Lots of fun and challenging trying to find the best placement for a word to maximize your score. The one objection I have relates to the dictionary. When checking a word's meaning in the dictionary that any opponent played, and I don't recognize, the dictionary will sometimes say that it is an acceptable word for Words with Friends, but no definition is available at this time. I believe that when playing a game having to do with vocabulary, no word that does not have a dictionary definition should be allowed! What determines if it is a legitimate word if not found in a dictionary? Full Review

Have been playing for years and the enhancements keep improving it. This is not Scrabble. It's a different game wth its own features. Use those features and enjoy. It's hard enough to earn coins to make use of the features a rarity rather than the norm. And Word Strength (always available) is great - you can just accept your lower value word or challenge yourself to work even harder to find a better one. It's a great game - especially as once you've had a go, you can leave it for hours (or days!) and only play when you have time. ð Full Review
Dorothy Savino Published date: February 24, 2018
Good game. Only problem there are games that left for 16 + days and you can't get rid of them. Even when you nudge the person ... nothing happens. This impacts on starting new games with those who want to play! Please sort this out. Ads too long in version 2. Would rate better if this was sorted. Full Review
Lynn Holtz Published date: February 23, 2018
It's a lot of fun but... 1. The ads seem to be longer in the latest version, 2. It's ridiculous to have words that don't mean anything, 3. The lightning race against a team is the best part but there needs to be some good prizes for winning, 4. I love the Solo challenges and I wish they would be scheduled to coincide with the big special events that give about 80 points for a win. I tend to be finished with the Solo event before the big special one begins. Full Review
Elliot White Published date: February 24, 2018
They should call this game Ads with friends. You are forced to watch an ad after every turn, some as long as 15-30 seconds. Even if you close the app it will force reopen. No option to get rid of ads. No option to contact creators. Brings this game from a 5 star game, to one you will delete and never play again. Very sad they choose to make it this way. Full Review
Mrs S Published date: February 24, 2018
Great game - love everything about it, and would give it 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact that it causes my tablet (Hudl2) to freeze when trying to load a particular advert. Can't tell you which one, because it only gets as far as the whirling loading arrow before everything locks up and forces a reboot. Full Review
Monika Matthee Published date: February 24, 2018
I enjoy the game, hate the ads that get longer and longer. But I also have a gripe with the solo challenge. Sometimes it just gets stuck on 'Processing' and when I click on 'Retry' an error message immediately pops up saying 'Whoops. Something went wrong. Please try again later.'. I am then unable to get any further in the challenge. I have updated to the latest version, uninstalled and reinstalled the app but it is still stuck in the same place. Very annoying. Full Review
Bram L Published date: February 24, 2018
I like it, obviously. I can't seem to connect my fb-account though. It says my fb is connected to a different zynga account and that I need to relog in. I then do that, get an fb message asking if I want to connect again (again?) and then it gives me a fail-message. Full Review
Elizabeth Kerscher Published date: February 21, 2018
It is fun, challenging and a great way to keep in touch with many old friends through the text feature. Only thing, some ads are too long before you can opt out. I make a mental note not to support those particular products. Full Review
Colby Murphy Published date: February 24, 2018
Great game, but an ad every time I play is beyond dumb. You have tens of thousands of players every day, not to mention every other game Zynga has. Limit your ads, and then give us a pay to remove them. Greedy Full Review
Kip Laverick Published date: February 22, 2018
Nice improvements from first one. Only gripe I have with this app is when it downloads an update it always launches and interrupts whatever I'm doing. I've dropped calls and lost significant progress in other games because it just launched on its own after an update. Very annoying! Otherwise I love it. Full Review
Linda M Kain Published date: February 24, 2018
Chat was better when it was per game, not per person. When referring to a certain play, one has to call out the particular word played so the other knows which game is being referenced. The "acceptable words" only acceptable to the game without definitions are deceiving, especially in the solo challenge. Full Review
Alison Hardy-Dusto Published date: February 24, 2018
I love this game! It's my favorite. The only things that I would change are updated graphics and for some reason the game has a glitch and gets stuck once in a while and I'm not able to go further. I've uninstalled and reinstalled but it still happens. Full Review
Kathryn Rae Published date: February 22, 2018
I liked the original app better. Every day I am instructed to "tap the box " to receive daily reward. I tap and it tells me to close the app and try again. When I do this, it then says "you've already received your reward, come back tomorrow "??? Full Review
Keith Kimmell Published date: February 23, 2018
This game itself is a great. But the ads are extremely intrusive and in some cases completely freeze up my phone. And I don't have other apps running and have an octa-core processor with plenty of ram. Either be more selective with ads, or reduce the frequency. Full Review
Pete Weinman Published date: February 23, 2018
The game is not bad but I don't know why they let people pay for "cheats." also, way too many ads. Some of the ads are videos with sound and cannot be stopped, that's unacceptable. There should be a "paid" version, I'd pay a couple bucks for it. Full Review
Published date: February 24, 2018
I agree that there are too many ads. I would pay for a version without ads. I think the dictionary is inconsistent, in that, some abbreviations and proper nouns are allowed, like "Henry" and "Celt" but moist are not allowed. Also the dictionary is not up to date with words like "zika"... mostly it is a pretty good game. Full Review
Phil Parker Published date: February 22, 2018
Dictionary should be aligned with accepted published dictionary such as Oxford English , otherwise it's good. The winning of "coins / awards etc" should be across all games and far more per win, far more frequent to add interest. Full Review
Lise Mcguff Published date: February 23, 2018
