What's New in Version 5.16.0
Hey SCRABBLE fans! We’ve made some behind-the-scenes changes to improve the overall gameplay. As always, thanks for playing.
Expensive app that crashes - not right
iPhone 6 iOS 10.2
This is an expensive app. It should offer real value but it doesn't.
Takes ages to start and often fails to get past the start screen at all. Needs to be manually ended with a swipe up and try again. Maybe next time? Or maybe not. At least 50% of the time it fails.
They've spent time and money on cheesy background music instead of making it work
You can play against an online opponent but you can't choose a friend only a random opponent unless you are prepared to log on with facebook and give away your privacy and have them make money/advertising that way. There is online chat which apparently they monitor and censor
Another option for having the right to play a Feind is foryou BOTH to pay them $10/month for an account.
Compare that to other subscription apps which are often free to download the charge less than that PER YEAR for advance features.
Just rapacious people with an awful attitude to their user base. They should offer something decent at this price.
4 out of 5 Good fun app. Wish you didn't have to go through social media to use it with friends but still fun.
Update 2 out of 5: out of action half the time on phone and iPad. Also, what the hell with the language censorship in the chat function? Keep your morals to yourselves - what words I use privately to speak to my friends is not for Mattel to decide. App has gone downhill in short. And been taken over by religious nuts possibly.
Dev team cut backs I imagine
It's a good game but that's not the product of good app dev. It's Scrabble so you know what you should be getting and it meets the minimum requirements, such as being able to play Scrabble.
But the app itself has only gotten worse over the last year.
You used to be able to play multiplayer games against fb friends, then they blocked it with no explanation- a four player game against friends was it's best feature.
It used to open first time, for the past 6 months it's half opened and sat on the splash screen until it crashes and I have to reopen. Every time.
Until this latest release the notifications stopped working so you couldn't tell if an opponent had played.
$10 just removes the ads it doesn't get you a better app or the features you want.
