Good game, but.... (by MikeDS1978 on Sat, 07 Mar 2015 19:23:00)
The notifications do not work. This needs to be updated. Also It is slow to load at times
fake or un-allowed words (by Club Belgique on Sat, 07 Mar 2015 11:44:00)
Don't get me wrong, the game itself is probably 4 star game; not a 5 because there are too many inconsistencies and minor issues, such as asking you if you want to play against the computer, when you're in the middle of a game against the computer. That said, the game is a 1 star game at the expert mode, because there's no way you're going to win, no way. As shown below, it throws down too many fake, improper, or made-up words to guarantee a win. "grok" from Heinlein's Sci-fi novel? The proper word "Soyuz" is allowed? "eggnogs" is a word? "Bring those 4 eggnogs over here" I think not. "pitot" is not a word?? No to "Celsius" and "Fahrenheit", but yes to "Watt," "Newton," and "Faraday?" "emeu" another spelling of emu? "valour" for valor? "colour" for color? "mavis", a British literary word for song thrush? MIREX pesticide yes? but no to iPhone?! Zaida - Arabic woman's name, even allows "Zaidas"? vagal - relating to vagus nerve coof - stupid person - Scottish thang GID - a disease of herbivores thebaine, also known as codeine methyl enol ether, is an opiate alkaloid "pule" - A cheese made from the milk of Balkan donkeys from Serbia. "Brrr"?? "ganef" - US slang for thief??? 2015-01-16 "dentalia" is a word, but "caries" is still not? "dout" - obsolete spelling of "doubt"? "JATO" acronym? Really? And you make it a plural? The is no plural of JATO, any more than SCUBA - "hand me those 5 SCUBAS?" I don't think so. "biffy?" Canadian slang for a toilet? Played "gi" again! "Ananke?" Really, the Proper Noun name of a Greek goddess? Why not Brian or Zachary? 2014-12-17 2 stars to 4 YAAAAY! Took forever to win in expert mode with the game playing illegal words and all that. The point is it apparently no longer crashes if you win!!! 2014-12-16 Just suggested I play "AZ" - arrgh 2014-12-16 update released Off to an auspicious start; suggested I play "TE" but that's not found in the list of two-letter words! Okay apparently this is something I'll have to live with. Keeps asking me every time I open it, "do you want to play against the computer" and you have to select "yes"... I AM ALREADY playing a game!!! 2014-12-10 I hate cheaters. Game played "gi" as a word when it is not listed on the "cheat sheet" of 2-letter words... What next? ng? ci? xz? Was - Great implementation, minor flaws 2014-12-02 Oh my god can it get any worse? I was just skillful enough to play two triple words with 8 letters and now it crashed and it won't open without crashing until I create a new game, erasing my score!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Updated 2014-11-07 Dropped a star for several reasons 1) "caries" is a word 2) "Ritz" is not a word. There are also other words I don't recall, but when I looked them up they were all proper nouns or names of indigenous people to a country that supposedly can't be used. 3) keeps asking me every time I open it, "do you want to play against the computer" and you have to select "yes" and the App will note "I see you already started a game, do you want to continue?" - I just want to go back to the game I left off at! In other words if I am already playing single player against the phone, why ask me? 4) if you do beat the phone at some of the more advanced settings, about 30% of the time I've beaten the game, it crashes: doesn't record my winning which is really p*ssing me off!!! --- I think this is a great implementation of Scrabble, and only had a few minor flaws. The load time seems long (1 min +/-, but not the 5-6 some experience) but I guess that's just what has to happen like some other Apps. I do agree it's a shame it no longer works with Scrabble in FaceBook for users in the US, but I think that was out of the control of this App. My biggest quibble is there should be a way to override the "this is not a valid word"; especially if the person you are playing against agrees with your play. I also agree the the "difficult" setting is insane - but fun.
Was a fine game. Now broken. (by Pseudotsuga on Thu, 05 Mar 2015 05:01:00)
Doesn't work at all anymore. Deleted and downloaded again, still doesn't work.
Does the job (by Demarlin on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 23:48:00)
I don't play as much as I used to, so I can't complain about any bugs that may exist. I only play when I'm bored or looking for a distraction.
I want challenging opponents (by 2nd Cityzen on Tue, 03 Mar 2015 20:03:00)
It's become hard to start a game against random opponent with an ELO score even close to mine. Most random players are not ranked. Going first limits your ability to pick someone equal, and when they play a 5 point word you're stuck for a week playing to the end. Put some logic in to drive more equal matches.
Scrabble (by Prizzle99 on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 23:08:00)
This game is fun and engaging I've been using this app for years and I love it
Opponent difficulty (by Bonnie255 on Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:12:00)
Too difficult to get opponents with names. Guests should be put in there own division.
Happy new user (by Emily5656 on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 22:02:00)
I just started playing scrabble with this app and I really like how quick the game moves and I haven't experienced any bugs or crash issues.
Could be Awesome. (by bRAIN Ded on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 00:27:00)
I can't play at all if I'm not connected to the Internet. That is ridiculous. I want to play Pass n' play on a bus trip with others and I can't because the app keeps telling me I'm not connected to the Internet. That's like my credit card being declined when I offered to pay for dinner. Pass n' play with people physically present should always be accessible.
Annoying new feature upgrades degraded it (by danafranklin on Sat, 28 Feb 2015 02:51:00)
Nice look but lots inane features. The worst of these are the reminders as noted below. Seriously this needs a fix. Go back to what you had a few versions ago. Worse one is that it's still missing something it had five updates ago. When playing "Pass 'n Play", it no longer saves the players names for future games. New annoyance. Please knock off the near daily reminders to start a new game, look for new players etc. I don't need a game telling me I haven't played in a while. Get rid if this annoying feature PLEASE!!
Scrabble (by Sheezawolf on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 16:48:00)
Really like game so far after few months. Don't understand updates. Really dislike Dictionary making me re-type
Close to perfect (by koyboy on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 14:49:00)
I really enjoy playing with my family members, but the notification indicators are whacky.
BS update (by Countryfam on Fri, 27 Feb 2015 01:17:00)
After downloading update, any time I try to open a game the app closes and sends me back to main phone screen. Have deleted and tried installing twice with same result.
What? (by Hffhcegfhx on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 23:47:00)
It thinks addiction isn't a word, but hm is -_-
Scrabble (by Midge319 on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 19:34:00)
It's fun to play against the computer. You learn new words, and keep your mind active.
Love it! (by gs9301 on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:59:00)
Great game!!! Love playing it.
Can't get notifications right (by Mike in Lyons, IL on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 19:28:00)
I can't believe that EA or Hasbro are happy with this app. It has always been plagued by bugs that make this a second rate (at best) competitor with Words With Friends. The app sends repeated general notifications trying to get you to play the app but can't seem to send you a notification when someone has played their turn. Buying this app was a complete waste of money. DO NOT BUY.
Good game, but.... (by MikeDS1978 on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 09:50:00)
It will never update your games of the app is closed. The notifications do not work unless app is always open. This needs to be updated. Also It is slow to load at times
Made up or fake words taking over (by Club Belgique on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 02:56:00)
The proper word Soyuz is allowed? Eggnogs is a word? Pitot is not a word?? No to Celsius and Fahrenheit, but yes to Watt, Newton, Faraday? "Emeu" another spelling of emu? Valour for valor? Colour for color? "mavis", a British literary word for song thrush? MIREX pesticide? No iPhone?! Zaida - Arabic woman's name, even allows "Zaidas"? vagal - relating to vagus nerve coof - stupid person - Scottish Thang GID - a disease of herbivores Thebaine, also known as codeine methyl enol ether, is an opiate alkaloid "Pule" - A cheese made from the milk of Balkan donkeys from Serbia. "Brrr"?? "Ganef" - US slang for thief??? 2015-01-16 "dentalia" is a word, but caries is still not? "dout" - obsolete spelling of "doubt"? JATO acronym? Really? And you make it a plural? The is no plural of JATO, any more than SCUBA - "hand me those 5 SCUBAS?" I don't think so. Biffy? Canadian slang for a toilet? Played "gi" again! Ananke? Really, the Proper Noun name of a Greek goddess? Why not Brian or Zachary? 2014-12-17 2 stars to 4 YAAAAY! Took forever to win in expert mode with the game playing illegal words and all that.

Love it! (by PWhitney on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 01:27:00)
Great version of a classic game!
Terrible (by dfeivelson on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 23:22:00)
Doesn't notify me when it's my turn.
Such a Classic (by tronicphace on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 22:15:00)
Always enjoy Scrabble, and this one has the latest dictionary. Also has nice smaller features such as showing you how many tiles the opponent has left when less than a full rack. Music and sound effects are also great.
Fun, but needs easier option settings (by Tx Hooker on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 17:59:00)
I love Scrabble! The only problem I'm having is the ability to turn off the "teacher"
Love it (by Tipperose on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 14:24:00)
I love this game, it's definitely a fun way to pass the time. There are a few things such as words that "are not a valid word in the English dictionary" that annoy me. Since when isn't beautiful a valid word? Anyway, I do recommend this game.
This is a good app, but it could be improved! (by CJRave16.5 on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 02:55:00)
Possible improvements include: 1.) average points per game, 2.) elimination of dictionary restrictions based on political correctness and 3.) a wait option for random opponents for people who prefer to play with a human rather than computers designated as Player 1, Player 2 or Guest 1.....n.
Rip off (by Awesomeness 1,000 on Mon, 23 Feb 2015 01:10:00)
I bought this scrabble game for $7.99 and after I downloaded it I was about to start a game and it crashed and every time I try to start a game it crashes it is such a rip off if u were u I wouldn't get this app at all I wouldn't even think about getting it I would give it a worse star rating if I could I am so ticked off about this app 😡😡😡😡
Boo :( (by Mknkpkak on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 17:14:00)
The latest update crashes all the time.
Bill (by Wildbill 69 on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 16:26:00)
Highly recommend this app
Like the pass & play (by Lisajward on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 16:14:00)
Like the pass & play
Scrabble (by Headbonz on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 15:06:00)
Truly addictive. Wish the teacher option could still be toggled off & on. Most times, I don't want the help but sometimes, I'd like to see what my best option would have been. Thanks for helping me waste scads of time while still engaging my brain!
Great Game (by KHWADI on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 10:46:00)
I play everyday. It's great for me and my friends. The game play is smooth and the rest is history.
Siraachee? SCRABBLE. (by Jet Lassen on Sun, 22 Feb 2015 01:05:00)
Best game ever invented. On my phone? EVEN BETTER. Can't wait to play with my husband. He has an arcane, secretive method of scoring...and he always wins...hmmm. Yet, I won over the computer...hmmm. I love when the teacher is activated. Especially when it say's...Good. But you could have done better. Well, computer, I do feel as though I'm doing really good as it is I'm 102 points ahead of you. Yes, REALLY GOOD. And thanks for the tips. I did not know that qhirezzx was a word. Charles
FIX THE SCORING BUG!!! (by Unfortunate Bystander on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 14:33:00)
Bugs persist, local wifi play still missing, startup seems slower with each update. And the scoring bug, Fix It! Please!
Good, but could be better (by Thanks for update on Sat, 21 Feb 2015 13:27:00)
Bugs I mentioned below are still present, and the score now changes by two for every win or loss. As suggested below, please tell us what is being updated! Having a dictionary to define words would be very useful--I would like to know what new words mean. Please allow this for words placed by myself or my competition. Below is my previous review. I mostly like this game, but it does have some annoying bugs. I only play against the computer or pass around, so the constant reminder of Game Center annoys me, as does the constant reminder that I have not allowed the program to use the cellular data network. Why does it update every time (or nearly every time) I am not actively playing a game? What is being updated? Lastly, if I type a word into the dictionary, it doesn't allow me to edit from the middle of the word. I have to retype the whole word.
Not working well (by SeeUat4am on Fri, 20 Feb 2015 01:07:00)
2/19/15-Photo still not syncing with Facebook on iPhone. This is a repeated problem that goes not resolve with help from EA support. Needs resolution by Hasbro!!!
No complaints (by Scrabble fan 08520 on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 23:54:00)
This version is great. Always like playing
I like the improvements (by Kelechi K on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:22:00)
I appreciate that I don't have to log on every time I have to play like in previous versions. I enjoy this experience.
Fun with no ads (by Dickens Fan on Tue, 17 Feb 2015 15:33:00)
I paid a very small amount to get no ads, very worth it! Love the dictionary and two word list. I also like to play against the computer, and the pass and play function is great fun.
New Scrabble horrible mess! (by Schrecklish on Tue, 17 Feb 2015 12:40:00)
Really messed up the game! Can't even play the computer! The game ends and declares me the winner after 3 or 4 plays! My daughter, my scrabble partner, upgraded and can't even get into Scrabble! Bring back the "old" version and STOP messing around! MORE FRUSTRATED THAN EVER!!! KEEP HAVING TO SIGN IN EVEN IF I LAST PLAYED AN HOUR AGO! TEACHER PICKS STRANGE WORDS! PLEASE BRING BACK OLD GAME...,NOT PERFECT BUT BETTER THAN THIS! DOES ANYONE READ THESE COMMENTS???
Scrabble lover (by SongPlay on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 17:41:00)
Now better because one can FINALLY play against the computer!! Thanks!!
Great Game! (by Silverfoxdlc on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 22:39:00)
I love this app! So far, it has not crashed on me. It was worth paying for the app, as there are no adds and as I said, so far, no crashing.
Still problems but serviceable now (by appalcarp on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 16:23:00)
The dictionary is a waste as words that are NOT in dictionary are allowed. Words IN dictionary like allotment would not let me play it. I want the Standard Official Scrabble dictionary it had before. Game is now serviceable on iPhone6+ but still needs some tweaks. The crashes have ceased.
Scrabble (by Glang333333 on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 01:09:00)
I love the game and not having to pick the tiles makes it even better
No complaints- been playing this app for years (by CCCC?4444 on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 15:10:00)
Just like the classic game except I don't have to wait for anyone else to be in the mood to play. Granted, I only play against computer opponents, but I love this app. It's exactly what I need it to be- it works.
At a basic level good (by Dancougar on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 09:25:00)
It's Scrabble. It's fun. It works. However, notifications have been broken for a very long time. The "new" style board is still terrible compared to classic Scrabble IMHO. I'd give it 4-5 stars if notifications worked.
Inconsistent scoring (by shavip on Fri, 13 Feb 2015 00:34:00)
When a player uses their last tile, the game ends and all other players have the values of their remaining tiles deducted from their scores and added to the score of the player with 0 tiles left. Obviously, this means it is impossible for more than one player to have 0 tiles, because the first to use them all immediately ends the game. So all players except the last should receive a penalty. Normally the app does this correctly. However, I have noticed that the scoring system occasionally adds points to the score of a player with tile(s) leftover rather than the player who ended the game. The last player receives a bonus of +0, which is wrong, and instead a different player who should have had points subtracted for their remaining tiles gets the other players' penalty points as a bonus. I have a screenshot of this occurring but can't attach it to this review. I hope this bug can be fixed quickly.
Scrabble (by Gatdenia1 on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 18:47:00)
Love the game! Been playing for years. Wish it didn't crash at times.
Enjoyable (by HeliBum on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 08:08:00)
Once in a while, starting a two player game is cumbersome. Other than that, it is quite enjoyable.
Alice (by Sadscrabbler on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 00:21:00)
Love scrabble, especially teacher feature, but hate how poorly the Hasbro folks handle any upgrades or changes. Don't they know how important ratings, player lists, etc. are?
Trouble since last update (by Fun game playing on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 02:48:00)
I loved playing this game until the latest update. I can't open it any more!!! I get as far as deciding to play against the computer and my screen blacks out and the whole game flips off. It was so nice before the update - now I can no longer play!!!
SCRABBLE Review from 51th to 100th
Fun and easy to use on multiple devices (by JosieDee on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 16:35:00)
Games don't carry from iPad to iPhone but that's fine too. I can see my friends who are available to play.
Favorite Game (by Robeener on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:13:00)
I still do not EVER receive a notification when it's my turn in a game. I've tried everything and can't get it to notify me! 😔
Love (by Meforyoudddfff on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 12:32:00)
Always loved this game!
Not very realistic always going first. (by InvestmentAdvisor on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 04:24:00)
When playing a single player game (against the device), this app gives the player no option but to always go first. The work-around is to pass your first turn in every other game. Also the stats update is very flawed as on my ios 8 iphone, I an awarded with 2 wins each and every time I win. Also, the app never plays defensively, leaving bonus square opportunities left and right. Not for serious Scrabble players....
Fun game, slow-loading (by woohoo3 on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 02:30:00)
Really like playing the game, but it's one of the slowest-loading apps I've ever tried. Also some really unusual words played by the computer, but still a lot of fun.
Scrabble update (by RichK23 on Mon, 09 Feb 2015 20:34:00)
Not a good update. To long to load. Way to many prompts before getting to the game.
Update killed it (by Hollywoodny on Mon, 09 Feb 2015 11:22:00)
App crashes now EVERY time I try to load a game!
Can't see stats of opponents (by Jeremycec on Mon, 09 Feb 2015 10:16:00)
If the opponent isn't logged in on Facebook or Origin, they're anonymous and you have no idea of the rank of whom you are playing -- or what a win/loss does to your ranking.
Scrabble (by jnradel on Mon, 09 Feb 2015 04:28:00)
This is absurd! It is constantly crashing. If I didn't love the game, I wouldn't waste my time. What's going on??
Love the Gsme but (by Beautiful writing on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 23:47:00)
Way too many problems with the apps. On my home desktop computer the vertical right sided ads on Facebook have taken over. I can't use the chat feature, dictionary and even the Scrabble store that I used to buy from. You'd think they would want to fix that. Regarding the iPad app, for the last 4 days it continues to keep crashing. The only place that still works is my iPhone and I don't like playing on such a small screen. So disappointing.
Love this game. The new single player against the computer was a great idea; helps me practice. (by Heidiegirl on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 22:52:00)
I've had this game for a while, I still use it.
Love the newest version, except... (by Eforse1 on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 18:04:00)
Love this newer version of Scrabble app! So much better than it was. Always addicting and fun, but now even better movement and options. My only problem is that i never see the little number on the app icon on home screen anymore—the one that reminds you that you have turns ready to play. I would play more, but without the reminder i forget to check and don't realize it's my turn for days sometimes.
NEEDS FIXING (by Princessk5856 on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 17:38:00)
This app needs fixing. It's horrible since the update. It shuts down before you can even make a move. Awful!!!
Scrabbles Changed (by DaTaisBased on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 11:48:00)
I tent to find the use of proper terms of food and drink a bit hard at times and there seems to be many two letter words I have never heard of but i play this more than any other game and am pleased enough with it!
Much better (by 5gracie7 on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 02:19:00)
Now that the repetitive ads are gone, this game is fun again!
Great Fun (by Lovesachoice on Sun, 08 Feb 2015 00:14:00)
I truly enjoy playing with different people. It makes me a better player. Just wish there was a way to say "great play" to a guest player. I like to acknowledge plays that are especially good.
Eh (by LoveWatermelons on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 23:11:00)
Ever since the new update I haven't been able to open the app because it always crashes. Please fix
So inconsistent and annoying (by sose5000 on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 16:40:00)
Notifications are notoriously bad. Now they have a new feature that pops up ads almost every time you load the app. I paid for this app. Save the ads for the free version.
Needs Work (by TimStevens on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 12:45:00)
More times than not, the game scores the bonus incorrectly at the end, giving the bonus points to a random player who still has tiles remaining and subtracting points from whoever went out. It also seems like it would be pretty easy to be able to program a way to not have to go first every single time you play against the AI.
Fix please (by TheKatanaMistress on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 11:52:00)
So I have an iPod touch 4g. It won't even let me into the game. It just shuts down. I love playing this game and its getting ridiculous please fix this.
Good tutorial (by Michael Garrity on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 10:06:00)
I like to play this game to see where and what are better moved. It makes me a better scrabble player all around.
Scrabble review (by Redchasincans on Sat, 07 Feb 2015 01:32:00)
The older version is better- newer one isn't using the Q and it is impossible to log in to FB to play with anyone- I was able to on older version but not this one the reason I used this nickname is it is mine with you- but ill change
Scrabble (by Mysticcat on Fri, 06 Feb 2015 15:50:00)
This is a fun game!! Options are nice!! Recommend this to any word freak!! Debbie M.
Awesome (by Doc Tymes on Fri, 06 Feb 2015 13:38:00)
Used to play scrabble on family game nights. Now, we can still play together even though we live so far apart. Awesome app.
Great Scrabble App! (by Avenautic on Fri, 06 Feb 2015 11:37:00)
Reliable, challenging and plays just like the real thing with optional enhanced modes. I always play against computers and have never had problems.
Great app (by JLT1234 on Fri, 06 Feb 2015 01:05:00)
Great app and no ads!!!!!
Doesnt work! (by Jennie3310 on Fri, 06 Feb 2015 00:59:00)
Constant issues/bugs. I give up, tired of wrestling with it. Need to hire some new developers and or testers.
Without a consistent dictionary, why bother? (by pandapuffs on Thu, 05 Feb 2015 00:46:00)
I've only just started playing Scrabble against the computer, on the Advanced setting. It generally goes okay, but seems to play many, many unfamiliar words. I don't know everything so I let it go (I chose advanced, after all). But the game just rejected "carnivore". Clearly, a valid word. So I thought I'd check the reviews to see if this was a weird fluke. With all the comments about the computer playing invalid words, I really wonder about all those bizarre words played against me. Scrabble is obviously all about the words (often lesser known ones), so without a valid, consistent dictionary, what's the point?
Fun game (by KGFunkEra on Wed, 04 Feb 2015 22:43:00)
It's fun and the game interface is good. But, I don't understand why the Two Letter Words and Moves List are stored/accessed via the Dictionary button. That's always seemed odd to me.
Love Scrabble! (by Kimberly Madsen on Wed, 04 Feb 2015 01:37:00)
I love being able to play with family and friends over the Internet. I have had gameplay issues come and go but they are usually fixed in updates. The most annoying problem is not being able to sync with Facebook at times, but restarting my phone or updating fixes the problem. Gameplay and features are great!
Does not work after most recent upgrade (by ssipad on Wed, 04 Feb 2015 00:51:00)
The iPod version does not work in iOS 6.16 after the last upgrade. Would like to see this corrected, SOON!!!
Spell obsession (by MrTimB on Tue, 03 Feb 2015 04:36:00)
Love it way more than Words w/Friends. This is America's board game, bit you can use that UK dictionary.
L-o-v-e (by Kirs68 on Mon, 02 Feb 2015 12:52:00)
I've been playing Scrabble since I began spelling and in this time of electronics I love the availability and mirrored similarity of this app compared to the original board game. Thank you!
Love it (by Voeuetoile on Sun, 01 Feb 2015 20:41:00)
I love the updates and the teacher.
Made up or fake words taking over (by Club Belgique on Sun, 01 Feb 2015 11:11:00)
No to Celsius and Fahrenheit, but yes to Watt, Newton, Faraday? "Emeu" another spelling of emu? Valour for valor? Colour for color? "mavis", a British literary word for song thrush? MIREX pesticide? No iPhone?! Zaida - Arabic woman's name, even allows "Zaidas"? vagal - relating to vagus nerve coof - stupid person - Scottish Thang GID - a disease of herbivores Thebaine, also known as codeine methyl enol ether, is an opiate alkaloid "Pule" - A cheese made from the milk of Balkan donkeys from Serbia. "Brrr"?? "Ganef" - US slang for thief??? 2015-01-16 "dentalia" is a word, but caries is still not? "dout" - obsolete spelling of "doubt"? JATO acronym? Really? And you make it a plural? The is no plural of JATO, any more than SCUBA - "hand me those 5 SCUBAS?" I don't think so. Biffy? Canadian slang for a toilet? Played "gi" again! Ananke? Really, the Proper Noun name of a Greek goddess? Why not Brian or Zachary? 2014-12-17 2 stars to 4 YAAAAY! Took forever to win in expert mode with the game playing illegal words and all that. The point is it apparently no longer crashes if you win!!! 2014-12-16 Just suggested I play "AZ" - arrgh 2014-12-16 update released Off to an auspicious start; suggested I play "TE" but that's not found in the list of two-letter words! Okay apparently this is something I'll have to live with. Keeps asking me every time I open it, "do you want to play against the computer" and you have to select "yes"... I AM ALREADY playing a game!!! 2014-12-10 I hate cheaters. Game played "gi" as a word when it is not listed on the "cheat sheet" of 2-letter words... What next? ng? ci? xz? Was - Great implementation, minor flaws 2014-12-02 Oh my god can it get any worse? I was just skillful enough to play two triple words with 8 letters and now it crashed and it won't open without crashing until I create a new game, erasing my score!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Updated 2014-11-07 Dropped a star for several reasons 1) "caries" is a word 2) "Ritz" is not a word. There are also other words I don't recall, but when I looked them up they were all proper nouns or names of indigenous people to a country that supposedly can't be used. 3) keeps asking me every time I open it, "do you want to play against the computer" and you have to select "yes" and the App will note "I see you already started a game, do you want to continue?" - I just want to go back to the game I left off at! In other words if I am already playing single player against the phone, why ask me? 4) if you do beat the phone at some of the more advanced settings, about 30% of the time I've beaten the game, it crashes: doesn't record my winning which is really p*ssing me off!!! --- I think this is a great implementation of Scrabble, and only had a few minor flaws. The load time seems long (1 min +/-, but not the 5-6 some experience) but I guess that's just what has to happen like some other Apps. I do agree it's a shame it no longer works with Scrabble in FaceBook for users in the US, but I think that was out of the control of this App. My biggest quibble is there should be a way to override the "this is not a valid word"; especially if the person you are playing against agrees with your play. I also agree the the "difficult" setting is insane - but fun.
No problems (by LovetheMoviews on Sun, 01 Feb 2015 02:33:00)
Love the app. Have had no problems. Use it every day.
Made up words (by Tisboutsea on Sun, 01 Feb 2015 01:56:00)
I do love playing this, but how does the computer get away with making up words? If anyone out there knows the meaning of 'boep' or 'enev', please share! I'd love it if there was a way to challenge a word.
Love it! (by Artichoke 25 on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 19:45:00)
I love Scrabble. It's fun to play online with friends, and get extra games if you want by choosing random opponent so you can get as many games as you want. Nice to have the option of playing against the computer at a level you like whenever you're out of wireless range. Like the option of chatting or not as you choose.
Fun Game (by Tha' Truth on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 12:38:00)
My children learn a lot of new vocabulary words playing this game .. Hours of fun!
Kicked out!!! (by littlebearbig on Sat, 31 Jan 2015 09:54:00)
Scrabble - kicks me out in the middle of a game.... REALLY? Very Frustrating!!!
Fun Escape (by SAB baby on Thu, 29 Jan 2015 09:47:00)
I enjoy taking a mini break and playing scrabble. Great fun!!! Excellent game. Keeps the brain active for older participants and just FUN!!!
Crash, Bang, Boom (by archopod on Thu, 29 Jan 2015 08:04:00)
Since my original purchase of this app I have played nearly 3,000 games. With the current update it returns to my home screen as soon as I hit play. What is the value of a free update that takes away what you already had and replaces it with a massive and worthless void? Jerry
Better (by Pengy J on Thu, 29 Jan 2015 03:12:00)
Newest version is improved over previous. Auto word recall being fixed is an improvement. I get logged out automatically from Origin a lot. This is very annoying. Update Jan. 2015 Latest version is great. No more auto logging out. Play is fast and clean. Today, I just happened to be able to play a Bingo. The word was ODORIZER. I was able to play it and score a lot of points, but interestingly, the scrabble dictionary in the app says it is not a word. I can type in ODORIZE in the dictionary and it will say that is a valid English word, but ODORIZER is not. It is a curious discrepancy.
Love it (by Mrshula on Thu, 29 Jan 2015 03:08:00)
My kids make fun of me because I'm always playing scrabble but I love it. I'm too impatient to play against friends so I love that I can play against the computer. Great game!
Great! (by CoreyMineard on Thu, 29 Jan 2015 00:52:00)
Best version yet. Now don't screw it up!
Notification is broken (by Qiwing on Wed, 28 Jan 2015 14:44:00)
I installed the Scrabble 3.7.2 on January 16, 2015, by downloading it from App Store, on a brand new iPhone 6 running IOS 8.1.2. Whenever I play with a friend, notification never goes off whatsoever to let me know that it's my turn to play. My friend has the same version of Scrabble, running on a new iPhone 6 as well but the notification worked just fine every time. When I tried to log in to my friend's Scrabble using my FB id, then the notification on my friend's iPhone's is now broken too, even when my friend logs back in to the Scrabble using his FB id. We tried to re-install the previous versions of Scrabble, version 3.7.1 from the Time Machine backup, without luck. The notification is still broken. No alert, nor sound are produced after each word played. We enjoy so much playing Scrabble for so many years before running into this issue which cause quite a frustration and hair-pulling moment. We would appreciate if you can help us fix the issue, if it is an issue or bug in the current version of Scrabble app (3.7.2). Thanks !
Teacher is free on iOS (by Frustrated by Distractions on Wed, 28 Jan 2015 03:04:00)
Look at the Scrabble board on a big screen, (whichever kind you have) but make your plays on an iOS device. Looks better on the iPad, of course, and automatically zooming in when placing tiles on the iPhone is a pain...but seeing the teacher face pout without being able to discover the play you missed, that stings!
Cannot connect to Facebook!! (by bosslady750 on Mon, 26 Jan 2015 14:08:00)
It has been a month since I have been able to connect to facebook and play with friends! The last update promised to resolve this but did NOT! I paid for this app because I love the game!! I have the latest software on my 4gs! Is this a way to force me into a new phone!?! I'd hate to think it! Please, please fix my game.😡😥
Has been crashing since the last update (by Apps Addiction on Sun, 25 Jan 2015 20:47:00)
I loved playing Scrabble on my iPhone 4 running on OS 7, but I'm quite dismayed that the game keeps crashing no matter what stage you are in the game. It is very unstable. If I could, I would upgrade to a newer iPhone but not right now. Please fix. Thanks!
Two letter words (by Qwertyuiolkjhggds on Sun, 25 Jan 2015 19:44:00)
Why isn't the new two-word dictionary on the game? I like game but sometimes the letters are terribly one-sided - one or the other getting all the good letters or all vowels, etc. also I get frustrated when it won't connect. Thankfully you have finally gotten away from me having to sign in over and over again!
SCRABBLE Review from 101th to 150th
Scrabble (by Demtist on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 21:04:00)
Truly enjoy playing this.
Good Lord (by Scrabaholic on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 16:51:00)
When, when will I learn never to update an app that is working? Scrabble now crashes consistently.
Bleh (by SteelMinistry on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 04:34:00)
It's a word game, it's ok. I turned on notifications so that I wouldn't make my opponent wait but the app only notifies me that there are thousands of other games available to play. Seriously, what crap.
I've played Scrabble for years. (by Eireann (Erin) on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 02:25:00)
I play the board game and on my iPod touch 5G and my iPhone, and I love them so much. Having different board and tile styles would be great though. That and being able to sign in with Twitter or Google (I don't use Facebook).
Minimal difference (by tbarn on Fri, 23 Jan 2015 22:15:00)
Really lame that when you hit exchange letters the first time it has to update itself and load the letters. That should be done instantly behind the scenes.
Love this game! (by Cryptofreq on Fri, 23 Jan 2015 20:04:00)
I play scrabble more using this app than I do at the table. The professor is a great teaching tool!
Crashes (by JLaga on Fri, 23 Jan 2015 14:28:00)
Since update I can't even get logged on. Crashes constantly despite deleting and reloading. Also, doesn't save started games. Fix it!!!!
Good wordplay (by gordonj1s on Thu, 22 Jan 2015 21:52:00)
Well thought out. Good game. I mostly play the computer and find the levels challenging. Some of the words the computer comes up with are real humdingers.
Triple Like. (by Ms. Lauren on Thu, 22 Jan 2015 03:37:00)
The app is great. Easy to use, highly addictive. Occasional issues- sometimes it just shuts down. Works well most of the time. Always have about 5 games going!
Better, still takes too long to load... (by Yahweh's adopted son on Thu, 22 Jan 2015 00:54:00)
Fix it and my review will go up!
Scrabble review (by ricardo max on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 15:43:00)
Great game Educational and entertaining. Highly recommended for kids and adults.
Scrabble! Love it! (by Treeznflowers on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 07:31:00)
Scrabble on-the-go, with no tiles to drop or pick up. What's not to like?! Haven't experienced the problems other reviewers complain of, but I only play solo against the computer or pass-and-play with my husband. No fuss.
Love scrabble but (by LM5000 on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 02:35:00)
It's fine, really. I wish it didn't reload every time I switch apps.
Finally it works (by bozobozo1 on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 02:33:00)
Now works on iPhone6 - thanks
Horrible upgrade (by roharte531 on Wed, 21 Jan 2015 01:25:00)
When I start the game it crashes right away and I can't play the game I paid for. FIX IT!!!
Scrab (by Tabbycleo on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 20:04:00)
Wish I didn't have to pay so much money for it. Do like it.
Cmon man (by gr8bluesgtr on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 04:32:00)
Computer stays mostly within normal vocabulary, but pulls out words like 'ejido' about once a game. If I wanted to play against 'ejido', I'd play advanced. C'mon nan.
Ads! Can't stop (by Osnab on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 19:54:00)
I don't have the option to purchase an upgrade and the ads are insane!! When I go to "store" I see only 2 kinds of scrabble games, both of which are active but no way to select an option to buy coins or just pay to stop the ads. EA help was not helpful. Anyone have ideas? Thanks.
Great game,crappy app (by Mommybaker on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 16:37:00)
I am a huge scrabble fan and avoided words with friends (WWF) for as long as I could. Why people switch is because the scrabble app works so poorly. It takes forever load, it's very inconsistent logging into facebook account, and it updates my notifications slowly and inconsistently. The only reason I still Have this app is because of my dedication to scrabble, and it has way better features than WWF. But the features are useless if can't sign in.
Warning! (by Butterflies2011 on Mon, 19 Jan 2015 00:11:00)
Do not download the app unless you have IOS 7. You will not be able to open the app without it crashing. The apple store should have let me upgrade the scrabble app if IOS 7 was required to play it. I used to play scrabble all the time.
Can't play friends (by goofyme on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 14:10:00)
Fix it! Doesn't connect with Facebook- what's the deal?
Scrabble glitch (by Skccj on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 14:08:00)
I would not recommend this app, although I've been using it (the purchased version) for 3 years. I cannot connect to any of the games with Facebook friends. Updated both Scrabble and Facebook, nope-same error message. Can't connect to Facebook. I've never used an app with so many quirks and issues. Avoid frustration, don't use it.
This app doesn't work (by Dans handmade on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:51:00)
And every review I wrote disappears. Back to words with friends
Love game, not happy with current update (by FancyPants420 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:33:00)
I like single player, after every game since update it exits the game, so annoying
Fun game when it connects to FB (by Fitzflyer on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:25:00)
I'm not a Scrabble expert. I enjoy playing this game against my FB friends for fun. Unfortunately the game won't connect to FB anymore so now I don't really have a reason to keep it.
Notifications broken! (by AppsBuyer on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:19:00)
Fix the turn notifications! It was working before, something has gone wrong!!!
Terrible! Each update makes it worse! (by pt fort gratiot on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:15:00)
Please make it so I don't have to log in all the time. Sometimes it keeps me logged in, other times I have to login again. It does not seem to remember my username. This drives me crazy. Addendum: Scrabble no longer lets me get to my existing game. My opponent can't logon. Do not buy this!
Broken (by Appreciative letter-writer on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:08:00)
1) The connection through Facebook has been broken for days 2) I wish I could connect to friends without using FB 3) I wish the game kept stats between me and each of my competitors
Annoying and frustrating (by cougar2010 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:05:00)
Every time I write a review for this app it fails to post. So here we go again.....Crashes every time I choose "rematch" or if I try to complete a game from earlier in the day. In this case all the points are lost and I have to start a new game. Frustrating 😡! Come on Scrabble, you used to be so much better than this.
Please fix (by vitemma on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 12:22:00)
Use to love this game,however have not been able to play for weeks now due to "network error" please fix and restore my game.
Can't play (by Khaos725 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 11:43:00)
Every time I try to open the app I am not able to connect to Facebook and I can't play! A notice comes up saying something bout not being able to connect and a problem with reduced functionality!! WELL DUH!!!
Latest Version Buggy (by FurBear on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 11:40:00)
Since the last update, have not been able to play. I get a message that it can't connect to to Facebook due to network errors. What's up with the ads on a paid version? Do not download; it is a piece of crap.
Doesn't work (by Gibby 000 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 11:32:00)
Your app stinks hasn't worked on weeks. Free or paid version. Fix it!!!
Just threw $8.00 down the commode (by Grits55 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 10:46:00)
This app does NOT work with FB! Buyer beware EA has serious issues with this app.
Can't connect to Facebook (by Wilcomer on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 08:03:00)
I have been playing this game for 2 years now and after my last update, I can't connect with Facebook . It keeps giving me an error message . I paid for this app. Please fix.
something wrong with this version (by Gatorba on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 06:56:00)
Takes forever to open and has ads even though it is the paid version. Please fix both problems asap!
Better than Words With Friends worth the money. But, (by KitanaiBaish on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 06:52:00)
I love this app, I like the layout l, and other than occasional bugs I never had a problem with it. That is until I was plagued by network errors that won't load any of my games. I've tried on all of my apple devices but still the network error plagues me. Once that is cleared up I will go back to loving my scrabble app.
Buggiest app ever??? (by Auntie Tash on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 06:40:00)
I love Scrabble, but this app has always been terrible. It often has "network errors" and can't connect through Facebook. I'm on day 3 of connection problems and so are my friends. Get your act together app designer!
No longer works (by SterlingP on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 05:58:00)
It would be great to be able to play the games I've started - but I can't due to the Facebook integration issue. Haven't been able to play for nearly a week. Clearly there is nothing wrong with the Facebook API since lots of other games (like Words With Friends) use it and still work fine. Starting to wonder why I even bother with Scrabble and don't just go back to WWF. Maybe I will.
Awful (by Startupper on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 05:42:00)
I didnt think this app could get worse. Congratulations for lowering your own bar, EA. If this app were any slower, it would be like playing via USMail. Also, I paid for ad-free. The game is riddled with ads for your other low quality products. Shame on you.
Facebook fail (by Creamy beige on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 04:57:00)
Hasn't been working for a week. Won't connect to my facebook friends I've been playing with.
NoFatKat (by NoFatKat on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 04:41:00)
I love scrabble and I enjoy playing against the computer very much. I would gladly give this game 5 stars if a couple of things were changed: 1) I wish the board wouldn't enlarge when you play a tile, or at least give me the option to turn that feature off. I like to see the whole board so that I may see other word options available to me. 2) Also I would like to see what action was taken by the computer when it didn't make a word; i.e. did it pass or exchange letters? It just sits there and I have to decide that it can't make a word. Thanks for a game that I have spent a long time playing!
Connection problem (by Retired1952 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 03:39:00)
Latest update to iPhone game.. Scrabble will not load. Have rebooted phone etc. please fix before I forfeit games.
Liked until the most recent update (by 4 boys' mom on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 03:16:00)
This is one of few apps I am willing to pay for. The teacher feature is very helpful. I like you get options to play against the computer or invite your friends - on their own devices or pass my device. My biggest complaint against this app since the most recent update is, it crashes every time I do a bingo or finish a game. At least I don't lose any turn. I also wish there were less prompts to use social media to brag about my score or bingo.
Frustrating (by HSkoler on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 02:43:00)
Scrabble never works right. Right now there's "network" problems so none of my games (50) can be accessed. I'm never allowed to nudge but everyone else can nudge me. It's the worst functioning app!!
Network error. Network error. Network error (by mindcue on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 02:27:00)
All of a sudden and from different network connections and locations, all that we get on two different phones is a "network error" message. Worked for a little while after latest update, but stopped with no rhyme or reason. Otherwise when working I'd rate it a 4 overall.
Great Game but plenty to be annoyed about (by Matthew Ostroff on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 01:46:00)
Crashing ever since iOS 8. And I bought a new phone too. Same deal. And how do I turn off that annoying professor?
Network connection errors make it useless (by JulieS on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 01:42:00)
I've logged out of FB, logged back in, still having network connection error that means I have zero friends and zero games anymore. Pointless!
Buggy and flawed (by Al666666 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 01:02:00)
Two big problems with this game. It has suddenly stopped working with the Facebook network so you can no longer play with friends. It has been like this for a week and not just me, but everyone I know that plays this. Also, I payed for this version to avoid ads and now they keep pushing them on me. A bait and switch. Might as well get the free version.
WTH ?! (by Washdarb on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 01:00:00)
What is wrong with this piece of crap ?!
SCRABBLE Review from 151th to 200th
Favorite game. Worst app. (by Lynnebush on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:47:00)
So many bugs. No way to connect with facebook suddenly. Lost all my games and standing.
Loses data, can't connect to fb (by Jaszamor on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:26:00)
This app lost all my games with origin. Called origin & they did nothing. U lose ur stats. I love scrabble but not this version.
Update won't open games (by MidnightHandyman on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:23:00)
I love this game and I play scrabble with my aunt quite a bit since we are on opposite coasts. Neither one of us can play our games anymore. This update keeps saying a facebook connection error has occurred and it won't connect. Facebook works fine on my iPhone. Same with hers. Scrabble doesn't. Same thing for my aunt. Please fix it quick!
Don't update!! (by justinpe on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:20:00)
Cannot play my Facebook games in the app on iPhone 6 with iOS. Please fix! Other than not being able to play, the app is great. The redesigned icon is much better.
This review process is a nightmare (by Jabberwk on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:19:00)
This is now the FOURTH time I'm trying to submit this review. Previous attempts told me that my "title" was already being used and instead of just allowing me to change my title, it knocked me out completely and I keep having to start from scratch. This is not nearly as frustrating as the app is at the moment. Previously the app kept crashing and knocking me out of games. The amount of time I spent trying to make even one move in one game was ridiculous. Now I can't even get into the app at all. For the past week I've been getting a message that there's a network error. All my other apps work fine. Only Scrabble seems to have a network error. If this isn't fixed soon, I'm going to delete the app. Not worth the frustration. I used to love this game. Now it's become a thorn in my side.
Network Error (by Grulox on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:01:00)
Can't connect with friends via Facebook, please fix.
Not Worth It (by Hum girl on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 23:25:00)
My free scrabble game just up and quit, so I switched to the paid Scrabble game, and voila! Same problem. Can't interface with FB, can't find old games in current play, can't find Friends. What a waste of $$.
Won't connect to FB (by Moonietunes on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 23:02:00)
Since updating this morning, the app won't connect to Facebook. I just get a network error. Every time EA does a major update to this app, it is full of bugs. Get your act together, people. If you want to compete with WWF you are doing a piss poor job.
Profile image not working (by VicC. on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 22:51:00)
Well once again we have a problem. What a surprise! It seems that of all my apps that this one seems to have consistent problems. Ok, EA/Origin. What happened to the profile images? I can't open it in profile settings to pick an image. Had one up to a few days ago and then it disappeared and now I get nothing but the default. All other settings will open but not that one! I knew the app was working too well! Also, it doesn't immediately update when I open the app. I have to do that manually at times. Common, get it right!
I can't play! Network error (by Rocks1313 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 22:18:00)
Used to love playing this game. The suggested players should not be at the top, I always accidently start games I do not want to play, there is not enough room to place finger to refresh the game. It is very slow to load and crashes after every turn I take. It also used to freeze my iPod while loading, onetime licking up for almost 2 hours
Upgraded appl (by swimmer dude from Chicago on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 21:33:00)
For whatever reason, this appl decides when to show my profile pic and when not to. Really weird that it will not let me keep my profile pic posted. I upgraded to the no commercials appl; but, when signing on each time I am always asked to go to a website or allow a location service to someone. I paid $8.00 for that!!!!!!! A bit of a ripoff. Update, Oct 17, 2014 It totally stopped working. Every time I went to use it while on vacation in FLorida, it repeatedly said "problem logging into Facebook".... I was not able to get back in to complete several games I was involved in. This went on for days. I finally tried to delete the app and reregister to play again. I was unable to do that nd none of my facebook games were saved and my upgraded membership was gone. They practically took my membership fee and then without notice, they stopped me from enjoying this app. I plan to contact itunes or Apple to troubleshoot or to just file a complaint. This is a horrible app, plain and simple.
Can't connect through FB (by PVCMC on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 21:27:00)
I am in the midst of several games and for last few days can't connect. I contacted my friends and they can't either. FIX IT!!!! This is absurd! I see someone else complained of same problem. Come on!!😢
What's going on?!?! (by Snooz640 on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 21:26:00)
For the past week, I cannot use Scrabble with my FB friends. I have deleted and reinstalled the game, but still only get a error message. EA support is a joke.
Network errors! (by Lady Maire on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 20:40:00)
When it works, it's great- but nothing but inability to connect to network for past few days. Every time there's an update, this seems to happen. Come on! Fix it! Plus the newer version has ads on it. I paid so I wouldn't have ads. It's annoying and makes me angry.
Network errors abound (by Stcarp on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 20:22:00)
Haven't been able to play for about a week. "Network error" is the message, but there's obviously something bigger wrong with this app. Love it when it's working, but it's useless right now. C'mon EA - give us a fix!
FAIL!!!!! (by Cobalt Matt on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 19:54:00)
Network error now appears across all platforms, not just iPhone. FAIL FIX THIS NOW FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT
Stopped working (by Amy Hicok on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 19:31:00)
After the most recent update, it has stopped working saying that there is a network issue. I've used this app for a long time and have never had problems. I'm disappointed
Horrible - has not worked in days. Server down (by insideportland on Fri, 17 Oct 2014 19:23:00)
Buggy, slow, crashes often.

