This is a great way to exercise your brain. For me, as I get older, it's important to keep my brain active & this game does that effectively. And it's fun too! I bumped into my niece the second day I was playing, which is super cool. I don't see often because she lives in TX & we're in MS. She kicked my butt by the way. Full Review

Its a really nice overhaul of the old version. The only issue i have is the push notifications for it. There are times I have to open it to see if it's my move or not. Other times it works good and sends the notification. It's just a little glitchy in that aspect. I am currently using a Galaxy Note 8 and it does the same on my iPhone 8 Plus as well. So it's definitely something within the game. Once thats fixed I will gladly update this review and give 5 stars. Otherwise great game, very fun and addictive. Full Review

The game is challenging and excellent brainwork especially if one is competitive enough to want to accomplish their weekly challenges. I also enjoy the solo challenges. In addition the new decorated eggs challenge adds a whole other level of advanced thinking. I like to use the word radar most, but also the hindsights, see where you can play, and free swaps. Full Review

Way to many adds. I'd prefer actually paying to remove the adds Especially given the number of games you have to play to win their little awards only to have to view an add every single time you make a play. It's almost tempting to quit with the number of adds. And I just discovered that on my Samsung galaxy note 8 that a lot of the games I thought the other person quit were mistakenly due to this app not working with my phone Full Review
Becky Gustafson Published date: March 14, 2018
I love the game but way too many ads. I understand the need for ads. No big deal. But after every single play is a bit much on this type of game. You also get forced to watch the same ad start to finish 5 times in a row or more. if i wasnt having fun with family i never get to see i would delete it at this point. And the majority of the ads are long, not short blips that as I said you are forced to watch start to finish. Full Review

