    When I was growing up, my mom and I played Scrabble together. I love playing this and I would love to get her to play with me. Unfortunately, I think we'd be playing for 1-2 hours if I got her into it!

    Changes ruined the game Jan 16, 2021

    By Lori Smith
    I use to love it but now you cannot get enough tokens in one day for a reward. They are trying to force the players to upgrade. The ads are long and between each hand. I will never upgrade...I’ll find a new games to play first. Please go back to the old style of play.

    Too many ads and pop ups May 15, 2021

    By aaron borden
    I complained about all the repetitive ads and now they have an annoying pop up asking me to buy coins to swap letters, every five seconds. I'm not paying for %$#@ on this app. I paid for my phone, I pay to use it and for my internet... they need to stop begging.

  • Christine Harris’ words with friends 2 review Mar 2, 2021

    By fillinger52
    I enjoy most aspects of the game such as the variety of events, the ability to earn points, stars, etc, and the competition. I don’t enjoy the glitches from time to time that not even updating the app improves. These are things like taking away games when playing duels, not being able to find the quick start games with just using the plus button, not being able to play a game in rivers as it never comes up oh and who cares about the back button. I love free trades and all the plays left especially at the end of the game but the best move is not always the best move although it is 90% of the time so well worth it. What I still dislike about it the most are all the men who are trying to use a free game app as a dating service, they are annoying, constantly trying to chat when you want to play and sometimes rude. They are predictable in that they are always widows, have one child-usually a girl, and either work in over seas oil rigs or in the military. I have heard from some of the ladies that they have been asked for money and or preloaded cards. Keep adding new ways to earn points and take off some. With duels who needs the the old timed games. Also, even though I contact you with issues I get no feedback or corrections. I’ve had the same number of original words for over eight years and it never changes. And there are a couple other things not even worth mentioning.

    So I only gave this 3 stars because the app has a few problems. Otherwise it’s a pretty good game! I love that you can play games with tons of different people and that there are the solo challenges! But there are a few problems that get in the way. 1) There are ads after EVERY SINGLE TURN YOU TAKE. There is only one exception of this: the solo challenges. 2) sometimes I don’t even get my games when it’s my turn! I’ve had to lose countless games because it never came up that it was my turn! That i found was very annoying, and the only way that I’ve figured out how to find those games is if you log out and then log back in again. And every time you log out, even if it’s just for a second, you get all of these new player notifications, like it didn’t even realize you had been gone for a second. 3) sometimes, it says it’s my turn and then I can’t even play. It won’t let me click on games sometimes, I’ve tried reloading my app several times, and it never worked! And finally 4) the time limit on games. I think personally this is pretty annoying, you have like 10-12 days or something to play your turn, or you lose! I’m not trying to spend every day on this app! I’ve got other things to do, and sometimes I won’t come on the app for a week or more! But overall I do like the concept, but if those few things could get fixed, then I definitely would highly recommend this game. Thanks for taking the time to read this!

    I have been playing this game for a few years now but I did take a break because of the overwhelming amount of men trying to pick you up. I play Everyday and sometimes for a couple of hours at a time. I enjoy most of the features and hope it just keeps getting better. I really wanted to give it four stars some things are nerve wracking with this game. The first is that when I go to watch a 30 second video to accumulate coins half the time it doesn’t work and keeps saying that it’s loading for a whole day. Please fix that. I also wish these videos gave at least 5 coins at a time but that’s not a big deal and is just my opinion. The other thing is that I continue to get game requests from men with a fake profiles. As stated in so many other reviews if you don’t chat and go to hangouts or other dating like websites they stop playing. Then that game will take up a game spot for 10+ days unless I resign which then messes up my stats. There has to be a way to work around this. Overall I love this game it’s my favorite of all time. I hope that it keeps improving and look forward to any new features. P.S I played a player a few days ago that had rainbow tiles. I asked her several times how she had the option for that style but she completely ignored me. I’m wondering is that something you would have to buy cause I would LOVE that.

  • Good App, But Uneven Support Outside of English Aug 23, 2019

    By Ari_Z12
    This is my favorite Scrabble-type mobile game and is popular with everyone I know for providing a quality experience. One feature I particularly liked was the ability to see the definition and a link to a dictionary entry for most words played when the game is set to English. This feature is something that sets the app apart from playing the traditional board game, and when combined with other gameplay improvements, it definitely makes the app better than the tediousness that sometimes is experienced when playing Scrabble by hand. What keeps this from being 5 stars for me is that not all words when the game is set to English have an associated definition or dictionary entry (will say something like “definition unavailable”), which makes it confusing how the developers chose what words make the cut for being playable. It also takes away from the learning aspect the app provides in being able to expand your vocabulary when an unusual word with no definition is played (e.g. Qi). I play equally in two languages, and the dictionary feature is absent altogether in the second language I play in (Portuguese). I would imagine it probably is only present in English, and would be glad to see it improved and expanded to other languages in the future.
  • Ads Feb 15, 2019

    By Kat€B
    Look, I know you all want us to purchase the ad free version. Sorry, but I don’t play enough to make that happen. So I use the ad version and there is a big problem with this. I often play while waiting in a waiting room or while watching TV with other people. I have my phone on silent. But , some of your ad refuse to be silent! All of a sudden there is a blast of noise from an ad that refuses to shut up! I go into a high anxiety panic trying to silence this ad that I didn’t even want to see! Also, suddenly all the ads are 30 seconds long and you can’t get past them. It gets where we see the same ad over and over and it is frustrating. There are a couple of games that I have seen the ads for about 1,000,000,000 times. I have begun to absolutely hate them. I will never download those games just because I have seen the ads far too much. Okay, done with the rant about the ads. The game itself is good. The badges are a nice touch and they make you want to get more points. The other little games in the game such as collecting things to get a new box is also fun. The dictionary is good and helpful. But, the dictionary often has words that it says it cannot define. Also, some foreign words are accepted but some aren’t. The game itself has done well with no glitches. I have enjoyed it a lot.
  • Fun game, but full of scammers Aug 22, 2020