iOS 8.0.2 Problem!! (by Lavender55 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 17:06:00)
I have not had any problem with the new updated Scrabble game and have been playing my friends from FB without issues. I downloaded iOS 8.0.2 and now cannot get into the game. A banner shows that states that I have a Network Error and that there seems to be a problem connecting to Facebook. NOTHING I have done, including working with Apple customer support, will fix this!!!
Needs to be fixed! (by Tina of Royalton on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:56:00)
I haven't been able to play, I get an error message. Not good at all. Would give negative stars if I could!!!
NETWORK ERROR (by mikesalz on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:50:00)
It's bad enough that you bombard the paid version with ads. But now the game doesn't work at all! I get "Network Error" every time I open the app. For days now!
NETWORK ERRORS (by Mishalish on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:41:00)
Scrabble, I have been unable to play my games for several days. I keep getting an error message that there is trouble connecting to Facebook and as a result there will be reduced functionality. I am connected to Facebook.
Ads on a paid version? Can't connect to FaceBook? Come on! :( (by Sociallyskilled on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:38:00)
My scrabble can't connect to Facebook anymore. There was always the buggy "network error" warning, but now I can't even get to my games at all. It's been like this for 3 days now and i can't do anything except play against the computer. The new update has ads. I paid for this version, and I paid for it because it's great and I don't want ads. I paid=no ads. Take them away! My last review: I started playing in 2009, and used to only win 10-20% of games. I have improved and now win about 80% of games, but my statistics don't show change over time. My % won since inception is low, at 41%, and that is my win rate over the last 4 years, but I'd love to see it broken down into more detailed categories. It would be awesome to have a Year-To-Date value, percentages by year (in 2009, you won 16%, 2010 was 23%, 2011 was 37%, etc) and maybe even a little graph so we can see how our game improved over time. Ok, ya got me. I work in finance and want a statement showing my rate of return, I mean rate of improvement. It would be awesome.
Can't connect to FB anymore (by ScrabbleChampBingo on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:48:00)
What's up? This app works for about a week then it craps out again. For the last week neither me nor anyone I play with has been able to play. It's a constant "Network Issue". That plus the constant ads since ios8 (even though the paid version was supposed to be ad free) is like a kick in the nuts. Well played EA, not!
Lousy (by Rittty on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:37:00)
Nothing but problems since latest update. iPhone/iPad boards don't have capability to force forfeit, no resign capability, no move reviews and just plain lousy slow loading of game. Oct 24, 2014. Both iPhone and iPad games have Network Error. Reduced Functionality. Cannot play on either device.
Don't buy until fixed (by BestWoodsman on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:36:00)
The game worked as expected (until the last update) but EA cares so little about customers that you will regret giving them money or advertising revenue. Seriously, go to their "customer support" website see if you can even find this game. Since a review is my only avenue for contact unless I set up and account with them.....here's your just rating EA.
Network error (by Whitakerbainbridge on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:28:00)
Hasn't worked for several days. Please address.
Poor... (by Bunster17 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:19:00)
It has been almost two days with a network error in trying to login under Facebook.. Enough already, please get this fixed - I miss my friends
WHOA! What happened? (by A homeschool mom on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:09:00)
Not connecting through Facebook and my games are gone. Same with my opponents...so it's not me (I happen to only play people I know IRL). Please fix this. Also, I paid for the ad free version and I was getting add everything I opened the app to take a turn. Not. Cool.
Update on October 15 2014 broke the Facebook connection. (by WorldsGreatestEngineer on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:50:00)
Update on October 15 2014 broke the Facebook connection. It amazes me that EA consistently does not test their updates. I wonder if they even care.
App broken do not buy (by Shpeeds on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:20:00)
This has not worked on the iphones of everyone I know for three days. Horrible support. Total rip off. Get the free app and don't waste your money.
network connectivity issues (by Elizabeth Cobb on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:40:00)
love the game but have had a lot of issues with the latest update. Also wanted to second previous reviewers comments about the paid version. I PAID so I should not have ads
I keep losing all my games (by Washjones on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:33:00)
I wished I hadn't have paid for this app, I lose games on a regular basis and there's always some connectivity issue with Facebook. I'm also still seeing ads on the paid app. What's with that?
Not working at all right now! (by Dr Veggie on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:25:00)
I have played this app for a few years. I have a few regular opponents who I play via Facebook. At the moment we are all getting an error message and cannot play! This has been going on for over 24 hours.
Scrabble is no fun anymore!! (by Carolyndz on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:50:00)
No fun to play because notifications don't work. Get error messages saying can't connect to Facebook or Origin.
Server side issues are crashing app (by CKJaeschke on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:49:00)
Yo, EA! Go google yourself and this game right now. "network errors" are preventing people to play...these are server issues on your side or something is not working with Game Center so no one can play with anyone right now. Please fix this.
Network Connectivity (by CatMadness79 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:46:00)
Ok what's going here? I luv this game but for the past few days now I'm experiencing trouble connecting to Facebook or network?! What?! Something is definitely wrong on the app's servers end. I deleted and added the game back on, logged in and out of fb - still the same result. When will this get fixed???
Classic (by JMBlackie on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:40:00)
While I loved it in the past, since the iOS upgrade or scrabble version update, I can no longer play friends on Facebook. It tells me to login to play with Facebook friends then sends me to Safari/Facebook.com where it tells me I'm already linked in, then back to the same issue on scrabble game screen. Too bad. It stinks.
Can't connect for 3 days straight (by Sizeablepain on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:25:00)
Normally I don't have issues with this game. Been playing it for years, and aside from being annoyed about the fact that a game that I paid for and was promised no ads breaks that promise, I have still enjoyed it. However, I use this game to play against friends on Facebook, and for the past 3 days it has had issues connecting to Facebook, giving me error messages every time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, did the same with the Facebook app, and have even tried the scrabble free counterpart and still end up with the same issue. It is unplayable online with this bug and very infuriating.
Network connection error (by Jlaska1318 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 12:10:00)
I can't connect to game. Keeps saying network connection error. Please fix
App won't connect to Facebook (by DMM192046 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:18:00)
Can't login to Facebook, so I can't play game. Please fix login problem!
Hasn't worked for three days network error (by Pgfan987654321 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:08:00)
Keep getting network error. Have uninstalled and reinstalled and still get message.
Craptastic! (by Kermiegrl on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:04:00)
Currently have five or six games that are in limbo because I keep getting an error message explaining that there's a problem connecting to Facebook so I might experience limited functionality. Limited by butt, no functionality is more like it. My stats should not reflect any of the losses I'll bear due to the inability to play; it's been at least 24 hours since I took my turn in most of those games, so by the time you remove your head from the proverbial orifice, I imagine most of those games will have ended in a forced forfeit. Get your crap together already!!
Scrabble Review (by 75Bells on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:46:00)
Why will there be "network connection issues" for days at a time? Last time was 10 days. We are currently sitting at 3.
Can't log in! (by mjr59 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:19:00)
Please fix! Haven't been able to log in for a day now. Neither can my opponents!!
Now fails to connect to Facebook! (by jcoonrod on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:15:00)
Since the latest update, it totally fails to work. No amount of reloading and rebooting will solve the problem.
Facebook Log-out. (by Kofi Ghana on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 08:02:00)
Latest update is a mess. It just logged me out of Facebook and I can't log-in again. I have been nudged by 6 pending opponents.
I love it!! (by MiguelAMunoz on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 07:19:00)
I would give it a five if it didn't kick me out from my FB account. The interface is beautiful, well designed. Thanks!!! UPDATE: 10/15/14 It's been 3days now with the network error message. I see in the forums many people with the same problem :-(
SCRABBLE Review from 201th to 250th
Can't play with FB Friends (by Aileen828 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 06:53:00)
It used to be just fine and work almost perfectly; now, I can't even play anymore. It keeps stating there's an issue connecting to Facebook and it keeps popping up. I've restarted my phone, deleted/reinstalled the app, etc. A paid app should be better than this. Please fix this bug.
Won't open (by HippieMommers on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 06:16:00)
Says that Facebook I'm not connected to Facebook and it will not open And can't see my games. My friends think I'm mad at them because all my games are mute. I did not mute my games. this is a bug. fix it please. 9/30/14 - I do not want to be asked to play Dark Ages every time I log on to play
Luv Scrabble (by Cecil3d on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 04:01:00)
Really like this game. Fun to play against the computer for fast-paced games. Also to play with friends or random oppnents! Lots of fun with a free app!!
Facebook connection issue (by Stiletto312 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:52:00)
I've been playing with the app for several years and do so regularly with Facebook friends. Since yesterday I continuously get a connection error message and my Facebook games won't download despite showing as connected. I've tried deleting and reloading. I get the same error on all my devices: iPhone 6, iPad, iPad mini. Please fix this issue.
Very frustrated (by AmberEyes95 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:30:00)
I have been unable to play for the past two days. It keeps saying there is a network error. Please fix. Seems to be since either this last update or facebook's latest update.
Trouble and more trouble (by Dk262 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:25:00)
I supposedly paid for an "ad free" version, but still get hit by EA to buy other games. Also I haven't been able to play for several days because of a "network error" that won't allow me to connect to my games.
Network error (by nickname-ha on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:17:00)
Current update is unplayable.
You all must be your own worst enemy (by Davecman on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:02:00)
Getting a Facebook error all day can only play on the computer. FIX IT! There's a reason why an imitator like words with friends has so many more users then you. IT WORKS!
Connectivity issues?? (by Dahliadee on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:22:00)
I'm a regular player but for the past 2 days I haven't been able to connect. I get a message that says, there are problems connecting to Facebook. I can get to Facebook with no problem outside of this app. Please advise. Thank you.
Generally like the app but.... (by lnconley on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 02:05:00)
Since I updated to iOS 8, the game has been closing down mid-game. I'm not sure if this is the fault of the app or iOS 8.
Network Error (by candyhog on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 01:33:00)
The latest annoyance is a ‘network error’ that makes the iPhone app not connect to FB. I’ve been using it for years and it has always been a lousy app: slow, bad UI/UX, stupid features (sound effects?), the ads. EA obviously doesn’t take much pride or even interest in it. Use Lexulous or Words with Friends.
Scrabble (by Momma Lion & Little Merri on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 01:26:00)
This is a fun game but I seem to have way too many technical issues. My game freezes and sometimes can't connect to Facebook for days at a time. It causes me to lose on games I had pending and affects my stat percentage. I would otherwise give it 5 stars.
App is a pain (by jamesmccurdy1 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 01:25:00)
Suddenly stopped connecting to Facebook. Can't play my games. Argh please fix!!
Not happy right now (by Tralin13 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 01:23:00)
I have the paid version and for the last few days it tells me it cannot connect to FaceBook, so I can't play my games. My mother also has the paid app and she can't access her FaceBook games either. Yet, another friend of mine is not having this problem at all and she has the free app.

