    I experience connection errors all of the time which throws me out of the game. It must be connection to the game as absolutely fine with connectivity to every other app I'm using on my phone. I paid for the 800 question pack yet I seem to have the same questions come up during game play. Full Review

    Good game however I paid for the Anniversary Pack a few months ago but it's now telling me to pay to unlock. I emailed through the contact us for answers and still have no reply. It's July 2017 and i've now lost all previous games that i had with other players and now all the games I bought gone. Emailed 'support' and got no response. Very pissed off and no one will respond or reinstate my question access. Full Review

    This game is pointless... I know, bad joke right? Nah its ok, has a few flaws though, I thought it would have typed answer instead of guessing out of a list. All in all, pretty meh. Full Review

    I purchased this game and I was logging in with Facebook and enjoying it. I had 5 regular opponents but suddenly it stopped letting me log in with Facebook. I had to open an account, lost my opponents and now I can't use my own pic as my profile and I have to type my email address & password every time I want to play . Hate this game now. Too much hassle. Full Review

    Love the actual game but the app crashes every time I open a match now. This has rendered the game unplayable. Hope it gets fixed soon! Update: Their customer service is worse far than their game. No interest in talking about the problem let alone solving it. Full Review

    I play it all the time. And I was a serious fan. But the final round kills me! I know I'm right, maybe not pointles, but right and the screen goes red. It's supposed to show me where my answer got to. Sometimes it skips the 2nd answer totally! Shoddy! And I paid for this! Full Review

    It's brilliant!!! My only criticism is if your spelling is slightly wrong in final it doesn't count!!! That doesn't happen for contestants on TV does it ?? So that is annoying.... Full Review

    Apart from having to painfully keep signing in again and again every hour or so this game is OK and the multiplayer aspect fairly enjoyable. However, inexplicably, it stopped working months ago and no longer loads. Refund? Full Review

    When you play for the first time, the jackpot starts at £1,000 and every pointless answer adds £250. So for example, £1,000 + £250 = £1,250. If you lose round 1, 2 or 3, you lose and next time you play, the jackpot starts at 1k again, even if you found at least 1 pointless answer in your last game. When you go through to the Final, if you don't find a pointless answer, the jackpot rolls over to the next game and is increased by £1,000. Again, if you're eliminated before the Final, next time the jackpot restarts to the same amount when you played that time. When you find a pointless answer in the Final, the jackpot is won and the next time you play it restarts at £1,000. The biggest jackpot won on Pointless currently stands at £24,750. Can you win bigger? Full Review

Have paid for all the packs too so very disappointed that the app is now unusable. Have tried reinstalling and clearing data but no solution works.