    By jokael2
    There has to be some way to vet out these scammers who begin unsolicited conversations with women. They are relentless and annoying, and they have the same script. I don’t believe most of them are native English speakers based on their canned conversations and poor game-playing. After I accepted several challenges (I hoped they were due to being ‘smart matched’ with someone), 3 different men all started similar conversations with me ‘hello dear’ or using my name in another one. Then in 2 of them it led almost immediately to ‘where are you from’ and in one straight to ‘so, are you married?’ In one where I didn’t answer his repeated ‘hellos’, he finally said ‘so you don’t chat?’ I answered that and told him hello, but I was leery of chatting due to being asked those questions. He said he understood. Then next question was ‘so, where are you from?’ That’s when I looked up words with friends trolls, and found that this is a thing where ppl have actually been scammed. I don’t know what the answer is except to never say yes to a game or maybe just never open conversations with people I don’t know, but in the past I was able to say ‘good game’ or ‘nice word’ without worrying someone was going to try to solicit money from me. I love the game itself, so this stinks.
  • Solo challenge Jan 17, 2021

    By Blondah
    I normally do quite well in solo challenge. It used to be my favorite game in Words with Friends. However,The last two times I’ve gotten to the last character to play to end the challenge for the last box, it’s cost all the coins I’ve earned from watching ads before I even start. When I buy the swap, I get even worse letters than I had before. This particular game with “Gaia” has been the worst. Gaia has all the best letters each hand, and even if I swap each hand, I get the same letters I just had or worse! Once I got all vowels! I’ve played her at least 7 times! Ridiculous! I’m not going to play this portion of the game again. It’s a shame because I looked forward to playing the solo challenge each day. I’ll stick to the basic part of playing with “friends.” Other than that, it’s a good game I enjoy. It also seems we are watching more ads and earning less coin than before in the last version. One other thing: is this a dating app? I’m using the moniker “I Don’t Chat” for my name, and I’m still getting toms of men daily asking me to play, then attempting to chat. “Hi”, “Hi Dear!” “Where are you from?” Apparently they can’t read since I refuse to chat! Please do something about this! Looking at reviews here I see this is a constant problem for other women as well. Ugh! Annoying to say the least!
  • Apple Pencil with iOS14 Update Sep 18, 2020

    By Mimidddddvvvvvv123123123
    I always play Words with Friends 2 with my Apple Pencil on my iPad. I use it to scroll through the game and move tiles. However, With the new update to iOS 14, the app will not allow me to use the pencil to grab tiles once I open a game. Instead, now the pencil just scribbles all over the game board and there is no option to turn this off. I don’t need to scribble on a scrabble game board, it’s not a coloring page. It is pointless. So far, all other apps I’ve opened work fine with the pencil. Please fix to still allow the pencil to also be used to play the game by scrolling and grabbing tiles, not just as a drawing tool. Other issues I have is if you use a Word Radar and then leave that board, when you return the game closes the “radar” and then makes you “buy” another radar. They didn’t use to do this and it seems petty. Also, I like that that they allow you to change the game tile within each individual game. However, in one of my games it keeps reverting to this one game tile that I hate. Even though I have changed both my universal default tile and the individual game tile, every time I open the individual game it reverts back to this other tile that I can’t stand. It is annoying. I love WWF but constant little glitches happen enough to where I felt I needed to say something here.

    Ads ads ads. Ads that rather than closing when you click the x, goes to the product, that's just evil. Ads that cannot be closed so you have to restart the app. Terrible experience for what would otherwise be a good 4-5 star game. I only play this because my friend uses it, otherwise I would have rejected it a long time ago.

It's a shame for you because I have spent money on your ap. Would love an ad free version.

    By Misha Bakunin
    I have a lot of fun playing this game and at its core it is great. However, I'm only giving it 2 stars because the advertising is way over the top and very annoying. I would pay to remove the ads if it was a one time fee, but paying a lot each month via subscription to do so is ridiculous. Surely they make enough with all their many in app purchase options? In summary, a polished, great game, let down by obtrusive ads.

    I like that I can have multiple games open and play when I find a spare moment without time limitations. One star minus for the amount and the diversity of the ”awards”, it is a bit overwhelming for my taste. Two stars minus for the ridiculous level of advertising. Really guys. I wouldn't mind paying to support the development, as long as the charge is reasonable and correspondant to the competition.

  • Overwhelming Dec 29, 2020

    By DelBeesu
    There is waaaaaay too much going on in this app. When you open it up, you are bombarded with messages about treasure hunts and mini games and contests, ads, and then when you finally get to the main menu there are always like 3 games that you didn’t agree to play with random strangers that you have to actively go into to tell it to decline in order to remove it. Underneath that there are suggestions for random strangers for you to play. There have been times where I missed that it was my turn in the one game I’m playing for over a day because there’s so much going on that I just couldn’t see our game in the menu and see that it was my turn. Then there are “tips” where the app wants you to know about a feature. Sometimes it’s hints, or a new thing that you can earn points for for whatever, but they are impossible to exit out of without agreeing to do the thing, which is really obnoxious. There have also been times where I’ve been forced to go into some new section of the app that I’m not interested and couldn’t figure out how to get back to the main screen, and has to just close the app and reopen it. This has got to be one of the most overwhelming, obnoxious apps I’ve ever used. The only reason I didn’t delete it immediately is because my friend who I never get to see really wanted to play scrabble, and we used to play in this app when it was new and less insane. I may delete it after this game though.

    Please put the "Do you want to send this move" back to the bottom. Having it pop up in the middle of my screen is irratating. Your developers make these changes that they think improve the game but it's just so frustrating. The animation is slow and glitchy and unnecessary. Side note, love the new mini games, but the zoom has to go. Who is in love with feature that they keep pushing it? I would play but that feature is so frustrating.
  • Poorly developed Scrabble Feb 12, 2020

    By Unwrittn
    I love Scrabble. But the design and execution of this app is just sad. First, it says ‘Words with Friends’, meaning the primary purpose is to play with people you know. But unless they are dedicated to the game, you could wait hours or even days for the other person to take their turn. If you really want to play, but you’re tired of waiting for a friend to check in, you could hit up a complete stranger. I’ve done this a few times only to be quizzed on my personal life, political and religious beliefs, and my love life. Apparently, this game attracts very lonely people who would rather chat than play, and who also think a game app is an appropriate place to find a companion. So again, I gave up on that avenue of play. What’s left? Solo Challenges! A chance to play against the computer at the rate of one game every 8 hours. Lame! And the computer does not stick to English, or a preferred language, or any language at all for that matter. It makes up words! I just played an entire game again “Long Nose Neil” and not a single word he played was a valid English word! Several were not real words and even the computer had no definition for them; others were in other languages (Hebrew, French, and Spanish). And as if that wasn’t annoying enough, it’s not even a real game. You have “5 moves(words)” in which to out-score the computer. I gave it 2 stars for being mildly entertaining, but it’s a far cry from what real Scrabble lovers would expect.

