What's New in Version 1.0.15
restores support for iOS 6
Loved the board game and this version is awesome too. I don't have any major problems with it on my iPhone 5s. The only tiny glitch is that when I press the "chat button" sometimes the "type" field doesn't appear. So all I do is press the chat button again and it I can leave a message. Other than that great game! I'm glad there is an app for it!
Better than WWF
5 stars. Would make it 6 if Hasbro could work on the following.
The billboard hovers into the field of play when a new response is made by an opponent. I have to constantly touch the "not now"option to make it disappear. Better to just turn on a small upper corner icon with count of new responses waiting than require a response every time. Then reduce the count as we respond.
Same when you drop a banner to Submit to confirm and tally the score. It hangs around too long. We often play several rapid fire games so the cutesy displays are speed bumps.
And it is not accepting words we have been using for years on WWF. Suggest using comparably acceptable dictionaries.
Good game. Wish it would allow you to make a move when you challenge someone. You have to wait for them to accept and after they accept, they have to waIt for your first move. This is annoying. I wish the "u" was not connected to the "Q". It would be more fun using the Q and playing over it with words like Qi, Suq, Qintar, Qindar, Qat.
