852954_2Newtoy, developers of Chess With Friends [App Store] recently released Words With Friends App Store] bringing the same asynchronous multiplayer to the game of Scrabble (basically).

Chess With Friends has become remarkably popular among Chess players, since it's both free and offers a modern spin on correspondence chess. Words With Friends takes this same formula and offers four different multiplayer game modes.

You can either search for users to play with using your contact list, or search by user name. If you don't know anyone with the game yet, you can play a random opponent. Finally, Words With Friends also has a mode for local play if you want to play against a friend using a single device.

Like Chess With Friends you can have multiple games going at once with both friends and random internet players. While push notifications aren't supported yet, you can either just launch the app to see if it's your turn yet, or enable email/SMS notifications. A recent tweet by Newtoy mentions push notifications coming soon for Chess With Friends, so I'd assume the same treatment will be coming soon for Words With Friends.

Either way, both games are free and supported via in-game advertising and Words With Friends has a premium version for 99¢ that you can buy if you want to support the developer and/or don't like looking at ads. If you like Chess or Scrabble, both games are a ton of fun.

    Someone already brought asynchronous multiplayer to the game of Scrabble: Scrabble. How does Newtoy plan on getting away with such a blatant ripoff?

      • billy

        ya well atleast apple doesnt suck as bad as all android phones with the lack of security n bugs n fragmentation with ur os...you get what you pay for so if ur poor n want to have something similar to the iphone bc everybody is copying off it bc we all know apple is the one who invented the first touch smartphone then get a droid but if you can afford to have the best then buy apple n thats why consumer reports still to this day claims that apples products are the best devices in their class plain n simple

        For certain apps sure we'll have to restart once in a while and most of us can probably understand why. Windoze users do it for almost everything, period. BTW, sweet DASHBOARD on 7. Absolute brilliance.

    Push is on the way according to the developer. Great game. Bought the pro version to get rid of those annoying ads. Can't figure out how to end a game though. How does one win??

    • skittles

      The person wins who gets down to the last letters and each person spells until both players start passing. I have noticed you can pass twice and it will send with a winner. These games arent timed so I've had games I been playing since Friday, we each make a word when we have time. I dont mind it it works, other way to end game is to resign. Love this game, one of the best free apps on the iphone.

    Does anyone know how to force the end of a game? I'm playing with someone who got to the very last letter and won't respond or pass. Is there a time limit?

    • tom

      their is a time limit if someone doesnt respond after a certain amount of time it will automatically end game. but dont forget you can always start another game, you dont have to wait to finish that game.... multiple games can be ran at the same time.

      • Bob

        It's been 15 days since my opponent last played. It would be nice to just get the game out of the Queue.

    • Lisa

      mine has seriously been up for 31 days and its bugging me, i need to know too!

      it's ridiculous.

      • Dino

        i have games that have been waiting for a player response for 80+ days, so get used to having a looong queue.

  • john lemmer

    it doesen't know words like acia berry or bioagents. what gives?

    • mike

      maybe because its spelled "acai" and you can't add berry to it because it would be 2 words; and you can't use hyphenated word like bio-hazard...

      • Debbie

        biohazard is one word

    • Tim

      also, bioagent is a shortening of the two words biological agent, and therefore, can't be used.

    • Imabelieber 03

      Well maybe that's because you spelled it wrong, buddy! It's acai berry, not acia berry. Or perhaps you could try looking that word up in the dictionary that words with friends is based off of. It might not be in there! Isn't that one a shocker! (not!)

    My first game was against myself - playing as Player 2

    My main character scored 322
    My "Player 2" scored 282

    I was informed that Player 2 beat me!

    • Benny

      Whoever uses all their letters first gets points from the total value of the losers letters and subtracts from them too.

      • Phitnathan

        OK I just had a game end with both of us having a score of 371 and it says I won. Now I had a score of 372 with one tile left worth 1 point. The other person had a score of 367 then played his last tile for 3 points. So he got the point for my tile left and i got the point subtracted. The game ended with the same score but it says I won. I am pissed I want to win this one out right lol.

