Wordfeud update

December 11, 2012

We’ve just released new updates for Android and iOS. We’ve fixed a few bugs, and added a couple of nice features. For instance, Wordfeud will now tell you which words were not accepted if you try to play one or more invalid words.

Other changes in these updates are as follows:

Wordfeud for Android v2.1:

  • Can now use camera to set profile picture. Note that we had to add the “read external storage” permission for this feature.
  • Show warning if passing the round will cause game to end.
  • Bugfix: avoid showing multiple connection error dialogs on top of one another.

Wordfeud for iOS v2.3:

  • Show warning if passing the round will cause game to end.
  • Redesigned the “new game” flow to reduce clutter.
  • (iPad) Made the tile a bit larger when picked up and dragged around the screen.
  • (iPad) Made it a bit more difficult to accidentally resign the game.
  • Fixed a bug made it impossible to invite people from the contact list.
  • Fixed a launch timeout affecting some users.
  • Fixed a crash when navigating away from the “Invite Facebook Friend” screen.
  • Optimizations for smoother scrolling in the friend list.

    Wat handig zou zijn is als je woorden kunt proberen terwijl je op de beurt van de tegenpartij wacht.

    Thanks for the Windows update. It is nice to play against android and iOS users. Just still wait those new features.

  3. Jutul permalink

    Hello. Love the app. I miss a statistical view where I can se how many wins I have had against an opponent. Is it possible to incorporate that in the next update? Thank you.

    where is the update for wp7.8
    Its a shame.
    if you own a windowsphone, don’t buy this crap, the people who have made this wil forget you.

    • martin permalink

      agreed. Several updates, but none of these features…:-(

    Letter handout does not seem really true random. Way too often you get too many mutiple letter hands.. like 3 d’s and 2 i’s and 3 a’s. While this happens in reals scrabble… it happens far less often. Also there should be a close / delete account feature included.

    • Pommi permalink

      I agree, on letter handout. :-). I always quickly receive q and x ‘s aso.
      Also I dont get why words like TV, or IQ, EQ are not accepted.
      Also names of the months.


      • I understand IQ TV are abbreviations but I do not understand why the month of the year are not accepted.

      • Pommi permalink

        You say “abbrev.” … Certainly in the Dutch language (I forgot to mention that, sorry) IQ or EQ and – most of the time – the terms HQ and TV are used ‘On their own’ and not written full-out. But It is what it is… ;-(.

    • arma brouwer permalink

      Again a comment from me on the ‘random’ hand out of letters. I read an older comment from a Richard Brekne and I must agree. Since last week it appears that one either gets E, A etc (and lots of them) or just the other wat around. Statistically is is not possible. What is wrong?
      I must say that things were a lot better for a long time.

  6. Gijs permalink

    I would love the new score-numbers when placing letters to be Green when accepted words are placed and Red when they are not accepted. It will speed up the game a lot!

  7. I have tried entering months of the year and they not accepted , for example June

  8. II love the app. My problem is when I try to type one of the months of the year late june it says not dictionary and does not allow it. In the fix on the horizon for that?

    I bought the app on a WP 7.5, had wonderful games… Lately i changed to a Lumia 920 on WP8 a re-bought the app because i used another MS Account for my new phone. But it can’t be used at all !!! I can’t even move the letters in my stack… They stay between two positions and then the app crashes. I think an update for WP is due ! Thanks in advance

  10. Lars Bo permalink

    Nice feature with the bubble telling the points for the move. You could improve by using color or the bubble, eg. Red indicating it is a false move and green fo legal move.

  11. MzWizOfOz permalink

    Love the new changes however in the old version I did like the contents of a message appearing for a second when opening a game.
    PLEASE develop a way to easily identify the blanks once placed on the board so players don’t have to view each minute tile to count if all blanks are used.

  12. Romeo103long permalink

    Best word game out point blank period but is it possible to make a update that gives me the ability to delete messages thx for the perfect game though

  13. Hi, love The app!!! Just one problem, i play alot with my dad, and he sometimes hits resign by accident. And it isn’t protected by a “are you sure?” Popup. Any wat this could be added? Position for That button isn’t logical i think…


  14. leda fretas permalink

    Updates are great, but there are a lot of words that are not listed in this game’s dictionary….such as the word ‘zen’…… not sure what English dictionary is used but there should be a lot of words added to this game.

  15. Ruid Koendering permalink

    Worked with the paud version. Had to reset my phone and can not download the paged version.


  16. Thomas Fry permalink

    Since the last update my notifications on my htc evo do not work. if you could correct this problem it would be greatly appreciated. thank you

  17. Liliane Hoogeveen permalink

    After update I lost my games on iPhone . I can only play on iPad . I can only see that there is a made a move

  18. Joel permalink

    Having just upgraded from an iPhone to a Nokia with Windows 8, the primitiveness of the Windows version is quite a shock.
    Come on people. If you’re going to charge us for it, give us something worth paying for.

  19. Piet permalink

    Please remove the resign button from the main screen… Twice this week I resigned by accident.

