How Do I Stop Pop-Ups In Words With Friends

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Android, iOS

Shawn from Minnesota writes:

I play Words With Friends on my tablet and every single time I make a move an ad pops up. I have to watch at least a few seconds of it before I can get back to the game. How can I get rid of these pop-ups?

There’s one solution, Shawn. You can pay for the full version of Words With Friends.  It will cost you $4.99, but you will be spared those commercials. Otherwise, those ads are just the price you pay for your “free” app.

    The weekly challenge has completely taken the fun out of playing Words With Fridnds. Most of the friends I play against hate it as well. I am considering deleting my paid version. And giving up the game. Please give us the option to opt out of Weekly Challdnges.

    Myself and ALL of my friends are opting NOT to ever play WWF. We have a friend who is going to build another app with different name with NO ads.

      Interesting idea. That’s how great new products are born. How does he plan to support the online gameplay? By charging for the app? Or will it be limited to off line gaming? Or is he willing to support a server for just friends to play on?

  6. Deena says:

    Cannot play anymore ! The pop up ad keeps appearing on the right hand corner hiding the play sign!

  7. Deena says:

    Cannot play due to pop up ad on right hand corner !

    • Suzanne says:

      I cannot use the chat portion because the pop up ad covers it.. Makes me extremely frustrated. How can I delete or move that ad?

  8. Neil says:

    Happy to pay, but there doesn’t seem to be a premium game available on the Aps store any more. Absolutely sick of the ads. When will Zynga get the message!!

  9. John says:

    There’s a”remove ads” option hidden in the menus (settings) but it’ll set you back$13. That’s a bit cheeky, especially as it was$2.99 in 2011 and $4.99 in 2014. I recommend uninstalling it and trying the competition.

  10. Lona J. says:

    Accidentally erases words with friends with no ads. How do I get it back .? Can’t find in App Store. Am willing to pay as before

  11. Jennie says:

    I know I can pay to play, and I can put up with the ads, but it’s not fair that their is no way to get rid if them. Whe they appear.

  12. Andrea says:

    Anyone know how I can get rid of the pop up ‘want to know when it’s your turn?’ It pops up constantly, I tick no, but it’s back within seconds. They just won’t get the message! I’m NOT INTERESTED, however desperate they are! Any ideas, befiore I just stop playing the game?

  13. Dennis says:

    Have the pay version on my old iphone 4. upgraded to a samsung note 3 do i have to buy it again?

  14. Sandy says:

    Pup ups block me from chatting on WWF. How can I get the chat bar back

  15. Vera Smith says:

    I can’t get the ad off the new WWF!! HELP!!!

  16. Vera Smith says:

    I can’t get the ad off the new version of WWF. HELP!!!

  17. Donnie says:

    the app. that comes on after ‘every’ play to let your opponent know IT’S YOUR TURN-i’ve tried everything and it’s SO ANNOYING, get rid of it. i hate being forced to deal with things and it ruins the game-i made a block for the bottom of my ‘flat screen’ with black cardboard to COVER YOUR ANNOYING ADDS that cannot be ‘opted out’

  18. Peggy says:

    I don’t mind the ads so much, but some seem to require you to shut down because there is no way to close it… please help!
