What's New in Version 3.6.1
We‘ve removed the “automatic tile recall” feature, per your feedback. We have also made some behind-the-scenes fixes and improvements for a better, smoother experience.
Give the 'new' Scrabble a chance!...
Ok, I have to say that with the updates I was immediately in the 'hate this' zone because my wife and I loved using our iPhones for the tile rack™ And playing it like a board game... That said, we played anyway between our two iPads. I have to say that it IS a better experience. We no longer have to hover between one board while looking between our rack and the main board while waiting for our turn, and considering words. In fact this is better we found. We get a 'private' board and it allows you to truly see the board, and your tiles, and play with scenarios, look up words, etc... While u wait your turn. Plus it removes the 'cute' but extra step of putting your tiles ON the board, then moving them into place.
As for those complaining about having to use Facebook..... Come on, everyone uses it and do what we did, make a FAKE FB page that you use just for gaming! My wife and I friend each other, or make two fake accts and friend each other. Then use it for ALL your game (slots, cards, racing, board games....) and media (VEVO, IMDB, PANDORA...) logins. It's perfect. Funny too. At times I visit my fake page and it's slammed with game posts and ads to all my fake friends, ha-larious. But seriously, it's great. Just be sure you're signed into the correct FB acct before you sign up for new games, and have fun!. :-)
Huh - I wrote the review below (in quotes) about version 3.3.4 in May and am surprised by the similarities in my concerns. The intermediate versions got better and fixed most of the bugs I hated (but added auto recall, which was annoying). Now we have the latest and greatest version, and all of a sudden I have to log in every 27 seconds (OK, slight exaggeration, but really frequently), and it tells me I don't have a network connection when every other app on my iPhone & iPad do have internet connections. So, although I'm glad they removed auto recall, I had to downgrade my review because now it doesn't work at all! ".Overall I really like playing Scrabble but the two most recent upgrades have made my playing experience worse by far. First there was the FB log in snafu, and now that they've fixed that, there are several new problems. 1) the little notification number on the app doesn't update (e.g., it says there's one game waiting for a turn when in fact there are zero or five). 2) It logs into Origin but can't find my games that are through that route. 3) Even when there are games waiting for my turn, when I open the app it tells me I have no games waiting and asks if I want to start another until I do the "pull down to update" move. 4) Agree entirely about the Avalon nonsense. It's selling out. On the plus side, I like having the letter count although I haven't used it much yet."
PLEASE give me my old scrabble
I was updating one game and all of a sudden they were all updating at once......When my husband pulled up his scrabble game..we were in SHOCK.....We loved the old game as you could challenge yourself..That is the game I paid for ..not this new game that is the MOST USER UNFRIENDLY GAME I HAVE EvER tried to play..We do not want this game...You can not play yourself..The lovely teacher even changed..I can see a class action suit as this is NOT WHAT I PAID FOR!!!! I beg someone from EA to please bring back the chance for us to play the old game...This is so unfair for you to change to this unfriendly game....PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let us download our favorite game..PLease..not fair if you do not...
We have not played this new Scrabble Game..I have emailed several times to ask how to get the Old Scrabble Game Back....searched the Internet also....Apple told me to go to the trash and blah blah...but I can not find the trash on my iPad...no there..........I paid for the old game....I was updating one thing and everything updated at once without my permission....I want the game I paid for....This company is so big they really do not seem to care about an individual who paid for a product...They changed the product that I paid for..I will not spend one more dime for any games and I am not going to stop emailing about this...It is not fair....It is the worst customer service on this planet.