Just recently, i an unable to access the scrabble app on either iphone or ipad. Tried eveything. Nothing has chamged since yesterday. Frustrating
Network problems (by Orangeville71 on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 00:44:00)
For some reason the past 2 days I cannot connect to the network so I cannot continue my games in process. I have contacted those I am playing against and the can't connect to the network either. What is going on? I'm very frustrated!!!
I LOVE Scrabble (by Maxine Houser on Thu, 16 Oct 2014 00:08:00)
I'm a die-hard Scrabble fan, but the app is not my favorite. I like the auto add for points and the teacher, but updates don't seem to improve the game.

All the bugs are aparrently out. Running flawlessly but for how long? Don't fu*k it up! Now I'm going to install iOS update. Nice knowing you perfectly running game. All good things come to an end. Running constantly since update. Not crashed since. Impressive. Welp. Fuc*ked again. Less than a month. Wish you would warn us when you fix bugs. Better not get my games force forfeited.
Network Error/Ads on Paid Version (by ldpullins on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 14:14:00)
I have not been able to play my turns due to a network error. Is something going on? I've tried everything and know it is not on my end. Have been a little disappointed with the PAID version with the ads and error messages.
Won't connect to Facebook (by Lamb2112 on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:54:00)
Can't play current games or start new ones since the app just tells me "Network Error" and play may be limited. Argh. At least I don't have to see ads anymore this way.

Internet (by Hessian9 on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 12:39:00)
Why does this app always have so much trouble making an internet connection from my iPod touch 5th gen with ios7... when all of the other apps that I have, like the App Store, can find it easily?
Great Game (by Dwsedona on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 08:52:00)
I play against the computer. There are three levels to challenge you. You may also use the professor for help if need be. The onboard dictionaries make it a snap to play

Scrabble (by charlotte diener on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 04:22:00)
Spotty performance because of woefully limited library of words
Terrible app, ruining a great game (by acwitherow on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 04:09:00)
If words with friends used the same tiles and distribution list as scrabble I would never use this app. This app has multiple issues that haven't been fixed from update to update: 1) Logging in. I have many apps and not ONE of them gives me as much grief logging in as this app! Seriously why can't this issue be fixed? For as long as I've had scrabble (over 2 years), logging in with either Origen or Facebook or BOTHA has always been an issue. Who is in charge of this, and why are they still working for you???? This is ridiculous. I know it's not my phone because I've changed phones over the years. And I have friends who have the same exact issues. 2) Notifications randomly stop working. This is more frustrating than if the notifications were never to work, because then I would expect to have to log in and see in which games I have a turn to play. But because it is random, I can unknowingly spend hours/days with a single turn. 3) VERY unfair that I can be nudged out of a game by forced forfeit when I don't even have the ability to log in due to YOUR incompetence. 4) ADVERTISEMENTS in the PAID version of the game? That is not just incompetence, it is unethical. This has been an issue for at least the past three updates and should have been fixed IMMEDIATELY. If this is what the paid version is like, I would hate to be subjected to whatever insanity the free version is promoting. Although I wish I had known the paid version is this bad; I never would have spent a single cent on it. Scrabble is a great game but you're ruining the fun of playing it with your bugs (which have been in existence as long as this app has) and ads (which I paid to have removed). If I knew how to escalate these complaints, trust me I would.
Ads? Slow to load? Buggy? (by Gorgando on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 02:50:00)
Why do I see ads when I paid for the ad-free app? It takes about 10x longer to load this app than my next slowest loading app. And there are new bugs with every update. Currently it's unplayable because of phantom connectivity issues.
EA Sports needs to fix this!! (by Regulator4978 on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 02:22:00)
Can't connect to my friends via Facebook on the mobile app so I can't play my games. Please fix.
Bad update Bad support (by Princess dedeboo on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 01:24:00)
I have uninstalled and reinstalled my game dozens of times. I have contacted support as many times. I posted this review when I had my iPhone 4S. Eventually the app kind of worked. Now I have a 5S all updates current. Can't even open a game. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Again no results. Contacted support. No results.
So.....slow (by Haffeyc on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 01:13:00)
Could the startup get any slower? This last update for iOS 8 is ridiculously slow when opening Scrabble. No other app on my phone takes this long.
Update please! (by Rixan on Wed, 15 Oct 2014 00:28:00)
I love to play scrabble with my family. But lately that's been almost impossible with all the crashes and server errors I've been encountering. Has a hard time connecting to Facebook, where most of the people I play with are. Maybe that's because I'm using iOS 8 on my iPhone 6? Please update and fix the bugs!!!
Has completely stopped working (by IssaBee zzzzz on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 23:54:00)
Every since I've paid for this app I've regretted it.
Login and other problems (by Mike in Lyons, IL on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 22:47:00)
I can't believe that EA or Hasbro are happy with this app. It has always been plagued by bugs that make this a second rate (at best) competitor with Words With Friends. The app continues to try and get you to buy their other apps (which is advertising) and sends repeated notifications trying to get you to play the app. Then there is the return of the network connection error that prevents Facebook login. This problem has reared its ugly head again. Buying this app was a complete waste of money. DO NOT BUY.
No Notifications (by DakotaMilkshakes on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 16:02:00)
I wish notifications worked and it leveraged the Apple Game Center to connect to fellow friends. Instead notifications don't work and you have to register for some Origins account. It's not complicated. Game Center has been around for years and is solid. Why make it more complex?
Scrabble (by a chandler rose on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 14:25:00)
Entertaining and easy to play.
TIRED OF NETWORK ERROR (by Singingbirder on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 13:19:00)
Network errors many times even when good cel phone coverage. Also "see complete games" doesn't work Chat is often muted
Needs disclosure (by KathyZaro on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 01:35:00)
It is a pretty good program though it has a tendency of crashing intermittently. One drawback is the massive number of ads that interrupt play and are quite distracting. I would prefer paying for the app and not having to suffer through the ads.
Scrabble (by Yea65 on Tue, 14 Oct 2014 01:33:00)
I enjoy playing against the computer. Do see words I have never heard of but it is also a learning experience.
Takes up to 40 seconds to load (by AB Fanatic100 on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 17:20:00)
Yes, I timed it. It takes up to 40 seconds to load the full version in the latest upgrade. Very frustrating.
Needs updating (by EmOriginals on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 15:33:00)
Needs to be updated to a more modern dictionary. Too many newer words not accepted. it's a fun way to pass time but pricey because you have to pay for iPhone and ipad making it an $18.00 game.
Good game, but (by Sheree555 on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 14:55:00)
Please do something about my app crashing all the time. After the last update it started happening. I can't even play anymore.
Very good with room for improvements (by Caramba876 on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 02:59:00)
The overall experience and graphics are good, but I wish it would give you word definitions! It would be great to know the meanings of the words played by the computer. The price should be cut by half. Otherwise a good game app.
Takes forever to load (by 2nd Cityzen on Mon, 13 Oct 2014 00:20:00)
The new version seems improved but takes an extremely long time to boot up regardless of connectivity. There are als strange cross-sell ad popups in the ad-free paid version.
Thought it was just me! (by 2 Doxies on Sun, 12 Oct 2014 23:45:00)
I started two games after the update, neither will load again though I can see its my turn. Plus, I was proud of my stats and now they're all gone. Dudes, not cool. No choice but to play WWFs.
SCRABBLE Review from 251th to 300th
Fix it!! (by appalcarp on Sun, 12 Oct 2014 23:16:00)
App was better before 'update.' It now crashes repeatedly (iOS8). The dictionary is a waste as words that are NOT in dictionary are allowed. I want the Standard dictionary it had before. Loses track of game you are playing and starts a new one rather than the 'continue.' This game needs serious work. If not willing to keep it up, sell the license you bought as official Scrabble to someone who can. Take a hint from the Windows Version SUPER game that works almost perfectly. Get the license from Infogrames! The songs, Maven, etc. Make it work.
Disappointing (by Jimpace131 on Sun, 12 Oct 2014 22:03:00)
Update was a terrible move. I get more vowel and consonant runs than I've seen in 50 years of playing scrabble, the score on the board blocks the last letter of the word, and I've just spent 10 minutes trying to get back to a game I am playing.
Scrabble (by 2005Wrangler on Sun, 12 Oct 2014 19:12:00)
Been playing this for awhile~never had any prior issues, however, on my new iPhone 6+, the ap crashes after I complete a game against the computer. Please fix this!!! It is very annoying!!
Chillax? Seriously? (by meanidea on Sun, 12 Oct 2014 18:11:00)
Only real complaints are the app’s long load and init time, to a lesser degree its responsiveness and refresh upon selection from the app switcher and least of all its minor flaky network connectivity issues. I dislike the occasional error message pop-ups that are fleeting interruptions, appearing most often (infrequently and yet too frequently) due to brief Internet hiccups. Rarely if ever have I experienced extended downtime from EA’s transparent online middleware/infrastructure to support distributed game play. It’s SCRABBLE! [ iOS 8.0.2, iPhone 5s ]

Continually crashes with new update.
Oops! (by PiggCrack on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 22:58:00)
Keeps crashing on iOS 8.0.2. Can't get it to stay open. Please fix this ASAP!
Great Game (by Dannyschic on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 20:13:00)
I play this all the time but since I downloaded IOS8, the game crashes when I start a rematch! I have to create a new game each time... Please fix this!!!
Scrabble crashes!!!! (by sammi ohana on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 19:09:00)
Love playing scrabble but after each game I tap to play again, it gives me a new board but then the app crashes or closes on its own! so freakin annoying!!! please fix it!!!
Hate The Ads (by Rocker Ronnie on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 17:26:00)
Too bad Hasbro has a monopoly on Scrabble because I'd try another version. I hate the prompts to buy more of their crap, which would only deliver even more ads.
Never seem to fix bugs despite telling them (by SkiGymp on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 13:32:00)
Lost a lot of players bc not getting proper push notifications- wrote ae games and hasbro - never a response and no fix yet-more than a yr-love the pure scrabble but...... Frustrated with lack of response
Game worked fine until update (by Metallica_1983 on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 12:46:00)
I enjoyed playing Scrabble. But after the update all it does is crash after opening. I deleted and reinstalled the app. If I can't get the previous version back I want my $8 back!
Not impressed (by Race bird on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 03:41:00)
I don't know what English dictionary this game is using. The computer played the word Greek and when I went and added an S to it it tells me Greeks is not in the English dictionary. Then the computer plays the word Ragu which is not in the English dictionary. The computer seems to play a lot of Asian and non-English words that most of us would not be familiar with. And it crashes quite a bit.
Don't update!! (by texas librarian on Sat, 11 Oct 2014 03:26:00)
I updated the app and now it won't open. I reinstalled it, it opened once then crashed and it won't open again. Not very happy. I want to play scrabble, but I can't. How do I revert to the previous version that was working??
Steven (by Colorado Buff on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:48:00)
Enjoy playing against the computer! Good tech and great response time. The game moves as fast or slowly as needed. Great game.
Love it! (by GranEllen on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:25:00)
I play against the computer, so compete with a lot of unusual words. Helps me solve crossword puzzles. like it better than Candy Crush.
Great brain exercise (by the praise on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:12:00)
This game is a great way to challenge your vocabulary and enjoy doing it. It allows you to check spellings before playing and reveals points summary so you can compare word strengths. When you're looking for something to do, it's easy to open it up and jump right in.
Love it! (by Hey Helen on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:38:00)
Love playing scrabble against similarly skilled opponents.
Auto log-in (by Cloverjocelyn on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:36:00)
Ridiculous that this still isn't fixed.
Fun (by Camy615 on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:28:00)
This app works well. It's seamless, easy, and fun to use. I spend a lot of time on it. It's great. Get it. No regrets.
Terrific game (by Mundelein on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:18:00)
I play a great deal as a way to build vocabulary and flexibility.
Latest update not good (by difrau on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:12:00)
Latest update puts date time and battery life on top of scores which makes it difficult to read either
So little to show .... (by kurious_kevin on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 08:03:00)
... for all the resources EA has. Just lazy coding/product development. So easy to make it something special, but they're probably VERY busy in VERY important meetings.
Great challenge (by sskondo on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 05:22:00)
I love being challenged to find not only new words, but the best way to score more points.
Love this game! (by Debneddie on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 05:12:00)
Love it! It's a great word game!

So much fun. Play against the computer learn lots of me words
Fun game (by Dr.Nurse on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 04:02:00)
I have loved Scrabble since I was a kid. Software updates sometimes are a bit problematic, but it is a great game. Addictive to play with friends through Facebook.
Game is fun, network is awful (by Ralph Waldo on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 03:43:00)
The game is most fun when you can play against friends on Origins Network. Origins , however, is highly unstable, requiring to log on to the network repeatedly, with no option to store user name or password.
Great game (by jtjrg35 on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 03:36:00)
Great game, lots of fun. Will recommend to all my friends.
Great! (by Mommy2lexysumm on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 03:21:00)
I Play it everyday! Love it.
It' scrabble (by T1G3R W00D$ on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 03:19:00)
I love scrabble... Therefore I love this app. Even paid the $8 to get rid of the ads. Totally worth it.
Consistently good (by Wrongrobot on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 03:16:00)

Love this game, play with friends all the time.
Scrabble (by Mark Goodman on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 01:47:00)
For serious Scrabble players, the animation that adds the points to the total slows down the game, and we want it to be faster. Otherwise, nearly perfect app!
I have to sign in more than my bank (by ac60hz on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 01:28:00)
Why do I have to sign in so much? Sometime in the middle of a game, I will have to sign in again. This is really annoying
Scrabble (by Bobfigurski on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 01:25:00)
5 star game site Definitely an excellent game. Only issue is that it doesn't always accept words in my 4th Edition, 2002 American Heritage College Dictionary.....but besides that a really great game to play.
Fun (by Brandon Young on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:42:00)
So addicting and so much fun! Easily the best game app I've purchased
Great (by Chaplain Chris on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:42:00)
I wish there was a way to look up meanings of played words.
Another terrible update :( (by Anaachn on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:14:00)
Seriously, EA, fix auto-login for Origin already! Since you don't seem to have a QA dept, I'll tell you exactly what the issue is: whenever the network changes (from WiFi to 3G, or vise versa, or between two different WiFi sources) the auto-login for Origin (facebook is fine) ceases to function. Not only that, but the app does not remember your email address *or* your password! Simple browsers have been able to do this for 20 years. How freakin' hard can it be? Additionally, this new update has introduced a slew of new bugs: Chat is set to "mute" automatically every game, preventing any chat whatsoever; a facebook and RL friend on PC cannot tell who she is playing with me because I am on mobile; the "skip" button no longer functions when the teacher is engaged leading to unwanted skips to next game; and worst of all, the best new feature added in memory - the ability to see the top bar of the phone that shows the time, network, battery, etc - has been disabled in this update! Argh, I guess this is why EA is known as the worst game developer in video games. Using 3.6.2 on iPhone 4, iOS 7.1 Obviously Scrabble is pretty much the best word game ever invented, which is why I care. If the game weren't so fun I'd have quit using this darn app years ago, sorry for the nerd rage. :P
Scrabble (by Molly Turgiss on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 23:10:00)
I've been Scrabbling for 3 years and love the game. Having to log-in all the time is tiresome, tho. Network failures have improved, but still crop up too often. Great game!
Much more fun than words w/friends (by DB Wheeler on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 23:04:00)
The game is well designed but I get tired of having to sign in all the time! It says 'automatic sign in' but it isn't. It's ridiculous having to fill in those tiny boxes and it takes so long and half the time it doesn't work.
Great game (by Thresandsean on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 22:56:00)
I have spent many hours enjoying this game playing with friends and playing with the computer. There are so many unknown words in our language. Will continue my addiction to Scrabble. Thanks.
Love it (by LavonneS on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 22:41:00)
Pay with my husband laying next to me and my son in Chicago at the same time. Great for keeping in touch. Sometimes does some funky things with letters disappearing and will need restarted. My favorite version of my favorite all time game.

Scrabble Needs Work (by Giacomo817 on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 21:56:00)
I love the game but am so frustrated by how often I have to type my username and password in order yo play. I'm not sure why Origin's auto login never works.
Update (by Maedogogi on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 19:24:00)
I hope it gets more functional now!
frustrated (by that's all there is? on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:20:00)
Great game. Like playing it but it freezes / reboots when internet is lost. Why not have a switch to NOT be connected so it can be played without annoying "network lost" messages. Not everyone is playing with friends.
Awesome (by ClaudeElie on Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:08:00)
I love this game apart from the fact that it reliably forgets my origin ID. At the very least it should save the ID and make me re-enter the pw only.

Good but... (by Cannolee on Wed, 09 Apr 2014 06:03:00)
Would be great if players in same time zone was an option, I stopped choosing opponents since they are always in a different zone!
DO NOT BUY (by metrobruce on Wed, 09 Apr 2014 05:43:00)
This version makes you type in your full email and password almost every turn you take! It renders this costly game useless. Avoid wasting your money - caveat emptor!
Awful (by Stephmont on Wed, 09 Apr 2014 02:53:00)
I have never taken the time to write a review in ANY app. Felt compelled to write this one bc this is so bad. I am constantly getting logged out of Origins(?) which is some required front end the value if which I have no idea. Everyone I play with is also frustrated. Games lost, profiles can't be found etc etc. Too bad there are no other options - if you want to play Scrabble, this sucky app is all you get.
Love this app! (by Chaichai18 on Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:10:00)
Easy yo use, fun app. A must buy for scrabble lovers!
Terrible! (by drobbins on Tue, 08 Apr 2014 14:56:00)
The game is ok, but I have to log in every few minutes. That is so annoying.
Same problem, constant logins (by vonlost on Tue, 08 Apr 2014 13:03:00)
I have a few games to catch up on, I am logged in, I play, hit Next, and I'm taken to the username/password screen to login again. Same bug for years. Amazing. But then it's EA...
I give up... (by Mfreeman2953 on Mon, 07 Apr 2014 20:17:00)
I love Scrabble, but cannot deal with this annoying app any longer. I am done logging into Origin over and over. Congrats, EA, if your intent was to ruin a great game, you've succeeded.
Scrable (by Miller88C on Mon, 07 Apr 2014 19:52:00)
Great game. Wish the teacher would not show me the same option I chose.

Great game. Wish there was a rotate screen function and as of now (just bought the app), I can't sign up with Facebook to find my friends... Can you please fix this? Then will get 2 more stars.
Log in annoying!! (by YAWP on Sun, 06 Apr 2014 23:46:00)
Hate the constant logging in. If game is idle for more than a day I can understand, but if you're constantly playing it's stupid to keep logging in. And very annoying that Origin will not allow auto saving!! Never notified when opponents play. Please fix.

Despite good game, FLAWED from the get go (5+ yrs), but NO tech support, rare updates (by Karla919 on Fri, 04 Apr 2014 05:12:00)

What dictionary are they using??! (by The fixer # 1 on Thu, 03 Apr 2014 00:30:00)
I love this game and I actually prefer it to the good old board game. I have to wonder where some of these crazy words come from. Anyone know?
EA Text Spam (by IndeK on Wed, 02 Apr 2014 15:07:00)
If you like this game you won't like the text message ads EA sends to your phone every time you play.
Bad connection (by raspberrybee on Wed, 02 Apr 2014 12:10:00)
Awful. Ever since the forced upgrade, it won't stay logged into Origin. I sometimes need to re-login 5/6 times a day. It's ridiculous. Also, I don't like the new teacher who is always happy, even when I do a bad play (unless I pass of course, he's never happy with that). Please fix the origin issues!
Great app (by AlwaysLearning5 on Wed, 02 Apr 2014 09:25:00)
I love it! I always wanted to learn to play Scrabble. Thanks for teaching me.
Scrabble (by Vixen Kilroy on Wed, 02 Apr 2014 02:36:00)
Have always been hooked on Scrabble - but having it in my palm whenever & wherever - is priceless! Also love being able to pause & resume at any point. No complaints.
When are you going to fix Scrbble? (by Atebow on Tue, 01 Apr 2014 02:46:00)
Scrabble still continually logs me out of Facebook and won't let me log back in or says at a time. Why can't you figure out how to allow players to stay logged in, like other games do? What is the purpose of logging us out of Facebook if its so difficult to get back in? Even when we are already logged on to FB we silk can't connect Scrabble. Argh!
Fix bugs please !! (by sarah-bella on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 22:24:00)
I love Scrabble and have always been really obsessed with the game - board game and app. Though lately, Ive become super frustrated with the app, because everytime I go on to play, I never make it further than just entering my age.... It keeps crashing !!!! Please fix the bug asap.. I NEED TO PLAY !!
Bad (by Edwardw32 on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 14:52:00)
Great game but phenomenally poor and frustrating execution. Crashes constantly and you have to log in repeatedly. Extremely messy programming.
Great game (by Popup223 on Sun, 30 Mar 2014 20:03:00)
Like all scrabble games, it's a challenge that is fun and keeps your brain working
Origin login issues continue (by Soi2k on Sun, 30 Mar 2014 15:48:00)
The origin login method seems to be a distinctly second class citizen. I do not care for Facebook, but if you don't want to have to enter your login credentials at least once a day, using a Facebook login is your only option. At least, that's been my experience.
Scrabble (by Oldmeme on Sun, 30 Mar 2014 02:52:00)
Since I am older I play to keep my mind working and also for the fun of it. I play against myself and wish there was a way to put names in as users so we could just touch the names and go.
Great game. Bad flaws (by Rholly1226 on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 23:27:00)
I've been playing for years and within the last few months, I no longer get alerted when it's my turn. And if that is not bad enough, when I open the app, I have to "log in" EVERY TIME!! Very annoying! Please fix or I'm going back to WORDS WITH FRIENDS!!!!
Scrabble (by Trueness2 on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 19:47:00)
Scrabble is a lot of fun. The dictionary helps poor spellers and the teacher can frustrate you with a higher score. I recommend the game to scrabble lovers
ORIGIN, Keep me logged in!!! Please!!!!!!! (by Crgslst fan on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 17:23:00)
I love everything about the game and app but I Hate having to log in to Origin almost every time I want to play. I can't even use a quick key command to paste my email add. Fix Origin!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then it's 5 stars...
Obscure the word (by Vista Clara on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 17:19:00)
The program uses ridiculously obscure words including some that are arguably not words in the English language. St is a word? The program seems to allow any two letter combination as valid English. I think an option to choose a standard abridged dictionary would be a good feature for this product. All IMHO.
Buggy Badges--still!?! (by Germbomber on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 15:29:00)
Fix the badges! Badges are telling me there's a game to play on when there's not. I enjoy playing, but don't send a BADGE NOTIFICATION as a way of ADVERTISING!
Issues. (by Wittenauer7 on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 07:26:00)
This app has been frozen nearly two weeks. I've deleted it, re-downloaded it twice, and it still has issues with a network error. It does this with or without wifi. Please update/fix!
Not Official Scrabble (by Bruin gal '93 on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 03:47:00)

Entertaining (by 2by2s on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 03:19:00)
If you like scrabble you will enjoy it. I play it whenever I have a long wait somewhere. You don't realize how quickly time goes by when you are playing it.
I like it (by newmoon on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 01:44:00)

I get daily alerts when there is no game trying to trick me into starting a game. Then there is no alert when I'm actually playing a game. The game is great, the app is awful! When is somebody going to fix this?!
Enjoyable (by Fonstev on Fri, 28 Mar 2014 01:55:00)
It is everything I want it to be and mobil to boot which makes it great for on the go. I really like the teacher showing me how I could have made a better choice!
SCRABBLE Review from 351th to 400th

App crashes when logging into Facebook (by ikeith1 on Wed, 26 Mar 2014 19:07:00)
First off, I HOPE EA reads these reviews so I'm not wasting my time. Recently, I CANNOT log into Facebook from the main menu. When I try to do so, EVERY TIME the app crashes. I can log into Origin which at least brings up my record and stats however, no Facebook means not playing any friends. When this problem has happened in the past, EA did come out with a bug fix update. EA please do so again. This is a problem ON YOUR NETWORK with YOUR GAME.
I LOVE this game! (by Playtime321 on Wed, 26 Mar 2014 12:50:00)
I've been playing this game for years. I am so addicted to it. My family almost assumes that if I'm on my iPad, I'm probably playing Scrabble. I have enjoyed playing many different games, but I always come back to this one. I mostly play the computer...people are too slow. I don't play the highest level because the words are usually well beyond any that I've ever encountered, but the second from the top is now perfect for me...challenging, but most words are recognizable. I currently have about a 33% win percentage over about 2,000 games. I haven't encountered any real problems with the game, but I have an older iPad...maybe that makes a difference.
Always an issue (by Towerh2 on Wed, 26 Mar 2014 02:52:00)
Great game but the most problematic/issue-prone game/app I've ever had on my phone. I've been playing the game for 3-4 years now and as soon as one bug goes away, another one comes. It's not like all the other apps/games that you have where there's a known problem and then an update comes along and everything is all better. With this game there's always something. Either you can't log in or you can't see all your games on your phone (that one has been going on for years now, never fixed - can see all game son facebook but not on the phone). My current problem is that it is imposing a game limit on me that never existed before. I now can't start games against random opponents even though I have only 10 games going as I just get a message that I have reached my limit. Very annoying since I paid for this game.
Love it but need an updated Mac version (by mjgk on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 22:18:00)
I primarily run this on my iPad, competing with five or six people at a time located around the world. I really do like the application but wish it were updated to run under the current version of Mac OS X.
Annoying push notifications (by Joshml82 on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 15:01:00)
At least once a day you get annoying push notifications that have nothing to do with the games you are playing. This is obnoxious and needs to stop. It also stopped sending me notifications when my friends play. Lastly why does it stop my music from playing every time I open the app?
Impatient(v3.61) (by HardR0ck on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 13:04:00)
Auto login does not work. Why so much security for a game?
:( (by /\/\3|-| on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 04:43:00)
big price - slow/glitchy game. no game alerts or pushes but irrelevant alerts galore.
What happened to the alert?! (by Tabkat16 on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 02:08:00)
While this game is great it doesn't alert anymore when it's my turn. Sometimes I get an alert but most of the time I don't. Also you have to keep logging in. I can sometimes log in 3 to 4 times a day. Please fix these issues.
Log in issues (by MommaGigi2004 on Tue, 25 Mar 2014 00:27:00)
Doesn't keep me logged in. I have to log in several times while playing. Frustrating for an app I paid for.
Poppi (by PoppiD on Mon, 24 Mar 2014 19:05:00)
With upgrade, we lost capability for using over our personal network. I would like this option back.
So DISAPPOINTED! (by Oneblessedperson. on Mon, 24 Mar 2014 16:15:00)
There are enough words to describe how much I hate the new version. Is there a way to go back? Impossible to enjoy. I PAID for my app, may I please get a refund?
Scrabble is great! (by Lilybella05 on Sat, 04 Jan 2014 20:53:00)
I love Scrabble because I learn new words, I play with other people, and it keeps my mind working. I also love scrabble because the teacher icon is usually supporting. That's why I love scrabble
MY ALLTIME FAVORITE (by StarSharon on Sat, 04 Jan 2014 20:48:00)
This is my favorite app. I only play against both computers, so I have never competed against others. There's a variety of ways a person can choose to play and different levels of difficulty. This app has never let me down and I've even ordered some books to help me with some words to use. Great for beginners, people are trying to get their mind in shape and anyone with some time on their hands. I love this app.
Scrabble (by Queenie1946 on Sat, 04 Jan 2014 20:37:00)
First time playing for several months, had fun. Not identified any problems so far.
Please change the app to have less notifications (by AJ ROSALES on Sat, 04 Jan 2014 15:19:00)
I used to like this game until you changed it to have annoying spam message notifications. Please give us the option to disable them somehow.
Fix this!!!! (by Xyondan on Sat, 04 Jan 2014 01:50:00)
Still playing but still frustrated beyond belief at the repeated refresh of games. I'm tempted to switch to Words With Friends.
Good app (by Frozen pen on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 22:08:00)
Enjoy it. Glad you got rid of the auto recall. Hated it. Would be nice to see what letters the computer is left with in addition to points.
Unwanted Notices (by App Advisor on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 21:43:00)
Game is fine, but each day I get annoying alerts. There is no way either in settings or options to stop alerts. FIX THIS!!
Scrabble (by Robbleskoy on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 10:50:00)

Was great until yesterday Anybody home reading these reviews!!!!!! (by Discam57 on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 10:10:00)
Have been playing this game for months without a problem, until yesterday. No matter what I do I cannot log on, I've tried everything without any luck. Cannot load any games I was playing, very frustrating! Very hard to get app support also. ANYONE HOME AT EA READING ALL THESE REVIEWS!!!!!!
Great game but has flaws (by atlremix on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 05:42:00)
The game is good overall. I hate that you have to continuously login to Origin. One time should be enough. Also, when you hit backspace in the dictionary, the letters switch to All Caps which is super annoying!
Bring back the original version (by Mark9876543 on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 03:27:00)
The original version of Scrabble (1.55.66) and for iPad (1.15.73) (fully paid versions) were excellent. For some unknown reason, last year EA decided to rewrite these programs completely to a new "look and feel" - took the original local player options away (including the Scrabble Tiler app) and introduced advertising, marketing and Facebook into the product even for the paid versions. You have this annoying teacher cannot be turned off (on the iPhone version). The original version before this rewrite was excellent even when you played it on the iPhone - well unfortunately the new version looks ugly, terrible user interface (clicks don’t work immediately and is not responsive - that is on the latest iPhone 5s) - and seriously a poor effort by that programming team. Not sure why it was rewritten - maybe there was a $ deal with Facebook or they lost the source code for the original code! Fortunately, I was able to use Apple Time Machine to find the original versions - “Scrabble 1.15.66.ipa” and “Scrabble 188.8.131.52.ipa” for iPad and restore these versions and copy into iTunes - just have to be careful never to update these by mistake. This is not something you expect from a big game company like EA! (EA are you checking the feedback which say the same thing?)
Origin login keeps expiring (by Shripathi on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 02:18:00)
The game works just fine but the origin login keeps auto-expiring for no rhyme or reason. Sometimes, it will stay logged on for weeks, while sometimes it required relogging in multiple times a day. I know the Facebook login works very well but when I try to play with my non-facebook friends using the origin login, its a pain.
Great but has log in issues (by Ted Frost on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 01:54:00)
My wife and I love to play this game. Unfortunately the game is plagued by login issues. Half the time we can not even log in and the other half it makes us log in when we reopen the app after only a few minutes. Also it reads auto logging in but it never auto logs in. This needs to be addressed.
Negative 5 stars (by Boltz2000 on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 01:44:00)
Could there possibly a more incompetent company than EA? I don't think so.

