How many times does it take to tell you to get that stupid Spoonman Spenser off my screen and don’t bring it back! THANK YOU!!!!!!!
Would love the option to be able to sell or trade word radars etc. for coins or swaps etc.
STRIKE! STRIKE! STRIKE! STRIKE! STRIKE! Zynga took what was once a great game and turned it into cluster shuck of twaddle. It appears that Zynga is ignoring the unhappy masses who comment about an intense dislike of ad bombardment, permissible words and increasingly numerous, annoying extras cluttering the game. We need to go on playing strike until the developers listen. Zynga is losing players. How many times do any of us think... “I like repetitive ads”, “I enjoy having my game interrupted for reward updates”, “I wish Zynga implemented more taps to delay getting back to gameplay!”, “Why don’t they offer us more challenges to distract from game play?”, “I want more bouncing boxes!”, “I cannot wait for a few spare moments to open WWF to see what prize I must claim”, “Zynga should cram in one more thing at the heading”, “I can’t wait until I’m forced to collect apples or pumpkins, instead of seeds, eggs, mittens!”..etc, etc. Zynga claims these to be “exciting”. Ummm, no, it is NOT. It should now be called..Junk With Friends. People play less due to frustration- I see the star rating has DECREASED! **********WARNING*********** SAFETY—-Many players have noticed a recent surge of FRAUDS! Go ahead and google “Words With Friends Scammers”— plenty of info about it. Both men and women are targeted (especially women). I’ve gotten as many as ten bogus invites a day! Everyone needs to be aware of these scammers who immediately start chatting, frequently using “my dear”, “my darling”, “beautiful”, etc. They are easy to recognize:: really attractive (STOLEN) profile picture, the player recently began playing, very few wins or badges, low number of unique words, etc. Scammer falls immediately in love with you and wants to chat via another method. Offers up his/her life story to you with many details. Often lives in a remote area:: on an oil rig or on active military duty in the Middle East, claims to be an engineer. Claims to be orphaned, widowed or divorced, has children in boarding school. Soon, the kids need emergency money but Scammer’s account is frozen (How unfortunate!) because of employer issues, but he will soon return to the states and needs to borrow funds from YOU. NEWSFLASH—-NO ONE IN THAT SITUATION IS WITHOUT ALTERNATE MEANS OF ASSISTANCE!} Other scenarios, also: maybe needs safety equipment/new phone, travel money. etc. Scammer requests either bank routing numbers, a prepaid credit, gift card numbers, or even an iTunes card. I suggest you immediately decline these game invites, then go to the completed games section to check out their stats. If it resembles that description, IMMEDIATELY BLOCK and REPORT that person! NEVER give out personal info! NEVER! If you are naive (stupid) enough to allow contact, immediately request a right-now selfie with a sheet of paper that has today’s date, and a random phrase of your choosing...”Today the kitten barked”. If he/she cannot provide it, for WHATEVER reason, (work, broke camera, shy, etc) BLOCK HIM and report profile name to ZYNGA! Developers, bring back the ability to preview the profile of the player who has initiated a game. We used to be able to do this before deciding to accept or decline a game invitation. Every profile should have a ‘Playing since’ date. DICTIONARY—-What dictionary does Zynga use??? The developers permit a plethora of words that are obscure, random, foreign, some proper nouns, many abbreviations and even acronyms—-it’s just not right. Neither is permitting a word that cannot be defined. You cannot play a word in a real game of scrabble if it can’t be legitimately defined. Many abbreviations are accepted, but not the world-known ‘OK’ for okay??? ADIOS is allowed for American play but not HOLA??? What the heck???? So inconsistent. Don’t be politically correct, some less-than-polite words are historically common and valid, therefore should be usable. SWAPS—-Ever since the Swap Plus feature arrived, the algorithm of dealt letters has changed. Never used to get so many useless sets of letter combos. (EEEEUI, DRRDXZC, OIOICVV, DNRDNRQ, etc) Too many times a Swap has resulted in the same exact letters! I’m sure Zynga wants us to use real money to buy their coins for more Swap Plus. Opponents should be notified when Swap Plus or Radar is used! BADGES—-If Zynga is going to force players to earn points to receive a badge, then don’t increase the weekly total to an unattainable level. I play frequently, often maxing out in number of games, but I’m not going to spend every spare moment I have to get a frivolous badge. I’m an adult, not a toddler learning to potty train, I don’t want USELESS rewards. COINS—-Frequent and long-term players should be rewarded more coins. STREAKS—-Why bother counting streaks? It gives no incentive, it’s just a useless count. FRIENDS—- Refresh the list of possible new opponents more often. Let us have three options,,,, Male, Female or Random. We used to have those options and to choose other countries ‘back in the day’. SOLO BOTS—-The solo challenge against the bots is rigged. I’m not spending earned coins to play sooner, only lose again to words that shouldn’t be permitted. My pet peeve about the bots...I initiated the bot challenge, therefore, I should be able to take my turn first! Now I just encountered an option to pay 30 coins to take an extra turn against the BOT!! No way!!! PRIZE BOXES—-It can take up to FIVE TAPS to return to game play after being FORCED to claim a prize box! RIDICULOUS! DEVELOPERS—-Make a version for scrabble purists, minus the bling and cheats. Charge a one-time, affordable price. I am grandfathered into ad-free, but I would never pay $10 a month or buy coins. I won’t hold my breath waiting for a response from Zynga. While I am in bombast mode, the App Store should always show us most recent reviews, not what they deem to be most helpful.
