Can’t make it past level 14

I love this game and had it for a few years now. I do have a major gripe with it though.... No matter how many times I have played this game, I can’t get past level 14... can anyone else? It seems to just shoot out the red circles of death continuously after like, level 10 and it gets worse from 11 to 14, you just don’t get enough time to get rid of them al even if you make words with multiple red circled letters, plus it seems like the game also seals your fate by putting out more and more Xs and Zs and Qs! The makers of this game really should slow up on the red circled letters and allow more vowels... oh and don’t limit the three letter words, we should be able to use them when and if we can!

Getting Old

I've been playing this game a long time! What is really getting on my nerves, is that once you reach about level 14, it starts throwing "X"s & "Z"s at you. It sets you up, that you cannot win at all – it's not even possible. You can be Miriam freakin' Webster and you will not win this game. In other words, it's not fair. For that reason, I'm getting quite tired of this potentially great game. Resolve for this problem would be to just suddenly crash, or, just make a statement that I'm too smart for you. God forbid, that I should reach some kind of "level 22".

Word Abacus Crashes in IOS 12.1 On iPhone 10S Max

Word Abacus crashes, can't close the app or open other apps. The only recourse is to turn off the iPhone. I also uninstalled and reinstalled Word Abacus, but it acts the same. After reinstalling, a message popped up suggesting I upgrade to the premium version of the app for $1.99, but when I clicked on the button yup upgrade, nothing happened, as the app froze again. I could not close the app, or open other apps.

I recently uninstalled sand reinstalled the app. I was asked again to Bb pay for the upgrade. When I did, a meagre pooped up saying I already paid for it and it v was installed again. It still freezes my iphone 10S Max, and the only remedy is to shut down three phone, and then turn === on the phone. Please fix this bug!
