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 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!!!

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 Really Zynga... what's up with you guys???? July 4, 2013
By Roey M.
UPDATE 9/30/2013. Last evening I began to play Words with 20 "Friends" and what do you know!!! Another change was made by the good fellas at Zynga. Now, with each game played, my Kindle gets a weird ad's video screen -- then Kindle proceeds to shut down and reboot. DO YOU KNOW HOW AGGRAVATING THAT IS? While you're raking in the money for these ads, your loyal users are fleeing.

UPDATE 7/17/2013: Early this morning I opened Kindle to play Words with Friends... to find an amazing improvement!! The game was revised, again, for the better! It's calculating word points again. That was a great revision, which began earlier this year, and was taken away earlier this month, and, the screen that was dropping down showing three other games to be played suddenly went away a few days ago. Maybe someone at Zynga is actually playing the game and reading our reviews. KUDOS!! I revised my review from TWO stars to FOUR stars (gotta do something about those pesky ads, especially the new video ones).

Really Zynga??? 7/4/2013
I turned on Words with Friends this morning and it jammed up my Kindle Fire -- again. I was getting used to that issue, but, then, after rebooting Kindle, a whole new Words with Friends version appeared. No questions asked. Here ya go... it's Updated! What a mess!! I'm currently playing 20 games with Friends, or maybe not. Does Zynga's employees even play with this game on a daily basis?? I've got 20 games that just slowed down to a crawl, because I'll need to add up points all over the screen to find the best score for playing each time. Then the new screens showing me who I can play with prior to going back to the main screen. This is not a highway where I want to know what exits are coming up. The prior version's screens were doable. Who was this update created for? As I said before.. Really Zynga?? Why not ask a panel of players before throwing these changes at loyal players.
