Great game!


Really fun to play. Moves can be made quickly. Lots of score drama. Great for all levels of ability. Love the glow! Makes plays quick and lively, love the stats and also love the chat! Totally worth buying the ads free and glow word.

I play GrabbyWord too, it's a fun game with dramatic score variation but does not compare with UpwordsLite in the overall sheer joy of the game! Enjoy!!!

By the way, do the UpwordsLite creators know how many people are playing the game online?

Wish I could give it five stars


The ads are ridiculous. I understand that you get pop up ads with the freebie apps, but this is OVERKILL. This is my favorite game and we have the board game to play with friends when they come over. Some of the words on this app are not actually English words or spelled correctly. It’s almost like the game cheats, lol! However, I love word games and this does keep me occupied in a pinch. There’s room for improvement and the biggest issue with this would be the pop up ads. It crosses the line from ridiculous to downright insulting.

App not working correctly


I have been looking for this game for quite some time now. I have been so excited since I found it that I've been telling everybody about it. However I'm somewhat sorry I did that because the game doesn't work that well. I have been trying to play with my Facebook friends. I have logged on to Facebook through the game. And still cannot find my friends. I have sent a message to you stating the same and have not heard anything back from you. Still disappointed but hopeful