  • Great Game with Cool Things! Mar 31, 2020

    By RainbowKitty1000000
    This game is so fun because you can play a Scrabble-like game with friends and family. You can friend people, and when you start a game, you don’t like, have to stay on it forever. What I mean is, the other person might be taking a while and you get bored of just sitting and waiting. So, you can go out of the game and do something else while you are waiting. You can even start a different game with another person! So you can be playing TWO or more games at once! Also, while you are in a game, you can chat with your opponent. That can be helpful sometimes. You can also block, mute, or report someone while in chat. Another thing that you can do in a game is search up words in the dictionary that they have. This game also has many fun challenges and other extra things. You’ll figure it out if you get this fun game!So far I have even learned two new words: fete and hoons. This game really can teach you new words and things. I really encourage people to get this fun and awesome Scrabble-like game, and now you can play Scrabble virtually with faraway friends and family!

    Like another reviewer stated, the chat feature is annoying with random people wanting to engage in chat. They ask lots of personal questions. My experiences have revealed that most of the men who initiate chat are scammers. One in particular uses multiple profile names, but the same profile picture. Another one I had the misfortune of trusting, became very hostile and agitated when I finally figured out he was a scammer. He actually said he loved me and wanted me to be the mother of his son. And yet another one wanted me to travel to the UK to meet him. Some red flags to look for is, they have a new account, have only been playing WWF for a short period. They create new aliases and new accounts. They always want to know what you do for a living and they almost always claim to be a widower. Often times too, they have very high scores/standings because they cheat. (There are apps people use to cheat). So I no longer chat with these guys whose profiles seem suspicious to me. But as for the game .... I love playing Words and I have discovered new friends and reconnected with old friends playing Words.

    I really like this game. 5+ stars for sure and more like 10 stars. The continual improvements are great and positive and have never have gone into the negative. The new game wwf's.2 has got a lot of visual improvements and I like the "new" sounds. Personally I don't like how the game repeats by showing me what the other games are or new things etc. My suggestion for that would be to put all that on the settings page. Then a person can go there to discover what's new or how many badges they have etc. rather than all that interfacing when one first starts the app. but that's just a suggestion coming from me. Other players may be totally fine with the way it is which is still pretty awesome. I couldn't at this point ever give this app/game a negative review. It's just too well designed and plays well. Thank you for the many hours of pleasure and like another reviewer said, this game really helps to learn words. I have sent in a few word suggestions that didn't get added. Not sure why but I thought I'd bring that to the developers attention. Once again, thank you very much for an outstanding app.
  • Words With Friends 2 Jun 21, 2018

    An outgrowth of Scrabble, this game is developing through time. Updates keep changing it, sometimes for the better, sometimes I wish they would have left a feature the way it was. Whereas Scrabble didn’t allow a dictionary on the premises and I never learned a new word, Words has its own dictionary. When you or your friend enter a word it’s meaning is given along with an oral pronunciation. This gives you an opportunity to learn vocabulary. The dictionary is in a development process, so sometimes an entry hasn’t reached its ultimate perfection. All improvements take time. A feature that I would have liked to keep was the return of letters to their original placement. If I was developing a word and it needed more tweaking to make it fit I could touch return and it came back to the bottom just as it was. An update lost that feature. Now the word comes back scrambled so that I have to take time to redo it. Much care is put into the development and execution of this game. I recommend it for anyone who wants to keep on learning in an enjoyable way.
  • I have a suggestion!🌟🌟💫 Nov 16, 2017

    By 5 stars for Word Cookies!❤️
    If this suggestion is bad, please don’t give me hate. Anyway, I had a dream a few nights ago, where on Words With Friends, you could create a game, and there would be a chance of you getting a board with a special spot on the board to put a letter on. On that spot you can only put an N. Now, you can put other letters on it, but it wouldn’t count for the bonus. Right under that special N spot is a regular spot, and then under that spot is another spacial N spot. To get the full bonus, you put another N on the second N spot. Now, this seems hard. What would the special bonus be? Is it worth it? The special bonus is: each N spot counts for 1 quadruple word score. You only get the score if there is an N in that spot. If an N is on both spots, your word is x8. And that’s not all, once you play the word you will get free 5 Swap+’s. I will let Words With Friends choose where they want to put these spots, if this is a good idea. P.S. Sorry if my review name is 5 stars for Word Cookies, I used it for another review and it won’t let me change it.
  • I lost my account and what’s up with theses scammers?? Dec 12, 2018

    By JJake87
    What’s going on with WWF? I lost all my games and my account too. I had to start over and I’ve been playing some people for years and years. Luckily i was able to find a few and I now have a whole new list of people to play. NOW...here’s my problem every day I’m getting 3 sometimes 4 players that are the”scammers”. They all have the same story. Work for Exxon Mobil, are widowers or divorced wit a child that’s in boarding school and are quite insistent that i download “hangouts”. I’ve said no and they still try. I’ve been taking screenshots of them seeing as there are quite a few. I even played their game and tried to scam the scammer. Today i decided not to let them go on so i said “Let me guess, you work in the oil field, you’re a widower, you have a child and would like to get to know me better on hangouts. Ive actually seen your pic on a forum all about you scammers” And just like that he disappeared. But guess what? I have another trying now. They’re relentless.
  • Great game with a few problem Apr 3, 2019

    By Guitarhero26
    I really like this game. I play several times a day with people from all over the world. Most people just want to play the game and maybe chat a bit about the game. Then there are the trolls- every time it a male ( maybe male players get female trolls?)who just started playing that day. Always says great match but how can the game know that if the “person” hasn’t played before? I’m not playing this game to hook up, flirt, or share my life story or other personal information. I wish there was a way to check out the person profile before one accepts the challenge. Because once one accepts the challenge only then does one find out he is actually a troll. If one resigns it’s counted as a loss. Another issue is the ads. I get this is how the makers of the game make money. But some days it’s the same ad over and and over again. I probably see the same ad 50 times a day! Several different ads during play -okay- same ad over and over not okay.
  • Love this game! So enjoyable playing and making new friends. Dec 21, 2017

