The Thought Police Have Arrived!
Great app, and they have started to iron out some of the awful bugs which plagued it's recent makeover. One thing that I have found extraordinary though is that the good people at EA have started to decide what words I can use in my private messaging! I play this game with my partner who is often away a lot and it's a great way of keeping in touch since we're both scrabble addicts. Often we will joke with each other and will use the odd swear word, especially if the other gets a bingo. EA have stopped you using swear words! What is this? Some kind of Orwellian nightmare scenario? Since when can a corporation decide what language I can use in private with another consenting adult? I suspect it's done to prevent abuse from strangers so if that's case then we should have the option to change the settings when we play. I know this might sound a bit worthy, but frankly it's really cheeky. What will they do next? Suggest who to vote for? Tell us which God to worship?
Good app with a few flaws
Good scrabble game which appears to have the proper dictionary! Couple of niggles dock it stars though. First, I can only play a multiplayer online game (which is what I got the app for) if I also have an ongoing game against the computer. If I don't the online game simply will not update after the other player makes their move; the only way I have found to 'unlock' the multiplayer game is to open a 1 player game and then go back to the multiplayer. Second, the chat does not offer support for the iPad Pro - with the physical keyboard active it is not possible to type anything; with the keyboard tucked away I get the 'old' iPad keyboard layout, not the pro layout which utilises the available space better.
Oh, and it is also rather importunate when it comes to requesting a review - hence why I am here, in the hope of being able to play a game in peace!
Scrabble HD for iPad.
I find this is a perfect app to spend time using, especially when playing random opponents around the world. I preferred the old version where you were given the Facebook ID of your opponent, although I can see how this might be abused. Why can't we be given the opponents country or at least the time zone they are in. I find it annoying if you have an opponent in a different time zone on the other side of the world and only get one move a day. It would be an improvement also to be able to change from the Collins dictionary with it's really quirky half worlds not found in any other dictionary. However it's still the best app by far and I feel lost if I haven't got at least one game on the go.