      • http://wordswithfriendsmytips.blogspot.com/ henry

        In case of a tie the winner is the player who was ahead before the last play.

    More bad news.

    No matter who ends up with the higher score, the 'winner' seems to be the player who plays the last tile.

    This has happened in five different games.

    As an app, this needs more - or rather, some - beta testing.

    • medubs

      just a thought, in scrabble when the last tile is played the remaining tiles are added up in the other players hand and subtracted from their overall score as a penalty- maybe that happened?

        the little pictures are from another app emojicons. you can use them in texts and such. only people with iphones can see them though. there are some that you pay for and there are some for free. they are the same, i was suckered and bought one for $.99 and later found the same one for free. it's fun though.

      if you lightly run your finger over the specific game a delete box will show up on the right side.

        Are you running a 3GS?
        I have games over 3 weeks old now that the opponent has not made a move and yeah I have also seen a win made with the last tile played, not by score.
        Of course, I love the game, am addicted and have recruited family & friends too!

      I would love to know what "a reasonable amount of time" is for an opponent to play. The "DELETE slide" does not work unless the game is over. If anyone finds out what "reasonable" is, please post. Two weeks should be more than enough in my humble opinion.

    The board is actually based on Literati, not scrabble. Similar game to scrabble, but the scoring/points per letter/number of letters per set and stuff like that is a bit different.

    I installed ver 3.04 which had an option to have game send a text message informing me that it was my turn. I keep getting texts even though the game is over. The app has updated to ver 3.05 which does not have an option for text messaging. This means that I can't turn the messaging off and keep getting text which I have to pay for!

    LOve 'Words with Friends' but I think there's a few bugs to be ironed out....

    Why oh why would the game not accept the words 'GOT' and 'DO' .. I've thought I've always spelt them the correct whey!!!!!!!!

    • Maureen

      perhaps you were inadvertently make another word that was not valid when you played the 'tiles' to create 'got' and / or 'do'

    • Imabelieber 03

      Ummmm........ you spelled "spelt" wrong. It's "spelled" and "whey" is actually "way", if you never knew that

    I have this game for iPhone 3G, I can NOT see any of the words that I or an opponent put on the board, I've uninstalled and re-installed a few times, even purchased the paid version, still can nOt see letters in tiles, I can see blank tiles, does anyone know how to solve or fix this problem?

    • karissalm

      took me awhile on this one too. found out the answer by accident. place the blank tiles on the board then you will be able to choose the letter you want it to be. blank tiles are "wild" or "free" tiles.

    I have noticed that fe and za are not accepted even tho they are accepted in Tournament Scrabble. Why is that?
    These two words were the difference in winning and losing two games.
    Still REALLY fun and adictive game!!

       ZA worked for me. One of those 2 letter words you just know is a word from experience playing, like QI.

  • Pilotouno

    Love the game. My biggest beef is that the support is an utter waste of time. I have had questions into support that date back 3 months and have never been addressed. And just this past week they closed several of my oldest Qs with a solved stamp. That was news to me since I never, ever heard a thing from them.

    I've been playing the free app and decided to buy the paid-for one, but every time I try to download it I get a message about a problem the the artwork. I can't get beyond this point. If I try to buy it again it says (correctly) that I've already bought it.

    How do I get past this?

    Thanks,

    • tonya

      you have to delete the app and then re-install. you won't have to pay for it again. i did this and i haven't experienced anymore issues.

    I bought the pay version the other day and have had a problem, it has said
    "Updating..... This may take a few minutes." Ever since I got it, and that was Friday night. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this?
    Thanks!!

    • Anthony

      Ever since i bought the paid version my iPhone also says "Updating….. This may take a few minutes." Then after a few minutes it shuts the app off and goes back to my main screen.
      WHATS UP?!?!?!?!?!?!?! This is my favorite game. This needs to be fixed ASAP

      • johon

        I have this same thing, I can seem to stop it from "updating" i have even reinstalled the app on my ipod. I think it has something to do with the network.

      • Kelsey

        I HAVE THE SAME THING HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's my favorite game now and i can't even play it!!

