Sometimes ads load and stay on the screen, making the game impossible to play.
Latest upgrade stinks for me. 1/5
After the upgrade, WWF won’t open on my iPad.
Re: new upgrade 3/5
I love this game but I hate the look of the new upgrade. Don’t want to use some of the features and can’t figure out how to get rid of them. Such as rewards purchase, solo game, Smart match, practice mode. Right in the middle of the page are two sections Caterer Ceaser and Smart match.
Liked the old look bring it back please
It’s not “smart” anymore 3/5
By Opus Fader
This IS a great game.
I provided 3 stars due to the “acceptable” word list. “JEZAIL” is not a word. In the game, the definition provided states it’s an acceptable word and offers no definition.
This is one of hundreds, if not thousands of bogus words the game accepts. DUMBING DOWN A GAME DOES NOT MAKE THE PLAYER SMARTER.
A perfectly acceptable ACTUAL word that is not acceptable is “Jew”. Go figure.
Thanks for listening.....
I have purchased the “remove ads” in the past, and now it is unavailable, it doesn’t let me restore the purchase. I can’t even watch the ads, which are after every turn, because they freeze. I wouldn’t mind it because all ads are 5-30 seconds long, but having to close the game and reopen it every time an ad pops up is too much. @zynga FIX YOUR GAME.
I love this game....BUT 3/5
I constantly have to restart my phone to play. It has a LOT of adds and constantly says “no connection” so that I have to turn my phone off and on to play. SUPER annoying....🤬😠😫
Words with Friends 1/5
This updated new version to the classic version is awful. Tired of the messy pages, ads and constant freezing. Why do you employ millennials to make...improvements? They can’t even handle life let alone what others like or enjoy. I will play out the people I am playing with and then deleting the game. I have played one person for four years and will miss our occasional emails thru the game. I am so not happy but will find a comparable game move on to!
Constantly have to delete and redownload because it says no cOnnection but I do have connection!!! 😡
Love the game but please ditch offensive ad about Joe Manchin 4/5
...seriously, I’m going to stop playing until I can be sure I won’t ever again see that offensive, untruthful ad about WV sen. Joe Manchin’s stand on immigration policy. Especially at this moment, when children are being separated from their parents and caged along the border, it’s appalling to see an ad urging me to call my Senator and insist that he support even harsher border policies. Really, developers: do you want to be associated with xenophobic, cruel organizations? I wonder about your own ethics when I see that you allow these ads to appear on your game.
What happened to this fave?!? 1/5
I used to enjoy WWF as my go-to app while waiting/by myself. Or my husbsnd and I would play and challenge each other. What is with the ads?! The same Pampers ad over and over again is making me insane! I would much rather buy my way out of this insanity!! How?? Please tell me how I can buy this app and never see another ad again. We don’t use diapers my kids are in their 20s!!! 😩😩😢😢😢
Moo moo moo 2/5
New version is slower and says welcome cmeb4uleave every time I enter. They have added achieve blank score this week. And telling me who's online and start a game. Stuff coming down the top, bottom, and now the middle in addition to ads. Drains my battery, patience, and time. One large interrupting cow.
The upgrade makes you tap twice to get daily coins--boo. At if we're not tapping enough.
Next Button 3/5
The “Next Button” isn’t working. Have the the home screen button & close it out & go back into the game.
When playing 2 or more games have to get out of app to be able to play next game. Screen freezes.
UGH - rewritten 3/5
By Mum to Dogs
Paid so I'd not have ads (didn't in the first version anyway) and it so chunk full of crap it is just like having ads. I just want to play the game, not navigate threw all the junk and boxes and pop ups to try and find my games. It makes me sea sick first version they made was awesome....this version stinks!!!!!🤢 ETA: it’s better, but still gets upset that some American English words are not allowed, but many foreign words, like from India, Africa, and even from Arab countries, are okay. And now abbreviations? Those were never allowed in the real game that I remember. And now they allow words with no definitions. What’s that all about? QUIT TRYING TO MAKE ME ASK STRANGERS TO PLAY. QUIT TRYING TO FORCE ME TO PLAY WITH FRIENDS I DON’T WANT TO PLAY WITH. We should be able to turn off such things. AND...when you update please say what you are changing. “Making it better”tells me nothing!
