Ugly long ads 3/5
I would welcome a chance to pay for no ads since latest batch of looooong ugly game ads have spoiled my favorite game of Words With Friends.
Keeps crashing! 1/5
I haven’t been able to play in days because the app keeps crashing. I open the app, it seems to begin to load, and then...it’s gone. It just shuts off. I also HATE the ads. I just want the normal game! I would pay for it if it would be ad-free without all the other silly goals and competitions.
QUESTIONABLE WORDS ALLOWED ARE NOT WORDS!!!! 1/5
DUI & TFW are abbreviations!! They are not words!!!! I tried to use negro, which is a word and was not allowed! Talk about the game trying to be politically correct & censoring. Bunch of crap!! You should also be allowed to use foreign word in the English version! Too many ads that lock up and are 30 seconds long!! Because there are ads, I don’t watch them!!!! I put the phone down, so I have no clue what is being advertised!! Would never buy anything advertised on an App. Vendors are just burning their money!!!!! Don’t watch ads on tv either!! I buy what I need. The rest are wants!!!!!
This is not the game I used to love. 1/5
This is not Bothe game I used to play when Alec Baldwin got thrown off the plane. There are so many bells and whistles now that I cannot even figure out how to play a basic game. I feel like they have sold out.
Everything is gone 1/5
The issue with trying to edit and delete old games happened again so I logged out, logged back in..which was the specific fix that was recommend the first time it happened.. and when I logged back in EVERYTHING was gone. All my current games, all my coins, all the swaps I had collected, badges, achievements..everything. It also reset my 'player since' from the original year to 2019, and changed my username. If I try to edit my profile and change my username to the correct one, I get the msg that the user is already taken...yes, yes it is, taken by ME! These 'issues' are getting very, very old. I won't detail all the troubleshooting that I've already done. I am sending it in the 'contact us' from the game help center.
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 irrevelant.
Too many ads 1/5
No option to permanently remove adds
Fun...with a caveat. 4/5
Digital scrabble is, of course, fun. Unless, that is, you have “limit add tracking” on and they take it out on you by making the game really, really, really slow. They even send you messages that tell you as much. I would say just charge money for the game but obviously they make a ton more money selling your data to advertisers so there is no impetus to do this. It shows you where the real money is to be made with an app. Still fun to play
Freeze up 3/5
By REV. Todd
This app keeps freezing up. Please fix!
Game is Ruined 1/5
Why do you keep adding more and more crap?
We all just want to play the game without interruptions and without a bunch of useless bells and whistles.
I HATE the different colored tiles. It’s so distracting and makes it hard to see the word.
I, too, paid for ad-free gaming and now you’re forcing all this junk on me.
After 5 years of playing, I’m looking for a new game
This app constantly freezes my phone or crashes and closes itself. Great when it actually works but most of the time it glitches. Deleting.
Vowels & consonants 1/5
This game is totally defective! When I have all vowels my playing partner has all consonants and vice versa. Happens every single time! You need to fix this glitch or I’m done!
Ads and commercials 1/5
By Blood pressures up
You have got to be kidding me? An ad or commercial every single play or move? And then he want to charge 29 something dollars to remove all of them? Pretty ridiculous. How can one have any fun when they have to wait for an ad or commercial every single time? What a waste of time.
Too many EXTRAS 1/5
By Kansas Kay
I just want to play the game! I don’t like all of the extra bells and whistles you have added!
Love the game but a few problems 3/5
75 coins +10 coins does NOT equal 83
The update mentioned a new power up so I installed it on one of my devices.... no new power up available. Where is it?
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. With what you’re charging now, I would have uninstalled ages ago. But w/o ads 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.
extranneous garbage 1/5
get rid of the extranneous garbage
Used to be good but no more 2/5
This game used to be great. A simple scrabble-esque game. Now its all full of rewards and challenges, stars and diamonds, like its trying to be candy crush or something. It’s totally lost it’s raison d’etre. I’ve been playing for years but those years are coming to end.
PHONE FREEZES!! 1/5
FIX THE BUG that freezes my entire phone and remove ads!
CLEAN UP THE GAME AND LET US PLAY! 3/5
By X Noodle X
I’ve played this game for years, but it has gotten so bulky with the little prize badges, sound effects and bonus junk that the game has gotten slow, bulky and annoying. Now they changed it again eliminating the green tag indicating if potential word is highest score possible or if I should keep looking for a spot. I don’t care what color my tiles are, if I get a birthday cake badge or hear stupid chimes that I can’t easily turn off.
CLEAN UP THE GAME AND LET US PLAY!
Used to be fun but now it’s cluttered 2/5
WWF used to be really fun because of the simplicity of playing with friends with nothing to pop up except for 5 to 10 second ads. Ever since an update a couple months ago now there are more ads that are usually 30 seconds. Not only that but they added these “improvements” and challenges that interrupt matches. I like the idea of challenges but I don’t like the fact that they are forced to be reviewed and waste a good 10 to 15 seconds of your time just so you can see you completed them. And the last thing I have to complain about is that the game has been freezing my entire phone almost every other match. This is the only app that I have that does that and I have an iPhone 8 Plus. I don’t know what you did to your game in the last update but fix it because I am tired of my phone freezing for minutes. The only reason I haven’t deleted your game is because I still want to play with friends but your latest updates are really wanting me to delete your game and never touch it again because you guys have screwed it up really badly. The fact that you’re getting two stars is just out of pity Due to the fact that the game is still fun to an extent...
Useless - takes forever to play one word 1/5
All these pop up rewards and awards are ridiculous!!!