Now I remember why I stopped playing this game years ago. Several times per game the screen freezes and it’s so frustrating. I can deal with the ridiculous number of ads better than shutting down every other word. Usually I’m just playing the single game but can’t imagine if I had to wait for the other person to unfreeze their screen too. FIX THIS PLEASE.
The ads are just stupid and painful. Size them to a screen how freaking hard is it.
Wow, Zynga is really pouring on the spam now. Can't hardly play anymore for all the spam. Sad! Seems they're trying to force players to do things we don't want to do. It's SPAM. I may be deleting the app now, after 6 years on my screen.
Updated version is garbage. Go back to the old platform.
Playing the solo challenges is a worthless cause. The game uses words that are not actual words. For instance the game I am playing right now: the first 3 words the computer played were axites, taxites, and mauts. These are made up words! What in the world! When you click on them for the definition it says “This is a valid Words With Friends word however there is no definition available yet!” What??!?!! I call foul WWF!
I love playing this game with my friends, but all of those rewards are pointless, and an irritation. What we need is the option to turn those off.
Decent game, but they have a lot of fluff crap on top of it. Play a word, have to click on 5 boxes you won, pins you acquired, etc just to get to the next turn. Don’t care about any of that crap, just slows the game down and takes away from the experience.
Too many ads!
Love the game but the adds drive me crazy
Please allow us to upgrade to pay a small fee as we did in the original version I played and still play on my old iPad. I will have to upgrade my iPad soon and fear that the original version will disappear!!! I have never taken up any of the add invites but would pay a yearly fee !!!!!! $5 or $10 even. Again the rating is for the game as per previous review. Eva
Get rid of those ads for apps that take 30 seconds (I am not exaggerating- I have timed them). That is a ridiculously long time to have to sit through an ad with no way of shortening it.
I paid for the first version but was eventually forced to download WWF2. Worst. Decision. Ever. Now the badges don’t represent the games you have waiting but include a phantom game waiting to be played. Every move made involves an annoying, lengthy animation for daily prizes that I can’t opt out of. The only thing keeping me here is loyalty to the WWF friends I’ve been playing with for years but even that is wearing thin with WWF2. The only positive is I don’t have the ads, which I paid to remove, so that’s good I guess.
I agree with all of the previous review and just wish to add that whilst I appreciate some advertising may be necessary, it is so disrespectful to users of this app to not provide a mute option, to keep irritating ad music going even once the ad has been closed, and the latest insult, a survey ad, which I completed, but which continues to pop up again and again, forcing a wait of 30 seconds each time.
Please do not put up games from a solo player I only play with my friends and it is very annoying to have it pop up all the time will you please remove the solo game I do not want to play it this is making me very angry I do not want to play any other game except with my friends get it of I am getting very annoyed with you guys I am not enjoying this app it was one that I enjoyed but now I am hating it all because of the solo game
I used to love this app but now the ads pop up after every turn and the "skip" or "x" buttons just don't work. I have to physically close the app and reopen between each turn just to stop them. It's becoming so frustrating; I'm on the brink of deleting the app entirely. The original game was so much fun but between the repetitive unstoppable ads, the weak rewards and so called bonuses I am just over this. Take my advice and go find another word game to play instead.
Don’t bother! It locks up with adds and stops play. It’s a pain.
Rubbish app if you like the idea of playing Scrabble with people that aren’t in the same room as you. Fantastic app if you like being treated like an idiot. Receiving notifications unrelated to active games just to open a “mystery chest” to unlock Coins and useless items. Single player mode that prompts you to spend money or wait 18hrs between games, only to switch the algorithm to make the games impossible if you don’t pay real money. Thanks for leaving the old version up ya crooks 🙏🙃
Get rid of all the extraneous awards or I’m deleting WWF2. It’s very distracting and annoying.
I could play the game when I downloaded it. But after closing it when I open I get a blank game screen and have no access to my current active games.
