Used to be good, but not so much now

For the past several weeks, my app has been notifying me of games and of people nudging me to play, and the badge icon will show several notifications. When I open the app, however, it doesn't list any games as my move for which I had been notified. Just today, it completely deleted a game I had going with someone—it doesn't show up anywhere on my app nor is there any history I ever had a game with that person or had been friends with them. They could still see the game on their end, though. This is so frustrating, as the app is resigning me from games because I haven't played in so many days, but the app itself will not show the games properly on my end and allow me to play. @ Zynga: FIX THIS.

Goodbye WWF

I’ve enjoyed playing WWF for several years. I had the original ad free version, which I was happy to pay for. I resisted upgrading time after time because I feared the ads would be awful. You stopped offering ad free versions, even with pay. Today I upgraded to IOS 11 which meant finally my old WWF app no longer worked. I downloaded the latest version of WWF, and things were just as I feared. Actually, they were WORSE than I feared. As much as I love WWF, it’s simply not worth having an ad play after every single move. It’s no longer relaxing but is in fact tortuous. And it’s. It just the ads. You’ve made the entire game obnoxiously busy busy busy. Sad day for me. I will miss WWF. And I’ve read enough of others’ reviews to know that you have had plenty of complaints, but do nothing. I have no expectations at this point.

Exasperated retired teacher

I’m having the exact same problems as those in review by Anonymous 37! Too frustrating to recount them all here. I love this game and play it always! Don’t know why this has begun happening. Now I’m fearful that those I regularly play with (who I do NOT know) will think I’m a flake who does not respond to Nudges or simply doesn’t play my turn in a timely way. I can’t even see most of my games! I receive notifications to play but then the game is not in my game list. I’ll see the number 25 in the app icon but will find only 2 or 3 games awaiting my turn to play! Messages to support team have gone unanswered and not fixed! Am dumping this app and will try a new download. Don’t know what else to do!
