    Is garbage...spaz's out and crashes randomly all the time. What a crappy *** port as fast as you can get something out. Limited settings and UI is clunky and doesn't go with Win Phone 8.

    What a waste of money.

    Same applies to Draw Something, which is even worse. These apps should be pulled in my opinion. Luckily for me, I am able to use the free version w/ Nokia, but no one should have to pay for such crap. The apps should be pulled until they are fixed.

    Its even worse that they just threw these apps together quickly, with clearly not much testing or a give a crap, and put them out there just to have them out there. They are both so frustrating to play, I gave up.

    I guess that's why it was free then.

    They have the same app for non-Nokia folks, and are charging for it. Correct me if im wrong.

    The charge versions are no ads. But yeah, the free ones are nokia only. And it does lock up occasionally...actually only thing that has locked my phone up...

    I posted this in another thread. I think that WWF was the main cause for my phone lockups and horrid battery life. Much improved after I uninstalled it. I just dont think it was optimized yet to run on a different platform. used to work best on IOS and somewhat buggy on Android, but worthless on WP8 in my opinion.

    Totally agree. WWF on WP is a FAIL! It's laggy, and worst of all, it looks like an iOS app.

    Get Wordfeud instead. It's much, much better in my opinion.

    This x1000. So much better and works great. Plus, no annoying ads you have to click out of.

    Interesting note, my brother has an iPhone 4, and he says words with friends has been having problems since the update for the i5. So it may not just be WP8 having problems.

    I can confirm that WWF 5.4 version is bad even on my iPhone4. This latest version has some messed up games list and is slow too.

    I hope this won't be the case on the Lumia 810 I plan on getting tomorrow, because I'm a faithful Words with Friends user. :(

    Good evidence it isn't just us having problems then.

    Hold the volume key and power button at the same time, that'll perform a soft reset. I've had to do that with my wwf lockups.