    By cookiegram12
    A great game to expand vocabulary and connect with friends. Love to play and complete games . Daily looking forward to new challenges however I have encountered a problem . I have been playing consistently with a friend over 6 months when all of a sudden I received a message, "Sorry your friend is maxed out and needs to finish one game. Until that time she can no longer play." I asked her about this and she said she is also trying to play with me and they won't connect us together. She told me to tell you that we tried to discuss with support and had no reason for this problem. They suggested certain things to do with nothing supplying answers to our problem. She continues to play with others with no problem and questions as to whether she deleted me by mistake. We are hoping that we will receive help by sharing our situation...we love the Game! Just sad right now and looking for the correct answer that we need.
  • GARBAGE Sep 22, 2019

    By JunglistAtLarge
    I love this game, but a game that you have to spend TEN DOLLARS A MONTH TO KEEP AWAY ADS! Really? Well I see your game & i raise to a game with no ads for 99 cents! Permanently! I remember having words with friends 1 THAT I PAID FOR! Only to see shortly after the greed machine following right after. I hope the designer/anyone who profits is ASHAMED! Literally ashamed! A game that teaches so many needed linguistics, so many willing to pay a flat fair price to own it, but whelp, sorrily you just see a dollar sign. I’ve made it a mission to make sure that those of us committed move over to the original game you stole the copyright from. Idk about everyone else but I’ve heard about this game Scrabble since a young child lol. And that game seems absurdly similar only that’s available for purchase! Words with friends developers you should be ashamed down to your cores. It’s so deeply disturbing I and so many like myself have not a positive word to say about your ethics and morals. It’s disgusting & that’s putting it nicely (I assure you)!
  • Christine Harris’ words with friends 2 review Mar 2, 2021

    By fillinger52
    I enjoy most aspects of the game such as the variety of events, the ability to earn points, stars, etc, and the competition. I don’t enjoy the glitches from time to time that not even updating the app improves. These are things like taking away games when playing duels, not being able to find the quick start games with just using the plus button, not being able to play a game in rivers as it never comes up oh and who cares about the back button. I love free trades and all the plays left especially at the end of the game but the best move is not always the best move although it is 90% of the time so well worth it. What I still dislike about it the most are all the men who are trying to use a free game app as a dating service, they are annoying, constantly trying to chat when you want to play and sometimes rude. They are predictable in that they are always widows, have one child-usually a girl, and either work in over seas oil rigs or in the military. I have heard from some of the ladies that they have been asked for money and or preloaded cards. Keep adding new ways to earn points and take off some. With duels who needs the the old timed games. Also, even though I contact you with issues I get no feedback or corrections. I’ve had the same number of original words for over eight years and it never changes. And there are a couple other things not even worth mentioning.
  • I love this game but... Sep 17, 2019

    By Nica1980
    I have been playing this game for a few years now but I did take a break because of the overwhelming amount of men trying to pick you up. I play Everyday and sometimes for a couple of hours at a time. I enjoy most of the features and hope it just keeps getting better. I really wanted to give it four stars some things are nerve wracking with this game. The first is that when I go to watch a 30 second video to accumulate coins half the time it doesn’t work and keeps saying that it’s loading for a whole day. Please fix that. I also wish these videos gave at least 5 coins at a time but that’s not a big deal and is just my opinion. The other thing is that I continue to get game requests from men with a fake profiles. As stated in so many other reviews if you don’t chat and go to hangouts or other dating like websites they stop playing. Then that game will take up a game spot for 10+ days unless I resign which then messes up my stats. There has to be a way to work around this. Overall I love this game it’s my favorite of all time. I hope that it keeps improving and look forward to any new features. P.S I played a player a few days ago that had rainbow tiles. I asked her several times how she had the option for that style but she completely ignored me. I’m wondering is that something you would have to buy cause I would LOVE that.

    I have been playing this game since 2011 and love it but all day I have been exited out of the game every time I make a play. Chatted with the help desk and tried force stopping, watched the YouTube video and made sure it was up to date....no help, still does it. If I Uninstaller and reinstall I lose all my stats and everything. Please fix this problem....
  • Good App, But Uneven Support Outside of English Aug 23, 2019

    By Ari_Z12
    This is my favorite Scrabble-type mobile game and is popular with everyone I know for providing a quality experience. One feature I particularly liked was the ability to see the definition and a link to a dictionary entry for most words played when the game is set to English. This feature is something that sets the app apart from playing the traditional board game, and when combined with other gameplay improvements, it definitely makes the app better than the tediousness that sometimes is experienced when playing Scrabble by hand. What keeps this from being 5 stars for me is that not all words when the game is set to English have an associated definition or dictionary entry (will say something like “definition unavailable”), which makes it confusing how the developers chose what words make the cut for being playable. It also takes away from the learning aspect the app provides in being able to expand your vocabulary when an unusual word with no definition is played (e.g. Qi). I play equally in two languages, and the dictionary feature is absent altogether in the second language I play in (Portuguese). I would imagine it probably is only present in English, and would be glad to see it improved and expanded to other languages in the future.
  • Ads Feb 15, 2019

    By Kat€B
    Look, I know you all want us to purchase the ad free version. Sorry, but I don’t play enough to make that happen. So I use the ad version and there is a big problem with this. I often play while waiting in a waiting room or while watching TV with other people. I have my phone on silent. But , some of your ad refuse to be silent! All of a sudden there is a blast of noise from an ad that refuses to shut up! I go into a high anxiety panic trying to silence this ad that I didn’t even want to see! Also, suddenly all the ads are 30 seconds long and you can’t get past them. It gets where we see the same ad over and over and it is frustrating. There are a couple of games that I have seen the ads for about 1,000,000,000 times. I have begun to absolutely hate them. I will never download those games just because I have seen the ads far too much. Okay, done with the rant about the ads. The game itself is good. The badges are a nice touch and they make you want to get more points. The other little games in the game such as collecting things to get a new box is also fun. The dictionary is good and helpful. But, the dictionary often has words that it says it cannot define. Also, some foreign words are accepted but some aren’t. The game itself has done well with no glitches. I have enjoyed it a lot.
  • Fun game, but full of scammers Aug 22, 2020