        I am having the same problem and their website won't launch. I paid for the ap and can't use it. Someone please figure this out!

      • Carol Cetrone

        same problem here, anyone have an answer ?? I haven't been able to play for 2 days now !!

      • Gingerbreadman

        Had that same "Updating, this could take a few minutes" Couldn't play for the last three days or more. No matter how long I WAITED it just kept saying Updating...

        I unselected it in itunes and resynced. Then reselected it and resynced again. No change. I deleted it from the iPod Touch by pressing and holding its icon. Then downloading it fresh from the app store. It then started to complain about the login. I knew the email address I was using was correct. It talked about a password but didn't have an option to enter one and I didn't recall what it was. I used the reset password option and they sent me a link via email to click on. The link didn't work (it was broken across multiple lines). When I pasted the link together and it loaded, I realised that it was for chess with friends instead of words with friends, though I got it via words with friends. Link still wouldn't load and said it was currently unavailable. Just retried the email a couple more times in the app itself and then I was back to were I started with the "Updating...." etc message. I groaned, but shortly after this all my games suddenly magically appeared again. They all said that I hadn't played in three days which sounded right. Have now played them all and it's like nothing happened. Everything back to normal. I have no idea what the problem was or which part of what I did (if anything) had anything to do with it suddenly working again. I suspected it was a problem at their end, but searching online showed lots of people claiming that their copy still worked so I assume it was at my end, I just don't know what.

        Fingers crossed it keeps working and whilst it does I'll not waste any more time thinking about it for now. Was frustrating enough.

        Games die by themselves if they haven't been played for a while but it takes about 3-4 weeks for them to be cancelled. Strangely it initially declared the other person (who was the one not taking their turn) to have forfeitted and lost but now in the finished games it says that they beat me. Heh....

    • JOYCE SMITH

      I'm having the same problem. It started on the free version so I purchased the paid version and it worked fine for a few days but now it is doing the same thing. It appears to be updating everytime I try to start it and then that just shuts off.

      • iamLhyn

        I'm having the same problem! I have people waiting & it has been updating for over 24 hours! I was wondering if I had too many games going at once? Very frustrating!

    • Brokenhauser T. Litenslaughen

      I got the same thing with the paid version. I never could play on the paid version. Then after two weeks the free version stopped playing too, but its symptoms were different. When I tried to open the free version it momentarily opened for a few seconds and then crashed out of the app.

      I deleted the paid version thinking it was affecting the free version but it didn't solve the problem. I wrote customer service but so far no one has responded. They must know this problem exists so they should at least let their customers know something. I paid $2.99 for the paid version that I deleted, and now I'm wondering how I can reinstall it without paying another $2.99. And I have no assurance that if I download the paid version it will work either.

      I have an iTouch 3G and all other apps work fine. This is the first app I've had problems with. Does their customer service read these forums, or do they just sit back and rake in all the money for making a product that doesn't work!!!!

    You can delete your idle games yourself...just slide your finger tip on the right side of that games notice and a red delete bar will appear..tap it and its gone.

      I do not have a red bar anywhere on my idle games to allow me to resign or stop them. When I tap on the right side of the notice it only brings up the game itself and the only option is the little flag for "resign" at the bottom.
      When I try to use that, it says this cannot happen unless it is my turn but that if the opponent is a random choice then it will be automatically resigned after a "reasonable" amount of time. Exactly what is that????

    THis is a very fun game, however it does have a few bugs that can be annoying. I had this on my I-phone for several months, and just started playing pass n play with my girl. Very fun...until the end, when whom ever plays the last tile, wins regardless of score, and this is taking into account the tiles remaining in hand. This I know cause I am usually way ahead of my girlfriend and yet I lose. Oh well...we just begin keeping track of the score towards the end......Its too bad they don't update and correct this flaw, however I suspect their energies are focused elsewhere.

    I have my doubts about the support group for newtoy though... I opened a support ticket for how to deal with an abusive user, and 12 days later the ticket is still in queue and has not been looked at by anybody. Noticed it today as Words has been down now for over a day (well, at least my wife or I can't access it - been trying to start a random game for over 14 hours now....). Nothing really informative on the Newtoy web site to give us any status.

