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.
I love the game. Hate the app. It gets worse over the years. If you are not a Scrabble rules purist then play one of the other games like Words with Friends and save yourself the aggravation of this app. It has always been buggy and suffered from poor design but the recent problem with getting online games to work and lack of communication is just awful.
Still doesn't work! I have uninstalled and reinstalled this app on my Samsung S7 at least 4 times and it is stuck on refreshing the game list. I can't connect to Facebook and I cannot play any games that I used to. All them are lost! I'm definitely going to try the Words With Friends app as I hear it gets great reviews
NOTE: New update won't open the game. Please fix. The ads after each turn are no big deal. I like the game telling me what the best option could have been after I move (although they sometimes come up with ridiculous words). Good game, glad I found it. Updated review: all works fine now. Great game!
This used to be a wonderful app, but with every update it's gotten worse. Now for some reason origin won't work at all, only Facebook login. Now, after 6 years playing with the same person I can't find them and all my origin games(and 6 years of stats) just disappeared.
EA is pays no attention at all to the game playing experience. Looking up words is clumsy and counterintuitive. Chat feature has the sophistication of a 1996 PC. Yet they continue to refine the ad delivery process to make sure it is as invasive as can be.
We’ve made some additional behind-the-scenes enhancements to further improve your Scrabble experience.
Thanks for playing!
