Wow! I could have written that review...spot on. I just want to play. I’m so sick of blah blah blah I ignore it all anyway as I impatiently wait for it to end..,
I agree with switcheroo 3/5
By Aunty Egg
The boxes jumping around, and the cutesy stuff is MADDENING. PLEASE GET RID OF IT
Can I Just Play a Simple Game? 2/5
Been using this app for several years. Paid to get rid of ads, but all the extra stuff is making the app so slow that I’m about to delete it for good. Please allow us to opt out of all the extra stuff. Thanks.
Slowest app 1/5
Takes over 2 minutes just to load. Going to next game takes two minutes..graphics load is even slower. I have deleted and reloaded this app several times...I’m switching to Scrabble to see if it works better
Stop all the side games 2/5
I just want go play Words with Friends. I do NOT want my games constantly interrupted by side challenges and games that I do not care about. I have deleted the app. Just not worth the frustration.
Disappointed ☹️ 2/5
This no longer lets me play videos for credits it keeps telling me to turn on data sharing and my data is always on very disappointed.
Stop changing interface 1/5
Fun until they change it around and make it ugly and hard to navigate. I guess they need to prove something, but please don t make it harder.
Too much 1/5
Why can’t we just play the game? Why all the extra stuff? I paid for no ads but have to wait for all the pop ups. Very frustrating. Makes me not want to play.
Please get rid of the auto-zoom feature 3/5
It drives me crazy when adding a tile to the board, it auto-zooms in so I can’t seem the rest of the board anymore. It often cuts off visibility to the rest if the letters I need to see to complete my play and I alway have to stop and zoom it back out.
It won’t allow me to sign in any longer
Love playing the actual games, but the ads are horrible! Somehow the volume on the ads will still play even when my phone is on silent!!!
Lost my words with friends Help😌 4/5
My new iPhone somehow transferred the app but it’s blank and all my long time words with friends are not there. Just a blank blue screen. I tried a new app with no luck.
What do think happened?
Can I recover my history?
Not what it used to be 1/5
I purchased this game years ago. But after accidentally upgrading it and experiencing the incessant bombardment of congratulatory remarks, accomplishment notifications, rewards, etc., I’ve become completely annoyed by this game. This was not what I signed up for when I paid and installed this game. I simply wanted to play scrabble with friends and relatives online. If I want to be interrupted all the time, I’d watch commercials on TV. If I want to wait, I’d go to the DMV. If I want to repeatedly receive unsolicited messages, I’d sign up for spam. Unfortunately, Zynga gave us the three things that ruin a good game: interrupt, wait, and display gratuitous useless information. For this reason, I am giving it an F. However, I will consider upgrading my rating if an option to disable these irritating features is implemented. Thank you.
Ads Ads and money hungry 1/5
You guys are money hungry. If your wanting us to pay 10.00 for something I’m not doing it monthly to keep ads off. And why do you have so many words with friends additions out there. You need to roll it into one get everything together and let people have some fun instead of charging them for everything good grief. I won’t be playing this any longer it’s not that fun. This app needs to be cleaned up. Do you guys even listen to feed back or care?
Deleting the app 1/5
By okayest reviewer
Loved playing this game, and I can deal with the animations between plays. Deleting because of the ads that override silent mode. I’m not turning the volume down and risking missing a notification I actually want because your stupid 30 second ads can’t behave the way every other ad in every other app do.
adore this game 5/5
honestly, it’s my favorite game on my phone. i play it loads, and it’s amazing. it’s easy to be on it for hours at a time. i love it, and it’s allowed me to not only have fun learning new words, but i’ve met some awesome people on here. :) definitely recommend it. i’ve seen loads of people say it’s annoying because of the ads, but they honestly don’t truly cause a problem for me. most of them are ones that just pop up and just need to be tapped once to get out of them.
I don’t want “tiles”!!! 4/5
I have been playing WWF for ten years. It’s been great. I’ve actually made new friends; one I hope to meet next year that lives in Australia (I live in Missouri, USA). However, if I have to keep going into my settings every time I play the game to get rid of the color tiles, I will quit playing! It’s driving me batty!!! Please make it stop! I don’t want it; did not ask for it! First time I have bothered writing a review if I recall. If not for this issue, WWF would get five stars. I might have to quit playing though.