Love it, but now (by Xoxoxomo on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 01:26:00)
I love this game and have been playing it for years. But now, maybe because of an update, I cannot rematch someone I just finished a game with. The app support is a giant maze of absolutely no help. I now have to constantly to log into ea to play. I'm very frustrated now with this app.
Now $7.99 and you log me out 3 times a day?? (by Customer999 on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 01:25:00)
Really? Save your money, friends. Play Words with Friends.
Worst (by Actender on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 01:09:00)
I've complained before. Log-in is unreliable. EA's website crashes constantly agsin. Just stinks when $10 bucks gets you junk!
Not happy (by Pennypincher201321077 on Fri, 03 Jan 2014 00:14:00)
I am upset with all the updates, never notifies me (& yes, notification feature is on), always logs me off, even after playing a turn immediately. I PAID for the app years ago, loved it then. Bring the old fashion scrabble back.
Make facebook Invisable, Please (by NukieNewc on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 17:55:00)
I love the game and I would give 5 stars if they would have the option to shut off the extraneous facebook crap. I like playing online with friends but I am so sick of the pop-up windows! I'm not a social media slave and I do not want to blab to the world every time I get a seven letter word. This only makes me think of few choice four letter words... An offline play mode would be great too since the game won't stop alerting me when it can't connect to the internet. Perhaps a quick access smart toggle button so I don't have shut off my wifi but rather stop the game from trying to connect? Thanks!
Scrabble (by Lyn9010 on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 14:24:00)
Love playing but it keeps crashing. Also have to log into origin several times a day.
Great app but buggy (by 55fiddler on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 13:59:00)
Gives a 'network error' message about 5 seconds after logging in on iPhone iOS 7, then works fine. Fun app!
Scrabble Warrior (by Sean Carrington on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 09:51:00)
One of the best game Apps ever Timeless Fun!
Newest update (3.6.1) at bottom (by DareMachina on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 07:28:00)
Installed the newest build (1.3.83)and it's clear EA has been reading the comments. The confusion with Quick Play is now gone. Before you would set up your opponent (vs human, vs comp, single player) in the option menu and launch with Quick Play. In this update you tap Quick Play and it takes you to a menu to set up the rules! Exactly what I was hoping for! The ads after winning a game seem to be gone as well. I bought this game at launch (9.99) and those ads were a sore spot for me. There is also a news ticker that appears on the menu. Tapping on it reroutes you to safari but EA was smart and added a pop up so you can cancel the request. Suggestions: The starting video of scrabble tiles looks terrible and detracts from the clean visuals found throughout the game. Please add teacher mode to all modes. Its an incredible asset to those wanting to get better at Scrabble, it would also be a selling point vs other scrabble-like games on the AppStore Push notification wouldn't be so bad either; especially if it was for online multiplayer instead of facebook ;) *Update 1.3.96* The game feels a little faster but no major changes for me. As you can see from the above review I did not have any issues from the last update (using iphone 3GS with OS 4.0b1) but I'm glad to see that EA got a bugfix out quick for all the users having problems. My suggestions for the last update still stand especially the scrabble tile loading screen as it is still of a poor quality. I'd rather see the black Scrabble screen add the EA tile under it with the game loading in the background. Fade the black to red and the menu comes down on top of it. *Update 1.5.90* All I can say is WOW Scrabble loads fast The new menu is fantastic and easy to navigate The Teacher helper is now in ALL modes and can be turned off with a single tap at any time It saves a game in each mode I'd swear EA made this update just to shut me up ;) So the only thing left to nag about? Game Center! I don't want a Facebook account but I made one just to play this with friends. It would be nice to have the option to skip it (though I don't think GC is made for 3-4 player invitations) *Update 3.2.1* Basically a words with friends clone now. Except the game is still suffering from bugs with online play. Also, you will be harassed with push notifications for all kinds of useless things (looking at the included dictionary, or downloading an update that you already have installed) even though doing so is against the AppStore developer agreement. If that wasn't bad enough I get 3 copies of the same push notification within 5 minutes. Abusing push notifications means most people will turn them off. No notifications means users are less likely to make timely moves and may forget about games entirely. Which makes the game useless. --- 3.6.1 For the love of all that is good in this world STOP abusing the rules of the AppStore and sending me notifications at 4 am because I'm not playing the amount of online games you deem appropriate!
Excellent version! (by Oracle1001 on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 05:22:00)
Excellent version of Scrabble! Definitely worth the price!
Love it! (by Martapod on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 01:29:00)
Such a nice game! Way better than Words with Friends. Only complaint is that it sometimes doesn't update fast enough. Nevertheless, great app and truly a classic game!
Good implementation ruined by abusive push notifications, ads (by ChrisThielen on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 01:01:00)
This game would be great if EA didn't violate Apple's push notification rules with ads. Just charge an honest amount and make an honest game.
Beats Words With Friends by a mile! (by Wingman56 on Thu, 02 Jan 2014 00:08:00)
I got tired of WWF accepting opponents' mis-spelled words. Scrabble doesn't accept those common misspellings. Teacher stretches my vocabulary, too!

I'd rather play Word Perfect. (by MTWiseman on Wed, 01 Jan 2014 23:53:00)
Never notifies me that it's my turn. Nudges never work. Worst of all I have to log in to Origin every time I want to play a turn.
Reviews (by Eventlady on Wed, 01 Jan 2014 23:46:00)
I love playing this game, but it would be nice to be able to hit a key for the meaning of the word.
Two major problems (by Eileen F on Wed, 01 Jan 2014 20:21:00)
I'm puzzled as to why I paid for an app that can't even keep me logged in. I'm constantly being signed out of origin and auto login never works. Also, push notifications aren't going through even though all of my settings are set to receive them. If I know my opponent, we now text each other "tag" to inform the other it's their turn. Quite a pain.
Better & suggested update ... (by Leland7871 on Wed, 01 Jan 2014 19:42:00)
I use Scrabble almost every day and I am also glad the developers removed the auto recall. I like that it doesn't clear out the word in the dictionary as it had in a previous version. And, if you misspell a word, you can edit it. I suggest making it magnify to make it easier to see on a small screen. I am also a bit annoyed having to repeatedly sign in to Origin but, all and all, thank you developers for my favorite app!
Fun and challenging! (by mspiggy2 on Wed, 01 Jan 2014 15:27:00)
This is such a great game! Makes you think and work hard, but is also lots of fun!
Improved after update, notifications still annoying (by ViridianPhoton on Wed, 01 Jan 2014 14:04:00)
I only want to get notified that my opponent moved. I DON'T need to be notified, repeatedly, about forcing an idle opponent to forfeit, that I can play with random people online, that I haven't played in a while, etc. I understand after the first time. If you could selectively disable these that would be fine (rather than disable all or nothing). But getting woken up by a nonsense notification in the middle of the night is really irritating.
Fun to play but.... (by JerryS212 on Wed, 01 Jan 2014 02:57:00)
The Scrabble app is easy to play but could be a much better learning game. It would be great if there was an option to look up a word's meaning. Some of the legitimate words are dubious, as in the case where a word has an alternate spelling in old English. Lastly, when playing against the computer, there is quite a difference between levels. I easily trounce the intermediate level but get pummeled by the advanced level. I have not played against others so cannot comment on app technical issues mentioned by others .
Terrible! Always logs out of Origins! Slow! (by Thirt3en on Tue, 31 Dec 2013 14:48:00)
This app is a monster. I shouldn't have to log back in to play a game every time. I have to keep this app on the main screen just so I don't have to log back in. But when I switch to another app, IT LOGS ME OUT! Why can't this app remember to stay logged in? And why does the username and pswd area have to be soooo tiny along with the fonts. Hard to type in there. Reloading the games are slow too. You're programmers need to speed up this app. It is sooooooo slow when updating.
Useless (by 5632,!!! on Tue, 31 Dec 2013 02:55:00)
I love the game of scrabble but just how many times to I have to "connect" in a day and am forever logging back in. I hit the scrabble icon, it appears then disappears and it usually takes to tries to bring up a game. A better dictionary would also help since its somewhat limiting. For such a great game you sure know how to mess it up!
SCRABBLE Review from 401th to 450th
Scrabble review (by GWBGrampy on Tue, 31 Dec 2013 00:45:00)
I have had a really good time playing with friends, family and strangers. Scrabble keeps my mind busy and active. That is good for people my age.

Great app, use constantly!
Great game, Worst app ever made. (by cberg999 on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 19:31:00)
It would nice to be able to play my turn without having to type out my entire email address and a password to log into origins 7 times a day. I'll take my chances with some thief stealing my phone and playing my scrabble turn guys. Really, it's ok.
Problem with force forfeit (by AkimboCat on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 16:59:00)
There are games in my queue that have gone past the 24 hour force forfeit deadline by 8 or more hours and the games have not ended in my favor yet. Please review and repair prob. 12/31/13 it's really boring playing sooo many players named "guest" without any identifying number...when "guest" starts a rematch, for instance, one cannot tell which player did so...very confusing, very generic, very tiresome!!
Good but needs some bug fixes (by twisted-pixel on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 15:15:00)
I do enjoy this game and so do a lot of my friends however I never get any notifications that they have taken their go.
Sandyinalaska (by SandyinAlaska on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 14:20:00)
Thank you for deleting the auto recall feature, it was very annoying. I really like this game and I am learning a lot of new words - proof that an old dog can learn new tricks LOL. Thanks!
Just like the board game but better (by MatSalleh on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 08:29:00)
Love it. Just like the board game but have a computer to play with. It makes me think even more & stimulates the mind.

Wvfl (by Chick of stamps on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 03:36:00)
It's worth the $1.99 for this game to play without ads! I like to play the pass & play version where I'm both players. Double the brain exercise.
Waste of time (by socalmal on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 02:27:00)
Can't finish games, black screen, logs in/ out repeatedly. Pure trash of an app.
Hurry & fix (by Hudnjnbxb on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 01:33:00)
You've gone & ruined my favorite app again. If a word is misspelled please let me recall the letters. It's a real pain & annoyance to have to replace all the letters if only one letter eg is incorrect. Please fix it. Also many of the words scrabble comes up with are not in any dictionary I have. Update: Not sure why everybody has issues with the game. They took away the annoying auto recall (a good thing). I only play the computer & it all works great.
Awesome (by Bearocs on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 01:22:00)

What's going on? (by seymourdequeen on Mon, 30 Dec 2013 00:43:00)
Crashed twice in 2 days- FIX IT!!!! Noticed all the other posts- is there anyone listening? This app ran perfectly for me for 6 months- and now this. It's much better than WWF, but at least the other is dependable. 'Til someone fixes the problems, don't buy it. NEW FORMAT IS TERRIBLE! Who makes these dumb decisions? Logging on after download of "upgrade" (ugh) was a nightmare. Like most everyone else, I think the old style was better. Crashes and all. Too late now, though... NOW WHAT?(8/5/12) After a week of dealing with new terrible format, I get logged out about every hour. I repeat: who's in charge here?? 12/29/13: I can't stay logged on, can't get list of games, getting tossed when I try. No updates? What gives?
Scrabble (by GLEEK 4 eva on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 21:26:00)
Great game but poor app! Have to continuously log on to origins. Even logs you out while playing. Frequent network error messages. Makes playing a great game very frustrating.
No Friends Pls!!!!!!!!! (by willyb6745 on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 21:05:00)
I like playing the computer... But your ap spends too much time welcoming me back and asking if I want to share. I DON'T ever!!!! Too slow with all this touchy feely Facebook stuff!! I love Scrabble...wish I had another option!! BA Still way to long to load! Why do you have to keep welcoming me back when I've played 300 games? And now you keep asking me if I want to play the computer in the midst of me playing the computer! Automatic letter recall was lousy.. Glad you dumped it ! BA
Past problems fixed. Big fan now. (by Facquat on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 21:02:00)
Had some problems in the past but the current version is easy to use and filled with features (swipe to navigate, instant messaging, dictionary, multi-language support). I just wish it handled off-line (no Internet access) situations better. 11/23/2013 update: still feel exactly the same as what I wrote above a year ago. 12/29/2013 update: still feel exactly the same. Figure out off-line play!! Candy crush handles it. Why can't you! Still like the game, but that's the biggest pain point with this game - it's really a nightmare to deal with regularly getting kicked out, force-crashing the game, deleting and reinstalling.... Frustrating!!!
Fun app (by Yestoday135 on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 20:53:00)
I think this app is well done. The notifications sometime are vexing when they notify me when a player hasn't played their turn. Also, it keeps reminding me that I can now play against a computer, but other than that, I like the app.
Did they play yet (by Flatnsassy on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 18:02:00)
Whether or not opponent has played is NOT obvious until I go through several attempts at "loading" the game -- only to get bogus message blaming MY wifi! This game stinks!

This is a good game. It would be nice if there was a list of words,that someone could know what to spell that was not a good thinker.
Spam Notifications, multiplayer problems (by 11JMD on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 04:27:00)
Game itself is good, but too many problems - won't stay logged in and auto-login doesn't work, popups asking you to start another game, notifications not related to game play, etc. to be 4 or 5 stars for a paid game. Seems like the only difference from the previous version is added annoyances.
Bring back Bluetooth gameplay (by Marc-pdx on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 02:50:00)
Please bring back Bluetooth gameplay. I hate being forced into logging in to a social networking service to play with friends.
Constant logins drove me away (by Bronc0 on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 02:00:00)
Good game, but fed up with having to re-enter my email and password every other time I go to play. If you can't fix the login issue, at the very least, you ought to be able to save your email and password so that re-logging in is a one-click affair. I've moved to words with friends.
Strong armed into upgrading (by lathe66 on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 01:22:00)
EA forced me to upgrade from 1.14.37 to this version by cutting off the ability to play random opponents online and by disabling options. There is NOTHING I like about this upgrade! Fonts are smaller and harder to read, font of points available as you place letters is so tiny you can't read it, dictionary fonts are smaller, menu is an absolute disaster and hard to decipher, buttons at bottom are one color and hard to tell apart. Keep your old version if you don't play online opponents.
The dictionary is insane. (by Don Corazon on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 01:19:00)
Initial Review: I really enjoy this game. However, I have noticed that my iPod gets very hot while I'm playing. And the battery draws down fairly quickly. No other game that I have played heats it up like this one. If it didn't use so much power, it would have gotten five stars. Much Later: Works fine on my iPad and is still challenging. My only complaint is that the dictionary is at times incomprehensible. Often it will reject a word that I know is in common usage here in the US, with the message "not an English word". Then it will use a word like "kraal" or "ratafee" which are foreign. Final Update: Fed up with the seeming arbitrary nature of the “Scrabble Dictionary”. It approves of “GVUGG” and “AZLON” (a brand name) and “OXIM” (which is only found in medical dictionaries; yet it rejects “ADE”. This incomprehensible selection of approved words makes this game intolerable for me.
Fabulous Again!! (by Judyjudyjudy on Sun, 29 Dec 2013 00:52:00)
I played today after a long hiatus , and I am super happy!! You brought back the features that made the a great app in the beginning. Thank you !! I had stopped playing because all the "updates" were terrible! Now--it's perfect!!!
Scrabbler (by Letter perfect on Sat, 28 Dec 2013 21:22:00)
Great! No adds. Wish the words showed a brief definition when either party scored.
Terrible GUI, network disconnects, massively buggy (by mcslain1970 on Sat, 28 Dec 2013 21:07:00)
Constant online disconnects, terrible GUI, buggy game play. You can't even report bugs to the developers now. EA makes you go through a bunch of hoops on a web page that only go to prove this company has terrible design everywhere. I love Scrabble. I loathe this EA iPhone app. Inexcusably and inexplicably bad.
Great game, but power hog (by Don Corazon on Sat, 28 Dec 2013 19:32:00)

So much fun to connect with friends family or random person. Works great! Rarely a problem with connecting games. Recommend very much.
No local play (by American Shorthair on Sat, 28 Dec 2013 02:18:00)
Still didn't bring back local wifi/bt play... No wifi or Bluetooth play? It used to have it I'm pretty sure. I dont use Facebook and the Origin account login/verification is extremely frustrating. Tried to reset password account twice and did not work. Oh and the best part is that when I finally got a new account set up it sent a welcome email in Spanish. The actual game is pretty good.

So many missing pieces, I'm amazed all the letters are present (by Earthsaver on Fri, 27 Dec 2013 18:24:00)
I think Scrabble asks for a review every time I score a bingo. Anyway, it still doesn't deserve a great review. Oprah, you own this game now, right? I don't think it lives up to your standards. When will the iPhone and iPad versions be integrated as a universal app? Why aren't notifications reliable and consistent? Why isn't the app always badged with the number of available turns? Why can't I invite opponents using Game Center? Why can't I go straight to a particular game from the notification referring to it? Why doesn't Game Center show available turns for Scrabble? Shall I go on?
Addictive! (by Scrabblelis on Fri, 27 Dec 2013 18:18:00)
Enjoying this! It's v addictive. Why do I have to keep logging in though? It's very annoying. Also, get rid of the constant adverts every time I play a turn! Much better now the tiles aren't recalled automatically!

Scrabble without adds (by Baghandlr99 on Fri, 27 Dec 2013 17:33:00)
I thought it would bring games from old scrabble game to the new one. I also didn't think I would need to log onto Facebook to play with people.
Love it! (by 23Louise on Fri, 27 Dec 2013 09:12:00)
Great app! Very addictive!
Grnize (by grinize on Fri, 27 Dec 2013 04:06:00)
Great game. I love the opportunity to learn new words with the teacher option. Plus my other game skills are improving. (Words w friends). Thanks so much.
Real scrabble (by Caseyluria on Thu, 26 Dec 2013 15:06:00)
I like that it is the real game of Scrabble, the only thing that bothers me is that I have to constantly reduce the size so that I can look at the whole board which is where I want to be most of the time.
Still a classic (by JAA3 on Thu, 26 Dec 2013 06:51:00)
Keeps to the basics of the original game which I like.
Somewhat better (by Islandemmy on Thu, 26 Dec 2013 01:11:00)
I am not happy with this new Scrabble format: however, the "teacher" is less silly and annoying. Now it just makes crazy faces and I really can't tell what it thinks. However, it doesn't make me feel like a three year old anymore. I LOATHE the "share on Facebook" thing when I win or Bingo! I don't WANT to. I can no longer nudge or force forfeit, as my ongoing games disappear within way less than 24 hours! Games just disappear! Yet I am nudged constantly! I cannot see any of my games that are even a day long without playing! And my iPhone scrabble icon ALWAYS says I have 45 games going. Right. WTH? Oh, and what is with the CHEATING sites? I can always tell when someone HAS to be cheating. I have deleted the game and tried to start over. Nothing. I turn on my phone and turn it back on. Nothing. No rhyme or reason. Frustrating. I don't want to play WWF, but if this stuff does not get fixed, I don't know. I play random opponents constantly. Still, nothing. PLEASE fix this! And PLEASE quit putting me against opponents with higher scores than ANYONE could have!
Love Scrabble, hate App (by mariumlovesart on Wed, 25 Dec 2013 23:33:00)
New app as of Dec. 25, 2014 freezes constantly. Trouble logging in, too. Very frustrating. Same issues going on for years.
Update/New not Improved! (by Nella 9 on Wed, 25 Dec 2013 18:15:00)
The original version allowed easy connectivity & play with friends. This latest monstrosity is beyond lame! I wish I could get a refund. Shame on those who changed this once loved app!
Love Scrabble, hate logoff (by Beaten1 on Wed, 25 Dec 2013 12:57:00)
I've been playing this app for several years and Scrabble for decades. I love everything about this app except it constantly logs me out! I hate that, please, please, please fix it and you get five stars!!!
New Scrabble Version. (by Wackerf on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 23:05:00)
The old version was great. This update ruined it. No option to win by points. It appears other buyers are not happy either. But my big problem is the way players can win. What happened? The latest version is very good. This is my second rating. The best word option still does not work. This is my third rating. Updates continue to improve the game, The best word option still does not work, as usual. Otherwise, I agree with Ameisha. It's a relaxing game. Always have liked it. This is my fourth rating. It looks good. The best word should be applicable to all levels.
Bring back old version (by JAB329 on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 18:27:00)
I just, liked the old Scrabble better. You can keep the new one, but can we at least have a choice? There was just no problems until you decided to "fix" things.... If it ain't broke don't fix it
SCRABBLE Review from 451th to 500th
:( (by Cassie is my name on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 15:23:00)
Toutes fois j'ouvre le jeux, il ferme quelque secondes plus tard. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi. Mais, quand j'ai joué sur l'iPod de ma sœur, c'était amusant.
Love It! (by JerleneF on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 12:42:00)
Love this game! My only gripe is having to keep signing in to the Game Center.
IRKED (by jpcos on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 11:59:00)
Having to log in, even in the midst of play, is driving me crazy. I can't understand how I get logged out even while I'm playing.
The best! (by Maytal1980 on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 09:58:00)
This is my favorite app. Period. Get the upgrade for a couple dollars; it's completely worth it. Then play, play, play! Maybe you'll play against me. Wouldn't that be a blast?
Logout Bug & Excessive Notifications (by Sir Brrr on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 06:28:00)
The best of its kind, BUT keeps logging out of Origin which is a HUGE hassle and also sends too many spammy notifications to play faster or other players. No excuses EA just fix it!
Scrabble (by GooseBlack on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 05:52:00)
Excellent I use it every day
Good game though computer 'cheats' (by DelawareChin on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 04:26:00)
The game is solid and i play the computer a lot BUT some of the words though 'legal ' are so obscure it spoils the game. I wish there was a way to edit the dictionary or customize it. Don't like how tiles are automatically returned to tray. Glad to see recall function was fixed.
Aggravated (by Aggravated 22 on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 02:03:00)
Get kicked out of origin login every other day! If I have to login once more I might just delete the app....
Love it! (by dywl on Tue, 24 Dec 2013 01:48:00)
Cept surprising that some well used words are not acceptable!
Word games keep the brain young. (by laurel tobin on Mon, 23 Dec 2013 22:37:00)
Scrabble was always my favorite! Yes, thank God no more auto recall, that was a pain.
Totally broken and dangerous (by Ghfvhut on Mon, 23 Dec 2013 11:29:00)
I used to use this with link through facebook. After taking a break for a few months, the app is totally broken. I spent 90 minutes trying to get it to connect *any way*. Trying through facebook entered a loop where the app would restart, open FB, then restart. Opening through Origin caused game center to open, but GC wouldn't accept my Apple ID (I checked it). Origin wouldn't accept my pw, and amazingly the reset password url doesn't work on iOS. Come on. Then when that PW got resolved, I was notified that my contacts list was being scanned. Whoa, I didn't authorize that! Then I played for 20 minutes with a stranger (yes all that and I could only get 'guest' games, though I wasn't allowed to play without logging in). Then I got a call and my caller ID failed. When I checked, ALL OF MY CONTACTS HAD BEEN ERASED. Yep, one app open (scrabble) that 'scanned' my contacts and they are all gone. Thank you EA, I want my money back.
Great game! (by MNSain on Mon, 23 Dec 2013 09:36:00)
Most of the crashes have been fixed, but Origin keeps logging me out. They still haven't fixed that problem, so they lose a star.
Bring back local network play!! (by Mousygirl on Sun, 22 Dec 2013 23:09:00)
"Updated" the app only to lose the function I use most!
Great (by ((d(-_-)b)) on Sun, 22 Dec 2013 19:48:00)
Works fine on iPhone 5. Classic game. Just as fun in the mobile version. Suggestion: add screenshot alert like in Snapchat. This would at least alert you to players using cheat apps.
Logs me out every 2 mins rubbish (by Markp17 on Sun, 22 Dec 2013 16:43:00)
Zero support or fixes going on twitter about this to spread the word about this awful app company had enough of this terrible app writing and issues Continually logging me out of origin Loses internet connection !! Network errors !! This app is rubbish you guys don't deserve to claim to be app writers If NSA can spy on the world I am sure you guys can get scrabble not to log me out every few mins You probably don't read reviews but you might if people vote with their wallets !!! Total crap
NOT good (by deeroob on Sun, 22 Dec 2013 16:40:00)
doesn't even load reliably. embarrassing that the two guys who wrote lexulous can do a better job than a whole company.
When it works... (by Alanakate on Sun, 22 Dec 2013 16:31:00)
When it works, it works very very well, but when it does not it is horrid. With the latest update, it freezes not long after I open the app--After "Hello, <username>, and "Updating..." The only game listed is one local game. The three games I'm playing with friends are nowhere. I click on "Login" for Facebook, but it's hung, and won't do anything. No network errors, no other clues. It's just locked up. I've tried restarting the app, restarting the phone, deleting and reinstalling the app to no effect. The music plays and nothing else works. Later: if after opening the app I very quickly click on Stats, I discover that the app is trying to retrieve my profile/stats, cannot do so for some reason, and cannot proceed. This is what we call a show stopper. FIX IT, PLEASE!! When the app does work, however, it's great, works slick. I can't wait until it does so again. Because the developers will fix this, right? You WILL fix it? Because I paid for this app, and now it does not function AT ALL. I can't even complain about the incessant need to log in, because I can no longer play.
Do not buy! (by Bbbbbbzzzzz on Sun, 22 Dec 2013 15:59:00)
I enjoyed this app for a long time, but the recent "update" made it unplayable. Do not waste your money until/unless they bring back the previous version.
Cool (by Zumbakim on Sun, 22 Dec 2013 13:24:00)
I love scrabble. I can play while I wait somewhere and the teacher shows me scrabble vocabulary I didn't know .
scrabble (by Dbernicer on Wed, 18 Dec 2013 21:17:00)
Very addictive! I don't play any thing else. This version is fun and easy
Buggy and incredibly annoying (by NY Admitted Attorney on Wed, 18 Dec 2013 20:54:00)
The constant need to login, and re-login, and re-login, and re-login makes this one of the most annoying apps. After YEARS with this problem and countless updates, it is mind-boggling that the makers are unable to find a programmer capable of fixing this most basic issue.
This version is horrible!!! (by Unhappy Boggle player on Wed, 18 Dec 2013 16:24:00)
We've been shut out of our game! Why do you have to sign in for every word you put in??? You ruined a perfectly good game!!!
Great scrabble (by Trevor Swanson on Wed, 18 Dec 2013 15:56:00)
I truly enjoy this version of scrabble and find the challenge level just right. Sometimes though the computer really plays some "out there" words.
Latest update is terrible. Switching to Words with Friends (by cbperry on Wed, 18 Dec 2013 11:38:00)
Good game but having to constantly login to Origins before each move is very annoying.
Solid (by Wchitt on Wed, 18 Dec 2013 03:02:00)
My favorite game!!!!!
Scrabble lovers (by CherieAmes on Wed, 18 Dec 2013 01:28:00)
This app is flexible for one to play by yourself or one or more friends . An App Store staple for all Scrabble lovers. It does seem funny that number next to my app Logo. No message or update is attached.
Addictive (by gadget novice on Tue, 17 Dec 2013 22:55:00)
Great fun, and learn bizarre new words from "teacher". Great way to make time pass when you are home sick.
Lacking (by Ojaski on Tue, 17 Dec 2013 13:56:00)
I enjoy scrabble, but why can't I communicate with other players? I don't want to login to origin or Facebook. My husband has a chess game and he's able to communicate with other players. After paying big bucks for this game I would like to communicate with players. A year ago I had this app and was able to text with other players. Why is there now a restriction? Please remove it. Marian
It's designed to improve your game (by Expeditus on Tue, 17 Dec 2013 10:23:00)
Strange. I have never had glitches. I love that it's more like traditional game and there are great features, like the coach and dictionary, its helped to improve my game. And it's not like WWF that is now trying to grub extra money with added features. Don't mind paying more once but not after so many uses. And this app doesn't over inflate your score. You will be a better player after using this app.
Keeps logging me out (by Traveling Again on Tue, 17 Dec 2013 04:25:00)
Auto login almost never works. The app can't seem to remember who I am and consistently needs me to re-login.
Great game (by Trance Aegis 32 on Tue, 17 Dec 2013 01:51:00)
Although it needs an expanded dictionary option because on occasion it does refuse legitimate words.
Finally an update that wirks (by Genkigary on Mon, 16 Dec 2013 15:50:00)
Now i can enjoy Scrabble again!

