What's New in Version 3.7.2
Hey SCRABBLE fans! We’ve made some behind-the-scenes changes to improve the overall gameplay. Update now to play against a computer or challenge friends with Speed Play. As always, thanks for playing.
Server issues & Player attitudes hurt this fine app
Functionally the Scrabble game is excellent. But application support is hideous: for almost two weeks recently the app could not be played. Once restored a number of games were forfeited to the opponent since I had supposedly had taken too long to respond, even though the server was the cause. Yes, it's only a game, but clearly the software company has little concern for users.
I have played a number of games that drag on for over a month. The casual "I don't really care" user abounds, with many stopping play in midstream--the "I have to win user" who quits when not winning. These are persons I did not expect to meet, so something to watch out for. And, yes, the server problem comes back from time to time for shorter periods. For all the years this software has been around, could they not keep it working? The have had plenty of practice. Developers: a well-earned zero. Players: some excellent people here but many not worth a dime.
App: functionally very good, server stinks.
As compared to Words With Friends
-- quicker play time, as players cannot wait two weeks to make their next play as they can in WWF
-- love the Teacher feature, which allows me to see moves I could have made and therefore makes me a better player
-- I grew up with Scrabble, I like that they have official lists and dictionaries that they use and that I can download, there is lots of online support from regional Scrabble clubs like lists of all the two and three letter words
-- there have been perfectly legit words that I've tried to play in WWF that it would not take, one was "realtor"
-- my only critique of Scrabble app is that it crashes a great deal when I am trying to play timed games with random opponents, and when it does I lose the game and so it brings down my ranking
Get it right already!!!!!!!
I've been playing this Scrabble game for years, I love the GUI. However, the small kinks that inhibits the way we play are getting in the way. I paid for the game and I expect the game to perform as it should, without any major or minor issues. A few months back we had server issues and the player couldn't play their games because of server errors. Now the native IOS keyboard will not rotate to landscape when I rotate my IPAD, it's a nuisance and I really would like to have that fixed. I gave you a good rating in spite of all the problems . Please fix this and I don't want anymore problems with this game I'm really getting fed up. I will delete the game and only play WWF if this continues!!!!!