    By jokael2
    There has to be some way to vet out these scammers who begin unsolicited conversations with women. They are relentless and annoying, and they have the same script. I don’t believe most of them are native English speakers based on their canned conversations and poor game-playing. After I accepted several challenges (I hoped they were due to being ‘smart matched’ with someone), 3 different men all started similar conversations with me ‘hello dear’ or using my name in another one. Then in 2 of them it led almost immediately to ‘where are you from’ and in one straight to ‘so, are you married?’ In one where I didn’t answer his repeated ‘hellos’, he finally said ‘so you don’t chat?’ I answered that and told him hello, but I was leery of chatting due to being asked those questions. He said he understood. Then next question was ‘so, where are you from?’ That’s when I looked up words with friends trolls, and found that this is a thing where ppl have actually been scammed. I don’t know what the answer is except to never say yes to a game or maybe just never open conversations with people I don’t know, but in the past I was able to say ‘good game’ or ‘nice word’ without worrying someone was going to try to solicit money from me. I love the game itself, so this stinks.
  • “Oops something went wrong” Jul 25, 2020

    By ;lkkj;lkj
    I’ve had this message a couple of times, usually when trying to start a practice game. There is no way get rid of this open game, that you cannot play, that counts as one of your open practice games AND there is no way to contact the developer, outside of writing a review for the game itself, to help get rid of it. The last time this happened, they were responsive and got rid of the game for me. This time, however, not so much. I have had a practice game open, that I cannot play, for 189 days. I play the game every day. And other reviewers are indeed correct - the number of trollers has increased 10 fold over the past year or so. Now before I ever accept a game, I look up their profile to see when they became a member. If they’re new, I decline the game. I got tired of them holding up games for 10 days because I chose not to chat with them. A few are decent and will resign the game right away, but most are not. They will wait until the game resigns itself. I have put my settings so as NOT to be the daily match person, but they still find me. I sure with the developers could do something about this! And, I wish they’d close this practice game that’s been open for 189 days for me!

    I love to play this game to relax; however, this game frustrate me instead. The achievement system is not reliable. I finished level 20 and should have to 21. In my profile still shows me as level 20. I am now working to earn level 22. It’s very frustrating when one works hard to achieve a level and your system takes away. In different device it’s shows correct level 21, but in this device I am using it shows level 20. I delete the app and reloaded the app and is still showing my image with a 20. Also, there are too many words that are allowed which aren’t really words. When I look for definition there is none. This game allows foreign language words when I am playing in English. I understand that there are some foreign words that have been adopted and integrated into English language and are acceptable to use, but the words I see are definable not in common use. I wish the developers would take the time to read the reviews. I read a few and they all have the same issues in common. Please read the reviews! You ask for a rating, but you don’t read the reviews. This a great game to play, but you need to fix all the glitches. We are all telling you the problems. Listen to us .
  • I LOVE & HATE WWF2 Feb 28, 2021

    By Kathleen BB
    Great game improvement over regular WWF ,more fun, interesting and challenging. Buggy! Buggy! Buggy! Buggy‼️ I play daily both on my iPhone and iPad. When I started playing WWF2, there were a few incidents per month, where I had to re-boot my iPhone10. Whenever they come out with a new update, the game will crash consistently 2-4 x’s per week prior; progressively worsening to daily until you update. Then crashing is less, but still somewhat buggy after. I updated to the Winter Wonderland last week on my iPad. The first day it crashed completely and would not clear with re-booting,(times 6). I had to completely re-install the game and lost all my stored credits, history and advancements. Understandably, I have been dragging my feet about updating my iphone10 to this Winter Wonderland version, yet the game crashes several times daily and yesterday I was cheated out of 18 coins from the watch the ads binge they offer you when you claim the daily bonus! There is no avenue to contact them to report problems. Most of the problems occur when the ads play, the screen can freeze, turn dark, or the logo just spins. Hint, hint, ever pushing for you to pay for the no-ad upgrade which is expensive.
  • Love to Play WWF Feb 13, 2021

    By Bring back the old look
    I have been playing this game for many years and enjoy it immensely. I do have a bone to pick, however, with the latest change, which is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. The change that I am unhappy with concerns the Daily Word Play. It used to be very easy to access Daily Word Play as it was displayed in more than one area of the game board. The previous Points Goal for Daily Word Play was 167, and you had 4 tries to get to that score and when you did not reach it in 4 tries you could watch a video for 4 additional tries. Once you reached 167 points you received a Mystery Box. I was fine with watching a short ad for the 4 additional tries, and I always did so to complete the 167 point goal. Now the goal is 930 for a Mystery Box with unlimited tries and no ads, and the only way to access it is through the Goals box. The issue is if you want to stop before 930 points (because that score takes a bit of time to achieve) and go back to Daily Word Play later, there is no longer a way to access it again. Please fix this issue, as I am sure that other players like to put down the game and go back to Daily Word Play later when they are not playing other opponents.
  • This is a great game but.... Jun 14, 2020

    By Starcourt Mall
    So I only gave this 3 stars because the app has a few problems. Otherwise it’s a pretty good game! I love that you can play games with tons of different people and that there are the solo challenges! But there are a few problems that get in the way. 1) There are ads after EVERY SINGLE TURN YOU TAKE. There is only one exception of this: the solo challenges. 2) sometimes I don’t even get my games when it’s my turn! I’ve had to lose countless games because it never came up that it was my turn! That i found was very annoying, and the only way that I’ve figured out how to find those games is if you log out and then log back in again. And every time you log out, even if it’s just for a second, you get all of these new player notifications, like it didn’t even realize you had been gone for a second. 3) sometimes, it says it’s my turn and then I can’t even play. It won’t let me click on games sometimes, I’ve tried reloading my app several times, and it never worked! And finally 4) the time limit on games. I think personally this is pretty annoying, you have like 10-12 days or something to play your turn, or you lose! I’m not trying to spend every day on this app! I’ve got other things to do, and sometimes I won’t come on the app for a week or more! But overall I do like the concept, but if those few things could get fixed, then I definitely would highly recommend this game. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
  • Solo challenge Jan 17, 2021

