Words With Friends
Yes, some of the ads are loud and annoying, but the absolute worst aspect of this game is the outrageously unfair challenges to earn badges. This week, my boyfriend had to complete ONE JQKZ word and I have to complete TWELVE!! Last week he had score 140 points and I had to score 1,650. It's absurd, and aggravating. At one point we had similar challenges and completed them each week, until eventually the challenge was unattainable (anything over 2,000 points requires too much playing time to complete in a week, and it had increased steadily to around 4,000). At that point, we both quit playing for a week or two, in hopes of seeing the challenge score drop. It did drop and I started playing again. My boyfriend waited longer. It's just really dumb and unfair to make challenges different for different individuals. If you (app developers) want to be sure to offer a challenge to all levels of players (occasional to addicts), why not offer three levels of badges each week, so it actually means something when a person earns that top, hardest to achieve badge? When I have to do 12x as much work as my bf for the same badge, that badge is meaningless. Honestly, if this doesn't change it will probably result in me deleting the app and not playing at all.
Dump the GIPHY! Fix the ads!
Just updating this review for the latest update. Two big issues, the giphys and the ads. The giphy pop-ups are still there and still annoying--stupid pop-up screens that tells you what word your opponent just played, and after you play, there's an equally unnecessary pop-up telling you what word you just played. You know, if I didn't know how to read, I wouldn't be able to play this game would I? So why do I need a screen interrupting me to tell me what word everybody just played? Completely moronic. I assume this is for the short attention span crowd, but the rest of us with a brain still find it incredibly stupid.
Some of the ads (Google assistant in particular) end with the playing screen still dimmed, leaving you unable to continue playing the game. I've repeatedly had to turn off my phone just to restart the app. I thought you wanted us to play the game?
Is ANYBODY reading these reviews??? This is my FIFTH negative review after this GIPHY crap started infesting the game, so I guess not. Maybe a giphy expressing my disgust would help? Very disappointing, Words With Friends.
Ads, Ads, Ads, even after paying.
The game is fun, as it always has been, but the home screen is a cluttered mess of begging ("You've paid us, now how about you pay for someone else, too?"), ads ("Hey, we've released Boggle. Why don't you pay for that one?") and other assorted UI clutter that makes it near impossible to find the one thing I care about - the game I'm playing.
Ads? After I paid for the feature that said it removed ads? I'll never give this company another dime or download another of their apps until this behavior changes. It's a shameful bait and switch. I wouldn't bother paying if you haven't already.
Finally, the dictionary is... questionable. There are a lot of words that work, but aren't actually words, and other words that definitely exist, but aren't valid. It's not game breaking, but it is a bit weird and frustrating at times.
