Thanks for playing!
I'm addicted to this scrabble game. I play several games against friends and relatives and supplement them with games against the computer. I love the Teacher feature and the dictionary, but there are many words missing from the dictionary that should be there, and many words the computer comes up with that can't possibly be real! I wish the dictionary could be updated with more specialized words, such as those I use regularly I from the field of archaeology. I also play WWF, but I definitely prefer this Scrabble game.
Two years later I'm still addicted to Scrabble for iPad, but I'm disappointed by several changes. It appears that the game no longer supports three-way+ games. I've been in a three person game with my son and his wife for years, but they tell me I would no longer be able to start a game with more than one person if I tried. The current game gives us very strange win/loss messages since it no longer recognizes three person games. Very disappointing! I'm also having trouble seeing the recent words made by my two opponents. I have to kill the app and re-start it in order to see the complete board. Often the last move is dangling in space unconnected to any other word due to the missing word played by the person just before. Also very disappointing.
Update a disaster
I've had Scrabble HD for years and have never had a problem. Apparently the manufacturer decided to fix something that wasn't broken and updated the game as of today, April 10. Now it won't open. Don't bother buying this version until you know it's been fixed.
Okay, here's an update as of August, 2017. The problems I referred to above have been resolved pretty well, so thank you Scrabble people. But I do have another complaint and I'm wondering if others have had the same experience. It seems that one of the many "behind the scenes improvements" made by the Scrabble editors has changed my English dictionary by refusing to accept at least 1/3 of the previously accepted words. As a result, my latest version is not nearly as much fun to play. In addition, my husband supposedly has the same version on his Ipad but he has the full dictionary of acceptable words that I used to have. So apparently his Ipad was never updated (and I checked his App Store and it doesn't appear that there is any update currently available for his version). What's going on?
Notifications simply do not work
Notifications only come through to the last device I opened the game on. As someone who switches very frequently between an iPhone and an iPad, this is really very annoying, as it means I often miss notifications when I switch devices. None of my other apps' notifications behave like this. For example, if I make a move on my iPad but then leave the house with my iPhone, leaving the iPad at home, I don't get any of my notifications on the iPhone unless I launch the app on there first. But since I only open up the app when I have a move to play (and get a notification), that's a problem. Also, notifications never come through on my Apple Watch at all, even though I have notifications for that app set to mirror on my watch from my iPhone.
So please fix this for good. I've been having notifications issues with this app for ages and it's really making me not want to use this app anymore, as much as I love the game itself.