Really?! (by Anrev on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 21:33:00)
It should not take 30 minutes per phone for set up to play. Completely ridiculous.
Constantly logging in (by JjjGgg99 on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 21:01:00)
Why have all the complaints for months about having to constantly log in being ignored? Please listen to your customers! Having to log in several times a day makes it a real pain to play..
Love it!! (by Bodacious Bev on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 19:37:00)

My favorite game (by Chopzilla! on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 12:12:00)
I play almost every morning.
FIX THE AUTO-LOGIN!!! (by Ambiverbal on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 09:31:00)
The app forces me to renter my user email and password from one to five times PER DAY! This issue has remained unresolved or MADE WORSE through multiple updates. (And yes, I have deleted & reinstalled it multiple times.) The Game Center can remember me for more than 10 minutes. So I fail to comprehend why the Scrabble app, uniquely among the 200 on my iPhone, cannot fix this infernal bug.
It's fun (by Tseworks4me on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 08:15:00)
It's fun playing solo and I like learning from the teacher
Happily addicted. (by Ms. Lauren on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 03:48:00)
Love Scrabble and usually love the app. Sometimes it stops working and has no connectivity (when everything else on my phone indicates a good connection) but other than that occasional annoyance I enjoy it -and use it daily.
Love it!! (by Honeyboo311 on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 02:34:00)
Love this game! It's fun, and I'm learning at the same time!
Wonderful mental exercise (by Cookie Hall on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 01:45:00)
Keeps me on my toes!! Great....
Great Fun (by Investotom on Sun, 15 Dec 2013 00:15:00)
Wonderfully challenging game. Only problem is connection/server problems resulting in network errors which kick you out of a game or causing the user to resign in repeatedly. If the programmers could fix that problem it would be perfect!!!
App spams too much (by Good Ol Tux on Sat, 14 Dec 2013 15:24:00)
One of the recent upgrades turned this game into a spamming machine. It keeps asking me to choose friends to play with and I get an alert for it everyday. I'm getting ready to uninstall it.
Scrabble (by FearBlackBeard on Sat, 14 Dec 2013 13:42:00)
Every time they update this app it gets worse and worse. WE DO NOT WANT TO PLAY GUESTS!!! Make people sign in. I regret buying the app because they just cannot get it right. Seriously considering Words with Friends at this point. Get it together.
Great but (by DaddyEeee on Sat, 14 Dec 2013 12:24:00)
Love it but don't understand why there isn't fb connect and why it requires re login all the time?!?!
Disappointed (by 12345Joy on Sat, 14 Dec 2013 10:58:00)
The last version was much better than this version. There is no way to put in a specific person I wish to play with unless they're a Friend. I had been playing for months with the same person who was not a Facebook friend and now have no way to reconnect!! I had not even seen the information about saving games in progress until after it was too late! I lost 9 games and people I loved playing with. Also gone is the"Rematch" button which I used almost every time. A poor improvement. Had I know I would not have paid for it.

addicting. just don't like players with no profiles.
Great app with two minor annoyances (by Stormcatcher on Fri, 13 Dec 2013 19:15:00)
Other than these things, I think this is a great app: 1. The push notifications that tell me to start a new game against a random opponent annoy me. I think someone is texting me, turn on my cell phone, and it's a push notification from Scrabble telling me to start a new game against a random opponent. I have no desire to play online. Is there a way to turn these notifications off? If there is, I have been unable to find it. 2. I would like a one-player option with no computer opponent. In other words, one player gets all 100 tiles. After 8/16/2012, I have not been able to play this way. I've had to choose pass and play and be both players on this app.
Excellent (by Old Davey on Fri, 13 Dec 2013 17:07:00)
Was a bit klunky until a few updates ago. Now it is works flawlessly. The Teacher really sharpens the brain. That's the real advantage of Scrabble over WWF.
I liked the old game version better (by merrimacga on Fri, 13 Dec 2013 06:39:00)
What happened to the moves list? I enjoy some of the improvements, like the new chat function, new stats and the teacher, but not at the expense of the moves list. Also, I miss the choice of dictionaries, some of the game options are missing, the profile picture doesn't work and I keep having to log back in to Origin. Sometimes Origin won't accept my password and I have to reset it, which is clunky and annoying as all hell. The swipe features are also clunky and irritating as is the alternative to the menu for switching between games. Sure the new interface is colorful and seems more user friendly but it's just a candy coating that attempts to hide and distract from the cons of the so called improvements. The old interface was by no means perfect but honestly I miss it and would rather have it back.
Thanks for network error fixes a while ago. (by DonnaSB on Fri, 13 Dec 2013 02:38:00)
Basic features work. A few quirky things seem to come and go throughout years of updates. Glad you removed the recently implemented auto recall feature when a word isn't a word. One thing that's annoying is the total point value stays on the word and covers up the tile values (iPhone) - sometimes other tile letters so you can't see the letter/value. Sometimes badge shows it's my turn but it's not. Last major UI change went too cartoony and type face is too small. Gotten used to it, though. Wouk like to see the word-look up (iPhone) feature made bigger, as in the area where you type the word. Lots of real estate there to use.
Definitions needed (by WPT Fry on Fri, 13 Dec 2013 01:12:00)
In addition to checking if words are valid with the dictionary, why not include a definition lookup feature like in your Boggle game? That would increase the education value of the app by helping teach what all those obscure words are, especially those you get when playing against the computer.
Run in background? (by Jp notes on Thu, 12 Dec 2013 23:41:00)
My only complaint is that it doesn't run in the background. If I could quickly switch between another task and Scrabble when an opponent (finally) plays, the game would be far more enjoyable.
Good app, needs to improve login feature (by MisterMike2143 on Thu, 12 Dec 2013 22:17:00)
I really enjoy playing scrabble, but the one thin holding me back from a five star review is the issues with logging in. Even though there is a "remember me" feature to "auto-login," I frequently have to re enter my details.
Love it (by 4am riser on Thu, 12 Dec 2013 21:01:00)
I love this app. Whether in this app or in a companion app, please make 3-letter word lists and lists that allows one to put in parts of words and the possible words that include those parts.
None (by Tropical Sage on Thu, 12 Dec 2013 10:50:00)
Love, love, love this game! & I did enjoy the recall feature...

I play it all the time This might prevent me from Alzheimer's or dementia
Long log-in times (by kevin_n_ on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 13:17:00)
Overall, I like this game. But, EVERY time I open it, it takes about 20 seconds to load the game list. Sometimes, it doesn’t load my account at all and I have to log in again. It’s very frustrating.
Love it (by Jenzdimom on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 12:55:00)
Play everyday. Updates and enhancements suit me well.
Scrabble (by Crusin4words on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 12:09:00)
Getting better. It doesn't make me log in as much now and the screen stays open if your checking another screen.
Loved it until it crashed 2 days ago. I lost my scores, my games I was on the middle of. (by Dylansyaya on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 09:32:00)
I love the game! There Are some issues though: I shouldn't have to log in so frequently. Sometimes I have to several times in a day! When someone has no activity for 2-3 or more days, I should be able to nudge them. It doesn't always work. I have friends that want to play, but cannot seem to unless I log into Facebook which then changes my identification to my origin friends. They cannot seem to play through origin. What jus that about. Several times I am unable to play because the network is down or it freezes! Please fix these issues. I still love the game!!!! I am addicted!
Scrabble (by scrabbleguy878 on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 02:37:00)
A MAJOR problem which remains UNFIXED is with ORIGIN. Continues to knock you out of the game and you must re-sign in even though you didn't log out. Also, when a game is completed and your opponent presses REMATCH, in order to get to the new rematch game, you have to re-sign in. Please fix this. The ORIGINS server or operating system has flaws.
Great game. I'm glad to have. (by DJS73 on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 01:21:00)
It's a great game to pass time and keep up vocab. I like. ;-) thanks Scabble.
Slow (by Missmothman on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 00:56:00)
Extremely slow after the most recent update!!
Excellent functionality and interface (by jjspelman on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 00:20:00)
Just a great game from top to bottom. The graphics are excellent and the game is very stable. Recommend it highly for Scrabble enthusiasts!
Paid version buggy ! (by Zmanster4s on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 23:59:00)
EA doesn't care about all the buggy issues that have been going one for months. I will Never purchase another EA game again! Too many to list here.
Not fun anymore (by Trader65353 on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 22:01:00)
My scrabble app used to provide me a few relaxing moments each day. I logged in when I paid for the app and I stayed logged in. Now, I have to log in at least once per day, sometimes more. I have the option of logging in with Facebook and allowing Scrabble access to all of my Facebook information. No thanks! I'll just delete the app. Knowing that you just want access to my personal info and are hoping to wear me down by having me log in twice a day, takes all of the fun out of playing.
Like it in general (by Vdru on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 21:05:00)
Very good except the amount you have to keep logging back on
Great game. (by Pawpaw Dave on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 18:46:00)
This is my favorite word game. I can play it whenever I want, and pause games as needed.

Pretty Good (by Kcksave72 on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 03:53:00)
App is pretty good. Most frustrating thing for me is constantly being signed out. I get signed out more often than I do my bank account or other more secure things. Game wise, it's very enjoyable

the new update is awesome!
Best game in the store (by Lockjaw43 on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 02:50:00)
After a few initial issues they have figured everything out. If you are playing WWF instead of this you are wasting your time.

