Teacher & Playing v. Computer
This review is limited to playing against the computer and the Teacher feature. I do play WWF (Words With Friends), because my friends play. I'm also a purist and like playing true Scrabble. I love that the teacher shows me how I could have scored better. I wish the dictionary feature gave me a brief definition, instead of just saying that my word is a valid English word. WWF, does give definitions. I would have given 5 stars if I could get definitions. I don't know if the $7.99 version gives definitions. A number of reviewers dislike the ads. I'll assume the ads are why this one is free. I haven't had connection issues, but I play mostly at home, so my phone is using my wifi connection instead of the cellular one. If you like true Scrabble and like improving your points per word, this is a good free app.
Too many problems
I love Scrabble but I have had to discontinue playing on my PC because the ads conjure up "long running scripts" that freeze the game. The only way out is to bring up Task Manager and shut down the browser.
I understand how ads make games like this free to play but I really resent these ads being forced on me. I will conscientiously look elsewhere to avoid watching the same boring, stupid ad running after every move. A third complaint is the letter values are so low. Almost all of them have a value of "1" which makes forming long words fruitless. I'm spending 90% of my time with Words With Friends. No ads, good letter values, no ads, more fun, . . Did I say NO ADS? I am seriously thinking of dropping out of Scrabble because it raises my stress and frustration level in a game that is designed to help me relax.
You Can't Do Better Than This???
We're Scrabble nuts at my house, even taking our portable game to restaurants. I don't think I've ever complained about too many ads in an app; I know they're necessary evils and I'm pretty good at suffering thru them and just getting on with the game.
However, lately they freeze and won't get off the screen! Any attempts to get rid of them just causes them to restart, only to freeze again seconds later. Then today when an ad finished, and I couldn't get rid of it to get back to my game, I had no choice but to delete the game and reinstall just to play.
I love Scrabble but I don't need this. It's staying deleted. Want some advice? Don't develop any more apps, whoever you are who created this. You obviously don't know what you're doing.