    By Blondah
    I normally do quite well in solo challenge. It used to be my favorite game in Words with Friends. However,The last two times I’ve gotten to the last character to play to end the challenge for the last box, it’s cost all the coins I’ve earned from watching ads before I even start. When I buy the swap, I get even worse letters than I had before. This particular game with “Gaia” has been the worst. Gaia has all the best letters each hand, and even if I swap each hand, I get the same letters I just had or worse! Once I got all vowels! I’ve played her at least 7 times! Ridiculous! I’m not going to play this portion of the game again. It’s a shame because I looked forward to playing the solo challenge each day. I’ll stick to the basic part of playing with “friends.” Other than that, it’s a good game I enjoy. It also seems we are watching more ads and earning less coin than before in the last version. One other thing: is this a dating app? I’m using the moniker “I Don’t Chat” for my name, and I’m still getting toms of men daily asking me to play, then attempting to chat. “Hi”, “Hi Dear!” “Where are you from?” Apparently they can’t read since I refuse to chat! Please do something about this! Looking at reviews here I see this is a constant problem for other women as well. Ugh! Annoying to say the least!
  • Apple Pencil with iOS14 Update Sep 18, 2020

    By Mimidddddvvvvvv123123123
    I always play Words with Friends 2 with my Apple Pencil on my iPad. I use it to scroll through the game and move tiles. However, With the new update to iOS 14, the app will not allow me to use the pencil to grab tiles once I open a game. Instead, now the pencil just scribbles all over the game board and there is no option to turn this off. I don’t need to scribble on a scrabble game board, it’s not a coloring page. It is pointless. So far, all other apps I’ve opened work fine with the pencil. Please fix to still allow the pencil to also be used to play the game by scrolling and grabbing tiles, not just as a drawing tool. Other issues I have is if you use a Word Radar and then leave that board, when you return the game closes the “radar” and then makes you “buy” another radar. They didn’t use to do this and it seems petty. Also, I like that that they allow you to change the game tile within each individual game. However, in one of my games it keeps reverting to this one game tile that I hate. Even though I have changed both my universal default tile and the individual game tile, every time I open the individual game it reverts back to this other tile that I can’t stand. It is annoying. I love WWF but constant little glitches happen enough to where I felt I needed to say something here.

    I really enjoy this game if you get an opponent who actually wants to play the game. Most of the male opponents want to chat, which is OK if that was all, but it seems a lot of them are 1) widowed with a child; 2) from one country but working in another 3) speak in pigeon English and 4) want my email address or phone number so we can chat outside the game. Screams weirdo or scammer. I mostly against play female opponents to avoid the creeps.
  • Good game but bugs are costly and weird strangers Jan 9, 2021

    By Lady11927
    The game in itself is good. I’ve been playing it for almost 10 years in and off. However, I recommend you don’t spend money on it. I recently bought the rewards pass and have missed out on getting a lot of the rewards because the app keeps bugging out and removing the pass altogether. I tried to contact support, did what they told me, and still got no fix or refund. There are a lot of glitches that cause you to have to spend coins twice. Through several updates, the issue has not been resolved. I spent money on the game because I love it but it’s just not worth the bugs. On top of that, there’s a scam issue when you play with male strangers. There are hundreds of fake profiles run by a bot. They try to talk to you excessively, hit on you, etc. They draw you in and later on ask for money. I only know all of that because I’ve read about it, but at first I had no idea why I was being hit on by creepy strange men. I don’t mind playing games with random users but there has to be some way WWF can weed out the bots.... the bots immediately resign games if you don’t continue chatting with them because they know they won’t get any scam money. Zynga pleeeeaaaassssseeeee fix these issues. They’re killing an otherwise great game.
  • The programmers don’t know the English language Aug 31, 2020

    By Tfeliot
    It is frustrating enough playing this game because of the way they force their little rewards on you and you have to wait for those to process before you can continue playing. But worse than ever, is that I don’t think that these people are using any valid English dictionary to determine what is a word and what is not. I have an English writing degree and I can tell you that there of been multiple times when a word should have been acceptable and was not. These are words that were acceptable in the game of Scrabble, and I suggest the programmers start using Scrabble’s Dictionary or some other valid dictionary I have a feeling this is the result of programmers who have English as a second language. Very frustrating and I am considering quitting for this reason. Since I wrote the preceding words, the developer contacted me and told me that they use the Oxford English Dictionary and that they except 160,000 words. If they indeed used the Oxford English Dictionary, they would know that it has over 600,000 words in it. And they should also know that people who play word games are generally people who have a larger vocabulary than people who think there are only 160,000 words. Their response proved my point.
  • Honestly not the best Mar 24, 2020

    By Freaquent user
    It has a lot of problems. There are weird challenges that you HAVE to participate in no matter what. Once, I decided to start a practice game and it glitched out so now I have no way of accessing it which means I can’t resign to fix the problem and I can’t make a new practice game either. Another time, I decided to play a game with a random person and for some reason, they added them to my friends list. But I didn’t search for their user name. I used the create game and pressed smart match. This would theoretically be in my game list, and I would have one match with them, and never see them again. There is no way to fix this that I know of. That’s another thing. It is very difficult to navigate the app, and you often can’t remember how to get to a certain place. Things can be glitchy at times, and in general, the app is missing a lot of thing that should be accessible through settings in the app. I’m sorry if this review was hard to read, I wrote it in five minutes and there is probably tons of mistakes. tl;dr Don’t get the app unless you really really need too. It really needs to be worked on. I don’t use the app any more, and don’t want to any time soon. Save your self time, confusion, and possibly anger, by not downloading it.
  • You are punished for buying Coins Mar 15, 2021

    By Schpinkle
    Not sure what the developers are thinking when they make a poor move like this......As you all know, everyday you earn free coins throughout the game which allows you to ‘buy’ certain playing tools for a more strategic game. You can either collect a daily allotment or watch an advertisement for which you receive 3 coins. You can also buy coins since it can take awhile to earn coins. For awhile I played the games with the earned coins cause I didn’t want to spend money on coins. I got addicted to having coins and when I ran out I spent $20 to buy a bunch of them. I have done this multiple times. I’ve never spent money inside any other app. And what did Words developers decide was a smart idea? When you now buy coins they eliminate your ability to earn coins by watching an advertisement! The chance to earn was what got me to finally buy coins in the first place!! My sister refuses to buy anything from the app in response to this ridiculous move. I just joined her, since my recent purchase earned me the inability to earn coins by watching advertisements. I feel like they slapped my hand for giving them my money. Well guess what....? The game itself is great but the 3 stars is for that ridiculous move.
  • Fun game but... Oct 19, 2020

