Love it so easy lots of fun to play
SCRABBLE Premium App Reviews
It seem to take less time to load when logging in there Facebook. But I really hate that when I go to check a spelling of a word, I have to see the last players tiles come on the screen over and over. I would prefer nothing or just highlight their tiles
Too many ads
I wish the chat feature could be disabled. If you play competitively, your chat box gets filled with messages from your opponent accusing you of cheating. It’s soured my appetite for the game.
One of the most frustrating apps I have ever used. It fails to remember my log in info, it freezes up and only solution seems to be to delete it and then download again. So time consuming. The dictionary choices are poor, do not recognize such words as “zen” or more modern words, it’s very old school in that respect. It doesn’t recognize many many words. It makes me want to tear my hair out! If I didn’t love scrabble so much I would ditch it in a heart beat. I do love that I can play with my good friend two states away....that is the only cool thing so gave it one lonely star.
I HATE games that depend on external accounts for full functionality, and this is one of them. You can’t play online with specific people unless you and they both log in through the facebook or “Origin”, whatever that is. So I dropped $7.99 on this game for nothing. Hugely disappointed. ???
Is the iPhone version of the game programmed to give human users (playing against the computer) as many letter Us and I’s as possible? Im serious; hardly a game goes by that I am not given 3 or 4 Us and I’s, often at the same time, turn after turn. Guaranteed by the end of the game I will have more Us and I’s in my tray than any other letters. It just does not seem random.
New update is working fine most of the time - occasionally really slow to process I like the way the score remains on the word you created so you can consider your options. I preferred the old version teacher with the varied facial expressions. Still it is a fun game to play.
Love Scrabble, but...
Sometimes has difficulty connecting to available network, requiring a reinstall. The price we pay to play the game we love.

Cool for past time
Very relaxing n u also get to use your brain to think.
Ive loved Scrabble for a very long time. Its sad to see this game get the notorious "EA" treatment. Its not worth the buy if an iOS 6 interface, forced tutorials, tiny dictionary or having "sign into Facebook" buttons everywhere and on popup modals bothers you.
Worse with every update
Dont update as it became unusable after update! Update: now working fine
Scrabble Premium is a big improvement. Previous bugs have been fixed and the app is fun to use!
Feb 2018: Hurrah! This is a more robust program. It no longer randomly fails to function. Good work team! I can play Scrabble and count in the software to work smoothly. It just plain doesnt work. I can get to my games by adding a new game against a random player and then hitting next. I have lost access to at least half my games even so. 2013 In 2017, this is still a poor product. Different failings, but continued unreliable. If you wish to play, expect to delete and reinstall frequently. It is still better than the FB version, but quality is very poor.
Newest update has a terrible algorithm ! On the first draw get two or even three double same letters and often get a three same letter in the mix. Makes it impossible to play when you get double letters in everything. Newest update=newest suckage.
Awesome and stable
The app is finally stable and the game play is consistent. Highly recommend this original word game.
I dont like how it replays the opponents last move if you do anything off the board (such as check the dictionary). Its unnecessary and wastes time. Otherwise a generally good app.
The game works okay but the notification wont go away after I have taken my turn. This is obnoxious. I sent in a big report a week ago and no response. Hoping maybe writing the review will make the notification go away. Update February 2018 - just deleted and reinstalled game because games won’t load... Update as of July 2017 - now there are no notifications when the other player has played their turn. Why does this game have to always be broken? Update Dec 2017 - I have to delete and reinstall this game on my iPhone at least once a month because the games won’t load or notifications stop working. It would be awesome if this game worked. This has been going on for years.
