Unknown words! 3/5
Why is it that the system can play unknown words and you look it up in the dictionary and it says it’s not a valid Word’s with friends word?? Had that happened several times. Also I tried to play the word Capri which we all know is a word and it said not a valid word!🙄😠 UNFAIR!!! I also noticed my coins decreased without me even playing.
Fun Game but I wish I could disable chat 3/5
I’ve been playing this game for years but now I see its being used by those overseas as a dating site. I have had to block 3 people in the past 2 days. If I’m not able to disable chat I may have to find a new word game.
Words with friends is an interesting and engaging game that challenges the mind and entertains your game pallet. The colored tiles are a nice touch but the tile swap without penalty cheapens the game. The word rarity feature also increases the game’s interest. Overall, it’s an enjoyable game but it could use something more visually exciting than colored tiles.
Nothing more than a dating app 3/5
Tired of being harassed by guys who want to chat. It’s ridiculous. Deleted.
Black screen 2/5
Lately, instead of the usual commercials after playing a game, I am getting a black screen which doesn’t go away. So then I have to exit out and reboot my phone to be able to continue playing. It’s very annoying!
Ugh Ads.... 3/5
The game is fun but sometimes the ads do not have an exit which then requires the game player to go to whatever is advertised. I am not interested in the game enough to purchase it. Paying the price in a different way.
Love but annoyed 4/5
This is my favorite game but there are glitches. When I do solo challenge the opponents are able to use words that aren’t words. Once the opponent used Je and when I clicked on it the dictionary told me it wasn’t a word but the opponent was able to score a triple word with it. The other time was Taber. The definition of taber is “...Mrs. Taber...” Just annoying
ONLY VOWELS 1/5
Every game I literally get all vowels with MAYBE 1-2 consonants. I literally have to be the most creative person in the world just to come up with a word. And the only consonants I get are usually “Q” or “Z” like what is wrong with the technology?
Doesn’t accept all US English words. 3/5
I love playing the game, unfortunately it doesn’t accept all the words in Webster’s Dictionary. Only take Oxford dictionary which is UK English.
Please let me opt out of the childish crud 2/5
I am not 9 years old. I do not want the cutsie crap ruining my enjoyment of your game. Some people may like the mystery boxes and coins. I do not.
Vanishing game 3/5
Played 4-5 words in a game and overnight, entire game vanished! Is this common?
Keeps Freezing 1/5
Every time It says to claim my prize, I click on it and it gives me 3 coins and 2 choices: Great or Watch Video for 3 More Coins (or some amount). But “Great” does nothing, only “Watch video.” So I have no choice. I watch the same 30 second commercial time and time again. When it finishes, it goes right back to the choose option screen again. It is a maddening cycle.
My comments 5/5
By Alison Dancer
Top scores are insane..no way to get score on one word over 500! Also should not allow English words without definition or reject IQ or OK..words where common spelling is anagram like NATO.
Glitchy or just randomly unfair? 1/5
I’ve had people play words like JE and OU against me, and when I try to play the same word, it doesn’t accept it. I’ve got a couple words for the developers: BULL. SH*T.
Love this app 5/5
Makes me feel like I’m challenging my brain
Don’t play solo challenge 3/5
The ten levels of solo challenge are completely engineered to favor the generated opponent. While they get round after round of high value letters, you’re stuck with crap. There’s no knowing whether they are getting all new letters every round or if they really have to play with random draw. The words that they use are so uncommon they seem to be made up. Not worth the aggravation.
Flaky app 1/5
I get the screen going black often after playing. Also, I hate the daily ‘gifts’ that hinder playing. I deleted it. Hate it compared to the first.
I agree with Marybiz 4/5
Don’t accept words that do not have a definition.
Death by advertisements 1/5
Zynga couldn’t care less if you enjoy their game, as long as they can cram in as many ads as possible. I’ve never seen a game this loaded down with advertisements. They used to have a paid version to eliminate ads, which I would gladly drop a few dollars on, but they removed that when they realized they could squeeze more out of you by having you buy coins in the game’s store and the occasional “no-ads” power-up.