A great game. Keeps me alert. The Recently corrected "forced forfeit" feature finally cleared out 21 old games that were limiting my game.
1 star (by Frank, Jr. on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 02:00:00)
This is a 1 star review for having pushed for a review. Also, the Origin network connection is horrible. Some days, I have had to log in 6-9 times.
Don't do it! (by Lainsf on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 01:34:00)
I like the old version much better! Wish i didn't update.
Always Fun! (by CaJoy on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 20:51:00)
What a great game! I play daily and never tire of it. Love it most playing opposite the computer. I get a little bugged when some commonly used words are not in its dictionary (e.g., "bling") or when the computer uses or best word selects some word totally unknown to me. But, it's still very entertaining and great fun!
Wow!!! (by Doctor ecwan on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 20:51:00)
Absolutely love the game. have played it all my life. I just wish you could delete completed games and unfinished games after a couple of days. Some people just stop playing if they are losing early. 8.5 out of 10.
Fun (by LizzAb on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 19:51:00)
Good for your brain. Play all the time
Terrific (by Guild Slim Jim on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 18:57:00)
Love it and usually have 6 games going. I like playing people logged in rather than guests so we can chat. I've played people all over the world. The only thing I don't like, and there is nothing EA can do, is penalize cheats, like those who have played 400 games and have 300 bingos. Get real!
EA is forcing me to upgrade. No thanks. (by genie10 on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 17:20:00)
I've been playing EA Scrabble on my iPhone for years. A couple of years ago, I upgraded to a new version and lost my rating (>1800). It reverted back to 1200. My rating is now >1800. Now they are forcing me to upgrade again if I want to play. They won't let me play unless I upgrade. A very poor user experience! No thanks, Electronic Arts.
It's Scrabble... (by Jeannedb on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 16:53:00)
What else can you say? However, the game "teacher" will help you improve your game.
Scrabble (by Headbonz on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 14:26:00)
Truly addictive. Wish the teacher option could be toggled off & on. Most times, I don't want the help but sometimes, I'd like to see what my other options could have been. Thanks for helping me waste scads of time while still engaging my brain!
this wasnt listed in the upgrade changes (by Gaa1210 on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 13:30:00)
Even worse is I can't force forfeit, I have more than 6 unfinished games hanging.
Hate the newest update (by Larry EInzig on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 11:12:00)
The forced forfeit doesn't appear to be working because more than 1 day goes by after the FF and the games are still there. Also I HATE the fact that I'm now forced to play opponents at my level. It takes virtually all of the fun of the game and makes it far more stressful.
Fun, Fun, Fun! (by Ravenhood of Ravenwod on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 08:02:00)
I've always loved this game; but, now I can play with all my friends at leisure.
Please fix some things (by Cwr1091 on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 04:21:00)
My son can no longer play on his original iPhone with ios3. Forced to update! Should be backward compatible. With that, forced forfeit went away too. Please move the slide to chat further up from the letters. Trying to rearrange letters often brings up chat. So annoying. Overall, like the game and fun to play.
SCRABBLE Review from 551th to 600th
Almost perfect (by Muzzie.me on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 03:00:00)
I play a lot because I truly enjoy this game over others but it is frustrating being logged out so often. However, I disagree with other player comments regarding this issue as I found it equally frustrating before the update. I would appreciate a more current or urban vocabulary as sometimes words not accepted are commonly used in everyday life.
Player (by Mb21798 on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 02:50:00)
Can't get enough!
REALLY????!!!!! (by Rockerkb on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 02:47:00)
Why is it so hard for this app to get it right. It was working fine for awhile till my games didn't go away. I have games 4 days old n counting!!! Plz fix! I love scrabble too much :(
I WANT THE OLD AP BACK!!! (by Campfiar on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 02:09:00)
There are too many things I DO NOT LIKE... Thinking of not playing anymore... Wanting to give it a week to see if I can get used to it. So far I AM NOT.
I love it! (by Stewart204 on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 00:04:00)
My favorite word game now that they've fixed the big flaws!
Better (by Dc10aean on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 23:24:00)
I suffered thru the poor upgrade, this version is much better. Thanks for dropping the auto recall. Only one problem now, forced forfeit isn't working. Glad I hung in there thru the rough patch. I use it daily, have at least 4 to 6 games running all the time. Thank you.
Sooooo unhappy (by WordOO on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 20:14:00)
Get kicked off Origin about every 10 plays or so. So tired of logging back in over and over. I feel no one listens either. Love love Scrabble. Hate hate the app.
Glitch with the app (by 21aleshow on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 19:05:00)
No sure what is going on with the app but the force forfeit feat isn't working correctly...I have game that opponents haven't played in 5 days and I'm unable to force that win...normally I could have that option within 24hours ....smh
Getting better (by PapaBear301 on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 17:02:00)
Mostly a good experience…One glitch: I often get an alert even though no opponent has made a play.
Horribly Written Software buggy & crash prone (by Fogbert on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 16:37:00)
About the worst piece of software I have ever purchased from the App store. Each new release seems to introduce new bugs, freezes and crashes. Must have been written by Dilbert's Elbonians. JUNK
Awesome game (by Cheezhead76 on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 16:06:00)
Love playing and all the upgrades, keep it coming!!!
scrabble (by Knitemb on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 15:53:00)
I dislike the new version! It is cumbersome and unnecessarily slow to check in with friends with whom you are playing. I do not think it should be necessary to put in my email address and password almost every time I play. Further,the silly statements of the teacher are unnecessary; just give the better word. I still enjoy the faces the teacher makes though. The previous version was sharp and to the point!
Constantly getting logged out... (by Dawanna White on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 15:32:00)
I am constantly getting logged out!! After every play...it's so frustrating!!!! Please fix it!!!!!
Love this app! (by Charsaw on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 13:56:00)
I love this app because I can play against the computer and choose the skill level. Also, the teacher feature helps me learn if there was a better word I should have played. The teacher usually agrees with my word, which makes me feel good that I played the best possible word. If only I can convince my friends to play Scrabble, instead of Words With Friends.
Scrabble addict (by drgnqueen on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 13:15:00)
I love playing scrabble. Interacting with different people all over the world is awesome.. My only complete is I can no longer change my name. I liked changing it every so often. I still give it 5 stars because that is not a reason to effect the star rating.
Great App (by thistletlf on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 11:55:00)
I love Scrabble! Words With Friends is a lame reproduction.
Version 3.6.1 on iPhone not good (by Melliforte on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 11:39:00)
I was forced to upgrade to this version as the version I had (from early 2012) was no longer able to access the Scrabble server. I had avoided upgrading because I disliked the look of the new user interface. Aside from the unpleasant look of the board and tiles, this version has other serious problems that I never encountered previously. One is that the game makes me log in frequently, which is very annoying and seems like bad programming. Another big problem is there no longer any access to the list of moves in your game. But the biggest show stopper for me is the disappearance of the force forfeit button. Online Scrabble is absolutely unmanageable if you can't clear out the detritus of games abandoned by inconsiderate players. I will not start or join any more Scrabble games until the force forfeit button is restored. Thanks, EA, for helping me break my addiction!
New problem: anonymous opponents? (by NSG444 on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 10:50:00)
I am a Scrabble addict. The app is great overall, and they do continue to improve it. However, with the latest update, random opponents who are not logged in are now just identified as "guest", instead of the previous "guest1234" or other numerical identifier. There is no longer a way to identify one opponent over another, and rematches against these nameless opponents no longer work. Please fix this! When I find a good opponent, I like to play several games in a row against the same person, and that is no longer possible.
What gives? (by );0$ on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 10:21:00)
force forfeit option no longer working
Fun (by Alyx's on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 04:33:00)
I play nearly everyday and really enjoy it. I would give it a higher rating if it followed the official scrabble dictionary. This is seriously the best version of this game I have found for my iPad/iPhone.
Update: Constantly Have to Log In!! (by Jhdjhdjhd on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 03:02:00)
I've had scrabble app on my iPhone for a long time, play multiple games every day, was very happy until the update. Now I am constantly logging in over and over all day, incredibly annoying! Why are updates always worse than what they are replacing????
Screw up (by iJerald tm on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 02:49:00)
Wan and blue tooth play. Where did it go? What a screw up. The app was great, then good then a failure. Go back a release or two and leave things alone. Biggest screw up in this release: I want to launch then start playing, not have to circumvent all of the forced social networking sign on junk. When applications force that it irritates me to the point I never play the game....I just delete it. I guess I will go get Word with Friends.
Scrabble (by Dave850 on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 01:22:00)
Good app. Thanks for removing the auto tile recall - that was annoying and sometimes disconcerting.
Pnik928 (by Peg928 on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 01:14:00)
Like it a lot . Great to be able to play against several computers. Nice feature. Not a lot of ads which is great! Used to have some trouble with getting more than one turn at a time. Seems to be better now.
Great app, terrible network connectivity (by Kupsingh on Sun, 08 Dec 2013 00:49:00)
Very addictive and engaging app. Once you successfully authenticate into a network (Facebook or Origin), I can't think of very many limitations. Now for the bad: 1) Origin may be the single worst social gaming network in existence. Scrabble is such a simple gaming experience, yet it is incredible slow or impossible at times to authenticate with Origjn after launching the app. 2) I am required to reauthenticate into Origjn every few hours. Really??? What is this, a secure online banking app or a gaming app? Persist my credentials and perform auto login for at least for 24 hour. And seriously, can the capable folks at EA enhance the app to at least persist my username so I don't have to constantly re enter it in.
Crappy game! Still crappy! Seems to get worse with every update! (by hrs12345 on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 22:34:00)
Crashes constantly. Adds unwanted games and looses real games. Worse with every update. A lousy piece of work. They should pay you to play! Don't waste your time. Won't even let this review into the system. Dumb. With every update new problems arise. Now games that have long passed the force forfeit time continue to stay open and active. Just cluttering the page. Whoever runs this site needs serious help because they are totally incompetent. Constant annoyance for those who like to play.
Scrabble- please.. please change the game back to the way it was....AB (by AB Pool on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 22:33:00)
The music goes on and off and it won't disconnect....I turn off the volume and it comes back on by itself??? The computer uses words that aren't in any dictionary I own???? The Norm opponent is too easy... The Hard opponent is too tough??? I'd like to get a place where I can check the meanings of those words... I'm so sorry to tell you this... but you've updated backwards... I love playing scrabble, and when I saw it should be updated, I said ok... Since I put the update on yesterday... you have completely taken away the fun of playing scrabble... I'm confined to a bed, so it's been a savior for me... but the format and changes you put into your last update has really changed the game and not for the better... I called the apple store to find out if I could reverse the update, and they said, No... I really don't know what to do now but I'm pretty upset... If you need specifics as to what needs to be changed back to... Let me know.....Sorry... Andy B.. You don't read these anyway.... But I've written too many negative things about this App...every time I have a problem with my computer it's always... always when I'm playing Scrabble... Screen freezing... won't let me in to play... too many glitches to mention... but you don't read these anyway...So I'll stop responding to Rating this App!!!
Better, but still needs a few tweaks. (by Jmmurphysr on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 16:48:00)
My third review and the rating is unchanged. For some reason I still have to log 3 - 4 times a week, from my iPad, so that's the same. Hey Origin, you can do better. The letters look better on the iPad 2, so that's good. Other improvements are good albeit evolutionary. All in all a good game. Just a cautionary note to Origin: Words with Friends is getting better - watch out. My previous review is below, and the app has improved quite a bit, although the biggest problems came from changes which were poorly or not explained. After figuring out the changes, the app was manageable. The latest pain is having to sign in all the time. If I sign in on my PC I get signed off on my iPad and vice versa. Thanks Origin. Again, Origin can do better. EA ruined the look of what was a great user interface, and there's no way to get the legacy look back. Worse, the letters seem smaller and are blurry thanks to the new shadows. What's wrong with EA? EA can do better.
Love it on par with the Original! (by Discoverer on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 16:15:00)
I don't play via the social networks & don't have the connection problems others seem to have. Fantastic single-player mode has been added.
Nice! (by Mercury2wo on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 15:54:00)
Well designed and executed. Love the ability to play with random opponents in asynchronous mode. Doesn't have Game Center Integration, does it?
Great App (by Yesgroup on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 14:38:00)
Fun way to learn new words
Scrabble (by Markie-Boy on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 14:00:00)
When the app is working properly, it is a very well done app, and a whole lot of fun. However, the forced forfeit feature is not working now, so when your opponent does not want to lose, he simply quits playing. All your skill, effort, and time employed to win the game are wasted; very frustrating! Also, I am constantly having to log back in to Origin; the auto login feature does not work properly. Please get these functions fixed, especially the forced forfeit!! Otherwise, besides that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?
What's with the log in? (by Jakescake on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 13:18:00)
I like to take a 5 min break and look at my board , now I have to log into Origins each time. Frankly it's tedious and I'll not be playing anymore untill that changes
Horrible update (by UniquelyApril on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 13:04:00)
I used to love this game. But the "update" made it cheesy and slow. You can no longer toggle the teacher on and off at will, bluetooth is gone, it looks cheap, it lags and very slow, and so many more flaws. After I saw the update on another persons device I refused to update mine, but unfortunately my iPod decided to update all my apps last night. DELETED. and I'm so sad to do so.
Getting better (by Kelechi K on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 11:46:00)
I appreciate that I don't have to log on every time I have to play like in previous versions. It would be even better if I'm automatically logged on or if my login ID is pre populated since I'm the only user of the phone
Play it every day (by thebardteacher on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 11:11:00)
I play this game when I have a spare moment. I played both online, with my students, and against the computer. They are very responsive to requests by the user. Excellent app!
Gamer (by Sprout6319 on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 11:05:00)
Great game. Love scrabble
Terrible GUI, massively buggy (by mcslain1970 on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 00:45:00)
Constant online disconnects, terrible GUI, buggy game play. You can't even report bugs to the developers now. EA makes you go through a bunch of hoops on a web page that only go to prove this company has terrible design everywhere. I love Scrabble. I loathe this EA iPhone app. Inexcusably and inexplicably bad.
Smooth (by Scrablab on Sat, 07 Dec 2013 00:01:00)
My favorite tile game. A bit of a battery hog but game play is far better than some famous knockoffs.
Recommend (by Lips67 on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 22:35:00)
Still would like definitions! Otherwise, I love it! The update has made it less likely to freeze up, which was a problem previously.
Same problem (by samsbun on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 22:02:00)
I really like the update, especially where you can leave a game without penalty. An old problem cane back, force forfeit isn't working. I have a person hanging in now for 2+ days after forced forfeit. I wish there was a way to keep players from using tools for cheating.
Getting error message for phone connection (by Catwoman191919 on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 21:00:00)
I can't connect to origin, getting network error box constantly on my iPhone. Can't find answers on site. Can anyone help???
Repeated log ins killin the joy (by Sophie&&&& on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 20:30:00)
What is the point to log every time you want to play? This is destroying a game I love. Either fix it or its by by, don't have time to log in over and over, please please bring back old app
Problems (by Cjdrice on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 19:32:00)
I am having a hard time even getting on. Constantly asking me to sign in on fb or origin.. Won't update. I have friends that won't play with me anymore because of these issues.... They have too !
Good game (by JGS1955 on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 18:04:00)
My favorite game. However, having first player random would be nice and being able to disable that friend thing as well.
Super! (by janpz on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 18:01:00)
Great game play. No more auto recall of tiles! Thanks! :) My only gripe is having to log on again for no apparent reason. That's the only thing holding me from giving 5-stars.
Good stuff (by Kappycone on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 17:54:00)
I'm liking it! I do without the bothersome teacher mode on, but otherwise it's a very good version of the game.
Scrabble app ruined (by Bbbbbbzzzzz on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 16:23:00)
I enjoyed playing scrabble with this app for a long time, but today I was FORCED to "upgrade" to an unplayable version. With great sadness I just deleted the app from my iPhone. This company shows nothing but contempt for its paying customers.
Love Scrabble but... (by brooklyn all day on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 16:06:00)
I miss the option of playing via wi-fi.
Scrabble (by Rekabs on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 14:42:00)
The game frequently crashes. Not stable. I cannot understand why this app has to run through Game Center/Origin. What a pain! I have to log in multiple times and the log in screen will not retain my username or password. Rekey, Rekey, Rekey, into my itty bitty key pad just to play. Archaic. Ugh.
SCRABBLE Review from 601th to 650th
Game (by Les Crabbe on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 13:14:00)
This new update is complete crap, the graphics are horrible and it just plain doesn't work. Bring back the old game.
Getting better each time (by NewMusicVeteran on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 12:31:00)
Still has a few glitches as others have mentioned, but it's still a great game and app. Have been playing it since my iPhone 3s. Keep up the good work!
Frustrated (by BillyEagle 21 on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 12:26:00)
It's frustrating to be required to sign in so frequently.
Great, traditional, word game (by Blueshorts801 on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 12:23:00)
I always loved playing Scrabble. I enjoy the other big word game app too. But it's nice to be able to play with the traditional rules. It took a while to get used to again, but now I love it!
New Version is Awful (by Old gamester on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 10:45:00)
You took a great clean game and made it so much worse. Here are some of the major reasons: 1. Origin login times out. In the old version, all I had to do was tap the app anytime, and I was in. 2. The game doesn't always recognize when you're logged out, so now it crashes (There's an upgrade!) Now for some minor annoying "upgrades": 1. The menu screen became bloated. There used to be a nice clean green/orange list where you could see 7 or 8 open games and all the menu links without scrolling. Now each game takes the whole width of the screen (and what's with the "muscle man"?) 2. There used to be a "next" button available before you made your move. When I have several open games I used to have the option to cycle through them before playing. Now I have to menu up and down (remembering each) to do that. 3. The "teacher" only has 1 face now. The old game ranged from the big smile to the "duh" face. Now I have to tap the teacher every time to check. 4. Do I really need a popup to tell me I just scored a Bingo? 5. Maybe I'm a narcissist, but I liked having my screen name on top, rather than "You" The one thing that is actually better is the in-rack tile shifting. The old one was hard to use, especially on the ends, but I like how the new one animates the move first, so you can just drop it where you want it. That one enhancement aside, I would revert to the old version in a hot minute. I love Scrabble, but I really hate having to use this new version. If anybody actually reads this, please HELP! Thanks.
So cool (by Elimanon on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 10:28:00)
I love Scrabble! And this app is awesome!
Having Fun (by Bikwit on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 01:37:00)
I really love playing this game.
scrabble fun (by freddie_tane on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 01:23:00)
game is fun. works great. strange dictionaries allow too many questionable non-words. maybe should have a challenge feature linked to OED.
AWFUL! (by coolelle on Fri, 06 Dec 2013 00:33:00)
I've never had an update FORCED on me before. But I understand why they HAVE to force it. The new version is TERRIBLE! It's harder to read, harder to play, you have to log in OVER and OVER again. EVERYTHING about the game is WORSE! Why couldn't I just keep the OLD version that I PAID FOR! I avoided the update for months because I heard how bad it was. Electronic "Arts" finally forced all of us die-hard fans of the old version to update to the new version. What a GYP! I bought a good version -- why can't I keep it?!?! If Toyota "updates" the Camry, they can't force me to update the car I PAID for. Why should Electronic Arts be allowed to FORCE me to give up the app I love and move to an inferior version? DON'T buy it, and don't buy anything from this company. They'll only "upgrade" it later and destroy your fun.
Still not happy! (by Another Dissatisfied Player on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 23:20:00)
I liked the old version with the wooden tiles. It was much easier on the eyes and had a friendlier feel to it. This board is too bright and obnoxious looking. The high contrast is hard on the eyes. And the type is smaller on the tiles. Wish you would go back to the friendlier version.
iPod touch no longer can play with FB friends. (by Estudia on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 23:07:00)
I can no longer connect to Facebook with my iPod touch. I get a message saying that I already am authorized to connect to Facebook but nothing happens. Your last five updates did not correct this problem. I can connect to FB I just can't play Scrabble on my iPod.
great game (by ninja-ned on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 22:33:00)
The latest updates make this game next to perfect.
Better than the board game (by BigTodd on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 22:09:00)
Same setup Can't lose the tiles Automatic scoring to show you live word values
Great game (by Ankhenaten91 on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 21:27:00)
Very entertaining and well done. No complaints here.
So far I rate this as 3 star. (by Egeeb on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 19:24:00)
The 'teacher' advises use of a word that when connected to another word makes the word it was connected too not a word. How can you challenge the teacher? Besides the advise was to show us what word would have given higher points.
I like it (by Quick tripper on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 13:59:00)
What goes? Guests are now only identified as "Guest" - no unique identifying number? What's that all about? I would like to see a feature that would indicate on my home screen when it's "my turn" like when I have a new email or a voicemail.
Crashing constantly (by Cup4drw on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 03:26:00)
I can't get it to stay up for more than a minute after the latest update
Good fun with friends old and new (by Vickibboston on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 02:57:00)
App is good for casual games between friends.
Just bad (by Pedrito37 on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 02:47:00)
I had the original ap which had the teacher. I liked it but it was kinda slow. A year ago, I upgraded and you removed the teacher, so I reverted. Now you guys forced me to upgrade. Now it's painfully feriquin sssssssssssssssslowwwwwwwwwwwww. I want my ap back, or I'll just quit.
Scrabble (by Chloemacybear3 on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 01:38:00)
I like that you went back to not having the tiles auto-yanked. Everything else is just dandy!
Scrabble (by Beth Lee on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 01:03:00)
Love my scrabble on iPhone, glad you removed the auto tile recall. However, I have lost my Scrabble on my iPad. Have tried deleting and reloading to no avail. Title page comes up then it crashes!!! ANY HELP OUT THERE???
Scrabble (by peligrosa on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 00:10:00)
There are a lot of great games out there to play, but Scrabble is the best by far. I just can't deal with this teacher, and not being able to turn it off. Wow Scrabble lets the minds eye open to a reflection that's deeper then the minds, you know the rest.
Terrible! (by Brian Dean on Thu, 05 Dec 2013 00:07:00)
I despise being forced to upgrade in order to play this game that I paid for. It's slow. It crashes unless it's the only app running. This is why I went back to the old version after trying 3.0 a while back. Argh. Thumbs down, head shake.
Great game! (by Chemo Best on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 23:59:00)
This game is awesome! I love the changes they made to it including listening to user feedback. The game is smoother than before with less errors. Playing with friends or by yourself is always fun! I'm glad they got rid of the auto recall feature!
Sign in 6x a day? (by JB_Pgh on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 22:31:00)
I love the game but I have to sign back in constantly. Auto sign-in doesn't work. It's a huge PITA.
Still hate look and interface... (by THX1965 on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 19:02:00)
With iOS 7 Scrabble's terrible user interface looks even more infantile and badly designed than ever. Fake glossy 3D buttons are hard to read on an iPhone - the same goes for the fake 3D board - it's too small. The list of games on the other hand comes in huge oversized banners... Bad design choices. I'd love to have the option of switching to a simpler, cleaner app design. I am tired of being reminded of preschool when playing my favorite game.
Sucktacular, or Craptastic? (by Love the NFL, hate the DirecTV on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 16:16:00)
Scrabble, as a game, is as solid as ever. A long time ago, Scrabble was one of the best apps available. This app, unfortunately, has been an unmitigated distaster since the update to version 3.x. I see at minimum 3-5 crashes per day. The animations are choppy and ugly. The nudge and force-forfeit commands are spotty at best. Notifications are almost always wrong, both under- and over-reporting. Pop-ups slow down the play. Logins are painfully slow when they work...the program is CONSTANTLY logging me out. And for whatever reason it can't even remember my email address, maiking the sign-ins even more tedious. I'm sure Origin is good for something, but I sure haven't found it yet. And the cherry on top is the never-ending Facebook pandering. It might be hard to believe but there are people who don't use FB. I could do without those stupid blue f's being shoved in my face all the time. At this point, it's impossible to recommend this app. I can only hope that at some point, Hasbro will step in to protect their IP. Everyone at EA involved with this app should be fired.
Best game ever! (by Kandie Cayne on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 16:06:00)
Love my Scrabble every day!
Problem with force forfeit (by AkimboCat on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 15:58:00)
There are games in my queue that have gone past the 24 hour force forfeit deadline by 8 or more hours and the games have not ended in my favor yet. Please review and repair prob.
Better than 'Words with friends'- totally agree there should be separate games for 'cheaters'! (by Flash's Mom on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 15:38:00)
Board set up like usual Scrabble. Can be played solo against the computer.
Getting better! (by MonroG on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 14:17:00)
It's getting better! It's a lot better, now add a little color.
Scrabalicious (by Larry Lauber on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 13:46:00)
My all time favorite game.
Awful (by LWRW112 on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 12:55:00)
Awful update. Waited as long as I could without updating until EA closed me out of play. What were the developers thinking....or not. Pure Drek.
Genius (by SOFLO-SMG on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 12:28:00)
5 stars. Love it and auto recall GONE!! lol
Terrible! (by Dave1038 on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 12:02:00)
I hate this update. Looks and plays like Candyland. I was forced to update Going back to old version if I can.
F/a (by Hworker1 on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 10:53:00)
I want the classic scrabble back. I lost all my games when you changed the format. I am so upset about the new format. You ruined the game for me.
Enjoy, but... (by PhredG on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 08:28:00)
We enjoy playing Scrabble at home. It is good for a quick play or a long game. I would just second the suggestion for LAN play (but not rate it so low).
BUG, Disappointing (by ammbooth on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 04:25:00)
When playing game & selecting shuffle, exchange appears tried to cancel, app froze. Restarting app caused a skipped turn. REQUEST FIXING PROBLEM! 12/3/2013: improvements made. Another request to fix app freezing & operating slower at times.
Warning - It's addictive! (by Mt P Girl on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 02:57:00)
I love this app. Glad automatic recall is gone - it drove me crazy.
Goodbye scrabble (by gregd6three on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 02:46:00)
I've been playing for years on my ipod touch, but my ipod is old and the latest ios it supports is 4.2.1. The newest update only works with 5 or later and the previous version is suddenly inoperable. So I'm screwed unless I pony up for new hardware.
I miss the old Scrabble (by KrayzieFemale on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 02:28:00)
It just seems to get worse with every update. Constant lagging, not refreshing and continually logging out are just a few issues I have. I also really miss the old look as well, with the wooden tiles and smoother playing. After bearing through several updates over the last few years, the last update finally made me give up trying to play my all-time favorite board game.
Atrocious UI (by Rocka84 on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 01:56:00)
The new UI is simply awful. It looks like a cartoon. I've been avoiding it as long as possible, but EA has now locked out logins on the old version, so I'm stuck. If you can still use the old UI, do not upgrade! You'll regret it.
Scrabble (by Jeannette2209 on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 00:45:00)
Love the game! But has some issues that need repairing. That its not working 100%.
It a good one! (by Lond289 on Wed, 04 Dec 2013 00:23:00)
I feel it is a great game. It makes you think, which a lot of don't do any more, think! Really enjoyable, especially against the computer.
Love it BUT ... (by Desnie52 on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 23:43:00)
I love Scrabble probably more than Words with Friends. However, games with various opponents disappear. Then when I begin a new game with the one who disappeared I end up with the old game as well as the new game. Wish I knew how to prevent this.
I'm done with scrabble (by coolhandchuck on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 22:31:00)
The old version now does not work and was forced to use the new version. After having to signin twice in an hour, I've since deleted this app. I'm finished with Scrabble until they can fix this app or allow the old version to be played again.
Hate (by Bowden_brown on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 19:57:00)
How many times do I have to log in? All the time!!! I would not play at all except friend goes out of his way to keeping playing
Crashes (by Cowgalsara on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 18:32:00)
I LOVE this app but it seems to be crashing a lot lately and takes multiple tries before it will load properly to make a play. Hope there's a fix for that!
A new low in customer relations and satisfaction (by IanVT on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 17:26:00)
Ignore the "5 star ratings"...In a survey of 40 Scrabble friends from all over, ZERO find the game tolerable anymore. One of the worst forced updates ever. Confusing and child-like format now. Whoever brainstormed this update should be fired. Unbelievable how unresponsive and oblivious App makers/EA are to their customers. And just as bad with the "new and improved update"...They really need to pull the pin and go back to old app format. When I now see the EA logo on ANYTHING, I flee for my life in the opposite direction!!!
My Origin account doesn't remember me (by DORF_1973 on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 17:14:00)
I almost always have to log into my origin account with my username and password. It will not remember these things.
SCRABBLE Review from 651th to 700th
frustrated (by that's all there is? on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 15:20:00)
Great game. Like playing it but it freezes / reboots when internet is lost. Why not have a switch to NOT be connected so it can be played without annoying "network lost" messages. Not everyone is playing with friends.
For people who likes auto tile recall (by ardyey on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 14:42:00)
Just hit exchange tiles once voila just like auto recall
Get notifications when not my turn (by Hpycat on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 13:51:00)
Ok app, but now get annoying notifications when my friends haven't played (we don't always play daily and don't nudge each other). If I wanted to start another game, I would have. Don't need your reminder.
Sick of getting logged out (by Wonderfall Dave on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 02:23:00)
Have to log back in every single play, and the auto-login does not work at all. Very, very frustrating.
Addicted & Sad (by Lenny Spaetzle on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 02:12:00)
Please repair Origin and the lovely auto-login feature.
Great! (by 4eyes416 on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 01:42:00)
At first, the updates were downers, but, better with time. I like the ease of starting games with more than one player.
Bilingual (by Bellezalover on Tue, 03 Dec 2013 00:23:00)
It would be great to be able to play the game using two or more languages. Also, you shouldn't have to pass back-and-forth five times for the game to understand that you can't play your remaining tiles. There has to be an easier way to do that.
Great app (by Italnova on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 23:45:00)
Love this app, so far no complaints to report.
Thanks! (by Ruth78102 on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 20:59:00)
Thanks for bringing back the feature that leaves the tiles on the board!
Time killer (by Aanguss3 on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 18:49:00)
I am waiting to die and this is helping me kill time.
Lacking (by Ojaski on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 14:00:00)
I enjoy scrabble, but why can't I communicate with other players? I don't want to login to origin or Facebook. My husband has a chess game and he's able to communicate with other players. After paying big bucks for this game I would like to communicate with players.
Frequent sign-in a distraction (by Mo1068 on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 12:29:00)
Frequent sign-in requirement is a major distraction. Otherwise, a solid game.
Like the Game: Hate Constantly Logging in (by JCinChina on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 11:28:00)
The functionality of the game is good, but the constant need to login to origins is frustrating. I can play a turn and then need to login again.
Not so bad! (by Hecklerbrad on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 06:25:00)
People hate change and just like to complain. Took a little getting used to, but I kinda like the new version.
Fun if you want to rack your mind. (by Tax Gran on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 05:31:00)
I like it but loses connection but could me my area. It is fun and make me think. Sometimes my letters disappear? But it is fun! I enjoy playing!
scrabble (by Zimbos07 on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 05:25:00)
Great game. Love it !! Latest update has removed auto recall so thanks for that.
Now a Cookie jar (by Don from NV on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 03:11:00)
Scrabble once was an enjoyable multi-player game; now it's a Trojan horse for cookies, clear GIFs, and other tracking devices to be installed on your phone or computer. I'm really disappointed.
Invades your privacy (by JPinSPhilly on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 02:07:00)
Network error. (by Mrsimontibbs on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 00:50:00)
This piece keeps kicking me out and forcing me to log in over and over. No matter how many updates they put up, it's never fixed.
teacher (by cay333 on Mon, 02 Dec 2013 00:18:00)
What happened to turning off the teacher? He is annoying. Also no sound off. Not fond of latest changes.
New EULA License (by Otiose on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 23:18:00)
The developers of this app -- that I paid for and have used for two years now -- continue to stumble. The most recent affront: I just opened the app and was presented with the requirement to enter my age and agree to their EULA license. I was given NO alternative, not even to quit. I've deleted the app.
App notifications broken (by Coke on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 23:05:00)
OK implementation of the game, but the app frequently resets to have a badge of (1) , despite it not bring my turn in any of the games I'm in. Enter the app, nothing to justify the badge.
Great game for your iPhone! (by Huck73 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 23:01:00)
Excellent game with wonderful gameplay. Love this game...but having to log in 5-10 times a day is annoying. This is why I stopped playing...and the only reason why I don't play as much as I'd like!
Fun to play (by Avoch1 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 21:55:00)
Still waiting for definitions for the bizarre words the teacher comes up with.
Word with friends (by Sharle1 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 21:20:00)
Great app with lots of fun
Oops my bad (by Uniforme on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 20:35:00)
I made the mistake of paying for the game and it deleted the games that I had been playing. Some apps are worth paying for and some aren't. I agree I like old version better.
Scrabble A+ (by Hutch8700 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 19:26:00)
Outstanding game. Enjoy playing by self. Needs a "use most letters" as well as "best word" thanks!
AWESOME!!! (by JessT44 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 17:39:00)
Scrabble is such a fun and addicting game... Definitely a well worth it purchase
Will the Real Scrabble Please Stand Up? (by DCPlaya2010 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 15:18:00)
I'm giving this app 3 stars only because it doesn't follow the original Scrabble dictionary. Also, the Origin login constantly crashes. Fix those 2 issues and they'll get 5 stars. Otherwise, it's still fun to play because it's Scrabble. If you love word games, you love Scrabble.
Nice App (by Cardis99 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 14:47:00)
I'm glad the auto recall function was removed. That was kind of annoying.
good value (by lamotteskiddalyboomboom on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 14:34:00)
i love scrabble and was happy to be able to get it on the i phone.......works flawlessly......only thing i wish this had was a connection to a scrabble dictionary......i would like to be able to find out what the word means if it is not currently in my vocab..... However! The iPad version is not as good. Better on the kingle. Only does portrait on th ipad so downgrading my stars from five to one.
Suggestion (by Kijen on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 14:17:00)
As an educator I wish I could have a way to see the teachers suggested word definition so I could learn more words. Yes i usually write it down and look it up later. Thanks
SUXORS! (by Ghiagrl on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 12:58:00)
It makes me sign in constantly, sometimes in the middle of a game! And, to add insult to injury, the sign-in screen uses a grey 4 pt font. It's like being subjected to random eye tests while trying to finish a turn.
Slow (by Shelving Queen on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 12:15:00)
I like the teacher feature a lot and the two letter word list. My only complaint is it is very slow. I also play WWF and they just had a new update and it is lightning fast now. I play both because I have friends who still use Scrabble. Now if they could just combine the speed wi the benefits:)
Ms. (by Word Tapper on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 10:09:00)
Accepts weird words. Are they English? Would like to be able to see my scores over time. Miss auto recall of letters that don't form words. Hardly ever get blanks. Trouble using dictionary. Game is good but not like the real board game.
Fab Game (by Scrab a lot on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 08:44:00)
Love except that it logs me out WAY too often. Should eliminate need to log in.
Buggy but fun! (by News junkie in dc on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 07:04:00)
Latest version is improved but still requires you to log in to Facebook constantly instead of just taking you directly to your games. Sometimes crashes.
Fantastic Game (by Nicky Mac on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 03:35:00)
If you need something more challenging than tossing birds at fat pigs or shooting things, this game is it. It never crashes on my iPhone 5 and lets you play against other Internet users or the computer. Very pleased with my purchase.
Inconsistent (by Link of the sheikah on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 02:41:00)
Some words allowed on iPad version and not iPhone. For example JA is allowed on my iPad; same app too! Also, AFRO not allowed. Afro is a hair style just as crew, butch, flip, curl and buzz are. Other than that, and a few other inconsistencies I love the game.
Hate upgrade! (by pt fort gratiot on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 02:38:00)
I hate everything about the upgrade! I loved the old version. The new version does not allow you to stay logged in. You have to login every time. I find it hard to find old games I'm playing with somebody. Please go back to the old version!
Great (by Peso76 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 02:26:00)
This is a great game.
Scrabble (by Lath deep on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 01:48:00)
I love scrabble. I typically play the computer because I find people don't complete games and I have to fired a forfeit, which really annoys me.
YO3633 (by Yo3633 on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 00:18:00)
A toggle for auto-recall probably makes sense since opinions are all over the place. My issue is signing on with my email address every time. My e-banking isn't that "secure". Great otherwise.
Login seemingly fixed but... (by LongLakeJ on Sun, 01 Dec 2013 00:10:00)
... as others before mentioned, the annoying background music resets itself to full volume anytime one exits the game. If that issue gets fixed, this app will finally be where it needs to be, functionally speaking!
Scrabble (by Rosebud73333 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 23:00:00)
Scrabble is my favorite game. I enjoy the way this game is set up for both the IPod and IPad. I like the for helps they help out when I am in a hurry. It is a great app.
SICK & TIRED OF FREEZING AND... (by Euph8 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 22:36:00)
...HAVING TO RELOG INTO ORIGINS!! The rest of the app is great, but WHEN WILL THEY FINALLY FIX the way the app freezes EVERY time I open it. Requires 2-4 tries to open. And then Origin does NOT save my email address even though it used to, and I have to RELOG at least twice a day.
Much better (by Pattycake7777 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 22:24:00)
Love the upgrade. I don't miss auto recall at all!
Horrible (by ScrabbleFan24444 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 22:17:00)
Still horrible! Why do I have to keep logging in all the time?!?!?! Clearly the developers at EA didn't test the updated version before releasing it. It's clunky and slow with a focus more on social, without a quality product for people to want to socialize on. I keep getting logged out and my games aren't always showing up on my home screen. Please bring back the old version. This update is horrible.
Inconsistent. Auto log in doesn't work. Auto log in doesnt work. You disconnect me from game l (by Gardeness on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 22:06:00)
With latest update at the end of every game I get disconnected and have to log in again. Frustrating. Glad u fixed, took Away auto letter return. It keeps logging out and hard to log back in keeps shutting down Took me days to log in. It finally accepted me. It keeps disconnecting and I have to re log in. Old version less complicated but some updates are nice Just wish it wouldn't keep cutting out. Please fix it. It's broke. Please repair updated version. It's terrible. Too many glitches. Nothing is fixed after weeks of struggle and frustration. Letters disappear and sometimes float back in. Thx for trying to fix things I keep getting message Network error etc. but game doesn't disconnect usually. April 2013 you updated app now it never tells me that opponent played. Frustrated.
Solid game (by dark7211800pr on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 21:56:00)
Always a good play, but sure do miss playing in house on bluetooth with other devices.
SCRABBLE Review from 701th to 750th
Zero stars (by DJ4545 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 20:20:00)
Why do I have to re-log on each time I want to play a move. Also, why does the word checking area not work effectively. Needs improving if you want to get Words With people to move across.
Still not right (by 2nd Cityzen on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 20:00:00)
I still get logged out every couple hours for no reason. Too many friends quit playing because of that bug. This has gone on for months. FIX IT! Would also be nice for high ELO players to draw other high ELO players as random opponents instead of first-timers who get frustrated and quit.
HATE. HATE. HATE sign-in (by BadLad99 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 18:34:00)
The sub-app "Origin" is supposed to connect you to all your friends. All it does for me is keep signing me off - sometimes more than once a day. GEESH I just wanna play the game, not sign in every time!
fun game but accepts invalid words (by Jennh1954 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 17:42:00)
When you play against the computer It uses words unknown such as when I enter quiz or hero it places an S in front of word instead at end of word so new word from the computer is squiz or Shero. No wonder the computer wins most of the games.
Buggy and frustrating SIGNS YOU OUT!! (by RachalGrace on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 17:38:00)
Really needs work. I like some of the new capabilities like moving between games with an easy slide up but it logs you out of origin and Facebook frequently and then refuses to allow you back in without a total re-boot of my phone. The teacher is strange looking. My boyfriend is ready to quit playing because of the log out issues. The layout appears to emulate Words with Friends. I understand the need for change but please address bugs.
Forces restart when interrupted (by SG NA on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 17:27:00)
This current version almost never resumes properly, requiring a full restart, with several extra clicks and seconds, and much less fun.
"Don't Fix What Ain't Broken..." (by Boo Radleigh on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 15:57:00)
The very first version of Scrabble was hands-down the best. Of course, we Scrabble lovers will always adjust to new changes--what else can you do? The newer version is "busier" aesthetically and has more bells and whistles than a purist needs, but it's still good ol' Scrabble underneath all the frills. By the way, removing the auto-recall for tiles was a GREAT idea. That was an extremely distracting feature! Almost off-putting. So, great move!
Great Scrabble Game! (by rleem on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 14:07:00)
Nice to have genuine Scrabble game on my phone!
Superb!! (by DaViess on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 13:23:00)
After much needed updates it is now a pleasure to play. Well worth the $$. FB connection is great.
My scrabble review (by DJA 1 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 12:48:00)
The game has had its problems overs the years but the always fix them in a timely fashion. I would recommend this app!
Great App! (by C913 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 07:45:00)
This is one app that lives up to the original. For those of us who love to have fun with words, you will get a lot of hours of enjoyment from this version. Well worth the price!
Thank you (by MasterZiggy on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 07:44:00)
Thank you for getting rid of that awful automatic recall function. I know some people liked it so if you bring it back, please bring it back as an option not as a requirement. I hated it.
Love the options (by 4laurab on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 07:09:00)
For customizing the way you want to Scrabble. I agree with the previous reviewer that the tile recall should be a toggle in the next update. Personally I didn't like it but I'm all for choices. Great game!
Frequent player (by Jdupuy&& on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 06:21:00)
Would love to be able to turn the teacher off like we used to. Having her/him tell you what you could have played after you played it and used your tiles is not helpful and it slows the game down.
Latest update improved (by The right person to listen to on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 05:44:00)
Thank you for removing the auto-recall. That drove me crazy. I like the teacher feature. All around fun game
Great Fun But... (by toto. too on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 01:47:00)
It's great to be able to play with friends but the app has too many bugs. I have to resign - in so many times I start yelling at the darn thing. Drives me mad. Dictionary doesn't include ordinary words that exist in Websters. Frustrating.
Great app (by Victor Shaw on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 01:37:00)
Luv this app whether playing a random person or against the computer
Very Good! (by Eileen M. Rowley on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 01:35:00)
I think my game has improved since I've been playing at the difficult level against the computer.
Great game, poor app (by ln7260 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 01:09:00)
The most annoying thing is the need to re-login through origin just about every time the app is used. Also, since the last update it has become impossible for people logged in through Facebook to even see friends logged in through origin, who cannot send them new games.
Dictionary? (by PFCBeetleBailey on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 00:55:00)
Better now, BUT...word dictionary is now changed?? FART is not a word now? The worst that I always need is The word IPE which is a hard wood -- if OAK is a word why is IPE not a Word???
Addictive (by Mama Ros AKA on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 00:47:00)
Loads of fun! Hard to put it down! Be warned. I had this game a couple o years ago. It always froze up so I deleted it. Don't remember who put that one out. This is waaayyy better!
Needs To Have Definitions of Words Be Available! (by hoodrat91910 on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 00:06:00)
After completing a game of Scrabble, you're given the option to view the entire board with all the tiles still on it. This is a nice feature. However, I would like to see an option that would allow someone to tap on a given word and see that words definition. This would be a great way to build one's vocabulary. Or somehow have the Scrabble app link to a dictionary app so that the words could be looked up easily. Of course, I'm talking about the more obscure words and not everyday, ordinary words.
Should not have to give personal info (by Memer999 on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 22:56:00)
I paid for this game. I should not have to give you my personal information just to play. I should not be forced to play others. This is wrong.
Scrabble - fun (by Nice pad on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 22:49:00)
Lots of fun. Learning new words!
Love app, problem with recent upgrade (by Elizabeth SH on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 19:52:00)
Huh - I wrote the review below (in quotes) about version 3.3.4 in May and am surprised by the similarities in my concerns. The intermediate versions got better and fixed most of the bugs I hated (but added auto recall, which was annoying). Now we have the latest and greatest version, and all of a sudden I have to log in every 27 seconds (OK, slight exaggeration, but really frequently), and it tells me I don't have a network connection when every other app on my iPhone & iPad do have internet connections. So, although I'm glad they removed auto recall, I had to downgrade my review because now it doesn't work at all! "I've been playing Scrabble with this app for about a year now and generally thought it got better with each upgrade until recently. First it often told me that the network wasn't working well so I'd have "reduced functionality"(whatever that means). Then there was the Facebook log in snafu, which does seem to have largely resolved with the most recent upgrade. However, it is now having problems with Origin (one of my games has disappeared);the little indicator that says how many games are waiting for your move is never accurate, and when you open it it doesn't automatically update but instead says that you don't have any games (have to close that pop up and pull down to update manually). I'm still using it but at least one of my friends has switched over to Words with Friends (which I also play but prefer Scrabble when it works well). Hope these problems get fixed soon".

