The game itself is mostly fine. The words they allow are mitigated by removing potential "trigger words" which happen to be in every dictionary but not in the game, because it might offend someone. So, when you have letters to play a word, it sometimes isn't accepted because of their ignorance of the English language. Simply add a control for users to see or not see words played by competitors. Or to play with certain words turned on or off. However, words with friends two seems to believe in word control as a means of deterrence. We've seen how well gun control works in Chicago and how well prohibition worked, so clearly it's the most effective method...... (heavy sarcasm) Full Review

I really enjoy this game, and I can put up with the ads. What I tire of are the extra prizes and this coin currency. What happened? Why do we suddenly need coins? And a 1500 coin limit? You give me a daily prize, not even sure for what, yet those two meaningless coins just vanish. Go back to the old days. Get rid of all the helper tools. Lose the coins. You're better than that. Full Review
Jillian Vargas Published date: February 11, 2018
The game doesn't always put my games when it's my turn in the right spot. It looks like it's my opponent's turn, when it's mine. Also games don't show up on the day they play. I play everyday so my turn games should not be from 4-5 days before . Sometimes I'll get off the game because I have no more to play and check back 10 minutes later and my games say they have been there for hours. Please fix. Otherwise the game is good and the lightning round is fun. Full Review
Kathryn Booth Published date: February 11, 2018
Love the game but this latest version is nowhere near as nice. It won't rotate onto landscape so must play in portrait which is not my preferred hold. I can handle the ads...except for the ones which don't come with an 'x' to take them away. This means clicking in and out of them until the picture and the x appears to allow going back to the game. This takes time I don't have if I'm trying to play before work or during smoko. The original was doing much better than this and was more user friendly. And with free swaps, hints and game play area it is getting further from its roots all the time. I am however enjoying the Beat The Masters so it got something right Full Review

02-18: this game has been fine, until it would not pay me for the Valentine Day event that I completed, that was a hundred coins. It also would not pay me for my daily my daily bonus. Please fix this!!!!!!!! Older review: Best game around and it keeps your mind stimulated which is what I love. Defintely worth paying too take ads out.....I love this n I'm not a game person! In this last update, WWF seems to be crashing a lot. Please fix love the game ð Full Review
Jimmy White Published date: February 17, 2018
I love this game so much! If you never paid the Developer any money for the app, you're gonna see ads. If you're too cheap to pay the bills, the Developer is gonna find another revenue source. I remember a long long time ago after I downloaded the first words with friends, I paid less than $5 or something so that I would never see another ad on that game again. Best investment I ever made! :) Yes, i said I paid for the first one, I had totally forgotten, was playing the game on fb messenger, (with ads) then I decided to check out words with friends 2, and I discovered I don't get ads here either. (I love this game) Full Review
Blight Wright Published date: February 13, 2018
Why does there need to be an ad that can't be skipped after every word I submit. It is getting frustrating since I want to move on to the next game but I'm stuck watching some add about dental health or other things. Can you stop doing these ads or can you make an option to remove ads Full Review
Will Ollerhead Published date: February 13, 2018
Engaging and social... Not quite scrabble, but a reasonable facsimile... A bit off-putting that one can just keep making up words until they're accepted, and the acceptable words are strangely inconsistent - certain proper nouns seem ok, but others are not. Not a fan of the new options to "cheat" by swapping tiles freely, or having it give you hints at to where to play, but all in all an enjoyable diversion! Full Review
Kimberly Mathews Published date: February 11, 2018
I truly enjoy this game and I have become a much better player. There are a lot of uncommon words accepted which can make it difficult but I still enjoy this game. In spite of all the ads it's a really great game. I have some really smart friends and family members, they be wiping the board with me. Still I keep trying!! Full Review
Jon Rumbaugh Published date: February 14, 2018
They give u mostly vowels or consonants all the time so you use up earned tokens buying swaps and have to spend real money to get more. It happens more than it doesnt so i know its programming. I won't and haven't spent one penny for this reason alone. Full Review
Pat Gillam Published date: February 14, 2018
App shuts down sometimes several times in one evening. Don't know how to clear out people who stop playing for several days without counting as a loss on my stats. Might want to clear out my stats and start over but don't know how. One player (high heel) always scores 4 to 5 times more than everyone else. Don't know how to play that many games to score higher. Full Review