Please stop mandatory sounds in Ads! 3/5
By Craig Alan
I get that you require ads in the free version, but there’s nothing worse than playing the game in a quiet place with your phone on mute to suddenly get bombarded with a loud ad! It’s enough to make me avoid the game completely. If my phone is on silent, please honor that in the app.
Addictive fun 4/5
If you enjoy word games, this is a great one. Fun to play, and good options to give you control over whether or not you want to chat with opponents. The addition of various challenges enhances this app. Unfortunately, the Duels fast play challenge is not working for me (iOS) now. It did in the past. Hoping that gets fixed. I like the option of Lightning Round, played with teams, as well as Duels, played individually but quickly. Other than Duels not working for me right now, the only thing that is a significant issue is when players use the cheat app. That pretty much ruins the fun for me.
I’m sick of getting challenges 1/5
I’m sick of getting challenges from complete strangers! This game is starting to get annoying. I only want updates when a friend has played their turn. Turn off all this extra crap!
My husband and I downloaded and started playing this game together at the same time. He mainly just plays against me, where as I play with anyone who sends me an invite. Though I play more, he was given a six level jump and is always being offered free extras (tile patterns, etc.).
Security breach 12.2019 3/5
Was notified of security breach of password. Occurred in Dec 2019. Haven’t used app in forever.
Good game of course.
Too much lag 2/5
I would play more often but it takes too long to load and the ads are too often and too long.
App crashes my iPhone and drains battery 1/5
I love playing this game but am not happy that it keeps crashing my iPhone and consuming a unrealistic amount of battery. Please fix this so I can play with my Mom
I CAN NOT BELIEVE AFTER THE 170 MILLION breaches to people who have played your games you all are still on here & have not contacted anyone, people have to find out through their credit monitoring system their info was or is on the BLACK WEB MARKET
The game is great, the extras are trash 2/5
Seriously, I just want to play words with friends. That’s it. I do not want all of your extra “bonuses” or “side games” with computers or to “win prizes”. I would pay money just to get all of that removed from my life. Please just make this app back to the way it used to be!
Give us a simple version 1/5
I hate all the clutter, stupid rewards, invitations to play strangers, and phony games. I just want to play the game with my own friends, and I would gladly pay for the privilege.
Major glitches 1/5
Game worked fine until this week. Now it won’t let me watch ads for coins. It doesn’t keep accurate count downs for solo games or daily bonus coins. Need bugs fixed badly. Sent customer support an email. No response or solution
Game lost 1/5
The wrong Facebook account keeps opening on the account. My original account was frozen. Wouldn’t complete the play. Very upset with this game.
Beware of Scammers in Chat Function 1/5
Please do not use the chat function of this game. There are scammers preying on older women (widows) and getting them to chat via the Hang Out app after they claim they cannot chat through this game anymore. It is sick to think that a great game and app is being used this way. This happened to my parter’s mother and it has been a nightmare. Please steer clear of any chat functions and do not give ANY personal information.
WARNING WARNING 1/5
By T dawg bro homie
The manufacturer of this game Zynga has had a data breach of all YOUR personal information. Check their website. I’ve spent weeks dealing with hacked accounts. Delete this game ASAP and change your passwords everywhere you use your email
If only they would remove the ads 3/5
The game play is fun and exciting. I really enjoy so many aspects of the game play with all the new features. Duela and solo are all excellent additions for true word lovers like myself. But for the love of God, remove the ads, pop ups, constantly flashy things! It slows up game play and completely alters the gaming experience. For the record ‘pop ups’ are annoying all the time. They are annoying between each game, between each move, when your loading the game, and when you playing one of the new features. I don’t know what marketing experts came to Zynga and said ok, you have all these players, what they want in addition to the game play is to be constantly bombarded with ads for other aps (that are almost always some type of rip off), and things they do not want or need. ‘ someone said ‘brilliant’ and they decide to implement it. There are ads and pop ups in the game and now you have an ad banner on top of the game with prevents reaching searching features without clicking on them. You must make a ton of money from this advertising. But Zynga has forgotten that without customers you can’t make money from advertising. This game went from something that everybody I know played to ‘😖are you still playing that!? ?!’ Finally, removal of the option to play without the ads was the lowest blow. I love the game but please stop with advertising. Despite what you believe we do not want to see advertisements every second we actually log into the game to play it!
