    Love the game but font size issue Nov 12, 2021

    By Riley
    I love this game but sometime in the last week probably with an update the size of the font changed and I can't see the letters as well. Is there a way to fix that. You used to be able to tap the screen and the font size would increase but that feature is not there now, can you get it back for us that are older/have bad eyesight. Thanks!

    3. You'll never be bored again with theme puzzles and daily puzzles on your device

    Later in the game they increase the difficulty by making increasingly vague hints and equally more obscure answers. I was gonna see how they could continue to keep the game going without having to resort to that. Wordle, for example, keeps all its words simple and is still challenging. If you can't increase the challenge of the game without increasing the complexity of the words beyond a casual's level then the game starts to fall apart for me IMO. Still having a blast playing it tho!

    Keeps my memory stronger. I have recently experienced something strange. For some reason one letter square remains on the board after I have successfully completed a game. I've tried to correct it but it still includes that ame as unfinished. Annoying at most but doesn't stop me from continuing to play the remaining games.

    Great game over all. A recent update has made it difficult to play while I'm at work. When I launch the app, it gets hung up on the Blue Ox screen that says "handshake complete." It will hang there for minutes before it lets me play packs that I have purchased. I usually play this game while at work because it functioned perfectly when I don't have a good Internet signal. Apparently this has changed...Requiring a net signal to play packs that I have already bought. Net signal at work is poor.

    It took me awhile to fully appreciate the new look of the app but I am enjoying the updates and new features. The puzzle quality is awesome, and I play every day to take advantage of those great little brain exercisers. What I've always loved about 7LW is its simplicity in terms of user interface and being devoid of unnecessary extras. I hope it will retain those features when the app gets any future 'makeovers'.

    I only play a few puzzles a week but I appreciate the opportunity to play so much more if I choose. I love also that the puzzles are a little challenging to answer. It definitely has helped my level of creativity in my real life by forcing me to view problems from multiple perspectives to solve. Highly recommend if looking for a game where you are willing to think a little, not just mindlessly tap. Great way to improve language skills, critical thinking, and deductive reasoning.

    A fun little word game, though sometimes the definitions seem a little odd. The 10th anniversary update (and subsequent updates)... the look is good, easier on the eyes than the original, and the 'autocomplete' is nice. However, it is very slow to load, and slow for the first few taps to be accepted - and my tablet is only a year old, with not much on it.

    App keeps freezing and crashing! I initially paid for the full, adfree version on my iPhone. It was worth the $$. The game is very simple, but addictive, and I kept coming back to play it after the novelty of other, more flashy games wore off. It worked perfectly for years on the iPhone. However, it performs terribly on my new Android phone (Google Pixel). The game constantly freezes, then crashes. Performance is very frustrating. Not worth paying for the full version at this point.

    Update: All is working correctly. I don't love all the "improvements" (such as reduced type size in some parts) but I love the program and have renewed my subscription. With the new update I get ads even though I have a paid subscription. The point of having a subscription was to be ad free. I loved the program before they messed with it. I don't like the new setup much so I guess giving up the program won't be as great a loss.

    Rating dropped from 4 stars to 2. I have played this game faithfully for several years, and have loved it until now. The latest update ruined it for me. I've always turned off the word length and have never used other hints. Now they try to bribe you to play "Expert" and "Pro" modes to get useless "stars." Thanks to this"update" I can only play the way I prefer by paying the ridiculous subscription fee. Not happening.

    Haven't played in a long time and was nervous of the new design. I absolutely hate it. You get 100 free puzzles (outside daily), you can't unlock new packs, so you have to pay to play basically everything. 1 hour of the game before I needed money to continue. The clues are horrible and sometimes downright wrong. There's so much wordplay that the answers hardly make sense.

    I've had this game for years and bought all the packs. Just redownloaded it since I took a break from it 6 months ago and the new interface is absolutely awful. I can't find an option to restore my purchases (which I have been able to do no problem every time I've gotten a new phone). 100% disappointed that this app is what it is now. Absolutely will not pay for all the packs again (and the prices are so high now!). Will not play it until my purchases are restored. Is also ugly as all get out.

    I have been playing 7LW for over five years. While I am happy to see the game evolving & getting updates, this latest update has issues with unresponsive button pressing & general lag. I shouldn't need to press the NEXT PUZZLE button 10+ times to get it to activate correctly. Or 4-5 times for a word component. This is with all setting options turned off; finger or stylus. This update was clearly not QA tested for enough (or any) devices before launch.

    I have been playing this for as long as I can remember, even bought 15 or packs over the years, but this new interface is utter garbage, and being forced to watch an as after every puzzle is trash. You lost me as a fan, Blue Ox. I have uninstalled and will never play another one of your games and I will tell everyone I know to do the same.

    Really glad we've been given the option to back up our progress. Too bad when I tried, it wouldn't load anything until I deleted and redownload the app. When I did finally get in and log into the account I attempted to save my progress to, all of my progress was gone. Oh also, I no longer have access to my $30 all access pass

    It was fine the way it was. Why?? Legacy option please. The original scheme and feel was just perfect like none other, clean -- keeping the mind clear and focused on the task at hand without it being too busy and straight to the point working its purpose as a game about 7 little words, to sharpen the mind and expand the vocabulary. Nothing gimmicky. Just amazing. Was, at least.

    What just happened to my favorite game?? I loved the simple, intuitive, interface you had before. Can't pick the word you want hint on. The playing screen is now massive with a calendar icon at the top right that doesn't seem to do anything when I click on it. Automatically removing a word is also disappointing...takes the fun out of when you mispell and add too many words. The only thing I like about this new interface is the night mode option, which is better than the black/green in old style

    The game is great. The new ads that don't let you back out of them are very annoying and may cause me to quit playing. Update: running into more 30 second ads that don't let you back out...it takes about 3 seconds to tell I'm not interested, so it just results in me getting pissed off. What marketing genius came up with this idea. I'll probably uninstall the next time it happens.

    I used to love this game. I've even purchased puzzle packs in the past. Decided to start playing again after a couple years, and I can't even play the daily bonus puzzles. Every time I click on one, I watch the full ad, then push the "x" and it takes me back to the initial screen instead of into the puzzle. I was willing to watch an ad to play- but watching several and still not being able to play?... I'm out. Uninstalling now.