    By RegNYNJ
    Fun game but... improvements can be made. The game is engaging and does connect you with friends and family but there are things that bother me. Coins, etc awarded are lacking. If I spend my time on this game (on the daily word, for example, which takes a while), I should be given more than just a few meager coins. Even the word search puzzles reward you 10 coins for 12 games. Why not at least 12? Ads are constant and overwhelming. They interrupt the flow of games and waste time. There are way too many. Time is wasted in other ways. The wait in between forming words in Duals, for example, is tedious and at times costs me the game as my opponent wins while the game is stalled. Ridiculous! Time is also depleted when we are told every little coin we have won, whether it be one or two or 10. Less updates with more info would save time, battery power and interrupt us less often. Perhaps a reward section could be used so we could check. Battery power is drained too quickly when using the app and all the ads and slowdowns already mentioned contribute to that. I hope to keep playing but wish for improvements. I do enjoy the games here but the annoyances can greatly detract from them.
  • Fun game but way too many technical glitches! Feb 6, 2019

    By dcinsa31
    For the most part this is a fun game to play with your friends to pass he time, take a break, waiting at the doctors office but the adds are horrific; waiting 30-60 on between each move while playing an add is ridiculous; some just stop so you have to get out of the app and back in. If you did opt in the one ONLY time the no adds was offered with original app for 1.99 you are SOL. It should have offered with the real ease of WW2. WW2, although in Beta mode needs to stay there for a while as it still freezes when the host is talking (which by the way they do way toooooo much) and at times you have missed the question all together... so guess what? You’re done. I just do it for fun... not 2.20! People make comments on iG and FB all the time which go unanswered. Example.... 7 Feb 2019 “down for maintenance.” It has yet to be posted on IG but on FB ppl wanna an approximate time for the outage. Common courtesy you give your users an estimated time; even if you over estimate. I gave 3 stars because I don’t have a lot of problems other ppl have. And the weekly goals are INSANE. I just think you can do a better job communicating with your users. The only communication I’ve seen is for positive feedback. Thanks

    I have a lot of fun playing this game and at its core it is great. However, I'm only giving it 2 stars because the advertising is way over the top and very annoying. I would pay to remove the ads if it was a one time fee, but paying a lot each month via subscription to do so is ridiculous. Surely they make enough with all their many in app purchase options? In summary, a polished, great game, let down by obtrusive ads.

    I like that I can have multiple games open and play when I find a spare moment without time limitations. One star minus for the amount and the diversity of the ”awards”, it is a bit overwhelming for my taste. Two stars minus for the ridiculous level of advertising. Really guys. I wouldn't mind paying to support the development, as long as the charge is reasonable and correspondant to the competition.
  • Overwhelming Dec 29, 2020

    By DelBeesu
    There is waaaaaay too much going on in this app. When you open it up, you are bombarded with messages about treasure hunts and mini games and contests, ads, and then when you finally get to the main menu there are always like 3 games that you didn’t agree to play with random strangers that you have to actively go into to tell it to decline in order to remove it. Underneath that there are suggestions for random strangers for you to play. There have been times where I missed that it was my turn in the one game I’m playing for over a day because there’s so much going on that I just couldn’t see our game in the menu and see that it was my turn. Then there are “tips” where the app wants you to know about a feature. Sometimes it’s hints, or a new thing that you can earn points for for whatever, but they are impossible to exit out of without agreeing to do the thing, which is really obnoxious. There have also been times where I’ve been forced to go into some new section of the app that I’m not interested and couldn’t figure out how to get back to the main screen, and has to just close the app and reopen it. This has got to be one of the most overwhelming, obnoxious apps I’ve ever used. The only reason I didn’t delete it immediately is because my friend who I never get to see really wanted to play scrabble, and we used to play in this app when it was new and less insane. I may delete it after this game though.
  • Poorly developed Scrabble Feb 12, 2020

    By Unwrittn
    I love Scrabble. But the design and execution of this app is just sad. First, it says ‘Words with Friends’, meaning the primary purpose is to play with people you know. But unless they are dedicated to the game, you could wait hours or even days for the other person to take their turn. If you really want to play, but you’re tired of waiting for a friend to check in, you could hit up a complete stranger. I’ve done this a few times only to be quizzed on my personal life, political and religious beliefs, and my love life. Apparently, this game attracts very lonely people who would rather chat than play, and who also think a game app is an appropriate place to find a companion. So again, I gave up on that avenue of play. What’s left? Solo Challenges! A chance to play against the computer at the rate of one game every 8 hours. Lame! And the computer does not stick to English, or a preferred language, or any language at all for that matter. It makes up words! I just played an entire game again “Long Nose Neil” and not a single word he played was a valid English word! Several were not real words and even the computer had no definition for them; others were in other languages (Hebrew, French, and Spanish). And as if that wasn’t annoying enough, it’s not even a real game. You have “5 moves(words)” in which to out-score the computer. I gave it 2 stars for being mildly entertaining, but it’s a far cry from what real Scrabble lovers would expect.
  • Update freezes Sep 17, 2020

    By Babs Toyfish
    Update: Zynga seems bent on getting rid of all their adult users. The app gets progressively, aggressively stupider with every update. It’s more geared toward two-year-olds all the time. Maybe I’m being paranoid, but sometimes I suspect that they built that freeze (mentioned below) in on purpose to get you to always update in hopes the new version will fix it, because with every update a new annoying popup feature for children comes along, or you’re now charged for things that used to be free. I normally avoid updates because of things like this, but that freeze has got me trying each new one that comes along. They’re building in new bugs all the time seems. First it was not being able to use voice to text in chat more than once. Then it was not being able to use the cursor in the chat box. It’s like a new bug every time. One would think that a $7 billion company could do better on quality control. And every new feature feels like they’re dumbing the app down to appeal to children because children are easier to bilk money out of. I’m an advanced player who’s been playing this app a lot since 2011. It feels like they’re trying to push people like me out with all of this baby stuff. ———- App now freezes after every play. What’s up zynga? Been playing this game almost a decade now and never had a problem with the app. This makes 2 updates progressively worse than the last.