The last straw came when the ads started playing sound with voiceovers trying to sell you scams and other garbage, despite having TURNED OFF SOUND IN THE SETTINGS!
Would not recommend
Requiring players to purchase coins to play is not liked nor wanted! I started playing in 2012, had more players to game with. Each new version has cost a few players to play, I loved playing with so many players, no ads was the only purchase I ever had to make, I lost almost 70 badges, Why can’t you offer the old version so we have a choice? I really miss those friends I’d played several years!!!!
Greedy AF! 1/5
Hate this freaking game. They do everything in their power to make you spend money. It's freaking trash. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION to not have ads. Hope ridiculous is that??? AVOID AT ALL COSTS! An ad comes on after EVERY SINGLE MOVE! They keep raising the prices of the add-ons! Swaps+ went from 75 coins to 100 coins. These people are greedy AF!
Game freezing 1/5
There is one add that causes WFF2 to freeze! It is annoying. I am considering uninstalling this app for good. Too much hassle.
Drop the “Add-ons” 4/5
Would prefer to get back to the basic game and avoid all the “add-ons” like badges, medals, unsolicited games with strangers, etc.
Need an opt out of rewards 1/5
I really don’t like that there is no opt out of rewards - I just want to play the game and it takes forever to load, is unresponsive and continually interrupts my games with rewards that I don’t want. I can’t turn it off and I don’t understand why they won’t give us the option to stop these insipid rewards.
Just call the game ADS 1/5
By Will Money💵
Every submitted move is met with an add. It didn’t used to be so blatant. Seems they’ve gotten money hungry.
Please fix 1/5
Please fix this game. Too much down time waiting for the game to work through the unneeded “prizes”
By Janet Kindle
I love the game but it periodically gets stuck after I click on the daily rewards. It shows rewards and challenges in the upper right corner but when you click on it nothing happens. I have deleted the app and reloaded but it’s happened again please fix this.
Get RID OF THE REWARDS! 1/5
I loved this game but made the mistake of upgrading to the newer version. I paid for no ads but now they have these ridiculous infantile “rewards” and “gifts” that pop-up and take forever and you can’t get rid of them! They are as bad as the advertising that I paid to get rid of. The next version will probably allow you to pay more to get rid of the annoying pop-up rewards. Who thinks of these things?
BRING BACK THE OLD VERSION PLEASE!
Too much 1/5
They raised the price of power ups! Which is ridiculous. Customer service is horrible. I love the game itself but the rest is too much
Words has worsen 2/5
I have been a long time user of WWF. Now I cringe every time I sign in. I paid for the app years ago. The feature of rewards and challenge pop ups like I have ads in the app despite purchasing it. I want the option to turn that feature off. It is so annoying.
Can I send you a picture that demonstrates this? My opponent played ESE. The very next move I tried to play the same word and it wouldn’t let me; it indicated it wasn’t a word. I took a pic of the board that shows this. Strange that it allows it once, but not another time.
Love it, but it’s inconsistent 3/5
By Tommy Bahama
I’ve been playing WWF2 since it was released. Love to play it, but it’s inconsistent with its rules.
Latest issue I’ve seen is that it sometimes allows JE as a word, when combined with another word (e at the end of unyoke), but JE has never been allowed, and if I try to play it stand-alone it is rejected.
Now, JA is being allowed inconsistently.
Seriously, your code must be searching a defined, sorted list of words. How can it miss these?
Invalid words? C'mon... 3/5
Can someone explain to me why 'Japan' is a valid word, but 'Europe' or 'European' is not? I had an opportunity to score 143 pts by hitting 2 TW tiles.
LOVE this game. But seriously? 😒
Love this game but they recently made the fun solo challenges much harder and also need to score more now for 2 and 3 stars I use to get 3 stars a lot but not anymore.
Increase in Scam Players 2/5
Love the game, but you need to do something about your security practices. There are way too many people trying to work scams through this game. The most recent using a Google photograph of a US soldier with last name of Good on his uniform. Trying to pull off that he is a 3 star general in Afghanistan, originally from NY, but has horrible English. Shame on you! Please get this stuff fixed so we can enjoy playing the game in peace.