  20. Daniel permalink

    And now suddenly i cant add new games again? Why? I have android ICS.

  21. Shaun permalink

    Can you fix it so a game takes longer to automatically resign? It is annoying when I go back to play and the game has been resigned.

  22. I hate the use of cheats. People with a small vocubular earn points by finding lots of exeptional words in notime.

  23. macrobody permalink

    How about mulitple players in one game? Is it possible?

  24. PatrickR permalink


    As the proud owner of a new Lumia 920 (my wife has the 820) both coming from iPhone we would love to see all the iPhone features in the Windows Phone version. At least the update of today has hopefully solved the longtime crashing bugs. Please let us paying customers get some service! Love your game.

  25. How can I report a bug? All my games have disappeared on my phone. I’m logged in but there are no games

  26. Caz permalink

    Love the game but what exactly is “International English”? It certainly doesn’t include Australian words and some of the “words” it lets through are beyond my dictionary.

  27. Yvonne bakers permalink

    Could we have a stats view of games won and lost in the next update please

  28. Patrik permalink


    Where is the development blog for wp8?


  29. Dieter Clavey permalink

    Hej! Why doesn’t the swedish dictionary accept the words “ETAT, AUTOMAT, ATOM” and the dubblewords “HAGELstorm, ISstorm”? Thanks in advance, Yours Dieter.

  30. Thomas permalink

    Bug in latest version for iphone:

    * crashes on startup. Tried to uninstall/Remove to no avail.
    * when reinstalling the app, I choose ‘already have an account’. Are promted for the username/email but are not prompted for the password!! When i hit login, i get “oops please provide password’, but i Can not!

  31. You are so interesting! I do not believe I’ve truly read through anything like that before. So wonderful to discover another person with some genuine thoughts on this subject. Really.. many thanks for starting this up. This site is one thing that is needed on the web, someone with some originality!

  32. It would be really awesome if there was an option for multi player games!! AM

  33. janice permalink

    How do u resign, everyone else can but me. thxs

  34. Andrew permalink

    Can some please tell me what is up with the blank tiles? When I try to use them it pulls up two blocks with parciale letters and won’t let me use it.. Is it a glitch or am I doing somthing wrong cus it annoying..

  35. milan maskey permalink

    Your dictionary doesn’t have the word july….which is seventh month

  36. Urinzto permalink

    Check out the Wordfeud tile counter app ‘Pricka’, that’s available for free on the App store:

    It works with all languages, except for Spanish, and helps you track which tiles have been played in the game.

  37. WF
    Another bug
    Sometimes ending a game tiles are added in the wrong way.
    In my last desperate move I added an “X”, using an “E” in a word and then got both the 9 points for EX and the points from the whole word the “E” included, which gave me 17 and I won, but unintentionally…

  38. lennie permalink

    I have a Windows phone and I think a little updating wf for that would be appropriate. Fx I would love to see how many hos I ret berøre submitting a word. Egen will that happen?


  39. Ozoer permalink

    Wordfeud is a lovely easy and simpel game.
    Why installing all these extra features.
    The one that disturbes me the most is the one that tells me how long my opponent is playing the game. I like to very much advise the developpers to remove this feature.
    Keep the game as simpel as possible.
    That is the power of the game!

  40. hello there and thank you for your info – I’ve certainly picked up something new from right here. I did however expertise a few technical issues using this website, since I experienced to reload the website a lot of times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and can damage your high-quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Well I am adding this RSS to my email and could look out for much more of your respective fascinating content. Make sure you update this again soon.

  41. Won’t stop loading

  42. kris permalink

    Hi, I’ve always been able to play QS as a valid word in the Dutch version. Suddenly I cannot anymore … how come?

  43. Sandraak permalink

    I can’t play the game anymore cause every time i try to login, it says ‘oops, please enter your password’.
    I really don’t know what my password is and even if i did, there’s no space to fill it in!
    I erased and than downloaded the game a couple of times, same story over and over!
    How can i solve this problem??
    I want to play again, asap!!

  44. Peter Handest permalink

    Hello. For some time now, the radomisation of the letters in the Danish game has seemed to be les random than desired. In all games i experience that many letters come in groups. Ie. All the O’s come at the same time, so you May sit with there and you opponent with two. The same goes for the more rare letters such as v or ø.
    I know that this Can be expected in one or two games, but i have been seeing it in every game for a White now.
    Could you please look into it? It tales a lot of the fun out of the game when there is a big chance that Your opponent are sitting with the same rare letters as you do yourself.
    Do you keep tap of the letters distributed? If you dó, it Should be quite easy to see if what i claim is correct.

    Hvorfor kommer ikke disse nye funksjonene til WP? Burde ikke dette kommet samtidig? Blir ikke dette oppdatert snart sletter jeg spillet. Spiller egentlig med handicap når alle andre får beskjed om hvilket ord som feil, bare ikke de med Windows Phone

  46. Hi there, I enjoy reading all of your post. I like to write a
    little comment to support you.

  47. valerie permalink
