. BUT when app is open it mutes my hearing aids and turns off my tv adapter connection - so I can’t play while watching tv. I have sounds turned off. For all other apps hearing aids are not muted unless sounds are actively being played. Like in YouTube - does not mute until video played - then unmutes when video stopped. Even just going to Words in the App Store mutes!
Please fix this problem! You’re the only app that does this.
Too many ads! 2/5
I love this game but it is a pain getting ads after every move. There have been times when I couldn’t close the ads and get back to the game. I would pay to have this game without the ads.
Too Busy! 1/5
I just want to play Scrabble. I don't need all the activity and such. I deleted and went back to the Classic.
Glitches and crashes 2/5
By DanB Goad
I had to uninstall and then reinstalled it several times before I got rid of it 🙄I really like this game but people cheat using non-words w/no meanings and that’s not cool ☹️😩😫
Great Game! Good fun! 5/5
I’ve played this game for a couple of years. I love this game! I’ve had no problems or issues with this app. The app works great! Thank you for a great app!
Super annoyed 1/5
Enjoy the solo challenges, but went to finish tonight and they cut it short a week...I only had ONE to go for the extra points! That is the 2nd week in a row it’s done this. Secondly, why must there be ads after every single play? Some of the ads have even embedded themselves in the middle of a game so when I try to place a letter OOOPS! I’ve clicked their ad. That is unacceptable!!!!
Does not work in IPhone X 1/5
I have the paid app and it doesn’t even load
No more ads 2/5
Love the game, hate the ads. Please, please offer a paid version!
Solo Challenge 4/5
I enjoy the Solo Challenge but a couple of improvements / corrections.
1) When you win the last challenge, rather than saying “You reigned” it says “You resigned” which is the opposite of what happened.
2) It would be nice if when you clicked on the name of person that is the challenge, it provided just a brief summary of who they were and what they achieved to be included in the challenge.
“Slow” Lightning Round 3/5
Started playing Lightning Round and it has been very slow lately and the players have no choice but to lose their turns. Please fix the bug. Thanks
Love this game but... 3/5
not updating properly.
I got notifications that it’s my turn to play but when I go in— there’s no games stating my turn. :/
Never had a problem before 1/5
With the first words with friends app i never had a problem with it loading. Now my father and I constantly have to refresh and even then sometimes it doesn’t say one of us has taken our turn. Used to love this game, now not so much.
Dictionary failure 1/5
I’ve been playing this game for years and am tired of seeing more fake words being accepted in the game. Use a dictionary, not acronyms.
Could be great 2/5
Main issue is performance, just glitches and freezes all the time. Ads are annoying, offer a paid version without ads.
Poor response 2/5
Game is so slow. Waiting forever to get another players word and not my internet connection..
Option to make it less busy? 2/5
I like both Solo and playing with friends and relative. But, I don’t enjoy all the animations, and am not amused by winning prizes. I have paid to eliminate the ads. Can there be a setting that isn’t quite as busy and lets me play Solo games without waiting or having to have a certain # of points?
I’d go back to WWF1, but I’ll bet you will stop supporting it soon :(....
Coins disappeared! 2/5
Logged off then back on and my 600+ coins disappeared. Downloaded the ‘upgrade version’ now I can’t even log in! UGH
Love the game 5/5
I’ve been playing for years. I love the game and play many people at a time. We should be able to resign a game without taking it as a loss. Some people play and then stop for long periods of time. We should be able to end the game so we can start another one with someone that wants to play. Or if someone gets nasty you should be able to resign also without it being a loss.
Lightening round 1/5
Issues with round waiting & waiting.
Love the game, hate the ads 3/5
Please add an ad free option. I will gladly pay to get rid of the ads. They are driving me nuts.
Occasional bad ads 3/5
Love this game. Play with several people. However, on occasion the ads will cause the game to freeze and I have to delete the game and reinstall it. Annoying when I have to do it several times a day. Was working for a while but now must have a new advertisement that once again freezes the game and it has to be deleted and installed again. Most annoying.
Was great, constantly changed for the worse 2/5
Original game was great. Constant updates add annoyances, interruptions and cheapen whole game. Please remove unnecessary fluff and cheats (let’s call them what they really are) like word-radar and others.
There are a couple of ads that play and then cover the screen and you can’t close them. You have to uninstall the game and reinstall. Where is the ad free version??
Original was much better 3/5
The game is still great, but the coins, rewards, and all the other stuff is just annoying. It would be nice if there was a way to just play the game without being bombarded with crap.
Very unhappy with new version 1/5
It appeared I was forced to go to this version when I was no longer able to connect with the original words with friends. It has so many bells and whistles that I am not interested in that I cannot seem to get to the games that I am in the process of playing.
makes up words 3/5
The game is fun and all but in practice words, the computer is allowed to use words that aren’t actually words at all, like “UNDE” or “YIRD” for example.
Game is great...bells & whistles very annoying 1/5
All the feature pop ups are just annoying. Why can't we turn this nonsense off?
Classic is best 1/5
By The Carrie
I hated the update. It seemed much more juvenile than the classic version. In addition, there were technical difficulties. It didn’t show up in my app list for notifications. So I was never notified when it was my turn. I went back to classic once I saw that I was able to do so.
