Words With Friends
Love this game. While meeting and playing with strangers, some are so good and some are not so good. But the longer you play, the more tips you'll get, the more goofy- jumbles of letters REALLY ARE A WORD! You learn new words all the time. Some people are so good they are annoying. I just try to make the best words I can, even though I "apparently" have letters to make a word that would give me twice the points as the one I have already figured out. I will not spend hours looking for "just the right ubiquitous word to maximize my word point." I do the best I can and just have fun with it.
The new version totally obliterated the find word feature. Now when you hit the “Go” button, no words show up just a bunch of lines on top of each other, some numbers but zero letters. What happened??!! I tried multiple times to delete and re-load the app, but it’s still scrambled beyond recognition so that it is unusable. There should be minus stars for the upgrade.
Developer Response ,
Sorry for the problem. It seems my last update introduced a problem for people who have set their devices to use larger text on the screen. I'm working on a fix now.
If you want to use the app before my update is released, you can set smaller text in the 'Settings' app (go to "Display & Brightness", then "Text Size”). Sorry once again, I’ll have the fix released as soon as I can - Richard
THE BEST, still.
I've tried 'em all and there's no comparison. The best $1.99 I've spent on an app. I've used Word Finder since 2011. July 9, 2018 - Still using the app & I still have NO complaints - it’s great.
UPDATE: Yep. Still the best. Actually, I gave up trying to find a comparable app.
May 5, 2019. ~ I love the integration of dictionaries.

My wish would be that when you want to find a word that begins with the letter C for example, that you can enter Cxxxxxx and get ONLY words that BEGIN with the letter C rather than the app providing words in which the letter is second, third or last. I'd like to see a notification that reads 'There are no words that begin with letter C'. Just a suggestion. Other than that, it's almost perfect.
