Since last update the game takes almost a minute or longer to launch. Game is almost non-responsive when trying to start individual games sometimes taking 3 or more 'touches' to acknowedge a touch. This game is heading down the toilet fast! Extremely displeased lately and the adverts after each turn, some up to a minute long are horrendous!
Game is great despite the over long adverts. However on every device I have played it on (smartphones and tablets) it flattens the battery in double time. It seems to hog the cpu which gets warm on each device I've played it on. Anyone else have this problem? When exiting the game I have to go to the device settings and clear the ram to stop the battery draining and the cpu getting hot. Seems to crash a lot too!
Slightly better after latest updates but still not as enjoyable to play as it was before the major update last year. Glitchy, slow to start and to play. Constantly disconnects from network and having to log back in to facebook all the time is annoying. Can be a real chore to play. Might try and persuade my regular opponents to switch to another version. Jan 2018 update - EA, I'm a balding 46 year old man - why are you constantly showing me ads for Pantene?
Notifications don't work. Adverts interfere with game play. Games do not load or refresh properly (seems to be due to loading adverts timing out). Just an awful experience. If EA had any decency they'd make a single payment purchase option for Android users to remove adverts.
Would be 5 stars if I could lose the ads I can deal with ads you can shut off... Having to watch a video is ridiculous. Rather pay a fiver for the app than watch a gin advert 50 times Oh and why is pilates not in the dictionary? It's in Collins online?
Overall, I would not download this game for the following reasons. Firstly, how come so many words are not recognized? Seriously, June is not a valid word, so are there only 11 months in the year then? However, words like upta do! Secondly, this app drains battery life as though is using your phone to power a planet. You need to invest in your own power station, if you want to play this game for 10 -15 min sessions. Thirdly, even for a free app there are too many adverts. I actually forgot I was playing a game and was about to open a bag of popcorn for the feature movie to begin. Will be uninstalling now.
