Zynga has taken what was a fun and challenging game to the depths of yuck. This began as a competitive as well as educational game. It has lost that focus. At one time, Standings were live, a player’s points were cumulative, and weekly results were available. None of that remains. Additionally, players are teased to buy cheating plug-ins; indeed one opponent’s vocabulary soared. When I realized she had began using a cheating upgrade, I dropped her as a foe. Save your money if you have any competitive hankerings.
This is one of the most popular apps and has been around forever but their dictionary has massive gaps—so many words that they claim are valid but they cannot define. Their competitor Lexulous has a much better dictionary and is less frustrating. Words accepts many two-letter words that are not valid Scrabble words. The developers are more concerned about monetizing the game so they are constantly trying to get you to cheat with things like Word Radar. And they annoy you with games within the game in which you accidentally spell words thar you cannot see. Who cares? I hate that the developers do not care about the integrity of the game. If they want to add something users care about they could add a lead change tracker for each game.
Too busy. Always trying to met me to start another game when I have those options turned off. Now there's another pop up call Next Game. Can’t get that turned off.
I enjoy planning the game but am getting tired of ads that won’t go away. Usually 20-30 seconds but it is still difficult yo get back to words Also I only wan5 to play with who I choose not the others that pop up. Please make some changes
Recent upgrades caused my games to disappear with friends in Australia. Can’t get any support from tech center. What is going on ...
Please roll back to the old version that I paid for without ads. This game was fun because I was able to purchase the ad free version and just play the game. Now this game has ads and a lot of other not needed bloat ware please please go back
Zynga keeps adding garbage to this game. Many of us would like to just play simple, bare-bones games with our friends who have no interest in cheating, badges, traps to trick to play games with strangers or against the computer, and all this malarkey added over the years.
Oh Words With Friends, what happened?? Used to be a classic Scrabble game, fun to play with friends and now we are all so sick of the badges, pop-ups, congrats, daily goals and other super annoying so called extras that just slow the game down and make it awful to play. None of these things can be turned off in settings, and I have used the paid version of this game for years so I should be able to. I know I am not alone. With every update something worse is added. Today’s new annoyance is the game doesn’t allow you to just go to the next game like before, now it suggests other people to play with, can’t turn it off. Zynga needs to read these reviews. Also, what’s up with the words that aren’t real words (according to the game), but can be played anyway?? And some of the definitions of words are downright BIZARRE. So disappointed in the direction this game has gone. On the hunt for another word game for grown-ups.
WWF is fantastic because it’s challenging, doesn’t require a timed response, and keeps one’s mind sharp. You can play with an opponent a world away, or across the table. Unlike the popular board game it was based on, it requires no setup, and awards and tallies points automatically. I typically have as many as a dozen games in process.
My friends is constantly getting stuck. Lost my last word play now I have to start all over. Very disappointed
