Online game not perfect but overall product improved
Late 2015 update: display of your surname to other online players should be both OPTIONAL and OFF by default. "123 v. 456" score in list of current games could be usefu if done well, but you cannot tell which of the two scores is yours, so you still have to look at each game. Easily fixed with a different colour for your score, or always showing your score first in this context. Get some UAT done by real players and listen to what they say.
Historically, some of the one-star reviews here were ill-informed bilge that shows how misleading online reviews can be.
You can have the old colours if you want them, and you can still look at the progress of a current game, though hiding this in the dictionary isn't a great idea.
Most importantly compared to the previous version, you can now play online oponents, and you can use all the words that were censored before. As far as those points go, the old app WAS broken and they have fixed it.
Downrated to 3 stars in c. 2014 for two reasons. First the abysmal inability to update the board after an opponent has played, you have to swap to another game and come back. (Fixed later) Second, the default muting of chat, to protect you from unwanted chat with strangers if I understand correctly. The right way to do this would be an option to indicate whether you're willing to chat with anybody rather than just your Facebook friends.
New update majorly flawed
Oh dear ! What was a truly enjoyable PAID game has been adversely tampered with and the experience is now anything but enjoyable. My partner and I regularly challenge each other in Pass and Play mode with "teacher" and "best word" turned on. Was fine, but NOW (since the recent update) with both "on", the best suggestion stays on the screen with "pass to opponent". Now, if I pass, my opponent sees the suggested word with my unused letters still on screen.... and if I press the pass button see their latter board. Crazy !
Now.... we have used this "teacher" and "best word" option as a learning tool and it has certainly helped my fiancée especially with her use of language in the past. Sadly, until this flaw is sorted out then both options will have to be turned off. We will play less too. Not good for a paid game.
Take note of contributors comments... developer.... and get it sorted. Your reputation depends on your actions.... or beggar the thought... inaction. Not happy !!!
I bought and have very much enjoyed playing scrabble. I play against the computer not with other people and the latest changes are dreadful. The iPad is big enough to cope with the full board and having to constantly double tap is infuriating. Also the letters have been changed and not as easy to see as the previous ones. I just don't understand why these changes have been made which now means I won't be enjoying playing as much as I did which was very often. My husband is of the same opinion and has said he can no longer play on the current version. It's very disappointing. I cannot understand why there is no option to switch off double taping or go back to original.
