Product Description

Note from Developer:

WordsWorth, originally developed as an ad-supported game was initially released on Google Play. The same code base was used to recompile the build for Amazon users as a paid game and while doing so we disabled initialisation of all SDKs and disabled calls to these SDKs. However we missed removing the SDK from the build files and overlooked the same while testing the game too since the ads were not visible to us and submitted the same for the FAD promotion. Hence all these SDKs made their way into the build that we uploaded on the App Store even though we do not make any calls to any of the SDKs (except Flurry, which we use to collect metrics to improve the game experience and game quality). 
We take responsibility for our mistake and are truly sorry for the inconvenience it may have caused to all. This update fixes the issue as outlined in the Release Notes.

This app is the worst I have seen in ages in terms of how badly it violates our devices and our personal privacy. Please, do not install this. I will explain why, of course, but please... stay away from this app. This is a supposed "full version" game that has more Adware and Spyware than most "free" games! AND it has the Amazon IAP engine thrown in for good measure.

WOW, I've seen some seriously bad supposed "full version" or "paid" apps in my time, but this one is right up there with the biggest violators I've ever seen. This is nothing short of reckless-- but I'd vote for malicious. We are not cattle, do not farm us!

Twelve, count them, twelve undisclosed third party addons are included and silently installed along with this app.

Here they are:

ADVERTISING:
--Amazon Mobile Ads
--Chartboost
--GreyStripe
--InMobi
--MobClix
--TapJoy

LICENSING:
--Amazon In-App Billing

ANALYTICS:
--Flurry

OTHER:
--Facebook
--Twitter4j

The PERMISSIONS are as follows:
--Read only access to device state (Reads the unique DeviceIDs and also your personal info (including name) if on a cell phone)
--Get information about the currently or recently running tasks: a thumbnail representation of the tasks, what activities are running in it, etc (Inventories everything running on your phone/device/Kindle. This can be used to help build a behavior model on you)
--Open network sockets (Creates internet connections using anything it wants to, including 3G/4G/LTE. This can sip from your data plan if you have one)
--Write to external storage
--Access fine (e.g., GPS) location (Can see your location at FINE resolution!

Yet another spy program seeking private and personal information that is completely unnecessary for its advertised operation. Why is the author seeking:
"Get information about the currently or recently running tasks: a thumbnail representation of the tasks, what activities are running in it, etc
Access fine (e.g., GPS) location
Access coarse (e.g., Cell-ID, Wi-Fi) location
Access the list of accounts in the Accounts Service
Allows an application to receive messages via Google Cloud Messaging"

When was the last time you played a word game that needed to know your GPS location or your accounts?

Why does a word game app need to know where your are located to the exact street and house/apt or what other accounts you have?

And yes requiring this private information in a normally paid for app is spying, as this private information has nothing to do with playing or the general operation of a word game.

Spyware is spyware and does not belong in a game/app that the seller is charging the end user a fee to own. I can somewhat understand greedy programmers putting sypware in free games, but once you start charging a fee for a game/app, all spyware should be removed. Ratings will suffer for those greedy programmers who insist on putting sypware in paid games/apps. Fair warning!!!

As one who enjoys words and word games, installed WordsWorth on my Kindle Fire HDX and a few minutes later removed it.

Why did I remove it? Take one look at the invasive permissions applied by developer 99Games Online Private Limited, at least in this 4.3.5 version. Take a look at the review posted by Thom Bone and you'll understand more... he's right.

Also go to the Technical Details, then click on and the read the Privacy Policy before you download this app. Won't waste any more time, as with permissions like this, it's not worth the time.

Note: This app will not be completely deleted from your device until you go to Your Account > Your Apps and Devices and remove it from there. When it's gone you'll get the following message: "Success!
WordsWorth has been deleted from Your Apps."

1.0 out of 5 stars INVASIVE SPYWARE! BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD!!! February 19, 2014
Verified Purchase
This "GAME" wants access to your ACCOUNTS on your Android! It also TRACKS you via GPS. It spies on what you do with your phone or tablet, and receives "PUSH" advertisements and other garbage from the dev's internet servers, among other things.

Do you really want a game to upload your GPS location and your account information to a private server in
INDIA?

It appears that this was a FREE game that the developer decided to stick a price tag on so it could qualify for the Free App of the Day program where thousands of victims would unwittingly download and install this pernicious application. I could be wrong, but it's very likely, especially in light of the dev's other apps and the horrifying, invasive permissions.

Thom Bone did an excellent, detailed review of the nasties in this app. The only good thing is that this doesn't have In-App Purchasing, but since it's stealing your data, I guess it doesn't need it. >:(

AVOID!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Paid app with spyware -> NoGo! February 19, 2014
Verified Purchase
Contains spyware, don't bother to install or even download this. The authors have to understand that a paid app has to be spyware-free!

BTW: If you want to check your already installed apps for spyware, just try Addons Detector from the Play Store:=[...]

If your phone/tablet is rooted, you can even give these apps faked personal data with XPrivacy [...]
