Halfway Happy

I love this game. I had been playing for months and had accumulated some good stats. Then the app was unintentionally and unknowingly deleted from my phone. It was still available on my ipad which gave me hope, but even though all my local matches were still there I couldn't access my internet matches no matter what I tried. I added it back to my phone, but I could not retain my user name, games, or my old one was "already in use". I tried everything, over and over with no luck. Sadly, I started over with a new user name... If my old one is still "in use" why can't I get my access back along with all my history???

tiles at times not very random

When I end up with all consonants or all vowels for 6 or 7 turns in a row, I have to wonder what's going on. This happens a lot. And when you can only swap a single tile then get the same tile? It would be better to be able to swap 1-7 tiles. Swapping one tile is a waste of a turn, because even with the worst hand you can usually play at least one tile.

Great game

I enjoy this game. After playing Words With Friends, It is a nice break to be able to change words already on the board. I like the added feature of the word turning red or green briefly that lets you know if your play is an accepted word.