    I've been trying to play this game for a week now and I haven't able to because it would always shut down after loading. The app will load, it will say "updating" and show you the games it loaded from last time. But when it fully updated it will just shut down. And I bought the app too, so it's not just happening to the free version. I hope they will fix it, and do it soon; like I said, I haven't been able to play for over a week.

    • Jenn

      Same thing keeps happening to me, I can't figure it out! I keep turning it off and back on and it still just closes like 30 seconds after I open it everytime!! I'm getting really annoyed!

      • Jen

        I'm having the same issue! i purchased the "pay" version and it doesn't work either. i might try to uninstall both of them then reinstall the pay version. Please let me know if you find another fix. i restarted my phone twice. this just started happening yesterday.

  • snoozy

    It's a great app and have had none of the problems on my 3G that everyone is mentioning here. I've easily found my friends & vice versa, I've never seen a game won by a low score, and as far as taking words - any word that you can find in the online Scrabble Dictionary at http://www.hasbro.com will work in this game - and that is straight from Merriam Websters. The thing that baffles me is how does this app INSTANTLY find a random player, even in the middle of the night? Will it someday choose me as the random player for someone else?

    • Lora

      I think it only assigns games to other people looking for random opponents. I requested a random opponent once and the message said that one would be assigned when one was available.

    For the last 24 hours I have been unable to use the wwf ap because it keeps "updating" and then closing. What do I do?

    Anyone getting the "updating..." problem, honest - you need to delete the app and then download it again from the store. If you use the same e-mail address as before then it will fix things. I was pretty worried my app was knackered for ever earlier this evening but it's ok now.

    What would I like to see? Surely the creation of mini-leagues, world rankings and all that sorta thing would be good? If the games are being saved on the server then the final results could surely be incorporated into league tables and the like.

    Finished a game and picked rematch, came up with new board and tiles. Then dumped me out. I went back in and a different new game with a different player but same tiles was there. After this, it goes into "update" and then kicks me out. I cannot get it to stay in the game and continue all my other games. Grrrr. I tried rebooting my phone, syncing and updating to latest game version, nothing has helped.

    Ok, its been about 4 days now that it just quit loading. I restored my iphone and now when I try to start it, I get "Updating ... This may take a few minutes". It goes more than a few minutes, and then closes.

    Incredible! Can't we get a fix for this?

    And if you delete it and add it back, you don't have to pay to download it again whoever posted that. If you login using the same itunes account, it says "you have previously installed it, want to install it again?"

    If anyone has a fix for this let me know please! Don't they have an official site?

    Words with Friends has a recurring glitch where it can shut itself down while trying to load. It kicks you back to the iPhone main menu, shutting WwF off. It makes the program unusable, often for days.

    Anyone know if there's a customer service for this or should I just delete the damn thing?

    • tim

      I was having the same problem: "updating" then shuts off. I don't know if it is coincidence, but I dleted my finished games, then I started a game with the "PASS and PLAY" that you access with the '+' sign in the top corner (you play against yourself). I played the first word, which it allowed me to do. Then as Player 2, it kept on shutting off...so I 'Resigned' as Player 2....then under my username I deleted that game from the bottom of my screen. Now everything seems fixed (for now!)........I hope this works for someone else.

    Sorry for being harsh but what exactly is the point in playing if you are just going to cheat by letting some website come up with the answers for you. This isn't a cash game and you don't gain any ranking by winning so what is to be gained by cheating? Do you also win at chess by entering your opponents moves into a PvC chess program.

    • ScrabbleVet

      How can you tell if someone is cheating?

      I've played a lot of "old school" Scrabble (face to face on a board) against seasoned opponents. There are a lot of words in the English language and they know them. I've had a lot of opponents with vast vocabularies and are familiar with the contents of the Scrabble dictionary. Yeah, I been spanked plenty and am a better player for it. Maybe you're running into some of them in WWF?

    I would love to play this on my Android against my other iPhone/Android friends but alas, short sightedness on the part of an Application Development company leaves an entire customer base untapped.