Great game but there is a terrible bug in it that locks up my entire phone for minutes at a time. I can’t ever get back to the home screen.
Why aren’t your developers profiling for this issue?? I’ve never seen a memory leak this bad.
Awful since "improvements added" 1/5
This game, which used to be great, is now garbageware. Don't waste your time.
Every Update Gets Slower and More Frustrating 3/5
I used to enjoy playing this app. But the developers have added so many gimmicks the program has to stop and think about that every time I submit a word that there is a pause of 10 to 20 sec. As of the last update the moves from the other players don’t show up immediately either. Even when I am trying to move letters to create a word there is often a pause of a few seconds before the letter will move.
I enjoyed the app much more when it was a straight forward exercise of vocabulary and logic without “prizes” and gimmicks giving extra advantages to a player.
If the performance and complexity of what was a very responsive and simple app gets any worse it will be unusable. I am about ready to remove it from my iPad.
By Ivy Isley
This word app game makes my phone freezes .
Too many ads now 3/5
The ads that pop up now are way too long
Remove it offensive images 1/5
By Annie's Stuff
REMOVE THE MUSLIM CHICK WITH THE HEADSCARF on my banner!!! DO YOU NOT REMEMBER 9/11/01????
You are becoming political...this is a GAME NOT A PLACE FOR SUBLIMINAL POLITICAL IMAGES OR SUGGESTIONS FOR ANYONE...ESPECIALLY YOUNG PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS WITHOUT BEING BLASTED BY SUGGESTIVE IMAGES!
Loyal supporter. Now THIRTY SECOND crap ads. Goodbye.
Taken out the fun of it 2/5
I used to really enjoy this game. Not any more. When I switched over to a new iPad, suddenly the game changed. It is the free version, but there are so many ads! It is so annoying! I also do not care for all the enhancements every time a play is made...all the bonuses, and awards, and stickers. Just playing the game WAS fun enough! Not now.
Too much going on ! 1/5
By Rochelle LM
So much going on that is totally unnecessary.
Get rid of some of the visuals please!
Ads destroy the vibe 1/5
You touch anything and have to wait 15 seconds for an ad to stop. 👎 total bummer.
Omg....FIX Practice Mode Already! 3/5
So sick of, “oops....something went wrong” error. Only way to clear those games is to disconnect from Facebook, Log Out and start over. Your last update caused more bugs than it fixed. Love the Classic version (5 stars) when it works right.
Please get rid of the challenges added to scrabble games! They slow the games down and are a constant irritant to what used to be a very pleasant experience!!
It keeps locking my iPhone 8’s plus up 1/5
By crafter ed
It keeps locking my iPhone up
And have to hold the power button and the home button for over a minute to get it to unlock
Too cluttered 1/5
What used to be a fun simple interface has become inconceivably cluttered.
I just downloaded the current version after being away for a few years, and am immediately deleting the app. The current version is just a piece of crap.
WWF stop trying so hard, your ruining the game. 1/5
I’ll make this short. Stop with all the stupid rewards, events, and crap in between playing a word. I just want to play the game.
This app is terrible now. Do many promos and pop ups and tile styles and add on games that I can’t even find the games.
I am an experienced player but I deleted the app.
Quit the idiotic “achievements “ & “goals”! 1/5
Sick and tired of these idiocies wasting my time! If they don’t add an opt out option soon I’m quitting.
Oops! Something went wrong! 2/5
Practice games keep locking up with no ability to resign or get the game off my board. Also miss the ability to watch a couple ads to receive coins on my bought and paid for game. More time fixing problems and less time developing cute new Ike’s. About o give up on you.
Inconsistently works 1/5
The play with someone else is reasonably consistent but the lightning round is terrible making you wait for your boards while the other team charges ahead. I have fiber optic, 81.5 Mbps connectivity......sad
By sln phone
I dont know who is making up this info on Words. Who on earth has ever scored 350 points with one word? The words that are allowed on this game are ridiculous. You allow words that arent words and don't allow ones that are.
Please give us the choice to opt out of all the silly prizes and goals, etc. They’re a waste of my time and I’m about to give up on Words with Friends.
Ads are obnoxious 1/5
I’m so frustrated with this app - the adds are a whole minute or more. I know you can pay to have them removed but it is just not worth it! I swear every ad I see, I promise I will not purchase just because it is so long! Will remove app soon!
By Awesome barb
I love this game so much. I'm a senior& it keeps me from being so lonesome.
I too am a senior(83) & I'm a widow. Please put this back on my IPad. I really spent a lot of time on it. I've been playing it over5 yrs.
Too much trash 1/5
Used to be a fun game. Now it just has too much trash happening. Seriously ruins the game. If you’re going to have all this crap clogging up the works, allow players to opt out of it.
By Flight Lady
I now actively HATE this game, made stupid by all the freaking gimicks.
I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL.
This game is now a mere ridiculous caricature of its former self.
DEVS: I hope you are happy$
I really really really don’t like the addition of *rewards* and mystery boxes which I care nothing about. I like to play the unadulterated version. I refuse to use the *see best moves* and *swap tiles without losing a turn*. But how do I know others I play with don’t use them? Way to spoil the game people, can’t we go back? PLEASE?
Should be called Anagrams as the list of acceptable “words” has grown to ludicrous levels. Loq, seq, and the like (how about obscure 17th century French dialect?) All acceptable plays.
Seq is an abbreviation of a Latin term. What’s next? Words found in Beowulf? Canterbury Tales?
You have ruined the game 1/5
By Deb. CWE
How do I return to just the game without all the prize crap?