The game stopped working for me so I reinstalled it and now it will not let me log back in. It keeps saying there is an error with the server. I’ve already filled out their form twice for technical support and nothing helps.
Too many made up words 1/5
The solo challenge is fun - until you get to the “hard” level. It is definitely hard - there are words that are made up and do not have a definition when you use the dictionary in the app - and there are words that are foreign - or old English/Latin! Unfortunately- only the robot can use these words - the real people playing the challenge cannot make words up. I’d be happy if these words were removed and more modern/or real words were the only ones used...
Great game, but power ups aren’t cool. 4/5
By Ralphh machio
The new Holi pack for 10.00 is not worth it. The tiles look terrible in the game. Not at all as cool looking as the image you see to buy it.
I’ve never liked the power ups. It’s cheating. I only use hindsight to see what words I missed...
Other than that it’s an extremely fun game! Highly recommended.
Keeps freezing up 5/5
The game keeps freezing. Cannot play one move without having to close and reopen.
Shortly after this review, as I kept going back to reinstall, an update button became available which seemed to resolve the problem
Solo challenge 3/5
Love playing words and the solo challenge. But you need to let us know how the stars work. Can play all seven letters or 100 point word and not even get a star. Can play 20 point word and get one.. confused.
Greedy & childish 1/5
The development team keeps thinking of ways to make the game worse. Let’s face it, the developers are NEVER going to reverse the frequency/length of ads or price to remove ads/cost of power-ups to cheat. I swear, this game must be overseen by a bunch of overgrown children.
•••Made up words allowed, real words that cause bad feelings are not (ughhh)
•••Some proper nouns, abbreviations, . acronyms, and foreign words allowed
•••Childish animations and mini challenges
•••Features that cannot be turned off
•••Rigged algorithm for tiles
Don’t even bother with the Solo challenge or Live nightly, they are just rigged anyway.
By the way, the developers can not prevent the trollers from creating profiles, but be smart folks (mostly ladies), these guys are not looking to date, they will want you to somehow send money to them. Be smart, learn to recognize them or turn off the chat feature.
Long boring repetitive ads 4/5
By row i
It is what it is! Yes, the unheard of words that have no definition but are allowed is annoying-and “dido” a historical person-how is that allowed? I play with the ads, which for the most part are quite well made and interesting and only ten seconds. But now there is an annoying (just loud slow circus music while a handless thumb presses cartoon game pieces) in a THIRTY second add for “toonblast” game that repeats after every game of words with friends. It is no longer worth playing wed-to have to deal with this repetitive boring long ad over and over.
Not as fun 2/5
I used to play more but they changed the challenge levels of the solo games. It is supposed to start easy and get harder but now it just starts hard and keeps being hard all the way though even though it says the first levels are supposed to be easy. I tried to let them know this changed a few rounds back but was blown off with “yes the Ai’s can be challenging”. They aren’t supposed to be challenging at the easy level. That’s why it’s easy...
Now I just play a few people but it’s not really holding my interest anymore.
Family Fun 5/5
By Window shopping for your mind
Fun to play with family. Communicate with family and friends near and far
Why did you feel the need to raise the price on WWF coins 2/5
What were you thinking when you raised the price of your coins on WWF? I am puzzled. Arent you making enough money anyway? I , for one, am very upset. If you would take a moment and explain your reasoning, that would be one thing. However, by trying to make your increase without any explanation is about as low as it gets. Another thing....why allow so many foreign words and not others? You are not consistent and definitely not fair in this regard. There are also many words used in our day to day lives and conversations that are not allowed. Tase, taser, as well as many other words used today come to mind. Please explain. Thank you.
Great game, but.... 4/5
There are two issues I have with this game. The SOLO challenge is impossible to win. Why do I want to play an un-winnable game?
Also, I am extremely tired of men trying to get my personal information or get me to join other sites.
Ads are NOT appropriate 1/5
We downloaded this based on the 4+ age rating and found pornographic and sexual ads for games called Moments and Choices. Very upsetting!!!