Dee H Published date: February 14, 2018
Hate the new update! Made a perfectly good game almost impossible to play unless your prepared to buy coins. You cannot possibly play with that many vowels or would ever have that many 'V's etc in reality. The update is designed to make money totally regardless of the players. Horrible cynical effort from you guys who will not be getting my money for this! Full Review
Aimee Hartigan Published date: February 12, 2018
I didn't like this version when it first came out, but I've grown to love it. Lots of options for gameplay and ability to earn boosters without paying. Some accepted words are strange and words you'd expect to be usable are not. There are some glitches with notifications but overall it's a pretty good game Full Review
Tom Jones Published date: February 12, 2018
Tons of obviously fake five star reviews. DECEPTIVE AD Practices. Now they purposely crash the app if you try to back out of one of their terribly long ads that happen EVERY turn. Imagine having to watch a 30 second commercial every minute. Long timed ads that won't let you exit even when the time is up. Then send you to the site. Terrible long video ads. Now forcing sound into ads. Ads becoming longer and more annoying. Full Review
Maria C. Padilla Published date: February 15, 2018
Love the game, although the goals target points, should be equal for all players... I consider them to be too high for some people playing the game, including myself, versus others only a quarter of amount of points needed to get the badge... I'm Probably gonna leave the game, cause I can't play all day to achieve the points required... Full Review
amanda bower Published date: February 11, 2018
I'm enjoying playing it. but there are time when I put down a good spelt correctly word and the game won't allow it saying no such word. so far they have been. shut, seam, towels, that side of the game dose I admit naff me off Full Review
kelly M Published date: February 12, 2018
Great but the weekly point goal keeps going up, I hate it, my goal is over 14,000. Being a college student and working that's way to much time for me to be spending on a game on my phone for a badge. I would like to see this fixed, I have to now limit myself so that weekly goal doesn't go up otherwise I won't be able to reach it cause it keeps going up :/ Full Review
Kerry Clark Published date: February 14, 2018
Too many ads!!!! After each play you have to wait up to 30 seconds to continue. And the ads are mostly for scams. There are ads at the top of the screen. And no ad free option. Makes playing this a chore. If my husband wasn't more patient and less obnoxious about trying to beat me, I would uninstall. Full Review
Lance McGuyer Published date: February 14, 2018
The game itself is great but some time in the last few weeks this app has jumped to the top of my battery usage tracker and my battery is draining very quickly (around 1% every 2 minutes the screen is on). I update my apps frequently so it seems to be something in a recent build causing this. If it doesn't clear up soon I'll have to try uninstalling, sadly. Full Review
Maria Joao Published date: February 17, 2018
Really entertaining app with plenty of different game mods. Would rate this higher, but my "solo challenge* game has been stuck on processing for over a week and every time I hit "retry" it tells me something went wrong and to try again later. Full Review
Mike Robinson Published date: February 12, 2018
Is a great game. The app has way too much stuff gong on for people that just wanna play with friends. Badges, challenges, advertisements, etc slow it down. Maybe my phone is in need of updating to run all the applications in this game. Full Review
Andra Brooks Published date: February 13, 2018
Need to allow you to set a cap on how many games! Way too many ads. It takes so long to play 40 games watching the same nail polish ad 40 times. I end up closing the app out and restarting it, that's faster... Full Review
Published date: February 13, 2018
Overall a good enjoyable game, especially considering it is free. Lightning rounds are good fun. I don't like having to sit through an ad after every move I make (once a game is enough!) Also, the dictionary needs work, given that it occasionally refuses perfectly legitimate words. Full Review
Published date: February 9, 2018
Its got this weird bug with the chat. Anytime i click inside the chat box to begin typing, the chat screen starts upscrolling to the very top of the chat. If you and this player have been chatting for a while, like months, it can be quite irritating to have to scroll back down PAGES of chat to see the current conversation. Full Review
Jerry Welc Published date: February 16, 2018
Ads keep getting longer and longer. And the controls to get out of the ads are hidden or impossible to use. Sometimes I have to try 4 or 5 times to hit the X. Apparently the programmers are paid to make it hard to get back into the game. Either that or they don't care about a shoddy product. Full Review
Published date: February 11, 2018
