Terrible technical problems the past several weeks--missing parts of the words played; spinning and spinning; strange dialog boxes popping up. Also, Android users should have the option to pay for ad-free games -- annoying ads burn data and invade game-play. What happened to finding new players on Origin?
A few years ago this app was great. I was happy to pay 2.99 for it. For whatever reason, they decided to make it free with ads and in-app purchases. That's annoying, but I suppose understandable. I don't understand why they had to link it with EA and their garbage Origin platform. For the last couple of weeks, the app has been totally unusable. Whoever programmed this bloated pile of junk code should be ashamed of themselves.
Great game but it has ads after EVERY play. After you've played a few dozen games it takes a full minute to open the app and most of the time it locks up. It's gradually getting worse. What's worse is the app sucks your battery down. From fully charged to zero in 3 hours on a phone that normally lasts 2 days without playing Scrabble. *** New problem *** game kicks you out after every play after several different ads have played. Very annoying having to wait for the app to open after every play.
There is an ad that shows up on the bottom of the game that is a semicircle which prevents you from shuffling, passing or exchanging letter tiles. The video ads between turns are bad enough, but this new ad appearing actually interferes with game play. You'd get your 4 star rating back once this add stops appearing. You got your 4 stars back.
This would have been a good app but the developers haven't figured out how to fix the main issues of this app. First off, waiting 1 day for someone to finish their turn? It should be forfeit if you don't make your turn in 6 hrs. Second, to get 3 same letters shouldn't be allowed if I remember it right. Do you know how frustrating that is? Do you even care?
The game is great. The app is terrible. This review says it's for an older version but I have installed the newest. Everyone on origin shows as a guest. No chance of finding anyone. They've told me for 3 years now they're going to fix this and each update disappoints. Several other things are terrible too. The ads. The ads. The ads. The ads that make the game crash. I could make several suggestions for a better game, but why bother. I love scrabble so much I'll continue using this terrible app to play it.
Hey SCRABBLE fans! We’ve made some behind-the-scenes changes to improve the overall gameplay. As always, thanks for playing.
**Best of Google play** Play it once, you can't go back to your old word game
