Customer Reviews

Last update was horrible!!

I recently updated the game and at first there was no more hindsight, word radar, or the lightning bolt/exclamation point. I read through the reviews and saw that another person had the same issue and solved it by restarting their phone. I restarted my phones me and it worked. Now there's another problem. It seems to be that I can't see a game that's been played back to me. I'll get a notification on my status bar stating that it's my move but when I click on the game, it's not there. I play at least 15 people a day and its really annoying to have to restart my phone EVERY SINGLE TIME to play a freaking game back. I click on the notification, it takes me to the game, it still says their move. I have to restart my phone for it to show me the other person has moved. PLEASE FIX!!!!!!!!! The last update was horrible!!!!!!

Edit: it's been at least a month now and I'm still having the same issues. I have an iPhone 6s Plus and when someone else makes a move, it still shows as my turn. I have to jump through so many hoops to finally get a game to show up. I have to clear out my apps, restart my phone, uninstall and reinstall the game and sometimes even that doesn't work!!!!! I am tired of worrying about my game timing out because you guys can't fix a game!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE FIX!!!!!

Wish there were some consistency in "valid" words.

I've discovered "valid" words I've never heard of just by moving letters around, but when I consult the app's dictionary, "no definition is available at this time." Then I can't find those same words in two other dictionaries. I'm playing in English, but I find some Latin, French, German, Spanish, and Italian words are accepted--but other common foreign words are not. A disproportionate number of Scottish words are acceptable--why? Many foreign terms for monetary units, even archaic ones, are accepted--why this strange subclass of acceptable words? I do rather like that some Chaucerian and Shakespearean words are acceptable; other common ones are not, though, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason behind the selection. Some accepted alternative spellings must be very unusual, since I can't find them in other dictionaries. Some slang words are accepted; other common ones are not. Some proper names are accepted; others are not. I wish the app could just be synced with a reputable dictionary in the language played.

Ineffective Marketing

Dear Words With Friends (and many other "free" phone game apps),

I'm trying to make sense of your marketing scheme. In lieu of paying for the game, I've excepted that 👀 = 💰. That being said, if I've closed out of a particular advertisement for an app 257 times, what makes you think I'm going to be interested in the same app 30 seconds later? Did you have some analyst come in and tell you "research shows that if you show them the add 258 times, that's where the money is!" How is it that everyone else has grabbed on to the concept of metadata in marketing, yet you feel inclined to just run the same ads over and over as if you were daytime television adds telling me about mesothelioma? It's lazy. The advertising isn't my issue, it's your ineffective marketing that's driving up the wall! You need to make money, my time is valuable, market something we might actually buy! Get your cut from it! It's not a new concept!

The only other thing I can think of is that it's a ploy to get users to buy the game instead of suffering through the ads. While that may work to an extent, you could have two potentially lucrative revenue streams instead of one. Just a thought.

Thank you for an amazing game, but the ads could be so much better.