    And to all you iPhone fans out there, before you start bashing Android, or me, telling me to get an iPhone, it'll never happen because of Apple's closed business attitude. Apple's iPhone is good, like a Toyota Prius, just not Android, like a custom built Hot Rod. ...relax, just poking some fun...

    Can your iPhone do this, all at the same time? (Stream Internet Radio, Bluetooth the audio to your car stereo, Video record yourself talking about this entire multi-tasking ability of the Android, upload the video to YouTube, and post the YouTube link to Facebook, all without stopping your streaming music being BT'd to your stereo: car drivers do not attempt. :) My Sprint Samsung Moment does this. All across Sprint's 3G. Now add 4G, the HTC EVO and imagine the possibilities, like adding the Notion Ink's Adam device with the EVO...my mouth waters...

    Games aren't everything but ones like this app, exercise the brain and I'm down for that. Please port to Android. :)

      Tap and slide then press delete. Same way you would delete a SMS on the iphone.

    Hi,

    Does anyone have the problem of the "eyes" in the game disappearing?

    Wondering if anyone knows how this can be resolved. Tried reinstalling the app but it does not seem to work.

    Thanks

    To Dino (March 29): At the very bottom of the WwF opening page, scroll down and click on the ? mark, then click on the rules to the game. You get a 35-pt bonus when you use all 7 tiles in any one-turn.
    To Claire (April 10): In the Announcements section under "Bugs" behind that ? mark at the bottom, it says:
    "April 11 - Many of you have noticed recently that the eyeballs are missing. They didn't just stop working, they've actually not been working for awhile now. They were broken sometime last month and were visible to players who themselves were looking at a given game board, instead of being visible to players whose OPPONENTS were at the game board. So we temporarily disabled them until we correct the problem. Rest assured that they WILL be back."

    If you get stuck on updating, you need to restart your iphone to clear up the network connection ... it usually happens to me when i loose the internet connection temporarily when i got outside too far from my router and no internet enabled application will work until you reboot and are in range of the internet (either wi-fi or 3g/edge)

    No issues here...thank god. I'd be really p-d if I did cause this game is too fun. I have a question though. Do any of u have a roblem with people using app tools to help them find words to use. It makes me crazy when someone comes up with some obscure word and u just KNOW that one was not in their vocabulary!!!

    • Pinky

      Yeah my sister always does that she just makes up words... she doesn't look them up, but she just makes up random words and sometimes they come out being words... its pretty annoying....and not in their vocabulary

      • Honeygabby

        It is even worse when you put in a word that you know is a genuine, real word.... and it is disallowed.

    I have noticed that sometimes it is the player who plays the last tile that wins regaurdless of the score, and other times it is the player with more points after the last tile is played r...what's the deal?

    • Mail

      The value of the letters left on your rack when your opponent finishes will count double for them. The value of your tiles left are deducted from your score and the same number added to theirs. So if there are only a few points between you then play the higher value letters first because the value of your remaining letters count DOUBLE against you at the end!

    Many thanks with regard to the information, I am really looking forward to the Samsung Epic 4G, although I have constantly been pretty curious in cool gadgets, for a long time I have already been searching for my 1st smartphone and I did not acquire it yet. The explanations are really simple: each several of months there is a revolution in the industry (difficult to decide!) and prices right here in Brazil are very abusive. Maybe I would enter this world in wonderful style with a Samsung Epic 4G. I hope so.

    During an "update" one game was moved from the active section to the "game over" section and given a red circle with a line through it. The game was given to my opponent, although it was less than a quarter done.

    Does anyone know why this would occur?

    • Henry Barnett

      That means that the game is corrupt on their server. It is lost for good.

    • Selby

      You have to turn off your music volume as well.

  • Tom

    Addicted for sure. Good at the game too. Do mostly random opponents and have met some really cool competition that play hard, don't resign, and stick to it no matter how bad a game is going. Players that resign and go away I understand. Those that leave you hanging with two letters to go are so childish and exhibit such passive aggressive behavior it's laughable. "I'm going to take my ball and go home." What ever happened to the spirit of competition?
