I am having problems with Scrabble and my device is registered - it was pre registered. This new Kindle Fire was for a present and Scrabble was one of the two main reasons. I'd used Scrabble on an older Kindle and now I find that it isn't working on that either. As Scrabble works via facebook on my laptop and on my iPad this problems seems to relate particulraly to the Kindle.

Scrabble keeps freezing at end of the game. So frustrating. Help?

I did try, but nothing happens. It says to log on, but then it says connecting and nothing happens. This is the same as it has always been.

Mema, I had not been able to connect to Facebook for the last two days, but apparently whatever was going on, it allowed me to log on this morning around 7:30 am EDT. Give it another try. Try going to Options and Log in from there.

I play Scrabble on Facebook and on my Kindle Fire. There is a "button" to be able to connect to FB from my Kindle and nothing happens. No way that I have found to sync both places. Anyone know what to do?

Marilyn, I have a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 LTE, so does my daughter, and I also purchased one for my mother-in-law without LTE. We all have purchased the Scrabble for Kindle Tablets. It works just fine on our kindles except that unless you lock the screen it turns upside down. What is the problem on your husband's kindle?

Yes, the Kindle Table Edition of SCRABBLE doesn't work properly. I bought it for that game and it's horrible and there is no way to fix it. Frustrating. John I went to the EA website and you have to register on their site and give all this personal info that I don't think I want to give to get their attention. So now what do I do??

Have you tried Classic Words Free? It plays just like Scrabble and it's for free.

@Marilyn: Have you told EA (Electronic Arts),the app developers that you are not happy.

SCRABBLE

Is that not the Scrabble game that you want?

I am furious. I just bought the Kindle fire 8.9 for my husband who loves to play Scrabble on my old Kindle. I paid a lot of money as all of you had and we don't have what we paid for. This must be fixed by EA whoever they are. I hope they upgrade Scrabble so we can all enjoy it on our Kindles.

M.J Picken- I know how you feel. How can two things as good as Scrabble and Kindke Fire HD not be compatable with each other?? I play Words with Friends on Kindle but Scrabble is so much better.

I find that if I play a random FB game and start it on my Android phone, it never appears on my Kindle. It shows up if I plan on my PC or on my phone. There is something wrong with the syncing apparently. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I am not signed into Origin, but that makes no difference either way.

UPDATE: The new version of Scrabble for the Kindle works beautifully. So glad they fixed all of the issues. It will still crash from time to time, but the UI and performance is good.

Thanks, Larry!! That fixed it on my Kindle, too. I bought mine just in time. Can you believe they have increased the price to 9.99!! Folks paying that much may not be too pleased with the upside down issue.

Have you tried playing the game again once you have restarted your Kindle. Mine still loses connection when I turn the Kindle back on. I have stopped using it now, but on my Samsung phone it stays connected.

I just bought Classic Words Free last night and it's free and plays the same way Scrabble does and it works fine on my Fire HD 8.9.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 2, 2013 3:59:43 AM PDT
I found a fix for this: Lock you Fire's orientation into landscape mode and Scrabble will start up right-side-up. It only starts up-side-down if it is unlocked.

Dianne says:
Yay!! Finally Scrabble is compatible with the Fire. Beautiful graphics and it allows me to hook up with up to 3 family members or friends to play in the same game. My only gripe and hope, is for the update to fix the orientation. As Larry C. Reeve says: It is upside down!!

This is reason enough for me not to buy a Kindle Fire.

Downloaded Scrabble for HD 8.9" this morning. Functional but it does not pay attention to the orientation of the Kindle. Scrabble works now in landscape mode only, and it is upside down (volume and on/off switch on the left). That doesn't work well with the folding cover stand.

I had my money refunded for the purchase of scrabble as it is not compatible with kindle fire HD 8.9. I just downloaded a word game similar to scrabble for android and only part of it works. It does not allow input from player. So another disappointment as I too love scrabble

I did not know all these points, thanks. I have Scrabble on Ipad, and it's harder to find a game against a live person. Everyone I know plays Words With Friends

I believe this not to be completely correct: here's what the original Scrabble on the Kindle Fire featured, which is not available on the HD version (I own them both):
1. Words on HD is shown in landscape mode only, making the tile views much smaller
2. Scrabble has a teacher mode assisting you in making improvements
3. Scrabble has a dictionary that speeds up play
4. Scrabble allows you to see your points in advance of playing them
5. I've had Words on the HD constantly bomb out, requiring restart

Overall, the Scrabble on Kindle Fire is a 9.5 out of 10 points; Words on HD is no more than 5 out of 10, at least in my opinion. I agree with the many others who believe the producers need to fix this quickly by bringing out the Scrabble app; otherwise, this HD is going back to Amazon.

Words with Friends is just as good, lots more players
