besides that, i'm not getting notifications its my turn like on the mobile versions. Is it set up wrong, or does the kindle fire not let you know when its your turn?

I am having the same problem with the letters not. Staying on the right squares.I put it right over the square and it jumps to. 3 or 4 tiles away.

Until very recently I was told the value of the word I had typed in the squares, but now I only learn the value AFTER I hit submit. What do I do to get it back the way it was?

Same thing here. Plus now I'm getting ads in between each game and it didn't do that yesterday.

Having problems with Words with Friends loading on my Kindle Fire....won't load at all. What do you suggest for this issue? Uninstall the reinstall?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 5, 2013 7:09:49 AM PDT
Try that. I had that problem earlier and uninstalling and then reinstalling fixed it. But it didn't work with giving the value as I type or getting rid of the ads!

If there are so many of us who have this problem, why doesn't Words with Friends tell us how to fix it?

Would someone from Words with Friends help fix this problem? There seems to be a number of people who are experiencing this problem.

I doubt the developers of Words with Friends monitors this forum.

Why not try going to the developers website and asking there?

i have sent several e-mails to them and i get the same response, to install new version and got to zynga support. i did and again all you do is send an email, get the same response so far on every email.

Getting message of infected tiles in 'words with friends' on kindle fire hd. Anyone else experiencing this?

I had the problem of not getting a running value of the word I was putting together. And then, all of a sudden, it worked. That was month ago. And's not working.

Solving the problem might be as simple as letting those of us who play on the Kindle Fire have the option of getting the paid version!! You can get it on all of the other devices out there. I have had a variety of issues with this game and have been tempted to ditch my KF and get an Ipad!

When I put a word in and hit submit it displays a square of jumbled colors. Then the screen freezes or the kindle shuts down. I have run malware protectection and clean sweep. I have uninstalled twice. Anyone else having this problem?

The same happens to me but it's when I have finished the game. I have to shut down and start over. What can be done to fix the problem?

This problem started yesterday. I've tried restarting and it's still there.

Same problem here. After each play, instead of the usual advertisement I get corruption, screen freeze, then my kindle restarts.

Posted on Sep 30, 2013 3:47:53 PM PDT
Words with Friends crashes and revolts after each play. This just started yesterday. Just before it crashes it appears to be loading an ad, most likely it is a video.

Same here! Is this going to be fixed soon? I love playing it on my Kindle Fire and I have tried to reinstall a few times but this is not solving the problem. Please advice!

Problem seems to be solved this morning. Ads are back, yippee.

Yes, my Words with Friends is working correctly today, too. I didn't do anything, but it's working on my Kindle Fire. Whoever did something...thank you.

Awesome, I'll check mine out later today, hope I have good news too.