I have been playing WWF for years and love it, but these new additions of coins, rewards and side games are so annoying! My coin quota is full because I do not use them, but I still have to go through the process of acknowledging and opening them to continue play. Please add an option button to turn them off.
Latest releases have been really buggy, I lost a few games with one opponent, poof. When a game ends and I rematch, the old game hangs around. Many rewards show strings that are codes, I’m sure they are for localization, but you missed putting the real strings in.
First of all I purchased words with friends so I wouldn’t have to look at ads after every turn. Instead of ads now I get mystery boxes which are their way of trying to get you to spend more money on the game through micro transactions. If the mystery boxes were in a tab that I had to physically click on it would be ok but they make it where you have to click on them after your turn. It’s also bs that they started this cheat to win system by giving perks like word radar, hindsight, and swap but keep your turn. I think you should have the option of knowing if your opponent is using those perks on their turn. I don’t use them and honestly don’t want to play with anyone that does. Just let me play the game the way it’s meant to be played without all the bs in app microtransactions.
I am glad to see I’m not alone in hating all the extra crap clogging up the games. Now people can pay money to cheat (buying coins to swap without losing your turn etc.) I refuse to play any random games anymore. I am down to the two players that I have been playing for over 8 years. I see you have replied to a few complaints about the “mystery boxes” and “coins.” All you say is “we are listening and will continue to improve,” and “other people like the challenges, we want everyone happy.” I understand you need to make changes to the games to keep it fresh and flashy for the people with low attention spans. Here is your solution: Make the challenges, coins, mystery boxes.....OPTIONAL! It’s a quick fix. You can make it opt out like all of the other changes through the years. That way you can keep everyone happy. I see you are losing a ton of people due to ad problems as well as seeing some reviews that you are charging a monthly fee to be ad-free. Thank god I’m grandfathered in or I would be deleting for sure. In fact, if it weren’t for the two people I’ve been playing with for years I would be done. Get your ducks in a row here. I imagine your download numbers are suffering. This is an easy problem to fix.
Luv the game and been playing for years but am getting the same group of people to chose from and the random picks show searching for 3 players and is locked so have no choices that way either and can not get that removed. Also dont like the new collections ad there is never any rewards with them. Am searching for a new game due to these bugs.
I want to be able to opt out of these without having to resign! Please fix.
Please make the rewards an option so one can opt out of this annoying distraction to the real fun of the game!
Ever since the last update I keep getting an error message which prevents one ordinary game from loading: “Oops—something went wrong.” Turning off my iPad and rebooting the game does not work to fix the problem.
Probably one of my favorite games at the moment!
Such a great game for great minds. Keeps my brain engaged
I love this game with Passion and it really helps my life and brought me where I am today...
Great game to play, really social and interactive as well with the chat features. 👍👍👌✅💯
I am so upset that I tried updating this app and it has refused to download ever since. I even went as far as deleting the app and reinstalling, still no luck. I am quite freaked out because I haven’t played my games in 2 days and all my friends would think that I am not serious and never play with me again. It’s not easy finding frequent players and keeping them glued. Overall, fantastic app. Quite addictive!
A game worth playing
Too many rewards. I just want to play games.
It helps me to use my mind and keep it active all the time while I am making friends at the same time
Very entertaining, great for the vocabulary, always learning new words it helps that it also gives the meaning with the words
Great way to excercise your mind and keep the neurons sparking!!
Really enjoy and good for brain.
Has turned into constant questions from men whether I’m married or not what’s that all about!!
Great for ones vocabulary but addictive.
I love this game. It keeps my brain active and young. I have improved during the time I have been playing
Removing the ads is a bit hard to find and way too expensive. Some of them don't allow you to X out of them and a lot of them are not appropriate for younger players. However, for scrabble lovers, this is a great app and the redesigned scrabble board is an improvement. Highly addictive.
Game is great and updates keep it interesting, but I suspect the ads loading in the background cook your phone and drain the battery big time, like 1% every few seconds
....and great learning too!
Too Mch ads eish the game even gets boring coz u have to wait fo ads to finish
Once the ‘nudge’ button is pressed and you continue scrolling, the games you have nudged return to ‘un-nudged’ immediately. No matter how many times you press it, they don’t stay. Defeats the point of this facility entirely.
Love this game..... made lots of friends round the world too
I really like the make up of the new board with all its options
Surely cant have a video ad after every move
Mind blowing game of skill🇿🇦
Love the game but the app is super annoying. After every word played, usually a loud video ad is played and despite tapping the mute button, it continues at high volume. Also, the option to close only appears when the ad is almost over and sometimes does not work at all. Constantly having to reboot the app just to bypass these adverts.
Keeps loading so I can’t play anymore Fix it please
Great companion. Man’s best friend