Scabbaholic Used to Love Scrabble App!! (by Indazone8 on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 12:24:00)
Using iPhone 5 to play this app. The latest version has issues for me I wish were fixed: 1. DICTIONARY UPPER/ LOWER CASE ISSUE: The case of the letters entered changes to UPPER CASE after using the backwards delete button so the typed entry ends up being mixed case like: scRabBle. Point size is too small in iPhone to re-position cursor where I want it on my small screen . Fix both issues by using UPPER CASE for all dictionary entries. 2. RANDOM PLAYERS NON-ORIGIN ISSUE: When I try to play a random player, they are almost always not ORIGIN-logged in players which means I cannot see their stats or impact my rating. I only want to play ORIGIN-recognized players. So I have to start a random game, then cancel the game when I see its a non-Origin player, then select a new random player, then cancel and continue the cycle usually about 2 dozen times before finding a vetted opponent. Oh, and the system only allows about a dozen attempts before logging you out for too many frequent attempts to play. Fix this to at least give the option to only be offered players that are ORIGIN-logged in. 3. GAMES HISTORY: Can only see history of last 10 games...provide access to more or all history...want to see history of total wins/losses versus people I have played. 4. RE-LOGIN TO ORIGIN ISSUE: Way too many requests to log back into Origin...sometimes 3 in 10 minutes. Also, seems to log out if ORIGIN when the iPhone is connected via both verizon and WiFi and I leave the house which means I lose WiFi or I enter my house which means I add WiFi. 5. BLANK TILE OPTION: I do wish we had the option to trade my tile for a blank after it is played. Other than these annoying features, I like the app.
Getting better (by ooh its the snaw on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 11:25:00)
Game is better after last fiasco. Suggested improvements: SPEED! Get rid of delay after moves and the dumb Bingo screen. I don't want to wait a few seconds to play until after the computer plays. Give us the option of opting out of those delays. I don't want to have to click a button to do this after EVERY move.
Great game (by jtjrg35 on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 11:15:00)
Great game, lots of fun. Will recommend to all my friends.

Good enough (by Harebrained1 on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 05:07:00)
Consistently able to access games. A double challenge option would be nice though.
Rose (by Dagmar Haystrup on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 04:21:00)
I have to log in constantly, annoying, and the format for logging is very small, hard to read. Frequent problems with keeping connection to origin. Also, a slow swipe with the finger to drag a tile often switches to another game in progress, also annoying. Thank you for changing the auto recall!! Love to play against the computer, i learn a lot. I play every day, usually have 6 games going.
Great app (by Starla50 on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 01:49:00)
I love playing this with my nephew.

Better. Game good. App improved (by Kadh2000 on Fri, 29 Nov 2013 00:50:00)
I love playing Scrabble. It's one of my favorite time killers. That means me vs the computer. This is an improvement over earlier versions.
Auto recall (by Catja333 on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 23:35:00)

Better than Words With Friends (by nicolemburke7 on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 21:10:00)

Repeated login is a drag... (by Elleseasea on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 19:46:00)
I love playing scrabble with my pals, but it seems like I have to re-login at least every other day! Can you fix this bug! PS thanks for getting rid of the auto recall of tiles when the word choice is rejected : )
Great game (by Bowlings finest on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 19:05:00)
I enjoy the app and playing the game minus always having to re login to origin, I would give it 4-5 stars but that login in all the time stuff blows my top

What happened to my games before I upgraded.did I forfeit them. I don't like in dict. You can't just change a letter. You to erase the whole word to change a letter.sometimes change is not good.

SCRABBLE Review from 751th to 800th
Good overall, but network and crashing issues (by drnickriviera999 on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 15:39:00)
I have used the program for over a year now. Overall it works quite well. However, it crashes more than most apps I have. It seems to lose connection to the network fairly often. I think the execution and design of the program are otherwise good. One minor annoyance is that when you're trying to drag a tile to the board, sometimes you miss the tile. In that case dragging the finger across the board causes it to switch to the next game. I wish this was something which could be toggled off, as errant finger swipes are common on such a game. I kept hoping that subsequent updates would address these issues, particularly fixing the crashing problem, but it has not seemed to have done so. Despite these issues, it is a game which I have enjoyed playing on a daily basis. Update 11/28/13 I have to reduce my rating. The app is flawed. The origin login gets lost every day and I have to reenter the username and password. I have written to the game makers, but have not heard anything back. Several updates and really no improvements. I play scrabble every day and have to suffer through the annoyances.
Love it! (by MDGalbraith on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 15:15:00)
I play often and love the teacher function.
Today I yam thankful for 3.6.1 (by DeAnza Days on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 15:14:00)
Good: TileTracker (and no more auto-recall). Bad: I never log out on purpose, and yet if an opponent takes a few days I have to log in just to see if it's my turn (at least on a non-FB game). Conclusion: it's bingos beyond WordFeud, Words With Friends, and any other imitators I've forgotten.
Challenging Game & Fun (by dmp4x2 on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 14:20:00)
Have really enjoyed playing this game and really love the Teacher function (though sometimes can drive you crazy).
Pretty good (by Floydito on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 14:15:00)
Definitely better than WWF. Many bugs fixed. Not sure why auto recall is gone though. Make it a toggle.
Fun (by Porker739 on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 13:34:00)
Gotta stick with the originals.
So much better than words with friends (by WordyI on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 11:29:00)
LOVE the teacher feature. Such a better dictionary than what words with friends (wwf) goes by. Appropriate points reward for 7 letter words, as opposed to wwf, which has ridiculous bonus tile placement.

No (by snewks on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 08:52:00)
Use to be one of my favorite games, but now they want me to verify my age. I shouldn't have to do this to play. If they don't remove this question soon, I will delete the app.

Annoying and Frustrating--Update 11/28/13 (by jrollo7 on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 04:18:00)
**App changes have greatly improved the Scrabble app. No longer asking for constant sign-ins; bugs virtually disappeared; removed the recall of tiles feature when a potential word was not accepted-they listened to their customers! Good comeback by Scrabble. Constant requirement to sign in is very annoying and a waste of time. On going bugs, game play delays are also very frustrating. Scrabble needs to get its software program up to speed and playable on a more consistent basis without the downtime. Stop the constant sign in requests!
Great. (by Kml811 on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 03:52:00)
Only bad thing I can say is that the vocabulary could use to be updated. Otherwise A++
Overall rating -- SUPERB (by StormyLTC on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 03:50:00)
The app loads fast, provides many ways to play, and plays quickly. I liked the auto tile recall, and feel it should have remained an option. I thoroughly enjoy playing against 2 computer opponents, perhaps because I win the majority of the time. The computer moves immediately and the scoring is almost instantaneous -- this makes game play extremely enjoyable. I prefer looking at the entire board all the time, and would like to see that as an option, rather than the auto zoom, and having to double tap to restore the view of the entire board. Even without any further changes, as it stands -- this is a 5 star app.
The new scrabble (by Sofiegina on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 02:45:00)
I prefer the old version.. I have at least 8 games that I can't play because the random players haven't logged in to take their turn in 3-4 weeks!! How do I get rid of the games without having to forfeit the games? Where's the " nudge" option? This really bites! Ok since the fixes, much better!!!
Too many issues (by Knittingquilter on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 02:11:00)
Too many network connection errors
Great App (by JoanCarol on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 00:53:00)
How dare they ask your age in order for you to use the game! I gave a wrong age ! That's ridiculous and nobody's business !
Excellent game (by LibraryJohn on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 00:52:00)
The only inconvenience is getting logged out of Origin during a game. Not difficult to re-log in, but a little annoyance. Overall a great game. I get annoyed at players using online help. Play the computer if you don't have the vocabulary to play another person!
Outstanding! (by Rattlerfan on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 00:51:00)
Best app and best game in existence. Can't imagine life without it. The original and the best. Don't waste time with copycat versions. I'm an addict!
As good as the original game (by General Ludd on Thu, 28 Nov 2013 00:47:00)
Well designed, attractive, and plays like the board game. The teacher can be very helpful and also annoying (because you can start to believe that, for every play, there is some monstrously high-scoring play you missed.)

This app keeps on improving. And it continues to get better. Plus, my skills get better every time the computer schools me with words/acronyms/onomatopoeias from deep within the bowels of the MW.
Always enjoy scrabble (by Readathoner on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 23:54:00)
Nice to have it handy on my phone. Have been playing for over a year now. Even though some of the words are strange, always good to learn more. Enjoyed the purchased version so I can play in on an airplane.

Love the game, hate the App (by 815kellyd on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:59:00)
Freezes frequently, have had to reload twice in a month.
Love the game, BUT (by Crimson player on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:50:00)
I immensely enjoy playing Scrabble, however I can't stand the near daily messages I get REMINDING me to play!! An app has no business telling me when to use it. Address this in your next update or I will have to delete it because it's driving me crazy!
Very frustrated (by AmberEyes95 on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:46:00)
I love this app. Play daily mostly with family connected with Facebook, but I have one friend I play with through Origin. I am ALWAYS getting logged out of Origin. It never stays connected therefore I don't get notified when it's my turn. Even if I am playing and close app to reply to a text I have to re-log in when I open the app again to play. It's extremely inconvenient and frustrating. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!
Problem (by A gymrat on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:37:00)
It shuts down five to ten seconds after opening the app. I can't play the game at all. Please fix.
Good game, but (by Sheree555 on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:37:00)
I love the game, but after a few updates ago the tile spread out, against the computer, got kind of uneven. I'm either getting all vowels or awesome tiles. There is no in between. Other than that, I love the game.
Scrabble Update (by AlanJPat on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:20:00)
It's good that auto letter recall has been done away with, but the game continues to be plagued with bugs. For instance, when starting a game and then leaving it, the app crashes. Also, when starting a new game, the letter v populates the rack a lot more than it should: like 1 out 5-10 instead of 1 out of 42.

It Took Them Long Enough! (by Drawboard on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 12:55:00)
After a year of suffering through missing functionality and software crashes, it looks like the powers that be have resolved all of the problems with this game. Thank You. ps-thank you for removing the auto tile recall. It was bothersome.
Scrabble (by Netters123 on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 12:48:00)
Good fun and a learning experience with the "teacher"!
So bummed (by Seber7 on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 12:35:00)
I LOVED the original version of Scrabble that looked like the old board game. EA changed it and it became clunky and not fun to play because I was so upset by the drastic change. I will change the rating to 5 stars if they revert back to the old version. I've not played this game in months but I miss what it used to be. ********* Update 11/25/13 - I've changed my rating. I used to really hate how they changed from the old version to the new version, but they've improved the new version and I no longer hate it. In fact, I'm back to really liking it again. Thanks for updating it so it's not so clunky.
First rate! (by Roxanne Stewart on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 12:29:00)

Thank you for removing the auto tile removal! More often than not, if a word isn't right I'll change one or more tiles. With the auto remove it was frustrating to have to put them all back on the board - in the same space. You rock!
Great game (by OX1958 on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 11:43:00)
I was a chess player for years, but I find this much more challenging and enjoyable. Kudos and gratitude to the inventor of this game !

Thanks for removing auto recall. If you still want it, just click the recall button.

Really cool. A lot better since the auto removal was cancelled
Terrible update~ keep previous version (by Whipswr 5 on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 00:54:00)
Terrible update~ DO NOT board format. Previous score covers up last letter in word Format is cumbersome ~ playing with partner or online has dominance More difficult to just play by yourself PLEASE change back! CRASHES When recall letters, not all letters return~ have to hit shuffle to get all letters back Give us back previous version!!!!!!!!!! This latest update is so much better~ thank you for not recalling letters when they don't form a word
Great game! (by Prettieyze on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 23:20:00)
I've always been a big fan of Scrabble. This app is a great way to play the game in the go. Only reason it has 4 stars instead of 5 is that the dictionary should allow the player to check the words played by the opponent as well as your own.
April173 (by AprilinCa on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 23:01:00)
Great app if u like Scrabble! I installed it in my Kindle and iPhone, can continue same games with either device. I had to get used to the option to stretch games to 24hrs or 72hrs having been playing Internet scrabble that is timed before, but it's great that you can go to work then continue your games after work. U can play 6 or more games at the same time if u want. Great app!

Way too buggy (by jhencken on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 22:28:00)
The last couple of updates have completely ruined the game. Playing with someone else through Facebook, you never know how long it's going to take for their move to actually show up on your screen. You have to turn the iPad 90° and then back in order to get stuff to come through. The game also hangs where it says capital and EXT instead of the option to play, and you have to start the whole thing over again in order to get it to unfreeze. All this is been reported multiple times, to no effect.
Eye candy + Distractions + Tiny Tiles = Awful (by mashny on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 21:48:00)
Version 3.6.1 Why did you get rid of the tile-recall feature?!?! Now when I put down tiles I don't like I have to manually pull them all back; when the board is almost full, and I accidentally move a tile to some random square I have to search around to find my tile. What were you thinking?!?! If some people don't like the feature then made it a setting in the options settings, but don't get rid of it! _______________ Earlier version I have no idea what EA was thinking other than they needed to compete with Words With Friends, or they thought it would be a great idea to sacrifice simplicity and functionality for a swamp of color and clutter. EA: people who play Scrabble love the game, love words, and take the game seriously; Scrabble is not a "new sensation" like Words With Friends -- its players are more traditional, have more of a purist mentality, and are more hardcore. You have to wade through a morass of "features" to get to your game, and when you do, the new style of the tiles make them appear smaller and much more difficult to read, ditto for the board itself. Fortunately I have my apps backed up so I was able to reinstall the prior version. My wife uses the Facebook application on the computer, and I couldn't believe how awful it was after they changed the interface a week or so ago, so imagine my surprise when I saw the same changes had been made to the app... The only feature I do like about this version is the clearer chat, and the fact that the chat finally has autocorrect; unfortunately, the negatives of the new version far outweigh this. I have no intention of upgrading this app again until EA brings the interface more in line with the prior version.
Too slick (by majortom619 on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 21:21:00)

Sucktacular, or Craptastic? (by Love the NFL, hate the DirecTV on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 16:03:00)
Scrabble, as a game, is as solid as ever. A long time ago, Scrabble was one of the best games available. This app, unfortunately, has been an unmitigated distaster since the update to version 3.x. The animations are choppy and ugly. The nudge and force-forfeit commands are spotty at best. Notifications are almost always wrong, both under- and over-reporting. Pop-ups slow down the play. Logins are painfully slow when they work...the program is CONSTANTLY logging me out. And for whatever reason it can't even remember my email address, maiking the sign-ins even more tedious. I'm sure Origin is good for something, but I sure haven't found it yet. And the cherry on top is the never-ending Facebook pandering. It might be hard to believe but there are people who don't use FB. I could do without those stupid blue f's being shoved in my face all the time. At this point, it's impossible to recommend this app. I can only hope that at some point, Hasbro will step in to protect their IP. Everyone at EA involved with this app should be fired.
Love it! (by GrounControl on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 15:17:00)
I've been playing scrabble for years with my best friend (and losing most of the time! Lol!) and got this app because I love the game. Gotta say, I've got no complaints. I actually like the fact that there isn't a timer, as the real world interrupts real time play. I've had games last only a few hours, or a couple of weeks. However, I along with a few other reviewers here wish that they had made an option to turn on/off the automatic tile recall. Otherwise a great app, and a serious time killer!
Shuffleboards (by Shuffleboards on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 14:39:00)
A really fun app except for the fact that when playing against multiple computer opponents if you go out first, it will on occasion give one of the computer opponents the points for the other players remaining tiles. Annoying! It is for this reason that I give it a 1 star
Help! (by Sabertooth on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 14:18:00)
I may need therapy since I have been introduced to the electronic version of "SCRABBLE" Kudos to everyone that has been infected with the bug! As pharaohs were buried with their intimate belonging for their journey into the here after mine will be my trusty iPhone with the scrabble app selected. Much better since you have gone back to its original form of not removing tiles automatically when a spelled word is not valid! Thanks for listening!
Candygrl7 (by Candygrl007 on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 14:13:00)
These updates are NOT fixing the real issues!! Stop making me log in ti Origin everytime I need to play! If you cant fix the app refund my money so I can delete it
Pretty Good (by Dbofenkamp on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 13:54:00)
I would have given this 5 stars if it followed the English / Scrabble dictionary.
Still not right... (by Danboy23 on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 12:20:00)
There are STILL problems with the final SCORING!!!!!! When playing against 3 computer players, sometimes when I play my last tiles and end the game, the leftover letter points of the other computer players are not credited to MY SCORE AS THEY SHOULD BE, but rather to one of the other computer opponents...even though I ended the game!!! I don't understand why, and find it frustrating when it causes me to loose a game I would have won if the points had been credited correctly. This happens a lot...PLEASE FIX THIS!
Notification overload (by willsc8forwings on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 11:50:00)
Newer updates have made this app annoying, sending spammy notifications (you haven't played in a while...) and not always sending notifications that opponent has played.
Add a clock please and the ability to choose the word list or the type of dictionary you want. (by Mom of 3 active boys on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 09:30:00)
I love playing scrabble. This app has many great features: ability to play with an expert level computer, ability to play with other players, the board looks good, the scoring is fast, the sound effects are good. Cons: there is no timer (a player could take forever)...there should be the ability to control a clock/time the moves like in scrabble club or tournament plays, the old feature that when you try to take back tiles which caused all of the tiles to be recalled was a bit annoying, but has thankfully been fixed, one should be able to choose the kind of dictionary/word list for plays like in real tournaments...if these changes could be made, wordbiz could have some serious competition.
Can't log in to Facebook (by David stein on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 09:18:00)
Can't see my games. Please fix.
Auto recall removed. Yay! (by Toaldu on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 06:23:00)
Thanks for listening to feedback. An on/off setting would have been better, but as long as its not there, I'm happy.
Fasanga (by Fasang alfasees on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 04:36:00)
Why did you remove the auto tile recall . That was a bad move ! Please bring it back .
BUYER BEWARE!!! (by OldV on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 03:32:00)
Developer continues to ignore numerous reviews citing this same problem: Game frequently, randomly interrupts play to inform me that I am suddenly "logged out." The next screen then displays a message saying "automatically logging in"--which never works. I am then forced to go through the tedious reentry of an email address followed by a password containing numbers, letters, capitals--in a tiny font no less. Many many people have voiced this same complaint--to no avail. After well over a year and numerous updates, EA Games continues to ignore this major problem. (And now, I apologize for raising my voice but EA Games obviously isn't listening so...) HEY, EA GAMES, EITHER TURN OFF THE REQUIREMENT TO LOGIN OR FIX THE FREAKING AUTO LOGIN FUNCTION!
Awesome (by Wolfchik86 on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 03:23:00)
Great game. I wish I had bought it sooner. I love scrabble.
Great value! (by cheerleaderFLP on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 01:49:00)
Endless fun -- a huge time sink!
New version (3.0.1) still has bugs. (by cruisindavid on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 01:01:00)
There are more Network errors with this app than it's main competitor. When Apple changed the iOS for the iPhone 5 release, it is no longer possible to jump from another app to Scrabble without Scrabble completely reloading. This is a nuisance; I hope they get it back like it was where it picks up where the user left it when coming back in from another app. There are periods when something changes with the FaceBook interface or iOS and this app quits working properly. It takes EA a few days to get a handle on the problem and release a new version with a fix. But I don't understand why they have a Teacher on mobile app but not when playing from Facebook version. There are many other differences and they should bring the feature set together.
Past problems fixed. Big fan now. (by Facquat on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 01:01:00)
Had some problems in the past but the current version is easy to use and filled with features (swipe to navigate, instant messaging, dictionary, multi-language support). I just wish it handled off-line (no Internet access) situations better. 11/23/2013 update: still feel exactly the same as what I wrote above a year ago.
Almost perfect, again (by Goodluxsr on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 00:54:00)
Most improvements have worked out the bugs. All the original features working plus added languages.
Sustains scrabble junkie (by Nudd on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 00:40:00)
Love, love, love, the facebook integration. This app rocks!
Great game! One glitch (by SSRoush on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 00:35:00)
Scrabble is ultimate fun challenge! One issue I am having is when wanting to play a random player, I take my turn and never get a player, please fix. Thanks for the update, still waiting for the issues to be fixed, but I trust you are working on that. Thank you for working on that! I am happy to say I am back in the game! Your updates get better and better! Thankyou for all the improvements you have made Question, do you ask how old a person is? I noticed my app changed for about 3 seconds.
Frustrating! (by Retired doofus on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 00:11:00)
Constantly crashing! Stats aren't up to date. C'mon!!! Since latest update , crash crash crash!! TERRIBLE!! Crash crash crash!!!
Addictive (by Deanokay on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 00:10:00)
Can't stop playing. Real Scrabble rules, real Scrabble dictionary.
Love it! (by Xoxoxomo on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 00:03:00)
I love this game. I play random persons and get all kinds of skill levels. I have been playing one unknown person for months and we are matched in our playing.
Fun and easy to use (by Bill550 on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 22:53:00)
I've been playing Scrabble with friends and guests for over a year. Just loaded the current version today. It works fine so far. Prior versions had a few quirks and occasional crashes, but overall good.
Only one way to improve (by akagumby on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 22:47:00)
Make it work in landscape orientation too!
Entertaining (by ElPluggy on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 22:18:00)
Improvements on stats nice. Seems a lot faster. Font upsize option would be nice. Letters especially dictionary too. Need to login repetitively is a chore. Long term login more preferred
Friekin' Addictive! (by ASRach on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 22:18:00)

Great app (by SpankMac on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 22:13:00)
Out with WWF, now that Scrabble is here! This is the original stuff. And with the latest version, all glitches are gone and I see no reason not to rate this five star.
Not Happy (by Rhh1234 on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 21:36:00)
Takes forever to load. Have to continually log in to origins. Lots of 'network' error messages while trying to play. Alerts don't work half the time... Either doesn't show someone played or shows someone did when there's no play. Can't delete old games. Very frustrating!
SCRABBLE Review from 851th to 900th
Spectacular game (by Gma7088 on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 21:25:00)
This is a great game - true to the original with lots of additional nuances that only an app can have
Awesome Game, Flawed App (by Seattle Scrabbler on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 21:18:00)
What can I say? Scrabble is, of course, a wonderful game; too bad they can't get the app right. I've been playing Scrabble for over 35 years, and the Scrabble app since my first iPhone 3 (I've since gone through a 3s and a 4 leading up to my current 5c), through several versions and/or updates. Despite my personally reporting it dozens of times (and I can't imagine I'm the only one), each successive version has carried forward an unforgivable and, presumably simple-to-correct flaw. I always play against the computer, not live strangers (I get tired of waiting for 'real' opponents to take their turns), and at least 25% of the time the game glitches by allocating points incorrectly at game's end. For example, if I beat my 3 computer opponents and "go out," it will give me "+0" points and then erroneously award the points for opponents' unplayed tiles to one of my defeated opponents instead of to me. It seldom tips the balance by causing a "defeat" where I had actually won, but very annoying; increasingly so with each new update or version that is released containing the same glitch! Can it really be I am the only one who plays (and wins) against the computer?? Please fix this stupid mistake!
PT (by Tegbee on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 21:13:00)
Good... Only complaint is that it doesn't follow the scrabble dictionary.
Improved (by North of the Border on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 20:41:00)
Last update seems better. Love that you got rid of auto recall.
Bring back the old version! (by Unfortunate Bystander on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 20:03:00)
I've been through several "updates" of this app and I guess it's better but until they bring back wifi/LAN play I will continue to give it one star. They removed the feature I paid for. I still want LAN play. 11/13 and still no LAN play. But they do listen, thanks for removing the auto tile return feature in this new version.
Unhappy (by MADchevyman on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 19:46:00)
Automatic tile recall was my favorite feature. You remove it instead of making a toggle switch for it? That's outrageous.
Last update is not done (by samsbun on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 14:51:00)
Since the last update, people that have not responded to "nudges" don't fall off. I have someone that has been there for 4 days with no response, yet they're still on my screen. THE NUDGES STILL DONT WORK. GOT BETTER BUT NOW NOT EVEN A NUDGE BUTTON
Good and bad (by johnjapan2 on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 13:02:00)
Solo play is good, and the teacher is brilliant, but playing with others (NOT using Facebook) can be flaky.
Love it (by Goots55 on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 12:45:00)
I play on the subway, one or two turns per commute. It helps me learn words and the time flies. I wish it would give me word definitions too.
Totally addicting. (by Danielle Taber on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 05:10:00)
Love this game, I play each night before bed!
Fun game! (by Machholz on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 22:37:00)
We have struggled through so many updates in the last couple of years with SCRABBLE it's crazy. One constant, though, we keep playing. 299 games later I have to say I really enjoy it......obviously!
From good to awful (by Lmslms on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 16:32:00)
I cannot understand why they removed Bluetooth connectivity - TERRIBLE idea. Can't believe they charge $11 for an app they keep making worse.
Much Improved (by Lalvarili on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 16:03:00)
You've made a lot of great fixes - thank you! My only complaint is that it logs me out all the time and it's a pain to have to sign in with username and password all the time. Why can't it keep me logged in like every other game I play???
Very addictive (by Barlennan on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 15:20:00)

Great game, Crappy app. Crashes regularly. Won't stay logged into Origin. (by JuniorWhite on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 14:49:00)
Great game, Crappy app. Crashes regularly. Won't stay logged into Origin.
Login and other problems (by Mike in Lyons, IL on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 11:19:00)
I can't believe that EA or Hasbro are happy with this app. It has always been plagued by bugs that make this a second rate (at best) competitor with Words With Friends. The app badge problem has almost been fixed but the app spams you with repeated notifications trying to get you to play the app. Buying this app was almost a complete waste of money.
Bad update (by mssailor on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 10:35:00)
IPhone update omitted "best word suggestion" feature. :( Otherwise, good version.
Latest changes no good (by ScvNick on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 06:15:00)
Why do I have to login six times a day to play a stupid game… Makes me want to not bother to play anymore because it is too frustrating to keep logging in again and again. Also why do they need to take all of letters off the board if you misspell a word like other players have said
Needs a Fix (by zenwabi on Sun, 24 Nov 2013 02:42:00)
The change-a-game-by-swiping-your-finger-over-the-board feature needs to be deleted, as many times you switch games by accident. I prefer Hasbro Scrabble over WWF, as the ads on WWF are obnoxious, Scrabble loads the games faster, and I prefer the classic Scrabble board.
Scrabble lovers (by CherieAmes on Sat, 23 Nov 2013 23:07:00)
This app is flexible for one to play by yourself or one or more friends . An App Store staple for all Scrabble lovers. It does seem funny that number next to my app Logo. No message or update is attached.
It was better on the Palm (by AndidoNH on Sat, 23 Nov 2013 16:52:00)
I miss the ability to see the definition of the words the computer uses. The Palm version did that. Other than that the game's alright.
Love it! (by DeirdreDa on Sat, 23 Nov 2013 12:51:00)
Works great on iphone
Great game, needed Improvements ? (by megamoguls on Sat, 23 Nov 2013 04:32:00)
1. Removal of tiles with misspelled words annoying. 2. Signing in and having a default of "sharing" to be searchable is bad defaulting. I shouldn't have to opt for private. 3. Home screen has adds and visually cluttered, how is this better? 4. Two letter word list some letters faded, why? If anything make the text larger for those of us over 40. I DO like 1. Words show point value on board for last play and during word trials 2. I can try words when it is not my turn to see what my options are. 3. Thank you for fixing the crashes. I love Scrabble, both the board game and the APP, I think fixing the connectivity crashes was needed, but some beta testing would have kept the game more true to Scrabble original. Prior version of Scrabble was FIVE star until frequent crashing started. What changed? Seems odd working APP suddenly started crashing. I enjoy playing with friends and against the computer. I play daily and hope the game can be kept simple and fun.
Decent game, privacy and push issues (by Beer Geek on Sat, 23 Nov 2013 03:20:00)
I played a few games against the AI and had fun. Gameplay is challenging and difficulty can be adjusted. The "teacher" is a nice tutor to improve gameplay. Plenty of options to play the AI, friends, or strangers. This is a solid 4-star game on the surface. The reason I deleted it was that I was woken by a push alert from it around midnight. I chose to opt out of "push" notifications, but the game did not honor it. The game also sends data back to the developer by default. I deleted it because I don't trust it not to monitor my phone. A board game has no legit reason to phone home about how I use my device, and definitely should not wake me at midnight with a message. Find another word game. There are plenty out there. This one is spyware/nagware.

