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 THE INVISIBLE UPDATE/aka, THE UPDATE DISASTER April 14, 2014
By Kathryn
LOVE the game, but CANNOT play it on my Kindle!!!! It says there is an update available. My Kindle is set to do auto updates on my apps. Apparently that didn't happen, but I think I know why. It WILL NOT let me manually either. It says to update click OK. Clicking OK just takes me to a website that looks very much like what you would see in an app store. NO MENTION OF AN UPDATE IS IN SIGHT!!!!!! It will not let me at w/o the update either!! So as of 4/15/14, this game does NOT work, so don't bother downloading it!!!!! It's been a non functioning app for DAYS. My Friends are certainly not happy because I can't play, so neither can they! PLEASE FIX IT!!!!!!!!

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 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!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars This is getting absurd July 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
I love the game and play it on different platforms. There is no consistency between them. The Amazon version has just upgraded again, and it has lost the best option that would add your tiles prior to submitting. It is really aggravating. The free version that is only available on Amazon is so bloated with advertisements I'm about to quit using it.

If things don't improve on how Amazon restricts the developers, I'm going to get rid of the Kindle. (I own three of them.)

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!