    Can y'all PLEASE offer a ONE TIME, LIFE TIME AD FREE payment option! I've been playing this game for years and I would gladly pay 5 or 7 bucks to remove ads forever! I'm SO tired of ads! I will go an entire week without playing to get away from them for a while. I would play more often and probably spend real money on coins if there weren't ads! Aside from that, it would be nice if it went by the dictionary! It doesn't take some very common words. Frustrating.

    Painfully ad heavy. They're everywhere, in the banner, after each play, and now they launch in the background (audio only) and you have to force close the app to stop them. This issue is across several devices and platforms. I truly regret not buying the ad free version when it was $10 for life instead of only 3 months now.
  • May 4, 2021

    By Sue Facey
    Since the last update there seems to be a problem with adverts that are oversized, e.g bigger than the screen. When this happens you can't close or anything its daft. Can you please check the aspect ratio of the adverts so you can close when the advert is finished. Last time I had to hard reset the device so there is some kind of error.
  • Progressively worse Oct 7, 2019

    By Caltagm
    This game used to be fun. Scrabble is fun. Just by itself. But apparently the geniuses behind WWF2 thought they could make it even better. So they destroyed it. The game is now so crowded with awards and levels and challenges and a ton of crap that it makes playing the game a tedious disaster. There is so much extraneous garbage that it takes 10-20 seconds to load the board every time I switch to the game. I’m not talking about opening it from closed. I’m talking about switching from my email or messaging to the game that is already in progress. Now it even bogs down when I play a word. The whole screen will freeze up for 10-15 seconds before eventually moving on. The game locks up for 15 seconds if my opponent sends me a chat message while I’m playing! And when the game is over and you try to start a new game, you can’t tell if it’s working because there is no response to touching the new game button. So you hit it a couple times and the stupid thing eventually opens four or five new games. It’s frustrating and ridiculous. There should be a way to opt out of all those absurd “gaming” levels and challenges and crap. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It wasn’t and now you’ve broken it. So this time it’s up to you to go make it right. Oh and there should be some way to provide feedback to the developer beyond writing a review.

    Have played this game since 2009 and it's great but it's so frustrating now with animations and pop-ups everywhere that just serve to get in the way of and slow down your actual gameplay. Please allow those of us who like to play fast the ability to play fast, thanks!

    Changes ruined the game Jan 16, 2021

    By Lori Smith
    I use to love it but now you cannot get enough tokens in one day for a reward. They are trying to force the players to upgrade. The ads are long and between each hand. I will never upgrade...I’ll find a new games to play first. Please go back to the old style of play.

    Too many ads and pop ups May 15, 2021

    By aaron borden
    I complained about all the repetitive ads and now they have an annoying pop up asking me to buy coins to swap letters, every five seconds. I'm not paying for %$#@ on this app. I paid for my phone, I pay to use it and for my internet... they need to stop begging.

    Ads ads ads. Ads that rather than closing when you click the x, goes to the product, that's just evil. Ads that cannot be closed so you have to restart the app. Terrible experience for what would otherwise be a good 4-5 star game. I only play this because my friend uses it, otherwise I would have rejected it a long time ago.

    I use to enjoy this game, but the ads are getting ridiculous. I spend 10 seconds to make a play and then have a 30 second ad pop up, several of the ads close button take multiple taps to make go away. I am sorry I have to quit your game. It's a shame for you because I have spent money on your ap. Would love an ad free version.

    HELLO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FIX GLITCHES IN THIS GAME !!!!! I am not able to play because of the glitches. Others are having the same issues and complaining on here that you aren't fixing the problems. The game isn't working right at all. I even uninstalled and installed it again twice and it still won't work. I went through help. Still no help.

    By Tim Sampson
    Please put the "Do you want to send this move" back to the bottom. Having it pop up in the middle of my screen is irratating. Your developers make these changes that they think improve the game but it's just so frustrating. The animation is slow and glitchy and unnecessary. Side note, love the new mini games, but the zoom has to go. Who is in love with feature that they keep pushing it? I would play but that feature is so frustrating.

    I like the basic Scrabble-like gameplay and that you can have multiple games going at once, but the level of advertising is RIDICULOUS. A minute long advertisement after EVERY single player move! I saw the Headspace ad at least 50 times in an afternoon!! I'm all for paying to disable ads to support developers, but it is not cheap and ad-disabling only lasts 7 days! This drags the pace of the game to funeral levels of slow. Yeah, it's a 'No' from me, dawg.
  • Apr 21, 2021

    By Patricia Spence
    Why can't we have the option to play a straightforward basic game? This is a nightmare of unwanted graphics, rewards coins, challenges, ads between EVERY move and so much 'clutter'. All I want to do is play the word game. All this rubbish takes up memory on my phone and slows it down, especially when loading the game
  • Don’t waste money on coins. Feb 8, 2021

    By zerokool23
    I’ve been playing since 2011 and noticed some things along the way. I’m finally irked enough to write a review. First off, most apps on here have a sole purpose and that is to make money for the developer and it seems to me like they use clever algorithms in order to achieve this with WWF. I always end up with all consonants or all vowels and then use a free swap that I’ve earned (you can purchase them as well) and then get more of the same essentially wasting your free swap. You might say that can happen in real life, but if you’ve played long enough you can almost predict it. I also know there are some games that I will statistically have no chance to win when all of the high value tiles go to your opponent. Again, just a pattern I’ve notice. I’ve also noticed that in the tile bag they always try to keep the consonants and vowels fairly even so I know it’s not random. Then in Quick Play where you need to have a ticket to play I would get glitches that to me seem like they are on purpose. For instance I started a game and could see my opponent already racking up points before the screen finished loading my screen to play. Sometimes I would use a ticket and it would take me back to the beginning screen and I would lose my ticket. I refuse to spend money on this app because I know it’s like playing Vegas. The odds are never in your favor. I still play it, but just know you won’t have a chance it certain games.

    Was great but the game itself went downhill. NOW CHARGING FOR THINGS THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY FREE SINCE THE BEGINNING and having unreachable (unless you plan every minute every day) weekly challenges half the time is just infuriating. Also, the same ads over and over are frustrating and makes me not even want to consider even looking at the product. I shut my game off and restart it whenever there is a long ad.
