What's New in Version 5.18.1
Hey SCRABBLE fans! We’ve made some behind-the-scenes changes to improve the overall gameplay. As always, thanks for playing.
The newest upgrade is awful, frankly. Movement on the board used to be smooth, now it's awkward. Look is not an improvement either. I love Scrabble, but each upgrade gets worse. I remember waaaaay back when the dictionary would even provide definitions. Rethink!...a month later...gotten more used to the clunky new design, or more resigned. Sometimes, the board doesn't respond, sometimes letters go in wrong places. Scrolling through games was once easy. Whatever the new platform is, they need another.
Update: some improvement but games allowed to linger with the other player not playing. I had to complain when in half my games a week went by, even more, without being able to nudge, or force a forfeit if I'd managed to get a nudge cue. Now the same thing is happening again.
Update: once again, games languish, no nudge prompt. Such a simple seeming thing, why can't they get it together?
I am playing 12 games per day with a friend. Your Scrabble is totally trouble-free and is most enjoyable. Actually, it is amazing!
I also play Scrabble with my grand daughter. I wish you could add a feature so that when we check up words in your electronic dictionary, it gives you the meaning of the word as well. It can be in slightly finer print and a cryptic meaning is fine, just as in the print version of the Scrabble dictionary so, my grand daughter has a richer learning experience as well.
Overall, I still give you five stars. I mean "Wow."
I have been playing for years, and have always enjoyed Scrabble on my iPad. However, for the past 6-8 months, the "Nudge" and "Force Forfeit" options rarely work, leading me to have games in the "their turn" column for six weeks or longer. After a while, I am no longer able to start new games, because I have apparently met the maximum number of games allowed, forcing me to delete and reload Scrabble, which ruins my ranking. I have seen other reviewers with the same problem , yet there seems to be no attempt to fix the problem. Fix it, and I'll give Scrabble five stars.
