I liked it but its just a fancier version of the 1rst 1 and it make a big deal about everything it also doesnt let me open my presents soooooo yeah . I wanted it to be better although it has much better graphics than the old 1. I downloaded it on my phone and it gave me several viruses. I liked the fact they worked together to make a new 1 though. It has better thought and alows u to play much more words. I guess this game was okay. Full Review

This is one of my favorite games. My only problem with it is some words aren't allowed to be played. But other than that is a great way to pass time and spend time with friends and family. One of the best things about it is you can get in touch with friends and family you haven't seen for years and have a great time. It doesn't matter if they are right next door or 3000 miles away it's like having them right there playing a game Scrabble like when you were kids. Full Review

Nice upgrade to Words with Friends. I like the new graphics and game play elements. I also like that I can earn powerups. Just wish that it would some how interact with the Messenger version of the game as I frequently get kept busy with it and those moves unfortunately do not count toward the weekly challenges. I personally do not have ads because I payed to not be annoyed by them. Please reduce the ads for those who cannot pay. Full Review
Colleen Duncan Published date: December 19, 2017
I like the old version better. It seems the new one is too busy and I really don't know about all these mittens and extra buttons with numbers are - apparently I'm winning things. I mean it's not a bad game to play as long as you aren't actually smart enough to know that there are words that it's not letting you play because it might offend someone or that they just haven't added into their dictionary. Btw, an iwi is a bird. Sigh. Full Review
Kate Simmarano Published date: December 22, 2017
Would be 5 stars if you could have a paid version without ads. They really detract from the whole experience. On my Samsung Chromebook, the game can only be rotated for tablet mode in the direction that makes the on/off and volume button on the bottom. so, I can't rest it on a stand with a lip and they get bumped accidentally when being held. Would be great if it rotated the other way. Full Review
Rebecca Farmer Published date: December 31, 2017
Playing the computers in single player modes is not fun because the words the computers use are most often unrecognizable, foreign, dont have definitions available, and use high scoring letters, so it kinda feels like youre getting cheated. And that was on the "easy" levels. Playing against real people is fine. Interface is pleasant and user friendly Full Review
Bethany Potts Published date: January 7, 2018
Awesome game, me and my boyfriend play it all the time and bing long distance it is fun to have a game we can play together. My one main issues is that recently it won't switch the players after the other has gone. It is starting to get annoying so me and him are debating to delete the app if it is not fixed in the next month or so... We really don't want o but it could be our only choice. Please can you respond so I know you have read my comment please so I know not to delete the app if you are fixing it. Thank you so much Full Review
Jaci Brummett Published date: December 21, 2017
It is a fun app but the ads suck. Some of the adds that pop up you cannot even close out of and it just ruins the game. If you have to have ads at least run ads that you can easily close out of without having to completely force stopping the app and starting the game all over again. It happened 2 times already. I would give it more stars if it weren't for those ads. Sorry. Full Review
Alex Morganti Published date: December 26, 2017
The new solo competition mode is fun, but it's got one glaring problem: you have to restart at "very easy" for each new competition. If I was having no trouble with the "hard" characters, I don't want to have to slog through all the "very easy" - "medium" characters to get back to a challenge. I'm going to pass on that feature until it offers starring difficulty settings Full Review
Sherry Manary Published date: December 18, 2017
It is a fun game. Some of the words that should be acceptable are not though. Like a heifer is a female cow. A legit words for farmers to tell if she had given birth to a calf or not. Another word like Zion is not just a place but an adjective as well. Bible adjective or verb words seem to be lacking. Even so, it is still fun Full Review
Mister Silly Published date: December 18, 2017
There are a lot of words which are not accepted in Words With Friends, and they took away or ability to suggest words, which is highly frustrating. Furthermore, some of the special items you can purchase feel like cheating. I like the hindsight option, because it can help develop your vocabulary or build strategy, but the other abilities you can purchase make a victory feel hollow. Other than that, it's a fantastic game, and a great diversion Full Review
Varun Jhingran Published date: December 18, 2017
Addictive gameplay and great new initiatives to keep players hooked! I would recommend you add the feature where I could find players near me... Secondly, I am unable to chat with anyone now... When I press send after typing in the message on an active game the message does not budge from there! Full Review
Nancy Clamons Published date: January 4, 2018
