What's New in Version 5.16.0
Hey SCRABBLE fans! We’ve made some behind-the-scenes changes to improve the overall gameplay. As always, thanks for playing.
Creators of this app can learn a thing or two from WWF, in terms of ease of use and functionality. There is no reason a slightly high-priced app like Scrabble should not function seamlessly, for the most part. Instead of focusing on bells and whistles as updates, why not take a deep dive and fix all network and site issues that render this app kludgy and poorly designed, inevitably turning users away? For example, why would you hide Origin's login button in Options (could it not stay next to FB's login, like where it was previously?) Why does the app constantly log you out? It should simply not do this until you tell it to... never had these mundane issues with WWF. Unfathomable that someone at EA has yet to figure out how to type in login credentials directly onto the space provided for it instead of a bar/field above the keyboard (seems elementary)... again WWF gets it. Had high expectations from this game/app and would love to continually use it, but, sadly (to date) it just doesn't deliver.
Sad and new problems
Recently the board omits previously played words even if the are the first word played. All the app says is oops. After a few hours or days it puts back the missing word. Also it adds up words quite incorrectly sometimes omitting to give credit for other words if several are made. I don't think the admins care!
I appreciate the update to current dictionaries at last. This should be done within a week of new dictionary availability! For such a simple app is is disappointing that they seem to make such little effort for it to be a good experience. It is still slow but less often unavailable by " poor network connection" teacher is better and less obnoxious. I like seeing last move played. I would like to place a tile on the board and scramble just the other tiles... More like the real experience. I no longer get the keyboard at right angles to the game. A great relief!
Such Wasted Potential
No matter what I will still use this app because I love the game Scrabble and this app allows me to play the game Scrabble.
That said, so many problems. Number of turns displayed on app icon badge for iPhone bears no relation to actual number of turns. Next game function while in game does not work properly. App freezes not infrequently. Messages are not saved after game end - this means you can't cogratulate a random at the end of a good game because there is no way to message. Game does not keep track of head to head score - no way to see your match history with your friends. Game does not keep track of average game score. In addition to those, there are so many other advanced stats game could show.
EA - please just make this app better. It is not hard - just a little more effort please.
