Words with Friends temporarily banned Googly Eyes-bring back the eyeballs! And, New Toys, someone better let female dogs know that 'bitch' is not a word-at least according to Words with Friends. Someone at New Toys needs a dictionary, cuz there's quite a few words in the English language that the app isn't recognizing. C'mon, New Toy, get some fixes going!
Especially the updating loop is getting old. Words with Friends is obviously outgrowing its server capabilities, and you can't have growth without some investment to make that happen. It's a bit hard to play when one of the most popular apps has got some serious server problems updating and gets stuck in a repeating loop-your users are constantly having to reinstall the app and it's getting weary. Whether it's the 'OOPS' message or the 'Sending...' message, it's tiresome to be deleting and reinstalling Words with Friends repeatedly. New Toys lists only one fix for those stuck server issues, so here it is:
The only Words with Friends app fix: delete and reinstall. Turning off the iPhone or iTouch won't solve the 'Sending' loop problem. The Words with Friends error is sometimes displayed as a 408 error but most commonly simply reads 'Sending'. New Toys Inc, get it together-you've got thousands experiencing this problem if you read your own customer reviews on your website. The New Toys Inc website offers only this fix: -delete the app from your iPhone -download and reinstall the Words with Friends app again -turn the iPhone ir iPod Touch entirely off (press the Home & On/off key until the Apple appears for the iPhone, top button held down for the iPod Touch) -Open Words with Friends and the app should update successfully (hopefully without losing previous games)
YES, SOMETIMES THE PROCESS HAS TO BE REPEATED SEVERAL TIMES FOR THE APP TO FIX AND WORK AGAIN
