    Hey! Squaw is a word. It's in the dictionary. Look it up. I'm sorry you find it offensive, when used in a game. What I find offensive is a dictionary with words missing, on purpose.

    I've been playing this app for a couple of weeks. At first, no problem. Suddenly this morning, the app deleted all of my online game records and my Best Word online. After a while, only my first online game record showed up, along with my Best Word for that game. What happened to all of my online games? Even the 2 games I was currently playing in disappeared. Vanished. I was playing one computer game and one online game. They suddenly disappeared. What’s going on?

    The Scrabble pop ups are very annoying.

    I play ALONE against the computer AND it is constantly playing words that are not in any Scrabble dictionary. Example: “Vegas”, which is presumably a nickname for Las Vegas?

    My wife and I really enjoy playing this game together and we both enjoy the simple, straightforward interface and classic gameplay look and feel. Nothing complicated, no need for in-game purchases, no bothersome relentless over-socializing - just pure relaxing fun between just the two of us, me from the comfort of my recliner and her from the comfort of her couch. Great fun for a couple of surly old curmudgeons.

    Monumental hassle trying to create an Origin account and adding friends. Origin is a joke. Simply can't send friend requests sometimes, and when it does work, the friend can't see the request. I wanted to play this with my daughter. And now that I finally got our accounts set up and friended... the stupid Scrabble app REQUIRES YOU TO LOG INTO ORIGIN EVERY TIME YOU OPEN THE APP. Every single time. Ridiculous.

    Too many bells and whistles and time-wasting animation, not enough Scrabble. Reducing to one star because it now has a new problem: when playing against the computer, the human player invariably goes first. The poor computer opponent is pathetic enough without that additional handicap.

    February 2018- Dropped to one star since I had to delete and reload the game twice in a month. It is the only app that has this trouble. September 2017- rev. A Moved to four stars. Notifications seem to work now (although they did not seem to work when I first updated.) Game seems stable. Load time are better. Still cannot see move list after a game has ended. This is why I cannot give five stars. September 2017 The latest version seems more stable, load times have not been as bad. But it is too early to tell for sure. Notifications seem to be working now. I will give this latest version a few more weeks, if I do not have to reload and it does not hang when loading I may bump my review up a few stars. May 2017 Still broken. Still needs constant reloading from the app store. Still no notifications. Clunky interface. Slow to load. Latest update April2017 Notifications are still broken. Still have to delete and re-install weekly. Each update breaks MORE things. This game worked much better a year ago. Wish I could give zero or negative stars. Latest update Feb2017 Notifications have stopped working. Once a game has completed I can no longer see the moves list or read the chat log. Still have to re-install occasionally, and still taking way too long to load and connect. The amount of data that needs to be exchanged between the server and the app is trivial. WHY is this app so slow? Review down to one star, since the latest updates broke more things than they fixed. Latest update Nov2016 Game hangs waiting for updates. I have to delete it and reinstall every couple of weeks. Latest update 1May2016: The program is still a resource pig, I have to shut all other apps on my iPad to get it to load. It still takes a long time to load... odd since this is a dedicated app with local storage. It would be nice to be able to see the moves list after the game ends. The moves list become inaccessible as soon as someone goes out. Update on the latest version. The network is much better now, I have increased my rating by one star. The app seems to be a pig, I have to close most other apps on my ipad to get it to load. I do not like the new trash talking notifications, a simple "such and such has played" would do. The screen seems cluttered, and I do not like the board sliding back and forth. I wish they would quit changing the fonts, they are not bad, but they are no better. I find the constant tweaking annoying. ---- This is an update to my old review. The network issues are getting bad so I have removed 3 stars. The app takes a long time to "update" nearly every time I open it. It often will not connect with Facebook to retrieve current games without multiple tries. Lastly, the app crashes instantly on my iPad Air unless I have nearly every other app is closed. Scrabble is not a complicated game to run on a computer and the amount of server data is minimal. What the heck is this app doing? The pop up ads on the paid version are gone for now, so I have added several more stars to my rating. There are several minor issues that still need work. I was unable to play with friends outside the USA last time I tried. The licensing folks need to work some sort of deal to allow this. Notifications and player status do not always automatically update for some reason. I do not understand the "muting" of the chat feature, this is lawyer stuff I am sure, but I told the app my age so the mute should not be on be default. The dev team seems to break as much stuff as they fix, the design team seems to improve about as much stuff as they ruin. But after years, they finally have a fairly well polished app. I will give it five stars in hopes that they leave it alone! ------ The app itself is quite good. I like the teach mode, computer game play is good, I like the ability to select dictionaries and I love playing with friends, family, and even random opponents. I wish it had the ability to bluff, but I understand the difficulty of implementing such a feature. The reason for the low rating is the pop up ads that started with the last update. I bought the paid version to avoid the pop up ads. I feel cheated. I would also add that it has recently been unavailable for two weeks.
  • I so agree with another reviewer about the “Irritating New Feature”!

    I get notification that my friend has made a move and it’s my turn. Find what I think might work but like to check the dictionary first. All good. Return to the board. Start to hit play and IT STARTS OVER as if I weren’t there 15 seconds ago and am still actively in the game! Why put my tiles back on the rack? I didn’t exit the game! Sheesh! I love playing scrabble online. Just don’t make it annoying, please.