Love the game, frozen out of solo play right now. It says try later, but still frozen. Hope you can thaw me out!! Tic toc tic toc...Ok you fixed It! Thank you. Gave you 5 stars now. I will pay any monthly fee to get rid of those damn advertisements. The X doesn't mean anything anymore. Aaggg...please consider. We love this game!! Full Review
Christopher vonRichtenhoffen Published date: March 15, 2018
I love the game. Don't like that the screen can't be rotated; I can't set it in the keyboard slot with the charger plugged into the screen on my Samsung Notepad. Don't like that I can't see the challenging opponent's rating before accepting a challenge. Use a dictionary word search like Scrabble. If I want to change the first letter of a word, I have to erase the whole word instead of just one letter. Full Review
Karen Watson Published date: March 15, 2018
A great app. However when playing the lightening rounds the games stick and other people are taking their turns and you can't. On occasions the app says "uh oh you can't join" and also on occasion throws you off a lightening round game. It has also said "bad link" and won't let you do anything. It's very frustrating. This needs sorting!! Full Review
micheal geldart Published date: March 13, 2018
Too many ads. Solved just exit the game after your move.. Than reload it. Takes less time than watching a useless ad, and most likely won't count as a watched ad for them costing revenue. Don't be a sell out. Do one ad every 30 mins of game play. Not every move. Full Review
Kay Risley Published date: March 14, 2018
Too many distractions. Notifications are off. Not notified of some games ready for my play, and others do notify?? I get some games where only yellow lines show where words were played but the letters do not show up. I have to close the app and reenter and it is ok. Annoying. Full Review
Elisabeth Neff Published date: March 12, 2018
Love Words2! I play it daily! I never have any problems with the app and it's fun seeing the stats that are tracked. My only complaint is there is no option to buy out of the ads. If I'm missing it, someone please point me in the right direction! Full Review
Laura Petchul Published date: March 15, 2018
I have become SO addicted! It makes me use my brain, so it's worth it! You can play when you want, taking your time or playing a fast and fun version. It's the best word game I've found! Full Review
Patricia Rogerson Published date: March 13, 2018
Im sick of closing the game after every move to reset it- instead of wait for a 30sec ad all the time. But otherwise i really like the game. SUGGESTION: set message chat like fb messenger- allowing u to see when the other person has viewed ur message. Can see the dots when they type, but just doesnt show if they have viewed ur covo or not Full Review
Shay Trewyn Published date: March 13, 2018
I absolutely love this game. But am giving only a 3 star The adds are a major problem. Freezes the game up and the adds are to ling. Not having a option to go add free is enough for me to seriously considering removing game because they are that annoying Full Review
Kaley Johnson Published date: March 10, 2018
Absolutely love the game itself! The only thing I don't like is there's an ad after each turn I take when playing against people. Its annoying. Please fix the too many ads problem & ill give it 5 stars. Full Review
Theresa Fulcher Published date: March 15, 2018
Love the game. But the ads are crazy. In the middle of playing a word one pops up. Now since I updated the app a message pops up saying oops there was a problem. Then kicks me out and it freezes up a lot now. Zynga what is going on? Please fix. Full Review
marsha gayle Published date: March 13, 2018
The new features are fun. The Ads are ridiculously long/too many. The challenges have allowed me to gain my confidence in "giving it go" through all available play options rather than picking and choosing who i will/wont play with or games that will/wont play Full Review
Arona Makarika Published date: March 13, 2018
Agree with most others. Too many adds. Add after every move is too many. Also single player mode freezes. I paid coins to unlock it and then it froze. Would be better if add every 5th move at the very least an guarantee play or money back Full Review
Darlene Norwood Published date: March 13, 2018
I am addicted to this game. I would give it a perfect score if it didn't place unplayed games in the "played" category. It also has a player of the day. I wish they would only suggest players that have been playing instead of telling me after I started a game. Full Review
Published date: March 14, 2018
Playing with my friends is fun. The solo challenges are broken I'll get through a couple and then one stops working thinking thinking something went wrong and I can't finish Full Review
Rich Green Published date: March 13, 2018
If you can get past some legit words not being accepted, some absurd words making the grade, some capitalized words - proper names etc. - being accepted and others not, some abbreviations accepted and others not then this game is great. The dictionary and etimologies are for the most part absurd but not at all necessary to the game. Bells and whistles of Words 2 detract from the good ol' basic game in Words 1. But what fun it is to play! Full Review
Todd Hurliman Published date: March 14, 2018
Why do I have finished games in the YOUR MOVE section of the app? About 35 finished games dating 36-77 days ago. Please fix the issues and bugs in your app. Still worth paying $9.99 for NO ADS EVER Full Review
Chris Douglas Published date: March 14, 2018
Overall great! Improvement suggestions: fixing the glitches- shows it's the opponent's turn when it's really mine and the other way around. Update word database with common words used in u.s. language. Update /add definitions in the dictionary. Full Review
S. Rena Fisher Published date: March 14, 2018
The lightning round frequently does not tally the points played to the total correctly. Also, it would be fair if each team was given the exact same letters.... that would be considered a fair game...let the best team win based on skills. Full Review
Bethany Gardner Published date: March 13, 2018
Sometimes there are glitches like when I get notified that I'll have to forfeit a game because I haven't played in a while but it turns out the reason I haven't played is because it was showing that it was other person's turn. But there seem to be glitches in most games and I just love word games so I'll keep playing. Full Review
Fred Wright Published date: March 17, 2018
I like this game. Its easy to pick uo n put down when ever. I enjoy playing people around the world and also playing freinds and acquaintances. The ads can be painful but its free so thats something we have to expect. Full Review
Rainyday Superstar Published date: March 14, 2018
Charges you to swap then says something went wrong refresh and swap again but to swap again you must pay again. Always saying something went wrong try again later... It was better before. The same way too long ad plays after every turn... They really ruined a good game Full Review
mustytomes Published date: March 15, 2018
The ads are less troublesome than the old version. F*ing finally. But I dislike the new graphics, layout, and ui. Its like a step backwards. Also what happened to the integrated dictionary function? Made it a great way to learn new words when someone played an unusual or archaic word. Full Review
Published date: March 12, 2018
I love playing this game but i think you should be able to view someones profile before you decide whether to accept or decline if you do not know them and they request a game with you. Have gotten a few not so nice people by accepting their game request because i could not view their profile first Full Review
Bev Grove Published date: March 15, 2018
I've been playing Words for a number of years and thoroughly enjoy it apart from occasional glitches and the long play ads that you can't cut short. I have had to uninstall and reinstall two or three times when it has repeatedly frozen up and it's heading that way again at present. That is very irritating. I play against folk who are dead easy to beat and that relaxes my mind. Others I really do battle with and I love the challenge. The chat option is great as I play one friend who is in California several thousand miles away! Full Review
Morgan Howle Published date: March 15, 2018
It's alright but I have had friends end up deleting it due to the adds. It's not the pop up and amount of them but the fact some you can't even click off easily and takes ages. Pity but I am also thinking of felting also as I just can't be doing with it. Ruins the game Full Review
Lou Tambone Published date: March 13, 2018
Horribly intrusive video ads after every turn. Makes me not want to open the app. I just close it and reopen it. It's quicker. But these are the worst ads ever. Full Review
Cheryl Eckroade Published date: March 15, 2018
I love this game but, either the screen freezes or it says Words with Friends is not responding. This seems to happen a lot and is very frustrating! I have to exit the app and go back into it. What is the problem people? Full Review
Kevin Cavanaugh Published date: March 16, 2018
Power-ups run the game play. Also, the game can end, even if you can still play words. Those are the dumbest decisions the developers could have made. Way too many ads. Full Review
William Graeme Published date: March 16, 2018
Game continually locks me out of solo challenge halfway thru. Support fixes don't work. Words with no meanings are valid words which makes no sense. If words are valid they should have meanings. No meaning, not a word. Support is no help. Just give the same B.S. answer. Full Review
Molly Yates Published date: March 14, 2018
The game is fun, but lately there have been a lot of glitches. (solo play not working, tonight the team play game is working). I put up with the ridiculous number of ads, but if you've got that many ads, we know you have a little money. You could at least have a working app. Especially for something so highly rated. Full Review
Amy Hagen Published date: March 14, 2018
Needs bug fixes. I've been having issues with my solo matches. I had to redo the last person due to it not registering for over a day that I beat them. Also, I uninstalled twice (then reinstalled) and now it has several games listed for up to 25 days that were already rejected or timed out! Please fix!! This is why I put just 3 stars for the game in general. Full Review
Sue Wittie Published date: March 13, 2018
Before this week I would have given a 5 rating. Now something has gone wrong with my Solo Challenge and there is NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. The game is stuck, keeps telling me to retry later, and I was on the 10th Heroic Women game and winning. Bummed. Full Review
Published date: March 15, 2018
Words 2 lacks in definitions vs the earlier version. Too often, the dictionary just says it's a valid word. Also, I have more "Oops, something went wrong" errors than before. I'm waiting for a solo challenge game to stop processing after two days. I do like the Word Radar, Swap +, and Hindsight features. Full Review
Debby Thrasher Published date: March 13, 2018
The game is fun. Learning new words. WAY TOO MANY ADDS!! Adds after EVERY play! The computer part doesn't give you good tiles when playing with itself but otherwise, really fun. Full Review