Generally, I love this game and site. Lately I have been having a hard time loading it and keeping it loaded on my phone. It doesn't always show that my opponents have played and that is my turn. There is no way to anyone know that it isn't working right. I am not the only one who has this problem. I would raise it back to 5 stars if fixed. Thank you. Full Review
Published date: January 3, 2018
I loved the old WWF (despite the ads), but this new version does not work well with my Samsung Chromebook Pro. The app does not fill the screen like the old app did and is generally much harder to use. The old app quit working, so I was forced to update. I hope in the future zynga considers the people who are using different platforms! Full Review
Devon Verheyden Published date: December 24, 2017
Been playing for a few days, wasn't happy with all the ads or the game play ad ons (free swap, word hints etc). Nice having quick matches and lightning round is fun. Devs, could you please include a running game count against friends? Show a history of wins and losses? Full Review
Deylin Perez Published date: December 20, 2017
What a great game! I read somewhere that Obama plays this game. And all I thought was... well if the president finds time to play this game, it most be good. I want to suggest an idea... What about having match challenges with 10 moves (rounds), similar to the solo game but with real people. ;) Thanks for such a great game. Full Review
Matt Micale Published date: January 1, 2018
Too many glitches. Moves often do not register in a timely manner, the lightning round is riddled with software errors making it unplayable, and the excessive "award" items are burdensome and add little of value to the game. I won't even get into the ads. The graphics are great, pretty much the only upgrade over the original version. Note to zynga: more isn't always better. Full Review
Debbie C. Published date: January 5, 2018
I have finished several games now that won't go away. They stay in my active games and can't be cleared. Also, at times it will say my opponent has too many games going and can't accept my invitation to play. A minute later, she initiates a new game with me and it lets us play. There are several things I like about the new version but it can be terribly aggravating too. Full Review
Lisa Wallace Published date: January 8, 2018
This version is just okay but unnecessarily busy. I just want to play the game and don't really want all the extra fluff. For the last few days when I make a move on some of my games, it is not registering my move, but it moves the game to the "Their Move" section. When I go back into the game, it is my turn because my last play did not save. Super frustrating because I think it is my opponent's turn when it is actually still my turn. Full Review
Kimberley Wasina Published date: January 7, 2018
Game is great to play.. I just have one issue, I was playing a solo game, won with my last move but game then said error occured please try again.. it's remained exactly the same for well over a week now. Only option says retry but get the same message every time... How can I resolve this? Full Review
Bill Peckham Published date: January 6, 2018
Compared to version 1: UI is slower and stutters, back button sometimes doesn't work, can't figure out how to get rid of solo challenge (tried it, meh, now can't delete it). The good: can still use version 1. Update: was able to uninstall and reinstall to get rid of solo challenge. Another nit: The handy color coded score on game list is gone. Full Review
Shannon McCall Published date: January 6, 2018
Absolutely entirely too many ads. video ads, 30 seconds long, cant skip, locks out your back arrow, only way around is to "close all" and re-enter app. This happens every lightning game, and every move on normal games. And it is getting worse. Laggy graphics. Frequently waiting for board to load, mid-game, in "lightning round" while play continues and scores rise. Full Review
Katherine Lock Published date: January 7, 2018
Many issues with the game updating properly. When one person plays, it updates on their screen but not the opponent's. Makes for delayed game play and a lot of frustration. And way too many ads. With apparently no way to purchase a no ad version. Never had these issues with the previous version. Full Review
Ron Shaw Published date: January 10, 2018
The ads in this are just unbearable, uninstalling. Wwf1 was good n ads bearable, wwf2 is terrible, and you can't even pay a few bucks n be ad free, it's all packs that expire. Can't go back to wwf1 cos keeps upgrading, needs to go. Really not worth a compulsory data chewing 30sec ad after every move!!! Full Review
Paul Shaw Published date: January 2, 2018
I love playing the game against friends. I hate the daily bonus popups and all the little drop down garbage that stops the game to show you. All this fluff is annoying and I'll never buy anything with micro transactions although I understand what you're trying to do, I still don't care about it. Full Review
Goonoo Muazzam Published date: January 12, 2018
I love the game but there are so many words that is in dictionaries but we cannot play them because they are invalid with the game. For example the words "AWOL", "ASWIM", "BITONAL" and so on. All these words exist but we cannot play them on WWF2. Please update the dictionary or add an option for players to add the word to the dictionary themselves. In the meantime, I'm going to play EA Scrabble until this problem resolves. Thanks for understanding. Full Review
Alison Toppin Published date: December 18, 2017