Despicable again!! *UPGRADE BACK!!* (by RLandlaus on Fri, 22 Nov 2013 16:47:00)
They did it again!! These people are deranged! I, as lots'n lots of others, despise this *WAY DOWNgrade*!! I have no idea what kind of corporate virus bit these idiots, but they need to *upgrade* it back to where it was or learn the cost of people's outrage!! Worst is: they've already played these games a couple of years ago and got burnt!! First *upgrade it back* then go solve your corporate retardation issues!! NOW!
Gigi2013 (by Gigihail on Fri, 22 Nov 2013 13:32:00)
Best Game there is! Only one request: PLEASE don't send my letters back to me at the end of each attempt! This really slows my game ;( thanks and i love Scrabble!'
STOP the pushy notifications (by Jason Albert on Thu, 21 Nov 2013 23:28:00)
There is no need to send me notifications when I haven't played in a while. I'm aware!!! Stop sending notifications just because I haven't opened your app in 2 days. It will not make me buy the GD Monopoly game you are advertising on the home screen. STOP, STOP, STOP!!
Steven (by Colorado Buff on Thu, 21 Nov 2013 22:05:00)

Stop signing me out!!! (by Zebbie;&&842.,)773 on Thu, 21 Nov 2013 03:27:00)
Really, Scrabble!?!? I can be in the middle of a game and am signed out. I might play for weeks on end and never get signed out. But then I'm automatically signed out 8-10 time in the same week. What gives? It's not so awful on the iPad, but trying to read the teeeeny, tiny letters on the iPhone is a pain in the butt.
Fix please (by Sister meow pants on Thu, 21 Nov 2013 00:08:00)
It constantly signs me out! why isn't there a feature to allow you to stay signed in? I also agree with other reviews about the tiles automatically returning to the start line after a misspelled word. Wish they'd stay put.
I'm an addict!!!! (by DanaNOLA on Wed, 20 Nov 2013 15:16:00)

Too Many "Network Errors"! (by Zmanster4s on Wed, 20 Nov 2013 01:40:00)
Keeps crashing! Seems my paid version is having continual connectivity issues....and I'm sick of it. (And it turns out, all other apps are just fine). Do Not purchase paid version! This must be Fixed or I'll delete. Sluggish! Had this issue for over a month... EA just doesn't care! Seems all 5-star ratings are short...a sign that employees are writing them!
Keep having to sign back in. (by Alison Beynon on Wed, 20 Nov 2013 00:43:00)
Almost Always logs me back out and it's 3 different steps to get back into it. Love the 'teacher' button.
Best Word Game in Apple Store (by PacuRN99 on Tue, 19 Nov 2013 21:57:00)
I really enjoy this app. I have word with friends but prefer to play scrabble. You can play against opponents or computer. You have a dictionary to assist you and finding words to play. I highly recommend adding this game to your apps.
Good (by Serious573 on Tue, 19 Nov 2013 14:54:00)
It's a great game, not sure if it quite lives up to the price tag though.
Network Connection Error (by GrannieBella on Tue, 19 Nov 2013 14:01:00)
My phone shows 4 bars, but Scrabble keeps telling me there is no network connection and won't allow me to play. This happens at least 50% of the time since latest update, never before update. Scrabble has more tech issues than any other app I own. Having to remove the app and reinstall will help for a day or two, but then problem reappears. Disgusted!
David (by Davis 007 on Tue, 19 Nov 2013 04:34:00)
LOVE THIS GAME!!! It is different (and I think way better) than WWF.
SAD (by SurfRider((( on Mon, 18 Nov 2013 18:32:00)
Been playing quite a while. I was an addict. Sad to see this game toilet due to EA and the "CHEAT APP". Not fun anymore. Funny, when I sense a cheat, I will start up a chat and find that most can't even put a full sentence together- yet they can put conjure up "mellifluous"- hmmmm.... Same thing with WORDS WITH FRIENDS. Why play?
Great app (by xjpjicchi on Mon, 18 Nov 2013 18:05:00)
I agree with the previous viewers on how annoying the auto retrieving of the tiles. But I still love this game very much. I've used the app for a while now and I like the fact that I can choose to play in different ways : with a friend or random player, with the computer, etc.
One change, please (by Pastor JF on Mon, 18 Nov 2013 18:01:00)
I love playing scrabble using this app... However, I don't like the new feature in which tiles are automatically returned if it's an invalid word play...
It was BETTER on a PALM IIIC (by GtrGeorgeDC on Mon, 18 Nov 2013 16:12:00)
Sorry, guys, this app is really annoying. I used to have the official Scrabble game on an ancient Palm IIIC, and it worked MUCH better than this. It takes a really long time to boot up, and the user interface is really hard to work with; drag a letter from the rack to the board and HOPE you drop it on the right square, no way to get it right until the board magnifies... As good as the iPod Touch and the iPhone and the iPad are, I would like to hope something as simple as Scrabble would be easier to play.
Scrabble (by 58ammahjongfanatic on Sun, 17 Nov 2013 23:18:00)
I prefer the old layout!!!!!! The new upgraded layout is terrible!!!!!!! Letters are so small & the board. Can't delete old completed games, all just piled up!!!!! Need to log in almost everyday to play!!! If we have to log every time, at least can you make the log in box bigger for people that has bad vision????
SCRABBLE Review from 901th to 950th
Great game (by pucktart on Sun, 17 Nov 2013 20:56:00)

Awesome! If you play Scrabble on Facebook you need this app! (by Gary LaPointe http://GarySaid.com/ on Sun, 17 Nov 2013 20:49:00)
It's the best way to play against my Facebook friends. It uses push alerts to let me know it's my turn. It actually runs a little better on my iPhone than the iPad app (it's easier to dismiss popup messages on iPhone). But the iPad version doesn't constantly ask me to notify my FB friends that it's their turn (this is a bonus). I wish after every turn it didn't ask if I want to notify them via FB :(
So far, so good! (by SkaQueen on Sun, 17 Nov 2013 16:32:00)
This version is the best so far. My honey & I play all the time when I travel for work. It's pretty good!
Good game (by SteveB1031 on Sun, 17 Nov 2013 15:23:00)
Good re-creation of the board game.
British Dictionary!?!! (by TrixieO on Sun, 17 Nov 2013 13:58:00)
This game is not using the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. The computer allows itself all sorts of funky words. British dictionary perhaps? I'm totally annoyed.
listen to your customers (by M_C_B on Sun, 17 Nov 2013 05:18:00)
somewhere there must be a purist who appreciates the automatic recall after a misspelled word, but they are not playing on ios7. Please make this annoying feature optional.

Logs me out every 5 mins rubbish (by Markp17 on Fri, 15 Nov 2013 17:59:00)
Zero support or fixes going on twitter about this to spread the word about this awful app company had enough of this terrible app writing and issues Continually logging me out of origin Loses internet connection !! Network errors !! This app is rubbish you guys don't deserve to claim to be app writers If NSA can spy on the world I am sure you guys can get scrabble not to log me out every few mins You probably don't read reviews but you might if people vote with their wallets !!!
Better than one year ago (by AD<3AD on Fri, 15 Nov 2013 11:42:00)
Totally addicted!! Game is intrinsically better than wwf. Software features are generally better than a year ago, what few bugs are left as not too bothersome.
Scrabble (by Black dg fn on Fri, 15 Nov 2013 10:14:00)
First off, i've been playing since sept 2011, and i've played north of 600 games. So i've seen a lot of changes in this game. Overall, scrabble is a great game. BUT, the game has been ruined by a terrible support network. Origin is the worst. I log in multiple times a day and on a daily basis i see the error that origin is either experiencing difficulties or it cannot connect to a server. Never played wwf, but am about to jump into their game as i hear it is more reliable.

Does EA pay any attention to these reviews? (by Mfreeman2953 on Thu, 14 Nov 2013 20:42:00)
This app is a complete mess. Can someone from EA please provide an update on if/when they plan to fix this buggy app??
Nice, but,,, (by Marsluma on Thu, 14 Nov 2013 17:49:00)
I prefer the older version. Having said that, this is still a great game, and I would recommend it to all my friends.
Brain Food!!! (by Culture(ATL) on Thu, 14 Nov 2013 13:30:00)
Look forward to it everyday!!!
DON'T UPDATE!! (by tamon14 on Thu, 14 Nov 2013 10:15:00)
I wish I'd read the reviews before I updated. The graphics are cluttered and navigation is confusing. I know EA doesn't read these reviews, but once my current games are finished I'm deleting this game.
Scrabble (by Joseph Thome on Wed, 13 Nov 2013 18:37:00)
Terrible. Very hard to download and has twice erased people with whom I had very good games and very much enjoyed and have never been able to reconnect with.
Scabble (by Jbb1960 on Wed, 13 Nov 2013 10:54:00)
New update stinks. E/A has screwed up a good game. Having to login to origin every 5 minutes. Not being able to login to origin. Tiles returning. These things need to get fixed. I didn't pay for this game. I paid for the old one. If your gonna Change it make sure it works before you roll it out. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
Barely Functional (by Dave9674 on Wed, 13 Nov 2013 10:14:00)
It's great when it works, but it has so many connectivity issues that I can only log in to my games about 25% of the time.
Undo the update! (by Momdlv on Wed, 13 Nov 2013 04:58:00)
Not only do I have to sign in every time to play due to network issues, but tiles are returned to the rack if I play an invalid word. I'm not sure the joy of playing is worth the hassle or frustration. Grr!
Give us back....the original (by JSKJR on Wed, 13 Nov 2013 01:02:00)
You had it right the first time You jokers must be the same idiots who produced Obamacare
Poor... (by Bunster17 on Tue, 12 Nov 2013 23:50:00)
It seems this app is getting worse with each update. The returning tiles after a misspelling is, as previously mentioned, annoying at best. I also hate, hate , hate having to log into the ORIGIN almost every time a play needs to be played! Losing interest quickly in an app that is great when working properly
Needs improvements (by Joe5270 on Tue, 05 Nov 2013 18:44:00)
This game would be outstanding if it weren't for the return of letters when a word is misspelled or is not found in the dictionary. A suggestion would be to highlight the squares in a contrasting color.
Nan (by No willpower on Tue, 05 Nov 2013 16:16:00)
Like this version over newest because I prefer to play against computer, and don't play any games on Facebook. But first $.99 version best of all. Change that to " only game I play on Facebook"! Can't get 'nudge' feature on my iPad which has caused forfeit when neither I nor opponent are able to play last tile( s)
Delay? (by Suh-Been on Tue, 05 Nov 2013 12:41:00)
I greatly dislike the new delay when restarting the app. It takes 3-5 seconds before I can even abort & go to the home screen (phone header info with time, carrier etc is also blacked out)!!! I concur with another users review disliking the tiles being returned to the tray when an incorrect word was played, rearranging on ones own would be preferable.
Scrabble (by Harbinger98 on Tue, 05 Nov 2013 04:32:00)
So now the geniuses that market this game send little texts in the middle of the night. Just got one at 12:25AM. Thanks for waking me up. Now go fix the lock-ups.
Scrabble (by Doodles Doggie on Tue, 05 Nov 2013 02:26:00)
New Scrabble game is a disaster. For almost a year now I cannot play with friends, only the computer or total strangers. What used to be a very enjoyable experience is now no fun at all. I thought I would never say this but I actually enjoy Words with Friends more than Scrabble. Zero star rating!!!!
Fun enough (by KristiToye1 on Tue, 05 Nov 2013 02:21:00)
Not a bad way to pass time time.
Logs me out every 5 mins (by Markp17 on Mon, 04 Nov 2013 19:51:00)
Continually logging me out of origin If NSA can spy on the world I am sure you guys can get scrabble not to log me out every few mins You probably don't read reviews but you might if people vote with their wallets !!!
Fun and easy to play with fb friends (by Bennybutt on Mon, 04 Nov 2013 18:35:00)
I love the app but I hate that if I try to play an unacceptable word it automatically returns all of my tiles to me. Please fix this!
Love it (by Dorothypurdy on Mon, 04 Nov 2013 17:08:00)
I am a scrabble lover and this app is great.
Scrabble (by Janiebutt on Mon, 04 Nov 2013 07:16:00)
Love it!! It is my very favorite game. If its good enough for Oprah, it's good enough for me!!
Better than 'Words with friends'- totally agree there should be separate games for 'cheaters'! (by Flash's Mom on Mon, 04 Nov 2013 01:20:00)
Board set up like usual Scrabble. Can be played solo against the computer.
Changes (by Pjarmy on Mon, 04 Nov 2013 00:37:00)
Do not like that all tiles returned when word isn't accepted. The fact that this game takes FOREVER to load each time and will reload again if you use another app for even 1 second!!!
Scrabble (by Nywolfman on Mon, 04 Nov 2013 00:35:00)
I think this version is the best yet.
Playing a word (by mjr59 on Sun, 03 Nov 2013 22:24:00)
Please fix bugs!!!! Hurry hurry. Please!! Leave tiles on board until I remove!!!! Thanks!!! :). I'm trying to be patient.
Cheaters (by Ya opey on Sun, 03 Nov 2013 16:35:00)
As an avid scrabble player I have come to the conclusion that many people who play against me who happens to be an expert player must be using the cheap descrambler to score quickly and, of course, make complicated seven letter words playing for a long time I know this takes time to do. This I think is not A fair way to play in a very respectable game. I suggest a separate way for those "cheaters"to play their way and players like myself, who want to play and hopefully, when fair and square. Maybe there can be separate games or apps for cheaters and apps for players such as myself. Sign Henry De Ruiter
Good game (by Lunch lady O on Sun, 03 Nov 2013 07:57:00)
I love this game. My only complaint is having to sign in all the time. It's so annoying. What's the point?? Please fix this!!
Great (by Vanny the fanny on Sun, 03 Nov 2013 01:52:00)

Great app...BUT an update is needed. I am constantly having to log back in to my account because some unknown entity keeps logging me out. Please fix
Love it! (by Sunbeachlady on Sat, 02 Nov 2013 20:24:00)
This download is a must if you like Scrabble!
New release has been improved but login problem persists (by BocaGear on Sat, 02 Nov 2013 19:27:00)
This program logs out of Origin several times a day. Since auto-login is broken, that means tedious manual logging in. Apparently it logs out every time you change wireless networks, even if you just walk outside and back in. That's REALLY inconvenient. Another issue is that if you leave Scrabble for a few minutes (say, to take a phone call), the game will do all the tedious splash page updates and time wasting instead of going directly to the game you interrupted. I don't know why the hell I waste my effort on these comments. EA clearly couldn't care less. Fie on thee, EA.
Fun game (by Gojowms on Fri, 01 Nov 2013 22:30:00)
This is fun but the computer words are so obscure. I wish I could look up the words.
Unpolite? Really? (by Soplari on Fri, 01 Nov 2013 21:05:00)
It suggests words that aren't words. That's just awful. Unpolite is not a word.

SCRABBLE Review from 951th to 1000th
Excellent functionality and interface (by jjspelman on Fri, 01 Nov 2013 15:27:00)
Just a great game from top to bottom. The graphics are excellent and the game is very stable. Recommend it highly for Scrabble enthusiasts!
I Iove it (by Olaleray on Fri, 01 Nov 2013 11:31:00)
Apart from the annoying need to login every time, I ilove this app
Entire Board Not Visible (by vportly on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 23:48:00)
I have an iPhone 5 and iOS 7. I can not see the bottom 2 rows of the board now. If I zoom in I can see half of the second to last row but can not place tiles. Please fix. Thank you.
Love this game but it's broken! (by LaurenFitch on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 19:56:00)
Stuck forever on loading. Won't show any of my current games.
New Scrabble update fall 2013 (by Rebray on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 15:41:00)
Update Oct 2013 Ditto to other reviews about recall after misspell a word! The next update should separate the recall and play button. I have the 'play' button by mistake when I wanted to 'recall'! Very annoying!
I like it (by Quick tripper on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 15:36:00)
Most recent version has a few irritations. Those might knock it down one star, not four. I would like to see a feature that would indicate on my home screen when it's "my turn" like when I have a new email or a voicemail.
Mystery badges keep popping up (by Frozoloft on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 13:52:00)
I would turn off alerts, but I need to know when my turn is up. So now i have to keep getting these mystery badges on a daily basis and i cant tell if its my move or not, so i always have to be opening the app. Just not worth the annoyance. Id prefer to use the classic game of Scrabble, but looks like I'll be sticking with Words With Friends.
Problems (by Doodle holic on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 12:27:00)
I have to keep signing in and it keeps logging off. Games I have started are just disappearing.

FB be d@mned (by Pdubdd on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 02:06:00)
Forcing me to sign into FB for an app I paid for is bad. Not making that clear in the description is deceitful.
Hooked (by Mikeylikeslemons on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 01:45:00)
Don't start if you're afraid of addiction.
Not crazy about this game (by Jennh1954 on Thu, 31 Oct 2013 01:33:00)
I too have a 1 that I cannot get rid of. Also when you play against the computer It uses words unknown such as when I enter quiz or hero it places an S in front of word so new word from the computer is squiz or Shero. No wonder the computer wins most of the games.
Updated version is awful!!! (by shackga on Wed, 30 Oct 2013 15:19:00)
Can't force forfeit! Have 3 day old abandoned games and can't do anything. Please fix the glitch.
Please STOP asking me if I want to chat! I don't. (by Catherine Conine on Wed, 30 Oct 2013 02:22:00)
Not interested in Facebook.
Fun, but.... (by Quisty3 on Tue, 29 Oct 2013 18:32:00)
Would be nice if it came with instructions on how to play alone. Finally figured it out and now I have 2 games with slow opponents that I want to get rid of, but have to forfeit to do so. Time constraint as suggested would be good. Freezes up and annoying to have to keep expanding the screen when entering a word.
Super! (by janpz on Tue, 29 Oct 2013 15:34:00)
This is my favorite version of the word game. The play is great. It is just like the game I grew up with. Unlike WWF, where my opponent and I always seem to have all vowels or all consonants, I always get a realistic mix of letters on draws, just as in the actual board game. A couple of my friends have complained that scores are not as high as in WWF. The board is designed differently. Both players are on the same board, so it's a level playing field. It's just the other board is designed to stroke your ego with bloated scores. It's like grade inflation. Everyone gets an "A" in WWF. I honestly never noticed the difference until a friend complained. Other minor advantages to this game: the list of two-letter words allowed by the dictionary; the "teacher" that shows you how you could have made a better score (or that you did great!) after your turn; and no constant attempts to extract money from users with in-app purchases. Thanks, Scrabble! As with so many others, I hate the tiles flying back into my rack when a word is invalid. Often, changing one letter us all I needed. It extends game time unnecessarily. That's my one complaint with the new update.
Great game. Stable. Addicting. (by L Dub on Tue, 29 Oct 2013 14:30:00)
I love the teacher feature. It's expanding my vocabulary.
Disappointed (by Shannon219 on Tue, 29 Oct 2013 06:13:00)
I am very disappointed with this game. While I think the actual game is fun it will not allow me to connect to Facebook in order to play with my friends-a reason I purchased the app. Frustrating!!!
Good fun (by emks on Tue, 29 Oct 2013 03:09:00)
I really like this game. The update has fixed the little bugs that I found and it works fine now. And, the updated features are really nice, like itʻs easier to select the letters to use for the blanks now.
Have to login into origin again and again (by NfromMN on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 22:34:00)
How many times do I have to login to origin? Seems like at least once / day. Very annoying. Also why can't it remember and auto enter username? This app lacks polish, usability testing, and quality testing. Whenever to app is updated, always seems like 2 steps forward, 3 steps back...
Good but could be lot better. (by mullenation on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 22:00:00)
Take some cues from Words With Friends in terms of navigation and functionality. Everything takes way too long to do. Put a Submit button after pressing Play to avoid inadvertent plays. Stop giving me a badge icon when it's not my turn!!!
Spanish (by Gabriela Salles on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 21:19:00)
The spanish vocabulary is not real and it does not match the dictionary with the words you enter
Don't like update (by Zoo Peeps on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 18:27:00)
I liked the old version. What happened to the teacher feature? Please return.
Better than WWF (by clareware on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 16:58:00)
Works well, type in entry. Requires manual refresh however.
Stability improving, but still needs work (by Soi2k on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 14:05:00)
The app works well most of the time, but requires me to log in to Origin more than I would like. Things seem to have improved of late, particularly in the way of not crashing, but the login thing continues to be an issue on an almost daily basis.
💜 It (by MichelleTin on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 03:19:00)
My husband & I play it all the time. A fun past time.
Scrabble Review -- BAD (by NCBSAM on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 02:47:00)
Lots of problems keeping a game going. You have to go into Facebook or Origins repeatedly to find your games that are in progress and sometimes they won't appear.
Auto logging failing - SLOW (by Huzbund on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 01:51:00)
Considering a different app. The autologging feature fails 75 % of the time. Incredibly slow to load. TAKES FOREVER!!!
How about some customer support? (by Mitchapotamus on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 00:48:00)
Is anybody else tired of constantly having to log in with Origin every time you want to make a move? Auto login does not work, even though the app recognized my screen name. What is wrong with these people. No stars. Boo!
Good mental exercise (by Peterxy on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 00:39:00)
Fun way to get the brain engaged.
Alotta potential! (by DeAnza Days on Mon, 28 Oct 2013 00:03:00)
Good: tile tracker. Bad: auto retrieval of misspelt words is gonna give me carpal tunnel. (FWIW, rescind that & I will add at least two stars.) Also, I never log out on purpose, and yet I have to log in just to see if it's my turn (at least on a non-FB game). Still, it's light years beyond WordFeud or Words With Friends.
OkieDokie (by frsalomon on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 21:00:00)
As good a time-waster as any other app. Just wish my grandmother was alive so I could play her.

What is wrong with Origin? (by modephus on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 18:37:00)
I repeat. What is wrong with Origin? Will not stay logged in.
No issues with the latest version (by Chinooki on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 17:09:00)
But I don't play online.
Login issue needs to be fixed (by Stooooooook on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 16:52:00)
Having to log in at least once every day. Please fix this. Also, would prefer that tiles did not return to the rack after an invalid word. Those issues aside, I enjoy playing.
Scrabble (by Awaiting4 on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 10:23:00)
I like the teacher feature. Not happy with new feature of tiles returning automatically. Otherwise great game. I'm addicted.
Works well (by K Gateman on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 04:59:00)
Teacher feature is annoyingly helpful, but I'm addicted anyway.
Please redo this version soon! (by misobella on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 03:46:00)
Update to original review. -Now the app is calculating wrong!!! I covered a triple word score tile with a word, and then it was my opponents turn. He played a word that used the already covered triple word score, yet the app STILL tripled his score!! He should have received 10 points, yet he got 30 points. So mad! I hate to say it, but thinking of switching to a competitors game. My entire family was addicted to the previous version all last winter. It was great! No complaints. Complaints now include: -terrible gold colored graphics, makes it look cheesy and cheap, rather than classic -can not force forfeit or nudge-even though it is supposed to be automatic, I have games sitting for weeks -sometimes it will log me out and not allow me to log back in -the teacher icon used to be awesome and funny, now cheesy -remove the obnoxious first section that tries to get you to play with people you have played with before; wastes my space, annoys, I am not 5 yrs old, stop trying lame FB tactics -no option for notifications -dictionary erases entire word when just trying to change a letter I am sure you have a copy of the old version. Please re-implement it! It was really great how it was.
Scrabble - good and bad (by x-fiddler on Sun, 27 Oct 2013 01:42:00)
I like playing with multiple people - like the dictionary feature - don't like the return of my letters with invalid words and don't like conversion to upper case when you x out a letter in the dictionary. Would be more fun if you could exchange a played blank with it's designated letter.
Great Game (by Decay Doc on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 16:22:00)
The game is true to the original game and is user friendly. It would be nice to have a choice of dictionaries. I have no issues with the update.
Dictionary (by lynndictionary on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 16:08:00)
I like to play against CPU so more variations there would be nice. That would be gravy, still enjoy the game a lot.
Favorite Game (by Trudy wilcox on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 15:29:00)
Best game ever, I've been playing it every day for a year
Upgrade - thumbs down (by Swift311 on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 15:02:00)
1. Auto recall is annoying. Just leave the letters on the board please. 2. When the letters are recalled, they are not returned to its original placement. Please stop that. That's what shuffle is for. 3. Restarting the app whenever I navigate from one to another is annoying.
Better than words with friends! (by BarbaraKeefe on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 13:48:00)
Love this scrabble game! So user friendly, with a great dictionary and 2 letter words at your fingertips. The traditional board is great too. Lots of folks to play with and the professor is a great learning tool! Love it!!
Logged Out (by DShampine on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 12:25:00)
It's a great game, though I don't like that if you misspell a word the tiles go back automatically. It's more frustrating to get constantly logged out of the game and have to sign in. Don't buy it if they won't fix it. It's super annoying to have to log in every time you take a turn.
Fabulous! (by Ccfourcats on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 05:05:00)
The newest update returns the letters after misspelling a word. It's a bad feature. Give us back the control to change it or return it ourselves!