All the extraneous crap needs to go! 1/5
I paid for the ad free game so that I can play the game without having to be interrupted. Instead I find myself interrupted MORE frequently with “congratulations” or “you’ve play 4 letters in the [frickin] word of the day” or “oooh you I licked more coins”. If I wanted coins I’d play super Mario brothers.
Please, there HAS to be a way for (presumably valued) paid customers to opt in or out of all these in app notification. Some people might like them I suppose but the just have me looking at that formerly fun W and deciding it’s not worth the crap to launch the app.
This is NOT a new issue. You’ve gotten dozens of similar reviews. Fix it. Cmon.
Can’t we just play the game 3/5
The game itself is great, but all the extra stuff is so annoying. I don’t want rewards. I don’t want extra competition. I just want to play Words without waiting for the extra stuff to show up.
Commercial volume 2/5
When my phone and all volume settings in the app are set on silence, I better NEVER hear another commercial play again. If I do, this app will be DELETED! My settings are in silence for a reason. Not so you can take control of my device!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡
No fun 2/5
Really sad you’ve added so much extra baggage to what used to be a real fun game to play. Remember “kiss” — Keep it simple stupid! We do not need all those bells and whistles you’ve added! This is not a steampunk game!
Great game but a glitch 4/5
The game states that I received the daily bonus which helps earn the ability to change letters without losing a turn. It has been over a week since this feature worked.
Majorly disappointed! 2/5
By unhappy 1951
Please give me back the game I paid for several years ago. I do not want all the extra fluff and interruptions with challenges and supposed game enhancements. I just want to lay the game itself without all the extra fluff. It takes forever to load when I want to play, and freezes my iPad. No other app does that. My frustration level will not allow me to give a better rating.
Used to be great, ruined by cheat features 1/5
This was a really fun game to play, especially with friends. Now you need to obtain or purchase coins to use all the cheat features to have a chance to win. The final straw for me was Swap+. I think order of letters is rigged now, not random, to get users to use Swap+. Word radar and clue were bad enough, but now I have stopped playing. Bye!
Watch videos and earn points 3/5
By nona nana nina
I am so disappointed that the above is unavailable for me. It tells me to enable my roaming data. Brought it to the Apple store and they said it was the app’s problem and that all my settings are perfect. If this is not reinstated I will drop this game it is a matter of principal. I have been playing with no problem I hope you will advise me on this issue. Thank you
When I want to watch a video to get 3 extra points I get a notification saying “currently unavailable. To watch access to earn enable limited data sharing in settings.
I would appreciate you fixing this problem. I have spoken with Apple and they say it’s your issue.
Get rid of Rewards! 3/5
This is a great game except for rewards which pop up constantly. They need to be optional. They are silly and irrelevant. I hate them
I was caught by surprise when men started to message me. Started off asking where I was from and quickly turned creepy as they asked me to use other ways to chat, share pictures etc. this happened constantly.
Can’t even play a simple game without getting harassed.
Why am I getting the message: need to enable Limited Data Sharing to use watch a video
Message about videos 3/5
When it comes to watching the videos to earn free coins, now it’s saying “enable limited data” to watch the videos. This has been since yesterday! Please fix it!
Too Many Unwanted Features 1/5
By fiftieth time
I just want to play my games. I don’t want daily challenges, coins, rewards, badges, etc. it makes the app run so slow and is frustrating when you can’t place a tile because it’s glitching. At least offer an “opt out of rewards and challenges” button in settings.
I’m sitting here trying to figure out how I was beating someone by 40 points and she plays a word for her final word that gets 8 points but jumps her up to beating me by 16 points?
Was fine until the update 2/5
Sorry, but I hate it. Too many pop up suggestions. Some of which are difficult or impossible to decline
Extras ruined a pure game 1/5
Crap now. Lots of interruptions