The fame is freezing on the solo play (poets) . It's said" whoops, something wrong" for 3 days, so far. Aggravating. I've had to uninstall the game then install again to be able to continue playing solo play. Full Review
Shylie Ann Published date: February 12, 2018
Crashes after every single turn since update. Also the ads are HUGELY annoying. I used to have a paid version of this app but that doesn't seem to exist any more. I'd pay for it again if it resolved the current issues. Full Review
D Soci Published date: February 12, 2018
Words2 had a 5 star rating originally. Lately, every time I send a word it closes and asks if I want to restart or send feedback. Also, sometimes when friends send a word to me it never shows up in the My Turn section, it stays in Their Turn. This has happened to those I'm playing Words with too, causing us both to lose gameplay and points. PLEASE fix tbis and I'll revise my rating back to 5 stars. Full Review
Konner Johnson Published date: February 18, 2018
It's been great up until the most recent update. I don't know if this is happening to everyone or just me, but whenever I play the lightning round, the game acts weird. Whenever I play a word, the score doesn't add to my team's score. Not only that, but none of the other players are getting points either. Full Review
sameen farouk Published date: February 11, 2018
Needs to iron out a few bugs. The new challenge mode with bots could be a little harder with slower delays to play. It also needs an option where after a certain length of time, you can automatically choose to pass instead of lose. It would also be nice to have community matches and leagues. English dictionary a little bit suspect on some words and there needs to be a better way of seeing definitions Full Review
Sonja Holthaus Published date: February 15, 2018
Too much for a short review. Can't pay to remove ads - many and long. SmartMatch opponents automatically become friends unless blocked. Notifications in game when a past SmartMatch opponent logs in, even when blocked. Terrible algorithm for tiles - all vowels in every game, constantly have to swap. No doubt to make money. Full Review
iinsaayn Published date: February 12, 2018
Love the game. Got used to the new graphics of the board and tiles. And for all those who complain about ads..pay a few dollars and stop whining! New update seems to have made it crash all the time. :( Full Review
Published date: February 10, 2018
Love words with friends to point that I have to check words before bed and when I wake so you could say it's almost an addiction. However I have a couple of irritations one being when playing a few games at the same time I found i had lost games due to timing out and this happened because the games remained in their move rather than my turn to move. Needless to say I check now. Full Review
Nick V Published date: February 17, 2018
This game was good for many years until recently they have ads after every move in the game. Usually 5 second videos but it can be very annoying. This makes me very upset because it ruins the whole game. Full Review
Andrea Loescher Published date: February 13, 2018
On pixel 2 allmy games show has my opponents turn when it's not. When the game decides to load back to my turn I have to replay the same word. I can't be the only person to have reported this issue. This game used to be my mini escape from frustration.... No longer. Full Review
Declan Toolan Published date: February 13, 2018
I like the game but not in love with the app itself. The ads are unbelievably invasive and annoying. Some ads automatically play videos in landscape mode with full sound and are effectively unskippable. I don't mind ads in a free app but this app does it a very egregious way that just ruins the experience. I give it 3 stars because I have no problem with the game or the game mechanics, it's just the app that needs improvement. Full Review
Amy Champion Published date: February 17, 2018
It could be so much better if they updated their dictionary. I've lost out on so many points because words I've tried to place have not been valid in their eyes, however the words are in both the UK and US dictionaries. Full Review
Carol Fisher Published date: February 14, 2018
Fun to play with friends and people I've never met. When the ads pop up between plays, I use the few seconds to meditate on one of the twenty mysteries of the rosary. It actually helps me to focus! Full Review
Cecil Peacock Published date: February 12, 2018
I was a little apprehensive at first but I have grown to like it. I love the lightning rounds. I am having problems with the game crashing this morning after every word play and have even updated it and am still having problems with it still doing the same. So we will see Full Review
Donna Patterson Published date: February 11, 2018
I do love playing but don't like that the game accepts "Words with friends" words I've never heard of and says there is no definition available. Really? Even the masters you play against the game use invalid words, yet will sometimes reject valid words. Also, I can live with ads but don't make it so hard to get rid of some of them. And, I got nudged but my turn was listed in with my opponents turns so I would have timed out if I hadn't been nudged. Fix these problems and I'll give it a 5. Full Review