Latest bug fix on Words with Friends 1/5
I have deleted my game from my iPad as the latest "bug fix" gave me a game that was NOT what I originally downloaded several years ago.
This supposed "bug fix" version is not one that I have enjoyed for years. Needless to say, I will not be playing this new improved "bug fixed" version. Too bad, the old version with all of its "bugs" was much more enjoyable.
I just went to open my classic words with friends games and discovered that in the few hours since playing last, the format has become the wwf 2 version which I don’t like! I purposely kept the original even after downloading the new one when it came out because I simply don’t like the white board and the graphics. Please allow choice! Truly not happy...always LOVED the game!
Terrible. Return to old style.
My favorite game of all time...ruined? 1/5
I love Words With Friends. LOVE IT!!
I play it every single day, and have for years. I play with my wife, and we have enjoyed playing it together for more than five years. But Zynga has been doing their level best to ruin it.
I bought the paid version more than five years ago to get away from all the ads, and now Zynga is trying to force me to upgrade.
They are constantly prompting me to update to Words With Friends 2. I get “No connection” messages every day now. I get messages about upgrading that won’t go away. I have to close the game and reopen it to get past the messages.
My favorite game has become a horrible experience.
Absurd number of ads! 2/5
I cannot believe this game, which would otherwise be rather enjoyable, does not allow an option to purchase an ad free version 🤬 I would happily pay a few dollars to be able to play in peace! There are a couple of other small things I don’t particularly like, such as the swap+ feature, but the inability to play ad-free is quickly driving me away from this game...
No internet connection with update. 1/5
I updated this app and now it won’t connect to the internet. I have an IPhone 6.
Hate the new updates 1/5
Opened the game today to find you had updated it without asking. I hate the swap tiles, and the board and the fact it now takes no skill. All they want you to do is get a higher score. I am finishing these last few games and going back to Scrabble until you put back a classic game
Rigged game 1/5
Algorithm is bad. Allows hackers to win.
Game ruined 1/5
By The Kato3000
The latest update has completely ruined this game by adding all types of nonsense and ads that literally no one wanted. Deleted.
Fun game but toooooooo many ads 3/5
I’ve had fun playing this game for years! Put up with the ads in between games because some were mildly entertaining, like a regular tv commercial. But now the ad banner has been added across the playing screen. I can’t see scores or who I am playing and it covers the entire top the screen and will not go away. Covers my menu completely! Not thought out at all! Very annoying!!!!!!!!!!!! Make it go away or you’ve just lost a player!
My app was updated last night. I despise it. I don’t need coins and daily prizes. I don’t like the look, it locks up, I can’t move on to the next game, not happy
Great Game, but one glitch 4/5
I really enjoy playing Words with Friends — it truly is a fun game!! One glitch that the company should to address: For the past couple of months (May/June 2018) or so, the game goes blank after playing it, closing it, then coming back to play it later. It gives a white screen with a red bar across the top indicating “No Connection.” I can get rid of it by turning off my iPhone and turning it back on, but somewhat of a nuisance of course.
Hate the new version 1/5
By Flu Zee
I HATE THE NEW VERSION of this game that I have been playing for years!!!
May actually be ready to quit. Zynga seems to always kill a good game for me.
Words with friends 4/5
I am having trouble writing comments to fellow players. My keyboard bounces up and down. Any ideas
No Connection 2/5
Attention Game Developer:
I just came back to play this game after not playing for quite some time, only to find every time im going to play i get “ no connection” and have to uninstall and reinstall the game. Whats going on? I would also like to add, i paid for the upgrade to avoid the ads and the game doesnt work like it’s supposed to.
Ill increase my rating once this is fixed because i do enjoy playing.
Stick to basics 3/5
By Houston Husker
I have been playing Word for years. It is a great game but each new version is more cluttered with junk. The game is being lost in the midst of all the other activity on the board which has become a distraction and annoyance. Please make just a simple, no cheat version available to players who do not want a bunch of bells and whistles.
WHEN I HAVE SOUNDS MUTED DONT PLAY NOISE!! 1/5
I’m so sick of this behaviour- I have sounds set to OFF in settings. I have my phone on silent. And still the ads come through with sounds. Seriously guys, fix this behaviour!!!
HATE that some ads freeze my iPad. Would pay for an ad-free version if one was available at a REASONABLE price. Ads are long, frequent and frustrating. Ready to move on to a paid scrabble version.
