Tons of improvements to performance and stability!
Loads of bug fixes!
We’ve got more great features on the way, so let us know what you’d like to see next!

Did you notice the part about the Words with Friends Store?
That was the update on December 29th that added the ability to buy enhancements to your Words with Friends games. One enhancement is the ability to block ads, but more controversial by some commentators is the ability to buy features to give advantages that your opponent does not get. One is Tile Pile, which tells you quantities of letters remaining. The Count, tells you the score of your words as you put them down, and before you submit. Lastly, Word-o-Meter tells you a strength of your word compared to other ones you could make with your rack. Yes, a player could always figure these type of items by other means, but what do you think about buying these type of advantages?