My minor issue is that I have to place each letter on the tiles, I think after 2 letters are placed the other letters should follow automatically once I touch the letter. And of course the pop up ads. The game is great otherwise. I recommend it to all wordsmiths who live a challenge Full Review
Kel Kel Published date: January 4, 2018
Fun game but needs works! I love and would give it 5 stars but for some reason the game won't let me finish the New Year Revelers event. For the pass 2 days it's been stuck on the 8th round and just keeps saying "processing try again later" Full Review
Zak Buss Published date: January 10, 2018
If you're going to have an English verified list of vocabulary to use stick to it. I've been told that many of the words I've chosen are 'not' words.. while the words the NPCs use are (i.e. Spanish words or other languages). Its ridiculous and makes your app look bad. 2 stars for poor quality. Full Review
K in Cali Published date: January 10, 2018
I would have given this game a 10 if there was not so many ads. I cannot and will not play it anymore. This is the first bad review I have ever given. So disappointed that you put ads we cannot even click out of after every play. You could at least give us a chance to buy in. You must make more money off the ads. Full Review
Rein Aia Published date: December 20, 2017
This has waay too many ads. I get it. Games have advertisements to make money and such, but why so many? After every turn? It would be better to do an ad after every 3 or 4 turns in a game against another person, or once every other game in games against the cpu. I have taken to closing the app to avoid advertisements. In addition, there are a lot of words in this game that have no definition, and when googled, i found they are not in english (for an english game) or are not real words. Also words that ARE real words cant be played. It gets frustrating. Full Review
John Stiles Published date: December 28, 2017
OMG the ads are ridiculous. The original had nowhere near this many intrusive & long ads. My girlfriend & I got it so we could play together but we're going to uninstall it for something else. We spend more time having to watch ads than play the game. Complete BS! Full Review
Scott Fisher Published date: January 4, 2018
Great job. You have now overimproved this game to the point where it is irritating to play. Too many popups, distractions, annoying fluff that take away from the game. The new board graphics are harder to read. The control positions have been changed for the 7th time. Condsider version 2 to be a significant downgrade. This game needs to go on a serious diet. Full Review
Jonathan Hartline Published date: January 2, 2018
So the game glitched during the single player mode and I think there's like a corrupted resume of some sort it's not letting me challenge the person again so I'm missing out on the new year badge. The lightning round "try for free" slogan makes it sound like this will cost something in the future, but I'm enjoying it for now. Full Review
Kllr Wolf Published date: December 16, 2017
Not bad, just wish it would stop trying to get me to play other modes. I hate having to click through several screens of the same stuff all the time to play a simple game. I paid for the no ad version so I did not get interrupted from playing the game. Full Review
Ashley Swindell Published date: December 21, 2017
We really need an ad free version of this. There are waaaaay too many obnoxious ads here. They pop up, make noise, make it hard to navigate, slow things down. This is ads to the extreme and it's not well done. I would accept buying an ad free version but there's simply no option. Full Review
Nicholas Dreer Published date: December 21, 2017
This is really sad, you say if someone purchased the ad-free/premium version in the old version to log in using the same account to achieve ad free game play but since this #2 ap coming out, my old Facebook account has been deleted.. Please implement a way to make this game ad-free again! The ads are frustrating and the game time-outs for people not making a move takes far too long.. IMPROVE THESE POINTS! Full Review
Courtney Benefield Published date: December 27, 2017
Evwry time I go to do lightening round it takes forever and the game just gives me the loading your board with the tile spinning. Such a pain.Not to mention common words in the dictionary are still not excepted while other uncommon words have been added. Awesome uncommon was added but what about sinple common ones that should be? Ads on this thing is crazy as well. I knew there would be ads but at least twice as many as the previous version? Maybe be more reliable if a game and the ads wont bug me as much and the game will be worth sitting thru the ads. Full Review
Kimberly Ryan Published date: December 27, 2017
I can't even get into the game. I have had the forgotten password sent several times over the last couple days and I have yet to receive it. I refuse to log in with Facebook. None of my friends want to be bombarded with posts about my game progress. Uninstalling as it's kinda worthless to me. Full Review
Zara Price Published date: January 6, 2018
Some of my active games are not updating/notifying me when it's my turn. Those particular games are staying in the "their turn" list when it is actually my go! Apart from that, love this app! Prefer it to the original even with all of the ads. Especially the challenges and the lightning games ð Please fix the little glitches and I'll increase the stars I have given. Xx Full Review