Enough. I quit. 1/5
I have played WWF every day for years. But some of the recent ads have disturbed me. As I wait for the ad to play out, I was shocked to see a man with his pants pulled to his feet, sitting in the toilet. You have crossed the line.
Hate the new design 1/5
Loved the game (and have been playing it daily, for years), but I hate the dramatically redesigned new version so much I am deleting it. I’ve been trying to just get used to it, but it’s so cluttered with pop-up and unwanted crap, I can’t play without distraction.
Still needs work with iPhone X 2/5
Great game, but unfortunately, this version of words with friends is not optimized to work with the iPhone X. When you select the option to select a new word (which sometimes happens by accident), there’s no way to get out of this screen. Also, app goes into landscape mode and gets stuck on some commercials. I have to leave the app and come back for the commercial to finish and return to the game.
Words With Friends 2 3/5
I’m not the best player in Words With Friends but I enjoy playing it. I have Parkinsons and it takes me a long time to make my move. As a result I don’t get very many points each week.
Which means I can’t get the Weekly Challenge.
This is especially true now since you changed the number of points that you need to get a badge. I think it is very unfair to go from 100 points to 300 points. Please go back to the old way it was!
Do I or don’t I have a message? 1/5
I have watched friends reply to my messages (little cloud with flashing dots) while playing the game and waited to see the message and never receiving it. Today I messaged a friend, saw the cloud with the flashing lights, even got the trumpeted fan fair that I received a message with the #1 in it and NOTHING. This isn’t the first time.
No connection 2/5
For some unknown reason, this app opens about every 10th time with a “No Connection” entry. I have to turn my iPhone off and then on again to get the app to open. I don’t think it is my iPhone as I have no other problems within opening apps.
ad glitch 1/5
after every play i get an ad that never starts which makes me have to close the app… every time i finish a round. there’s no way to purchase ad free either
Hate it 1/5
It does not have the features described, no word radar, hindsight, swap without losing a turn, or coins. I recently bought coins that I now cannot use. Plus, it is so slow that it is frustrating.
I have “no connection” with this game right now. 1/5
Same message different day. What is going on? When I try to open this game I have a “ no connection” statement. I have internet service. Can you help?
Words with friends 2/5
I have not earned a badge since February 19.
Weekly goal set way too high... I had a prior freak win week
The same ad plays every time! It’s the most obnoxious ad ever for Pampers.
The adds in W.W.F. 1/5
By I hate words with friends
When I got this game it said add free. I played two rounds with my mom and in between every word, an ad would play. For the entire game, the same ad played every time. This stupid pampers ad! This game is nothing more than a waste of time and money.
I would have given five stars, the game itself is good.
Cons: The advertising is insane, I keep getting the same adds over and over, I don’t have infants, I don’t buy Pampers, I see this add constantly, I understand Ad supported but really, the same over and over and over again???
Bring back Mountain Goat Mountain 5/5
please bring back mountain goat mountain, it’s the best game you released. please.
Used to love this game now just ads 1/5
I have to watch a 5-10 second pampers ad after every single word I play, this used to be a fun game until it started mandatory video ads. If your phone is in power saver mode the ad will freeze and you have to shut it off just to play. I don’t mind ads when they change it up, but I don’t have a child or want pampers. Switch your ads or more people will delete this again.
Holy Ads & honest competition? 2/5
Every word played, an ad pops up. I dont know what they mean you can see the best word played, I cant check the rarity, definition/stats on the words played. Then, I find there is a cheat app. Which makes me sad & wary to play anyone. I would never use an app to win scrabble. Which this is. Pool hall rules one foot on the floor pls. I am a word smithy. READ miriam webster cover to cover & cannot verify but, sure a lot of word lookup before play is going on. It is cheating. So I only play in "practice mode" agin the game itself. ThenI know whas up. I would never chat w/strangers. Weird things always happen.
I gave this game one star and was notified that every “nickname” I selected was already taken. I enjoy playing in practice mode and with people I know. However, the game is designed to encourage play with strangers. Many of the challengers are creepy dudes who would rather chat than play and become verbally abusive if you don’t chat back. An option to opt out of the smart matches would be most welcome.
Hare your new private agreements 1/5
Am going to delete this app unless you give us the same privacy agreements that you gave Europeans.
