    Does anyone else have a problem where WWF locks the phone up when entering? It started today on both my wife's and my phone.

    It was locking my phone up consistently, so I uninstalled it almost immediately

    I've been using it for weeks now with no problems, so I am not sure what is up or why it's happening on two phones.

    I know you weren't looking for alternative suggestions, but have you tried Words by Post? Much better, no annoying ads you have to watch, no lockups, and it is much quicker at updating moves.

    I'll check it out, thanks! I also use Alphajax so I could probably just phase out wwf.

    I can't believe WwF is so popular. It's such a buggy POS compared to WordFeud.

    It ended up working again (for now) on both phones. Doesn't inspire much confidence in WP8, though, when a fairly trivial app can lock the host OS up that tightly.

    Not saying it's WP8 or WWF fault, but when the app will not allow you to play any word starting with Z, it doesn't speak well for the app.
