Some time ago the designers of this app, which up to that point had been just fine, came out with an "upgrade" which caused any selected tile to enlarge when positioned over the board. Supposedly this was to help you see the tile. In reality the enlargement was so great as to obscure the underlying board. Fortunately many people , including myself, protested and this hated feature was eliminated. But now it's back, or something similar to it. Now, when a tile is held over the board, the board enlarges to the point that only a small area is visible. If I'm trying to put in a long word I sometimes can not see the spaces where the final letters go. Once the tile is place and you hit the "play" icon the board shrinks down to its original size. You can also shrink the board by pinching it, but it immediately expands if you drag another letter to it. The effect is jarring and dizzying, making the game a chore to play.
Why does this company insist on "fixing" something that doesn't need fixing? Maybe it will once again unfix the "fix" but until then avoid this update if you can.
Ruined! DO NOT UPDATE!
Believe all the 1 star reviews. I’ve used this app daily for more than 4 years. They’ve made some improvements over the years to the interface and play but it’s been a fairly decent app. This latest update is completely unplayable. I don’t get any of the icons above/below the game board. 90% of the time I don’t get any tiles in the rack. I can view the board, that’s it. If I do get tiles, I won’t have the Play button so there’s no way to submit a word and actually play my turn. All my friends (I play via Origin only) names have changed to GuestXXXX. Even after they updated and figured out how to log into Origin, they still aren’t listed as friends.
Thank God for iTunes backups. I was able to restore the prior version. Of course that means no more auto-app updates since there’s no way to have iOS ignore an update if auto update is turned on. But at least I can still play using the old version.
RUN, DO NOT DOWNLOAD! There are ZERO improvements. Believe the 1 star reviews! Do they even test their updates before releasing them?
Wish I could give ZERO stars.
What a horrible, unneeded, ill thought out, and criminal update. The software developers should be fired immediately as well as Electronic Arts quality insurance team. This $10 app was perfect before the update. The app is now unusable, slow, and crashes frequently. I am very serious when I say that this is criminal. A $10 app should never ever have a patch that ruins the entire game like this. I lost all my games, the tiles no longer show up on the screen, the game is slow as molasses, and the new zoom feature is one of the worst implementations in a game I have ever seen. It is hard for me to conceive that this was just a bad software patch. Ea is too big of a company to do this. One has to wonder if they are trying to destroy a game that they are not making constant money on to reissue it as a freemium type game. I can see it now, you want to change out your tiles? That will be a dollar.
