I love Words w/Friends!! I keep several games going at once. I like to challenge myself & my vocabulary. You must have internet access in order to play.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get rid of Version 6.2.2! July 7, 2013
Made huge mistake of adding auto updates! New one does not tally score when playing! I stopped my sis from buying till they fix it. I used to play 15 games 3-4 times a day. I'm getting my online friends to switch to Scrabble. Sick of the constant ads on this version. It is annoying. Hope they fix it soon cause I used to love this app.

1.0 out of 5 stars Newest July 2013 update makes game much less fun July 8, 2013
The newest update for Words with Friends has dampened mine and my friends' enthusiasm for this game. In fact, two of my friends have quit playing because of this new interface! I hate the look, the slow performance, and the lack of word point calculation! Bring back the previous version or update this horrid version, please. It is as if a novice programmer hacked a really nice game!

1.0 out of 5 stars Words With Friends Update Sucks! July 8, 2013
Dear Amazon,
Please tell the folks at Zynga that the recent update to Words with Friends is terrible! Rather than improve or enhance the game, they have removed features, such as pre calculation of points before play, reduced the font on scores (cannot read the scores it is so small) and the "More" button doesn't give you any additional options, but provides a "Resign" button only. The ads are out of control! As a kindle user, I will stop playing words until these issues are resolved...and suggest that Zynga provide an edition of Words without ads. I would gladly pay for the application. I rated the app 1 star..because I had to...I really think this new update should get 0 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars New Updates... July 6, 2013
I've been playing this game for a very long time. And this is the first time I can say I HATE the new updates and changes! I hope they change it back! I miss not seeing the possible amount of points for a word a head of time as that was a huge help. I hate the drop down feature of the games you have going on to play and also it seems way more ads. My friends and I would now rather play scrabble, that's how much we all hate the new changes. Please change it back and don't ruin what was a great game!!!

love the ability to 'chat' with your opponents. Also, the ability to check your word before 'sending'. Don't really understand the point system though...

annoying ads and videos
I'm with you, the game was enjoyable until recently. Now all I get is ads and even video ads, what changed?
I also would like a paid version that is ad-free. Seems the apple products already have one, it's the Kindle Fire that hasn't the same advantages and yet it's a new product!