I like this game. The add are annoying and some of the words I've never heard of but im learning. If ads were cut it would be a 5 star from me Full Review
Dianne Antwine Published date: February 23, 2018
Words with Friends 2 is a lot of fun, and I like some of the new features. The Solo Challenge had been interesting until two days ago when I ran into a problem with a game getting stuck. When I check to see if I can play, I get a message that says, "Something went wrong. Try again later." Later has not worked and I have not been able to play. Full Review
Beverley Huttmann Published date: February 24, 2018
Ads are very tiresome. Would give zero stars if poss. Used to be a great game. Just reinstalled after a hiatus and now the ads have ruined playing experience Full Review
Horace Jones Published date: February 24, 2018
Not as good as the classic. Too many ads, the algorithm for the Solo Challenge lacks the real world restraints with improbable letter allotment and it doesn't allow mixed language. Full Review
Dawn Woodward Published date: February 24, 2018
I do still enjoy words with friends, but I do not care for the coins, wish we could collect them for a t-shirt or something else. I feel that the functions they support are a form of cheating. I use them to change the color around my profile pic. Otherwise they ate a waste for most of us. Full Review
Robin Ryme Published date: February 24, 2018
I enjoy playing 'not Scrabble' with my mother, but everything that is not the actual game is terrible. Millions of pop ups about coins and invites to play strangers. The worst is the unskippable and lengthy ads after every move played. Full Review
Published date: February 24, 2018
Too many ads with no paid option to get rid of them. Some ads have sound and the setting to mute them doesn't actually work. Very frustrating! Full Review
John Christopher Howe Published date: February 24, 2018
Great updated version of the old app. The main difference is there is a heavy push to use the in-game currencies to gain advantages. When playing against those still using the older app, it presents an unfair advantage. But overall a very good app. Full Review
Julie B Published date: February 24, 2018
The last two updates have made any music I'm listening to go in and out while I'm playing Words. It actually pauses my music too. And to add my game is still showing Valentine hearts. Hope this can get fixed. Thank you. I've been playing for 7 years. I love this game. Full Review
Stephanie Published date: February 24, 2018
I'm still a huge fan of this game, I don't like the ads but for the most part it doesn't bother me. It's a fun way for myself and my kiddos to increase our vocabulary. Full Review
Ria Crisp Published date: February 24, 2018
I'd give anything to get rid of the bloody advertising. It doesn't make me want to buy the product, souch as never see that product again. Full Review
Dean Heywood Published date: February 24, 2018
All in all reasonably great. My only problem is lightning round is too short. Should offer 750-1500 point games. Also only allow words that offer meanings. Ban word radar when ã7 tiles left. Too easy to finish a game Full Review
AnnieBee Published date: February 24, 2018
Ive been playing this game for years. I love it and ive had great chats with some of the players ive met here. . I know the ads are overwhelming but i purchased it and its been really worth it since i am playing so many games Full Review
Vickie Foster Published date: February 22, 2018
I love WWF2 all the new upgrades are awesome. I do wish one thing; that after you play Solo matches it would tell you what level you beat. I'm having a problem playing some of the solo challenges . Full Review
Mr Blacky Gaming Published date: February 23, 2018
What annoys me most are the ads. Do a move, ad pops up. Do another move, ad pops up which quite frankly is getting on my nerves. Game is great, would get a 5* but the ads are ridiculous. Full Review
Lee Coleman Published date: February 24, 2018
It connects poorly. Additional single player games and challenges don't, necessarily load. I have had to reload the game many times just to get one of the m to activate. Full Review
Mike Pepper Published date: February 24, 2018
Confirmed: this app Uses Too Much Battery! Constant drain. This new version is loaded with "features" to promote more playing but which add no value to the game or, worse, actually make it irritating and a battery drain. Going back to "Classic". Full Review
Emma Dowds Published date: February 23, 2018
Have played this for years and love it. However Words 2 allows paid cheating through Swap+ and Word Radar. Please restore it back to a fair game! And also please introduce different board set ups to give variety, with DW, DL TW and TL in different positions. Full Review
Renata Brooks Published date: February 23, 2018
I would give it 5 stars but the solo challenge doesn't work correctly. It just keeps saying processing on the next level. I've uninstalled it and installed again, with the same issue. Full Review
Jeffrey Snuggs Published date: February 24, 2018
First off cheap rewards and the second is that the game choose to go first all the time and for some reason the the Challenger gets the Q all the time. Note the past three days unable to play due to problems with the game creators and unable to collect credits for the previous day's. Note word's in the dictionary like azuki isn't accepted. I'm really starting to hate this game because you wait and wait for the Player to make their play and nothing for two days or more in which makes you resign and they win. Look at how many times I resigned because the other side is taking days and weeks before your company says enough give him the game. Note that I have five game's going and unable to finish any of them because the other person isn't responding. Two of the games are five days old and instead of the Brain without a brain I have to wait until they decided to give me the win. This is the worse game I have played where you wait and wait weeks days for the other side to respond. Two weeks have gone by and no response. They start the game and after that nothing. Note that when you try to cancel the because the other player hasn't played in awhile the game continue to play the other player even when you cancelled. Gadje is a word look it up. The people that designed the program needs to increase their vocabulary. Note that you can't complete any goals because the lack of plays by the other players. Full Review

Since latest update, continuously closing, getting error messages stating oops, something went wrong, try again, black screen..well, you get the idea..please please fix..i love the game but this is so frustrating and makes game ridiculously difficult to play. Thnkx. Full Review
Published date: February 21, 2018
Great game love being able to play friends all over. Must a pity that some of my friends name changed to zeng #ÃÃÃÃ to a series of numbers and letters. Sometimes hard to see whknuiur playing. Full Review
