Here’s a tip; when you tap the dictionary icon, and it says there is no definition available, IT ISN’T A WORD.
Plus: fix the Daily reward. If watching an ad is so important, and the only way to get out of that screen, at least make it work. “Video Not Available” probably shouldn’t be the result of hitting the button EVERY TIME. If that isn’t going to be fixed, at least let me leave the screen without hitting the button.
And fix the sound!!!
Absolutely broken dictionary.
Here’s a fun new twist you can play in-game! Whenever there’s no dictionary definition Words can give when its A.I. plays a word, forfeit the game! Now, that’ll have you forfeiting 75% of your challenge games, but if Zynga can’t be bothered to vet words, WHY SHOULD YOU?!?
Amazing how many words this app STILL has no definition for. But “QGP” is apparently a valid word that the A.I. gets to use. Shame that it still gets to use words you can’t. It’s almost like this game wants you to spend money as the only way to win.....
And now the solo challenge has played “TIDDY” as a word. And of course there’s no available definition. Of course, WORDS assured me it’s a valid word, even though there’s no definition. As usual, one star rating stands.
This is a game that I love to play. But adding all of these animations is unnecessarily annoying. Where’s the OFF button?
You’ve succeeded in taking the fun out of the solo games. They have gotten much harder to win. I never had a problem winning each one with 1 or 2 tries. Lately it takes 3 or 4 for some of them. Especially when words that have no definition are being accepted!! What is wrong with you people!!
THANK YOU for allowing us to turn off tile styles so I don’t have to see those colored tiles that make me dizzy. NO THANK YOU FOR TURNING THEM BACK ON when I DONT EVER want them!!
Yes, I LOVE the power ups ... but you could give a discount when buying more than one. And why does the number of coins I can earn have a cap?? The daily bonus coins went down from 3 to 1. How Greedy can you get? Other games increase them daily when you play a number of days in a row. And forcing me to click “great” to go on with the game when I really want to click “cheapskate,” just adds insult to injury.
If you want to reward me with coins just give them to me. Don’t put them in a box to be opened later. Let us shut off all these time wasting animations.
I recently downloaded this game about a month ago to play with an aunt of mine who lives far away. I play a couple of hours each day and enjoy playing. BUT I have been having technical difficulties with the app from the start and have received little to no help from technical support. The point of the game is to work for pages to “level up” or reach new achievements and for some reason, even though I complete achievements and they disappear as though I have completed them, I have not leveled up once!! I am still on level 1 even though most people I play and “match” with are level 14 or above. I have contacted tech support on numerous occasions on different dates but have only received automatic responses suggesting that I uninstall and reinstall the app. I have done this three times and nothing has changed. Now to make matters worse, there is even a notification bubble that will not disappear on an activity tab no matter how many times I click on it.
I fully intend on changing my review if there is resolution on this issue with the glitches because I do enjoy this game very much!
Every time I go into the app there is always some new add on forced into the app. Listen: I don’t want all that. Just stop it! At least give paid users the ability to turn off these annoying “features” you’ve forced us to deal with and click on. Ugh! Also you’re constantly creating ways to increase clicks to do anything. Want to get your daily coin? Here are two more clicks to do it in than before. Oh and you’ve now reduced the daily free coins from two to now one. This game grows annoying every update! seriously the game play, awards, and UI are sooooo BLOATED I’m annoyed every time my friend sends me my turn!
Listen to your users who are complaining all about the same issues. I see years ago complaints were logged and devs responded with some rote answers yet here we are still complaining about the same annoying bloated “features!! Ugh kill me
the original was waaaay better. you simply paid to skip ads. a fair fight. then what? well, now you can pay to swap tiles without missing a turn, and pay to know where to go. basically cheating. it gets a bit annoying to be honest. that's not how games should be played really is it. Oh, you cant find a word with your letters? well pay us and you can have another run at it. they ruined it. you dont have to reinvent the wheel. they just got greedy and must have the mentality that if everyone cheats its all good.....nah.
furthermore, sometimes it calls a "game over", when you still had tiles to play for the win (in close games)
so, since you are letting everyone cheat since becoming greedy and unethical, maybe you could fix that glitch with the extra cash?
I mostly like this game and play it a lot. At 72, it keeps my friends and me thinking all the time.
There is an annoying bug in the chat feature. If you make a typing error but don’t discover it till several words later it is impossible to move the cursor back to the place where you want start the correction. When you try to do that the chat window jumps vertically very quickly and you can never correct the error. You can’t even get back to the spot where you left off typing to finish a thought. At that point about all you can do is hit the send arrow.
Very annoying and should be fixed. It has been happening for a good six months and I kept thinking it would be fixed but since it hasn’t I decided to alert someone if the developers ever read this feedback.
This game is COMPLETE FREAKIN garbage. My wife beat me 8 times in a row. Fine, good for her. I FINALLY had her. I had 1 TILE LEFT and was able to play the word “GET” for 5 points but upon her making her last move I was notified the “GAME WAS OVER” even though I had one tile left, could play a word for 5 points and would have beat her by 2 points! She already cheats at this game against me (she calls it “STRATEGY”) and despite that I FINALLY had her against the wall FAIR AND SQUARE. And then this BS game ends the game one turn early and I LOSE YET AGAIN. I will NEVER recover from this transgression and I appeal to every authority in Silicon Valley to please reject this game until they make it FAIR.
I've always loved playing this game but the recent changes make it frustrating. The new solo challenges only last for a week but are now coming more frequently. Also, the words that the A.I.s play are a joke. I consider myself an above average vocabulist and I don't know or recognize the words half the time. An "easy" match has become more difficult and it's almost impossible to score 200 points to get 3 stars without using power-ups which in turn costs coins to refill. I think I'm going to stop playing the solo challenges and I agree that you should have the option to play them and not just have them show up in your game queue.
It is so frustrating to be offered rewards - in exchange for watching an advertisement- and have the game operators tell you that they messed up and the reward can’t be given as promised. Game itself is fun, but the rewards are a scam.

I have nothing to do with the review above, but when I try to “write review,” this screen comes up above with this review. I do agree with the review above however!! Lately the rewards have said “Watch ad for THREE coins,” and when you spend your time to watch the ad, they only give ONE coin! What’s with that? Pretty cheap when the rest of the world is giving you grace in these turbulent times.
Been playing Words with friends since the original app was released in the app store years ago. I love the updated words with friends two; however, going into “the store” just to claim 2 coins every day is super annoying. Why can’t this be automated?
Second, the beat the scholars in a week when you have to wait 8 long hours to play the next one is ridiculous. Or pay 20! Yippee. No. This should be 4 hours or less or 5-10 coins to unlock! I have not once beat them because i run out of time EVERY WEEK with 3-6 more to beat! I play words with friends several times a day so playing too little is not the problem. I want MORE!
